Lately I’ve been working hard on SOUL KISSED, book two in my Shadow Kissed series. Even when I’m not writing, I can be found staring off into space imagining what’s coming in the next scenes. If I have a goofy smile on my face, it’s probably HOT.
Today I’m spotlighting book one, FIRE KISSED, which released in September. If you’re looking for a HOT read this holiday season, this one is full of fire. Literally. The hero is Jack Bastian, an angel who has to contend with Kaye Brand, a mage woman who has fire in her blood.
Here’s a sneak peek at the sparks between them:
Excerpt from Fire Kissed
The house was dark. He slammed the door behind him.
She flipped on the entrance hall light. Took off her coat. Put it over her arm. Regal. Her act. Liar. Couldn’t believe a thing the woman did or said.
Her mouth was moving. “…suspend meeting with clients…”
But the sounds were warped. The tilt of her face shifted slightly this way. And slightly that. Her tongue artfully shaping sounds that made no sense.
“…can’t very well continue when…”
She tucked a curl behind her ear.
“…for a little while…”
“…not when Ferro…”
And then Jack was kissing her. Because she couldn’t say that name again, not one more time tonight, or tomorrow, or ever again, in his presence. He had to kiss all knowledge of it out of her and leave nothing but himself behind. He was a moth to her flame and he didn’t care.
His hands gripped her upper arms, but when she opened her mouth under his, her body saying yes, he made a grab for all of her. Hauled her up against the wall.
He trapped her there, his hand at her breast, his tongue rasping against hers, wild and wet. A bolt of lightning heat went through him, as if God struck, but Jack held on to Kaye and for once refused to care. His groin beat dark and needy, while he gripped the fabric of her dress and ripped because he couldn’t begin to think about zippers or buttons.
He felt a flutter of movement at his waist. Her bare hands found the skin at his navel. And he made an inhuman sound of longing.
She pulled out of the kiss to shhhh him, comforting, while she stroked and peeled off clothes to get them closer. Coat. Suit jacket. A tug and yank at his shirt.
“I’m here. I’m yours,” she said, answering the need he couldn’t have put into words if he’d tried.

I am going with the number 1 guy.
I like #3. Great choices.
WOW…yes, it’s hot in here! #3 gets my vote.
kareninnc at gmail dot com
#3! He’s got just enough hair on his chest and a thoughtful look .
Hot guy 2!!! Please can I take him home? 😉
Pic no #2 🙂
I would most definitely have to say #2! He melts my heart!
I love hot guy 3… he looks absolutely sexy and hot. yum yum.
Really liking guy #3 😉
#3 gets my vote!
Hot guy no. 3’s muscles, I mean facial expression really makes me want to enlighten him on Fire Kissed storyline, with some, ehm, practical examples…
Gonna have to say #2 – Just something about him nabs me. And he’s not overly muscled like the other two. Though I wish they had a bit more hair…

Hot Guy #3
Hot guy #3 gets my vote! *fans self*
I would say Hot Guy 3, but I cracked up when I read what Hot Guy 2 said. That was funny! LOL!
#3 gets my vote
It was a tought choice between hot guy#1 and #3. Hot guy#2 was out because of the pants. That might be crazy, but slacks vs. jeans? Jeans win. So, how to decide between #1 and #3….hmmmm…I love a man with chest hair…but I do not like “trimmed” chest hair. That leaves me with hot guy#1. I’ll take him…ok, who am I kidding? I’d take all of them.
I’ll go with Hot Guy #1 please! don’t enter for a copy of FIRE KISSED, I already have one 🙂 and loved it!!!!
I’m going with #1. He looks a little like Daniel Craig.
Thanks for the giveaway.
What a tough choice um I think Number 1
It’s a toss up between hot guy #1 and #2 for me but I’m gonna go with hot guy #1!

Hard choice – it was between Hot Guy #1 and #2, love those hairless chests. 😀 I’d choose #2, he looks yummy.

Ooh hot guy 3 tho that’s if I have to pick just one. I like angel books I have got to expand my horizons to new authors!!
Wait, I have to pick one? Seriously? Can’t I just have all three? 🙂
No? Well, in that case I’ll go with #1… it’s all about those obliques & deltoids!
I pick hot guy #2! I like the dark hair. Thanks for the giveaway!

#3!! He’s the perfect mix between 1 and 2!
#2 I know it is black and white, but those eyes!! They are calling me.
I have been blog hopping and see so much skin I can’t remember where I have been. I guess if you can’t take the heat get out of the blog.
#3. I’m not sure what it is. Maybe the pose. Love the chest hair! Thanks so much!
