Wicked After Dark Hop - Meet Isabella!!

Welcome to the Wicked After Dark Halloween Blog Hop!

*** Attention: Due to some fantastic responses, I will be adding a prize to my giveaway. Best comment on any post answering "What is the most wicked thing you've ever done?" will win a $10 Amazon Gift Card. 

If you already answered this, answer the question "What is the wildest Halloween memory you have?" Doesn't need to be PG :) This is in addition to the Rafflecopter below ***

This Halloween, my very first novella, Song of the Abyss,will be released in the anthology Once Upon A Twisted Time, brought to you by Moon Rose Publishing. I teamed up with the fantastic Miranda Stork, Tara S. Wood, and Trish Marie Dawson to bring you a collection of twisted fairy tales unlike anything you've ever read. Throughout this hop, I will bring you snippets featuring the heroines of each story. At the end of the hop, you'll have the chance to buy this spectacular anthology!!

Don't forget to go back to the last few posts on this blog where I introduced you to each of our alpha heroes!

Now without further ado, I would like you all to meet Isabella from Trish M Dawson's Hawke and the Beast!

This gorgeous rendering (as well as the cover) was designed by none other than the fantabulous Miranda Stork! 

So I bet you think you know the story of Beauty and the Beast, am I right? Well, you don't know this version :) This time around, our heroine is the one who transforms! And instead of changing into a single form, Isabella transforms into a different animal each month! Bet you can't wait to get your hands on this to find out how it plays out :) Don't forget to go back to the Alpha Heroes blog hop and read Jasper's snippet. It is HOT! 

She was out of her loose pajama bottoms before the two of them reached the bedroom door frame. Something fell with a crash to the floor as they bumped against the wall, arms wrapped greedily around each other, mouths tasting, fingers desperately exploring.
A deep sigh, very close to a growl, came from Isabella's lips as she tasted the sweet coffee on Jasper's agile tongue. She crushed her mouth to his so hard that she could feel the blood coursing below his taught skin. It was a steady whoosh-whoosh beat that rivaled her own, and it only turned her on further. With a rough tug, she freed him from his shirt, letting the warmed fabric fall to the carpet. It was just as she thought; every muscle of his slightly tanned upper body was tightly formed from chest to navel…conclave upon conclave rippled downward into a perfect V shape just above the top of his pants. With one finger, she ran a slow and seductive trail in a zig-zag pattern along the fine hairs between his nipples, slowly lowering her hand until her finger met the rough denim of his jeans. Using just her thumb and forefinger, she slipped the button loose.
Jasper groaned as she probed with first one, then two fingers into his boxer-briefs, lifting the waistband away from his skin as her hand slid deeper toward the ample bulge that strained at the tight fabric for release.
Suddenly, Jasper pulled his mouth from hers, and gently grasped her roaming hand, holding it tightly in his own against his abdomen. He took a shaky breath before speaking, "Wait…wait. I-I don't want you to do anything you don’t want to…" his voice wavered with lusty emotion.
The harlequin-green of Isabella's eyes flashed like spring and he saw not only youth in them, but hope. After a subtle push to his chest, Isabella slid against the wall, away from Jasper, until at least two feet were between them. The bedroom was at her back, so he could see the bed just behind her…almost beckoning, taunting him.
"Jasper," she said huskily, "I wouldn't be here if I didn't want you."

*fans face* Ok who needs some water? Or a sexy man? I'll take the latter ;)

Stop back tomorrow to meet another heroine! Now for the giveaway...

  4. When I was about 14, I called several people and told them they had won a trip to the Bahamas and they just had to call a phone number to confirm their win. I gave them my ex-boyfriend's phone number (he was such a jerk!). I heard his mom was livid. Ha!
