Blurb

The moment I met Davide Valenti, I wanted him.

He was alluring in the kind of way that makes good girls like me want to break all the rules.

So I did. I broke my rules for him, and in turn, he gave me what I craved.

Hearts and Flowers.

Yet I wanted more. I wanted to know him, claim him the same way he had claimed me. But you can’t claim that which doesn’t exist. A mirage. A man who showed me one face while showing the world another. A complicated man. A dangerous man.

Now I’m caught up in his world. Trapped under all that is dark and dangerous. From hearts and flowers to guns and knives.

I want out. But I fear it’s too late.

EXCERPT –

“Cassandra,” the strange man called, his voice deep and melodic at the same time. My heart skipped a beat when I heard my name on his lips. “I am so glad you’re finally here.” He walked toward me, all grace and easiness, and I had to remind myself to breathe, chiding myself for being nervous about a strange man in a dream.

“Do I know you?” I asked as he stopped in front of me and smiled down at me familiarly. I frowned at him. He was taller than I was, my head not quite reaching his chin, and I had to look up at him, resisting the urge to stretch onto my toes to get a better look at his eyes.

“Not yet,” he admitted, “but I have been waiting for you nonetheless. My name is Aleksander. I am your Caomhnóir.”

“My what? What’s a kweevrore?” I stumbled over the unfamiliar word, trying to mimic the way it had rolled off his tongue.

“Your Caomhnóir. Like a guardian or protector,” he said, a ghost of a smile playing at the corners of his mouth from the way I’d tested out the unfamiliar word.

“And what is it exactly you think you are guarding me from?” I asked, my eyes glancing suspiciously over the trees as the branches rustled with a breeze.

“I am not your guard, Cassandra.” He smirked at me as if the thought of guarding me was somehow amusing. “I am your guardian, your mentor. I am here to guide you during your time here in Otherworld.” He spread his arms wide and gestured to the lush landscape surrounding us.

I scowled. “Please don’t call me Cassandra. Only my grandfather calls me Cassandra. “

“What would you like to be called then?”

“Call me Cassie,” I said. “What is Otherworld?”

“All right then, Cassie. It’s hard to describe in mortal terms, but I will try,” he said with a grin, reaching out and taking my hand in his.

I inhaled sharply when his hand touched mine. My palm tingled strangely, and a strange heat passed briefly between us. I wondered if he had felt it as well. He caught my gaze, his startled green eyes mirroring my own before he looked down at our hands, studying them.

I was sure he had felt that sizzle too. I was starting to get curious. I couldn’t recall ever actually feeling in my dreams before. Unless you counted my nightmares. Somehow I always felt those as if they were real. Was this a nightmare?

When I thought about it, I realized that I shouldn’t be able to taste the salt in the air or smell the woodsy aroma of the trees around us. I frowned with confusion. This dream was far too real for my taste, and it was starting to make my head hurt.

“The Otherworld is the land of the Fae,” Aleksander explained patiently. He tucked my arm under his, turning and leading me down the beach. The waves swept gently up the beach and over my feet, deliciously warm and again bothering me because I knew that I shouldn’t be able to feel the warmth.

“The Fae? You mean like faeries?” I asked finally, trying not to think too much about how disturbingly real it all was even as I relished the feeling of the warm water and the sand. It had been so long since I had seen the ocean, and strange as this all was, I wasn’t in that dark clearing sniveling and waiting to be killed.

“The Fae are…well, for lack of a better term, yes, Faeries. We are what is left of the guardians of the realms of dreams.”

He must have seen the look of confusion on my face because he patted my hand reassuringly, drawing me closer to his side as he led me across the glittering sand. My breath caught in my throat. Under any other circumstance, strolling down a beautiful beach hand in hand with a gorgeous man would be happy dream. Instead, I was overwhelmed and felt panic starting to build within me. My heart beat rapidly and my breath sped up as if adrenaline were beginning to flow.

“This place is our home. It lies outside of the mortal realm, on a different plane of existence, but one that runs parallel to it. I know that probably doesn’t make any sense to you yet, but it will with time.”

