Seven Eight, Justice is Karma’s Perfect Mate #KIBJ #NSFW

Chapter 4 Karma meme

Hello my friends! I hope you have enjoyed your Easter celebration. I realize not everyone celebrates this religious holiday, but for me it’s the start of Spring and New Beginnings. With that in mind, I have the next chapter from Karma In Blue Jeans to share with you. For those of you who haven’t read the first three chapters, click on the links below to catch up. Of course, you don’t have to do that right away. You can read Chapter 4 first and then go back to the beginning to catch up. It’s all good!

Chapter 2

Chapter 3

Karma in Blue Jeans Cover first oneI do have one more surprise for everyone. I finally decided on a cover for KIBJ. I had debated about using the beautiful model I’ve chosen to represent her in these posts or go with something a little less obvious. Facebook loves to block images of covers that showcase too much skin. That of course is all subjective as they have no problem allowing videos with full on sex acts to be posted. So to get around all of that, I decided not to put Karma’s face on the cover. First of all, in the book readers find out she can change up her look depending on her mood. Last week she was granted her wish to live among the humans…in human form. She’s a wild child so I had to choose a photo that would represent that. What do you think?

So far we’ve learned Karma has been begging The Three for a chance to learn more about the mortals. With Lucius preparing to give up his immortality for his love of a Wiccan Priestess, Karma has to fill his shoes. Before she steps into her new role as part of The Three, she is allowed to experience life as a human. With her on this journey will be her lover the demigod, Justice. In this chapter we meet the sexy half human. I won’t say anymore.

Enjoy!

Chapter 4

 

 

Justice stood next to Marissa after her father entered Evangeline’s room alone. “I’m sorry you have to go through this.”

She waved him off, shrugged and appeared utterly defeated. “It’s not your fault, Doc. She did this to herself. She got caught up in all the hype of becoming a bestselling author. Somewhere along the way we lost her. It wasn’t always like this you know. Now there’s no turning back.”

He nodded. “The pressure to be on top can and has destroyed many. All’s not lost. There is still hope she’ll snap back and learn from her mistakes.”

“Don’t bet on it.” She turned away and shuffled toward the elevators.

He sighed. He’d never envied Karma’s position of having to decide when to reward and when to punish. He had always erred on the side of hope but in this case, he wished They’d stop enabling and let Evangeline hit rock bottom.

“Your wish is my command.”

He smiled and noted she’d turned into her human form after she’d materialized. Just like her to wait for the perfect moment to enter the earthly realm. Now she can’t hear my thoughts as easily. This could be fun. “They granted your request?”

She nodded. “How much longer must you stay here tonight? I’d hoped we could celebrate Yeshua’s decision—alone.” She moved to within inches of his lips and smiled.

Shirtless muscular man with tattooes on his body.Desire rolled through him as her scent filled his nostrils. “I’ve done all I can here tonight. Your plan must progress on its own from here. I managed to convince her husband she must stay for at least another three days.”

She purred and traced her fingertips along the lapels of his lab coat. “Time enough for one of our quickies before I have to take care of my next charge.”

He brought her hand to his lips. “You’ll have to get used to the idea that seventy-two hours of fucking isn’t considered a quickie for humans.”

She laughed. “Do tell.”

“I’d rather show you.” They moved toward the on-call room arm in arm. No one appeared to notice them as they made their way through the hallway. He pushed the door open to find the room completely empty.

She followed him into the room and then tossed her jacket on the chair.

He reached behind her, locked the door and then pinned her against it.

“What if we’re caught?” Her breathless question sent quivers through his body.

“That’s over half the fun and what makes this the best demonstration of what horny mortals do to satisfy their urges.” He lifted her up as his lips found hers eager as ever. He pulled up her blue jean skirt to find a bare ass. He groaned as her skin warmed with his touch.

A deep throaty laugh tickled his ears and buzzed against his lips. He had to have her now. His cock strained against his scrubs as he made his way to the bed against the opposite wall. He tossed her down and dropped his pants as she spread her legs before him.

