After a terrifying vampire attack in 1810, Ilia Rose spends the next two centuries hunting Sol, the man responsible for turning her and her friends into vampires.When Ilia discovers he’s run to the one place she’s running from, she’s forced to face her most painful memories back in her hometown, Bearwood.

There, Ilia finds herself face to face with Nathaniel, an insanely hot vampire, and despite the evidence he’s working for her enemy, Ilia can’t fight her attraction to him, especially when he seems to show up whenever she needs him most.

But Nathaniel is keeping secrets and as they begin to unravel, instead of running away from him, Ilia finds herself falling for him. When his last secret is revealed Ilia’s past comes together in a way she never imagined and she’s left with only one option: trust Nathaniel to help her kill Sol, or risk relinquishing her new found strength thus causing catastrophic and devastating consequences for her and everyone she loves.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

emma3A weaver of words from a young age, I first started writing when we were given an assignment to do so in school. I can remember being called up to the teacher as she asked me (looking slightly annoyed) “What’s this?” I can’t remember the story but I do remember one of the characters had a stutter and so I explained that to the teacher and she let me go back to my desk. I guess six year olds didn’t write stutters into their work. Well, I did. And I haven’t looked back since. Of course, over the years I wrote many more, none of which I finished, until last year when I read a book and loved it so much that I wanted to be able to do the same – write a book that someone out there would love. So I did. Whether it is loved by one or many remains to be seen, but I did it and I am so happy I did.  It opened the floodgates to so many, many more words. And while I am busy working on ‘Finding Immortal’ the follow up to ‘Fractured Immortal’ I am also writing another book too. I just can’t seem to stop.

I love to talk to people, so if you ever have something you want to say, please do but be warned, it’s very difficult to get me to shut up again 🙂

7.7.7 CHALLENGE- A Peek At My WIP

tumblr_inline_nc45c5ppso1shjyin

No big surprise here … I was included in a 7.7.7 challenge by my good friend, Bill.  He’s mentioned so often on my blog, that I’m not sure an introduction is necessary.  But for anyone that doesn’t know Bill or hasn’t already check out his blog, you can do so now by clicking here.  Really, you should, because he posts some interesting things and is just a neat guy to know.  Besides, he’s working on his first thriller and I can guarantee you’ll want to grab a copy the minute that baby is released!

The 7.7.7 challenge is for the author to go to page 7 of their current WIP (work in progress), skip down to line 7 and then, share the next 7 lines of their manuscript with you.  Okay, I have to admit, I have several WIP …  all in various stages of completion.  I recently updated this blog to include the three that are somewhat, mildly, part of the way finished.  The upside to that?  At least I had choices of what to use in this challenge.  Oddly, I didn’t choose something from any of the three works that I have listed and sadly, I don’t have a name for this piece.

The following scene takes place at an airport baggage claim after two strangers meet on a plane and find out they are staying at the same Mexican Resort.

He stood, admiring her curves as she bent, tossing a layer of blonde hair over her shoulder while checking the nametag on the luggage. He hadn’t realized how pretty she was at first. His only intention had been to try and calm her from the knuckle clutch she had on the armrest. It wasn’t until she turned, the fear completely masking her face, that he noticed the cute indention on her chin. So taken with the beauty mark, he didn’t see the light dusting of freckles across the bridge of her nose or the matching caramel color of her eyes. But once he did, it was hard to look away and hard to hide the smile that kept creeping up.  Finally, he gave in and let it have its way.

Exactly at 7.7.7   What did you expect from a romance?

Since I’m terrible at nominating these things, I’m just going to link you to a couple friends whom have also done the challenge.  Make sure you check out their work, because they are truly some talented folks!

7 Facts- One Lovely Blog Award

There seems to be a trend of these going around.  So far I’ve been nominated to  participate in four different kinds of blog tags/tours and while some may find them bothersome or annoying, I quite love reading everyone’s answers and finding out a little more about my writer friends. This nomination came from my friend Bill.  When Bill started following me on twitter, I saw one thing on his profile that caught my attention.  Whataburger.  Now if you’ve never had this southern delicacy, I’m sorry.  You are truly missing out on one of the best fast food hamburger joints around.  However, Bill and I have more in common other than our taste in food.  Both from the south, we migrated north and live in small-town communities where we share in our loathing of satellite internet.  Bill is currently working on his first thriller and if you’re not following his blog, you should be, because he’s an all around great guy to know.  W.C.Cunningham

7fd5e-onelovelyblogaward

The rules of this blog hop type award are that I share 7 facts about myself, and links to 15 blogs that I enjoy reading. I’ll be honest, I’m terrible at nominating other blogs, because I never want anyone to feel pressured to participate.  However that doesn’t mean I don’t want to continue the trend.  So please, anyone that would like to join in the fun, do so.  I’d love to see your answers and would gladly link your post back to this blog.  I’d also appreciate a link back to mine.  Now what to do?  Share 7 facts about you that we don’t know, and nominate 15 blogs you like (we’ve already discussed this, you choose how you want to handle it.)

