Excerpt 
"Like a good piece of chocolate"








“Don’t mind my bed. I didn’t have a chance to make it yet.”

I heard a light chuckle escape him and resonate in the hall behind me. “Well, we’re not going anywhere near your bed. I mean, you’re just taking me up to your bedroom to allow me to clean up and that’s it, right?”

My heart pounded in my chest. I turned around in silence.

He looked at me the way I sometimes looked at a piece of really good chocolate.

One look and a million fiery tingles sparked along my skin and wrapped me like a blanket. My nipples became taut. My knees became weak. My mouth became dry.

“Luna, am I correct?” he asked with persistence.


“Um ... t-that’s correct.”


“So whether the bed is made or not shouldn’t matter.”


My nervous laughter sounded again as I hastily made my way to the bedroom. To make matters worse, he continued on the subject. 

“Of course, if we were coming up to your bedroom to do‘that’, then not having the bed made makes it a little more convenient, wouldn’t you say? And if you’re one of those women who keep a million pillows for decoration...” He trailed off.


I laughed even harder like that cartoon character. It made me sick to my stomach just hearing it.


My bedroom was completely ensconced in darkness. There wasn’t even a slither of light shining through the seams of my curtains. I couldn’t see my mystery man, but I felt his unmistakable presence in the room. “I’ll light some candles. Wait here.”


















When is it real? When is it fantasy?

For Luna Kalen, the line between reality and a dream is hard to recognize.

Recovering from a car accident, the solitude at the coast is meant to be therapeutic. But Luna soon finds it more than her idle mind can handle.

After exploring a dangerous stretch of shoreline, Luna returns home with a mysterious man she discovers in a cave. Little does Luna know that this man is about to fill her world with sinful pleasures…and blood-thirsty vampires.

When reality and fantasy collide, unimaginable dangers lurk, revelations are revealed, and darkest desires are fulfilled.

But if you think the happily ever after is the sign of the ending, it’s really only the beginning.

Should Luna have listened to the warning?

Do not go into the cave.





Multi-published author Maya DeLeina was born and raised on the beautiful and romantic beaches of Oahu, Hawaii. Relocating to Colorado, Maya's crystal blue oceans and powdery white sands were traded for enchanting forests, mystic mountains and golden plains of promise.


Living just on the outskirts of Manitou Springs, the town's history of spiritual healing, eclectic flare, fabled underground tunnels and rumored lore of wizardry and witchcraft rekindled Maya's love for the paranormal, metaphysical and most of all, vampires. One bite and she was hooked.


With a hint of incense lofting in the air and the majestic Pikes Peak sitting in picture perfect view from her windows, Maya can be found relaxing in the recesses of her comfy couch, sinking her teeth into crafting and weaving seducing and erotic tales of vampires that may or may not roam her beloved town. One read and you'll be hooked!







Keep the Scintillation going...
