Update and New Writing

Hey everyone how are you all doing? I know i know I haven't been on in a long time but hey I'm back now and boy do i have alot to update you on...for starters

Eternal Light is completely finished and now I'm about to start on writing my quires for agents and what not (wish me luck). Eternal Earth is on my to do list next and I have been working on parts of that book.

Now for the new writing, remember how I said I was writing these untitled stories, well they are still untitled but I am going to give you a preview of one of them, this preview is from the story i am working on pertaining to the warrior captain and protector who loves his job more than most, it is in its early early stages so bare with me and any grammar mistakes that i have committed..so with that in mind please enjoy this preview...................

The tavern was filled with drunken bodies, the putrid smell of piss mixed in with the air and burned Alexios nose as he scanned the mass of male bodies around him. He and his men entered the tavern as if they owned the place. Not caring that half of the occupants were criminals that they had locked up before. There was no love for the army of the Faye in this place. Here Alexios and his men were the invaders. 

“Spread out. He’s in here somewhere.” Alexios ordered his men who quickly spread out to search different areas of the tavern. As for Alexios he made his way straight towards the bar, all eyes glued to his every movement. 

“What if he escaped us again?” Balis, his second in command and best friend said as he walked beside him. 

“He hasn’t.” At least Alexios hoped not, he was running out of time to find the princess.
Damn it. Alexios cursed himself for letting her get away. What kind of watcher was he that his one and only job slipped right through his fingers? He could kick himself in the ass. He should have known she was going to run. Shit he couldn’t blame her. He would run to if he was forced to marry someone like the Warlock. But still he should have watched her closer, not that he thought that was much more possible then what he had been doing. He followed her around everywhere she went, lurking in the shadows close by, watching her as she shopped, as she spoke with her friends and sisters, sometimes even as she slept. If he watched her any closer he would be damn near in bed with her. With that thought, came the image of them wrapped in bed together, her thick locks of golden hair covering his body as she slept quietly, tightly snuggled into his side.
He groaned, he was a man obsessed with his job and it needed to stop. There was no way the two of them could or would ever be together. She was royalty set to marry one of the lands most powerful warlocks and he was the low level solider, with no family and no majick ability of any kind, sworn to protect the kingdom not screw it. He would do well to remember that, it would make letting her go much easier.

But first he had to get her back home. He turned his attention back to the task at hand as he and Balis reached the back of the tavern where the bar was located.
The moment the overweight bartender laid eyes on them a flash of panic went across his face. Which made a smile played on the edge of Alexios lips. Getting information out of him was going to be easy enough. 

“Louis…” Alexios gave him a chilling smile. “It has been a long time.” He continued as Balis took up an empty stool to the right of him, the poorly made seat looked as if it wanted to crack under Balis’s massive weight.

“Not long enough.” Louis finished whipping off the glass in his hand and set it down in front of Alexios. Then he stared at Alexios with that one eye and jagged scare that ran completely across his face, making the man look horribly disfigured. “What are you doing here? You know you are not welcomed here.”

Alexios gave a side glance to Balis who chuckled slightly under his breath. Then he turned his attention back to Louis. He unbuckled his sword from around his waist and laid it on the counter in front of him, knocking the dirty glass off the table and shattering it to a million pieces on the floor. Alexios then took a seat on the stool in front of him. An irate Louis was smart enough not to comment about the broken glass. 

“The Faye Princess is missing and we heard that she was seen passing through this way with a group of men. I know you have seen her. Even with one eye you know who comes in and out of this disgusting place.” He paused his casual tone turning low and deadly. “Where is she?”

“If you lost your little fairy princess that’s not my problem and it’s not my business. So why don’t you and your…” he looked like he wanted to let an insult fly out his mouth, but one look as Balis and he changed his mind “men and get out of my place of business.”

Alexios smiled darkly, before Louis knew what was happening to him Alexios had the fat man by the collar of his shirt. With one forceful pull Louis flew over the counter top and crashed to the floor. As he landed every man in the tavern stood ready to draw their weapons. 

“I would sit down if I were you…” Balis said calmly as he rose from his stool. His massive body frame making the space feel twice as small as it really was “unless all of you have a death wish today.”

“No one is scared of you.” A worn down man with bald patches and bad teeth said from in the corner of the room. 

“Of course not, they are too busy being scared of your disgusting face and missing hair.” Fearean said as he pushed the man from behind. “With that and your bad breath you are much more dangerous than us.” He pushed the man again, this time causing him to stumble and fall on his face. Fearean laughed as he looked at the male glaring up at him from the floor. “What’s the matter little man…you want to fight?”

“Knock it off Fear.” Kale’s dark rumble of a voice echoed in the air around them just before he appeared beside Balis. The last of Alexios’s warriors to appear was Bryan, who stood beside Fearean looking as if he wanted to any place but in the tavern. Alexios felt the same way as his gaze went over every man in the place. He watched as they wisely backed down and took their seats again, pretending to ignore the men that now circled their host so that he had no place to run.  

“Look who we got here, it’s our good friend Louis.” Fear bent down so that Louis could look directly into his black eyes. “Louis you know how this goes tells us where she is and we promise not to take out your other eye…maybe.” He smiled showing off his perfect teeth.

“Knock it off Fear.” Alexios said. 

Fearean laughed darkly as he rose to his feet.

Alexios had grown tired of the games, kneeling down beside Louis he spoke directly to him. “Where is she, Louis? I don’t have time for your games. Either tell me where she has been taken or I’ll have…” He motioned his head towards his men. “I’ll have them carve the information out of you.” He rose to his feet, all hint of amusement leaving his features. “It’s your choice.”

Alexios stood as he watched Louis eye look around him, he figured the man understood the danger he was in when he brought his gaze back to Alexios’s.

“She was with a bunch of out of town men. They came in about a day or so ago...” His voice trembled as he spoke “they sat in the corner in the far end of the room, so they wouldn’t draw any attention to themselves..."

“How long did they stay here? What were they wearing? Was she chained or looked enslaved? Come on Louis we need details.” Alexios told the aging male.

“They stayed for a few hours, laughing and buying drinks. They almost drunk the entire bar-“

“Did you hear what they were talking about?”

Louis started to shake his head no but thought better of it once he felt the sharp end of a sword pressed against the nape of his neck. “I…I couldn’t really hear…but the lad who served them he…he could hear everything they said.”

“Where is the boy?” 

“He is outside in the stables…he sleeps there during his off hours.” 

Alexios nodded to Bryan, who was the closest to the back door, and he quickly went off to find the boy.

