Together they are fire and magic…destiny.

talldarkapocolyptic_USA TODAY

Apart they are pain and death…apocalyptic. Together they are fire and magic…destiny.

He’s a warrior, a bounty hunter in a world turned upside down. She’s his latest bounty…a creature of dark power. As everything in their world implodes, they must work together to set it right, while the fire burning between them threatens to consume everything in its path.

 

5 stars! Deb Thomas – Beta Reader/Reviewer:  “Sam Cheever has created a world full of death, hope and love. This story pulls you and has you rooting for the good guys and some of the bad guys too. I really enjoyed this story. I would love to read more about the twenty worlds.”

 

He skimmed a hand over her ribs, pushing the rumpled sheet down with it. Her belly jumped in anticipation as his hand covered the smooth mound at the vee of her thighs and she moaned softly, arching her hips to press into his touch.

Audie lifted his head, his dark gaze swimming with lust. “I’ve waited so long to be inside you.”

Yeira gasped as he slid a finger along the moist crease of her mons. “Don’t wait any longer, Hunter. I need…” She swallowed hard as the finger thrust inside.

He kissed a trail up her throat, leaving tingling awareness behind. “You need what, Beauty?”

A second finger joined the first, rasping deliciously along her nerve endings and sending tremors of bliss through her belly. “I need you…inside me. Now,” she gasped.

Audie was suddenly between her legs, braced on his elbows, and his hands slipping through the sleep-tangled locks of her hair.

Yeira pressed her moist mons against the hard column of his cock and wrapped her legs around him, opening herself for his invasion.

Audie cupped her buttocks, pulling her lower body off the mattress. “For once we are in accord, woman.” He positioned the thick head of his cock against her entrance. You need me inside you…”

He drove deep and Yeira cried out, gasping from the exquisite fullness. “And I really need to be there.”

Yeira clasped his head and pulled him down for a kiss. “Make love to me, Kord.”

Fun and Sexy Contemporary Cowboy Romance – Book 6: Honeybun Heat Series

honeybunataduderanch-500

 

She’s hiding from a psychopath. He’s hiding from life. Will they survive to find love?

Depressed by injuries that have sidelined his career, Heathcliffe Honeybun heads to a Dude Ranch for some “alone” time. But the ranch’s pretty activities director isn’t about to let him mope. And if her charms don’t keep him interested, Nita’s dark and dangerous past most certainly will. Especially when it looks like Heathcliffe has a killer’s target on his back.

 

4.5 Stars – Reviewer Top Pick! “This was another Honeybun story that had it all, suspense and sexuality and a great mixture of action, humor, and off –the-charts chemistry. This is another example as to why Sam Cheever is on my must-read list.”
~ PaulineMichael Night Owl Reviews

 

“It’s too soft.”

“Sticky?”

“Yeah.”

“Put your hand here…” Nita wrapped her fingers around his wrist and guided him. “Ahh. Okay. Try that.”

Heathcliffe kneaded the silky globe between his fingers. “Yeah. That’s better.”

Nita slipped a fingertip between her lips, her eyes going closed with pleasure. “Perfect.” Opening her eyes she looked at him and laughed. “Your nose is white.”

“It itched. I had to scratch.”

Nita grabbed her towel and stepped closer. “Here, let me get it.” She reached up and wiped flour off his nose. “Better?” Her voice had grown husky, her body melting toward his of its own volition.

“Much.” His dark blue gaze held hers as awareness spun between them, seeming to vibrate on the air. Nita knew she should step away, put distance between them, but it had been so long since she’d felt the things Heathcliffe was churning up in her and she wasn’t in any hurry to end the moment.

He grabbed her wrist as she started to lower her arm. “You have some honey…” His tongue came out and slipped across the inside of her wrist, sending frissons of delight spearing through her. Her stomach jumped, her nipples peaked under her soft shirt, and her thighs tightened.

Nita’s lips parted and a helpless sound of pleasure emerged. Heathcliffe tugged on her wrist, wrapping an arm around her waist as she fell against him.

“I haven’t tasted the muffin batter yet.”

She licked her lips. “Oh” What a strange time to ask for a taste of her… Oh!

His lips lowered, claimed hers, and his tongue swept along the seam, pushing past the weak barrier of her trembling lips to steal a taste. He wrapped both arms around her waist and lifted her, effortlessly so he could deepen the kiss.

Nita’s hands slipped over his shoulders to his throat. Her thumbs caressed the muscular column and rose, to touch his square, bristled chin.

Heathcliffe groaned softly, settling her bottom on the island and moving to stand between her legs. He held her tight, tilting his head to deepen the kiss further, and ran his hands down her back and over her hips, skimming them along her thighs.

Nita broke the kiss and nibbled his bottom lip, moaning. “Oh, god. We need to stop or this is gonna become public sex in a big way.”

Heathcliffe licked her cheek. “Mmm, brown sugar.”

She laughed. “We’re both probably covered in flour and other stuff.”

“Kinky.”

She shoved against his chest. “Help me down from here. You need to behave now. I have to get these things in the oven and start my work or I’ll never catch up.”

Heathcliffe grabbed her hands, lifted them to his mouth and licked each palm, closing his eyes. “Delicious.”

She giggled. “Flour? You have strange taste, Honeybun.”

“No flour. I think that’s all on the ass of my jeans. This is pure Nita. Sweet and spicy.”

She fought the pleasure sweeping through her at his words. “Honeybun!”

