You can tell this author is romantic at heart, you can see it in her writing.

Tabbruis

Dimitri Blood-Hunter Brother of Tabbruis

He thought he was the only one of his kind, then he met Dimitri, he was the same as Tabbruis, didn’t feed on humans. Their kind are suppose to feed on humans, most of their kind do.

The Elder counsel would have them die in front of their kind if they found out they don’t feed on humans. Dimitri explained to Tabbruis that there are other entities out there called Light Bearers. They are enemies, they kill each other, they hunt each other down.

Tabbruis stayed with Dimitri for awhile and learned things from him, they became as close as brothers. Dimitri told Tab he lost his family because of the Elder counsel, he can’t wait to get even with them. Tabbruis has never been in love, but he vows to help when the time comes.

rain-uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuSomething is pulling him to NYC, so he leaves and goes there, he can’t help himself, he’s being drawn there.

He meets Charmeine there, is she the reason he was drawn there?

Tabbruis and Charmeine ~Can they be together?~

Tabbruis and Charmeine
~Can they be together?~

He goes to a concert and feels there’s a Blood Hunter stalking a human, Charmeine is the one the blood Hunter is stalking.

I really can’t say anymore, you’ll have to read it for yourself.

Slide1


Warmth . . . from “MACTUS” 2nd novel in “The Light-Bearer Series” by Emily Guido

download (1)“You always could lighten any situation with humor,” Charmeine started to laugh.

Shane reached to hold her hand and with a sincere look in his blue eyes softly uttered, “I always knew there was something special about you from the very first moment I saw you in the orphanage. I didn’t realize it, but you always acted like a mom. You were continually helping  me with your love and support.”

“I have always loved you, Shane. You know that, don’t you?”

“Yep, even when you would make me see ‘the error of my ways’,” his eyes glinted with a mischievous look.

“Seriously Shane. I wasn’t that bad,” she replied with a smirk.

He reached to hug Charmeine tightly. He whispered, “Char, you were my salvation. I can’t imagine what would have happened to me if I never met you.” He sighed, smiled and shook his head. “Hey, I think the breakfast is cold but I could use some food . . . Mom? Wow, it’s going to be funny getting used to calling you that.”

“Well, get used to it my baby boy.” She handed him a plate of eggs, bacon, cut up fruit and toast. She made a plate of fruit and toast for herself. “I guess it’s going to be pretty hard to explain that I am your mom, and Tabbruis is your father to Sandra, huh? I mean we are all almost the same age.”

download (2)“Nope, not with that voodoo stare Dad has.” He shook his head while taking huge bites, “Uh, Tab, I mean Dad can convince anyone to do anything. Sort of like Obi-Wan Kenobi in Mos Eisley, when he stares down the Imperial Storm troopers to let them pass, you know? I would love to have that trick up my sleeve.” He mock stared at her grinning wide while he was gulping his food down.

While they were eating, Charmeine wondered why Shane had not inherited their powers. Nevertheless, she thought it was better he was a normal human being. Earth was his world since he was a baby. Her mind was flinging question after question one right after another as she was eating.

252834966550682232_qLjqE2rZ_cTabbruis came into the room rubbing his hands together and smiling. Her eyes were raking in every aspect of him. How could I ever think he was a man? He’s more of an Adonis, she thought.

He had already showered, shaved and changed.

Dressed in black jeans and boots, Tabbruis wore a tight fitted black T-shirt which accented his perfect muscles and abs.

His deep, emerald green eyes were deep and hypnotizing.

His dark chestnut hair fell on his forehead and the rest of his multicolored hair was combed back.

Charmeine warmed when his pure, manly scent caught in her nose. The warmth she felt was like an electric current running down her spine.

Tabbruis’ eyes flashed dark green as he noticed her melting with desire.

As I wrote this,

I remembered all the times my mother and family

would comfort me.

We would joke around the kitchen table, all EIGHT of us!

We had each other, and I knew no different.

Families are rarely like that anymore.

Everyone is running to this lesson or that ball game.

But to this day . . .

I remember the family time, and I am warmed still

Their light… snippet from “MACTUS” 2nd novel in ‘The Light-Bearer Series’ by Emily Guido

imagesCAGAPA85Making a serious face, Shane sat on the floor by the couch holding her hand. “No Dad, I was always getting into trouble, and she was constantly bailing me out. No matter how hard I tried to lie, Char always knew when I was untruthful. So, it forced me to be honest with her.”

