Greetings, Kittens!

It's been a while and I thought I'd start back with another look at A WAY TO A DRAGON'S HEART, before moving on to a holiday theme offering next week. You can read the entire 1st chapter HERE   and there will be a chance to when a copy of  A WAY TO A DRAGON'S HEART in two weeks at TRS party.

Be sure to leave your name in you comment so I can be sure to visit!

Enjoy.


Caleb quickly shook his head. “No, it’s never been like that, I’ve encouraged Xander to go for it from early on when they first met. I thought they’d be good for each other, and I felt better knowing Kryssa would take care of him the next time I left.”

He looked over at her, “Even when his brothers were at their most negative and vocal, Kryssa never wavered in her support. She offered to throw me out a window the first time Xander and I were off-again after they became friends, but the goal was to clear the way so we could go straight to make-up/comfort sex after I healed.”

Caleb laughed and nodded, “I know she’s been on my side from the beginning, and with his Fae blood and my Therian and Vampire instincts, I knew we’d go back to being polyamorous eventually; we always do. I’ve even spent more time than I should admit to wondering about it being Kryssa."

Greetings, Kittens!

Welcome back, always glad to hear from you! This picks up within the same conversation between Kryssa and her brother Dominic.

Enjoy.


 

“I know that, and you don’t have to mentally measure me for a coffin, Krys, I’m not talking about a relationship, I just think you need another focus. What about Xander? He seems great from everything you say. When’s the last time you had sex anyway?”

Kryssa slid back on the desk and folded her legs tailor fashion, “Don’t bring this down to sex and stress relief, Nicky; I could sleep with the entire Human Resources department and that girl would still be only slightly smarter than a bag of hammers. Why are you making this about me?”

Greetings, Kittens!

Welcome back and thank you for coming by each week. Today I offer more of A Way To A Dragon's Heart. I'm so excited for the release next month that I can't focus on another story yet, so I'm thrilled that you all seem to love Kryssa as much as I do. This picks up just  a bit after last week and you can read all of the offers so far HERE. For reference, this is Kryssa speaking with her brother Dominic.

Enjoy.

“She touched me to check if I was warm-blooded, and you and I both know, I’m going to be checking her blood if she touches me again.”

Dominic ran his hand over his face. “At least you haven’t thrown her out of a window like the last time someone touched you.”

Kryssa’s jaw dropped, “First of all, as an Avian, he should have known better. Second, we were only twenty stories up, for a WereFalcon that’s playground level; he would have landed safely in his sleep. Third, not only did we still get the account, but he thanked me for the compliment to his virility and he asked me out.”

Greetings, Kittens!

We're back to A Way To A Dragon's Heart today. I loved last week's 6SS, but I couldn't find a snippet I liked that wasn't a spoiler for the first two books, maybe next week. :)

Previous offerings from this story are HERE and thanks for coming by, as always! You all lift my day more than you know.

Enjoy.

“Where’s your assistant?”

“She’s on maternity leave, remember,” Kryssa muttered around the mouthful of vegetables.

She watched Dominic look around the office like he expected the object of his question to materialize out of nowhere. “Where’s the temp they sent over this morning? Tell me now if we need someone from Clinic to come up.”

“No, we don’t need medical personnel," she grinned, "I left her in the break room and by now, she’s probably trying to figure out if the screen on the microwave gets cable.”

Somber Greetings, Kittens!

In light of the day, I've moved from my more comedic offerings from A Way To A Dragon's Heart and back to my PsiCorps series. This is PsiCorps #3, tentatively titled Saint Valentine.

Enjoy.

“I don’t care,” she interrupted. “I cared when you came in, but we’ve passed that point, so let me tell you my name instead. I’m Agent Riley Valin, but there are quite a few that use Kali Valin, I’m open to both; either way, you need to go and say those names to someone who’s been in the building more than two minutes. Otherwise you need to rapidly experience the good fortune of spinning the wheel and buying a clue, so you know where you stand in this situation.”

"So what, you’re The Doctor in this situation?” he laughed.

Riley smiled, “My inner geek loves you just a little bit for that fandom reference, but my outer bitch is about to hurt your sense of self-esteem.”