His grin was incorrigible. “Not until you tell me you’ve been de-stressed.”

She leaned in, kissed his irresistible, smiling lips. “I am most definitely sans stress.” Picking a lump of dough from his pretty auburn curls, she added, “Thank you. This was exactly what I needed.”

“You’re welcome.” He lifted her down. “Now how much longer do I have to kneed this bread? I’m getting tired of her. In fact, I think I’m ready to see other breads.”

Nita giggled again. “You’re a nut, Honeybun.”

NEW RELEASE – Tall, Dark and Apocalyptic – Dark Paranormal Romance

talldarkapocolyptic_USA TODAY

Apart they are pain and death…apocalyptic. Together they are fire and magic…destiny.

He’s a warrior, a bounty hunter in a world turned upside down. She’s his latest bounty…a creature of dark power. As everything in their world implodes, they must work together to set it right, while the fire burning between them threatens to consume everything in its path.

 

I Am, Indeed – 4 Moons:  ” Engrossing and detailed with plenty of twists, this was a fun read with a solid love conquers all things message.”

 

The soft, peppery aroma of poivron wood scented the air and Yeira worried she was under its influence.

The hunter seemed unaffected by the pheromone-like smoke. He stood between her and the fire, the snapping flames a perfect backdrop for his sizzling physique. His dark-blue gaze held hers as she approached, unwavering.

Yeira couldn’t read his expression. Would he welcome her touch? Was he interested in making love? The thick appendage at his groin didn’t count as evidence of his mood. He’d been sporting that for hours.

Moving toward him as if transfixed, Yeira stopped mere inches away. She dug her feet into the soft earth and swayed toward him, unabashedly wanton. Her head swam. Her pussy tightened under a wave of sheer lust. Her vision locked on his sexy mouth.

The hunter consumed her with his gaze, watching her from beneath a thick arc of lashes. The flames of the fire flickered in his dark eyes. Audie Kord looked like a man who knew exactly what he wanted and was certain of getting it.

In that moment, when Yeira’s pussy convulsed with raging need, her nipples jutted against her soaked shirt, and lust tightened into a painful knot in her belly, she thought he might just be right.

It would take a monumental effort of will for her to resist his charms.

He lifted the flower and she looked at it, blinking. She’d already forgotten why she’d moved closer. In a desperate attempt to save herself, Yeira frowned. “You don’t need me to do that, hunter.”

“But it feels so much better coming from you.”

She shook her head, trying to clear it.

“Yeira?”

She looked up, catching his smoldering gaze. Big mistake. She sucked in a gasp and closed her eyes, her body swaying closer.

Heat enveloped her, filled with his distinctive scent, and Yeira imagined that he’d stepped closer. Something soft slipped across her cheek and her eyes snapped open. He held a large, velvety petal of the poivron flower between two, thick fingers and was sliding it over her skin. When she looked at him he was smiling.

Heated liquid slipped down her thigh at the sight. She was so hot…so needy…that even the slow curve of his mouth had her licking her lips in anticipation of tasting him.

The hunter tilted his head, dragging the petal down her throat and over the soaked and nearly transparent fabric of her shirt. She gulped as he slid the peppery petal over her nipple. It didn’t seem possible but somehow the hard little nub tightened and grew.

Her chest hurt and she realized she’d been holding her breath.

“You’re not wearing anything under that shirt.” His voice deepened a few octaves and caught on the last word, filled with wonder.

Yeira shook her head. “I don’t wear anything that might impede my movements.”

His gaze widened slightly and then did a slow perusal down her body, stopping where her thighs met in a throbbing, heated vee.

She swallowed hard, easily reading his thoughts. He was speculating about whether she wore panties. Terrified he would ask, she opened her mouth and spoke without thinking. “Give me that flower.” She immediately regretted the words but couldn’t take them back without embarrassing herself further.

His big hand lifted and opened. The slightly crushed flower lay in his palm.

Yeira grabbed it up, her fingertips scraping across the slightly roughened skin of his palm. The touch jolted through her like lightning and she tightened her thighs on a wave of lust.

Honeybun at a Dude Ranch – Book 6: Honeybun Heat Series – Sexy Romantic Suspense

honeybunataduderanch-500

 

She’s hiding from a psychopath. He’s hiding from life. Will they survive to find love?

Depressed by injuries that have sidelined his career, Heathcliffe Honeybun heads to a Dude Ranch for some “alone” time. But the ranch’s pretty activities director isn’t about to let him mope. And if her charms don’t keep him interested, Nita’s dark and dangerous past most certainly will. Especially when it looks like Heathcliffe has a killer’s target on his back.

 

5 Stars and a Reviewer Top Pick at Romance Reviews!  ” HONEYBUN AT A DUDE RANCH is extremely hilarious, romantic and well written; this is truly one of my favorite reads. It’s something that I wouldn’t mind reading over and over again. Page-turning and unputdownable!
~ CozyReader at Romance Reviews

 

“Who are you talking to?”

Heathcliffe turned and found Nita standing outside shivering. He ushered her back into the cabin and closed the door. “What is it with you and going outside without gloves and a coat?”

She frowned. “You aren’t wearing gloves or a coat.”

“That’s different, I’m a big strong man. You’re a tender, susceptible woman.”

Nita looked as if she might hit him, then, amazingly, she laughed. “Why do I feel the urge to arm wrestle with you right now?”

