Sphinx United at the Alpha Male Madness Giveaway Hop – April 11 – 18, 2014

alpha male big to useWelcome to my blog – christinemurphybooks. All I can say is yummy to alpha males.  They’re strong, demanding, and can take and defend exactly what they want.  The image for the hop says it all with being strong.  I like a male who is pure chiseled muscle and has a rock hard stomach.  Just the thought of touching all that muscle gives me shivers of delight.  The word demanding has so many meanings but the demands I am looking for are of love, commitment, and one heck of a wild ride in bed.  My alpha male would defend me with every breath he takes and to the ends of the earth and back.  That is the alpha male that would have my love, body,and soul.  Yummy! This is what I am creating in my new series – The Midnight Riders.  Here is an image of what I think one of the Midnight Riders would look like – Darius, who will defend his Spirit Heart with everything in his heart.   Mace

Summary: Trained from birth to protect the Sphinx Warriors, Eleina sacrifices herself to save the Warriors and her one true love, Jacob, by destroying a Dimensional Gate. Believing Eleina has died in the process, Jacob is left a broken man and he submerges himself in his duties as a Warrior until an accident reveals Eleina is still trapped in the Gate. Once free of her entrapment, she is alive but her body and mind is damaged. Jacob will do everything in his power to help her and the only thing keeping her sane is the irresistible draw and attraction to a Warrior she can’t even remember.

Excerpt:

His mind and body was in pure chaos. One minute he was in hell, the next he was in heaven, and the next a combination of the two with purgatory thrown in. The danger had been real. He had felt it when Eleina had screamed in his mind and he had used his Power to fight off the dark entity from her. When he had lost the connection after that he had freaked. Thinking he had possibly harmed her in his intended defense, he had raced through the Complex to get to the Medical Facility to check on her. To his ultimate nightmare, she had been gone. No one had been able to tell him what had happened to her and he had gone off the deep end. He was sure Khenti Michael was going to ream him a new one. He had cursed and yelled at medical staff to a point he couldn’t even remember. Luckily Alexandria hadn’t been there, otherwise he would have really been in deep trouble.

Even with all of his shouting, no one had been able to help him. He had stormed into the hallway and leaned against the hallway wall in an effort to calm himself. It was then he began to sense her again and the trail of her very essence had brought him here to the Garden Dome. Now, she was fully linked to him, their internal connection to each other wide bringing him such heaven in knowing she was alright. Not only was she fine, she had remembered how to draw the Life Power to her and that her source was from the water. Yes, she had always been a water Sphinx. And what a gorgeous Sphinx she was. The woman was not even the least bit shy. She stood in the water before him completely nude, her luscious full breasts uncovered, her pink nipples drawn up tight from the cool water. What he would be willing to do to have his mouth on them.

These thoughts were where the heaven and hell with purgatory came in. He needed to touch her, but how could he? It all came back to four things. She couldn’t remember him, he had sent her to her death, his negative Life Power could hurt her at any moment, and the little fact he would have to share her with the other Warriors as a Power Keeper. He needed someone to just put him out of his misery.

Jacob’s body was cranked up at a speed he didn’t know if he could even control. He should just leave but seeing her now with the Life Power caressing her body and her skin and baby blue eyes taking on a healthy glow again was something he just couldn’t walk away from. Plus she was looking at him with those mesmerizing eyes and slowly moving toward the edge of the water. Each step forward brought her farther out of the water until it lapped at her belly button, down to the curve of her hip, and just at the top of her feminine curls. White blond curls just peaking out of the water.

He threw up his hand growling, “Stop. Now.”

Eleina paused reaching up to brush a curling strand of hair back behind her ear. Her expression was pleading as though she was lost in this world. Desperate with need to be held. She suddenly shivered crossing her arms over her chest looking uncertain. His Eleina was never uncertain. “Jacob, when you said I was yours forever, did you mean it?”

The question was a punch to his gut. Of course he had meant it. Meant it with every breath in his body. He could no longer stand there worshiping her and not be able to touch her. With fierce determination, he marched toward her grabbing his shirt and tearing it off over his head flipping it behind him to the ground. The rest would just have to get wet because he couldn’t wait any longer to touch her.

