‘Semper tua ero’ “Mactus” (LightBearers Series) #2 by Emily Guido

 

 

11-5-2013-9-31-32-amSo I read “Charmeine” the first book in this series, I fell in love with the story and the characters.

Dover-CastleThey are in Romania now, they had to leave NYC because a BloodHunter was after Charmeine. Tabbruis has his home there and feels they will be safe there with Dimitri. We meet new characters in this book that I also fell for.

A couple big secrets revealed throughout this book.

A family finally back together have to fight with their lives to stay that way.

Will they be strong enough to bring down the Elders?

Does bringing Charmeine to Romania bring her closer to death?

When I wasn’t reading, I was wondering what the characters were up to! The author does such a great job with personalities of the characters I get emotionally involved and can’t wait to get back to them.

Slide1-1Now I get to read the last book, I’m looking forward to it, also dreading it being the end of my time with all them.

One of my favorite quotes ’Semper tuus ero’, read the story to find out the definition! Hehe  :).

My Writing Process – Blog Tour – by Author Emily Guido

 

This is a blog tour about how authors discover their writing process.

My wonderfully talented blogging friend David Lee Summers posted his post last week and you can see his incredible blog herehttp://dlsummers.wordpress.com/2014/03/17/my-writing-process-blog-tour/ 

Now onto My Writing Process:

4 Seditious Book Cover 1What am I working on?

I am in the final edits of Seditious, the 4th novel in The Light-Bearer Series. I have Ransom the 5th novel finished and doing preliminary edits. However, I am in the process of finishing Conundrum the 6th novel.

In Seditious, Tabbruis is tested with his dark past coming to haunt him called . . .  Bathsheba!  She is serious trouble. However, the most heinous threat comes from the Evil Lord Cromwell, a very powerful Blood-Hunter.

The team at the Castle Charmeine has its hands full in Ransom and it does not disappoint. As a matter of fact, I believe the series just keeps getting better and better. More Blood-Hunters, Light-Bearers, Angels, Demons, Witches and Warlocks to come.

How does my work differ from others of its genre?

Book loversMy writing is different because I never mentioned in any of The Light-Bearer Series that the Blood-Hunters are Vampires. I wanted my own definition of a vampire. So, I didn’t follow the lore that Bram Stoker, my very favorite Author, wrote Dracula.  My work is spiritual but The Light-Bearer Series is certainly is not a religious series per se. How can you mention Angels and Heaven, and not mention God? That would be very difficult.

Also, I concentrate on making my work a “believable-fantasy.” I mean, The Light-Bearer Series is set with the contemporary themes of our time. Yes, my characters do not exist, but I wanted to make the reader believe that they could be, just a little. I have a friend who is always telling me that my writing is “living ability,” and I always wondered what that meant. However, one day I was at a book signing and a fan told me that she read the books and thought I had been in Iraq or had a relative in the Army in Iraq.  I didn’t, but I did a lot of research.

ALL the history in the novels are true, and I have gone into great research to correctly portray the long 8000 year history of Tabbruis and his fellow Blood-Hunters and Light-Bearers.

Why do I write what I do?

11-5-2013-9-31-32-amI LOVE PARANORMAL and I LOVE ROMANCE!  It’s that simple . . .  Why would anyone write what they aren’t interested in?

I am an avid reader in my genre. I also am an avid reader of Independent Authors too. I love the unknown that you get with a Paranormal Genre. I am getting my MBA in August, 2014 and I use my writing as an outlet for all the wonderful scenes going on in my head.

Tabbruis is such a dark, luscious character to me. His head is always centered on one thing and one thing only . . . Charmeine!  She is his light in his dark world. Tabbruis is a hunk-a-hunk-a burning love, but he doesn’t have any purpose without Charmeine and her love. Saving the world is just a side-effect of being with Charmeine. He would be happy if the world went away and it was just them, all alone. He loves her with a determination and strength that is deep in his sole. Charmeine is his life and to him, nothing matters but the woman in his arms . . . Charmeine.

Yes, Charmeine loves Tabbruis right back; however, her love is a “special kind of love” she wants to accept everyone. She wants everyone to be supported and loved. She is a wonderful role model for us all. Her tolerance and acceptance of everyone, no matter what or who they are is something lacking in this world. Unless that person is a scumbag, like the dastardly, venomous Pascal or Bathsheba.

Why do I write? It’s clear, I write of things that make me excited, scared, romantic, and most of all happy!

How does your writing process work?

thursday14I spend no preparation time because I see the scenes in my head and write as I view them. I know, I know . . . a lot of writers would think I was crazy, but believe me, I can’t write off an outline. I have to let the story flow and evolve it the way.

I know in my heart that true fans of Paranormal reading will never fade away. They are the people who like to escape in their minds to a world that is colored and framed by the author. The people who want to read are reading and the others can do as they wish.

If one person likes “The Light-Bearer Series,” and that person to tells another how they enjoyed “The Light-Bearer Series,” one person to recommend “The Light-Bearer Series,” and the news will grow exponentially.

I try keep my head and use my author friends for support and guidance. They are my lifeline.

I love my fellow BLOGGERS and AUTHORS!

 Just because . . . This song inspired “The Light-Bearer Series” it’s one of my all-time favorite songs:


Why are you writing? by Emily Guido Author of “The Light-Bearer Series”

Slide1-1For me, I had a story running through my mind and couldn’t get it out of my head. It was like you or me going to see a movie and someone asked us to tell them what went on in the movie.  I just took a shot and started writing. When I started writing I couldn’t stop. I didn’t sleep for 48 hours and in a week I had over 100,000 words. Not being a novelist or a writer, I asked my husband what qualified as a novel and he said, “Honey, you have yourself not only a novel, but a series.” By the time I was finally finished in a couple weeks, I had over 130,000 plus and wrote the first three books,“Charmeine,” “Mactus,” and “Accendo.” It was so simple.

It was pretty much the same way with the fourth novel “Seditious” and fifth novel “Ransom”, I had the continuation of the movie going, and I just kept writing and writing. The sixth novel would be simple for me to write, but I am always promoting the first three novel and gearing up for the fourth, so it doesn’t leave a lot of time for writing. Nevertheless, the movie is still playing in my head though and I’m itching to get it out. I wrote the first chapter to the sixth novel “Conundrum” and it scared me as I was writing it!

People ask me at work because they don’t know me to be a writer at all and say, “Emily, how in the heck did you come up with the idea?”  I just shrug my shoulders. But really, do you have to know? No. You just have to have the story come.

006“The Light-Bearer Series,” didn’t matter to me whether or not it was fantasy or non-fantasy. The characters are what mattered, and nothing else did. I do think of myself as a paranormal romance fan. I love the genre, so in that way, you could say that it was the easy for me to write in that realm. The action-packed and romantic movie in my head,“The Light-Bearer Series,” was between two souls who had to battle to love each other.

How, as writers, can we write about aspects we don’t at least know on a broad base level? In my humble opinion, we cannot. I have to confess, there are two characters in the “The Light-Bearer Series” novel which are very easy to write for because they are part of me, Charmeine, (heroine) for her faith, acceptance and kindness, and Tabbruis, (hero) for always looking on the darker side from years of being lonely and too much into his self. The other characters have all of little aspects of my psyche and beliefs.

HuntingHeroesHow do I make fantasy sound on the fringe of believable?  No one is going to believe my fantasy world exists, but you have to make it on the edge of common belief. Like a couple of my characters from “The Light-Bearer Series,” are Shane and Sandra. In the novels, they served in the US War in Iraq. I had to make sure they were on the fringe of believable.  They needed to have those skills and characteristics learned in the US Army and being in harm’s way for extended period of time. I guess for me, being a fantasy writer is a joy because the writing can go wherever your mind tells it to.

165409_617938921568330_1606546062_nReaders will never fade away. People like to escape in their minds to a world that is colored and framed by the author. Yes, I know there are tons of TV-aholics and Movie-aholics, so what?  The people who want to read are reading and the others can do as they wish. Naturally, I’m not going to sit here and say I don’t care if people read my book or not . . . that would be silly.  Of course, I want people to read my books. However, it only takes one; one person to read “The Light-Bearer Series,” one person to like “The Light-Bearer Series,” one person to tell others how they enjoyed “The Light-Bearer Series,” one person to recommend “The Light-Bearer Series,”and the news will grow.”  I am always in a twist wondering what people think about “Charmeine.”  However, I just keep my head above water and use my book friends for support and guidance.  They, my wonderful friends, are my lifeline and I love them to death!