Heathcliffe grinned, glad she appeared to be getting her sea legs back under her. He stepped closer, skimming a bright strand of hair behind her ear. “You wouldn’t have a chance.”

Nita swayed toward him. “I think I could take you.”

He lowered his head. “Really?”

She lifted up on her tiptoes, placing her hands on his chest. “Uh hmm.”

Heathcliffe cupped her pale face in his hands, skimming a thumb over the velvet skin of her cheek. “You’re on. But first I need to do something.”

 

 

His lips touched hers, Nita inhaled his scent, quickly becoming intoxicated by it. Heathcliffe’s hands slipped around her waist, resting gently on her hips. He didn’t draw her in, didn’t rush the kiss. Nita relished the slow movement of his lips against hers, her system thrumming with excitement from the gentle touch.

Awareness brought her body alive, heated her skin and softened her muscles until she couldn’t help swaying toward him. Heathcliffe deepened the kiss, his hands slipping around to pull her in, branding the skin beneath her clothes.

Lust coiled in her belly. Desire swirled in her breast. But more importantly, her self-imposed isolation slipped away in the face of his talented touch. The months of solitude and fear slid to the background of her mind.

She slipped her hands into the back pockets of his jeans and pressed her belly against the ridge of desire growing between them. In response, Heathcliffe took their kiss to the next level, driving his tongue between her lips.

His taste exploded against her tongue. Nita made a helpless little sound of need in her throat, shocked at the strength of his effect on her. She’d held herself away from men for so long. Even before she and Max divorced, she’d been afraid to talk to other men…terrified someone would smile at her, or touch her hand in conversation. God forbid they’d flirt with her.

The hell she suffered afterward just wasn’t worth the risk.

And since people had started to die—well—Nita didn’t dare reach out for companionship.

It suddenly hit her. She was pretty much signing Heathcliffe’s death warrant just by being in his cabin. If she was seen kissing him…

Nita dragged herself out of his arms. “We can’t do this, I’m sorry. I can’t willingly put you in danger.” All of the pleasure she’d been feeling was swept away on a wave of terror for him. She grabbed his hand. “You need to leave. Please? Leave now, tonight. Go back to Indy and be with your family so you’ll be safe.”

Heathcliffe touched her chin but she jerked her face away. “Nita, I’m not going anywhere. My brothers are coming tomorrow. We can handle this.”

She shook her head, tears flowing down her cheeks. Shivering violently she paced away from him. “You don’t understand.” Nausea roiled in her stomach and she had to stop pacing. She dropped onto the couch, breaking into a cold sweat.

Nita twined her arms around her stomach and started rocking. “He’ll kill you.” Her voice came out in a husky whisper, strangled by terror and tears.

The couch cushion dipped as Heathcliffe settled his long, warm body next to her, wrapping her in the throw from the back of the couch. “It’s going to be fine, Nita. I promise.”

He pulled her close, enfolding her in his arms.

Nita shook her head. “You shouldn’t promise. It will be a lie.” But she couldn’t quite bring herself to pull away from the heat and comfort of having him draped around her.

She couldn’t quite force herself to stand alone again. She was so tired of standing alone.

Tall, Dark and Apocalyptic – Sexy Dark Paranormal Romance

talldarkapocolyptic_USA TODAY

Apart they are pain and death…apocalyptic. Together they are fire and magic…destiny.

He’s a warrior, a bounty hunter in a world turned upside down. She’s his latest bounty…a creature of dark power. As everything in their world implodes, they must work together to set it right, while the fire burning between them threatens to consume everything in its path.

 

Booked Solid With Virginia C: “Tall, Dark & Apocalyptic is an involving adventure, a passionate love story, and a fascinating look into a fantasy-fueled future world.” 

Yeira stopped beside a sparkling, blue creek that wound across one end of the strange forest. “We can rest here.”

Audie looked skyward as a new round of frustrated shrieking sounded. The vultures circled high above the softly swaying branches of the droopy trees, their eerie red gazes hopefully scouring the ground. “We need to find shelter. It’s only a matter of time before they come in here after us.”

Yeira crouched beside the creek, cupping her hands and filling them with the clear blue water. She took a drink and splashed it over her face. “They won’t come in here. The marauders don’t like poivron trees.”

Audie looked at his arms. The bloody gashes hurt like hell but they weren’t bubbling and seething like his face the last time he bumped up against the disgusting birds. “You sure that water’s safe?”

Yeira looked at him, her bright blue gaze sliding over his wounds. “The reborn cleaned the poisons from this wood and coated it with cloaking magics. It’s protected and safe.” She looked around, a slight frown on her face. “For a while anyway. With the nest gone I feel the magic waning.”

Audie followed her lead and crouched beside the creek, submerging his hands and dousing his wounds with the cool, clean water. It stung but seemed a better alternative than infection.

Yeira disappeared and came back a moment later holding one of the fat, white flowers. “Here, give me your arms.”

“Why?”

Her gaze snapped with temper. “Seriously? You don’t trust me yet?”

He did trust her. Against his better judgment. But Audie wasn’t about to admit that. He shrugged. “Simmer down, woman. It was a simple question.”

She shook her head, clearly disgusted with him. “The poivron flower has great healing properties.” Yeira dug her fingertips into the flower’s center and ripped it in half. A thick gel oozed out of the orange middle and a sharp, peppery scent thickened on the air.

She dipped her fingers into the gel and reached for his arm. “This might sting a little.”

