“Dark Sentinels – Book One: Sable” 

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” 

When greedy land developers set their sights on Dark Sentinel land, Torin turns to attorney Stephanie Bates for help, but she’ll need his protection to stay alive long enough to save his land.

Real estate lawyer, Stephanie Bates, has risen to the top of her field through meticulous sacrifice and goal setting. She has no time for distractions – and that includes pets, messy relationships, and loose ends.

Torin DuMont is a forensic scientist who chose the profession to avoid dealing with people as much as possible. Raised by a stepfather who hated him, he’s been forced to live a life of solitude, fueled by anger and distrust. When wolves and shifters start turning up dead, Torin must battle an enemy bent on destroying those he was born to protect. His greatest challenge, however, is Attorney Bates and the surprising effect she has on his heart.

Cover Reveal: “Dark Sentinels Prequel”

3 Comments

Dark Sentinels Prequel cover3

Just finished the “Dark Sentinels” prequel in response to questions and requests, but since it is a prequel with events leading into “Dark Sentinels Book One: Sable,” it ends with a major cliffhanger. In other words, you’ll have to read book one to find out about the resolution. It introduces Syreena and tells her story with Cord. I’ll include this statement: Due to the unsettling cliffhanger at the end of this novella, it is suggested that you read “Dark Sentinels Book One: Sable” first. So…here’s the blurb.

“Dark Sentinels Prequel”

Sometimes a girl has to go the extra mile to capture the man she loves, especially when she’s a sentinel wolf shifter from Washington State with no possible mates for miles. Orphaned in childhood, Dr. Syreena Adler learned at an early age to depend on her twin brother, Sable, and herself, but phone conversations with a Georgia sentinel she’s never seen spark unexpected desire.

Southern red wolf sentinel Cord Velasquez has spent his life atoning for the death of his entire family. He wants a life with Syreena, but when she surprises him with an impromptu visit, the realization of his greatest fear seems inevitable.

Lilith has grown bored with her life.  She is ready for more.   The Master has promised her release from her succubus bonds is possible, except the price may be higher than she can afford.

#Sunday Sneak Peek: “Untameable Heat: Kaden’s Reprieve”

Leave a comment

SneekPeekSunday copy

Kaden’s powers were of no use here, ineffective until he reached the surface.

He climbed quickly but carefully, the suffocating scent of sulfur and decay causing him to labor for each breath. Falling thousands of miles was the last thing he needed. It would take him an entire day to wake up and heal from the injuries, leaving him even less time. Everything always came back to the curse, and he wondered why he still bothered year after year, century after century. He sighed, mumbling to himself in ancient Arabic. “Don’t think, dammit. Just climbUntameable Heat Kaden's Reprieve out of here and get on with it.”

Hot off the Press! “Dark Sentinels Book Two: Torin” by Dariel Raye is Live!

3 Comments

Hi, Everybody! My new release, “Dark Sentinels Book Two: Torin” just went live at Amazon and Barnes & Noble today! To make things even hotter, “Dark Sentinels Book One: Sable” is on sale for 99 cents until the end of the month! Here’s a bit about the series 🙂

Who Are The Dark Sentinels?Torin_final cover

 Buy Book Two

Buy Book One

They lived millions of years ago, fatalities of fear and prejudice. Now, answers to a prayer for survival, they are among us again. Other shifters were nearly extinct, murdered by the thousands at mostly human hands. Capable of shifting at will, without the aid of the moon’s phases, they were born to protect them. Bigger, stronger, faster, and longer living, with highly developed preternatural abilities, they are prized outsiders among their packs. Prized for their ability to protect, yet destined to live as outsiders because of the very differences necessary to prevent the pack’s extinction.

Born to stand at the crossroads between pack-members and their slaughterers, Sentinels quickly learn that they are on their own – a different species. Born human, only two are born to each pack, male and female alphas, brother and sister. Pack members deny them mating privileges within the pack based on fear. No female wants to bear a sentinel because their lives are constantly at risk. When danger comes to the pack, they are on the front line, considered expendable.

When they reach mating age, they leave the pack for a time to find a mate – another sentinel. What happens when a sentinel develops feelings for a human? What happens when malevolent scientists learn how to strengthen humans by using sentinel blood?  As you can imagine, with their feral nature barely beneath the surface, their wolf barely sheathed, dark sentinel passions run high. Touch, affection, and loyalty are necessary for their survival, and they are willing to go to extraordinary measures, risk everything, and break every rule for love.

