#GiveAway ~ The Summoning By Linda Nightingale ~ @LNightingale

The Summoning
Ancient Gods Series Book 1
By Linda Nightingale

A Magnificent Black Pegasus:

In The Summoning, first chapter, the hero Eryael shapeshifts into a winged black horse to rescue the heroine from the bad guys. When I described this horse, I had in mind a Friesian stallion. So, I thought I’d tell you a little about the Friesian, one of my favorite breeds of horse. I bred, trained and showed the fabulous Andalusian, but I would have loved to own a high-school trained (elevated trot called Passage, and trot in place called Piaffe, plus lateral work, and airs above the ground) Friesian. They are truly poetry in motion.

The Friesian breed originates in Friesland in the Netherlands. These splendid horses conform to people’s idea of a light draft horse, and, in fact, were originally used as fancy carriage horses. However, they are nimble and graceful, currently quite popular in show arenas for their lofty movements and shining ebony coats. The Friesian ranges from 15 to 17 hands, are powerfully muscled, with thick manes and tails and feathers (long hair) at their fetlocks. Their necks are high-set and proudly arched. In a word, they are beautiful. If you would like to know more about the Friesian, visit the national association.


About The Summoning:
Heather Morique is a witch. The problem is she doesn’t know it. Her husband Jahill was a refugee from an obscure branch of the Arawak Indians. After his death, mysterious whispers lure her to his homeland of Jamaica. Soon, she finds herself in a web of secrets, lies and illusions.

Jahill’s people worship Eyrael, the God of Wind and Sea, and his brother Sofiel, the God of Fire and Earth. The new Shaman has pitted brother against brother, and these two powerful spirits from an alternate universe fight to become the tribe’s ruling deity. Will light or darkness reign?

When Heather unwittingly summons Eyrael, these two unlikely soul mates face a dangerous fate. The chemistry between them is more disturbing than the long-buried secrets.

Excerpt:

“Do not fear, beautiful witch,” he said over his shoulder. “If I am to meet my dark brother in battle, I shall confront him at my most powerful. The shape the People worship is a black stallion.”
“Do what you must.” Her voice came stronger now. “I understand you’re the only one standing between the Whisperers and me. They wished me to drown. First, they invaded my dreams, then they whispered that the sea would cleanse me of my sins and take away my grief.”
“When I advance, run as far and as fast as you can. When it is possible, I shall find you.” His human body shivered like the sea shimmers beneath the sun and melted. In the man’s place, a massive black horse stood, a warrior’s horse—a warrior horse.
Behind him, the woman gasped, then he felt a touch on his rear fetlock. “A Friesian stallion.” Awe overcame the fear in her voice. “Magnificent,” she breathed.
Eyrael, the black stallion, shook his head, ruffling the fall of his thick mane on his crested neck.
The witch peered past him, shrank back, trembling. “They are the Whisperers. They lured me here to kill me. If not now, they will whisper until I am insane.” She covered her ears. “What is that terrible sound?”
He could not speak, dared not turn to look at her. Sofiel was coming and, with him, her death. Eyrael snorted, pawing the sand. The People froze in their march, gaping at their God. His wind screamed, angry waves lashing the shore. Once again, Taino brandished his staff and called the lightning, ominous booms of thunder shaking the ground. Sofiel must have taught the Shaman this feat of fire. Hoping to avoid a battle, Eyrael trotted toward members of the tribe he recognized from other visits, long ago, and now they were old.
The gray-haired brave who’d spoken earlier shouted above the wind, “Welcome, God of Wind and Sea. It has been many years since we met.”
The Shaman pointed his staff at the elderly man. Ragni recoiled a step and fell silent. What was Taino’s power over these people? There were many of them, one of him. Why didn’t they overpower him instead of cringing at his word? Eyrael reared, trumpeting a challenge.
The warp-and-weft of the universes quivered.
The Shaman’s voice rose against the wind, shrieking warnings to Eryael. He threatened to capture the black stallion in a spell and geld him with the sacrificial blade. No one moved. Finally, Ragni, the old brave, turned to Taino. “Our God comes to do battle with yours. Stop, Taino. The God of Wind and Sea was with the tribe on the ancient journey from the Amazon basin to Xaymaca.”
As if the man hadn’t spoken, the witchdoctor cried, “Wayward Knowledge, I command you to my side. Bound-Spirit, answer the prayer of the Faithful. This woman is to be sacrificed for her crimes against your People.”
Eyrael halted, lifting his forefeet off the sand in a half-rear and crouched on his haunches, performing the levade, a battle move belonging to an earlier century.
“Foolish Spirit, she is no witch.” Taino threw back his head and laughed. “Ask the woman her crimes when she is tied on the altar. She will pay for what she has done.”
“I’ve done nothing.” At the top of her lungs, the witch called against the howling wind. She was drenched, wet hair clinging to her face, the rough brown gown hugging her figure. Yet she stood as regal as a queen.
The blonde witch had rallied from shock. When battle joined, she would stand with him. Happiness flooded Eyrael. A memory of sailing the crystal winds with Sofiel flashed through his mind, sadness gripping his heart. In this, the reality of Man, Eyrael would be pitted against his own brother.