Her soft, tapered fingers slid over the ragged, red scratches on his forearms, gentle but firm. The gel went on cool but quickly heated on his skin, so much so that Audie grimaced from the heat. “You sure this is a good idea? It feels like it’s burning me.”

Her response was to dip her fingers again. “Give me your other arm.”

Audie held her determined gaze for a moment and then reluctantly did as she asked. A small smile curved her lips as she observed his reluctance. “Don’t be such a big baby.”

Audie’s irritation with her spiked, but her soft fingers rubbing his torn skin soothed it quickly away. Somehow the heat from the gel she was applying had moved south, causing a secondary fire in his groin.

“Take off your pants.”

Audie blinked, his eyes widening as he realized she was serious. “Um, I don’t think…”

She gave an exasperated sigh. “Don’t worry, hunter, your virtue is safe with me. Those need tending to.” She jerked her head to indicate the deep gouges on his thigh.

“It’s okay. I’ll deal with them later.”

“No. The vulture’s claws aren’t poisonous like their saliva, but they’re hotbeds of disease. If we don’t cleanse and medicate those gouges right away you’ll get a raging infection and might even lose your leg.”

Audie swallowed hard. “Give me the flower, I can do it.” The heat in his groin flared and his cock thickened, jerking under the sticky leather pants. How did he warn her that he was commando under the leather?

“I swear to god, I’ve never seen such a baby. I promise I won’t look at you.”

Irritation flared again and Audie gave her a mean smile. “Okay, but don’t say I didn’t warn you.” Audie shoved to his feet and reached for the band of his pants, tugging the fastener open. With his gaze fixed on Yeira’s so he could watch her reaction, he dragged his battle pants over his hips and down his thighs.

Her pretty gaze widened. She sucked in a breath as his rock-hard cock popped free, dancing on the air between them.

Yeira licked her lips, murmuring, “Good god in heaven.”

Audie lifted an eyebrow. “I tried to warn you.”

“Shut up, Hunter.” She swallowed visibly, her gaze never wavering from his cock. “Just shut the hell up.” Her delicate fingers twitched as if she wanted to reach across the space and touch him. Suddenly Audie wanted that too.

Brand New Release — Tall, Dark and Apocalyptic — Fiery Post-Apocalyptic Romance!

A hero is strong. He’s kind and sometimes ruthless. He’s protective of those who need to be safeguarded and, though he can be very tough, he’s also extremely fair. By definition a hero is larger than life…someone who goes above and beyond what most of us would do.

In romance fiction a hero is all of these things. He’s also a strong jaw, a muscular pair of arms, a broad chest, and a cut pair of abs. He’s sexy because of his strength as well as his physical attributes. So how do you take a romance hero to the next level?

Drop him into an apocalyptic world.

In a world plunged into chaos, where there are no rules to influence his actions…no guidelines for how to live…an apocalyptic hero unerringly finds his way along the right path even as his domain explodes around him.

Great physical strength, a finely tuned sense of right and wrong, and a soft heart hidden beneath a rock hard exterior…these attributes have even more significance in a deadly environment where it would be oh so easy to take the wrong course. Worse, in a world where everyone is fighting to survive, it’s a constant battle not to abuse power, succumbing to greed, hate, and selfishness. The true hero…the one with his moral compass firmly tuned toward North…is not only easy to love. He’s impossible to resist.

My hero, Audie Kord, in the soon to be released Tall, Dark & Apocalyptic, is just such a man. I can’t wait to share him with you!

 

 

 

talldarkapocalyptic3DA grand passion in an apocalyptic world. A love beyond reason and without boundaries.

He’s a warrior, a bounty hunter in a world turned upside down. She’s a target, a creature of dark magic. His job is simple. Kill the target. Her goal is more complex. She must stay alive until she finds and destroys the source of death magic staining the twenty worlds. But the passion burning within them may be their undoing. It’s going to take an apocalyptic will to overcome the distraction their bodies are creating…and not lose themselves in the process.

Booked Solid With Virginia C: “Tall, Dark & Apocalyptic is an involving adventure, a passionate love story, and a fascinating look into a fantasy-fueled future world.” 

~~*~~

Yeira screamed as the delicious invasion sent her past the point of return. “I’m…” She screamed again as wave after wave of pleasure assaulted her…spinning her thoughts into formless creatures. Overwhelmed by a fireworks display of sensations repeatedly pelting her awareness, Yeira’s muscles tightened and the knot in her belly opened like a flower, letting the bliss it had been hoarding flow like lava through her unresisting body.

She barely hit the bottom of her orgasm before Audie had her in his arms. He carried her a few feet and lay her on the bed of leaves, covering her with his big body and clasping her hands in his, holding them above her head. Her knees opened of their own accord and she shimmied, trying to get his lovely cock between her legs.

But the hunter held her gaze, his face tense with need. His navy-blue gaze was serious, intense. “Are you sure, Yeira? I’ll suffer no regrets from our joining. I want you in my core. But I won’t do this if you aren’t certain.”

Yeira looked up into that penetrating gaze and felt a jolt of despair. Why was he asking her that now? She’d pushed her doubts away…hadn’t she? Of course she had concerns about what they were doing. It wasn’t smart…it wouldn’t end well…but she wanted him. So badly. Oh god, she didn’t want to think…

The hunter’s handsome face had turned more the iron mask with every thought that passed through her mind…as if he could hear each, damning one. Finally, frowning, he pushed away from her and stood.

