"Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn't anyone who doesn't appreciate kindness and compassion." - Dalai Lama

Chained is the 9th installment of the Brides of the Kindred Series by Evangeline Anderson, and by this book readers are captivated by the universe that Anderson has created (and I say created because I'm almost positive she's not traveled via spaceship to these planets...I said almost, just in case). In this one we meet Maggie, one scientist who wears glasses and is kind of a klutz. We've met her before--briefly--when she mixed up the cake at Kat and her Twin Husbands' wedding/bonding ceremony. And let's just say that chaos then ensued. So, Xenobiologist Maggie sets out to study the plants on Gaia with a couple of mated Kindred. A pit stop at Yonnie Six and a slave break later she is thought to be lost, but never fear, Kor, the slave she named and claimed after setting him free comes to the rescue, because let's face it they're destined to be together...right? Well, obstacle after obstacle leaves you on the edge of your seat as you wonder when the supreme moment will be...I'd tell ya, but I'd hafta kill ya! Hahaha...I'd tell you, but it is way better if you read it for yourself! So what are you waiting for? Pick up Chained today!
Ok, here are some links and a tiny disclaimer!

So an intense semester and a full time job as super nurse has made me pretty cranky! And so my muse is begging me to get back in the saddle and write a book or three. I am still working on State of Resistance, but I've also outlined Aurum & Cekayda (something I've never really done so we'll see how it goes)! That means that I hope to get these books written pretty quickly!
Thanks everyone for all the emails! Don't hesitate to contact me...I love hearing from ya!

This week has been eye opening. I've learned how dependent (and dare I say addicted?) I am to something...my computer.
It happened on Saturday night....
I'd just gotten off work and my fingers were itching to type scenes from my brain. I opened the lid to my laptop and pressed the power button only to find the chilling phrase that announced its doom: NO OPERATING SYSTEM FOUND!!!!! (Cue scary music).
Needless to say I tried turning it off and back on again (it is after all IT 101). When that didn't work I was devestated. My laptop is only six months old...surely it can't be gone!!!!
I've got it in the ICU of the IT department at the hospital and the prognosis is good (fingers crossed). Though I wait patiently untily laptop comes home I am now anxiously awaiting the arrival of my new iMac. :(). The good news is that I keep everything backed up on a flash drive so none of my book covers or works in progress were lost in this senseless tragedy. So, I'll be the proud new parent of an iMac and I'll be helping my recovering laptop...
I told you it has gotta ne an addiction!
Don't miss out on the Romance Reviews Year End Splash! Lots of prizes, games and chances to chat with authors!!!!

Disclaimer: I can't give advice and that's not what this is. If you are pregnant and want to share sexy time with your husband/lover/whatever, then I suggest if you have any questions you ask your OB/GYN or healthcare provider. This is just from my research.
Can you have sex while pregnant?
Well, heck yeah, at least according to my research. Now, as long as you have permission from your OB, then it is perfectly safe to have sexy time.
Now, the nitty gritty of my research...
Sexual positions while pregnant:
We all know that a pregnant female will have the baby bump...and in an effort to not squish junior while making love these are some of the recommended positions...again, it is best to talk to your doctor. (I can't stress that enough, even if I wrote an epic novel about talking with your healthcare provider, then I couldn't stress talking with them enough.)
So, with that said here are some of the easiest positions for the pregnant female to accommodate:
- The spooning position seems to be recommended on many websites. This one is where he lies behind you like you're going to take a nap, but instead he lifts your leg and penetrates you from behind. This is a shallow penetration, but it keeps the pressure off the baby bump. Besides, nothing said he couldn't use his hands to play with certain parts of your anatomy...
- Female on top...Now this has some possibilities. While the woman gets into position on top, be it cowgirl, reverse cowgirl...whatever. The beauty part is the woman controls depth and the pressure is once again off the belly.
- Getting it from behind...Doggy style or whichever position is awesome for you and maintain pressure off the baby bump (see a pattern?)
- Also, one can have the female scoot to the edge of the bed and the male can go at it as though in missionary position, but without resting his weight on top of...you got it...the baby bump!

