What dreams feel like...(with special preview)

With one book giveaway down, one ongoing and a few more to come, I'm honestly feeling good about this new career thus far. I've had the pleasure of working with the wonderful people at BookRix and they've been incredibly kind in helping to promote Cursed Secrets. Whatever events occurred that ended up bringing me down this path, I am truly thankful.

I've been steadily watching my Amazon stats rise, gaining a better following on Twitter & Facebook and connecting with so many readers on Goodreads. I am humbled by the kind words and excited that I'm sharing something I love with the world. Each day, I delve further and further into my dream.

It's definitely surreal to start from nothing and end up being a bestseller, no matter which platform it may be on. I wouldn't have thought in a million years that things would have happened this fast. I can't say I'm complaining, though!

As a means of saying thank you, I'm going to include a small excerpt from Binding Secrets, the sequel to Cursed Secrets that will be out later this year. The book cover is currently in development and will be released this summer for all of you to see and comment on :). 

“Do you want me to wait in the car?” he asked.

“No. I’ll feel better with you there, I think,” I answered hesitantly.

“Okay. Do you need a minute?” he grazed my arm with his fingertips lightly, sending a shock through my system.

I grasped the door handle, trying to steady the surge that threatened to overtake me. His breath caught, but he continued brushing my arm ever so lightly.

“Why are you torturing me?” I asked through clenched teeth.

“Perhaps I torture myself more,” he breathed into my ear. My heart skipped a beat.

“How do you figure?” I whispered while refusing to look at him.

“Because I feel what we both feel. Right now, it’s very hard not to act on those feelings,” he answered and leaned even closer.

“I thought you have remarkable self control,” I smirked.

Her lips were enticing. No matter how hard I tried to pull away, I was drawn closer in anticipation. I knew she had no idea what my feelings were, but she should. Yet the nagging fear left me reeling for a way to stop myself before I caused more damage.

“I try,” I breathed in her scent, effectively killing my resolve.

“Why?” she inclined her head toward me, still avoiding my eyes.

“I don’t want to lose you, Lia. I’ll admit I’m afraid, but only because The Council will see you as more of a threat if we are together. You have to realize my decision isn’t about my feelings for you. I promised I would do whatever I could to help. If saving your life means I can’t be with you than I don’t have much of a choice,” I turned her face toward mine, searching her eyes for understanding I desperately hoped I would find.

“Let me worry about staying alive. I haven’t been given the chance to make any decisions since this all started, Christian. You can try to make me feel better, but I know why you don’t want to be with me,” she whispered.

“You still think I don’t want you?” I tried not to show the pain.

“I’m not sure what to think sometimes, but it doesn’t change how I feel,” she watched me carefully.

“It’s very hard not to kiss you right now,” I ran my thumb softly across her bottom lip. “I dream about these lips.”
