Work in Progress: State of Resistance

I'm still dutifully working on the Chronicles of JJ second installment: State of Resistance and I hope that my muse will allow me to have this finished before the middle of Novemeber.  But here is a little snippet from the draft and be kind as it is unedited!  Now, just to catch you up a bit, JJ is a darkling that we met in State of Unrest at the very end.  She is an agent with an organization called: AEM which stands for Alliance of Everlasting Matters (Sort of like the FBI/CIA for the Everlasting world).  So, let's get to know JJ a little better!

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 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."

Something to Think About

Book Review!!!

It's been a while since I've done a book review, and for that matter it's been a while since I've read (a book not related to school or work!).  So, as I'm browsing through my eReader I stumble upon Aramus, which is penned by Eve Langlais (Of which it is no secret that she is a fav author of mine) and I just had to read it.  What's interesting is this book features my least favorite cyborg, Aramus, so it took a lot of me talking my self into reading it!  Anyways, here's what I thought:

Langlais does it again in her Cyborg series!  I'm super happy that the female ended up being human, because it was good to see that not all humans are evil!  Aramus was not one of my favorite Cyborgs, actually my least, but after reading this he's moved up in my list--a lot!  I loved Riley, such a sweet girl, but at the same time she's got some sass!  The chemistry between her and Aramus is "asteroid-lava" hot!!!!  I absolutely cannot wait for Seth's story!!!!  I don't do stars, but I did give it 5 stars on Goodreads!

And of course here are some links!

Disclaimer:  I bought this book because I wanted to read it, and I wrote the review because it seemed like a really good idea!

Something to Think About

"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!!!

Protecting Yourself from Evil Spirits

With the belief of evil spirits comes the ways to deter those evil buggers!

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?  
Now, it must be said that if you burn something, you shouldn't leave it unattended.  I remember this one time - WHOOSH!- well you get the picture!
Oh and let it also be known that I am not an evil spirits guru or expert.  When I have ghost problems, I call the Ghostbusters! LOL!

Is Your House Haunted? (Repost)

Have you ever felt as if you were being watched?  Felt a cold draft when you walked into a room?  Have you ever felt that your house was...Haunted!!??!!

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.
