DEMON WARDEN HAS A NEW COVER! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

 And for a limited time, you can grab it for just 99 cents! 


BLURB:
Demons are a girl's best friend... or worst nightmare. It depends on the day. Some try to steal your soul, and others drive you nuts with their aloof, acerbic ways. I would know, I have a demon warden. My name is Dinah, and I am a weirdo of supernatural proportions. This is the story of how I almost lost my soul and was saved by a sexy—ahem, infuriating demon prince.

Disclaimer: angels are NOT the good guys. Sassy heroine learning to use her powers, grumpy hero, enemies to reluctant allies, to friends, to more ๐Ÿ˜‰ More action than romance.

Memphis May Fire - Blood & Water (Official Music Video)

I just spent an hour listening to this song non-stop while writing an action-packed scene of NEPHILIM HARBINGER, my latest WIP. So, so badass!


LYRICS
I used to think that I deserved this
Tried my best but never perfect
I was helpless and you knew it
You like to think you’re a martyr but you’re just abusive
So now I’m not afraid to admit that there’s nothing left
I know you’ll try to manipulate me again
But I’ve come to grips with the fact that what’s dead is dead
What’s dead is dead. What’s dead is dead

I bet that this is what you wanted
I can’t believe you got the best of me again
I thought that you were being honest
And now I wish I would have never let you in
Ya I know it’s my fault
I love deep, then lose it all
I guess I wanted to believe it
But blood’s not thicker than water after all

All the years spent with a vermin
Left me soul sick, always searching
I learned that trust is rarely worth it
You can’t believe what you hear from the mouth of a serpent
What’s dead is dead. What’s dead is dead. What’s dead is dead

I bet that this is what you wanted
I can’t believe you got the best of me again
I thought that you were being honest
And now I wish I would have never let you in
Ya I know it’s my fault
I love deep, then lose it all
I guess I wanted to believe it
But blood’s not thicker than water after all

You fooled me once, twice, never again
This is cut ties, no goodbye, nail in the coffin
This is the nail in the coffin
Never Again

I bet that this is what you wanted
I can’t believe you got the best of me again
I thought that you were being honest
You were never being honest

I bet that this is what you wanted
I can’t believe you got the best of me again
I thought that you were being honest
And now I wish I would have never let you in
Ya I know it’s my fault
I love deep, then lose it all
I guess I wanted to believe it
But blood’s not thicker than water after all

LETHAL PREY BY SELENE KALLAN


BLURB:

WHEN NIGHT FALLS, MONSTERS COME OUT TO PLAY.
I should know, I’m one of them.
A beast turned me into a mythological creature two centuries ago during an endless night of blood and pain. And now, cursed with an unquenchable hunger and deadly power, I hide in the darkness to take the lives of mortals who are worse than me. When the light comes out, I pretend to be one of them, a mortal with a boring job and an obnoxious boss.
My two worlds collide when a serial killer lurks so close I can almost smell it. I find myself tangled in an unexpected friendship with a lively young woman, her girlfriend—and a detective that’s too smart and intriguing for his own good.
I try to keep my distance, to focus on my hunt, but the promise of company and affection are too hard to resist. This detective is unlike most mortal men I’ve known in my too-long life, and our careful friendship turns into unstoppable attraction. Soon, my defenses melt under the burning heat of passion. 
But my distraction brings consequences. The huntress becomes prey. And the storm of pain and blood that strikes me by surprise threatens with washing away what’s left of my humanity… Should I fight for what’s left of me, or drown it myself?



LETHAL PREY is part of the LOVE BITES collection!

THE DEMON TIDE BY LAURIE FOREST

THE BLACK WITCH CHRONICLES: THE DEMON TIDE 






The realm war is near and the Prophecy is at hand. The Black Witch is back…and the demon tide is coming. Prepare to be spellbound by The Black Witch Chronicles.

Nothing can stop the demon tide…

Newly exposed as the Black Witch of Prophecy, Elloren Gardner Grey is on the run, not knowing if she’ll find friends or foes. With her fastmate, Lukas Grey, either dead or in the hands of High Mage Marcus Vogel, Elloren knows the only chance of turning the tide of the coming war is to seek allies who will listen long enough not to kill her on sight.

