Kalila Montgomery’s Five Fave Kick-Some-Hiney Aids + giveaway

Kalila Montgomery’s Five Fave Kick-Some-Hiney Aids

Hey, everyone. I’m Kalila Montgomery, the unlucky protagonist in Wonderfully Wicked by C.J. Burright. I’m a dreamcaster, which means my nightmares leak while I sleep. It sucks. But a girl needs more than nightmares to protect herself, so here are my five favorite go-to weapons.

1. Knife. Easy to hide beneath your pillow or in your boot for easy access whenever annoying men who stalk you in coffee shops decide to show up in your bedroom at midnight. But if you use it, don’t lose it. Not much help for self-defense if you let your attacker knock it out of your hand. Yeah, yeah. I learn from my mistakes, so give it a rest.

2. Hands. A quick palm-strike to the nose or a fist to the gut is always a good start to a fight. Gets the blood boiling and the knuckles cracking. And if you’ve got the tiny, helpless female façade going for you, take advantage of it. They won’t even see it coming.

3. Feet. Wear boots. Always. That extra weight packs a punch with every kick to the macadamias or midsection. Good for crunching toes and beaks too.

4. Kitty-Cat Keychain. Hey, if you’re doomed to existence with a herd of cats, you might as well own it. Don’t be fooled by the sweet, fluffy façade of your local, sill-sitting kitty. They’ve got claws, fangs, and feline schemes, people. Watch out when you’re on the stairs - they’ll choose that moment to weave between your ankles, toppling you to your doom. It only makes sense to create an innocent-looking weapon after everyone’s favorite diabolical pet. Awww….isn’t it so cute--KAPOW! 

5. Your Own Pet V’alkara. If all else fails (or you just need a breather), and you happen to be a dreamcaster like me, let your V’alkara take over. He’s a weapon just waiting to jump on the warpath wagon. Okay, so it’s not like he’s going to sit back and let you attack solo, but he does come in handy from time to time. Every kick-hiney girl needs some backup once in a while. Might as well be the dreamy man of your nightmares, right? Wait, did I say dreamy? I meant possessive. Overprotective. Devious. Delicious. Don’t repeat the last one, or else. 
What’s your favorite weapon? Give me some good ideas, and you might win my prize pack: an e-copy of Wonderfully Wicked, your very own kitty-cat keychain, a WW bookmark, chocolate-covered coffee beans (you’re welcome), and…FUZZY SOCKS!

Wonderfully Wicked
by C.J. Burright
A dreamcaster with the ability to channel creatures from her nightmares, headstrong and cynical Kalila Montgomery longs for a peaceful, picket-fence life… until the man literally of her dreams kidnaps her.

Survival quickly becomes her number one goal, yet a growing attraction to the man in her nightmares is impossible to ignore. While she fears he will kill her, other, more terrifying enemies surround her, and Kalila succumbs to his scheme to escape. She may be his one hope for freedom…

A deadly combination of power, cunning, and cold-hearted charm, Lydon v'al Endrian fears nothing. Feels nothing. Chained to a brotherhood of men with the supernatural ability to invade dreams, he hunts dreamcasters to be harvested for their dreams and killed. His target: Kalila Montgomery. But Kalila awakens an undeniable dark desire and a longing for a freedom long-lost.

To gain everything he craves, Lydon must seduce Kalila before his plot is discovered… a hopeless challenge which, if failed, will earn him a death-sentence. Caught up in a dangerous world of secrets and obsession, doubt and betrayal, Kalila and Lydon face the nightmare of their lives, where love will either deliver them—or destroy them both.
