Excerpt snippet #1 Sept 21

I landed on a hard ground of rock and grass. The air knocked from me, I gasped for breath. For long moments, I couldn’t move, and I fought the urge to vomit, my stomach roiling. I slowly sat up. The bench, Selena, and the cemetery were nowhere in sight.

For as far as I could see, rows of trees filled the view, not the trees I was used to seeing in Los Angeles. The pines and oaks here differed from the ones I remembered from Big Bear, the forest…primordial, the moss-covered trees so thick and tall they hid the sunlight.

Where was I?

Fragrant pine and earthy scents permeated the grove, and I stilled. Odd. There were no car engines or airplane noises, just singing birds. It was both serene and eerie.

I pulled my cell phone out of my pants pocket. No signal.

Mierda,” I muttered, turned it off, and put it back in my pocket.

*Erotic paranormal romance*

Time can’t separate them, but fate can.

Do you like time travel stories with a hot elven king and lots of twists? The women are the rock stars here, and they command the supernatural alpha males in their lives. Grab a copy now and enter the sexy, scary, and thrilling world of Shadow-walkers. This compelling romance will capture your soul.

She’s the most powerful Shadow-walker…and the most vulnerable.

Dina, the wild, strong-willed drummer for Hecate’s Fury and wearer of the Gateway rune, is thrust back in time where she meets a tall, handsome faery king. Beneath all the beauty of the aes sidhe city lurks a dark, menacing danger, and nothing is as it seems. She may be the only one to help them, but the cost to her is high.

Beware a kiss in moonlight.

Roan may be the only male to tame Dina’s restless spirit, the king’s cold nature both enticing and challenging. However, another covets her Shadow-walker and bruja powers. The rival’s obsession is relentless, his magic difficult to resist, even for a Shadow-walker.

Past and present collide as both males vie for her. Only the power of love and sacrifice can unite her with her true mate.