Alexios turned his attention back to Louis “Continue…what did they look like? Wearing?” As Alexios waited for Louis’s response he saw that the man had gone completely silent and his eyes were fixed on the door of the tavern. Alexios and his men gazes, except for Fearean whose attention remained solely on Louis, went toward the front door and took in the several men that had appeared suddenly then looked back at Louis. 

“Who are they?” Fearean asked while his sword still remained pressed to Louis’s neck.

“Collectors.” Balis responded his gaze narrowing on Louis.

 “What are they doing here?” Kale asked with a hint of annoyance in his voice as his hand went for his sword that was fastened to his side. 

Not responding to Kale’s question Alexios yanked Louis off the floor and pulled the man close to him. “You’re coming with me…Balis?”

“Yeah.” 

“Keep an eye on them while I’m gone. When Bryan comes back tell him I am upstairs in Louis’s…entertainment room. The rest of you try not to do any damage while I’m gone” 

Basil nodded. With his orders issued he and Louis vanished from sight. 

“Ok boys, you heard the man lets blend in.” 

Kale and Fearean nodded as all three of them changed out of their battle armor and into common clothes a moment before the collectors noticed them.

Louis cursed as he landed on the floor. His sore back screamed in pain as it hit the hard wood. 

“What were they wearing?” He heard the commander of the guard ask again. Louis looked up to see those hard eyes narrowed on him. The man, Faye, or whatever he was made an opposing sight in his chain mail, metal boots, and golden sword that marked his status within the army. Only generals and commanders were given the golden swords of the Faye or so he’d been told. To be given those swords one had to show exceptional majick ability and strength and loyalty to the royal family. Not only did the swords show power and status they also gave the holder the power to call forth the most powerful majick in the land…too bad none of the Faye actually knew how to channel that ancient power, if they did they would be unstoppable. Louis had only known of one being who had successfully channeled that power and survived. But if you asked him it wasn’t worth it, to be unstoppable yet to lose your soul to that power and everything else you love…no he was glad he wasn’t a Faye.

But to be honest with himself he held great respect for the warrior in front of him. Many myths and stories that he heard as a young boy made the Faye’s out to be weak creatures but once he had gotten sucked into this world he quickly realized the stories he had heard were nowhere near the truth. Or if it was they were they didn’t count the Faye’s the ruled in this land. These Faye’s were some of the most power creatures in the land, coming second only to their enemies the Warlocks. Alexios and his men were a far cry from the fragile creatures that played in children’s stories. They were ruthless and cut throat. He remembered when he first heard Alexios name, it had been right after The First Great War where the warlock leader Salvenious de’ KuVane had tried to over throw the Faye King, King Ontligus. Louis remembered hearing how it was Alexios who had saved the king and his daughters’ life by ripping the warlocks head off with his bare hands, after he had went after the second born princess. Never in the history of the Faye, had a solider been possessed with that much rage and physically ripped one of the most powerful warlocks head off with his bare hands. Ever since then Alexios’s name was feared throughout the land. Him and his army exploits were the stories parents told their children when they misbehave, ‘be good of Alexios and his men will come to take you away, they will lock you in the castle dungeon and hang you upside down by your toes. So behave if you want to stay with mommy’

“Louis, do you hear me or have you gone completely deaf.” Alexios impatient reputation preceded him.

“They were dressed in…” He paused, thinking back to the group of men that had came into his tavern yesterday acting like a pack of wild dogs. Well that he was used to, half his best customers acted like animals but these men were strange…different. “They wore long black and hooded robes when they first walked in. There was a leader that wore the same black robe except his had gold trim going from one arm to the other and expensively made shoes…they walked in quietly. They didn’t look at any one or anything. They simply took a table in the back.” He paused, took a deep breath. “Their hoods covered their faces, it wasn’t until another man, taller than the rest with a royal looking blue robe came in with a woman and sat at their table did they remove their hoods.” he slowly rose to his swollen feet. He made his way to his makeshift bed as Alexios absorbed what he just told him.

“The woman…pale blue eyes and long golden hair...tall, with lean legs?” Alexios voice was barely above a whisper and Louis had to strain to hear him.

“Yes, we were allowed a peak at her eyes and hair but other than that her face was covered by a mask…”

“The men, what did they look like?” By now Alexios was pacing the tiny space and Louis was getting dizzy trying to keep up with him. 

“They all looked exactly the same, pale silver hair and grey eyes, they resembled boys in the middle of transitioning into men…but their hands, their hands looked like the hands of 90 year old men. And their nails, long and yellow looking, curved several times.”

“Saplings…” Louis heard Alexios whisper just as another warrior appeared in the room with him. Louis looked at the warrior and felt the urge to run and hide in his small closest. Menace and rage filled the space between them as he held on to the boy at his side. 

“Here’s the boy.” His voice so deep that Louis wasn’t sure he heard him. “I’m going down stairs with the others.” With that he tossed the child in front of Alexios and left the room. 

Louis felt bad for the poor boy as his little and frail body trembled from head to toe.
Alexios cold eyes stared the child down, and then he bent down so that he and the boy were face to face. As he looked at the boy his features softened slightly. 

“What is your name?” 

“Taylor.” The soft voice barely reached his ears.

“Taylor, I am Alexios.” 

The boy’s face lit up at the sound of Alexios’s name. “I know who you are.” His voice raised a notch with his excitement. “You are the one that killed Salvenious de’ KuVane…my mother loves you…well loved before she died.”

“I am very sorry for your lose. How long have you been here?”

“Three years.” As if some courage had been slapped into him, his back straightened and he finally looked Alexios in the eye. “I do very good work and I work very hard…I hope one day to be a warrior like you.”

As Louis watched the exchange between the two of them he saw something flash in Alexios’s eyes at the boy’s words but as quick as the emotion had come it was gone.
“That is a fine goal to have Taylor. But I have a question to ask you.”

“Sure Alexios you can ask me anything.” The boy said excitedly, which earned a slight smile from Alexios.

 “Do you remember the men who came in here yesterday?” When the boy just looked at him with confused eyes, Alexios probed more. “They came in here with a woman, wearing a mask.”

Alexios watched as all color fled from the boy’s face and his eyes began to dart back and forth around the room. “Taylor…do you know who the men I am talking about?”
He shook his head up and down slowly. His small hands were balled into fist, in the hopes to stop them from shaking as he remembered the monstrous faces of the five men. “They were not men…they had yellow and wrinkled skin, with pale silver hair and cold grey eyes. Their teeth…their teeth, some looked like they were chewing on rocks. Others were sharp and covered with dry blood stains.” His voice cracked as he continued. “The smelled Alexios, I mean really, really bad. They smelled like rotten flesh.”

