TWO POLLUTED BLACK-HEART ROMANCES Excerpt




SPEEDING TOWARD THE FUTURE


      Cade raced through traffic on his Honda CBR600RR sport bike. He could not shake the sound of Moselle’s words: Something unexpected has occurred. She needed his help, and he had never heard her sound so scared before.
      As he approached the hospital, he realized the large building was totally dark. He slowed and allowed his heightened senses to take it all in. Something’s very wrong here.
      Cade coasted his sport bike into the emergency room parking lot with the headlight off. If this was an ambush, stealth would be an asset. After parking between two large vans in the back of the lot, he moved cautiously toward the automatic sliding door that stood open.
      Head tilted back, he gazed up at the tall building. With a half-moon hanging behind it, the structure looked like a giant black stone. He shook his head. This is all wrong. 
      The scent of blood suddenly filled the air, but not what he would have normally smelled near a hospital. This blood was not tainted with disease—it smelled fresh.
      He watched as an elderly couple walked up the ramp outside the building. The man’s arm was wrapped in towels. Poor old guy probably cut himself.
      Cade stepped just clear of the car he stood beside as the wind shifted, and a new scent overwhelmed him: carbon monoxide. He fanned his scrunched-up nose. Where the hell could all that be coming from?
      Cade’s gaze returned to the couple.
      “I’m bleeding so much…I’m starting to feel dizzy,” the old man complained.
      The hospital. He was sure of it now.
      “Sir? Excuse me, sir?” Cade called out loudly.
      The old couple gasped when he ran up on them.
      “We don’t have anything. I’m hurt and just trying to get inside the damn hospital.”
      Cade heard the anger in the old man’s voice, but his eyes were drawn to the man’s cap. It had a large patch with several pins displayed on it, all symbols of the man’s status as an army veteran.
      “Vietnam?” Cade said softly.
      “What of it?”
      “I was there…briefly,” Cade said lifelessly.
      “I’ll never understand you kids and your desire to vacation someplace that I spent a whole damn year of my life suffering.”
      “It was hell,” Cade stated bluntly.
      “What do you want? Can’t you see I’m bleeding like a stuck pig?”
      The scent of carbon monoxide was clearly undetectable to them, but to Cade, it was as strong as bleach. It had no effect on his kind, but he knew it would kill the couple.
      “I just wanted to thank you for your service, sir.”
      “Well then…” The man trailed off, his head bobbing some. “Why’s the lights off?”
      “You need to get out of here,” Cade stated bluntly.
      “What?” the old woman said, finally joining the conversation.
      Cade turned to her. She looked tired and frail, out of breath from just helping her husband up the ramp. She won’t last long. The gas will overcome her quickly.
      “You both need to leave here now.” He was running out of options. With a quick glance into the dark hospital, he confirmed that the power was still off. No security cameras running. No witnesses.
      “Kid, be glad I left my sidearm at home or—”
      Cade bared his fangs and growled at the old couple. “Go! Get out of here! Go before I kill you both!”
      It worked; they turned and shuffled away as fast as they could.
      Cade sighed. He hated that he had to result to such a barbaric ploy, but he really did not want to see them die senseless deaths.
      After they sped off in an old Cadillac, Cade saluted the man and then finally entered the hospital.

The Water Kingdom Series wins a big award!



Hi all,

In January, I was nominated for two awards by the Paranormal Romance Guild.
 
THREE BURNING READ RUNAWAY BRIDES was nominated for Best Novel and The Water Kingdom itself was nominated for Best Series.

After a few weeks, the voting was done, and I was alerted that I won a big award.  

The Water Kingdom Series won 2nd Place in the Best Series Category.

YES!

This is a huge accomplishment. Granted, ONE SMOKING HOT FAIRY TAIL was nominated years back, and won First Place Best Novel...and TWO POLLUTED BLACK-HEART ROMANCES was nominated and won Second Place Best Novel. But I had not won an award for the series yet, and that was something I really wanted to be acknowledged for.

I put my heart and soul into these books and I get a lot of praise for them, but not many reviews are written and recorded on Amazon or Goodreads. Reviews are crucial. So winning an award here and there at least provides feedback that the fans and readers greatly appreciate my work.

I was asked this week if I would be writing any more to this series. Yes, I attend to start a new series that will take place during and right after the Water Kingdom. I will start in 2021. I would like to write a free supplemental story in the meantime.

Thanks again to everyone who supported and voted for me. I really love you all.

New Sabrina London character art!!!!

Hi all,

Sorry I have been absent from this blog. I have been gathering more art and making plans to write a supplemental Water Kingdom short story in 2020.

Here's a piece of art that was just finished last week. It's amazing and I love-love-love it!

Sabrina London (click and see a larger version of the art)
I enjoy anime and I love anime-style art and artists. This guy nailed it.

I always give artists I work with some creative license with the wings. Granted, in my eyes, and in the book, her wings are multi-color. But I like how he kept to the water theme and made them shimmering light blue.

I'm planning on having him do Moselle next. (maybe in a month or so.) I will also have Kevin West, who has done other character work for me, do a Moselle piece soon too.

I'd love to have a whole art book filled with different artists. Dare to dream...

Free Kindle Books this Weekend! One Smoking Hot Fairy Tail and Two Polluted Black-Heart Romances

Hi all,

Just a quick heads-up.  

One Smoking Hot Fairy Tail and Two Polluted Black-Heart Romances will be free this weekend in honor of my Wedding Anniversary and my beloved pooch, who passed this year,  Marshmallow. She would have been 13.



May 10th has always been special to me. My wedding day, and later, when I was celebrating my anniversary...my future best doggie friend was born. So every year I like(d) to celebrate this special day. I would take my wife, Colleen out. I'd get her a card and a gift. AND...I would get a cake and some doggie treats and have a birthday party for Marshmallow.

This year is different. Low key. Quiet. Sorta sad.

But I wanted to do something and giving away my books on Kindle seemed right. Especially since the first two are dedicated to my wife and poochie.

So today, Friday, and Saturday you can get One Smoking Hot Fairy Tail for FREE on Kindle. And on Saturday and Sunday you can get Two Polluted Black-Heart Romances FREE on Kindle.

Just search the titles or my name: Kevin James Breaux. There are links on this blog too.



Thanks all!

New Review of ONE SMOKING HOT FAIRY TAIL from All Things Dark & Dirty


One Smoking Hot Fairy Tail just received a really well thought out review from ALL THINGS DARK & DIRTY.



She gives it 4/5 stars on Amazon, but if you read her review you'd think she would give it 5. She loved it. And she has the rest of the series, so let's hope she posts a review of Two Polluted Black Heart Romances soon. See the quote below:


"There’s a lot of action and drama and the story is well paced keeping you entertained and involved.I enjoyed the stories about the different characters and how they came to be to where they were now in modern day world. A very different PNR read in a modern setting, with some hot sexy scenes mixed in with the drama, all in all I thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely read the next book in this series. Highly recommended reading." -- Claire Cronin.

Check out the review. Let me know what you think. Thanks all!
