Sample Sunday – The Beast Within

My publisher, Lazy Day Publishing, on October 19, 2011 will be releasing an anthology titled INDULGENCE.  This will include 11 (myself included) authors from Lazy Day contributing to the anthology.  I am excited and honored to be a part of this first ever print book from LD.

The Beast Within is my contribution:

Siona spent the last sixteen years in the presence of Alston, most of that time as the sexy magician’s assistant.  Performance after performance, doing as he commanded, all the while, keeping her feelings veiled from the only man she ever loved. No longer able to deny them what she knew they both wanted, they share a brief moment of passion and a promise of unimaginable pleasures, bringing them to a turning point in their relationship.

After years of following his lead, the shape shifter finally resolves to call forth the beast within her.   Although Alston voices his concerns, Siona pushes his fears and pleas to put off the transformation to the wayside.  Will overconfidence in her control of the beast be the cost her the life of her one true love?  Will she be able to pull herself from the dark corner the jaguar has thrust her into in time to save Alston?  Or will the creature who saved her life as a child, destroy all her hopes and dreams of a happy future with Alston?


Alston walked between the multitudes of tents, making his way to the one darkened trailer within the invisible boundaries surrounding Cirque Romani’s camp.  No matter the darkness engulfing the tin building, he knew Siona would be just past the door, preparing for tonight.  If nothing else, the woman was predictable.  Predictable, beautiful, and out of his league.  Nightly, he watched her transform from amazing woman to beautiful creature.  The patrons came to see his magic, to see him bring forth exotic animals that could only be seen in places of their fantasies.  Little did they know; however, he’d not been the enigmatic one to bring forth such wonders before their eyes.  No, the true magic weaver was his beautiful assistant, Siona. 


Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Reading!
