SphinxTempted_FINAL_lacey

Summary:

 

After escaping The Foundry, Ashlyn is found and taken to Complex 46 where she becomes a powerful protector of the Elders.  After she is injured, the Sphinx Warrior, Caleb, touches her and everything changes for both of them as their powers come to life as well as their undeniable need for each other.  As Power Mates they will learn to overcome the obstacles trying to keep them apart and Join as one.  As Warriors, they will face certain death, but they’re love will give them the strength in the battle against the Wraith.

Excerpt:

The bath was filled with the clearest aqua blue water he had ever seen.  The urge to dive in and wash the Wraith blood from his body was almost overwhelming but the presence of Ashlyn before him stilled him in place.  She was Egyptian artistry herself as she stood at the end of the pool with her back to him.  She had removed her boots, weapons belt, and her fatigue pants so he could admire her long sleek legs.  Her fiery auburn hair was loose hanging down her back until it almost touched her waist.  His hands shook with the desire to touch her and run his fingers through her hair. 

From her stance Caleb could see she was still upset.  Hands on her hips, Ashlyn’s very aura kept the two Egyptian females who were dressed in white robes away from her.  Caleb could tell they were just trying to help her bathe but she wasn’t having any of it.  He felt her energy surge for just a moment and with a hiss she demanded, “Both of you out and make sure you keep anyone else out of here until I’m finished!”

Obviously not needing any more encouragement the two women skittered away and out the door on the opposite end of the huge bath.  Yeah, his Ashlyn was definitely still upset but it eased him to see she was acting more like her old self.  Standing where he was Caleb couldn’t see her face but the rolling of her shoulders in an attempt to wind down told him she still needed space.  When she raised her arms and lifted her long locks off the back of her neck her t-shirt lifted even more exposing her bare bottom.

Caleb swallowed thickly .  He wanted nothing more than to press Ashlyn’s sensual body up against his.  Fighting the urge was almost impossible but for her he demanded his body to behave.  She needed time and he already knew she had issues with males.  Whatever had happened to her in the past had caused long lasting effects on her personality and behavior.  The Foundary surfaced in his mind and he was almost certain she had been abused by their hands.

Not wanting to, but knowing he had to leave her alone until she was ready to approach him, Caleb started to back away towards the door.  He froze in place when she turned her head ever so slightly to the side and whispered, “Don’t go, Caleb.  Stay.”

SphinxAwakened_FINAL_lacey

Summary:

Prisoner in a mental facility, Lily hopes one day a hero will rescue her.  When rescue does come, it is in the form of Hunter, a Sphinx Warrior.  Once he touches Lily, both mind and body, Hunter and his inner Sphinx are lost to the influence of her grace and beauty.  Lily’s incredible Powers will save Hunter and his intense love will save Lily from certain death.  Together they will successfully retrieve the Sixth Page hidden for centuries to further the battle against the dark Wraith enemy.

Excerpt:

Tentatively Lily placed her palms against Hunters chest.  Under her fingertips she felt his quick indrawn breath and the rapid pounding of his heart.  His muscles even twitched against her as if bolts of energy transferred from her to him.  Fascinated with the feel of him she smoothed her hands over his chest and over to his arms sliding over the material of his black shirt until her hands made contact with his skin.  He was so incredibly warm and she imagined fine velvet wrapped over hard steel when she smoothed her hands down his forearms.  She wondered what the rest of him felt like and had the strongest desire to pull his shirt up and tunnel underneath to feel the hard muscles of his stomach.  Not quite ready for that much adventure, she returned her exploration to his chest but couldn’t resist sliding her hands down until his firmly muscled stomach was under her palms but still covered by his shirt.

Hunter moaned and grabbed her wrists.  “Careful, Lily.  My inner beast is prowling and you’re not ready for that kind of adventure yet.”

Feeling challenged she looked up at him from under her eyelashes.  Even though she was exhausted, the feel of him and the sensations coming from Hunter through their connection was making her braver than she would be normally.  “How do you know I’m not ready Hunter?  I’ve been waiting for someone to make me whole forever.  I want to feel more with you.  I want you to be even closer to me Hunter.”

