EXCERPT

She nervously licks her lips, wincing when her tongue brushes the cut that now resides there. “Why am I here?” Quincey questions. “What do you want from me? Money?” She shakes her head. “I don’t have anything to give you.”

I bark out a cold laugh. “I’m well aware of your financial situation.” 

She’s already cost me a pretty penny. 

Quincey presses against the headboard even harder, as if that extra inch of space between us will do her any good. The poor girl has no idea who she’s trapped in a room with. “Then you know I have nothing to offer you.” She pushes her hair out of her face. “I have nothing.” 

The way her eyes dart between the door and me doesn’t go unnoticed. She’s not as sly as she thinks she’s being, I know what she’s planning. It’s foolish, but once again, her bravery knows no bounds. 

“That is where you’re wrong, Quincey Page.” I come to a stop at the foot of her bed. Cocking my head, I eye her with a bland stare. “You have something I need.” 

Her body goes rigid, the muscles of her throat shifting as she swallows hard. In a move that is shockingly fast and agile for a human, she springs from the bed. Even with a wounded ankle, she’s quick as she flies across the room. The white T-shirt the doctor changed her into rides up her legs as she sprints toward the door. 

With an exasperated sigh, I look to the ceiling and count to five to calm myself. I stay put even when I hear the turning of the door handle and her bare feet pound down the hallway. She can run as much as she’d like, but unfortunately for her, she’s not getting very far. It doesn’t matter how much of a head start I give her, she’ll never outrun me. 

Ten seconds, that’s how long I let her have before I fly after her. I’m behind her in less than a second. The scream she lets out as my arms wrap around her middle is loud enough to wake the dead. My sensitive ears ring from the high-pitched noise. 

“Stop screaming,” I order. “It’s such an unpleasant noise.” The cries are cut off when I abruptly lift her over my shoulder. Her legs kick and thrash, her hands beat on my lower back. “That’s enough of that,” I grumble, clamping my arm around her thighs, locking her in place. 

“How did you move so fast? Put me down!” Quincey growls, her hands never letting up from their assault on my back. “What the fuck is wrong with you?”

“More than you’ll ever be able to understand.”  

I march back into the room I intend to be hers for the foreseeable future. Unceremoniously, I toss her back onto the king-size bed. I bite back a smirk as she lands in an ungraceful heap. 

Like an angered kitten, she turns on me, teeth bared. “I don’t know who you think you are or who gave you the right, but you can’t just kidnap me and then manhandle me!” 

In a flash, I’m towering over her, my arms caging her in on the bed. Her chest heaves just barely an inch away from mine. “You’re wrong again, Miss Page. I have every fucking right. You see, five hours ago I forfeited a large sum of money to obtain such rights. It is now my right to hold you here as long as I see fit. It is now my right to manhandle you however I desire. It is now my right to do whatever the fuck I want with you because that little debt of yours? It’s been paid.” I lean in close, so close the vanilla scent that clings to her suffocates me. “You no longer owe Barrett Gallo.” My voice is just a whisper. “You owe me.” 

Her heart pounds against her chest, the erratic beat filling my ears. “Why the hell would you pay my debt?”

“Isn’t it obvious?” I question. “I want you indebted to me.”

AUTHOR BIO

Kayleigh lives in Denver Colorado, just two hours away from some of the best skiing in the world. A luxury completely lost on her considering she avoids snow at all costs. Well, she avoids outside at all costs—she’s what you’d call an ‘indoor cat’. She much prefers to sit inside on her computer all day drinking massive amounts of caffeine. She’d have an IV drip of the stuff connected to her if she could. 

When she’s not writing, you can find her binge-watching Netflix like it’s her job. Or at the local Mexican restaurant, because the girl loves tacos and margaritas.

{Release Blitz} Blood and Wine

Title: Blood and Wine 
Author: Margot Scott
Genre: Dark Vampire Romance
Release Date: October 29, 2020

BLURB 

A slow-burning descent into darkness and desire…


Betrayed. Imprisoned. Alone.

For decades I have suffered as a reluctant blood donor. Caged like an animal and drained of my strength to enrich the Radcliffs and their winery. I’d forsaken all hope of escape—until the winemaker’s daughter returns to the family’s estate.

A drop of my immortal blood is all it takes to activate her psychic talents. Now we’re connected, and all that remains is convincing her to seek me in the darkness.

Bribe. Seduce. Deceive.

To claim she’s too young is an understatement. But a starving man doesn’t have the luxury of waiting for fruit to ripen. I’ve awakened her gifts, and now it’s her turn to replenish me.

I will have my fill of the winemaker’s daughter. Then I will take revenge on her family.

Author’s note: Please be aware that this book contains scenes of violence, gore, and rough sexual contact, as well as an age-gap pairing spanning literal centuries. If you find drastically inappropriate older man/younger woman romance quickie, do yourself a favor and skip this book.

EXCERPT

I inhale the perfume of lilacs, and watch the horses grazing among the vines. Then I remind myself that it’s October, and there aren’t any horses on the grounds anymore.

That’s how I know I’m still dreaming.

I’ve been a lucid dreamer since I was little, capable of controlling my consciousness at whim while asleep. It’s the one Greyson-like talent I’ve been blessed with, and it’s not even that interesting.

A burst of laughter calls my attention to a couple drinking champagne on the patio. I approach them. They ask if I’m wearing that to the party, and it’s not until I notice how they’re dressed—her in a silk blue wrap dress with ruffles, and him in a fedora and striped jacket—and the way their silhouettes dissolve slightly into the air around them, that I realize they aren’t just stand-ins manufactured by my dream engine.

They’re ghosts. My mom tried describing them to me, but it’s one thing to hear about something and another to actually see it with your own eyes.

Ghosts don’t look the way you might expect, all white-sheeted and billowy. Neither do they resemble rotting corpses. They look like shimmery versions of regular people. A little fuzzy around the edges, maybe, but otherwise normal.

The clamor of horn-heavy music playing elsewhere on the estate coaxes me to step barefooted into the grass. I make my way toward the sound. Sure enough, there’s a party in full swing in the grand foyer. I peek through the windows at the crowd of ghosts having a grand old time, drinking, laughing, and dancing.

I stay and watch for a while and listen to the band play, until a man in a waistcoat comes up behind me and asks if I have an invitation. I run into the field, glancing over my shoulder to make sure I’m not being chased.

A woman in a white dress watches me from a second-story window. I’m not a hundred percent certain, but I’m pretty sure she’s watching me from the room I’m staying in. She’s too far away to note the details of her face, but her hair is long, dark, and straight, like mine. I blink and she’s gone, and her absence unsettles me and sends me galloping further into the grapevines.

The sky hasn’t changed since I awoke into the dreamscape, giving the vineyard a sense of timelessness. Now that I’m away from the house, I make my way down the rows of vines slowly, skimming my fingers over the leaves.

This place isn’t so bad without Edward and his awful relatives making me feel unwelcome. It would’ve been even nicer to have come here with my mother; I could’ve listened to her tell her own stories.

A crow soars overhead and then drops into a cluster of trees. That’s when I spot the man standing with his back to me among the vines.

“Hello,” I call out, moving a little closer. He turns his blond head slowly, like he’s not sure if he heard me. I call out again, “Hello, sir?”

When our gazes meet, I stop advancing. His eyes are so blue they’re almost turquoise. I’m already lost in them, and I just got here. He studies me curiously, like he’s never seen a girl in a Blind Melon tee shirt before.

“Did you say something to me?” he asks.

“I said hello.”

The man looks around, like he’s making sure I’m not actually talking to someone behind him. He’s a pretty big guy, fit and brawny. Maybe he’s the ghost of a laborer, I think, though his clean shirt and fair skin would suggest he’s not one for toiling in the sun. I’d guess him to be somewhere in his mid-thirties. I wonder how long it’s been since he passed on, then remind myself he isn’t real. This place looks like the vineyard, but it’s not the vineyard. There’s no reason my mind couldn’t dream up ghosts just as easily as it cooks up impatient servers.

“How long have you lived here?” I ask. Mom also told me that ghosts sometimes forget they’re dead, and when they do, it’s best not to remind them. Nine times out of ten, whenever there’s an aggressive haunting, it’s because a ghost is confused, or hasn’t yet come to terms with their situation. This man appears lucid enough, and his silhouette is surprisingly crisp, but I figure it’s better to play it safe.

His lip curls slightly. “I’ve been here much longer than I’d like to be.”

“Oh. That sucks.” I’m not sure how else to respond.

Two rows of vines separate us, but even that distance and a coating of golden scruff aren’t enough to mask the fact that he’s handsome. His face is angular without being pointed, his lips full, yet defined. The longer I look at him, the faster my pulse starts to race. Heat floods my face as I force myself to stop gawking at him like some wannabe groupie.

“I’m just visiting my dad,” I say, hoping he won’t notice the tremor in my voice. The man says nothing. When I allow myself to glance his way again, he’s no longer standing in the same spot.

He’s right beside me.

I stagger back a few steps.

“How did you do that?” A dumb question, considering ghosts don’t have to follow the laws of physics in the real world, let alone the nonexistent rules in my dreams.

I hold my breath as the man reaches out to touch my cheek. Somehow his eyes are even bluer this close up.

“How is this possible?” He strokes the sides of my face.

“Anything’s possible in a dream,” I say. He shakes his head in disbelief, like I’m the ghost in his dreams.

“This is why he wants you,” he says, and I have no idea what that means.