Yeira sat up, terror clawing her throat. “Wait! Where are you going?”

Audie grabbed his discarded pants. “I told you, I’ll not take you if you aren’t fully sure it’s what you want.” He started to walk away.

“But I am…why are you leaving?” Even as she leapt to her feet, Yeira realized how desperate she sounded. She couldn’t seem to stop herself.

He turned back, closing the distance between them in two, large strides, radiating frustration. Every muscle in his body seemed made of iron. But his voice when he addressed her was filled with pain rather than anger.

It was like a razor across her heart.

“I’ve no doubt your body wants me, woman. I can smell your need…taste it on your lips. But it isn’t only your body I mean to claim. It’s your mind.” His lips opened as if there were more he wanted to say…but he shook his head and turned away from her.

Yeira watched his fine, naked form stalk away from her until it was consumed by the velvet darkness, and felt everything inside her melt down into a puddle of despair.

What had he seen in her eyes? And, whatever it was, why the hell hadn’t she hidden it better?

Killing Zombies is Easy – It Takes a Real Man to Refrain – Or does it?

Okay, I’ll admit it, where zombies are concerned, I’m kind of blood thirsty. To me, those rotting, nasty things are like cockroaches. If you saw a cockroach in your kitchen, you wouldn’t let it live just because it scurried behind the dishes in the cabinet and you couldn’t see it anymore.

Would you?

Like millions of other people, I’m a huge fan of the TV series, The Walking Dead. I love the show, though it’s so intense there are times I’m just not up to watching. I mean, isn’t it bad enough that they’re being chased and eaten by hoards of nasty zombies…the writers had to give them a killer bug too? And mean people who keep trying to kill them? Seriously?

But I digress.

What I really wanted to talk about was all the zombies they see and don’t kill. Really? I know there are lots of them, but you can’t stop killing them just because there are so many! If I were living in that prison, I’d spend every waking moment sticking sharp objects through the monsters’ brains. Yeah, I’m vindictive that way. But this letting them live crap always comes back to bite our heroes in the ass, literally.

Playing Devil’s Advocate though, what if my view on this is wrong? Should you kill something or someone just because they/it might try to kill you later? Hmm

My hero, Audie Kord, in the soon to be released Tall, Dark & Apocalyptic, is a Sorceri warrior. His mission is to find and exterminate all the creatures a certain black witch has created through death magic. He starts his mission thinking his job is black and white.

See a zombie, kill a zombie. No gray area.

But then he meets Yeira. Yeira’s a zombie…sort of…and she was created/enhanced by the black witch. But she’s beautiful and smart and, whenever he lays eyes on her, Audie’s body tightens with sexual heat. He’s supposed to kill her. His brain tells him he should, because it’s what he does and she’s his target. But his heart stays his hand. Yeira is nothing like he expects her to be and, with his awareness of her as a living, breathing human being, he finds himself reassessing both his perspective of the creatures he hunts, and his opinion of Yeira herself.

Audie saw a zombie and didn’t immediately kill her. Because of this restraint he might find love. And he might learn something about the creatures that he never would have learned if he’d done what he was trained to do.

So, dang it! I guess it might make sense not to just perform wholesale slaughter of zombies, because they’re there. But I still think the cast of TWD needs flame throwers, or bombs. I mean, come on. One at a time? Really? There’s like billions of the nasty things. Kill those suckers! Rip off their heads!!

Oops, sorry. I guess I need a little more convincing.

How about you? Would you play hide and seek with zombies if you found yourself near them? Or would you grab the nearest flamethrower and toast their moldy butts into the next life? 

talldarkapocalyptic3DA grand passion in an apocalyptic world. A love beyond reason and without boundaries.

He’s a warrior, a bounty hunter in a world turned upside down. She’s a target, a creature of dark magic. His job is simple. Kill the target. Her goal is more complex. She must stay alive until she finds and destroys the source of death magic staining the twenty worlds. But the passion burning within them may be their undoing. It’s going to take an apocalyptic will to overcome the distraction their bodies are creating…and not lose themselves in the process.

5 stars – Venus Cahill Reviews: “This story jumps right into the action and never lets up! Yeira is a kick-butt heroine but she’s still easy to relate to, which was surprising considering her amazingly unique situation. Kord is the ultimate Alpha and he took my breath away. He’s masculine and imposing and while he is steadfast and dependable he is also a good man at heart. The setting becomes almost a third lead character and I loved it. I cannot wait to read more stories about the fabulous world this author has created. I will freely admit to being a huge fan of this author, I love her Honeybun series but I was a little apprehensive of reading an apocalyptic story as I rarely enjoy them but this one was a definite exception not only did I thoroughly enjoy it I want more!”

~~*~~

“You don’t need to run from this, Yeira,” he told her. “In fact, you can’t run. You’re scared and confused because you want me, beyond thought, past caring.”

Yeira shook her head. “You can’t know…”

His lips found her shoulder—pressed a lingering kiss there—and she shivered under its power. “I know, because I feel exactly the same. I’ve been trying to deny it since first laying eyes on you. But it’s impossible. You and I aren’t just a man and a woman. Our bodies are tuned to each other in an almost magical way. When we’re apart I can barely think of anything else. I haven’t looked at another woman since I met you. My mind has tried to explain to me that you and I are at cross purposes…that we aren’t suited in any way…but my body doesn’t care about reason. It only cares that your skin is impossibly soft.” He ran a hot, lightly calloused hand up her belly, skimming the swollen curve of her breast. “—that your scent turns my brain to mush and stiffens my cock. I know now that I won’t be able to shove you out of my mind until I’ve tasted you…”

Hope flared in her breast. “Do you think that will work? That we can push these feelings aside if we just give in and have sex?”

