New Release- Kayla’s Fire – Natasza Waters

The book we’ve all been waiting for! The conclusion to the Ghost and Snow White’s Story!

Kayla stands in the eye of a hurricane. Past and present are on a collision course, and her tactical experience won’t save her. She’s the target on a serial killer’s radar. The media brews a storm of confusion, pointing at the warriors stationed at Coronado. To catch the killer, she has to relinquish hope, and the Navy SEAL protecting her.

Navy SEAL Thane (Ghost) Austen is forced to choose between Kayla and his duty. If he deploys, she’ll die. If she returns to Canada, he’ll lose the woman who cracked his armor, and exposed his heart. Her abusive past is holding her hostage. There are two battles to be won: to light Kayla’s Fire and extinguish the Shark’s. Life broke them both in half, but together they’re whole, and he’ll walk through hell to keep her. The conclusion to Ghost and Snow White’s fight to survive in, “A Warriors Challenge” series.

My review:
Captain Thane Austen and Kayla Banks. The Ghost and Snow White… The Ghost had lost his soul long ago. Too many years of seeing the worst that humanity had to offer had encased his heart in ice. Until he met a beautiful brunette with fire in her eyes.
The fire in Kayla’s eyes came from Hell. She brought it back with her when she left. Kayla had lived through hell and survived, but that was all she did. Survive…

“Life broke us both in half, but together we’re whole. That’s what I’ve been trying to tell you with my actions. You’re my forever, Kayla.”
In Code Name Ghost, Thane and Kayla’s love began to bloom, but will the bud survive the bitter storm that is their past?
The Shark wants Kayla’s blood, PTSD wants her mind, and two men vie for her heart. Through danger and passion, mystery and evil, watch the lives of these two warriors as they search for love and peace.

Kayla’s Fire is laced with action and adventure, but the real story lies in the hearts and minds of its heroes. A gut-wrenching, emotional journey, that can’t be missed.

Natasza Waters runs your emotions through the wringer in Kayla’s Fire. Every time you think the ship of Thane and Kayla’s love is finally on the right path, wind filling the sails and pushing them forward. Another storm comes along, rocking the boat, casting them toward the rocks, throwing them so far off course, only a compass can lead them home. But, thank God, they have that compass. It’s called love, and it always points toward home.

Kayla’s fire will burn down everything in their path and one day it will be “Fair winds and following sea,” If they can just live that long…

Returning from deployment to find Kayla is his new tactical specialist poses a challenge, one he’s never faced. When the defiant beauty with haunted eyes becomes a serial killer’s target, the Commander has the excuse he needs to close ranks around her.

Ack! It’s From Me to You Friday!

OMG! I wonder if I can put this word count down for #NaNo? No probably not!

It’s been a busy month. I decided to try NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month – I’d never heard of it until last year so I can’t be the only one!) for this year. It runs the month of November and the goal is to write a novel of at least 50,000 words.

I went past 24,000 on Sunday so I’m hoping that I can meet the goal! Life of course gets in the way.

I took a whole day to create an author website. I like it and I hope you do too! Go take a peek!

I had a new release on Saturday November 2, 2013 which was exciting!

For generations Levi’s family had guarded a sacred glen in the mountains. Still far from man this isolated area was a favorite spot of his grandfather. Levi grew up listening to his tales and fell in love without ever having stepped foot there.

Now Levi’s family, led by his grandmother, wanted to sell the land. With only his grandfather and Levi against it, Levi has to prove to the rest of the family why they needed to continue their guardianship. Believing in his grandfather’s tales despite himself, Levi went armed with his camera and his well-known expertise behind the lens and headed out for proof.

Providing that proof and protecting the secrets of the glen from the world, Gaia needs to convince Levi to continue that protection. Daphnaie, the embodiment of his every dream, is sent to show him why, stealing his heart in the process to save her world.

Available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Secret Cravings, All Romance and other places I haven’t ferreted out yet!