He gasped and then in haled deeply. Her scent of arousal was enough to trigger a dribble of precum from his throbbing cock. He shoved her legs wide and then plunged into her. He steadied himself as he balanced his weight on his forearms and then pounded her pussy with abandon.

“Jus…tice…” Her cunt clenched around him and welcomed him home as only she could do. No human or goddess for that matter had ever been able to do that for him and demand more.

Not that he was complaining.

She wrapped her legs around his hips and then dug her heels into his ass to help pull him inside her with each thrust. Her nails raked along his back through his scrub top.

Beautiful girl and fashionable muscular man posingThe thought of them still partially clothed as they enjoyed each other turned him on even more. By the look in her eyes, he knew she felt the same. This had been exactly what he’d wanted to experience with her in her first moments as a human and it morphed into something much more than he’d expected.

He watched her skin flush from the top of her full breasts, up her neck and color her cheeks. Her pupils dilated into black orbs that pulled him in. Seconds before he thought he’d fall into them, she tossed her head back and cried out as her body shook violently beneath him.

He thrust into her a half dozen more times and willingly followed her over the edge. He collapsed on top of her as the last of his cum shot out of him.

She pushed him over so they could lay side by side with their arms and legs still entangled. “I think I like this quickie. Why haven’t we done this before?”

He brushed her curls away from her forehead and then kissed her, slowly, with eyes wide open. “You’ve not been human before nor have we had to sneak around. We’ve been able to enjoy each other whenever we wanted in your realm. This will be a whole new experience for you.”

She pouted. “So you’ve experienced this rush with your mortal conquests before me?”

“They’ve meant nothing to me. It’s you who has always had and will always hold my heart.”

She clenched her inner muscles down on his softening cock. “Now I claim this for only me as well.”

He smiled and devoured her lips again. Their tongues swirled and danced with each other until his dick filled and stretched her again. Even as a human she’s insatiable!

“It’s about damn time.” She moved her hips enough to glide along his shaft until both of them shuddered.

He nuzzled her breasts as they clung to each other, chests rising and falling in sync. He kissed the cleft between her tits and moved up along her neck, hitting all of her hot zones. He’d hoped they’d be the same for her now and had been pleased to find her even more aroused. Unfortunately, he needed a little more time to recover.

She giggled “Already I’m not liking being a human. I have to wait too long to have you again.”

“There will be plenty of time for that later. This was just an appetizer of things to come now that you’ll be with me in this world. That’s what you’d planned to do right? Stay with me?

Nice smiling couple of athletic man and slim blond woman.

She noticed the momentary look of panic in his eyes. She frowned and touched his face. He’s actually worried I want to be with anyone else during my journey. “Justice…”

He untangled from her arms and stood up from the bed. He picked up their discarded clothing and shrugged. “You don’t owe me anything. Yeshua finally granted your wish. I’ll not stand in your way. You need to partake in all that being human has to offer, even if it means you take on other lovers.”

She sat up and stared. She had to admit she hadn’t thought that far ahead but the thought of other lovers intrigued her. “If there are to be other lovers, I wish to share all of them with you. I have no desire to be with anyone else unless we do it together.”

He helped her from the bed and kissed her. “That can be arranged.” He wiggled his eyebrows up and down to get her to giggle again.

“Spill it. What do you have going on in that mind of yours?”

He shook his head. “Nope. This will be a surprise for later. For now we have to get back to Evangeline. She’s finally asleep with the help of medication but I had to put her in restraints to keep her here. Unless she agrees to a longer stay, I can only keep her here for the three days.”

“Plenty of time. While you’ve distracted me with this surprise, another charge is in need of my help. I have to visit one who is to be rewarded for all her goodwill. It’s the reason I came here today.”

He spun her around and placed her into a dip. “Not for the quickie?”

“Alas, no, but that was an amazing. You may know her. She’s one of the volunteers here—Charlotte Mayberry.”

His face lit up. She runs the library here and visits the children’s ward to read to them every day.”

“Did you know she’s homeless.”

He visibly paled. “What?”

She nodded. “She spends her time here to keep busy. She lost her home after her husband died. She’s been living in a shelter off and on for the last two years.”

