Sneak Peek Sunday Blog Hop – June 23, 2013

Welcome to the next hop in the Sneak Peek Sunday Blog Hop and my blog site. I am Christine Murphy, paranormal romance author and creator of the Sphinx Warriors Series and the Midnight Rider’s Series.

And now, just for you, here is a treat excerpt from my fourth book in The Sphinx Warriors Series – Sphinx Imagined. Future release from Red Sage Publishing. Enjoy!

Sphinx Imagined 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.”

Bad Boys of Romance Giveaway Hop at Herding Cats and Burning Soup – June 7 – 17, 2013

Bad Boys of Romance Blog Hop BannerWelcome to the next hop in the Bad Boys of Romance Giveaway Hop and my blog site. I am Christine Murphy, paranormal romance author and creator of the Sphinx Warriors Series and the Midnight Rider’s Series.

Bad Boys sounds just absolutely hot!!  Bad boys are just calling to those willing women and bring them heat and passion.  Hanging out on the beaches and hunting for those tempting bad boys walking by on the beach. Bad boys are on so many of my book covers which are in the process of being created.  I can hardly wait to share!!. One such bad boy is on my Sphinx Resurrected cover so I am including an excerpt from Sphinx Resurrected.

And now, just for you, here is a treat excerpt from my available book – Sphinx Resurrected, the first book of The Sphinx Warriors Series. Also, please find below the video! Enjoy!

Michael was spell-bound watching her. At first, he thought perhaps she wanted to just have the feel of the fresh grass under her feet while searching out the Life Force. But to his surprise, she was quite the quick study. As soon as she had made contact with the bare earth and searched the Life Power out, it had been drawn to her like it had been waiting for her forever. It embraced her much like the way he wanted to. To surround her in his energy and enjoy every square inch of her while she responded to him in a way the pure rapture on her face indicated she was responding now. He watched and almost felt he was guilty of spying on something intimate. She was a natural, harnessing the Life Power and quickly her body showed it. Her skin was sparkling and glowing from head to toe and he could see where her eyelashes were brushing her cheeks there was a slight glow coming from her eyes. He realized he had to intervene or she would quickly absorb too much. Being her first experience, his little Power Keeper could quickly get into trouble with what to do with it and possibly injure herself or someone near her. Had he known her intentions, he would have cautioned her on how far to go with this first experience.

He stepped up as close as possible to her as he could. Reaching out, he moved to place his hands on specific spots used for contact during the Transference of Life Power. He had to place them correctly to make sure there was no back lash from the Life Power rampantly running through her. He grasped both of her arms with his hands positioned under her forearms and slid them as close as possible to her elbows. Luckily, with the movement, Stormy naturally grasped his forearms with her hands. He leaned forward and whispered in her ear, “Stormy, I hate to interrupt your enjoyment, but this is the first time for you as a Power Keeper, and any more we will both be in trouble.” On so many levels – he groaned in his mind.

Stormy appeared to come back to herself from the raw pleasure of the Life Power. She evidently had been way too enjoying herself. She was gripping his arms so tightly, he was surprised he had any circulation to his hands. He was so close to her, he could hear the panting of her breath near his ear. To his dismay, the huge amount of energy spiraling throughout her body was enormous and he really didn’t know what the next steps were to ease her discomfort. Michael felt the tremors running through Stormy’s body and her heart rate and breathing increase even more. He knew she was beginning to panic and he had to calm her before the situation went south.

“It’s alright, I have you.” At least he hoped he did. He had to calm her down and bring her confidence back which she so courageously showed a moment before. “Open your eyes and concentrate on me, Stormy.” She opened her eyes looking directly at him. As always when he looked at her, he could feel himself drowning in those brilliant sea green eyes that were now glowing so softly. “Concentrate on me. I’m going to link with you and the flow of the Life Power. You’ll feel me and I’ll guide you to release the energy back into your surroundings. Slowly so you don’t disturb the rhythm but quickly enough so it’s directed into the right location.”

“Can’t I transfer it to you?” She inquired innocently.

Michael’s entire body wanted that on so many levels but now was not the time. “Not yet. This experience is new to you and we need to take this one step at a time. Ready?” She paused, but then with a deep breath gave the affirmative nod. He smiled reassuringly at her even though he was unsure of the outcome of controlling this much Life Power. He took a deep breath, paused…paused, and then his inner Sphinx side dove in to the bright energy.

Welcome To The Sneak Peek Sunday Blog Hop – June 2, 2013

Welcome to the next hop in the Sneak Peek Sunday Blog Hop and my blog site. I am Christine Murphy, paranormal romance author and creator of the Sphinx Warriors Series and the Midnight Rider’s Series.

And now, just for you, here is a treat excerpt from my second book in The Sphinx Warriors Series – Sphinx United. Future release from Red Sage Publishing. Enjoy!

Sphinx United Excerpt:

He waited holding his breath and looked at her beautiful features.  She was still pale, but already he could see improvement.  Her waist length white blond hair was loose and draped around her shoulders sparkling with shine once again.  Light baby blue eyes looked up at him in wonder like she had discovered something incredible.  He had always gotten lost in the depths of her gorgeous sparkling eyes just as he was being drawn in now.  And then his wait was over.  Her fingertips made contact and he was in pure heaven.  Everything for him clicked into place, his entire body singing its joy and need for her.  His inner Sphinx purred in pure contentment.  He just had to hold himself back just a little longer while she explored.

Eleina leaned in closer to him.  She closed her eyes and inhaled deeply.  Jacob didn’t move an inch.  Just the look of pleasure on her face was enough to drive him beyond temptation.  She opened her eyes and seemed mesmerized.  She was so close he could feel her gentle breaths across his lips.  A weak thought whispered across their link.  Kiss him?

Well, what an interesting idea Jacob mused.  Her look grew hotter and he felt like he was being caressed by her glance alone.  He was on fire and the trail her fingers blazed made the heat sink further under his skin.  Her fingertips seemed to have a mind of their own as she trailed them down his cheek and then over to his full lips.  Her touch was so soft and delicate across his lips.  He wanted to reach out with his tongue and lick them but he refrained.  Who knew what she would do in her heightened state of awareness.
