Excerpt from “Phoenix Enraged”, “Nympho” Series Part Two

I’m giving “Phoenix Enraged” its final polish, and thought I’d share an excerpt from the story with you. This is especially aimed at those of you who have been asking me when Part Two is coming out (early/mid Oct., looks like). Hope this helps your jonesing. 🙂


Whisper

I open my eyes. Wish they’d killed me.

Not really, but the throbbing in my skull… Hammer against anvil. I can’t see anything. Realize I have a cloth bag over my head.

I’m lying on my back. Feels like a thin mattress beneath me. Steel springs poking. Try to sit up, but I can’t. Something around my wrists, my ankles. Leather, feels like. Cuffs? Not like that’s never happened, but not like this.

I listen.

My own breathing. Hold my breath.

Dripping.

Water. Somewhere… I’m in a room. I sniff. Dank. Musty. That old concrete smell. Water drip-drop-plop.

Maybe a basement. Feels like. Sounds… Well, no sounds, but I get that weight feeling, like there’s a building on top of me—

Shit. Deedee!

I almost call out for her. Stop myself. I don’t know where I am, who took me. Took us. We aren’t dead, so that means they want something.

Me?

Is it Slater? I ran from him. He seemed to care about me, but with men you never know till you cross them. And I crossed him by running. Slater… he’s dangerous. He made me feel safe… But he had me then. He doesn’t have me now.

Am I here because I ran? If so, where is he? If he thinks I’m his property, he can go fuck himself! He had me fooled, oh yeah. Big, mean, and protective, and I thought he meant to protect me. But then, what Deedee told me she overheard at Telly’s—the women’s shelter where we were staying—led me to believe Slater might be part of the fucking skin trade here in Havensea.

My eyes get wet. I had believed in him. I thought he cared about me. But whoever Telly was talking to, she was talking about me. Deedee said Telly—Theresa Tellingsworth—sells women. The shelter is a honeypot. A way to lure in desperate girls who have no one and nothing, and then auction them on the skin markets.

My belly churns at the thought of Slater being involved in that. How could I have been so wrong? I’d let him touch me. I’d let him… I’d let him fuck me. Fuck, I could barely keep from throwing myself at him!

Deedee.

Time to punish myself later. If I live. Where is Deedee?

  1. I’ve just powered through both books and am utterly obsessed with Slater, Whisper, Deedee, and Jace…but when can we expect book 3???

    1. Hi Melony,
      Glad you’re enjoying the Nympho” series. Right now I’m looking at a mid-November release date on Part Three, “Raven Unfurled”. I’ll be posting an excerpt from the new book here on my blog soon, so stay tuned. Thanks for reading.