“I don’t understand. She has family. Why haven’t they helped her?”

“She doesn’t want to be a burden. Yesterday she was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer. She’s refused treatment because she wants to go and be with her husband. I’m here to grant her wish.”

“To let her die?”

She shook her head. “I’ve arranged for her to meet the most wonderful man, a widower. The two must meet today for it all to work as I’ve planned. I’ll need your help to pull it off.”

“I’ll do whatever it takes to bring joy to our Charlotte. The kids call her Charlie. Stage four? She’s so young…”

Karma nodded. “She gives so much to everyone else at the expense of her own health and happiness. Fate and I agreed Charlotte—Charlie is to go on and can do so in this lifetime. Her husband will be able to join her through this widower.”

“How will she know it’s him?”

“The heart always knows its soulmate. The realization will hit them both hard. We’ll need to be there to encourage them to follow their hearts and not be afraid to love again.”

“The cancer?”

She smiled. “True love conquers all. Both of them will have to take a leap of faith and believe they are meant to be together.”

“With a little push from us?” He winked.

“More like a gentle nudge. Come on. We’ll miss our window if we stay here any longer.”

“This is where not being human would help move things along. We’d be able to materialize to wherever we need to go in the blink of an eye.” He scurried after her as she sashayed toward the elevators that would take them up to the cafeteria.

“I can still do that but it can drain my powers. I have to be careful not to weaken myself to the point I’m unprotected.”

He leaned against the back of the elevators and crossed his ankles. His eyes appeared to glaze over.

She laughed and snuggled close to him. “I’ll explain all of it later. Right now we have to make sure Charlie and Joe’s worlds collide.”

Three Four, Karma’s Knocking on Your Door #KIBJ #paranormal

Chapter 2 Karma meme

Welcome back to Behind Closed Doors and the next chapter from Karma In Blue Jeans (Immortal Siblings). For those of you who are visiting for the first time, let me give you a brief explanation of this book and the series. Karma’s story came about in response to several issues I’ve seen crop up in the publishing world as well as the news and my life outside of my writing. We’ve all heard the “what comes around goes around” saying and many toss out barbs about the Karma Train coming for their enemies. I thought why not give Karma a face and a voice. Let’s see how she doles out punishments and rewards. The more I wrote in my Karma notebook, the more I found her story as well as those of her siblings would fit well as a cross over between my Now and Forever series and my Kayne Legacy series. Both have gods and goddesses as characters and the Immortal Siblings series is the perfect vehicle for me to explore the other characters and tie together all of story lines. It’s been a natural process for me because all of them are connected. It had been difficult for me to keep them separate so I gave in and let them tell their story.

This book has been a pleasure to write. I’m loving all the characters even the villains. LOL! I hope you do too. If you missed last week’s posting of Chapter One, click HERE. When you’re all caught up, please join me back here for Chapter 2. Leave a comment. I’d love to hear what you think of the story so far!

Enjoy!

Chapter 2

 

Beautiful blond woman.hairstyle.salon care.sexy young girl “Did you see what I’ve been dealing with here? She’s going to lose her soulmate because she can’t admit she’s cheated and lied her way to where she is today.”

Karma sighed. “Ms. Cross will be confronted by those she used to lead in attacking others. They’ve already begun cutting ties with her. Reviews are being pulled and changed from five stars to one star. The tumble she loved to watch her competition go through is happening to her and headed into a full on free fall.”

“Is there hope for her?”

She draped her arm around Rhiannon’s waist. “There’s always hope. She simply has to reach out and accept the help offered with grace and humility.”

“Yeah, that’s not going to happen based on her track record with me.”

Lucius materialized in front of them. Karma smiled. He’d been stopping in on her assignments more and more as of late. Not that it bothered her. She adored him and wished they’d spent more time together instead of it always being on the job.

He nodded and appeared to be pleased with her work. “You went with a multipronged attack with this one. Brilliant.”

Rhiannon laughed. “She did learn from the best.”

He bowed and kissed her hand. “I do my best to share my secrets with those meant to take over when I’m gone.”