“Torin” Excerpt

Torin never understood his effect on humans. He wasn’t even sporting his usual scowl, but from the moment he’d walked in, the tension had been palpable.

“I have an appointment with attorney Bates.”

“Name, please?”

“Torin DuMont.”

“I am so sorry, M-Mr. DuMont, but I sent you a message yesterday morning.”

Torin wondered briefly if she realized she leaned away from him as her heart rate increased yet again. “A message?”

“Um, yes. I was asked to cancel your appointment because Ms. Bates has some urgent business to attend to this morning. I-I…well, I requested that you call to, um…reschedule.”

While Torin stared at her and said nothing else, she fumbled for a calendar.

She cleared her throat of the lump he’d caused and stuttered, “Um, Mr. DuMont, she can see you on—”

Torin glanced at the calendar and noticed she was looking at dates for next month. He interrupted, unable to restrain the growl in his voice. “I didn’t get any message, and I left work early to come here today. I’ll wait.”

Torin turned away before she could say anything, leaving her mouth slightly open when he moved to the opposite wall. He faced her, crossing his arms over his chest.

That bastard stepfather of mine! Torin was certain the asshole had received and erased the message telling him to reschedule.

Torin hated lawyers and couldn’t believe he’d allowed his childish desire for his stepfather’s approval to waste his time again. I shouldn’t even be here trying to help people who don’t give a damn about me. 

He watched the receptionist pick up the phone and overheard every word she whispered into the receiver following a distinct buzz from the adjoining office. “…Yes, he’s here. Obviously from the Wild Lands. Yes, I already told him…”

A sigh from the other end triggered a tingling sensation in his lower abdomen. Her voice was soft, almost musical. He blinked, then closed his eyes to savor the sound. Surprisingly, it calmed him.

“…Cindy, I can’t possibly see anyone else today. Just resched…”

Cindy, apparently the name of the jumpy little receptionist, stood and left her desk, heading in the direction of the lawyer’s office.

Torin didn’t have to leave his spot against the wall to overhear Cindy and the unavailable Ms. Bates, despite the fact that they were intentionally speaking softly.

“…I tried to reschedule, but he won’t…and he won’t leave either! Steph, you haven’t seen him. He’s huge, and he walked in looking pissed—not a good combination. I started to call for James to escort him out of the office, but I like James, so…”

Both women shared a laugh. “No, no need for all that. You offered him another appointment. If he chooses to wait, let him wait. I’ll deal with him if he doesn’t get tired and leave.” She laughed again. “I keep saying I need a peephole in this door. You’ve piqued my curiosity now. Wish I could work him in. I’m eager to meet one of these Wild Landers I keep hearing about but never seem to run into any.”

“For the most part, they pretty much keep to themselves, but believe me, you’ll know when you see one.” Cindy sighed. “Guess I’ll go back out here and try to work while he’s glaring at me. I doubt he’s going anywhere, Steph. He seems like the stubborn type.”

“Don’t worry, Cindy. If he’s still there when it’s time for you to leave, I’ll speak to him myself and try to reschedule. In the meantime, just ignore him. Maybe he’ll take the hint and leave.”

* * *

Torin stepped outside several times to stretch his long legs, finding fewer clients waiting for Ms. Bates on each return. He’d overheard everything the lawyer and her receptionist said, but it wasn’t what she had said that bothered him; it was the timbre of her voice itself—soft, smooth, and lilting—that elicited an immediate response. Puzzled by his own involuntary reaction, he wanted to hear more of it, like a cobra drawn helplessly and nonsensically to an oboe.

He sensed the sun had gone down before he stepped over to the small window and looked out. Even in the complete darkness, his eyes did not fail him, and he saw the grounds as clearly as if daylight greeted him. Finally, one man remained in the waiting room with him, but it was well after six p.m.

He picked up the pleasant scent of mint, lemongrass, and lilies and turned just in time to see shapely legs, a voluptuous body full of promise. The warm, mocha-colored face wasn’t bad either. Clearly, it was the owner of the musical voice. His wolf bristled beneath his skin, forcing an internal battle just to remain civilized. Confusion increased his frustration. He’d never reacted to a female this way before, and certainly not a human.
