Excerpt of the Prophecy

The Prophecy By Aline de Chevigny
Coming Soon from Forbidden Publications: Available Now Here:
The Prophecy


Danan McClintok is a Prince of Eloisia, an Immortal, who against all traditions wanted more from his life than to live in pampered pleasures, he wanted his one. An urge he could neither explain nor resist came over him and drew him to the seeing Stone and earth. Earth, where only the eccentric or the damned go.
There he spotted a woman who drew him like no other, she was kind and giving. He sensed a pureness in her that he wanted to embrace and protect. She was his one. He could feel it. But how could that be? She was mortal where he would live forever.
Against the wishes of his Queen, and the warnings of his friends, he courts this mysterious beauty that has captured his heart, to learn in the end that she is the answer to the age old Prophecy, of the foretold True King and Queen.

Excerpts # 2
"Hello, my precious one. Ready to call it a day yet?"
Removing her glasses, she placed them on her antique wooden desk and rubbed her hands over her face. "Is it five already?"
"It's five thirty, Melinda. You stood me up for our date. If I didn't know how dedicated you were to your patients, I would think you didn't like me anymore."
She looked up at him leaning up against the office doorway, his long, black hair gleaming in the sunlight shining through her office windows. His blue eyes glinted in amusement at his own joke.
She liked looking at him. She couldn't help thinking he’d been born in the wrong era. He reminded her of a forester or a lumberjack, all big and brawny, and he wanted to be with her.
"Tell me, Danan," she asked with the mischievous grin that made him grin back at her in response, "Why would you think that?"
He lay back on her sofa flashing his thousand watt smile she loved to see, playing along. "Well Doctor, my girl, she just left me waiting at the park. She was half an hour late."
"Maybe she got tied up?"
"So you think she's cheating on me?"
When he gave her the wide-eyed look he knew she couldn’t resist, Mel stuck her tongue out at him. "You sound awfully paranoid, Mr. McClintok, or is it possible you have a reason to believe this? Has she missed any other dates?"
"No, this was the first one."
Mel laughed. The last five months had been heavenly. She'd never been happier than she was right now and that was all due to Danan. He made her feel just as precious as he claimed she was. "Have you caught her looking at or flirting with other men?"
The wicked glint in his eyes melted her heart. "Has she said or done anything to make you believe that...” He reached for her, and attempted to pull her into his lap. “Mr. McClintock, really, control yourself." She giggled. "My boyfriend would be very angry. He's the jealous type, and what would your girl say?"
"Hopefully: kiss me you fool."
Melinda laughed at his antics. She was falling in love with this man. "You’re crazy, you loveable oaf."
"Not what I wanted to hear, but close enough. Now kiss me, Doctor. It's the recommended prescription for my mental distress."
Looking over him with feigned suspicion, Melinda sighed. "Well, since I did cause the symptoms, I suppose I should fix the problem." She allowed him to pull her out of her chair and onto his lap, her laughter bubbling free.
She brushed her fingers gently along his cheek, a small smile appearing when he sighed and leaned into her touch. "Are you terribly disappointed that I was late?"
"I'll let you know after you make it up to me, precious."
Mel took his face between her hands and leaned down to kiss him, a satisfied smile curving her lips at his needy growl. She let him pull her closer, deepening the kiss, wondering how much longer she'd be able to resist his charms. The fact that he didn't pressure her, that he was willing to wait until she was ready, touched her like no words ever could. She wanted him.

Eeeeeeee I have a new Cover

I just got my new cover for my latest sale to Red Rose Publications and it's awesome. My friend and crit partner Merris Hawk is the genius behind this brainstorm.

Here's a little Blurb and excerpt to tease you with until my release.

Nature's Whims


Ares had one goal, to become the most powerful of the old Gods. And now with Mother Nature missing, presumed dead, and the world in complete complete chaos, his wish was almost a reality. He never dreamed that the twenty first century could hold so much promise and power. Now was the time to act, he’d planned out ever contingency he could think of. Nothing could stop him. Nothing except her! How was he supposed to plan for something he neither saw coming nor ever expected to find. To make matters worse, he felt an attraction to her he couldn’t understand or resist, and he’d tried.

But Mother Nature was back. She’d been reincarnated into the body of a young woman with a quick wit and sharp tongue who didn’t have a clue. Now Ares had to make the most difficult decision of his immortal life. Does he help Desdemona Carpenter get both her powers and the elements under control or does he smite what could be true love and aim for the power he so desperately desires?

Excerpt : Unedited.

He walked to the opening of his tent and surveyed all that was his. Yes he missed the comforts of his home, but they held too many memories. Memories that even after months of planning and preparing still distracted him from his destiny. Yet he couldn’t deny that there was a pull, and urge to go after her that he fought with the iron will of a warrior.

Lightning flashed in a clear blue sky, and struck the only tree in the camp splitting it straight down the middle. The singed and burning wood reminded him that he had other more pressing things to worry about. For one he needed to find Gaia before she ruined all his carefully laid out plans. He needed to learn why she was working against him and where she received such power. It was time to return to Mount Olympus and speak with his family.

The earthquake hadn’t been the only disaster to hit the earth of late. Tornadoes, Tidal waves, Hurricanes and a record number of Volcanoes had become active all over the world. Always within his personal vicinity, and always killing his men just before they were ready to go to battle. He’d noted one other thing in his searches, the attacks always occurred while he was asleep and dreaming of her!

