Among the dregs of vampire society, there’s no safety in numbers.

It’s been a year since the vampires of Maelstrom threw Aviva to the wolves. When her next assignment arrives, it’s clear that her elders haven’t forgiven her past sins. She’s to take a position watching over the clan’s weakest members: the old vampires who can’t be trusted to keep the supernatural world’s secrets. Locked away in a crumbling home by the ocean, they exist in isolation, nearly forgotten by the world. It’s a boring job, an assignment more insulting than her placement with the werewolves, and a terrifying warning of where she could end up if she doesn’t change her ways.

Aviva is determined to keep her head down, prove herself, and atone for her mistakes. But when a group of vampire hunters calling themselves the Blood Defenders attacks the home, Aviva has no choice but to step into her role as guardian and hit the road with a group of misfit vampires who are as much a danger to the world as they are to themselves.

When the Blood Defenders shatter the heart of Maelstrom’s power and leave them with nowhere to run, Aviva and her band of monsters have no choice but to stand and fight to save a world that despises them.

Don’t forget that book one, Resurrection, is currently available for just 99 cents on Amazon! This is a limited time offer, so be grab it soon!

COVER1WITHTEXT

Her gifts will be her salvation… or her downfall.

No one gave Aviva a choice about becoming a monster. Since the night of her murder she’s been forced to accept a new reality—burned by sunlight, dependent on the blood of the living, searching for her place in a dark world she didn’t believe existed until she awoke as a vampire.

She’s still struggling to accept her fate and master her dark powers when the news arrives: rogue vampires are torturing and killing human residents of the city, threatening the secrecy and uneasy peace of the supernatural world.

As the hunt begins, Aviva’s deliciously distracting trainer, Daniel, helps her seek out her unique strengths. The gifts she discovers are shameful in the eyes of vampire society—and they may be the only thing standing between a pack of ruthless paranormal killers and the unsuspecting humans they prey on.

Ensuing Darkness - Cover

 

Ensuing Darkness
(The Dark Chronicles: Book 1)

 

Kota’s hometown is harboring more secrets than she ever imagined.
Hunting, partying, and hanging with the guys has made up the most of her frustratingly simple life, and she’s looking hard for something else. Something new. Unfortunately for her, she gets her wish senior year when a family of dancers comes Waltzing into her life.
Unbeknownst to Kota however, the Peters are hiding dark secrets and a dark past that’s still chasing them. Their dangerous mission needs to go perfectly, but when the twins get mixed up in a taboo romance with Kota and her best friend Sue, things get nasty for everyone.
Driven by her inexhaustible curiosity and the disturbing effect the Peters have on her, Kota starts pushing her way towards the truth without hesitation. All at once, she’s surrounded by everything she never knew existed, and now more than just her life is in danger.
So be careful what you wish for…

An Upper YA Paranormal Fantasy

 

Teaser:
“― I said I would protect you from anything, right? Well, I will, but there’s something about them that puts my teeth on edge.”
I really couldn’t blame Louis, I mean, they were vampires. Regardless of the fact that I’d slept an entire night at their house and left without a single bite mark or puncture wound of any kind, it was in their nature. I also couldn’t help feeling a little more on his side now that I knew the truth, but it was a big struggle now that the shock of it had lifted. On the one hand, Connelly was a vampire, a blood-sucking monster who could rip me to shreds with a flick of his wrist, but on the other hand, he had saved me from Randy. He had saved me, and that action in and of itself was what stopped me running away when he had shown his true form. That single act was what was keeping me… transfixed.

 

Excerpt:

