Leave a comment

Join me on “The Alerians – Dark Progeny: Jordan’s Wings” virtual book tour and meet my new hero, Canaan! He’s a new breed – a vamp-like progeny of angels. Twelve wonderful author friends will be hosting me with excerpts, articles, interviews, and giveaways of “Dark Sentinels Book One: Sable” along the tour. Kickoff is tomorrow, with author Christina McKnight. To see the complete tour schedule, click here. Here’s a bit about “Dark Sentinels” to whet your appetite…

Dark Sentinels – Book One: Sable by Dariel Raye

Sable, a sentinel wolf shifter, is captured and locked in his wolf form until Akila, a veterinarian, tries to tame him and unleashes a 6’5″ baby blue-eyed surprise.

Dr. Akila Marshall is a veterinarian with a calling – save as many stray animals as possible. The only child of wealthy, yet distant parents, she’s convinced that love is not for her. Until…

Sable’s search for his twin sister leads him to Akila. Born into a rare species of wolf shifters whose main purpose is protecting others, he has always been forced to fend for himself, but Akila’s loving, protective nature draws him – and not a moment too soon. Together, they must learn to trust each other enough to overcome a new, deadly enemy.

“Dark Sentinels Book Two: Torin”  available December 2012

Genesis: Who are “The Alerians – Dark Progeny?”

4 Comments

 

“The Nephilim were on the Earth in those days

 – and also afterward – when the Sons of God went to

the daughters of men and had children by them.

They were the heroes of old, men of renown.” NIV Gen. 6:4

 Biblical scholars espouse a number of opinions about the literal and theological meaning of this verse. Some believe “sons of God” were those men who were believers, attempting to live according to The One God’s laws. Continuing with this interpretation, the “daughters of men” were unbelievers who just happened to be female and sired the children of these otherwise “Godly” men. As a paranormal romance writer, however, I find the other group of scholars’ beliefs much more interesting.

According to some, the Nephilim were the offspring of angels, able to shift their naturally genderless form, and sire offspring with human women. As this coupling was forbidden, the offspring were cursed, evil, and eventually banished from the earth. In fact, some believe they were the main catalyst for The Great Deluge. They brought so much evil into the world that the great flood occurred to destroy them and cleanse the earth (dark progeny).

Imagine angelic beings with knowledge and abilities far beyond human understanding siring children with human women. What would these children be like? “The Alerians – Dark Progeny.” Survivors – Descendants of the original Nephilim.  Their home is a dimension set apart from heaven called Aleria. There, they live with the curse of their ancestors. As repentance for their forefathers’ sins, they have lived for centuries, engaged in the war against unrepentant fallen angels.

Human interaction is forbidden, and they face eventual extinction. Only one female is born for every 500 males. These females are treated like royalty, mating with the highest ranking males. The majority of males live as warriors and “Seekers,” no hope of ever feeling the touch of a woman. But things are about to change…

New Release! “Alerians – Dark Progeny: Jordan’s Wings” by Dariel Raye

8 Comments

Hi, Everybody! I’m mega-excited about my newest release! “The Alerians – Dark Progeny” are the descendants of the Biblical Nephilim. These super alphas look like angels, but they are actually a cursed race headed for extinction. Canaan’s story is first in this exciting series. He requires some getting used to, but I hope you’ll love him 🙂 Read the blurb below…

Jordan Taylor is a feisty, take charge, Rubinesque beauty with a tough façade, but after a string of lackluster relationships, her dream of a man who truly loves and appreciates her strength seems impossible…Until she meets Canaan, the man her fiancé claims is his best friend! Instinctively, she knows her neat, if lackluster life is about to change.

Born more than 200 years ago, Canaan looks like an angel but he’s far from it. In his world, the ratio of men to women is 500 to 1, and although he’s a superior being, he’s willing to break the most sacred law of his brothers, even drink human blood, to have one meant for him alone.When he meets Jordan, he knows she’s the one he’s been searching for.  To claim her, Canaan will have to betray his friend, humble himself enough to win her love, and risk his very life.

Dariel Raye’s Upcoming Friday Guest: Author Wenona Hulsey

1 Comment

How about I tell you a bit about me first, the person behind the pen? I’m Wenona Hulsey, mother of two and blue collar worker by day.  But at night I turn into Wenona Hulsey, master of words and worlds.  I’ve always written for as long as I can remember. I kept journals off and on from the age of nine but I really got into writing about a year and a half ago. I was searching for a creative outlet at a time in my life when I felt like I was living in a rut.  I sing terrible, I dance like I’m having seizures and my art looks like stick figures so I turned to what came easiest to me —writing.  I started working on my first novel, Burden of Blood, and it moved along remarkably fast.  I guess that could be contributed to my recent binge reading of all books labeled paranormal romances but I had an idea of what I wanted and I put it to paper.

As I was nearing the end of my writing frenzy on Burden of Blood a fascinating novelette idea popped into my head and Blood Awakening was born.  It works as a back story to two of the main characters in Burden of Blood, giving you more detail and insight into who Nicole Keenan and her best friend Kat were before their world was turned on its head.  I would consider Blood Awakening more of a thriller, suspense with a dash of paranormal and comedy thrown in.  But Burden of Blood is full on Paranormal Romance with hot warriors and gothic fairies in leading roles.

Now that I’ve sent Blood Awakening, Burden of Blood and the final book in the series, Blood of Fire, out into the world, I’m working on the 3rd draft of my still untitled mystery thriller and I’ve started another project that will fall into the young adult genre.

I hope you all will give my books a read and I’m always glad to connect with readers in the internet world so be sure to reach out to me on me website, Facebook page, or Twitter.  Thanks so much for letting me join you today!

Christina McKnight

 Christina McKnight is a book lover turned writer. From a young age, her mother encouraged her to tell her own stories. She’s been writing ever since.

In college, Christina took many courses to help develop and enhance her writing skills. She completed a seventy-page dissertation on the need for community policing in American society. Now, she focuses on Historical Romance, Urban Fantasy, and Paranormal Romance.

Christina lives in Northern California with her husband, daughter, two boxers, two cats, and a Beta fish named Marmaduke.  If she’s not behind a computer screen or book, she’s busy leading her daughter’s Girl Scout troop. She is very active in several writing groups and a local book group.

Christina’s Writing Journey:
My early childhood was rife with educational setbacks. I was finally able to master reading by learning braille in the 5th grade, from their I’ve never stopped growing as a student. As a young adult I enjoyed reading RL Stine, Little House on the Prairie, and Anne of Green Gables. From their I moved on to Historical Romance, often discussing books with my mom. She encouraged me for years to tell MY stories. And so started my passion for writing. I spent many years learning the craft and networking with other writers before getting serious about my own dreams for publishing my novels. A little over a year ago I set out to polish Only In Her Dreams, The Oneiroi Book 1 an Urban Fantasy novel. I’m proud to announce that as of September 1, 2012 I achieved my dream of being a published author.
Please join us tomorrow at my blogger site for an excerpt of  Christina’s new release, “Only In Her Dreams, The Oneiroi, Bk. One.”
