BLURB 

As one house dies, another is formed…


Near the overworld city of Sicyon, a female drow monk, VHAIDRA, helps her house escape the evil machinations of a rival house of the underworld, only to arrive at what appears to be sudden death at the hands of the mortal enemies of the drow, the high elves. But a zealous male human cleric of The Way, NIKODEMOS, is witness to the attack and could be the one thing that changes her DESTINY forever. VHAIDRA’s troubles have only just started, and they will only multiply in the overworld, where most people don’t trust or like her kind.


DESTINY soon has them meet a flirtatious female gold wood dwelf, TI’ERRA, and a stern male half-orc wizard, ELDER DIONYSIOS, just as the Cult of the Jet Fist drives our adventurers out of Sicyon. Will this diverse group be able to co-exist? Will they be able to form a cohesive team to fight the goblins, ogres, dragons, cyclopes and other creatures that they encounter on the way? Will they ever be able to return home? Find the answers to these questions and more as the goddess known as the DARK MAIDEN starts drawing a line of DESTINY from the past to the future intersecting with the lifelines of VHAIDRA and NIKODEMOS!

Excerpt

I fight waking up as long as I can. My foggy mind fights to piece the puzzle pieces together as I take inventory of myself. It’s been a long time since I woke up naked with a tingling soreness down south, and this soreness is pretty bad. After I pull together the courage to glance at the male arm wrapped around my middle, relief floods me when I don’t find Dooley’s spider and dragon tattoos running up and down the huge, muscular arm.
Slowly, my mind fills with the memories of Zander returning with his sweats while I checked out the massive marble and glass bathroom attached to his guest bedroom. One minute, I was reaching for the clothes in his hands; the next, I was lying across the bed naked while Zander shed all his clothes. What followed was a frantic mating of teeth, tongues, and all other body parts we could use on each other. The huge cock digging into my ass tells me he didn’t bother to redress after our marathon lovemaking. Last night was another bad decision to add to my growing list of horrible choices. It’s time I listen to the lectures I’ve been giving myself for months. This man’s touch goes straight to my heart like no other’s, but I still need to take time and change my life before getting into another relationship.
I can tell when Zander jerks awake behind me because his entire body stiffens. I want to kick myself for lying here, reminiscing about last night instead of taking the chance to flee for a few minutes to gather myself. At this point, I realize there’s a phone ringing somewhere. Zander jumps from the bed, and I can’t stop myself from watching his broad, naked body disappear down the hall.
I’m debating my poor decisions a few minutes later when Zander stomps back into the room wearing a robe. He throws another pair of sweats at me. “Get a shower and your ass dressed. I’ll meet you downstairs in a few. We have to get down to TBD.”

Welcome to Creekwood…

Angela
Head down, eyes peeled for any opportunity to get off the dead-end course my mother carelessly paved for me years ago.
My plan takes a sharp turn landing me directly across the hall from Creekwood’s resident bad boys. The three streetbike riding misfits are as stubborn as they are sexy. And they. Are. Sexy. Especially the one with the mocha swirl eyes watching my every move.
But even the six-foot hallway separating us can’t keep the overbearing trio from constantly getting in my way.
When my past threatens to catch up with me, I quickly learn not every detour promises an easier route, no matter how tempting my new neighbors might make it look.  

Coty
Head up, eyes locked on anything threatening to throw me off the carefully constructed path I have mapped out.
I live my life the same way I ride my bike, never once regretting the roads I’ve chosen.
Lately though, after years of the same scenery, everything’s starting to blur together. It’s only when our elusive neighbor girl comes out of nowhere that I realize what’s been missing.
And now that I have, I don’t think I can let her pass by so quickly. At least not without proving the lengths I’ll go for her first.
