Get to know the gang at The Castle Charmeine…
Tabbruis – (Tab-bree-us)
Drop Dead Gorgeous
and Grecian living statue come to life
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.
Tabbruis 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!
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.
One of my favorite to die for characters!
OMG!! 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!
Hera is Dmitri’s beloved and gorgeous Grecian wife who comes back into his life and they mix it up!
But Dmitri is also a family man who is devoted to his children, Percival and the darling Athena!
(Dmitri and Hera’s Son) (Dmitri and Hera’s Daughter)
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!
I 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.
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.
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!
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!
Shane is just too yummy for words!
He is always cracking jokes and provides much comic relief but he is also built like a Viking Warrior!
He has long red hair, crystal clear blue eyes and built like a brick house! Shane has all the characteristics of his mother, Charmeine, a Light-Bearer and his father, Tabbruis, a Blood-Hunter.
He is strong in wisdom and is fiercely in love with his soul mate Sandra Gomez.
They are such a wonderful and dynamic couple!
Shane’s fiancee and spunky spitfire!
Sandra Gomez is 100 pounds of dynamite! She can do almost anything and is afraid of nothing.
She grew up in the Bronx barely surviving and went into the Army where she was recruited into Special Ops. That is where she met her soul mate Shane. They fell instantly in love and care for each other deeply.
She is a Light-Bearer and a Flame-Bearer also.
Also, she has a ‘killing’ sense of humor all wrapped up in one hell of a Feisty woman.
The Men at the Castle Charmeine are truly amazed by this smart, beautiful and deadly adversary!
Last but not least, CHARMEINE!
(aka Charleen, mild-mannered grade school teacher)
When Charmeine meets Tabbruis, it is like two stars colliding. The scene is electric with desire, attraction and heat!
She is light, love, honesty, beauty and courage wrapped into one package. Also, she is hot-tempered, jealous and blows up at times.
Loving and accepting of all the family at the Castle Charmeine. She draws them to her. She is also fiercely protective of Tabbruis and her family.
When Charmeine realizes her role as the Queen of the Light-Bearers, she takes the responsibility of saving humankind from all of Lucifer’s minions on Earth!
JUST FOR GOOD MEASURE….

Tabbruis stopped sobbing while his head laid on Charmeine’s lifeless body. He had a smile on his face and whispered into her ear, “Thank you for coming back to me. Semper tuus ero, my love.”
A brilliant luminosity started to run up and down her body. Tabbruis’ arms were tingling with electric heat. He knew this was a sign from God. She was being healed and returned to him. Tabbruis’ heart started to pump again. He muttered, “Thank you God.”
With a rush of wind and flash of light, she awoke.
Everyone gasped as they saw her body light up. They saw the wound on her head was completely healed.
She looked at Tabbruis, curved her lips in a weak smile and whispered, “I chose you and our family because you believed.” Then she turned her head passed out.
The family rushed to her.
Laura pushed through. “I’m a doctor.” She started to take rudimentary vital signs.
“Let me through.” Sandra started to assist Laura.
Laura lifted the lid to Charmeine’s eye. “She’s got weak vital signs. Sandra, keep checking her vitals. I’m checking her cranium for residual damage from the GSW. Don’t move her. I need to examine if she has a visible TBI or penetrating head trauma is a wound in which the shot breached the cranium but didn’t exit.”
Tabbruis was trying to clutch her away from Laura.
Thomas grabbed his arms. “Laura is a very good physician. Charmeine is in very good hands. Be calm Brother and believe.”
Tabbruis nodded, and let her out of his grasp. ‘Believe,’ the same word Charmeine left him with. He grabbed his arms and brought them across his chest. He smelled her blood. He unclenched his fists and brought his hands down in front of him and saw the sign of the cross with her blood on the back of his hands. Tabbruis held his hands together as in a prayer. “She has sacrificed everything for me and our family. Why will she not wake up? The wound is healed.”
Laura turned to him and reasoned, “Tabbruis, I know her injury was fatal. However, the good news is that I can’t find the entrance or exit of the bullet. She’s breathing and her heart is pumping. It’s as if she was healed by some unknown force.”
“Focus on that Tabbruis and let the doctor Laura work.” Dmitri put his hand on Tabbruis’ shoulder.
Dmitri, Shane and Thomas pulled Tabbruis off the ground.
“Mom is a fighter. She will be fine Dad.” Shane hugged him.
“I believe she is safe to move. I need to have more light. God, I wish I had my medical bag. Where I can give her a cursory exam?” Laura asked.
“Tabbruis take our Queen to your suite so she can rest,” Dmitri commanded. “Please everyone go to the castle through the entrance to the Grand Hall by the rose garden. Neal, Shane, Thomas and I need to set the field in order before daylight any humans see this.”
“We will start a funeral pyre in the far western corner of the field,” Neal said.
“Can someone get me a board and blankets?” Laura looked up.
“Yes doctor.” Thomas was not gone but seconds before he was back with the supplies she needed.
Laura kissed Thomas and thanked him.
Laura and Sandra began to construct a makeshift stretcher. “Sandra let’s move her slowly without any movement to our Queen’s head or spinal column.”
“Why is she not awake?” Tabbruis was worried.
“I don’t know for certain without proper diagnostic equipment Tabbruis.” She turned to Sandra and ordered, “When we examine her, let’s do a GCS rating.”
Sandra whispered to Shane, “She will be fine. I love you,” and kissed him.
“On my count, Sandra and Tabbruis, let’s lift and move her very slowly.” Laura was adamant about keeping her head and spine immobile.
When they reached their Master Suite, they placed Charmeine on the bed. Laura and Sandra went to the ‘his and hers’ bathroom sinks and started to wash up.
Laura directed, “We need to get her out of these things and clean up her head and hair to see if the blood is covering up another wound.”
“I will do that,” Tabbruis offered.
“Tabbruis, our Queen needs to be handled without any possible movement to her head and spinal column.”
She turned to Sandra and smiled, “I assume you have had training with that?”
Sandra responded clinically, “Of course doctor.”
“Tabbruis believe me when I say our Queen is in capable hands. Please do not take this the wrong way, but let Sandra and I do our jobs. God has put us here for a reason.”
“Yeah Dad, Mom’s in good hands with us.”
“Yes I know you she is Daughter. I am in both of your debts. I just…” He was about to break down with fear and walked to the terrace with his head down. He paced within earshot.
Since it was a cold night, the door to the terrace was only open a fraction of an inch. Laura and Sandra took off Charmeine’s Kevlar suit and cleaned her up inspecting her head and body for sign of trauma.
They were about to put on her pajamas but Tabbruis went into the bathroom and handed them the rose lotion which Charmeine loved. Welling in tears, he had thin pained lips and a creased brow. “Please put some of this on her legs and arms before dressing her for bed.”
Sandra uncapped the bottle. “God, it smells like Mom in a bottle.”
“Yes, Charmeine, or Mom, needs to wake up smelling like she is home.”
“She will be with us soon Dad. She’s tough and will be up and around in no time.” Sandra reached for Tabbruis’ hand and held it tightly.
One of my ALL TIME Favorite melodies… “Come Back to Me”… it so fits this scene. All of Tabbruis’ desperation and love pouring through Frank Sinatra’s beautiful and sultry voice! ENJOY!!!
