Nivian jumped over the edge of the bridge, landing with a soft tap on the surface of the water. She reached down, pulled the soul of the driver up by the collar of his shirt, and stood him up next to her on top of the water. She took the drivers hand palm up in hers, waving her other hand over his. She pinched the air and pulled, lifting up and exposing his life string, his wide eyes were hypnotized by the glowing string. She grabbed the scythe strapped to her back and swung. With a slow deliberate movement she sliced the human’s thread. The light formed a ball and hovered as she pulled out the small pocket watch. The life light floated down to the watch and sunk into it, disappearing. With a snap, she closed the watch and returned it to her pocket.
“You really shouldn’t drink and drive; you could have seriously hurt someone,” she said giving him an apathetic look. He gaped at her, mouth opening and closing like a fish. “Yes, you really are dead.” She confirmed as she started to turn away.
“Are you … the devil?” he managed to sputter.
“No, of course not. I am just the natural order of things,” she said, briefly looking back at him. “Wait here; your spirit counselor will be here soon for you to guide you to your afterlife. I have other jobs tonight,” She turned, walking away as she pulled her hood back up over her head and vanished.

About The Author

I am a retired military wife and homeschool mom. I have often joked that we started our second life when daughter graduated from school, and then less than a year later hubby retired from military. But the reality is, we did start a new life, because life as we had known it for so many years, went through a drastic change.
It was about four years ago that my daughter started urging me to write. "You have a great imagination for storytelling!" She insisted. I didn't think so, but decided to give it a try. We spent many hours sitting at our local Wendy's brainstorming the story line for my books. And while she insists I have such a great imagination, she is the one that truly has the gift for writing action scenes and has given me many fantastic ideas to incorporate in my books.
My writing has become a family affair. My husband runs my website; I would have never been able to set it up and have it running smoothly. My daughter helps me keep up with all of the social media, and is now my full time writing partner. It didn't take us very long to realize that we each specialized in different areas, and when put together, we rock! The fact that the family is involved in making my dream come true makes this journey fun. We can be found sitting around the table tossing around ideas for future stories, or how a story can be improved often.
When not writing, I love to read, and play games with the family. Friday night is family game night. I make homemade pizza and we play cards, board games, or WII tennis and bowling. I have broken at least ten WII tennis rackets from hitting the ceiling fan or furniture. I've even come close to hitting my own daughter! She doesn't think it is very amusing, but still loves to sit on the couch and watch mom and dad at war.

~Blog Tour~ Hooked by Ana Layne

Posted by BookGroupies 1 comments
HTML Editor - Full Version

Lance Borel is a man who knows what he wants…
He wants to fight.
Since his mother became ill, fighting and being in the ring is the only thing that gives him peace of mind.
The one thing he feels like he can control in life.

Hilary Vaughan is the kind of girl who isn’t sure what she wants… 
Because she’s never had to want for anything. Coming from a rich family, all her wants and needs are quickly fulfilled.
Now she’s just looking for fun in the most typical place. 

But one night everything changes…
Lance and Hilary meet in a bar, but before things heat up, she blurts out she’s a virgin. Taken by surprise he walks away, but he can’t seem to get her off his mind.
A few weeks pass when they meet again, and for the first time in his life he believes he’s finally found something else worth fighting for.

Only now she's with Travis...and he's bad news.

If not reviewing PLEASE DELETE THIS PART !!

I’m not the best guy in the world, matter of fact, I’m the guy your mother will warn you to stay away from in the bar because I only want one thing.
 And I usually get it.
 Things at Joe’s are looking just like they should tonight. The drinks are coming, the music is bumping and the hotties are here, damn it’s going to be a good night. I shouldn’t be here tonight or well any other night but it’s the only way I know to deal and be able to keep my head on straight.
Mom is dying. Unfortunately, Dad and I know this. It’s why I fight. I fight to help pay her medical bills and make sure the house is taken care of. Dad shouldn’t have to carry that weight alone and I refuse to let him. Mom got diagnosed with lung cancer a few years ago and she was a strong fighter from the beginning. The cancer went into remission but its come back progressing with a deadly vengeance. She’s steadily going downhill. She’s refusing to go to the doctor which pisses Dad and I off but we don’t let her see that at all. We don’t force her to go either which is probably wrong on our part but I just don’t want to make anything harder on her than it already is. I can’t imagine my life without Mom in it but here soon I’m afraid I’ll know what it’s like and I’m going to hate it.
Garrett buys a round of shots passing them out to us giving a toast to Raegan. “I’d like to give a toast to my sexy stubborn ass girlfriend. She’s one badass woman and I love her so fucking much.”
Before I throw my shot back I shoot her a grin, “I fucking love her too!” She rolls her eyes at me laughing. If there’s one thing I’m happy about it’s that Garrett found Raegan. They are perfect together even though they are aggravating as hell sometimes.
As much as I want to hang around these two tonight, I can’t help but scan the crowd. My eyes look between a blonde with a pixie style haircut and a brunette who is practically coming out of her shirt standing by the bar. Come to daddy. One quick nod to Raegan and Garrett is all it takes, they know exactly what I am up to and just like that, I stroll over towards the brunette at the bar.
I watch her intently. She notices me and her eyes widen as her cheeks turn a shade of blush. She’s gorgeous. Her hair cascades over her shoulders, the ends meeting where her cleavage begins. I lick my lips as I inch closer to my prey, she knows what’s coming, it’s written all over my face.

