I’m a hard as nails person . . . okay, I’m a marshmallow when it comes to romance. I wanted my heroine to be tough, and she is. However, Charmeine has a heart of love so big it could fill oceans. I wish I was like that!
Lots of love, Emily
Tabbruis’ grasp on her shoulder was firm, but she could almost feel his concern. She turned and looked into his deep green eyes and melted. “I’m sorry, you are right. I’m mad because with all my training, I didn’t get to fight him. Damn it to Hell! I would have loved to have taken him down a notch or two.”
Tabbruis started to laugh, shook his head and smiled wide. He asked with his eyebrows up in a quizzical way, “Just a notch or two?”
They both burst out laughing.
He took her arm and asked, “May I?”
Tabbruis took her arm in his hands. It was warm and delicate. He wrapped it around his broad shoulder and neck. Then he smoothly lifted her legs up by the backs of her knees.
Charleen instantly felt safer in his arms. With a sweet and soft voice, she whispered, “Thank you, for rescuing me,” and she laid her head on his big, strong chest.
Tabbruis could not believe how beautiful this woman was. When her arm swiped his neck, his flesh became flushed. He had her in his arms, and his heart started to beat harder. He hoped upon hope the light he saw during the attack was indeed lightning.
His mind ran over the fact Light-Bearers and Blood-Hunters were enemies. Closing his eyes, Tabbruis prayed silently, God, please do not let her be a Light-Bearer.
I picked this video because it really makes me feel empowered, and it ROCKS!

Connections are tough.
We fill our lonely days and nights with friends, family, careers and hobbies.
Finding a true connection that captures those feelings beyond our normal hustle and bustle lives, is what I wanted to convey in this passage between
Charmeine and Tabbruis.
Lots of love, Emily
Charmeine stood and walked past him to the railing of the terrace overlooking the harbor. Her long golden hair whipped around her shoulders. Keeping her eyes on the harbor she confided, “I was found in 1997 not having any memory before that. However, I’ve been alone.”
She smiled in remembrance. “I met Shane, but he was like a baby brother to me. I sort of took care of him.” Shaking her head, she smiled. “He was always getting into one mess after another.”
Wiping her eyes, she slowly turned away from Tabbruis’ penetrating gaze, “Loneliness . . . it’s torture in a way. No. It’s worse, because at the end of the torture, you have rest.”
She rotated her body around to look him in the eyes and professed, “There is no rest from one minute of loneliness because it fills your being and wraps your heart so tight; it doesn’t want to beat because it just hurts too much to go on.”
He closed his eyes and thought, My God! She has just described all the centuries I have been on Earth in that one sentence. He looked up at the moonlit, star-filled mosaic sky, and thought, God, what do I do? Please help me?
Her heart felt hopeful and professed, “I know Blood-Hunters and Light-Bearers are supposed to destroy each other, but I am hopeful you and I are . . . unique.”
He looked at her intently and thought, What is she saying?
She felt his stare and kept her head toward the harbor and declared, “A Blood-Hunter and a Light-Bearer we may be, but even if you do not want to admit it . . . there is a link between us.”
I LOVE Frank Sinatra – his voice mesmerizes me . . .
and this song is the one of my favorites!
