Here are 7 paragraphs from Cardiac Melody: Music of the Heart.
“Is that…a fucking machine?”
“Bingo. Just let me know when you need me to turn it off.” Donning his cockiest grin, he sat in the next chair and took a long swallow of juice. He opened his fly and let himself out, stroking his dripping cock. Damn she looked good, her hair half obscuring her face, her cheeks pink and her eyes fluttering as the toy did it’s worst.
“You, you’re going to…Fuck.”
“Yes, Little Song?”
“You? You need?”
“Me? I need to sit here and enjoy the show. Oh, and if it isn’t good enough, that vibrator is still plugged in.” He gripped himself a little tighter, pulling in time with the pumping of the piston.
“Oh, God, Ah!”

5 Favourite things
1.      Movies. Especially sci-fi/fantasy, paranormal/supernatural, and comic-based movies. I also count those types of TV shows, ie Supernatural, Jessica Jones, Arrow etc.
2.      Books. Does that surprise you? Hehe
3.      Pets. I love my pets, and can’t wait to get more. We already have 1 dog, 2 cats and 3 snakes. We also want another dog, horses, chickens… we want a menagerie!
4.      Quiet times with my fiancĂ© and our daughter, or just one-on-one time with either of them. I don’t care if it’s at home or out. “Us time” is always magical.
5.      House planning. Sounds weird, I know. But I love looking at houses for sale, especially ones with floor plans, and imagining what furniture would go in it, themes, and yes, even making my own floorplans. I have considered doing interior decorating, and haven’t yet ruled out chasing that path.
She's one powerful Goddess, with acolytes she loves as children. They're her coven, and she will protect them however she can. She is Hecate. As she wills, So Mote It Be.

This inclusion tells the tale of a powerful coven in Salem. They face off against Bokors, demons and fellow witches. Will the power of their Goddess be enough to protect them as they fight to keep Salem safe? Will the women who lead them get the love they desire? Or will they burn in the fires that condemned their ancestors so many years ago?
Darkness surrounded her, smoke and the metallic scent of blood filled her nostrils. Panicked screams and bellows echoed around her as she fumbled about. She couldn’t tell which form she was in, human or stag, she was simply overwhelmed. Out of nowhere, fiery red eyes appeared in front of her. White fangs gnashed together in a sadistic grin. The figure came closer, allowing her to see it clearer. Wrinkled skin cracked and oozed as the blackened flesh moved. The foul apparition had been born of fire, she was sure, brought here to destroy and devour. Large, leathery wings sprouted from its back, the bony frames licked by flames that seemed to come from the creature itself. It was a nightmare summoned from the bowels of Hell, just one of many. If she didn’t stop it, they’ d consume the world, at the word of one scorned witch. She needed to get to the root of the problem, Hilana, before it was too late.
“Morgan!”
She opened her eyes at Caleb’s call, his face filling her field of vision. He pursed his lips and frowned, and it took her a moment to realize she must have fallen asleep and called out in a dream.
“Morgan, you were having a pretty bad nightmare, what happened?”
“It wasn’t just a dream; it was a foreshadowing.”
“That bad, huh?”  Caleb sat on the window seat next to her. 
“I don’t know what Hilana will promise them, but the demons will devour the world for her. She’s beyond seeking simple revenge. She has been twisted by her own magic and foul attitude into something truly evil.”
Caleb whistled. “So it’s a good thing Junie returned while you were sleeping.”
Morgan sat upright. “What did she find out?”
“You’re right, she isn’t just after simple revenge. Junie was able to get close enough to the sigils to look them up in the books now she’s back. It’s not looking good. They’re cacodemon sigils. She thinks Hilana will trade them free reign to create havoc, as long as they first destroy everyone who has done her harm.”
Morgan’s throat constricted that the mention of cacodemons.  “She’s crazy.”
Caleb nodded. “That was Siobhan’s diagnosis as well.”
“When does Junie think Hilana will summon them?”
“At the full moon on Friday.”
“Damn. That doesn’t give us long. Any suggestions on preventing the summons to begin with?”
“You mean besides burning down the house with Hilana in it?”
Award winning, bestselling author Phoenix Johnson has always been intrigued by the written word. Even when she was a young girl, she usually had her nose stuck in at least one book, and her need to read would drive her to peruse the back of the same cereal box each morning at breakfast. Paranormal and fantasy captured her heart, with tales about dragons, magic, and fanciful creatures sweeping her away to a wonderful new world where she felt she truly belonged.
Phoenix Johnson has had her nose to the grindstone, working to make her name known. With only a few months left to the end of her Bachelor of Arts Degree, she is eager for more time to focus purely on her writing.  Phoenix is extremely excited to see where her writing career takes her next.

