In the beginning…

Mahala stepped from the entrance of his home as a shadow swept across the land chasing away the last glimpse of the sun. The woman he’d taken for his wife, Anisa, lay resting in the back room with their newborn son nestled snugly in her arms. Looking into the dark ominous sky, a profound sense of impending doom washed over him as the first few drops of rain splattered lightly against his face.

The crisp, floral scent of Heaven touched his nostrils, stirring a deep ache of regret in his chest. As the falling moisture gathered in strength, the low rumble of thunder echoed in the distance—a warning of the wrath to come.

His mind raced, rage and betrayal boiling up inside him. “How could He do this to us?” Mahala snarled, spinning around and storming back into his dwelling. As he entered their bedroom, his exhausted wife woke with a start.

“What are you doing?” Anisa asked, her voice groggy.

He charged forward, and her vibrant green eyes suddenly grew wide with fear. It killed him to do this to her, to their son, but there was no other way. “The boy,” Mahala demanded abruptly, steeling his heart against the grief that threatened to consume him. “Give me the boy!”

“What’s wrong?” Panic filled her voice as Mahala pulled the newborn infant from her arms.

The look of confusion and, God help him, betrayal that flooded his wife’s fear-filled eyes tore his heart out. Each rapid beat crashed against his chest, a stabbing pain that took his breath away. “The end is near,” he managed to rasp past the lump in his throat. Turning away from his beloved and all he held dear in this world, he took their infant and ran out into the cold, drenching downpour.

“Mahala…!” she screamed, her terror cutting through him like a blade. “Mahala! Come back!” Anisa’s broken sobs resonated through the low, growling thunder. It was in that moment Mahala truly died—his flesh would soon follow.

New Release February 28th!

Autumn landscape

Freewill comes at a cost…

Three years after losing the love of her life, Olivia Norton refuses to continue living in the shadows of what will never be. But how can she marry another, when her guardian angel still holds her heart?

Bound by Universal Law, Liam is forced to choose between his honor and his heart. Returning for Olivia once nearly cost him his salvation, but twice may finally prove to be his undoing. Some sacrifices are worth the risk, while others could bring consequences lasting an immortal lifetime.

The game has changed—new players bring new challenges, and the evil that nearly took Olivia’s life three years ago has returned with a vengeance. A legion has been sent to finish what Max failed to do, and the Dark Court will not rest until the last sighted female has been killed.

Evil has a new face, a new name, and will stop at nothing to possess the key Olivia holds, the power Haden needs to unleash his revenge…

If you haven’t indulged in the forbidden love story between Liam and Olivia, there’s still time!

A guardian angel… A forbidden love… Eternal consequences… Olivia Norton was born with a gift—a gift heaven has sworn to protect, and hell is bound to destroy. Her perfect world is turned upside-down when two handsome strangers, Max and Liam, step into her life. Olivia soon discovers that her ‘Mr. Perfect’ is actually a perfect nightmare.

The rules of engagement have changed and Liam, Olivia’s guardian angel, is forced to cross dimensional borders or risk losing the woman he’s sworn to protect. Suddenly, thrust into a world unlike anything he’s ever known, Liam isn’t prepared to come face to face with the young woman whose life he holds in his hands.

But nothing is as it seems, and secrets abound that will ultimately force him to choose between two impossibilities. Max will stop at nothing to finish what he’s started, and Olivia is soon plunged into a battle between good and evil. Her very life hangs in the balance as two forces fight to win her heart.

“So, is it true?” Haden demanded, grabbing Jace’s arm and pulling him into the supply room tucked in the back of  the bar. He kicked the door closed with the heel of his boot and leaned against the frame to prevent any untimely interruptions. Too long he’d been waiting for this moment–too long he’d been searching for the sighted one.

“Did you see her? Does she have it?”

Jace looked over his shoulder as if checking to make sure they were truly alone before answering. Turning back, he nodded, “Yeah, it’s true.”

“You saw it then? You saw the stone?” Could it possibly be true? Immanuel’s Stone was actually here on Earth?

“I saw the stone,” Jace repeated.

“That’s fantastic! Have you told anyone else about it?” Haden stepped closer to his friend, casually sliding his arm around the demon’s heavily tattooed neck.