In the Eastern Realm, Water Fae Tierney Calix and Elloren’s brother Trystan have joined the Wyvernguard to prepare for Vogel’s attack. But Trystan is fighting on two fronts, as the most despised and least trusted member of the guard. And Tierney’s bond with Erthia’s most powerful river has exposed a danger even more terrifying than the looming war.

Powerful magic and a deadly legacy combine for the most explosive twists yet in The Black Witch Chronicles!

YOU BELONG TO ME BY SNOW WHITE BLOOD: TWISTED FAIRYTALE SONG

I adore a wonderful song with a beautiful video that tells a story, and if it's a bit dark, even better! And YOU BELONG TO ME by Snow White Blood  (feat. Danny Meyer & Stimmgewalt) has it all! I'm so obsessed! 


LYRICS

[Intro]:
You belong to me

[Verse 1]:
The jolly sound
Of chiming bells
Where has it gone?
Now I’m a bird
Trapped in your cage
What have I done?
And you say:

[Pre-Chorus]:
I’m your prince –
You better be my princess
Lie beside me
Give me your sweet kiss
Don’t play coy, you want it too!
I suffocate because of you

[Verse 2]:
My little bird
Your eyes reveal
You’d fly away from me
But I always get
The things I want
That’s what you
Fail to see, my dear
And you say:

[Pre-Chorus]:
I’m your prince –
You bettะตr be my princess
Lie bะตside me
Give me your sweet kiss
Don’t play coy, you want it too!
I suffocate because of you

[Chorus]:
But still, a glimmer
Of hope remains
Finally, one day
We will be okay…
…if you just obey me
…if I try hard enough for you…
You can’t escape …
…and in the end, you’ll see…
…we will live in harmony
…you belong to me

[Verse 3]:
All that you’ve said
All that you’ve done –
Scars on my mind
My dear, you’re mine
Yet, I can’t go
What if I’m wrong?
Can’t leave you behind
We’re intertwined

[Pre-Chorus]:
I’m your prince –
You better be my princess
Lie beside me
Give me your sweet kiss
Don’t play coy, you want it too!
I suffocate because of you

[Chorus]:
But still, a glimmer
Of hope remains
Finally, one day
We will be okay…
…if you just obey me
…if I try hard enough for you…
You can’t escape …
…and in the end, you’ll see…
…we will live in harmony
…you belong to me

But still, a glimmer
Of hope remains
Finally, one day
We will be okay…
…if you just obey me
…if I try hard enough for you…
You can’t escape …
…and in the end, you’ll see…
…we will live in harmony
…you belong to me

[Bridge]:
Close your eyes to this disaster
They lived happily ever after

Close your eyes to this disaster
They lived happily ever after

Close your eyes to this disaster
They lived happily ever after

Close your eyes to this disaster
They lived happily ever after

[Outro]:
You belong to me
You belong to me
You belong to me
You belong to me
You belong to me
You belong to me
You belong to me
You belong to me

Anchored: Selkie prompt inspired short story.


