It is from Conquest (My Vampire Lover #1) that is currently out.

Read the Snippet

MATURE ADULT CONTENT – These stories, featuring vampires and werewolves, are for mature audiences only. They contain adult language, violence, and strong sexual content including some light bondage situations. All characters depicted in these stories are 18 years or older, and all sexual activities are of a consensual nature.

Gently he ran his fingers across the side of my face.

I leaned into his large hand, unable to resist the sexual magnetism that made him so confident for a vampire.  My powers to fight him had steadily faded each night we made love.  I raised my chin, exposing the contours of my vulnerable neck to him, knowing it would please him if I finally surrendered.  “So be it,” I muttered.

“Even if you survive, they will kill us if I turn you.”  His fingers laced around strands of my blonde hair as it cascaded over the contours of my firm breasts.  He squeezed one of the nipples hard.

A low moan slipped past my lips.  “We could leave this place,” I whispered.  “Together.”

I immediately wrapped my hands around his cock.  He was hard as steel, yet smooth as velvet.  When he throbbed in my grasp, it sent me to my knees.

Slowly I took him in my mouth as I placed my hands behind my back, offering my complete obedience.  If it was to be my last night on earth, I wanted it to be perfect.  Surely the presence of the full moon would ensure a successful change.  But a vampire turning a werewolf?  Was it possible?

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

About Me

I split my time between being a stay-at-home mom and reading paranormal romance. I think good romance should make you purr while good steamy romance should make you scream, but in a good way of course. Because I love vampires AND werewolves, I wanted to write a series featuring both, and see what naughty situations they find themselves in. I’m currently writing a novella series called My Vampire Lover with a blend of paranormal romance, fantasy, and erotica featuring, you guessed it, vampires and werewolves.

If you liked this snippet and want to learn more about my novella series, My Vampire Lover, please visit my Amazon Author page at Amazon US or Amazon UK. If you stop by either Amazon page, please give it a Like. Thanks!

“Don’t hold back this time.  I will bite you when the Wolf comes for you.  Just tell me when.  You’ll be okay.  I’m here.  Taste my blood again.”

I felt his warm, wet tongue dart in my mouth, sucklingly my bottom lip.  A sting of pain surfaced.

I shrieked, quickly pulling away from him.

He held me fast in his arms.  Again I tasted the sweetness of blood, but this time it was my own.  Carefully, I licked my bottom lip where he had bitten me.  Our eyes locked.

A surge of ecstasy rocked through me, similar to the feeling I had had when I first met him under our terrible beginning circumstances.  I recognized it then, just as I recognized it now.  He was the other part of my being, the other half of my heart.  A very unlikely find in a non-werewolf creature outside my pack and outside my realm, but there he was.  And I knew it as I met his gaze.  His gaze devoured me.  My vampire lover.  My soul mate.  La mia ragione di vita.  My reason for living.

“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 magnificent cock 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.

We will be together.

I leaned my head back, exposing my neck completely.  “Do it.  Do it now.  He’s here!”

Answering my request, he pulled me into his embrace and sank his teeth into my neck.

I cried out, instantly thrusting myself upwards to meet his fanged kiss.  A flood of raw, electrifying sensations exploded inside me and multiple orgasms rocketed through my body.

He lifted me slightly off the bed and drank from me, holding me gently in his arms the whole time.

I pressed my back into his firm hands and focused on meeting his tempo as I rode him.  The room began to spin.  Blood trickled down my chest, running past my belly button and along the inside of my thighs.  A delightful shiver of fear passed through me as my vampire lover shuddered and came inside me.  I will be his.

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.