Charmed by the Salem Witch
by Debbie Herbert

At the Women’s College of Salem, Sarah hopes to meet like-minded students of The Craft. But after joining a coven, the other girls seem to have it in for her and she can’t figure out why . . . 

. . . until Tanner, the new, cute IT guy, helps uncover her family’s dark secret. Sarah will have to learn to trust Tanner if she’s to survive a killer freshman year. And Tanner must accept his paranormal powers to save Sarah when the blood moon rises at Samhain, the witch’s Halloween.



Go to Salem, they urged.
You’ll love it, they promised.
It will be fun, they said.
They lied.
Tanner rubbed his eyes and tried to focus on a string of computer code. Some fun. He could have stayed in Alabama if he’d wanted to be stuck in a boring tech job. Sighing, he shoved out of his chair and walked to the window. In the darkness of late afternoon, a light shone in the library next door on the campus quad.
She was there again. Sitting alone at a table, her long, brown hair swept to one side, her enchanting profile glowing like a halo of warmth against the New England chill. Damn, the unbearable cold had turned his brain to poetic mush. She was just a girl, and he’d had more than his fair share of dating last year. Before everything had turned to shit.
He’d prove she was nothing special. Tanner abruptly closed down the computer, grabbed his coat, and walked down the semi-deserted hallway. “See you in the morning,” he called to his boss.
Mr. Higginboth didn’t bother looking up from his hunched position over a computer. “Night,” he mumbled, pushing up wire-framed glasses from the bridge of his nose.
Tanner shuddered. Would that be him thirty years from now? Buried in an academic environment, wearing old-man woolen sweaters and deciphering endless lines of computer code with steadily declining eyesight? Not how he’d envisioned his future. He closed his eyes and remembered the thrill of catching his one and only touchdown pass—the cheering crowd, outrunning the opposing team’s defenders, the ball tucked safely in his arms, and crossing the goal line. Score!
How things had changed in one year. And not for the good.
Bitter wind slammed into his body as he exited the tech lab. He clutched his leather jacket tighter, glumly trying to imagine how much colder Salem would be in winter. Back home, he’d still be in short sleeves and enjoying sunshine.
His right knee throbbed, as it always did in cold weather. Damn nuisance. You’d think he was ninety instead of nineteen. He walked as quickly as he could with the bum knee, grateful for the warmth of the library as he pushed open its heavy, wooden doors. The cozy scent of old books and weathered oak lifted his sour mood.
Quickly, he scanned the towering rows of books and the whispering crowd of students at the center tables. In the far right corner, on the second level, she was bent over a book, her long hair a veil, covering her face.
Tanner inwardly groaned as he climbed the stairs, trying to avoid wincing at the darting pain needling through his knee. A gaggle of girls passed, shooting him sly glances. He winked at the boldest one, who had flaming red hair, dressed all in black, and sported a large pentacle pendant. Back home, she’d have stuck out like a black widow on a bed of white linen. But at the Women’s College of Salem, she was part of a notable minority that flaunted a belief in witchcraft. She smiled, but her eyes held no warmth. She turned her back and elbowed the girl nearest her orbit. “He’s cute but . . . all crippled up. Too bad.”
His face warmed. The remark had been whispered, but it was loud enough to carry—as the girl no doubt intended. He was used to being called cute, but not to people wondering at his injury. At least, not that he’d overheard. Way to build his confidence as he approached the girl to whom he’d been drawn for the past few weeks.
