Second Nature

Lethal assassin, Grant Kendal, is hiding away on a deserted island trying his best to put his deadly past behind him. When Thalia Brezlin washes ashore, beaten, broken and hell-bent on revenge, something other than the familiar darkness is awakened inside the washed up hitman. She’s feisty, strong, beautiful and has a kick ass aim with a pistol. When her past catches up with his, Grant and Thalia are drawn into the underworld of human trafficking, a place where evil thrives on stolen innocence and nothing escapes alive. Only the love they find in each other can save them, but what if you don’t believe in love?

Grant and Thalia’s story takes you deep into the underworld of human trafficking and the monsters that live there are very real.

Interview: Welcome D, make yourself comfortable and thanks for stopping by!

Anything you can tell us about yourself that your readers may not know.

Hmmm. I have a fear of heights, but scuba diving with sharks fascinates me.

How long have you been writing and who influenced you?

Officially since 2010 but honestly I’ve been concocting crazy stories for as long as I can remember. My first notable writing achievement was a poetry contest my 4th grade teacher entered me into and I won 3rd place with a poem about a frog on a log. Haha. My mom still has that framed.

Linda Howard and Maya Banks

What inspires you while you were writing?

I find a lot of inspiration from random news articles and conversations with friends. Life is often stranger than fiction. Sometimes the news is perfect fiction. And I often warn people that anything they say can and probably will end up in a book.

Where is your favorite place to write?

I have a virtual writer’s nest built around one end of my sofa. It’s the only thing that works for me.

What makes you laugh/cry?

Hmmm. Laugh? It’s usually one of my dogs. Animals in general can be so funny. Put them in the same room with my hubs and it’s a non-stop laugh fest. He has a twisted sense of humor. What makes me cry? I don’t tend to cry much but when I do it’s usually happy tears over something amazing someone has done for me. Sad tears are saved for amazing books and movies.

What’s the last movie you watched and loved?

The Avengers. Loved that movie. Hilarious! And OMG Chris Hemsworth is flippin’ hot! Add in Chris Evans as Captain America and um…yeah there’s a ménage story just waiting to be written! Haha.

One of your favorite quotes.

“I’ve become quite comfortable with being misunderstood.” ~ (unknown)

Top three things on your bucket list

Excerpt:
First Kiss

The sunlight sparkled like diamonds against the drops of water that beaded across Grant’s broad chest and raced along the cuts and dips between his washboard abs. His dark blue board shorts, soaked and clinging to his equally muscled thighs, hung low on his hips. A thin trail of golden curls raced between the hard lines of his narrow hips, disappearing beneath his waistband. Only a blind woman would miss the outline of his perfectly defined erection. Holy sin on a stick, he is packing.
His arms and legs moved with the grace of a jungle cat stalking its prey, the tight strands of muscles bunching and stretching beneath his skin with every step. His right hand was wrapped tight around the black grip of a pistol, the thick tendons in his wrist flexing as he tightened and loosened his grip. She followed the ripple of movement to his rounded shoulder, his neck, and then up to the chiseled lines of his face. Her lungs seized with feminine lust, mixed with a healthy dose of fear as she locked eyes with the lethal beast inside him. He’s going to kill me.
The fire in Grant’s eyes blazed with a heat as tangible as the sun’s rays beating relentlessly against her skin. She didn’t know the first thing about this man, other than the fact that he was dangerous and locked onto her like a fast moving freight train. He hadn’t hurt her yet, but that didn’t mean he wouldn’t kill her. Still, she couldn’t make herself move or even look away. Something inside her was drawn to the beast residing within the man; to the absolute power and strength that wrecked her senses.
Paralyzed, she was powerless to resist as his hard, lean body crashed into hers, trapping her against his hot, wet skin. His hands tangled in her hair, his desperate grip holding her captive to his assault, his lips crushing against hers with frantic need.

Excerpt

Grant meets Thalia

He re-covered her bare leg and reached for the top of the sheet. Ignoring her wordless protests, he peeled down the white cotton sheet, sparing only a quick glance at her plump, bare breasts as he examined the cut over her ribs. “The good news is the swelling above your eye has gone down enough so that you no longer look like a science fiction experiment. The bad news is your leg is infected. You need a doctor.”

“No. No doctors. I can…”

“Yeah, I figured as much.” Grant watched her struggle against her bonds. She froze when he pressed his hand to her bare chest. “I said relax. Do you want me to untie you?”

Her eyes darted up to the cord around her wrists in another wordless plea. “Well, see, I only have one problem with that.” Grant smirked and pointed to the cut on his cheekbone. “Seems you have one hell of a right hook.”

At least she had the decency to look contrite as she studied his face. He knew it was an act. She would fight balls to the wall as soon as he released her. He counted on it, in fact. “That’s okay, I don’t need an apology. I know you didn’t mean it. You were pretty out of it last night.” He reached for the knot above her head but stilled, searching out her gaze. “You won’t do it again, will you?”

He almost laughed at the puppy dog eyes she gave him as she silently shook her head. Well, here goes the neighborhood. He took a little longer than necessary to work the knot free, watching as her muscles bunched and coiled. He could almost feel the energy rolling off her body as she prepared to strike. It was one of the things he missed about his job. Reading the people he was hunting, feeling the energy around him shift and move as the final fatal scene unfolded.

One last tug and the cord fell free. She pulled her hands down to her chest and calmly worked at the strands until they slid from her wrists. Almost teasingly, Grant shifted and turned his back to her. She certainly didn’t disappoint. Striking like a cobra, she jackknifed from the mattress, looping the cord over his head and wrapping it around his throat.

With a knee in his back, she pulled hard against the cord. Grant had to admit, he’d underestimated her strength a bit. The hand he’d slipped between his neck and the cord began to lose feeling as the cord cut into his palm. He was beginning to think twice about playing games with this chick. With a twist and a shove he was out of her snare and had his hands wrapped around both her wrists. He dodged her knee as she shoved it at his groin, but he couldn’t hold back the curse when she bit down on the back of his hand.

“Goddammit!” She was like a damn fossa mongoose; lean, mean, and quick as hell! Grunted curses filled the air as he hoisted her from the cot and then pushed her back into the mattress. No more games with the rabid carnivore. Her arms pinned beside her head, he straddled her hips and hooked his ankles over her shins to keep her from kneeing him in the back. “Enough,” he growled as he hovered above her.

Her nostrils flared as she dragged in a series of frantic breaths. Her skin, which had been so pale and gray, was now flushed pink with excitement. He watched as her silver eyes flared with heat, her pupils dilating to encompass the hypnotizing swirls of gray. Grant was astonished. Every misconception he’d had of her being a broken victim flew right out the window. Christ, she was playing him. And she was enjoying it every bit as much as he was.

His cock, hard and aching, pressed against her pelvis as the heat from her naked body washed over him. He was suddenly aware of her bare breasts pressed against his chest and found himself wishing he’d decided to go shirtless that morning. Her pink lips parted, her warm breath washing over him as their eyes locked. He fought hard against the need to kiss those lips, to slide his tongue into her hot, wet mouth and devour the taste of pure wildness that radiated from her soul. She didn’t need a snare to capture him. He felt himself being drawn in like a bee to an exotic wildflower.

His body warred with his mind as his head dipped a fraction closer. His instincts screamed for him to back away from the edge of the cliff. He knew what she was doing. It wouldn’t work, but damn if he wasn’t tempted to call her bluff.
