New Beginning

Buy Ravished Before Sunrise HERE

by Emalee Black, heroine of Ravished Before Sunrise

Hello, I’m Ema from Lia Davis’s, Ravished Before Sunrise. Lia had asked me to come by and introduce myself and share what life’s been like since my one-night stand. And yes, I was ravished that night and *she lowers her voice to a whisper* every night since.

I’m an artist. I can paint, but enjoy sculpting more. There’s just something about working with my hands and creating something out of a hunk of clay. But being an artist isn’t my only talent. From as long as I can remember can see the paranormal. No not ghost, although I do see them too, but the magical signature of a were, or shifter, a vampire, demon, and any other supernatural being. I know they’re not human and they were threatened by that. My “gift” forced me to move into the coven with my BFF Beth.

My one night of passion and chance to act normal, or not so normal, changed the way I live my life. I no longer have to hide from the paranormal world. I’m still not well liked because of my succubus half, but I’m use to that. *she rolls her eyes and laughs* I’m happy that I am considered a “supernatural citizen”.

And my vampire, well he’s as yummy as ever and all mine. *she smiles*


Oh, I better go. That’s Katrina waiting on me. We’re meeting Beth for a girls day out. You know shopping, lunch, girl stuff.

Have a wonderful day and rest of the week!    

Born with the unusual ability to see what truly lies in the shadows, Emalee Black is stuck between two worlds, the paranormal and the human. Neither one accepts or understands her and she's forced to live a quiet, boring life in hiding. When her best friend mentions 1Night Stand dating service, Ema chooses a role-playing adventure straight out of her romantic fantasies. She's to hunt her very own vampire and have her wicked way him.

Vampire Darian Wyman is surprised when his daughter signs him up for a one-night stand with an exclusive matching agency. At first he's appalled by the idea, but as he reads the details of the date he becomes intrigued. For one night he will get away from the life he has long grown tired of to be hunted and captured by a would-be huntress. But he has plans of his own for his little vixen.

However, when Darian discovers the truth about Ema's inhuman abilities, the date could end before it gets started.

Emalee’s pulse raced as she drummed her fingers on her desk and searched the website. A giddiness she hadn’t known since senior prom ran through her. The site claimed unlimited possibilities, a chance for adventure. Could they mean it? Because she’d already seen things beyond what humans deemed possible. Hell, her whole existence was unimaginable. 
Her life had taken a lonesome turn when a friend she hadn’t seen since high school noted how much younger than the rest of her classmates she looked.  Her long-lasting youth had become a liability. Drawing too much attention to her unusual gift wouldn’t prove wise. In some cases, it could get her killed.  With no alternative, she’d closed the door on her life among humans and moved into the local witch coven, where everyone was different.

“What will you do?” Her best friend since preschool, a coven member in good standing, sat next to her for moral support and encouragement. Ema didn’t need much encouragement. The second Beth had mentioned a one-night stand, she’d been hooked. And Madame Eve’s dating service would save her from dying of boredom, at least for one night.

But could she go through with it? A wicked smile tugged at her lips and her inner voice said, “Hell, yeah.” Human strangers gave her a sense of safety. They knew nothing about her past or her unusual abilities.

“Just one night?” 

Lia will be giving away a $5 Amazon GC, 
a handmade book thong, and a swag pack.