Shane’s face became filled with regret as he looked at his mom, Charmeine. “You see, Dad, I was caught with a bunch of the guys from the orphanage when we accidentally set fire to the tool shed. We were facing criminal charges of arson. The court was going to send us off to Westbury, Long Island Juvie prison. Char showed up at the Suffolk County Courthouse when we were sentenced. She insisted on speaking with the judge. The police had no evidence we set the fire intentionally. The gang went out to smoke in the tool shed because it was cold. But the cigarette butt wasn’t put out all the way, and it sparked a fire.”

JudgeShane shook his head, took a big breath. “She insisted all of us be given work detail and probation instead of serving time. Hell, she debated with the Judge! She argued that if the Prosecutor couldn’t show evidence of pre-meditation, no one got hurt, and the shed was valued at less than $1000, we weren’t guilty of a sentence which required jail time. 

“Well, even though the Judge was upset with her, he was thoroughly impressed by her argument. He made us serve our time at the orphanage doing year-round yard work. You name it. We did it. We raked leaves, shoveled snow, planted flowers, weeded and mowed. The custodians of the orphanage thought we were the best thing to come along since sliced bread because we did their work. To her credit, it kept us out of trouble and close to the orphanage.

md_3e76076b120653622130420-1

“The judge closed our records when we left the orphanage because she asked him to. She didn’t want us to start out with a scar on our permanent records, since we made amends.

“Char was . . . I mean Mom was the only light in my life as I grew up. It is appropriate Mom is a Light-Bearer. She was always my light.” He looked lovingly at her while tears fell down his cheeks. 

20130218-225718-1Seeing his son’s pain, Tabbruis wished he could take it away. He wiped the tears which fell from his son’s face and cupped his chin. Tenderly, he whispered, “Your mother is my light also.”

Get to know the gang at The Castle Charmeine in “The Light-Bearer Series” by Emily Guido

 

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 

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!

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

SandraSandra

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)

2002-long-blonde

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….

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 The dream… snippet from “CHARMEINE” 1st book in “The Light-Bearer Series”

angels,couple,photography,love,angel,conceptual-88b727d55cab723aea5864a5db7c8dbb_hTabbruis was dreaming as he was looking down hovering over the scene of white. He saw Charleen, and she was surrounded by clouds of white, soft pinks and blues. In the dream, he had on a white robe, a breast plate of gold, and a sword holstered at his side. Charleen had a white robe on and her hair was gathered to one side in curls. She was talking to him. However, she was calling him ‘Tabbruis’, his given name, and his heart warmed. In the dream scene, he held her in his arms. “Charmeine, you are my light and my breath. God has given the gift of our love to our family. We are truly blessed.”

They kissed and held each other close.

She whispered in his ear, “Tabbruis, I love you.”

“Semper tuus ero, Charmeine.”

“Semper tua ero, Tabbruis.”

The dream faded into misty clouds of white.

*****

It was light outside when Charleen awoke. She felt Tabbruis’ chest under her head which comforted her immediately.

He opened his eyes, and felt her stir on his chest. He held her tightly.

She smiled and said with a whisper, “You’re here. You didn’t leave me.”

200245626-001“No, I did not leave you.” He smiled and tenderly stroked her hair, “Actually, for some reason, I was very relaxed and fell asleep. Usually, I do not sleep.”

“I’m glad you did.” She smiled and yawned.

“I also had a good dream, which is unusual.” He closed his eyes recollecting the wonderful dream.

“Don’t you ever have good dreams, Tab?”

“Usually, no,” he furrowed his eyebrows. Then his face changed, and began to smile, “Though you were in my dream last night, and it was very good.”

Putting her chin on his chest, she said with wide eyes, “I had a dream, and you were in my dream too.”

“Well it is understandable, Charleen. We have had some pretty intense hours since we met.” He remembered the dream and smiled.

“Yes, but in my dream you called me a different name, Tab.” She was trying to think, “Let me see, it wasn’t Charleen. It was Charm . . .  something?” Then she furrowed her brow. “Charm . . .  Charm . . . ”

“Charmeine?” he cut her off and was shaking to his core.

“Yes, Charmeine. That’s it.” Then she furrowed her brow and asked, “How did you know that?” Not waiting for him to answer, she inquired with a wondering look, “Is your real name . . . Tabbruis?”

Again taken aback, his eyes widened, and he nodded slowly.

Tabbruis and Charleen both bolted up and sat across from each other instantly knowing they had the same dream.

Tabbruis was stunned!

