Snippet Sunday: Staked and Still Standing… Soul Taker @KMNbooks @RebeccaJVickery #8sunday #snippetsunday #SPeekSunday

Audio_Soul TakerWelcome to Snippet Sunday. This is a snippet from Soul Taker.

If you missed the last weeks snippet, here's the link. :): Chapter 1 #5

Set up:
Garran MacLaurin has returned to Boston to govern the territory of Otherworldy beings and he expects his rules to be obeyed. He's cornered Sanya who has been breaking rules set for Otherworldly beings. He's staked her through the heart, but the unexpected happens...

This snippet takes place a few paragraphs later from last week's snippet. This snippet has been slightly modified.

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

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

She had heard rumors he would seduce his victims, not unlike what she would do to a human, but she wasn't human and hadn't been one since the Spanish Inquisition had its first auto-da-fé held in Seville in 1481. Sanya was older than Garran and should be able to take him, but his determination to follow his creed of right and wrong proved stronger.She could withstand most attacks and heal. Vampires from every sept were virtually immortal unless beheaded or stabbed through the heart. Garran's hands bit into her arms, pinning them to the side. She waited, expecting to explode into dust as legend claimed. "What's happening?" she stammered, fear gripping her insides.

MacLaurin brushed aside a strand of hair from her face and said, "Ye didn't believe a stake would actually kill ye, did ye?"

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

Sanya is staked, but not dead. Is Garran just making a point, be good or else?

Stop by next week for snippet #7 from my Urban Fantasy tale, SOUL TAKER.

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.

I Hear Voices…Soul Taker @KMNbooks @guyveryzer @NewOnAudible

Audio_Soul TakerSoul Taker is available at Audible! So thrilled to share the good news with everyone!

Having Soul Taker created for an audible version for readers to download and enjoy was so much fun, but lots of hard work, too.

The narrator has to be a convincing actor to play all the characters' parts. It’s like going to a the theater where the characters from the script come alive the moment the actors step upon the stage.

Guy Veryzer did an excellent job narrating Soul Taker! He truly captured the essence of the story and gave my characters their voices for all to hear.

If you're interested, here's the link and your chance to listen to a sample before you download your copy!! Audible

Enjoy and Happy listening!

First Kiss: Kisses and an offer for coffee… In Debra St. John’s, This Feels Like Home @KMNbooks @WildRosePress

Did you miss Debra's First Kiss Event on Facebook? Here's a recap:

He leaned toward her, his gaze on her lips. Her heart thudded against her ribs as she read his intent. His mouth brushed hers. Once. Twice. Then again and again. He stroked with a teasing touch until on instinct, her lips parted, and the kiss became serious.When was the last time she’d been kissed like this? Had she ever been kissed like this? Her heart pounded. Her pulse raced. Thick, molten heat made her limbs weak. Her hands found his shoulders and wound around his neck.

He took a step closer and slid his arm around her back beneath the blazer to ease her against him as he slanted his mouth across hers. His lips were warm. Firm. A feast for her senses like Zach’s meal had been for her taste buds. The men at the Corral certainly were talented.

A petal of desire unfurled in the pit of her stomach. Less than a week ago she’d sworn to Gail she’d never had a fantasy about a cowboy. Now, in the space of several racing heartbeats, several dozen popped into her mind. All of them featuring Jake. All of them carnal. All of them begging to be fulfilled. She broke the kiss on a gasp, unnerved by the depth of her response. Had need ever flared this strong, this intense, this quickly?

His breath hitched in an uneven rhythm, but he smiled as he tucked a strand of hair behind her ear. She shivered.

“I don’t suppose I can talk you into coming to my place for a cup of coffee?” The words, uttered in his husky drawl, whispered over her. Through her. Touching places deep and secret. Igniting more hidden desires. Desires she’d never had until now.

 About the Book:

Can a danger-addicted cowboy and a safety-conscious urbanite ever see eye-to-eye?

When Chicago native Amber Winfield visits her aunt in Texas, she's happy to absorb some local color - but dating a bull rider? That's more cowboy than she's prepared to go. As an accessibility consultant, she knows too well the hazards of extreme sports. Just one night with Jake Hawkins, though, and she's captivated by the caring man underneath the cowboy swagger. But she could never fall for a man so intent on chasing danger...could she?

Jake's one goal - earn enough points to ride on the pro circuit - and he won't let anyone stand in his way. Especially not a sophisticated city lady who thinks bull riding is crazy. Women like Amber are the reason he's perfected the art of loving and leaving. So why can't he get her off of his mind...or out of his heart?
