Julie's Ascent by Emily Walker Spotlight



When Julie Monroe ends up in Hell, she has no idea why she was there.

The things she knows are: she's dead, she's transparent, and she been given a second chance.

Kind of.

Given the opportunity to return to Earth as a Succubus, she wants the chance to get out of Hell--but she isn't too keen on sucking souls for the Underworld. To make things even more complicated, she has a huge crush on her mentor, (name here). He's been in the business of the Succubae for hundreds of years, and Julie can't help but feel drawn to him.

Convinced she can escape, Julie believes that she can run away and hide. But, as she discovers different dimensions of Hell on Earth, she starts to realize that maybe there isn't a way to escape her fate.

EXCERPT

He doesn’t apologize. He just smiles an unnerving smirk and continues telling me about the world in which I would soon belong. I wonder if he is trying to anger me on purpose to see what I can do. Making me angry is not good for him, I don’t
 know how I know that, but I can feel the power at the end of my consciousness and it is a scary sensation.
“You will have to watch that temper, too, Julie. It will get you into trouble. Another thing you should know is it’s very easy for a succubus such as yourself to go over to the dark side.” He holds up his hand before I can ask him a question. “I know, you are already on the dark side, but you aren’t. You really have no idea how dark things can get, and I promise you the evil that will rape your soul is not worth the thrill you get from letting go.” His dark eyes hide a memory of some sort that he does not wish me to know.

Excerpt

"Hey!" Aria shouted, not that it did anything to stop their fighting. "Enough!" James's voice echoed in the confined space. The men let go of one another and stood, dusting off the dirt caked to their skin. A gentleman with red hair and blue eyes stepped toward Aria. He'd been one of the three fighting, a crewmember on the ship. "Do you know what they're having us do?" he asked. "No," Aria said, glancing back at the die lying on the floor. Aria rolled the large die slightly with her hand. It stood up to her waist in height, though it felt lighter than it looked. She'd never seen a die quite so large. Who made it? "The festival tonight is entertainment for the commander and the tribe. She's choosing two from the pit and they'll have to do whatever the die says." Aria swallowed nervously as she further examined the giant die.

One side showed two people battling with swords. Aria frowned, turning the die onto another side, it revealed a pictograph of two men with guns in a shoot-out. That wouldn't end well for someone. Her heart skipped a beat, and she rolled the die onto another side, covering her lips in surprise. Was that a paddle? Her cheeks burned and she took a step back from the die. James didn't appear nearly as affected as Aria from the news. He stepped forward, resting his hand on her lower back. "Do we know who has been elected for the festival?" Kali shook her head. "The commander chooses two worthy opponents from the pit of invaders and mainlanders. Seeing as how the mainlanders have assimilated or died," Kali said, clearing her throat, "it's safe to say that one of you that has not been chosen by a tribe member, will be selected."

Author Q&A

Anything you can tell us about yourself that your readers may not know.

I used to be a professional wedding and portrait photographer. Then one day I got really sick (Autonomic Dysfunction) and had to give it up. I turned to writing, which had only been a hobby and focused on it full-time, developing it into a career.

How long have you been writing and who influenced you?

I started writing fiction in college, but my first dive in was with poetry while in high school. I never submitted my writing or even shared the poetry with anyone!

What inspires you while you were writing?

Different things can spark my creativity! My best friend is getting married in Australia. Well she lives in Australia too, but in order for me to make the journey there, it means a lot more writing and publishing to pay for my ticket, hotel, food, etc. Plus with a 22 hour plane flight and jet lag, you've got to stay at least a week, maybe two to make it worthwhile. Having that goal helps keep me motivated.

One of your favorite quotes.

Books give a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything. - Plato

Excerpt #1 - Steamy

Her whimpers are becoming frantic as my tongue chases hers in a sexy game of foreplay. Slowly I break off the kiss and travel back down her abdomen until I reach her panties. Tucking the edge of them in my teeth I remove my fingers from her as I proceed to pull her panties off with my mouth.
Cassidy watches me with pure adoration and passion in her eyes until I flick her clit with my tongue and her eyes roll back in her head. “God Zack…only you” she whimpers. When my tongue travels down her sweet, slick pussy, and slips inside she convulses around me screaming my name. There is nothing in this world sweeter than the taste of my vixen on my tongue.
Once I’ve let her fully ride out her orgasm in my mouth I kiss my way back up her body enjoying every single curve as I go. I’m nestled between her legs and she reaches down and guides me inside of her.
So. Fucking. Hot.
When I’m all the way in, I pull her hips up closer to me and ask the question I already know the answer to. “Only me what baby?” She’s moving under me trying to get me to move but I hold her hips steady and stop her. “Answer me if you want me to move. Only me what?”
She blushes and it’s the cutest fucking thing I’ve ever seen. I’m buried balls deep inside my vixen and she still gets embarrassed to tell me what I already know she meant. “Only you can make me fall apart Zack, Only you will ever have my heart.”
Damn straight only me.

