Hope's Deceit eBook

Blurb:

Everything has changed—people, my life—no one and nothing is as it seems. With each new threat, the idea of normal slips farther beyond my reach.

A relationship with Blain is everything Trinity has ever wished for—even before she realized she wanted it, but after the near fatal attack with Melia, something changes. The connection that binds them shifts and a dark force threatens to wedge the two apart. Trinity’s only hope for the life she craves is stopping Melia and her Immortal Rogues.

But fate always has an ulterior plan.

As Trinity’s eighteenth birthday draws near, more abilities manifest. But controlling them is a problem. During an emergency Watcher meeting, some question if Trinity is strong enough to carry out the task she is fated to uphold.

Secrets are revealed, and lives are lost. Melia has plans to awaken an ancient god whose wrath—if released—is sure to create more devastation than Pandora. As new threats surface, fear spreads. Fighting to keep the people Trinity cares for safe may be more than she can handle.

In the end, light may not be enough to outshine the darkness.

Born and currently residing in Midland, Texas, Angela shuffles three busy children (not including her husband) all over the place. She works in a busy pediatric doctor’s office as a nurse during the day and writes at night. She is addicted to coffee–who isn’t? And firmly believes chocolate can fix all–especially chocolate ice cream. She laughs a lot, often at herself and is willing to try anything once (she thinks). When Angela isn’t rushing kids around, working or writing, she’s reading. Other than life experience, Angela turns to a wide variety of music to help spark her creative juices. She loves to dance and sing though her kids often beg her not to.

❤ Excerpt ❤

Waking up every morning to Blain and his skillful, mind-blowing kisses definitely made starting the day easier. Those lips of his had a way of making me forget the outside world. His clean cotton and fresh-out-of-the-shower scent clung to him like static, and I couldn’t get enough. The feeling of comfort and safety while wrapped in his arms enveloped me, and the terrible images that startled me awake earlier faded away.

Melia being a Rogue and nearly killing me was frightening. But seeing the black orb attack Blain was a whole new level of terrifying. He seemed okay, though. God, I hoped he was okay.

Blain inched back, definitely far enough to see redness spread across my face, and grinned. His stare, the desire and need held there, made my pulse race. “God, you’re beautiful,” he said, stroking a thumb across my cheek.

His tender touch burned through me. The familiar buzz danced along my skin, and the colors from our power–white and gold– followed the sweet caress.

“This is my favorite part, the pink across your cheeks and knowing I put it there.”

I smiled. “Mine is definitely your lips.”

In turn, they kicked up in a sinful smile. The single butterfly in my stomach multiplied into a swarm. The clear blue in his eyes darkened, and he brought his mouth over mine.

Blain’s kiss started nice and slow. His hand slid down my side, finding the edge of my shirt, along with a bundle of feelings I shouldn’t be exploring just yet.
My heart thudded in a staccato-style rhythm. More heat rushed over my skin like a furnace.

I didn’t want to stop. Didn’t want to think about what Melia’s next move may be. Silently, I wished that her army of Rogues, and all the other obstacles in our way, would disappear.

We’d almost lost each other during the near-fatal fight with Melia. Death gave a person a sense of perspective, and living in the moment, with Blain, was the only place I wanted to be.

“Stop worrying,” Blain said against my lips, then pulled away. “Right now is about me making up for being a jerk, and for not doing more of this sooner.”

I wanted to let it go. So bad, but the spinning wheel of thoughts in my brain refused to slow down. “What if Melia sends her Rogues after us? We should probably get a few workouts in, so I’m better prepared.” A spike of terror tugged at my insides.

“You’re right, we need to get you better prepared. But first I need to do a full body inspection. Make sure all your parts are workable,” he said, pressing his lower half into me.

Before I could reply, he skimmed his tongue across my lower lip, dissolving whatever smartass comment was about to come out.

I granted him access, and the worry of Melia’s attack faded. A clear image of Blain filtered in–the sexy, lone-dimpled grin he’d given me over a dozen times. Private moments between us were few. Losing myself with Blain… his touch, his lips, his everything, turned my bones to mush.

If only the bliss could’ve lasted longer.

The somber memory of yesterday, Blain’s life nearly lost, all still too real. The awareness created an empty pit in my stomach. Within seconds, the daydreamed effects of us together and safe shattered.

My body stiffened. Thank goodness Morpheus barged in before Blain caught on that something was wrong.

“Knock, knock.”

Blain’s wandering hand on my stomach froze, and his lips stopped moving. Resting his forehead against mine, a growling sound deep in his throat emerged. “I should’ve let you take him out,” he said, frustrated.

I smiled. Regardless of what was going on, knowing the effect I had over Blain kinda rocked. Strike that, it totally kicked ass.

Blain sighed. “Please tell me the reason you’re in my room is because you’ve found Melia and destroyed her. I’d really like to get back to spending time with my girlfriend.”

