Excerpt from Conquest (My Vampire Lover #1) by Victoria Embers – Free at Amazon

For MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY

“You complete me,” he said.

I traced the outline of his square jaw and rested the tip of my finger in his cleft of his chin.  “La mia ragione di vita,” I replied in the language of Fanged that he had taught me over the past few months, meaning ‘my reason for living.’

Another gleam from the moon shone upon his face, his bright eyes sparkled with a savage knowledge beyond lust and desire, one of sheer hunger.  He would be mine.

Before I could stop him, he slashed at his well-toned chest with his nails.  Lines of blood formed across his muscles.

“Drink of me.”

Then he resumed making love to me fiercely, refusing to stop.

I stared at the streams of blood rolling down his chest as I rode him.  With only a few thrusts from my vampire lover, the Wolf in me instantly awoke.  Warm rushes of power and hunger rose up in me.  The Wolf was coming for me and I wouldn’t be able to deny him.

“Let it go,” he whispered.  “Drink of me.”

The moon bathed him in its lush glow and I couldn’t resist marveling at his naked form.  He was exquisite.  His thick, muscular chest glistened with blood and sweat and I held on to his shoulders as I drove my hips down upon him, feeling his magnificence surge deep inside me.  Each stride I took sent me ever closer to him forever.  I took his mouth with a savage intensity I had never known and then I lavished my kisses upon his chest, licking his blood and sweat in long, broad laps.

EXCERPT

The following excerpt is from Conquest (My Vampire Lover #1) – FOR MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY. Learn more below.

“Take me please,” I demanded, glaring up at the ceiling.  I slammed my arms into the bed, grabbing the satin sheets tightly in my grasp.  I arched my back upwards to him.  “I want to be with you forever.” Conquest (My Vampire Lover Part #1)

“With all your heart?” he asked.

Wrenching my hands together, he held them before him.  His eyes glowed, fierce.

The palms of my flesh grew numb and I froze.  In his darkened bedroom where I spent my days alone and confined, I could only hear his threatening voice.  Being with him every night was what I lived for.  I longed to be his one true love.  It didn’t matter that I was different than him.

“Yes, I want to be yours forever.”  I pulled my body to his, forcing myself off the bed as difficult as it was to do.  His hands bit into my wrists, but the pain didn’t matter.  “I’ll forsake everything to be with you.  Have I not proven that to you time and time again?”

“You have no idea what you’re asking me to do.  Drinking my blood is one thing, but turning you…”  He released my hands and I sank down again into the soft bed.

Immediately I felt his touch return.  I closed my eyes, savoring the moment.

His touch was light and deliciously teasing.  He spread my legs and took his time sliding his fingers down my stomach.  Pausing at the entrance just above my sex, he ran a fingertip around the small triangle of hair.  Then he slid two fingers inside me, instantly finding my clit with his thumb.

“You’re so wet,” he whispered in my ear.  “Perhaps you speak the truth.”

“Yes.”  I groaned, grinding my hips against his hand, letting my body become his as he sent his fingers into me.  I was willing to do anything to please him.  I dug my fingernails into his strong back, feeling the skin loosen slightly under my fingertips.  The warm, wet stickiness of his blood covered them.

“Yes, that’s it,” he growled.  “You want more?”

He slapped me hard on the thigh, growing more aroused.

I fell into the sheets of the bed, feeling a delicious tinge of electricity radiate down my leg.

Crouching above me like a tiger, he immediately reclaimed me.  He pulled me from the bed, whirled me around, and wrapped his arms around me possessively.  His fangs brushed the side of my shoulder.

Momentarily I winced in shame when I realized my shoulders had dropped forward like a coward.  I was shaking.

Suddenly he grew very still.  “I’ll release you, if you like.  And this will all be over.  If I turn you, we’ll surely go to war.  Do you understand?”  His breath was hot on my shoulder.

Gathering my strength, I locked myself into his embrace.  My head fit perfectly in the hollow between his shoulder and neck.  I settled back, enjoying the feel of his strong arms around me.

He traced his fingers down the outer curves of my body.

I could feel his heavy breathing on the back of my neck, as he held me close.  Then putting a large hand to the front of my belly, he drew me to him.

“But I can’t lose you,” he whispered in my ear.

I shuddered beneath his touch.  To be his forever.

From Ally: “It has been over a year since Part 3 – A Vampire on Vacation was published in July 2012.  Since then I have not released anything related to this series.  That’s a startling, and sobering fact, for me – even for my readers maybe– because for many months last year, I did not know if I’d return to writing this series.  I didn’t know if I’d keep writing at all.

With that being said, I have returned to the keyboard and will be releasing “The Vampire from Hell Returns (Part 4)” next month on Oct. 20th. (Join the Facebook Release Party.)  I’m very excited to continue Rayea’s story, at least for three more installments, and I’m delighted to say that, for bad or worse, I’m past the first obstacle I encountered during my first year of writing.  And I’m not looking back.  It may not always be smooth sailing from now on, but that’s okay because I’ll keep sailing.  I’m hoping many of you will join me for the ride.”