“Are you seriously trying to tell me that I’m in some kind of alternate dimension here?” I asked, frustrated and confused. “Oh man, I’ve got to lay off the Supernatural reruns before bed.”

A different realm of existence? Those cheap grocery store cakes were off the shopping list permanently. All those preservatives had probably fried my brain. Becca was right. It was time to go organic. Science fiction and junk food obviously had dire consequences when combined.

“You are a Síofra,” he said, ignoring my outburst.

“Sheefra?” I repeated, stumbling over the unfamiliar word. What weird language was he speaking?

He stopped and turned to face me so quickly that I walked into him. I could feel his breath on my cheeks as he looked down at me, bringing his hands to my upper arms and holding them gently as if bracing me for something important.

“You, Cassandra Matthews, are a changeling.”

 CHARACTER BIO

Cassie Marshall is a nineteen year old from Northern California.  She grew up the middle child of an accountant and a homemaker.  She has an older brother Elliott who is a soldier in the US Army stationed in Kentucky, and a younger sister , Brittany, who still lives at home. She’s very attached to her family and has a hard time being away from them for the first time.

 She’s a freshman at Chico State University – major undecided- where she rooms with her childhood best friend Becca who she generally lets run her life for her.   Cassie is a fan of science fiction, especially Doctor Who (she pines for Christopher Eccleston) and Dragonball Z, and believes that there isn’t anything in the world that can’t be cured with ice cream and the Winchester Brothers.

Dom Black is a twenty year-old college student also at Chico State University.  He is a fan of Celtic Tattoos, pretty girls with green eyes and is the self-declared culinary master of all things to do with Ramen Noodle Soup.  He’s not particularly close to his family and finds his father domineering and pushy.  He’s enjoying his time away from his family doing his own thing and experiencing all that the world has to offer.   He’s not a fan of bridges, or crazy cat ladies.

 

Aleksander Chase was born in early 1940 at the tale end of the Great Depression to a close knit family in Shreveport, Louisiana.  He has one sister, Anne Marie, to whom he was entirely devoted.  After the tragic loss of his high school sweetheart he sought solace and redemption standing guard over sleeping mortals as a Fae.  Generally serious with a serious hero complex, Aleksander takes his duties as Cassie’s Caomnhior seriously.  Even when that might cost him what he wants most.

 

Rebecca “Becca” Bradshaw is Cassie’s best friend.  The only child of Hannah Miller and Martin Bradshaw, Becca has spent her childhood bouncing between her parent’s homes.  She and Cassie have been best friends since kindergarten when Becca saved Cassie from bullies and shared her sandwich with her.  They’ve been inseparable ever since.  Becca is meticulous about her dietary habits and takes every chance to lecture Cassie about the dangers of gluten and refined sugar.  Unlike Cassie, Becca knows what she wants in life and goes after it.

Wind Chime Cafe (LG-2500 x 1563)

Synopsis: When single mother Annie Malone purchases a quirky Main Street café on Heron Island, she thinks she’s finally turned her dream of opening her own restaurant into a reality. Hearing rumors that a developer is about to build a five-star resort on the sleepy Chesapeake Bay island, she plans to transform the café into a premier upscale bistro. But Navy SEAL, Will Dozier, has no intention of selling his grandparents’ property to a developer. Back on Heron Island for the first time in ten years and secretly struggling with PTSD, Will decides that a fling with the new girl is the perfect way to help him “get his head straight.” The last thing Will expects is to fall in love…with his hometown and with Annie. But Will’s life and career are in San Diego with the SEALs. Can Annie’s love and the healing magic of the island be enough to convince him to stay?

Will drove into town. He felt like a live wire, ragged and fraying around the edges, ready to snap. He hadn’t slept. Again.

He was running on adrenaline now—every sense heightened, every thought twisted and fragmented.