Karma sighed. “So you’ve made up your mind then? The Priestess is worth giving up everything and eternity for?”

He hugged her and chuckled. “She is and so much more. Brigid understands me and accepts who I am. She didn’t ask me to give up my powers. In fact, she left me when I told her my intentions.”

“She did what?” Karma admired Brigid more in that moment than she’d ever admit. She was willing to walk away from her soulmate in order for him to continue as one of The Three. That took courage and sacrifice, two traits she looked for in all mortals.

“It’s when Yeshua knew He couldn’t deny my request. While we’d created so many worlds together, He could read my heart like no other. He knew before I did that I would do this.”

Rhiannon snorted. “It’s that family of hers. Fate intervened with the lot of them and their friends. When she sets her mind to something, Yeshua sees that it happens. You, dear Brother were a casualty of that, albeit a pleasant one. Personally I adore the little minx who claimed your heart. She’s full of fire, the only kind able to control you.”

He smiled. “That she does. Now that I know Karma will be able to handle things, my transformation will take place soon.”

“Not before I get to spend time among them.”

“It’s not necessary…”

“I disagree. Cases like Evangeline Cross are easy. There are others who will take more finesse. I need to know how they think in certain situations. That will help me design their trials and tests.”

“I’m not the one you have to convince. You may be able to use Fate’s intervention with Brigid’s family to your advantage.”

homme caucasien beaut - fauteuil baroqueRhiannon agreed. “Mortals haven’t changed much through the centuries. Sure they have more toys and can communicate with each other instantly, but at their core, they’re all the same. If you feel you must experience life among them to do your job, then Yeshua will agree.”

“He wasn’t having any of it the last time I broached the subject.”

“He’s had time to mull it over and has listened to a few of us who feel you need to do this.”

She stared at Rhiannon. “What do you mean? Have you talked to Him about this behind my back?”

“No. It wasn’t a secret. You’ve been busy lately and I simply took the opportunity to let him know I supported you. I reminded him He has allowed me to do what you’ve asked and it hasn’t changed me.”

Lucius took both of their hands. “Come. Let’s make your case to Them now. Between the three of us, I’m sure we can get Their blessing.”

She smiled. “Are you sure you must leave us for The Priestess?”

He nodded. “She has been my destiny from the very beginning. Now is our time. One day you’ll be faced with the same choice.”

“Bite your tongue! I have more than enough on my plate with Justice and his shenanigans. Living disguised as a mortal is one thing. Giving up my powers is another—and completely out of the question.”

The three of them faded and left Evangeline alone to discover just how far she’d fallen.

 “@evangeline is a fraud and thief #StopPlagiarism”

“@evangeline lied and cheated her way up the ranks #TheMightyWillFall”

“I’ve deleted all @evangeline books. Will support the #RealAuthor”

 

She scrolled through page after page of tweets all calling her out for an explanation or joining the mobs bombing her everywhere. With one click, she deleted her Twitter account. I don’t need that bullshit. She opened a new window and navigated to her website to shut off comments on her blog. She’d decided to not go the extra step and make the site private—yet. She needed to keep up the illusion she was going to fight this lawsuit and not run from it.

She gulped down the last of the wine in her glass and then deleted the nasty comments that had escaped her filters. Her eyes snapped away from her the screen as the front door slammed. She cringed as the telltale sound of broken glass reached her ears. My vase collection!

She bolted from her office to find her daughter, Marissa on her knees picking up the pieces of glass and pottery that covered the floor. “How many times have I told you not to slam that door?”

Her daughter sat back on her heels and glared. “Are you kidding me right now? I’ve had the worst day of my life thanks to you and you’re bitching about me slamming the door. Unfrickinbelievable!”

“Hey! You may be eighteen, but you live in my house and you won’t talk to me like that.”

Marissa rolled her eyes. “I don’t give a shit, Mother. It’s all over school what you did. Do you have any idea what it’s like to have people ask if you’re still going to follow in your mother’s footsteps? My English professor called me into her office today and asked me flat out if everything I’d turned in to her was my own work.”

