Title: Winter
Author: Nikita Rae
Genre: New Adult Suspense Thriller
Expected Release Date: November 25th, 2013
Reveal Host: Lady Amber's Tours




Synopsis:
New Adult Suspense Thriller

From Debut Author Nikita Rae

A girl with a dark history…
Iris Breslin took a leap of faith when she changed her name. As Avery Patterson, she is no longer the daughter of a serial killer. No longer the girl who was bullied and abused through high school. A fresh
name and a fresh start at Columbia University means Avery can leave all that behind. There’s only one thing marring her dream of a clean slate….
A boy with a past of his own…
Luke Reid has a lot going for him: sex appeal, badass tattoos and insane musical talent. Despite his guitar skills, his calling in life has always been to serve and protect. A NYPD cop by day, singer in rock band D.M.F by night, from the outside Luke seems like he’s got it made. But falling hard for a girl whose father was accused of deeply sinister acts—a man whom Luke shares a devastating history with, himself—only serves to complicated things.
Pieces of a puzzle….
Four symbols, four methods of destruction.
A trade.
Borrowed wings.
Dark secrets that threaten to destroy.
Winter is a full length novel, the first in the Four Seasons series. The next instalment will be available for purchase early 2014.












Author Bio: Nikita Rae resides in fair Kingston, Ontario, with her husband and three year old son. She began writing at an early age, and has been honing her skills ever since. She is a passionate figure skater and loves cold weather-- a good thing since her home town is buried under snow for half the year! When she's not penning sexy suspense novels, Nikita can also be found enjoying a glass of red and watching Hell On Wheels. Winter is her debut novel.

Cover Reveal!!!

Look what we have for you today! The Awesome cover reveal for the Virginia Templeton Stories by Marsha Casper Cook!


The Virginia Templeton Stories






Look here, Marsha Casper Cook was nice enough to give us the first chapter!!!
 
