RUIN The Waking

RUIN The Waking




To judge and execute. That is Ruin's power and desire. But Ruin's memory is empty of how he came to be here on Earth and why. After saving Isadore-- a neuroscientist living in the swamps of Louisiana-- from a sexual predator, she volunteers to help him. 

Ruin soon discovers that judging and executing wicked humans while linked to such a difficult and beautiful woman who can't help but involve herself in every aspect of his business, is proving to be more difficult than judging the world.

Bonded By Blood Characters - Amice & Veronique


Bio: Amice Cartier
Occupation: Gypsy fortune teller
Height: 4' 8"
Weight: 105 lbs (7.5 stones)
Age: Unknown (but estimated in her mid-80s)
Role: Mentor and friend to Broderick MacDougal in Midnight Conquest, Book 1 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles




A Gypsy...and so much more!

Amice Cartier and Broderick MacDougal crossed paths when Broderick rescued her granddaughter Veronique from drowning at the age of five. Amice was eternally grateful to Broderick, but her sixth senses told her what he was and she, at first, shied away from him. Vamsyrians are not known for their generosity and compassion, so Amice took a chance to become more social with Broderick and invited him to sit by their fire to dry off from the river...and she read his palm. Even then, Amice told Broderick how unique he was, especially amongst his own kind, though Broderick still is not certain exactly how different he is or why. However, the nurturing Amice expressed was something Broderick needed at the time. As a result, he felt drawn to her and accepted her invitation to join their band of traveling vagabonds. Over the years, Amice became somewhat of a replacement for Broderick's mother, Moira. Amice taught Broderick how to perfect his mind-reading abilities granted by immortality, and he learned palm reading in order to compliment his supernatural gifts. With Amice telling fortunes by day, and Broderick telling them at night, they made a very good team!


Most Popular Quote from Amice Cartier

“You just keep invading my mind and we will see how fiery I can get! I will cast a spell on you, and you…you will fall in love with a chicken!” She nodded emphatically.

A curse Amice said to Broderick MacDougal in Midnight Conquest, Book 1 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles - Click to Tweet 




Bio: Veronique Cartier
Occupation: Gypsy
Height: 5' 4"
Weight: 118 lbs (8.4 stones)
Age: 18
Role: "Little Sister" to Broderick MacDougal in Midnight Conquest, Book 1 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles




Yep! She's a bee-otch!

Veronique Cartier did start out as a cute, young child. Unfortunately, her grandmother Amice spoiled her to make up for the loss of her daughter Monique, and perhaps even doted on her granddaughter as a salve to her guilty conscience for not being able to save Monique from her self-destructive behavior (see below). When Broderick MacDougal came into Veronique's life, he was a larger-than-life, knight in shining armor who rescued her from a watery grave. With an overly affectionate and spoiling grandmother and a rogue of a Gypsy for a male role model, poor Veronique didn't have much of a chance at being a very loving woman. Her upbringing unknowingly produced a very selfish little girl who just wanted to be loved...and she'd do anything to get that love. Such is the stage that is set for Midnight Conquest and Davina's misfortune at having crossed the path of this self-centered Gypsy.



Most Popular Quote from Veronique Cartier



The young French girl’s voice dropped to a desperate whisper. “I give you my blood and my heart.” Stepping closer to him, she opened her blouse, baring her breasts. “And my body.”

Facts About Amice & Veronique NOT in the Books

Readers will FINALLY get to learn what happened to Monique! Read on...oh, and please Click to Tweet!
The life of a Gypsy was all Amice had ever known. Her mother Anna Ribault was a French Gypsy, who fell in love with an aristocrat in Paris. Unfortunately, the nobleman only used Anna for his own pleasures. When Anna told him they would be having a child together, a product of their love, he banished Anna from his presence. This, of course, broke Anna's heart and she acted rashly, exposing the nobleman for his callous behavior. Unfortunately, as a Gypsy Anna was ridiculed and the nobleman's wife ordered Anna stoned in the city square. Anna's Gypsy clan rescued her from the public execution and they all fled Paris. Anna never told Amice who her father was.
Amice grew up amongst the French Gypsies, where she eventually fell in love with Maurice Cartier, her childhood friend and one of the Gypsies in her clan. They had a daughter, Monique. Maurice died in a horse riding accident when Monique was just thirteen, so she went into deep despair over losing her father. Unfortunately, that caused Monique to look for the affection of men...who were many, either in spite of or a direct result of Amice's strict hold on her daughter. Monique became pregnant with Veronique - father unknown.
Amice ended up rearing her granddaughter due to Monique's obsession with finding someone to love her. Monique's pursuit for romance led her into the bed of a Selkie male named Amund Osvald. Once Monique discovered what he was, she found his seal skin and hid it from him. Though Selkie women are known for being bound to a human male in such a situation, male Selkies are not so forgiving or compliant. No matter what Amice said to get Monique to return the Selkie's skin, Monique refused and was confident she had finally found her true love who could never leave her as long as she always kept the skin concealed. Her hidden treasure would be the death of her. Amund found the skin and killed Monique before he returned to the sea.
Veronique was too young to understand what happened to her mother and thought Amund had taken her mother with him to the sea...so she went into the river looking for her mother. And that is how Broderick saved Veronique from drowning.



