Celestial Seduction by Jessica E. Subject

Her intensity excited him, but he needed to find a way to keep her calm. She refused to look into his eyes. His mouth crashed down on hers, absorbing her next words. She objected at first, but then her tongue reached out to him, a passionate gesture unheard of on Ginnun.

He matched the force of her kiss and skimmed his hands down her arms to rest on her sides near her breasts. She no longer struggled. Her arms wrapped around him, keeping him close. When she released his mouth to take a breath, he sat up. She panted underneath him.

That was incredible. I….I felt like I was flying through space. So many colors and the brightest stars.”

He experienced something different. With that kiss, he had finally found someone who could keep him grounded on Earth and repress any regret for not returning to Ginnun. He brushed his thumb along her cheekbone. “I’d like to continue if you’ll let me.” He leaned down and placed light kisses across her face.

A sigh escaped her lips and the last of her tight muscles relaxed underneath him. He slid his body down her legs, his hands returning to her belly.

I thought you were going to continue something else,” she whispered.

His cock pressed against his pants already. Her sudden interest in sex made it painful. “I want to, but I need to finish giving you this gift.”

Her body moved but she didn’t struggle or try to get away. “What exactly are you doing to me? What is this gift? Why was my stomach glowing?”

He took in a deep breath and released it a little faster and louder than he’d wanted. He knew the answer would lead to more questions. While prepared to answer them, he didn’t want to scare her away. His response required carefully chosen words to ensure he gave her the gift before he told her of his origins.

I’m healing you.” The blue glow returned across her belly as his hands warmed. “You’ll be able to have a child when I am finished.”

Her eyes widened. He sensed her fear, but she didn’t move. “Your child?”

No, I am not giving you a child. That can only be done in the usual ways. I am simply making your body able to become pregnant and carry a child.”

Carrie propped herself up on her elbows. Her eyes stared down at her belly, but she remained calm. “How? No doctor could do that for me. How can you? Are you some type of voodoo priest or something?”

No.” He needed to continue and keep his heritage from her for as long as possible.

A religious fanatic who thinks I’m possessed by demons?”

Frey laughed. “Nope.” He was almost finished. Just a little longer. The scarring had all returned to normal, healthy tissue. He only needed to stimulate the maturation and release of eggs in her ovaries.

How then? I know you’re doing something to me. I can feel it.”

Remember how I said I needed an open-minded partner?”

She nodded, her eyes catching a quick glance from his before returning to her stomach.

Just a couple more minutes and he’d be finished. He prepared to hold her down should she freak out when he told her he came from space. “I’m not exactly like you and most of the people on Earth. I’m….different.”

Like a demon or a guardian angel?”

He laughed. It sounded forced, but he needed to stay focused on healing Carrie rather than mating with her. “No, you’re thinking paranormal. Try science fiction.”

She began to squirm under him, but he didn’t need to restrain her. “A….clone? Artificial intelligence?”

He finished healing her and lay down beside her. His thumb ran across her lips, wanting to taste them again, but knowing he probably wouldn’t. “Try alien.”

Synopsis from Goodreads 

Inside a small village within the Great Plains of Montana, a ritual initiated in blood will be performed. This ceremony has been executed only once before and will mark a rite of honor and justice. Commonly, the Assiniboine are a harmonious people with strong pride and passions, but turn to the spirits for vengeance when wronged. The tribe’s chief will summon the Great Spirit on behalf of his people, for no earthly man can make evil suffer
like a greater evil.

Legend of the Chupacabra finds Jessie and Suzanne living peacefully in Portland, Oregon, six years after they believed to have put an end to the curse of the chupacabra. But the women
come to learn of their failure and the futility of their sacrifices when a remarkable reunion brings horror back into their lives; only this time, what they face will be unlike any creature they've encountered. Legend of the Chupacabra marks the end of a trilogy but the continuation of a saga that will leave this moment of history drenched in blood.


     Legend of the Chupacabra is the third book in the Chupacabra series. We are following Suzanne and Jessie once again. They both have fallen into a type of groove. Jessie has a job at a bar in Portland. She uses this job to make money the conventional and unconventional way. She hasn't grown out of her stealing habits. If anything, she has evolved. She steals from the mindless drunks that stumble in and out of her bar, but she puts the money to proper use. Things for her and Suzanne are going good until it seems the chupacabra has made a visit to Portland. Jessie and Suzanne thought the creature was finally out of their lives, but they are even more wrong than they thought.
     Hebler has done it again. This series gets better and better. This is definitely my favorite in the series so far. The twists and turns, the action, the heartbreak, this book just had it all. Jessie and Suzanne are amazing as always. Jessie is more grown up now and she is as feisty as ever. Jessie has always been a favorite because you never know what she will do or say next. I love her street smarts. She read people so well, it is like she has a sixth sense or something. It is crazy, but very accurate.

