Upcoming Release: Snowbound: Saved by a Vampire

Jan 29, 2008 Filed under: Uncategorized


In the next few weeks, Changeling Press with release the Snowbounds, a new series of hot flashes (short stories). I’ve written one about a woman stranded in the snow and a to-die-for vampire. Here’s a little taste:

Sandra huddled in the corner of the abandoned cabin, wrapping the moth eaten blankets even tighter around herself. Why the fuck hadn’t she believed her brother when he insisted it was going to snow? She knew how quickly a blizzard could come up around here, but she’d ignored his warnings.

Now she was lost and her only shelter was a rickety cabin that barely kept out the wind. Unless a miracle occurred, she wouldn’t live long enough for him to say “I told you so.”

Snow swirled through the chinks in the wall, forming a white blanket on the floor. Sandra’s eyes started to drift closed. She shook herself awake. If she went to sleep now, she would never wake up. She needed to get up, move around, stave off hypothermia as best she could.

As she forced her nearly frozen limbs to move, she heard something outside the door. Please God let it be a rescue party.

The door swung open. The flickering light of her flashlight allowed her to see the outline of a tall man. Her heart hammered.

He stepped further into the light, and her breath caught. Long, mocha-colored hair, flowed across his shoulder and down to the middle of his back. His eyes were deep brown, almost black, his skin nearly as pale as the snow that covered his tall black boots. His tight pants showed off powerful thighs and a trim waist. Suddenly she felt warmer than she had since the storm began.

He smiled, a wicked upturn of his lips. Then she saw them, Fangs.

I’ll let you know as soon as Snowbound: Saved By A Vampire is available!

When Work Affects Yours Mind

Jan 29, 2008 Filed under: Uncategorized

I’m a list maker and usually I have a list when I’m at the grocery store but I only needed five things the other morning so I thought I could just remember them all. I found myself rushing around the store reciting the list in my head: ziti, ricotta, mozarella, tylenol, vibrator batteries. After saying this in my head about 10 times it struck me that other people would likely have just thought AAA batteries and that it was a good thing I wasn’t muttering the list out loud as I’ve been known to do 🙂

An Afternoon for Cake

Jan 28, 2008 Filed under: Uncategorized

The last few weekends have been cold and dreary and our family has spent far too much time indoors trying to think of something exciting to do. This week I decided to be proactive and I invited some friends and their families over for afternoon cake and coffee. I have a friend who grew up in Bavaria and when he shared with me that it is traditional there to have cake and coffee every afternoon, I fell in love with that tradition. I mean what is not to like about a daily piece of cake. And with several grownups and a bevy of little girls in our house, I was able to bake a cake and resist the temptation to eat it all ourselves. So we had a delightful if chaotic afternoon with plenty of kids, friends, and caffeine.

I am not a risk taker by nature but for some reason I always end up trying new recipes when I invite people over. And yesterday’s cake was no exception. Fortunately it turned out wonderfully, moist and delicious with a rich chocolatey icing that melted in your mouth. I wish I’d taken a picture but we cut into it too quickly. Here are the recipes I used:

Excerpt: Wolf Caller 3: Yearning

Nov 20, 2007 Filed under: Uncategorized

The third installment in my Wolf Caller trilogy will be released laster this week. Here’s a little taste….

Wolf Caller 3: Yearning by Silvia Violet

“Damn it! I can’t feel a thing.”

Derek growled and pulled back. “You’re not trying hard enough.”

“The hell I’m not. I want to find Two as badly as you do.”

“Then concentrate.”

Serena’s head was ready to explode with frustration. She rose from the pillows where they’d knelt to attempt the magical work. She had to get away from Derek before she said something she’d regret. As walked away, Luke gave her a sympathetic smile and Isabel patted her arm.

“Pack leader?” Isabel used her most formal address, the best choice considering Derek’s current mood. “We need to take a break.”

“We don’t have time to take a fucking break,” Derek snarled.

Isabel sighed. “Continuing when we’re tired is not productive. We would do better to rest and try again this afternoon.”

“Fine.” Derek rose and walked to the window. He stared out at the overcast morning. Silence was as close as he would come to admitting that Isabel was right.

“I will take my leave then,” Isabel said. She smiled at Serena.

“I’m sorry,” Serena mouthed.

“It’s not your fault.” Serena read the words from Isabel’s lips.

The work she and Isabel had done to open the solar box they recently recovered from enemy hands had strengthened Isabel’s magical abilities though the two women had not gained the ease of mental communication Serena shared with Luke and Derek.

Serena and Derek had previously thought such a power boost could only come through mutual orgasm. But the physical contact she and Isabel had shared as magic had rushed through them had been enough. A temporary mind link had opened between them, and Serena’s magic had touched Isabel the same way it had Luke and Derek, giving Isabel greater physical strength and magical ability.

Serena sat on the sofa, drawing up her knees and resting her head on them. The intense magical work she and the wolves had attempted had given her a raging headache and made her achingly tired.

Since breakfast, Isabel had been coaching Serena, Derek, and Luke on using their combined magical strength to reach out and sense Agent Two, the Toulousian spy who’d discovered the Albionians ability to harness the power of the sun. Theoretically, if Luke and Derek could boost her innate abilities, Serena could focus on a particular person and pull certain thoughts from his or her mind. From Isabel’s understanding of the technique, the thoughts would come as impressions, images, or feelings rather than clear words. She would not gain the ability of general mind reading. Rather, if she focused on a particular question, she might be able to draw the answer from the person’s mind, like a forced mental interrogation.

Serena and her lovers had made three unsuccessful attempts to forge a link with Two. On the second try, Serena felt a strange warmth for a moment as if she were about to make contact, but the sensation faded as quickly as it had come and was never more than a flicker. When they tried again, she felt nothing at all.

She understood Derek’s frustration. If she could make contact with Two they could discover where he was and what his next move would be. They had to prevent Two from obtaining another of the secret solar boxes. Albion could not afford for its enemies to discover how to use this new power source.

Currently only the Prime Minister and members of a secret branch of the Office of Clandestine Affairs knew about the solar boxes. They were operated by werewolf magic, but Derek feared that if Two learned the box’s secrets he could find a witch or a wizard who could unlock it’s magical secrets.

Serena found the strength to raise her head when she heard Luke and Derek arguing in harsh whispers. Suddenly, Derek shoved Luke against the wall between the room’s two windows. The pack leader closed his hand around his lover’s neck. “Never question my orders again,” he growled.

Serena’s heart pounded, and she leapt to her feet. She caught Luke’s gaze. He shook his head nearly imperceptibly, but she ignored his warning. “Let him go.”

Derek snarled and turned to face her, keeping his hand on Luke throat. “I am pack leader here. I think the two of you need a lesson in obedience.”

Great Review for Station Leave

Sep 29, 2007 Filed under: Uncategorized

Nicole Harvey at PNR reivewed Station Leave and her kind words are making me dance and it’s 6 am on a Saturday for me so you know it must be good. Here’s what she had to say:

“Nick is one of those men that is a strong, take charge man that draws me and I am sure many other woman that read this book. It was just pure heat between the two that kept me flying until the last word. The day I was lucky enough to read Silvia Violet’s books was the best day that is for sure. She is so gifted with words, the way her stories just get better and better.”