Both Louis and Alexios stared at the boy. Louis because he didn’t know the boy was such a great liar and Alexios because the boy had seen through the Saplings disguise and down into their true appearance. It took an incredibly strong warlock to be able to look past the Saplings disguise, hell he still had a hard time seeing them but this boy, this child who could be no older than 11 saw through them with perfect ease.
“What of the woman?” Alexios asked once his shock wore off.

“She was beautiful, pure innocence even though those men tried to take it. I could see in her spirit Alexios that she would not give into them. She called out for help but I was the only one who could hear her…she called out for her warrior…her savior.”
Alexios heart stopped beating at the boys last words. She had called out for him and he had failed her. Coldness the likes of which he had never known swept across his body. He made a promise to himself and to her that everyone of those monsters would die by his hands.

 “I tried to help her Alexios, I tried but they were too strong, they kept me back, they kept me from their minds.” He started to sob. “I couldn’t help…I failed you. I swear I didn’t know she was the princess…I would have tried harder…I swear I would have Alexios.”

“It’s ok Taylor, you did more than most warriors would have done after seeing those monsters.” Alexios reassured the small boy but he still couldn’t believe what he was hearing. This boy was something special…different and Alexios had to get him back for the king to see. “Do you hear where they were taking her?” 

He nodded his head yes “Something about an auction.”

Alexios felt all color drain from his face. An auction…no. He couldn’t let that happen. He had seen what went on at those auctions and he didn’t want his – the – princess anywhere near it. He had to get to her and quick. Good thing there was only one auction arena in this area and it was less than a half a day’s travel. Alexios rose to his feet and turned his attention to Louis. “The boy is coming with us.”

Before Louis could say a word Alexios and the boy vanished from his sight.
Alexios reappeared downstairs expecting to see his men gathered and waiting for him, instead what he found was a brawl. Bodies were being thrown everywhere, twice since he had appeared in the room he had to move the boy out the way of a flying body. 

“This motherfucker just cut me.” Fearean’s voice rang out over the fighting. Alexios turned just in time to see Fear drive his sword into the man’s stomach and twist. 

  “Pathetic.” Distaste rung in Fear’s voice as he kicked the dead man of his sword.
Alexios shook his head, he should have known better than to leave them alone for more than a few seconds. He looked next to Fearean to see Kale -with Bryan covering his back- decapitating a man. Blood sprayed him all in the face as the head landed at Alexios’s feet.

“I swear they act like little children.” 

Alexios turned to his side to see Balis sitting in the same spot he had been in before he left with Louis. “I said to watch them.”

“They are grown men, if they can’t watch themselves by now then shame on them.” With that Balis downed whatever alcoholic substance he was drinking then punched the man in the face that was charging with his sword drawn towards him. 

“Will you get them, I know where the princess is and I need Fearean to take the boy to the castle. I’ll be waiting outside, as you can see the boy doesn’t need to see this mess right now.”

Basil looked at the boy then back at Alexios, he raised a brow.

“I will explain later just get them, time is running out.” Alexios vanished with the boy just as someone’s body part would have hit him in the back of his head.

UPDATE: Eternal Light, Eternal Earth, and New Stories

Hey followers whats going on? Hope everything is good with you all, my life has been hectic over the last few months or waever so i haven't had the time to update. But I figured since I'm in the computer lab not doing anything at school that I should update (eww someone just passed gas...i think it was the old man a few seats away from me) but anyway moving on i think its time that I update you with whats been going on with your favorite stories and some new ones.

Well first things first Eternal Light is still where it was last time I updated you guys...in the editing process. I cant lie, I've really been slacking on that lately. I mean I could have been had that book done and shopping around for agents but I've been lazy and tired. I feel like I've let down my characters but I plan to be finishing it soon, my not gonna say a time frame because I might not stick to it, just be on the look out for the update that says the editing is done. As for Eternal Earth, Adien and Harmony, they were also put on the back burner. I'm having a hard time thinking of scenes for their book, I know where I want it to go and I know how it is going to end...well for the bad guys anyway not to sure about Adien and Harmony, I think that might be my problem that I don't know where or how the book is going to go exactly. But I guess that can be considered the joy in writing, is to let the writing take you where it wants you to go. But Adien has gone quite in his story so I guess I'm going to have to wake his damn ass up.

Then there was this untitled short story I was working on about a woman who cant break her promises and the man/male who comes in a turns her world upside down...well that is on hold as well. Not because the characters aren't speaking to me but I had writers block on their story so I put it aside for a while. Yeah, yeah I know.

But on a more positive note, after watching True Blood (I love Eric and Alcide...soo sexy gives me goosebumps) and hearing about Sookie being a Faye, I decided to write my own story about Faye's, now this book s a collection of short stories called novellas (being that they aren't short enough to be called short stories or long enough be call novels), each short story is related to the story before it and makes up the entire Faye world. Each warrior and princess gets their own story that is set to be around 100 to 150 pgs long and there are around 10 stories so the book or manuscript by the time I'm done should be 1000pgs, this is a project that is going to take me some times to finish being that its so long. But I have all the stories outline and the main characters set (but you know how it goes new characters pop up and maybe a new story) but this series has me excited and I look forward to writing it. I guess what I gotta do is schedule which books I write and how much I write but I get so tired these days and the feeling to write is there but I lack the effort (horrible writer) sometimes but I'm determined to reach my goals and my dreams because I cannot live the "normal" life all my family lives and do the same thing over and over or go to a job I hate everyday and do the same thing day after day so I have to make it....

But until next time SMUCHEZ...

