Welcome to My Sexy Saturday, the weekly blog hop that showcases a little of the participating authors work, whether seven words, sentences, or paragraphs.
Thanks for joining me after my break. For my offering this week, I am teasing you all with a sneak peak into my upcoming Christmas novella, Cole in his Stocking, which will be released with EXtasy Books on the 15th of December.
Cole couldn't hear the pounding footsteps anymore, but that didn't mean much. When you were being chased by creatures that could use portals, it didn't matter where you went, they could, would, find you anywhere.
His feet had long since become numb, but Cole certainly wasn't complaining. The dull burning chill was a far better option than the excruciating pain each step had caused before the cold had set in. When it wore off, he knew he might regret no longer caring what he stepped on. But then again, Cole doubted he would be alive long enough for that to happen. When you pissed off Gerard Gantry, he made sure you never made the same mistake twice, and he made no exceptions...not even for his own son.
It doesn't matter if he's been naughty or nice all year. Adam's stocking is still getting stuffed full of Cole, this Christmas.
The coming of age for any vampire is cause for celebration, a time when they first taste blood. For Cole, however, his twenty-fifth birthday brings a terrible choice from his father—either he takes the life of another to prove his worth, or he forfeits his own life. Cole chooses the only way his heart will allow, and pays the price with both his fangs and the rapidly mounting blood starvation that will slowly end his life, now that his body needs to feed, but cannot. He escapes, bleeding, barefoot, and wearing nothing more than a simple cotton sleep-shirt. With his father's sentinels in pursuit, Cole soon finds himself half-frozen and unable to run anymore. The last thing he expects when he crawls into a dumpster to hide away for the last few hours of his life is to be rescued by a temperamental black cat and...aww hell...his cherished one, Adam. How is Cole meant to blood-bond to the wolf hybrid when his time is fast running out, and he has no fangs to even try? He quickly learns his cherished is far more than he appears, though, and Adam's friends at the Delta Rehabilitation Centre have even higher friends, with a score to settle with his father, of their own. It's just a shame he won't be around long enough to witness their payback.
