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!

SMOKIN’ HOT

VALENTINE’S DAY

Snippet from

“The Light-Bearer Series”

Tabbruis felt pain!

The poison coursed its way through his body. He tried to get up, and fell back.

david-gandy-15

 

“Drink, Tabbruis.”

She showered him in kisses and 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.

Underneath 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.

gfdCharmeine 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. Her skin heated with the feel of his fangs against her neck as his moist, hot mouth kissed her. She turned and touched her tongue to Tabbruis’ fangs, and her body went into a sexual body blush.

Charmeine’s heartbeat was like an siren’s call to Tabbruis’ ear. He felt the blood rush through her 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 low feral growl, he 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.

They both were caught in the erotic pleasure of each other’s body. Wrapped in a white light, they were in a nest which separated them from the rest of the world.

Languorously, Tabbruis 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.

n_sensual_hot_art_model_sexy_kiss_Couple_passion_amor_clo3_sex_passion_love_pics_Imagineglows_erotic_Lara_angie56_kissing_ilag_36_Soft_Couples_large_thumb

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 him crazy with desire.

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

His passion was in full gear. Charmeine’s golden hair tossed all around her head as he took off her top. He noticed her flesh was warm and electric.

Tabbruis and Charmeine were past the point of propriety and had no control over their immediate gratification. They wanted and needed each other.

As they dispatched their clothes, she smiled because he hungrily showered her body in kisses.

In a husky, low voice full of desire, he whispered, “From the first moment I saw you, I could have no one in my heart, but you, Charmeine. I will only want you for as long as I shall live. Our souls have been entwined.” 

Slide1-1Still in a cloud of white light, Tabbruis began to make love to Charmeine, as he stared into her eyes. He took her hands and put them palm to palm.

Their telepathic connection was sealed. As they continued to make love, tears ran down her face.

Are you hurt, my love? he asked in his thoughts.

These are not tears of hurt or pain, but tears of joy, Tabbruis.

He kissed her tears. You are my strength, light, and gift from God, Charmeine.

Tabbruis, you are my heart. I thank God He made me for you.

Always. I am forever yours, Charmeine!’

Suddenly, intense white light began to radiate from their union which lit up the trees around them.

It was at that moment in ecstasy, Tabbruis and Charmeine noticed their hearts started to beat in unison again.

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

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?

4 Seditious Book Cover 1

“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.”

Interview of the men in The Light-Bearer Series


377303_4040958076419_1469625629_n (2)This is Emily Guido reporting to you live from the “Castle Charmeine” in Romania.

I have been waiting for the interview for several days now. 

I didn’t know what to expect but when these gentlemen came in… I am (swallow) pleasantly surprised to say the least… (swoon)…

Gentlemen,Good Evening!

ALL: Good Evening.

 

Emily:  Let me start out with a general question just to break the ice.  Do all four of you live at the ‘Castle Charmeine’?

ALL:  Yes.

 

Dover-CastleEmily:  Now, who originally owned this enormous and ancient castle?

Tabbruis (in a slight European accent):  I think Dmitri should answer that one.

Dmitri (in a very thick Romanian accent): Oh my… Well, you see my dear; I came to Romania a long time ago, over 5000 years ago, as a matter of fact. 

(Chuckling)

I had many experiences here and some of the local townfolk used to make up a scary bedtime story about me… the “Red Dragon” is what they called me. 

But then Tabbruis came, and we began to share the castle.

 

6a00d83451f4a069e2014e89ddd499970d-800wiEmily:  Excuse me?  (wide open eyes) What do you mean by “Red Dragon”?

Dmitri:  Oh my… Well, my dear, Emily that is “Dracul” to you and I.

 

Emily:  Uh….Dracula?

Dmitri:  Well, my love, if you want to think it is me. Oh my…that is fine for me.

(Smiling at Emily with his bright white teeth and long eye-teeth)

 

Slide1-1Emily:  Oh!  Well that’s okay… (a little scared… turning to Tabbruis now…)  

Tabbruis please tell me about yourself?  

