Madame Lilly; Wicked (Vol 4) Book Tour. To celebrate (Vol. 2) will be free 10/24th to 10/28th

Title: Madame Lilly; Wicked
Genre: Historical Fiction Horror

It's 1890 in New Orleans, a time of rich white men, sprawling plantations, Voodoo, high class parties and the unspoken Placage. Amidst the thick heat, magic and sorrow, a beautiful Creole woman exists in this cruel world. Although born free, she never knew life without the call of a ‘Master’ – until now.

Blessed with an ancient power, Madame Lily has an agenda that has galvanized her into the deepest reaches of High Society and to the darkness that is swirling with Voodoo.

Elijah is a First Made Protector tasked to guard and cleanse the world of the evils that roam. He spent millennia with only goodness in his heart until cursed – one meant to corrupt his very soul with love, obsession and infatuation… for Madame Lily, a woman that should rightfully be his adversary.

Drawn together by fate and magic, these two forces face off and sparks fly. A love that never should have been is born – a love that may change everything for both of them.


Excerpt
1890 New Orleans – Julien Dubois’ mansion

Hearon, on the other hand, made herself known. She walked into the kitchen and saw the looks on the help’s faces. One woman opened her mouth to scream but Hearon moved so swiftly she was in front of the woman before a noise could escape. The woman stifled her cry while her eyes bulged to no end.

Hearon placed a delicate finger on the woman’s full, cracked lips. “Shhh,” she warned. “Not one word.” She whispered so close to her ear, that her lips caressed her lope. She glared at the helpers, making sure no one moved but her. She then carried a tray into the formal dining area and set it next to the rest of the hoard of food.

“. . . of course this is a perfect time to buy up more . . .” Julien lost his wording when he saw Lilly’s companion standing next to one of his business partners. The man was intoxicated by the lovely Creole girl dressed in a plain white dress.

“Julien, why didn’t you tell us that you kept such beauties to serve you in your home?” The man, Francisco Becerra, just so happened to be the appointed head of New Orleans law enforcement. He was admiring Hearon as she offered him a drink. In fact a few of his guests were political figures.

Julien could hardly move when he looked into Hearon’s fulfilled eyes. While the gentlemen snickered amongst themselves, Hearon’s eyes blinked ice black once then returned to their emerald shade as her admirer turned back to her. She played the bashful servant well. She was far from pure and though it had been centuries since she’d lain with a man, his touch did not bother her. Other than it being a human hand.

The color washed away from Julien’s face and the glass of bourbon shook in his tight grip. He tried to participate in the lighthearted banter but instead sweat gave away his mood. Julien Dubois, a man of complete and utter control, was slowly losing the battle. He hated it. He loathed the necromancer named Madame Lilly.

“Oui, Julien, pourquoi l'avez-vous pas?” Hearon shyly asked Julien as her skin began to turn coal black from her face to her neck, then traveled downward. Threatening the host that his actions would dictate hers.

The already drunken men were unaware of Hearon’s altering appearance, unlike the servant girl. She covered her mouth, whimpering at the sight of Hearon, then rushed out the room. Hearon smiled at the scared girl then her skin returned to her host’s natural body color.

“Oh and look, an educated, mixed breed,” Chief Becerra said, sounding a bit confused about her knowing another language. “Do you teach her such verses in bed?” he snickered. “What a trying task that mush have been, but a pleasurable charge I’m sure.” The man raised a glass to Julien as did the rest of the men, congratulating their host for educating a half-breed.

Hearon eyed the chief as if she could snap his neck for his ignorance.

Julien took a drink, angered by this sudden, daunting turn of events. “Trying is not a word that I would use.” He cordially smiled then turned to Hearon. “Excuse me for a moment, gentlemen. I must tend to her outspokenness.” Julien snatched Hearon by her arm and escorted her out in the hall. There she squeezed the man’s hand, removing his foul limb from her body.


“Shit, demon.” He pulled his arm away. “Where is the witch?” Julien asked through gritted teeth.

“Follow me,” Hearon ordered and Julien begrudgingly followed her down the hall in his own home. Julien was disgusted with the way Lilly treated him as if a domestic.

In the study Lilly was sitting on his red chaise lounge comfortably with Theolus standing at her side.

“Hello, Cousin,” Lilly said before he could even shut the door.