(PS stand by for a preview from the first story in the Faye world of Warrior and Army Leader Alexious and The Second Born Faye Princess Tara...it should be highly entertaining)

Update: Book Reviews and Writings

Hello everyone how are you guys today? I'm doing good, much better than yesterday. It was just one of those days. But anyway I'm back to my old self and I have some updates for you guys and some really great book reviews. So we will start with the book reviews because I'm so excited to give my input about these books...Ok so the first two are actually by the same author, Ted Dekker. The first book is called ADAM..
.
This books is about a elusive serial killer that had been named EVE by the FBI because he is brutally killing woman. Now I'm not going to go into he extremely detail information about the book.Mainly because I would end up telling the whole book. But what I am going to do is give my opinion on the book. Though I don't often read thrillers or mysteries Ted Dekker pulled me in along time ago with his book Sinner (i didn't even mind that is was a somewhat religious fiction writing). Though I wouldn't give Adam five stars. I will give it three and a half because it did keep me interested and the ending was a twist that I liked however it wasn't a book that I couldn't walk away from, actually I put it down several times before I actually finished it. The main detective is obsessed with the killer and looses his whole family because of it, though i know this book was about the relationship between the killer and the detective I feel as if the characters could have been alot mroe developed for the book. For instance we know the dective is divorced from his wife because of his obession witth the killer. And Dekker says that she truly loves him still and that they still love each other however you dont get that feeling as your read the book. I feel that she was actually just insterted into the story to provide for a way for the killer to get to the dectetive (and the fact that I cant remember the mans name says enough about the book for me). Thats just one problem had, the typos and grammitical errors didn't really phase me to much because I knew what he was saying and what was supposed to go where. To be honest the most interresting part in the book was the ending when finally got the interaction between the killer and the decetive and it turns out that the man is actually possessed and the dective become possessed, from there it is a wild ride and the most entertaining part in the book. Would I read this book again...probally not...Would I recomend it to a friend? maybe...I'm not to sure. Overall Adam gets a 3.5/5 from me.

However though Adam wasn't as good as I though it was going to be the Bride Collector also by Dekker was exactly what I expected it to be. It seemed as if he put more time and effort into the story and the characters. The story is a cat and mouse game with Dective Brad Reins (who the killer calls the Rain Man), the killer named Quintion, and woman named Paradise, and others who become important to the story line. Just like with Adam I'm not going into detail about the stroyline, mainly because the book is to big and the storyline is actually pretty complex. This book though takes you into the world of what normal people consider "mentally ill" and ask the question about what is "normal" or are we all suffering from some type of mental illness. In true Dekker fashion the dectivie (Brad) is obessed with the Kill (Quintion) who believes he is the messenger of God and that he kills this woman in order to present them a brides to God. That is until Brad is caught and convinces Quitnion that he is actually working for the devil. Which only causes Quintion to go on a more brutal killing spree. This book took me about a week to finish, not because it was bad but because there was so much complexity and deatils within the relationships going on that I didn't want to rush through it. Not only do you see that Brad is tourmented by the killer who makes things extremley personal once Brad interffers, but you see Brad struggles with his own vanity and problems as he asks himself what is real becauty. Then there is Paradise and the other Patients in the CWI who add a even more perplexed but also a comice relief to an other wise dark story. And you see that in their world it is those who consider themselves "normal" that are actually the outsiders. Each character espically Paradise, who becomes the last target for Quintion becuase of her inner beauty and purity, has their own stroy that actually ties in to Qunitnion. From the moment Brad enters the Center it is a tail spin from his every day controled and organized life. It was highly intertaining to watch his growth as a man and as a human being. Would I recommend this book to a firend? Yes I would (i have already), Would I read it again? I'm planning on it. Overall the Bride Collector gets 4.5/stars from me (not 5 because the ending made me a little dissapointed but I'm not going to ruin it for everybody else).

Next, these books comes from my favorite author Sherrilyn Kenyon. The first one is tittled In Other Worlds.
 
This is an anthology, and I brought this book for one story (because I've already read the other one) which is Adorn's story (I love that name).But anyway the story is a short story so it only centers around him and Livia, though the story happens fast it is still worth the read. The problem that I have with Kenyon's short stories is that they are rushed because they have to be short so the story lines aren't as good as they would be with her full length novels (no including Bad Moon Rising, which was a huge dissapointment, I hope No Mercy will be much better). But I love her as an author and would probally enjoy anything she writes, whichs brings me to the next book....
Knight of Darkness, I have to admit didn't draw me like Sword of Darkness at first...needless to say by the second chapter I couldn't put the book down. Definitely a must read, though I want to give a long explination of the book and what i think (which you already know) I'm not going to because I'll just be repeating myself. Anyone who knows how I feel about Kneyon knows what I will say about her books. So I'm going to move on to my own writings...

Ok so i'm still editing Eternal Light and writing Eternal Earth, but Jade has spoken to me and I have a scene for his book other than the opening scene and I have the basic storyline outlined so I am making progress, though it is slow it is still progress.  As for Eternal Dreams and Eternal Power I am making progress on those as well (well some what). They are still in the process of being written. It a slow process espcially when I'm writing Sylin and Seline's short story (which I am liking by the way).

As far as the Griffons and the Elemental Kings I have a feeling that I will be working on those at the same time which will be after the get the hounds out the way or at least get some of these stories out of my head so I have space for some more....

But other than that, thats about it. School is right around the corner and I don't know how this is going to play out with all my writings but we will see.


Well until next time...SMUCHEZ

Update: Negativity, Books, Eternal Light, and Untitled Short Story

Hey everyone what's going on? Ok so there are some things on my mind that I feel the need to get off my chest...One I know (as of right now) I have no followers (well one), even before then when I had no followers I still would say "hey followers" or "everyone". I do this because I know one day (soon) i am going to have followers so I want them to feel as if i was talking to them or waiting for them to find me. And besides I live by the code if you think it, you can see it, you can dream it, that it will happen. So therefore I know I will have followers very soon....(even though I know that whole explanation sounded horrible. It came out much better in my head.) But moving on..

OK so I read my friends blog and he's describing the world of publishing and the difference between literary fiction and genre fiction and like most things in the world it is filled with a lot of negativity and bias opinions (which is the problem in the world today). Take the Twilight Saga for instance. Yes granted every time I see a twilight poster, commercial, or anything that has to do with twilight i want to kill myself but that is mainly because the movies sucked and destroyed the books for me. But as far as the books go in my opinion I believe they were pretty good for a woman who hasn't wrote anything before twilight. People give Meyer a lot of flack about her series and many say that its a shame or some horrible act of God that people are going so crazy over her books. Yes granted it annoys me but I understand why many people, teens especially are drawn to the movies. Lets forget about the vampires and werewolves for a second (TEAM JACOB lol). so when you take out those elements you get the story about a teenage girl in high school in a new town, she is awkward and alone and has no friends, and then there is Edward who is this idealized high school it man that all the girls want because he is mysterious and handsome, but deep down he is troubled and alone and doesn't want to hurt those around him. Twilight is about the struggles of these two totally opposite people coming together and finding love in a world that doesn't want them together. The book also emphasizes control and restraint when it comes to sexual relationships and that if he truly loves you he would wait. It is in a way teach children or teens whatever you want to call that though there may be this sexual attraction that he wont rush or push you into something that you aren't ready for. Then it has the life of a high school teen (once again minus the vampires and werewolves, the competition, the friends, and the friend that love you more than a friend but you don't love him like that. That is one of the reasons as to why twilight is such a big thing. As for the whole in love with Robert Patterson...hummm yeah that is something I don't understand lol cause he is not what I pictured Edward as lol. Though Twilight doesn't appeal to me personally, for my little cousins and teens it does.