(Still looking out of the corner of my eye at Dmitri who is smiling at me like a cat watching a canary)

Tabbruis:  I… well I am just a happy man now that I have Charmeine. 

She is my love, my wife, and she literally lights up my life. 

Before I met my soul mate, I was incomplete…  I do not know how to explain it…

Thomas:  He was all alone.  Tabbruis accepted it, but he was not happy?

Tabbruis:  Yes, quite right.  I never thought I would ever be mated to a woman.  However, now that I have my soul mate, Charmeine, she is my universe.

 

EdSpeleers3Emily:  Well Thomas since you spoke up?  How are you today?

Thomas:  Yes, well… I am fine.  We are very busy at the castle expanding and renovating. 

There is a lot of family to accommodate, and we are constructing new rooms right now.

NealNeal (In a gruff African accent):  My lover and Husband, Hameal, and I are constructing new additions to the Castle Charmeine. Hameal is skillfully assisting me.  

However, you three are trying to get me killed or at the very least permanently injured!

Tabbruis: I am sorry Neal. I became distracted… Charmeine was just so beautiful in her dress, that I could not concentrate.

Neal:  That is no excuse for not paying attention; it was a power nail gun!

  

Emily (snickering):  So I take it there was a mishap with a tool in the renovations?

mDmitri:  Oh my…

Yes well…

Tabbruis did not look where he was going…

Consequently he shot a nail, and it landed in my good friend and protector, Neal…

Thomas (laughing out loud):  He shot him in the butt!

Dmitri:  Oh my… yes but… (excuse the pun) everything is fine. 

We, Blood-Hunters, heal very fast my dear Emily.

Tabbruis:  Thank God for that!

 

Emily:  So… on another subject… gentlemen, um tell me you are all so incredibly gorgeous, are all Blood-Hunters like you?

Dmitri:  Oh my… well, I believe we are all classically handsome…

(giving a wink to Emily… *she swoons*)

 An image from the Dolce & Gabbana watch campaignTabbruis:  Dmitri… I think she means that we are some sort of eye-candy for the ladies.

 Dmitri:  Oh my… I wonder what kind of candy I am?

(looking at Emily with his eyebrow raised)

 Thomas (little squeak):  I am… well yes ma’am… we are all… UGH!

 Neal:  Yes!  I believe all Blood-Hunters are pretty good looking, but my love, Hameal is incredibly gorgeous!

 Tabbruis:  Neal means that Blood-Hunters, in general, are good looking… (Rolling his eyes)

 

Emily:  I’m getting something of an undercurrent to this question?  Is there?

Dmitri:  Oh my… see my love, Emily, we are all good-looking to the ladies.  Yes, very much so. 

Thomas:  But we did not ask to be so good-looking… I guess it comes just natural?

 The MEN of the Castle Charmeine  

            Dmitri           Thomas             Tabbruis           Neal

Emily: (fanning myself with my notebook):   You all…  I mean are all Blood-Hunters good-looking?

Tabbruis:  Well women seem to be naturally attracted to us.

 

Emily (gets a drink of water… starting to get dizzy looking at these wowser men):  How could women not be attracted?

Neal (gruffly):  Do not look!

Thomas:  She is a human woman.  She cannot help but be attracted.  Neal, just because you are not attracted to her does not mean she cannot look.

Neal:  Well, I am certainly no woman’s eye candy!

Dmitri:  Oh my… (as he purrs to Emily)

 

Emily (trying to avoid Dmitri but loving every minute):  Have you had women falling over you before?

Tabbruis:  Many times… but I waited 8000 years for Charmeine, my love!

Thomas:  I… I am taking the fifth on that!

Dmitri:  Oh my!

Neal:  Never… Thank God!

 

12756856294JmmmlEmily (pulling my hair up and taking a big gulp of water):  Tabbruis, can you tell me your favorite past time at the Castle Charmeine?

Tabbruis: That is easy, spoiling my love, Charmeine.  We have two horses, Tristan and Isolde, which we ride and go down to our private beach.  (Tabbruis smiled in revelry)

 

sexy-couple-on-beach-sideEmily:  Private beach?