Greetings, Kittens! Welcome back, I always appreciate you coming by. I didn't get around last week like I wanted, so please pardon double comments this week as I catch up on your 6SSs. Today is a continuation of last week after Kryssa came and interrupted her brother Dominic's meeting.

For those who need to catch up, you can do so with our First, Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth offerings.


Enjoy.

She leaned across the table, smiling at the childhood friend on its other end. “You’re going to accept the merger right, Jimmy? You always were, your sister told me last week. This is just a bit of show in order to ensure you get the east coast offices; which, let me tell you, Nicky is completely prepared to give to you, so you all may as well take an early lunch, business done.”


Dominic stood abruptly and picked her up, carrying her from the room without another word. As distractions went, it worked, and she munched contently as he strode down the hall, giving the smallest grunt when he finally plopped her down on the receptionist desk in her outer office.


Update: I have caught up on last week's 6SS for all those who posted here. The only people I may have missed are those who posted anonymous without leaving a name. Please be sure to let me know who you are so I can return the favor! :)

Greetings, Kittens!


Thank you for joining me here again. Your comments are always appreciated! Today is the fifth offering from  A WAY TO A DRAGON'S HEART because I needed the smile. In our last entry Kryssa had escaped from the babbling temp to head for a neutral corner. She ends up sitting on a conference table, conveniently overlooking the meeting going on at the time. *grin*


Also, for those who need to catch up. First, Second, Third, Fourth installments.




Enjoy!

Dominic Drake sat back and shook his head, “My baby sister just came in eating the equivalent of an entire salad bar and sat on my conference table to crunch her way through the middle of my business negotiations. Where should my list of complaints begin?”


That didn’t leave a lot of room to argue with him, but with family, such a thing is hardly a deterrent to trying. She popped another carrot and looked to the oval table. “First, this is my conference table; your conference table would be two floors above, up the hall from your office. You came to my floor, and it’ll be run my way; As Chief Liaison Officer, I like to liaise in comfort so we do things rather informal here."

Greetings, Kittens!

Here's a bit more of A WAY TO A DRAGON'S HEART. It's more or less right after the last entry and still between Kryssa, (who the temp keeps referring to as Chrissie), and our temp from "the cheerleading rung of hell". *grin* Kryssa is speaking around a mouth full of crunchy veggies.

If you wish to catch up. First, Second, & Third offerings of AWTADH.

Enjoy.

"So, um, just between us girls, have you ever eaten anyone, Chrissie?”

“No, but give me a minute," Kryssa said.

"I'm sorry," Big blue Bambi eyes blinked over at her, "I didn’t understand you.”

I’m not the only thing she doesn’t understand by a long shot.
“I said give me a minute, I have to take care of something,but you can familiarize yourself with the snack machine.” Kryssa backed away slowly, the way you escape from a dog you think might be rabid; or in this case, severely mentally stunted, and therefore dangerous to your dry cleaning bill with the slobbering and the pawing.

Greetings, Kittens!

Thank you all for the kind comments last week! I'm feeling a bit better, but over-did it in the heat Saturday, probably like many of us. So glad to see you again this week, and your comments are always appreciated. Today I'm going back to A WAY TO A DRAGON'S HEART since I'll be entering edits soon and it's on my mind. The following is just a few paragraphs after the First and Second offerings.

Enjoy.

Kryssa needed something to calm her nerves before she forgot herself and a simple orientation became a full blown situation. A quick rooting through the fridge produced a large tub of raw vegetables. Almost before the top was fully off, several baby carrots disappeared into her mouth.

“Ooo, you eat vegetables too?”

Kryssa crunched louder and groaned, “We’re omnivores, you idiot.” The last two words came out a mumbled wreck that bought her a little extra time for decorum.

Greeting's Kittens!

Thanks for coming by this week. I'm sorry I missed out last Sunday, I'm still sick but I'll comment and visit as much as I can. Today's offer from DAWN'S EARLY LIGHT is directly after Six Sentence Sunday #5.

Enjoy.

     Kincaid’s left hand worked his shirt out of his pants and up over his head. “I instigated this, I’m going to make amends. Skin to skin contact, don’t push for more, I’m all out of extra luck and saintly patience.” He dropped down to the balls of his feet and dipped his tongue into the hollow at the bottom of Ajay’s spine. Over the course of a full minute, he licked his way back to standing, pausing at each chakra point along the way to drag his tongue in a clockwise circle twice before moving on. He stayed flush to Ajay’s body, sliding skin to skin until he reached the back of Ajay’s neck and lightly bit down.

