Feature Friday: Pacific Passion

This week we are featuring the Pacific Passion Box Set, which includes all three novellas in the series: STORMCHILD, STORMY SEDUCTION, and SILENT STORM. 

Pacific Passion Boxed Set by Vivian Arend

 

Somewhere between the ocean depths and the mountaintops, there’s a love strong enough to call them both home.

Stormchild: Traveling doctor and shaman Matthew Jentry has his hands full curing for his water-shifter clan. There’s something far too enticing, though, about mysterious Laurin Marshall. Laurin thought leaving her next teaching assignment would keep her identity as an air shifter a secret. Until she finds Matt is on the same boat, and their sexual fireworks ignite…

Stormy Seduction: Before Laurin and Matt can begin to explore their mystical bond, the People of the Air challenge her right to choose a water shifter as her mate. Fending off Laurin’s would-be suitors is easy for Matt. But what will happen when she encounters his playful, lusty Otter clan? Especially since they’ll be the main attraction at the solstice fertility ritual.

Silent Storm: Despite their deepening emotional connection, Laurin still wonders how she and Matt can find permanent common ground. Matt waits patiently for Laurin. He has no desire to change her sky-borne nature. Until a giant golden eagle touches down on the Stormchild and tips the delicate balance of more than just the boat.

Friday Flashback - Stormchild

Over on Facebook, we started a new feature called Friday Flashback. It’s a chance to revisit some of Vivian’s earlier books and get new tidbits about the stories. Today, we are looking back on Stormchild.

Stormchild 222

 

Heroine: Laurin – Air shifter hiding from her people within the Sea shifter people. Destined to be part of an ancient mystical prophecy.

Hero: Matt – Sea shifter shaman, can shift into any sea creature. Knows his connection with Laurin will lead to incredible things

Notable tidbit about story: This is another paranormal with atypical shifters. For me the challenge was to write three books with the same hero and heroine — something that I had never done before. This was in the days before serials became popular again, and the three books that make up Pacific Passion trilogy are not really serials. They are short stories, independent with a definite HFN, working toward a HEA. but I really enjoyed getting to take Matt and Laurin from discovering they were “meant to be together” to truly falling in love.

If you haven’t read Stormchild, watch out–there should be a heat warning on these three! If you’ve read it, you’ll know what I mean!!

Here is one of Viv’s favorite quotes from the book:

Oh, and I need to know your preferred format, and if you need a copy of Stormchild as well, because it would be good to see the whole picture. WARNING! These are short stories, but very hot. If that’s not your taste, you should probably skip them.

Thanks!

Snippet Saturday- Breaking up is hard to do

I have bad 70’s songs racing through my brain right now, so let’s hop straight to the snippet. The theme? Breaking up- saying goodbye. Get lost, you jerk, etc. Or then…there’s the slightly sneakier version. (Psst- it doesn’t work…)

From Stormchild.

It was somehow distasteful and very trite. Yet when she woke before Matt, her first thought was to find a way to sneak out of his grasp and get to the harbor as quickly and quietly as possible.

Still, she stared at his face for a full minute, memorizing the lines, the firm bone structure. Whatever else had happened last night, she didn’t regret her actions. Or at least she wouldn’t if she made it out of his tent without disturbing him. She didn’t need any early-morning complications. Rolling cautiously, Laurin slipped from under his muscular arm and slid off the bed. Her dress lay across the back of the chair, and she inched it over her head in an instant.

Then she was out the tent flap, returning to her own place, hoping to avoid any of the early-rising locals on their way fishing. She didn’t need a lengthy tête-à-tête with anyone about why she still wore last night’s clothing.

The crisp morning breeze filled her nostrils like a refreshing spring rain. It was always difficult to say goodbye to a community, but heading to a new settlement excited her as well. Laurin ducked into her own tent to change into travel gear and grab her day bag. Someone had already picked up her main suitcase and she quickly prepared for the coming trip. She wondered briefly who Mama T had conned into giving her a ride to her next teaching assignment. Most of the time she ended up on slow-moving barges or supply vessels. Occasionally a speedboat, but that convenience was far more rare. All she knew was that by nine a.m. she had to get to the harbor.

