“I’m always entertained by a good Gothic novel. The psychological elements amped up the suspense really well; particularly with the hypnosis… This story is downright nifty. I was drawn to the potential social ramifications and how easy it is to get taken in by a good narrative (both figuratively and literally). It’s good entertainment and might make for an interesting book club read.”

“Ms. Brooks does an amazing job of creating an intriguing plot woven into engaging characters that are as distinctive as they are eccentric…The suspense elements are there again, much like in book 1, and you will simultaneously worry and cheer the sisters on…there are romantic elements (Casey and Ryan) that will take you through a range of emotions…this book was an emotional rollercoaster for me and I loved every minute of it.”
This is a featured article column called FIRST KISS. We ask authors to share a first kiss scene from one of their books published in 2017. And each author graciously sent in an excerpt. Enjoy!
All Marisol Lewis had ever wanted was a family, but her ex-husband back on Earth made sure that would never happen while they were together. Now? After waking up on an alien planet, she has a plan, and she’s more determined than ever to see it through on her own.
Luca and Baelion are dragon shifters with a troubled past. Shunned by their own people, they now work for the Coalition Council taking rescue jobs that no one else can do. They manage to find Marisol when she gets abducted–but their rescue plans take a wrong turn, and they all end up stranded on a dangerous, quarantined planet.
Mari finds out the hard way that life often gets in the way of best-laid plans…and dragon shifters most definitely do get in the way of hers. Good thing for her that dragons are naturally quite stubborn once they decide they want something–and they’ve decided she’s theirs.
FIRST KISS EXCERPT:
“So”—she waded in up to her knees, sighing at how good the cool water felt on her abused muscles—“how is it even possible for you guys to shift from huge dragons back into men? I mean, obviously, you have way more mass in your dragon form. Where does it go when you’re as you are now?”
Mari could tell she’d surprised him with the nature of her question, but the science of it all was fascinating to her, and she wasn’t the type of person who could not know and be all ‘woo-woo, it must be magic.’
“You’re the first person to ask me that particular question.” He grinned at her. “Give me your hand and I will show you.”
She stepped closer and placed her hand in his, shivering when he ran his thumb gently across her palm.
“In this form, we are much denser than any other shifter,” he explained before he placed his wrist in her hand and let the weight of his arm go. “See? I’m still holding approximately seventy-five percent of my own weight.”
Marisol was shocked when her hand dropped under the weight of his arm. There was no way she could have held it up with one hand at all, maybe not even with two. Continue reading
