BlisseKiss Spring Fling

For Spring Fling, I’ve chosen a kissing excerpt from my newest release, The Vampire’s Witch, Book I in the At War in the Willows Series.  Now, don’t get confused, just because the witch’s name is winter, this scene is all about new beginnings, new life, a chance to start over :)  Speaking of chances, there is a chance for you to win a giveaway at the bottom of the post.  Also, go to http://blissekiss.co.uk for a list of links to other participating blogs!

Like a lion over prey, he moved over her. His body felt heavy as it met her softness from head to toe. He kissed her, gently, for the first time, savored the feel of her lips on his as her tongue rubbed along his fangs.
“I taste not only my own arousal, but my own blood.”
“Damn, that was one sexy sentence.” He smiled down at her. And, damn but he could get used to this. A connection, love at first sight, mortal enemies, he just could no longer deny or resist any of it no matter how dangerous or stupid it was.
Moving his hips, he nestled his between hers.
“Am I too cold?” he whispered, as he felt her shudder again.
“No, not too cold.”
When she smiled, his heart – the one that no longer beat, but lie dead in his chest – felt like it came alive for one moment. He reached for the blanket on the bed and pulled it over them, hoped to keep some of her body heat in it. He felt deliciously warm. She’d made him feel so alive, like a true man again. He couldn’t control her thoughts and didn’t know how to send his own to her as she’d just done to him, so he spoke instead; his fear of rejection outweighed by his pleasure.
“You make me feel so alive again, I swear my heart beat. I feel your warmth, not only in your blood running through me, but every place we touch. For so long I’ve hardened myself from the world, taking some physical pleasures, but denying any existence of humanity inside myself. That is until last night when I held you in my arms, carried you across town. You have saved me, ten years ago and again last night. I didn’t know it until just this moment.”
“You’ve saved me too.”
“From what?”
“My solitary existence, even if for just one night if that is all this can be.”
He swept his lips over hers; their smiles coincided against each other.

The Willows is a resort town run by vampires, werewolves and witches. Here, their true identities are kept secret from humans, and intimate relations between the individual clans are strictly forbidden.

When it becomes known that the vampire Amberlyn has fallen in love with the werewolf Kane, the tedious line of their co-existence has been crossed. Caught in the crossfire of this revelation, Drake, the vampire clan leader and Amberlyn’s maker, is killed along with an innocent witch. These deaths spark a series of horrific events leading to an all out War In The Willows.

In Book 1, Amberlyn’s vampire brother, Isaac, always one to kick ass first and deal with the consequences later, kidnaps a witch, Winter. He intends to find out what type of retaliation the witch clan is planning against the vampires and werewolves. In doing so, he finds so much more then he bargained for.  

By Book 2, Isaac and Winter devise a plan to try to get the Elders of the clans talking peacefully. But, things don't go as they'd hoped, and the fighting between the clans becomes more devious - deadly. Now, Devin, another Vampire of Drake's making, steps in to help pick up some of the pieces. 

When Book 3 begins, it is Devin who hides the biggest secret; he’s in love with a local human. In a moment of desperation – of love – Devin sweeps this human, Sara, away to his home in order to keep her out of harm’s way.

Unexpected close encounters, bodies ripe with need, and situations beyond their control lead to forbidden relationships. Now three vampires, a witch, a werewolf and a human must ride along the edges of the rules. They will attempt once unthinkable romantic entanglements despite all those who oppose their relationships while fighting for their lives as well.

With the Willows full of violence and bloodshed, meetings and magic amiss, will the clans ever be able to find peace among them again? Or, will this war destroy the Willows?