Raegan Montgomery's life changed in an instant…
One minute you think you know someone and the next minute they’re a stranger. When Raegan was forced to make a decision, she ended up alone. All. Alone. 

One step inside a gym was all it took. 
The ring became her escape. She was more determined than ever to move on and forget her old life. That was, until she saw those blue eyes.

Garrett Johnson wants nothing more than to spend his time training and dominating in the ring...
It's what he's good at. 
It's what he does. 
He has no time, or desire, to be entangled in a relationship. But after one look at Raegan, his whole world shifted. He needs her, he needs to know her, only its not so easy. This may be a fight he can’t win. 

Will he be able to win Raegan over? Or will it end in a total knock out?

Ruston McGregor is Tamilyn Hudson’s best kept dirty secret… 
Being best friends since birth, they did everything together and their bond was strong. Nothing could keep them apart, until Ruston’s cousin Austin moved to town. 

Austin Moran is the bad boy every girl dreams about, but he’s not one to settle down…
He moves to Houston to start a new phase of his life, hoping the move will be the fresh start he needs to help keep him on the straight and narrow. Deciding to join Lou’s Gym, he figures fighting legally will keep him out of trouble. With persuasion, he convinces Ruston to join him. 

Ruston can have any girl he wants…
But when the one he wants begins to cozy up to his cousin, it tears him apart. He’s waited so long to tell her, and now it’s too late…or is it?
One drunken night he finds he can’t hold back his feelings any longer. So he lays it all out on the line, and finally, he gets what he wants. However, when Tamilyn still insists on being with Austin, he becomes more determined than ever.
But attraction is like a drug.
They can’t stop their hidden passion for one another, and when secrets are revealed, the outcome changes both of their lives forever…

One. Final. BLOW.

