Blood Stoned_Chapter Eight

© 2014 Gem Sivad LLC. All rights reserved. Blood Stoned, A Jinx story Chapter Eight Undoubtedly, sunrise had chased away some of the bats, but the thick ring of ash circling the ambit testified to how many of the blood-sucking creatures had died during the attack. Waiting for the backlash of death magic to hit me, I sprawled limp as a noodle next to Hunter. But nothing more disturbing than the rumble of my empty stomach interrupted the silence. The scrape of Hunter’s rough tongue along my cheek cleared a little more fuzziness from my brain...

Hi everyone.  To all of you fellow U.S. residents, Happy Thanksgiving! The picture on the left was taken from my back door. It’s not great quality, but in case you’ve never seen one, that’s a wild turkey on our deck. Behind it in the yard is an entire flock. I’m not kidding when I say I live where bear, deer, and all kinds of non-domestic critters roam. And now for my snippet. Today, I’m sharing a first look at Cur, an erotic historical western I’ve been working on. Cur Villalobos intended to have the...

Hi everyone. We had our first snow sighting this week although rather than the storm predicted it turned out to be no more than a few flakes to enjoy. For those of  you who received the brunt of the blizzard, take care and stay warm! I’m posting a final snippet from Blood Stoned today. Thank you for all the wonderful feedback each week. Next week I’ll be sharing intro lines from Cur, my erotic western coming out next month.   A boulder the size of a small horse stood in my path, and for want of anything better to focus on, I...

Blood Stoned_Chapter Seven

© 2014 Gem Sivad LLC. All rights reserved. Blood Stoned, A Jinx story Chapter Seven Wincing, I squatted next to the glowing embers and used a stick to stir flames into life. I needed coffee. The fixings were stacked next to the campfire and I helped myself to beans and the grinder. After I’d set the brew to perk, I chose a spot on the log close to the blaze so I could inspect my foot. The thistle had embedded itself beneath two layers of skin, and I had to dig it out. I squinted at the pesky thorn once I had it in hand. Hard to believe such a...

  Good morning.I’m sharing another snippet from Blood Stoned, today. This scene is from Hunter’s POV. After Hunter arranged Maggie to his satisfaction, he lay down behind her and pulled a blanket over them. “My dress is going to get wrinkled,” she murmured. He laughed silently. Her dress was already wrinkled. But her observation gave him an excuse to strip her clothes from her and lay skin to skin. By the time he was finished fussing, she slept. He cradled her in his arms, listening to her every breath, and licking the bite...

Blood Stoned_Chapter Six

© 2014 Gem Sivad LLC. All rights reserved. Blood Stoned, A Jinx story Chapter Six I knew I was dreaming and yet not… ~~~ I don’t know why I’m driving down the road in the middle of the night. I don’t remember harnessing Clarence, and yet my trusted friend is pulling me toward an unknown destination. We come to the foothills leading to the bluff behind my house, and I pull on the reins to stop, and then jump from the buggy. Quickly, I climb the rocky slope to answer the call that summons me. A breeze fans my cheeks, carrying the awful...

Brrrr… it’s chilly outside with wintery skies. Hope all is well with everyone as we go into November. I’m sharing a snippet from Blood Stoned Chapter Two. If you’re interested in reading the whole story, I’ve posted it in installments on my blog this week. (Two chapters to add before the end).   “Maggie, move,” Myrtle shrieked as the beast galloped toward me from across the lot. After I stumbled backward, fell, and landed on my rear in the dust, I had no chance of reaching the fence before the bull reached...

Blood Stoned_Chapter Five

© 2014 Gem Sivad LLC. All rights reserved. Blood Stoned, A Jinx story Chapter Five I was more than a little muzzy-headed. Too many things had happened too quickly. I closed my eyes, the better to concentrate and understand the day’s events. Something at the edge of my mind nagged me for attention. The elusive thought had begun to irritate me. The first healing at the Patrick farm had been enough to tax my ability. I sighed, remembering the surly beast as he’d pawed the ground and charged at me—his thank you for saving him. Unbidden, a giggle...

Blood Stoned_Chapter Four

© 2014 Gem Sivad LLC. All rights reserved. Blood Stoned, A Jinx story Chapter Four   I drifted in an in-between place where there was no measure of time. Maybe I’d finally found my qi. The thought cheered me up. I was alive but not really aware of much for a while after Hunter brought me to his camp. He held me and, from time to time, stroked my neck and licked my cheek. It would have been funny if I hadn’t been swaddled in a coarse woolen blanket that made me itch all over.  Cat-like, he couldn’t resist rubbing his...

Blood Stoned_Chapter Three

© 2014 Gem Sivad LLC. All rights reserved. Blood Stoned, A Jinx story   Chapter Three Play Time   Obviously, contact with Hunter had benefited my magic. As if I’d been doing it all of my life, I created a big fireball, directed it to the center of the rock pool, and dropped it. When it landed with a hiss, steam drifted up from the water.  I tested the temperature, not wanting to cook myself any more than slide into a frigid pool. “Ahhh…” Satisfied that I’d achieved perfection, I jumped in, deliberately making a big splash. As I...
