Something Wicked Featuring Addison Moore
|October 18, 2012||Posted by Jenn under Blog tours, Giveaway, Uncategorized|
So today is my FIRST day of the something wicked tour hosted by the lovely Heidi (who worked her tail off!) over at www.rainydayramblings.typepad.com and Eliza over at www.babblingaboutbooks.blogspot.com
And what a treat I have for you!
I am so lucky to have met some really amazing people over the last year and a half and Addison Moore is DEFINITELY one of those people.
She is seriously one of the most amazing Indie authors out there.
Besides penning a killer series that was optioned by 20th Century Fox, this lady really loves her fans and shows it.
No matter how busy she gets, she will respond to emails, FB posts and messages, tweets, her blog, her mom, my mom, and probably your mom too!
Addison Moore is everything that a great author should be.
Wicked talented, down to earth, humble, honest and most importantly, she loves her fans.
So, thank you AGAIN, Addy for agreeing to do this post for me!!!
Addy is SO AWESOME that she allowed me to be the one to do the big reveal post of her upcoming Novella for her Celestra series titled, ” Season Of The Witch” .
This novella will be from the wickedly frightening Ezrina’s POV about her and Nevermore’s (Heathcliff) relationship BEFORE the “Fall”.
Without further adieu, I give you the SNEAK PEEK!!!!!!
Season of the Witch/ Addison Moore
Ezrina’s Point of View
1692 Salem, Massachusetts
The bow father gave me last Christmas gleams in the light as I aim high to the uppermost bough of a Sycamore. A pale dove vies for my attention with her incessant cooing—her persistent ambition to disrupt the quiet of the forest around her. She juts her neck out and repositions herself to the distal tip of the branch and I let my arrow fly before she bolts into the atmosphere.
I rest my weapon at my side and watch as the arrow sails past her, and she soars off into the dark afternoon sky, grey as her wings.
“There’s a first,” a baritone voice thunders from behind. “Ezrina MacHatter misses by a mile. Must have been a faulty bow.” He winks into his delusion.
“It was less than an inch, and if I were hungry she would have been mine.” I glance over at him.
Heathcliff O’Hare stands erect with his chest out proud. His dark hair covers his head like a hat and the stubble of over his cheeks creates a shadow upon his comely features. His shirt lies opened down the front, most likely because he’s missing buttons. He’s unkempt that way.
“Aren’t you supposed to be off protecting Clara somewhere?” I take a deep breath and exhale, fascinated by the swirl of fog my lungs manage to yield. “You’re a scoundrel of the highest order.” Clara is my most obnoxious relation. She’s claimed him for herself from the beginning, even threatened to cause me bodily harm if I so much as looked in his direction. And here he is, staining the woods with his perfect effigy. My heart claps like thunder as he draws in close and I try to circle around him.
“Off so quick?” He steps in my path and for a moment I’m mesmerized by those pale blue eyes, an exact representation of a clear summer morning. “I hear these woods are haunted. Why don’t I linger by your side and protect you from any unwanted entities.”
“An unwanted entity stands before me.” I withhold the smile begging to take over.
His steely eyes narrow, his cheek depresses with pleasure as if my spite were somehow pleasing him.
“’Tis the season of the witch.” His brows rise.
“Your people.” I’m quick to counter—accurate as the ocean is deep.
“Perhaps they are yours. It’s Celestra they’re crucifying at the trials.” He takes a bold step forward, and I can feel the heat emanating off his skin.
A breath gets trapped in my throat and instinctually I molest the knife strapped to my inner thigh with its newly sharpened blade. Although, something in me doesn’t want to cut him, or tear the rest of his shirt off just for show, something in me very much likes the special brand of attention he’s lording over me.
“I wonder what Clara would think if she knew you were so quick to protect another?”
“I’m not interested in Clara. I’m interested in you.” He doesn’t waver his stare. The slight curve of a smile accentuates his features and a fire rips through me from the inside out.
He comes in close and dips in toward me, and my lips part ready to greet him.
“You’re a beautiful woman Ezrina MacHatter.” He breathes the words over me like a blessing. “But you know that, don’t you?” His cheek rises on the side as he mocks me and yet his devilish intent pulls me in even closer.
He’s going to do it. He’s going to kiss me, and Clara be damned, I just may impart one right back. The thought of Clara’s unique brand of wrath cools my blood and I pluck the blade from my thigh and slice the air between our noses.
“Shit.” He flinches back.
I hide my delight at his reaction and hurl the knife over his shoulder, aiming high into the boughs just beyond his frame.
A silver dove falls like lightning and lands with a thud near his feet.
“You took its head off,” he marvels.
“This time I was hungry.” I swipe my blade off the bed of pine needles. “Imagine the things I could do to you.” I bleed a dry smile.
His mouth opens with delight and suddenly I find his abnormally handsome features, vexing in every capacity.
“Yes.” His breath plumes, rife with seduction. “I do imagine the things you can do to me.”
How AWESOME IS THAT!?!?