Along with the excitement of having a new release 🙂 I have also had two rejects 😦 . I had a non fiction piece submitted that was rejected. If you would like to read it, it is on the tab under Books by Beverly. My other, Saint Nicholas was rejected also. The nice thing with that one was that it was rejected within a couple of weeks of submission. I’m reworking it and getting ready to resubmit.

Try try again! Persistence is bound to pay off sooner or later!

So when I saw that it was my day to post-I’ve given the spot away to many other authors for tours & spotlights-it was too late to do that!

So, here’s a peak at my #NaNo work. It involves dragons (anyone surprised?) and I put it up as Heaven at the End of the World. It takes place about 100 years after mankind has managed to self destruct and slowly begin to rebuilt.

But beware! If you’re not 18+ don’t read any further!

Ari was going to kill his brothers if the pleasure of riding Hope through her change didn’t kill him first. He hadn’t planned it, but a change required so much sexual energy that it was usually done with the Weyr. With his brothers there and Hope flying high much like a dragoness daring the strongest to take her, his instinct kicked in. Ari could no more have prevented the change than he had of turning back the sun.

Hopefully his brothers had caught plenty of game. Ari would rather Hope was out for that blood rather than his. Ari dropped his head to her chest, his tongue sneaking out to lick a perky cherry colored nipple. It was plump and just as tasty to him. He could feel another wave of pleasure cresting. Ari had never realized that the male shared the change. He might already be a dragon but he was sharing each wave of heat as it crested. Probably nature’s way of making sure the dragon never forgot what their mate went through to share their life.

He probably should have thought it through. In the Weyr there were chains to hold them down as the dragon’s mate went through the metamorphosis. Ari sure hoped his brothers could hold Hope down. None of them had ever seen a change but the chains were there in the chamber, so there must be a reason for it.

Ari suckled Hope’s nipple in time to the pulsing of her passage around him. Ari thrust, the feel of Hope and the heat on his cock enough to keep him hard even as he again coated Hope’s womb with seed. It had to be all part of the magic of the change. Even he, with his dragon stamina would have been done by now.

Instead, his excitement kept building until he felt like he was going to burst.

“Ari what’s happening to me?”

“Hope, love, would you share the rest of your life with me?” Despite the pleasure Ari could see roll through her, Hope rolled her eyes at him.

“Do you think I would have stayed after your brothers scared the heck out of me if I wasn’t planning that?” Ari smiled, the sarcasm of her comment lightening his heart.

“Well, did you want hatchlings?”

Hope moaned, shuddering. Ari crested again on a wave of pleasure with her.

“No. I want babies.” His brothers laughed. Ari could not wait until they met their mates. They would find out there was nothing to laugh about.

“Hatchlings are babies.” Ari felt slightly offended. He had been a hatchling. Hope giggled.

“Fine, hatchlings would be fine.” Hope moaned, “as long as they were yours.”

Ari kissed her, happy with her answer. “Well a human and a dragon have only one way to have hatchlings.”

“Steal someone else’s?” Ari heard Crag snickering at Hope’s answer. He kissed her, grinning down at her.

“NO. The human has to change into a dragon.” Hope stilled, a frown starting to form in her eyes and then she arched in pleasure, panting beneath him.

“So, that’s what is happening to me?” Hope shuddered, squeezing Ari inside her. “No asking, no explaining,” Hope cried out, moaning, “just change me with pleasure?” Ari groaned, the wave of sensation snaking along his backbone.

“Oh, oh, yes, yes.” Ari pumped into Hope going wild at the sensations they were being bombarded with. “Oh god, so much pleasure Hope.” Hope screamed her body taunt underneath him. “I didn’t plan it Hope, I just couldn’t stop it. I didn’t even realize I had started the change but once,” Ari groaned into Hope’s neck as she writhed beneath him, “it had started I couldn’t stop it.”

Sooo…that is where I am picking up at today. Ermm, yes it has changed into something I hadn’t planned, but that, I’m finding, is the fun of #NaNo!
