Excerpt:

Blood Ties is a paranormal/shifter/romance story.

Meet K 3 4 G E N – He’s not quite human.

Sweat ran down Keagen’s muscular back as he pressed the female against the wall. His rock-hard body, with perfect proportions and stamina that would outlast a stable of thoroughbred racehorses, was nowhere near to flagging. He’d pounded the woman for the last hour, nonstop. The female on the receiving end of his attention cried herself hoarse more than twenty minutes earlier. She needed to rest, but large hands cupped her ass, supporting her weight, and only when he’d had enough would he let her down.

With the air-con turned up high the smell of fresh sweat and sex hung in the air. Keagen loved to fuck; he had some catching up to do after his sex-starved existence for the first part of his adult life. Puffing out a few quick breaths, he built up his pace. He was ready for a beer and wanted the woman out of his room.

Keagen was tall, muscular, and stronger than most men were, although he wasn’t exactly a man. His genes were human DNA with a hint of animal, courtesy of Solgen Laboratories. It wasn’t common knowledge what the company did, and their labs were all in secret locations. Only their financial backers knew where they were. Who supported them was unclear. Possibly the government, private military organizations, or even wealthy dictators; no one knew. You would not find any documentation about it. It wasn’t legal what they were doing, that’s for sure.

Keagen tracked and hunted escapees and always caught his prey, but just one eluded him, and it pissed him off. Nevertheless, he was closing in, and soon he’d return to base with his prize in tow. Given free reign to come and go as he pleased, Keagen enjoyed the freedom, and as long as he brought in the bounty, all was well. Sometimes out in the field for days or weeks at a time, he upheld contact by phone; a check-in, but he wasn’t worried. Sometimes he needed ‘Keagen’ time. Holed up at his secret hideaway, or a motel, where a steady stream of females frequented his room, he could easily fob off his supervisor. The geneticists made the mistake of giving him just a little too much intelligence. Consequently, his IQ already rivaled some of the top minds in the world, and he was smart enough to hide that fact from his testers.

Grunting and hissing through gritted teeth, Keagen screamed his orgasm as he fucked the flagging woman; those last deep thrusts into her satisfied pussy filling the room with a guttural cry. Throwing his head back, his wet hair slapped against his shoulders. The muscles in his thighs held the female firmly against the wall for a few moments until his hips finally stilled and finished jerking. Catching his breath, he rested his head against the cool plaster before releasing the sighing woman. As she tried to stand her knees buckled, but he quickly scooped her up and laid her on the bed.

Meet Gabriel – Lycan

It was quiet in the smoke-filled bar. Just the gentle humming from the waitress broke the silence. Drew’s was a rundown place where the locals piled in after work. Mostly hanging out for just a few drinks to wind down before heading home, they used it as a stopgap, preparing for more stress from either home life, or a second job. There were the regulars who propped up the bar day and night. Jack, one of the old-timers, spent all his time drooling over the young women as they tended bar. Occasional delivery trucks would hole up in the parking lot and the drivers would drop in for coffee, just to keep from falling asleep on long hauls. Smokey and dark, subdued lighting with wood paneling covering the walls and an unvarnished wooden floor, it was a place to relax and ponder.

Gabriel was a regular and sat at the end of the bar in his usual place. From his vantage point, he could view the entire room. He didn’t have children or work to unwind from but still enjoyed a cool beer. Without turning his head, the washroom and entrance were all visible. He could see everyone come and go with ease. Sitting quietly, he’d listen. Unless someone started the conversation first, he’d barely speak, but take in everything.

The quiet town appealed to Gabriel. Moving here just over a year ago, he settled in easily and found a place to stay. After renovating a cabin just on the edge of town, it gave him the seclusion he desired. He could take a short drive into suburbia and have everything he needed before returning to the solace he preferred. He kept to himself and avoided confrontations. Causing trouble wasn’t in his nature. However, he came over as someone who didn’t take crap and he would let small annoyances slide until he reached a breaking point, then you didn’t want to be around to see the fallout. On a few occasions, Gabriel let people know he wasn’t someone they should fuck with, earning him respect shortly afterward. In sleepy town bars, there’s always someone dropping by to stir up the calm. Stepping in to deal with troublemakers made him the resident bouncer. There was never any exchange of cash; he didn’t need a regular job. He just did it. Drew made sure he never went thirsty and all drinks were on the house for keeping the place brawl-free, which suited Gabriel. The more beer, the better, and he didn’t like having his peace and quiet disturbed; it was a win-win situation.

Watching Lyssa brought out his more human characteristics; he’d not always had those. A year ago, he was nothing more than a caged animal. He tried not to think about the past, but occasionally something would trigger his thoughts.

