WHEN LOVE AND HONOR IS LOST

Bomani escapes his Underworld home under a cloud of loss and shame into the realm of the living, a place he doesn’t belong.  Desperate to stay hidden from his family, Bomani agrees to track an exiler with strict orders to look but not touch.  The moment he encounters his mark, the Goddess of War, he knows he is damned to break the one order that is keeping him from facing his shame.

NOT ALL IS FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR

Exiled to the human realm over four thousand years ago with a stay of execution, Siya struggles to ensure that the good of humanity prospers despite the evil invading its core.  Memories of a forbidden love affair resurface when she is haunted by a dark warrior lurking in the shadows.  Fate has told her there are no second chances at love, especially when the next day may be her last.

Excerpt Soul Unbound

Chapter One Excerpt

Bomani turned away from the reality of his mistakes and the sorrow settling deep in his soul. He would not allow Bast to see his pain, let alone feel the extent of his losses.

His home. His legion.

Life as he had always known it to be.

No, he would do whatever he damn well pleased.

His gaze strayed to the Protector goddess who cuffed the god with venom laced restraints. Bomani had no sympathy for the criminal. Not unlike himself, the exiler had as much chance of escape as a half-swallowed rodent from a serpent’s jaws.

Bomani had whored himself out to the Creation Pantheon. Servitude, the price for staying in the human realm, a place an underworlder did not belong.

“Where is the Destroyer?” Bast grabbed the prisoner’s jaw.

Bomani was grateful Bast’s attention was focused on the exiler and not him. His head swirled and pitched so he feared he would pass out. The smell of blood filled the air, tightening the cramp of hunger in his chest. His gums burned and his fangs threatened to descend. Only days out of the underworld, and he was already succumbing to the effects. He needed to get out of here and find something to silence his hunger. A five course meal or a soul would do just fine. To cover his distress, he leaned up against the cold brick of the building and crossed his arms over his chest.

“I asked you a question,” Bast hissed and dug her nails in deeper.

Bomani had heard Bast ask the same question of the last five exilers. Either her interrogation techniques sucked or they did not know the mark.

The prisoner chuckled through a strangled throat. “Even if I had seen the Destroyer, I am more afraid of her than I am of you.”

Her? Bomani slid his gaze to the goddess.

Bast glared at Bomani from the side. “Useless, all of you.” With a snap of her fingers a portal opened behind the exiler. She shoved the god through the vortex.

Bomani shielded his eyes before the portal snapped shut in a bright flash. Bast’s face burned a bright red and her brilliant green eyes glowered at him. She wiped her hands down the front of her dress. The golden glow of her fury rippled out in waves of heat.

He shoved off the wall and trudged down the street, not waiting for her dismissal or her excuse why it was all his fault.

“Where are you going?” Bast’s protest chased after him.

“Getting lost.”

“I am not finished with you, warrior.”

He pulled the hood up over his head and pushed onward.

“Bomani!” Bast screeched, shattering the windows above him. The glass shards showered down around him, penetrating his coat and skin. Dusting off his shoulder he rounded the corner of the alley. A bright white flash greeted him along with the slam of her palms into his chest.

“Have you forgotten the order of things, Commander? You are in my house. Follow my rules.”

“You have your exiler,” Bomani snapped, hating to see her anger abated and replaced by a look that soured his stomach.

She smiled and raked her unholy gaze down the front of him. “You have yet to fulfill our agreement. Until then, I own you.”

“You know as well as I that cannot happen.” He snatched and squeezed her wrist.

She flinched. The frigid temperature of his skin warred with the heat of hers. She jerked lose. A red imprint, the size of his palm, outlined her skin.

“Not going to happen,” Bomani said, fisting his burnt white palm.

“There are no absolutes. Conditions do change and you have little choice in the matter, unless you want to go back and face your Lord, Asar.”

Shame weighed down on Bomani. He had failed his father and betrayed the very principles he had pledged his life to serve. Worse, his jealousy drove him to hurt the woman he claimed to love. The very reason among many that drove him to this world.

“Do you think me powerless? That I cannot absolve your curse?” She slid her hand against his chest.

Curse was an apt description of the so called law. He was relegated to hide in the darkest shadows. Daylight promised an unbearable pain he avoided at all costs. A clear message from the Creations—the dead were not permitted among the living.