Here we go with 7 lovely facts about me:

1. I’ll probably have a few gasp here, but I don’t like chocolate.  Nope, not a fan.  Unless we are talking about Whoppers, which I can eat my own weight in.  No chocolate cake, pie, or ice cream for me.  It’s just never something that I acquired a taste for.  I’m a plain ol’ vanilla kind of girl.

2. I find some of the most inappropriate things funny sometimes.  I should be ashamed, but I’m not.  I think it comes from the built up tension and stress from my day job.  I see, hear and deal with things and people that never seem to amaze me.  Just when I think I’ve heard every story imaginable, somehow someone still surprises me.  So no, nothing I come across ever really sends me into to shock and I’ve learned to take all the ill-humored things in life and laugh at them.  I don’t however embarrass my family and friends by sharing them all on Facebook.  I do put the claim on Pinterest though, so if you follow me there, it’s fair game and I can’t promise that it’s always going to be PG rated.

3. I decorate cakes.  I’m no cake boss, but it’s something that I like to do.  During college, I worked nights in a bakery.  My duties were to get the production ready for the next day, however I was usually there by myself and had to learn to write on cakes for those that came in last minute and purchased one out of the ready made case.  Eventually the decorators began showing me other things and I found it was something that I enjoyed.

4. I love traveling and taking road trips with my family. As I mentioned earlier, we live in a very small community.  At times the greater population can be a little judgmental and narrow minded (two traits I have little tolerance for). So, it’s important to me that my children know there is a whole big world full of different cultures, religions, thoughts and beliefs.  Don’t get me wrong, I love where I live.  Small-town life definitely has it’s perks and our area is absolutely beautiful.  I’d love nothing more for my boys to take root and raise their own families here, but I also want them to experience the bigger picture.

   5. My husband and my paths weirdly crossed before we ever met.  Once upon a time in a small town in Kentucky, there was a brother and a sister who became doctors.  One went on to practice locally and delivered my husbands two brothers.  While the other somehow ended up in Texas and delivered me 🙂  Yep, before we ever knew each other, we had a connection.  We came about this bit of information after we were married and moved back to Kentucky, when the doctor in Texas passed away and my mom noticed that his obituary named a sister living in a neighboring Kentucky town of ours.  I asked my mother in law and she confirmed that the sister had delivered her two eldest sons.  I think it’s pretty neat.

6. I always cry at weddings, funerals and any time I hear The Star Spangled Banner.  I can’t help it, trust me, I try not to tear up and it never works.  It doesn’t matter who the people are or what type of event I’m at, a few tears will fall.  It’s kind of funny and amusing because I’m normally quite the opposite, especially at work, but those three things get me every time.

7.  I have a wide variety of taste in books and music.  I’ll read just about anything.  I love any variation of romance from the clean and sweet to the more dark and erotic tales.  I easily get lost in a good thriller and true crime stories and I very much enjoy memoirs.  My taste in music is the same.  My phone is cluttered with an array of styles and genres. One moment I may be listening to Hank Jr. or Keith Whitley and the next Eminem.  I was introduced to Olivia Newton John, The Oak Ridge Boys, Donna Fargo, and Elvis at an early age.  I listened to a lot of Alabama while in grade school until the big hair bands took off and then I went on a binge of Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, White Snake, and Poison.  Around middle school I was introduced to R&B and I am still a huge fan of Jodeci.  These days I listen to a lot of the newer country. Thomas Rhett, Tyler Farr, Brantley Gilbert, Colt Ford and Cole Swindell are all on my playlist.  Some of my other loves, Bruno Mars, Jeremih, Nickelback, Pink, Phil Collins, Rihanna, and Staind.  I’ll even venture off to southern rock, classical, and even some Celtic stuff on occasion.

That concludes my contribution to The One Lovely Blog Award. Below you’ll find some great folks that have contributed as well.  I hope you’ll take a look because they are some amazing and talented people.