Excerpt from Besotted:

Regan was just too damn alluring in that dress for him to accept that he couldn’t have her if he wanted her.
He was an idiot. He should have told her years ago. He should have told everyone. Despite the tongue- lashing he was silently giving himself, Tyler was certainly no fool. “The professor” to his friends, he was generally serious and professional. He had the smarts necessary to obtain both an MBA and a law degree, and he was now CEO of LHRE and on hiatus from one of the fastest growing tech companies in the country. He kept his cool in general, but again and again he behaved like an idiot around Regan.
Since that damn frog almost thirty years ago, he had loved no one but Regan. Sometimes they made it work together, like in high school, but most times not. His feelings were unchanged, but something always stopped him from declaring his love and asking her to do the same. This time it was something insurmountable.
And yet Tyler couldn’t stay away. He was the proverbial moth to the flame, flirting with disaster every time he flirted with her. He had promised to stay away, to keep her safe,but the attraction was undeniable. Yep, prize idiot.
Returning to the ballroom after the latest threats, Tyler briefly considered sharing the conversation, coming clean with Regan and perhaps moving their relationship forward. He was at a fork in the road but remained silent, Tyler knew he was on the wrong path but couldn’t summon the will to fix it. Not only were his problems unsolveable, but she was involved with Brandon. Tyler felt hopeless.
He was preoccupied just as Regan accused, but Tyler tried to give Regan the attention she deserved. He failed miserably until Regan suggested they just leave. That got his attention. Who knew when he would hold her in his arms again.
“Come dance with me again. It would be a crime to waste that dress.”
Encircling Regan in his arms, his body responded to her nearness, even as his mind worried over the earlier texts. He was unaware of his hand stroking her back, fingers lightly skimming over her bare skin. He wasn’t thinking clearly when he pulled her close or when he dropped kisses on her hair. He wasn’t paying attention, just acting on instinct, Regan was responding, her breath growing uneven, her hands clinging to his shoulders.

#Interview ~ Blood Instincts By Marie Lavender ~ @marielavender1

Blood Instincts

Blood at First Sight Book 2

By Marie Lavender


Interview with Marie Lavender:

Crystal: Today I have the pleasure of hosting Marie Lavender. Welcome Marie! I am so excited to have you here today.Would you share a little bit about yourself with us today?


Marie: I am from the Midwest, from a pretty small town in Indiana. I have two cats, but I will likely have so many more once my fiancĂ© and I live together (we’re cat people). I’ve been writing stories since I was nine years old, but before that point, they just played out in my head. I think I always wanted to be a published writer, to see my name on a book in a store or something. Not for fame or anything, but to be proud that I did, in fact, get there. That I touched lives somehow. I hope I have with my work.

I love beautiful scenery, and I hope to one day live in a beachside home with the love of my life. I am a fanatic online shopper, and it’s my dream to make it to Ireland to get it in touch with my roots one of these days.


Crystal: What are you currently working on?

Marie: I’ve been working on a romantic comedy, Chasing Ginger, which will be book one of The Misfits Series, a six-book set of tales about a group of zany friends and their romantic misadventures.

Crystal: Where did you come up with the idea for either your current release or your current WIP?

Marie: My latest release is a paranormal romance/urban fantasy with a slightly futuristic angle. The novel is titled Blood Instincts, which is book two of the Blood at First Sight Series. I always planned to write the sequel to Second Nature, but when I was finally ready to focus on the story, the heroine Myah grabbed me and wouldn’t let go. It was so compelling to tell her tale, to wonder…what if you found out something really crazy about yourself, about your family even, something that didn’t make sense in the real world? How might you handle it? So, that’s where I took the story, and it turned out well!

Crystal: Do you have a favorite snack that you like to munch on while writing? If so, would you mind sharing what it is with us?