Reviews, Books News, Giveaways, and a Smile :)

Okay, I’ve been in my cave editing and writing, and looks like I’ll be there until the end of June. But that’s good news, guys! Means I’m almost finished with three projects! 🙂 Speaking of, remember that secret project I mentioned a while back? Well, it has a title… ready to hear it? Gypsy Love! Fellow author Lynn Vroman and I collaborated and came up with a great story we hope to share with you all soon. There’s more, Gypsy Love is part of something bigger, but those details are still under construction. Should have more to share soon! However, I’ll leave you with a teaser. Enjoy ❤

Now on to my 5 Alien Star review of Adrenaline by Sunniva Dee!

Holy shit this book is amazing! Sunniva totally outdid herself with Adrenaline! This story is golden! I mean you feel so much: Passion, Raw Emotion, Humor, Sadness, and Love. Man, love and heartache drips from every page! Cam is playful and totally reminds me of a big teddy bear. He’s not extreme sports, like jumps without thinking. He scared the crap out of my a few times. Ingela is so freaking funny! She’s from Sweden and her English slang is so off at times you can’t help but laugh your ass off. Together these two steam up the page. Their chemistry is off the charts, but so is Ingela and Bo…. Enter another hottie! There isn’t really a love-triangle here, but, um, yeah. I can’t give anymore details or it’ll give the entire book away. Sorry, charlie 😉 You experience so many highs and lows, but it’s worth every bit of your time.

So I always relate my stories with songs, and two came to mind while reading Adrenaline: Florida Georgia Line’s Sipping On Fire (Cam’s song) and Taylor Swift’s Style (Bo’s song)! I’ve added each video below ❤

CAMERON

Life’s the shit!
Chicks squeal over how wild and yummy I am, play their silly games trying to tie me down. But I’m free as a bird, doing what makes life life: kicking extreme-sport-ass!

I base jump, snowboard, bungee jump. I do anything for the rush.

Then, Ingela blows into town for college—a cool Swedish blast of trouble. Foulmouthed and runway-gorgeous, the girl seeps in like poison and melts the freaking brain.

To Ingela I am what chicks were to me: pastime, leisure, entertainment, pleasure. She’s killing me, and I’m digging it. There’s a new rush in town! Yeah, I hunt down my highs, and now the chase is on. I’ll catch her soon enough, just, what’s the deal with her ex?

Florida Georgia Line’s Sippin’ On Fire

Firm breasts Adrenaline teaser

BO

With Ingela, sex is a dance. A slow tango where skin flows over skin. It is slick readiness, a quiet welcome. It’s smooth, warm, right, and all wrong.

On and off. On and off. Again, she’s wrecked with grief. It’s a reminder of how I destroy her, how crushed relationships shouldn’t be revived.

We’ve done this for years, now, but clearly we’re in for more.

Taylor Swift’s Style

Secret Project and Reading News

Secret Project and Reading News

Okay, I have a secret project a friend and I have been working on and it is DONE! OMG, I can’t believe we did it, which is reason for my being absent last week. I’ve also finished reading a few books and started another: Summer Confessions, Adrenaline, Love Always, Damian, Fractured Energy and just started Sublime Wreckage. Reviews to come soon 🙂

This weekend I’ll be in Dallas, TX at… wait for it… wait… the AMC awards! Holy crap am I excited. Not only will my husband and I enjoy two nights of concerts with the awards show following on Sunday, but we’ll get to spend it ALONE without kiddos. We’ve NEVER done this. I feel like we’re teenagers or something. Crazy! The kids are mad that Mom and Dad get to watch Blake Shelton live. My girls have begged me to leave their dad with their brother so they could go instead… so not happening. I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures while there! Eeeeeeeek!

Book News

I don’t have a definitive date, but the word is that HD2 will release sometime in September. Holy crap, right! I can’t wait, I mean like I’m so freaking excited to get this to y’all. In case you missed the short (not approved by editors) teaser on FB, here it is again.

“You wouldn’t need luck if you had me with you.”
His smile fell and his eyes clouded with anger. “I don’t have time to argue now. Just… please.” He closed his eyes. “Morpheus, keep her safe.”
“Sure thing, sugar plum.”
I whipped around and glare at the big lug then turned back to Blain. “So I’m back to being babysat, huh?”
Blain invaded every boundary and kissed me, but way too fast, he broke away and sped out the door. In a flash he was gone.

~Hope’s Deceit (The Fated #2)

So, what’d y’all think? I didn’t ask if I could share, but after going over this section, I just HAD to 😉 Lot’s of steamy things happen when Blain returns.

Hope's Decree eBook

When everything else is lost, there is always hope.

While most teens want an epic senior year, Trinity Whitebone hoped for a normal one. Being seventeen was hard enough. Having the emotions of everyone around you in your head made life more than a little difficult.

Until Blain Heros enrolled.

