Glamour Blade

a House Millar novel

August 18, 2015
Encompass Ink, Teen (CHBB Publishing) 
New Adult Paranormal Romance

Sometimes the greatest hope is found when two hearts find their truth and their home.

When Rory Ó Cuinn—a Sidhe warrior, knight, and noble—is sent by the Sidhe Queen’s Council to reestablish the magically enhanced vampire hunters known as Guardians, he doesn’t question his mission.

Lord Lorccán is a rare vampire noble, as he only kills humans who are far more monster then not. When he meets Mistress Anya from the House Millar, he believes he’s found an ally in creating a warrior class to police the vampires and protect the innocent—human and vampire alike.

Sidhe nobles aren’t meant to love the damned and Rory fights against a rising attraction for Lor, just as Lor pushes every one of Rory’s buttons—mostly on purpose.

When they team up, using both their magics and knowledge to save those that matter most to them and find possible future Guardians, their predesigned realities and perceptions change and twist. As love, hate, passion, and betrayal collide, the only question left is which emotions the pair will grasp and hold.

Summary of Blood’s Voice


Anya Millar had no memory of her life or an instruction manual on how to navigate the insane world of humans, biting, and reality. Instead, Anya has had to learn to navigate the world of love, life, and sanity while avoiding those that would see her dead or enslaved.

Anya must come to terms with who she is and her missing past, Nicholas must win back the object of his eternal love while dealing with new cravings in his silent heart, and Declán must learn to destroy the very creatures that he has unequivocally given his heart and blood.

This is the ongoing journey of Anya and Nicholas, human loving vampires and the human they love, Declán. What makes it all more complicated is that they are abominations in their own world and Declán is a natural born vampire hunter called a Guardian.

 

“Blood’s Voice is a dark paranormal story. The author does an excellent job of creating real and fascinating characters you can’t help but want to know more about. It was unique and an original spin on vampires. You won’t be disappointed. Clues to Anya’s lost past will keep you turning page after page to find out her secrets. Romance. Suspense. Action. Don’t miss it.” – Krystal Shannan




Autism Speaks 2014

Can you believe more children will be diagnosed with autism this year than AIDS, pediatric cancer and diabetes combined?

Good morning everyone,

I don’t often speak on here about personal matters, but this is a topic near and dear to my heart and so, I would like to ask for your help and support for Autism, in all it’s various forms.

As the mother of two boys with Aspergers and another that is suspected to have PDD or Aspergers, I am walking and joining the efforts to help raise money, awareness, and compassion for those with all forms of Autism! Yep, me and my bad self on forearm crutches will be walking along side my 15 yo son (he’s a proud Aspie, btw) in downtown Milwaukee in April 2014.

Autism is a complex brain disorder that often inhibits a person’s ability to communicate, respond to their surroundings or form relationships with others. Autism spectrum disorders affect people of all racial, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds.

In March 2012, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued their ADDM autism prevalence report. The report concluded that the prevalence of autism had risen to 1 in every 88 births in the United States and almost 1 in 54 boys. The spotlight shown on autism as a result of the prevalence increase opens opportunities for the nation to consider how to serve these families facing a lifetime of supports for their children. This news makes it more common than pediatric cancer, diabetes, and AIDS combined. And the numbers are still rising! Currently the cause of autism is unknown. There are no specific medical treatments or a cure for autism. Most people with autism require lifelong supervision and care. Only 7% of children with autism go on to be independent.

Recent studies suggest that more than 1 million Americans are living with an autism spectrum disorder. Despite the strikingly high prevalence of autism, autism research remains one of the lowest funded areas of medical research by both public and private sources. But funding for research is woefully inadequate. Only through biomedical research will we ever understand what causes autism and develop methods to diagnose autism. Someday, with your help, we will find a cure!

Please consider supporting our efforts both with financial support for the walk and by helping to educate others so wonderful people, like my boys, can be seen for who they are, not just the disorder they happen to have. They are so much more than that!

Below I have included both my (on left) donate button and RedWolf’s (right) donate button. Please help us make a difference for our family and for others like us that need support, education, a brighter future.

Thank you for supporting Autism Speaks. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.

Aine

 

Please consider supporting "Walk Now for Autism Speaks"!



Please keep these families in your thoughts, prayers, etc…

As a mother, I’m horrified

As the child and grandchild of teachers, I am terrified

20 children and 7 adults (as of last time I heard) were shot and killed by ONE man while trying to learn and grow. They did nothing but show up for school! My heart breaks for all the families devastated by this horrid atrocity. . .

Please take a moment to hug your children, say I love you to your loved ones, cherish even the annoying things your beloved friends and family do, for they may not be there tomorrow, so love them with all you have!

“Again!” Geoff barked.

His voice dripped annoyance, as usual. He had me training like Declán, though I didn’t train with Declán. They – Geoff, Jonathan, Nicholas, and Louie – had all certified Declán ‘insane and ready’ to use his skills for something other than ‘playing’ with them. Okay, so he’s not technically insane, I just worry about my human love risking his life hunting our kind – well, the murderous vampires anyway. Annoyingly enough, I still wasn’t allowed to even watch him practice. “This time pretend you actually want to do damage.” Geoff sighed.

