Excerpt snippet #2 Sept 28

My senses prickled. It was that feeling of being watched, yet I saw nothing. Then, the trees shimmered, and five figures stepped silently from the woodlands like ghosts. Armed with bows and bronze swords, they were clothed in leather of woodland hues that helped them blend into the forest, only their eyes visible, their faces and heads covered in hoods and scarves like ninjas.

I gaped at them. Had I stepped into a LARP gathering?

Surrounding me, the ninjas pointed their weapons at me. Fierce blue eyes met my wide-eyed gaze. Uh-oh. I don’t think I’m in Kansas anymore. I didn’t move, my shoulders stiff as fear seized me. Something wasn’t right.

“How did you get in here?” one asked, the voice low and guttural. He was speaking some strange language, but my Gateway rune tingled and helped me understand his words.

I answered him truthfully in the same tongue. “I don’t know. Where is here?”

He grunted and scowled at me.




(This is a standalone story in the Shadow-walkers series.)

*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.

I think I'm glad I'm not in her shoes! :-)

I think I agree: she'd not in Kansas anymore. I wouldn't want to be in her shoes at this point! Happy Medieval Monday!

A very cool scene, Kelley!

Nope, not Kansas. I suspect we're in for some great magic! Well done.
