 Book 1 in the Sanctuary, Texas series

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Heat: Super Hot with some light BDSM elements

Bailey Ross’ world is crumbling around her. Her abusive ex, a human, is closing in on her again, and to make matters worse, a new enemy, a djinn, is stalking her. This supernatural being takes great pleasure in human pain, something Bailey has in excess thanks to her ex. If she’s caught by either, she’s as good as dead.

Backed into a corner and desperate to escape, she does something she swore wouldn’t ever be possible again –trusting a man. And he’s a vampire.

Protection via the sexy vampire Erick Thorson may prove to be a little more than she bargained for. Sparks fly between them and she finds herself agreeing to more than just protection. Though he has promised not to let anyone harm her, the small west Texas town is more than it seems and he may not be able to make good on his vow no matter how hard he tries.

Will Sanctuary be the home Bailey longs for or will she have to die to find out?

~Author Bio~ 

Lea lives in Western New York with her hubby, three children, and miscellaneous critters. Before the rug rats, she lived a life of adventure, following her husband all over Europe with the US military. She's slept in a car outside Paris, drove six hours just to see tulips in the Netherlands, and knocked ash from her shoes at Pompeii. Now she spends her time in life's adventures at soccer games, PTA meetings and school plays. Lea has loved reading from a very young age, spending many sleepless nights devouring books. Science fiction and paranormal were her favorite genres to read as a teenager, and that love bled into her adult life. She started writing during a bout of insomnia, to fill time, and found it filled a creative void. Now she communes regularly with the characters in her head and tries not to laugh out loud when they say something funny. When Lea isn't reading, writing or corralling kids, she enjoys watching movies and sciencey shows, or just kicking back and listening to some music.

Character Interview with Rose Hilah from Santuary, TX series

Name: Rose Hilah

Year Born: 3498 BC (earth calendar)

Eye Color: Brown (Iridescent swirling colors/when shifting)

Hair Color: Brunette

Favorite Color: Red

How would you describe yourself? I protect and watch. I am a mother to all who need me. I am a leader. When the Lamassu traveled between the Veil and Earth and began protecting the Sisters of Lamidae, I volunteered and have been with them ever since.

How do the residents of Sanctuary describe you? I am their Sentinel, their leader. I am kind and fair. I like to bake when I’m trying to work out a plan of action.

Most memorable moment? Settling and building the town of Sanctuary in Texas in the 1920s. We’ve lived in other towns, out in the country, hidden from the population. But Sanctuary was the first place that was truly ours completely.

What is always in your refrigerator? Cinnamon buns.

What is most important in your life? Protecting the House of Lamidae.

Do you have any phobias? I fear that Xerxes may one day find a way around everything I’ve built to protect the Sisters.

I have added a lot of my inspiration for the town of Sanctuary on my Pinterest board!  You can check it out via the below graphic to see how this town looks and feels to me.

About Monique:

 For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a boring, predictable life. I work at a low-paying job and have ho-hum missionary sex with my long-term boyfriend, who calls me “pear shaped” (and not in a good way). I’ve never been with more than one man or explored myself sexually. That’s for sexy, skinny girls. Girls with exciting lives. Girls I’m not.
When a series of events send my life into a tailspin, I find myself at a mansion in the Hollywood Hills, locking eyes with a gorgeous, sexy stranger who sends my heart racing. Our first night together is one I’ll never forget. Or the next. Shockingly, he wants to pay me lots of money just to have me as his personal sex goddess. Best of all, he’s not the only one.
Soon, I’m discovering my sexuality for the first time, caught up in the exciting, glamorous world of high-class escorting. I’m also discovering myself: the independent, sexy, confident woman I was meant to be. Trouble is, I can’t give my body without giving my heart. I’m falling in love with more than one man, and they with me. I can’t choose just one . . . Or can I?