“For millenniums the Underworld has been subjugated to your rules and you, a Protector god, can wipe that all away?” He shoved her hand off his chest, not wanting to believe she could do it. His honor would not save him. Only this fine thread of incompatibility separated him from falling deeper into shame.

“Bomani, you have no other choice. I will not let you remain here unsupervised,” Bast said and proceeded to stroke his chest. “I did warn you from the beginning. Kendra was made for Bakari, not you. I have offered you a new life and something enjoyable in exchange. You have nothing to lose.”

His disgrace had driven him out of the Underworld and into a new master’s hands. His soul ached in his chest, resolved in the fact Bast was correct about one thing.

He had nothing worth losing.

“Fine.” He grabbed her arm and pushed her back against the wall, wanting to get this torturous deed done.

Bast shoved him back. “No! It will be a time and place of my choosing. In the meantime, I have another mark for you to find.”

Fury burned hotter in his gut. The fickle odjit was playing with him, like a cat with a mouse. Would her demands never cease?

He thought not.

“Who is it you want now?”

“An exiler has been living among the humans, evading final judgment.” Her bright green eyes sparkled with a challenge. “I want to know who she is consorting with and why.”

“Who is the mark?”

“Who she is, is none of your concern. Do what I ask, and we will meet again to discuss your safe passage here.”

“What does the goddess look like, and where in duat do I find this criminal?”

“Her last known location was here in this city.”

He ruefully chuckled. New York had more hiding places than a corn maze. “This is a gods’ damn big city. Care to be a little more specific. Hair and eye color? Her glyphs?”

“She is the only god living among humans. She carries the brand of an exiler. You are a master tracker. Use that so-called skill of yours and find her. Do not make contact. Do not underestimate her. I want intel. Is that clear, Commander?”

“Yeah, sure.” He stalked past the goddess and down the trash littered street before his voice betrayed his last thread of decency. Honestly, he cared not, but it would buy him time. He had few options at this point, and it was wholly better than bedding Bast.

“Do not make contact,” Bast called out.

He raised his two fingers in a mocking salute. His life had not hit rock bottom—yet.

LOVE FOR BLOOD OR HONOR

Kendra, an Egyptologist and demi-god in waiting, is the key to unlocking Bakari, the Egyptian God of Death, from his cursed slumber. Desperate to free him, she inadvertently binds herself to the god with a spell that only death will undo. To save Bakari from himself, she may have to sacrifice her innocence, and possibly her soul, before he becomes his family’s worst enemy.

HAUNTED BY SINS OF THE PAST

Bakari awakens to a world at war and a beautiful woman who has tethered his soul to hers. In the wake of his self-destruction Kendra is his only hope of salvation, but another has vowed to keep Bakari from the one thing he craves most — his Parvana. His butterfly.

Reviews

Night Owl Reviews: Reviewer’s Top PICK/ 5 Stars (Abigail, Feb2013) : “I know other readers are going to love this series as much as I do. Get settled in for a thrilling paranormal tale.” http://www.nightowlreviews.com/V5/Reviews/Angibabi4-reviews-Soul-Awakened-by-Jean-Murray

Excerpt of Soul Awakened

Kendra commanded herself to march straight out the door. Enough of this bleeding heart stuff. If only she could take that next step toward freedom. She sighed heavily. Who was she fooling? She wasn’t going anywhere other than straight to his bed. Heck, she had bled, almost died, and ran naked into his frigid subconscious in less than twenty-four hours of knowing him.

She had no sense of self-preservation.

Bakari lay in the center of the enormous bed. The size of two kings put together. She couldn’t very well assess him from her vantage point. Climbing in bed with him uninvited caused her heart to flutter. What if Bomani walked in? How would she explain this?

Irritated with her thoughts, she stepped on the sideboard and hoisted herself on the thick plush mattress. The bed barely moved or compressed under her dainty weight. She didn’t want to wake him or least that was the plan.

Check on him and go. Yep.

Thankfully, he didn’t move as she crept closer on her hands and knees. His body contracted tighter and he shook his head against the covers. Maybe she could break the nightmare with a light touch. It seemed to lessen his pain before in his cell.

With her weight on her right hand and knees, she reached out and gently brushed his damp black hair out of his face. Surprisingly, it was soft and shiny now and all the white had faded. He must have washed it sometime before she arrived.

