Did you say Giveaway?

Good Morning lovelies! 

I just thought to let you all know the GILDED FEATHERS SERIES GIVEAWAY STARTS TODAY!!! 


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

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.”




Have a fantastic day guys & dolls! I’ll be posting some reviews over the weekend for the novels I received this week!
