About Rook

“You are the Bridge…”
Yanked out of her life by the mysterious and uncommunicative Revik, a spy from a different race, Allie discovers that her blood may not be as “human” as she always thought.
In a modern-day Earth much like ours, Alyson Taylor spent her life distancing herself from Seers, a second race of beings discovered on Earth and enslaved by humans. After getting in trouble with the law and with her own race in question, events in her life start to spiral out of control. When Revik appears, rescuing her from a group of anti-human terrorists and dragging her into an inter-species war, she learns that the world is nothing like it appears to be…and that she has far more in common with Seers than she ever wanted to believe.
When Revik tells her she’s the Bridge, a mystical being meant to usher in the evolution of humanity––or possibly its extinction––Allie must choose between the race that raised her and the one where she might truly belong.
A psychic, science fiction romance with a cyberpunk flair and apocalyptic, metaphysical leanings akin to the Matrix.
 
 
 
Excerpt
Prologue: Mistake
“PUT IT DOWN!” A voice yelled. “On the ground! Right now!”
I blinked in confusion, staring at the bottle in my hand. The jagged end of broken glass looked like something out of a cartoon, or an old gangster movie.
Blood ran down the inside of my arm, not all of it mine. My muscles locked, bunched up with adrenaline.
Someone must have called the police. The young guy in front of me didn’t have his gun out, but his hand held the holster menacingly, and his uniform brought a flush of panic, starting somewhere in my lower belly.
The other fire that had burned there—irrationally bright only seconds before—abruptly sobered. Without taking so much as a breath, I dropped the broken bottle, holding up my hands in a gesture of surrender.
I’ve never been a tough chick. I’d never done anything remotely like this before…but I knew enough to know that my combat boots, smudged make-up and punky, bleached-calico hair weren’t winning me any points with the men in blue. I looked around at the swath of cleared space around the bar.
“Hands up!” the cop yelled.
“They’re up!” I said.
He walked up, grabbing one of my wrists. He spun me around so I faced the bar. I felt cool metal hit my wrist as my chest thudded into the lacquered wood.
“You have any weapons?” the young policeman asked. He cuffed me, then patted me down. “Don’t fucking move!” he yelled, when I turned to look at him.
“No weapons!” I was shouting I realized, scared out of my wits.
All the while, my mind churned useless facts. People got shot doing stupid shit like this. More cops got shot in domestic disputes than during any other kind of call, which likely explained why the young cop’s hands shook as he cuffed me.
My eyes swept the oddly bright space until they lit on the person who had inspired all this drama, and that flame of irrational feeling ripped once more through my chest cavity, making it difficult to breathe, to think straight.
Jaden, my now ex-boyfriend, stood like a store mannequin, his eyes as wide as saucers in a pale face. He gripped the upper arm of his date, a voluptuous girl in a red vinyl dress, as if to steady himself. I looked at her, and the rage came back, intense enough to scare me. Breathing harder, I leaned against the wood, closing my eyes, trying to crush my own chest.
Feeling ripped through my center, animal-like—almost painful.
In my defense, I’d only heard about them that night, and the fact that their affair started three months earlier, while I’d been blissfully happy, thinking Jaden and I were mutually in love. According to his bass player, she’d started hanging out with them after shows, eventually winning him over with flattery, pouty lips and enormous tits.
She was babbling something to him and her friends now, half-hysterical, her arm bleeding profusely from where I’d slashed at her with the bottle, her red-painted lips another dark wound on her face.
I stared at them both, thinking, this can’t be real. It can’t be. This isn’t me.
But it was.

Excerpt
 
His tongue flicks out to touch his lips. Can he still taste blood?
 
His eyes flick to my lips, down to my throat, my breasts, lower, lower still. I’m close enough to see the golden flecks in his eyes shine. Smell that hard man smell of his which tugs at me. Heat from him spools towards me hitting me squarely in my chest, pulling at my stomach, churning my guts and I shudder.
 
His eyes widen, and as if unable to help himself, he lowers his mouth brushing my lips once, twice, thrice. Teasing me, nibbling at me, caressing my lips till I feel the heat inside twist and glow, till the lighting tree on my back sizzles, sparking fire.
 
I moan and reaching up capture his mouth with mine, thrusting my tongue against his; and feel the shock run through him.
 
He’s still just for a second, then he’s leaning into me, on me till I am surrounded by him, his touch, his skin, that cinnamon smell of his, which is so Vik. Heat from his body pushes at me, begging to be let in, holding me captive and I feel a trickle of sweat running down between my breasts. Breath coming out in short bursts, I strain against him, trying to free my shackled arms, but he doesn’t let go. He also doesn’t stop there.
 
