Fire and Ice

"Better than the first time"

The glorious kiss unfolded.

He opened his mouth slowly, coaxing and enticing her to take a slow and sensual journey with him.

Accepting his offer, she opened wider and dipped her tongue in his mouth. She savored his taste, one she suddenly realized she’d never forgotten.

His grip on her waist tightened and he pulled her even closer to him.

The coolness of his body sent goose bumps in motion along her skin. Dominos falling in a row, lightning streaking across the sky—the sensation traveled with precision and speed. And when it dissipated, a delicious weakness in her knees and butterflies in her belly lingered for her enjoyment.

She moaned in his mouth.

“My God,” he whispered.


“That kiss was better than the first time.”

“They say it’s never as good as the first time.”

“They didn’t know us,” he said as desire spilled from his lips, “I’m here, in front of you. I want you.”

Noel Tierney thought she’d have enough time before the predicted storm to make it to her holiday retreat, but the snow hit sooner than expected. Caught unprepared on a treacherous pass, poor visibility and icy conditions lead to a crash. She lay immobile in her vehicle, stranded in a ditch in the most remote leg of her journey.

A faceless hero comes to her rescue and Noel has no choice but to wait out the blizzard in her rescuer’s unique cabin nestled in the woods. Everything about Grayson James peaks her curiosity—his valor, air of mystery and most of all, undeniable attractiveness.

For three days and nights, passions are unleashed and unexpected emotions are brought to life. When the storm breaks, Grayson vanishes into thin air, but not before revealing startling news that leaves her questioning her sanity.

Fast forward years later and Noel is in the southernmost part of the United States. She’d come seeking solace after her husband’s tragic death, but what finds her in Key West is more than she ever anticipated.

In the sultry summer, her unbridled winter’s ecstasy resurrects.

And so does the Vampire.

Maya DeLeina

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!
