Must Read PNR Series

I haven’t been writing much of late, but I have been reading. My Kindle has been seeing lots of action!! I’m hooked on Nina Croft’s TBittersweet_Bloodhe Order Series. If you haven’t read any of the three books in this series, you must!

Let me introduce you to them. I’ve read the first two and have just started the third. I confess, I’m going to be sad when it’s over. I wish there were more in the series. The characters are great as is the plot. The author doesn’t overdo things–she includes vampires, fae, and werewolves. Well, and humans, too.

The first book is Bittersweet Blood. This is Tara and Christian Roth’s story. Let me tell you, ladies, Christian is hot and oh so very yummy.

Here’s the description:

Tara Collins just wants to be normal. Everyone else wants her dead.

Tara’s eccentric aunt raised her to be fearful of the world and follow the rules. But after her aunt’s death, Tara is ready to take control and experience life for the first time. But she quickly discovers that everything she’s been told is a web of lies. Determined to solve the mystery of who she is truly, she hires private investigator to help her uncover the truth.

Christian Roth is more than your average PI. A vampire and ex-demon hunter, Christian lives among the humans, trying to be “normal.” But recently, things seem to be falling apart. There’s a crazed demon hell-bent on revenge hunting him down, and a fae assassin on the loose with an unknown target. And the Order he abandoned desperately needs his help.

As the secrets of Tara’s past collide with the problems in Christian’s present, she finds herself fighting her attraction to the dark and mysterious investigator. Falling in love does not fit into her plans at all, but Tara soon learns that some rules are meant to be broken. Continue reading “Must Read PNR Series”

Synopsis: Saving Caeorleia Book Two

Dade, human-Caeorleian hybrid and ex-military grunt, doesn’t fit in—not with humans, not with aliens, not anywhere. He’s always on the outskirts, angry, and people aren’t sure they can trust him. When he encounters a compatible tziu named Yaseke, secrets, misunderstandings, and attacks nearly prevent the two from making a connection Dade sorely needs. Even after they unite, Dade and Yaseke face challenges that two newly joined males should never have to endure.

From traitorous council members, to sadistic aliens who plan to sell them as slaves, to meeting a mysterious race of revered aliens called Collectors, Dade and Yaseke manage to stay together—and even rescue two youths related to Yaseke, who’ve lost their parents to the same betrayer.

Someone from Dade’s past is at the root of everything he’s suffered. No way can he let them get away with what they’re planning, but Dade isn’t sure he can stop them on his own. If he doesn’t let go of his isolation and risk the pain letting others in will bring, he’ll never save Caeorleia in time.

Excerpt: Chapter One

Sunlight glared off the silver surface of the lake, blinding me where I crouched away from everyone. The guard currently assigned to me stood at my back, making my skin crawl. I shivered, even though it was hot enough I was sweating. I never knew when one of them might try to touch me. Continue reading “Release Day: Adverse Effects”

Wednesday Briefs: Mission Paused

I’m continuing with another glimpse into Sid and Gareth’s life in the Meridian Galaxy. This one follows the last story, where they’re trying to make a getaway after getting busted trying to steal some tech.

Remember the Wednesday stories have to be 500-1000 words and include a prompt. Be sure to visit the other briefers listed at the end of the post.

This week’s prompt is a quote, “What is it about him that makes me…” Of course in my story, Sid speaks this about Gareth, the lunk *wink*

Here we go with…

Mission Paused

by

Avery Dawes

Sid released his white-knuckled grip on the armrests and breathed a sigh of relief. Despite losing the main engine, they’d landed safely on Denza. However, Gareth’s spaceship would never be the same, and Sid felt like it was all his fault. Damn biometric reader that had started a chain of horrible events.

“You alive back there?” Gareth called, taxiing the craft into the shiny metallic hanger.

He paused before answering, not wanting his voice to betray his unease. “Of course, ya lunk. I had no doubt whatsoever of your piloting abilities.”

Nuzzie interrupted, clarifying, “Um, yeah, you did, Sid. I detect the slightest tremor in your voice. Besides, I’m the one who got us on the ground in one piece.”

Once the craft came to a stop, Sid unlatched his harness, stood, and stretched. “Either way, a job well done to all.” He gave Gareth a pointed look. “I sure could use a drink. How long until we fly again?”

Gareth frowned. “I’m not sure. I’d say the repairs will take several hours at least if not the entire night.” Continue reading “Wednesday Briefs: Mission Paused”

Crossroads

Today I welcome Julie Lynn Hayes to the blog to share her latest release, Crossroads.

Blurb

crossroads72Crossroads: a point at which a crucial decision must be made that will have far-reaching consequences

Clete Deveraux is a little old Southern boy a long way from home, drifting the highways with his abusive boyfriend, Vern. Tal Clark is newly graduated from the University of Missouri in Columbia, but his plans for a carefree summer have just been derailed and he’s not sure what he’s going to do.

Things happen for a reason…

Clete and Tal’s lives intersect at a rest stop in central Missouri, but sometimes first impressions aren’t the best. And finding the right path isn’t always easy.

Clete and Tal have reached a crossroads… and now they have to decide which way they want to go. And who they want to go with.

Excerpt

As he rounded the corner, he stopped dead in his tracks, his thought not only unfinished, but completely slammed from his head by the sight before him. A figure stood in front of one of the vending machines, slender legs encased in tight blue jeans that led to the most gorgeous ass Tal thought he’d ever seen in his life, a notion that was seconded by his dick, which twitched its agreement.

Genie who?

The girl had fine blonde hair, so pale it seemed almost white, but maybe that was just due to the harshness of the lights. Tal’s heart was beating a staccato tattoo inside his chest at the way she shifted her weight from one leg to the next. His imagination began to run rampant, as he pictured himself placing his hands on those dainty hips, drawing her to him as he nibbled on her neck. He couldn’t remember the last time he’d been this turned on. A little voice inside his head rejoiced. Genie was wrong—he wasn’t what she’d said he was, and this was proof positive of that. It was all her fault if he found more pleasure in a book than in her bed. See? The proof of his sexuality was here, staring him in the face. Well, her ass, his face. Continue reading “Crossroads”
