Falling Leaves

Autumn’s Harvest Blog Hop Nov 9th -12th

Leaves crunched under her feet as she approached the wood cabin by the moonlight. The light in the window her only evidence someone was inside. Waiting for her.

A chill ripped through the clearing swirling wood smoke around her. If she wasn’t here for business, she would love to sit next to a roaring fire with a glass of wine and a good book. She hugged her long jacket closer. Thoughts of a what her evening could possible be, broke as the front door swung inward. the tall man stood just inside the threshold with only  a blue towel wrapped around his waist.

He ran hand through his hair and over his short trim bread. “Thanks for coming so quickly.”

“It’s a little far from the parking area, at first I thought I was heading the wrong way.”

He smiled as he stepped onto the porch. “What can I say, I’m partial to being a hermit.”

“At least you can see the stars through the bare trees.” She made her way up the steps. “Hi, I’m Sarah.”

“Sarah, I’m Anthony.” He smiled, his fangs lengthening. “It’s been a week since I last fed.”

Sarah breathed deeply. “Don’t you have a steady blood supply shipped to you?”

“Yes, but they seem to have forgotten all about me.” Anthony said.

“I have a cooler full of blood.” Sarah said she raised the blue cooler in her hand.

He nodded. “Could I beg you, for a warm supply.”

Sarah knew she should say no, but being out here alone in this rustic setting did something to her libido…

Come back tomorrow to read the rest of Sarah’s story.

The perfect autumn weather reminded me of how I love to take a walk in the moonlight on a brisk autumn evening smelling the wood smoke through the air. Of course, it won’t be a perfect story without a little bit of fang. 🙂

Here is a teaser of my newest Release: Intoxication: Addicted to Fang Book 1

Addicted to Fang: Intoxicaiton by Dena de Paulo

Available at Ravenous Romance!

Blurb: Telepath and succubus-in-training Ella Hustad’s fate changes the day she discovers her survival hinges on the slip of a vampire’s fang. It’s a sensation that both terrifies her and excites. Accepting Dominic Sebastian, the vampire governor of the eastern quadrant, as her savior might work for her body but she’s not sure if the rest of her is up to the challenge. His blissfully silent mind, his metallic gaze and the feel of his fangs is all she’ll ever need… but is it what she wants?

While on the hunt to save an unregistered active blood benefactor, Dominic falls under the hypnotic charm of Ella’s blood. But that’s not the only attraction. Desire, explosive and unrestrained, forges an unexpected bond between them. When another vampire wants Ella dead, Dominic must find a way to protect her or risk losing the one woman who can satisfy all of his fantasies.

Available at:
Amazon, Barnes and Noble, All Romance Ebooks, Ravenous Romance

    Thanks for the giveaway! I prefer spring to fall, but I love the colorful leaves of autumn as well as the knowledge that the holiday season is approaching.

    It’s hard to say what exactly would be my Go-To Autumn Romance book. When I think real hard about it, I would have to say it has a sexy, strong, determined male that when it comes to love is just lost. Then there has to be a woman who is usually in need of help or needs to know what love and family is. Together they heal each other and love turns out to be their greatest gift. I also love a happy ending at this time of year, usually where the epilogue has them starting their own family to love and cherish. Oh….and definitely HOT loving too!

    Autumn is by far my favorite month…The sights, smells, sounds (especially crunching leaves underfoot), tastes, and touch (of the cool air). I especially love the fact that it’s “sweater weather.” I am the QUEEN of sweater twin sets.
