Shiloh Walker

November 23rd, 2009 (02:10 pm)

I've probably said something a time or two but I wanted to mention Shiloh Walker. She's a really amazing author that has both e-books and paper books. She has a new book coming out on December 1st called Hunter's Need. It is part of a series even though you might be able to read it alone; however I don't recommend that. Not because it isn't amazing alone, but that personally I'm against reading stuff out of order. I like the depth of new characters and getting to know them. She currently has a contest going on for Hunter's Need which is a book about Ana and Duke. http://shilohwalker.wordpress.com/

There are a lot of excerpts of Hunter's Need (which are amazing and addictive). If you want to learn more about the series please read below the cut.

Souring the 7 seass.....and Shiloh Walker ;]

September 20th, 2009 (07:19 pm)
ecstatic

current mood: Euprhoic

I was browsing around my pirate facebook. ( I love pirate language. It makes me so happy without even really trying.) So as I was scouring my facebook. I saw Shiloh Walker's new book Hunter's Need is coming out on December 1st. I don't know if anyone reading this has read any of this series, but it's awesome. You have this world where you have different stuff such as vampires, powerful witches, shapeshifters, cops ;] etc. The whole series is fantastic.
The back of the book:
HIS CHALLENGE

Duke is bitter. A shapeshifter betrayed by the psychic powers of Analise Morell, he cannot forgive her for putting him in the clutches of a feral vampire, but he also can’t shake his desire for her. And when she needs a Hunter, Duke must face his demons—and hers…

HER MISSION

Desperate voices are battering Ana’s psychic shields. A serial killer with extraordinary powers is about to strike again, and the tormented souls of his previous victims are screaming for her help. But Ana can’t understand why they want her…

Their INSATIABLE desire

After what she did to him, Ana is sure Duke must be using her…but if he is, so be it. Ana can’t fight her longing for him, can’t fight the desire that’s haunted her for years. For Duke, every fiber of his soul—both the man and the cougar within—yearns to protect and possess her.…

Excited? I know I am.

BOOKS, Books, books.

current mood: sleepy

Seeing as I'm reading most of the time. I've decided to blog about a few series.

First, I'd like to talk about the Gods of Night Series by Nina Bangs because I said I would spread the word. (I might get a free book from them before the publishing date, and I think that would be wicked awesome.) So this series is about the world ending as the mayans predicted on December 21, 2012. There is this group called the Lords of Time that are going to try to kill all humans. However, the twist to their quest to kill humans is that they can't directly kill them, so they are using other supernatural beings (such as vampires and werewolves) to kill them. Luckily humans have their own set of defenders, The Gods of Night. The Gods of Night also known as the eleven have arrived after 65 million years ago. If you are thinking about your time periods and what animals existed at those times, you realize dinosaurs still existed then. Yes, they were once dinosaurs, but now they are delicious men bent on saving the human race.
The first book in this series is called Eternal Pleasure. It is about one of the eleven, or Gods of Night, who is trying to get used to this new world and the people in it. Ty is slowly getting used to this new world and their vivid emotions while trying to deal with the raging lust between himself and Kelly Maloy. Kelly is just a young woman who is just trying to earn enough money to go to collage and be comfortable. I mean come on a shit load of money for just driving a person around; how hard could that be?
The second book in this series will be coming out on April 28th.

Second, I am currently reading The Lunatic Cafe by Laurell K. Hamilton. Which is the fourth book in the Anita Blake series. This series is about this kick ass 24 year-old woman whose job is to raise zombies, and in her free time, help the 'Spook' squad out determining what preternatural being could have possibly committed a murder, kill rouge vampires, get followed around by the delectable Jean-Claude (Love that name especially when it is said in French), and to hopefully not get killed by all of the preternatural beings that are chasing after her. The first book in this series is called Guilty Pleasures. So far, this series has be beyond addicting (my thursday was spent reading Circus of the Damned,3rd book).

I would go on, but two for now sounds good. And maybe I will blog about more books soon, but honestly I want to get back to The Lunatic Cafe.

