Book Blurb: Witch Devotions
With Trent gone, Faith, the last witch in the world, feels she cannot go on without him. The pain grows so intense that she shuts out her friends and loved ones to be alone, unsure of what to think about the paranormal world anymore. But when on a trip to see Gordon she realizes what she can do to make the pain go away. A spell.
The spell ends up back firing and Faith has now forgotten the past six months. All the memories of vampires, werewolves, and her magical training have vanished. And the first to find her is Louis who comes to whisk her away and change the course of her life forever.
Webs of lies and deceit have Faith feeling powerless and so scared that when Louis gives her the option of becoming a slayer she takes it, hoping to get revenge on the race she believes stole the past six months of her life away. With the Goddess Circe interfering, Lilith still missing and Faith unable to remember Trent, no one knows what will happen next!
However, when a stranger enters her life bringing with him secrets to her missing memories, Faith can no longer trust those around her and must figure out for herself who is good and who is evil, the world of vampires and werewolves or that of slayers. The coin is still up in the air and Faith must make a choice of where her devotions lie.
Book 3: Witch Devotions
Developing New Characters
I love writing sex. A show of hands please, who likes a good sex scene in the book you’re reading? Oh wow. Maybe I should of asked who doesn’t!
Writing sex in PNR compared to erotica is two different conquests (my word of the day hehe). With Erotica there are only the boundaries of the author (and/or publisher) set for how explicit and naughty I can be.
For instance, I won’t write rape scenes. Just can’t do it. I think sex is beautiful and something that should be consensual. However, tying up a character and blind folding them? I’m on it! Literally sometimes.
But guess what I love just as much?
I love developing a new character that is different from any other I have before and just so perfect for the scene that they are going to need another appearance in another book. Which is what I am doing with Sully (Sultras) from Demon Protection Plan (a novella in the anthology: The Sexiest Time of the Year: Erotic Encounters at the Yule Season). The story is from his POV and he is the main character in the new story From Demons, With Lust being published by Sizzler Editions.
On a side note, how awesome of a title is that? I fell in love when I came up with it.
And it goes with the story so well
because it is all about lust. We are talking about demons here and everything.
With all this said, I would love to show you an excerpt from my new novella and introduce a new character, Serena, who will be in the fourth book in The Last Witch Series, Demonic Charms (coming out 2013). This chick is going to give Faith a run for her money when it comes to Trent! I’ll tell you that much!
Excerpt From Demons, With Lust:
“Don’t flatter yourself, like I said at the beginning, I was bored.” With a hand on the railing and the other on her drink, I felt her stare out of the corner of her eye. “So what is it?”
Chest heaving with the breath I took in I put my arms over the edge as I cupped my drink and leaned forward. “Do you know anything about bonds?”
“Human or demon bonds?”
That was an intriguing thought. Kasidy was classified as both so it might not be down to a science when it came to her. “Let’s start with demons.”
With a lingering suspicion she puckered her lips before making a smacking sound with her tongue. “Because demons are normally born as demons, and not at some point a human, they are incapable of bonding for life the same way vampires and humans do. As demons we are not born with the ability or knowledge of love, the closest emotion being that of lust. However, we do have an innate talent for protecting that which we believe to be our property. Do you see where the difference lies?”
“People who fall in love to create that strong bond don’t see the one they love as property?”
“Bingo, baby.” She pointed her finger at me like a gun and winked at me.
I swirled the liquid around my ice filled glass. “What do you find more important to you, as a demon, power or a lust filled bond?”
Her tiny giggle made me shiver from the thoughts of passionate nights we had spent in each other’s beds. The way she ran her tits up and down my shaft was more than most men of any species could handle. “That is a good question. For me, it is all about the lust. That is only because I don’t care about power. As long as I am not a slave to someone I can handle taking some orders.”
“So you have proven more than once.” My beaming smile was met with the taste of sultry erotic pleasure seeping from her pores.
“Would your mind be on me or this chicky you have this bonding hoopla for?” While cocking a hip and placing her hand on her waist Serena took a sip of her drink.
I wasn’t positive why she would care and it bothered me that she asked. “How’s Trent doing?” I sucked on the side of my cheek before chugging the rest of my scotch. Trent being the vampire she had been infatuated with since the eighteen hundreds was a sore subject, but I couldn’t help throwing it in her face after the comment she made.
Gawking at me, she traced her tongue across the front of her teeth, hip still cocked. “In New York from what I hear. I don’t care.” Waving a hand she set her sights back to the ocean view.
I chuckled at her dismissive state that was an obvious ruse turned caper after the scheme wasn’t practical to use. “Why bother with power when lust is around the corner?” I took in the whole idea as we stood together in silence.
“Then again, you have always hated the idea of being ordered around. I can see why the thought of authority entices you more. But maybe you should take one thought into consideration.”
Tonya: She's definitely a feisty character to be reckoned with! Good luck on the books and the series. You've got plenty to keep you busy and your readers downloading!