Charleen was reeling!

tumblr_lbugygqnE51qb90czo1_500_thumb“Shane, I know Tabbruis was not telling us the truth,” she urgently looked him in eyes. “Something is not right. Whatever happens, you must take cover. Your father and I have powers and can protect ourselves and you. Do not interfere! Stay safe!”

Shane started to refuse.

“Promise me! I can’t lose you, Shane. Please promise me now!” 

“Yeah, I promise. Chill Char, it will be fine.” Shane rolled his eyes.

Neal slowly opened the door to the limo.

Suddenly, two Blood-Hunters came out of nowhere and began to attack.

Charmeine flew out of the limo to help. In a blink, the Blood-Hunter who attacked her before grabbed her. Now, there were three Blood-Hunters.

tumblr_lciiy2v5GP1qb90czo1_400_thumbShe surprised him with a rising knee strike aimed at his chest throwing him back. Her hands lit up with white electricity. “Touch me one more time, and you are dead!” She swung a swiping kick to his jaw, and it made the Blood-Hunter turn like a top.

At the worst time possible, Shane got out of the limo.

The Blood-Hunter ran and put him in a choke hold as Shane struggled to be released.

Neal and Tabbruis were still fighting the other two Blood-Hunters.

When Tabbruis saw Shane in the Blood-Hunter’s grasp, he screamed, “NO!”

Charmeine thought the only thing she could do was to get help. She threw a shock to the Blood-Hunter battling Tabbruis.

Then he bit into the attacker’s jugular. Blood poured out of him so fast they knew he would be dead in a minute.

Seeing this, the Blood-Hunter holding Shane became angry. He twisted Shane’s head back exposing his jugular ready to bite.

Tabbruis jumped high into the air landing his boot into his face.

He let Shane go reeling from the kick.

95898553-1“Now Charmeine!” Tabbruis yelled.

She threw a powerful strand of lightning at the Blood-Hunter.

He avoided it by jumping up out of the way.

Again, she threw another lightning shock and this time, it impacted him. The white lightning penetrated his body, and he lurched in pain as smoke arose from his charred clothes.

Shane started to attack him.

“Get on the plane now, Sergeant Kelly!”

He didn’t want to retreat, but he ran into the jet looking out of a window.

Neal, Tabbruis and Charmeine stood by the plane.

The two Blood-Hunters left started to laugh. The second Blood-Hunter got out a handgun and fired off two shots at Tabbruis and Neal. With superhuman speed, they ducked to avoid the shots. During the distraction, the Blood-Hunter who attacked Charmeine at Jones Beach seized her and sunk his long fangs in her neck.

Shane ran to save his mother.

193232640232024704_mPX7rwUg_fBut Neal stopped him. “We have to battle the other Blood-Hunter! You will be their next target! Get on the plane, Shane!”

Begrudgingly, he raced back up into the plane. Char was his responsibility and damned if he wasn’t going to help her.

Tabbruis stepped forward, but Neal held him back also.

The other Blood-Hunter walked to his friend whose teeth were still in Charmeine’s neck. Still brandishing the gun, he smiled as he bragged, “This was easier than I thought it would be, Brother.”

All of a sudden, a shot rang out. The Blood-Hunter with the gun had been shot with a bullet between the eyes. As he fell back, blood poured like a small fountain out of his head.

Neal and Tabbruis looked around and saw Shane behind them holding a large fifty caliber handgun like a sharpshooter.

All three ran to the Blood-Hunter holding Charmeine.

He lifted his mouth off of her neck. “If you walk another step near me, I will drink the last of her sweet blood.”

Tabbruis laughed, “I would like nothing better, but I would make one correction.”

“Oh yeah? This beach is about as perfect as they come and the cabanas are like apartments.”

Fountains_of_Wayne-Fountains_of_Wayne_(album_cover)“Oh really?” She smiled and said teasingly, “Well, the only thing missing from this wonderful beach is music. I don’t suppose you have any Blink-182, Fountains of Wayne, or Lady GaGa to listen to?”

Tabbruis shook his head while chuckling, “You may think that is music but . . . NO!” 

“So Tabbruis, I see it all now. Not married a day and already putting down my peeps,” she teasingly smirked.

“I do have some music. I can let you listen to it while we eat.”

With a questioning look, she whispered “Intriguing.”

They walked into the Cabana and put on robes.

He opened Champagne. As they were enjoying a glass, he turned on the stereo system, put down their glasses and reached for her hand. Her sparks were flying up his arm.

She's got a wayShe’s Got a Way” by Billy Joel started to play.

Tabbruis held Charmeine close while he drew her in his big arms and began to dance her around the room.