I don't know why people tend to focus on the negative aspects of life. Life is hard enough without adding extra hostility on to it. Yes of course there a thousands of authors who are great writers but aren't published. And I'm not going to say that I could be one of them because I am not. See the thing about it is that I may not get published through an agent and all that good stuff, all that means is that I have to do it on my own. Simple as that. People have to realize that it wont just happen over night. it might take years for some one to come along and take a shot on you. Like with my favorite author Sherilyn Kenyon, it took her eight years before she got signed and a publishing company took a chance on her, and now she is one of the biggest names in her genre. Know why because she didn't give up, even when she wanted to she kept pushing. She never gave up her dream of being a writer. And my thing is if your a writer you love to write plain and simple. If you are writing to make millions of dollars then you are in the wrong profession. And it pisses me off when critics and my grandmother say that certain books are junk or trash or garbage because they aren't the types of books that they like to read. It no only limits the persons minds as to what they can imagine but also the writers chance of achieving their goals. Now it is a different story if you base your critique of a book or novel on the spelling, grammar and sentence structure, or character development or something of that nature then that is understandable but to simple call anything junk because it simply doesn't fit your taste is ignorance and a perfect example of why the world is the way it is today.

For instance I love books from many types of genre fiction and literary fiction, but there are certain genre's that bore me such as terrorism and military and history (certain historical text that is)and non-fiction (unless presented in a not non-fiction kind of way, though i think if Reggie Bush published a book about his life with pictures in it I would buy it) but that is just me. I do not call books in those genre trash or garbage or wish something bad on the author, I simply don't buy those types of books when i walk into the book store. Its as simple as that. If i wanted to read about terrorism and military operations I would read the news paper (which I do by the way), when i read my books I want to be taken away from the issues of the world today and transported to a world somewhere where the unthinkable can happen, like vampires or werewolves, or dragons, or I want to journey back into the past, and ages long long ago to learn about the different cultures of the world and take me on an adventure to the past. I don't even read "hood" or "African American" fiction because I live that life being that I am an African American woman (not including all the drug dealing and stuff like that) but I live in a neighbor hood where I see that every day, and I know people around me that live that therefore those books to me are boring but do not get me wrong they are not trash (well the ones I have read anyway), some may have not been up to my standards our couldn't catch my attention but none were trash. Those types of books are books that I know whose the killer or what ever even before the first chapter is over. I know who is going to die and all of that. In knowing that the books hold no interest for me. Yes granted in most of the books that I read you know the hero and the heroine end up together some kind of way but its the trip that they take to get there that makes the book for me. But like I said do not get it twisted reading authors like Zane and Terri Woods and Omar Tyree inspired me to writer and that was at the age of 10 or 11. and at 12 I wrote what I considered my first novel. Now that was trash when I read it now. not because of the story line (which was bad) but because of the character developments and grammar, that is what made it trash or junk even. but I didn't throw it out. in fact it is on my to do list when I get a chance.

OK see I can go on forever about my vies and opinions but let me sum this up. If you don't like it don't read it, simple as that but do not disrespect the author or artist because most put their hearts and souls into what they present and all those who are serious should be taken seriously. Because fact of the matter is that you wouldn't want someone doing that to your work. I know I don't (even though I am sure many many people will). Treat others with the respect that you would want. If they ask you for your honest opinion and its bad just deliver it in the neatest way possible.

Now that my rant is over let me update you on Eternal Light...yay (claps), I'm half way through the editing process and I have realized that through this whole process I have already edited my book about seven or eight times if not more just from having to reread everything over and over before I actually put it into the story, and now I'm going through it as a whole (again) so its taking a while but I am making progress. I'm so proud of myself and the hard work I put into this baby. It's my baby and the series is my heart and soul and I can't wait to share it with you. And you will see that there were whole scenes that got cut out some were placed somewhere else some scenes were added but I hope you enjoy it when it is done. I plan on going to staples and letting them bind it for me, not to go to agents or anything but for me personally to have a hard cover copy in my hands and of course I gotta get a copy for the friends (though they gonna have one copy cause staples is expensive lol)

Eternal Earth is back to moving at its usual slow speed. But its OK once again I am taking a break from that and have a new short story I am working on. It's untitled right now and I have about five hand written pages so far. I don't know where it is gonna go a whole as of yet but I think it might be a series but a short story series with the characters. So for the first one the basic idea is that there is this woman and she had to keep every promise she ever makes and if she doesn't...well I don't know exactly what happens but its something bad. But she meets this man who she made a promise to a year ago that when he won and award or something she would go on a date with him. Which he does in a year and he finds her again and she is obligated to go out with him. But the guy is not what he seems (and me being me) he is not human and the situation she is in is not normal (like always). so that's the basic bone work of the story but its coming to me as I write it so I will definitely have a preview of that for you by the end of the week..promise (lol)

But that is all for now, I have to get back to work. (i think this is the longest blog I have actually written without putting a preview). So until next time SMUCHEZ

Updates: Eternal Earth and Eternal Dreams

Hey everyone hows it going? Good I hope. Well I haven't gotten a chance to work on all of my series like I originally wanted to mainly because not only am I fighting writers block but I also started a new job for the summer so that takes up most of my day even though I don't really work long hours. Also I have put the editing for Eternal Light on hold as well while I turn my room into a mini office type thing. I want to work on the books in a more comfortable and professional setting and i think working at a desk rather then on my bed with my lap top will help me out a great deal. Because the screen on the desk top will not only be bigger but also brighter than the screen on my laptop it will allow me to work faster on all of the series. So until I have my office up the final copy of Eternal Earth is on hold. I hope to be starting it again withing a few months before summer is over and school starts.

But don't be sad I have good news as well. Eternal Earth is moving along well. I don't know if I told you but I have written the ending for the book and now I have scenes that I think are going to be the middle of the book coming along. I had wanted to give you guys previews but I decided to wait until I know exactly what direction the book in a whole is going in but I will say that Adien is most definitely a ladies man and he has his hands full right about now. So that is what is going on with Eternal Earth. As for Eternal Fire, Jaden is hiding from me right now. He's not speaking to me and it may be because I am working on his brother right now but I have concepts and ideas for what is going to happen but nothing is concrete expect for the fact that Aaron and Jaden already knew each other before all the bad things started happening.