 

photo (5)1About Emily Guido’s “The Light-Bearer Series”

“The Light-Bearer Series,” is a set of novels centering around two very star-crossed, hopelessly in love people, Tabbruis and Charmeine. They are total and complete opposites from one another.  Tabbruis is a blood-hunter who meets Charmeine who is a light-bearer.  Blood-hunters and light-bearers are supposed to kill each other because one is from Heaven and one is from Hell. However, when they meet, Tabbruis and Charmeine are anything but repulsed. They are such polar opposites that they attract like magnets! Once they find each other, they struggle to stay together. Also there are tons of twists and turns. Nothing is certain for their future accept that they love each other and their family! The series of novels I plan to write are about those struggles and how their love multiplies. Tabbruis and Charmeine create a family of love and acceptance for all, no matter how unconventional they may be, all while they battle the Evil minions of Lucifer on Earth. I do include Heavenly and Hellish aspects from modern religion however; the novels are not about religion. It is about love . . . pure, perfect and steadfast.

I am sorry . . . “The Light-Bearer Series” by Emily Guido

-1“I am sorry Charmeine, for so many things it is hard to express them all . . . but, I am going to try.” He took a big breath and looked in her eyes. “I am sorry for not supporting you. I am sorry for not believing in you. I am sorry for not having faith in you. I am sorry, Charmeine. If you let me show you, for the rest of my life until the end of time, I will never doubt you again.”

“Tabbruis, I can’t do this now.”

“Please let me finish?” He gently held her chin, looked into her eyes and declared, “Charmeine you are my life. You are my light. If you go back to Long Island . . .”

She walked to the terrace stone wall. “Tabbruis, it isn’t so easy putting Jack and Jill back together again. I really need to be alone.”

He walked to her and said, “Look at me this time, Charmeine. I have to say my peace, and I will leave.”

l4She turned and faced him with her hands defiantly across her chest and sighed.

“If you go back to Long Island, I will accept it, but let me go and be near you. Let me live near you. I can buy any kind of house or apartment you wish for your own privacy. You do not need to see me, just let me be near you, for you are the center of my Earth. God knows I cannot live without being near you. You never have to lay your eyes on me. I just need to be near you. That is what I ask. Nevertheless, please forgive me, Charmeine. Forgive me enough to let me just be near you. If you abandon me, I will not survive. Wherever you go, I will go with you.  Whatever you want, I will give it to you.” 

He unfolded her arms and took her hands which sparked. He unclenched her fists and drew them up in front of them, palm to palm. Her sparks began to go up and down their bodies, enveloping them with light.

“Tabbruis, do you remember the first time this happened? You were trying to convince me not to leave and sacrifice myself to the Elder Council.”

“Yes, I remember, my love.” He drew nearer to her. “I know you cannot lie to me, do you have the strength to be without me either?”

blonde-boy-couple-girl-hot-love-Favim_com-105700

“How long have you been working on that speech Tabbruis?”

He nodded with a slight smile and said, “Well, I have to admit, I have been rehearsing it ever since we left Smith Point Beach.”

“You are not lying… I thought so,” and she chuckled.

Then his eyes became like pools of tears. “I am so afraid of what you are going to say, my heart feels like it has been incased in ice and cannot beat.”

She broke free from his hands and their circle of light was gone. She faced the Black Sea holding onto the stone wall, and breathed deeply. Not looking at him, she said, “Tabbruis let me say although I was heartbroken you did not have faith, trust and belief in me, I know you are truly sorry which has healed my heart.”

Tabbruis started to reach for her, but she held up her hands willing him to keep his place.

david-gandy-1Keeping her face to the sea, she said, “Reconciliation . . . seems like such a passé word but it’s really love. God knows I have so much love in my heart for you I cannot bear to be away from you also. I knew you came into my room and watched me sleep after I came back from Long Island. I could feel your presence, and then, I could sleep. One night, I was crying myself to sleep. You came over to the bed and held me. I wanted you so badly, but it was my foolishness. I am at fault here also. I should have forgiven you because God knows I love you Tabbruis. I see now we can’t be apart, because we are one.”

She turned to look at him. “Looking into your eyes, Tabbruis, my love, I can see eternity. It was over before it begun, our destinies are one, like it has been since God made us for each other in Heaven.”

With relief, joy and love, Tabbruis embraced Charmeine.  Ever so slowly and gently, he bent to kiss her soft lips. He caressed her body in his strong arms.

LOVE is what it all comes down to.

Blood Lust . . . “The Light-Bearer Series” by Emily Guido

tumblr_m5td1tw0Kr1qbyw37o3_250

Tears were pouring out of Charmeine’s eyes clouding her vision. Tabbruis’ pallor was almost white. Helplessness enveloped her. She screamed with all the fear she felt in her soul, “Damn It To Hell!”

In desperation, she cut her finger with the letter opener. She pushed her bleeding finger through his lips, and rested it on his tongue. “Taste my blood; you need to drink now, Tabbruis.” She whispered in his ear, “Drink . . .”

Tabbruis rolled his eyes. He could not believe it, but her voice was the same voice he heard eight thousand years ago telling him to ‘drink’ when he chose to only take the blood from animals instead of humans.

Charmeine saw there was no response from him. Still with her bathing top on, she unzipped her hoodie and took it off. While dripping blood on her neck, she pulled Tabbruis up into a sitting position and leaned his mouth against her neck rubbing her bloody finger against her jugular vein and his lips.

Slide1-1

Tears were rolling down Charmeine’s face. She said in his ear, “Hold on to me, Tabbruis, don’t leave me now. I’ve been searching for you my whole life. Semper . . . tua . . . ero . . . Tabbruis . . . I am forever yours.”

Finally, Charmeine felt a puncture in her neck and gasped at the pain, but was very relieved. Something strange happened when he began to pull on her blood. She felt a rush of warmth run through her body. When he pulled again on her blood, a shock of pleasure ran up and down her body. She laid back on the bed too weak to hold up his weight up anymore.

Going on Tabbruis’ basic instincts, he rested across the top of her with his mouth buried in her neck. He pulled on her sublime and sweet blood again. When he drank, an electric, sexual heat filled all his senses.

Charmeine did not know what was going on. She had never felt like this before. She pressed him against her body and whispered, “Hold me, Tabbruis. Hold me closer.”

With a low growl, he began to wrap his arms around her tightly.

Couple+in+bed_1111_18208605_0_0_7003308_300She moaned with pleasure as she locked her hands on his back feeling his muscles tighten under her touch.

Tabbruis was not only reveling in her sweet and divine blood rushing over his tongue, but he was on fire with desire. His body had never experienced the feelings of pure want and sexual need which flowed through him.

Never had Tabbruis wanted anyone, but he craved Charmeine’s body and soul. He did not want to let go until they were both satisfied with the need they both were feeling.

411 with Emily Guido and “The Light-Bearer Series”

What are my books about?

“The Light-Bearer Series” is about Tabbruis and Charmeine.  He’s a Vampire or Blood-Hunter and she is an Angel or Light-Bearer.  However, I never said in my books that Tabbruis is a Vampire. I said he was a Blood-Hunter throughout the series.

64159_176655879116685_176636999118573_257471_1415437038_nWhy? I wanted to set up this series that action was being played mostly in today’s time period but also in past time periods. Tabbruis shares, along with his other Blood-Hunter buddies, Dmitri, Neal and Thomas all their rich eyewitness encounters with the most significant events of human history.

Now, for the sexy part… Tabbruis and Charmeine are opposites and they attract just like magnets.  Charmeine is Angelic and supposed to kill Blood-Hunters, and Tabbruis is Hellish and supposed to kill Light-Bearers. But when they meet, that is the last thing they have on their mind, quite the opposite!

cropped-facebook-emily.jpgNow, to survive their forbidden love, they battle the Evil Elder Council that has put a price on their heads. In “The Light-Bearer Series” we find out that Charmeine has been given the task of being the Queen of the Light-Bearers and as such, she is given a Holy Edict to rid the Earth of evil in ALL forms along with her King of Darkness, Tabbruis.

