Snippet Sunday: “Don’t Blink!” The Gryphon & His Thief @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday #SPeekSunday

Welcome to Snippet Sunday. I thought I'd change it up a little this week. I have a new release! So this is a snippet from The Gryphon and His Thief.

If you missed the last weeks snippet from Soul Taker, here's the link. :) Chapter 1 #14 

Set up: Calli Angelis broke into the Museum of Cursed Antiquities to steal Hecate's Stone. With the item in her hand she's making her way out of the museum to only come up short when a statue once positioned in the back room is now blocking the front door to freedom.

***********************************************************

"Get a grip," she warned herself. The Gryphon didn't blink his eyes. Yep, and it didn't fly from the back room and station itself at the door either. She gulped and leveled the beam of the flashlight on the statue once more. Only what stood there now was a man, a large man with dark hair and eyes… that glowed like the Gryphon's eyes had.

"You cannot take the item from the museum," the man's voice boomed low and with authority meant to intimidate, his words flavored with a Greek accent. "You must return it immediately," he finished the threat. Sure there had been no threat voiced, but she all but heard the 'or else'.

***********************************************************

 Will Calli escape with the stone...and her life?

I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek at the Gryphon and His Thief.

Thanks for stopping by!

Blurb:

Some Treasures are Priceless…

A long time ago, a Gryphon shifter’s duty was to guard and protect the people of the tribes, but Darrien Andros failed to keep his human wife safe from harm. Cursed for the crime, he must guard everything in the Museum of Cursed Antiquities forever, never to truly live and never to die. Centuries have passed, but when he encounters a thief, who uncannily resembles his dead wife, he is convinced he has a second chance.

Calli Angelis is hired to steal Hecate's Stone from the Museum, believing she would be returning it to its rightful owner. She never really trusted the person who hired her and now Darrien makes her doubt her motives, too. He also has her questioning the possibility of reincarnation when the attraction between them ignites into something she can no longer ignore.

As the two work together to unravel the mysteries behind the stone, it becomes apparent an old and dangerous enemy from Darrien’s past is determined to have history repeat itself.

He’s livin’ off the person’s essence—their soul. Soul Taker @KMNbooks #8sunday #snippetsunday #SPeekSunday

Welcome to Snippet Sunday. This is a snippet from Soul Taker.

If you missed the last weeks snippet, here's the link. :)  Chapter 1 #13

Set up:
Harrison just asked Garran if the Soul Taker is from his sept as Sanya claimed. Garran is speaking first.

***********************************************************

"Aye, he's from my sept. I knew the killin's were like a Grim Sith's. He's livin' off the person's essence—their soul. However, he's leavin' just enough to keep the body alive. For a while, it will throw off the authorities," he said and sighed in frustration. "Centuries ago, the Bobhan Sith, the females of our sept, used to cover their tracks by rippin' the victim to shreds in hopes the villagers would think they were attacked by a wild animal."

"How lovely?"

"Hmm… Aye, doesn't work so well in the city," Garran said thoughtfully, recognizing Harrison's sarcasm for what it was.

***********************************************************

You probably wouldn't want to cross paths with a Bobhan Sith.

No soul is safe…

A vampire from the Grim Sith sept is sucking the souls out of young women from the Boston area, but this sinister crime is far worse than a vampire seeking substance. He’s selling the souls to the highest bidder and it seems business is booming.
A vampire, a werewolf, and a Necromancer are a most unlikely team, but Garran, Harrison, and Isabella plan on putting a kink in the dubbed Soul Taker’s plans. It’s personal now. One of their friends has fallen victim to the Soul Taker’s charms, but to stop him from hurting anyone else, their efforts may involve raising the dead.

Snippet Sunday: What was he thinking?… Soul Taker @KMNbooks @RebeccaJVickery #8sunday #snippetsunday #SPeekSunday

Welcome to Snippet Sunday. This is a snippet from Soul Taker.

If you missed the last weeks snippet, here's the link. :) Chapter 1 #12

Set up:
Sanya has agreed to spy on the Soul Taker and keep tabs on him... or so Garran hopes. Harrison and Garran discuss if Sanya will remain loyal...

***********************************************************

Garran waited until the beautiful Latino sashayed out of sight. He found it difficult to believe he'd once thought the selfish beauty was his soul mate. He glanced at Harrison who stood there with a hand on his hip and shaking his head. "Don't say it, Harrison," he warned him.

"I don't have to. That woman will double cross you, to be sure."

"Aye, but she's the only one who has gotten close to the fiend who calls me kin. We need her to smoke him out so we can clean up the mess Franco didn't."

***********************************************************

What was Garran thinking? He thought Sanya was his soul mate? lol He may have been really...really...really... lonely to believe that. :)

Snippet Sunday: A stern warning given… Soul Taker @KMNbooks @RebeccaJVickery #8sunday #snippetsunday #SPeekSunday

Welcome to Snippet Sunday. This is a snippet from Soul Taker.

If you missed the last weeks snippet, here's the link. :) Chapter 1 #11

Set up:
Sanya is free... well sort of. She must spy on the 'Soul Taker', but first Garran gives her a stern warning.

This snippet takes place a few sentences later from last week's snippet.

***Note: The snippet has been modified to fit the 8 sentence limit. Warning: There may be some fancy punctuations and long sentences. :)

***********************************************************

She glared at him, wishing her gaze could burst him into flames. She saw the trick once in a movie, and she really wished it were a true talent she could learn.

