‘Today, I found out the difference between a Jelvia and a human.’ #novelines #erotic #fiction #supernatural #spanking #nsfw #LPRTG #SSRTG #EARTG


‘Today, I found out the difference between a Jelvia and a human.’

Macy Shaw is a Human—at odds with the world since her mother was murdered and burns with injustice at the world she sees around her. She’s a celebrity journalist and is tired of listening to shallow stories of the rich and famous. She wants a juicier story.

Narcifer is a Jelvia—a venomous warrior whose species see themselves as a slayer of Human criminals, but those Human criminals receive no jury or court case. They are just killed. Narcifer only knows that if he doesn’t kill criminals, he’ll kill innocents. The killing is a need. A want.

While the rest of the world sees the Jelvias as dangerous and in need of controlling, Macy sees them as heroes and decides to try and interview one for an article she wants to write.

She meets Narcifer.

Unfortunately, her boss and Narcifer’s boss have history.

And in a world which is against them, these star-crossed lovers find themselves unsure on who to trust.

Contains mature themes.


Jeliva: Not Human #1
HOLDING OUT FOR A HERO
Excerpt from chapter one 

Macy stared at the unmoving, crouching shadow on the roof, and felt it stare back at her. The moonlight caught its reflective eyes and the gaze pierced right through her. The Jelvia rose until he was standing. The wind tugged at his coat, making him appear even more outlandish.
He turned, superhumanly fast, and jumped from the roof of the shop to land on the roof of the next building. He made no sound. And then he was gone from sight. Macy was freaked out. It was dark, her friend had been attacked, and someone had died. She scrambled inside her car. She closed the door and dug in her pocket for the keys, but her car shuddered, and Macy’s head snapped up in alarm. The Jelvia was standing in front of her car, hands on the bonnet as if to prevent it from moving. He leaned in to peer through the windscreen.
Macy began another frantic search of her pockets for the car keys as he took one hand off the bonnet and beckoned her out of her car.
Macy shook her head.
The Jelvia cocked his head at her as if regarding her. The black eyes, already shadowed by the night, appeared to be empty black orbs in the Jelvia’s skull.
He dangled her car keys in front of her.
Macy stared into eyes that were nothing but complete darkness and felt a shiver trickle down her spine. She’d never been this close to a Jelvia before and could finally appreciate the words of those who encountered them: It wasn’t only their eyes that were black, their whole being was as well.
As she looked into those eyes, it really did feel as if his soul was enveloped in darkness. She waited for the feeling of intense terror that people were said to feel, but none came. Logic told her his venom could pierce through the windscreen and kill her where she sat, and she should be scared, yet scared wasn’t an adjective she could use.
She felt… electrified.
Maybe it was fear playing with her senses.
The Jelvia was big and wore the typical Jelvian dress of a knee-length, bulletproof, black coat. Given his size, he didn’t look like he should be able to move as quickly as he had done on the shop roof. But she knew from her research of the Jelvian species that they were incredibly light on their feet, had amazingly sharp reflexes and coordination. They were superhuman.
He continued to dangle the keys from his fingers, and Macy opened the door and exited slowly. She stood before him with her hand outstretched to receive the car keys she must have dropped rushing after the man walking the dog.
‘Please, can I…?’ she asked.
The Jelvia stepped towards her. As he moved, his face came out of the shadow, and she was able to see him clearly. She was transfixed not only by his beauty, but because she’d seen that face so many times in the newspaper recently, due to her own research of Mardle and Becks murders, and she was sure that this was the Jelvia who had killed both men.
The police van behind her started up, and the Jelvia looked over her head towards the vehicle. Macy turned to watch as it moved off in the opposite direction. When she looked back, his eyes were on her, and his gaze was all-consuming as if he were drinking her in.
Everything had happened in an instant, and she still had her hand out for the keys. He placed them in her upturned hand gently and closed her fingers around them. His big hand lingered over hers.
The instant he touched her, her nerves became electrified, and the way he became still told her he’d felt the sensation as well.
Macy wanted nothing more than to step into those big arms. Her brain was yelling caution, but everything else was submitting to this man—this Jelvia.
She looked down at their hands. He had begun to trace an imaginary circle at the base of her wrist with his thumb, and the touch sent tingles through her body.
Then he leaned in until his breath stroked her face. Macy held her breath, certain he was about to kiss her.
And certain that she wanted him to.
A large hand cupped her cheek, and she opened her eyes, embarrassed that she’d had them closed. She stared up at him, then his other hand rose until her face was held in his hands.
He frowned, and she could see in his expression that she’d surprised him. Most humans would have been terrified.
His eyes dropped to her mouth. His face was so close she could see the pupils in his all-black eyes. Then he lowered further and touched his lips against hers—and all embarrassment vanished. The taste of his lips was more than she had bargained for and, beyond her comprehension, her body melded to his with a sigh.
As if under a spell, Macy raised her hands to hold his in place around her face, and parted her lips. She could hear the sound of her own shallow breath, could hear his as he plundered her mouth.
His hands left her face, and one cupped the back of her head, while the other pulled her closer still. She felt his hard body against hers, felt his arousal and wanted to touch it. His hot mouth moved over hers; his tongue thrust inside her mouth, and she knew, now that she’d had a taste of him, she’d never have enough.
Macy’s fingers twined in his hair. Desire licked through her, ripening her body.
She felt the cold exterior of her car behind her as she was shoved up against it. A hand pressed against her breast and her nipples hardened against his touch. She was beginning to think that he was going to take her there and then, and was almost certain that she wanted him to.
Her hand moved down his body, towards the erection pressing at the fabric of his trousers. It filled her hand.
He stepped away from her. She was breathing rapidly, stupefied as she looked up at him.
His hand reached out, and his fingers trailed a hot path down her throat. The hand splayed, the smallest finger disappearing into the neck of her tee-shirt, touching the swell of her breast. She felt herself pressing into his hand, but he didn’t move further, and then she realised he was feeling the vibration of her erratic heartbeat.
Feeling his gaze on her, she raised her eyes. He took his hand away, then he did something she’d not expected him to do. He grinned. A cock-sure grin, complete with dimples.
Macy found herself grinning back.
Then he bent and opened her car door. And reluctantly, she slipped inside, and he closed the door on her. Only when she was safely inside did the Jelvia turn and walk away.

