“I’d come back to you a thousand times.”

Vampire and warlock, Roman Lee, spent centuries alone as ringmaster of the carnival. After befriending and healing a scarred, young woman, Roman realizes Mariah is his mate. He waits for her, but when she departs from his life, his torture knows no bounds. Now he’s risen, unforgiving and angry, forced from his grave by the one woman who captured his heart, but will another secret and the call of his mate change everything?

The steady call of Roman’s blood and the promise of peace brings Mariah Stone home to the carnival and the vampire she left behind. He ignores her until she forces him from the grave with her blood. His anger crushes her already broken spirit, but she is determined to win Roman’s forgiveness and free him from their bond. Denied passion leads them down a path of magic and desire, while a devastating secret threatens eternal love.

Roman studied the perfection before him with something akin to regret filling his spirit. It should have been different between them. He momentarily questioned his decision before setting the ruby stone on her bedside table. In a whisper, he began to chant the words that would strengthen their connection and seal Mariah’s healing so it couldn’t be undone by anyone, ever.

Blood exchanged will seal my gift

The flesh will stay, no spell will lift

Let the night be filled with dreams

So she won’t remember it was me

Roman lifted his hands, palms up, to begin the next part of the spell using the stone, but when Mariah moved in her sleep and threw one leg out from under the covers, he didn’t know if he could do it. Bare flesh, creamy and soft, slid along the quilt as Mariah moaned in her sleep and spoke his name. A dull light formed inside the ruby stone, strengthening with Mariah’s moans. Roman closed his eyes against the onslaught of desire brushing against his body and soul. It sought entrance, control, and a response. She must be dreaming of him. It was the only explanation. His eyes snapped open when the bed creaked. Heavy-lidded, sleepy eyes opened with a reddish glow lighting their dark depths.

“Mariah?” Roman spoke her name as a question, not fully understanding what was happening, but the stone did. Brilliant red light shot from the ruby’s rough edges, saturating the walls, the floors, and everything in between in its glow. Roman tilted his face as Mariah rose from her reclined position to sit on the side of the bed. A trickle of unease sped down his spine. This wasn’t supposed to happen. Mariah was using the stone against him, and her desire magnified his own, fed off it, and seduced in strong waves. Roman groaned as his cock swelled painfully and his body clenched with need.

“Do you come to me as a warlock, vampire, or as man?”

The question was asked so softly Roman wasn’t sure he heard her voice. Mariah’s eyes blazed with color. She was a temptress, a woman bent on crushing what remained of his heart, and he hated her for it. Roman pinched the bridge of his nose when the truth reared its ugly head, forcing him to accept what was meant to be. He craved her like no other. This would be the one and only night they ever spent together. The spell was cast, and she shouldn’t remember anything, so for once, he let the caged passion soar. “I come to you as all three.”

Spotlight: Crimson Moon + Giveaway

Crimson Moon
Red Moon Prophecy Book 1
by Addison Carmichael
Genre: Paranormal Romance

 

Do vampires and werewolves really exist? Worse, did Amelia Kellar fall in love with one?
 
After the humiliating breakup with her intern boyfriend, Amelia Kellar is ready to forget love forever and move forward with her life working as a registered nurse at Everett Memorial Hospital in Washington State. That is, until she very literally runs into their unearthly hot new chief resident of the ER nightshift, Ethan Valter.
 
But as her attraction to this brilliant, compassionate British doctor grows, so does her unwilling suspicion that this mysterious man is hiding something.
 
Something huge. And possibly deadly.
 
Such as a coverup to the murder of a fellow ER nurse and another that took place Halloween night after their work party, both killed in the same gruesome way—bleeding out from a single bite wound found on their necks.
 
Then when another ER staff member is found inside her car in the hospital’s parking garage also dead by exsanguination, she is certain Ethan Valter is somehow connected. Now Amelia Kellar fears that everyone’s backhanded joke of Ethan being a vampire isn’t so far off. Which means she needs to find out whether he really is the ultimate love of her life…or his next deadly meal.
 
* For fans of paranormal romance shifters, werewolves, vampires, wizards, mages, sorcerers.

Excerpt

 

My heart flutters at this revelation. I can no longer allow this confinement to be my undoing. I scream once more, this time reaching my arm through the barrier, and he grabs my forearm. His touch is warm against my cool skin. Electricity rushes from the top of my head down through the tips of my toes. Automatically, I point my toes as I filter the energy throughout every part of my body at his touch.

The White Wolf joins his pack in a ceremonial wail that sends the rocks crashing down the cliff side, hurling in my partner’s direction. Next, the entire sea floor erupts like a volcano, thrusting me upward, causing me to leave the heated hands of my enticing stranger. The imploding waterfall cradles me as it carries me higher above the sea floor and away from the stranger. The volcano-like eruption plunges me once more, tossing me on the bough of the Great Oak.

I lay across the branch of the Great Oak in the moonlit sky and faintly see the shimmer of the golden leaves as I fall weakly off the tree onto the earth beneath me. I stay still in quiet fear as I hear panting from behind me. Turning slightly, I see the White Wolf now at my side.

About The Author


Wife of one. Mom of three plus a Beagle.

Well, at least that’s how I’m described in the confines of my everyday life.

Writing has always been second nature to me. I spent my childhood creating short stories and my collegiate years writing for the campus paper (Go TERPS!) Jump twenty years to the present–I’m still writing. At my day job I spend most of my time writing capability briefs, white papers, proposals–you name it.

Then one day it hit me! It was time to access my own creative power and bring to life the characters I’ve created in my mind.

In addition to enjoying life with my amazing family, I can usually be found with my head in a book, binging my favorite shows, and watching movies with jaw-dropping scores! (I love all things Danny Elfman!)

I hope you enjoy my first book, Beautiful Nightmare. It has everything you’d look to find in a paranormal romance-urban fantasy-new age novel. Vampires. Wolves. Love. And so much more!
