Soundtrack - Caressed by the Edge of Darkness

2016
Certain songs can just strike a cord. They can trigger emotions, drudge up memories (good and bad). Well, this morning a few songs helped me better understand my characters and their world. I'm currently working on Caressed by the Edge of Darkness (Rulers of Darkness #5), Gabriel's book. This story has been a long time in the making. I mean, hell, its the 5th book of a 6 book series. However, when I originally mapped out this series it was meant to be the last book, but the characters have led me in a different direction. 

Gabriel has a very complicated back story, like most tortured heroes, and he will have to overcome centuries of pain, mistrust, and bad habits to claim his happily ever after. 

Caressed by the Edge of Darkness:
Hardened by centuries of torture, former blood slave, Gabriel Erhard, is driven by an insatiable need to destroy his enemies. Violence darkens his battered soul, leaving no place for mercy in his world. Gabriel’s only desire is vengeance—until he finds her.
Seized by vampires, bound as a slave, and placed on the auction block, Jordan Culver is instantly entranced by the dangerous male who claims her. Jordan’s new captor vows to set her free, but his haunted gaze burns with savage desire and his wicked kiss makes her crave his touch and...complete surrender.

Can Jordan help him overcome the miseries of his past and find a future with her?


Here are the songs on my play list this morning:

1. Seven Chakra - CES cruEvery time I hear this I think of Gabriel's past and his journey from being a blood slaved forced to become a vampire so his Mistress wouldn't lose her favorite pet to mortality, and  how he is now the leader of a strong vampire Clan.  He's "shatter proof". 
2. Get That - CES cru
This song helped me write a few scenes that take place in Gabriel's club. 
3. Raw Sh*t - Travis Barker ft, Tech N9ne & Bun B
Gabriel plays this while in his office at his club and I can see him bump'n it down the street.
4. Not Strong Enough by Apocalyptica
Today's inspirational song for Gabriel and Jordan's relationship:

Please note, songs are explicit.

Teaser Tuesday

Today's teaser is from current work in progress and upcoming release, Caressed by the Edge of Darkness (Rulers of Darkness #5).


Coming Summer 2016

~ Gabriel had wrapped his jacket around her slender shoulders for warmth and decency. The white lingerie she wore was soaked from melted snow and blood, making the delicate material entirely translucent. He reached forward and cranked up the heat.
“Holy f─” Gannon’s curse died as he slapped a hand over his mouth, hiding his fangs.
He held his breath, terrified of losing control. The girl’s blood smelled…delicious and it was everywhere. Crimson darkened her hair and soaked Gabriel’s shirt. Gannon felt his eyes shift, the vampire within him rising, responding to the taunting, luscious scent.
Gabriel gave a deep, low warning growl. The sound snapped Gannon from his trance. He slammed the Hummer into gear, plowing through the snow.
“She’s bleeding out.”
Gabriel didn’t respond. With gentle fingers, he brushed aside the snow dampened and blood soaked hair from Jordan’s too pale face. The pad of his thumb stroked her blue hued lips.~

Caressed by Moonlight
Dorian Vlakhos is no ordinary aristocrat. He is a vampire king, who will do anything to save his clan from complete annihilation, before an ancient curse can claim his immortal life.
Penniless and orphaned, Victoria Kingston has nothing to bring to a marriage, yet she must shackle an unsuspecting gentleman into marriage by the end of the month or forfeit her rights as guardian of her younger sister.

Caressed by Night
Dimitri Arsov, the last remaining pure vampire, was thought to be dead for the past four hundred years. Now, he is back and has a score to settle with the traitor that had tried to kill him centuries ago. But as he waits for his prey to blindly step into his carefully laid trap, his overwhelming hunger for blood is triggered when he saves a beautiful art historian.
Kerstyn Ingmar's life was normal and straight up boring until the night she is rescued by the dangerously sexy, powerfully mesmerizing, Dimitri. Unable to resist his diamond blue eyes and intense kisses, she is drawn into his world of darkness and closer to her impending doom.

To maintain peace with the vampires, Eva Maldonado is offered as a sacrifice to the crazed vampire king by her father, the alpha of the Silveria Shifter Pack. Hadrian's reputation is both legendary and lethal; he is ruthless, bloodthirsty, lusty, and soulless. When Eva arrives at the ancient fortress high in the Carpathian Mountains, she is shocked to find a ravaged man with dark burning eyes filled with loneliness and dangerous desire.
Would she be his lover...or his prey? His savior...or his victim? Would Hadrian lure her into madness or would their perilous passion be their redemption?

A Sexy Twist on Vampires!
 
5 stars "This was a five star all the way for finding a way to add a bit of originality to an age old tale and certainly for creating Dimitri alone.

Looking forward to the weekend...

Some of my favorite authors have recently released some new books - always makes me smile :)
I can't wait to sit down and dive in! Sadly, my time is consumed by work, school, our new house (which is fun) and writing (also fun). So, this summer I'll have to catch up on these:

Sweet Ruin (Immortals After Dark #16) by Kresely Cole

24002318
An immortal assassin is caught between desire and duty...
A foundling raised in a world of humans
Growing up, orphaned Josephine didn’t know who or what she was—just that she was “bad,” an outcast with strange powers. Her baby brother Thaddeus was as perfect as she was flawed; protecting him became her entire life. The day he was taken away began Jo’s transition from angry girl... to would-be superhero... to enchanting, ruthless villain.
A lethally sensual enforcer on a mission
A threat to the Møriør has brought archer Rune the Baneblood to the mortal realm to slay the oldest living Valkyrie. Whether by bow or in bed, he never fails to eliminate his target. Yet before he can strike, he encounters a vampiric creature whose beauty conceals a black heart. With one bite, she pierces him with aching pleasure, taking his forbidden blood - and jeopardizing the secrets of his brethren.
A boundless passion that will lead to sweet ruin...

Could this exquisite female be a spy sent by the very Valkyrie he hunts? Rune knows he must not trust Josephine, yet he’s unable to turn her away. Despite his millennia of sexual conquests, he can’t ignore the unfamiliar longing she arouses deep within him. When Jo betrays the identity of the one man she will die to protect, she and Rune become locked in a treacherous battle of wills that pits ultimate loyalty against unbridled lust.


The Darkest Torment (Lords of the Underworld #12) Gena Showalter
25801632
 
Driven to his death by the demon of Distrust, Baden spent centuries in purgatory. Now he's back, but at what cost? Bound to the king of the underworld, an even darker force, he's unable to withstand the touch of another...and he's quickly devolving into a heartless assassin with an uncontrollable temper. Things only get worse when a mission goes awry and he finds himself saddled with a bride—just not his own.

Famed dog trainer Katarina Joelle is forced to marry a monster to protect her loved ones. When she's taken hostage by the ruthless, beautiful Baden immediately after the ceremony, she's plunged into a war between two evils—with a protector more dangerous than the monsters he hunts. They are meant to be enemies, but neither can resist the passion burning between them...and all too soon the biggest threat is to her heart.
But as Baden slips deeper into the abyss, she'll have to teach him to love...or lose him forever.
