I couldn't think of a better birthday present than to share Julian and Serena with the world. I'm so insanely excited to say I share a birthday with a book I wrote! It was a little more than a year ago that I was putting on the finishing touches to my query letter and getting ready to sent Torn Between Two Worlds out into the world. I can't even express how amazing it is to be releasing the second in the series today! So enough about me, time to share about the book!
Julian Michelson is a firefighter in a small town in Alabama. He's been struggling for years to prove to himself that Word Speakers, people who can pull characters from books, exist. Why? Because he's supposed to be one and he's failed every step of the way and a war is supposedly coming.
Serena, a princess in fictional medieval Britain, is the epitome of a good girl. She lives to appease her father and her country. That is until she felt a strange voice in her head before waking up and seeing a handsome man through the flames of a fire in a strange world. Now she's stuck in his world and is none to happy with him despite her fascination with the new world and her growing attraction for him.
Julian must make amends to Serena, his first and only Guardian, because if she leaves he can kiss his gift goodbye. A lust they can't deny spikes between them as Word Speaker and Guardian and they must decide – are they in the fight together, or do they go their separate ways?

She was in his arms in an instant as he scooped her out of the seat. She could feel his muscles perfectly under the wetness of his shirt and she wanted to explore him. He opened the lock to his home quickly and had gently laid her down on the couch. Tugging his shirt over his head he flipped a switch on the wall and a fire flared to live in his hearth. She should have asked how it happened but her mouth was dry as she took in his muscular form.
The warmth from the fire licked out and touched her wet skin. The look in his eyes as he walked closer to her made her hotter than any fire. His eyes were darker than normal and water dripped off his face and ran down the muscles on his chest. She didn't think, she just leaned up and let her tongue slide over his hardened body and catch the trail of water.
“Serena.” Her name was barely choked out and he lowered his face to hers, stopping a hair's inch from her mouth. She cried out in frustration and stood on her tiptoes to reach him but he pulled back slightly. “Serena, tell me to stop because if you don't right now there will be no going back. Seeing you there, wet and ready from the rain and touching me like that. No man, not even a knight would be able to stop.”
Serena answered him by sliding her hands down his chest and placing soft kisses on his pecs. “Make love to me Julian.”
