Excerpt snippet #3 Oct. 5

My senses prickled, the feeling that something was very wrong nagging at me. The strangeness of this place without cars and airplanes, the ninjas speaking an ancient language… I stiffened. Was it possible I’d traveled back in time? No, that was absurd.

Another thought hit me hard. My bandmates and I had recently learned that all five of us had true mates who shared our special gifts associated with our different rune tattoos. Kate, who wore the spirit world Journey rune, had found Kane, a Scottish movie star with faery blood. Cyn, marked with the Wolfsangel rune, had found Lucius, a werewolf, and Jessie, wearer of the Undead rune, had found Merrick, a half-human, half-vampire. Our powers didn’t grow until we met our mates, so either I’d unknowingly tapped into my rune gift for old languages, or my mate was here.

The same male who’d addressed me gave a short nod, and two of the ninjas seized my arms and yanked me forward.

“Hey, what are you doing?” I tried to struggle, but they were too strong.

Damn. If they were LARPing, they took it very seriously and didn’t break from their roles as they dragged me into the woods and out the other side. I gaped at the scene across the stone bridge. A palace and smaller structures built on top of pillars, all made of white stone like they’d been carved there by gods, were nestled beneath the high, rocky, grass-covered cliffs. Sparkling waterfalls flowed down beneath the cliff-side city and emptied into a river. Small trees adorned the landscape and added color to the gleaming white structures. Had I stepped into a fantasy novel?




(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 will probably be dreaming of beautiful palaces for the rest of the day! I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next. This is amazing!

I'm proud of her for her calm reaction. I'd be kind of apprehensive if I suddenly found myself in another time. I like to think I'd be all "I got this" but I don't know!!!