 Long Excerpt (Beginning of Chapter One) 

His chair hit the wall with a heavy thud. He raced to the lobby. Karen Ramsey, his best friend’s wife, was hunched over her desk, her face twisted in pain. She wasn’t due for two weeks. Apparently the baby was calling an audible.he sound of a woman screaming in agony was not what Trevor MacLaughlin expected to hear on a quiet Tuesday morning at the office.

What the hell am I supposed to do now?

He ran to Karen’s side. She grabbed his hand, squeezing it hard enough to cut off his circulation and pop a few joints.

“Karen?”

She sucked in a few more breaths and wheezed, gradually releasing her death-grip on his hand. He flexed it, popping his knuckles back into alignment. Damn, she was strong.

“I thought they were just Braxton Hicks last night, bu—”

He winced. Her fingers clamped down hard and another wail filled the small office.

The growling scream tapered off and she glanced up, meeting his gaze. “I guess I was wrong,” she finished, so matter-of-factly, like she hadn’t just been screaming bloody murder.

“Braxton what?” he asked without thinking.

“Oh don’t worry, just get my bag out of the coat closet. I need a ride to the hospital.”

He stared. His brain hadn’t quite caught up with the situation. He’d known Karen for years and she never complained about anything. All the MacLaughlin brothers had watched over her during the pregnancy. Logan, her husband, had been deployed when she was twelve weeks along.

They’d brought her food everyday. Drove her to and from work and coddled her in every way they could devise. They discovered early, if they kept her fed and pampered she purred like a kitten 24/7. Even their mom and sister teased them about doting on her too much. But in their eyes, Karen was just an extension of the family and she’d kept MacLaughlin Corp. running smoothly for the past six years.

“Trevor! Now!”

Her snarl snapped him out of his daze.

“Unless you’d rather deliver this baby yourself?”

“No, ma’am.” He moved swiftly to the closet, retrieved her overnight bag, and was back at her side in seconds.

He walked her slowly out to his big dually pick-up, parked in the front lot, lifted her up, and placed her gently into the passenger seat. After clipping her seatbelt into place, he hurried around the truck and climbed in next to her.

They weren’t far from the hospital. Ten minutes and three contractions later, he whisked her through the sliding emergency room door.

“Call my mother before you come into the delivery room,” she hollered as the nurses wheeled her down the hallway.

“Into the…Karen,” he gulped. “I don’t know if—”

“You call my mom, Trevor MacLaughlin and get your ass in here with me until she arrives. I’m not doing this alone!”

DIANA

An earthy smell tickled my nose and I took a deep breath. The fire inside me burned hotter and my sex throbbed. The scent was distinctly male and I wanted nothing more than to have it all over me. My body was practically begging to be used.

He appeared in the doorway a moment later, carrying a silver tray with some covered dishes. “Hungry?” He took a step forward and then stopped. His nostrils flared and his eyes glowed yellow.

“What’s wrong with your eyes?”

He shook his head and the glow faded, his eyes returned to a natural shade of brown. “Sorry, I … you—” He took a deep breath and started again. “I wasn’t prepared for my wolf’s reaction to you. I apologize.”

Addison Connelly has given up on men. She is disappointed yet again when her best friend tries to play matchmaker, and the match falls flat…or does it? Her friend knows all Addison needs is a chance, a little hope, and maybe a dropkick in the right direction. With an extra push from Aphrodite, will this lonely soul learn to trust again? Or will she run from the only man who could make her happy?

Adrian Colter, Nashville Police Detective and certifiable bachelor, puts his foot in his mouth in a big way when his roommate’s fiancé tries to match him up with her best friend. After making a horrible first impression, can he earn the trust of a woman who won’t speak a civil word to him?

Adrian isn’t the only one trying to earn the trust of a beautiful woman. While Ares fights to rebuild the trust he lost thousands of years ago with the Goddess of Love, his parents do what they do best —show off their greed and selfishness. Will he find the hope and forgiveness he so desperate seeks or will his parents destroy his chance at happiness?