“Who wants me?”

His gaze lifts over my shoulder, in the direction of the house.

“It’s time to wake up, Mariah.”

“Why?” And how does he know my name?

“You have a visitor.” He grasps my shoulders firmly enough to pinch and shakes me.

I’m jolted awake, for real this time.

It takes me a second to recall where I am—in bed, in the guestroom, at Red Cliff—and half a second more to realize that I’m not alone.

Review

I’m a little at odds with this story. Was it enjoyable? Yes but it wasn’t anything memorable thou. I felt like the story was finishing up; and it could have and then the author decides it add a two weeks later section. Nothing wrong with that, but when reading it just felt like an add on not a continuation of the story.

The little mystery in the story is what keep me reading til the end, but overall I’m left wanting more.

{Review} Marked In Flesh (The Others #4)

5 stars

Synopsis

For centuries, the Others and humans have lived side by side in uneasy peace. But when humankind oversteps its bounds, the Others will have to decide how much humanity they’re willing to tolerate—both within themselves and within their community…

Since the Others allied themselves with the cassandra sangue, the fragile yet powerful human blood prophets who were being exploited by their own kind, the delicate dynamic between humans and Others changed. Some, like Simon Wolfgard, wolf shifter and leader of the Lakeside Courtyard, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn, see the new, closer companionship as beneficial—both personally and practically.

But not everyone is convinced. A group of radical humans is seeking to usurp land through a series of violent attacks on the Others. What they don’t realize is that there are older and more dangerous forces than shifters and vampires protecting the land that belongs to the Others—and those forces are willing to do whatever is necessary to protect what is theirs…

Review

After the ending of the last book I couldn’t wait to get my paws on Marked In Flesh. The wait between books is just too long, but it was oh so worth it in the end. As soon as I started this book I was sucked back into the world of The Others and the human pack like no time had passed between the release of Vision In Silver and Marked In Flesh.

Anne Bishop really has a way with words and this story in no different. There is just something so captivating about the characters she creates and the world that she builds around them. As a reader, I feel as if I’m really there with the characters going through everything that they are going through at the same time.

Marked in Flesh starts out a little differently to the rest of the books in the series so far. There are a lot of POVs to consider and while it may be a little confusing as to who is say what and when, but it all makes sense the more you read. I loved reading about how different characters were reacting to the events around them. It really opened my eyes the world that Ms Bishop has created for The Others.

“We will give you some time to decide how much human the terra indigene will keep”

This books also focuses more heavily on The Others and Humans First and Last movement. The struggle between the two has hit an ultimate peak and the consequence from the actions of the HFL were felt by both sides when the Elders decided to take matters into their own hands.

After the way the last book ended I was really excited to see where Meg and Simon’s relationship would go. However with everything else that was going on, I felt that they had very little on page time together. I really wanted to see more of them. Just when I thought something major was going to happen and it didn’t, I think my heart gave out. You can do this to me. It is so unfair. I’m living for the next book. Please hurry I must find out what happens next.

PS. For some strange reason when I finished reading Marked in Flesh the first thing that came to mind was the song ‘Colours of the Wind’ from Disney’s Pocahontas. As strange as it may seem, there are lyrics in there that relate very well to this story.

Synopsis:

The Others freed the  cassandra sangue  to protect the blood prophets from exploitation, not realizing their actions would have dire consequences. Now the fragile seers are in greater danger than ever before—both from their own weaknesses and from those who seek to control their divinations for wicked purposes. In desperate need of answers, Simon Wolfgard, a shape-shifter leader among the Others, has no choice but to enlist blood prophet Meg Corbyn’s help, regardless of the risks she faces by aiding him.

Meg is still deep in the throes of her addiction to the euphoria she feels when she cuts and speaks prophecy. She knows each slice of her blade tempts death. But Others and humans alike need answers, and her visions may be Simon’s only hope of ending the conflict.

For the shadows of war are deepening across the Atlantik, and the prejudice of a fanatic faction is threatening to bring the battle right to Meg and Simon’s doorstep…

Review:

It was so great to be back with Simon, Meg and the rest of the gang in the others series. I have missed them so much. However now I have to wait another year for the next chapter in their story. So not fair, but I will wait. How could I not? Everything about this series is so captivating. This is urban fantasy at it’s best.

The first half of the book focuses on giving the reader lots of information about everything that has already happened and happening with the Human First and Last movement. Some new charters are introduced, both good and bad and some that I’m still unsure about and would like to know more about.

While there didn’t seem to be a ‘big’ action event towards the end of the book, there was still some pretty major things to happen. I couldn’t believe when I was reading it that the terra indigene would like to go that far with the humans, but they do take threats very seriously. It was just a bit of a shock really.

The relationship between Simon and Meg. This is a whole other thing. It’s there but at the same time it’s not. There is just something about this couple that is so intriguing. Can’t wait to see were they are heading.