What goes into the recipe for a great paranormal romance . . . hummmm?

392545_198977216892181_135065112_nOh my, the perfect man, warped on the inside and drop-dead gorgeous on the outside. You need a woman who is not a weakling, but a strong, capable and formidable lady.  I’m so through with women always having to be saved.  “Charmeine” was written in my mind that my women characters were very independent, smart and sassy.  Then you have to have the perfect mystery and mystical mix to make the pot nice and hot to boil in sexiness (smexy), action, and adventure

How did I create the perfect “Swoon” worthy man?

Ah yes, the man. It always comes down to the perfect man! I’m different than most women; I like a hero that is damaged. Heroes such as Heathcliff, Mr. Rochester or Mr. Darcy, all are perfect in my eyes because they are kind of warped on the inside. Then, they melt their icy hearts when the love of their life comes into view. Damaged, good-looking men are always a treat to the eyes. I love tall, no nonsense, dark-haired, half-shaven, dressed nicely, built, athletic, and most of all smoking eyes that can melt anyone with a look.

If I was a paranormal being, what would I be?

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved vampires . . . I guess I watched too many episodes of “Dark Shadows” after school.

I want my readers to know.

Have a good time reading.

Charmeine and Tabbruis 1If you love romance and then don’t settle for anything less than two opposites which when they come together, it is like centrifugal force and the longing and heart-wrenching drama is overwhelming to them and they cannot understand what happened.

If you love paranormal action, you should be hit like lightning when it strikes a beach which makes these wonderful glass conflagrations in the sand. The sand melts with the force of the lightning.

I think Paranormal Romance should have mystery, never possession, but magnetism that can’t be explained or overcame with power, wealth or sex. Romance is not sex. Romance is connection and Paranormal Romance is romance with a bite!

Get to know the gang at The Castle Charmeine…

Tabbruis – (Tab-bree-us)

Drop Dead Gorgeous 

and Grecian living statue come to life

is Tabbruis!  

392545_198977216892181_135065112_n

Tabbruis is the man of my dreams!  He has deep, hypnotic green, emerald eyes that can make a girl melt.  Kind and honest to a fault, he is The King of the Blood-Hunters!

With a little hint of a Middle-East accent, Tabbruis has a lovely bass voice. However, he can speak almost any language even with the proper dialect.

He was a loner for thousands of years. Very wealthy and rich beyond anyone has a clue at, he usually doesn’t splurge on himself.

Tabbruis makes Charmeine heat up with just a look! Heck, I would too!  He is brave and bold, but shy too.  Ah, the sweetness…  He is a perfect gentleman, but somehow, he makes big mistakes.

He relishes having his Charmeine in his arms!  Now, he loves to spoil Charmeine rotten with any luxury he can think of.

2012-dodge-charger-sxt-v6-photo-473495-s-1280x782Tabbruis loves Charmeine and his family, but he’s a little soft for his muscle car… 2013 Dodge Charger SRT8, AWD with a Hemi Engine with 465 horses.

Tabbruis has a built in radar detector with his Blood-Hunter senses and can race through New York City without getting a ticket!

Tristan and Isolde

However, Tabbruis also loves his horses, Tristan and Isolde too. Charmeine has fell in love with them as well!  Of course Tristan is the black horse that Tabbruis rides and Isolde is the white horse that Charmeine has.

Tristan is always itching to race, but Isolde won’t let him have the upper hand, so to speak! Tabbruis and Charmeine have a blast racing the beautiful animals across the countryside.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dmitri

One of my favorite to die for characters!

LongDarkStraightOMG!! Dmitri is just “Hotness on a stick!”

He is exact, bold and unbelievably sexy!  Dmitri is the one of the oldest of the Blood-Hunters in the world.

He is wise and helps Tabbruis and Charmeine with his knowledge.  He was named as the trusted ‘Advisor’ to Charmeine. He runs or is the Administrator of the “Castle Charmeine.”

On the other hand, Dmitri can come out with the funniest comments! He is known for his signature and snarky… ‘Oh my’His story really picks up with steamy scenes in the following novels!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

colored-woman-48938Hera

Hera is Dmitri’s beloved and gorgeous Grecian wife who comes back into his life and they mix it up!

Rrrrrrarrrr!

But Dmitri is also a family man who is devoted to his children, Percival and the darling Athena!

AyleeLongbottomCarly

The lovely and strikingly beautiful young woman is a new addition to the members of Castle Charmeine.

Her powers with ESP and Telekinesis have qualified her to be a the resident Sorceress of the Castle Charmeine.

When she meets Percival, sparks fly…literally!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thomas

ThomasI love Thomas and his innocence, but truly, he is an Adonis.  Golden Brown hair and wonderful sky blue eyes…  ahh….

His mission is avenging the death of his precious Laura who was killed; get this…by his own Father, the evil Pascal, the Head of the Elder Council!

He is a very loving and faithful man.  He tries so hard to make up for the terrible Blood-Hunter father he had, Pascal, who is terrorizing and threatening the inhabitants of the “Castle Charmeine.”

Thomas is a very conservative and faithful Blood-Hunter and used to serve as a Deacon in the Catholic Church.

Nevertheless, Thomas has a deep secret he carries and when it is revealed… it will leave you reeling.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Women-Long-Straight-Brown-HairstylesLaura

Laura is the smart, sassy and extremely intelligent Doctor of Castle Charmeine.  She is an extremely good physician but her bedside manner is not to be found when she is in an emergency!

Laura has been on the Earth for thousands of years as a Light-Bearer.  She has been taking care of people for as long as she has been on Earth. Sometimes with a snarky comment, her humor is always on the mark.

However, Laura has a dark and frightening past, and Thomas is her savior.

(aka Nemamiah)

Neal (aka Nemamiah) is the wonderful HUGE Protector of the “Castle Charmeine!” Neal is from Africa and has a thick accent with a booming deep bass voice.

He is at least 7 foot tall and is just a cuddly teddy bear of the family but he can also rip your arm off yawning!  STRONG MAN!

His bald head and intimidating stature makes him a perfect military man.

He is incredibly gorgeous, but ladies… sorry, Neal has a love and his name is Hameal!  Murdered by the evil Elder Council, Hameal was Neal’s heart. So Neal is out to avenge his gorgeous lover’s death!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mens-medium-curly-hairHameal 

OMG! What a hunk!

Hameal is from Egypt, and before he met his lover, Neal, he was a builder of the Pharaohs.

Now, he is a builder, architect and designer of the Castle Charmeine.

In addition, he is a wonderful friend to Charmeine, as they always have their heads together chatting about something… usually gossip.

Ladies, this is the man to have on your side when good times are to be had!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Simply+RedShane

GIVEAWAY and ‘The Beach’ excerpt from “MACTUS” 2nd novel in “The Light-Bearer Series” by Emily Guido

Charmeine sat up coughing the sea water trapped in her lungs. “Marriage is a three ring circus . . . engagement ring, wedding ring, and . . . suffering!” 

Tabbruis broke out with a booming laugh. He was tearing up from relief and happiness.

She laughed while coughing. He was smiling so much, it made her happy.

Couple relaxing at a beach.

“That joke was bad. I mean really awful, Charmeine.”

“If it was so ‘awful,’ why did you laugh? Huh?”

“You got me there.” His smile sparkled like his emerald eyes.

They both flopped back on the blanket laughing. Then, their laughs subsided.

Tabbruis reached for her hand.

They held hands looking at the sky.

 “This is just Heaven.” Her hand was warm with white light. “I wish I could stay with you like this, just on this little beach until the end of time.”

 “I would like nothing better,” Tabbruis growled and whispered, “But, I would make one correction.”

“Oh yeah? This beach is about as perfect as they come and the cabana is like a house.”

Tabbruis turned on his side, felt the material of her swim suit and answered in a sultry low voice, “This should be outlawed, my love.”

“I take it you have a problem with my wardrobe?” She boiled with heat and not the kind of hotness from the sun.

“Actually, when I saw you walk out of the cabana, I was jealous of how it twisted around your body. . . ”  Then, he made sexy sigh, “You see . . . that is what I would like to do.”

Fire burned in her cheeks as they turned a deep red, and she began to breathe harder. “This is a beach,” and began to look around.

