Welcome to week 88th week of My Sexy Saturday This week’s theme is Sexy’s Got You, Babe and it was related back to the song, I Got You Babe. And I’ve got to admit…I’ve got nothing…LOL! The reason I say this is because what this means to me is that it’s all about a couple who have been there for each other practically forever. Through thick and thin. Since they first laid eyes on each other at a very young age. Think Braveheart or 13 Going On 30 type movies. Things Friends.
First, let me remind you not to forget to my Monday’s Austria Scoop and Tuesday’s My So-Called Writing Live where I talk about the limos and tiaras. Not really but it does sound good. Remember, the more comments you make, the more you’re entered into my monthly drawing for a $25 gift certificate to the ebook retailer of your choice. If you don’t comment, you can’t win…it’s that simple. Enough about the blog…onto the good stuff!
Like I said, I don’t really have anything that fits my idea of this theme. So, I thought I’d go for a work-in-progress that is so new, I haven’t told anyone about it. Well, that’s not quite true, I’ve talked about it a lot…just not here...at least not much. It even has its own website because I love the storyline so much. Now, these characters have known each other for a long time. The hero just feels that he can’t care for the heroine, at least not in the way he really wants. It takes positively years for him to realize he can make a real difference in her life by loving her. Even I don’t know when that’s going to happen since the series is still unfolding in my mind.
It’s an urban fantasy and the very first thing to tell you that it has the presence of magic. And ghosts…did I mention the hero is one? Anyway, here’s an exclusive look at seven paragraphs from The JR Chronicles’ first book, Angels and Demons. There’s also short stories and diaries to go with this one. You can find out more about this series at www.thejrchronicles.com and please be kind as I’m still putting the website together but I promise you’ll love it once it’s all there.
Here’s my seven unedited paragraphs from Angels and Demons:
I sidled up to him. “You’ll always be with me. You have always been with me. Doesn’t that count for something?”
He gazed down at me, his eyes soft and contemplative. “I know what you’re trying to do.”
“You do?” I questioned, acting as nonchalant as one could possibly act. I’d always tried to convince Jasper that the friends with benefits thing would work really well for us. After all, it wasn’t like we could truly be there for each other in a forever kind of way.
His forefinger moved down the length of my nose and tapped the end. “You have tried to manipulate me since you were old enough to know and understand what I am. Some had very disastrous results if I recall.” He lifted his brow and looked at me pointedly.
I felt my cheeks grow pink recalling a few of those moments. Another horrid thing left over from my childhood. “Fine, be that way.” I huffed and sat in the nearest chair with arms folded over my chest. I could glare at him all day and it wouldn’t matter. Sex with him would be hard to get. And my body craved what it couldn’t have. So I pouted.
His deep laughter filled the kitchen, its sound sliding over me like a well-worn pair of jeans. “You have the same adorable look as when you were two.”
A rumbled started low in my throat. Now I was really going to kill him. I didn’t know if I should have an ewww moment or a yuck one for wanting to do it with a nearly hundred and sixty year old man. Rather ghost – uh – man-ghost. Whatever. My mind was seething as I tried to dampen my anger. I hated it when I was horny.
This book is the first in a series of books about Serenity Donovan and Jasper Ryan, along with some big secondary human characters including a variety of non-human ones. The books start six years after the death of her parents and her being alone to do the job of paranormal protector. It’s a big series with a lot of words. The hope is to have book one published in January 2016. Right now, I’m working on the back story via short stories and diaries, most of which will be reader exclusives if you get in on the ground floor. Again, watch the website as items become available.