Books and Mardi Gras

February 23rd, 2009 (04:17 pm)
current song: Always and Forever by Taylor Swift

Tomorrow is Mardi Gras! So Woo Hoo!

Yeah I'm working on my blog skills. They aren't very good, I know. I'll try to fix that, let's hope.

I watched The Secret Life of Bees this weekend. It was amazing. I love Queen Latifah and Dakota Fanning. The movie was really good/sad. I recommend you watch it if you haven't already!

So, another/real reason I'm blogging, which isn't often (I'll try to work on that), is because I was looking around at people's blogs. I'm starting to love blogs it seems or well I have for a while now; I guess. Anyways! Back on point! So I was looking at Jeaniene Frost's blog, she told everyone about this person who was giving away the Dark Huntress Series. Which made me beyond excited, I just recently bought the first book. Last weekend I was going to buy the next book in the series, but unfortunately the 40% of coupon for one item was only for $20 purchases. I know I was upset but what can you do. So I got off topic again, the contest is at this AWESOME Blog!

Also, I just made a new icon which is the first one in a good month probably. I realized I didn't ever end up making the icon with that picture and remembered that I really wanted to. So I finally did! Woo Hoo! I hope you like it!

Anyways, that's it for now! I'll try to blog about something else soon. <3

OH and if anyone knows how to enable private messages. I will love you forever if you tell me how to get it to work. I've tried. I've asked friends, they didn't know. I've googled. I just got lost. So as I said before, I really would love if you could tell me how.

Time to Brag (And make my journal not look so puny)

Sooo....Today I've made 3 awesome icons and 3 not as awesome but still pretty awesome icons. However, 2 of them will not appear in this post since the challenge has not passed. That just got rid of one awesome and one not as awesome (if you are keeping track).

So the reason behind all of the rest of the icons lies solely on the wonderful amazing Jen. Well...and Melissa De La Cruz for her amazing Blue Blood book series (If you haven't read it. I highly recommend it).

So on with the icons.

      

So those are the icons, which if you include the ones I can't show you makes 6 icons in all. Now, I need to update my site....I'll do that soon. And, then Bridget said something about making her an icon...that may or may not happen. Not quite sure yet. Also maybe - not sure yet - make another icon for the Blood Ties Stills challenge. We'll see about both of those. Might read before bed...well might is an understatement. I will defiantly read some of the book I'm reading...well will start reading because the book I am currently reading I'm not the mood for. I'll see how reading 2 books goes...not sure about that.

A Hilarious Morning to Share!

current mood: amused

Okies, I know this is random, but I thought i would try to make anyone that reads this have a laugh. =p

Anyways so this morning, I woke up at 1am thinking the clock said 7, and I went to bed around midnight. So around one I woke up, and I spased thinking that I was going to be late to school. So I quickly got out of bed and got dressed. I have my brother his morning medicine. Then I went upstairs and I got my keys, back pack, and purse. I quickly went to my car thinking that I was going to be late to school. (School starts at 7:30 but it takes about 30 minutes to get there.) So I drove down the pretty much deserted road, there were a few cars here and there. Normally the first road I drive down isn't very busy, it only gets busy after you hit this one light. So I was going down the normally empty road. I normally eat at Wendy's for breakfast, so I considered stopping there. I decided that later in the day I would just get over not eating breakfast since I was already late. So I went down the road, and i went past that street I mentioned earlier that just suddenly turns bizarrely busy. The road wasn't busy like it normally is, so I was confused and I was like, okay so what's going on? By now the traffic is pretty busy. So I (finally) looked at my clock, and not just a quick glance at the clock, like a full on look, and I realize that it says 1 something. So I am pretty much like, wait a second! How can that be right?! And I take out my cell phone and glance at it, which said it was 1AM, too. So, I was pretty upset right now. I had a ton of adrenaline running through my system, because I thought I was going to be late to school. So I turn around and I go back home, still pretty peeved. But I did go back to bed, after laying in bed for a little while (Hey I only got 1 hour of sleep, and well I happen to love sleep. I don't know about you. Anyways.) So a few hours later, I got up on time with my alarm (I normally press snooze a ton of times until it is 6:30.) So I got up, and had a nice relaxed morning, cleaned up my room a little bit, put away some clean laundry. Then I went upstairs after I got dressed and went to the bathroom. Then the rest of the day, minus my Spanish test, was pretty good. I didn't end up having any homework since I did it during my last class of the day. I even finished a book which was pretty good, but I'm not sure if I like the way this author ends her movies. They are normally pretty upsetting. It is a compromise of a Happy Ending. So I'm not so sure about it. I am still not sure about the ending of the book. OH! I also bought a book today, since the stupid library doesn't have it. I bumped into a lady I know, and talked with her before i had to pick up my brother from school. EVEN BETTER! I got queso blanco from the Mexican restaurant by my house! (If you don't know me. I REALLY love cheese. ♥) The only bad thing about the day was that the dish washer overflowed, but it is fixed!