On a side note me being me. I skipped writing Eternal Fire to write scenes for Eternal Dreams and I'm excited about Rasi's story I cant wait for you guys to read the preview I have for that but first I have to give you the previews for Eternal Fire (yeah yeah I know you don't like waiting but I promise it will be worth the wait.)

But let me go for now I will update some more once I get home because I am at work right now Until Next Time Smuchez

Update: Eternal Earth and a New Series

Hey everyone whats going on? I hope everyone is enjoying the somewhat nice weather lol. And congrats to all the Graduates of 2010.I know I've been missing and lacking on my post but school is out now and hopefully I will be able to make more post and work on my books and stories.

And with that let me fill you in on what's going on with the current Trinity book...Well I have the ending written for Adien's book well the last page of it anyway and I must say it is going to be a good one...well in my opinion anyway. (side note I haven't finished rewriting and doing the edits for Eternal Light. lol yeah I know) But so far Adien and Harmony have an interesting journey ahead of them. The chemistry and interaction between them is hilarious and oh so yummy lol. Adien is by far the sexiest brother (though Radien and Jaden aren't to be counted out either they are just as yummy). Anyway I have the story and most of the important events in the book planned out. There's some kidnapping, killings, and unexpected surprises. Also there is a new devil introduced, and new characters (and new types of mythical creatures) and a lot of brand new rivalries. When the second beast is released Adien is going to have his hands full with the women in his life.

Second thanks to my one of my favorite authors another new series or short stories about the Four Horsemen. I think that would be so cool to write. To give War, Famine, Pestilence, and Death (I think Death and War would be the baddest ones) their own personalities and bring them to life outside of religion would e interesting. i will let you know how that is working out for me.

Lastly I am proud to announce that I have come to the conclusion that the Trinity series will be more than three books because I realized that three books weren't going to be enough to do the characters justice, so after Jaden's story which is called Eternal Fire is Rasi's story which is entitled Eternal Dreams and his story is going to be a story twister. And with school being out I hope to seriously start the first book of the Griffin series and the first book for the Elemental Kings series and hopefully I can have at least a five page preview for each book done within the next month or so. I just crazy that the more books I read from my favorite authors the more series that pop into my head and the more book come to me. though most will probably short stories and not full length novels. There's just so many stories that need to be told that I don't know which ones to do first. And what happens is that my head fills up and the stories that I am already working on cant come to me so I get writers block. But I'm going to write as much as I can over the summer and hopefully I'll have Adien's book done and working on Jaden's and the griffins and the kings. Until then...smuchez...

Update: Eternal Earth book 2 in the hound series

Hey everyone how is your spring break. Hope it is going good. School for me is doing ok. One of my professor gets on my last nerve but hey i gotta do what i gotta do. But the family is good we were dealing with some drama but its died down now...But on to the updates...

First is Eternal Light which I am still editing (i am almost done with the first editing process). As I'm reading it i realize that what I meant to say is not actually what I had said. Oh the joys of being a writer. As I am reading Radien and Melody's story I have to laugh at myself because some sceens are hilarious. At the same time I am still amazed at my self that I crated these characters and this world that is uniqulely my own. Even though the fundamental principles a the same as any world or life but the evens and the situations that the characters have to go through to get to their ultimate goal. sometimes I am surpised at myself and my writing (though sometimes I feel it can be better...once again the pains of being a writer, you are never happy with your work and always feel like it can be better.) Like I was saying Melody and Radien are almost done with their editing process.

Second is on to Eternal Earth (yes I know finally I am moving on lol) but I am writing chapter 3 right now and I have to say I am loving the way Adien's story is going so far. I sitting her debating if I should give you some character info on Adien, even though you meet him in Radien's book but as always when a character gets their own story you see all their sides. And from chapter one you see Adien as the emotional confused wreck he is. He is constantly battling himself and his emotions even when he knows he is not going to win. So far in the first 3 chapters you are seeing Adien, but his heroin Harmony is not to be counted out either because for a man like Adien it takes a confident and persistant woman to tame him. I have to admit it is pretty funny to create and bring life to the game that they are about to play. Oh an of course you cant forget about Radien, Melody and everyone else. They of course are there throughout the course of the book. and they are all watching on entertained by Adien and Harmony. Then of course you have those on the darkside and all I have to say is the Iraon is about to be a busy beast. He is going to have his hands full with Aprophsis and all the females around him =). And I am debating if one of the griffins are going to make a quick apperance in Adiens story im not really to sure yet. But of course Jaden makes an apperance you see more of him towards the middle or end of Adien's story.

As far as Jaden goes (I don't want ruin anything) all i am going to say is that he is a character all to himself and him and Aaron have a passion that enflame's the soul.

As far as the griffin series I haven't started those yet but I am still working on it when the story hits me i will be writing it. Same goes for the elemental kings series. And for them I am debating how the series will go...

But i wanna leave you with a preview of the first chapter of Eternal Earth..hope you like it:

Eternal Earth Preview Chpt 1:

A year had passed since he had last seen her, a whole year of beautiful golden eyes haunting him in his dreams, making him wake up in a cold sweat and his body rock hard. A year since he was able to inhale her earthly scent. As their gazes locked Adien knew that even after a brief meeting with her she was embedded into his senses. He watched her as she watched him. He body tense with her back straight she continued to walk around the eloquently decorated room greeting her wealth guest. All the while watching him out the corner of her eye.

Standing by the bar his eyes followed her movement. she looked stunning in her floor length designer gown. The emerald green dress hugged her toned body. The V cut neckline showing just enough of her pushed up cleavage to make his mouth water. Her once short hair was cut into a short bob where the hair in the front was longer than the back. The style left he delectable neck exposed, he imagined his tongue running along the length of her neck...down her collar bone...lower into the swells of her breast.

Just imagining her in his arms again this time conscious made him groan as he downed another shot, trying to calm the desire that was working its way through his body.

"There you are."

Looking out the corner of his eye he watched Melody, the Trinitymate of Light, his brother's woman walk over to him with a smile across her face. She was gorgeous in her midnight gown with her white hair pulled into a tight bun that showed off the glow of her skin. The fact that her belly was large and round didn't seem to faze most of the men in the room. They still looked at her with a desire that made Adien want to bash them over the head for looking at her too long.

I never ceased to amaze him how close they had become in the last year. She became the sister that he wished he had instead of his brothers. She turned out to be the only one who truly understood his pain and all that he went through. On more than one occasion he found himself confiding secrets in her about himself that he wouldn't dare tell anyone else. He loved the Trinitymate and would kill anyone who thought to hurt her. Not that he would get a chance once his brother got finished with them...speaking of his brother where was the over sized asshole. No doubt he was close enough to watch his woman but Adien was surprised he wasn't behind her hovering over her like an over protective parent. But then again he was sure that his brother's glowing eyes and massive size would cause all celebration to cease.

