Today I am tickled to host Michaela Rhua, who is celebrating the release of her novel Moon Dance. Welcome, Michaela!
Thank you for having me on your blog.
How does it work for you? Are you the instant attraction type or do you need to take your time? My girls Raya and Amari both have their reasons for wanting to take it slow and easy but the thing with attraction is that when it hits – it hits! So what do you do? Be sensible and step back or jump in with both feet? The girls decide to jump in and enjoy the moment. The only problem is a discovery related to Raya’s past put’s their fledgling relationship at risk. What happens next? Well they…. Not going to tell you! But I will leave you with a teaser.
A quick pick up and a night of sex was just what Raya was looking for. Only meeting Amari set her insides on fire and she had to have more of this Indian beauty. Witches and shifters aren’t meant to bond only Raya and Amari can’t ignore the chemistry flowing between them. Trouble strikes the lovers when a past trauma hits Raya and Amari’s mother could be to blame. Finally Raya has a chance to get even with the old witch, who destroyed her life. When that revenge reveals that Raya’s past holds secrets she wasn’t aware of, it throws into question everything she believes in. Can the lovers unite to help Raya find her true self or is it all too late?
Energy swam around them as they swayed to the music. Amari was uncertain what the track was. Some rock with a heavy baseline. Why could her brain not work out what it was? She knew a lot about music: it was her refuge when times were hard, which seemed to be constantly the case at the moment. Making friends was easy; however keeping them was another thing. Once people got close and they realized how strange she was they often walked away, which was why tonight had been odd. These two seemed to want to get to know her. Early days yet. Amari closed her eyes, letting her body drift to the music. A spark of energy hit her and her eyes shot open. Raya was talking to her again, with her hand on her shoulder. The energy sparked again around them both. Amari was not certain what was going on. The power was not balanced; there was something else in it.
“This is a track by a band called China Dragon. I gave Lonnie their EP to broaden her collection. Do you like it?” Raya asked.
All Amari could do was turn her head and look at the hand Raya had on her shoulder. That’s where the energy spark was emanating from Raya’s touch. As though she sensed Amari was not comfortable, Raya let her hand slide away.
“Yeah, I like it,” was all Amari could think to say. Raya looked down at her, holding her gaze. Raya’s green eyes looked confused. Amari could sense her feelings; they floated to her through the air between them. What was happening? Amari knew she was sensitive to other people’s thoughts or feelings, especially if they were close to her or touching although this had never happened with total strangers. Usually this bond was with family members or close friends who were open to the Craft so what was happening here was not making sense to her.
Michaela Rhua always dreamed of writing but this never happened until she met the lovely group of ladies known as UCW. Their passion for writing and encouragement inspired her to see if she could do it too. Now she is multi published and loves writing!
She has teenage children who also keep her busy. However, it is whilst travelling into work that she has time to create her characters and imagine other places in which they exist as her world skims by the window. Conversations overheard often lead to the birth of new ideas that she scribbles down in her trusty notebook.
