I am everything you seek. I am vampire.

Blessed with the gift of telepathy, Terek always knows what a woman wants. His gift has afforded him nightly sensual pleasures and exotic treats for centuries, but beneath the surface he yearns for much more.

Ilona can give him what his soul craves, but only if he trusts his heart. One fateful choice made out of desire puts all he cares for in danger. With a civil war and the threat of Archon hunters at every turn, this Son may lose everything if he can’t find the balance between heart and mind.

“Gabrielle does an amazing job on putting a reader through so many emotions at once. I’m telling you now, if you haven’t read these books, you really need to. If you’re a fan of paranormal erotic romance, and love vampires, you will love these books.”5 Moons (Book Lovin’ Mamas)

“I have enjoyed every book in this series so far. I love the fact that there is more going on than just a love story. I like there is action and a mystery. Cant wait to see how it all plays out.”5 Stars Geri, Amazon customer

“With its great characters, vivid descriptions, engaging plot and steamy sex scenes Blood Spirit is a great addition to the Sons of Navarus series. Believe me, you’re going to want to hop aboard the Terek train and take him Blood Spirit for a ride!”4 Hearts (Riverina Romantics)

Excerpt #2 (Adult):

Ilona sighed. “Terek, I don’t seem to be like any of your other vampires.”

She was right.

“I have thousands of vampires, Ilona. You’ve just seen the ones who live here.”

“Are they all women?”

Shaking his head, he laughed. “No. Not all of them. Does that matter?”

He saw it did matter by the way her bottom lip quivered ever so slightly. “Ilona, what’s wrong?”

She closed her eyes and turned away so he couldn’t see her face. “I’ve never been like this. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I barely know you and my head tells me I have every reason to hate you. I know this. But I’m consumed by jealousy at the thought of you with these women and thousands I haven’t even met.”

Terek stared silently at her, unsure of what to say. It was perfectly natural she would be attracted to him. Vampires were sensual beings, and the pull of a sire to a vampire was common. Everything she was experiencing was exactly as it should be.

Before he could tell her this, she turned toward him. “I don’t want to feel this way toward someone who doesn’t feel anything for me.”

The shame in her voice bothered him. Why did she think he felt nothing for her?

“I care about you as I care for all my vampires.”

That wasn’t exactly the truth. In fact, he cared much more for her after only such a short time.

“Chattel. Or worse, as a plaything. Somehow you’ve made me care for you, and I’m simply the latest addition to your collection.”

“Ilona, you’re not a plaything or part of a collection. I didn’t choose to sire you. You were dying because of another vampire’s choice and begged me to save you.”

“Even worse then. I’m a mistake you’re saddled with.”

Terek winced at the pain of her words. Mistake. She believed she was unwanted and unloved. She had no idea the effect she had on him and how much he struggled against the growing feelings for her inside him.

He let his desire control him and leaned toward her, taking her in his arms. A need to feel her mouth yielding to his overtook him, and he kissed her hard, needing her to understand how much he wanted her.

But she didn’t yield. Instead, she met his desire with her own, snaking her tongue past his lips to tease the tip of his tongue. Such a common act he’d experienced countless times before with women now excited him more than he could believe, and his cock sprang to life, pressing hard against his hipbone.

She tasted like some exotic fruit Jasmine seldom found at the market—a treat he rarely got to enjoy but relished so much more when he could. She clung to him by the neck as she pressed her body to his, leaving him in no doubt as to what she wanted.

He wanted it too.

“Ilona…” He stopped, unsure what he’d wanted to say as she slid her hand down the front of his pants.

Looking at him, her eyes wide, she said, “No, don’t say anything. I need this. I don’t want to think about who you are with the others. Even if you have to pretend, then pretend. Just let me have something about being a vampire that brings me happiness.”

Her hand felt like silk as she slid it up and down his stiff cock, grazing the tip just enough to make his hips come up off the bed. His mind was nowhere else but right there with her.

Groaning his desire for more, he tugged a fistful of hair, pulling her head so she looked into his eyes. “No pretending.”

A question for authors and readers…

News, sorry its been too long

He’s pretty, isn’t he?

Okay, that wasn’t the question, sorry but feel free to comment.  🙂

Here’s the question:

For readers:  What draws you to read a book?  Length?  Cover?  Blurb?  Author name?

For authors:  When you were a debut author, what got readers to your book?

The reason I’m asking these questions is because hardly anyone is reading my debut.  I know, I know, its been out a month and it takes awhile for people to find it.  I’ve already heard these from authors…you need a back list, don’t worry about your debut, concentrate on your next book, promo, promo, promo, did you have a mentor when you wrote the book (no I did not), have you joined a writer’s blog (tried but I’ve been rejected more times than I can count).

That’s all well and good and great advice but consider these facts that I have realized:

1.  No one pays that much attention to me on FB or Twitter, so any and all promo that I have done is ignored.

2.  I have/had ARC copies of my book and no one wanted them.

3.  I realize that my book is only 20 pages, it won’t win the Pulitzer but I’m proud of it.

4.  I know that most reviewers are backed up.  It happens, trust me.

5.  I know that the playing field is crowded out there with books, so I’m not sure how to stand out.

6.  I don’t have a posse.  Maybe I should get one…

You are probably thinking that I have sour grapes and in some respects I do.  It hurts when you do something that most people wouldn’t dream of doing, you are proud of it and it seems that no one cares.  It hurts that I have done everything right so far and nothing.  Nada…zip…crickets chirping.

