“The mysteries of the world have been hidden from you all your life. I beseech you to stay, so that I may give you but a taste of the truth you seek.” ~ Demetri Bithanos

SilentScreams_ebook_finalR&B sensation, Sharayna “Rayne” Piers, lives her life dedicated to her music. On stage and in the studio, she pours her heart and soul into the lyrics of her songs, hoping to deliver a piece of herself to the listeners. But ever since her twentieth birthday, her seemingly normal life has taken a turn to the dark side.

Piercing screams and horrendous acts of murder seizes her mind, haunting her night and day. Women similar to her in age are vanishing all over the world without a trace. It leaves Rayne wondering if the rash of disappearances is connected to her visions.

Soon, she will discover the world she was raised in is just a cover for what really hides in the shadows, and that her life as a human is a deception to mankind, a guise to conceal her true nature. Will she shun the darkness that has befallen her or step up to the throne and become what she was created to be?


Sink your fangs into this edgy tale, consumed with dark romance, blood lust and creatures that lurk in the night.

I want to take a moment to pass some love to a wonderful actor who raced his way into my heart years ago. He was taken from this world way too soon. 😦 My heart is sad. I will be in tears as I make this a Fast & Furious weekend by watching all of the films in the Fast & Furious franchise. I hope you’ll join me.

Much Love! RIP Paul Walker

Release Announcement for SCARLET MOON #ParanormalRomance #UrbanFantasy #InterracialRomance

Happy Friday, my friends!

I hope you had a productive week and I hope you’re ready for an awesome weekend.

As promised, today I will announce the release, or should I say rerelease date for book 2 of The Dragon Queen Series, SCARLET MOON.

The release date is a week from today, Friday, August 23rd 2013! I am super excited. 😀

The saga continues…

ScarletMoon_ebook_final_2Sharayna “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?

And here is a sultry teaser for your reading pleasure…

Demetri slid a hand over the back of her thigh and along the cleft of her nether lips. A soft mewl seeped from her parted lips. Her bent leg climbed up the side of his torso, granting him better access. He delved between her moist folds and trailed along her valley, slowly, going back and forth, causing her hips to follow his motion. She was so deliciously wet. His fingers slid back up to her swelled bundle of nerves, where he caressed it in circular swirls. It quivered under his touch.

She began to pant. “God, baby, you know how to work me up so good.”

“Just keep in mind you worked me first.” He easily sunk his fingers into her moist well where he stirred her wetness.

She purred like a feline in heat.

“I can never resist your seduction, sweetheart. You have authority over my body, and it seems you enjoy taking advantage of it.”

The slight heave of her hips set the pace of his thrusting digits. As she stroked his cock in the steady rhythm, she shuddered and said in a raspy coo, “You like to play with me, don’t you? I’d rather you put your big juicy dick where your fingers are.”

“Impish little angel.” He fastened his lips over hers and kissed her deeply. Their tongues collided and danced as he swallowed her needy whimpers. “Don’t be so hasty.” He briefly caught the ring attached to her flirtatious tongue between his teeth. “Remember what happened the last time I entered you without preparing your body first.”

She rolled her thumb around his engorged crown in a teasing manner, causing his hips to buck forward. “But it hurt so damn good, big D.”