What is your perfect man wasn't human?

Jelvias have lived alongside humans since time began—or that’s what mankind once thought. Now they are waking up to the invisible technology that had fogged their brains.

Beasts. Devil spawn. Aliens. Venomous… are the words used to describe Jelvias. They execute criminals and judge beyond redemption.

Macy Shaw wants to prove there's more to Jelvias than violent murderers but no one will listen to a small-time celebrity reporter such as her—then she catches the eye of her boss and he gives her the job of a lifetime:

Narcifer, the Jelvian Lothario, woo him, seduce him, get a story.

Macy will do anything to get that story...even if it risks losing her life.

She didn't bank on losing her heart.

Book by T. E Kessler contain adult material and therefore recommended for the over 18 age group only.

Wide Awake Asleep is on a book tour!


Wide Awake Asleep
on tour! 



I've never used resources like Rachel's Random Resources before (it's usually me on WWBB as the host!), so I'm looking forward to having Wide Awake Asleep pampered and shared around like a bag of Jelly Babies! (Unless they are my Jelly Babies, and then they'd NEVER be shared!)

So, from November 8th I hope to be splayed (the book, not me!) on many book blogger sites, where I will reveal various excerpts from the book, interviews and -- gulp -- a few book reviews where I've gifted copies of Wide Awake Asleep. 


*
Wide Awake Asleep
(a time travel, paranormal adventure).

Can you really be on the WRONG path in life?

No one knew she was driving on that stretch of road. No one saw her car leave the highway and crash into a watery ditch. No one heard the car’s windscreen smash or saw the tree branch come through to impale her to her seat. No one heard her screams.
Julie Compton’s life should have come to an end that day, but instead, that moment was the beginning of her new life as she wakes, unharmed, back in 1972 and primed to relive her traumatic childhood all over again.
One flaw. She’s in the body of a stranger.
Journey back to the 70s and 80s England where Julie is forced to jump through the eras, occupying and controlling other people’s bodies she knew as a child. She must work out which destiny path was the wrong one all while wondering if her body, back in 2016, was dying in her car.
With each momentous change, her memories transform and she realises she’s not only changing her future but of those around her. She’s finally ‘living’ but does that mean she must die?

A sci-fi Beauty and the Beast! #scifi #beautyandthebeast #alienromance


Imprisoned for brutal crimes against his wardens, Fly was taken from his planet Itor and transported to an uninhabited world alongside other criminals. Full of mutiny, anger and a desire for revenge the transportation was never going to be successful and Fly became the only survivor when the craft crashed.

Then the human ship arrived - and Jenny.