JJ couldn't remember the last time blood had tasted so good. She wrapped her hands around the arm that fed her, pulling the blood as fast as she could down her throat. While she'd always enjoyed blood, nothing had ever tasted this sweet, almost like dark chocolate and wine.
She closed her eyes and moaned as a warm body pressed itself to her side, cradling her head as she continued to feast. Her nipples pebbled and her clothing felt to confining, the cotton material abrasive against her now over-sensitive nipples.
"That's right, Jessica, take all that you need."
JJ strained to get closer, her body aligning itself to the heat that surrounded her. Her pussy wept with evidence of her arousal. She wanted this man who tasted like wine and chocolate, that smelled like the forest on a rainy night, and felt like a furnace. She released his arm, for the first time in her life she felt...sated...by the blood she'd drank. She'd always thought she drank more than normal for a darkling, but her parent's always told her it probably wasn't for need as much as taste. It didn't matter at this moment though, because she felt like she could run leap over mountains, and possibly even fly. She blinked, a hard mucled chest coming into her view. She traced her fingernails, now claws in her excitement, gently over the defined pectorals. Part of her knew this male, and another part rebelled at the possiblity of it being Alex who held her. It just couldn't be Alex that had fed her.
She raised her gaze to his bright blue one and her heart skipped a few beats. "Welcome back, baby."
Part of her wanted to melt closer into his arms, but another part--the part that had kept her alive for over three hundred years--rebeled the almost instant trust she felt for this male. Daniel hadn't earned her trust so readily. Instead he had earned it in equal parts blood, sweat and tears. But it had never been that way with Alex. She barely knew him, six months of dancing around each other, and she was honest with herself on occasion to admit that this was exactly what they'd been doing. But she wouldn't allow herself to blindly trust this male...couldn't.
She pushed away from him and rolled off the side of the small cot she'd been a moments away from christening with sticky, hot sex with one delicious wolf changeling. Her core clenched at the idea of him moving deep inside her--claiming her. No one claimed her. No one.
Alex's hand wrapped around her arm and she was pulled back onto the bed into his lap. Damn this wolf moved too fast. She hated how her body rejoiced at being back in his arms, how her already aroused body became soft and pliant.
JJ forced herself to stiffen and pull away, but his grip was relentless.
"Let me go," she said with a calm she didn't feel.
His nose moved up and down her neck before his tongue snaked out and lapped at her pulse. Everything within her turned molten and her core clenched in anticipation. An anticipation that she would never allow Alex to fulfill.
"You smell different."
She stiffened. He was rubbing all over her and insulting the way she smelled. Well, she'd just fought some damn witchlings and been almost burned to a fucking crisp all to save his furry ass. His tongue teased her pulse again, this time he bit gently at her neck. She forced herself not to moan, bit her tongue until the sweet coppery taste of blood filled her mouth.
"Not a bad different, but-," a lick followed by a more forceful bite, "delicious."

"Language is very powerful. Language does not just describe reality. Language creates the reality it describes." - Desmond Tutu
I may have posted this before, but it just gives me chills! People take words for granted, but words are pretty powerful things. Alone they are just random letters, but together they are sentences, thoughts, ideas, and quite possibly the beginnings of....something!
Anywho! Don't miss the rest of my blog tour for Begging for Forgiveness!!!

Here are a few that I found quite interesting!
- Wind Chimes? Yes, wind chimes. The noise scare spirits away. And you thought it was just a tinkling decoration!
- Prayers. Some people say to recite passages of scripture from the Bible.
- Garlic! Not just for vampires!
- Burning certain herbs, like, basil or sage (there are more). Now, as long as you don't burn the house down!
- A violet candle
- Wearing a gemstone like Apache's tear, diamond or clear quartz. For the record, there's not much I haven't run across that the clear quartz isn't good for.
- Mirrors pointed at entrances? Yeah, I'm thinking this is borrowed from fung shui. If the spirit sees itself then it will go away?

Here are some 'phenomena' that may indicate your house is haunted:
- Weird/Unexplained noises, such as footsteps, knocking, things being dropped, banging, etc. They can be quiet or loud.
- Doors opening and closing. Now if you see it then it probably scared the crap out of you, but you may have just heard or walked into a room where the cabinet doors were all open. One word: Creepy!
- Feelings of being watched. (Yikes!) I hate this feeling, goosebumps raise on your neck and you look around and find nothing!
- Cold spots, hot spots? Apparently any change in temperature without cause can be evidence of a haunting.