I blinked at him, still not sure if it was a dream.
Heaven knows I have weird dreams all the time.
I pinched my leg with my right hand, hidden under the table, blinked hard.
Nope, there was still a surreally beautiful, silver-haired man with a small black velvet box in his hand, holding a ring with a blue stone.
And everyone in the small cafรฉ had noticed too. No sound of chatter or the clink of spoons in ceramic.
“What?” I repeated. Because apparently, that was the only word I could remember.
He swallowed and licked his lips nervously. His beautiful, rosy lips--
I shook my head. 
“Maybe I should have invited you to a coffee first before proposing,” he mused, an adorable flush settling on his pale cheeks.
No, not adorable, dammit!
He’d just proposed in the middle of a busy cafรฉ to a complete stranger. He was probably not right in the head. And if an anxious disaster like me could tell, then that wasn’t very promising.
“Say yes!” said one of the waiters, the kind-faced lady that had given me free cookies the day before.
Others echoed her, lifting their frothy cocoa mugs as if they were beer tankards and we were all toasting.
Some look just as stunned, probably gawking at the man, at the silvery coat that seemed to glow even in the soft light of late afternoon coming through the windows. At his elegant six-foot frame and that face that seemed carved by an artist.
I felt lightheaded.
“I-I need air,” I said, getting up, almost stumbling with my clumsy feet as I rushed towards the glass door and pushed it open, rushing across the cobbled street of the quiet little town and then running, not sure where.
It’d been a long time since I’d literally run from a stressful situation, but I had a good excuse. I’d never been proposed by a stranger. A too-beautiful-to-be-real stranger.
I stopped, clammy hands on my knees as my lungs burned for air.
Breathe, you idiot, I scolded myself.
I did, gulping, salty, cool air, the beeping in my ears receding. The sound of waves crashing against stone helped as well. I matched my exhalations with every wave. Minutes later, no idea how many, I was able to stand straight, and overlook the imposing view of the ocean, beating against the cliff. 
The sun was setting, casting orange and purple light over the horizon. So beautiful that I forgot for a moment about how my face still burned and my hands were shaking.
I knew the image would be forever imprinted in my mind, and even though it had been years since I’d painted, I wanted to render that sunset, even if I could never do it justice.
“I’m sorry.” 
I froze, half turning towards the sound of that voice. 
Oh my gods, the loon followed me!
Strangely, the sharp edges of panic poking at my stomach became duller at the sight of him. Silver blond hair waving in the breeze, ocean eyes open, and kind and embarrassed. The sunset light made him look even more beautiful, something that should be impossible. His coat waved a bit on the wind and I felt compelled to touch it again.
I clenched my hands.
No, that was the reason why this mess had begun the day before at the very same cafรฉ I'd just fled.
I didn't approach people normally. But he’d not noticed when his coat had dropped from the back of his chair, too engrossed in the book he was reading. What if someone had stepped on it? So I’d swallowed the awkwardness and handed it to him, mesmerized by those eyes that managed to be gray, blue, and green all at once.
And I was staring like a complete idiot again.
“My sister did say that humans in this era might be a bit stunned with a marriage proposal so fast,” he said, head tilting slightly, a shy smile on his face.
I let out a hysterical laugh. “Yeah, a bit. And what on Earth did you mean by 'getting married according to human customs as well?'”
He blinked, something like apprehension flashing in his eyes. “I would explain right now, but I think you need some time,” he took a step closer and handed me my book and my blue wool coat, careful, waiting.
I took a step forward and received my things, my fingers brushing against his for a moment. A warm, pleasant tingling sensation raced through my skin from only that minimal contact.
“Do you mind if I accompany you? Perhaps invite you to have some dinner, since I didn’t allow you to enjoy your cocoa?” he requested, voice deep, but velvety, mesmerizing.
I licked my parched lips, shook my head to clear my thoughts.
Part of me wanted to say no, but hadn’t I come here to this quaint little town that barely did show up in maps to be different?
To learn how to let go and just exist without worrying about things like being reasonable?
And wasn’t spending time with a beautiful and mad stranger a good way to keep that promise to myself?
He waited, no signs of wanting to rush me, and that helped me decide.
“Okay,” I agreed. The blinding smile that stole his face made my heart race for an entirely different reason. “With one condition,” I amended. 
He approached one more step, leaving two feet between us but close enough for me to feel that warm, ocean, and mist scent that had made me want to sniff his coat the day before.
“Anything you want,” he promised.
I took a deep breath. “No more marriage proposals tonight.”
That made him laugh, a charming laugh that made the corners of his eyes crinkle. “No more marriage proposals tonight,” he vowed, stretching a hand towards me.
I took it, expecting the warm and sizzling feeling but still being shocked by it.
His eyes met mine, a slow, shy but pleased smile spreading across his face, and I knew he felt it, too.
I blinked and looked away, breaking the daze before I did something reckless like getting on my tiptoes and kissing him.
And why had I added that ‘tonight’ instead of just banning marriage proposals in general? I wondered as he took us towards the path that led down the small hill.
Ah yes, because I’d lost my mind.
I risked a glance and met his eyes again, finding the same charming smile and echoing it with an awkward one.
Who needs to be reasonable anyway?