The rush of energy which came from Hunter was incredible surrounding both him and her.  One moment everything was normal and the next his Life Power exploded from him in shimmering swirls.  The energy settled on her making her skin tingle deliciously.  She wanted more so pulled at Hunter’s entrapping hands to get closer to him.  Obliging her, he let go of her wrists and cupped her face in his slightly shaking hands.  Hunter was holding back but Lily didn’t want him to.

Perhaps he felt what she wanted because he leaned down and kissed her.  The moment his lips touched hers the world ceased to exist and her entire being was drawn into Hunter.  Only the two of them existed.  He teased, he tantalized, and he knew just exactly what to do to make her want more.  He softly kissed her but within moments the kiss became more demanding.  Hunter nipped at her and then ran his tongue along the seam of her lips.  She had never been kissed before but knew what he wanted and opened for him.  Rewarding her, he delved inside and stroked his talented tongue along hers.

Lily didn’t ever want the kiss to end but Hunter pulled back and inhaled deeply as if trying to get control before he thickly he said,  “Great Ancients, Lily.  You tempt me, but we need to take this slow.  Have mercy on this Warrior.  You may be innocent but I do believe you have a temptress in there.”

Secretly she smiled to herself as she leaned against him.  Lily was tired of slow and of being denied all the wonderful things she had every intention of experiencing now.  She knew Hunter was concerned for her well being and his need to protect her even extended to keeping himself in check.  He would never hurt her and she knew this without one ounce of doubt.  She was finally complete and totally safe and cherished by someone.

Now something about my latest book. Newly Released – From Red Sage Publishing – Sphinx Imagined by Christine Murphy – The fourth book in The Sphinx Warriors Series.

SphinxImagined_Final_lacey

http://www.eredsage.com/store/SphinxImagined.html

Summary:

Skye has led a life completely separated from others because of her telepathic skills. One bright light in her life are the images of a dream man who invades her waking thoughts and dreams. Little does she know she is about to run head long into him. Ethan must bring Skye back to the Complex where he is torn between his family’s need of her special talents, his desire to keep her safe, and his own craving to make her his Power Mate.

Excerpt:

Ethan had to get Skye out of there but had no energy to even roll over. He feared he was done but he had to warn her. He couldn’t see her but reached out anyway and hoarsely whispered, “Skye, listen to me. You know me. It’s Ethan.” He gasped and fell into a fit of violent coughing as the Wraith poison worked its damage on him. Taking another breath he tried again. “It’s Ethan. Please listen to me. You have to escape. Go. Hide. You should be safe in your home. My friends will come to help me. I let them know where you are, don’t be afraid of them. Skye?”

Just when he was losing hope she was even anywhere near him, he saw her tentative approach. Panic, terror, pure fear was still written on her face. Tears ran down her cheeks from the most beautiful hazel eyes he had ever seen. The one light above her shown through her shoulder length curly ginger brown hair giving it a reddish golden glow almost like a halo.

“Sunshine,” he whispered. “Don’t be afraid of me. I would never harm you.” Ethan closed his eyes for a moment feeling the edge of the end reaching out for him. His Life Power was gone and his heart was giving out. It just figured he would finally meet the one woman who could have made the hell of his existence heaven and now he had to die.

“Please don’t die, Ethan.” Came the gentle request. He forced his eyes open to see Skye was now sitting on the ground next to him. The fear in her sweet face was gone but concern and the budding knowledge of who he was began to show in her features. “Hold on. We can get you to a hospital.”

Ethan reached toward her but she wrapped her arms around herself. Maybe she still did fear him. He didn’t know and was too weak to really care. He dropped his arm to the ground and looked away from her to his Sefu Element lying several feet away from him on the ground. Soon the Element would die without him and he knew he wasn’t too far behind it. Sadly he turned back toward her and tried to smile to reassure her. He figured the smile came out more as a grimace when she started to reach out to him this time.

“No. I can’t be taken to a hospital. It’s too dangerous Skye.” He croaked as the weakness and darkness began to overwhelm him completely. “Get to… get to safety. Save yourself. Leave me here. Please.”

Ethan couldn’t get anything more out. It was too hard to even breathe anymore. He didn’t want to leave her. Had just found her, damn it, but the voices of the Ancients were calling to him. As his consciousness slipped away he felt her small warm hand grasp his unharmed hand and the multi-leveled, multi-harmonic command of her soft voice as she demanded, “Stay with me, Ethan. I need you.”
