There would be no mercy. -- #MidWeek Tease: Punishing Santa #Christmas #erotic #99cents

Happy Hump Day, lovelies!

 I set up my Christmas stuff this weekend, and yesterday was a holiday here in Madrid, so I'm feeling very festive. Therefore, today I'm sharing a snippet from an old Christmas short story of mine, Punishing Santa.

Let's just say, that this Santa is not your jolly old man *wink*

 Enjoy! 







Christmas is all about that jolly old man from the North Pole, Santa Claus. He has a list of who's been naughty and who's been nice and every year he flies on his reindeer to deliver his goods. However, who decides whether Santa has been naughty or nice? That job falls to Helena Claus, his wife. After months of neglect, she's not happy with Mr. Claus at all and decides to place him on her naughty list. Not only will Santa not be getting gifts on Christmas day, furthermore, he'll be receiving a well-deserved punishment that will teach him never to overlook his wife again.

On to the tease!!

Her thoughts fled when she heard a deep baritone voice loudly singing the final verse of a popular Christmas carol. The door to her bedroom slammed open and the source of the ruckus appeared. A man more than six feet tall paused in the doorway and beamed at her. He entered the room and slammed the door shut behind him. Whistling a merry tune, he began to take off the red and white suit that was three times too big for him. His hair was back to its usual golden hue and there was no trace of a long white beard. In its stead was the blond shadow of a three-day beard. The man threw off his pants and stared at Helena.

His twinkling blue eyes roamed over her, taking in every detail of her scanty outfit. For a split second, Helena thought of canceling her punishment and succumbing to the hunger she saw in her husband's eyes, but she quickly willed herself to remember all the times Santa had been naughty throughout the year. There would be no mercy.

He spelled nothing but trouble-- Reine's Salvation (Alpha Protectors) #8Sunday #SexySnippets #WeekendWritingWarriors #paranormal #romance

Happy Sunday, lovelies!

Today I'm setting up my Christmas stuff! I'm so excited! I also managed to finish Nano last Sunday. Editing is going to be a nightmare. LOL






After Reine's gloomy thoughts from last week, today we get a glimpse into Mystique's mind.

Enjoy the snippet and have a lovely day!

 ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Mystique slid into the seat next to the sexy hunk she’d been trying hard not to stare at all night. Scratch that -she’d been trying not to ogle him since he’d walked into the bar late one night a few weeks ago. Damn, that night she hadn’t been the only one left gaping as he strutted inside and ordered a beer.
Fortunately for her, the novelty wore off on most other women quite soon. After all, he was no Jake Gyllenhaal or Brad Pitt. He tended toward the darker side of the spectrum. More like Charlie Hunnam in Sons of Anarchy but with black hair. He was the kind of man mothers warned their daughters about. Mystique could almost hear her own mother warning her that a man with tattoos and long hair spelled nothing but trouble. The bad kind.

Reine's Salvation (Alpha Protectors I)

He’s the kind of man her mother warned her to steer clear from...

Mystique is happy with her current life, but for years she's struggled on a path of self-destruction. She knows she shouldn't get involved with the brooding hunk at the bar, but how can she stay away when his sorrowful gaze is so compelling?

Reine has lost everything: his wife, his friends, his ability to fight, and his identity as an Alpha Protector. There's nothing left for him except a world of anger and bitterness. At least, that’s what he believes until he meets an intrepid waitress. 

The attraction between them is immediate, but while Reine can’t let go of his past, Mystique is not willing to return to hers. With darkness constantly closing in, will they find a way to be together? Or, will Reine's behavior destroy their future?

