Bad Son Rising Excerpt

Excerpt  
Britt Logan was a Stage Five clinger, but gave, quite possibly, the best head east of the Mississippi. The latter was the only reason Zac Moore tolerated her suffocating presence. Oh, and she did make nice arm candy, he'd give her that, although that was only of marginal importance to him.
Propped against pillows with his hands behind his head, he watched her head bobbing up and down, listened to her slurping sounds. In another time, another place, that would've gotten him so hot. The girl could suck like a Dyson, and yet, he had the urge to push her away and tell her to get the fuck out of his dorm room. But what the hell, he'd tolerate her until he came and then get rid of her.
Picking up his cell phone, he checked messages. Really wanting to know the scores on some games he had bet on, Zac was pleased to see he'd made a killing on a few of them as well as that he'd be collecting a shitload of money on the bets he took. As he became more engrossed in scrolling through the games, he became almost oblivious to Britt's sucking. Placing the phone on the bed next to him, he closed his eyes and attempted to clear his mind and concentrate. If he could concentrate it would be over soon and he could get on with his night.

Release Day Blitz - Fates Entwined by Caethes Faron

Synopsis
After centuries of searching, Lawrence has found the perfect person to help him birth a new race of vampires: Jocelyn, the girl he’s groomed to be the most powerful courtesan at the court of King James. All goes according to plan until Michael Barwick arrives at court and threatens everything.

Michael abandoned his life at sea in order to take his place as Baron Barwick after his brother’s death. Overwhelmed by his duties, he’s eager to leave court until Jocelyn sits across from him in a tavern. The intriguing woman soon has him opening his heart to her, and he’s prepared to fight for a place in her life.

Jocelyn’s desire for Michael, the one man who has ever fought past her professional façade to truly love her, threatens her independence. When Lawrence offers her the gift of eternal life, she must choose between the man she loves and the freedom she’s struggled for.

Fates Entwined is a prequel and is intended to be read after Haunting Echoes.

Excerpt
Chapter One

Lawrence admired the amber and gold music box on the parlor mantle while he waited for Jocelyn to join him. A delicate golden elephant twirled as tinkling music floated through the air. The superb craftsmanship impressed even him, and he wondered which of her clients had gifted it to her.

Lawrence noticed Jocelyn’s energy brushing against him, reaching out to him, before he heard her steps on the stairs. Her aura enveloped him in its warmth, the strength of its touch bringing a smile to his lips. The approaching young woman was unaware of the magnificence of her energy. Her ignorance made her all the more attractive, as did the fact that she was his. He had taken her raw talents and molded her into his most successful courtesan.

“Lawrence, sorry to keep you waiting.”

“Not at all, my dear.” Lawrence kissed her on each cheek then held her at arm’s length. “You didn’t have to doll yourself up for me.” Jocelyn’s dark blue dress with black lace trim brought out the shine in her auburn hair. A simple blue ribbon with a golden, heart-shaped charm accentuated her slender neck.

A young maid entered with a tea service. Without having to be told, she served Lawrence a cup with two lumps of sugar and a little cream. After handing Jocelyn her cup, the girl left as quietly as she’d come.

“How is Anne faring?” Lawrence blew on his tea. The maid was new to Jocelyn’s service and hoped to someday be a courtesan.

“Well enough. I don’t know if she’ll make anything of herself, but she’s pretty.”

“You should know that it’s not the looks that make the girl.” Jocelyn was beautiful in her own way, but there were plenty of women more attractive than her at court. Her eyes were hazel instead of the more desired blue, she refused to cover her auburn hair with fashionable blonde dyes or wigs, and her bosom was smaller than most men preferred in their paid company. But appearance could only take a girl so far.

“She’s eager to learn, but she lacks patience.” Jocelyn took a sip of her tea.

“If she’s not suitable, we can find someone else. There’s no lack of girls wanting to learn from you.” Lawrence’s tea was sweet, but it didn’t sate his thirst. He would need a real drink once he left Jocelyn.

“Let’s give her some more time. I’ve grown used to her.”

Lawrence nodded. “How was your night with the Marquess of Buckingham?” 

“George was wonderful, as always.”

She held something back. There was a way she held her mouth and eyes, as if trying to prevent her emotions from showing. It worked well on clients, but Lawrence wasn’t a client. A decade spent studying her as he’d raised and trained her had attuned him to her physical tics as well as her energy. “He offered to install you as his official mistress, didn’t he?”

Jocelyn sighed as she placed her teacup on the table and faced Lawrence. “Yes, he did.”

“And you weren’t going to tell me?”

“Why would I? I have no intention of accepting.”

Of course she didn’t. She would never give up her independence to anyone. Lawrence exclusively held her strings. “Still, I should think something that momentous would warrant at least a mention.”

“He knew what my answer would be. If I’d accepted, he would have lost interest. My refusal didn’t appear to dampen his affection. He’ll be here next Tuesday. I’m entertaining a few people to discuss The Pennylesse Pilgrimage by John Taylor.”

“Good. I’ll put it on the calendar. Now, why are you looking so desirable tonight?”

“I was thinking of going to King’s Head.”

“You don’t have to go looking for business at the inn, dear. You’re more than welcome to take the night off. You have a masquerade the day after tomorrow.” It was no surprise that she was eager to exert her independence after having it threatened. The Marquess was a good man who genuinely cared for Jocelyn. He might even love her. He would have seen his offer as security for Jocelyn, but she would only see it as another man trying to control her. She had Lawrence, and he had done a good job of convincing her he was all she would ever need.

“I know, but it’s fun. I promise I won’t overwork myself. You need to stop worrying, Lawrence. I’ll be fine. I enjoy the change of pace away from court.”