She stood and carried the larger pieces of debris to the kitchen. She tossed them in the trash and then grabbed the Dustbuster from the charging station. She stomped back to the entryway and collided with Marissa, knocking her to the floor again. “Look. This whole mess will be worked out in court. It’s all lies. The judge will see it and then we can get back to normal.”

Marissa stood up and leaned against the wall. “You’re delusional. I’m not a little kid you can tell bullshit lies to anymore.”

“I’m not lying, Mar. This is all a big mistake. I submitted every book to Bliss, worked through edits, and rewrites. They’re my words…my work.”

“No. You stole someone else’s work and passed it off as your own. The original manuscripts didn’t belong to you. You had no right to send them to Bliss or any other publisher.”

“You’re turning on me too? First your father and now you. I can’t do this right now. I have to get ready for my doctor’s appointment.”

“Appointment for what? Is it for your fibromyalgia you don’t have or are you having another cancer scare?”

She slapped Marissa and knocked her back against the wall. Her body shock and her chest tightened. It took all her self-control not to slap her daughter over and over again. “You will show me respect while you live under my roof.”

Marissa’s eyes glistened with tears and she touched the red hand print blooming on her cheek. “Don’t worry. I’ll be out of your hair within the hour.”

She reached out but froze when Marissa recoiled from her touch. This was supposed to be my happily ever after and now it’s all gone to hell.

Woman using laptopEvangeline vacuumed up the rest of the shards and then returned to her office to start damage control. She opened up her private Facebook group page dedicated to her street team, Evie’s Angels. At least these people stand by me.

“Hello my Angels!”

“Evie! We’ve been worried sick.”

“I told you she wouldn’t leave us hanging.”

She grinned and licked her lips. This is going to be so fucking easy. “I had to gather myself together before I came here to be with ya’ll—the only people who’ve stood by me through everything.”

She giggled with glee as message after message popped up expressing their unwavering support. All the expensive prizes she’d given them to promote her work had not only helped her sales but had ingratiated her in their hearts. They’d do anything to get another handbag or piece of one of a kind jewelry. Little did they know, all of it was as fake as her online persona. She couldn’t give a rat’s as about any of them, but if they could get her through this, she’d consider changing her mind for some of them. The rest had always grated on her nerves.

“This legal snafu is just that. It’s all a huge misunderstanding. Each book Bliss put out under my name is mine. The truth will come out. In the meantime, I could use your thoughts and prayers. With my books pulled from Bliss and Amazon, my family will have to take a huge hit. I found out today my last mammogram detected another suspicious spot. It’s been five years cancer free for me and now it all comes tumbling down.”

She watched as more messages flashed on her screen detailing support and asking her to tell them what they can do. “I need help, my Angels. I’ve set up a GoFundMe account to help with the medical bills and other expenses with this court case. I’m not asking you all for a dime. You’ve done more than enough for me already just by being here. If you could share the link for the GoFundMe page, I’d be forever grateful.”

She waited.

And waited.

No response to her plea.

Sweat trickled down her back as the seconds ticked away.

“You got it, Evie!”

“Anything for our girl!”

Thank God. She emptied the last of the bottle of wine into her glass and read every word of encouragement as they filled her screen.

And then it happened.

“Sorry, Evangeline. I won’t share your crowd funding link like the rest of these lemmings. I stayed here waiting for you to explain yourself, maybe even apologize for what you’ve done and for all the lies you’ve told. Boy, talk about a huge disappointment! Instead of begging for a handout, maybe you should tell the truth. Your daughter did.”

The room spun in front of her eyes. The glass slipped from her hand, bounced on the floor, and then soaked the white carpet with the wine. Her phone blew up with email and text notifications. She stood and clutched her chest. Her knees buckled and then she collapsed.

Marissa rushed into the room.

She couldn’t hear a word her daughter yelled at her, nor could she speak. She tried to squeeze her hand to let her know she was still there, but her body failed her again. If I get through this, I’ll make it right. I promise.

Chapter 3 will be up next week! You’ll get to meet Karma’s lover Justice and more of her Immortal Siblings
