EXCERPT

“Mr. Lobo, sir.” Carla interrupted him, with just a hint of sarcasm. “Could you please cut the meteorology report and one of you two tell me about your little walk?” She fired a quick glance at me and went back to eyeballing Lobo.

I loved it how she emphasized the word Mr., just the way Lobo had addressed me when I first met him—Mr. Golden.

His eyes glittering, Lobo crammed half a pizza slice into his mouth instead of responding immediately. Chewing slowly, just to teach her a lesson, I was sure, his gaze never wavered even when he grabbed his bottle of beer and washed down that last bit of food.

Arms crossed in front of her, Carla stared back at him with arched eyebrows, waiting for her answer.

“Patience, young lady, patience,” Lobo growled as he wiped his lips with a napkin. At the words, “young lady,” Carla’s jaw muscles tightened and she fixed him with a smoldering stare of her own. She hates it when adults call her that.

“I’ll tell you,” I said, also getting tired of Lobo’s delaying, lesson-teaching tactics. So for the next fifteen or twenty minutes as we continued to eat, and with Lobo eventually helping, I told her about the walk he and I had taken. So between the two of us, she got it all—Lobo’s statement about Mom’s visit as a warning, his sense of a coming and possibly dangerous event, the visit to my old house, the dragonflies up on San Marco and lastly, my experience with Frozen Time.

As we finished, she looked at me in disbelief, her eyes wide. “Frozen Time? It was you who did that? On the battlefield back in December?” Her expression seemed to say, “My, my, look at you.”

“Jeff’s ability to freeze time and your ability to manipulate matter and energy,” Lobo told Carla, “might well be needed if indeed this warning by Jeff’s mother proves valid.”

“Lobo,” Carla said. “You keep talking about this warning from Jeff’s mom combined with your own perceptions about an event that could occur, but you won’t tell us what you know. Come on! The more we understand, the better prepared we’ll be.”

You go, girl! She was so on target.

About the Author
A former award-winning educator, Doug writes about things paranormal and historical. His interest in the paranormal comes from personal experiences as detailed in the nonfiction adult book he and wife wrote titled, AN EXPLOSION OF BEING: AN AMERICAN FAMILY'S JOURNEY INTO THE PSYCHIC. Out of those events and extensive historical research, he created SLIDING BENEATH THE SURFACE for young adults, Book I of the St. Augustine Trilogy. Doug set his trilogy in the oldest and most haunted city in the United States, St. Augustine, Florida not only for those reasons, but also because it's his favorite place to visit. Books II and III of the trilogy are on the way.

When she came back, she was wearing sexy lingerie designed to entice, but it wasn’t necessary when it came to them.

“Sorry, I sleep in the nude,” Chase said, removing his pants. He stretched out beside her, pulled her into his arms, and nuzzled her neck. “Take it off, Nikki. I want to feel your skin against mine.”

Without complaining about his arrogance, she sat up and removed the lingerie, her gorgeous body a feast for the eyes. She threw it to the foot of the bed.

“The thong too,” he added, lazily circling her nipple.

She chuckled, removed it, and slid into his arms. “You do know you are very demanding.”

“I want to be able to find you without unnecessary barriers.”

She half lay on his chest, her knee hitched up to cradle his placid manhood. “I don’t think a few flimsy clothes would stop you.”

He chuckled. “No, they wouldn’t.” He stoked her shoulder.

She buried her face in the crook of his neck, her hand sliding up to stroke his hair. The movement was sensual, yet soothing. “I’m happy we did this. You are an amazing lover.” She spoke so softly, but he heard her.

“It takes two, babe.”

He woke her up in the morning with a kiss and made love to her again.

About the Author
Julie mainly confines her writing to three genres: Christian inspirational, YA real-world science fiction, and normal science fiction. 


She likes teaching, writing, reading, sleeping, doing puzzles, and hanging out with friends. (Not necessarily in that order)


Writing has made her super picky about the things she reads but normally, her reading list includes something that fits under the thriller, mystery, science fiction, or fantasy.


Occasionally, she attempts short poetry. The poems turn into songs, which she sings with abandon when nobody's looking.

Seventeen-year-old Raine Cooper has enough on her plate dealing with her father’s disappearance, her mother’s erratic behavior and the possibility of her boyfriend relocating. The last thing she needs is Torin St. James—a mysterious new neighbor with a wicked smile and uncanny way of reading her.

Raine is drawn to Torin’s dark sexiness against her better judgment, until he saves her life with weird marks and she realizes he is different. But by healing her, Torin changes something inside Raine. Now she can’t stop thinking about him. Half the time, she’s not sure whether to fall into his arms or run.