Mercy~ A Dark Erotica:
Sade looked up to find he’d laid Mercy on the floor and held a chair out for him to sit in.
“Oh, she’s fine. I didn’t hurt her. Just some chloroform.” He glanced down then back at Sade. “I think I used too much, she’s been out for so long. Such a delicate flower. Unlike your little friend. I had to use quite a bit, and boy, did he put up a valiant fight.”
“Bo is a fighter.” Panic surged through Sade as he slowly approached the man standing behind the chair. “I hope you taught him a lesson.”
He let out an eager laugh that made Sade sick. “Let’s just say, he’s being trained in becoming a fisherman.”
“A fisherman?” Sade chuckled, sitting. “That dumb shit never fished once in his life.”
“Oh, well, he’s not really fishing.” His humored tone said he was either buying Sade’s game or playing another one far better. He was too sincere to tell. “He’s my little naughty Jonah. I’ll deal with him later, but for now…” Standing at Sade’s shoulder now, he drew a finger along the back of his neck. “…I’ll focus on you.”
“And Kane?” Sade clenched his eyes at the sensual glide of those fingers on his skin still. “He’s made my life very hard over the years.”
“You like the ink I see.”
The idea he was tracing his tattoo made him feel only a little better. “I like the pain.” Sade fought a shudder from his continued caress, gliding along the column of his neck.
The smell of sour sweat thickened the air as his breaths turned shallow. “You like pain.” His eager whisper trembled like he either hated that or loved it more than Sade wanted him to.
But whatever would keep Mercy safe. “Very much.”
The man’s fingers roamed up into Sade’s hair now, the act of a lover. “Did you know,” he whispered, curious. “That there is neither male… nor female… in the body of Christ?”
Sade grit his teeth as Abraham stroked over his lips. “I didn’t know.”
The large fingers left his mouth and moved to roam over his skull. “An innocent lamb you are. Once I cleanse you and purify your vessel, I think you will make a fine disciple. Would you like that?” He closed his hand over Sade’s throat. “Go on,” he whispered, his mouth at his ear now. “Tell me.”
A trickle of sweat rolled down Sade’s face. He knew there was only one right answer to give the predator shifting on restless feet as he assessed his prey. “I would love that, Father.”
“I see your body has been pierced.” He stroked his hand eagerly over Sade’s chest. “That is a grave sin, my son.”
The eager words said that was a turn on in some sick way. “I’m dirty, Father.” Sade barely managed to resist the full body shudder rolling through him.
“Indeed.” He slid a finger over his nipple. “I’ll inspect your body later. After the ceremony. I have many tools to heal you and seal all your wounds.”
Sade’s cock jerked at the idea of sexual pain just as he leaned to his ear again. An elbow to the face nearly overcame Sade in that second.
“This will be your first test as my disciple. A Master must be able to… trust his servant.” The sour breath brushed Sade’s cheek. “Don’t disappoint me, son. Please.”
Abraham’s beg held an orgasmic tone, shooting more sadistic desires through him—eye-gouging being the strongest and immediate. “I promise, Father.” He kept his voice to a whisper, not trusting it. His heart hammered furiously with the effort to appear calm as the man finally walked away, his steps hurried. “I’ll only be five minutes.”
Oh shit! She looked around then hurried into the closet, falling into the back wall as she managed to shut one side of the closet. Oh God, were they both shut? She was so busted. What was she doing in there? She was… looking for… shoes? Extra pair of Crocs? And then panicked when he came in because… well she realized she should have asked.
She held her breath at seeing him sit on the bed, his back facing her. He laid down and she jerked more into the closet when his head was in her line of vision. If he looked, he’d see her. She clenched her eyes shut, hoping the sudden movement hadn’t made a noise.
Letting out a slow breath, she listened as he went to the bathroom. Oh God this was her chance, she could leave. The door opened and she glued herself back to the wall, one of her crutches clonking lightly on something. Oh God. The main light turned off, leaving only the bathroom one to shine into the room. She peeked through the slats as he sat on the bed again. She let out a careful breath wishing he’d go see Bo.
Oh shit. What if he tried to go see her?
He laid down, and her breath caught at seeing his naked chest. She let her breath go when he put a hand behind his head and draped his other across his midsection. She watched the rise and fall of his chest, her eyes catching the glow of white skin between the dark ink of his tattoos. Shit. How long would he take to fall asleep? She looked around in the closet, careful only to move her head. It was too dark to see anything even if there was something.
She jerked back to watching him at hearing him sigh. He seemed to be looking down at something. She lowered her body and angled her head and see. Oh my God. He was naked. His hand was on his cock, stroking slowly. Her heart slammed her chest as she gradually leaned right so that she could look out the bi-fold door that was partially open. Oh. My. God.
His chest and stomach moved with his gasps. He pulled his knees up and Mercy’s breath hitched in her chest when he let them fall open. Holy…. His enormous size sent heat biting her lower stomach and between her legs. She watched his muscles flex in his arms as he gripped himself and moved his hips in and out of his hold.
His head went back with a groan and her eyes locked on his open mouth and neck muscles standing out. Oh God, oh God. Her privates throbbed as she watched him in silent ecstasy.
“Fuck, yes,” he gasped, looking down at himself again. His hand moved quickly over himself, making the bed shake. Again his mouth opened wide, with a harsh hiss. She froze as his head turned toward her, then away in ecstasy. “Mercy,” he whispered, shooting panic through her. “Suck my cock,” he croaked. “Suck it, baby.” Her own mouth hung open in shock. He was talking to himself. Mercy’s privates were on fire as the bed shook more with his vigorous strokes. He looked down again, rolling his hips slowly then bucking fast. His head shot back, this time with teeth bared before his mouth flew open in a half roar.
Oh my God, oh my God. The sound and sight of his orgasm rocked her unlike anything she’d ever felt. She was officially addicted to it.
Her heart pounded so furiously in her body, she was sure he’d hear it as he gasped for air in the aftermath.
He slowly sat up, his body still heaving, back facing her. He stood and went to the bathroom. She watched his gorgeous body as he walked with a sleek grace, aching to touch him. What would he feel like under her fingers? Was he soft? Hard? Both? What would he feel like on her lips? She closed her eyes, never wanting something so much. She wanted to know. She had to know. Not remember, know.

Author Bio
I’m a husband, author, and Christian who loves writing tales—paranormal erotic romance, contemporary erotic romance, fantasy romance and dark erotica-- about men who honor, cherish, and protect the women they love. Also stories that are real enough to form a sort of how-to bridge for the readers, teaching them "how to" add heat and passion to their marriages and relationships; teach them how to build life-long commitments--like I have with my own beautiful wife--and build strong families; all of which serve as a healthy foundation in society.
I think there are many men like myself, and I hope my writing will be a map for them. A map for women as well, to teach them how to bring out the strength that exists within the men they call boyfriend or husband. Teach them how to dance out their fairytale romance in a world that isn't kind to the happily ever afters we all hope to achieve.
You know, when I was younger, I submitted to my inner reckless and tireless desires, but when I gave myself to God and conformed my will to His, the transformation made me into what I am today. A man that believes and endorses Forever Love. Something we could stand a lot more of in our times, don't you think?