Read An Excerpt

This excerpt features Ashton Taylor, the human actor Rayea (my vampire heroine) falls for. I based Ashton’s character on Aidan Turner. Enjoy! ~ally

Even though I recognized it, the voice surprised me and made me jerk, but I recovered quickly and hid my fangs.  As a sign of trust, I had given Ashton the key to my house.  It probably wasn’t the best idea I had had, but I rarely said no to those laughing brown eyes of his.

“Who’s home free?”

“Hey you, I didn’t see you standing there.  You scared me.”  Ignoring his question, I waltzed over to Ashton and gave him a hug.

“I was expecting you to be in bed.  I was going to surprise you.”  He kissed me along the left side of my neck.

“Oh really?” I giggled, knowing he wasn’t kidding.  Quickly I wiggled out of his grasp and turned on a few lamps.

“Would you like some tea?” I asked as I retreated to the kitchen.

Many would consider me the luckiest girl alive to have Ashton Taylor, the actor who played the vampire, Ron Maxwell in the popular TV show, Blood Realm standing in my living room.  He was tall, dark, handsome, and, at the same time, incredibly witty, sexy, and charming.

As he slipped off his trademark chocolate leather jacket and placed it on the glass coffee table, he flashed me one of his devastating smiles and snagged the latest issue of People magazine.  I admired his crisp white T-shirt and black jeans, realizing Ashton had no imperfections when it came to his body.  My new form of ‘Tayloring’ had become watching him lounge around my home when he wasn’t filming.  I enjoyed the way he intently read a script or magazine, how he tucked his hair behind his ears when he was nervous, or that sparkle in his eyes when he silently observed my movements, thinking I didn’t notice.  With my bloodlust and heightened sexual appetite, having him in my lair was a time bomb waiting to explode.  And I loved every minute of it.

“You’re not making tea, my love.  You’re making an ice pack for your head, aren’t you?  Do you find me that repulsive?” he asked.

“Don’t be silly,” I called out.  “I’ve just had a long day.”  Four months of dating and he knew a lot of things about me.  And yes, an ice pack did break my fever sometimes.  It helped me control my thirst.  It didn’t work every time, but tonight it was worth a shot until I heard his comment.  Instead I reached for a box of green tea, filled a cup with water from the sink, stuck my finger in it until it boiled, and dunked the tea bag in.  Being a vampire with pyrokinetic abilities had its perks.

Your last night on Earth?  And you don’t want this man?  His blood, his delicious, warm blood flowing down your throat?  Don’t be silly, love.”  The voice inside my head finally added in its two sense worth.

I swore under my breath.  “Shut up,” I growled at the voice.

From the time I had met Ashton at a bookstore near Chinatown, I had been one love sick kid.  He had paid for my copy of Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice and we quickly discovered we had a lot of things in common, one being vampire fiction and folklore.  He enjoyed hearing my ideas about vampires and I loved sharing my ‘notions’ as I called them.  “You realize I’m just guessing here, but if I were a vampire, I would…”  That’s how I’d lead in with most conversations we would have about his character’s motivations.  Ashton made me feel like I was an expert on the subject, despite the fact that the more I learned about my being a vampire, the less I really felt like I knew.

Once I got to know Ashton, I realized he was just a person.  He didn’t want to be some Adonis sitting on a high pedestal.  He was fine with being a guy and hanging out with a few close friends at the bar.  He didn’t like his growing fame or being stalked by fans.  He was polite when he gave autographs, but he said it gave him the creeps to see how the women lusted after him.

I tried my best to not lust after him once I understood his feelings. 76554_523042787750388_2004891285_n

“They think I’m just a sex symbol, eye candy, you know?” he had said.  “I don’t want to be like that.  I want to be taken seriously as an actor.”

With all my concentration, I tried to focus on our conversation, those types of conversations.  Honestly, I tried.  But when he looked at me with those big brown eyes, I melted into a bumbling idiot, and I usually would just nod and smile at him, mentally reliving our last night of love making.  Obviously I had no idea why being that hot was a problem for him.  He was a vision.  Lynn privately referred to him as ‘sex on a stick incarnate.’ Even though I’d never share that label with him, it was true.

When Ashton finally agreed to give Lynn permission to run his fan club, he won us both over.  Lynn knew I was taken with him, but she agreed with me.  “He’s a sweet down-to-Earth guy.  Not at all like what I thought he’d be.  His character is so different on the show,” she had said.

“He’s not a ruthless vampire in real life, is he?” I had teased her, knowing that her image of who the actor played and who the actor really was had been destroyed forever for her.  Lynn had always wanted to meet Ron, the vampire, not Ashton, the actor.  I knew she was disappointed, but she did a good job getting past it.  As it was, she enjoyed managing his fan site and had impressed Ashton with her marketing strategies that had increased the site’s popularity while also impressing our other online friends with being the first to post the latest pics of Ashton ‘around town.’

