Teaser Tuesday: Cross My Heart

Every Tuesday I will share a teaser from Work in Progress' only.
So it will be teasers from all unpublished manuscripts. Nothing from already published books.

This weeks teaser follows on from last weeks, which you can read here. Both are taken from the next book in my Blood Series, Cross My Heart, Book 1.5

Then again my captors had drilled this life changing fact into me repeatedly since the moment I had first woke up and had refused to believe; refused to drink, which they had loved. Tormenting was apparently no fun if your victim was accepting of their situation. It had been somewhat hard, not to mention physically painful, to digest, especially since I couldn’t recall a flash of fangs or being filled with terror as one of the undead pounced on and fed from me; nor could I remember being fed blood or the agony of death or waking up reborn; all of which was suppose to take place according to Elle.
“So maybe I lied. Maybe I was wrong.”
My focus stayed fixed on that corner of the room; to her form which became more solid with each second. You would never admit you were wrong.
“Maybe not when we were kids, but maybe now I would admit such a thing; especially since a Vampire didn’t feed off you and baptize you with its blood. That certainly didn’t happen to you, did it?”
No, all I could remember was rain.... a dark street; Freddie singing the Spice Girls, ‘If you wanna be my lover’ severely off key beside me as we stumbled back to the hostel in London. Being knocked to the ground; blood trickling into my eyes... Freddie on the floor next to me, someone in black pining him down. Darkness, followed by flashes of light and faces; being naked and so freaking cold. The glint of needle tips and ... fuck... the pain; slices into my ball sack, and then my heart; hammering so quickly and so damn hard, as if it were about to explode out of my chest or just give up on me all together... and then a whole lot of nothing before I woke up in this dark, dank room.
The Hollywood take on being turned into a creature of the night hadn’t happened, and sure, I had always though Elle had been crazy, obsessed with Vampires, but in a cute, supernatural fanatic, kind of way since she went into fascinating details which were so elaborate it was always like being told a scary story. I had always believed her over-active imagination to be just that; while we played in the fields and forests near our home town she wished we were roaming through a more dangerous and thrilling world. A world she had been invested in since we were eight; a world I humoured her with because she was my best friend and had enough crazy stuff going on at home but....
 “Vampires exist, Than. It doesn’t matter if you don’t believe in them. Lack of belief doesn’t make them any less real.” She snorted. “I’ve told you this a million times.”
Vampires existed. I had seen far too many fangs, too much blood, and a bunch of other freaky shite over my stay to not believe that this particular brand of fiction was actually cold, hard, un-bleedin’-believable fact, but I was one. Evident by the pinch in my gums or the stab of my canines against my tongue every time I smelled blood; evident by the fact that I no longer had a beating heart; no urge to breathe or eat, or even to go to the toilet. And as sexy as Hollywood made Vampires out to be.... the reality was a total turn-off.

Monday Madness

Q&A Opportunity: Ask me anything.

Yes, I mean it. You can ask me anything to do with... published books, WIP, writing in general, or personal questions. In saying that though I will draw the line if a) I feel that an answer will spoil upcoming books, or b) if you ask me something too personal.

RBTL Tours: Kei: Family Matters by Isaiyan Morrison

For decades, I singularly helped strengthen the Deamhan in Minneapolis, and made sure that all the vampires feared us. Ramanga, Lamia, Metusba, and Lugat - I looked out for everyone. No one before me had the guts to stand up to the humans and vampires like I did. If it weren't for me, Deamhan would've left that city in fear a long time ago.
Everything was fine until my sibling, Selene, arrived. She released my sire, Lucius, from Limbo, and all hell broke loose. They massacred my supporters and dethroned me. Now, with his minions rallying behind Lucius like he's their messiah, Selene and he chase me to the ends of the earth. They erroneously believe that by capturing me, they will exact justice from me for my crimes.
Little do they know that nothing can keep me away from Minneapolis, the city I built from the ground up. I'm going nowhere. The city belongs to me, Kei; and only I can redeem it.

Excerpt: PG13

I couldn't think of any human who'd turn away a chance at immortality. It's all the rage these days.
Teenage girls just scream over cute, young-looking, pale men with sharp fangs, and dream about these “vampires” entering their homes during the night, seducing them, and falling in love with them. Thinking about those estrogen-filled desires made me chuckle. Who'd want to be a vampire when you could be a Deamhan! It's like choosing to be the prey instead of the beast.
Moving at breakneck speed, I grabbed the knife and phone from her grasp and threw them both to the ground. I did all of it before she had the chance to blink. Her mouth widened enough to catch flies, showing some of the human fear that I loved seeing.
“See what I did there Bobbi?”
She screamed and lashed out at me. Driving her fingernails into my skin, she scored long, deep scratches that healed immediately. Angered, I grabbed her by her arm and easily tossed her across the kitchen. Her back smacked against the fridge and she fell to the floor.
“I can make you immortal. It's easy really.” I scanned her. “You look suitable, I guess. So, you want me to?”
“What?” She spoke in a high, squealy voice.
“I guess I can't make you.” I walked over to her and slipped my hand underneath her chin to raise her head. I've sired plenty of humans in my time and not once did I regret doing so. Each human served me in different ways. Bobbi would be my… well, maybe she could be an extra pair of eyes while I remained in town, if she awoke from her transformation in time. I waited for her to throw herself at the offer, but instead, she opened her mouth and screamed again.
And again. And again.
Tears poured down her face. “Please, don't hurt me.” She tried to run past me, but I blocked her way. She moved to the left and I followed her. “I have money. It's in my room. Just please don't kill me.”
“I don't want your money.” This was turning into a cat and mouse chase, and frankly, I was bored from repeating myself. I reached out, grabbed her by her scraggly hair, and pulled back, yanking with such force that I heard her neck snap. I let go and her body fell to the floor like a limp noodle.
Standing over her, I took the time to admire my handiwork until I realized that I’d just killed a potential meal.
“Damn it, Bobbi,” I snarled as I kicked her corpse. “Now look what you made me do.”

“Don’t say I didn’t give you a chance.” #SexySnippets from Truth or Dare?

It's Sunday so it's time for a Sexy Snippet. Today's 7 sentences are taken from my upcoming release, Truth or Dare? It's a little over 7 sentences so I do apologize.

We're following on from where we left off last week where Cameron had suggested an alternative way to spend the night....

~ * ~

I clenched my thighs together at the feel of moisture flooding my panties. My eyelids fluttered shut. “I say the day I agree to such activities with you will be the day hell freezes over.”
He laughed, low and rough. “You want to play the hard way, I’m game.”
My eyelids snapped open at the sound of glass hitting wood. Glancing down I saw four tumblers in his grasp on the counter beside me. “But who knows what I might ask you.”
“Ask whatever you want.” Lowering my arm, I glanced over my shoulder. “You don’t scare me.”
His lips twisted. “Don’t say I didn’t give you a chance.”

Do you dare tell the truth?

A tequila fuelled game of Truth or Dare is not Dani’s idea of fun, but when Cameron, the jerk who rejected her a year ago is the one provoking her into playing, how can she say no? Not that he’s giving her the option in the first place.

Bravado compels her forward, but when the dares get physical and their friends leave them alone, Cameron’s questions turn to her feelings for him, and unfortunately, lying is not part of the game.

Will a dare give Dani the courage she needs to tell Cameron the truth?

Note: Truth or Dare? is a re-release; the story is the same only the cover and the sale price has changed.
