A Happy Book Birthday goes out to Adrian, Mystic Zodiac Book 8!!!
Adrian folds in my love of tattoos and being down in Georgetown in the Washington D.C. area. There are some fantastic shops and some beautiful sites there.?I had a lot of fun researching homes and mapping out my favorite places. It helped that I live in the general vicinity and have spent a bit of time walking around Georgetown.
Happy Book Birthday!!!!
Its hard to believe I closed out the Mystic Zodiac series two years ago today. It was a hard fought battle on my part to get to this point. A book a month was a trial and while I didn’t quite manage it, I was beyond happy to get to Chloe and Eros. ?So let’s wish them a Happy Book Birthday!!
Well, the book COLBY: SEPTEMBER. One this day in 2015 (not too long ago really) Colby shared his love story with the public. He has a fiery witch for a mate with magical, magical hands. (She’s a masseuse).
When I first plotted out the Mystic Zodiac series, Colby was one of the stories?I wasn’t too sure about. With the others, except for Amber and maybe Adrian, I knew exactly who their mate was and what their story would be. Colby was a bit tight lipped and it was decided that I would head back to Satyr, the club from book 4, for Colby’s journey.
It was great heading back to Satyr and delving more into the place. The magic and mystique that surrounded it ended up being the perfect setting. Colby opened up about what he liked and didn’t like. He confessed his love of curvy witches who could keep him on his toes. He also showed he was a romantic at heart.
So let’s give a big ole HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Colby and his lady-love, Ella.
Colby Noble is a Djinn; a genie in layman?s terms. No, not the living in a lamp and granting three wishes kind. That?s partly myth. There?s more to a Djinn than granting wishes?and there?s more to him than?being?a genie. He?s the head bartender and co-manager of the bar at Club Satyr. There?s nothing major going on in his life, work is good and he?s happily single. All of that changes one night when he spies a sexy, curvy witch breathing?fire?literally. Witches are his?weakness. The kind of women he can?t resist. Trust him, he?s tried. It doesn?t work out well.
Ella Burke, the curvy witch in question, is?celebrating a friend?s?promotion with a night out at Club Satyr.?THE?place for all things Mystics, including the ability to get a little drunk and wild. Something she?s definitely up for?fun after a long week of work. It?s time for her to relax, instead of being the one relaxing others as a masseuse. When she and her friends are approached by reputed heartbreaker and so-freaking-hot-she-could-die bartender Colby, she?s intrigued and giddy?but that could have been the alcohol.
Forces outside their control push Colby and Ella together after?she?accidentally loses his number and?he?doesn?t know how to find her. Strange and mysterious things that have Ella getting her dream job and Colby running back into his dream woman. Maybe this time they?ll get their act together and find true love. That is, if another witch with eyes only for Colby doesn?t get in their way.

Chloe & Eros, the bonus story in the Mystic Zodiac series, is here!!! It was a long time coming after I finished up the series. A REALLY long time coming. In fact, I wasn’t sure how the story would even come about when I started the series. Was I going to sum it all up at the end of book 12? Were they going to get their own story? If I did that, how long was it going to be? So many questions., absolutely no answers. At least none until I finally sat down to concentrate on what I wanted to do.
What I ended up with was compiling all of the prologues and epilogues into one document and then writing about Chloe & Eros and how they wanted to resolve the bet.
You can grab Chloe & Eros’s book for $2.99 and if you haven’t gotten the entire Mystic Zodiac Series yet you should definitely grab it now. My original plan was to raise the price of each box set from $2.99 to $9.99 (the regular price) as each box set released but something came up and I’m keeping them all at $2.99 until August 29th!
What was meant as a scathing remark has turned into a twelve-month long bet between Chloe (Clotho, the Fate of Birth) and Eros (the God of love and desire.)
Chloe and Eros are revered Gods on Olympus. Their station in the otherworldly life is that above the mere mortals and Mystics of the world they hold power over. What they aren?t above, though, is lashing out in a jealous rage and coming up with the biggest wager the realm has seen in some time.
Chloe must perform Eros?s job of matching one Mystic a month with their fated soulmate. If she wins, she gets Eros for an entire month, with no interruptions, to do with as she pleases. If she loses, Eros gets one favor, no questions asked. What Chloe doesn?t know is that Eros wants her to win the bet just as much as she does.
*Includes the Prologues and Epilogues from all 12 books in the Mystic Zodiac series
Eros paced his sitting room. The carpet was worn down into an easily seen path. Unease he could no longer suppress filled his chest with each step. He had the faint feeling there would be no end to it anytime soon. Not until one decidedly delicious Fate blessed him with her presence.
It had been a couple weeks since Chloe had won the bet between them, and he?d yet to hear a word from the blasted woman. He, of course, assumed she would be the one to get hold of him to cash in on the terms of the bet the day after it had become official that she?d won. Yet there was nary a word from her since that night in the hospital.
He trod over the path again, stopping in front of the piece of art he?d seen her standing in front of the first time she?d come to his home. It was as picturesque as before.
The landscape in which they lived and was represented, was as lively and beautiful as ever. The lush field of grass appeared alive with a rustling of a breeze. The man who lay entwined with the breathtaking woman had a glow of pure happiness about him. But no longer was his golden head tossed back in ecstasy. The woman was no longer arched beneath him, but her hands were now resting on his chest. They appeared sated and drunk on the endorphins that came from long bouts of euphoric sex.
He had to spin away, the sight pulling at something in his chest. There was an ache at the thought of not knowing how intimacy would feel with Chloe. He?d craved it for months on end; but, stubbornly, he would not be the one to cave. Gods and the like came to him, not the other way around.