"Adien." She sighed shaking her head. Disappointment clearly showing across her face as she looked at the empty shot glasses next to him. "You promised."

"I know." He felt like a child being scolded. but he had promised her once she had told him that she was pregnant that he would stop drinking if she allowed him to be the guardian of her twins. At first she looked shocked by his request but then a big smile spread across her face while her eyes glowed with excitement. She hugged him tight, her arms wrapped tightly around his neck. Too bad his brother didn't seem quite as happy. In fact he looked as if he would kill Adien in his sleep later that night.

"Damn Adien, really 8 shots what are you trying to do kill yourself?" She continued to scold him as she came to stand beside him.

He wished it was that easy to ill him self. If that was the case he would have died hundreds of years ago. But he had kept his word, he hadn't touched a drink in almost six months, which was a first for him. At seeing his obsession again and the desire that quaked through his body he needed a drink, if not the whole bottle to keep himself from taking her. As it was now the drink didnt affect him half as much as it would appear. He wasn't drunk, far from it actually. He was focused on her as she chatted with a few men. Which made Adien more jealous then he cared to admit, it was clear that every man in the room wanted her. He could see it in the way they looked at her, their desire shinning bright in their eyes with little touches to her bare shoulder or elbow when they wanted to make a point.

Growling low in his throat Adien turned away, barking at the bartender to get him another drink....

Harmony could feel the heat of his gaze on the side of her face traveling down her body. As she chatted with the head advertiser of the company she watched him out the corner of her eye. She couldn't shake the odd feeling that she had seen him somewhere before. But she couldn't for the life of her recall where, she was sure she would remember a face as handsome as his...and those eyes so intensely focused on her made her weak in the knees.

"Ms. Sonders?"

"I'm sorry Jack. What were you saying?' She asked turning her attention back to the good looking gentleman in front of her. Jack Whitfield her oldest and most trusted adviser smiled at her continuing his speech.

"The new line seems too have made a good impression overseas." He touched her elbow. She would have sworn she heard a growl or something come from behind her or maybe it was her mind playing tricks on her. As it was her side was throbbing and it was becoming harder to ignore the pain. Odd through. Almost a year had past and her birthmark hadn't bothered her but tonight something was different. She just couldn't pin point it.

"That bit of information just made my day." She smiled at him. Over his shoulder she saw a face that she hadn't seen in months. Her heart raced as joy filled her. Excusing herself from Jacks presence, walking through the crowd her eyes stayed focused on her target even as she continued to greet her guest.

"Melody." She almost screamed as she reached her big bellied sister and hugged her as tight as she could without putting too much pressure on her stomach. "Where have you been?" She asked once she let go of her embrace.

"I've been a little busy." Melody gave a devilish grin. Shaking her head at her baby sister it still amazed her how close they had become over the last year or so. Before they could barely stay in the same room without wanting to strangle each other but then she had a dream that she had come close to losing her. That dream had left her paralyzed in fear. She awoke in a cold sweat and immediately dialed her sisters cell. When she heard her voice the greatest relief she had ever felt rolled over her. Right then and there she had poured her heart out to her little sister. The two had cried on the phone for what felt like hours, by the time Harmony hung up the phone she vowed to never push her sister away again. Though she doesn't see her as much as she would like they talk everyday.

"I see Radien has been keeping you entertained." With that she gave a pointed stare to her sister's out stretched belly, which Melody rubbed a manicured hand over as her face flushed.

"Something like that."

"So where is mister mom." Harmony couldn't suppress the laugh that vibrated through her at her sister's frown. She couldn't help it, she had only met him a hand full of times but each time she saw him he was hovering over her sister like an emotional madman.

"I resent that comment." His thunderous voice boomed from behind Harmony. She turned to face him but he had already made his way to her sister. She frowned. How did he move that fast? Shrugging her shoulders she let it go.

*************************************************************
With her drink in her hand she watched them glide effortlessly across the dance floor. Their movements harmonized, not even her sister's big belly seemed to slow their movements. Harmony watched with an ache in her heart as the pair. It was clear that they were in love, the glow in her sister's face when ever he came around showed as much. The was she leaned into as they moved touched Harmony the same way that the possessive hand Radien placed on the small of Melody's back. The intensity that he stared at her showed a possession that claimed her as his and no one would come between them.

She was glad her sister had found love. She remembered the first time she had met Radien. He had made the hairs on her arms stand and gave of this dark aura that made her want to run and hide. She had wondered if her sister had made the right choice but when she had watched them together, the way he softened to Melody's touch made her realize that he would never do anything to hurt her and that made him o in Harmony's book. Even though she found it strange that he always wore a pair of dark glasses. She has never seen his eyes.

It actually amused her how protective Radien was over her sister. Every time she saw Melody, Radien wasn't too far behind. The bigger her sister's belly became the more protective he became, though she didn't think that was possible.

"Sickening isn't it?" She hadn't hear him approach her, hadn't even turned her head to look at him but she instantly knew who he was. well she had an idea of who it was.

"Most days." She responded as she tried to ignore the sudden increase of vibrations that her mark was suddenly giving off. She sipped her drink as she felt his intense stare on her, making her shift her weight.

He made her nervous and she didn't even know him. Nervous. a word she never associated with herself. She didn't nervous or lose her nerve, that wasn't in her. She was always confident in herself but under the heavy gaze of this strange man her heart rate quickened, her breathing became rapid and her palms began to sweat.

All this and she hadn't even turned to face him.

She heard him give a light chuckle, her heart skipped a beat. The soft sound was intoxicating, sending shivers down her spine. She wondered what his laugh would sound like. Smooth like the sound of his voice or deep and resonating from his chest.

"Love...isn't it great." His sarcastic tone made her smile. Finally she turned to look at him. When she did his emerald green eyes held her captive. Their intensity made them shine with bits of golden specks.

"Adien." He extended his hand. Bringing her hand to his lips he kissed her knuckles. She hadn't noticed that she had given him her hand nor did she realize she was holding her breath until she released it.

"Harmony." She said breathlessly as she continued to study his face. Youthful and masculine with a straight nose, square jaw, high cheek bones. She wanted to trace the curve of his top lip with her tongue. He would make the sexiest cover model jealous.

"A pleasure." He smiled slowly releasing her hand. She could still feel the power of his touch. His smile was dazzling, showing off a set of pearl white teeth that dentist only hoped to create. "I take it you are the host of this amazing party." He continued, waving the bartender down.