Dmitri:  The Castle Charmeine has a beach flanking its property on one side, so we ride out there every chance we get.

Neal:  Yes, Tabbruis and Charmeine are out there quite a lot.

Tabbruis:  I will have to admit that Charmeine and I love the beach.  I just want her to happy.  I love Charmeine so much…

Thomas, Dmitri and Neal:  We know!!!

Emily:  Well, on that thought, (wetting my lips down and fanning myself) I will end this lovely interview. 

It certainly has been fun interviewing the “MEN FROM CASTLE CHARMEINE!”

SEDITIOUS 4th book “The Light-Bearer Series” another 5 Star Review & Why I Wrote it!

We, or I mean writers, all started as readers . . .

John Quinlan

John Quinlan (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

My first draw to reading was that I was fascinated by the Paranormal Romance. I’m sure my love for all things that are romance came from my ‘cookie-cutter’ image of my Prince Charming like in Sleeping Beauty.

However, the Paranormal came out of the feeling that there is something mystic out there in the universe.  I was born and raised Roman Catholic and went to Catholic school from K-12, so if you know anything about Catholicism, you know that transformation and God’s hand changes elements of bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ.

So, from early on, I know there were other forces out there of Good and Evil.  When I became a fully human being meaning as I grew up.  I learned about Eastern Philosophy and Good Karma and Bad Karma.  What I give out to the world, is given back to me.  If I sow Bad Karma. . . I am sure to get it back 10 fold.

4 Seditious Book CoverWhy did I write, Seditious, the fourth novel in “The Light-Bearer Series”?  Because believe it or not, I wanted Charmeine and Tabbruis, my star-crossed lovers, to come against what we normal folks deal with from time to time.

I wanted my hero and heroine to have troubles with trust, money, disloyalty, separation, redemption and most of all, forgiving someone you love who has hurt you without conditions or ultimatums.  It seemed that I needed to portray my super-human lovers as a regular husband and wife.

I finished three Young Adult  books, Charmeine, Mactus and Accendo before this and I thought I could make “The Light-Bearer Series” last forever if I wished.  There seemed to be endless manuscripts for my head to conjure up.

I had to reassess my work and how I was going to progress forward. I write Paranormal Romance, because I love to read it.  So, with that notion in hand, I am forging more of “The Light-Bearer Series” because it seems to come naturally to me.

The Characters have become a family to me.  From what I hear from people who read past the first novel is that they are family to them also.  Don’t take it from me, just see the reviews.

Now that my passion or past-time is making my readers happy, there are plenty more on the horizon.

Anything to do with love, particularly forbidden love, I will almost go backward trying to make it work as a writer. I can pick and choose my villains and make them twist and turn.

Believe it or not, I write from Tabbruis’ point of view a lot.  I love getting into his complicated, dark and broody Blood-Hunter mind.  The doubting hero’s viewpoint is much more interesting.

In addition, I hate making women in my novels weak. . . Damsel in Distress has been done.  It is time to see some Take Charge and Kick ‘em in the Ass Heroines and that is why Charmeine is sweet, kind and loving, but vicious and brutal when you mess with her family!

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

Here is another 5 star review of Seditious…

“Seditious” is the perfect title for this novel! Ms. Guido captured jealously, deceit, and restoration of love flawlessly. This novel shows a side to Tabbruis and Charmeine’s relationship which will throw any reader of “The Light-Bearer Series” off kilter. “Seditious” is the continuation of their romantic and turbulent love story and mission on Earth to battle Lucifer’s minions!

Life at the ‘Castle Charmeine’ is blissful until reality of the ruling the Elder Council of the Blood-Hunters causes decent.  This fourth novel also adds unexpected depth to both Tabbruis and Dmitri’s personalities, humanizing both men.

Lord Cromwell is a lethal Blood-Hunter who has escaped the Elder Council Prison. He sends his beautiful agent to cause destruction to those who live at the Castle Charmeine.