Midnight Eclipse - Book 4 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles

Book Blurb

Broderick MacDougal follows the familiar yearning of his soul to a fierce warrior who is as seductive as a siren at sea - and she is just as deadly. The world of the supernatural opens to Broderick as he not only finds himself in the midst of an ancient war of shapeshifters, but the devious Cordelia Lynn Harley has re-entered his life and has a few of her own surprises.
Born into a hated race of Norse wolf shifters, Celina Hunter knows all too well the dangers of trusting anyone other than her two brothers. And yet the survival of her family hinges on trusting the strangely familiar vampire, a natural enemy of her kind…yet her tribe’s Shaman advisers confirm he is her soul mate. Enemy or not, Celina slips into the spell of Broderick's promises of eternal love, gambling with all she holds dear.
Broderick and Celina are bound by a curse, but having come this far through the centuries, Broderick is not about to risk his chance at having his soul mate for eternity. The price, however, may be more than Celina is willing to pay as there is more at stake than just her immortal soul. Click to Tweet

Release Day Blitz: Forsaken by Kristen Day










Once you’ve been touched by darkness, it never leaves you…

Abandoned by her parents as an infant; seventeen year old Hannah spent her childhood wading through countless foster families until being adopted by the Whitmans three years ago. Unfortunately, Atlanta’s high society wasn’t quite ready for Hannah…or the strange events that plague her.

Chilling visions of murder, unexplained hallucinations, and a dark, mysterious guy who haunts her nightmares all culminate to set in motion a journey of self-discovery that will challenge everything she’s ever believed; not to mention her sanity.

Sent to live at The House of Lorelei on Bald Head Island, NC for ‘kids like her’, Hannah quickly realizes things are not what they seem. Her fellow ‘disturbed’ teens are actually the descendants of mythical Sea Gods and Goddesses. And so is she.

But when Finn, the ghost from her dreams, appears in the flesh; her nightmares become reality and her dark visions begin coming true. Inexplicably drawn to him, she can’t deny the dangerous hold he has on her heart. The deadly secrets he harbors will ultimately test her courage and push the boundaries of her love.

She must decide if she is ready to embrace the ancient legend she is prophesized to be a part of. The fate of all the descendants will forever depend upon it.

About Kristen Day






  
I am a southern belle at heart with a crazy streak that desperately tries to escape at every opportunity. I love all things nostalgic, rustic, and quirky. I’ve been told I see the world through rose-colored glasses, but I prefer to think of them as kaleidoscope glasses – swirling and morphing reality into something I can digest (who hasn’t pretended those pasty lima beans were really kiwi strawberry jelly beans?).
When I’m not writing I’m making jewelry, painting, drinking sweet tea, watching the discovery channel, or going on random adventures in the mountains of North Carolina with my amazing husband.

BOOK SYNOPSIS

There are no words for desire this hot…but he’ll sure try to find them. The Boot Knockers Ranch, Book 2
If there’s one thing that Damian Vince can do well, it’s read women. With his trademark wink and sexy drawl, he’s the most wanted cowboy on the Boot Knockers Ranch, a spa where sexually challenged women come to get charmed out of their uptight panties.
He’s also the ranch’s bad boy—he hates to admit he’s had his mug-shot taken more than once. But now he’s on the right path, ranching and fulfilling women’s desires.
Prim grade-school teacher Ruthie Johansson prays Damian will be able to fix her strict upbringing that’s left her leery of men and intercourse, though her body aches for both. Once she sets eyes on the muscular, auburn-haired Damian, she throbs only for him.
As they get skin to skin, her instinct touches something Damian’s been struggling to hide from his fellow Boot Knockers. A secret he’s spent a lifetime keeping buried beneath bar brawls and a bad attitude. But with Ruthie’s gentle coaxing, he just might give overcoming it another try—as long as they do their homework in bed.
Warning: Contains a bad boy with a vulnerable underside, a squeaky clean woman who wants to get dirty, and a secret shame only love and compassion can heal. Prepare to drool while he parses her sentences…one sexy verb at a time.