He squared his shoulders, determined not to let the offhand comment ruin his plans. If he’d learned nothing else from his old football coach, it was to persevere, no matter the obstacles. Still, he was used to outmaneuvering three-hundred-pound linebackers, not pathetically limping like an old man as he climbed a set of stairs. All while a group of girls insulted his dignity.
The girls went their way, chattering, never sparing a glance behind them. Amazing—not in a good way—that he’d gone from a rising football star to nearly invisible.
Different. A tiny flash of red on the floor caught his attention. Tanner bent over, picking up a small, black feather with a skein of red floss clumsily woven into its spine. A few inches of the red thread formed a tiny circle, perhaps large enough for a small wrist. Some kind of Native American bracelet, perhaps? He looked around, but nobody caught his eye. It probably belonged to one of the girls who had laughed at him. Too bad. He wasn’t going to search them out and ask. He shrugged and stuffed it into his jacket pocket, intending to throw it in the nearest trashcan.
At last, he reached the top. Tanner gripped the railing, collecting his breath and his pride. Once both were again intact, he walked toward the mystery girl, his footsteps creaking on the old pine flooring, but she didn’t look up from the book held in her hands, a heavy, dusty tome—Salem Witch Trials and Mass Hysteria: 1692—1693.
Tanner flicked his index finger against the book’s spine to get her attention. “A little light reading?” he joked.
Eyes as gray as a November sky regarded him with a decided chill. He was definitely striking out with the ladies today.
Her voice was smooth and cold as ice. “Nothing light about the killing of innocent women.”
“That’s what you call irony.” Tanner pulled out a chair across from her and sat, uninvited. “You writing a history paper on the trials?”
She cocked her head to one side and regarded him with a raised brow. “Yes. Do you need to use this book?”
“Oh, no, I’m not a student.”
Wariness sharpened her delicate features, and her fingers gripped the edge of the table. Real smooth there, Tanner. Now you’re scaring the women away.
“Then who—”
“It’s okay,” he said quickly. “I work here. In the IT department. My uncle—Ralph Landers—is the college dean.”
Her death grip on the book relaxed a fraction.
“I can prove it.” He dug in his coat pocket and fished out his employee ID. “See? I’m totally legit.” He slapped the card on the table and slid it toward her.
“Tanner Adams,” she read aloud, comparing his face to the awkward employee picture. “Computer tech, WCS.”
The way she said his name with her proper, reserved New England inflection was strangely sexy. She pushed his ID card back on the table, and their fingers touched.
Chills, the good kind, vibrated through his entire body. Holy crap, what would it be like to kiss this girl, feel her arms around him—and . . . more. Much, much more.

Tantalizing Tuesday #japanese #lesbian #kitsune Illusion

Kitsune are actually really awesome! Check all the teasers on our blog.

Yuki stood in the park looking around for Eiko. It was dark, the sun nearly set in the west, but unlike the other visitors, Yuki didn’t leave. She sat on the bench closest to Eiko’s burrow and called for her. “Eiko-chan! I’m here.”
In a flash of red, Eiko seemed to pop into existence. “You are! Thank you for coming back.” Her movements were jerky, as though she wanted to hug Yuki but knew that wouldn’t be acceptable right now.
“Do you always look like this? This and a fox?”
Eiko pressed her lips in a line, and sweat beaded on her brow. “I can look like anything, anyone, but this is my natural human form. I use only the very smallest bit of my power to maintain this illusion. My true form is the fox.”
“So you could look like me?” Yuki asked, startled.
Eiko popped again and it was as though Yuki were looking in a mirror. It only lasted a moment before the busty redhead appeared again. “Or a man?” she suggested, appearing as a young man with dark spiky hair. “Or an animal?” She turned herself into a cat and jumped onto the bench, purring next to Yuki.
