CAPTIVE’S KISS (Watcher’s Kiss #3) ** June 29, 2016 **

A Watcher’s Kiss Novella

 

(Previously published in the Gathering Darkness boxed set in fall 2015.)

It was only supposed to be one hookup. One hot night to ease the mating urge of his race’s fertile period.

But after scorching, up-against-the-wall sex in a darkened club, Tanner can’t get Saige out of his mind. And when he spots her the next day, in league with an enemy, he’s determined to uncover more about her than her delectable curves.

Saige knows Tanner is one of the good guys. And that’s why she can never see him again.

Her life has crumbled into a horrific turmoil, forced to aid criminals in kidnapping men for bloody arena fights. Held against her will, she has no hope of escape from her captors.

Determination rages through Tanner until he tracks Saige down. But rescuing her from her jailers’ sadistic whims means entering her underground hell. Posing as her victim and locked in a cell, he must find a way to save them both before he is pushed into a fight to the death.

Family. Sacrifice. Desire. Destiny.

Lethal, jaded, and efficient, four Watcher warriors encounter four sisters who walk straight out of a myth and into their hearts. The Solsti, supposedly legendary females who each control an element, are very much alive.

Quickly immersed in kidnappings, killings, and vengeance—not to mention soul-binding sex—each couple’s path brings them to locations and emotions far beyond anything they could have imagined. With their lives on the line, each sister learns to trust her ability as well as the male who has captured her heart.

Within each Watcher a fierce need is awakened: to protect what belongs to him. To protect the sexy mates they never anticipated they’d find and now cannot live without. The sisters complete their warriors’ battle-hardened lives in ways both unforeseen and completely perfect, and together they rain hellfire to annihilate their tenacious enemies.

Solsti and Watchers. Together they are invincible.

Four novels of danger and white hot passion complete the Solsti Prophecy series. Read on for a novella and EXCLUSIVE short story involving key characters who help bring the legend into vivid reality.

(from amazon.com)

Publication Date: January 13, 2015

The lost memories of a thief…
The first twelve years of Alina’s life are a black void. An accomplished thief, she uses her cloaking ability to pick pockets as well as stage elaborate heists. Digging deeper into her past sets off a chain of events that puts her, and the family she has just discovered, in the sights of their worst enemy.

…and the scarred heart of a guardian…
In secret, Lash Watcher Caine plots vengeance for the destruction of everything he loved. Branded by loss, he longs to find his one true mate, knowing that only with her will his heart fully heal. When his brief meeting with Alina is interrupted by her elaborate evade-and-escape plan, he knows there is more to her than meets his watchful eyes. But nothing can prepare him for the lethal power of her mind.

…collide at the fault line of destiny.
A brilliant villain with a vicious and loyal army behind her can only be stopped by one force: the combined power of four women who command the elements. Alina, with her newly-discovered affinity to the earth, becomes the linchpin to halting the desecration of their world. Thrown into a battle plan and a new family, she finds joy in in the quiet strength of Caine’s arms. But when the secrets to her past are revealed, she learns a terrible price has been paid in advance. The very magic that allowed her to live to fulfill a prophecy will forever deny her heart’s deepest wish.

On Wicked Ground is now available for pre-order!

 

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000026_00029]Please join us in congratulating Sharon Kay on her new release Wicked Flames, the 3rd book in the Solsti Prophecy series.  Sharon has stopped by VRB to let us pry for a little while by answering some questions. Not only that, but Sharon didn’t stop there, she is also offering 2 very lucky readers a chance to win their own copies of Wicked Flames! Be sure to enter the Rafflecopter giveaway at the end of the interview. Now, without further ado, I give you Sharon Kay.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi Sharon! Welcome to Vampire Romance Books, I am happy you could join us and answer some questions for the fans!  Hello! I’m excited to be here today!

Let us start with the personal stuff *rubs hands together* Why don’t you tell us a bit about yourself, like where are you from or how do you feel about Lima beans.  Haha, I’ll pass on the Lima beans! I will accept truckloads of Oreos and gallons of black coffee, though. I live near Chicago and I love it – love all the seasons, even winter. Well, especially winter, and I seem to be in the minority around here!

When you aren’t writing what do you enjoy doing?  I have a young son, and we are having a blast right now doing all kinds of outdoor stuff together. Summers are short here, so we pack a lot of activities into these couple months!

If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be, and why?  Oh, this is so tough! I just created a Pinterest board called “Places I need to go” and it has over 100 pins already! Ok, let me think…My ideal vacation involves a tropical beach, so I’d say anywhere in the Caribbean, maybe the Virgin Islands.

*Wicked grin* Most embarrassing moment, or would you like to take a pass on that? Just kidding, we’re not going to let you take a pass.  Haha! I am a complete dork so I have LOTS of embarrassing moments. Hmm…once when I was fourteen, my best friend and I tried to bake a frozen pizza in my parents’ oven, and we put it in upside down!

OK, I am getting serious now. What inspired you to write, and why the paranormal genre?  I LOVE paranormal romance. It’s almost all I read, so creating characters with special powers came fairly easily. Any—this may sound weird—but my characters inspired me to write their story. I didn’t plan to write a novel…the story kind of found me, and kept me writing.

Are your family and friends supportive of your writing, have they read your books? They are all supportive, for which I am grateful! About half have read my books. The rest aren’t huge fans of “things that can’t happen in real life” as they put it. (Translation: They prefer non-fiction.)  And that’s fine. Everyone has their preferences.

For our readers who aren’t familiar with the Solsti Prophecy books, would you give them a summary? The Solsti are four women who each control one of the elements: Air, water, fire, and earth. They grew up thinking they’re human who happen to have unusual powers, until one night two of them run into a demon warrior. Their true lineage is revealed, and also the fact that they exist to fight an enemy yet unseen, but more powerful than anything in all the realms. As each woman’s powers grow, they work closely with the demon males (cue sparks and sizzle)! Oh, and the three sisters had a fourth sister, who died when she was very young…yet the Elders state that all four Solsti exist. But who and where is she? *grins* The series will have four novels when it’s complete.

What gave you the idea for the series?  The idea formed in my head one weekend a few years ago, out of the blue, and I HAD to start writing Wicked Wind. I couldn’t sit still until I did.

I am madly in love with the Lash Demon Kai from Wicked Waves. I think he should have been mine *winks*. Do you have a favorite character? If so, who is it and what do you love about them?  Hmm, Kai appreciates the extra attention! But I can’t pick one favorite! I seriously want to go to Demon Central and hang out with all of them. Maybe pick up some MMA-style self-defense moves from Brooke and Nicole.

You have just released Wicked Flames. What is next for you, and can we have a hint?  Next up this fall is my first novella, called Kissed By A Demon Spy. It’s about Garnet, a minor character from Wicked Waves. Her page time in the novel was minimal, but her significance was HUGE, and I never had a chance to explain what happened to her. Oh, and in January, I’ll release the fourth Solsti book! (And reveal where she has been all this time!)

What advice would you give to aspiring writers?  Remember it’s a marathon, not a sprint. Investigate the publishing industry, both traditional and indie, so that you’re as informed as you can be when you decide which direction to go. And most importantly, JUST WRITE if you have an idea that won’t be quiet. Don’t stop to edit until you’re done with the rough draft – just get those words on paper!

What do you feel are the most effective ways of promoting yourself and your books?  I find that having 99 cent sales is an effective tool, since we all love a deal. Also, emails targeted to those who want news about paranormal romance are helpful.

It seems as though social media is essential for any author or other businesses for that matter. How do you feel about social media?  Yes, social media is essential and also fun, but can take up a lot of time if we aren’t careful (cough *Pinterest* cough)! But I LOVE being able to connect with readers. You know, hearing about everyone’s favorite books, book boyfriends, movies, junk food, the weather…anything goes!

Is there anything you would like to add or say to your fans?  Just that you guys are the best, and I appreciate whenever you take time to leave me a comment or a review! Without you, this series wouldn’t have continued past the first book, so XOXO!

Sharon, thank you so much for stopping by VRB and talking to us. I wish you the best of luck with the release of Wicked Flames, and I hope you will visit with us again.  It’s been fun, thank you for having me!

(from goodreads.com)
Gin Bonham lives with a dark secret. Born with an ability she never wanted, she builds her life around science and logic, running from the terror she is capable of causing. When sexy stranger Mathias spots her on a dance floor and cuts in, he leads Gin in a sensual rhythm that continues long after the music stops. But Mathias hides the fact that he knows exactly what she can do: in the deepest recesses of her mind lurks the power to manipulate fire. Destiny is coming for her and it doesn’t care if she’s ready or not.

Mathias possesses tracking and espionage skills so extraordinary that his fellow Lash demons call him The Hunter. Pursue and interrogate. He never fails. When he is tasked with coaxing Gin to work with the Lash demons against a common enemy, he relishes the challenge. But meeting her awakens a new, primal drive that pulls him toward her even as his tactics break her heart.

Failing to win Gin’s cooperation is not an option. But she is determined to flee, putting thousands of miles between her and any other supernatural creatures, including Mathias. Can she cool the charred embers of her emotions enough to forgive Mathias and embrace what she was meant to become? Or will her ability explode into something more than she can control?


Scorpio was an assassin; he had to be cold and calculated because had a job to do, and he had to finish it at any cost. After an assignment went wrong involving a mage and his mate a curse was laid on him by an old witch. The curse stated he would meet his fated one, and he would have an overwhelming need to claim her. He would need her like his next breath, but he would never have her. His mate would see him for the monster that he was, and he would forever be alone.
Scorpio is a character I absolutely fell in love with, I dare say out of all of Sharon Kay’s books (and I’ve read them all) he is my favorite to date. There are several reasons I fell for this character; the fact he is a strong sexy alpha male is a given. He touched my heart because he is misunderstood, he has a very dark past that no one except the Watchers who took him in are willing to look beyond, yet no one bothered learn why he did the work he did.  Secondly, I saw his story as one of honor and redemption. When he was taken by the coven of witches he had hurt during his time as an assassin, he owned up to his wrongs against them and worked to make amends. Even when he had the opportunity to leave he stayed true to his word.

