We turned to look at one another meaning to only say a polite goodbye. We were eye to eye, almost exactly the same height, so close I could smell her without trying. The current was soaring through me and she parted her lips, staring into my eyes.
“Jewels,” she said so quietly I could barely hear her over the noise of the bar. She looked at my lips and I wanted to move closer to her and touch mine to hers. She looked back up into my eyes then and said, “The two stones that are within my soul, sapphires for the dark of the sky and aquamarines for my dreams of the beautiful blue oceans in the heat of the summer.”
I started into her eyes; they were a liquid blue, bright and warm. I couldn’t keep myself from saying, “Calista… you don’t know how much I want to take you in my arms right now and run away with you.”
Her eyes widened then, and a smile crept along her face. “Then let’s run,” she said…
The Pulse of Blue Blood My Blood Runs Blue Book 2
The Pulse of Blue Blood is a short story that should be read AFTER My Blood Runs Blue. This story of 17K words is the back story to Kristin & Calista. Reading this story before reading My Blood Runs Blue will spoil many plot points.
I was done with my shower and drying myself off when I felt his presence as he entered the bathroom. He came up behind me, splaying his hands over my bare stomach and the flames ignited again. “I
thought you were going to wait for me.”
The mirror was too foggy to see his image, and I was glad he couldn’t read my face. My mind was still closed to him, so he had no idea that I was a little upset with him.
His hands wandered over my body, squeezing my breasts and pinching my nipples and any thought of anger for him fled. When Julian put his hands on me, I could think of nothing else but him.
Julian whipped his shirt over his head and threw it to the floor before his hands were back on me. He had me pinned between his heated body and the cold stone of the vanity. I shivered at the contrast in temperatures, and arched back against him, bringing my ass in direct contact with his bulging erection.
Julian pushed my shoulders down, bending me over as he went to his knees behind me. His hands pushed my thighs apart and his tongue licked over my sensitive tissue. He probed me with his tongue, wrapping
a hand around my leg to reach around to the front and rub against the bundle of nerves that was now begging for his attention.
“Jules,” I cried out as he put me quickly over the edge. My body shook from the orgasm as he kissed and nipped at my ass, sliding his hands up and down my thighs.
“Turn around,” he said huskily, and it took a moment before my body would comply. Once turned, he lifted me to sit on the counter and went back to his knees.
My head fell back and bounced off the mirror as he licked down my center. He inserted two fingers into me, slowly pulling them out and then pushing them back in. His tongue licked along the crease of my
thigh and knew what was coming. It took him only another second before he latched his sharp teeth into the vein there and pulled my blood into his body. He continued his in and out movement, using his
thumb to press on my clit and I shattered a second time.
When I came down from that one, Julian was breathing hard as he pulled his teeth out and licked the punctures to close them. He stared into my face, his amazing blue eyes sparkling with ferocious intent.
“Turn back around.”
I couldn’t move my body, so Julian lifted me quickly and put me back over the counter. My legs shook as he pushed me down with one hand and I heard him wrestling with his pants. A moment later, Julian
slammed into me from behind and I gasped as he filled me.
These were the times when Julian and I connected the most. Not just our bodies moving together, but our minds connecting, our hearts and souls colliding into one being. Julian pounded against me and I put
my hands on the mirror so I could push back against him, taking everything he gave me. A few moments later, Julian pulled me up so I was standing and he immediately dug his teeth into my neck.
I felt his desire fill me along with his love. I knew he loved me more than anything else in the world, except our daughter. There was never any doubt when he took my vein. As he pulled the blood from my body, we both went over the edge again.
I knew that there was another reason that Julian was feeding more from me during regular sex than just pleasure. He was traveling again, and before he traveled, he took more blood from me than any other
time. It helped him keep his strength up, and made us both feel closer to the other one while he was gone.
After he pulled his fangs out of my neck, he whispered, “I love you more than life, Calista.”
“I love you, too” I replied softly. And I did love him. I did.

What are you doing there, man?” I spoke out loud to myself as I looked out the window of my patrol car.
Someone was slipping between the houses across the street from where I was parked. It was a quiet night in the township, and I was looking for a car or two to pull over, but this looked as if it was going to be more fun. The guy was about five hundred feet away and hidden in the deep shadows of the moonless night, but I could still see him. Not every perfect detail, but I could make out enough of him to know that he was probably doing something that he shouldn’t be doing. My keen eyes could take in things that a mere mortal person could not. Most mortals probably wouldn’t have even noticed the guy from this far away.
I pushed the button to lower my window, reaching out with my sense of hearing to listen and see if there were any other telltale signs of the man being up to no good. A muffled cracking of glass told me, why yes, he was indeed doing something that he shouldn’t be. I grinned and quietly opened my car door, glancing around to make sure no one was in the vicinity. I slipped into the darkness of a nearby tree, still listening and keeping an eye across the street. The windows of the house were dark, and there were no cars parked in the driveway.
