Charming the Alphas – An Exclusive Teaser : Talina Perkins

Four days into the new year and it’s already shaping up to be an exciting one! I’m wrapping up the final sexy words on Charming the Alphas and I can’t wait for you to meet my favorite of all the sisters from the hex my Heart series. Marabelle Winters is not your average earth witch. She’s found herself in the cross hairs of an ancient order and has lost her magical powers to their antiquated system of government over her people. But she’s not one to sit around and take their high handed treatment. With her lovers by her side, she’ll face down death, kick a few stones over that should have been left alone and discover that being mated to two alpha shifters has a lot of kinky benefits.

Exclusive to 69 Shades I have a small snippet for you guys followed up with the book synopsis and if you feel so inclined I’ve also provided the pre-order links so you don’t miss the release of Charming the Alphas! 😉

We step into the story where Marabelle is forced into some shady business that involves a black ski mask and some stealthy moves. Below is an unedited cut. Please excuse any mistakes.

****

Pressed flat against the floor to ceiling bookshelf, Marabelle peeled her back off the wood far enough to steal a peek around the corner, her new location half masked by the cart of library books she’d left in place before clocking out of work earlier that evening. Score one for the librarian.

A deep hum proceeded to fill the room before an army of tiny golden balls of light zoomed beneath the arched entryway and fanned out to cover the large chamber. No doubt all on the orders of a very pissed of warlock she’d ticked off between slipping out of the High Council’s secret vault and tripping the ward she somehow missed.

Which was a puzzle in itself. She never missed wards. They were her thing. That and healing potions and spell work.

Rookie move, Sweetpea! Her father’s words played across her mind.

One of the orbs drifted down the opposite aisle within feet of her position. She clung to the rapidly reducing amount of shadows. Ignoring the fact her lungs cried for a deep gulp of air, she froze. If luck had any say in tonight’s events, the nasty bugger would confuse her for one of the many statues scattered throughout the library. The magick may seem pretty on the outside, all sparkles and glitter. The truth of the matter, given the chance those things went off at the slightest twitch of movement and would send you on a nice long trip with the reaper. Despite her less than noble actions kicking the cauldron didn’t have a slot on her agenda of sticking it to the rat-faced Royals.

One’s own death isn’t the kind of thing a witch goes around planning, but after tonight, kicking the cauldron would be the easy way out.

Brutally stripped of her magick for helping a human friend with a love potion, Marabelle Winters has finally found a way to recover her preternatural powers. Tucked away in the pages of a centuries old tome in the High Council’s secret library, the spell calls for lethal and illegal ingredients that will reveal a secretive past and shed light on a future she never thought possible.

But first, she’ll have to die.

As pack enforcers Lucian and Zane’s first instinct is to protect their sassy witch. Their second is to claim her. But before they can take her as their life mate, both alpha shifters have vowed to help Marabelle reclaim her powers. But, when the time comes, all three soon discover not everything is as it seems in the world of Magick. Shadows of evil taint their unity and Marabelle’s destiny leads them into an unknown world where the ultimate battle between black magick, dragons, and shifters cross paths and could lead to another blood-drenched Witches and Weres war.

Hex My Heart, a werewolf erotic series, follows five coven sisters as they find true love through their misadventures with love spells gone wrong with a botched hex or two. Be warned, this series is smokin’ hot!

Charming the Alphas has a Release Date & Pre-Order Links! – TALINA PERKINS

Marabelle has been my constant companion since I wrote the first sentence to the hex my heart series. She’s sat in her corner tossing out odd tidbits and down right sinful delights to keep my writer’s brain occupied for the last six months. With each book released in the series she’s become more and more zealous in her attempt to get my attention and now that I am writing her book, Marabelle is very determined I get her story just right. Let’s just say she’s a tough heroine and has an insatiable hunger for revenge against the High Council. No doubt this is going to be on helluva wild ride!

So mark your calendars, my lovelies! Charming the Alphas releases February 2, 2016 and is up for preorder! ​

Until release day, I’ll be sharing snippets on Facebook and here on the blog. Today I have the blurb to wet your appetite for witches and werewolves. If you haven’t picked up the Hex My Heart series yet, I’m keeping each book at $0.99 as a way to show my appreciation to all my readers. You have plenty of time to catch up before Charming the Alphas hit’s the digital shelves. :)​

Within the Cocoon of Silence…

7d099184000be060ef270958fc75a4ce

The silence is loud if you’re listening.

… is when the magic comes to life.

There are days when my mind is quiet and others when the words flow with no end in sight. Constant ramblings, snippets of story lines, dialogue, scene ideas, and what have you.

Today, though, has been a hushed day with little to no extra chatter. The normal built-in to-do list is on autopilot with little to no luck of turning it off, but from there, the home front is still. Calm even.

Come to think of it, this entire week has been quiet, with no rush to click open Facebook with some sort of sassy comment or quick words of encouragement I like to share at times. At first, I was worried. Worried because the words were few and I am in the middle of a story. A scary place to have a loss of words.