The dark circles under his eyes attested to the fact that he hadn’t been sleeping much of late. It was a good thing for him that a God needn’t much sleep. Those dreams always felt so real, so vibrant. Like Desi was there in the room with him.

Her lips would kiss him, her tongue teasingly run over his nipples, her teeth nipping him to distraction. Her hands would roam all over his ready and willing naked body beneath hers. She’d tease him to a fever pitch, her cries and moans of pleasure driving him insane with lust. Then when he’d be ready to scream in frustration she’d relinquish power to him to do with her as he pleased.

He always started the same way, he wasn’t sure why. But first he’d crush her to him and devour her mouth with a kiss of desperation, and only when he felt her desperation was as high as his, would he enter her. Thrusting deep inside of her, until he felt they’re bodies merge. Desi clinging to him with a desperation of her own whispering word of love and regret until they both climaxed together.

Ares shook himself out of the trance last night’s dream put him under. It was the first dream he’d allowed himself in weeks. Their lovemaking showed that. It had been quick and rough; like they’d both craved the others touch and couldn’t wait to come together. Once they caught their breaths, they’d come together again slowly this time, sensually.

He shook his head to dislodge the mental image; Desi was the last person he wanted to think about today. Today he needed to find Gaia! It was time to stop her from throwing her temper tantrums. He couldn’t rule the world as the supreme God if she destroyed it in her blind jealous rage.

Ares grabbed his cloak and left his tent. “Matius, I’m leaving you in charge of this group of recruits until I return. I want them ready; we put my plans into motion the moment I get back.

“Yes my God Ares.”

“No one is to enter my tent while I am away. If I sense a single presence in there I will kill the culprit with my bare hands. No matter the reason for their entrance.” To put weight behind his words with a wave of his hand Ares erected a barrier over the tent. He didn’t know how, but Desi came to him in that place and he didn’t want anyone desecrating the space in his absence.

The Perfect Hero By Aline de Chevigny Available Today.

The Perfect Hero By Aline de Chevigny
Available Now from Red Rose Publications:


Experiencing the worst case of writer’s block she’d ever faced, Cassandra Daniels feared she’d never finish her novel by deadline. In walked Nicolas Henry making her hopes rise. Will he be the answer to her Hero problems?

Or the end of her career and hope that true love actually exists.

Excerpts # 1

“So how shall we start this? Seeing how prepared you’ve been in the past, I’ll bet you have a list of questions ready for me.”
A list, damn, why hadn’t she thought of that? Looking up into Nicolas’s sea green eyes she knew the answer. He’d distracted her into forgetting and the only way that could happen would be if she were attracted to this man. With him in her life and preferably her bed, she could write the most amazing and highly erotic stories. Seeing the grin spreading across his face, Cassandra settled herself comfortably onto the nearest seat to gather her thoughts. “Let’s start with a series of questions.”
Nicolas sat across from her and leaned back in the chair. “What’s your first question? For you, I hold nothing back.”
Taking a deep breath, she opened her notebook and pulled out her pen. She hoped he didn’t notice she was winging it,. “Question one, if you saw a woman and were instantly attracted to her, what would you do to meet her? How far would you go?”
Nicolas grinned wolfishly, making her heart race in suspicion and desire. “I’d start by seeing if I knew anyone who knew her. If I did then I’d ask them to help me meet her. If they refused, I’d blackmail them into helping me.”
“If you didn’t know anyone?” She chose to ignore everything but his answers, it was safer while they were alone together. She couldn’t do anything she might regret later this way. Cassie knew she could process the information she gathered later tonight when she was safely at home.
“If I didn’t know anyone, then I’d create a situation to bring us together. No woman can resist me for long, my beautiful Cassandra.”
“Create how?” Cassie leaned forward so she wouldn’t miss a single word.
“For example, I could offer to help her with her research.”
Her pen slipped out of nerveless fingers at the direct hint. It stunned her that anyone could be so arrogant. She watched as Nicolas leaned forward to pick up the pen and hand it back to her. His lips close enough to kiss. With a quick shake of her head she leaned back to continue her questioning. “Question two, once you had said woman’s attention what would you do next?”
Nicolas eyed her thoughtfully for a few minutes before answering. “I’d get her alone and slowly charm my way into her every thought.”
Oh my! Fanning herself with her notebook Cassandra reminder herself to breathe. The man’s voice may be as soft as silk and caressed her every time he spoke, but he was research, nothing more. “Let’s say for… research purposes, that you’ve succeeded. How do you know you’ve reached your goal and what would you do next?”
Nicolas got up in one fluid movement and crossed to sit on the arm of her love seat, narrowing the distance between them until she was ready to either bolt or jump him. He ran his fingers seductively down the side of her face and leaned in close. “I’d tell her how beautiful she is and how much I’d like to get to know her better.”
Cassie started frantically writing, nervously in her notebook to distract herself from his nearness. “You never said how you’d know she was ready to hear that information?”
Nicolas chuckled and moved to sit beside her on the love seat. Cassandra couldn’t quite catch her breath with him sitting so close. She couldn’t decide if he was too close or not quite close enough.