His lips trailed up the side of her throat and he nibbled her jawline. One hand encompassed her breast and the other slipped downward, to skim beneath the waistband of her battle leather. “What you and I will share won’t be just sex, Yeira. It will be an exorcism…a purging.”

He easily stretched the leather away from her lower belly, sliding his hand past it to cup her sex. Yeira gasped, fire coiling in her belly. She knew he was right. She’d known it for some time.

In that moment it seemed impossible to resist what he was offering. Worse, it seemed utterly stupid.

She turned in his arms and arched into him, her hands lifting to twine through his midnight hair. “Then so be it. Let this be the start of our healing…and the end of our obsession.”

RELEASED TODAY! Sizzling Post-Apocalyptic Romance

I sent an ARC of my upcoming release, Tall, Dark & Alpha out to several reviewers a couple of weeks ago to get some advance reviews for the book. One of the reviews came back five stars, but the reviewer said something that got me thinking. She said she doesn’t usually like apocalyptic fiction but that she really enjoyed TD&A. Her comment made me revisit why I enjoy apocalyptic fiction so much. I actually didn’t realize that I liked it until I stumbled into it while writing a story for Ellora’s Cave. But once I got a taste I couldn’t wait to jump into another story created in an apocalyptic world!

So what do I love about this type of fiction? Probably the same stuff everybody else loves. TD&A is based in a world that’s been turned upside down/inside out. It’s pure survival of the fittest fare. Nothing about this type of world is predictable. Nothing is ordinary. My h/h aren’t fighting regular bad guys. Their nemesis is a terrifyingly powerful dark witch who’s using her magic to create a new type of zombie that is faster, stronger, and able to pass as living in a world where there are no rules and no governing bodies other than the magical organizations that have dedicated themselves to protecting the weaker human population from magic users.

Adding to the yummy darkness of the world my characters live in is a larger-than-life romance that spills beyond their self-proclaimed boundaries and defies their attempts to ignore and eradicate it. And when the h/h are forced to work together toward a common goal, their unwanted feelings for each other may prove impossible to ignore.

Here’s a taste of Tall, Dark & Apocalyptic:

A grand passion in an apocalyptic world. A love beyond reason and without boundaries.

He’s a warrior, a bounty hunter in a world turned upside down. She’s a target, a creature of dark magic. His job is simple. Kill the target. Her goal is more complex. She must stay alive until she finds and destroys the source of death magic staining the twenty worlds. But the passion burning within them may be their undoing. It’s going to take an apocalyptic will to overcome the distraction their bodies are creating…and not lose themselves in the process.

5 stars! Deb Thomas – Beta Reader/Reviewer: “Sam Cheever has created a world full of death, hope and love. This story pulls you and has you rooting for the good guys and some of the bad guys too. I really enjoyed this story. I would love to read more about the twenty worlds.”

~~*~~

Yeira clawed her way across the floor, her limbs locking and clamping as horrific pain racked her slim frame. A fresh blade of agony speared through her as she struggled to crawl just another sliver of space. The pain jolted her to a stop as she sucked in a breath, sending her into a coughing spasm. Blood sprayed the floor as she crawled. Her dazed, blue gaze stared down at the bright droplets arrayed before her over the oily stone and she knew a stark moment of pure fear.

What if she didn’t make it in time?

Beyond the thick, concrete walls of her hideaway, the sound of explosions and chaos were a constant drone, an unrelenting impetus pushing her ever forward.

With a monumental effort of will, Yeira gritted her teeth and dug her fingers into the rough surface beneath them, dragging herself another inch.

She barely noticed the spark of pain as her soft, exposed belly was ripped open by shards of debris on the battle-ravaged floor. Her goal was a mere five inches away.

She thought she could make it.

She had to.

Yeira closed her eyes as agony washed through her again and lunged another inch. Her fingertips stretched…strained…mere inches from the leather strap.

The world beyond the door exploded and Yeira’s head snapped around. The blast had sounded close. Too close. Panic made her heart pound. “No!” Tears filled her eyes as something heavy hit the door. He’d found her.

With a cry of desperation, Yeira dug her toes into the stone and shoved. The pain erupted in a burst that made her vision gray. She screamed as agony gripped her gut with icy needles, tearing and dislodging the ordered cells of her flesh.

Yeira fell onto her back, her fingers clenching against the torment. Warm, thick blood drenched her lips, dripping down her chin.

The door blasted inward, sending smoke and shrapnel through the room and driving the razor-sharp projectiles into her flesh.

On some level, Yeira felt the pain of the tiny missiles piercing her skin. But she was in the grip of a misery so complete that her mind could barely form a thought. All she could do was scream, her fingers closing convulsively around the thin strap of leather she’d been fighting to reach.

Yeira’s gaze slid to the large shape framed in the door. He was nothing more than a gray haze behind the smoke. A vision of massive male, whose form all but filled the ragged hole that had once been the door.

A fine vision.

Yeira shook her head, offended by the thought even in her tortured state. No! The man was there to kill her. She couldn’t lose sight…

The enormous figure shimmered and she realized he was moving closer. On some level Yeira knew she needed to move. But the pain had finally receded as her body gave out. It felt good not to be consumed by it. For just a moment she longed to lie there, enjoying the numbness, and let her life slip away.

