Blurb:



This novella is intended for Mature audiences only. There are scenes not suitable for readers under the age of 18.

Thread One, Adina Falling, is the first novella in the Threads of Fate Series.

Best-selling erotica author, Adina LaCroix lives a fairly charmed, normal life. Born a Vampire , Adina is forever 21. She is successful, beautiful and wealthy, the envy of women and the object of desire for men. Her days are occupied with more human pursuits such as writing and avoiding unwanted phone calls from her publisher and her mother. With nightfall, however, her Vampire nature takes over and her hunt for blood and sex consume her.

Wanting to keep her conscience clean, she refuses to kill her prey, usually men with dark secrets. Instead, she uses the gift of mind control to implant permanent fears into her victim’s minds, ones so horrific that they will live in fear of death if they continue their evil ways. It was her way of doing the world a favor.

After her divorce from Michael Diamante, one of the most power-hungry and evil vampires in the world, Adina has remained single. Threats of permanent death from Michael have made her hesitant to find a mate. However, rumors have begun circulating around plans the Elders, the governing body of Vampires, have in store for her.

Plagued by a recurring nightmare, Adina begins a quest for answers. The only problem, instead of finding what she has been looking for; Adina is faced with more questions. Questions in the form of two men, Caleb Locke and Xander Stark.

One man holds promises of undying love and passion while the other holds the key to unlocking her secrets, and maybe even her heart.                                                                  
Excerpt:


Downtown Birmingham was the happening place tonight. Full of sex, desperation and alcohol. Not a good combination for mortals but a succulent feast for vampires. I could sense that I was the only vampire in the city, at the moment. Most of my friends were hanging out in Detroit. They didn’t want to venture into the “burbs” this evening. No reason to really. So, I was soloing it this evening.



I only preyed on men while many of my kind were indiscriminate. I went after cheaters and criminals, it was the least I could do to aid society. Savory characters, in more ways than one. Men with hidden agendas and dirty secrets. Like the one I was stalking tonight. These were the ideal quarry.



Walking a little further, I felt him. Stronger. His thoughts. His essence. I knew I was getting closer to him. I shuddered again, anticipation rolling down my spine. I probed his mind and for a moment, I actually felt sorry for his wife. He was a prick, without a doubt. His character didn’t matter to me, I wouldn’t be with him for the long haul. I was simply going to use him to meet my needs, however temporarily long that would take.

Without realizing it, I had stopped in my tracks. I had arrived. Looking up at the awning, I realized I was finally at my destination. Effortlessly pulling open the heavy door, I walked down the stairs propelled by the heavy masculine pheromones beckoning me. Taunting me. Teasing me by mixing itself with flowers and spices. I felt a tugging in my sex, a desire I couldn’t wait to drown in.
       
Guest Post:
Back in 2009, I was flying home from California where I was brought in as a guest on the Dr. Phil show. During this five-hour flight, I had a gross glass of red wine that tasted like cardboard. But, it didn’t stop me from finishing it, it calmed my jittery nerves…I’m not a good flyer.





Suddenly, an idea was born. I blame it on the gross wine.



Well, more along the lines of the birth of a character.



Adina, my Jewish vampire. I originally wrote about her on my blog, Rock and Drool, where it had been released in two parts. The original story can be found <a href="http://www.rockanddrool.com/2009/09/24/its-not-titled-yet-so-ill-leave-that-to-your-imaginations/" title="part 1 original adina" target="_blank">here</a> and <a href="http://www.rockanddrool.com/2009/09/28/chapt-2-for-the-still-untitled-vampire-story/" title="part 2 adina original" target="_blank">here</a>.

Well, for the past few years, Adina has been bugging me to finish her story. Yeah, she's a persistent one, that Adina and ‘bugging’ is a complimentary word. She was incessantly nagging me to finish her story, to let her find a man or two…or three. The problem was, I didn't know what to do with her. To me, she was fabulous and I wanted to give her an equally fabulous story to live in.



It happened! Finally. I have no clue how but I'm not going to worry about that. And now, she’s not nearly as annoying, I think she’s probably relieved and is out feeding and drinking wine.



So, when the kids headed back to school after a veeerrryyyyy long summer break, I started writing. And, this story started pouring out onto the screen. Sure, I did a bit of plotting but I allowed the character, Adina, to lead. Really, she gave me no choice, she’s bossy.



Adina is now part of a series called Threads of Fate. Her first book, a novella that is a bit over 100 pages, is called <a href="http://bit.ly/1eZnGxF" title="adina falling" target="_blank">Adina Falling</a>. And guess what? It is available on Amazon but for a limited time.

So, there is quite a bit of sex in this book and it is not intended for anyone younger than 18. One scene, I blushed and giggled my way through. Thankfully, it didn't translate into the scene, unless my Beta Readers were humoring me.



I'm currently working on the second thread (or book, as some like to call them) which will be called Adina Rising. I'm hoping for an early December release.



I stink at writing blurbs. They come out sounding like awful book reports that I had to write when I was in school. But, I'm sharing it anyway:
