NOBODY'S ANGEL Is 1 Day Old! Let's Celebrate With An Excerpt!

Woo, the first book in The Earth Angels series, NOBODY’S ANGEL, is one day old today!  Oh, they do grow so fast, don’t they? *wipes proud tear*  To celebrate this momentous occasion, I’m posting an excerpt—enjoy!

He shrugged, a movement she could feel far more than see. “A geist doesn’t have the mental capacity to focus on one person unless it’s emotionally bound to them, like a relative. Or a lover.” He caught her chin and tilted it up as if to receive a kiss, and her lips parted in a response she couldn’t help. “Has anyone in your life died recently?”

“Yes.” Her heart didn’t seem to know whether to stop or start, so in the end it fluttered uselessly. “Dave Beamer.”

“This particular geist possessed Beamer and killed him, just like it possessed that man here at Fisherman’s Wharf and made him pull off that murder-suicide which mirrored the KPOW attack.”

Her mind spun in an effort to grasp what he was saying. “Are you sure it’s the same…um…geist?”

“There’s only one geist in this city now, and this one’s unmistakable. As soon as I can corner it, I’ll pass it on to the next life as easily as I passed on your friend Beamer.”

She couldn’t help it. Her jaw unhinged. “Wow, you can do that?”

He waved this away. “The geist we’re dealing with now is so old, its death would have occurred awhile ago. Months, maybe even years ago. Are you sure you can’t think of anyone close to you who passed away?”

“No. There’s no one.”

“Then its obsession with you is a mystery I don’t have time to solve. I have to get this geist crossed over before it kills you, or before…”

She waited a beat. “Before what?”

Before he could answer, a flashlight beam bounced in their direction. As if he was part of the night itself, he moved to shield her from it with his black-cloaked frame. The press of his length was as hard as the wall at her back, and without warning Kendall imagined she could feel every muscle-padded contour and raw-edged bone in his body. A spurt of something like alarm sizzled through her when it occurred to her just how big this man was. The shroud of night had managed to hide his linebacker frame, but there was no way to overlook how her breasts flattened against the lower part of his rib cage, nor could it mask the sudden awareness of his hips and lower region now plastered against her stomach. Could he feel the scorching heat their bodies generated, or was that just her overstimulated imagination? Her thoughts whirled off in a thousand different directions, each one on a path that was completely inappropriate for their circumstances. Like how it would be to try to fit her smaller stature into his embrace. Or if she would have to stand on her tiptoes to reach his mouth with her own. Or whether or not it would be more exciting for him to leave his mask on or take it off if he took her to his bed.

An appalled breath hissed out of Kendall, and she shifted furtively away from the intoxicating press of his body. Her motor sure was running hot lately, she chastised herself, shocked by her lusty thoughts. First Zeke got her all steamed up with his bedroom eyes and hands made for caressing a woman’s body, and now she was revved-up for the so-called Guardian Angel. Since when had she pulled on her any-man-will-do hot pants? It had to be the danger, she decided, trying to ignore the fever flushing her body. Danger was an aphrodisiac, but as of now, she was immune. The one thing she had to focus on was making sure she stayed out of the hands of the geist, and not pushing herself into the hands of a man who had a mask fetish.

  1. Okay a) I'm super awed by the fact that you are currently living out both of your life-long dreams. *I bow to you*. b) I think I'm right in thinking you were once an HPANA-er, too? At the very least I know your name quite well from posts by Tami. Finally restarted a blog of my own and am thus now FINALLY getting to follow all of these awesome authors she's always talking about/blogging about. c) I love the premise of Nobody's Angel and will definitely have to check it out ASAP. Congrats on its release! :]

    1. WOOHOO, HPANA forever!!! Are you Kassy? I remember you! *waves wildly from Texas* I swear, HPANA was just about one of the best things that ever happened to me, since it introduced me to so many amazing people. I'm just sorry it's no longer there. :(

      Yay for restarting your blog! What's your focus? Are you a writer too? And wow, am I nosy or what? :D Hope you don't mind all the questions, but I have deep and crazy love for anyone who's connected to HPANA. <3

      And thanks so much for the good wishes on NOBODY'S ANGEL! I'm so excited to get this series going I can hardly sleep at night! Crazy, huh? :P

  2. I AM Kassy. I always posted on HPANA as Kas, so many of my writing friends know me as that, and in real life it's one of those nicknames only my closest friends tend to use by their own accord so I decided if I get to be whoever I want in the blog-o-sphere, I shall be Kas. ; ]

    My focus for now IS writing... I'm a writer, but I consider myself more of a wannabe-writer at the moment. I have still yet to FINISH anything original. That's my goal for this year... complete one of my WIPs.

    I share the deep and crazy love for all HPANA-ers. And I can only imagine your excitement! Congrats again!!
