Houston Havens – Sinful Surrender (Psychic Menage #1)

Why be tempted by one man’s seduction when you can be loved by three?

Blurb

Sinful SurrenderTop psychic spy Fay Avalon saw too much on her latest mind traveling mission and is now on the run from her post-catastrophic dystopian government, searching for the truth and proof. She escapes but is shot down, landing in the arms of the enemy.

In Drakker and Arlo’s world, women are so rare the men have accepted a polyandrous lifestyle. When the brothers stumble upon Fay unconscious in the wreckage of an aircraft, they are immediately attracted to her. Arlo wants to keep her, but Drakker knows they can’t. They must take her to their brother Logan Abán, leader of their people.

Logan struggles with trusting anyone, even himself. When a beautiful, intelligent, and intriguing woman falls into their laps, his denied desires for intimacy challenge his need to trust the spy. He’s frustrated by romantic Arlo’s claims of her innocence. Even when pragmatic and dominating Drakker defends her as well, Logan refuses to trust his gut.

Can one woman satisfy the diverse desires of three men? Will Logan’s fears be realized by betrayal? Is Fay to be sentenced to death as a spy, suffer a fate worse than death by being returned to her government as a traitor, or will she find a new life and love as the wife of three sexy brothers?

Excerpt

Logan’s silence made her fidget. He ended her suffering when he said, “I’d suggest to the brother outside of her affections to work harder at pleasing the woman he cares about, if he wants to win her heart.” He glanced at Arlo. “I’d suggest his brothers help him out. Perhaps, the brother on the outs and the woman got off on the wrong foot. Maybe neither of them knows how to step around that first awkward meeting to actually see each other for who they really are.”

“Just what I was thinking, bro.” Arlo smiled at Fay. “Tsi ge yu i—I mean, love, I’d like to introduce you to my brother Logan.”

“This is silly—” She felt her stomach flutter as Logan interrupted her with a kiss. She drew her hands up to push him away but stopped in midair when his lips, so warm and soft, pressed against hers again with such tenderness. His mouth moved in a slow, seductive kiss that said he truly wanted her.

He broke away. “It is a pleasure to meet you, my lovely Fay Avalon. May I have this dance with you?”

His tone was deep and sexy.

Her fingers caressed her mouth where his lips had been as she spoke from behind them. “This is crazy.”

Her breasts bounced with each hurried breath she took. She glanced at Arlo. “There isn’t any music. How am I to dance with him?”

Logan stood, scooping her up into his arms as Arlo started singing. “Like this,” he said, cradling her body against his in a way that wouldn’t cause her any pain. He nuzzled her neck then kissed his way up to her ear and whispered, “While we dance, will you play an innocent get to the core of the truth game with me?”

“I’m not good at games.”

“It’s not a physical game. It’s intellectual. It’s a game that allows people to get to know each other fast. However, you have to speak from the heart’s truth. If you can’t speak from the heart, you can’t play. I’ll start.”

Her arms tightened around his neck as Arlo broke into the main chorus of a beautiful ballad. Logan swayed and turned, holding her in his arms. “Fay Avalon, you tantalize me with your loveliness and your amazing strengths. You weaken my will, and that is why I fear you.”

His confession was shockingly honest and real. No man in her world would ever reveal such a truth.

“You can trust me, Logan. I will not betray or lie to you.”

“Ah, but I can’t. I trusted once and was betrayed. People died because I was a fool who believed in honor.” He set her down and tapped at the bridge of her nose. “The game is…you reveal what you feel about the person in front of you.”

“But it’s important to me you understand I will do whatever it takes to prove my word and honor to you.”

“Darlin’. We’re playing a game to get to know each other, not debate or discuss issues. I told you what I thought of you and my reaction to what I was feeling. It’s your turn to tell me what you think of me and your feelings about it.”

He held her in his protective embrace, only her toes touched the ground as he carefully moved her around the fire with his long steps. He carried most of her weight as they moved to Arlo’s song.

She looked into his eyes. It was as if she saw him for the very first time. “I fight my true feelings for you because…”

His penetrating stare coaxed her to tell him why.

“Because, well…because you hold my fate in your hands. You have yet to tell me what my future will be. It’s hard to make plans when I fear I will live as a prisoner in your world. Or worse, I will carry a death sentence over my head to be enforced when all this settles down.”

“I’ll grant you a beautiful future if you tell me you care for me and will forever be true to the clan of Abán.” He held her body against him, moving in time with the song. “Do you want to honor our world and make it yours?” He stopped dancing.

She answered with her heart. “I do. Do you want me here?”

He locked his stormy eyes to hers, his gaze ablaze with passion. “I do.”

Watch the Trailer for Sinful Surrender:

Ghosts Amongst Us by Susan Kronick

I’m very excited to have with us today psychologist and medium Dr. Susan Kronick who has investigated countless ghostly encounters over the years. In her capacity as a paranormal investigator, blessed with the ability to see ghosts, Susan presents some surprising facts and words of wisdom about the spirit world you may not know.

Without further ado, here’s Susan as she discusses the ghosts amongst us!

You probably passed a ghost on the street, and didn’t even know it!

Most people don’t realize that ghosts are always walking among us! Contrary to the belief that they always appear transparent with an ethereal “Casper-like” white glow about them, a spirit can present itself however it chooses. A specter may appear solid and even be warm to the touch. The only way you may discover you had an encounter with a ghost, is if the spirit were to suddenly disappear before your eyes. If the ghost walks off into the sunset, you may remain clueless to your encounter with a supernatural being.

Sometimes what you’re seeing is NOT a real live dead guy!

This is known as a residual haunting, which does depict someone who did live at some point in the past. The image of the ghost does represent events from time gone by play repeatedly This type of haunting can represent either a replay of a person’s ordinary habits, such as seeing grandma at her usual spot in the kitchen baking cookies, or can depict a traumatic emotionally charged event. It would in fact appear similar to old movie reruns. The apparitions present in this type of haunting are telepathic or psychical induced hallucinations, not living spirits

All ghosts are NOT friendly like Casper!

The spirit realm has its share of unfriendly characters. Some are simply nasty earth bound spirits, who never crossed into the light. They feel cheated and resent their fate, what they consider was a premature death. Other negative entities are much more dangerous. That would include threats by demonic entities that never walked the earth in human form. They are the most maniacal, as they don’t want God’s blessing.

Not all ghosts have tales of woe!

Contrary to the popular belief that all ghosts are unhappy souls roaming the earth, many spirits choose to go into the light but return periodically to look after their loved ones, often referred to as a “protector ghost,” because of their good intentions. These spectral -guardians have been identified in at least 75% of the investigations I have done.

In closing, I quote from Dr. Karlis Osis, who had this to say about apparitions/ghosts: “To me, it is silly the way in which people are totally unprepared to handle apparition experiences. They run-even from their own mothers. This is cruel. We should prepare people for all life situations-not just driving a car or crossing the street, but having an apparition experience as well.”