Tessa is a witch who is gifted in metals and is Scorpio’s fated mate. Just like the old witch’s curse foretold she despises the man she sees as nothing more than a killer. Her coven has been through many hardships, and hers, it seems, are just beginning. The strong willed, and able bodied female is a perfect fit for the former assassin. No one can accuse Tessa of being a shrinking violet. She lives for her people, even if it means sacrificing her own freedom and happiness.
I felt like I waited forever on the latest Watcher’s Kiss novel! I find Sharon Kay’s novels so sexy and entertaining; once I pick one up I’m not laying it down until I read the last page! Assassin’s Kiss had me reeled in from page one with it’s drama, excitement, and passion. I certainly hope in future novels Kay gives us a glimpse of what is happening with Scorpio and Tessa, because these are two characters that are hard to let go of!

~~~~~~~~

(amazon.com)

*can be read as a stand alone story*

Warrior Scorpio finds himself alone on a botched op. No weapons, no communication devices, injured…and instantly recognized by a group of witches who want him dead.

Witch Tessa promises to marry a rival leader to save her people. But she never planned on the new prisoner in her coven. Scorpio, a rough, former mercenary makes the outrageous claim that she belongs to him.

Even from behind bars, the longer Scorpio stays, the more he unsettles Tessa and she questions all she thought she knew. Choosing him will put everyone she cares for at risk. He’s nothing like she expected, and the last thing she could dare to want.

I am a huge Sharon Kay fan. Her books are full of sexy alpha males, and steamy romance. Tanner and Saige’s story was no different. I loved their chemistry, and watching their relationship grow. Kay managed to pack a lot of passion and excitement in a few pages. My only complaint was that it was over far too soon! I really hope Tanner and Saige appear in future books.

slake their lust. When Tanner meets Saige he can’t get their night together out of his head, it just seemed his connection to her went a lot deeper than just a hook up during the mating season. Saige is involved in something dark and dangerous, and Tanner may have to risk himself to help her.

Captive’s Kiss  by Sharon Kay

 


Arawn is the fierce leader of the Lash demons. He is meticulous when it comes to planning for battle, and he looks out for his warriors. He has suffered great loss, and he has no room in his life for love. Ria is a seasoned warrior.  She is tough as well as beautiful. If she cares to admit it she has been attracted to Arawn for decades, but harbored secrets could get in the way of any chance she may have to soften the warrior’s heart.

Kudos Sharon Kay! I was a bit broken hearted after the ending of Kay’s Solsti Prophecy series. There was a house full of warriors I wanted to meet. As you can imagine I was jumping for joy when I learned of the Watcher’s Kiss Series, and the first book would feature the mysterious leader of the Lash demons.

Arawn was everything I expected and more. He is every bit of the driven warrior I knew he was, but I loved getting up close and personal. Ria is just incredible.  She is a fearless warrior, but she never loses her feminine side. Her strength makes her a great fit for the demon that has so much resting on his shoulders.

Tainted Kiss was such a fun read for me. It was fast paced with plenty of drama and action to keep me glued to the story.  If that isn’t enough for you Arawn and Ria burn up the pages! I always enjoy Kay’s writing. She is descriptive, but at the same time she keeps the story moving. Her characters are fascinating, and you can’t help but getting hooked on them.

It isn’t necessary to have read the Solsti Prophecy books before reading Tainted Kiss, but I highly recommend it to get the most out of the story. Fans of the first series will be in for a treat when they get reacquainted with some familiar faces. If that isn’t enough for you Arawn and Ria burn up the pages! Make sure you have free time when you sit down with this one, because you won’t want to lay it down.

~~~~~~

(amazon.com)

Tactical, lethal, resolute.

Haunted by a centuries-old tragedy, there’s no room in Arawn’s life for softness. Every action he takes is for the betterment of his race and the good of the realm. He leads his elite band of warriors the same way he lives his life: full on, without compromise, determined. Except for one sexy female who happens to be his subordinate.

 

Tenacious, passionate, tough-as-steel.

Ria relishes the duties Arawn assigns her as much as she respects the deadly combatants on her team. And she has a secret: her formidable boss is also her deepest fantasy. Years of working under his authority haven’t dulled the spark she feels, yet her passion is tempered by the hints of loss she gathers about him. His dark and sexy moodiness draws her, but he’s a hard man to approach as he keeps the world at emotional arm’s length.

 

Secrets laced in blood burn his battle-hardened soul.

When Ria is gravely injured in the line of duty, Arawn can no longer fight his own long-simmering feelings. But a secret, more heinous and ugly than anyone could imagine, prevents him from surrendering his heart. Despite his intentions, he and Ria forge a connection both fiery and unexpectedly tender. Yet every day brings them closer to shocking facts. Evil stirs in his blood, and hiding the truth from her will be the ultimate betrayal.