He screamed hot-god in jeans with just his walk. His intense stare warmed her skin like a thousand suns. Unfortunately, his interest in her seemed to run from blazing to freezing in the span of moments and left her nothing but confused. She could deal with things not being normal, but when life goes from strange to dangerous…

Trinity is the direct descendant of Pandora and fated to rectify the terrors released into the world by her curious ancestor. With powers she didn’t know existed and abilities she never wanted, Trinity tries to walk away from everything her life had become. She thought she could turn her back on her fate, until a band of rogue immortals discover who she is and will do whatever it takes to control her powers. Trinity is left with one decision…Embrace fate or die trying.

Book News & More!

Hey! I really suck at keeping everyone informed about, well, everything. So very sorry! Let’s catch up. Addiction (Distraction, #2) is set to release December 9, 2014. That also happens to be my youngest daughters birthday, so it’s a bit special for me. Gosh, they freaking grow up so fast! Geesh O_O

Anyway, Addiction picks up where Distraction ends. I’ve spoken with many of you about the way the first book ended. I know you wanted more and I’m hoping Addiction will satisfy what you felt was missing. Lots of stuff happens in this book! I’m currently editing the end now, making sure the story is as awesome as possible.

I’ve been asked how many books will be in the series, and the answer is 4. Originally Tristan and Elle had three books with a novella featuring Alyssa. However, Addiction threw a wrench in my plans.  I’ve added a surprise with Addiction and I can’t wait to share it with you! Here’s the list of books in order.

DISTRACTION

Distraction

ADDICTION

Addiction-sm

INTERCEPTION

 

ALYSSA’S BOOK (Untitled)

 

FINAL BOOK

 

Hope’s Deceit! I’m really, really, REALLY sorry! I know I’ve put Blain, Trinity and the rest of the gang on hold for way too long. I wanted to get Addiction finished so I could spend all my energy on these characters. HD2 is a bit more than half way written, so my new goal is to have it finished by THANKSGIVING! Which isn’t too far way (now I’m hungry). As for the number of books in The Fated series, I don’t know. I’ve planned for three the entire time, but you never know what may happen between book two and book three. Here’s a list of books, in order.

Writing Process Blog Tour

The wonderful Claudia Whitsitt invited me to join this fun blog tour: My Writing Process. I’m super excited to give you a tour inside my head, but first let’s learn a bit about Claudia. Writing from crazy personal experience, Claudia’s written a string of fabulous mystery romance novels: The Samantha Series: IDENTITY ISSUES, INTIMACY ISSUES, and INTERNAL ISSUES. Word is, another novel, THE WRONG GUY is to hit shelves soon! Exciting stuff going on, so be sure to check out her blog: http://www.claudiawhitsitt.com.

What am I working on?

Not going crazy? Just kidding, well, kind of… Seriously though, I’ve a new series slated to come out this summer. DISTRACTION is a New Adult Contemporary Romance. I’m super excited to get Distraction out to readers! Unfortunately, this meant Hope’s Deceit (The Fated, #2)  has been on the back burner, but the story is coming along nicely. I’m hoping to finish HD2 early this summer! *Encouraging messages are always welcome 😉 *

 

How does my work differ from others of its genre?

Hope’s Decree is Young Adult, Paranormal Romance dealing with Greek mythology. Sounds like every other YA PNR out there, right? Or perhaps not… I really wanted something fresh and chose Pandora’s Box. Not too many stories expand on this particular myth. Hope’s Decree is an extension of Pandora’s Box; HD more or less tells what happened after Pandora released a ton of bad juju on mortals. Mix in high school drama, smexy Watcher(s) and bad-ass Rogues, a destiny to fulfill, falling in love and you’ve got one hell of a story.  DISTRACTION is about going after what you want. Taking your own path instead of the one chosen for you. I LOVE Distraction, like so hard. Born and raised in TEXAS, football is a big deal and so Distraction was born. HD took 3 years to finish and Distraction took 2 years. Woohoo, I’m getting faster, eh. O_O *head —> desk*

 

Why do I write what I do?

I write romance and will always write the gushy stuff, because I’m a hopeless romantic. My poor husband, nah, he’s pretty good. Aside from writing romance, I love writing angst, push-pull types of relationships. Why? Because life is about the up’s and down, and coming out better for your struggles in the end. Not everything in life works out the way you plan. You fall, pick yourself back up, and start over. I’m a big supporter in women finding who they are on their own, falling in love but not losing the person they are due to a relationship. Instead, both people work together as equal parts of a whole. <~ I told you, gushy stuff.

 

How does your writing process work?

I have to work with music and I’m a bit superstitious. Like, if I have an idea about what’ll happen next and a song from that particular WIP’s playlist comes on the radio, I then run with my idea. I’m weird like that. I can write just about anywhere. I have three kiddos (not including husband) so I’m used to noise and chaos they provide. I have a few different beverages while I work: coffee, water and sometimes a glass of wine for the emotional scenes. I’m a fly by the pants type of chick. Ideas flow and I write, but I can’t jump to the end. I have to write in order which really sucks sometimes.

Coming up next week:
