#Vampire Reborn from The Calling is Reborn #TeaserTuesday

Today’s Teaser Tuesday is a look at VAMPIRE REBORN from THE CALLING IS REBORN Vampire Novel Series. I just love exploring where FBI Agent Diana Reyes and vampire Ryder Latimer are going in their relationship and I hope you’re enjoying it as well. I’ll shortly have DARE TO LOVE, the next installment in the series, up for you and will be working on FIGHT FOR LOVE, the next step in Diana and Ryder’s story, for late 2017.

Here’s a little teaser from VAMPIRE REBORN.

Teaser

Although his vampire blood called on him to rest during the day, Ryder regularly fought that need in his desire to be more human. To share time with Diana the way normal couples did. He had worked at his desk in the morning, checking on his various investments, and now the two of them were in the gym, working out.

Ryder moved through the steps in the kata, Diana beside him, shifting in unison.

A left turn to face forward followed by a low block with the left hand.

A step ahead with a sharp right-handed punch.

A quick whirl and back to the front for another low block.

They glided, pushed forward and back, almost as if in a ballet.

Pivot, forward, punch, and then retreat.

An upper cut followed by a drop of the hands to the hips with another one hundred eighty degree turn and a double high block.

From the corner of his eye, he measured Diana’s movements and strength since he hadn’t been the only one who had almost lost his life weeks earlier.

Not that you could tell from her fluid and powerful movements. There wasn’t a hint of hesitation or fragility to attest to the fact that his wife had not only been on death’s door, but that she’d recently given birth. Well, almost nothing. Her warrior’s body wore its lean muscled strength nicely, but the womanly curves were ever more rounded, especially her breasts.

Her command came in his head through their shared connection. Focus.

The warning made him stumble through the final punch and slide of the kata, but he recovered to end it gracefully.

They faced each other and bowed to acknowledge the completion of the exercise.

With the kata finished, she grinned and rolled her eyes. “Men. Show a little tit and it totally throws you off.”

Reaching out, he playfully squeezed her breast and said, “Nothing little about those.”

She slapped at him and he recognized the invitation in her gaze. “Think you can boss me around?” he asked.

“I know I can, remember?”

Yeah, he remembered all right. She’d beaten him more than once during their workouts, but he’d been training hard and this time, he planned on coming out on top. Literally.

“Prove it,” he challenged and put his hands up in a fighting stance.
She arched a brow and her demeanor grew a tad too serious for his taste. “Are you sure?”

“If you’re meaning to ask if I’m up to it – ”

“Are you?” she asked, but raised her hands and braced her legs slightly apart, ready for battle.

Her words stung more than any punch she could have landed. “Don’t patronize me, darlin’. I’m fit enough to protect you and Charlie.”

#ManCandyMonday NFL Player Danny Amendola

Good morning! I hope you all had a great weekend. We had more snow . . . Ugh.

Time to warm you up with some Man Candy! Today’s pick is in honor of STRONGER THAN SIN from the Dangerous Passions Box Set.

Why Danny? Well, in STRONGER THAN SIN the hero, Jesse Bradford, is a football player and Danny is a wide receiver for the New England Patriots. Danny was an undrafted free agent when the Dallas Cowboys picked him up. He then went to the Philadelphia Eagles before being signed by the Patriots.

Gotta love that smile, that face and those muscles! Sigh. I hope I took a little bit of the chill away from you with today’s Man Candy.

#TeaserTuesday STRONGER THAN SIN from the Dangerous Passions Box Set

DP3D_200My contribution to the DANGEROUS PASSIONS box set is my kind of sci fi paranormal romantic suspense STRONGER THAN SIN.

It’s the perfect book for this set since the passion between sexy football player Jesse Bradford and Dr. Liliana Carrera is fraught with danger as Jesse and Liliana fight against the evil black ops group that is threatening their lives and that of Jesse’s sister.

Jesse and Liliana have to be one of my fav couples from all the books I’ve written. There is just something about their deep sense of honor and connection to family that made their relationship more powerful for me somehow.

I hope you thought so, too, if you’ve read the book. If you haven’t, here’s your chance to read it and 11, yes ELEVEN, other awesome stories in the DANGEROUS PASSIONS box set, only 99 cents for a limited time.

And now, a sexy little teaser with Jesse and Liliana.

#FoodieFriday Tex-Mex Dip & Ropa Vieja

Seductive SupernaturalsTall, Dark & ParanormalI am going back to some favorite foods for today’s Foodie Friday! These are two of my favorites and they totally fit the mood of my contributions to the Seductive Supernaturals and Tall, Dark and Paranormal Box sets.

Why you may ask? Well, the Tex-Mex Dip reminds me of the many little Mexican restaurants along the Jersey Shore that inspired the Carrera family restaurant in SINS OF THE FLESH and the other stories in the SIN HUNTERS series.

As for the Ropa Vieja – Cuban Shredded Beef recipe, if you don’t think Ryder knows just what to feed Diana to get her in a good mood, boy are you wrong! Diana loves her Cuban food, especially Ropa Vieja. You may even see a scene or two in the stories from The Calling is Reborn and in VAMPIRE REBORN where Ryder brings Diana a tasty Cuban treat.

I hope you will try out one of these two recipes for yourselves. The Tex-Mex is easy to do and a crowd pleaser. Make it for your next party!

The ropa vieja takes a little bit more time, but served with rice, it’s a perfect dish for a chilly fall or winter day!

#ThrowbackThursday Caridad & Selina SINS OF THE FLESH #FreeRead

As I mentioned yesterday, I’ve re-released SINS OF THE FLESH and please remember, if you bought the print book from Amazon, you can now get the e-book for FREE!

SINS OF THE FLESH (and the other novels in the Sin Hunters series) would not have been possible without my fabulous editors at Grand Central Publishing, Selina McLemore and Latoya Smith. THANK YOU!

This is a photo of Selina and me at the 2012 RT Convention! Selina was a wonderful supporter of my work and if you’re wondering if she inspired the name for Adam’s mom, you’d be totally correct.
