Sex, Drugs, Rock n’ Roll… and Murder

Toshiro Matsuda, a tenacious Japanese inspector, is on the hunt for a serial killer who has left a trail of bodies across the globe. The latest victim was slashed backstage during a Scorpion Tail concert in a small town in Georgia.

The indie band’s wild, rebellious sound and dark lyrics catches Toshiro’s attention. He delves into the band members’ sordid pasts, and discovers that they are linked to the most recent victim.

MonaLisa–aka Queen Sting–the lead singer, hatches a plan to distract the inspector in order to protect her band brothers. In a turn of events, she becomes attracted to him. She wants to give in, but if she acts on her desire, Toshiro may uncover the secrets she keeps, and that will put her band at risk.

Toshiro was never one to fall for seduction, but there is something about the sassy rock star that intrigues him. However, he is not the only one who is fixated on her.

Will Toshiro be able to catch the killer, before MonaLisa is added to the kill list?

Scorpion Tail Excerpt

Smoke and Strawberries

“What do you have over these cops? Have you given favors to them all? Even the chief? Is that why you carry on like you own the place?”

MonaLisa swirled around and cocked her head to the side. “Hold up. Did you just call me a whore?”

Toshiro shrugged. “If the shoe fits…”

The smile she offered was full of malice. “Ooo, what a trashy prince you are. You’re just begging for my attention, aren’t you? Well you got it. Consider yourself on my radar.”

On her radar? Is that a threat? In a flash, he was in her face. With his hand braced against the wall behind her and the other wrapped around her arm, he pinned her to the building. Despite the position he had her in, she continued to puff away on her cancer stick, which in turn, infuriated him further.

Toshiro snatched the cigarette from between her lips, threw it on the ground and stomped on it. Noses inches apart, he breathed in her aroma. She smelled of smoke and strawberries. The combination disturbed him, more so because it also aroused him. She confused his senses, made him feel things he wasn’t quite sure of. This close, he could see the specks of gold lining her chocolate brown irises. They shimmered like stars. Aside from her face, it was one of the prettiest things he’d ever seen.

What are you doing, Toshiro?

He swallowed the lump easing up his throat. “After I catch my perp, I’m going to make it my business to bring you and your band of thugs down.”

“Is that right?” Her eyelids fluttered, her breathing wavered. “A’ight then.” She flicked her tongue out and swept it over his lips. “Game on, Mah-soo-dah.”

He scrambled back, nearly falling over the hood of a police cruiser. A heatwave rushed over him and settled in his groin. Wiping at his mouth with the back of his hand, he glared at her. His lips quivered, his cock throbbed.

She released a deep, sultry laugh. “Ohh, you’re just too easy. Gotta toughen up if you’re gonna pick fights with me. Catch ya’ later.” Her swaying rear end taunted him as she headed for the shiny royal blue and white antique vehicle.

If he wasn’t mistaken, it was a Plymouth Fury. Couldn’t give her credit for lady-like behavior, but at least she had good taste in cars.

She spun around on a playful twirl and dared to light another cigarette. “Just remember, Inspector Mah-soo-dah…” She took a draw from the end and winked at him. “When you bust, I’ll bust harder.”

His chest drew so tight he could hardly breathe. What was pure rage manifested into something explosive, something he couldn’t control. “That is it!” As his feet carried him forward, his mind went blank.

New Release: SCARLET MOON Book 2 #ParanormalRomance #IAN1 #InterracialRomance

Many of you know I’ve been anxiously waiting for this day. Well now, it’s finally here! And I’m uber excited!

I present to you SCARLET MOON, Book 2 of The Dragon Queen Series

ScarletMoon_ebook_final_2

When consumed by ecstasy under the blood moon, will Rayne surrender to her inner demon?

Sharayna “Rayne” Piers has been plunged into a world of darkness, and stripped of her humanity. Half angel and half demon vampire, she is the mythical Dragon Queen, a birthright she finds difficult to accept. She struggles with the dual side of her psyche of good and evil, while fighting the growing urge to sate her unnatural hunger for human blood.

Lucius, the powerful spawn of Satan has risen from hell and released his demons to scour the earthly realm in search of the Dragon Queen. He’s determined to claim her as his mate and use her blood to overthrow his father, so he can take command over the seven levels of hell.

As Rayne’s protector, Demetri Bithanos fights to prevent the master demon from claiming his Queen. As her consort, he struggles with his aching need to be loved by her. But the dark lust of her vampiric nature reaches for the creature who desires to use her blood to fulfill his evil ambitions.

Can Demetri destroy Lucius before Rayne embraces the dark forces growing within her?

Devil’s Seduction

Demetri released her and pulled back. “Sharayna, what are we doing?” Blue-green irises melted through the lifeless puddles of black in his eyes.

The dancing flames along the ceiling died down until there was no light left in the room. The scarlet glare from the full moon peeked from the opening in the curtains and veiled their bodies in red.

Demetri took in several long shuddering breaths like it was his first time drawing in air.

Unconsciously, she did the same.

For the longest, they stared at one another, not saying a word.

Leaning over her, he pressed his forehead to hers and wrapped his arms around her. “What are we doing?” he asked again on a harsh whisper.

“I think we’re having angry sex. At least that’s what it felt like.” Trembling, she curled her fingers around his biceps and slid her hands up over the bunched muscles in his shoulders. “What I said before… I didn’t mean it. I—I don’t know why I said those things, or why I picked a stupid fight with you.”

“Your ire is justified. I have yet to fulfill your demon’s desires. My fear…” He lifted his head like an idea suddenly came to him. “The blood. It has possession over us.”

“What?” Chills crept beneath her flesh.

Lucius. His blood had fueled anger between them, preyed on her fears and doubts in an attempt to tear them apart. And he almost succeeded.

“Oh God, you’re right.” Damn, the things I said… “Demetri…”

All the pain he felt for what just happened spilled from his saddened gaze. Seeming lost in his grief, he pushed up off of her, got to his feet and adjusted his pants. “Sharayna, I don’t know if I can―”

Rayne shot up from the nest of pillows and pounced on him like a cat. She wrapped her arms and legs around him, and then slammed him onto the pillows, using her body weight to bring him down.

In a swift response, he flung her onto her back, pinned her arms out to her side and straddled her.

She erupted into a fit of giggles at the shocked look on his face.

“What is this?” His eyes were as wide as saucers. “Why did you do that?”

“I dunnooo,” she chortled, tears filling her eyes.

“Are you mad, Sharayna? After what just occurred, you want to rough house with me? Good God, woman!”

“Can’t you see? I’m bugging out here.” Delirious laughter turned into panting sobs. “I’m scared outta my damn mind, D. You see this mess? He got us going at each other like crazed fools and he’s not even here!” Her voice lowered to a shaky whisper. “What if—what if we don’t snap out of it next time? What if we really hurt each other?”

He pushed up and nestled his torso between her thighs. “Ohh, sweetheart…” His body, hot and heavy, rested on top of hers. “This is not the end. He has not bested us.”

She rested a shaky hand on his head. “How do you fight what’s a part of you?” Wetness bubbled up under her eyelids and trickled down her face. “How do you resist what’s in your blood?”

“Remember we’re not only connected by passion and desire.” He lifted up and sat back on his heels. “We are connected by something much stronger.” He placed her hand to his chest. His heartbeat and warmth radiated through her palm. “We will get through this, Sharayna.”