6704372_l (1)Bathsheba is a deadly, sexy, and vicious siren who threatens Charmeine and Baby Hunter. Not just with her present actions, but, with the past she shares with Tabbruis and Dmitri.

As Bathsheba lays injured, Tabbruis and Dmitri relive their agonizing and painful past with her. However, Charmeine is emotionally and physically threatened by Bathsheba and escapes to protect her unborn child.

This is the story of a family which works together to unravel Bathsheba’s deadly secrets. Just when you think they are in the clear, a more heinous and ominous villain waits in the wings to tear apart our ill-fated lovers, Charmeine and Tabbruis.

“Seditious” is a heart-wrenching and exciting story of passion, betrayal, and redemption you will not want to miss!

4 Seditious Book CoverI was given an e-copy of Seditious (The Light Bearer Series #4) by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank You Emily!!

Where to start? This installment has a lot of emotions woven through the words, betrayal, love, evil, hurt, faith, trust, and sensuality.

Charmeine and Tabbruis are going through so much as their LOVE for each other is diabolically tested. It threw me for a loop to read along as they went through the heartfelt scenes that were depicted so clearly. The twists and turns kept me up way into the night as I had to know what would happen next. The characters are awesome, personable, and lovable.

I adore this series. Why? Because it speaks to the hardcore romantic within me, it leaves the sensual scenes up to the readers imagination, and it so uniquely refreshing.

I recommend this series to all the YA Paranormal Readers out there. Go Get Ya Some!

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

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

4 Seditious Book Cover

Down the corridor, Dmitri pulled Hera into a small study.

Deep inside her heart, Hera was still hurt. Even though she understood about how Bathsheba clouded his judgment, she could not understand how he could fall to pieces again. With this in mind, she most certainly did not want to be pulled anywhere by him. 

He closed the door, and immediately held her against his body so she could not leave his grasp. 

“Dmitri, release me now!” 

“I will not release you until you have forgiven me, Hera.” He bent down, and kissed her cheek.

“You have my forgiveness, now let me go!” she grumbled with clenched teeth.

“No, Hera…” he sighed with a lilt of shame. “I want you to forgive me,” and his eyes became pools of tears.

She could see his regret and offered, “Let your mind be finally at rest Dmitri. I believe you are truly sorry for your actions. I also believe you were tricked and deceived by Lucifer who sent the Witch.”

Suddenly, Hera hugged him as to hold his gorgeous body closer to her. With desperation, she pleaded, “My love, I ask your forgiveness too.”

“What?” He pulled away to look in her eyes. 

“For years Dmitri, I have harbored covetous jealousy toward you and Bathsheba. But, it was unfair to think you had any obligation to your deceased wife. You did not know I was in Heaven waiting to be released of my hold.”

“My lovely Hera, I understand. There is nothing to forgive,” he sighed as he shook his head.  

“That is exactly how I feel, Dmitri.” She threw herself into his embrace.

He held her close and wrapped his large arms around her tightly. Dmitri kissed her neck and whispered with a sexy tenor in his voice, “Hera, are you ready for this my dear?”

“No, but I will make do.” She looked away to avoid his eyes.

“When we get in there, do not hold back my love. Let me have it, as they say nowadays.” He took her face in his hands and growled with passion. “My divine Hera, I love you. As much as I regret my actions all those years ago, you can punish me until the end of time, and it will not take my shame away.”

“You should not carry that shame, Dmitri. Let it go. Release all the negative feelings you have. I love you, and I know you love me.” Tears streamed down Hera’s face.

He wiped each one as they fell.

“When I was a little girl, my dreams were filled with images of you. When we stared at each other across the crowded Agora Market Square, I knew you were my soul mate.” She released the tie which tucked away his long hair, and ran her fingers through it. Her body responded in kind to his sexual charisma and held him closer.

“You saw me in your dreams before we met? I never knew that, Hera. You should have told me,” he uttered while he enjoyed her touch.

She wet her lips, looked up through her thick lashes and replied, “Dmitri, even though you were my soul mate, I did enjoy the chase.”

He closed his eyes and smiled with the pleasure that Hera loved him at first sight.