She spent her spare time on a rocky outcrop overlooking the settlement, staring at the ocean and wondering why the taste of Matt lingered in her mouth.

Snippet Saturday-Take me away

It’s time for a vacation. A getaway from it all. An exotic location–and here’s where I have troubles, because what I think is exotic isn’t to many others. Ah well. Here’s a snippet for you from Stormchild- book 1 in the Pacific Passion series

These elements have no desire to be tamed…

As the new traveling doctor for the Pacific Inside Passage settlements, Matthew Jentry balances dual roles for his water-shifter people—caring for their health as a human-trained physician, and for their spiritual needs as a shaman.

Distractions of the female kind are not on his agenda, but his magical bloodline makes him a target for every marriage-minded woman within range. There’s something about the mysterious Laurin Marshall, though, that he finds far too enticing. It’s just as well that it’s time for him to move on.

Laurin thought she had perfected her guise as a mild-mannered teacher, but the sexual fireworks she and Matt touch off are threatening to blow her cover out of the water. Luckily it’s time for her to catch the boat to her next assignment.

When she discovers she’ll be sailing with Matt, she realizes there’s only one thing more dangerous than their unforgettable one-night stand—being trapped with him on a boat that gives “riding out the storm” a whole new meaning…

Warning: Contains strong sexual currents and powerful waves of desire that break down inhibitions. Recommended only for those able to navigate through extremely steamy situations, on land and at sea.

Laurin skimmed the water’s surface where she’d last seen the dolphin rise. She headed for the nearby shore, back-winging inches above the sand before resuming her human form. The wind lessoned here in the lee of the hillside, but the night air and the rain chilled her naked skin. She wrapped her arms around her torso to fight the cold.

Staring over the ocean, she wondered how Matt would respond to her being an air shifter. The sound of his cry as she’d leapt into the air reverberated in her head—he hadn’t wanted her to go. The temptation to stay wrapped in his arms puzzled her, almost as much as the need she felt to physically join with him.

She’d never needed someone this desperately before in her life. Her whole body itched to have him back. She wanted to hear his gentle laugh, and to feel again the way he stroked his knuckles over her skin. Oh damn, what was the matter with her? Less than twenty-four hours had passed and she ached to be in his presence.

Her rain-soaked hair hung in tangled ropes over her face, water pouring in rivulets down her back. A deep sense of peace warmed her heart as his head broke the surface of the water.

Long firm strides brought him quickly to her side. His naked skin glowed in the pale moonlight that snuck through a short break in the clouds. Around them the storm raged in gusts, whipping her hair around her head. She lifted her hands to clutch it back and he took advantage of the moment to step closer, pressing their bodies together.

“Air shifter.”

She smiled into his twinkling eyes. “Shaman.”

A shiver traced her skin. He wrapped himself around her, their lips meeting, tongues tangling. Heat built between them, driving the night away. Their skin, slick with the rain and the ocean’s salt water, slid together easily as he lifted her into his embrace. She wrapped her legs around his waist, her arms over his shoulders, mouths never separating.

Need swept through her, her breasts tingling where they pressed tightly against his firm chest. She linked her fingers into his hair and tugged until he released her lips. They both sucked in air.

“Damn it, I am so paddling your ass for not telling me sooner,” he growled.

Laurin’s heart skipped a beat at the erotic pictures that flashed through her mind. A tingling sensation settled heavily between her legs and she ground her crotch on his rock-hard abdomen. Matt groaned and dropped his head on her shoulder for a second. He took a deep breath then spoke, barely audible above the crash of the waves on the shore. “You’ve got to stop. I don’t know how or why, but for the last five hours I’ve fucking seen everything you imagine doing sexually with me.”

The heat pulsing in her veins egged her on. “I’d think you’d love it.”

He broke into a laugh and cradled her against his body. Quick steps carried them toward the tree line. “Hell yeah, but it’s making this whole situation even harder to figure out. Come on. Let’s find shelter.”
