New Release! Serpent’s Kiss By Lisabet Sarai (@lisabetsarai) #Paranormal #Shifters #Mayan #Mythology #Guatemala #FatedMates #Tikal #Ritual #Quetzlcoatl #Reincarnation #Apocalypse

Blurb

When a woman atoning for past sins heals the human avatar of an ancient god, she’s drawn into a perilous dance of destiny and desire.

From the first, Dr. Elena Navarro senses that the wounded man she discovers outside the gate of her rural clinic is not an ordinary mortal. With his chest ripped open, Jorge Pélikal still demonstrates unnatural strength and power. Elena is irresistibly attracted to Jorge, although he warns her their coupling could open the gates of chaos and cost her life. Despite his dire predictions, they fall in love. Gradually Elena comes to understand that Jorge is a supernatural player in a cosmic drama that will determine the fate of the earth and of mankind—and that even if he triumphs in his apocalyptic struggle with his nemesis, she may lose him forever.

Note: Serpent’s Kiss was previously published by Totally Entwined. This new edition has been re-edited, revised and expanded.

Reader Advisory: This book may not be appropriate for individuals with a fear of snakes.

Excerpt:

Doctora!” The voice rose out of the darkness—the voice of the man who had vanished that morning from a sealed room, leaving no trace but a brilliant, multi-colored feather. As if conjured by her thoughts, Jorge Pélikal emerged from the shadows. He waited at the foot of the steps, mutely requesting her permission to ascend.

He looked far healthier than when she had seen him last. His step was firm and strong, with no indication that he was in pain. His hair cascaded over his shoulders, gleaming in the light of the rising moon. She could not see his face—he was still too distant—but she could smell him. Vanilla and wood-smoke—the same scents that were evoked by the mysterious token she had found under the bed.

He was dressed in rough-woven trousers and a peasant’s cotton tunic, all in white. His skin, in contrast, was a deep cocoa-brown.

Elena’s heart rose into her throat. He was beautiful. He was dangerous—she sensed this—not because of what he might do, but because of who he was. But who exactly was he?

“Jorge! Why did you run away?” She gestured for him to join her on the porch. In an instant, he stood in front of her, a half-smile on his full lips.

He grasped her hands. His skin was cool now, and moist like the jungle night. His fever is gone, she thought gratefully. Joy bubbled up in her chest. She almost laughed. She had thought that she would never see him again.

“I had no choice. I was in grave danger. And by remaining in your clinic, I was placing you in danger.”

“Moving when your chest has been ripped open and is held together by nothing more than a few feeble stitches wasn’t exactly the safest thing to do,” she scolded. “But I’m happy to see that you’re so much better.”

“Much better, thanks to you…Elena.” He squeezed her hands. Desire raced through her, sharp, irrational, irresistible. “I’m sorry that I had to return and place you at risk once again. But I left something behind. Something important.”

“I know. I have it, hidden safely away.”

He searched her face, apparently trying to determine how much she knew about the feather. “Give it to me, then, and I’ll leave you in peace.”

“No.”

“What?”

“No—I don’t want you to go. I’ll give you the feather, but only if you promise to spend the night with me.” Listening to herself, Elena was appalled. What was she saying?

She had not planned this. She was keeping the feather for him and had honestly intended to return it. But now she wanted him, with a single-mindedness that drove out all reason. She would do anything to satisfy this uncharacteristic craving. She could not let him escape again.

He cupped her cheek in one of his strong brown hands. Elena nearly swooned.

“You don’t know what you’re asking. It’s not possible.”

“I know what I want. What I need. And I won’t return the feather until you give it to me.”

He removed his hand, leaving her mourning for his touch. “I could force you.” Though his voice was soft, his words rang with power.

“Go ahead and try.” Elena’s words were defiant, but there were tears in her eyes.

“You don’t understand what you ask. If we couple, you and I, we will open the gates of chaos.” He hovered close, leaning over her, gazing into her eyes. His scent made her dizzy.

“I don’t care. So be it.”

“No. I dare not, Señora.” Taking a step backward, he glanced around the porch, as if seeking a way to push past her and enter the clinic. She moved to block the door, legs apart and hands on her hips.

Perplexity marked his handsome features. She didn’t doubt he was strong enough to physically overpower her, but he seemed reluctant to do so.

“Please.” Now his voice held a note of supplication. “Be reasonable, Elena.”

“Don’t you want me?”

“What I want does not matter. I must do my duty and refuse you. The tasks before me will be difficult enough without the distraction of love.”

Love? That wasn’t what she was asking for, was it? The desire that raged through her seemed as far from love as a fierce hurricane from a gentle spring shower. At the same time, her intuition told her that a single night in Jorge’s arms would never be enough.

Binge Romance Reads to Your Heart’s Content With Kobo Plus (@kobo @kobodeals) #kobo #koboplus

Hi lovelies,

I know lots of you are binge readers. I also know that times are hard and people don’t always have lots of spare cash to spend on books. Which is why Kobo Plus is so amazing. For those of you not familiar with Kobo, they’re a retailer based out of Canada, but you can use their site from most countries, and Kobo Plus is available in the following countries: US, AU, CA, UK, IT, NZ, and NL. You don’t need a dedicated Kobo eReader (although they are available, if you’d like one), you can simply download the app to your phone or tablet ready to read wherever, whenever!

So what is Kobo Plus?

It’s a borrowing service similar to Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited – only better, and cheaper (and from an author’s perspective, brilliant, because we don’t have to be exclusive to Kobo)! For a monthly fee (and you can get a month’s free trial to check it out), you get access to as many titles as you’d like, with no restrictions. You can even pay a little bit more and add audiobooks, too (way cheaper than Audible)! There’s more info here if you’d like it, or directly on Kobo’s site.

Okay, you’ve piqued my interest. So whose books can I check out, then?

As well as almost all of my eBooks and a handful of my audiobooks, as part of a Kobo Plus subscription, you can also dive into amazing reads by authors such as Roxie Noir, Abbie Zanders, Erin Wright, Lynn Burke, Shelley Munro, Jill Westwood, Serena Bell, ReGina Welling, Abigail Keam, Sarah Wallace, Susan Griscom, Jackie Lau, Chelle Bliss, TB Mann, Madelynne Ellis, Jessica Marting, Joanne Wadsworth, Cecilia Randell, Demelza Carlton, Rebecca Hefner, Cat Johnson, Erika Wilde, Lauren Fraser and many, many more – all for just one amazing monthly price.

All right, so where do I go then?

Don’t worry, I’ve got you. I have two links for you. One is for the more visual shoppers among you – check out the yummy covers and get clicking: https://www.kobo.com/us/en/p/kobo-plus-romance-binge

And the other page is for those of you who like to pick and choose. It lists tropes and keywords so you can drill down into what you’d really like to read, here: https://www.koboplusromancebinge.com

These are hand-selected romances, put together to give you quick and easy access, and as such, the pages (not the books themselves, they’ll be in the Kobo Plus programme as long as the authors keep them there. Certainly in my case, I plan that to be indefinitely) are only available for a limited time. So if you plan to find out what all the fuss is all about – be quick!

Happy Bingeing!
