This week has been full of excitement for me. On Saturday, I published my first book, Shattered Dreams on Kindle, B&N and Smashwords. Publishing was quickly followed by sales as my wonderful friends and family snatched up copies of it as soon as it became available. So far, everyone that has purchased the book, has loved it. There are no words to express the pleasure at knowing people actually like what i had written.
As soon as I finished Shattered Dreams, I started on book 2, Broken Melody. It’s the story of Cayson and Alexandria (Zandria) and the almost impossible odds they have to over come to be together. It has been a hard book to write but I’m really quite happy with it. It’s now in the hands of my beta readers and grammar editor!
Following is an except from Broken Melody: I hope you enjoy!
~~~~~~~~~~~EXCERPT FROM BROKEN MELODY~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A single beam of sunlight fell across her face, pulling her out of the grasp of sleep. Blinking, she started to stretch but stopped when she realized there was something warm pressed up against her back. She grinned and finished before turning over.
“Good morning, love.”
Cayson’s gorgeous face was just a couple of inches from hers. With big beautiful green eyes that never failed to make her catch her breath, he captured her chin in his strong fingers and gently stroked her bottom lip. “So beautiful,” he murmured softly and every nerve in her body jingled at his words. Leaning in, he pressed his lips to hers and kissed her tenderly, running his lip along the seam until hers parted slowly. The kiss deepened, causing an ache in her belly that screamed for more. When he finally pulled away, she panted from the intensity. His eyes never left her face, drinking in her features like a starving man presented with a feast. Her toes curled in happiness. He pulled her back to him and held her close; her face pressed to his chest, her lips hovered above his mark – their mark. It was so overwhelming she didn’t know if she could continue to breath being so close to him.
“How about some breakfast,” she whispered softly, her breath caressing his skin.
He groaned and tightened his arms around her. “I have all I need right here.” He kissed her head and nuzzled the blond tresses. “It feels like a dream.”
She blinked. “I.. I didn’t have any nightmares last night.” She raised her head and looked at him. “For the first time in I don’t know how long, there were no nightmares.”
“Let that be a lesson to you. You belong with me and I’ll always keep the nightmares away.” He chuckled and she felt the pleasured rumble in his chest. Both he and his wolf were satisfied at the moment. She didn’t know why they were, but for some crazy reason, his wolf didn’t seem to mind that she didn’t have one of her own. Maybe it was time to let someone else deal with the nightmares. She sighed happily and laid her head back on his chest. In his arms she could almost forget. Almost.