He cut through the water with ease reaching her in record time. The Power she was gathering cascaded around him touching his body and further connecting him to her before he even touched her. The first touch was more intense than his active imagination could even make it. His hands connected with the sides of her face in a gentleness he didn’t feel in the least, but he didn’t want to frighten her. The rest of his body followed pressing against hers. Waiting any longer for one needed kiss wasn’t an option. His inner Sphinx demanded and his body screamed its pure need. He hovered just inches away from those delectably parted lips waiting in an ultimate moment of anticipation before the final touch.

It was a split second of waiting but seemed forever with the aching need for the connection. Not only his need but hers coming through loud and clear down their link. His lips touched tentatively at first, a gentle brush of love, and no more. It was too much and yet not enough. There was no holding back. He dove in deep crushing his lips to hers, his body to hers. He ran his hand down her bare soft back to the bottom of her spine splaying his hand there and pushing her hips into his….

The Source – Meme #11 – Together they will defy a futuristic society to reclaim love.

logo book hooksWelcome to my blog site and the Book Hooks Blog Hop Book Hooks is a weekly meme hosted by the MFRW Authors Blog. It’s a chance for all you great readers to check out samples of author’s WIPs or previously published books. I am Christine Murphy, romance author and creator of the Sphinx Warriors Series, The Source – A Wild Clan Saga Novel, and the Midnight Rider’s Series.

 

Here is the next meme from The Source for your enjoyment.

Not soon enough the elevator picked him up and deposited him back on the ground floor of his Handler’s building.  Stepping out of the elevator, he found his newly washed and polished black Puma already waiting for him on the entry platform.  The robotics of the parking decks were nothing but efficient and timely.  Pressing his thumb to the vehicle access plate, the door opened and he sat back into the leather seat of his favorite possession.  Already his system calmed and he relaxed further into the seat.  Closing the door, Nathan started the engine and instantly the Puma purred to life.

Shifting into gear, he hit the accelerator, and with screeching tires and a bit of burning rubber, he expertly spun his vehicle completely around and roared for the exit.  Flying towards the Security booth, the guard barely had time to lift the barrier out of his way before he would have plowed into it.  Passing by he could just hear her curses as he flew through the narrow opening and careened out into the dark of the night.  Roaring down the streets of the Courtyard District, which were still fairly busy, he made record time getting over to the opposite side of downtown Denver.

With other driver’s honking at him in outrage and cursing at him through half open windows, Nathan sped through the brightly lit ground lanes and ignored them all not caring if he was winning in the competition of aggressive drivers or not.  The only thing he wanted was to get to his destination on the far side of the Theater District and The Inspire and get the beginning of either a pleasurable or nightmare assignment over with.  Rounding the last corner, he cringed when he saw the towering Headquarters building and the medical facility with their reflective mirror appearance heralding his arrival at his destination.  Speeding even faster and risking the possibility of having his car impounded, Nathan set a new downtown speed record for circling one of the largest city blocks in the UNS.   He didn’t even slow down for stop lights until he was on the housing community side of The Inspire and his car was aimed directly at the gated opening of the parking garage.

Screeching to a halt before the gate, Nathan pulled his Puma up until he was next to a security monitor with a built in camera and keyboard.  Rolling down his window he rested his arm on the edge of the window frame and leaned out enough so the camera could scan him.  The tingle which always went through his eyes when the scanning process was performed told him the unseen electrical current was working.  In his opinion, he figured it was damaging his brain, but what was one more thing to destroy what was left of his mind.

A disembodied female voice suddenly emanated from the security monitor asking,  “State your business.”

Returning in the most bored tone he could, Nathan responded with,  “Companion 96.  I’ve been hired through the Reena Agency by BioGen for Miss…” Nathan was suddenly nonplussed.  He didn’t even remember a name being given to him.

If you enjoyed the meme, please enjoy this excerpt from my newly released novel – Sphinx United. Enjoy!SphinxUnited_Final_lacey

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.
