Book Description:

 

Marie Josette d’Orgemont, cousin to Louis XVI, watched in horror, as a rogue creature took her husband’s life before turning on her. A powerful vampire swept in and spared her life, but she never suspected that surviving meant immortality or the price she’d have to pay to protect her surviving son.

 

Centuries later in Miami, with her family on the verge of extinction, Marie is preoccupied with the continuation of her human bloodline. When she meets sexy and persistent, Odin Ulfsson, his icy-blue gaze and burning touch are hard to resist.

 

Will a forbidden romance with the Nordic werewolf be the key to her happiness or will it set in motion a wrath that endangers not only her last human heir but her entire existence?

Excerpt :

 

A hot breath burned the top of her shoulder. She froze, realizing too late she had misread the werewolf signaling behind her. How could she have been so careless? She pushed all thoughts of Abby away and mentally prepared to fight.

He towered over her, at least seven feet tall. She was a petite five feet two inches with maybe another four in heels. Despite the differential between them, what disturbed her was his stealth and agility. He had crept up behind her without her sensing him.

As he breathed, he edged closer and closer until their bodies touched and the heat emitting from his body seared through her like brushfire.

A wave of desire, fanned by the heat of his skin, coursed through her with such momentum she swayed toward him. She was dimly aware of the sheer insanity of her predicament. One minute she was fighting a lesser of his kind and the next she swelled with desire for this werewolf. What was happening to her?

He leaned into her and nudged her neck.

She couldn’t move, could only stand there and suffer the exquisite heat of their bodies molded together.

He growled, and she closed her eyes, absorbing his scent. Unlike what she had just fought, he smelled like the earth scorched by sunlight. He was exciting, and images of a blazing hearth and tangled limbs came to mind. She wanted him and the realization was as surprising as it was embarrassing.

She tilted her face up and was immediately lost in the gold depths of his eyes, more human than beast. Different. Time and place disappeared into nothingness.

He reached for her finally and the movement snapped their connection.

“State your business,” she hissed. Her hands closed into fists.

He sniffed.

“Enough, dog.” She struck him, jolting him backward. He was quicker and bigger than the others but still no match for her. Or was he? She dismissed the errant thought. He was just an animal and she was a Princess of the Blood with the essence of an ancient master running through her.

Catching him by the mane, she flipped him forward. The huge blond and silver-haired thing landed hard in front of her, but immediately recovered, jumping up into an offensive position. He growled, but didn’t attack. He backed away as upright as a human, with hind claws that clanked on the gravel.

His neck stretched and the aura around him thickened and sizzled. After a couple of pops, he shifted from wolf mixture into full naked human.

She gaped.

Old Graves in North Texas

Back in August when the Souls Around the World blog hop was brought up to me, my first thought was I am not a writer, but quickly changed to cool!  Then I started thinking what goes bump in the night?

Vampires, Werewolves, Witches… all these go bump in the night, but I don’t really fear these thanks to paranormal writers making them sexy 🙂 .

So anyway I was wondering what could I contribute? I googled haunted Texas, and got about 2 million results.

I was planning on going to explore Mckinney so I googled Haunted Mckinney.

That is when I learned about Pecan Grove Cemetery.

Grave-2-1024x768

Pecan Grove is one of the oldest cemeteries in North Texas. In fact many early Texas pioneers, Governors and even gunslingers are buried here. Heroes of the Texas Revolution, veterans of the Mexican War, the War for Southern Independence are also here. It was formally incorporated in 1870, the earliest grave dates from 1854.

I found many graves some very very old. There really were a lot of military men buried here and I also noticed a large Masonic influence.

It was very hot but at the same time there was a very peaceful element to this graveyard.

Everything I read indicated it was a very active for the paranormal influence. I was there during the heat of the day, so maybe the ghosts were smart and stayed out of the heat… but I felt nothing except quiet.

Overall, I am not one for graveyards, as I don’t believe in distrubing final resting places, but this spot is historical, and it is nice to be reminded of those who died for our freedoms.

Until next time.

Jen vs The Cubicle

I am pretty good with change, but when I was trying to decide on a new name for my Texas Travel Girl website I just couldn’t let it go.  I love the name too much, but at the same time I felt it was not “right” for what I wanted to do.

So I thought long and hard about it and I decided two sites would work better for me, and I always joke that my main goal in life is to escape my cubicle as often as possible, and the name Cubicle Escapee was  born.

Truth is, I often feel as if I am battling my cubicle. 

I hate working in a cubicle, zero sunlight, I stare at a computer all day, so much time is spent on the phone, and GOD help me when I am sitting next to someone that is sick and hacking up a lung (eww!) .. it is truly dreadful.  Yes, I have looked for something a little more exciting and I have found those jobs tend to offer 10 WHOLE DAYS in PTO.  I currently have 25.

No thanks,  I will take this cubicle over some other dreadful job that gives only 10 measly days.

for now anyway

Even as a child I loved traveling, especially trips to the beach :)

I don’t really just escape my cubicle for International travel, although believe me I do try to plan that as often as possible, but I find that weekends are a great way to escape too. There are a lot of wonderful escapes out there.

"running" a local race, I struggled, but then again I could have been at work...

I am dedicating this site to the every day person, who works and has to use their days off & PTO to travel.   People like me.

I will write about saving money for that RTW trip I am dreaming of taking.  I however will not be doing this trip for a VERY long time, so these posts won’t be too overwhelming, until I decide to get serious about it.  I only have $18 in my savings for that trip, I know I want to do it, but I need a few things to line up first.  So while I save casually I need a few debts to end before I can get really serious about it. All my Rio 2016 posts will be here from now on too.  I am very serious about getting to Rio for the Olympics. It will be a once in a lifetime opportunity.  The first Olympics in South America?  Count me in.  Even if I am eating rice & ramen for every meal in 2016. 🙂

I will write about food, road trips, budgets, flights & international trips, when I finally take one.  There will be a lot of Disney, Nerdy trips & possibly  a book review or two (especially when I am broke and all I can afford to do is get to and from work!) If it involves being away from work, it will be here 🙂

I will defeat this blasted cubicle

Sometimes Pixie Dust maybe needed to escape

When I take a cheap trip, which I do often, I will let you know how I did.

Us Cubicle Junkies have to stick together after all!  Because, any cubicle junkie knows, you really must escape as often as possible or you will go INSANE! 

Thanks for coming around. 🙂