Enjoy this excerpt from My Oktoberfest Escapade by Jewel Quinlan:
Lars stopped us again, this time at a hat vendor. There were all kinds of hats. Some were traditional Bavarian ones like Lars’s. They came in green, gray, and brown with all different kinds of trim and decorations on them. Other, less expensive hats were on the comical side and shaped like kegs or mugs. One had beer holders with straws so the wearer could drink as they walked.
“You can’t leave without a souvenir,” Lars said.
I looked up from the stand of felt A-shaped hats I was examining.
He shoved some money and a receipt into his pocket and then presented a hat to me that looked like a full beer mug, complete with froth, and placed it on my head. I held still as he tugged the brim into position and arranged my hair, pulling the light-brown locks forward over my shoulders. He trailed his fingertips down the length of the last cluster of strands, making the base of my scalp tingle. We stood so close I could detect the mild scent of beer on his breath.
The boots I wore had a decent heel on them, but I still had to tilt my head back to meet his gaze. “How does it look?”
“Perfect.”
Our eyes locked, and it was as if time sucked us backward to that day so long ago when we’d said goodbye. It overpowered the world around us, forcing it into the background. All that existed was the two of us. As the longing in his gaze registered, my breath caught. Does he feel the same way I do? I got my answer when his lips pressed down on mine, and he wrapped his arms around me, pulling me tight.

He was the tempest that would break her. -- #MidWeek Tease: Reine's Salvation (Alpha Protectors) #Alpha #paranormal

Happy Hump Day, lovelies!

I finished Nanowrimo n Sunday. Yay! So I'm slowly, but surely crawling my way through the pile of emails and whatnot's that I had been postponing. Today I'm sharing yet another tease from  Reine's Salvation (Alpha Protectors I).

 Enjoy!

In Today's tease we're digging a little into Reine's emotions...

Reine sat on the floor. His eyes burned from the lack of sleep and his head hurt. He covered his face with his hand but didn’t close his eyes. The hammering in his skull increased and he rubbed his temples, hoping it would subside. 

“Reine.”

His heart fluttered at the sound of Mystique’s voice.

“Reine, please. You can’t stay in there forever. Open the door.”

He folded his wings behind his back. He couldn’t open the door. Allowing her inside would be like bringing her into his madness. He couldn’t allow that.

“All right. “ He heard her sigh. “I’ll come by later.”

After a second, he heard the sound of her footsteps moving away from the door. Reine let out a long breath of relief. His gaze darted across the room. The television set was on the floor, cracked. Pieces of glass and porcelain coated the living room floor. The shelves, which had held the delicate ornamental objects, lay scattered about and broken. The kitchenette was not much better off. He’d smashed several plates and glasses and wrecked the table. He’d destroyed everything in sight.

He couldn’t let her in. As much as he wanted to see her, hold her, and kiss her again, he knew it was for the best. He stared at the painting which had toppled to the ground during his mad rage. The painter had brought to life the image of a tree atop a hill after a storm. Here and there, Reine could see the gentle caress of the brush stroke used to create the rough bark. The painter had paid close attention to detail and the trunk told its history through crevices and grooves. There, a bird had chipped into it, and there, the hot weather had dried its surface until it wrinkled like a prune. Leaves and branches lay on the ground around it, but the tree still stood proud, its canopy of leaves seeming to sway in the wind and daring the tempest to come again. Every leaf had been carefully designed, appearing to be fresh and young, its texture satiny and its color a dazzling green glimmering from the sunlight peeking from behind the gray clouds.

In a way, Mystique was like that tree. She had been marked by the tribulations of life and yet she was still beautiful and full of life both inside and out. She represented those leaves dancing in the wind after a stormy night. She was the tree marked by time and pain but still strong atop the hill.
But how long could a tree withstand the force of a hurricane? She had resisted once, but no doubt, twice would kill her. Reine glanced at the hole he’d punched in the wall where the painting had hung. He was that whirlwind. He was the harbinger of destruction. He was the tempest that would break her.

He could do nothing... Reine's Salvation (Alpha Protectors) #8Sunday #SexySnippets #WeekendWritingWarriors #paranormal #romance

Happy Sunday, lovelies and Happy Belated Thanksgiving!

I'm almost done with Nanowrimo, just another 10,000 words, so as soon as I post this I'm off to speed writing. LOL 

Today's snippet takes place a few lines after last week's snippet. Reine has just seen something in the shadows and reality has come crashing in.

Enjoy the snippet and have a lovely day!

 ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Reine could do nothing. He was no longer a warrior. He was defenseless against the Sins, but the worst was he could do nothing to protect the humans which he was supposed to look after. He wanted to cry. He grasped his beer bottle and finished it in one go. He needed something stronger, something that would make him forget his miserable life. He didn’t need an Inferum in his head to feel mindless anguish. The knowledge that he was maimed for life because of his own foolishness was enough for him.