And the ending is just beautiful.

Since the series was originally 3 books, I can see how this book could be more of an information filler in the series, but I wouldn’t be skipping over it because I may have just miss something that is important in the next books. No author does world building quite like Anne Bishop. I love it so much. Can’t wait for the next one in the series now.

Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side, Jessica Rules the Dark Side

Review:

I have had this sitting on my TBR pile for about 3 years now; always looking at it but never quite sure whether I really wanted to read it or not.

The title made it sound like a bit of a teenage fluffy duffy vampire romance novel. However I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn’t like that at all. Sure there is still romancing between of the main character, but there is also much more.

Just when things are starting to look like everything is heading for the sweet romance between a vampire and high school girl, oh look out the plot thickens. New characters come into play and so everybody is in for themselves.

Ending up really liking Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark side despite my initial reservations. Will be reading the next book in the series for sure.

Synopsis

After winning the trust of the terra indigene residing in the Lakeside Courtyard, Meg Corbyn has had trouble figuring out what it means to live among them. As a human, Meg should be barely tolerated prey, but her abilities as a cassandra sangue make her something more.

The appearance of two addictive drugs has sparked violence between the humans and the Others, resulting in the murders of both species in nearby cities. So when Meg has a dream about blood and black feathers in the snow, Simon Wolfgard – Lakeside’s shape-shifting leader – wonders whether their blood prophet dreamed of a past attack or of a future threat.

As the urge to speak prophecies strikes Meg more frequently, trouble finds its way inside the Courtyard. Now the Others and the handful of humans residing there must work together to stop the man bent on reclaiming their blood prophet-and stop the danger that threatens to destroy them all.

Review

Meg’s story continues on from ‘Written in Red’, the first book in ‘The Others’ series. However this time the danger comes in the form of two new drugs on the market and people murdering crows just for fun. It is up to everyone in Lakeside to figure out a way to stop it before the ‘bomb’ goes off.

It feel like I have been waiting forever to read this book and was not disappointed; loved it from start to finish. The story is captivating, with most of the same characters returning from the first book, along with new ones. The danger is growing more and more and hopefully the next book will bring some more answers.

Do any of them realize that Simon Wolfgard is falling in love with Meg Corbyn? Monty wondered. Does Wolfgard understand his own response to the girl? What about Meg? How does she feel? What would the rest of the Others do if one of their kind did fall in love with a human?

The only downside is the wait for the next book now.

Okay. I picked up a movie to watch tonight. You can watch it with me if you like. It’s a chick movie. Merri Lee said that means girls like it, not that there are small birds in it.

This has to one of the best book dedications I have seen in a while. It is taken from ‘Her Vampire Husband by Michele Hauf’. (ISBN: 978-1921-68570-5)

To Jeff: Because I know you would slay a dragon for me.

You are the only knight I will ever desire. Love You.

But really? Because that dragon carcass in the front yard could get just nasty, not to mention you’d always complain about having to mow around the tail. And do you think I’d let you hang the dragon’s head on the living room wall? I don’t think so. Thought we could have a grand backyard BBQ. And just think of the money we’d save on the grocery bill, not to mention our new dragon leather attire.

Review:

‘The sexiest romance you’ll read this year’ is a big statement to make and I don’t think it did the book any good. While there was romance in the story, it is definitely not the sexiest book I have read, far from it.
The story line was intriguing and flowing enough to keep me wanting more.
I was a little disappointed that there were not more chapters written from the Kasper’s point of view. It is always interesting to see what the lead male character is thinking.
All in all, a very enjoyable read.

Meg Corbyn is on the run. Alone and desperate, she stumbles into the Lakeside Courtyard, where the Others reside. Meg knows entering a Courtyard is a dangerous risk – most people who tangle with the Others end up dead – but it’s the only place she’ll be safe from the people chasing her.

For Simon Wolfgard, leader of the Others residing in Lakeside, Meg is a puzzle and he has to decide if she is worth the fight to keep her in the Courtyard. It will be a fight not just with the humans hunting her down, but with some of the Others – as well as a fight with his own confusing feelings towards Meg.

For Police Officer Montgomery, Meg is the property he’s supposed to recover – and the spark that could start a confrontation with the Others that would wipe out the human city of Lakeside.

And for Meg, who has seen her own future, living in the Courtyard is a chance to have a life – for what little time she has left.

Review:

There is nothing I didn’t like about this book. I just feel in love with everything; the characters, the plot and the world that Anne Bishop can so easily create.

While there are a lot of characters in the story and names to remember, it doesn’t get messy and everything is easy to follow. The plot doesn’t lag and there is a surprise upon every turn of the page.

I found it was the prefect fantasy read, with a bit a paranormal thrown in just to keep things interesting.