Scared, she sets out to find out what Torin is. But the closer she gets to the truth the more she uncovers something sinister about him. What Torin is goes back to an ancient mythology and Raine is somehow part of it. Not only is she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life.

TEASER

I dragged my eyes from Torin and glanced at Mom. She wore an innocent grin, which didn’t fool me one little bit. I couldn’t help but wonder why she hadn’t told me the two of them had met. Taking a deep breath to calm my pounding heart, I focused on their conversation. “Have you spoken with Mr. Peterson yet?”

Torin chuckled. “Yeah, he’s a funny guy. He said it was no problem at all, that we should have parties around here more often.”

“Really?”

“Really. We met the day I arrived and hit it off.” He grinned. “We share a passion for unique mailboxes.”

I giggled.

Torin grinned back. “I came over to personally invite you to my party, Freckles.”

“Me? I, uh...” Did he just call me Freckles in front of my mother?

He bowed stiffly and proper like an English gentleman. “Please. It will be an honor to have you there.”

Author Bio
I find it hard to sum up my life in a paragraph, but I'll try. Reading has always been a passion for me and writing is as instinctive as breathing. Every inhale is an idea; every exhale a creation. Flutter, The Discover Series was my debut release and since then I have written a contemporary romance, The Edge of Darkness. The only thing I do better than writing? Making beautiful, sassy and independent, girls. My daughter's will always be my greatest accomplishment, my biggest fans and my every inspiration. I live, breath and would die for them!

I've been married to one of the greatest men in my life for 7 years and I love him more than chocolate (you know shit just got real , Justin Timberlake and Friday's. Without him my website would be a mess and I would probably being paying more taxes than I should be. He is a jack of many trades and this is just my opinion but I like to think besides my daughters, I'm his second biggest accomplishment. (Does anyone else hear a horn tooting?)

I was born in Denver, Colorado -but I will always think of sunny Arizona as my home. I don't have a big family, but I'm close with my sister, brother & my mom. My mom is my hero, my inspiration, and I couldn't have asked for a more amazing person to be raised by. She has supported me throughout this crazy adventure and I'm lucky to have her on my side!

6 things you should know about me:
1. I'm a tornado with lipstick! Translation: I'm very girly, but I can get down and dirty with the best of them.
2. I adore the color pink!
3. I love things that sparkle (including vampires!)
4. I like even numbers (hence 6 things about me, not 5)
5. I'm loyal to a fault but I like to see the good in everybody. Don't mistake my kindness for weakness though because my bark is not always bigger than my bite :))
6. I don't like calling readers 'fans'. When it come down to it, I am all YOUR biggest fan! MWAH!

I will never be able to thank every reader, every blogger or every author who has helped me in one or a million ways since I published but I will try every chance I get. Y'all are the reason I am here and every comment, every message, every review makes me feel like I have a reason to be. So to the moon and back, THANK YOU! Okay, so this was a little longer than a paragraph. My stalker links all in one super easy spot.

Chase knew he wouldn’t last long, not when she was causing havoc on his senses. Her fingers, tongue, mouth, and teeth were everywhere. He groaned and jerked upward when she moved even lower and started caressing his abs. Then her hands slid under his firm buttocks and squeezed them. He barely controlled the groan that slipped from his lips.

“Do you know how I admired these the first day I walked into your house? I wondered if they felt as powerful as they looked,” she whispered.

“You called me a baboon,” he said in a voice he hardly recognized.

She chuckled. “A very sexy baboon.”

Her hot breath seemed to sear his skin straight to his muscles. They contracted. He was rock hard and aching. He prayed she wouldn’t touch him. He would fall apart and embarrass both of them. Her breasts grazed his erection, and he groaned.

No, he couldn’t take it.

He reached down, pulled her up, and rolled them so she was under him. “I’m going to love you, again. You, sassy lady, are bent on driving me insane.”

“But it’s so unfair. Why can’t I take charge?”

She pouted so prettily that he couldn’t help kissing her lips. “You do that with every look, every touch, and... oh!” Her hand closed around him. Stroked him. He closed his eyes.

“It is my turn, cowboy. I’ll be accommodating and take your preferences into consideration, but I’m still in charge,” she whispered in his ear and bit his lobe. Chase groaned.

Nikki smiled with satisfaction. “Where are they?”

“Huh?” he mumbled like an idiot. Her hands were driving him crazy.

“Protection, cowboy. Where are they?”