“No, only you, just like you said. Her warrior nearly killed me, though. I could hardly get close enough to see it. You know, for a minute there, I thought you’d sent me on a suicide mission.”

“I did,” quipped his icy reply. With preternatural speed and strength, Haden grabbed his wrist, trapping the demon in a vice-grip and jerked up. The crunch echoed through the small room as Haden released his old friend, watching his lifeless body sag to the floor. Shadows poured beneath the demon, enveloping him in a thick, black mist.

“Sorry about that,” Haden said, stepping over the crumpled heap, taking care not to let the shadows of Sheol touch him. “But to rise to the top, soldiers must fall…”

A guardian angel… A forbidden love… Eternal consequences…

Olivia Norton was born with a gift—a gift heaven has sworn to protect, and hell is bound to destroy. Her perfect world is turned upside-down when two handsome strangers, Max and Liam, step into her life. Olivia soon discovers that her ‘Mr. Perfect’ is actually a perfect nightmare.

The rules of engagement have changed and Liam, Olivia’s guardian angel, is forced to cross dimensional borders or risk losing the woman he’s sworn to protect. Suddenly, thrust into a world unlike anything he’s ever known, Liam isn’t prepared to come face to face with the young woman whose life he holds in his hands.

But nothing is as it seems, and secrets abound that will ultimately force him to choose between two impossibilities. Max will stop at nothing to finish what he’s started, and Olivia is soon plunged into a battle between good and evil. Her very life hangs in the balance as two forces fight to win her heart.

Until Darkness Comes Excerpt:

Max folded his arms across his chest and cocked his brow. “You’re kinda jumpy, Liv. Something happen today you want to tell me about?”

“No, nothing’s wrong,” she denied. “But we’d better get downstairs, they’re waiting.” Max stood between her and freedom. Olivia walked toward the door, praying he would let her pass. With lightning speed, his hand shot out and caught her wrist before she could dodge his grasp. He pulled her back several steps, looking down at her, he leaned in and inhaled deeply.

“Who were you with today?”

His low, menacing growl sent goose bumps prickling up her arms. His grip on her wrist tightened, and she bit her bottom lip to keep from crying out. “Just a friend,” she replied, hoping he wouldn’t see through the lie.

“A friend, huh?” Arching a brow, he echoed her answer skeptically.

Olivia tried to force a smile. “Yeah, just a friend. So, what did you do today?”

“I waited for you,” Max growled, jerking Olivia’s arm toward him. She stumbled against his rock-hard chest, and before she could register what was happening, his lips came crashing down on hers. Max’s kiss was nothing like Liam’s. It was angry and controlling—suffocating. He tasted stale and smoky as his tongue pressed past her lips and brushed against hers, sending a jolt of panic rushing through her.

She let out a startled yelp when Max suddenly broke their kiss and shoved her away. She stumbled back a few steps and his hand shot out again, grabbing her tender wrist, jerking her back to him like a yo-yo.

“You lying, cheating, little whore!” he growled. “You’ve been kissing him! Don’t even bother trying to deny it. I can taste that son of a bitch!”

Olivia stared at Max, momentarily speechless, her heart slamming inside her chest. “Max,” she said, trying to sound more braver than she felt. “I’m not denying anything, and I think it would be best if you left. I have no interest in continuing this relationship. We’re done.”

“The hell we are!” Max hissed, jerking his hand back.

Preparing for Max to strike, Olivia squeezed her eyes shut, bracing herself for the blow that didn’t come. Suddenly, Max’s hold on her wrist was ripped away and her eyes flew open in time to see Liam’s elbow smash into the side of Max’s jaw.

A loud crack filled the room. Max’s head snapped back, recoiling from the blow and when he looked back at Liam, his feral grin made her blood run cold. His lower lip was split open and bleeding. Slowly, Max’s tongue snaked out to taste the dark blood oozing down the corner of his mouth and gave Liam a sardonic “it’s on” smile.  Bursting forward, he wrapped his hands around Liam’s neck for leverage, and drove his knee into his stomach.

Max moved so fast, she only saw a swift blur before a thud filled the room. Liam brought his hands up hard and fast, breaking Max’s hold around his neck. As Max stumbled back, Liam sent a side-kick into his chest, propelling him across the bedroom. He landed against her bed. The impact sent it sliding across the floor, and crashing into the wall.