She moved her knees forward and sat back on her heels with her hands on her thighs. Too scared before to take in his features, she measured his face in an unrushed appreciation. His cheeks had filled out from last night. The muscles in his jaw twitched, as he clenched and unclenched his teeth in his sleep. His skin had warmed to an olive tone. Not bad for what little food he had eaten.

She traced the angle of his cheekbone to his full jaw with her fingertip. He had Asar’s facial structure. Her finger stopped at his chin. She mentally traced the line of his mouth. His lips were perfect in size and shape. She pressed her lips together and wet them with her tongue.

Startled, she snapped her gaze away. Why the heck was she wondering what it would be like to kiss him? She had really lost her marbles. A virgin, but not a saint? Bad girl, she scolded herself. Now as she looked at herself kneeling uninvited on a man’s bed while he slept, it seemed even dirtier. She needed to have her head examined.

Holding her breath, she placed her palms on the mattress and pushed away toward the edge of the bed. She was getting the heck out of here. Her toes breached the outer seam.

A low growl preceded large hands clamping on her shoulders and flipping her in the air. The ceiling and black silk sheets flashed in her field of view before her back found the mattress and her head flopped into the pillow. She yelped as Bakari’s hard male body pressed her firmly into the padding. In one hand he pinned her wrists above her head. Despite being severely underweight, his torso and pelvis heavily restrained her.

“Did you see something you did not like, Parvana?”

runaway couple

Enter Goodreads Giveaway – 2 Copies

The Run-Away Couple by Maggie Tideswell

It is said that the maid-of-honor and the best-man are the most likely to have sex on the wedding night. Add a love-hate relationship and throw a couple of ghosts into the mix, and you have the Run-Away Couple.

Eloise chose a Gothic themed wedding for her and Dane, complete with remote setting, flickering candles, flaming torches and shadows, all geared towards scaring the guests. The stormy weather and swirling mists were a bonus.

But the person most scared was the maid-of-honor, the bride’s elder sister, Piper. She didn’t do creep. And she had been lumped together for the night of the wedding with Marcus, the best-man and the bane of Piper’s teenage life.

He was a prankster of renown when they were growing up. As the boy-next-door, he singled Piper out for the best he could come up with. She didn’t trust him then and she didn’t trust him now. As the run-away couple, would they follow the traditional path? Or would Piper’s dislike and mistrust of Marcus win out?

The story of the ghost develops throughout the series and only in book 5 the full story behind the haunting is revealed.

Set in South Africa, The Run-Away Couple is the first book in a set of steamy romances about bridesmaids, weddings and honeymoons that will appeal to the young and the young at heart alike.

Book 2, He’s Married, will be available in August 2015.

About the book

Julie Keller relishes the simple things: hot chocolate on winter nights, good friends she calls her family, and her laid-back career as a massage therapist and yoga instructor. Julie is content with her life until Chase Rider returns to Bakersfield.

Bodyguard Chase Rider isn’t thrilled to be back in the town where he spent his childhood summers. His beloved grandmother passed away, leaving him a house in need of major repairs. With a three-week timetable and a lot to do, he doesn’t have time for distractions. Then he bumps into Julie, the one woman he hoped never to see again. Chase tries to pretend Julie doesn’t exist, but ten years hasn’t diminished his attraction to the hazel-eyed stunner.

When a stranger grabs Julie’s arm at the grocery store—a woman who insists Julie’s life isn’t what it seems, Chase can’t help but get involved. Julie and Chase dig into a twenty-five-year-old mystery, unearthing more questions than answers. But the past is closer than they realize, and the consequences of the truth have the potential to be deadly.

The inspiration behind Answers For Julie:

I often get my story ideas from watching crime documentaries, but the plot for Answers For Julie came together after I read some sobering FBI statistics in a magazine about the odds of a missing child coming home. Unfortunately, many children are lost forever. The wheels began spinning quickly after that, and a few weeks later, the story was well on its way.

I hope you enjoy Julie and Chase as much as I enjoyed writing them!  ~ Cate

Read an excerpt from Answers For Julie:

 She frowned, glancing in her rearview mirror when someone honked. Gasping, she cringed, bracing herself for a nasty impact as a car approached fast from behind. When the vehicle barely missed hers, she accelerated, making space for the bully to go around, but the navy blue BMW moved closer to her bumper.

She punched the gas, moving over to the final right-hand lane. The car sped up directly to her left, until the dark tint of the passenger’s window was even with her driver’s side. Julie pressed on her brake, slowing on the damp roads, hoping the car would move on, but it decreased its speed as she did. “What are you doing?”

