Series Synopsis – Gilded Feathers

I was asked recently to put together a series synopsis for my Gilded Feathers series – so I did, and I thought I would share!! 

GILDED FEATHERS SERIES SYNOPSIS:

When university student Cole Evans realizes the secrets hidden in the horrifying illusions of her slumber, she is faced with alluring choices and fantastical revelations. Drawn to the dark and untamed Drex and his true Guardian identity, she finds herself in the middle of an obscure fantasy and a dangerously bizarre reality. And the converging of two separate worlds. 

Across this four novel series, Cole and Drex, along with their friends Chloe and Jayde, Tommy and Heychex, struggle with the balance of danger and guilt, desire and temptation. And the impossible, devastating and profound realities at the heart of entangled passions. Fate is illuminated. An altering course is imagined. And fears and dreams, loss and love converge into a symphony of spectacular gilded feathers.

Excerpt from Infinitely Gilded, book 4:

I let out a sigh and turned to ask Dash about this afternoon when I found my lips pressed against his. His warm palm cupped my cheek tenderly and I felt myself melting. I distantly heard the retort and protest in my mind but I shooed them away giving in to the passion. I admitted to myself I wanted the taste of his lips on mine, drowning in ecstasy. I bit back the whimper that wanted to escape when he pulled back slightly, catching his breath.

“You don’t play fair,” I breathed.

“No, I don’t. Not when it comes to something I want. Not when it comes to you.” He stared into my eyes and I wanted to cling to him and never let go…

…I could do nothing but play along with the charade while I looked at him and silently asked how far do I have to go to get to you? Hoping I wasn’t making a permanent pronouncement on temporary emotion I knew patience was what I needed but right now it felt like the enemy. A part of me was drawn to him but a part of me resisted. And the resistance was what continued to push me through. I wanted to grab his face and scream at him – why? Slowly I could feel my shattered soul wandering back to me. It was testing its old stomping grounds and satisfied, fell into its original spot. Almost like a test drive, it shifted around in its seat, adjusting the mirrors, pressing a few buttons adjusting the radio and taking it for a spin. ‘It feels the same,’ my soul concluded. ‘Maybe a little more battered and bruised – definitely a fixer upper but it will do.’ And before the warmth of his mouth left mine, the mingling of our breaths becoming separate again I allowed that silly dreamer who still resided within me a fleeting glimpse of forever.      

*Also! I have redesigned my author website so head on over and take a look! http://caesarsandstraws.com/home.html

EXCERPT – GILDED FEATHERS, BOOK 1:

I stood dumbstruck standing in the doorway – a vehemence of emotions racketing through me. The words human girl flashed on repeat behind my eyes – my knees felt weak as I gripped the cool surface of the counter top beside me. “I am done with this conversation, whatever it is that is brewing, let it. I’m going back to bed.” He let out a frustrated growl and put his phone in his pocket. His back still toward me, he swiped his hands over his face as I took in his bare chest and feet, clad only in jeans. I moved robotically, stealthily through the screen door. He turned around to find me standing on the small deck, a look of horror stilled on his face. I looked down his bare upper body out of habit and noticed the heart of his tattoo was luminous in a deep red. My eyes stayed on this spot until I dragged them back up to meet his.

“I think it’s time you tell me where you went.”

Anyways! enough of the shameless self promotion; a big day ahead of me throwing in the final edits for GILDED PROMISE, book 3 in the GILDED FEATHERS SERIES! ahhh!!! I’m sure in an hour I’ll be drowning in my editor’s pink sticky notes as I attempt to uncross my eyes. 

P.S. that chocolate cake is the devil – still tempting me from yesterday. 

PSST! I JUST HEARD ABOUT THE GILDED FEATHERS SERIES PROMOTIONAL PRICING

So apparently my daughter didn’t get the memo about daylight savings time, so I’m sitting here attempting to uncross my eyes out of exhaustion over my third cup of green tea and promptly ignoring the scrumptious chocolate fudge cake that keeps beckoning me with delicious promises! 

Anyways I thought I’d throw out a short teaser for Gilded Faith, book 2 and also announce PROMOTIONAL PRICING!! everyone loves promotional pricing! Staring tomorrow PROMOTIONAL PRICING will be as follows:

GILDED FEATHERS: $0.99 (OMG are you serious? – indeed my friend, it is true!) 

GILDED FAITH: $2.99 (no way, I don’t believe it! – believe young reader, believe…)

TEASER GILDED FAITH, BOOK 2:

It was ecstasy, rapture; a paradise I never even knew existed before his touch, his possession. It was combustion, a fantastical explosion of fireworks that carried me away from all reality.

GILDED FAITH, BOOK 2

TEASER:

Her long, thick black lashes fanned over the sheer golden veil that covered the lower half of her face every time she fluttered her eyelids. Her sultry eyes continued to scan the room searching for her prey as she sat back leisurely against the vibrantly coloured pillows behind her. A crowd of men, a group of mixed species with greedy eyes moved in front of her pedestal, gawking, eating her hungrily with their male presence hoping to be the one chosen.

Gilded Feathers book 1, Gilded Faith book 2 available now on Amazon

An alluring choice.  A fantastical revelation. But what if it changed… everything?

 

Familiar with the art of the nightmare, twenty-two year old university student Cole Evans can’t help but feel a deep connection to the horrifying illusions of her slumber.  

Irrevocably drawn to obscure fantasy, Cole faces a defiant temptation of romance and her first encounter with the mysterious Drex. Covered in tattoos, she unexpectedly finds herself attracted to his dark magnetism and emerald eyes. Before her life takes an impossible turn.   

Uncovering Drex’s true Guardian identity, she is forced on a terrifying journey through the stars into his world – one that brilliantly weaves together the struggle of danger and desire. And the impossible reality of gilded feathers.