 
Virginia Templeton arrived at her psychiatrist’s office, ten minutes late as usual. She was always late, as she rather enjoyed a grand entrance. Virginia was beautiful and knew it, tall and graceful, with hips tapering into long, slender legs. A body to die for, as they say. All heads turned when Virginia entered a room; women wanted to be her, and men just wanted her.
She was just as sexy dressed as she was undressed, as she absolutely loved fashion. Her favorite expression was “shop until you drop,” and she did just that. Virginia loved expensive clothes and shoes — oh, how she loved shoes — and accessorized every outfit. She didn’t look at price tags and, luckily, she didn’t need to.
Virginia’s image didn’t allow her to be all smiles or say nice things, as she preferred to play the misunderstood diva and use her good looks for favors. People didn’t cross the line with Virginia often and, when they did, her wrath was like nobody else’s.
Nicholas Waters, her psychiatrist, sat behind his desk, waiting for Virginia to make the first move. Sometimes she didn’t speak during her sessions, instead just walking back and forth, angered that she was wasting her time in sessions that she loathed. The only reason she had even agreed to see a doctor was because her deceitful husband made that a provision in their ongoing divorce proceedings. She wanted every last dime she felt she had earned in their ten-year marriage. She had smiled when she had to, and undressed when her husband wanted her. A small price to pay for getting anything and everything she wanted.
Virginia thought that Nicholas wasn’t paying attention to her, which really pissed her off. Even though he was just her psychiatrist, it was still important to her that he pay attention. Little did Virginia know that Nicholas couldn’t concentrate on anything else when she was near him.
Nicholas Waters was bound by an ethical code to avoid involving himself with his patients. But in his mind, they were just fantasies. Desiring a woman and actually acting upon his desire were two different things, and his fantasies usually went away after a visit or two. Virginia Templeton was a different case. He knew it, she knew it, and so did anyone who had ever come in contact with her.
She had been looking at him from the moment she arrived, but didn’t say a word. Nicholas sometimes wondered if she knew how much he wanted her. He would imagine himself lying next to her, consuming every inch of her sensuous body. Kissing her, touching her breasts, wondering how he could make her happy. She was filled with desire―and, sometimes, quite a bit of rage―but that didn’t stop Nicholas from having tight control of his mind every time she came for a visit. He was her psychiatrist, and that was the way it had to stay … for now.
He was also a married man and, regardless of his unhappiness, he had remained married to the same woman for more than twenty years. When Nicholas met Carmella, he was a struggling medical student with loans, minutes away from personal bankruptcy. She was beautiful, with vibrant red hair and a sweet smile that usually presented her in a glamorous, but guarded, light. Love never entered the picture. Her family was very wealthy and highly visible. He knew she was the solution to his financial problems.
Carmella’s main flaw was that she usually had a drink in her hand at eight in the morning and continued drinking until very late at night. She never wanted sex with him. That didn’t mean she didn’t like sex; she just didn’t like sex with her husband. For his part, Nicholas didn’t care about love or sex until he met Virginia.
From the very moment Virginia Templeton walked into his office, attitude and all, he was hooked. He had never felt such a strong, passionate connection to anyone. Actually, he never questioned his life
as much as he did once Virginia Templeton became his patient.
A friend of his had referred her, and Nicholas reluctantly took her on as a patient because he felt doing otherwise might put her on the edge of doing something horrible. She came in with a lot of hatred and, whether she admitted it or not, he sometimes thought they made a breakthrough. A patient who didn’t want help never got better, but he felt she could make progress by increasing her visits to his office.
Nicholas watched Virginia, waiting until she was ready to start. It always took her a little bit, as she prepared to start the sessions in her own way.
After strutting around the office, Virginia kicked off her leopard, four-inch Stuart Weitzman pumps and sat her ass right smack in the middle of Nicholas’s desk. She was wearing a very tight, black leather skirt, and a see-through, white lace shirt. Because she was all leg when she crossed them, which she liked to do, Nicholas could see her black lace panties and the tiny rose tattoo on her upper right thigh.
“So, Nick, where shall I begin today?” Nicholas didn’t answer, and that angered her more than he knew. “What the fuck? Help me out here, Doc. I need some answers.”
For months, everything Nicholas had tried had completely pissed her off. At that moment, he felt she might be ready for a breakthrough, and quietly let her continue.
“Okay, let me tell you what happened last night,” she went on. “Slater, my loving, sweet jerk of a husband was out of town. I got in my car, went right back to my old stomping grounds, drank too much, and fucked a whole lot of times. Since you didn’t ask who I was with, let me tell you. Two men were in my bed last night. One was very tall, with dark curly hair. The other was very short with a long blonde ponytail, kind of a freaky looking guy. One was on my right and one was on my left. Blondie had one finger in my ass and the other dark, sexy guy, who looked a lot like you, was in my cunt. What do you think about that?”
Nicholas began to write notes. All thoughts of him having a conversation with his patient were off the board for now. He was so busy picturing the details that he couldn’t really concentrate. He was so far away from where he should be ethically that he stopped himself, took a breath, and then continued with his notes.
Virginia took full advantage of the moment, as she quickly scooted off his desk and proceeded to strut around the office. “Wow, Doc, when did you get that picture-perfect plant?” She didn’t actually give a shit about the plant on the floor; she just wanted Nicholas to enjoy the view as she leaned down to touch it. “Follow me, Doc.” Bending down even lower, she spread her legs, once again exposing her lace-covered bottom. Then, just as quickly as she had lowered herself, she stood up, turned around, and smiled beautifully.
“You know, Nick, you’re such a bore. You just sit there and write and write and write. Come on. Say something. Do you ever answer your patients, or do you like to totally piss them off? If that was your intention, it worked. You win. I’m totally pissed off.”
Nicholas could sense her anger boiling over, and watched in anticipation that Virginia might actually be feeling something. She was just about to explode; he knew it, but chose not to stop it from happening. Sometimes that was all a patient needed to break through the barriers they’d surrounded themselves with. He also had to keep reminding himself of what was ethical. He was in danger of crossing the line, and he knew it. He hoped his feelings weren’t transparent to Virginia.