So that was my Day. ^_^

Being Drunk Isn’t Always Bad

December 31st, 2007 (05:16 pm)
accomplished

current mood: accomplished
current song: Okay I Believe You, But My Tommy Gun Don't by Brand New

                Vicki went home after the night at Henry’s condo, and she went to bed immediately.

Through out the night she dreamt of what happened at Henry’s.  She remembered the look on his face when she said she didn’t want to go to Vancouver with him, and she remembered the look on Mike’s face as he was leaving.

Could she really live with all of this torment?  She had two great guys who liked her and possibly even loved her for who she was.  They didn’t care if she was hardheaded and liked to be the one that always turned out on top, or whether it was in her career or caused her physical trouble.

One has moved on, or at least most of the way.  Another girl has already displayed her liking for him which has honestly made Vicki extremely jealous.    The other wanted to be as close as possible displaying any kind of act of passion.  She knew he loved her enough to respect her wishes and wouldn’t force himself on her.  When the world came to a crashing halt with the death of her best friend or ex-lover he had stopped it.

She couldn’t choose, and it tore at her.  She didn’t want to commit to either.  She would just end up like her mother if that were the case.  They would get sick of her, and just go off with some stupid girl that was either easier to deal with or way younger than she was.  In the back of her mind, she knew that neither of them would never do that, but she could never stop without considering the fact.

Vicki woke up, more confused then she was the night before.  She didn’t know what to do.  She didn’t know what to say.  She didn’t know if she was doing the right thing.  Actually she knew she was doing the wrong thing, but the right thing was distant and unattainable or at least it felt that way.

Vicki got up.  She went into the kitchen, hoping to find something worth eating.  She looked through her fridge and it was virtually empty with the exception of a few containers.  She looked into the freezer hoping for better luck, but again turned up empty handed. 

Vicki sighed, and looked through the cupboards.  She saw junk food, and she hastily grabbed a bag of chips.  She opened it and ate.  She wandered into the living room it was same old room that just stared right back at her.

Vicki heard the door knob open, and in walked Coreen.  The one friend she did truly have.  She would help her, and Vicki cared for her.  Coreen was like a younger sister or a good friend that you have known for a long time.  She was there for Vicki and always tried to give her advice whether or not Vicki would accept it. 

“Hey Coreen.”

“Hi Vicki, what is first from the case load?”  Vicki looked over to her desk that was just a few rooms away.  There were a few cases she was working on that she knew she would need to work on and solve, but Coreen has been through enough for now.

“Coreen, why don’t you go back home and relax.  Yesterday was a very hard day.  I think you should at least get a day off.”  Coreen frowned.  She wasn’t used to Vicki giving many days off.  She assumed that Vicki had a lot to think about about and would probably rather it if Coreen were gone.  As she looked over Vicki, she noticed she didn’t sleep well.  Mike and Henry sure put her through a lot last night. 

“Sure Vicki.”  Coreen walked out of the room she just entered.  She was worried about Vicki, but she wasn’t sure how to help her.  She guessed space would be the best way.

