Please meet D. F. Krieger, author of the Faxfire series. Erratic, artistic, and slightly insane; D. F. writes tales full of strange new worlds and creatures for her readers to discover. You can find writing advice and reviews from her on her blog, dfkrieger.blogspot.com. Or, if you wish to take a gander at her current projects, you can steal a glance on her site at dfkrieger.com. Today, in celebration of the release of her newest print book, Wolves and Warrants: Faxfire Series Book 2, she has offered a sneak peek at book 3, Butterflies and Bakeries.

"You talk about my magic as if it is alive and has a mind of its own," she protested.

"Feral instincts." The words were spoken right in her ear and she jumped as Veltis materialized beside her. "Instincts and cognitive thought war within us every day. Magic is a feral instinct and if left untreated, unbound by the chains of reason, it can cause reactions that are out of our control and will."

She gulped, understanding the point he was making all too well. "D-do you..." she stammered. "Do you have feral instincts?"

His eyes glittered dangerously as he leaned close, and sheer desire blasted through her body so hard she cried out and writhed on the couch. Instantly, her core ached with the need to be filled and her pussy grew wet.

"Oh, no, no, no." Magic jumped up and inserted himself between them. His fur stood on end and he hissed at Veltis while his tail thumping in anger and warning.

The intense want—no, need— for sex left her so quickly that Zeara jerked and dug her nails into the couch. "What the fuck was that?" she asked, between gasps.

"My instincts," Veltis replied with a dark chuckle.

She glared at him, trying to mask the fear that clenched at her heart. Throughout the past couple of days, she’d witness Veltis perform various acts that had been awe-inspiring, but she’d never grasped how powerful he was. She knew the demon had only given her a taste of what he was walling up, but somehow feeling all of what he caged made her afraid of him. "Lovely," she snapped as sarcastically as she could. "So your instincts are to hump everything in sight."

"Not everything," he said. "Just you."

We hope that you enjoyed this never-before-seen preview of Butterflies and Bakeries. Inquiring minds would like to know: If you had a demon to serve your every whim, what would you ask him or her to do for you?

Wolves and Warrants  200x300Book Blurb:Once you've discovered the Hidden World, you become part of it.

It was frightening at first, being overcome by this strange, invisible entity, but it was also empowering. The power was greater than Zeara, yet completely at her disposal, and she knew just what to do with it.

There is no rest for the weary as Zeara, Jake, and Magic are called upon by the very organization that threatened their lives. A murder investigation must take place in a local little town, but no one is quite sure who or what is dead, and why. It's up to the team to place all the puzzle pieces when people start dying. The problem is, the local sheriff doesn't want to cooperate and their most promising link to solving the case is in a psych ward. Can they solve it before another life is lost?

queen's wingsReviewed by Lynn Reynolds

This story is told in the first person. If you’re are on that is on the fence whether you want to try this book because it is told in the first person, please give it a try. You just might surprise yourself. One thing that is different about this book is that each chapter starts with a dragon rule.

There are dragons in New England – who knew! I’ll have to take a better look at my neighbors. Carolyn Donovan hears a song in her head by one of my favorite groups. If you like to listen to music as you read, you might want to play yourself some Queen. Carolyn knows what she is but has a hard time convincing anyone else.

Reed and Jack come to where Carolyn works. Jack is an experience to savor – and I’m not going to give you any hints. But if you need a reference – I can picture him with a very sexy drawl. If you want an actor reference – I think of him as Johnny Depp. There was one scene between Carolyn and Jack that had me glad that there was a strong breeze coming through the window. Reed to seems to be a man that broods a lot. But he also knows how to protect.

This was a very addicting book. With the descriptions Jamie uses, you will have no trouble picturing everything as each scene unfolds. I was happy that there was a thundershower going on at the time. The computer stayed off and I could get lost in this book. I was also glad that my dad watches TV with headphones on – I could laugh in peace. There are a lot of references that you may recognize and there was one that I hope I didn’t misinterpret. If I’m not mistaken there’s a reference to the Brady Bunch – you’ll just have to read the book and see if you can find it. It was a truly mesmerizing tale.

The only reason I gave this a rating of 4 ½ is because I want to enjoy the rest of the series. And then once the series is complete, and if the other books are as great as this one I can give the group a rating of 5. If you are a paranormal junkie then this is a book for you. If you were planning on traveling, depending on what your destination is, I would take this book with you.

Rating: ★★★★½

Women “Get” It

Women "Get" Itby Guest Blogger

I’ve often heard it said that a female author has a head start when it comes to writing romance because women are naturally more romantic than men.  In my experience, this isn’t necessarily an accurate assessment of men.  After all, if they weren’t at least a little romantic, how would they succeed in winning the […]
