Christmas Wonder Giveaway Hop at christinemurphybooks

christmas wonder Dec 2014Welcome! I’m Christine Murphy and welcome to my Blog Site. You can also find me at christinemurphybooks.com.  What I’m looking forward to during the Holidays is seeing my sons.  Both of them live in other areas of the U.S. so getting all of us together is a challenge.  I’m so excited that I spent the last week of November decorating my entire house for Christmas.  I can’t help it as I haven’t had the whole family together in a while.  As far as my wish list for books I’ve been working hard on my second book of the Wild Clan Sagas.  I want to give my daughter-in-law a signed draft copy.  Maybe some day I’ll actually be famous and it will be worth something.  That would be my Christmas wish!  :)

Anyway, in celebration of Christmas and the Christmas Wonder Giveaway Hop I am giving a pre-view of my next upcoming series. Filled with handsome heroes, the evil villains they fight against, and the women they are willing to do anything to protect – their Spirit Hearts. The Riders both crave their Spirit Heart’s body and their blood; and these women are the only ones who can save the Midnight Rider’s enslaved souls.

The Midnight Riders Series

Midnight Riders 1 FlattenedFrom the fertile Seven Rivers Region of Kazakhstan in the high pastures of the
Altai Mountains lived the Sarmatians. Formed from the Amazons and the
Scythians, the nomadic tribes pillaged and destroyed at whim until they earned
the wrath of the Sun Goddess who stopped their destructive ways. Her ultimate
punishment was giving them a choice to be heartless unseen demons left to
forever wander the Earth or lose their mortality, their soul, and love and
protect the innocent to possibly earn her forgiveness. These are the stories of
the Sarmatian protectors who through the ages have become The Midnight Riders. They fight to protect the innocent against the Scythian demons who have found a way to manifest their presence. Come follow the Midnight Riders and their hopes that one day they will find their true Spirit Heart and be set free.

  • ROAD TO REDEMPTION

An adventurous motorcycle rally she expects, but her world is turned upside down when she is pursued by an ancient evil intent on stealing her life and spirit and a handsome biker who will risk his very existance to save her. The first time Gabriel touches her, he knows he is doomed. Her blood and spirit calls out to him but her love will always be denied to him as foretold by the Sun Goddess and by the evidence of his Soul Amulet dying. Caught in a violent storm and a Scythian demon hot on their heels, Gabriel and Destinee will only have each other and the forbidden love they share to keep them alive.

Tristan will save her and reveal what he is and the battle of the Midnight Riders against Scythian Spirit Reapers. Even in the face of an angered Sun Goddess, Jaimie will make a vow to retrieve the Compass of Devotion to save both Tristan and the Riders from the uncontrolled anger of the Goddess. Risking it all she will confront David, the Scythian Spirit Reapers, the Sun Goddess herself, and her own mortality.

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.