"That I am." She returned the smile. When she did she saw his eyes focus on her lips. He licked his lips and a rush of heat went through her body. She found herself picturing those lips on her body. Her breathing caught as she imagined how his lips would feel against her body...over her stomach. around her side tracing the outline of her birthmark.

"Sir?" The voice of the bartender brought her back to reality.

"Gin and tonic." Adien answered without taking his gaze away from her.

The bartender nodded then turned his attention to her. "Ms. Sonders anything for you." He asked with a raised brow.

"Another martini." She ordered her drink and returned back to watching her sister on the dance floor. She had to distract herself from both the man standing next to her along with the vibration of her mark.

Adien followed her gaze back to his brother and his mate. The couple was currently swaying back and forth to the soft music that played, staring into each others eyes like they were the only two in the room...it made Adien sick.

He turned his attention back to the woman at his side. he couldn't keep his eyes off her. Every time he looked at her the memory of her in his arms with nothing but a towel covering her went through his mind. Remembering the feel of her in his arms, the way the water had flowed down her body made him rock hard. When he had noticed the change in her breathing a few minutes ago along with the smile she had given him made him want to take her into his arms and ravage her on the bar.

Such a pervert Adien. He scolded himself but he couldn't stop his thoughts. He needed to focus, now more so than ever. since Iraon was freed there had been a shift in power. It had taken the blood of Melody to free Iraon so it only made since that all the other sisters blood was needed to open the other two cages to free the other two beast. In the last year Iraon had been busy trying to find the locations of the other beast, with the help of that treacherous bitch Thana, Adien was sure it was only a matter of time before the beast found what he was looking for.

Which led him to the reason he was here tonight, if Iraon needed Harmony's blood he would have to go through Adien. And he was dying to get his hands on the beast. Especially after what he did to his new sister and the danger his God children were in.

He was here as protection. he couldn't forget that. All of them were here as protection. Well everyone except Melody, with her carrying the babies all her power was going to protect the twins leaving none to defend herself with, which of course is why Radien was constantly hovering over her no matter where they were. Not only were the sisters targets but so were the unborn babies.

Dragging his gaze away from his obsession he scanned the room again. Nothing seemed out of place, nothing felt out of place. But then again appearances could be deceiving. He had learned that lesson a long time ago. He recorded every face in the room to his memory, none drew his attention. Except for one woman who kept staring at him from across the room. She looked familiar but he couldn't place her. He frowned at her and she ducked. He shrugged off her weird behavior, writing it off as one on a long list of woman he had been with. He glanced over to a table by the front entrance where his father sat with his new mother in law. They were wrapped in each other but Adien knew better than anyone that both were more aware of the people in the room than both him and Radien put together.

Confident that the place was secure he turned his attention back to the woman at his side...well she had been at his side. She was gone now. Puzzled Adien scanned the crowed. He found her on the dance floor in the arms of another man, smiling as she was twirled to the music.

Adien felt jealously course through his body and he was moving toward her before he knew it. Pushing past the people in his way, ignoring the pleased smile of his sister and the scowl on his brother's face.

Adien calm down before you scare half these people to death. His father's voice echoed in his head. He would have ignored him if he hadn't locked gazes with her and saw a flash of heat in her golden gaze. Taking two deep breaths he approached her, as she danced her gaze never wavered from his. He saw that the closer he got the more rapid her breathing became.

"Can I cut in?" Adien managed to keep the growl from his voice...barely.

"Wait your turn." The man responded then turned his back to Adien.

"Wrong answer." His anger getting the better of him Adien gripped the man by his shoulder smiling as the little man winched in pain. Turning the man around Adien stared down at him. "I wasn't really asking." This time Adien did growl as he pushed the man aside and wrapped his arm around his obsession's waist possessively pulling her to him. "May I have this dance." He looked down at her as he swayed them to the music.

"It seems you already have." she said softly as she looked into his eyes.

"Yes I have." He smiled as he spun her and brought her back to him. He admired her fluid movements. He could see why she was named Harmony, her movements harmonized with his. He found himself lost in her gaze as they moved together. Unaware that every eye in the room was on them he twirled her,
spun her, and dipped her. She fit so perfectly to his body that he refused to let her go,

She was tall but she loved when a man was able to make her feel small compared to him. Which is exactly the way Adien made her feel as they danced. He wasn't nearly as bulky or muscled as her sister's husband but he wasn't no small man either. She could tell that he had more than enough strength and power in his strong hold than most men had in their entire bodies. He was an elogant dancer, she couldn't stop herself from following his lead, even as his touch on her bare back made her heart skip a beat and her body hummm with desire. As they moved she couldn't tare her gaze away from his. Once again he was looking at her with an intensity that made her want to melt into him

Inhaling deeply his scent wrapped around her senses. He smelled like the earth. Like the wild and beautiful tress of the exotic forest. Wild, powerful, and all male, she couldn't stop herself from inhaling more of him.

He dipped her again. When he did a lock of hair feel in front of his face. She couldn't help but raise her hand to push the lock back behind his ear. It was then she noticed he had the softest hair she had ever felt, layered it feel just above his neckline. His face and eyes distracted her so much that she didn't care if he had hair or not. But now that she had touched it she took the time to look at it. At first glance it appeared dark brown but looking closer she could see that his hair consisted of different shades of reddish and golden brown. The colors were absolutely beautiful.

"Harmony, such a beautiful name for a beautiful woman." He whispered into her ear as he pressed her closer into his body.

The sound of her name on his lips make her heart skip another beat. Why was he affecting her like this/

"Adien's not too bad either." She smiled at him. She was caught off guard by his next move.

Adien couldn't stop himself nor did he want to. She was a tempting vixen and he was the tempted fox. He had to have a taste of her. His will was already breaking as her body moved against his while they danced but the sound of his name coming out of her mouth made him picture her screaming it as he drove himself inside her. Then when she smiled at him, her supple lips parting for a breath taking smile the need to claim her lips had become more than he could bare. He captured her lips with his.

At first her shock to his kiss left her momentarily stunned but that evaporated with a sigh as she began to move her mouth against his. Instantly his body hardened even more, making it painful for him to stay in his clothing.

He should not be doing this in public...shit he shouldn't be doing this period,he saw what happened to his brother once he got a taste of his woman. Radien had become dependent on his woman. It's not like Adien didn't want his brother happy but as for himself he had no need to be chained to a female right now whether or not she was his destined mate. But as he mouth moved against his in a decadent rhythm he lost all coherent thought and growled into her mouth....
