April's SWEET PERIL teaser


I have received messages via email and twitter threatening me not to do any funny business with today's SWEET PERIL teaser, seeing as how it's April Fool's and all.  What kind of evil person do you think I am?  LOL!  I would never...  :)

I now present your longest teaser yet.  Less than a month now, guys.  Love ya.

Ah. He had no idea what I was capable of now. I held a hand out. “Give me your knife.”
His eyebrows went together. “What?”
“Just give it to me.” I stepped closer, feeling edgy.
“No, Anna, I don’t know what you’re trying to do, but this is ridic—”
My movements were fast as I went for him full force, using all my body weight and strength to hook a foot behind his knee and slam my palm into his shoulder. He landed on his back with a surprised oof and I crouched over him.
“Give me your knife,” I said again.
“Holy . . .” Blake let out a long whistle from where he watched at the rail.
Kaidan lay there with a whimsical sort of look and said, “God, that was hot.”
I held out my hand. This time he fished the knife from his waistband and placed the onyx handle in my palm. From my crouched position I momentarily eyed a wooden bird statue perched at the top of the deck rail twenty feet away, then let the cool metal fly from my fingers. It spun through the air with a sound like rapid wing beats, then a whump as it stuck into the side of the bird’s head.
“Dude!” Blake yelled.
Beneath me, where Kaidan lay, burst a vivid cloud of red so brief I wondered if I’d imagined it. I stared down at him in shock.
“You showed your colors!” I said.
“Did not.” He pushed himself up and we both stood.
“You totally let ’em out, bro,” Blake told him with a grin.
“Shut up.”
When he peered down at me I said, “I’ve been training. I’m not completely helpless anymore.”
“I can see that,” he murmured.
We stood there, facing each other. Too much was between us, pulling us together at the same time as it pushed us apart. Our need for each other would always be in constant battle with our need to keep the other safe.

GAH!  I know you guys are excited to read it, but the wait has seriously been torture for me, too.  It's no fun writing a book when you have to wait forever to share it with the world!  So happy pub date is almost here.  Thank you to everyone who's preordered!

This week I received a special surprise - fanmade digital "tour posters" for Kaidan's band, Lascivious.  They are so cool!!!  Made by Jenny at www.supernaturalsnark.blogspot.com.  I am in love with them, and so flattered that she'd take the time to design these.  Enjoy!

  1. Ah, I adore the teaser and posters! I'm so excited for Sweet Peril... I'm rereading Sweet Evil right now so I can jump into the sequel when it gets published right away!

    1. Would you ever consider doing this scene in Kai's POV? I'm sure you have others lined up, but it'd be cool to see his FULL reaction to Anna's new skills. I also wanna know why he let his colors show. Was it an accident? To see how Anna reacted? I'm so curious! I just reread Chp 1 and Halloween from Kai's POV because I'm going through withdrawal. I also love the posters! They're so cool. Can't wait for Sweet Peril.

  6. That teaser was so cruel. I think we all just need to skip the month of April and jump right to the 30th. I swear, the moment that Amazon box appears on my doorstep, I won't be able to stop reading (and I really don't care if my family questions my sanity.) I do hope i don't read it *too* fast though or else pretty soon there won't be any left, and then what will we all do! Book withdrawal, anyone? That's definitely the worst part of reading a great book (just like Sweet Evil.) Anyway, thanks for an amazing teaser!

  15. Ah, what a tease, Wendy! Kaidan is in some serious trouble with this girl;-) And it's just the way I like it, lol. I think Jenny is a photoshop wizard. Seriously! She is one of my favorite bloggers and I am in awe of how she keeps up with everything and manages to be so great in all of it. She's superb! Ugh only a month left. This is gonna be torture!! *hugs*