“Kota, I’m begging you, stop right now before something bad happens. Before you get hurt.” On these last words, I had to stop. That was too close to what was really going on and I was suddenly on guard. Does he know their secret too? How?
“Louis, what exactly are you talking about?” I was nervous and scared. If he knew, they were in big trouble, but if he didn’t know, I didn’t want to give away anything that would make him suspect. “How do you think they’re going to hurt me?”
“Kota, listen,” he said, turning to completely face me now. “I’ve known people like them and they never do any good. These people are different in a bad way, and you may not see it truly now, but trust me, you will soon. Something will happen.”
“What if you’re wrong? What if they’re just different and they do do good?”
“If they’re just different, then they’re still drifters, and that means that what you and Connelly have isn’t going to last. He’s going to leave, and then you’ll be left. Hurt.” He sat up straighter now and added, “Either way you look at it, you’re gonna end up hurt if you stay with them ― Either physically or emotionally.”
I was trying to ignore how much his words hit me, and part of me thought I was getting so mad because I didn’t want them to be true. I couldn’t back down though, not now. I was too deep into it now to quit. I knew too much, and even though it had become dangerous, I was going to have to stick it out. I couldn’t let them down. “Then who should I be with? You?”
He looked surprised for a minute and then shrugged, saying, “Well, you know, I’ve always ―”
“That’s just the problem,” I interrupted. “Instead of just being a friend, you’re acting out of jealousy because you want me to be with you.”
“Kota, that’s not what I meant, and you know it.”
“How do I know for sure?”
“You know me, that’s how! I’m your best friend!”
“If you were really doing this all along just to get with me, then you weren’t really a friend at all.” The words were out before I could stop them and I bit my tongue. We both looked surprised and his face changed from being angry to being extremely hurt.

WIPpet Wednesday: Bite Night

Welcome to WIPpet Wednesday, where we share a snippet of a work in progress that in some way relates to the day’s date, hosted by the scrumdiddlyumptious K.L. Schwengel.

In keeping with last week, when I showed you a first draft (of a first scene) on the first, I’m going to give you something else from the same story for the 8th. Not an 8th draft, but the last 8 paragraphs of a scene I had a lot of fun writing.

To set the scene: Shivva has gone to the club, yadda yadda, it’s feeding time! She’s chosen a first-timer, taken him to a dark alcove, and tried to make him comfortable; the human’s emotions at the time of feeding will affect her, and she’s nervous enough about the assignment without him adding to it.

Content warning: much groping of bodies and nomming of necks.

Enjoy.

He pulls me closer with one arm while his other hand continues to explore, now pulling in frustration at my jeans, now slipping under my shirt. His skilled groping is a little distracting, but it sends delightful tingling sensations to places I don’t have much use for these days, and I let it continue as I press harder against him, kissing his neck down to his collarbone, nibbling a little, teasing myself. I could have had him by now, but it’s so much more fun to make it last.

His rapid breathing indicates that he’s enjoying himself already, but I trail my hand down over his chest, over the hard muscles of his stomach, lower, just to make sure. Hey, there. I laugh softy into his ear. “You like that?”

He whimpers in response, and I spin around, straddling his legs, grinding my hips into him. He groans. I can only imagine what anyone listening outside would think, but it’s no worse than what’s happening in whatever sound-proofed room Trixie has disappeared into. My lips are on his neck again, drawn to its heat and to that thing that goes beyond physical senses and calls to something deeper inside of me.

My body shudders. His hands are so warm; the chill of my skin doesn’t seem to bother him. Perhaps it excites him, as it does so many others. He pulls me closer still and moves his body beneath me, and I wonder whether perhaps feeding couldn’t wait just a little longer.

Then he moves his head to catch my lips with his own. The shock of it freezes him, but only for a moment. It’s our saliva that poisons them, that sends them out of their bodies with the overwhelming pleasure that keeps them coming back. He’s just had the tiniest taste of it, and he wants more. His tongue pushes into my mouth, any skill he’s acquired with his fragile human girlfriends forgotten in his desperation to be closer to me.

My left canine scrapes the delicate skin of his mouth. He gasps at the pain, but doesn’t pull back. The taste of blood nearly drives me mad. It is life. It is existence. It is everything.

I pull away before I can bite his tongue off. He twists his fingers into my hair to hold onto me, but his strength is nothing compared with mine. He’ll get what he wants, though. I lower my mouth to his neck again and sink my fangs into his skin, savoring the resistance of that thin barrier. He cries out. Yes, it hurts them, every time. And then my mouth is sealed over the twin wounds, drawing the blood from him, and the sounds he makes turn to soft gasps of wonder and disbelief as my poison overcomes everything else that’s in him. His pulse is strong and his blood hot, and it flows easily down my throat. The melancholy that plagued me earlier in the evening and the uncertainty I felt in Miranda’s office are gone. I am real, I am present, I am powerful, and there is nothing outside of this moment that matters.

It’s going to be hard to stop.