“I hate boring men,” she continued, as she paraded around the room. “My father was boring. He rarely talked, and he never smiled. You can write that in your little notebook. My father was a piece of shit―a mean, selfish asshole. He never talked to me or treated me like his daughter. He had no love in him; that’s what my mother used to say. He had no soul, and I didn’t even cry when he killed himself. It was no loss to anyone. There are two things I hate in men. A man who doesn’t smile, and a man who acts like he’s better than me.”
Nicholas glanced down at his watch, realizing that Virginia was getting more agitated. There was
usually a moment during her treatments that pushed her to the top. The moment varied, but the pattern always repeated.
“Is my time up?” she asked. “Even if it’s not, it’s time for me to go. We’re getting nowhere today. As a matter of fact, I think today will be my last visit. I don’t need to be here. Time is money. Face it, Nick, you can’t help me. No one can.”
Nicholas decided it was now or never. “Virginia, sit down and stop pacing. Let’s go with what you just said. You do want me to help you, don’t you?”
“No, I don’t think so. How would you feel if you were seven years old and your father pulled out a gun and pointed it at your mother? Then shot her, took the same damn gun and shot himself in the head while his daughter watched? I watched that! What kind of a person does that to his child?” She was quite proud of herself for once again coming up with a good story. “What makes it worse was my phony foster parents stuck me in the attic with ten other kids. Sometimes I looked around the attic and wondered how my life could ever be anything but dreadful and confusing. There were days when I didn’t even feel human.” Oh, she was so good at this.
“Okay, Virginia. Now that you have told me what happened to you, and you think I bought it, let’s begin all over again. Every time you come here, you tell me a different story. This time, tell me the truth. Then maybe, just maybe, I can help you.”
“Fuck you, Nick!” she growled. “That was the truth.”
“Okay, then. Tell me how and why you married a man you didn’t love.”
Virginia began to laugh. “You don’t really think I come here for your advice. Do you? I come here because my asshole husband makes me come here. He won’t give me my fair share in the divorce unless I agree to have some therapy. He wants to ease his conscience. He’s afraid he’ll look bad if I go off the deep end, and he doesn’t want any headlines. A man like Slater puts himself before anyone.”
Nicholas returned to his desk, which served as his safety net. He could sense Virginia was getting quite angry, and wasn’t sure if he should push during this session. Usually, that only infuriated her more, causing her to tell more lies.
“Okay, Nick. Since we’re having this nice little chat, let me tell you what I think. My husband wants to fix me and set me free. Women like me don’t get fixed. We like men, sex, and booze. We drink for fun and fuck like crazy. What’s so wrong with that? If it feels good, why not? I hate to think that being in love is enough for anyone.”
After thinking for a moment, Nick figured it was time to talk. “Believe it or not, love is enough for many people. One day, you will be in love, and maybe that will be enough for you too.”
“Oh, really? Are you in love with your wife? Do you even have a wife? I don’t know anything about you, other than I want to fuck you. And I think you want to fuck me. I don’t do normal, and I don’t think you do either. Or let me put it another way. You might do normal, but you don’t really like normal.”
Nicholas was on his way to understanding her convoluted view of what she was all about. He didn’t soften just yet, but he was on his way. He didn’t want to compromise, but he was a man. Virginia had gotten to him even with all his armor; she knew how to dig deep. He was very close to giving in to his fantasy, and she knew she had finally penetrated into his soul. It was, she thought, her moment.
Game on! She was euphoric. “I bet if you let me get you in the sack, we would be born again as one. If you allowed me to slowly undress you, button by button, and then gently massage every morsel of your being. My lips would embrace that cock of yours and you, my dear doctor, would never be the same. I promise you that! I can take you on a journey that will totally overwhelm you, and you will be mine forever, or for as long as I want you.” A sultry smile spread across her face.
Virginia found herself moving as close to Nicholas as she possibly could. She could barely breathe. Her breasts pressed against his chest, she could feel his hardness against her. He didn’t feel like other men. He was distant and completely disconnected from her. To her surprise, he showed no reaction. He just stared at her in silence.
Being this close to a man who seemed to feel nothing was quite disturbing to her ego. Every man she knew would have reacted quite differently. Although, she was excited by the challenge he presented. She straightened her shoulders, not allowing herself to be weak.
Nicholas wanted to forget that he was her doctor and instead take her in his arms. He was uncertain how long he could resist, but he knew there would be no turning back once he gave in. He stepped back, putting some distance between them.
His rejection angered Virginia. “You’re not the right doctor for me. Tell me why you took my case. Your practice was full, but you added me to your patient load. Did you really think you could help me?”
“Yes, of course I thought I could help you.”
“Then why the fuck aren’t you helping me?” she spat.
“Because you don’t want help. You have repeatedly told me one lie after another. I can’t perform miracles.”
“Screw you, Nick. Screw you. I don’t like to waste time and today, as usual, I am wasting my time. The only thing left is for us to go to bed together. I know you want me, I can tell. But you can’t do it if you’re my doctor.”
“Virginia, sit your ass down. I’m your doctor, not your lover. Why would you think that I want to go to bed with you?” His patience was wearing thin.
“Because every man wants me,” she purred, again closing the distance between them. Reaching for his belt, she began to slowly lower his zipper. “You want me and I know it.”
“Virginia, you need to leave. Now. As of this very moment, my services as a doctor are over.”
Virginia backed off. “You don’t mean that.”
“Oh, but I do. Watch this.”
Nicholas wrote on his notepad, “Virginia Templeton’s sessions have ended as of July 9.” He signed the paperwork to make it official, then pointed to the door.
“You need to leave right now.”
Virginia strolled out of the office, not looking back. She refused to let Nicholas see the tears in her eyes. He had won, and she hated that.
Nicholas took several deep breaths, relieved to have resisted her very tempting offer. Their sessions had ended, and only time would tell if he would miss her. If he was honest with himself at that moment, though, he was disappointed at the thought of never seeing her again.