Scowling back at him, I retook my stance. I wasn’t allowed to speak. That was considered cheating. We were working on one-on-one combat today, though I still didn’t see why. If it wasn’t at least small groups, then why would I need to fight physically?

“The rules of engagement are simple, Anya – strike. No mercy – strike. Once the commitment is made – kill. Don’t let them touch you – destroy. You cannot appear weak – annihilate. There will be times you can’t rely on your voice as you saw already during your rescue of Nicholas. How would you have fared without being able to fight? Also, it might help you focus some of those cravings that have awakened within you.” Geoff continued with his lecture as he attacked again.

He claimed that I needed to learn not to hyper-focus on just the combat. That I must learn to hear and see all around me, never letting my focus settle for too long. While I understood the logic, and even agreed, I preferred to use my voice to solve issues rather than violence. Okay, so I’m a weird vampire . . . What else is new?

Running forward, I dropped down, catching him hard in the hip, spinning him up and back into a wall. Seemed he hadn’t expected that form of attack. Good. He rolled before I could get to him again, but was unable to make it back to his feet. With a growl, I landed atop him, slamming him to the ground, knees in his back with my nails into the back of his neck. I barely remembered not to  dig them in. From out of nowhere, strong arms pulled me back and slammed me to the floor. I didn’t even feel the hit. It didn’t register at first who held me, as I managed to evade the attempt to pin me.

The growling continued as I flipped around landing a solid kick to the ribs of my attacker while trying to keep up with where Geoff was. He again attempted to strike at me, catching my arm enough to cause mild pain but not clamping down, allowing me to spin out of his grasp and avoid the attempted blow to my back. Nicholas!

It didn’t matter that there were now two attackers coming from different directions. I leapt up to grab the beam above, and the two crashed into each other. Memories of trainings I’d had before may be lacking, but my instincts to survive worked just fine, much to everyone’s confusion and annoyance.

Dropping back down and into a low crouch, I moved forward as they untangled their legs. Springing on Nicholas, I slammed him down on top of Geoff and bent to nip the back of his neck before sliding away. “Stop,” I commanded.

Both Nicholas and Geoff stopped moving. They didn’t even breathe Hmm, Nicholas is bleeding, guess I should do something to fix that. “You both can talk. Just no attacking right now, please.

“Now, Nicholas, a mhuirnín, you’re bleeding. Geoff, are you hurt any?” Were they mad?

The guys separated, moving to either side of me. Geoff appeared  hurt.

“Um, ow! What was that?” Nicholas asked looking a little wild as he reached up to touch his neck. “You actually bit me!” He looked angry. Oops.

“Sorry, but you attacked me. It was only a nip,” I said defensively. They both should’ve been glad I restrained myself, pulling such stunts! “Stop messing with it, so I can heal you.”

Moving behind Nicholas to heal the small gash in his neck, I spoke to Geoff. “Are you hurt? You’re not standing quite right. And just what was all that about? I nearly took both your heads off.”

“Bloody hell, Anya. This was supposed to be sparing practice.  Spar-ring. You weren’t supposed to actually kill us. I think you broke something; luckily I heal fast.” Geoffrey tenderly touched his side while making a sour face in my direction. “Were you planning to kill us or did restraint come to mind at some point?” he snapped.

“I was restrained, thank you very much. I made sure not to drive my fingers into your neck, leaving your head neatly attached and unharmed. I only nipped Nicholas as opposed to what could have happened. And, if I recall your initial instructions, I was supposed to strike without weakness or mercy. Now will you believe that this is too dangerous? I have no desire to harm either of you, especially not considering you got Nicholas in on this. It’s so hard not to let myself get caught up in the power and pleasure of using my strength.

“I’ve tried to make you all understand that this is not a game for me. I know what I am capable of and you, Nicholas,” I grumbled, folding my arms across my chest. “You, of all people, should know better. What if I’d lost control and really hurt you? I couldn’t bear that. Please,” I begged. I understood they wanted to make me powerful and protected, but this was not safe for them.

“Maybe she’s right, Geoff. I know she could have done much worse with only a little more effort. I’d hate to be the one she actually wanted to hurt.” Nicholas rubbed absently at the now healed spot on his neck.

“Um, I suppose,” Geoff sulked. “I just worry about her getting taken or destroyed while she’s out running around. She so rarely thinks of her own protection.

“I would imagine you’re exquisite to watch in true combat sis, but I think I’d like that to not be with me again. At least not for a while. I’m going up and see if Peony would like to play nurse.”

As he shuffled towards the stairs, I noticed his right hip was also not moving correctly. He’d be fine shortly, healing being easy for us, but it bothered me that I managed to hurt them both while restrained. This was the precise issue that made me so afraid, again, of my relationship with Declán. I hated what Marcus and his House., had turned me into – like being a vampire wasn’t deadly enough . . . no, they had to torture me until I cracked. Yet without what I was now . . . how would I protect my family?