The quiet tinkling of glass falling to the ground reached my ears and I scanned the area again before darting across the roadway. I could not only hear and see better than mortals, I could move faster and quieter, too. I made it across the street within a second and slid up against the side of the house, stopping again to listen. The sound of someone grunting and huffing made me pause. I heard the sound of things scraping and realized he was probably trying to hoist himself up through a window.
I was about to peer around the corner to see if I could stop him before he got inside, but an emotional barrage slammed into me. It invaded all of my senses and almost made me gasp out loud. Damn it, Alex! Not now! I thought. I sent back an irritated feeling to let him know I was not happy with the interruption at this exact moment. Alexander was my mate. Well, he was supposed to be. While we had completed the first part of our mating, we had not completed the second—the step that would make me a full-fledged vampire. It was also the part I was avoiding. I wasn’t ready for it yet. As quickly as I had sent off an irritated response, Alex returned an even more irritated one right back, almost demanding that I respond to him. It was a mental ping-pong match that frustrated me to no end sometimes. I shook my head and yanked up the walls around my mind, shutting him out completely. The ability to put up those walls was something that I learned to do very quickly. If I hadn’t, my mind would have been an open book to any vampire who wanted to listen in. It would also have been wide open to Alex’s demands.
And I don’t do demands.
I turned my attention back to the stranger. By this time, he had managed to climb into the house, and I could hear him moving around the room just beyond the window. I started to round the corner and got a whiff of the coppery sweetness of fresh blood. My instincts kicked in, and my front canine teeth started to tingle with anticipation. I spun back around the corner, taking a second to get my feelings under control and keep them in place. As long as I focused carefully, I could keep myself in check. I rounded the corner and moved to the window. On the edge of the windowsill was a small amount of fresh blood. The guy must have cut himself when he climbed through. I tried to keep the tempting metallic scent out of my nose, but it was hard. I needed to rein in the natural feeling that came with smelling warm blood, an intense feeling of hunger that comes as the sweet, coppery scent passes through our sensitive noses.
Once back firmly in control, I took a peek inside. The man had turned on a small flashlight and was digging in a drawer. The small beam of light was not strong enough to be seen outside the window by any human. He pulled open a jewelry box that sat on the dresser and I heard his quiet, “Bingo!”
He snatched a pillow off the bed, ripping the pillow out and throwing it to the floor. He started dumping the contents of the jewelry box into the pillowcase.
I quietly pulled my cellphone off my duty belt and moved back around the corner to text my partner, Mick. 325 Newtown—front door—wait.
It took a few seconds before he responded back, ENRT, which meant that he was en route to my location.
I kept an eye on the guy inside the room while I waited for Mick to show up. My eyes kept flitting over to the blood droplet. I needed to make sure I fed when I got off duty. It had been too long. While I waited for Mick, I sent him another text message. Burg in prog—one subject inside res—advise. This told him he needed to call it out on the radio and tell our dispatcher where we were and what was going on. I couldn’t take the chance of turning on my portable radio and letting the guy get spooked quite yet. I wanted to wait for my partner to get here.
The guy inside the house was now digging through the closet looking for valuables. I knew in a minute or two he would probably head on to the next room to see what else he could find.
While I waited for Mick, I briefly thought about Alex and how pissed off he was going to be that I shut him out, again. There would be hell to pay later, but I was getting used to that. This was not the first time I’d shut him out because he was demanding that I do something. I wasn’t sure how long it was going to take before he realized I wouldn’t bend to his demands.
I heard a car’s engine racing down the street; by the deep sound of it, it was a patrol vehicle. I waited until it stopped and I heard the car door open. I could hear the mobile radio in the distance and our dispatcher acknowledging that we were on scene. It was too low for the burglar to hear it inside the house though.
I waited until I knew that Mick was about into place before I put my plan into action. I pulled my flashlight slowly off the back of my duty belt, stepped up to the window, and shined the light inside. I didn’t shine the light for my benefit. I did it for his. Like a deer in the headlights of a car, the guy spun around with sheer panic in his eyes and froze. His wits took their time coming back to him and I felt his adrenaline spike. He stood up from the crouch he was in, and I felt the wheels begin to turn in his head. He looked over his shoulder at the door behind him, then back to me.
“Drop the stuff and come out the window,” I said to him in a very calm, professional police voice.
He looked around again, and did exactly what I figured he would do. He turned to run out the bedroom door. I pretended as if I was going to climb in through the window, and that got him moving faster. He spun around and took off down the hall. I knew he would either try to run out the front door that would be the furthest from me or hide somewhere in the house. I’d give him a minute to see what he did.