It wouldn’t be the first time. He recognized the feeling. He’d experienced it on enough overseas ops. It had fueled him through Hell Week ten years ago when he’d first joined the SEALs. One of the reasons the instructors pushed them so hard in BUD/S was to see if they could carry out a mission in an exhausted haze.

He knew how to function in this state.

It was all mental.

He just had to get control of his mind.

Marshes and soybean fields gave way to the playing fields of the Heron Island Elementary School. Faded orange soccer nets flanked the flat stretch of grass, and he slowed when he spotted a woman with long red hair sitting alone on the bleachers.

Wasn’t that the woman he’d met last night?

What was she doing at the elementary school?

Unless…

Shit. Did she have a kid?

That would explain why she hadn’t wanted him to come in last night, why she’d kept looking back toward the stairs leading up to the apartment. He tapped his fingers over the steering wheel. Kids complicated things. He didn’t do complicated.

But he wanted to see her.

He’d thought of little else while he’d lain awake last night, staring at the ceiling.

Turning the wheel at the last minute, he steered the SUV into the parking lot. He pulled into a parking spot facing the playing fields and cut the engine. Screw it. He had six weeks to figure out how to un-complicate things.

He climbed out of the driver’s seat and walked across the grass to where she sat. When she lifted her gaze, he expected her to say something sarcastic about the chicken tenders she’d given him last night. He wasn’t prepared for the pale face and haunted eyes that stared back at him.

There was nothing uncomplicated about that. “Is everything all right?”

“I’m fine.”

Her hands were wrapped around the bench on either side of her, curled into a death grip. “You don’t look fine.”

“Thanks.”

“No,” Will said, backpedaling. “I mean, you look like you could use someone to talk to.”

“Actually, I’d really like to be alone right now.”

Will paused a few yards away from her. He hadn’t risen to the rank of Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Navy without recognizing that most of the time, when one of his men said they wanted to be alone, what they really needed was someone to talk to. He wouldn’t let one of his men off that easily, and he sure as hell wasn’t leaving Annie alone in the middle of a panic attack. Not until she told him what was wrong.

“Look,” she said after several moments of silence when he made no move to leave. “I just dropped my daughter off for her first day at a new school, and I’m worried about her. I want to stay close by in case she needs me.”

“How old is your daughter?”

“She’s eight.”

Eight? Will’s gaze combed over Annie’s face. She didn’t look old enough to have an eight-year-old daughter. He’d pinned her as twenty-six, twenty-seven at the most. She must have been pretty young when she’d gotten pregnant.

He took a moment to study her. She was wearing a stretchy black top and dark jeans again. She wore her hair long and loose, spilling in red waves over her shoulders. The wind whipped a touch of color back into her cheeks, but her eyes still held a hint of fear.

What was she afraid of?

“You’re not wearing a ring,” Will said, “so I’m guessing the father’s not part of the picture.”

“No.” Annie brushed her hair out of her eyes. “He’s not part of the picture.”

Will wondered if he’d ever been part of the picture. Or if he could have something to do with what she was afraid of. “If your daughter’s eight, shouldn’t you be used to leaving her at school by now?”

“It’s a new school. She doesn’t know anyone here.”

Still, he thought. She seemed pretty shaken up for someone who was just dropping her kid off at school. “What grade is your daughter in?”

“Second.”

“Who’s her teacher?”

“Becca Haddaway.”

Becca? No kidding? “I didn’t know Becca was a teacher.”

“I thought you said you grew up here?”

“I did.” Will rocked back on his heels. “I haven’t been back in a while.”

Annie glanced back up at him, shading her eyes from the sun. “How long is a while?”

“Listen,” Will said, changing the subject, “you look like you could use something to eat, and I bet your daughter doesn’t want you hanging around when she comes out for recess. Let me take you to breakfast.”

Annie shook her head. “I need to stay here.”

“For how long?”

“Until I’m ready.”

“You can’t say no to a fried egg sandwich from The Tackle Box. I’ll even throw in a bottle of orange juice.” He smiled down at her, trying to put her at ease. “We can call it a date.”

“I told you last night. I’m not dating you.”

