The Blood Rose Tales are a short novella length, just right for telling those stories that explore a unique aspect of the world of the Nine Realms!

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000030_00040]For weeks, Mastyr Willem, agent for the Realm Investigative Unit, has been tracking Charlotte Vail, a human college student at the local Grochaire University. He’s had a thing for Charlotte that he doesn’t quite understand. When he finally asks her out on a date, passion erupts quickly and unexpectedly.

Has she seduced him or is it the other way around? But as he spends time with her on their first date, he knows something realm and very extraordinary is going on between them.

Is it possible she’s a blood rose?

A brief excerpt from Chapter 1:

Chapter One

Mastyr Willem slid his forefinger along the line of Charlotte Vail’s throat. Her pulse beat beneath his fingertip, tempting him as he’d never been tempted before. His fangs ached to descend. She smelled incredible, her scent reminding him of wisteria, warm and floral, but with an undercurrent that he knew was all Charlotte.

He stood on his private beach, the waves of Maris Sol lapping gently at the shore so early in the night. It wasn’t even ten yet.

His home was perched on the bluff thirty feet above the surf, but Charlotte had expressed a desire to walk along the beach. Now, barefoot, she wiggled her toes in the sand, cooing her pleasure.

He tilted her head gently and kissed her neck. She whimpered with each small pressure of his lips and shivered when he licked above her waiting vein.

She wore a low cut navy tank-top and a long gathered skirt, something the fae women of his realm often wore and which Charlotte seemed to prefer, though she was human. His gaze drifted down her creamy neck to a tempting line of cleavage. This was a first date and he desired her more than he should. He wanted to bury his face in her hair, then bite her throat. The thought of striking through her almost translucent skin had him aching deep in his groin.

“This doesn’t feel like a first date,” she murmured. She writhed against him, her hips arching into his. Layered beneath her excitement, he felt how nervous she was and didn’t he feel the same way.

He’d picked her up at eight. Two hours later, he’d brought her to his beach house. Had to be some kind of record.

“I didn’t plan this.” His voice was low and husky, but he needed her to know he hadn’t intended to bring her here. He’d thought maybe five or six dates before he’d make his move. How wrong he’d been, but he didn’t want her to think he was seducing her.
Yet he ached for Charlotte in ways he couldn’t understand, as though he was the one who’d been seduced.

Breathing in her rich scent, suddenly he felt his realm mating frequency charge to life, something no other woman had ever achieved. Why did this human woman arouse him when none of the Realm-women had come close? Another mystery.

If he didn’t know better, he’d swear the woman had been after him all these months, from the time he’d made eye-contact with her in one of her university classes.

He’d been speaking on the subject of profiling violent criminals and her auburn hair and her pale beauty had been a beacon in a class of five hundred, drawing his attention back to her again and again. But Charlotte had no guile, which was something he loved about her. She didn’t play games. She was forthright, said what she meant and meant what she said. He respected the hell out of her and maybe that was what had gotten him worked up to a fever pitch, why he’d broken his vow to keep women out of his private Maris Sol domicile, and why his mating frequency throbbed deep within.

He tried to calm down the demanding vibrations, but having his mating vibration on fire like this felt damn good and had him hard as a rock. So, he just let things flow.

“Willem,” she whispered, her hands stroking up and down his arms through his leather jacket. She squeezed his muscles and he flexed for her, showing off his strength. He felt as though every cell in his body reached for this young woman. But why did a full-blooded human have the ability to arouse his mating vibration?

And now, here are the details on the first two Blood Rose Tales:  TRAPPED and HUNGER!

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000030_00040]Blood Rose Tale #1:  TRAPPED.  In this first tale we get to watch a realm woman, half-fae/half-human, try to disconnect from her vampire warrior love, Zephyr.  But Zephyr, intent on keeping her safe, must see her home every night or he won’t be able to sleep.

Alesia despises that he kills the evil Invictus wraith-pairs and he thinks she’s being ridiculous for wanting to see them rehabilitated.

But by dawn, the pair is trapped together in his home and sparks fly when he soon discovers that the woman who refuses to have anything more to do with him is also the one woman who can satisfy his chronic and extremely painful blood starvation needs.
