Back of the book

In the Shadow World, nothing is as it seems.

Detective Sydney Marr is having a very bad day. Her boss is on the warpath, she’s being treated for a werewolf bite, and her current case has hit a dead end. When her friend Erika talks Syd into going with her to Club Beam, she jumps at the chance, even if it means spending an evening without her spell arsenal. A high-class vampire bar and fetish club, Club Beam is fantasy made real.

Club owner and Dom Gideon Raines spies the red-haired beauty and is transfixed. A fight against a skillful murderer brings war for fae and vampire alike. Sometimes when you play with monsters, the monsters play back.

Inspiration and motivation:

When I first contacted Decadent Publishing to inquire about their fairy tale line I was assigned a story called “The Beam.” I looked it up and found out it was about a wizard who is bested by a woman and he exacts his revenge. Whenever I encounter a new project like this, I have to sit down and think about what all the moving parts mean. In this case, how to turn a story like this into a modern romance that readers would find appealing. Since I tend to write urban fantasy slanted pieces, I immediately laser beamed in on the wizard and witch part. I mean, how cool is that to have a ready-made story ripe for the picking? I just had to add some modern twists. What would be more modern than a witchy karaoke event and fairy tale fetish night?

The process of writing for me is an organic one. It begins with a legal pad and a series of colorful sticky notes and a foam board. I start thinking about the chapters and what needs to happen to make the story move and there you go-plot points on sticky notes I can adjust as needed. It works too. Sydney had lots of thoughts on where she wanted to go and believe me, she is still in there talking. The second book in the Shadow World series is already writing itself (think dragon shifters and a psychic) and I can see the fireworks shaping up nicely.

Stay tuned for a short story featuring Sydney in the upcoming Sci Spanks event (https://www.facebook.com/scispanks?fref=ts). You might just get invited for a session behind the Red Door. Master Gideon has a paddle and he’s ready to play.

I hope you will enjoy the introduction to my Shadow World series and return to Club Beam for many more adventures.

Excerpt:

 

“Once upon a time….” Erika sang and waggled her eyebrows. “Come on, Sydney. Live a little. This club is smoking hot, and you’ll love it.”

Sydney grumbled under her breath and watched the club-goers parade past, each dressed like a fairy-tale character. The Little Mermaid trounced by in a see-through, diaphanous gown revealing too much in the way of personal attributes. Sleeping Beauty sashayed down the sidewalk with a leash around the neck of her Prince Charming. A woman in a way-too-short Red Riding Hood outfit approached. Her arm was wrapped around a seductress dressed in wolf ears, a tail, and a skimpy thong-style bikini. Red carried a basket full of what looked like pink fuzzy handcuffs and a can of whipped cream, which she swung into Syd.

“Hey!”

The red-cloaked vixen sent her a wink and traipsed on by, joined by a near-pornographic version of the Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland. Any shorter and the skirt would show her naughty bits. Or maybe that was the plan.

Syd had just gotten off her day shift as a detective, and the last thing she wanted to do was be around more people. Especially people with more skin showing than on late-night cable shows. Her head hurt from the lights and the pulse of the music, and her stupid witch costume was pinching her toes. Erika’s scant fairy costume hugged all her curves, her breasts bursting from the bodice. The skirt barely covered her backside, and the strappy silver sandals showed off her silver-glitter nail polish.

The building loomed next to them. A giant warehouse-like structure, it was large enough to house all manner of mischief, and Syd was itching with the desire to get inside and find out just what was going on behind its doors. The sidewalk was flagged by trees lit up with twinkly white lights, adding an upscale ambiance to the area. What in the daylight looked like an industrial area gone to the dogs had been transformed into an attractive and well-attended venue.

She didn’t have the heart to tell Erika she’d been here once already today for the case she was working on, but the entrance had been sealed up tighter than a drum. Sydney’s recourse was to infiltrate Club Beam by night as a patron. Her sergeant, Debra, would kill her if she realized Syd had even considered going in without backup. So would her partner, James. Erika had asked her to come so she wouldn’t be alone, and, despite herself, Syd couldn’t resist. To catch a vampire, you had to go out at night, and Club Beam was the hot spot. After last month’s fuckup, she had to do this and do it right, even if it killed her. James was on medical leave, and it remained up to her to get this guy before someone else got killed or turned furry.

I will not think about becoming one of the terminally furry. It’s over. Move on. Take the pills the doctor gave you and freaking pray.

“Oh look. I think I see Snow White.” Erika stood on her tiptoes and craned her head along the huge expanse of line they still had to navigate to get inside.