His mouth lowers to my throat, pushing aside the bathrobe till he bares the curve of my shoulder, then bites me, lightly.
 
My heart slams against my rib cage at that, my eyes flutter shut and I bite my lips to stop myself from crying out. At the pain trembling down to my belly.
 
He kisses the skin, licking his tongue over the exact same spot and this time I shiver, but he’s already trailing his lips down to my breasts. His hand grips the flare of my lips and this time, I moan aloud as his fingers splay out over my belly.
 
And it’s as if the sound gets through to him, for he’s suddenly leaning back.
 
My eyes fly open and I look up at his face, want to trace his lips, run my fingers through his hair and once again I arch my back, push against him and this time he lets me go.
 
Even as I watch a shutter comes down over his eyes and they lose that bright glow I’d seen there just a second ago.
 
I know then, he’s going to leave and walk away and I can’t let him go.
 
Not now, not when I can tell he’s feeling something for me.
 
When my insides are churning as if this is the only thing that matters. When the emotions overwhelming me wipe out all that has happened before this, making me feel clean. When I don’t care who he is, or where he comes from or what his real relation is to Dr B. When something inside me senses that deep at his core, where it matters, he is honest at least as far as whatever ‘this’ between us is concerned.
 
I want him.
And I want to make him want me.
Make him show me how much he wants me.

Check out WITCH OF THE CARDS by Catherine Stine. Catherine is one of our contributing authors to 21 SHADES OF NIGHT box set. For a tiny 99c you can own 21 wicked novels from today’s NY Times, USA Today, and International Bestselling Authors.







About Witch of the Cards

Fiera was born a sea witch with no inkling of her power. And now it might be too late.
Witch of the Cards is historical, supernatural romantic suspense set in 1932 on the Jersey shore. Twenty-two year-old Fiera has recently left the Brooklyn orphanage where she was raised, and works in Manhattan as a nanny. She gets a lucky break when her boss pays for her short vacation in Asbury Park. One evening, Fiera and her new friend Dulcie wander down the boardwalk and into Peter Dune’s Tarot & Séance, where they attend a card reading.

Fiera has an unsettling ability to know things before they happen and sense people’s hidden agendas. She longs to either find out the origin of her powers or else banish them because as is, they make her feel crazy. When, during the reading, her energies somehow bond with Peter Dune’s and form an undeniable ethereal force, a chain of revelations and dangerous events unspools. For one, Fiera finds out she is a witch from a powerful sea clan, but that someone is out to stop her blossoming power forever. And though she is falling in love with Peter, he also has a secret side. He’s no card reader, but a private detective working to expose mediums. Despite this terrible betrayal, Fiera must make the choice to save Peter from a tragic Morro Cruise boat fire, or let him perish with his fellow investigators. Told in alternating viewpoints, we hear Fiera and Peter each struggle against their deep attraction. Secrets, lies, even murder, lace this dark fantasy.

About Desiring Death

Imagine a famed vampire huntress with a taste for death, so successful not a single vampire has ever managed to escape her wooden stakes or evade her silver knives. Her name is Violetta, and all that is about to change. 
Monsieur Martinet, vampire extraordinaire, is a master of his kind and can exert the kind of control over humans that Violetta has never seen before. He is a powerful force. He may well be unstoppable. And that’s going to be a problem, because Violetta has killed every single one of Martinet’s monstrous family – and he has a score to settle. 
He’s going to abduct her, imprison her, and then tie her down until she begs for mercy. And that’s only the beginning…
 