When Coreen left, Vicki decided the best thing to do was to get out of the apartment.  She didn’t want to continue to think about Henry and Mike.  She wanted to forget everything that has happened even if she knew she never could.

Vicki walked down the street.  It was a very sunny day.  The clouds were a nice fluffy white, and the sky was a crystal clear blue.  It was a little windy, but not too much wind that it was cold.

Vicki continued to walk down the street; she saw a nice place to eat and stopped.  She went to get something good to eat.  She ordered a good sized sandwich then left the shop and looked at the passing shops.  But every shop she passed would make her start to make her think about Henry or Mike; shops that didn’t even relate to either of them would suddenly start to relate to them and breathe their essence.

She finally stopped again in front of a store walked in, and went though the walls and walls of alcohol.  It would be good if all of this could just stop.  It would be nice to have a nice relaxing end to the day.  Vicki started to place a few bottles of alcohol in her shopping cart.  She continued until the seat of the cart was full.

She looked at all the bottles amazed she picked so many, but shrugged it off and decided that she could save some for later on in the month. 

She went to the cashier and he rang up the many bottles.  The man looked a little surprised at all the booze she was buying, but shrugged it off.  She was a customer, and he just needed to do his job.  The man wrapped the bottles up for Vicki so they wouldn’t break, and Vicki took them all and started to head home after paying for them.

She got home pretty soon.  The clock read shortly after three.  She must have been walking for a while it had to be only eleven when she left her apartment. 

Vicki shrugged it off, not wanting to bring back any more memories then she had already brought up.

Vicki opened one of the bottles she had bought, not really caring about the label.  She opened the rest of the bags and placed them on her kitchen counter.  She looked at the bottles still marveling that she bought so many.

Vicki walked into the living room and turned on the TV.  She got lost in some mindless program that would keep her mind off of what she should really be dealing with instead of drinking it away. 

Slowly the hours melted together; as did the bottles of alcohol she drank.  She could tell it was getting late.  She went over to the window that was right in front of her desk; barely making it to her desk with proper coordination.  She found the seat after several long minutes of fumbling.  Knowing that once she was in the seat she was safe, and was to most likely not to fall while standing up.

While drinking another bottle of alcohol she watched the sun set.  It looked so beautiful.  The light pink, purple, and orange that were in the sky.  It was so perfect.  She took another sip while admiring the beautiful sky.  Nothing could be greater.  She was on a great buzz and she was watching the sky turn into amazing colors.  Nothing could beat this, not since… she didn’t want to think of that.

Vicki got up from her seat, and was swaying.  She quickly grabbed hold of the desk right next to her.  After the desk, she met the wall, and the wall brought her into the kitchen once more.  Vicki threw away the now empty bottle of alcohol, and grabbed another one up from the counter.  The counter that was once full of bottles, now only housed a few while the bottles that were full on the counter lie empty in the trash can.

Vicki heard a knock on the door; she knew there was no way in hell she could make it to that far.  The couch, maybe, the door was not even possible.  She did go to the couch, but once at the couch she stopped.  She sat down and yelled to the door.

“Come on in.”  She said it with an unmistakable slur in her voice, but she again didn’t care.  The reason behind the slur was the reason she was so nicely out of it right now, not thinking, not caring, just serenely out of it.

The door knob opened again.  Vicki looked up to see who it was.

Henry was standing at the door.  He looked as great as always if not better.

Vicki wasn’t sure of what to say or to do.  She is immensely drunk, and one of the main reasons was standing right in front of her.

“Vicki,” Henry gasped.

Henry had never seen her drunk.  He also had never imagined her this way.  She was always in control no matter what.  She was always responsible no matter what.  And yet, right before Henry’s eyes is a completely intoxicated woman.  One he loves, one he knows would normally never get this way, one he knew was broken up no matter what she admitted.

