Hello everyone! I’m taking part in two blog hops this weekend – how fun is that? There’s nothing I like more than an Alpha male–well, except an Alpha male with a dark, brooding past. Wounded heroes are the best!
Provoked releases on November 1st and is up for a pre-order sale right now. So I thought I’d show you a glimpse into Kane Kayrs, a dominant, brilliant, Alpha. Here’s a quick blurb:
Kane grabbed the brandy glasses. Handing Amber one, he retook his seat in the chair. “Drink.”
“Stop being bossy.”
“Sorry.” Slowly, he took a sip, gaze watchful over the rim.
She drank a healthy gulp. How was she supposed to act normal with a sexy vampire studying her? “Stop staring.”
“No.” He licked a drop from his lip.
She fought a groan. The brandy warmed down her throat to her abdomen. Wind whistled outside, lending an intimacy to the fire-lit area inside. Her eyes half-closed in reaction. Tingles set up in her knees—most likely from the mind war she’d just fought. But the confusion came from her reaction to the vampire. “You shouldn’t have kissed me last night.”
“I know,” he agreed softly.
“Why did you?”
“You’re beautiful, sexy, and I want you.” His voice was calm and self-assured.
No game-playing with that man.
She fought to keep her face calm. He said want in present tense. Her body reacted instantly. “That’s surprising. I figured you’d go for some robotic scientist type.”
As people, they couldn’t be more different. He was overeducated. She . . . not so much. “I’m a pacifist.”
He gestured for her to finish her drink. “Let’s talk about that.”
She downed the rest of the brandy, a delicious heat sliding through her body. “There’s nothing to talk about.”
He tipped back his head and drank his brandy, the movement both masculine and sexy. Setting the sifter on the side table, he leaned forward, elbows on his knees. “I’ve been thinking.”
“That’s a new one.” She snorted.
Vampires had sexy grins. Who knew?
Kane’s grin widened. “So, I have a solution for our dilemma. You’re a pacifist who shouldn’t fight. I am a closet empath who needs to find my brother.”
The guy probably didn’t confess that fact to many people. She smiled, more warmth coming from his trust than from the alcohol. “What’s a closet empath?”
“Somebody who has fought for years to squash down the ability to read emotions from other people.” He sighed, stretching his neck. “Though, I can also attack with feelings sometimes. The ability can distract an enemy at the right moment, although I’d rather just use my brain.”
“There’s nothing wrong with feeling things, Kane.”
He shrugged. “Not the point.”
“What is the point?” Besides that fact that she was in an intimate setting alone for an entire night with the sexiest man she’d ever met in real life.
“The point is that there is a very simple answer to our dilemma.” His eyes darkened and his strong jaw set. “Mate me.”
So, here are the links if you’d like to pre-order Provoked and be one of the first to download it:
Also, here are the links to get back on the blog hops – make sure you hit the one you’ve been on! (Feel free to hop on board the other one when you’re finished. There are tons of great prizes in both. They’re both scheduled to actually start the 19th) Speaking of prices, in addition to the ones being given from me on the hops, I’m also giving away signed copies of Fated, Claimed, and Hunted to ONE randomly chosen commenter from my blog here. So drop me a comment. Do you have any plans for halloween?
