Witch Blood by Tara West: If Sophie Sinora survives tonight, she’s sure to be grounded for life. But that’s the least of her problems. She’s thousands of miles from home, people are not who they seem, and she doesn’t know friend from foe. She needs to keep her hot witch boyfriend, with an even hotter temper, from losing his cool before the incubus finds them and steals their souls. And she’d thought she was having a bad week when she sprouted that ginormous pimple on her nose. If only her life was that simple.

Say Forever is Live

Hey, readers. I know you’ve been waiting for the final installment in the Something More series, so here it is. Thanks so much for all of the great reviews and downloads of the other books in this series. This book is the longest so far, at over 70K words, so it’s priced a dollar higher at 3.99. I sure hope you enjoy it.

In the meantime, I’m working on a fun paranormal adult romance trilogy and book six in my Whispers series. I have to delay book six’s release until January or February. So sorry. After publishing five books this year, I’ve run out of time, but don’t worry, I’ll definitely continue more of Sophie, Krysta and AJ.

Now without further ado, here’s Say Forever!

Christina
I love Andrés so much, more than anyone I’ve ever loved before, yet there are days when I don’t know if I want to scream, swear, or fall to pieces. We’re trying to plan a future together, but our families won’t leave us alone. What’s worse is I can see Andrés is not happy.

They say love trumps all hurdles, but some days I wonder will “our” love trump “our” hurdles? Then I look into Andrés’s sensual smile and passionate gaze and I fall in love all over again.

Andrés
When I told Christina I would love her forever, I meant every word. The nightmares are back, and I don’t know how to stop them, but I have to be strong for her. This pressure from my family and my job feels like a noose around my neck, but I will do whatever it takes to give Christina the life she deserves. She’s everything to me, and I won’t lose her.

This is the third and final installment in the Something More Series.

Cover Reveal, Say Yes, Something More Book Two

SAY YES is coming!!! Mark your calendars! Release date is October 10!

Say Yes by Tara West, Something More Book Two

***Warning: this book contains graphic language, sex, and mature situations. Not intended for young adult readers.***

Andrés, why can’t it be enough that I love you? That I want to spend forever with you. Why must you expect so much more? I’m not ready for marriage and a family. I don’t know if I ever will be.

Christina, I need to know that what I’m putting into this relationship isn’t all for nothing. To me, you mean everything. But I won’t be your stepping stone. Because as much as it would kill me, if you refuse to commit to something more, I will walk away.

Will Christina ever be ready? Will Andrés stay or walk? Will their love endure or is it doomed before they even have a chance?

Chapter One

“I haven’t seen you in a while, Andrés. How have you been?”

            My hands go clammy as I give the military doctor a blank stare. Why did I think it would be a good idea to come here? Oh, yeah, closure. That’s what I kept telling myself on the drive to the VA hospital. I wanted to let Doctor Barnes know I don’t need to see him anymore.

            Because I don’t. I’m better now.

            I wipe my hands on my jeans, trying to get rid of the excess moisture. It must be hot in here. I have no reason to sweat. No reason at all.         

            “I figured as much.” He crosses one leg over his knee, looking casual as he leans back against the upholstered leather chair, but there’s still that expectant look in his eyes. Even through the glare of the doctor’s glasses, I can sense the man’s impatience. “How else have you been?”

            This shrink is never one to waste time. He’s not afraid to pressure me to get to the point, which is one reason I have always liked him.

            I take a sip from my water bottle, clear my throat, and then answer. “I haven’t had a bad dream in months.”

            After the roadside bomb that flipped our truck and killed my best friend in Afghanistan, I couldn’t escape the nightmares that plagued me. Although the dreams slowed down after I met Christina, they completely stopped three months ago, after my best friend’s wife, Letty, contacted me on Facebook. She’d written me a long letter apologizing for blaming me for James’s death. She’d even invited me to San Antonio for her youngest son’s birthday party. It seems I just needed Letty’s forgiveness for the nightmares to stop.  

            “That’s great news.” The doctor smiles wider this time.

            I can tell this smile is genuine, and I release a pent up breath of air.

            Then the doctor hits me with the next question. “Are you adjusting to life as a civilian?”

            “Oh, yeah.” I nod before sticking one clammy hand in my pants pocket. The little velvet pouch is still there, and though it takes up no more room than a wadded-up tissue, it feels heavy. The weight of it presses into my thigh. What’s worse is, the strain is somehow tethered to an invisible noose that is wrapped around my neck. Each day the pouch feels heavier, and the noose feels tighter, so tight I feel I may suffocate from the pressure. “I’m learning how to take over my uncle’s businesses.” I say the words I rehearsed on the drive over. “Working out and….” I pause and finger the pouch again, “I met a girl.”

            I shift in my seat, trying to suppress my arousal as I envision last night in bed, when Christina’s long auburn hair was fanned around my thighs. I can’t forget the expression in her emerald eyes when she looked up at me, flashing that seductive smile, right before she took me in her mouth.

            SayYes.flat.small“You sound hesitant to talk about her. Are you having second thoughts?”

            “No, never.” I vehemently shake my head before I force myself to stop.

            Doctor Barnes has that look in his eyes again. Damn, he’s too smart for his own good. I remind myself I need to find a new shrink, maybe one a little less observant. Maybe one who nods and agrees with everything I say.

            I avert my gaze, but I can’t escape the feeling Doctor Barnes can see through me, straight into my soul. But I came here to talk, didn’t I? No. I came here to tell the doctor I no longer need him, as soon as I get help with this one little problem.

            I look the doctor in the eyes, take a shaky breath, and slowly exhale, even though the invisible noose is making it harder to breathe. “Ever since we moved in together, my family has been pressuring us to get married.”

            The doctor gives me a pointed look. “How do you feel about marriage?”

            I answer without hesitation. “I love her. I’ll do anything to marry her. I even had a ring made, but I don’t think I have the nerve to pop the question.”

            I shouldn’t have asked Tia for my grandmother’s ring. That was a bad idea. A very bad idea. We’ve only been together six months, and I’ll scare her off. Then I remember Tia wagging a finger in my face and clucking her tongue, telling me the church frowns on sex out of wedlock. saywhen,web

            I don’t want to offend God, but I don’t want to lose Christina, either. Her parents were unloving and abusive. How could she possibly be ready for marriage and family after what she’s been through?     

            Slowly, I pull the velvet pouch out of my pocket, loosen the drawstring, and dump the ring in my palm. I hold the shining silver band beneath the soft glow of the overhead lights.

            “The emeralds came from my grandmother’s wedding band,” I say to the doctor as I press the ring between the tips of my fingers. “They’re the same color as Christina’s eyes.”

            “You said you don’t have the nerve to ask her,” Doctor Barnes asks in an annoyingly impartial monotone. “Why?”

            “It’s just….” I swallow against the tightening knot around my throat as I place the ring back in the pouch. “I’m afraid she won’t say yes.”

 

 Book one, Say When, is available now on Kindle, iTunes and Nook and in print.