As I started back around the side of the home, I heard rattling around in the front part of the house, and then the sound of a door opening. I smiled. Bad guys were so predictable. A second later, I heard Mick say very calmly but forcefully, “Police, put your hands up and get down on the ground.”
“Fuck!” The guy’s voice reached me as I turned to the front side of the house. I watched his wide eyes staring down the barrel of Mick’s Glock. Very slowly, he got down to his knees and put his hands behind his head.
I stood in front of the guy and leaned down so that I was just inches from his face. “Bingo,” I said quietly to him, and he rolled his eyes.
I laughed as I walked around him and smacked his wrist with one of my steel handcuffs. The ratcheting sound that the cuffs made as they slid into place was an awesome sound. I pulled his arm behind his back and grabbed the other wrist to pull it down and lock it into place.

Can you, for those who don't know you already, tell something about yourself and how you became an author?
Back in October of 2010 I was on duty, driving around and around in circles on a very dark and quiet night shift patrolling. I had grabbed a cup of coffee and was stretching my legs in one of our parks. While I was drinking, I noticed something glowing near the tree line. It looked like eyes peering back at me, but it was to high off the ground to be an animal. For a while I stared at it, and the hair rose on my neck.
I glanced around to make sure there was no one else around and then when I looked back, it was gone. Needless to say, I got in my vehicle and left a little unnerved. As I drove, my bored imagination wondered if it had been a vampire, and if it was. If I was in danger from something, would it protect me or kill me.
The next day I was off, I sat down and wrote 4 chapters using this original concept. When I told my husband that I was writing a book, he laughed. When I handed him the chapters I’d written, he was surprised. When I published my first book, he was amazed and remains that way with over forty books published now.

What is your favorite part of this series and why?
It’s hard to pick my favorite part of the series, but I love the world that I created for these characters. Writing paranormal is different than writing contemporary or even suspense. In paranormal anything can happen, and I think that is what I like best in this series. I have tried to keep it somewhat possible, but at the same times, adding in elements that aren’t typically earth bound.
Tell us about your main characters- what makes them tick?
Well, Officer Kristin Greene was based off of me. She’s intense, loyal, committed to her job. She holds integrity to its highest level, and when she loves, she loves hard. It was easy to write her because I put myself in her shoes almost every moment of the writing process. What would I think or do in the same situation? How would I feel? One of the biggest things that Kristin is known for is not having control taken away from her. Yep, that’s me. I’m totally a control freak!
Are your characters based off real people or did they all come entirely from your imagination?
Many of the characters in the My Blood Runs Blue Series are based off people that I worked with. Kristin, of course, was me. Olivia is one of my best friends in real life. Kat and Izzy are also friends. Mick was my old partner, and Cole, Tom and Chief Henderson were people I worked with. Most of the men that Kristin deals with (Chief Henderson, Trent and Alex) are fictional characters, although Julian is someone from my past that I will never forget.
Do you see writing as a career?
It is my career. Three years ago, I suffered my second major concussion in ten years. It left me with a few issues, one a memory issue. I have trouble remembering some things and have some holes in my memory from the injury. I tried to go back but realized that I was a safety hazard. Cops are adrenaline junkies, and anytime my adrenaline spiked, my brain wanted to shut down.
So I decided to put my efforts into writing. While I still have issues, like headaches and fatigue, I keep a lot of notes on what I’m working on, and I’m content. I’m also a Pampered Chef consultant and that gives me a social outlet since I spend so much of my time in my own fictional part of my mind.
Do you prefer to write in silence or with noise? Why?
What is silence? Hahahah – I need music, always. I have different music for what I’m working on. With this series I listened to Evanescence and Within Temptation a lot. It’s dark, edgy and it fit with the plot I was working on. Each series has a different music playlist and I use that to get into my mind frame as I write.
One thing that I do prefer is to be alone. It’s harder to focus on what I’m doing when my daughter or husband are home. So I tend to write hard during the day when they are gone and do other business when they are home.
Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?
This is where the control freak in me comes out. I write what I want. I write what I need to in order to let the creative side come out. Yeah, I want to hear what my readers want, but I write from the heart and soul. I believe in writing real-life. People die, they grieve, they fall in love, and they break up. While we all want happily ever after, they are not always possible, and I tend to write that way.
So far, my readers have loved my books, so why change that when it’s working. Right?
How long on average does it take you to write a book?
I write really fast. I have written a 56,000 word books in 4 days – this was a crazy exception to my rule. When I am working intensely on a book, my goal is 4-6,000 words a day.
Mixing the Blue Blood was partial written a few years ago, but I stepped away from it because I wasn’t happy with the story. Now, years later, after tons of readers have reached out and asked about the next book, I finally dusted it off and got back to work. I wrote the last 45,000 words in six days.
When I am writing, and seriously into my book, I become possessed with the story. The characters take over. I write as much each day as my brain and my hands will allow.