Excerpt

It was all she could do not to break into a fast run as soon as her feet hit the gravel drive of the Castello, but running would attract the kind of attention she did not need, so even though all instincts were screaming at her to make a break for it, she reined herself in. She did not turn her head to admire the elegant stone portico reception with its high plasterwork arches and intricate artwork, she did not stop to retrieve her beautiful shot silk shawl that had been deposited with a coatroom attendant on arrival, and she did not respond to any of the eager male glances being directed her way. She’d had quite enough of men for the evening.
Concentrating on weaving her way between the tiny borders of the boxed hedge garden, she made her way past trumpeting angels spouting fountains of water and large topiary arrangements of neatly clipped, cone-shaped trees. The front of the Castello walls had a panel of hedging that had been arranged into crenelated lines, resembling that of a fortress. It would have been a beautiful sight to behold had she not had her mind on other things. Listening to the grit crunch below her feet she slipped and skidded, wishing she’d thought to retrieve her shoes. Heels weren’t much use for running, though. Setting her sights on the soft glow of lamplight from the street just beyond the imposing cast-iron entrance gates, she walked as fast as her legs would allow her. When she finally reached the solace of the cobbled street and the castle gates had disappeared from view, she broke into a sprint and let her feet fly.
The adrenaline running through her body was at overload status. Every sense was on high alert. She listened for the tiniest sounds, kept her eyes peeled to all that was going on around her, and embraced the cool night air as it whipped her hair into a violent tangle. Violetta had a plan.
It was a relatively simple one. She needed to get herself inside hallowed walls, and those of St Mark’s Basilica would work very nicely. He could not follow her inside there. No vampire alive would ever willingly step inside those holy walls.
In her rush to escape, she found her bare feet tumbling over uneven cobblestones, but she refused to slow her pace. Time would be of the essence. Even though she was carefully guarding her thoughts, Martinet would soon realise that the image of herself chatting to her friends in the grand ballroom was a false one and there was only so much chatter and small talk that could be invented by one mind alone. If she concentrated, she might gain ten minutes. It might sound like a long time, but to a vampire that could move at the speed of light and travel with the wind, it was no time at all. He’d be able to make up the distance in the blink of an eyelid.
As her next footfall landed her shoulder gave out a sharp jolt of pain. It made her gasp but did not slow her down. Distance, it appeared, would have its own pitfalls. It was quite possible that the vampire could only provide pain management and mind control if she were nearby, thus the more distance she managed to place between herself and the beast, the more her shoulder would pain her. She was soon going to find out, one way or another.
‘Distance isn’t much of an object for me, now that a drop of my venom is in your veins and you can finish with the delightful drivel you are currently pretending to voice to Georgette. Your friends left the building five minutes ago.’
The sound of his gravelly voice in her head had her gulping for breath and stumbling simultaneously. She immediately panicked. There would be no time. His hands would be all over her in an instant and she would be destined for nowhere but death. Her body teetered forward, balance skewed drastically to the right, before she managed to steady herself.

‘Don’t stop on my account, Princess,’ he purred darkly. ‘I’ve got to pick up my coat. That should give you a fighting head start, ma chérie. No one rushes around in Italy, bar you apparently.’ There was a small pause as he cleared his throat. ‘Oh, one more thing. As you blatantly disregarded my instructions, the pain management stops. Consider it part of your punishment, although we’ll work on some finer aspects of correctional behaviour later this evening. If you think that bottom of yours stings now, you wait until I’ve finished with it this time tomorrow. That purple dress of yours is going to look so pretty, ripped to tiny smithereens on my red satin sheets.’

About C.P Mandara


Christina Mandara was born in the UK, but has spent most of her life travelling the world. She speaks three languages and has been chiefly employed in the fields of finance and travel. Her favourite city is Sydney and her favourite holiday destination is the south of France.

She loves keeping fit and enjoys running, cycling and water sports. Think surfing or sailing. She’s a big fan of BDSM in all of its glorious forms, and her favourite item in the toy closet (a box simply isn’t big enough) is her riding crop.

In her spare time she’s usually cuddled up with a good book, exploring the countryside or baking in the kitchen. In fact, she loves her kitchen so much she’s one of few woman who wouldn’t mind being tied to it! Her first and foremost love is writing, however, and more often than not you’ll find her on a laptop spinning tales of romance, erotica or dark, paranormal fantasies.

About Dark Wings



“I don’t want to kill you, not anymore.” He said, coming to face me. “I want to be with you. I want to hold you and touch you and—” He exhaled. “I. Want. You.” 
Violet Ashton is an exemplary angel with ninety-nine kills under her belt. Nothing could make her underestimate herself until she’s sent to hunt down Death, one of the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse. Or as Violet knows him–Lucas Cross, her ex-mentor and ex-lover. 
Defining the line between what her job requires and what her heart wants is the hardest decision she’s ever had to make. 
Lucas Cross is an angel turned demon. The only thing he had to worry about was helping his brothers end the world, that was until Violet blew into town. From the moment he saw her again his normal self has fought hard to keep down the demon that desperately wants to kill her. Torn between love and hate, Lucas is determined to push all of Violet’s limits. 
The feud between the Never Dark realm and The Underworld is at boiling point and if Violet can’t complete her mission Earth will pay the ultimate price.