With a look of unrestrained desire, “My love . . . it is a private beach.” His hand started to caress her shoulder and neck.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is typical of Charmeine’s lousy jokes

and Tabbruis’ sexy charms . . . very hot!

GIVEAWAY and a snippet – “A link between us” from “Charmeine” 1st book in “The Light-Bearer Series” by Emily Guido

imagesCAPK0H9BCharleen (aka 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?

“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 this scene because it haunts me…

GIVEAWAY and ‘She was life’.. excerpt from “CHARMEINE” the 1st Novel in “The Light-Bearer Series” by Emily Guido

tumblr_m3el35QLnb1ql3cv0o1_500Tabbruis stood looking at the New York harbor. Even though Charleen had been asleep for a couple of hours, he did not want to leave her. He paced up and down the terrace slowly thinking of her. He was going through all the memories and images from the moment he met her. While she was sleeping, he studied her sweet face. The apparitions he had of her before they met were nothing compared to real life.

He had to admit he was enthralled by her. He wanted to make her arms his permanent home. He reveled in the thought of being with her every day. Nevertheless, he could not see how they could be together, because they were opposites. He mumbled, “How can I even tell her how I feel? How can I have a relationship with her? How can I ever make this work?”

However, he knew eventually he would have to leave her, and it would be the right thing to leave her. If they were ever together, by some miracle, they would be chased and hunted down until the ends of the Earth by the Elder Council Temple Guards and sentenced to death.

Tabbruis hung his head and acquiesced to the fact he had to make sure she was safe, and then he must leave. His heart broke in two because nothing in the world had ever made him feel so alive, not even blood. She sparked to him and him only. He thought it must mean something. His eyes started to well with tears, and his heart ached thinking about leaving her.

Now, finally after eight thousand years, he knew peace with her. When he finally separated from her, Tabbruis knew he would be in great misery. His broken heart ached to be with her. To him, she was all he wanted . . . she was life.

All of sudden, he heard a heart-wrenching scream. With superhuman speed, he sat down beside her.

She was thrashing about.

 “Charleen, wake up. It is just a dream, wake up.” He grabbed her arms.

David-Gandy-Helena-Christensen

She was still fighting in her dream. She was out of breath and sweat was pouring off of her face. Her hair was matted down to her neck with sweat.

He knew she was terrified. Her heart was practically beating out of her chest. Trying to soothe her he assured, “Charleen . . . Shh, it is only just a bad dream. Shh, everything is okay. Charleen!”

Slowly she started to come out of it. She gradually opened her eyes and focused on Tabbruis’ face above her. Immediately, she threw herself at him. She almost toppled him over. She was on his lap and hugging him so tightly, it took his breath away. Pressing her hand on his chest over and over again, she cried out, “Are you real? Are you here? Please don’t leave me!”

I wanted a gift for Christmas so bad with all my  14 year old heart.

I was sure, without a doubt, I wasn’t going to get it!

Presents were scarce in a household with eight kids

We celebrated all the Holidays with food, games, and singing carols, NOT presents.

That’s what I thought about writing this . . .

 

(By the way, the Timex watch I wanted was tucked inside a branch of the Christmas Tree after all. I didn’t find it until late Christmas night. I still have it to this day!)

Charmeine’s arms extended and her feet came off the ground. She looked like a large electric butterfly.

Everyone gasped with astonishment.

She flew over them going to one end of the terrace and back about twenty feet off the ground. Her butterfly arms lit up with a bright white light. In a big booming voice from Heaven she exclaimed, “I am God’s Holy Instrument, a Light-Bearer! I am on Earth to fight for justice and send Lucifer’s children to Hell! No shadows will ever block the Son!” 

A crackle of thunder boomed, making each person jump.

Charmeine made lightning come down from the sky surrounding the terrace, like an electrical jail. The smell of electric current blew through the air. She started to float down slowly.

With a flash of lightning, Charmeine and Sandra became normal. They looked at each other stunned. Then, they hugged while laughing.

The men stood in awe.

DmitriDmitri’s eyes were wide with excitement, and he shouted with great joy, “Thank God! The Prophecy is fulfilled! I see it all now! The Prophecy of God . . . is upon Charmeine!” 

Everyone looked at Dmitri in puzzlement.

However, Tabbruis was not looking at Dmitri. His heart was racing, and he gazed at Charmeine with fear and anxiety.

Dmitri cried out, “The Prophecy says the Queen of Light will sit on the throne, the King of Night will fight as her Champion, and their family will rule the Elders with truth, wisdom and justice!”

tumblr_m5vv7z80Mv1qg9gt6o1_250“No! Dmitri! It cannot be . . . She cannot not the Queen of Light!” 

“Tabbruis, God’s will be done, not yours.” Dmitri bowed in front of Charmeine.

It seemed the air was knocked out of Tabbruis’ lungs, and he tried to control the absolute dread in his heart. He thought, The Prophecy is to be carried out by my family? Charmeine is supposed to fight Evil? His head was spinning. For in his heart, he knew what Dmitri said was true. He was overwhelmed with fear and dread. Charmeine is the Queen of Light, and I am the King of Darkness and Night, he thought, It cannot be.

Dmitri held up his hands and yelled, “Praise Be to God! Finally the Elder Council will be destroyed!” All of sudden, his face went black with foreboding, and he said, “Oh my children, the Prophecy says there will be great suffering, and a battle which will be tragic and bloody.” He turned slowly and went up the stairs leading to the Ball Room.

Everyone was baffled and tried to process the last few minutes.

However, Tabbruis felt like his shoulders had a thousand pound weight on them. His wife was the Queen of Light. His charge was to Champion and support her.    

Then Dmitri turned around and said in a commanding voice, “Practice to do battle with the Elder Council begins tonight on the lawn at sunset. I suggest everyone rest,” looking at Charmeine and Sandra, “you will need it.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Always remember you are never alone.

Whatever religion you are or what your situation is . . .

I believe there are Gaurdians there with you.

Angels or Spirits or whatever

Love this song, and I think of Charmeine’s Battle cry when I hear it!

Lots of love and peace, Emily

Review of “CHARMEINE” the 1st Book in “The Light-Bearer Series”

http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/728106958

1 Charmeine

I got this book from the author, free of cost, in exchange of an honest review from my side.

Firstly I would like to thank Emily Guido, author of Charmeine, for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this fabulous book.

OH.MY.GOSH! I loved it, totally! This story is great and will tempt any readers because this book has true love and the struggle to live with it which I think everyone likes.

Tabbruis is to die for handsome and a blood hunter vampire whereas we have Charleen who is a light bearer angel and guess what they fall in love when they meet while Tabbruis saves Charleen from other blood hunters who attacked her.

Yup you guessed it right, both of the blood hunters and light bearers are enemies and want to destroy each other whereas here we have our hero and heroine who enter the world of forbidden love and will struggle against their own to have one another and save their love.

Where ever there is forbidden love you’ll find me there, just kidding! I love reading books regarding true love and the fight to save it well if you are in my team then this is the ‘IT’ book for you.

Mactus Jpeg

I got this book from the author, free of cost, in exchange of an honest review from my side.

Firstly I would like to thank Emily Guido, author of Mactus, for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this fabulous book.

WOW! What a great read.

Charmeine was intriguing and now Mactus really changed the meaning of intriguing to me it was freakishly intriguing and exciting with more dark secrets, power-packed fighting scenes, passionate true love, heart touching family bonding, dangerous enemies craving blood and destruction.

I really fell in love with this book and you’ll too when you read it. It’s a total page turner and I completed it in one sitting! The story brings back the wondrous magic of Emily Guido and we are taken back to the life of Charleen and Tabbruis where they slowly get glimpses of their long lost love through dreams and as a special treat we get to see Shane in love as well.

The Elder Council and the blood hunters posses threats all over again and this time the fight is not only for the couple but also for their family as well where loyalty, love, affection, dedication are all put through dangerous tests and love is at stake again!

With unpredictable twists and turns, revelations of hidden secrets, increase in intensity of love we find ourselves to be on an roller coaster where you can’t even imagine what’s going to be served next.

A thrilling and gripping read for ya all and I’m sure that You’ll love it as I did!

Great job Emily, you rock! Now I’m anxious waiting for the next and upcoming installments!