“Then have fun. You’ve earned it.”


•••


Lawrence licked Jane’s neck, his mouth watering in anticipation. A gentle pressure in his mouth released his fangs. The razor sharp teeth sank into Jane’s skin, releasing the warm flow of blood. Thicker than water, sweeter than wine, it slaked his thirst. The warmth brought life. Stolen life.

Lawrence released her neck. Jane was one of his favorite whores. While Jocelyn’s success afforded her a private residence, his other girls lived in the brothel, servicing the crowds Hampton Court Palace drew. Lawrence had his own home, but he was rarely there. He preferred to make use of his suite in the brothel, where he could keep an eye on his girls and the comings and goings. He didn’t mind Jocelyn’s independence. He wouldn’t dream of using her services himself. She was too important to him.

Lawrence kissed along Jane’s breasts until he reached the other side. As always, his victim was unaware of his actions. The venom in his fangs masked the pain. Jane would only feel a light pressure and sucking sensation. Nothing out of the ordinary in her line of work. He descended once again on her neck, taking a little more.

Once Jane finished him off, sating more than just his thirst, she swayed drowsily to her room. Lawrence rose. For him, a bed’s only purpose was fucking. He had not slept in more than two centuries. He sauntered to the bookshelf, trying not to think of what he couldn’t have. Selecting the most recent medical treatise, he situated himself in his worn armchair to read.

It took effort to concentrate on the words in front of him. Jocelyn was almost ready. He longed to feel her blood on his lips, sliding down his throat, to taste its tangy sweetness. But it wasn’t feeding he craved. No, the feeding would only be a precursor. She would be shocked by the truth of his existence, but he didn’t doubt she would join him. He would pour her blood back into her. Mixed with his venom, it would transform her into a vampire. His first daughter.

Dragonflies - The Duncan Peters Files

The Duncan Peters Files was a brilliant read. I thoroughly enjoyed the journey I took with Duncan and his best mate Rubin (yes, I am British now). The book follows the two through their years, with a beautiful story of love, loss, and friendship (with a lot of hot sex in the mix too). 

I fell head over heels for these two military men. Their friendship was just amazing to read about. The ups and down they each had (especially Duncan, I was completely heartbroken for him) were written so well, I felt the words. Don’t worry, it isn’t all sad… there are some funny moments that made me laugh, a lot of hot, smexy scenes that made me weak in the knees and in need of a cold shower, and even some action pack scenes that made me sit on the edge of my seat! 

This is a great story of brotherhood and true love. I was very impressed with the writing (especially the fact that it was not an U.S. based story) some of the British slang was a little hard to follow at times, but the story is so well developed, that it did not affect the outcome. I definitely would recommend this book and am looking forward for book two in the Dragonflies Series.

Dragonflies - The Rizzo Protocol


I am fan of the Duncan and Rubin from The Duncan Peters Files… but I am absolutely woman crushing on Rizzo from The Rizzo Protocol and Fergal… OMG! We are first introduced to Rizzo’s character in the Duncan Peters Files – book one of the Dragonflies series. She was a young computer hacker that Duncan and Rubin took in. Through the years she became family to them and worked right alongside them at their security company. She’s the kind of woman that tells it like it is, but she isn’t all the bada$$ she tries to come off as. Rizzo definitely holds back in the love department. She had a relationship with “the one” and it ended badly, so now she likes her sexual relationships with no strings attached. The problem is, working all the time for the security company; she sometimes has to dip her pen in the company ink ;) 

After an awakening, Duncan asks Rizzo takes over control of his share of company so he and Simone can try things again. While Rizzo makes a protest, she relents and steps up for Duncan. You know what that means, no more office sexcapades and a complete makeover and wardrobe to make her more corporate friendly. Oh, and of course security detail. Enter Fergal – “the one” from her past. Wow, can I just say… Military men get my blood flowing. I love the twists and turns and ups and downs of the story and of course the hot, smexy, scenes. 

Samantha does not disappoint in the second installment of this series. I was completely engaged in the story and loved every chapter. I can’t wait to read more form Samantha. 4.5 stars!

MeetTheAuthor

I'm a Happily Married, MUM of 2 very loved children. One is a teenager… so far (fingers crossed) a great one.

I LOVE Music… I should do as I am the daughter of Musicians; I was reared with a Guitar in one hand and a pen in the other.
I'm originally from London and am now living somewhere, in the Irish countryside, with cows (the four legged kind) as neighbours. We live on a small farm in a village (no I do not DO milking or anything farmy… I have nails lol).

I’ve had the big high-flying career and gave it and London. up for ‘LOVE’ (yep sucker lol) and would do it again a hundred times over to marry and have babies.

I have lived in Ireland for the last sixteen years and I love the peace and quiet that we have here, it’s a wonderful place to raise children. I do NOT own wellies (gumboots) as the city girl that is still trapped in me, won’t allow it… SO… I wear riding boots instead. I may actually be the unofficial Imelda Marcos of Ireland with the amount of shoes I own (insert Shoegasm here).

I began writing professionally in January 2013 and now I’m releasing my fourth book. I write fun, naughty, not so hearts and flowers stories. My all time favorite writing hero is Clive Cussler. I love action and suspense, which probably influences my own writing greatly; hence I’m NOT a hearts and flowers kind of girl.

I love humour and try to use it as often as I can in any situation… I think life is too short to NOT try anything new. I’m a fun, loyal person and believe in Karma, so I try to treat people how I would like to be treated… after all, it takes much more to be nasty to someone rather than just to be nice…You can contact me at Google+: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+SamanthaFontien