“Why not?” Will feigned a hurt expression. “Don’t I look dateable?”

“Yes,” she said. “You look perfectly dateable. For someone else.”

“But not you?”

“No. Not me.”

“Why not?”

Annie’s gaze drifted to the brightly colored playground and row of swings near the school. “Because I don’t date.”

Will walked to the bleachers, lowering himself to the bench beside her. “Ever?”

“That’s right.”

“That seems closed-minded.”

“It’s not closed-minded. It’s just easier.”

Will’s eyes widened in mock horror. “What’s easy about not dating?”

“Well, for starters,” she answered, “not having to explain to my daughter where I’m going and who I’m going with.”

“Your daughter’s busy with school right now, so you don’t have to explain anything.”

“But I’d have to tell her later. We don’t keep secrets from each other.”

Will studied her for several moments. “You tell your daughter everything?”

“Yes.”

“Everything?”

“Yes.”

Will leaned in and brushed his lips over hers. Before she could react, before she could do anything, he eased back and winked. “Let me know what she has to say about that.”

{Blog Blitz} Black Hills Blessing by A.C. Wilson

~ Synopsis ~ 
Garrett Johnson is a
sexy cowboy from South Dakota, who curbs any woman’s need for
commitment. His relationships are all about the fun; sex, drinking, and
companionship. If she wants more from him, the game is over and he moves
on. It has been this way since he left his hometown of Hot Springs
after high school graduation. 


Garrett is looking for something,
anything that might take away the monotonous feeling of traveling down
the same dead end path. An argument over the future of his family’s
ranch sends him out into the middle of a snowstorm only to be rescued by
a dark-haired, golden eyed siren. A captivating woman who could change
the game altogether!


Rayne Randall left South Dakota fifteen years
earlier in anger and grief at the tragic loss of her mother. She has
only now returned after the death of her estranged father. There is more
pain and destruction in this place than any other. She has been cursed
to live each day with the understanding that her father killed her
mother.


Rayne wants nothing to do with her family’s ranch. There are
no ties here worth remembering! So why did she have to meet a sinfully
handsome cowboy who would inspire her to dig for the truth? Assuming the
job as her foreman and her friend, Garrett Johnson just might be the
blessing Rayne never thought would come.

~ Amazon ~ Smashwords ~ B&N ~ iTunes ~  ~ Excerpt #1 ~ 

“I think God was punishing me. I don’t deserve to be
loved.” She was so calm as she said the words. There was a weariness in
her voice that spoke eloquently of a woman giving up. She was defeated
and the defeat had hollowed her. No wonder she was angry and closed off.
Garrett wrapped his arms tightly around her, hugging her body into his. 

“You’re so wrong about that, Rayne. You deserve to be loved and
cherished.” His chest felt like there was a heavy weight sitting on it.
His throat closed with emotion.
How could anyone think they weren’t worthy of love?
How could so much
destruction happen to one person?
If Garrett had been in Rayne’s shoes,
he would have raged and struggled just as she had. The mess was coming
to life and he wasn’t certain how to fix any of it.

~ Excerpt #2 ~ 

 How could someone she just met be so in tune to her
mind?
The Cowboy had her melting into his hands and soon she’d be
begging him to do passionate things to her body. Hell, she’d beg to do
unspeakable things to his! Garrett lowered himself to his knees and
instinctively Rayne’s fingers interlaced in his dark hair. He pressed
his lips against her stomach and groaned as her finger nails scraped his
scalp. Feeling that exquisite heat so close to the spot she truly
wanted him, Rayne felt her core flex and clench in demand. 

Holy mother of all that was good! Garrett’s tongue laved just above her
waistband of her pants as his fingertips slid her button free and opened
her pants to reveal the black lace panties she had selected. In the
back of her mind she had hoped he would see them. She leaned fully back
against the wall and her hips thrust forward of their own accord. Every
piece of her body and every inch of her skin begged to be touched. She
felt his knowing grin against the top of her panties. Mentally she
cursed her inability to deny him or better yet, to deny herself.