Love, love this song and I think of Tab and Char . . . don’t know why, just do

Dream of Horror… excerpt from “MACTUS” the 2nd book of “The Light-Bearer Series” by Emily Guido

 

 

136515432424157204_9ePWhm6G_fAs Charmeine appeared in Tabbruis’ dream, she was being carried away in darkness. 

He saw her being tortured on the ‘Altar of Judgment’ lying helpless and defenseless.

Tabbruis was being held by the Elder Temple Guards doing everything he could to get to her.

3x07_0510

He screamed in horror as the Elder walked over to her with his fangs exposed and leaned down . . .

~~~~~~~

Tabbruis tossed his head back and forth, roused himself out of sleep and ran to the bathroom to check on Charmeine, but she was gone. He looked around and saw her clothes were on the bathroom floor with a used bath towel. The shoes she wore were gone. His throat tightened, and he became very alarmed. Quickly, he ran out the bedroom and down the hallway.

stock-footage-man-runs-into-the-dark-concrete-tunnel-from-the-glowing-endHe opened the door to their castle wing and stood on the front entry staircase landing. He reached out with his senses and felt her heart beating which made him instantly relieved.

Very soft music was coming from the Grand Hall downstairs. As he started down the steps, Tabbruis heard Dmitri whisper, “Charmeine is in the Grand Hall playing the piano.” He saw Dmitri standing by the door to his wing of the castle.

He nodded and began to head down the stairs.

Dmitri whispered, “Charmeine will surrender, Brother. I am sorry. She will not fight.”

Tabbruis’ heart erupted in pain! He felt like a two ton truck had hit him. “Charmeine is strong. We will be a family as God intended us to be. She will fight for our family.”

john_abraham-27“Ah yes, your family is set as God planned it to be on the dreadful day of the battle in Heaven. However, Charmeine is a Light-Bearer; she is a light of God. This woman is like the Son. She will sacrifice herself for her family. Tabbruis, my brother, look into your heart. Do you believe she will let you suffer for her? Do you believe she will let anyone suffer for her? The love in her heart is too strong.” 

Tabbruis hung his head and replied with despair, “Dear God, how could you do this to my family again? I just found Charmeine, and you want to take her away from me and our son?”

He could hear music from the Grand Hall, and it was so beautiful.

Thoughts of Charmeine’s tortured face from his nightmare raced in his memory, and he began to tear hiding it from Dmitri. No way could he survive losing her all over again.

tumblr_m565e8km6p1rxtnc6o1_500Sitting on the stair with his head in his hands, he whispered, “I have seen it Dmitri. I know what you say is true. I cannot bear to go on without her. I would rather die with her than to be without her. I have waited eight thousand years for Charmeine and God be damned if she will be taken away from me again.”  

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I always loved this song

always . . .

It shows the strength that a pure love has.

And the lyrics and voice are haunting!

The truth comes out . . . “CHARMEINE” first book in “The Light-Bearer Series”

tumblr_m3ekvqRb6N1ql3cv0o1_500Tabbruis made fists with his hands, slammed them on his knees and gazed into her bright brown eyes. “Elders or Blood-Hunters live on blood, like you eat food to live. After a time of total depraved treatment of humans showering carnage everywhere I went, I changed. I had a reckoning of my evil side. I swore never to drink human blood again unless it was donated. I mostly survive now on wild game. I try to stay away from heavily populated areas, so I can hunt.”

He looked up to the ceiling struggling with the words to say next, “How can I convince you this is real? Heaven help me, Miss Davis. I do not know what I have done to deserve such a scourge on my soul. I have no memory before my eyes opened on that rock.”

Charleen knew he was truthful. She lifted his head so he would look into her eyes, and put her hands on his shoulders.

He was shocked but welcomed her calming and warm touch.

She did not have any fear and boldly asked him, “Do you want my blood now?”

Tabbruis’ deep green eyes bore into hers and declared, “I would never hurt you! Please know that!” Inside his heart was racing at the thought of tasting her blood, but he was going to protect and never hurt her.

“I know you are truthful,” and whispered, “I also believe you would never hurt me.”

GlowingHands-303x218He looked at her intently and his heart warmed. Tabbruis reached out to her hand and could actually feel the heat from her hands. The woman in front of him was giving out warming power which only a Light-Bearer could give.

“Miss Davis, I said you were not my type, because you were not a Blood-Hunter. Who am I to blame you if you doubt what I am saying to you is real? You are so innocent. I did not want you to know there was such evil as myself in the world. This curse is my secret shame. But now, I do not know what to do with all this.” Tabbruis hung his head again.

She lifted his chin. “Why? What can you do? What is there to do?” Even though her head ached, she got up and walked out on the terrace.

Tabbruis just put his head in his hands with his elbows on his knees. He had told her the truth and thought, What will she do? Will she run? Will she leave me? His heart started to ache. When he saw her in the parking lot, his heart came alive. Now, it seemed his heart was breaking.

Charleen was confused, but she knew he was telling her the truth. She let the wind whip her hair around her head, and it cleared her mind. She was processing the last few minutes looking at the New York Harbor. She felt a stab in her heart at the thought of ever leaving him. Then she said in soft murmur, “I’m scared.”

bach05

Tabbruis’ sensitive ears heard her. He raced out to the terrace and stood in front of her. “I promise, Miss Davis. I will never hurt you. You are safe. I am determined to protect you. Please do not be scared.”

Nevertheless, as much as Tabbruis hated to, he pulled away from her. It felt like he was walking in quicksand over to the patio door struggling not to turn around and hold her again. Her brightness intoxicated him. Her kindness warmed him. Her smile electrified him. Her touch . . . her touch aroused him.

**********************************************

securityjpg658fImmediately when they got off the elevator and stepped into the Lobby, Shane and Charmeine were taken aback.  They saw a massive security force there. In addition, there were three black Hummers along with a Police escort for the front and back.

“What’s going on Dad? Is President Obama staying here?” Shane asked with a perplexed half-smile.

Shane’s questions were cut short when Mr. Ferrell walked to them. “Mr. Hunter, everything has been arranged as required for your family’s safety.”

Tabbruis nodded with a serious look scanning the Lobby.  He handed Mr. Ferrell a package. “Mr. Ferrell, you have been extremely accommodating.  I have generously rewarded you.  I appreciate everything which you have done for me.  Please let me know if should need anything.  I am truly in your debt, my friend.”  Mr. Ferrell smiled and shook Tabbruis’ hand.

concierge_header_imageMr. Ferrell smiled wide, “May you and your family have a safe journey.  Please come and stay with us again, any time Mr. Hunter.  Your family is always welcome at the Ritz-Carlton.”

Just then a huge, gorgeous, African-American man came through the door of the Lobby.

Charmeine thought he must have been a security officer or guard of some sort, because he looked like he was at least 7 feet tall, probably more.  The Adonis was so well-built; she could see bulges of muscles under his jacket.  He was bald and wore sunglasses.

In a deep commanding voice, he smiled big and yelled, “Tabbruis!  Brother, how are you?”  He hugged Tabbruis and patted his back.

193232640232024704_mPX7rwUg_f“Good to see you, Brother!” Tabbruis smiled and gave him a tight hug in return.

The man bellowed, “It has been too many years, Tabbruis!” Then he looked around and said softly in a thick African accent, “Let us go now, and we will catch up when the danger is abated.  Would you please follow me Hunter Family?” He escorted them to the second black Hummer, and the door was slammed closed. The gigantic man spoke on his walkie-talkie in code.

Charmeine could not understand the code. But she figured the ‘all clear’ was sounded because the caravan started to move.  Her head was spinning.  However, when she looked at Shane and Tabbruis, it appeared they both knew the military lingo.

Once they were underway, the man smiled wide showing bright white teeth against his beautiful dark mocha skin, “Tabbruis, very nice to see you again, I would love to meet your family.”

“Neal, let me introduce you to my wife, Charmeine and my son, Shane.  This is my brother, Mr. Neal Michaels.”

Wife? Wife? Charmeine thought, and looked at Tabbruis with questioning eyes.

She heard a resounding deep voice say, “Pleasure Ma’am,” and she took her eyes away from Tabbruis. The man shook her hand while it disappeared into his big hand.

“Nice to meet you Shane,” Neal shook his hand.