     This is such a wonderfully written series and this is just impeccable. Hebler does such a great job putting you in the 19th century. Everything feels authenticate and real. You actually feel like you are there. Hebler writes in a way that really draws you in and puts you in the time frame of the book. I loved how well this story progressed as well. We think that the curse of the chupacabra is finally over, but there happens to be someone else who is cursed and they ended up in Portland. Jessie and Suzanne can't believe that their nightmare is back and worse yet, the why of it. Suzanne and Jessie have both adjusted to their new lives. But not only must they deal with the chupacabra, but they also must deal with a surprise visit who also has a surprise secret. I couldn't believe it. I still can't believe it actually.

     On top of the chupacabra, Jessie and Suzanne have to deal with people in their lives who have some terrible secrets to hide. Jessie meets an Indian named, Tree Cradle, who she does not trust. They both want to kill each other, but they both end up in a situation they never would have expected. Jessie makes some discoveries that she knows she has to fix. 

     I love that Hebler has given us a great history for the chupacabra. It shines a different light on it. It is not the typical chupacabra we grew up hearing about. It wants human blood and it has targets. I love the character development for this book and the overall series. Suzanne is becoming the woman she has always wanted to be and becoming like a mother to Jessie. We also get some great backstory for the chupacabra and some other surprise characters as well. I won't spoil, but you better make sure you have read the other two books first or you won't get the full affect.

     Overall, this is a fantastic read. I am very in love with this series and I am so excited for the next book. That ending left me speechless. Holy crap! Book 4 is going to be mindblowing, I can't wait. Hebler is such a talented author and it shows with every book. If you haven't started this series yet, what are you waiting for? You are seriously missing out. Must-read, plain and simple.

Author: Tima Maria Lacoba
Series: The Dantonville Legacy
Number in Series: 2
Release Date: May 31, 2014
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publisher: CreateSpace/Self-published

Synopsis from Tima Maria Lacoba
Bloodpledge continues Alec and Laura’s story from Bloodgifted. Having undergone the Ritual and induction into the vampire community, Laura— the prophesised Child of Light and Darkness and last of the Ingenii—takes her place as Alec’s consort and First Lady of the Brethren. But resentment and anger grow at Alec’s privileged position as daywalker.
Among a powerful few, alliances are made and conspiracies formed, threatening a war that could destroy them all and endanger every human on Earth—creatures who would do anything to prevent the curse from ending. Now Alec and Laura must invoke the Pledge, an ancient ceremony that enforces Brethren loyalty to the Principate.
When Laura’s ex-boyfriend, Detective Inspector Matt Sommers, turns up with a threat that could expose Alec, the battle for their world and their lives begins.

In Alec’s room, a single tall, metal lamp gave off a weak light. There were no windows to allow in deadly sunrays, so presumably it predated the time when he became Princeps. The four-poster, wrought iron bed and I were well acquainted, since we’d made love in it several times.
Alec wrapped his arm around my waist and held me close. With his other hand, he tucked my hair behind my ear. ‘We have a little over an hour before the Prefects start arriving.’
Let’s not waste it.’ Every minute with him was precious. Three nights ago, Jean-Philippe nearly murdered us both and, even though he was now dead, the danger was not entirely over—tonight’s incident a stark reminder.
He lowered his head and kissed me with a fervency that left me breathless. I wrapped my arms around his neck and kissed him back. Our tongues meshed in a delicious tangle of desire and passion.
What happened?’ I asked between kisses.
We had a disagreement ….’
I knew what he meant by that. ‘You had a fight.’
No avoiding it. Two of them are caged down in the cellar. Cal and Karl are keeping an eye on them till the Pledging.’
How many were there?’
Five—three men, two women.’
My stomach dropped. ‘You could have been killed!’
But I wasn’t.’
What if Luc hadn’t arrived—’
Shhh’, he sealed his lips over mine and, as always, I melted in his arms. A while later, he murmured against my mouth, ‘I probably could’ve handled it alone. After the Pledging tonight there should be no more incidents.’ His lips grazed my throat.
Cross my heart.’ He drew the figure of a cross over his heart. ‘Luc told you about the powers of the rings. If anyone tries anything, they’re ash.’
I nodded. After a previous rebellion, centuries ago, my father forced the surviving Brethren to swear an oath on the Serpent Rings. Those who defied it were killed when the rings flashed fire and destroyed them.
I didn’t want to think about it, let alone witness something like that.
Alec could probably see the anxiety in my eyes, for he smoothed the hair from my face and said, ‘The Pledge worked in the past. No reason why it shouldn’t do so again.’ His confidence was comforting and I released the breath I’d been holding. ‘Besides,’ he said, ‘Pledge or no Pledge, I’ll kill anyone who dares try and harm you.’ A deadly edge to his voice both frightened and excited me. He lowered his head, and took complete possession of my mouth with such passion it ignited a painful throbbing in my core that only he could relieve.
His hands slid down to my waist, untied my sash. Gently he eased my robe off my shoulders. It dropped to the floor, where my camisole soon joined it. He touched the crimson vial Luc gave me, which was nestled between my breasts. It contained three drops of Marcus’s, Antonia’s and Luc’s blood, and it would render the drinker immortal. ‘Luc explained?’
I nodded.
Would you take it?’
Yes.’ I breathed.
I couldn’t tear my gaze away from his eyes. They were filled with such love, such intensity of longing I almost wished the curse wouldn’t be lifted so there’d be no chance of my blood becoming normal. Yet, our children, the future….