She blushed all over her body.

He whispered in her ear, “While I listened to this song, I decided to go to the concert where we met. This is the song was performed when we were on the ground looking up at the stars recovering from the attack. This song is about you, Charmeine. You have a way of making me feel happy for the first time in my life.”

She was speechless and started to well in tears.

Tabbruis held her tightly as they danced. They swayed back and forth to the music.

Charmeine and Tabbruis 1When the song was done, she looked up at him. “Let’s lay in the sun some more. Night will be upon us soon, and I want to soak up the day.”

Tabbruis nodded, “Of course.”

She kissed him, turned to go out to the beach. “See you out there,” and left.

Keeping his eyes peeled on her as she went to the blanket to layout, he said, “How right you are, Charmeine. How right you are. Darkness and danger will be all around us . . . very soon.”

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

NO ONE knows this . . .

When I got the idea of this story,

I was listening to this song.

I always loved Billy Joel.

Matter of fact, this song is not my favorite of his, but this song described Charmeine to a tee in her love, honesty, devotion and complete fierceness to protect her family. 

So folks, “The Light-Bearer Series” and Charmeine and Tabbruis

came to life in my head with this song . . .

Enjoy!

Lots of love and peace, Emily


Review of “Charmeine” the 1st book in “The Light-Bearer Series” by Author Jemima Pett

During my illness this summer.  I was unable to see all my fellow Author blog posts and like I usually TRY to do.  This review was virtually unseen by me.  I was stunned to find it on a Google search of all things . . .

WOW!

I was dancing around my living room last night like a crazy person.  What a surge to know that an Author you respect and admire has reviewed your book and didn’t throw it in the rubbish bin!

“Charmeine” along with the other books in “The Light-Bearer Series” has been revised and re-edited.  I am so glad that my Indie Authors and Published Authors respect that.  THANK YOU!

 

Book Review: Charmeine by Emily Guido

August 22, 2013 · by 

This isn’t my usual sort of book.  It is a YA/Adult Fantasy story with powerfully written paranormal romance and action sequences.  But it is well constructed, with a well-thought out backstory and world mythology, and it kept me interested.

1 CharmeineCharmeine is the first in the Lightbearer series.  Emily Guido introduces us first to the origins of the  Light-Bearers and Blood-Hunters, with some mythology in their original world, then we find Tabbruis on his own, trying to make sense of the earth. Blood-Hunters live here, encouraged by their Elder Council to make the most of the blood provided by the population of humans that spawns everywhere.  Tabbruis and some friends decide that humans are, for them, off-limits, which is a slight relief if the reader’s stomach is not up to the bloodthirstiness of their usual lifestyle.

Charleen (who we discover is really Charmeine) and her friend Shane are woven into the story deftly.  Two lost souls who ended up caring for each other as they grew up in an orphanage, Shane gets a job to drive Tabbruis around New York City while he’s visiting.  It’s fortunate that Tab has felt the need to be there, as Char has been singled out for an attack by other Blood-Hunters, who envisage a very nasty end for her indeed.  Tab fights them off, with Char discovering her own amazing powers that assist in very special ways.  And then Tab and Char realise their mutual attraction, against all Tab’s instincts as a Blood-Hunter – since he realises that Char is a Light-Bearer.

The rest of the story covers a few more attacks and how they grow to understand each other better.  There are plenty of loose ends to be followed up in the rest of series.

1 Charmeine Back CoverOn the whole I felt the story was well written, fast-moving and full of excellent imagery.  I cared what was happening to the characters; I wanted to know how it would be resolved.  I found the typesetting confusing since sometimes italics was used for thoughts, and other times it may have been used for intensity or emphasis, but there was no clear distinction.  I wondered if they thought-read at one stage, and thought that would be a nice power, but I think I was wrong.

I felt it was an excellent introduction to a story and a world with new rules. If it’s your sort of thing, I think you’ll be driven very quickly to the second in the series.  It’s exciting, pacy and thought-provoking, with delightful characterisation.  Well done Ms Guido!

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

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…

The Light-Bearer Series is not characters to me but emulations of what I wish we could ALL be!

Neal’s Song…


“ACCENDO” – Emotional snippet from the 3rd book from “THE LIGHT-BEARER SERIES” by Emily Guido

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_thumbTabbruis 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.

Accendo2Laura 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.”

Wwii_woman_worker-edit WRF800Laura 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.”

worried-man“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.”

“Yes doctor.”

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.

homemade lotion Peppermint Rose sept 11 2012 010They 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!!!


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!