“If she chooses to be,” he (Alex) said cryptically.
“I’m not following. What do you mean if she chooses to be?”
“Everyone has a choice, JJ.”
JJ nodded and turned to leave. She still had some business to attend. Some business that involved her smashing in the face of one lying little creep. She had just made it out of the med room when Alex caught her by the arm, pulling her against him.
“Don’t you ever jump out of a car like that again Jessica! You scared the shit out of me.”
JJ looked up into his blue eyes in disbelief. She was a darkling, not only that but one bad ass bitch if she did say so herself. It wasn’t the first car she had waltzed out of while it was moving and it damn sure wouldn’t be her last. Alex must have picked up on her train of thought, because he shook her a little.
“I mean it Jessica.”
“Well, I’m a big girl and I’ll do whatever I damn well please!” JJ hissed at him, her anger coming to life.
“Why must you always do this?” he snarled, his incisors lengthening.
“Do what?” she snarled back.
“Make me crazy?” She would have told him it was her job, told him that she only did it because she knew it annoyed him or some other untrue statement just to piss him off more, but it seemed Alex had better plans for her mouth. Alex plastered his mouth across hers, thrusting his tongue inside her mouth at her surprised gasp. JJ pushed against his chest, an attempt to break free from his dizzying onslaught.
Alex growled deep in his chest before grabbing her hands and in a show of strength that left her panties drenched, clasped them behind her back and led her until she hit the wall. Alex’s mouth never left hers as he pulled her hands from her back and pinned them to the wall above her head. By this time she was putty in his hands and she wilted to his masterful tongue and the oh so wicked things he was doing to her.
Alex’s mouth gentled as the fight drained out of her leaving her pliant in his arms. He never released her hands, but he did release her mouth to nuzzle at her throat alternately licking and nipping at the tender flesh. JJ felt as if she were going to melt, already she could feel her legs becoming limp as noodles. But Alex was there, placing his hard thigh between her legs, bracing her against the wall as he continued his leisurely trip to her chest, taking an aching and distended nipple between his teeth. Her breath was coming in pants and the thigh situated between her legs was causing the most delicious pressure on her swollen and needy flesh.
“I’m sorry!” The disembodied voice was like a bucket of cold water. They parted panting and looking at each other warily. JJ felt so frustrated that she could scream. She was even more astounded at the evidence of how much Alex had affected her. Her claws were out and she could feel her small fangs starting to recede. JJ had totally lost control!
“I have to go,” JJ muttered as she rushed out. She had some business to take care of, but first she had a date with her vibrator.
So....when can we expect this book? I'm still writing it (WIP!), but I'm hoping to have it out December 2013 or Early 2014! (But I'm not promising, due to work, school...etc!)
Also, don't forget to follow along with my Book Tour for Begging for Forgiveness starting today!!!!! I am super excited about this book, as it is my first menage and first with m/m elements! So, go out and find your adventures in the pages of your...paperback or eBook!