“I will be in charge of your security from here on out,” Neal proudly and serious announced.  “I have served in many battles with Tabbruis. We met in 193 A.D.”  At that moment, he turned and looked out the window with a distressed face.  Then he turned back again to them and said, “I am from Africa around Cairo, Egypt. Tabbruis and I fought with the African born, Roman Emperor Septimus Severus, so the people could gain control of the corrupt empire.  Then with a look of sadness, he said, “But even before, Tabbruis has been my brother.  I consider it an honor to be your Protector.”

Dmitri“So, Brother… Dmitri sent you?” Tabbruis was scanning his brother’s face and offering thanks. He knew Dmitri was backing him up all the way from Romania. Once a Brother, always a Brother, he thought.

“Yes, he did. Dmitri thought I had particular skills in this kind of security. He sent me to assure your family’s safe passage from the Elder Council and Temple Guards… since I was one.”

Shane was alarmed and threw his arm over Charmeine. “Wait!  You are a Blood-Hunter Guard from the Elder Counsel  How can we trust that you won’t hurt Char?” 

Tabbruis opened his mouth to try to reassure Shane.

Neal sternly interjected, “I am a Blood-Hunter and an Elder; I also was a Temple Guard, but I have changed!  I do not partake in killing humans and Light-Bearers. I have a dear and good friend who is a Light-Bearer.”  Treating Shane like an insolent child, he harshly said, “You see, Shane, there are some Elders like your father; who are tolerant and accepting of others! There are Elders who believe the only way to exist on the Earth is in peace. We do not seek violence but harmony with the humans.  Listen to me… this is not the first time I have ever experienced a Blood-Hunter take a Light-Bearer for a mate…”

Neal’s eyes looked out the window, and he became solemn as he said, “But… the couple did not fare well. I am pledging my protection to your family so what happened to them does not happen to my brother, Tabbruis. You have my word of honor, Shane, Charmeine and Tabbruis. I will keep you safe.”

“Thank you, Neal.  I have missed you, Brother,” as Tabbruis patted him on his shoulder and smiled.

As they walked out, Tabbruis thought, All of us Brothers under one tiny castle in Romania… what will Charmeine think?

*********************************

I love, love, love Neal.

Can’t say enough about him.

He is fierce as a lion and lovable as a teddy bear and most of all,

totally loyal.

Neal is the strength that I wish I had…

couple-talking_300Tabbruis and Charmeine sat on the big couch overlooking the moonlit ocean through a big picture window.  The window was screened, and she opened it to get the night breeze.  While she ate and he drank his dinner, they talked quietly.

She asked him more about the history he experienced.  He answered her questions because he knew she loved it.  But when she asked, “Tabbruis, since you have lived so long, have societal civil rights actions and democratic nations shaped the Elder Council’s opinion at all?”

He was taken aback at her question and replied, “For all, this one issue is interesting and important.  The human race has evolved with elements of justice in almost every society on Earth.  However, Blood-Hunters and Light-Bearers have a history of descent which has never changed.  There is but one hope… a Prophecy!  I know Dmitri believes the Prophecy will unite us all and bring justice to our species.  Nevertheless, it is like a pipedream.  We will survive Charmeine, I am determined God will guide us through all of this.”

“Yes and our love will see us through, Tabbruis.  Never forget, our love,” she said softly.

Both hung their heads.  They seemed to know the day of rest and fun was over.

Charmeine softly said as she got up, “I’m going to clean up the dishes and go to bed.  You can stay up as much as you want.”

Tabbruis stood, gave her a small kiss and said, “I will clean up and join you in a minute.”

She shook her head smiling and replied, “Thanks, but a minute?  Damn that superhuman speed of yours.”  Charmeine went to the bedroom and opened up the window letting in the night sea breeze come in.  She sat on the window seal and thought about the Elder Council and the war between the Blood-Hunters and Light-Bearers.  She prayed quietly, “God, I love my family.  Could you help me find a way to save them?”

As he was clearing, Tabbruis overheard her, and his heart sank.  The same prayer was in his heart.  However, it was their wedding night.  He wanted to be with his bride.  He pushed his fears of the future away and walked into the bedroom.

Charmeine smiled and came to him.

He hugged and kissed her softly.

She said, “Tabbruis I love you.”

Hugging her he said, “I love you too.”

beautiful-couple-dark-follow-foolme-kiss-Favim_com-254908She held his hands, and they saw the curling ribbons of light dance around them.  She said, “I married you today, and you are mine.”

Tabbruis smiled and asked, “For better or for worse?”

She answered, “My love, everything doesn’t have to have a light and dark side.  I believe our love is all light.”

Tabbruis said, “I am worried…”

“Shh, I’m not, because we love one another,” she said.  With nothing but passion in her eyes, she untied her robe and let it fall to the floor.  She ran her hands over his bare chest looking up into his eyes.

Looking into her eyes, Tabbruis took off his robe.  Gently, he picked up his wife, put her on the bed and laid beside her.

With total peace and contentment, Charmeine whispered, “Make love to me Husband.”

Tabbruis kissed her.

Like an explosion went off in their blood, Tabbruis and Charmeine reached for each other in urgent need.  It was passion, desire and want all rolled into one.

Breathlessly, Tabbruis kissed Charmeine up and down her neck.

She held him closer to her body.

Favim_com-22034Tabbruis answered her urgent need with his own want and came down upon her.  He was so lost in his love and desire for her, he forgot about his Blood-Hunter side.  He was not a Blood-Hunter who only lived for blood; he was a man, a husband who wanted his wife.  He was just man who desired his mate…his light…his breath…and his joy.

Charmeine forgot about the fears of being a Light-Bearer and keeping her family safe.  She wanted her husband in a very basic need of longing and yearning.

Tabbruis and Charmeine were now joining their souls together with no hesitations or doubts.  As their passion rose to a fever pitch, he looked in her eyes whispered, “Semper tuus ero.”

Breathlessly she willed out of her lungs, “Semper tua ero.”

The detonation had begun.  Tabbruis and Charmeine shattered their fears as they crashed together.  Both of them were lost in the maximum tension of the moment and cried out in ecstasy and rapture.  In one sweet moment, their connection was permanent.

Charmeine and Tabbruis belonged together and their love would be everlasting!

FIVE STAR REVIEW By Polly Bennett, “The Light-Bearer Series” Reviewer

 


SEDITIOUS… “The Light-Bearer Series” I’m chomping at the bit for it to be out… Plus personal update! By Emily Guido

Lord Cromwell 1“Okay, we have to imprison Lord Cromwell, check,” and Charmeine held up her hand making a check mark in the air.

“Listen Sis, we need to tell you of how daunting Lord Cromwell is,” Hameal remarked as his face became stoic with a very serious look.

“Some of Earth’s darkest times were influenced by him,” Hera added.

“We know his deeds from our holds in Heaven,” Laura said as she folded her arms across her chest and sat back with a distant look. “We could see the loss of life and destruction he caused by clouding men’s minds. It’s a pretty lengthy list.”

“Yeah Mom, he was the one to influence building the Tower of Babel,” Sandra chimed in.

“The actual Tower of Babel?  But how…?” Charmeine asked.

“Generations following the great flood with Noah, we, the people of the Earth spoke one language,” Dmitri interrupted her and had a far off look on his face.

With a glimmer of recognition, Tabbruis added, “We migrated from the east, and came to the land of Shinar.”

Turris Babel from Athanasius Kircher

“Where the people resolved to build a city with a tower,” Thomas said with a black face.

“The tower was supposed to have its top in the heavens…” Hameal murmured.

“Lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the Earth,” Neal grumbled.

“And so God scattered them upon the face of the Earth, and confused their languages, and they left off building the city.” Laura welled in tears.

“You knew each other then?” Charmeine asked with wide open eyes.

They all shook their heads no.

“We did not know each other then, but we lived the same history,” Tabbruis replied.

Thomas uttered with a face of reminiscence, “The Tower which was called Babel because God confounded the language of all the Earth.”

“I’m constantly amazed at the history you all have shared.” Charmeine’s face lit up when she heard about the events they lived through.

“Charmeine, you romanticize history, but those who have lived it, are traumatized by it!” Tabbruis snapped.

She looked at him with surprise. He never lost his temper until Bathsheba came. She felt like her heart was bleeding.