For the last seventeen years I’ve taught English and History in a high school in southern Sydney. Before taking up teaching I was a practicing archaeologist, working on several digs around the world. Unfortunately, steady contracts in this field were hard to obtain, hence my gravitation to teaching. It was fantastic being able to teach my field to Year Eleven and Twelve students and then take them on overseas excursions to visit the amazing sites they’ve only seen in books.
Two years ago I resigned and surrendered to the itch of writing. After a many years of reading and correcting my students’ creative writing tasks and essays, I decided it was time to write my own. I couldn’t hold it in any longer.

Working Out by Marie Harte

“Hold on,” she called out and tossed off her blanket. She trudged to the floor in wool socks and peered through the peep hole. She froze. After a moment, she opened the door. “Yes?”

Mac Jameson stood in the communal hallway of the aging Victorian looking edible in jeans and a black leather jacket. In the hall lighting, his bright blue eyes glinted with some indefinable emotion.

“Here. These are for you.” He held out a bouquet of pink roses.

“Ah, what?”

The intensity on his face faded, and a smile took the place of his frown. “That is one ugly robe.”


He stepped forward and would have trampled her if she hadn’t moved back. Before she knew it, he’d entered her apartment and closed and locked the door behind him.

“Nice trick.”
“It’s called being persuasive.” He put the flowers in her hand and closed her fingers over the smooth stems.
“You brought me flowers?” Mystified, she didn’t know what to think. Was this another part of his nonsexual dating technique?
“You want them or not?”
“Yes, yes.” She hugged them to her when he moved to take them back. Flowers. When was the last time a man had brought her roses? “Such an ungrateful gift giver. Thank you. I love them.”
She turned and left to rummage in the kitchen for a vase. After she’d arranged and watered them, she put them in the center of her dining table. “So pretty.” She glanced up to see Mac right in front of her. “Mac?”
“Yeah. So pretty,” he rumbled and tugged her to him using her belt.
Her robe parted just as he planted a warm, hungry kiss on her mouth. Maggie could only kiss him back, caught up in an inferno of unfulfilled desire. Everything inside her hungered for the magic of a man who didn’t hesitate to take what he wanted.
He broke the kiss and ran his mouth down her neck. “What are you wearing under this?”
He tensed and pulled back. “Are you fucking kidding me?”
“I just took a shower.” She frowned, wondering what it took to break the man’s resolve.
“I am so screwed,” she thought she heard him mutter under his breath. In a louder voice, he said, “I came over to say hi. You’ve been avoiding me this week, and I wanted to make sure we were still good.”
“I was only keeping my distance from a crabby boss with control issues.”
“Yeah, about those issues… Thing is, I want to fuck you.”
“O-kay.” The man’s thoughts shifted like the wind. “And this makes you crabby because…?”
“Because what I want from you is a little different from what you’re probably used to. I want us to get to know each other better so you’ll feel okay about sleeping with me, my way.”
She caught her breath. “Spell it out. What exactly do you want me to do with you?”
“Everything I want, exactly the way I want it.” He tilted her chin up so that he could look straight into her eyes. “I want to play games with you. Ones where we need a safeword. Where you call me Sir and you obey me.” He kissed her again, and she felt her robe begin to open. Then his hands were inside, stroking her heated flesh. “I want to own your body in bed. Would you be willing to let me do that?”
“All this for some roses?” she replied while trying to make sense of her dreams suddenly meshing with reality.
He chuckled. “Nah. The roses were to show you I was thinking of you.” He cupped her breasts, and his eyes darkened. “But this is way more than I’d planned on asking for.” He fully parted her robe and stared down at her. Slowly, he bent his head and took a flushed, pert nipple in his mouth.
He sucked hard, and her knees buckled. She moaned and hung on to him for dear life.
Mac turned his attention to her other breast and teased and nipped until she teetered on an orgasm. She’d never been so sensitive before, but moisture coated the insides of her thighs.
“Yeah. This is what I want. You helpless in my arms.” He kissed her, his tongue penetrating while his hands moved down to cage her waist. “Maggie… fuck. I wanted to wait, but no more. I want you, but I’ll go easy with my demands.” He gripped her tight and kissed her again. “What do you think?”
She stared up at him when he pulled away. Her robe hung open, but he looked only at her eyes.
“I think… I think we should go back to my bedroom.” She tugged him with her, sure only that the time had come to finally have Mac Jameson. Tomorrow could take care of itself. Tonight belonged to her.