Greetings, Kittens!

Thank you for coming by again this week. The following is a little after last week's offering from DAWN'S EARLY LIGHT. It's still Ajay and Kincaid being observed by Mackenzie.

Enjoy.



It happened so quickly, Mackenzie missed the smaller details. One moment they were facing each other, the belt in both their hands and the tension between them threatening to take on physical form. The next moment Ajay’s upper body lay face-down across the dresser in the center of the closet, the belt cinched tight over his wrists, the end wrapped several times around Kincaid’s right hand.

“Don’t fight me, Ajay."

It took several tries for Ajay to form the panting breaths into words. “That would defeat the purpose.”

Greetings, Kittens!

Thank you all for coming back again, I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. I've been asked for another glimpse of DAWN'S EARLY LIGHT, so in honor of it being a bright, shiny new release, I'll oblige. This is a scene between Kincaid, (Marshal Ides from GHOST OF CHRISTMAS PAST) and Ajay, (Agent McDaniels, Riley's Partner while Torrin was in the coma).

Enjoy.

Kincaid seemed to hesitate and then he shook himself. “Right now the only activity you need to do is back your pretty little ass up and try on the shirt; and don’t go accidentally dropping that towel trying to entice somebody.”

“Yes, sir,” Ajay backed up. “No accidents involved.” He took off the towel and draped it over his shoulder. “Now that’s out of the way, do I get the same points for looking back over my shoulder that I do for looking up?”

Greetings, Kittens!

Here we are again for Six Sentence Sunday. I'd planned to give you more from A WAY TO A DRAGON'S HEART, but then I noticed the date. It's July 3rd and I have a new release tomorrow July 4th that it would be a shame not to share. We'll head back to Kryssa next week, but let's take a look at how Marshal Mackenzie Matthews is doing in DAWN'S EARLY LIGHT. Available
HERE tomorrow.

I was going to offer a bit of set-up, but I think even without context, the moment speaks for itself in a way I rather like.

Enjoy.

Mackenzie tried to stall but couldn’t remember how. “To see if I could get away with it; because if what you said was true, you wouldn’t be upset.”

“I’m not upset.”

For the first time in the months of being together, of growing closer, he wasn’t entirely sure about that, and that was the allure. It finally clicked why everyone danced so close to the edge, stepping in time to her mercurial nature. The heightened awareness had his heart in this throat, and his body flooded his system with an adrenaline equivalent somewhere between coming in public and petting a tiger.

Greetings, Kittens!

I'm thrilled that so many of you enjoyed the glimpse into A WAY TO A DRAGON'S HEART last week and I thought it only right to bring you more. This follows directly after last week's offering.

Enjoy.


 


Firmly ignoring the too-cute, too-blond, too-perky, Barbie clone, Kryssa continued the tour to the
break room, explaining the shelving and territorial marking of foodstuffs. Just when she thought the dedicated over-talking of the girl had imparted a clue to the temp, it—she—took Kryssa’s arm.

“You’re like, warm and stuff.”

Large, chocolate eyes gave a slow blink as she looked at the girl. Taking that extra breath before speaking, just like they’d taught in anger management, Kryssa tucked a glossy black spiral curl behind her ear and sighed. “The air conditioner is on low and it’s eighty-nine degrees outside, not to mention I’m Therian and run hot; so what exactly is the mystery?”
           The bubbly twit smiled, tilted her head, and gave an affectionate squeeze, confirming the suspicion she had indeed originated from the head cheerleading rung of hell.

“So, you like, get scaly, and big, and stuff?”


               Kryssa Drake gritted her teeth and counted to five. What she wanted to do was get scaly, and big, and stuff, and eat the annoying young woman following her around the office loft, but Human Resources had warned her about doing that again. Not that she’d actually eaten the other temps, but the way that last one had hollered you’d have thought she had him half swallowed when security showed up. It’s what they got for sending irritating, yet crunchy and salty-good humans during her period. It was a conspiracy.
