Sneak Peek Sunday - AEQUANA'S QUEST

Welcome to Sneak Peek Sunday!

Here are six paragraphs from my upcoming release, AEquana's Quest, Book 2 of the AEquana Series.

Blurb: It will take a very long time before AEquana heals from the abuse and torture she endured growing up in those government labs. But Talon's love is helping her forget and go forward with life.

Unfortunately, they stumble onto a multi-million dollar gem heist, and are targeted by those who think they're easy prey. Their enemies have no idea who they're up against when they try to take on an ex-Navy SEAL and his mermaid.

1. As she strapped the transmitter around her wrist, he glanced over her as she lay sprawled on the bottom of the boat, the tail's horizontal flukes arched over his tank of oxygen. The plasti-sheen skin glistened in the mid-morning sun. The suit adhered to her with its microscopic inner layer of adhesive, but it did nothing to shield her with any kind of protective covering. Heat and cold could easily penetrate the fine layer, as well as could probing eyes—which was the biggest reason why Talon refused to let anyone else come within sight of his wife once she’d prepared herself. Or else they would be able to see everything about her. Everything, including every inch of her cream-colored skin, the thatch of snowy curls at the juncture of her thighs, and those enticing dusky-rose nipples. Only a set of twenty-seven tiny puncture-like scars circling around her left hip, thigh, and buttocks marred her perfection. Talon knew every one of those scars, left behind by a bull shark’s attack a few months before. He knew them, had since kissed each one of them, and had learned a lot about himself in the days that had followed.
2. Reaching over, he lifted her chin so he could see into her face. Her eyes were expressionless. Waiting. “We’re going to take this slow and very, very carefully. First thing, right off the bat, when you meet Giles, if in any way you feel uncomfortable or uneasy around him, let me know immediately and we’ll call the whole thing off. Do you understand what I’m saying? You’re going to run this show. Not me. Not Giles. You. You will have the ability to stop any process, any examination with a simple word. And I’m going to be beside you every second, every step of the way.”

3. Jeters watched the SUV pull into the parking lot of the canoe rental shop and stopped. A moment later two people he instantly recognized emerged from the vehicle and strode over to where he was waiting by his patrol car. The big Indian was as intimidating-looking as he remembered. But, if anything, the willowy beauty taking his hand had grown more intoxicating.

4. “If you already knew the answer, why did you ask? Besides, having two pairs of eyes down there might help us find those diamonds quicker. And the sooner we can do that and go home, the happier I’ll be.” He turned around so she could see the worry he would no longer hide from her. “You’re not yourself, my love. And I swore to myself that day I took you out of that bunker I would never let any thing or any one ever hurt you again.”

5. She silently handed it over, then watched as he withdrew a hammer from behind the driver's seat. Closing the door, he went around to her side of the vehicle where he would be shielded from traffic. Placing both phones on the cement, he proceeded to pound them into oblivion. Æquana watched in the rearview mirror as he attacked the devices with something akin to viciousness. As if by demolishing them, he was getting back at Santo Mario for all the trouble and worry the man had caused. Venting his frustration in a way that would temporarily gratify his need for retribution.

6. Unable to resist, he lovingly kissed her again. "We're going to find out who this shark is. And when we do, and I promise we will, Deb is going to make certain he spends a long time behind bars. But in the meantime, I can't risk him getting his hands on you. The last time that happened, I thought I had lost you, and I nearly came unglued. I can't risk that happening again. Do you understand? That's why you and Buck need to hang back. If something does happen to me, the team will take you both away from here, out of harm's reach, where they can safeguard you. Maja, promise me you'll do that. For me. Because you love me."

Amanda Storey was sent by her company to a tiny rural town to convince the community that having a chain mega-supermarket built there would be a boon to their economy and job market.
She never showed up for the town hall meeting, even though the company insists she was scheduled to be there.  The motor inn where she had reservations claimed she never checked in, and police have not found any trace of her body or her car.

This is what really happened.

A Sensuously Erotic Urban Fantasy/ Paranormal Romance
Music And Press
ISBN 978-1-4507-1947-6
Word Count: 28.1K

They are the cause of many legends, myths, and fairy tales. And they still live among us.

There are creatures from a parallel world called Breachers who, for hundreds of years, have been inadvertently pulled into our world. They are the truth behind the creatures normally considered to be mythic. Once on Earth, they cannot go back, and those who cannot cope become rabid. Murderers. And when they go berserk, they must be put down.

Jerrod Holt always wondered why he was selected to be part of the secret governmental organization. More perplexing is why his skills as a professional bodyguard are needed.

He discovers his partner assigned to help him bring down a Breacher is the one woman who had caught his eye the moment he saw her at their initial group meeting. Together, he and McKenna travel to Utah to confront a killer beast, not knowing that the terror will be all too real, and too damn close to home.

Warning: Contains bloody deaths, smart ass remarks, unbearable cold, a nightmare come to life, toe loss, rabbit farming, a search for the truth, and an unconditional love that defies all boundaries.
