Immortal Embrace, Book One
A businessman by day, by night Dane stalks the streets, fighting against a rising tide of vampire-related homicides. As a member of the Order of the Dragon, he vows to fight other vampires, ones who have given in to their bloodlust. He doesn’t do it for humans—he seeks revenge, to destroy the bastards who turned him into a monster. But then he rescues a woman who calls to him like no other. As their passion ignites and his desire for her threatens to consume him, he starts to wonder what, exactly, is worth fighting for.
Jenny’s old life ends in a parking garage. She’s reborn into a world of fantastic creatures—and unimaginable pleasures. The fierce warrior who saved her makes her feel love and lust as she’s never felt before, and she soon discovers her dark prince is not what he seems. Love, jealousy and betrayal collide and neither Jenny nor Dane will ever be the same.

EXCERPT (WARNING: X-RATED!)
“You have no idea what you do to me,” he rasped, seeking her heat. “You’re so wet. God, I knew you would be.” He groaned harshly, separating her weeping flesh to dip inside her core. His thumb circled her clit and she began to grind against him. “That’s it, baby.” He stroked her sensitive nub while his fingers worked to bring her to a quick release.
“Oh please, Dane,” she panted.
“Please what?” His voice was guttural as he nipped at her breast through the thin cotton fabric of her shirt.
Pain and pleasure fused together and she cried out, riding his hand. He pinched her clit between his fingers, which set off yet another orgasm.
“I want you so badly it hurts.” He drew back when her wave of ecstasy subsided.
“Kiss me.” She gripped his cheeks and ran her tongue along the seam of his lips. His mouth opened to cover hers. His tongue delved deeply. He tasted of vodka and pure, raw male.
“Make love to me.” Her head fell back as she arched against him.
He kissed her throat before he drew back to kiss her lips once more. She felt the sharp prick of his fangs brushing against her tongue but she was too aroused to care.
“I need to taste you.” He sounded hoarse.
The next thing she knew, he’d traced them to the bedroom and she was on the bed, spread open to him. He fisted the front of her t-shirt and tore it off. Before she could gather a coherent thought, he pushed her legs apart and buried his mouth against her slick folds, spreading the soft flesh to lick at her. He slipped the same two fingers back inside her and pumped them in time with each gentle tug on her clit.
Her back arched off the bed and she moaned loudly as her vaginal walls clamped down hard around his fingers. He nuzzled her pussy, growling as he pleasured her. The vibrations intensified the orgasm ripping through her in waves. He continued to suck and lick her there, even after she came down from pure bliss. She tried to wiggle free from his assault but he continued to feast.
“Dane, I can’t take it,” she panted, but he ignored her protests. She clawed the bed and tried to close her legs and sit up.
“Stop resisting me,” he snarled, pinning her legs open and burying his tongue deep inside her core.
She gasped in shock from the intrusion of his tongue tunneling in and out aggressively. Her back bowed as his mouth relentlessly took her, his sharp fangs spreading her open to give him better access. She climbed higher and higher with each sweep of his tongue until he drew out another climax. She moaned at the mind-blowing pleasure sweeping through her while she convulsed against his mouth. He slowed, finally letting her up.
There were no words to describe the range of emotions that flooded her brain, all crashing in at once. He did things to her, made her feel alive, wanted, beautiful. He peered down at her with such utter longing. No human guy had ever worshiped her like this.
And now, let’s get to know Erin better, because we Smutketeers are a nosy bunch!
Because I like delving deeper into the character. I think sex is a very natural and beautiful part of who we are. I like to know my characters intimately and want to share that component with the reader. It seems like the natural progression in any romantic story I’m writing. When you close the bedroom door it feels like something is missing.
How much down time do you generally take between books?
Not much. I love to write and usually hop write into the next story because for me, writing is an outlet which I truly enjoy. Creating the story and watching the characters come to life on the page is exciting to me. It pulls me back to it every single time.
Do you do anything to celebrate or reward yourself for finishing a book?
Sometimes I’ll buy myself something or go to dinner with the family. But mostly, I’m grinning from ear to ear because it’s like giving birth. The journey was long and the process was sometimes hard, but the end result is so worth it.
If you could travel to any one place, where would it be?
I want to go to Scotland and Ireland.
Do you collect anything?
Hats. I love them.
What’s your idea of a romantic evening?
Dinner and a movie at home. Maybe some hot sex. I’m a simple gal.
Do you incorporate people you know into your stories?
No. My characters are all unique. They have a life of their own and don’t represent life experiences or anyone I know. Fantasy is so much better and I like creating a character from scratch and breathing life into them. It’s so much more rewarding.
How do you recharge your batteries?
I read. Nothing relaxes me more than curling up with a good book.
What are you reading right now?
The Midnight Playground Series. I love my buddy Eden. She is both an inspiration and a dear friend. Love her deliciously devilish vampires. I’ve started with THE SEEKING KISS. I’ve decided to start at the beginning of the series and will finish up with ROGUE. I always read in the genre I’m currently writing. It keeps my creative side on that mode. Plus, I love to support my fellow authors.
What inspired this story?
To be honest, Bram Stroker’s Dracula. I love Gary Oldman’s character, especially when he starts to interact with Mina, the object of his affection, their love story was bittersweet and I found this portrayal of the vampire to be a gothically sexy version of this classic tale.
