You Could WIN Seducing the Jackal by @seressia at the Trick or Treat Halloween #Giveaway

What’s up, winners! I have another treat for you. 😉

Check out what you could win at the Sam Cheever’s Trick or Treat Halloween Giveaway; the steamy paranormal romance by one of my favorite authors, Seressia Glass, Seducing the Jackal.

Seducing_the_Jackal_full-189x300The Sons of Anubis are jackal shapeshifters—they have a human form and a jackal form. Millennia ago, the god Anubis called jackals from the grasslands beyond the Great Western Desert and imbued them with his power, giving them the ability to assume human form and charging them to aid him in his duties as lord of the underworld.

Helping them do this were the Daughters of Isis. For thousands of years they worked together, lived together. Some even loved together. Then the witches betrayed the jackals, and an unending war thus began.

Get yourself a glass of cold water, because it’s about to get hawt.

Markus awoke to the best sensation a man could experience: a warm, wet mouth swallowing his cock. He fumbled for the lamp on the nightstand, tapped it on. “Tia, what are you doing?”

She rolled her eyes at him.

“I mean, I know what you’re doing, but why are you doing it?” Are you stupid, man? A beautiful woman is going down on you. Shut the hell up and enjoy it.

She pulled off him with a wet popping sound that was the most erotic thing he’d ever heard. “It was poking me in the back. Since it so obviously needed attention, I decided to give it some.”

“Blessed Anubis, woman.” His hips rose as she swallowed him again. Lust and magic increased, a heady combination he could easily grow addicted to. Probably already was. If this was what being enchanted by an Isis witch meant, he’d gladly surrender to it.

Sex for pleasure’s sake was foreign to him. Throughout the long years of their exile, the jackals’ intimate habits had been focused on survival, and survival meant building their numbers. Every sensual act with the opposite sex was considered a sacred and deliberate thing, always begun with a prayer to Anubis.

This was…freeing. Wildness rose in him, the primal call of male to female. Curling his fingers into the sheets, he gave himself over to sensation. When Tia’s fingers cupped his balls, he nearly whimpered but couldn’t keep silent when her tongue traced over his sac. Buffeted by the need raging through him, he groaned aloud, helpless against the sensual magic she wove.

All too soon he could feel it, the urge to come surging up from his toes. No, gods damn it! Not yet. “Tia.”

Relief and disappointment met as she pulled her sweet mouth away. “Yeah?”

He struggled for words as her fingers stroked him. “Condom. On me. Now.”

Her throaty chuckle almost undid him. She crawled to the head of the bed, dropping a searing kiss on him before reaching for one of the foil packets on the nightstand. Thank Isis she had a whole box of them in her go-bag.

She straddled his thighs, dark eyes fixed on him as she tore the pouch open with her teeth. Fingers wrapping around his cock, she stroked him, strong, steady pulls with a twist over the head just the way he liked it but made better by her touch, her magic. His cock swelled anew, hard for her, hungry for her.

“Ride me,” he demanded as she sheathed him. His fingers dug into her hips, muscles flexing as he lifted her. “Ride me.”

She reached between them to guide his hardness to her opening, dragging his sheathed cock along her slit to coat it in her wetness. Keeping her gaze locked to his, she sank down even as he thrust up, fusing them together.

She threw her head back on a groan, the dusky copper of her nipples capturing his gaze. “Gods, that feels incredible. I can barely breathe.” She squeezed him.

He let her go, digging his fingers into the sheets again in an effort to hold back, to wrestle for a shred of control. The fabric ripped as his nails elongated.

Her eyes rounded. “Are you shifting?”

“No.” He mangled the word, his sharpened teeth getting in the way.

Read this spooky passage from Scarlet Moon Book 2 of the Dragon Queen Series and answer the question at the end.

ScarletMoon_ebook_final_2For as long as she could remember, the water demon tribe despised her kind. In the war between good and evil, the finned creatures were neutral, not leaning toward either side. At least that’s what she’d been told as a child.

Regardless, they still held their dislike for the dark side.

She couldn’t blame them for that really. The water demons were known to be peaceful creatures. However, she’d never met one who didn’t try to viciously take her life.

In that moment, a thought came to her. If she could rile the water demon soldiers, just a little… they would lash out and destroy Doshar as soon as he stepped foot onto the beach.

But will I lose my life in the process?

Glancing back at the portal, Imrie eased toward the shore. The tiny granular rocks gently dug into her knees and palms as she crawled closer to the beckoning waters.

Doshar hadn’t come through the gateway yet. Foolish warlock. Instead of focusing his energy on inflicting pain on her, he should’ve allowed her to heal him. Traveling through the portal would be all the more damaging to his injuries.

This might just be to her advantage, because it would take him a while to pass through.

Only inches from the sparkling ocean, she placed her trembling hand over the waters. The shift of the wind paused. There was no movement or sound. The reflection of reddened moon glared at her from the still surface. She gulped back the lump in her throat and tapped the unwavering water with a single finger.

A gentle ripple spread out and multiplied into spiraling rings across the ocean’s plain.

In the midst of the serene moment, a scaly hand shot out of the water and latched onto her wrist.

She shrieked and tried to jerk back.

The creature only tightened its biting grip. Her flesh painfully seared beneath its scales. A lashing stream of water vaulted from the surface and coiled tightly around her neck, relinquishing her healing power.

What was liquid felt like a thousand tiny blades slicing through her jugular. The fresh outpour of her blood spilling into the sand assaulted her senses and sent a rush of panic through her. Constantly digging into her flesh, the razor-like water whip severed her arteries. If she turned her head to either side, it would come completely off, and that would be end of her.

Truly, this wasn’t one of her brightest schemes.

“Please,” she gasped. She went limp, refusing to struggle against the watery restraint. To do so would only increase the pain.

Three heads emerged from the water at nose level. Large black fins splashed wildly behind them. Luminous droplets rolled off bright golden hair as six angry eyes, the color of onyx, peered at her.

In a harmonious unison, three masculine voices shattered the shelter of her mind. “You dare disturb the great domain of Arna.”

This wasn’t their normal behavior. They’d never spoken to her before.

“Dear warriors, I am parched, and I only wish to take a drink of your purifying water.”

“Lies! You attempt to use us as pawns to rid you of your mate. You will die along with him, Hargist.”

Sheeki! She squeezed her eyes shut and braced for the attack that would surely end her life. Seconds passed and none came. Deep murmurings drifted around her. Hesitant, she opened one eye, and then the other.

The soldiers were gathered together, staring at her palm with their eyes stretched in wonder.