Meet Jake Bonsignore!

Check out Author Jake Bonsignore. Welcome our newest memeber of the pack. We are here today to talk about his upcoming YA Fantasy.  So grab some popcorn, pull up a seat and get comfy. Let's start with the facts.

Title: Empyreal Illusions: Book One of The Inferno Unleashed
Author: Jake Bonsignore
Genre: YA Fantasy / Thriller
Release: May 29, 2013 Book Design: Regina Wamba of Mae I Design and Photography

Blurb

A Thin Line Separates Justice From Revenge….

Fourteen-year-old Breena Taljain’s dreary existence in the slums of Purgaire comes to a sudden end when a chance encounter with a criminal mastermind known as the Patriarch goes horridly wrong. His assault on her for refusing to pay for her mother’s addiction leaves her comatose and teetering on the edge of life and death.

Galbrecht Atalir is a washed-up doctor struggling to overcome his inner demons through alcohol and aggression. He never quite recovered from the unsolved murder of his family seven years prior. When he discovers Breena as his newest patient, he knows at once that the Patriarch is the one who eluded him for almost a decade.

The medicine Galbrecht gives Breena draws her into a heavenly paradise. When it ebbs away, though, the recurring trauma plunges her into treacherous hinterlands. There, Breena must learn to find power in courage, hope, and love to overcome fiends of hatred bent on permanently ending her existence.
With justice burning in his heart, Galbrecht begins a race against time to seek out the Patriarch in the underworld before Breena loses her struggle against the ever-darkening terrors of her mind….

Now, to the man of the hour, Jake Bonsignore!