With a malfunctioning spacecraft she was in for a fight for her life, but her problems were only just beginning when her crewmates abandon her on Eden.

Jenny's on her own... or so she thinks.


#2


‘I’m scared’, Fly had said. He was never scared. He was her hero. Her rugged hero made up from all the romance books she’d read. Big, bold and beautiful—in an alien kind of way.
Jenny's from Earth. Fly's from Itor. By a quirk of fate they met. She tamed him and they fell in love. They live idyllic lives in a protected corner of the world away from the wolf-like people and savage tribes of Neanderthals, and when Jenny discovers she’s pregnant they feel things can’t get any more perfect.

But things are changing outside their little kingdom. The wolf-people are disbanding and someone, or something, appears to be hunting the Neanderthals. Fly makes provisions to protect all that’s dear to him, but then he just doesn’t return home. Jenny knows he’s alive somewhere, but alone with her baby daughter, is she equipped to deal with the new horror that awaits her?

This sequel will have you turning the pages wondering if happy ever afters are possible in this conclusion to Eden.

Trashy novel alert! Last chance to buy for 99cents on Amazon #romcom #chicklit #lol #99c #wwbb

What do the words 'trashy novel' mean to you?

I've always thought the answer was gratuitous sex scenes amongst shallow characters, but others have told me it's an insignificant plot.

I Googled the answer and (palpitations!) it brought up chick lit. Chick lit! Surely not! Other answers are a formulaic book written for scandal or simply a badly-written book. It seems no one really knows the true answer. Maybe it's an easy-reading book that you've enjoyed?

When I brought up this question with a group of writers, a gentleman answered: ‘Any book written by a female.’

Yeah, I know, idiot.

So the question is still out there—what constitutes a trashy novel?

Meanwhile, my own trashy, chick lit novel (with no gratuitous sex scenes or insignificant plot) is only 99c to buy all through March.

Feel free to check it out:
  
A Proper Charlie

 What’s a girl to do when she discovers her boss is a wanted man?

Amazon

She's losing her job.
She's losing her boyfriend.
She can only afford to eat spaghetti hoops on toast.
She's called Charlie... Charlotte, ginger, ginge, Duracell or carrot.
Yet with all these odds against her, she pushes forward to take the lead story on her paper at London Core.

Too bad no one knows.

Too bad she's the office general assistant and not a real journalist. Too bad it's on missing prostitutes and Charlie thinks pretending to be a 'tart with a heart' will get her that story. 

She doesn't just get a story. 


She becomes the starring role!


 Unashamedly trashy!

Then she hears of a possible Jack the Ripper style story, which has London in its gruesome grip. Bodies aren’t showing up even though prostitutes are going missing at a rate of one a month, and the police are stumped.

Without telling anyone, Charlie dons her best fishnet stockings and hits the streets pretending to be a prostitute in the aid of securing a story to further her career.

Then Ben lets her into his secret, and she not only becomes part of the ‘Jack the Ripper’ story, she finds herself the starring role!

Romcom at its craziest, funniest and British-iest.

Where were all the characters before you became a writer?

Life before characters


Life, ‘as we know it’, before I became a writer was a dark, messed up place. Weird people came to me in my head with lives that demanded to live. They’d talk to me about wanting to be ‘set free’ and I had no clue as to who they were or why they were in my mind.

My imaginary friends drove my mum to despair!

I tried to lead a normal life as I grew up: school, college, work, marriage, kids, work. But then I discovered I could write about these weird people and give them the life they craved.

My first shot at it was awful. OMG awful, in fact. I think it even began ‘It was a dark, stormy night’ to give you an idea of how awful it was. That book won't ever see the light of day! Thank God, I say.

There was another weird person in my head who used to come to me in dreams. He was scary, sexy, dangerous and an enigma until I got to know him. The first night I dreamed about him I woke up with the cliché pounding heart and a sweaty bod. But in the next dream he apologised for being an ugly mother effer, and after that I think I fell in love with him a little.

He became my superman in my thoughts. When my weird people got themselves into scraps he saved them—or tried to. He wasn’t infallible and made mistakes, but I loved him more for his errors. He became Fly and I put him in my first published book called Eden.

My biggest mistake was making him more palatable to look at. In my thoughts his face is scarred—part of his mouth his missing—and his hands are distorted through scar tissue. But readers weren’t able to see through his ugliness and told me so in reviews, so when I wrote the follow up, Hunted, I went back and rewrote Fly in Eden to be more agreeable to look at.