Death.

Her fingers moved along the leather strip in her hand. Oblivion would be bliss. Yeira slipped her hand inside the bag, feeling for a smooth, oblong shape.

The sound of his footsteps across the littered floor was like a series of canon blasts, and she winced under every one. His massive arms arched from his sides as he walked, the huge hands loosely fisted. He held a long knife in one hand. Thick, muscular legs stuck out from underneath a bloody and tattered kilt, the burgundy and black pattern barely visible under the filth of an extended battle.

Yeira noted the blade in his hand, knowing it was meant for her.

He stopped a foot away, his intense, dark-blue gaze sweeping over her. “My god, woman. You look like hell.”

Yeira’s lips opened and something gurgled in her throat. She thought it might be a death rattle, but it emerged as a laugh. She licked her lips as he cocked his head. “Bite me, Sorceri.”

Amazingly his wide mouth turned upward in a smile. “I don’t swing that way, zombie.”

A dense cold crept up her legs, slipped along her spine. In another minute she would be completely numb. She wouldn’t even feel the knife he held down at his side as it sliced her head from her body. But though she was a breath away from dying, Yeira couldn’t help tweaking him one last time. “You haven’t got what it takes anyway, Kord.”

His smile slipped. The sexy gaze darkened. Yeira realized the smoke was clearing and she could see him in all his glory…a dark avenging angel sent to rip her from the living world. He inclined his dark head, the silky strands of black hair framing a square chin, dark with shadow even when cleanly shorn. “You could be right, woman. But…” He seemed to swallow. “There was a time I would have wished for a different outcome.”

Her eyes widened. A different kind of pain ripped her chest apart. She swore, her fingers closing over the slick, oblong object she sought.

So it was to be a death of a thousand cuts—the first cut deeply severing her heart?

She licked her dry lips. “I never wish, Sorceri. Wishing is for children and fools.” Holding his gaze with her own, she clutched the ancient bluestone in her fist and envisioned her lair. The air above her thinned, turning glossy, and her nemesis started to blur.

As his sexy gaze widened in realization, Yeira was brutally ripped from the battered castle. Her lips open in a silent scream as the ascension tore her apart at a cellular level and sent her plummeting through the void between time.

But all was good. The last thing she heard as her earthly form disintegrated, was the rage-filled roar of the deadly sexy Sorceri warrior as he realized she’d escaped him again.

A love beyond reason and without boundaries — Tall, Dark and Apocalyptic

I recently asked a group of women what traits they love most about their favorite alpha males. They mentioned things like strength, dominance, possessiveness, and the ability and willingness to protect others (See our Thursday 13 post about Alpha traits here!). The question was based on fictional alpha males, but obviously pertains to real life alphas as well. Today’s men are expected to fight with words rather than fists. They’re told they should stand behind their women (literally as well as figuratively), and these women (unlike men) can be as aggressive and dominating as they’d like. A strong man is considered a Neanderthal, with more brawn than brains. A ruthless or aggressive man is considered dangerous and must be subjugated or stopped entirely.  However, fortunately for us alpha lovers, there are still a few places where it’s okay to act like a man. Certain male-dominated professions not only encourage alpha-like qualities, but they are generally respected because of them.

Firefighters, cops, and soldiers come to mind.

So what is it about the men of  these heroic professions that draws women? Well, for one thing, they’re all big on the protective instincts. In fact these heroes often sacrifice their own safety to protect others. There are no weaklings in the protective services. They require strength of mind as well as body, bringing to mind visions of broad shoulders, taut six packs and firm, nicely rounded pecs. These men embody the alpha spirit in almost every way. So, is it any wonder the men of the protective services dominate in today’s romantic fiction?

I love a good fictional as well as real life alpha male, which is why I wrote Tall, Dark & Apocalyptic. And I can’t wait to share my heroine, Yeira with you! Here’s a taste of Tall, Dark & Apocalyptic:

A grand passion in an apocalyptic world. A love beyond reason and without boundaries.

He’s a warrior, a bounty hunter in a world turned upside down. She’s a target, a creature of dark magic. His job is simple. Kill the target. Her goal is more complex.

5 Shooting Stars! Redz World Reviews:  “…reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet with a post world war feel. Even the secondary characters were unforgettable… Tall, Dark and Apocalyptic by Sam Cheever will engage you on multiple levels; many you won’t even realize until long after you finish the tale.”

~~*~~

The woman was mad. Audie forced himself to hold her gaze, though his gut churned and his fists were clenched so hard his knuckles hurt. “You’ll just stand there and let me kill you?” His voice was like gravel on glass and he had to force the words past a clenched jaw.

She didn’t look happy about it but she nodded.

“Why would you do that?” Even to Audie his tone sounded choked, unhappy.

Her delicate chin lifted and anger flashed through her exquisite gaze. “I’d have thought you of all people would understand. You said yourself I’m a monster. If I’m to be true to my goal of clearing away Edwige’s spawn, that would include me, wouldn’t it?”

Her rationale was perfect, her calm in discussing her own death chilling. Audie couldn’t deny his earlier, hateful words. But in that moment he’d have cut off a hand to be able to. He looked down, no longer able to hold her gaze.

“Will you help me?” The words were spoken so softly Audie barely heard them. But their meaning made them thrum against his ears. If he agreed to help her he’d be concurring with all of it.

