Synopsis:

Twenty-two year old Faren Mitchell hears the two words that change her abbreviated life forever. They’re so final Faren decides she has nothing to lose by seizing every remaining moment of what life has to offer.
Until Faren collides with a motorcycle ridden by billionaire Jared McKenna.
Even the dark secret of her past and catharsis as a physical therapist can’t save Faren from the sexual spiral that waits for her in the arms of a man who commits to no one. When circumstances force her to get a second job as an exotic dancer, Faren never imagines how close that choice will bring her to the brink of a new reality she is unequipped to handle.

“Love sears the heart immortal
The embers of love burnt down to the token which remains ....”

Tuesday Teaser: THE SAVAGE PROTECTOR!

Hi Readers, here's another teaser as PROTECTOR continues to wind toward a taut ending. There's a lot going on so those of you that dig the Blood series will be kept on your toes!


Check out this excerpt taken from a scene I wrote a couple days ago.


“Do not think of postponing our joining,” Matthew said, pressing a soft kiss under the silken flesh of her ear and Clara shivered, Matthew's body responding to the delicate trembling of her need that matched his own. “It will always be tumultuous, ruling this many, with the climate of this new world changing all around us. It is I who wishes to hold the burden alongside you. It should not be your struggle alone.” 

Matthew kissed Clara again, moving her hair with his large hand, he began to kiss a trail like a necklace of invisible pearls across where the top of her neckline met the swell of her neck. She groaned as he swung her around and took her mouth.

The invitation fluttered to the ground as Matthew assaulted her worries with his lips and stole the sounds of Clara's passion from her mouth.

Her hands wound around his neck, but not tied there for his height precluded it. Clara lifted her mouth from his and dove back, dotting a solid kiss on his full lips. “You are right.”

“I hear hesitation,” Matthew said, licking under her jaw with alternating pecks and small nips that caused her breath to come faster and his hands went to her narrow ribcage. He held Clara still while he worked back and forth under that delicate line that ended with her chin.

Clara just nodded, unable to speak as her head tipped back to give him better access. His kisses felt like the silken wings of butterflies, soft, insistent-- perfect. They made a physical longing take up residence inside her and Clara could not contain what she did next, a half climb of one leg against the outside of his hip, her skirt falling away. Matthew never paused, taking the leg that rode his thigh and lifting her up with a palm at her behind, as her other leg wound itself around his back.

“Clara,” he inhaled sharply. “You make it so I cannot wait for the joining.” Or think, he added to himself.


Clara gave a soft chuckle into his mouth, grabbing his smooth face, his dark gold hair swinging forward like a curtain to shroud their passion. “I know,” she replied and moved to his mouth again....

*

I have a big twist for PROTECTOR in the works but I won't lie, Matthew and Clara will be joined in this work, with a few other couples in the mix and the Fragment and neighboring spheres causing all kinds of interesting occurrences... as usual.

When PROTECTOR wraps I'll begin on THE REFLECTIVE for a March release, then on to the first book of the Death Trilogy with BLOOD REIGN thrown into the mix. It's a busy year for 2014!

Thursday Teaser Torture! THE SAVAGE PROTECTOR....

Hi Readers! I'm marking the moment here... TSP is at 50% and I'll be tipping over the halfway mark today. I think it's high time I offer a little teaser to whet the whistle of Savage lovers...
Heavy Duty Guys ;)

Clara burst into the throne room, Olive at her heels and was shocked to see Charles rise from the right hand of King Otto.

“Clara!” Charles exclaimed loudly, many expressions alight in his face. The one she wished to see most was there as well. Thank Guardian.

King Otto stood, wrinkling his nose, no doubt as to her unseemly attire, smell and entry. “Clara,” he said, his brows slowly rising and Clara seethed at the sight of her father's crown atop his head.

“You insufferable beetle,” Clara hissed, striding forward at her own peril, she climbed the dais before she was aware of it, striking the jowly king across the face and tearing off her father's crown an instant after her palm fell.

He was so shocked by her behavior he spluttered about for a response.

“Do not bother with a worthy rebuttal or otherwise. You shall be escorted forthwith and expunged from my sphere this moment.”

Clara looked at Charles and he called out, “Guards!” They had been at the western exit and not seen or heard her entry. Sometimes Clara lamented the improper sound penetration afforded because of the dense wood of the doors....

*

Remember how some of you weren't sure if Clara could bring it? If she had the mettle?

Yeah. Put that all to rest... she sure does. lol

*

Tears of joy are never weak, but the strongest ones of all....


*Still on track for a stellar finish by Dec. 30 to keep my January 20, 2014 deadline! I no longer have tickers but check at the Savage page to keep up with my progress...

Thank you xo

Get to Know Dannika!




This is the segment where you learn a little more about who I am, so here's what I can tell you:  I drink copious amounts of vitamin water placed precariously close to my laptop while writing. These are two healthy habits I have no intention of breaking. I'm a transplant living in the south, but I was born in the 70's to a military dad who moved us around the world.

When I'm not writing (which is all the time), I'm hunting down Indie music, watching movies, reading, eating Tex-Mex, discovering new ways to humiliate myself bowling, and burning up my laptop battery on the Internet. I have a relaxed, easy-going personality and don't like drama. I live with a cat who thinks she is a dog, or a goat (she eats plastic, so I'm not sure which).

Throughout my life, I've had insomnia. Counting sheep never worked and eventually I would imagine those sheep were the sole source of food after an apocalyptic battle where only thousands survived. I made up stories in a futile attempt to bore myself to sleep. The problem was, I got so wrapped up in my "head stories" that I would continue them through the following nights, changing it up each time to make it more exciting. Eventually, I started writing my ideas down - creating short stories, and then I discovered my love for poetry.

It's almost embarrassing how many spiral notebooks and stacks of paper I have of poetry and lyrics. 

Another passion: digital art. I design all my book covers, marketing, and series art. I'm a very visual person and pursued photography as an avid hobby for many years. 

I am not a YA author (I feel like I have to state this only because I've had a few people ask), but I think it's wonderful there are so many books available to teens in Urban Fantasy and Paranormal.  

I am finally doing what I have always wanted to do: giving my characters a pulse through writing full time. I focus on adult urban fantasy romance, but I don't like labels and I enjoy blending genres to break out of the confines of predictability.

But it's what I love to do.