1. Tell us a little about yourself.
My name is Jake Bonsignore. I am an independent author. I grew up in Staten Island, New York and moved to Florida at the start of college. I am a graduate of the University of South Florida with magna cum laude honors. I wrote my first novel, Descendant of Strife (adult fantasy), when I was 16 years old and released it a few years later. My second novel, Empyreal Illusions (YA Fantasy / Thriller), released on May 29, 2013! Its sequel, Awakening the Fire, (YA Fantasy / Thriller) is forthcoming! Outside of my literary pursuits, I enjoy playing sports and am a fitness enthusiast. I’m currently working on my new novel, a YA Romance called The Lioness!

2. What was your inspiration for Empyreal Illusions?
Good question. Funny story. The main inspiration for this novel was a song called Firewalk by the band Beseech. One line in the chorus just invoked a feeling, an idea, and I could feel the gears in my head turning the minute I heard it. It’s hard to describe. I was actually listening to the song for the first time while I was in the college library, ‘studying’ for a business final. Instead of studying I was able to get the first five pages written and even pass the exam with flying colors. Who would have known that a simple idea I was doing just to pass the time and that was originally meant to be a short, SHORT story - a novella, even – would end up being an ambitious work spanning years? Not I, for one! J

3. Can you tell me a little more about the main characters of Empyreal Illusions?
Sure. Breena Taljain is a fourteen-year-old girl who lives in the shanty town of Purgaire. Her mother is a Nepenthe (anti-depressant) addict and she never met her father. She works in a dirty pub as a dishwasher to get by instead of going to school and spends most of her nights in the streets and alleyways of the slums. At the start of Empyreal Illusions she is almost the epitome of despair. She had no hope, no faith, no trust, and is overflowing with anger. Throughout the course of the novel, though, she starts to grow up and have confidence. Her (mis)adventures are a coming-of-age experience for her.

Galbrecht Atalir is a thirty-six year old washed up doctor. He is nearly at rock bottom in his life, as he never quite recovered from the unsolved murder of his wife and daughter seven years ago. The authorities never investigated the case. He had delved into the criminal underworld to exact justice…and failed. After leaving town and settling in the slums of Purgaire. A stroke of fate gives him a tip on his once-abandoned quest to bring justice to his family’s killer, and encountering Breena—who is nearly a mirror image of his youngest, deceased daughter—gives Galbrecht newfound passion. Once again he finds himself returning to the criminal underworld he fled from so long ago. For Galbrecht, his trials and tribulations are a way to come to terms with his tragic past.

4. What is your favorite quote in Empyreal Illusions, and what does it mean?
“It takes courage to live, yes, but it takes true bravery to stand your ground in a world aligned against you.” Breena Taljain says this during a confrontation towards the middle of the novel. It basically exemplifies one of the themes of the book that I try to stress. The world isn’t always kind and things don’t always go your way. However, that’s when you need to be strong,
acknowledge the adversity, and stand firm. Not backing away and not retreating…having the courage to stand up and live is tantamount, all the more so when all the odds are stacked against you. Breena Taljain and Galbrecht Atalir, the two central protagonists, have to realize this at many points in the novel.

5. So, Empyreal Illusions is the first book of The Inferno Unleashed series. Tell me about the second one?
Gladly! It’s called Awakening the Fire. It immediately picks up where Empyreal Illusions leaves off and explores the rest of Breena’s and Galbrecht’s excursions and trouble to escape the chains of their past. It is a little shorter than Empyreal Illusions and its release date is currently forthcoming.

6. Who are some of your favorite authors?
As you can probably guess, there are WAY too many to name, since I am an avid of a reader as I am a writer. However, a few names that instantly come to mind upon hearing that question (and some of their works) is Brandon Sanderson (Mistborn trilogy), Robert Jordan (Wheel of Time), Mercedes Lackey (Valdemar), Tad Williams (Otherland), R. Scott Bakker (Prince of Nothing), John Marco (Bronze Knight), and Robert McCammon (Swan Song). Most of my favorite authors write fantasy.