“Dmitri, it does not take a mathematician to know the equation: love, plus love, equals love.”

chama26

As he burned with passion, Dmitri took her face in his hands, and kissed her sweet lips. The kiss turned into an explosion of want and sexual need. He pushed her against the wall.

Hera moaned, gripped him harder, and burrowed her fingernails into his backbone to keep a close embrace on him. She surrounded her legs around his waist.

He growled with pleasure.

Their desire was in the air like a warm energy which passed through them. They liquefied against the wall of the study, almost to the point of no return. Breathless with passion, they pulled away from each other.

“Now, that is what I call a makeup kiss, Dmitri.” She saw his eyes had become blue pinpoints from want.

“Hera, after this duty is over, I will come to you, and as they say…” he took her hands, pushed them against the wall palms up as pink light pulsed through their bodies which made every part warm and stimulated, “…you have not seen anything yet.”

“Husband,” she whispered, “I will be waiting for you to come to me,” and winked at him. Hera took a big breath and advised, “Unless you want to explain to the children the facts of life, you better calm down.”

Again, they pulled away from each other hot with passion.

“I will always have the need to kiss you, to be near you, to love you, my beautiful wife.”

Hera took the tie and began to gather his hair back into a ponytail.

Dmitri smiled because it felt good to have her hands in his hair. “I will show you that you are my one and only love.” He kissed her again with softness. As he let go of her, he could see her body blush as she bit her lip in anticipation.

Sunset at Galley Bay in Antigua, W.I

Sunset at Galley Bay in Antigua, W.I (Photo credit: Emilio Santacoloma)

Charmeine rented a private beach bungalow at the Galley Bay Hotel. She swam in the ocean and enjoyed the warm sun and water. Because it was so clear, she could see right to the ocean floor.

Her throat was parched and needed something to drink. She decided to come in for a rest, but hated to leave the water. To sit was a bit tricky because her belly had grown bigger, so she carefully lowered herself down on the blanket. Charmeine rubbed her belly as Baby Hunter turned inside because hunger panged throughout her body. She grabbed the water bottle and drank the liquid down in seconds.

Since she arrived in Antigua, Charmeine was lonely and hungry. She left the castle in a rush and did not take enough money. Because of Tabbruis’ wealth, she did not want to use a credit card. He would be able to track her down immediately, and she needed time to think. However, she barely had enough for rent on the bungalow, but not for much else.

As Charmeine dried herself, she thought about Tabbruis. In her heart, she wanted him and remembered the happy days they spent on the castle’s private beach in Romania. Softly, she muttered with tears welling in her eyes, “Tabbruis, you would have loved being here as much as we do. Am I right, Baby Hunter? Daddy would have loved this?”  

She felt the baby start to kick a lot. All of a sudden, she heard…

“I love being here with you, Charmeine, and Baby Hunter,” Tabbruis whispered.

gfd.gifShocked and slightly on guard… she pointed her electrified hands at Tabbruis ready to defend herself. In a strangely calm way she asked with emphasis, “Are you, or anyone else, here to hurt my baby or kidnap me?” 

“No, it is just me! I would never hurt you or Baby Hunter!” He regained his composure and confessed, “Please believe me, Charmeine. I came because I need to beg your forgiveness.” 

His eyes said it all; she knew he said the truth. 

Slowly, as if in a dream, Charmeine looked at Tabbruis’ body as the sun silhouetted it like he was an outer world being…an Angel. He was gorgeous. She could not help but rake her eyes over him. Tabbruis had a GQ Island outfit on with a tight t-shirt. She could see the muscles in his arms, chest and abs. He also had a pair of Banana Republic shorts on, which emphasized his powerful legs. His emerald eyes were in pinpoints with desire.

Her hands went down to the blanket to shift her weight.

He saw her adjust and pleaded, “Charmeine, do not run away from me. Please let me explain.”

“I’m not running anywhere,” she smirked. “I’m getting comfortable. If I stay in one position too long, I have to shift, because Baby Hunter will put pressure on whatever internal organ he or she is laying on.”