Recalling Blick’s comments about Ashton continued to haunt me.  We had argued a month or so ago about him, and then his email that he had sent, it was dead-on.  I couldn’t help myself and I certainly couldn’t resist temptation.  Ashton was the ultimate temptation for me.  Blick had said he was my kryptonite, and I hated to admit it.

Excerpt from “Conquest: My Vampire Lover (Part 1)” – FOR MATURE AUDIENCES, 18+

As I lavished the taste of him, moving up and down on his shaft, he spread his toned legs wider, slightly bending his knees.

I forced him further into my mouth, letting the tip of his head tickle the back of my throat.  With each long stroke of my sucking, I devoured him whole-heartedly.

“You are eager tonight.  Aren’t you?” he asked as he pulled me up off my knees, holding me firmly in his masculine arms.

He shoved me into the bed and pinned my body against his.  Letting his gaze penetrate mine, he stared at me and released his fangs.

A gasp escaped my lips.  “Yes,” I whispered.

He lowered his head and kissed the inside of my neck.  Quickly I felt the sharp edge of his fangs tracing the places where he had kissed me as his hands explored my breasts.  Gently he ran his fangs along the contours of my shoulders and chest.

Shivers of warm ecstasy rippled through me.  To be his forever.

“Take me please,” I demanded, glaring up at the ceiling.  I slammed my arms into the bed, grabbing the satin sheets tightly in my grasp.  I arched my back upwards to him.  “I want to be with you forever.”

“With all your heart?” he asked.

Wrenching my hands together, he held them before him.  His eyes glowed, fierce.

The palms of my flesh grew numb and I froze.  In his darkened bedroom where I spent my days alone and confined, I could only hear his threatening voice.  Being with him every night was what I lived for.  I longed to be his one true love.  It didn’t matter that I was different than him.

“Yes, I want to be yours forever.”  I pulled my body to his, forcing myself off the bed as difficult as it was to do.  His hands bit into my wrists, but the pain didn’t matter.  “I’ll forsake everything to be with you.  Have I not proven that to you time and time again?”

Excerpt from Zombie Wolf: The Next Generation #1 (Ally Thomas) – YA Paranormal Romance

Crossing her legs again – left knee over right and then right knee over left – she couldn’t get comfortable.  “I’m not human.”

“What are you then?” I asked.

“I’m were.”

“What do you mean?”

“Whatever, dude.  Werewolf, you know.”  She flicked her long blond hair over her shoulder and then gathered it up into a ponytail and started playing with it.

I wanted to bury my head in her thick hair.  I’d never seen such a honey blond hair color, except maybe on some of the fledglings of the vampire angel, Michael.  All my kind had the ‘dark look’ as we call it.  Both my mom and dad, a vampire and a werewolf had black hair and dark features.

“That’s not what my family calls it,” she retaliated.  “It’s just being ‘were’.  I haven’t gone through the change yet, so technically I’m not…”

Before she could finish her sentence, she started convulsing.  Her blue eyes rolled up in her head.  This was not going to be easy…at all.

I rushed to her side.  Of course, she was oblivious to my movements, but I knew I had to keep her from getting away from me or leaving my room.  It was my only chance.  It was her only chance.

I wrestled with her, finally pinning her into the large recliner.  “Hold still,” I shouted.  Christ, I don’t even know your name, I thought.  The realization stabbed into my heart.  How fucking sad, I said to myself.

“How fucking sad, is this?” I asked her as she thrashed about.  At times, her long hair covered her face.

She growled at me.  Viciously.  Sadistically.  When she threw her head upwards, I saw the demon virus surface in her white eyes.  She struggled against me, biting, snapping, heaving her head, the only part of her body she could move, at me.  A faint smell of roses hit me.  Strawberry shampoo, I wondered.  I’ve got to at least know your name.

Suddenly visions of my demonic aunt flashed before my eyes.  The stories my mom and dad had told me.  The images I had seen myself, in my nightmares.  The snakes.  The hounds.  The pits.  The pain.  The torture.  The sacrifices.  It was the origin of the new virus, the one I had feared my entire life would finally arrive, the one passed on to me when my demonic aunt had bitten my mother when she was pregnant with me.  Succumbing to it and becoming one of them was Hell for human, werewolf, vampire, or zombie.  The virus didn’t play any favorites.  Somehow my mother survived and I was born mostly normal.  It didn’t affect me.  Well…sort of.

About Zombie Wolf

At twenty-four Zachary has been through many zombie outbreaks and knows how to stay alive. He’s been so good at killing zombies for so many years that he makes a living at it. He claims it’s the reason he has the nickname the ‘Zombie Wolf,’ even though he knows that’s not the case.

With time and space travel being as common as the Internet and cell phones, Zachary and his team travel often to kill zombies and rid the solar system of total infestation. Now in the year 3015 A.D., more sightings of zombies are being reported on Planet Earth, but no one knows how to kill these snake-like creatures. Zachary’s destiny unfolds when he comes face to face with the next generation of zombie and an innocent bystander gets bitten. He considers killing the attractive girl because she’s as good as dead anyways. But when he sees she has a werewolf mark, same as what he has, he knows he must save her.
