Touch of the Demon - Release Day Party!!!


It's finally here! Friday 13th March 2009 which means Touch of the Demon hits the cyber shelves at The Wild Rose Press!

So, along with the glittery elephant, jelly and ice cream and hot cabana boys (what, you didn't think I'd forget the eye candy, did you?) I'm offering a free download of Touch of the Demon to one person who leaves a comment on this post during Friday 13th/Saturday 14th March.

As soon as Demon is up on The Wilder Roses page, I'll link directly to it.

Later today (Aussie and NZ time) I'm going to be roasted at The Book Roast where another copy of Demon will be up for grabs! All you have to do is pop on over and either answer the insanely cool question which will be posted, or just leave a comment!

Edited to Add: I'm now live at the Book Roast! Love to see you over there!!!

Plus - I'm now chatting about how I research my mythology for my stories over at Skhye Moncrief's blog! And another chance to win a copy of Demon!

In the meantime, I'll leave you with an excerpt:

“I’ll beg you for nothing.” It was a lie. If Celeste thought begging could get her anywhere, then she would already be on her knees before him. She kept that knowledge locked deep in her heart.

Rafe took a step toward her and her heart hammered in her breast. He was taller than any human she had known over the years. But then, he wasn’t human. Beneath the long leather coat he wore against the night’s chill air, his broad shoulders all but blotted out the rest of the world.

She sucked in a suddenly panicked breath, and his evocative scent of other worldly essences, meshed with hot, heavy male enveloped her. Against every principle she stood for, her nipples strained against the fabric of her bodice, peaking with desire and disgust and pure, animal heat.

A mocking smile twisted his full sensual lips. “I could make you beg, human.” His finger traced the outline of her face and she shuddered, hating the way she reacted and yet unable to help herself. “I might even listen to your pleas.” His smoky whisper shimmered along her senses, searing with words unsaid.

Edited: Woot! The link has just gone up on TWRP! Here it is!

Oh, and I just had to post this gorgeous glittery picture (yes I'm very fond of glittery things, in case you wondered!!!) Not only does she have the starlit hair of my heroine, but also her name! The picture is titled "Celeste in Water". It's got to be a Sign!!!