EXCERPT
Ruthie clasped her hands and fought to keep from wringing them. The backstage area was alive with chatter. Excited giggles echoed around her as she waited for the cowboys.
She looked at the other women. They were as diverse as the cowboys on the brochure. Women with every shade of hair and body type huddled together, some talking quietly about what to expect.
With a knot of nausea in her throat, Ruthie didn’t feel like speaking. Besides, when she stepped onto the stage, she would be alone. No one could save her from what she’d chosen to do.
Isabel, the stage manager, buzzed between girls, dashing notes on her clipboard. “You’re up third, Ruthie.”
Nodding, she battled the urge to bolt for the door. Boarding the jet to Texas had given her the illusion she was going on a nice vacation. But once she’d arrived at the ranch and been taken into a private screening room to choose from a selection of cowboys, her real purpose hit hard.
She’d come to find the most sexual pleasure she’d ever known, which would be easy considering she hadn’t found it with her former lovers.
Images of the five cowboys she’d selected revolved through her mind. They were in the audience right now. In a few minutes she’d step onto the stage and they’d fight over who would win her.
She dragged in a wavering gasp just as Isabel announced the first contestant was to take the stage.
Holding her breath with the rest of the women, Ruthie watched from the sidelines as a tall girl with a pretty face and dishwater-blonde hair stood before the cowboys.
Ruthie’s mind clouded, and she stared at her simple, flat leather sandals. How had she gotten here? From the third-grade classroom to a sex club. Her face burned.
By the time she lifted her gaze again, the first woman was coming offstage.
With a cowboy.
Ruthie felt her jaw drop as she came face-to-face with the dashing, muscled man in worn denim, boots and hat. His shirt was blue plaid, sleeves rolled to his elbows, displaying a tattoo of a rodeo belt buckle on his forearm.
“Take good care of her, Elliot,” Isabel said with a grin.
He tipped his hat at Isabel and hooked the woman’s arm more securely over his. He led her through the throng of women and out the side door.
Oh my God. Oh my God.
Ruthie gasped for breath when contestant number two took the stage. She wore ill-fitting clothes that disguised her body. When she took her place in the spotlight, she smiled, and her whole appearance transformed.
“I wish we could hear what they’re saying,” someone beside Ruthie whispered.
Me too. What should she expect? More Q&A? How would she ever keep her knees from knocking when faced with all that testosterone?
“Get ready, Ruthie. It’s almost your turn.”
The knot in her belly pulled tight, and she was pretty sure she knew what expression she wore. In the classroom, it was one she’d come to recognize early—right before the cleanup.
Contestant number two came off stage, grinning like Miss America and guided by a tanned hunk with his hand on the small of her back.
Ruthie shivered, more aware of herself than ever before. Within minutes she’d be that girl, and she’d have some cowboy’s hand on her.
All OVER me with any luck.
“Ruthie, you’re on!”
Sucking in a deep breath, she stepped onto the stage. Her sandals were almost noiseless on the polished floor. As soon as she stepped into the spotlight, she broke out in a sweat. Her watermelon-colored cotton sundress clung to her damp skin, and she squeezed her fingers together until her knuckles popped.
Her heart throbbed heavily in her ears. Through the glare of lights, she could just make out the line of cowboys. They sat in plush leather chairs with red buttons before them.
Oh my God, I’ve landed on a game show. And I’m the prize.

In the world of pain and pleasure, Charles Damien Macavoy reigned. He was a man apart, one who require more than most. He was a Master of BDSM. He’d been asked by another Dom and good friend to train the Dom’s current sub and love interest. Charles had trained many, but found himself attracted to his new trainee.
He was aware the fascination would wear off, it always did, and he’d returned the trainee to her Master willing and ready to submit. Lurking in the shadows of a world few are accustomed to is evil. Sometimes a thing of beauty has hidden thorns. Sometimes the hunter becomes the hunted.


  Dom teaser 2


Excerpt


“You’re smiling rather devilishly at me Sir,” Samantha whispered. “Am I?” he answered back waiting to see her response. “Yes I can just imagine what’s going through your mind with tonight looming before us.” Her smile was slightly crooked but very sexy. He was enjoying their little repartee. “What’s going through my mind Samantha is seeing you knelt down before me with your lips around the shaft of my cock.” He watched her blush and was amused that she could be embarrassed so quickly. Or was that heat that flushed her cheeks. “Sir, you’re getting me wet.”


✦✦About Ethan Radcliff✦✦


ethanselfie1


I've been writing since I was a kid. I love creating and tried my hand at art, not bad but not good enough. A guy's gotta eat. Through high school I wrote erotic stories, kept them in a notebook, let a few of my girlfriends read them. Yeah, played football, baseball, but my brain never stopped thinking of sex. I guess we think about it all the time. Been on face book for a while never did anything interesting when I was on until I started to see all the writers and then some poets posting their erotic prose. Men who were writing erotic romance and stories, I knew it was my time to get out the old note book and throw on some poems. Some are old and some are new, the ones about BDSM are newer. In high school or college I wasn't on that train of thought. I see a picture it sets me off. A see an attractive women it sets me off. The jiggle of a full ass or heavy breasts, get me going. Yeah, my mind always is on a beautiful face or body.