Well, I know that there are people who have read it and liked it.  In fact I was told that I actually mislead them into thinking it was just hot and spicy and its more than that.  😉

I have two blog tours that will start next month and I will post every day where I am for that day.  Hopefully, people will find me on the tours and want to read the book.  It’s all I can hope for now.

Have a great weekend y’all.

I am everything forbidden. I am vampire.

Haunted by betrayal, Saint hides in the human world, giving his heart to no one and finding the only solace from his past in the arms of human women. Now as the Archons begin their takeover of the vampire world, this Son of Navarus has been marked for death.

Summoned to defeat the Archons by the world that shunned him, Saint must face his past and Solenne, the woman he loved and lost a century ago, for only in accepting her will his body and soul finally find salvation.

Reviews

“I just can’t say enough good things about this book. Gabrielle Bisset has another hit on her hands!”5 Hearts (Riverina Romantics)

“There were so many plot twists in this story! This is a fantastic series and I can not wait to read the next book!”5 Rating/An Alpha Howl (Bitten By Paranormal Romance)

“The second Sons of Navarus book, Blood Betrayed, picks up where Blood Avenged left off and does it ever pick things up. In this second book, the war with the Archons is in full swing, and another Son is in danger. This is as much a must read as Blood Avenged is. Definitely, this is a New Favorite!”5 Books (The Enchanted Book)

Excerpt #2 (Adult):

Solenne sat with her head in her hands at the kitchen table, her bruised arms the evidence of her sacrifice. Saint lightly ran his finger over the purple mark where he suspected the Archon had brutally misused her and cringed in anger at the look of pain he saw in her eyes when she looked up at him.

A growl escaped from his lips and his fangs slammed down into his mouth. “Who did this?”

Pushing past him, she shook her head. “Don’t. If this is what I have to endure to keep you safe and help the Sons defeat those bastards, then I do it willingly.”

“Tell me who did this, Solenne. I owe him.”

She spun around to face him, and the pained sound in her voice made him hate himself. “Why? So you can make everything I’ve done meaningless? So you can get yourself killed?”

Before he could answer, she was gone, but he’d seen the tears in her eyes. Anger mixed with the need to protect her, churning his gut into knots until he had to see her.

He had to let her know what she’d done wasn’t meaningless.

Her door was open, and she stood with her back to him. Already out of her clothes, she wore only a tank top and boy shorts that clung to every perfect curve on her body. His cock stiffened as his eyes took in the sight of her gorgeous legs. Long and lean, they were the kind of legs a man loved wrapped around him as he slid in and out of her wet cunt.

“Solenne,” he said almost in a whisper to not startle her, but it didn’t work. She spun around with her arms covering her full breasts that strained against the thin fabric of her tank top, but she couldn’t cover the bruises along her collarbone and across her shoulders.

Obviously inflicted that night, their redness had begun to fade to a deep purple where fingers had pressed roughly into her tender skin. Solenne saw the look of shock he didn’t try to hide from his eyes and scrambled to grab a shirt from the back of a nearby chair.

“What is this?”

“Nothing. Just leave it be.”

Saint took the shirt from her hand and threw it on the bed. “No.” Dipping his head, he softly pressed his lips to the darkest bruise on her left shoulder. Fucking Archon!

Gingerly, he ran his fingers over her skin, gently touching each bruise before raising his head to look at her.  “Solenne, I promise you here and now I’m going to kill the one who did this. I’ll drain him drop by drop until he begs for the release a stake will bring.”

Eyes wide with tears looked up at him, their blue color pale and watery. “Saint, don’t touch me like this if you don’t mean it.”

He meant it. He’d meant it in every dream he’d had of finally returning to her. Taking her face in his hands, he kissed her long and deep, drinking in the delicious taste of the lips he’d missed for so long.

God, he’d yearned to once again feel the touch of her skin next to his! Year upon year of lonely nights interrupted only by pale replacements ebbed from his memory now as his hands once again learned of the woman he’d always loved.

Solenne molded to him, setting his senses ablaze. His body craved to join with her, to finally reclaim that piece of his heart lost so painfully nearly a century ago. He slid his hands under her shirt to her breasts and worshipped them—their fullness in his palms, their deep pink tips pebbled from desire that begged for his mouth’s attention.

“Come.”

Taking her hand, he led her to the shower. “Don’t move.” A quick twist of the faucet handle and warm water streamed down from the showerhead.

“Do I look like I need a shower?” she asked in a teasing tone as he slipped the tank top over her head.

Saint looked down at her sexy mouth as he slid his thumbs under the waist of her shorts. “Always fighting me.”

Crouching in front of her, he slid the shorts down her legs and off her feet. Eye level with her pussy, he looked up and licked his lips. “I hope you don’t plan on fighting me now.”

He didn’t wait for a reply before he drew his finger up her wet slit. Solenne’s eyebrows knitted and she bit her lip. Her eyes slowly closed and tiny moans filled his ears.

“Don’t close your eyes. Watch me.”