“Amen to that, Tabbruis!” Laura blurted out. “Charmeine, you have no idea how lucky you were to appear on Earth in 1997. Some of us have had to live through Hell.”

Julius Cesar (Malmö)

Hameal could see Charmeine was still hurt from Tabbruis’ retorts. He tried to change the subject. “The assassination of Julius Caesar was from his doing. Cromwell also influenced Hernán Cortés who was mainly responsible for the Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire. The carnage of the people and rape of the land was immeasurable.”

“Mom, the Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, and his wife, Duchess of Hohenberg, were assassinated on June 28, 1914, in Sarajevo. Their deaths were the impetus for World War I, and we believe this pitiful excuse for a Blood-Hunter is guilty,” Shane said with a frown.

“How can Lord Cromwell wield such power?” Charmeine asked. She tried not to get sick and said, “But, two questions weigh on my mind. First and foremost, how did Pascal overcome the influence of Lord Cromwell? Second, why didn’t Pascal kill him? Why imprison him when he knew he was such a threat to the Blood-Hunters?

“We do not know, but I feel positive the family will find out those answers,” Tabbruis replied. “Nevertheless Charmeine, you need to know what kind of a force we are dealing with.  Lord Cromwell will not be easy to defeat. I am afraid the Elder Council was just a warm up for our family’s strength to be tested on Earth.”

Tabbruis… a Glimpse into his Blood Lust Dark Past. “The Light-Bearer Series” by Emily Guido

He woke up centuries ago on a rock in the barren desert by Mt. Sinai. The night covered the landscape and Tabbruis’ body was twisted and broken, but it healed within a few hours.  Nothing had made sense and he had no recollection of how he got there.

Joseph, a teenage shepherd, was tending to his goats and sheep and found Tabbruis lying helpless on a rock naked.  Tabbruis could understand Joseph said automatically.  He spoke the language with a perfect dialect.

Joseph asked him questions and Tabbruis could not answer.  His memory was devoid of anything before he awoke on the rock.

The boy befriended Tabbruis and gave him water, clothes and food. Even his precious cloak of different bright colors, Joseph shared with Tabbruis. But food did not sit very well on his stomach.

After nightfall on the third day, marauders stampeded the camp stealing the sheep, goats. Joseph screamed for help. The men were surprised to see Tabbruis come out of the tent.  Intent to help the boy, he became angry and started to fight.

To Tabbruis’ surprise, fangs poked through his gums making him shocked and senseless.  The blood he tasted from the fangs poking through his gums fueled his rage.  He ripped a man off his horse and tore through the skin with his bare hands.  As the spray of the man’s jugular hit Tabbruis in the mouth, he could taste the blood.

The man’s blood was nothing but exquisite to Tabbruis. It tasted so good, that for sheer hunger, he leaned down and drank.  The liquid ran over his tongue, and it was sublime.  He pulled on the man’s blood until all the life force was taken from him. By then, the marauders had left.  With blood dripping down his jaw, he sat by the corpse and screamed, “Blood! I want more… more!”

He wiped his mouth of the sanguine liquid which flowed from his fangs. His hunger was strong and the yearning to drink blood was overwhelming. All Tabbruis thought about… all Tabbruis wanted… and all Tabbruis needed was the sweet nectar running over his tongue…blood.

As he set out to find more blood, he began to run. Soon he caught a scent of humans to his left, behind a huge sand dune.

White Desert, Egypt

With speed and accuracy, he climbed over the dune to watch them as they rested and talked beside their small encirclement of tents. His urge was too overpowering to think about a plan for attack.

Tabbruis leaped like a leopard and pounded on two of the men sitting by the fire.  He held one by the neck in the air and the other he wrapped his fanged mouth on the neck of the other.  Puncturing the skin and receiving his reward.

He was soon rushed by others with long metal sticks that he heard them call “Swords.” Naturally to him, he moved away to avoid their strikes with lightning reflexes.  He picked up one of the odd shape “Swords” from his next victim that he drank dry in about one second, and began fighting with the experience of a champion sword master.

The men were hollering in their ancient language that he was a “Devil of Death!” Tabbruis heard all of their pleas and retorts for mercy.  However, he never cared.  He wanted more of the rich liquid that ran through their veins. Tabbruis was a merciless predator and nothing and no one could quench his blood-lust!

WOW!  

The nice Tabbruis is the man we know now.

What broke his psyche?

What made him turn from Evil?

You will have to find out…

Bathsheba… wicked… from SEDITIOUS the 4th Novel in “The Light-Bearer Series” COMING SOON!

6-1.jpgIn Romania, Tabbruis paced in front of Bathsheba’s bed in the hospital, and doubted if he could pull his role off. He was assigned to make her divulge information about Lord Cromwell while he used sexual attraction and flirtation to get Bathsheba’s defenses down.

Tabbruis could not understand how he was duped by the woman in front of him. She was not one tenth the beauty Charmeine was. His arms ached to hold his wife, touch her belly and feel Baby Hunter under his hand. He closed his eyes and whispered a prayer, “God please give me another chance with my wife. Our two hearts are lost and cannot resume beating unless we are together. I was a fool, Lord. She is the only woman I have ever loved.”

He opened his eyes and looked at Bathsheba. He thought, ‘This was not love. I was never in love with her. Our relationship was something sick, dark and Evil, contrived by Lucifer himself!’

All of a sudden, he felt a prick on his neck. He turned to find Bathsheba in front of him with her fangs exposed.

6704372_l (1)Bathsheba wiped her red lips with her tongue and smiled with a drop of blood dripping down the side of her mouth. She teased her thick French accent, “You must be getting slower in your reflexes during the years.” She licked her lip with her tongue to entice him.

Tabbruis wanted to kill her right where she stood! His eyes became black on the outside with green pinpoints in the middle. The eye change was not from desire, but from anger! He took a breath and resigned himself with the task he must do to make sure his family was safe.

“Bathsheba, I cannot believe you are alive,” he whispered as he closed his eyes and hugged her. “Why are you here?” He held her face an inch away and trembled with fury. He used all his strength not to destroy her on the spot, and thought, ‘Control Tabbruis, you have to get information from her.’ 

“You have been a naughty boy shacking up with a Light-Bearer. The thought of that cow with you makes me sick. Really Tabbruis, you should have a modicum of respect for the Elders?” She flirted with slanted eyes and a smile.

wirbel01He clenched his teeth and wanted to slap the smile off her face. With his composure recovered, he asked, “Are you hungry Bathsheba? You must be. Let us go and get some refreshment.”

“I would like you to come here.” She sat down on the bed, and patted a spot beside her. With a flip of her long black hair, she flirted, “Tell me what you have been up to Tabbruis. Where is the little woman anyway? She was very impressive. The Witch held me without even touching me.”

“Yes, I know, but she is not here now. She became angry, because I stayed by your bedside waiting for you to awaken. You know the type, very jealous?” He was glad she did not know about all of Charmeine’s powers. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When I wrote this,

I wanted the reader to understand how

regretful and angry Tabbruis was with himself,

let alone Bathsheba.

I have had times like that.

We are so mad at ourselves

but then the feelings are hard to control.

SEDITIOUS… sexy snippet is almost here!!! The 4th Novel “The Light-Bearer Series” by Emily Guido

GlowingHands-303x218Tabbruis saw Charmeine raise her hands, and light illuminated the forest like it was day. She was bathed in white light.

“You are an Angel who can rise above sedition, Charmeine. Your light is so pure.” 

“Hardly, far from it, Tabbruis,” she replied dismissively.

Her eyes opened wide with fear. “I see it. The snake is by your knee. Hold on.” With one pinpoint zap, the snake was propelled three hundred feet away.

As she approached him, she looked like the ‘Angel Charmeine’ he knew in Heaven. Love blazed from her body. In Heaven, she did not have the worries and troubles she had on Earth. Tabbruis closed his eyes and felt the peace she radiated and mumbled lethargically, “My love…”

She kneeled to look at the wound and put her hand on his leg.

He felt her hand emit warmth and well-being. He smiled and drowsily uttered, “You are, and always will be, an Angel glowing with light in my eyes.” 

Charmeine realized the snake venom was working very fast, and he was in serious danger. She hid her anxiousness and smiled. “Please, I’m anything but. It’s nothing. The light will go away in a minute. Let’s get you taken care of.”

