INDIE-Kissing Blogfest, Giveaways, And FREE BOOK DOWNLOADS! WOO HOO!!!! It's a Party!


I am so excited to share so much goodness and LOVE today - and maybe a little bit of hawt kissing too!

First, today it the INDIE-Kissing Blogfest, hosted by the Indelibles. Participating is easy - just blog about something related to kissing (yum) and your in! For my post, I decided to share a never-before-shared kissing scene from Libera Me, book #2 in the Requiem Series.

This scene features the yummy Zane, who is in his angelic form, and the confused Nessa (he calls her Nesy) who is decidedly human. When I wrote the scene, I called it my "ghost" scene - those familiar with the movie "ghost" will likely be able to figure out why:

She threads her fingers through my hair, sending fresh currents of desire through me. “You are so familiar, so safe. I feel like we’ve known each other forever.”
“We have.”
Her eyes grow sad and I regret bringing up that life. I cup her face in my hands, feeling her tremble beneath my touch. Tipping her chin up, I stare into her blue eyes. “You’re everything I need, Nesayiel. Just as you are. You don’t need to remember another life, don’t need to be the person you once were. I love you as you are, today. Everything else will take care of itself.”
The minute the words leave I know I’ve crossed a line I can never undo.
Nesy smiles, pulling me closer. Her lip trembles as she draws a ragged breath. “I think,” she starts, hesitating. “I think I love you, too. Maybe I always have.”
I stiffen. My body quivering from her closeness. This can’t happen. Shouldn’t happen. And I’m powerless to stop it.
She flattens again me, brushing her lips against mine. My heart skips a beat and my legs buckle. Her touch is tentative, searching.
I can stop this now before it goes further. Nothing good will come from these feelings, my actions.
“Please,” she whispers as her fingers thread through my hair. “I need you.”
I let my eyes fall closed as she kisses me again, less tentative this time. My defenses break and I melt under her touch.
All the guilt and shame, gone.
The pain and suffering, gone.
There’s nothing but her touch and our feelings.
I pull back, breathless. My head swims.
Is this real?
She kisses me again. Nothing matters but her in this moment.
“Azryel's Wings,” I whisper, unable, unwilling, to stop.
I kiss her with an endless hunger. Time has no meaning. My wings tighten around us as the ground falls away and we are suspended.
No past or future.
No here or there.
Nothing but me and Nesy, locked in an embrace I want to last forever.
Our lips part and ripples of desire more intense than anything I could imagine shoot through me. I feel her body tremble in response and I pull back.
The separation rips a hole through me, creating an overwhelming loneliness. Nesy smiles, her eyes reflecting the heat, the need, I feel.
“Don’t go,” she whispers. “Please.”
We kiss again and again, lost in an embrace that changes everything.
Nesy is my future now. My only future.
She pulls back, her eyes wet.
“What’s wrong,” I ask.
“You can’t stay, can you? Not really. This is in my mind.”
“I’m here now.”
“But what about tomorrow?”
I pull her back to me. “Tomorrow doesn’t matter.” I pull her into a kiss that fuses use together.
She’s all I want, all I need.
She’s all that matters. For now.

  1. Great kissing, Christine, I like the way you've described a kiss with the reaction as opposed to what actually happened, lips touching etc. Nice one. Methinks I've learnt something about writing about kissing -- can only be a good thing in my book!

  2. OMGosh, you know how I feel about this book. My heart. My Zane. I mean Aydan has my heart, but Zane, he rips it from my chest!

  3. Love it! And what a great idea to offer it with a free download!

  4. This is sensual but also feels very sweet to me. Nice balance. :-)

  5. Great kiss!! Happy <3 day Christine. :)

It's Release Day!

Wow! This post was a long time coming. My 6th novel (and 17th book), OUTBREAK, book #2 in the Solomon Experiments, is officially out day.

This is a special release for me. I had struggled to find my fiction mojo after my last book. Related to what was going on in my personal life and some residual feelings about my mother's death, it took me nearly 2 years to reconnect with my inner artist. The struggle was worth it, though, as I figured out some things about myself as an artist that I needed.

Now, I hope all of you will enjoy the book as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

OUTBREAK is the continuing story of Dakota, an 18 year old girl wrestling with her new awareness of abilities that make her the target of a black ops group. Here is a little more about the story:

Dakota never thought she’d crave her old life in Boresville. Not until the Creator’s assassins came and took everything, everyone, she cared about—all except for David. He’s the only thing she has left, and he wants he…

Collide and Transcend in Audio Format

Wow - it has too long since my last post! A lot has happened over the past few months. First, I've decided to re-launch my entire backlist. What does this mean? New covers, new interiors, and, in some cases, new and expanded stories. It also means releasing the books in audiobook format. Audiobooks are something I've wanted to do for a while. And now it is finally happening.

In December, I released the audiobook formats of Transcend and Collide - each with new covers and new interiors in the digital and print versions. I plan on revealing the new covers for the rest of the Solomon Experiment series (the sequels to Collide) later this month, with the actual books coming in late Feb and March/April.

In Spring, I will begin the re-launch of the Requiem series, including significantly expanded stories for books 2 and 3, new covers, new titles and audiobook formats.

I don't plan on only re-releasing books in 2016. In addition to the two new books in the Solomon Experiments, I ha…
