Phoenix Teaser 4

“Good, they’re here,” my companion murmured, eyeing the other car.

A hotel room door to the right opened and a tan skinned man with wavy black hair and a beard nearly identical to Phoenix’s stepped out and nodded before heading back inside. He shut the door, leaving it cracked so we could enter but the brisk morning air couldn’t sweep inside at full force.

“Let’s go and get this over with.”

Phoenix unbuckled and climbed from the car and I mimicked his actions, peering up at the now cloudless sky. Nothing fluttered above, but that didn’t mean there wasn’t someone up there, or following in a car. Forcing myself to turn away, I followed my large companion as he led the way to the hotel room. He held the door for me and closed it behind us, activating every lock the door had. There weren’t enough in my opinion.

“Phoenix, you said this was urgent,” a tall, thin woman announced, striding from the bathroom after we were securely inside. Her accent was thick, but I’d never heard anything like it. It was almost a voice that was out of this world, or maybe just from a part of the world I’d never ventured: the water. “What’s wrong?”

His lips were pressed into a thin line when he pointed toward my tracking bracelet. “We need that removed. You’re the only person I know who might be able to take it off.”

The woman eyed me, her dark curls shimmering in the room’s dim light. “I see. And who is this exactly?”

“Louisa, Chet, this is Sparks,” Phoenix introduced. “She’s a fire dragon. Sparks, this is Louisa, the undine I mentioned, and her husband, Chet.”

Louisa’s eyes narrowed as Chet’s eyes widened. Obviously he was still growing used to the world of the supernatural. Or he was surprised that a fire dragon existed since even Phoenix had thought we were extinct. The undine didn’t appear the least bit shocked. If anything she seemed perturbed.

“Why would I help a fire dragon?” Louisa asked, crossing her arms over her chest to glare at her cousin, or at least Phoenix had said this was his cousin…of sorts.

“I need her help,” he replied, his eyes spilling a desperation he tried to keep out of his voice. “I think…I think she’s my link.”

His link? I had no idea what that was, but by the shocked, raised eyebrows on Louisa’s face and her suddenly wide eyes, she knew exactly what that meant. It wouldn’t do me any good to ask about it yet since I doubted Phoenix would explain, at least until the tracker was removed.

“I see. You’re sure?” Louisa once again studied me, this time in a far less aggressive way, but still intense.

“No, but I felt the draw, and I’m hoping by removing the bracelet we’ll find the mark.”

And now I was done being patient.

#TeaserTuesday with a twist!

Hello there beautiful Tuesday! Monday was way too long, so it’s good to have you back with us once again. Time to show off what a friend and I have been working on!

We’ve all seen movie trailers, or at least I hope we have. Unknown to some people is that book trailers are now becoming a thing. I’ve created a few of them, but this is the first time I’ve teamed up with my friend, Sharon Drury, to do it. She is the amazing musical talent behind this video. The song is original, and totally all her doing. I sent the video to her, she created the amazing music to go with it. You should check out more of her work at: www.northcountrystudios.com.

This trailer is for my upcoming release, which is on pre-order right now, and for only $.99! Phoenix Awakened is a New Adult Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy. See below for the summary. If you love dragons, elementals, and one hot Phoenix, this is your read. You can view snippets of this books (and others) on my Snippet Saturday posts!

Fire Dragons, the most powerful dragon race on Earth.

Until the war left them as shadows of the race they once were.

Little more than slaves to the water dragons, they’re kept in line through destitute conditions and tracking devices. Sparks has known both lives, the prosperous and the starving, so when the opportunity arises for a little indulgence, she jumps at the chance, setting into motion a chain of events from which there is no turning back. With her fire power and dragon acting out, Sparks has no choice but to attempt escape, or face the consequences of her actions.

On the run, Sparks’s countdown begins. If she can’t remove the tracker, she’s dead. So when a gorgeous stranger shows up offering his help in exchange for hers, she has little choice but to accept. It isn’t long before Sparks discovers that Phoenix may be more than he seems, and that their lives are tied together in ways neither expected. Time is of the essence, but will they have enough to save both Sparks and her people from the water dragons?

It’s #Christmas time, which means it’s time for a Christmas #Sale!

You read that right! It’s time for my annual Christmas sale on all of my Christmas books! Currently there are three, with plans to add a new one to the line up every year. Next year’s book is already underway (what better time to write a Christmas book than at Christmas time?).

Christmas Sale Graphic

This Christmas Collection was never planned. The first book, First Christmas, was planned, but I never intended to write more than that one book in this world, but by popular demand, I’ve given two more of the characters books. Now that I’ve started, so many other characters have decided that they want their own books as well, and who am I to say no? After you finish Evergreen Christmas, you’ll have to take a guess at who’s next!

In each of these books I try to leave a piece of Christmas magic behind with a bit of a message for the season. It’s my favorite time of year. It always has been. I’d say it’s hereditary actually. Most people don’t know me long before they realize how much of a Christmas addict/fanatic I am.

That being said, I hope you take the time to read these books and find the messages within, as well as enjoy the adventures along the way. Like my other books, these are paranormal romances, and they feature ice dragon shifters, elves, polar bear shifters, and more!