Taking a mouthful of beer, he watched everyone and everything. Casually watching Jack eye up the sweet piece of ass, he grinned. He’d been close, and was still working on getting closer. Never short of female attention, Gabriel made up for lost time as soon as he broke free from his captors. There wasn’t a huge choice of pussy in Dewburn Falls, but quality, not quantity was the issue here. Lyssa would succumb to him, eventually. Women couldn’t resist him. He was astounded she’d lasted this long; he had a feeling she’d be worth the wait. Continuing his advances and hoping for a victory soon, Lyssa proved an interesting challenge.

He wasn’t sure if it was luck, or fate, that brought him here, but finding two female lycans was a surprise. Taking a drink, he smiled as his thoughts turned to Sally. He’d been in town only two weeks and gotten lucky with her.

One down…

Excerpt

He laughed and it was infectious. Even grubby, my Tommy looked gorgeous.

“What are you doing?”

“Just tinkering, making sure everything is a good as it can be. I’m finishing up now.”

“Don’t finish on my account,” I said, perching myself on a wall. “I’m happy to sit and watch you.”

“You would, too,” he said with a smile. He wiped his hands on the rag that was hanging out of his pocket. Then he kick-started the bike, got off again and leaned over to rev it up. I watched the way his long body stretched over the machine and the way a flick of his wrist produced such a powerful noise.

I went to put the kettle on as Tommy cleaned himself up at the sink. I was now left-handed.

“Would you like some tea?” I asked Iris and Tom who were in the back room chatting.

“Yes, thanks,” she said, speaking for them both as I went back and busied myself.

“What wrong with your arm?” Tommy asked.

“Nothing, why?” I said, feeling self-conscious as I reached for another couple of cups.

“You’re holding it funny.”

“I cracked it on the banister last night,” I admitted, refusing to meet his eyes as I opened the fridge for the milk.

“What do you mean, you cracked it on the banister?”

I wasn’t even going to say that, but an element of truth wouldn’t harm – maybe.

“After the adrenaline of last night, I ran up the stairs and stumbled just as I turned to go on the landing. I went to grab the rail and missed.” He just stared at me. “I wasn’t going to tell you because I knew what you’d think.”

“What do I think?”

“That he did it.”

“And did he?”

New Release of Claire Plaisted’s Double Crossed

Hello all!

Today I want to take a few minutes to give some blog time to a wonderful author and publisher, Claire Plaisted. She has a new book out called Double Crossed, the fifth book in the Garrett Investigations Bureau Series. I figured the best way to talk to you about Claire and her series, was to let her do it in her own words. So without further ado… Claire Plaisted!

******

Hi my name is Claire Plaisted.  I am married with four children and a wonderful life in Rotorua, New Zealand.  I am a Family History Researcher who fell into writing by accident in 2011 while waiting for information for a Family History Book.  It wasn’t Garrett Investigation Bureau (GIB) though will be published next year.

I write many different genres including childrens, young adults, historical, and of course GIB, which has at least another 3 books to be written.  I have published 10 books so far. All are on Kindle and a few are in paperback.

I am also an Indie Publisher for Indie Authors as well as making photo books, family history books, and much more.

Garrett Investigation Bureau Series

The Garrett Investigations Bureau Series was born in 2013 and first published on 7th November 2013.  This was my first offical series.

Double Crossed is the 5th book in the Garrett Investigation Bureau Series though is in fact the 6th book due to the prequel ‘Hidden Agenda,” which is the third book I wrote.  Confused…Yeah I’m good like that.

Double Crossed is about Jones, a man of mystery, who has been around for a long time.  I would call him a Double Agent, but others might call him a Slave serving a Master.

Following him and a team of security and agents though time, torture, the paranormal, and even a cult, to see if his life is worth saving.  Can he be a hero after all?

Cover Reveal for The Solomon Project

Jessica Wren Fiction

Good morning, and I would like to extend an invitation to join me as I launch my second novel, a paranormal dystopian/historical fiction combo called “The Solomon Project.” I started this novel for NaNoWriMo after carrying around the idea for years. I don’t think I’ve ever had more fun writing a book.

The novel revolves around Eddie Ruiz, one of the so-called “solomons” who, under a cruel social experiment called The Solomon Project, is one of the approximately 15% of males spared mandatory sterilization at birth. He is also a medium who can summon the spirits of the dead. When the inevitable consequences of The Project start to surface–jealousy and resentment that divides families, the spread of a deadly disease, and the wicked one-world government’s horrific attempt to hide The Project, Eddie, along with his spiritual guardian Queen Bathsheba, uses his powers as a medium to summon The project’s namesake…
