#WriteWed Secrets of Grand Central Terminal & Dare to Love from TAMING THE VAMPIRE

I’m so excited to have completed another story in The Calling is Reborn Vampire Series, especially this one since I’ve been intrigued with the hero, Vampire Slayer Benjamin, since TO LOVE AND SERVE. I won’t spoil what happens to him in that story, but suffice it to say I’ve been itching to do his story and give him the Happily-Ever-After that he deserves.

This story is actually a first in the series since neither FBI Agent Diana Reyes or Southern Vampire Ryder Latimer appear in the story, although they are mentioned. This novella is complete, but look for the continuation of Benjamin and Rhiannon’s story in FIGHT FOR LOVE, which I hope to have out in early 2017.

As for Grand Central Terminal, many of the scenes in DARE TO LOVE are set in and beneath Grand Central. I just love this building with all its amazing art and secrets. For example, the Whispering Wall just outside the Oyster Bar restaurant. No one knows for sure if it was intentional, but if you stand facing the wall diagonally across from someone and whisper, that other person can hear you clear as day.

Did you know that in the 1940s there were orders to shoot and kill any unauthorized person who tried to enter the area for the generators? Why? Damaging those generators would have crippled troop and supply shipments all across the East Coast. Look for scenes set down there as Rhiannon slowly comes into her Slayer powers and realizes that they come from some very unique places.

There is art everywhere you look in this important transportation hub. Here is some artwork above each of the tracks!

Besides the tracks and commuter areas, a very nice food market was built in what had once been an alley for deliveries to the Oyster Bar. There are many different kinds of shops for produce, cheeses, meats, coffee, baked goods. You name it! We often go there to pick up lunch or ingredients for dinner.

Hope you enjoyed this Write Wednesday look at Grand Central Terminal and DARE TO LOVE from TAMING THE VAMPIRE.

#TeaserTuesday Fight the Shadows #RomanticSuspense

FIGHT THE SHADOWS Romantic suspenseFIGHT THE SHADOWS is part of the Shadow Ops Kindle World by CJ Lyons. CJ has created an amazing concept around the Special Threats Response Team, a group of heroes who go in when no other agency can or will go in. The head of this unique team is Rose Prospero and she is an absolutely fascinating woman. Her second-in-command is Billy Price and he couldn’t be more different from Rose. The one thing they have in common: Their desire to protect their country from harm.

This teaser is from the start of FIGHT THE SHADOWS and you meet Rose and Billy. I loved exploring what’s happening with these characters, but also introducing my own two characters, National Guardsman Patricia Morales and former Marine Rick Sanchez, as new members of the STR team.

Share your wardrobe malfunction & a chat today!

We’ve all had it happen. We’re walking along and POP goes the bra strap. Or at the worst possible moment, that easy-to-undo clasp or hook just doesn’t want to give.

My most embarrassing moment happened one day while I was walking through Grand Central Terminal and my slip fell right off and puddled around my ankles. I had lost weight and clearly the elastic was no longer in any condition to keep that slip up around my waist. So there I am, beige lace and nylon wrapped around my ankles! Worse yet, one of the secretaries from the office was walking right toward me! I don’t even remember how I did it and suspect Houdini would have been proud, but I managed to whip the slip right off and into my briefcase. Whew! If the secretary saw, she didn’t say thankfully.

How about you? On this Fun Friday, share one of your more humorous, embarrassing or even sexy wardrobe malfunctions! Remember, every comment you leave all this month counts as an entry in the May SIN HUNTER HUNTER SHORE SPECIAL CONTEST.

Also, I’m calling All Paranormal Romance Lovers to come visit with the wonderful and amazing Angela Knight and me today at 2 pm EST.

My Christmas Wish List

Visit with me today at the home of Anastasia Pollack, crafts editor and reluctant amateur sleuth (and my good friend Lois Winston!)

I’ll be talking about the one thing that’s on my Christmas wish list and would love to hear what’s on your wish list!

In the meantime, I so love NYC at this time of year. The City has on all its Christmas finest and I’m sharing some pictures that I took on our way to grab some lunch yesterday.

This is an amazing gingerbread house at the new Zabar area in Grand Central Terminal Market.

This is the tree in the lobby of the Chrysler Building. So lovely.

Hoping you all have a lovely weekend! See you all on Monday.
