Let’s take a moment to get to know Christine Murphy, the author of the Sphinx Warriors series a little better shall we.
- Favorite Author
Christine Feehan started my love of paranormal books and JR Ward permanently emblazoned it in my psyche forever. Gena Showalter also knows how to spin one heck of a hot adventurous and passionate love story.
- Favorite Book
More of a Series Person – The Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward. Also my latest buy – Burning Dawn, one of the Angels of the Dark Series by Gena Showalter.
- Sweet or Salty
Sweet. Lots of sugar in life to keep me going. Especially the chocolate variety.
- Dream Vacation
Hanging out on the beach in the Florida Keys with a hot guy.
- Music or Silence
Gotta have music. It fires me up and brings up the romance factor and helps me envision the scenes for my books. My favorite artists/groups are Theory of A Dead Man, Imagine Dragons, and Nickelback. Just dreamy.
- Plotter or Prankster
Hmmm. Don’t think I’m much of a prankster so will have to go with plotter. I’m always behind the scenes working on something or up to no good.
- Vanilla or Kink
Unfortunately I’m pretty vanilla – down to earth, although sometimes I wish I was a little more wild and on the kinky side. Oh well, I just take these kind of thoughts and use them in my writing and perhaps as I get older I’ll be more adventurous.
- Morning Bird or Night Owl
Definitely a Night Owl. I would prefer to sleep in, if it wasn’t for my day job. I love to stay up late when the hot sun has gone down and I can kick back on the porch with a nice cool drink. My creativity is best at this time too when all the worries of the day are over with.
- Half Full or Half Empty
Not sure which I am but all I know is that I am always searching for that something more. Perhaps I am the half empty then because sometimes I seem to be missing something in life.
- Boxers, Briefs or Bare
Bare is always yummy, but a good set of briefs always brings out sexy stomach muscles in a man. Or a pair of low-riding jeans.
RELEASING SEPTEMBER 1, 2014
Let your imagination be captured one again in the domain of the Sphinx Warriors, protectors of the Earth, and the women who bring out their need, passion, and love giving them purpose beyond their destined role as Warrior. The next mesmerizing sixth book in the Sphinx Warrior Series tempts you with the life of Ashlyn and her difficult past and the desire to be a part of the Sphinx family. Trust is an issue for her as she has been hurt in the past and must come to grips with her fears. Tempted to run and with her past suddenly crashing in on her new life, Ashlyn must decide to stay and fight or leave the life behind which she truly craves. Literally running head on into Caleb, the youngest of the Warriors with challenges of his own, Ashlyn is drawn to him by the realization that together they can learn their true purpose and Powers which have been suddenly revealed. She is still challenged in her trust, but she wants nothing more than to completely succumb to her passion for Caleb. Caleb has no intention of ever letting Ashlyn go now that he has her and will do anything to keep her even when their ultimate fate seems to be drawing them into a head long confrontation with the invading enemy.
The bath was filled with the clearest aqua blue water he had ever seen. The urge to dive in and wash the Wraith blood from his body was almost overwhelming but the presence of Ashlyn before him stilled him in place. She was Egyptian artistry herself as she stood at the end of the pool with her back to him. She had removed her boots, weapons belt, and her fatigue pants so he could admire her long sleek legs. Her fiery auburn hair was loose hanging down her back until it almost touched her waist. His hands shook with the desire to touch her and run his fingers through her hair.
>From her stance Caleb could see she was still upset. Hands on her hips, Ashlyn’s very aura kept the two Egyptian females who were dressed in white robes away from her. Caleb could tell they were just trying to help her bathe but she wasn’t having any of it. He felt her energy surge for just a moment and with a hiss she demanded, “Both of you out and make sure you keep anyone else out of here until I’m finished!”
Obviously not needing any more encouragement the two women skittered away and out the door on the opposite end of the huge bath. Yeah, his Ashlyn was definitely still upset but it eased him to see she was acting more like her old self. Standing where he was Caleb couldn’t see her face but the rolling of her shoulders in an attempt to wind down told him she still needed space. When she raised her arms and lifted her long locks off the back of her neck her t-shirt lifted even more exposing her bare bottom.
Caleb swallowed thickly . He wanted nothing more than to press Ashlyn’s sensual body up against his. Fighting the urge was almost impossible but for her he demanded his body to behave. She needed time and he already knew she had issues with males. Whatever had happened to her in the past had caused long lasting effects on her personality and behavior. The Foundary surfaced in his mind and he was almost certain she had been abused by their hands.
Not wanting to, but knowing he had to leave her alone until she was ready to approach him, Caleb started to back away towards the door. He froze in place when she turned her head ever so slightly to the side and whispered, “Don’t go, Caleb. Stay.”

Traveling throughout the United States and locations throughout the world, I finally found the perfect place to call home and settle down in a small town outside the Tampa Bay area in Florida. Looking out my back lanai, there is a small pond where the wild-life will gather and the flowers bloom in exotic pinks and purples. This is my place of peace and freedom that I have searched for and where my husband and crazy African Gray Parrot, Raider, hang out with me. It’s the place where my creativity runs wild as I spin tales of adventure and passion. I have been writing in my head since I was a teenager and I finally realized I needed to capture these unique characters, civilizations, conflict, passion, and love in writing. To capture the strong, spirited, and powerfully attracted characters and all of their adventures and share it with others who are searching for that very thing to make their lives more exciting. If I accomplish nothing else in life, I hope to share the romantically magical worlds and the lovers that I see with all of the passionate readers out there.