Henry was speechless and unsure of what to do next.  Many thoughts flooded across his mind.  One thought was just helping Vicki get through this drunken state, another being getting her in bed but not for going to sleep.  Many other thoughts flooded through his mind, but the one that he knew was the right thing to do was to help her.  Why would he want to tease himself with something he knew didn’t want him completely?    Why would he hurt her when she remembers all of this?  Assuming she could remember everything that has happened.  She was so drunk.  He was lost of words and actions. 

Not in a thousand years would he imagine Vicki so torn up that she would drink herself almost to the point of getting a black out, or alcohol poisoning.

Henry slowly started to walk toward Vicki.

“Vicki, are you okay?”

“O’course, I’m… okay.”  Vicki was barely able to form words.  Henry walked over to the couch were Vicki was sitting.

“I think you should have a shower.”

“No!  I want to be… right here.”  Vicki jammed her finger into the couch pointing out where she wanted to be.

“Vicki, please just take a shower.”  Henry slowly lifted up Vicki.

“Ya know.  You s... shouldn’t leave.”  Henry was almost startled by the words.  The words that were coming from Vicki, whom was entirely drunk, was a surprise.  How many drinks did she have anyway?

“And, why is that?”  Henry asked raising a perfect eye brow.

“You don’t…want to, and…and you…don’t need to.”  Vicki got out almost falling out of Henry’s embrace.

“Vicki stop being silly.  You’re drunk and you need a shower.”

“No!  I…I’m fine.  I know… I know what I’m saying.”  Vicki said quickly.

Henry started to bring Vicki to the bathroom.

“Henry, Henry!”  Vicki said obnoxiously loud.

“Yes Vicki?”

“I like you a lot.”  She said almost crying.   “Don’t leave, plea…please.’

“Vicki, you don’t know what you are saying.”  Henry said trying to hold himself together.  He just got sometime from Vicki Nelson, the one who he has fallen in love with, the one that he can share anything with, the one that he truly doesn’t want to leave.

“Yes, I do!  Stop saying… that!”  Vicki yelled starting to get really annoyed at the fact that Henry either didn’t want to agree, or did want to agree but didn’t want to give in.

“Vicki-” Henry stopped and Vicki suddenly turned in his hands.  Vick pushed her lips onto his.

At first Henry started to kiss back, but that was before he remembered that he was going to get her better first. 

Henry broke the kiss.  “Vicki we need to get you in the shower.”

One of Vicki’s arms fell from the back of Henry’s neck, and slowly bushed Henry in a very special place.  Vicki’s hand could feel that hardness that was forming there just from her slight touch.

Vicki took advantage of that.  She tried to kiss him again on the lips, but was stopped right before she made contact.

Henry knew he was going to lose control any second.  He loved Vicki far too much, and he really wanted what she was offering.  But he knew that he shouldn’t take it, he shouldn’t take advantage of her while she was drunk.

“Vicki, please stop it.”

“Henry-”

“Vicki let’s get you into the shower.”

In a few moments, Henry had Vicki in the bathroom.  He knew if he took off her clothes that there would be no way he could stop himself from claiming Vicki.  So he turned the water to a pretty cool temperature.  He walked into the shower with Vicki in toe.

The water brushing against Vicki and Vicki leaning on Henry was one of the best sensations Henry has felt in a long time.  He was in love with the woman he was in the shower with.  He only knew a few ways to get rid of the hangover, and he wanted to help Vicki before it was time for him to return back home.

“Mmm… this feels nice.”  Vicki said softly while leaning into Henry’s shoulder.

“Yes it is.”  Henry replied smiling.

Vicki went to Henry’s lips again trying to get Henry’s attention once more. 

“Vicki, you should be better first.”  Henry said while Vicki was lightly kissing him.

“But…Henry isn’t one way to get rid of a hangover… exercise?”  Vicki asked while trying to slowly pull Henry’s shirt up over his head.

“Vicki-” Vicki removed Henry’s shirt.  Her hands started to roam around his chest and his back.  They all felt so good, so perfect.   Henry enjoyed the feeling too, and didn’t want it to stop.