The bathroom door opened and revealed a naked Xavier, well except for the towel that was slung across his hips. Beads of water took a tantalizing trail from his neck down his muscular chest and down his taut abdomen to end at the edge of the towel that only precariously held on to Xavier's trim hips. Skylar licked his lips at the sight of such beautiful masculine flesh on display. It seemed three weeks of recovery had done Xavier some good. He'd come a long way from being fed chicken broth and bandage changes to the fucking gorgeous male standing before him.
Xavier looked at the table and smiled. "Thank God, I'm fucking starved."
He waled to the table completely oblivious of the raging erection he'd caused Skylar.
"Help yourself," he growled. Xavier dropped the bag and turned.
"Look, I just assumed you'd brought enough for both of us, I already said I'd pay you back."
Skylar didn't want Xavier's money. He wanted his body, sweating and straining underneath his. He ran his hands through his hair and sighed.
"I did bring enough for both of us and I've already told you that I don't want your fucking money."
Xavier threw his hands in the air. "Then what do you want? You've been like this for the past week, and every time I try to go, you tell me that I can't leave. So, what's the problem?"
Skylar had tried. He'd taken cold showers and left the hotel room for longer than he could stand. All those nights sleeping next to this male, only to wake up tangled together. There were clumsy, half-hearted apologies from him and Xavier, but it didn't matter. His scent and the way he felt in Skylar's arms. It was all too much and now Skylar was going to do what he should of done the moment Xavier could move without groaning.
He crossed the distance between them and crushed his lips against Xavier's. And just like that his wolf settled, no longer scratching to be released. His wolf wasn't completely happy. Wouldn't be until he claimed his mate. Skylar pushed those thoughts aside. There was not way he would allow Xavier to spend his life with a man as broken as him. He couldn't let Xavier see what he truly was--a killer.
His lips moved from Xavier's mouth to his neck and licked along his pulse point.
"Sky, are you sure? I can't handle another betrayal."
Skylar growled at the vulnerability in Xavier's voice. He was strong, an alpha male, and shouldn't doubt anything. Skylar grabbed his brown hair and held him steady for his kiss. He released Xavier's mouth and stared into brown eyes that he'd come to expect to see every morning.
"I'll never fucking betray you."
He kissed him again, because he had to.
"And no one will harm you again. Never."
Xavier laughed. "I'm plenty capable of protecting myself."

He ran through the forest and burst into the clearing unsure of what he would find. Had he been less distracted by the most tantalizing scent he'd ever smelled, he would've been more stealthy, but he couldn't disregard the pain he smelled within that scent. Everything within him rose to protect whoever that scent belonged to. Skylar transformed from man to wolf almost immediately, the fast transformation causing some of his joints to ache. But it couldn't be helped. The overwhelming smell of blood had kicked him into action, and before he was aware of himself, he'd already ripped the throat out of two wolves who'd been biting at the bloody male lying on the ground.
He placed his body over the male and growled. Mine, his wolf growled within its mind. He'd already claimed the male that lay motionless beneath them. The soft moan was like music to his ears, assuring Skylar that the male still lived. Another attacked, but he easily dispatched him, this time enough in control he didn't kill. Already his mind churned with conflicting regret and joy at the deaths he'd bestowed.
Soon, the group left and he changed back into a man once again. He picked the male up into his arms and walked. He didn't have clothes, because his had been destroyed with his hasty transformation, but it didn't matter. He needed to get this male someplace safe.

Soon I find myself seated and perusing the menu hoping to find just the right thing for my rumbling tummy. I look up when the door opens and am surprised to see Aspen walking in the door. She sees me and smiles. She comes up to my table and...
Aspen: Thanks for helping me that day, it was...
Astrid: Crazy? Yeah, I have lots of days like that.
Aspen: I'm sure you do. Try the Lemon Pepper chicken with roasted sweet potatoes.
I take a moment to read the description and I'm amazed. It sounds exactly like something I want. I look away from the menu to thank her and I can feel my smile falling. Gone is the smile that she'd gifted me to be replaced by one of the most worried looks I've seen, and I'm a nurse. I've seen lots of worry.
Astrid: Honey, what's wrong?
She shakes her head and I know she's going to walk away and not divulge her worries to me, so I stand, grab her shoulders and guide her to sit.
Astrid: Okay, now you helped me so, it's only logical that I help you.
Aspen: That's not-
Astrid: Necessary? No, it's pretty necessary. I'm a nurse and it's kinda what I do. Besides, I'm nosy.
Aspen laughs at that, then nods.
Aspen: I'm just a little out of my element here.
I wait, but it's literally like squeezing blood out of a turnip with shifters.
Astrid: You're going to have to explain a little bit more.
Aspen: Well, you met Xavier and Skylar.
Astrid: Kinda in love with them?
Astrid: So what's the problem?
Aspen: I don't...doesn't it seem weird?
Astrid: Weird how? That you love two men? Maybe, but that's because society has defined that a couple is a man and woman. I'm sorry, I'm taking philosophy.
Aspen: That's okay. I just...I don't know.
Astrid: Let me ask you this, when you're with them how do you feel?
Aspen smiles and it doesn't take a genius to know exactly how she feels.
Aspen: I guess I feel...complete.
I smile. She really has found her mates.
Astrid: And how do you feel when you're not around them?
Aspen: Like a piece of me is missing.
Astrid: There you go. Don't worry about what others will think. Besides, I believe you three have a little one on the way.
Aspen rubs her stomach and smiles. She'll be just fine. She pats my arm and leaves me to order my meal (which was delicious.) As I leave I bump into a blonde male who sends chills down my spine and not the good ones, but I shrug it off. It's my last day in Pinewood Creek and I've got so much more to see before I have to leave and head for home.