7. Do you have any advice for new writers?
Don’t give up. Keep at it and remember of all things, writing is re-writing. Expect to edit your work multiple times. Additionally, the ideas you may have while plotting the story may not come to be when you actually write it. That’s normal, that’s expected, and it’s wonderful. Don’t ever lose heart or let non-constructive criticism get you down!

Heavy Metal Heartbeat hits the News!

OMG! Check out the review of Heavy Metal Heartbeat in the Examiner! Holy crap! I am still on cloud nine and so excited! It was awesome! Here is some of my Fav lines:

" The scenes with Ozzie and Paige are so hot and seductive; their chemistry just oozes off of the pages. I found myself daydreaming about Ozzie, and wishing I was Paige; trust me ladies you want to read this book. Author AmBear Shellea has a way of writing intimacy that I just can’t explain; basically the love scenes are some of the most provoking and racy that I have read to date.

The author also has a unique way to bring your emotions up the rollercoaster of happiness−and then rip it right out from under you. The threats from the first book come back with a vengeance in the second book. There is kidnapping, passion, suspense and some very thought provoking moments in this book."

Heavy Metal Heartbeat ♥ 99 cents ♥ Please Share :)
He stood next to his father fidgeting with the loose strings of his jeans and white tank top. The horizon was swallowing the setting sun, taking all of its dusky orange light with it and... leaving only the soft light from the moon.
The blaring heavy metal tune did nothing to soothe his anxiousness. His skin crawled across his bones like ants on parade and his muscles twitched. His inner animal salivated at the prospect of a kill and paced its cage, biding its time. Words sailors wouldn't even use fell softly out of his mouth from the pent up frustration.
 
Hang on, I swear I will save you.
 
It played out as if in slow motion. He heard everything effortlessly: The soft swish of his father's plaid button up shirt as he carefully gathered his bow from the ground, leather gloves squeaking softly as he gently pulled the taught string, arrow notched and ready for flight. The breeze caressed every inch of the arrow as it sailed through the air with the speed of a jet. A wicked smile crossed his face.

☆¸.•*¨*`•.☆Heavy Metal Heartbeat Cover Reveal☆¸.•*¨*`•.☆

Heavy Metal Heartbeat is one wild ride. Its twists, turns and mind games will leave you breathless and borderline crazy.

This rockin' adventure begins with Ozzie, who has awakened from a harsh brush with death. Just as he thought he overcame all the dangers of his supernatural survival, danger strikes with a vengeance. The news of the kidnapping of a loved one ignites his rage, unlocking a family secret and changing who he is forever.

Now he's in a rush to play hero and savior. There's only problem; What happens if the savior becomes a villain?

Ozzie's friends, with the help of his father, put him to the test to see if he can indeed be the hero that saves the day or the hindrance that gets them all killed. While visiting the in-between he is given the knowledge to overcome his situation. All he must do is embrace who he is. Who is that, exactly?

Turns out when you take a human man with an ancient bloodline, add in slash marks from a Wolf, a bite from a Vampire, the pure love from the woman he loves and piss him off, you get a man no one expected!

Bad Ass Hunter or Uncontrollable Vigilante?

A Touch-ing Makeover!

Check it out!!! The Touch series gets a makeover! The Lovely Airicka Phoenix and her Touch Series have the same tasteful awesome storyline, but get a whole makeover! Without further ado...


Well now, don't they look awesome! These are the new covers! Whoo Hoo! We are so excited.

Touching Smoke


For sixteen-year-old FALLON BRAEDEN being on the run had been the easiest part of her life. Packing up and crossing whole cities on a split second decision had been tedious, having no friends and being alone had been painful, but being caught by the truth was something she learned too late was worse.

Fallon is a weapon. She was created to destroy. Keeping her alive, keeping her safe is all Isaiah knows. It’s all that matters, because Fallon is his. She belongs to him. She is a part of his body, his soul, his heart. He will do anything, kill anyone to keep her, even if it means sacrificing himself.