Still aglow with bright light, she sat down next to him on the ground. She pulled her long blond hair to one side. “Tabbruis you need to drink to heal…” 

“I am fine.” He shook his head. The poison coursed its way through his body. He tried to get up, and fell back.

Charmeine touched his cheek and looked into his eyes.

The warmth which radiated from her hand made him happy.

“Tabbruis, drink.” She showered him in kisses on his neck.

Everywhere she kissed him, her lips left pleasant signatures on his skin. He began to moan with low growls as her heartbeat called to him. His nose broadened to take in her rose scented skin.

chama26Underneath her calmness, Charmeine was scared because he needed blood to heal, and fast! Seductively, she whispered, “My love, remember how it made us feel?” She brought her hands up to his face, and her heart skipped a beat as she noticed his head was cold and clammy. Now, she was terrified! Charmeine saw sweat pour off him. His eyes were red and watery. “Semper tua ero, Tabbruis,” and kissed him passionately.

His Blood-Hunter instinct and sexual desire took control. In a low feral growl, he gently pushed her down against the ground. He began to kiss and lick her neck.

Charmeine boiled with want and looked in his eyes. They were black with desire. “Yes, Tabbruis,” she panted with need as his hot, wet tongue ran from the bottom of her neck to her chin. She waited for him to take their union on a different plane of existence. Charmeine panted in expectation as her skin heated with the feel of his fangs against her neck. His moist, hot mouth kissed her. She touched her tongue to Tabbruis’ fangs, and her body went into a sexual body blush.

Her heartbeat was like an enchantress and called to Tabbruis’ blood which rushed through his veins. His desire overwhelmed him. He ran his hands up and down her body, and savored how she blushed wherever he touched her.

Finally, with a soft, feral growl, Tabbruis slowly bit into her neck and relished the luscious taste of her transcendent, sanguine liquid.

Sexual heat traveled up and down both of their bodies.

Tabbruis’ growl resonated through Charmeine’s bones and flesh. Once she felt the prick, the warmth went down her body. The first pull he made on her blood, she moaned because it felt so sensuous. Her physical appetite grew and pulled him closer.

They both were caught in the erotic pleasure of each other’s body.

4 Seditious Book Cover 1Charmeine noticed they were wrapped in a white light with no feeling of the outside world. It was like they were in a white nest which was comfortable.

Tabbruis felt warmth, but did not care. Her blood was too sweet and exquisite to care about anything else. Languorously, he relished every drop rushing over his tongue. He growled louder with the want to possess all of her.

Pulling up his shirt so she could feel his gorgeous flesh under her fingertips, Charmeine moaned and couldn’t fight the desire she felt.

Tabbruis pulled away from her and healed the wounds with a long lick of his tongue.

With his fangs exposed, she pulled him into a kiss.

Her tongue danced around his fangs, and it drove Tabbruis crazy with desire. 

Hungrily, she wanted to feel his skin next to hers.

One of my favorite quotes is what I was thinking while I wrote the passage above.

The Scarlet Letter (TV miniseries)

The Scarlet Letter (TV miniseries) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Let men tremble to win the hand of woman, unless they win along with it the utmost passion of her heart!

Else it may be their miserable fortune, when some mightier touch than their own may have awakened all her sensibilities, to be reproached even for the calm content, the marble image of happiness, which they will have imposed upon her as the warm reality.

~Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter

Bad News… from “SEDITIOUS” 4th Novel in “The Light-Bearer Series” by Emily Guido

4 Seditious Book Cover“I need to report to the Queen of Light and King of Darkness keeping order is impossible without an Elder Council and recruitment of Temple Guards,” he demanded with an ice-cold temperament. “We need leadership and authority or the whole system will fail. Humans will soon notice us, and it will be like the Crusades when no Blood-Hunter was safe.” 

“Oh my…. I am curious, why come here? Why not communicate by phone or Skype?” asked Dmitri.

“Please believe me,” the Head Guard replied, “I would not be here if I did not think it of necessary to provide escort to the Queen and King to Athens. Because of the lawlessness, their protection is important.”

Tabbruis stepped forward to speak.

However, Dmitri walked casually in the front, and shielded him while he inquired, “A show of power is needed?” He motioned for Tabbruis to back up.

“Yes, there will be a Blood-Hunter Assembly soon,” the Head Guard answered. “We need to see them now. That is all that we can tell you. The rest of our message is meant for them. Have we the pleasure of addressing the Queen or King?” as looked around at the family.

“Why not tell us all?” Tabbruis asked.

Dmitri turned and sent a telepathic look at him to keep out of it for now.

“Because our business is with them!” the Head Guard grumbled in frustration with all the questions.

Neal, in his role as Protector, walked in front of Tabbruis and Dmitri. “I suggest you tell us all. We do not know your full purpose. This could be an entrapment. However, if it is,” he looked around at the family, “you are much outnumbered.” Neal flexed his huge arms and stretched his muscles and threw a precise threat to them. With a big smile, he flashed his fangs, “I could take on all of you, only leaving the scraps for my brothers and sisters to deal with.”

Everyone laughed except the Guards.

The Head Temple Guard’s eyes became round with fear.

As she hovered above, Charmeine could see they were afraid. She whispered, “Very good Neal. They came on our land, uninvited.”

The Guards began to murmur, and the Head Guard pleaded, “Please listen to me! We did not come here to threaten or harm them. We really….” He took a big breath. “We came to ask for their help and warn them.”

“What do you need to warn them about?” Dmitri asked.

“There will be a Blood-Hunter assembly on March 3rd. Mars will be at Opposition and the face of the planet will be fully illuminated,” the Head Guard replied.

“March 3rd is only a few days away,” Shane blurted out.

“Precisely, the Assembly has planned this meeting for years.” The Head Guard nodded, and wiped his face. “We were hoping the lawlessness could be dealt with and more recruits for Temple Guards could be garnered during this congress.” Then with a face of exhaustion, he sighed, “However, we cannot enforce order, if they do not come. The Elder Temple has to show there is a law-enforcement agency still in operation since,” then he looked down, “the murder of the Elder Council.”

The family began to step forward in anger.

Dmitri threw himself in front of them. “Easy now, let us not go off half-cocked. We need to hear what they have to say, though they do not know the truth!” He glared at the Guards with his fangs exposed.

“Blood-Hunters cannot be allowed to reveal our existence to Humans as we will all perish. The Elder Council kept order, and we need authority now!” the Guard shouted. “The Prophecy said the Queen of Light and King of Darkness shall bring harmony and justice to the Blood-Hunters.”

Tabbruis’ face was devoid of emotion because to do so would have made him breakdown with fear. “Without their show of strength, we have no hope of bringing order to the chaos. Is that not right?”

“Yes, and there is no time to waste!” the Head Guard shouted with hopeful eyes.  

“Not so fast.” A curious Sandra stepped through the crowd.

The Head Guard threw hateful glance toward her.

She folded her arms across her chest, and put all her weight on her back leg with one foot which tapped the ground and asked calmly, “Why?”

The Guards became angry a Light-Bearer spoke to them.

“Why send four Guards including you, the Head Guard, at a time of such vulnerability?” she probed. “Huh, what about it?”

“You dare question me Light-Bearer?” he yelled with a red face.

Sandra just smiled.

Then, her countenance turned fierce. With clenched teeth, she chided, “Since you do not know if I am the Queen of Light or just any plain ‘ole Light-Bearer that can fry your ASS, I’m going to let that one comment pass. The next remark you make to disrespect me or any Light-Bearer, you will be on the menu at IHOP, as toast. Get it? Burnt to a crisp!”

She threw a warning shot of fire and blue lightning across the Guards igniting a bush and sent a boom of thunder in their ears.

“That’s my girl.” Charmeine quietly snickered. She loved Sandra’s spunk and bravado.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When I wrote the Character “Sandra” I fashioned her after my best girl friend.  

She is courageous, kind, loving but unlike Sandra in my book, she speaks her mind but quietly.  But she has a lot of maturity and backbone.  Backbone that I wish I had!  

“Sandra” in the book is like my gal-pal in that she is a beautiful Latino woman with backbone.  

LOVE HER!  

Sandra Gomez my best girlfriend, I love you.  This video is for you!