Unsure of what to do, she jerked her rental toward the upcoming off ramp. The car followed, closing the distance between them, and rammed her back door, forcing her closer to the guardrail. She screamed, veering hard to the left, barely avoiding a collision with metal and a plummet to the busy road several hundred feet below.

The vehicle sped off as she slammed on her brakes and sat where she was, closing her eyes and gasping in several breaths. She flinched and screamed again, her eyes flying open as a red Camero honked as it swerved to miss hitting her.

Trembling, she accelerated to the bottom of the off-ramp, knowing that if she didn’t move she would cause an accident. She braked at the stoplight, her teeth chattering and her eyes darting around, on the lookout for the BMW. There was no way that was some random act of road rage. She could no longer claim that the instances in Massachusetts were a string of bad luck. Chase was right. Someone was trying to hurt her, and she still needed his help.

New Release: Modern Magics, Book 3 by Maer Wilson

Magics ebook 400x600

Magics, Modern Magics, Book 3

In Relics, the creatures of magic returned to Earth.

In Portals, magic itself returned.

In Magics, we’ll wish it hadn’t.

The laws of magic have become as real as the laws of physics, and humans with magical powers are becoming the norm.

But human magic is out of control – powerful, wild, unpredictable. Five ultra-powerful humans rise above the rest to begin a reign of terror, and entire cities fall. The elves and other Elder Races are desperate to find and stop these magical terrorists. But for the first time, the magic of the Elder Races is surpassed.

Thulu and La Fi join the hunt for the human supes causing the planet-wide massacres. With their own magic evolving and erratic, the race to catch the killers becomes far more difficult. They need to find them and stop the chaos before there is no world left to save.

Five Stars for The Modern Magics Series

The books trace what happens when magic returns to Earth, as seen through the eyes of paranormal detectives, Thulu and La Fi.

The Modern Magics Stories are set prior to the main events in Relics, Book1 and involve some of the couple’s more interesting cases.

The complete series can be found at Maer’s author pages at the following retailers and links:

Excerpt from Magics, Modern Magics, Book 3

The dead girl jumped as the series of explosions rocked our office. To tell the truth, so did Thulu and I. My husband and I exchanged a long look as the sounds of shrieking and groaning from metal and concrete giants shattered the morning. The time had come. My heart fell, and I felt tears threaten.

There were only those few moments of regret before the lights flickered and went out. The skylight allowed us to see each other, so Thulu and I moved quickly.

“This is it,” I said to Thulu, my heart pounding. I shook my head regretfully at our client. “I’m sorry. Things are going to be bad for a while. I’m not sure we will be able to take your case for some time.”

Blanche Nielsen sat in the chair before our desks, blond hair swinging as her head swiveled between the two of us. The look of alarm still on her slightly transparent face.

“What do you mean?”

Thulu snatched up Carter, our three-year-old son, from where he was coloring. Carter looked from Thulu to me, his small face showing alarm, but we had made sure to prepare him for this as much as we could. He didn’t say anything, just wrapped his arms around Thulu’s neck.

Thulu glanced at Blanche as he stuffed a few favorite toys into Carter’s messenger bag. “We’ve been expecting something to happen. You see, our whole solar system is moving through an area of space where magic has become real. Things are going to get crazy for a while.” He paused as he glanced around the office and shouldered the bag. “The dead should be fine, but we won’t be able to help anyone out until things settle down.”

During his explanation, I quickly grabbed our tablets and stuffed them into my own bag. I picked up our puppy, Treya, attaching her leash before putting her in the pet travel bag. In less than a minute, we moved to the back door, trailed forlornly by our dead client.

We moved smoothly, in spite of not having practiced our evacuation. However, our plan of action had been in place, and we knew what needed to be done.

We went through our small storage area, but it was dim without the skylight. At the back door, Thulu turned to hand Carter to me. My son’s arms went around my neck clinging tightly. I reached up to loosen them as Parker popped in, eyes huge with what I thought might be shock, but his jaw was clenched with determination. The young ghost had more substance to him than our new client. A client we might never be able to help.

“Be careful opening the door,” Parker said, just as the ghosts of my grandmother, Nana Fae, and Thulu’s mother, Mama Deb, materialized.

“How bad is it?” Thulu asked.

“Bad,” said Mama Deb at the same time Nana Fae spoke.

“Awful.”