But can Fallon believe the stranger on the motorcycle claiming he was there to die for her? How do you trust when you have no one but the memories of a girl you’ve never met and a tall, dark, gorgeous boy that you feel pulsing deep in your soul? What do you do when you’ve been lied to your whole life? When you’re told you’re normal even though nothing about you is normal? Fallon must learn quickly just what she is before the evil chasing her finally gets what it wants… her blood.

The world depends on her not falling in love, not giving in. But what happens when the temptation becomes too great, when falling is her only option? Can she live knowing the world will burn because his touch is the only thing keeping her alive?

Touch Passion. Touch Power. Touch Smoke!

Touching Eternity
Before Fallon was created to destroy. Before love became the ultimate weapon of destruction. There was Amalie and the horror that started a revolution that tore the fabric of humanity, of everything standing in the balance between power, hope and survival.

Amalie has one wish, one gnawing desire — she wants to die.

She wants to leave this world behind with its pain and darkness. She wants to finally breathe. But Amalie is a prisoner, a disease, not fit for life. She is unwanted, unnatural. She is defective, something useless and broken. Her own mother hadn’t wanted her. Her father hated her. The world shunned her and the only person she had ever loved, truly and with all her heart and soul, couldn’t stand the sight of her, couldn’t stand the thought of ever being with her. She repulsed him. Her insanity disgusted him. He’d forgotten her. He’d left her behind, deserted and abandoned her to a madman hell bent on crushing her, stealing her soul and shattering her will.

But what if she’s finally given hope? A reason to live? Can Amalie finally accept the hand offering so much for so little in return? Can she love again when she has nothing left to give?

Can she finally be free?
Both of these wonderful books can be found on Amazon!

Love Rocks Book Tour Stop


Whoo Hoo! Day 2 in the Love Rocks Book Tour!  We have a small change in venue, today the excerpt will be read here instead. Booknerd 101, had to pull out due ot unforseen circumstances, so let's keep her in out thoughts.
So, Here we go.

Excerpt from Rock n Roll Promises

Two hours until sunset…

   She stood with her back against the wall and stared at her newly remodeled house. All that time and energy now looked wasted. Her kitchen now darkening and somber seemed to match her mood. With the help of her friends, the cute cafĂ© table sat nestled along the far side of the kitchen, out of the way, and the chairs carefully stacked against the wall. Her eyes turned and lingered on the living room. All of her pretty wood and plush furniture which once sat neatly displayed around the room, were now crammed into every corner. Where maroon and cream used to beautifully mesh together and flow through the room, today looked as splotches on canvas corners.
The glowing, dark rays of the sunset splashed the room through curtain-less windows. Inhaling once, she took one last look, and then returned to the present and her awaiting task.

    I am sure glad that I have money because I am sure all of my stuff is going to be destroyed. If we all make it…it will be worth it.

She strode over to her stereo and clicked the play button. Metallicas “Fuel” wailed through the speakers. Heading to her room she let the music fuel her adrenaline.

Time to prepare for battle!

    Through the bedroom door, she marched to her closet and flung open the double doors. Her black leather outfit felt smooth in her shaky hands. She crossed the room, dropped the garment on her bed and pulled off her clothes. She yanked the one-piece outfit over her limbs and slowly pulled the zipper closed in the front. It fit as tightly as skin. The leather squeaked a bit as she moved her arms and legs, testing for mobility. She dropped onto the softness that was her bed and pulled on her tall, black boots that had been sitting under her nightstand. Dressed and ready, she walked to the bathroom and put her hair in a loose ponytail.

“If we werent about to fight a pack of dogs, I think I would take you where you stand.”

    She turned her head and looked at Jaxson in his human form, leaning on the doorframe. He looked as good as always, tight black T-shirt, jeans, and boots.

She smiled as she asked, “Like it, do you?”

“Oh, yes. Black leather outfit and long, blood-red nails…”

“Focus. Get your mind out of the gutter and on the task at hand.”

“Im focused. Just admiring what Im fighting for.”

She smiled at his words and heartfelt expression on his face. “Im not nervous, just anxious.”
