Threebeaches

Hello, guys! I’m super excited about my upcoming release, Three Southern Beaches, with Kathleen Brooks and Robyn Peterman! I hope you’ve pre-ordered your copy for only 99cents!  Read the first 30 pages of my story here: http://christie-craig.com/dangerous.html 

This week, I’d like to bring back an author I’ve had on Laugh, Love, Read before so she can share a little bit with you about her latest release, Cupid’s Last Stand, which came out last week.  It’s a part of a wonderful, sexy and fresh series with tattooed men, feisty heroines and…angels!  Stick around and comment, I’m giving away five copies to some lucky winners next week.

Welcome Shauna Allen!

Thanks, Christie!  So thrilled to be here!

Well, like Christie said, I very proudly released my newest book last week.  Cupid’s Last Stand is the fourth and final novel in my Cupid Chronicles series, and I’m really proud of it.  I might even admit it’s my favorite book of the series, though I don’t want to make my other book babies jealous.  But, I love it so much for a few reasons…

First, I brought back a much beloved character from a previous book.  Tristan was just a wounded teenage boy in The Halo Effect, and I think I lost my heart to him a little back then.  I knew, almost right away, that he would be getting the last book in the series.

Second, I adore first love stories, and that’s exactly what I gave Tristan and the girl who never left his heart, Darby.  If you follow the series, their meeting is foretold at the end of Wounded Wings.

And, last, while it’s a little bittersweet to be writing the last book of the series, I think I went out with a bang, and I made sure to include glimpses of all my past couples and angels.

So, like I said, this book is about first love.  I’ll bet all of us remember our first…for good or bad.  But, I’ll bet with some degree of nostalgia.  I certainly do.  I’ve often contended if I hadn’t met my husband, I would’ve probably ended up with mine.  And, luckily for Tristan Blackfeather and Darby Deveraux, their love is meant to be.  A match made in Heaven.

Here’s an excerpt of one of my favorite scenes:

Darby’s eyes dipped to the carpet between her feet and her voice came out nearly a whisper. “Just because I never said it back to you doesn’t mean I didn’t feel the same way.” She used a hand to grip her temples. “God. I feel like an idiot. That was ten years ago.” She met his eyes, her expression fierce. “I was just a girl, Tristan. A shy girl who had a hard time saying what she felt and wanted. But I loved you. I loved you and you absolutely broke my heart. Is that what you want to hear?”

“No.” He reached out and brushed her cheek. “Not at all.”

Clearly emotional, she tipped her head down. “Well. It’s ancient history, right?”

His heart turning slow circles in his chest, he knelt on the floor and crawled until he was between her knees and cradling her face between his hands. “It doesn’t feel like history to me.” He pressed his lips to hers. “Far from it.” Drawing her bottom lip into his mouth, he suckled, making her moan. He took a chance and leaned in, cupping the back of her head to hold her close while he tenderly bathed her with kisses. Forehead, eyelids, the tip of her nose, cheeks, chin. Finally, her mouth, where she met him with a soft sound of acquiescence deep in her throat as she slid her tongue against his and they explored each other gently. Unhurriedly.

He dipped to her jaw. Then her throat, following the smooth column of her neck down to where it met her shoulder. “God, Darby,” he breathed against her skin. “It’s like I’ve been here with you this whole time.”

“Why?” she keened softly as she gripped a fistful of his T-shirt, yanking. “Why did you have to leave me?”

Were those tears in her voice?

Slowly, he drew back to take in her face. Her eyes fluttered open, and sure enough, tears were pooled in the corners and sadness exuded from every pore of her body. He pressed his forehead to hers. “I’m so sorry, baby. How can I make it better?”

She paused, her hot breath puffing against his cheek, her hands still clenching his shirt at his waist as she appeared to wrestle with something. Eventually, she seemed to come to a decision, and she released his shirt, only to slide beneath to the bare skin of his back and tug him into an embrace. “Don’t shatter me like that again.”

    • Er:imEvcdenteiente que o mal está em se eleger bestas para ocupar cargos que deviam ser desempenhados por gente bem formada e não corrupta. Infelizmente o populismo faz com que muita dessa gente ocupe cargos para os quais não está preparada e depois saiem bujardas inaceitaveis como estas.Estranho é o silencio dos partidos no qual estas pessoas foram eleitas. Deviam dizer-lhes, Tu nunca mais és eleito em listas nossas.um abraço

    • You actually make it appear so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I’d never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m taking a look aheadfor your next submit, I will attempt to get the hold of it!

  1. I married my high school sweetheart. He was my first real love. My very first was a boy named David in the first grade. He broke me flowers.

  2. Just have to say how much I love Cupid’s Last Stand. The entire series is so good! I am sad it has ended, but I have no doubt that Shauna will continue to keep readers hooked with her future books!

  3. My first love was my high school boyfriend, we were together five years but we weren’t meant to be. Not long after we broke up, I met the man who has been my hubby for 8 yrs this month.

  4. I already have a copy of this book and, wow, is it ever good! I hate to see this series end, but what a way to go out. Hot, hot, hot. 🙂

  5. I met my true love when I was a senior in high school. At that point in my life I had sworn off guys (you know they are all jerks), but my best friend was not having that so she played cupid and decided that I needed to meet her boyfriends friend Wade. I told her that no I am not going out with anyone, unless they had rock god long hair and were a nice guy. A few weeks later she tricked me and and set up a meet with him. He had long blond ROCK GOD hair and well from the first moment I met him I was in love or infatuated anyway. I was so shy I wouldn’t even talk to him that first day! But from that moment on he was all I could talk about! Two weeks later we had an official date, well to make my long story shorter. We met 28 years ago and just celebrated our 26 year anniversary! By the way he did cut his hair, guess he had to grow up a little lol and yes I still miss his long locks!

  6. Thanks for all the wonderful comments, guys! It’s awesome to hear about all your first loves! And, Monica, I have a thing for long haired guys, too! When I met my hubby, he had hair almost longer than mine! <3

  7. My first love would have been when I was 13 and I was so in love with this boy. I was kind of love struck on him all the way through high school but it didn’t go any where It was one sided I think. I haven’t seen him in many years and don’t really know where he is at now.