Promo: MOONLIGHT RIDER by Charlotte Boyett Compo





KEYNOTE:




Declan Farrell, earl of Dungannon and the famous highwayman known as “the Gypsy,” is about to have his heart stolen by the very woman he intends not to marry.



BACK COVER COPY:



STAND AND DELIVER


Declan Farrell, earl of Dungannon and the son of the duke of Arlington, is a nobleman of the highest order, dissolute and a thief. He is a drinker and a lover, and at night he is “the Gypsy,” a highwayman who prowls from the city of Boreas to Chappendale Forest.


And yet, his heart is true. Impelled by a tragic past, he steals from the rich and gives to the poor, offers hope to those who cannot fight their fate. So much was taken from him, which is why he gives. He himself is undeserving of love and happiness, but there are those who are worthy, like Lady Althea Standfield, daughter to the duke of Oxmoor. Independent and kind, beautiful and smart, she must be freed from the obligation of marrying him. His heart might be stolen by a woman of such fine form and finer character...but his heart is all that he has left, and it is perfectly protected.






#1






She licked her lips—wondering what his would taste like. How the sculpted muscles that undulated beneath the wet shirt would feel against her palms. How tight those brawny arms would hold her.


His smile widened, became knowing and he began to slide his hand slowly up and down the handle of the pitchfork in a suggestive way.


Althea stumbled away from the window, turned then looked wildly about her.


She had to have him.


Declan Farrell.


She must have him whether he was willing or not.




If it was the last thing she ever did, she would claim that man as her own!

#2


“I have such need for you, wench,” he said.


That was more than evident to her. He was close enough for her to feel the tip of his cock pressing against her body.


The laces undone, he pushed her nightdress over her shoulders and it fell from her arms, rippled down her body to pool at her feet. Before she could take another breath, he snaked his arms around her, put his hands to her rump and lifted her. She wrapped her legs around his waist, her arms around his neck and kissed him. He took three steps to her bed, turned and drew her down with him to the narrow mattress.


From their very first night together she had known he would always be a gentle—and thorough—lover. He always put her pleasure before his own and this night was no different. His hard body covered hers, his delicious weight pressing her into the covers, and he smoothly eased her thighs apart with his hips. His lips moved to her chin, her neck, the sensitive sweep of flesh between neck and shoulder and then he was gliding down her. The moment his mouth closed over her straining nipple, she arched toward him. His low chuckle vibrated against that turgid peak to send chills down her sides.





A southerner transplanted to Iowa, Charlotte Boyett-Compo (her friends call her Charlee) is a multi-published author of almost all sub-genres of Romance fiction. Under the Mayhaw Tree is her 100th book. Over the years, her novels have won critical acclaim and many awards.

excerpt

Black Hills Forever excerpt:


Maybe it was over before it really had a chance to begin. She hoped that her parents would understand why they were separating in less than a year of marriage. This certainly wasn’t what she had in mind at all. The gold and brown flowered recliner was a welcome respite. She sat down gingerly and adjusted the little pillow for her lower back. Closing her eyes as she sat back and rested her head on the padding, Lacey tried to calm her pounding heart. Her stomach was tight and her lower back was aching profoundly.


She heard the floor creak before she heard his voice.


“I’m sorry, Lace. I can’t leave.”


She didn’t open her eyes. She didn’t want to see what a mess he was and hope that she could somehow clean him up. It wasn’t her job. Besides that, Travis had always been the level-headed one and she the emotional one. The tables had somehow been turned and she could say definitely that she disliked it vehemently.


“I am sure I can go stay with my parents or Janell.” Lacey didn’t want to get out of the chair.


“No.”


“Well I admit it isn’t ideal, but that way I won’t be alone.” Lacey continued, ignoring the rise in his voice.


“You’re not alone.”


“I am, but this little one will make its debut soon. I’ll be sure to send you pictures.”


She was baiting him. Still she kept her head leaning against the chair and her eyes firmly closed.


“Like hell you will!” Travis was all attention now and she could hear his steps as he moved across the floor. “That child is mine.”


The thickness of the energy in the room could be cut with a knife. She could hear him panting and wondered how his head was feeling this morning.


“It is mine too. I’ve been too sick to move. I’ve been so dizzy that I faint. I’ve been on an emotional roller coaster and I’ve spent the last five days feeling like I’m doing this alone. I can’t go on this way. If you aren’t in this with me, I’m out.” Her voice rose in octaves that had to have his head splitting. When she opened her eyes to the silence, she found him only a couple feet away looking at her seriously.


“You can’t leave me.” The command she knew was coming, but hoping he could back it up. Alone the words sounded weak and pleading.


“I can.” Lacey shifted in the chair, feeling peculiar to say the least. “I know what Rip meant to you and I’m sorry for what happened. The drinking and anger has to stop or you’ll lose me too.” She stared into his blue eyes and saw the fear clouded by the hangover.


“I know. It will. Please don’t leave me.” He went to his knees in front of the chair. His hands clasped together and his face contorted in contrition.