He wasn’t sure he could deliver on the second part of her deal. But he nodded, knowing that if he didn’t do it she’d find another hunter who would be all too willing to oblige. Audie had a sudden thought that lightened the load on his heart. “I’ll help you destroy Edwige but only if you’ll aid me in exterminating the last of her pets.”

It would only delay the inevitable but if he tarried—

Surprise flashed through her expression, followed quickly by suspicion. Lifting a feathery, red eyebrow she asked, “You don’t think you can kill them on your own?”

“It will go more quickly if you help.” He hoped the lie didn’t sound as weak to her as it did to him.

A grand passion in an apocalyptic world — Tall, Dark and Apocalyptic

My story Tall, Dark & Apocalyptic releases today as part of a box set entitled Tall, Dark & Alpha. As the name implies, this set features 10 hot Alpha heroes and the women who keep them on their toes. I’m really excited about this story because I believe, as the rabid sales of romances with strong alpha males show, women are desperately seeking an alpha. In fact, I’ve done a series of blog posts on that very subject. Here’s a tidbit from one:

The alpha male is the next great endangered species. He is drugged into oblivion in grade school to force him to sit still and have no aggressive tendencies at all. He’s bound and controlled throughout early adulthood by political correctness that declares his every natural instinct and need as abhorrent and deviant. In fact, now, his last vestige of normal male fun, sports, is currently being nit-picked and micro-managed in a ridiculous attempt to envelop its participants in virtual bubble wrap and create a more genteel enterprise.

Nonsense.

Men were created with big muscles so that they could hunt and gather and fight off predators. They are driven and active, and have learned to work off their more aggressive tendencies in sport and competition. These are all good things. Throughout history women and children have depended on these aspects of the human male for their very survival. If you believe those days are past, you haven’t read the news lately. We still need our alpha males!  Full blog post

I love a good fictional as well as real life alpha male, which is why I wrote Tall, Dark & Apocalyptic. And I can’t wait to share the wonderful Audie Kord with you on March 8th! In the meantime, here’s a taste:

EXCERPT

“There are ten reborns in that hillside lair.”

Audie pulled his sword so quickly the woman’s sexy blue gaze widened slightly with alarm. “Let’s go kill them.”

Instead of moving, Yeira just stared up at him, looking eminently disappointed.

When she didn’t move, Audie placed the tip of his sword in the dirt at his feet and leaned on it. “What?”

“Have you even been listening to me?”

He frowned. “Hanging on every word, why?”

“You remember the part about my goal? Wherein I don’t kill everything that moves but instead try to find Edana?”

She sounded so much like his legal counsel Audie couldn’t help grinning. She certainly didn’t look anything like any lawyer he’d ever met. “Vaguely.”

She turned on her heel and strode away, her feet hitting the dry, scratchy-sounding grass much harder than they needed to. Feeling just a tiny bit proud of himself for getting under her skin, Audie started after her.

The warm fuzziness didn’t last long. As soon as he caught up she glanced at him and asked. “So how good are you at restrictive magics?”

Audie worked hard not to show his panic. “I’m much better at whacking things than restraining them.”

One corner of her delicious mouth curved upward. “You do have guide magic, right?”

“Of course!” He was deeply insulted by her question. Only the novice hunter walked around without a guide to call. “I didn’t say I couldn’t restrain them. I just said I was better at lopping off their heads.”

She sniffed but didn’t say anything and Audie’s temper flared. Suddenly he found it very important to prove himself to her. He stopped and the woman kept walking. Watching her fine, heart-shaped behind sway away from him, he lifted one hand, palm up. With a thought he called the magic in their surroundings and sparking blue particles of energy suddenly filled the air, speeding toward him. The light caught and swirled in a power-whirlwind above his palm, waiting for his direction.

Smiling, Audie glanced at the woman, whose, curvy form had widened the distance between them by ten feet. With a single thought he sent the swirling blue magic toward her, grinning as it wrapped her in a shimmering embrace, dragging her to a halt.

She gave a little squeal of alarm and Audie strode over, stopping to stare down at her. “It appears my restrictive magics work just fine.

She struggled against his magic web. “Good. Now let me go.”

Watching her fight the magic, her silky, red hair flying around delicate shoulders as she struggled to get free, something broke inside Audie. Something that had been closed was wrenched open. And suddenly he couldn’t help wondering what her wine-colored lips would taste like—pondering how they’d feel moving softly beneath his.

Once the thought was free he couldn’t call it back and Audie found himself stepping closer.

She stopped struggling and looked up at him through those unfathomable blue eyes, the thick fringe of dark red lashes fluttering slightly as she seemed to consider whether he meant her harm. Audie reached out and touched her porcelain-colored cheek, and she flinched.

His finger scraped softly against the velvet surface and Audie turned it so the callouses on the tips wouldn’t abrade her delicate skin. “How is it possible that you’re so beautiful?” He murmured. It was meant to be a thought. One he’d wondered all too often to himself. But the words had escaped his lips and she’d heard.

Yeira’s eyes widened in alarm. “Look, hunter, I…”

He didn’t want to hear what she had to say. Couldn’t stand it if, in the moment when his cold heart had warmed slightly, she filled the heat-charged air between them with ugly words. So he did the only thing he could. He lowered his head and captured her lush, burgundy lips with his own.

And the thing that had blossomed inside his chest creaked open another inch as she responded with instinctual passion to his touch.
