I’ve met Cara through following a link and doing flash fiction. Her first story in this series,Gaea’s Chosen: Mayday Direction, shows a great bit of world building and advancing of the story and it will be easy to read them in on sitting. Go over to her site, Cara Michaels where you can find a sample of both. Give it a go!

I shook my head. “You are my mate, Tegan. No one else.”

“I’m not, Marc.” Tears tracked slowly down her cheeks.

A man in black jeans and a battered leather jacket was crossing the street. He was immense, as tall as a tree, built like a linebacker, and he moved like a killer. True Colors – Thea Harrison

Not every woman got shot across the galaxy to get barefoot and pregnant by a man who loated her. Most probably didn’t wake up to find their mission completely screwed, either. – Gaea’s Chosen: The Mayday Directive – Cara Michaels

Cara can be found at: Cara Michaels. She also does a flash fiction contest every Monday, #MenageMonday.

When Sucks were depressed, lonely, or fatigued, there was one surefire way to make us feel better—food. We slid into booths at the local Pancake House and ordered stacks of pancakes in every flavor they carried. Zane sat in the booth next to me, ashtray and a cup of coffee parked in front of him. – Succubus Interrupted – Jill Myles

He felt like the only way to make this feeling go away was to kill. Phelps or himself, it didn’t really matter. Behind the man’s voice Ingram perceived another voice, a voice singing the same words in a harmony that made a mockery of any song that came before, that mocked any idea of love, or light or warmth. – Southern Gods – John Hornor Jacobs

“Why is that? You have a lovely name, a sexy voices, and you’re free tonight,” he said, his tone cajoling. “You’re at least an auxiliary member of the Alliance if you’re working for Giselle, so there won’t be any awkward to explain, like why I grow a tail sometimes.