Marie: I can never say no to a piece of dark chocolate. Plus, I don’t mind pairing it with pretzels.

Crystal: Do you have a favorite scene you would like to share with us?

Marie: Sure! I love the moment when Oliver corners Myah. So sexy…it reminds me of that first kiss most of us experience, with a bit of the paranormal thrown in.

A chill ran down her spine. She removed her hands from her pockets and crossed her arms over her chest, glancing away.

“Cold? I could warm you, you know.”
She jumped, and realized he now stood right in front of her. She noticed the trunk was closed. He wasn’t kidding about his speed. And that fantastic spiced cologne was drugging her mind. She had to curb the urge to get closer. “Ah, thank you for the offer, but I think it’s best we don’t—”
“A curious thing, to be sure. Why do you deny yourself, Myah?”
She saw his white teeth flash in the dim lights of the parking space. “Deny…what?”
“Why deny what you clearly want?” He leaned forward, nipping her mouth with his fang. As blood welled over her lower lip, he sucked on it. A part of her was somehow aware he sealed the wound at the same time he created it. How was that possible? Tingles began in a place where they shouldn’t be. Oh God, why was he doing this to her?
He growled, “Mmm…an ambrosia unlike any other. Do you know how sweet you taste?”
She shivered. This time, it wasn’t from the weather. It took every ounce of resolve to keep from leaning into his body.
“I remember when we kissed. Now I wonder how you taste everywhere else. Only in my dreams have I imagined it.”
She felt lightheaded, like this was a fantasy she should wake from but couldn’t. “Please,” she whispered. “We really shouldn’t.”
“I know you want this, Myah.”
Swallowing hard, she shook her head. “No. I promise you I don’t.”
His eyes flashed, with anger this time. “You’re lying. I smell your arousal, sweetheart.” How was it even possible? These pet names of his might be insults after all. She managed, “J-just because we, uh, we had one date and shared a kiss doesn’t mean—” “No, not in every case. But I’m right, yes?” He all but crowded her against the car, then glanced down for a split second before he looked in her eyes. “I could take you in no time, do you realize that? I might be up your skirt, have those perfect legs wrapped around me, and I’d be buried inside that sweet honey in less time than it would take for you to figure out a way to deny us both. But, here’s the thing. You won’t fight me at all. How do I know? I just do. A male knows when a woman wants him. A vampire’s sense of smell is stronger than you can imagine. It’s a disadvantage sometimes. Now? It tells me you want what I can give to you…”
Oliver cocked his head for a moment. “Besides, I distinctly remember you inviting me into your place, right? That wasn’t a lie.”
She trembled. God help her, her body grew warm at the taunting tone, his nearness a drug. He smelled delicious, exotic with a hint of spice and a scent like oranges. She thought it must be the most potent aphrodisiac on the planet.
“Don’t pretend you’re not feeling something.”
His voice was deep, low, and unbelievably hypnotic. After a moment, she realized she’d leaned toward him, as if desperate for a kiss. She forced herself to snap out of it. Except that was when he wrapped an arm around her and drew her breasts up to his chest. His large, hard body consumed her.
“Myah, look at me. No…look at me.”
She gazed in his blue eyes, unable to glance away for composure.
“You know I’d never hurt you. I can’t. You must know the truth by now. But, this force will draw us together regardless of what happens. Don’t you realize I would give anything to kiss you again, to touch you, to taste you? Everywhere?”
She whimpered as his mouth hovered over hers. She could almost taste him, a dark and minty scent. Why was it so hard to turn away from this man…vampire? He was right about her wanting him. She probably wouldn’t fight him at all if he made a move.

Crystal: When you are not busy writing wonderful stories to keep us lucky readers entertained, what do you like to do? Do you have a hobby?

Marie: I read romance novels, listen to music, and watch TV shows or movies. I’m also currently on a kick where I play phone apps in my free time. I do Words with Friends, or enjoy playing Mahjongg or hidden object games.

Crystal: Do you have a favorite background noise you like to have going while you write (TV, Music, kids playing)?

Marie: Mostly, I write in silence, unless the scene requires music to set the mood. For historical stories, sometimes I’ll play music from the time period. Or, in the case of modern tales, I’ll listen to music that the character likes.

Crystal: Thanks for visiting. It has been a pleasure having you visit today. Can you think of anything else you would like to share with us today?

Marie: Thanks so much for inviting me! Readers can find out more about me on my official author website, subscribe to my three blogs, connect with me on Twitter, Facebook or Google+, or join my monthly newsletter for updates.