“May I touch…?” he asked, as he tentatively sat down beside her.

“Sure, Baby Hunter knows you are here, this is the most active he or she has been in days.”

Charmeine wore a swimming suit with a sports bra and boy shorts.

couple-mans-hand-on-pregn_ENWhen he touched her naked belly, it felt warm with lots of kicks from Baby Hunter.

She blushed with his touch and had to admit it felt good to have his strong hand on her.

“I think Baby Hunter is giving me high fives,” he described. He smiled and laughed, “I do not know how it is possible, but you have gotten bigger, Charmeine.”

“Oh, it’s possible,” she responded with a grin. “Unfortunately, I’ll get a lot bigger before Baby Hunter makes his or her appearance.”

“I have missed this,” his eyes brimmed with tears.

“You missed me getting beat up inside by my own child?” she laughed and laid back on the blanket to rest.

Tabbruis chuckled, laid on his side with one hand under his head. His other hand was on her belly. “No, I missed this, Charmeine. Talking to you, having my hand on Baby Hunter, and looking in your eyes. There is nowhere else I would like to be.” 

“I know you are telling me the truth. I see it in your eyes,” she sighed and gently confessed, “I have missed this too, Tabbruis.” 

He lit up with a smile and sighed with a far off look on his face.

“Why?” She studied his expression and asked, “Why are you smiling?”

“I am remembering one of the first times you called me, Tabbruis. It melted my heart when you said it sweetly like you did just now.”

Fondly she pouted and remembered, “Ah yes, it was back at the Ritz-Carlton, and you were angry because we had the same dream. I said you should call the ‘Dream Police’.” 

He started to laugh, and to his surprise, Baby Hunter jumped. “Did you feel that Charmeine?” 

“Are you nuts?” She grinned. “Are you mental? I feel everything.”

He began to laugh, and the baby jumped up and down again.

“Baby Hunter likes it when you laugh, just like…like me, Tabbruis.” She rubbed side of her belly.

He stretched out his fingers, took Charmeine’s hand and put it on top of Baby Hunter under his. To his amazement, tendrils of light danced around both of their hands.

She yawned and closed her eyes.

forgiveness

“Charmeine?” and saw she was asleep in an instant.

He looked at the light which surrounded his hand, and it became soft with an occasional glow. He was so happy to touch her again, tears streamed down his cheeks.

Tabbruis pressed a gentle kiss on her forehead and said in a soft voice, “Though I was far away, you were in my heart Charmeine. You will always be with me, because you are the light in my dark soul. I am lost without your love. I was such a stupid fool and need you to forgive me.”

She did not hear his declaration, but Tabbruis felt her heart skip a beat.

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

Ahh, well Seditious is really heating up

things between our star-crossed lovers,

Tabbruis and Charmeine

Real Forgiveness… 

We all need to do practice it.

It may hurt our wounds, but it cools our memory.

Lots of love,

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!

From “Seditious” 4th Novel in “The Light-Bearer Series”

“Wait a minute. I have to ask, Tabbruis.

You and Dmitri served in the American Army through the Revolutionary War, Civil War, World War I, World War II, and Korea?”

Tabbruis’ head lowered and answered, “Yes, you see, Charmeine, Dmitri and I loved America and the values the Constitution of the United States afforded its citizens.

We live in Romania, but in our hearts, we feel like we are Americans because the sacrifice for freedom and honor is the greatest gift a man or woman can give to their fellow countrymen.”

She was in awe of the rich history and experiences he had.

Then, she thought how much death he had seen.

BOOK TRAILER FOR SEDITIOUS AND RANSOM


Heating up… preview “SEDITIOUS” the 4th Novel in “The Light-Bearer Series” 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.”

“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.

Charmeine asked, “You knew each other then?”

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.

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

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.”

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 he 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.”

Things are heating up!

A friend told me last week, “Seditious is one of those novels that really make you sit on the edge of your seat.”

I took that as a real compliment, and it made my day!  I was smiling from ear to ear.

I hope today you have a good thing said to that makes your day!
