HAVEN, an Urban Fantasy Romance

In keeping with the romantic theme of our hop, here’s a romantic snippet from my novel HAVEN — Book 1 in The Tranquilli Bloodline Series — featuring Carina, a feisty San Francisco club owner, and her love-interest, undead musician Alexander.

Outside, the misty air cooled my lungs, the marble bench froze my ass, and the concrete under my bare feet chilled them bone deep. All cleared my head and eased the vertigo. “What time is it?”

Alexander draped his black leather coat over my shoulders. “Around four.”

He helped me snake my arms into the coat’s too-long-for-me sleeves, his hands pale like moonlight against the inky darkness of his coat. Such large, competent hands, the fingers long and strong. Piano player fingers. A silver band graced his left index, an onyx triquetra adorning the middle. He fished my hand from the sleeve. When our palms touched, power pulsed, warm and comforting.

My eyes strayed to the bracelets on his wrist. One thin strap of black leather and a chunky, metal bracelet of I-shaped links. I traced the metal with my free hand. “Silver?”

“Never.” He pointed at the rings. “White gold.” And the bracelet. “Titanium.”

“Oh.” My fingers continued their dance over his accessories. Love touching him.

Wind gusted around the clinic, whipping locks of hair across my face. He brushed them away, tucking some behind my ear. I pressed my cheek against his palm and closed my eyes to savor the moment. “Feeling better?”

I blinked and gave him a wry grin. “A lot better since you interrupted my undead uncles getting me drunk on brandy.”

His lips quirked, fangs flashing.

My insides quivered. “Yeah, much better.” My fingertips stroked his handsome face.

His skin showed no signs of the wounds he’d received during the earlier fight. Impressive. He leaned into my touch. My eyes zeroed in on his oh-so kissable lips. He moved closer, closer still, pausing a hair’s breadth away. My pulse skyrocketed. My stomach performed endless somersaults while bits lower clenched in anticipation. Do it. Do it now.

Alexander let out a breath and kissed me.

  1. Ice tea is the best while reading the favorite romance book on the beach! I can’t wait to read all the new book releases this summer!

  2. With 2 young kids, marketing one novel (soon to be two), part time job, writing for Yahoo, farm chores, cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc, I don’t get to read much. lol. Lately, It’s been the 20 or so minutes it takes to get the baby to sleep with the Kindle app on my phone and no beverage. Followed you on Twitter and liked your FB page. 🙂

    • Hi Angela, I hear you on the too busy to read. That’s why my TBR list is sooooo long, lol. I love my Kindle and sneak in small pockets of reading time, especially when playing Mom Chauffeur and waiting at after school activities.

  3. I tried to post my comment, but I don’t know if it went through. If this is a double sorry, but I just wanted to get at least one posted.

  4. Haven sounds really great definitely going on my TBR. I love iced vanilla coffee during the summer months. I am hoping to knock out several books on my enormous TBR.

  6. I’m part of a weight loss challenge through work that means I have to drink 64 ounces of water a day. If I drink anything other than water, I have a tough time getting in the required amount. Otherwise, I like tea or hot chocolate in winter and lemonade in summer.