Syd peered into the crowd and grimaced. Hairy legs. More makeup than a Mac commercial. “Nope. That was a guy in drag.”

Erika narrowed her eyes. “God, Syd. You’re the world’s biggest wet blanket ever.”

Sydney shifted her weight and moved another two steps toward the door as the line inched forward. “I told you, I’ve had a hard day. We had a homicide case come in, and I’ve been out beating the street. I want to go home and bury my head under my pillow. But, no. Out of the kindness of my heart, here I am standing in line at a vampire bar with a bunch of overgrown kids playing dress-up in fairy-tale fetish wear.”

Charles (Darkness #8)

Title:  Charles (Darkness #8)

25556292Author:  K.F. Breene

Publisher: Hazy Dawn Press, Inc. (May 16, 2015)

Pages: 144 Pages

Genre: Urban Fantasy, Contemporary Romance

Source: Amazon, Goodreads 

Rating: 5 Stars

Summary:

Charles is a guy that likes to play the field. He’s highly sought after in the Mansion, both for his prowess, and his position. He’s content to stay the playboy for life, too, steeped in the culture in which he was raised.

That is, until he finds himself on a mission with Ann, trying to figure out why shifters are mysteriously going missing. Suddenly things that were so clear cut, get muddled.

When Ann succumbs to the danger that is plaguing her kind, all bets are off.

Review:

So….I certainly aggressively tapped my screen hoping that there was a more to this book only to sadly find out that there wasnt. I am sad to see the series end but hey i get it, most good things come to an end. Now lets talk about the book: 

Other than it feeling like it was too short I absolutely LOVED this book. I loved everything about it. We get a glimpse at Sasha and Stefan one last time. We hear the outcome of Paulie, His gang and his woman. We get to see how Jonas ended up and his more caring side, though it isnt exactly considered soft but it is still a delight to see the miniscule changes in him since book one. Last but not least K.F. Breene gives us this golden little nugget full of laughs, angst, and of course full of loyalty and love. I mean it was about time Charles grew up all the way and I am glad it was with Ann. I have been waiting for those two to hook up since Ann was introduced and they started bickering.

I was pretty surprised about how the story actually went, meaning I didn’t expect KF Breene to take it in the direction that she did but i am glad that she did. There was a wicked amount of movement and action with the typical blow shit up scenes and alpha male tarzan saves jane but it was so different with Charles at the front and ready to tear things apart. In this one Stefan wasn’t the one leading the charge and for once Jonas was all silent and steely support. Other than the action…the blood exchange in this one…was hot…it completely threw me off and honestly had me fanning my face a bit. It was just earthy and almost scandalous in such a  good way. Let me just say that when Ann and Charles actually get down to business I am more than impressed and I wasn’t even there!

I wasn’t expecting everything to work out and be dandy between Stefan’s people and the shifters. I suppose that is really just my fault since I have read the series since book one but i just really enjoyed this book. TIt had nothing to do with it being bittersweet since its the last one but for me i think it had a lot to do with how light it was. I dont know really. I was just satisfied with this book as both the Charles book alone and as the end of the series. I was truly thrilled that I had stuck it out through the ups and downs of this series because at the end it was looking back at fond memories with well loved friends.

I just never thought charles would settle down and then he did but he did so in the midst of battle, guys, he had some miracle grow and had an insta-grown up moment where he stormed the castle and took his woman back and whisked her away to safety AND THEN BLEW SHIT UP! sighs…Charles definitely pulls the romantic out of me on a bad day. He is sweet, funny, hawt, super romantic, knows women and knits. He genuinely cares about his “pack” and would move the earth if he could or had to for them.

I thought that Jonas was the end of the series but this, this was perfect and I must say K.F Breene. Thank you. Thank you so much for giving us the ending we so desperately wanted. It was like you tied a cute little bow on top of this story and sent a hug to each reader. It was a great journey and for me this was the best story.

Recommendation:

 HELL YES! If you made it all the way up to Jonas DO IT! PLEASE DO IT! IF YOU HAVENT?! what are you thinking? Go read this series! Book #1 is Free on Amazon Still

Excerpt:

“You’re carrying twins, my twins, and I like this bump. I like the sight of you carrying my children in this beautiful body,” he whispered huskily as he placed both of his palms on my swollen midsection, just in time for the babes to kick him. “They can feel me,” he replied with sincerity. “I already feel them linking us together. We’re a family, and nothing and nobody will change that.”