Liam jumped on top of Max before her eyes could track his movement. When she blinked again, Max was back up, his fist connecting with Liam’s cheek, splitting it open..

A ferocious snarl tore from Liam’s lips as he slammed his shoulder into Max’s chest, driving him back. They flew across the bedroom and crashed through the open window.

“Liam!” Olivia screamed, running to the window. Panic squeezed her throat, choking her as she imagined what she’d find on the grass below. She stuck her head through the opening and gasped—they were gone! Something was terribly wrong here. Normal people didn’t fight like this—normal people couldn’t move this fast, and normal people didn’t fall from two-story windows and disappear!

There are few things more romantic than a first kiss…

Hi, everyone, welcome to Romancing the Hop. At this stop, I’m giving away a $25 Amazon gift card. The winner will be announced Sept. 4th. Enter to win by reading this romantic excerpt from my paranormal romance, Until Darkness Comes, and following the steps below.

A guardian angel… A forbidden love… Eternal consequences…

Olivia Norton was born with a gift—a gift heaven has sworn to protect, and hell is bound to destroy. Her perfect world is turned upside-down when two handsome strangers, Max and Liam, step into her life. Olivia soon discovers that her ‘Mr. Perfect’ is actually a perfect nightmare.

The rules of engagement have changed and Liam, Olivia’s guardian angel, is forced to cross dimensional borders or risk losing the woman he’s sworn to protect. Suddenly, thrust into a world unlike anything he’s ever known, Liam isn’t prepared to come face to face with the young woman whose life he holds in his hands.

But nothing is as it seems, and secrets abound that will ultimately force him to choose between two impossibilities. Max will stop at nothing to finish what he’s started, and Olivia is soon plunged into a battle between good and evil. Her very life hangs in the balance as two forces fight to win her heart.

Until Darkness Comes Excerpt ~ First kiss…

Olivia took a brave step closer to Liam and cupped the side of his cheek, forcing him to look at her. “Then who are you? Surely you can tell me that. And don’t you dare lie to me, because I know you’re not normal. I’ve never met anyone like you before. Normal guys don’t act like you. Normal guys don’t look like you, and if they do, they’re usually more like…”

“More like what?” His eyebrow arched curiously.

“More like Max, I guess.”

“Well, I can promise you that I am nothing like Max. More like the exact opposite, to tell you the truth.”

“Why do you hate him so much? At first, I thought it was because he was my boyfriend, and that you were just jealous or something. But it’s more than that, isn’t it?”

“There’s a darkness in him, Olivia. Can’t you feel it?”

“I’m not sure how I feel when I’m with Max anymore. I used to feel…carefree—wild and reckless, you know? But lately, I’m starting to just feel…afraid. Like I’m walking on a tightrope and I’m about ready to fall.”

“I’ll catch you,” he whispered, slowly trailing his fingers down the side of her neck.

Her pulse beat erratically beneath his touch; she opened her mouth to say something, but stopped. Instead, she moistened her bottom lip with the tip of her tongue. His heated gaze fell to her lips and she felt Liam’s resolve snap. A wave of desire blasted into her and a soft groan of defeat rumbled in his chest as he lowered his head, capturing her lips in a tender embrace. His kiss tore through her like fire. What started out as tentative and sweet, quickly escalated to urgent and demanding as a rush of adrenaline flooded her veins. She melted into his arms, her lips fitting perfectly against his, like she was made just for him.

He tasted exactly like he smelled—faintly of cloves, delicious. She parted her lips, aching for more and instinctively he responded to her request as if she’d spoken it. Drawing the kiss deeper, his tongue brushed against hers. The more he kissed her, the hungrier she became, fueling an insatiable fire deep in her core.

Olivia wound her arms around his neck and pulled him closer. She’d never felt more starved and yet completely satisfied as she did at that very moment. He tightened his arms around her waist and pulled her against him, as if he couldn’t get close enough. Her feet left the ground as he molded her to his lean, powerful body.

Time momentarily ceased. She had no idea how long they stood there in each other’s arms as the floor of the boat rocked beneath his feet. The captain’s voice crackled over the speaker, announcing the end of their tour. A reluctant groan escaped Liam’s lips as he broke their kiss and  slowly released her. Olivia stumbled when her feet touched ground and his hand shot out to steady her…