Regaining most of her strength, she pushed him away and scrambled out of the van. She straightened her dress that had risen up her thighs.

"No more human attacks," Garran warned, "Ye'll go back to the pig's blood."

"I'll be shaky for days and look like a junkie."

Garran's gaze raked over her, and said, "Ye already look the part with the slip ye have on that's doin' a piss poor job of masqueradin' as a dress."

She hissed baring her fangs.

***********************************************************

Sanya is on her way. Hopefully, she heeds Garran's warning.

Elegant Floral Frame BackgroundLabor Day Special! Lost in the Mist of Time is on sale for only 99 cents! Lost in the Mist of Time - Kindle edition by Karen Michelle Nutt. Literature & Fiction Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.

Aislinn Hennessy pens tales of courage, loyalty, and true love, but her heroes of old are pure fantasy—figments of her imagination. She long ago gave up thinking a knight in shining armor would sweep her off her feet, but then she never expected to run him off the road either.

Sir Dougray Fitzpatrick has buried one wife and vows to never love again—but destiny has other plans for this 16th century Irish Lord. During a battle, a mist separates Dougray from his men and casts him into the future. Dougray must return to Dunhaven and to his century, but Aislinn follows him into the mist, leaving him no choice, but to take her home with him.

Conspiracies, feuds and unexpected violence are commonplace threats, but along the way, Aislinn and Dougray discover a surprise neither one expects: a chance for love even when they're Lost in the Mist of Time.

"I can do that." Really, was she in any position to say otherwise?

"Oh, come on Garran, you don't actually believe her," Harrison Connell spoke up.

"Why don't you keep quiet, Irish dog," Sanya hissed.

"You will mind yer manners, Sanya," Garran told her. "Let me warn ye if ye double cross me, havin' a stake through yer heart will seem like a holiday."

"I wouldn't double cross you."

He pulled out the stake and she inhaled, the pain causing her to grip his arms.

***********************************************************

Sanya was set free. Hopefully, she'll keep her word and report back to Garran about the Soul Taker's next moves.

***********************************************************

"I would have to go, since obviously, there's been bad blood between you two, in more ways than one," she said with a chuckle, but Garran didn't crack a smile at her pun. She cleared her throat before she spoke again, "If he sees you, he'd only disappear again."

"Do ye expect me to believe ye, Sanya?"

"I'm at your mercy, am I not? I'll—"

Garran covered her mouth with his index finger. "I don't want to meet with him. I want ye to get close to him, and find out what he's up to."

"You want me to spy on him," she said not as a question, but he answered with a prompt, aye.

Snippet Sunday: Chatting with the Soul Taker @KMNbooks @RebeccaJVickery #8sunday #snippetsunday #SPeekSunday

Welcome to Snippet Sunday. This is a snippet from Soul Taker.

If you missed the last weeks snippet, here's the link. :) Chapter 1 #8

Set up:
Sanya has been staked, but vampires don't perish from such a wound, They are only paralyzed, but can still communicate. Sanya tells Garran about her last conversation with the Soul Taker... Sanya is speaking first.

This snippet takes place a few paragraphs later from last week's snippet.

***********************************************************

"I mentioned how I once knew a highlander Grim Sith. I swear the blood in his veins clotted and he became as still as stone." She cleared her throat as the statement reminded her of her predicament. "Anyway he says you and him were kin. Alexander, that's his name." If she didn't know better, she'd swear MacLaurin's face paled even more than his usual fair skin appearance. Vampires tended to be lighter skinned due to never being out in the sun, but MacLaurin was once a Highlander, they were all pale as paper in her opinion, vampire or not.

"Where can I find him?" His eyes narrowed.

***********************************************************

Thanks for stopping by! Find out next week if Sanya knows where Alexander is staying.

Snippet Sunday: Sanya reveals her admiration for the Soul Taker @KMNbooks @RebeccaJVickery #8sunday #snippetsunday #SPeekSunday

Welcome to Snippet Sunday. This is a snippet from Soul Taker.

If you missed the last weeks snippet, here's the link. :) Chapter #1 #7

Set up:
Sanya has been staked, but vampires don't perish from such a wound, They are only paralyzed, but can still communicate. She must give Garran a good reason to remove the stake or suffer the consequences.

This snippet takes place a few paragraphs later from last week's snippet.

***Note: The snippet has been modified to fit the 8 sentence limit. Warning: There may be some fancy punctuations and long sentences. :)

***********************************************************

"There's vamp's claiming to be the new leader of this territory," she hurried to say, "and he's like you, too."

Garran's hands gripped her shoulders and pulled her up so he could look her in the eyes as he spoke, "What do ye mean like me?"

"He's from Scotland, if his brogue is any indication, and he looks like an angel, but… there's something dark in him. He takes sucking the life out of his victims to a new level," she said with a chuckle of admiration. "He has to be one of the creations from the she-devil septs from overseas because it's almost like watching an incubus at work, but with an evil twist. You know the uncouth kind that seduces their prey, sucks their life source before ripping them to shreds," she added, and if she could, she would have shrugged, but her limbs would not obey even the slightest gesture. "At least, if my prey aren't turned, there's something left of them for the grieving family to bury."

When the side of Garran's cheek pulsed as if he clenched his teeth, she thought maybe she shouldn't have added the last part.

***********************************************************

Sanya never learns does she? Probably revealing her admiration for the Soul Taker didn't win her points either.  :)