Maybe giving into Vicki would be a good thing. She will fight until she wins anyway, right?

Henry started to play with the hem of Vicki’s shirt.  Vicki could feel his hand brush against the skin of her waist occasionally and slowly she felt her shirt being lifted above their heads. 

Vicki loved the feeling of Henry’s hands all over her back and her stomach.  It was one of the best feelings Vicki could describe.

Vicki started to unbutton Henry’s pants.  Once the zipper was pulled down the pants, the pants were gone.

“Henry,” Vicki slightly moaned at the feeling of Henry’s hands pulling Vicki’s pants down. “Lets… get out of the shower.” She said opening the door and holding onto Henry still for support.

Henry did as he was told.  Once he left the shower, Vicki only had her bra and underwear on.  Henry brought Vicki to her bed the whole time kissing her and roaming around her luscious mouth.

Vicki was placed on the bed.  Her back felt her messy sheets.

Both Henry and Vicki roamed around each others bodies’ enjoying the complete bliss of what was happening.

Soon, Vicki felt her bra being tugged off and in its place were Henry’s hands.

Henry loved the feeling of Vicki’s skin it was so soft, so warm, just perfect.

Soon Vicki’s hands traveled down to Henry’s silk underwear, and Henry’s responded going to Vicki’s underwear.  They were both quickly out of their underwear, and Vicki was now straddling Henry.

Henry smiled up at Vicki and started to turn them over when Vicki stopped him by holding down his hands.

“I am the one that is supposed to get the most exercise.”  She said it so nonchalantly and so seductively that Henry no longer cared if Vicki got exercise or not.

He quickly flipped them both over and enjoyed the feeling of Vicki.

He could smell the wetness from Vicki, the pure unadulterated desire. This mixed with is own was pure chaos.  He started to play with Vicki’s breast while Vicki was lying down with Henry’s silky hair between her fingers.

Henry teased Vicki for only a few short seconds before thrusting deep inside her making her moan loud.  The room was not quiet until Henry could no longer thrust with an orgasm racking his body.  He could feel Vicki starting to cum under him.

Henry sank his teeth into Vicki’s breast and the orgasm that Vicki started to hit violently.  Vicki was breathing hard and Henry lifted his head from Vicki.  He didn’t want to take too much blood just enough so that Vicki could feel the pleasure of their life forces becoming one for a few short moments.

Vicki now lay next to Henry reveling in all that happened today.

One day can turn from crappy into pure passion in only a few short moments.  At first she was worried of what to think of what just happened between Henry and herself, but then she realized she didn’t care.  She truly did love him whether or not she would say it out loud was another thing, but life with Henry wouldn’t be the same no matter what.  She wants to help out Mike, and she truly does love Mike too.  She would love to be with him for the rest of her life, but Kate also likes Mike.  And in time, she would be a great wife as much as Vicki hated to admit it.  She got over it a little bit, but she was truly happy Mike could move on.  That way Vicki could also move on, knowing that each of the men she loves are both happy and content with their lives.  She should take Henry up on his offer, and get out of Toronto and move to Vancouver with him.

Henry took a calming breath, and quietly said, “Vicki, it is time for me to go the sun will be up in a few short minutes.”

“Henry, I…I…” Vicki wasn’t sure if she could say it out loud she knew she wanted, and that everyone would be happy with the decision in the end.  But the commitment of the act still scared her out of her mind.  Demons are hard to face but to Vicki Nelson she would battle demons any day rather than do what she was doing now in this final act.  “…Henry I want to go to Vancouver with you.”  With the words she spoke she stab her fear a little and finally said the way she felt.

Henry held onto Vicki tight unable to say what he felt.  He finally gets to keep Vicki.  Not the Vicki that is with both Mike and him, but the Vicki that is entirely his.

“I will be back when the sun comes down, dream sweet dreams until then.”  Henry said leaving the room.

He rushed to his house, barely making it to sun down and was in bed and reveling in the fact that he was going to be with Vicki until the end of her time.