Xavier: I didn't think it'd be this way.
Astrid: What would be this way?
He ran his fingers through his hair, then threw his hands in the air.
Xavier: I don't know--this.
Astrid: I realize you're going through lots of things, but I'm kind of lost.
Xavier: Sorry, it's just I don't know exactly what's going on myself. Three months ago I find out my ma-boyfriend cheated on me, but now I want the person he cheated on me with...hell, I can't live without her.
Xavier nods. I'm pretty much with the program at this point...Skylar and Xavier are mated and now Aspen has been thrown into the mix...somehow? It's starting to sound a lot like those romance novels I read too much of. Ah, who the hell am I kidding? You can never read too much romance-erotic or otherwise! I glance at my watch again...It's 7:50 p.m. and that means I've got--NO! NO! Focus!!!
Xavier: Yes. I just don't know what to do?
Astrid: What's upsetting you most?
He rests his head on his hands and sighs.
Xavier: I'm not sure.
Astrid: Sure you are. What upsets you most? And don't think about it, just say something.
Xavier: That I'll be replaced.
I pat his shoulder. I sure wouldn't leave him if I were Aspen--or Skylar for that matter.
Astrid: What makes you feel like that?
Xavier: I don't know.
I sigh. We could do this all night, but I've really got to get some sleep so I can come back in the morning.
Astrid: Obviously you're not secure in your relationship with Skylar, so you feel like he'll leave you for her.
Astrid: Look, he could've left you three months ago. He could've left you when he came to find Aspen....or whatever, but he didn't. You're right here with him. I think you'd both benefit if you'd sit down and talk with one another. Communication is an excellent tool.
Xavier nods but I can see he's got to work this out for himself before he'll even think about talking with Skylar. I've done what I could, and I'm pretty drained. I can only imagine how drained Xavier is. I stand and pat him on the shoulder.
Astrid: I've got this feeling, Xavier. I've got a feeling that everything will work out.
Xavier nods but I can tell he doesn't believe me. And quite frankly I'm not sure if I trust this feeling myself.
Skylar just wanted to forget his last assignment, so like he had for the past six months after he was forced to execute yet another shifter he stopped at the little restaurant a town over from his apartment to lose himself in good food. He never expected to lose himself in a female. He took the beautiful Aspen to bed the moment he caught her scent, his wolf beside itself wanting to claim its mate. But after it was over he knows he's made a mistake...because he's already mated. So, he runs and hopes he can beg his mate for forgiveness.
Xavier had never felt a betrayal so deep as when Skylar slid into bed beside him smelling of a female, not even when his old pack had nearly beat him to death. But soon that feeling of betrayal faded to confusion, then surprise when he realized that whatever female his mate had taken was also his mate.
Now Skylar and Xavier will hunt for their missing mate. But little do they know, Skylar's last assignment has a loose end that's just waiting for the right moment to strike--and it's set its sights on Aspen.
Can Aspen accept the man who left her pregnant and doubting mating all over again? Can Skylar and Xavier convince her to mate with not one, but both of them? Will Aspen survive to forgive?
Monday, September 16, 2013
I was working in triage when Caleb, Miranda, Aspen and a few others burst through the ER doors announcing they needed a doctor immediately. I calmly walked over to the male who held Aspen within his arms and began my questioning...
Astrid: What seems to be the problem?
Caleb: She's hurting in her stomach. (He points to Aspen.)
I smile politely, because there's no reason to alarm anyone. As I look Aspen over I notice she's a bit pale, but other wise she seems just fine. I place my hand on her arm and am relieved to find her skin warm and dry.
Astrid: Can you point to where it hurts?
Aspen's hand is already lying protectively over her abdomen, and the strained look around her eyes let me know she's worried and anxious. She moves her hand slightly in a circle to indicate it is her mid abdomen that hurts. I smile and nod.
Astrid: Ok. I need only one to go with me through triage.