He mocks me for that.

My books have an element of romance, but the overall storyline is loneliness. All my weird people are lonely and want (or need) to be loved. I do my best to please them.

Eden and Hunted are a soft science fiction, A Proper Charlie and Oh No, I’ve Fallen in Love! are comedy romances, although Oh No, I’ve Fallen in Love! is a lot darker than most romcoms.

What I read for pleasure is what I like to write: bad verses evil, love conquers all… you know, the usual.

In my latest book, Wide Awake Asleep, it has the theme 'riches verses happiness' and my character needs to choose which she wants when she is repeatedly pinged back in time. Each time she goes back her future, and those around her, changes.

I was inspired to write Wide Awake Asleep by the Life on Mars series with Sam Tyler being sent back to the 70s, although Wide Awake Asleep isn't a crime story or a series, and only my character, Julie, consciousness is sent backwards through time for her to appear inside other people's bodies, it has a similar theme of Julie trying to get back to her present time by correcting her past.

Basically, it's  a time travel novel with twists and turns along the way, and set in the small village of Potterspury (outskirts of Northampton in the Midlands). It's truly British!

Like an #alphamale? Check out Eden and its sequel Hunted in this #scifi romance



Imagine yourself stranded. No way of communicating, no shelter. No food. Now imagine that place is another planet. Then you realise you're not alone...

Astronaut Jenny found herself abandoned on Eden after a miscommunication failure with her crew. From 2056 where technology ruled and hard work was left to robots, she was forced to go back to basics and live a pre-historic life.

Unfortunately, a lone alien had crash-landed previously and was already living such a life.

Bad news for Jenny. Good news for him.

Eden begs the simple question:
How far would you go to survive? 

 

Author note:

Eden can be read as a stand alone novel, however, Hunted follows on from Eden so needs to be read after Eden.

Like paranormal, time travelling romance? Wide Awake Asleep ticks all those boxes!


Wide Awake Asleep

available on pre-order!


‘Past events can be changed but one must be careful of how one does it because it’ll impact on the rest of one’s life.’—Dáire Quin, Modify your Destiny if you Must, 2003

No one saw Julie’s car leave the road, no one saw her crash into the watery ditch, no one saw the gnarled tree branch pierce through the window screen and impale her to her seat.
No one heard her screams.
Yet, this was the beginning of Julie’s life.

Julie Compton, is a forty-something woman, striving for success in a male dominated business world. She thinks she’s made it. She thinks she has it all. Trouble is, her destiny has been travelling in the wrong direction and Julie is now forced to relive her life by occupying people’s bodies from her past in a time-travel, paranormal adventure.


For readers who enjoyed books like 'The Time Traveler's Wife' and 'The Lovely Bones'.


  Excerpt from WIDE AWAKE ASLEEP – a paranormal, time travel romance.
 Disorientated, I looked around at my surroundings. I had the strange feeling that I wasn’t here at all. I thought I heard a voice, and I cocked my head, but it was carried away on a gust of wind. The feeling of hands touching my body subsided and I was left in this paradox universe where I was me inside someone else’s body.
I looked down at myself and the first thing I saw was a plaid skirt, and thick tights, which sagged at the knees and ankles.
My heart began to beat in horror. No, no. Please, God, no.
My hands touched the stained cardigan over my large droopy breasts. Up further to my face…
My hands recoiled.
I felt a moustache!
I gasped in horror. I was ‘Auntie’ Iris Grimshaw!
It was bad enough being goofy Sarah Marshall, but now I had a moustache! And a bloody monobrow!
Iris began to walk, and I felt a sharp pain in my hip. I slowed, but the pain persisted. It shot down my left leg every time my foot touched the ground. No wonder the old sod was grouchy.

If you liked The Butterfly Effect and the time travel series Life on Mars...


Wide Awake Asleep - coming Christmas 2016
Village girl Julie Compton couldn’t wait to leave Potterspury, her mum, boyfriend and best friend when they turned against her and turned her cossetted life upside down and inside out.
Unable to forgive then, she left for London and threw herself into making a name for herself in the perfume industry.
Twenty years later, and with adult hindsight, she can see that she played an active part in her adolescent misery.
But it was too late to rectify things now. Her mum was dying, her boyfriend and best friend had both died. And the village where she grew up had moved-on without her.
It’s strange how things turn out, isn’t it?
‘Time travel may be possible for some,
 but it happens at impractical times and when you least expect.’
