Twisted Angel release day – read an excerpt and comment to win!

Twisted Angel is released with Total-E-Bound today and, as with every release, I’m pleased as punch!

It’s a Lust Bite about a mischievous heroine, Bella, who falls for hero, Charles, in the course of her attempts to trick him in her own personal way.    

 I’m particularly proud of this story because I don’t often do paranormal, at least not to a great extent. ESP tends to be my limit. In addition, it isn’t a romance in the traditional sense as the characters are far from lovey-dovey.  

I also did a touch of agonising over the title, which I have never been good at choosing. It was very nearly called Hell’s Angel, but I was concerned about the connotations of a biker link. There was Demon Daughter, Satan’s Star. Yes, I do like alliteration.   

Anyway, I settled on Twisted Angel, which some may consider a bit of a misnomer, but why can’t she be an angel? Wasn’t Lucifer a resident of heaven before he fell from grace?

A perfect story for those who like being bad, or at least reading about them! An excerpt follows to tease. If you like what you read, leave a comment for your chance to win an e-book copy. The lucky winner will be announced on 21 April.  She could feel him.

Though not with him, she could feel the deep, even breaths that confirmed he slept. The sensation would normally bore her, but Bella got a sense of satisfaction from knowing that Charles was at rest. A rarely felt feeling of relaxation.

Sound slumber didn’t last, immediately raising her hackles as his anguish fuelled hers. She watched him twist beneath the sheets in silent dismay, his growing distress manifested by pain that hit her like a bolt and gripped her side to bend her double.  

Soaring through the darkness, her swift arrival came in conjunction with his yell, some unknown image making it burst from his mouth.

Looking down at him like a worried guardian, Bella could see him perfectly despite the darkness of his bedroom. The powerful effect his voice had on her failed to influence him in the same way, allowing him to remain asleep.

Soothing him with a shushing sound, she elongated the quiet note though it felt strange.

Usually, she would have been more inclined to observe his mind control his body, gaining amusement from his twitching form. Occasionally, she would go so far as to manipulate a good dream just to get her kicks. However, her normal taste for evil deeds failed to materialise as she watched Charles, his restless and sweating body partially exposed by sheets inadvertently dragged down.

The uncomfortable desire to make him feel better consumed her. What is wrong with me? she thought, biting her lip as she looked around the stylish bedroom, which felt stifling, the musky scent of fear making her nostrils flare. I should just go. 

Like him, the room was style over substance—rigidly fixed to a cold colour scheme of black, white and grey. Typical of him, the decor supported her idea to leave and let the nightmare run its course. 

With another movement, he broke her resolve, earning her attention by murmuring unintelligibly and turning from his back to his side.     

Returning to the bed that dominated the room, she looked down at him, beads of sweat glistening on his neck. 

The second night of being tormented by his subconscious, his powerful body weakened as he attempted to squirm away from what haunted him. Her normally effective powers of telepathy failed her, leaving her mind too clouded to read the thoughts filling his head, let alone manipulate them.

Tightly clenching her fists, she felt her perfectly manicured red-tipped nails leave imprints in the heels of her hands. Though she wanted to be the one to help him, the desire was unnatural and left her at a loss.

Charles inadvertently instructed her when he moaned and shifted position, kicking away the sheets until they were hitched low on his waist. He revealed a naked body sculpted with vanity and abused by excess, drawing Bella’s gaze to his developed chest that glistened temptingly. The sight of the dark, erect little buds of his nipples was alluring enough to send a tremor up her spine.