The tawny haired male looks as though he's about to argue and I prepare to put on my stern nurse face, but as luck would have it Aspen decides that Miranda will follow her through the triage process. The slightly taller male with brown hair puts Aspen down in the wheelchair and kisses her on the forehead. The stress in Aspen's face momentarily disappears, but is quickly replaced when I close the triage door.
Astrid: I can let one of the guys in here if you'll feel better about the process.
Aspen shakes her head and I continue.
Astrid: Tell me what happened...
Aspen details the incident and relays that she is pregnant. Soon, I escort her to ER 1C and just as a precaution I place the telemetry leads on her. I give report to Arianna, another nurse who works in the ER.
Astrid: Got a 26 year old female that is 11 weeks pregnant who is having abdominal pain, mid abdomen, cramping like. Recent fall with no apparant injuries. She's anxious and waiting for you. Normal sinus on the monitor.
Arianna: Thanks. Do you know who her OB is?
Astrid: Dr. Sanchez.
Arianna: Ok, I'll tell Dr. B to go check her out and see if she wants me to call her.
I walk back to the triage room and relate that both Miranda and Aspen are in ER1C and that someone will update them soon. I also explain the one visitor per patient policy and notice that the tawny blonde male is about to burst from anxiety. His pacing isn't doing my calm any good.
Astrid: Sir, why don't you come with me.
I glance at my clock. 6:50 p.m. It looked like I wasn't getting off on time again tonight. The male follows me.
Astrid; What's your name?
Astrid: And what are you to Aspen, Skylar?
I expect he is her brother or cousin. They don't look alike, but surely he wouldn't allow his girlfriend or whatever to be carried by another man.
Skylar: I'm her ma-boyfriend.
I'm surprised to say the least.
Astrid: So, tell me what's going on.
He stares at me and I'm sure I need to check the mirror for the snakes growing out of my head. I've had this look before.
Astrid: You'll feel so much better if you just tell me.
Skylar: I fucked up. I'm sorry.
Astrid: Language doesn't bother me, so don't apologize. Just talk and I'll listen.
Skylar: I first met Aspen three months ago and it was instant. I wanted her and I had to have her...so I did.
Astrid: What do you mean by that?
Skylar: (sigh) I fucked her like a whore and then left when I realized what I'd done.
I wait. Silence is sometimes a good thing, no matter how awkward it may seem.
Skylar: He called right as I finished...not the first time, but the second time. I'd cheated on my fucking mate.
Obviously this was a slip he'd not meant for human ears, but I'm a nurse and I wore my big girl panties. I do believe I can take a few shifters.
Astrid: Who's your mate?
Although he looks horrified at his obvious slip, he answers.
Skylar: Xavier, but so is Aspen. How can this be?
Astrid: Sometimes I think things have a way of working themselves out and I believe you three, and I'm going out on a limb here and including the brown haired dude who carried Aspen in, will be just fine. Now that doesn't mean that you didn't do anything wrong, but maybe you can make up for your wrongs.
Skylar: How in the hell will she ever forgive me for leaving?
I pat his back and stand. There's not much more I can do.
Astrid: Trust me when I say she is crazy about you guys.
I look up and see the brown-haired male, Xavier, and I wave him in. He sits by Skylar and takes his hand, which Skylar pulls away. I sigh. There's a lot of work to be done between the three of them.
Astrid: Look, I'm not supposed to do this, but I can take one of you back to see her.
Skylar jumps up from his seat and I know he'll be going back with me. I feel bad that I can't take Xavier, too but it's hard to care for patients when there is a hundred family members. He gives me a slight nod and a sad smile that makes me want to cry. His brown eyes scream past pain that I can only contemplate and pray that I never experience. I pass Destini at the nurse's station and wave hello. She smiles and continues thumbing through papers. I leave Skylar at the door of Aspen's room and send a little prayer to whomever is listening to watch over these three. Something just isn't right, but I can't figure out what. As I clock out, I wave goodbye to Destini and instead of going out the bay doors, I go back to the waiting room. I sigh and take a look at my watch. 7:38 pm. I sit my bag down beside the brown haired male and I begin.
Astrid: Tell me all about it.