However, during the stillness of this morning, before the children roused and started their daily weekend activities, something occurred to me. It’s okay NOT to have something to say all the time. It’s okay to give myself the time to turn reflective and let the daily humdrum fade away. You know what I’m talking about? That special ‘you’ time?

What if this is the calm before the storm? The stolen time before all hell breaks loose and I have so much to say there won’t be enough time in the day to get it all out of my head? I crave those days, truly. But what am I to learn when the words slow? Should I force them or take a beat and let the silence speak?

In the last few days I’ve come to realize my muse is sneaky and clever, willing to give me my answers, if I only listen. Letting the thoughts, ideas and words accumulate, marinate if you will, is just as powerful as typing away word after word. I discovered this recently when my muse woke me from a dead sleep and gave me exactly what I needed to continue a scene. Perplexing and mind opening how it took the wee hours of the morning for my mind to be quiet enough to find what I needed.

In just a few hours I begin two long projects that I have no doubt will consume my every thought for the next four months. These projects have weighed on my mind for the last year and a half. My muse knows this and I suspect is preparing for the heavy work load, hoarding the creative energy until it’s time to let it overflow and pour onto the page.

For now I must embrace the quiet, enjoy the stillness, and let my mind harness the creativeness the universe is providing. My muse is smart enough to listen.

I just need to accept the quiet as a gift and sit back, ready for what is to come.

In the mean time, tell me what you do when the silence comes? Do you like to disconnect and relax with a good book? Take to writing in a journal maybe? Something I would love to pick up as a habit, by the way. Or do you just settle in for a good long ‘you’ time?

***Leave a comment with your answer and I’ll pick two winners for a Kindle copy of any title on my back list. Don’t forget to leave your email addy! AND I’ve extended my two day weekly giveaway so that everyone here can join in at this link HERE.***

New Release, Exclusive Excerpt, & Sunday Treats!

Happy Sunday everyone! Today I’m taking the kiddos to the beach for a little sun and play in the sand before the work week kicks off again. I start a new story come Monday and my batteries are running low. Not a good combo so some down time sounds really nice. Before I lather on the sunscreen I wanted to leave everyone with some sweet treats. I hope you’re all having a beautiful weekend filled with friends, family and a fabulous book!

Though Valentines might be over, I don’t think we need a special day to take home a hot alpha shifter or a sexy Marine, right? Last week I released Hexing the Alpha, the first in a brand new werewolf romance series. As promised in my last post, I’m sharing an exclusive excerpt with all the readers here at 69 Shades.

Today is also the last day to pick up the second book in my Sexy Siesta series, Tequila Sunset, while it’s still only 99cents! It goes back to regular price tomorrow!

LAST DAY TO PICK THIS UP FOR $.99!

Hexing Excerpt:

“Tell me you have it ready, Honor,” answered a nervous voice through the earpiece.

Honor’s heart swelled for the woman on the other end. She was so desperate for love she’d try anything. It’s why she’d agreed to help out with the love potion. If only her sisters would see it her way, she could have delivered and collected days ago.

Honor traced the soft edges of a napkin, her back to the crowd forming around the bar. “Hey, Marabelle. The potion is ready. When would you like to meet for delivery?”

Hexing-the-alpha_HMH_TP5x7

What’s a witch to do when her love spell goes wrong and the sexy alpha werewolf of her dreams wants to mate?

“Right now if you can. I don’t want to waste another minute if you know what I mean.”

Honor rolled her eyes and smothered a chuckle at her client’s innuendo. She hoped the poor man on the other end of the spell could handle the lust-filled night Marabelle had in mind for them.

“The sooner the better. How about in an hour? My place? Yours? A la clandestine, I presume?” she added in a low whisper. Humans understood how her Council’s law worked, which helped to explain why the forbidden brew came with a hefty price tag.

Before she could respond, Honor’s magick shimmered the length of her spine and instinct stiffened her muscles. “Your place works fine. See you then, Marabelle.”

Snapping her phone closed, she whirled on her heel, expecting to find one of her sisters. Instead, chiseled muscles defined by outdoor labor and encased in black cotton came into view. She traced a path first down to see solid thighs covered in the sexiest fucking black jeans she’d ever seen on a man and up to find a gorgeous set of dark blue eyes staring down at her.

“Getting into trouble again?” he drawled, his rough baritone doing wicked things to her cool composure.

That was on the outside. On the inside two emotions warred for control. Fear of what he might have overheard with his heightened hearing. And nerve-searing, thigh-clenching lust.

Lust was winning by a mile.

He anchored his hands on two wooden chairs on either side of him and breathed in deeply then released on a long sigh. “Honor.”

Why did he have to say her name as if he’d just made love with her?

Jake—the werewolf shifter that starred in all her fantasies—stood so close she could reach out and touch any part of her fantasy she wished.

He must have sensed the turn her dirty mind had taken because his pupils dilated and the rims of his irises brightened with an otherworldly glow in a color she could only describe as a mixture of sapphire with shards of ruby. The contrast just as striking as the man.
