Consumed Releases in time for the Red, White, and Blue Blog Hop

UPDATE:  Random.org chose a winner from the blog here – congrats to K. Anna Jones!  I’ve emailed you with info.  Thanks to everyone who entered!

So, there’s quite a bit going on today.  First, CONSUMED is out in the wild!  Yes, Katie and Jordan’s story was released today and can be downloaded right now!

Second, I’m part of the Red, White, and Blue Blog hop – how cool is the blog hop button they created?  It’s down below…meow!

Also – I’m over at the Tea and Book Reviews blog today…giving away stuff.  Drop on by!

So to combine everything going on today, I thought I’d celebrate with a quick excerpt of Consumed:

The air thickened, and Jordan rose to full height, a human male standing in the rain.  Nude and enraged. 

Katie shivered.  His eyes glowed in his angular face, revealing the animal present even in human form.  His nose was straight, his cheekbones high and symmetrical, purebred lion embedded in every feature.  While his chest had always been broad, cut definition enhanced more powerful muscles than she remembered.  His narrow waist tapered to…

God.  She would not look lower.

Jordan’s gaze started at her tennis shoes and traveled up her bare legs to the clinging T-shirt.  Fury lined every strong contour in his face.

Awareness slammed desire out of the way.  She took a step back. Okay, running through alleys wearing only a T-shirt might have been a bad idea.  Very bad.  Intuition yelled at her to flee.  No way in hell could she outrun him.  Aiming the gun would be a serious mistake.  She knew it…yet  her hand trembled as she raised the weapon.

His chin lowered.  A stalking predator, he strode forward with measured steps, water sluicing off his hard body. 

Retreat was her only option.  A loose stone tripped her, and she dodged to the side, her back flush to a building.  Thank God the weapon hadn’t gone off.  A second later he trapped her, his abs square against the barrel of the gun, his gaze primal.

Something inside her hissed.  Deep down, beyond humanity, at her very core…a lioness stretched.

The breath caught in her throat.  She stilled.  Searching down deep.  Searching for the animal she used to be.  The animal that had been silenced ten years ago by the virus.  A tingling wandered through her veins, igniting her blood.  An animal sense that she’d missed so very much.  The slumbering cougar awakening in reaction to a male.

And the male was pissed.

    I’m hanging with the in-laws. They have no a/c, I’m melting. I wish this was the cure to losing weight. If it were I probably would have lost about 50 lbs. :)
    Will Consumed be released in print? If so do you know when?

  21. Elaine says:

    I LOVED this book! I have been waiting for this book for soooo long, I’m glad it is finally out! the book did not disappoint and is the best in the series by far! I loved Katie and Jordan’s story! One of the things I really liked about this book was that it had an epilogue, unlike all the others!

    I got this book yesterday and was hooked from the very first page1 I didn’t put the book down until I finished! I loved the hints about what we should be expecting in the next couple of books. I can’t wait to read Kane’s story and am anxiously waiting to see what happens with Jase.

    I think you did a fantastic job with this book! the series only gets better with each new book! I do have one question, (spoiler alert!) will there be a future between Maggie and Terrent? I loved the interaction between these two!

  22. The weekend… pj’s, coffee, my doggy’s, and some good books. I’m such a lazy thing when I have the house to myself. Thanks for the giveaway.

  61. Hello Rebecca,

    Thank you for participating in the Cocked & Loaded, Shootin’ Stars, & Blasting Giveaway Hop.

    What are my plans for this weekend? Well we celebrated the 4th of July of the 5th because my Hubby is a Police Officer, 32 years & still going strong) & the 4th is one of their busiest days. But we always enjoy celebrating with family at our house on the 5th with a cookout & a pool volley ball game…& it’s always the start of my Hubby’s vacation time.

    I would very much appreciate the opportunity to be considered in your very generous giveaway of a signed copy of one Book, either Fated, Claimed, or Hunted. Thank You.

    Take Care & Stay Naughty,
