Spotlight, Excerpt: Black Bullet (The Order of The Senary Series Book Two) by L.D. Rose + giveaway

Black Bullet (The Order of The Senary Series Book Two)
by L.D. Rose
Genre: Dark Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Soul Mate Publishing
Number of pages: 293
Word Count: 94,000 words
Cover Artist: Fiona Jayde
Fledgling vampire Jonathan Kerr has just met his match.

Not even his past life as a former marine and FBI agent could prepare him for the battle against the monster inside him, struggling to take hold. After an old nemesis of the Senary surfaces in Brooklyn, unleashing chaos and terror in the battered borough, Jon sets out to take him down. Instead, he ends up with far more than he bargained for when he clashes with the beautiful half-vampire hybrid, Lawan Knight.

After escaping near death and suffering unspeakable horror at the hands of vampires, Lawan trusts no one, regardless of species. In between bouts of drunken stupor, her only goal is to exterminate all those who've wronged her, including every member of Jon's vampire bloodline. But Jon’s soulful eyes and quick smile crawls under her skin, transforming her black and white world into a hazy shade of gray.

As the days rapidly grow darker, Jon and Lawan turn to one another, but their inner demons threaten to tear them apart. The only way either of them will survive is if they overcome their greatest fear—love.


Jon only had time to take a single breath before a dark boot materialized in front of his face, the heel aiming straight for his throat. He snatched it before it made contact and twisted hard, thrusting it away from him. The limb yielded beneath his grip as his attacker collapsed beside him, metal clattering nearby. He levered to his feet, pulling a KA-BAR from his boot as pain lit up his nerves, setting his teeth on edge. His attacker was already standing, the blade of a gorgeous double-edged Kris sword pointed at his throat.

Holy shit.

His opponent was female, wearing a slim-fitting black battle uniform and carrying enough artillery to outfit a small army. Her jet-black hair was tied in a long braid and a black mask covered the lower half of her face. Her dark, almond-shaped eyes revealed her Asian heritage, her skin the color of caramel. A scabbard stretched across her back, strapped to her chest, along with the M16 she’d used to tear up the warehouse.

Jon took a step back, but she didn’t hesitate, launching at him with the blade. Metal clashed and sparks flew as he parried the long sword’s quicksilver arcs with his dagger. Although she limped from her injured leg, her strikes were hard, fast, and precise, each blow intended to kill. He nearly tripped over the pirate’s body as she backed him against the wall of the refinery, and he ducked as the blade screeched along the brick.

Before Jon straightened, he jabbed the butt of his KA-BAR into her knee and she yelped, stumbling backward. He slashed at her and caught nothing but air as she lurched away from him. She swung the Kris at his head and he raised the KA-BAR to engage and bind the sword. Both of their weapons trembled as their eyes locked on one another across the tangle of deadly metal.

And as her smoldering gaze drilled into him, he smelled it.

Dama de Noche.

The Lady of the Night, a nocturnal blooming flower he’d first smelled years ago in Nepal, when he was a human soldier. The scent was unmistakable, underlying the incense of vampire. The stench of leech didn’t belong to her, but the floral aroma was all her own.

She’s not a vampire.

Stunned by the revelation, Jon wavered, and she quickly took advantage of him. She sidestepped and lunged at him, sinking the blade in his shoulder. He shouted, dropping his KA-BAR as pain erupted from his dominant limb. Moving lightning fast, she yanked the blade out and sliced an arc across his chest. Luckily, she only scored his Kevlar, and as the sword swooped around again, Jon caught it with his gloved hands, silver biting into leather.

“You’re a hybrid,” he ground out. “I’m on your side!”

She pushed hard against him, drawing blood. “Bullshit.” Her voice was a rich contralto, edged with a growl. “You reek of Temhota.”

The Dama drew back and chopped at his belly, but Jon blocked her with his forearms, metal jarring against his bones. Finally, he managed to kick the blade out of her grip and it spun away, clattering to the ground. She somersaulted backward to retrieve it, but Jon caught hold of her braid in mid-air and wrenched on it. She cried out and landed face-first on the pavement, her breath audibly whooshing from her throat.

Jon wound her braid around his hand like a rope and straddled her, pinning her down. He tore the M16 off and tossed it as she writhed beneath him, fighting hard. Yanking her head up, he leaned close to her ear. “I’m not your enemy,” he hissed.

Her already shallow breath quickened and her struggles intensified, her sweet scent pumping from her pores in cloying waves. Panic. Fear. Restraining her like this completely terrified her.

Jon let up, knowing it was a mistake, but the shred of humanity still left in him couldn’t resist. The Dama slammed the crown of her head into his face and his retinas exploded in a staggering palette of reds, whites, and grays. His nose caved in, but not so far as to bury the bony shards into his brain. Blood poured out of him like a leaky faucet as he fell back, propping himself up on the wall of the refinery.

She was on him in an instant, chopping the edge of a flat hand into his trachea before smashing a fist in his ear. She wobbled to her feet as he struggled desperately to breathe—remember Jon, you don’t have to—and she gave him a vicious kick to his solar plexus, doubling him over. The pain was terrific, a cacophony of agony echoing from every corner of his body.

Jesus Christ, she was beating the shit out of him.

The Dama stood there, shaking, the fabric of her fallen mask fluttering to the ground. Jon blinked, trying to clear his blurred vision as she picked up her sword. He stole a glimpse of her face as she flung the mask up with the blade and caught it. A tattoo marked her cheek, the black symbol unmistakable but jagged, as if she’d thrashed during the process.

The same mark he’d painted on his chest lay branded on her face—the emblem of the Temhota.

Jon yanked down the neckline of his shirt, much like he had with the pirate, but this time he wiped at the mark, smearing it. The Dama paused in front of him, eyes narrowed, a gash marring her forehead. Even with the mark of his enemy on her face, she was breathtaking, and he didn’t have much breath left to spare.

“Not real,” he said past swollen lips, lifting trembling fingers stained with both paint and blood. “No mark.”

“But you are a leech.” She pointed the serpentine blade at the hollow of his throat.

He nodded, swallowing iron. “I work with the Senary. I used to . . . I used to be human. I’m not what you think I am.”

“You stink of them.” Her lip curled in a snarl.

He nodded again, every muscle in his body screaming. “Because I’m one of them. Yet I’m not.”

Brilliant. Maybe a few of those bony shards made their way into his brain after all.

She flipped the sword deftly and held it in a two-handed grip, the sin qua non of impending decapitation. Her dark eyes didn’t have the cat-like gleam signature to vampires, but hate and anger bled through them anyway.

“Makes no difference to me.”

Book Review: Last Wish (Highland Magic #4) by Helen Harper

Last Wish (Highland Magic #4)
by Helen Harper
December 1st 2016
Kindle Edition, 171 pages
It's not easy pretending to be dead - especially when it feels as if you have the weight of the world on your shoulders. Between an unfulfilled prophecy, the demon-occupied Lowlands, the continuing power of murderous Aifric Moncrieffe - not to mention her constant yearnings for Byron - Integrity Adair has a lot to worry about.

Still, how hard can it really be to save Scotland, maintain her morals, get the guy and keep her sense of humour?

This is the fourth and final book in the Highland Magic series.

Last Wish marks the final adventure for Integrity Adair and her troupe of clanless. I have absolutely adored this series from start to finish and have thoroughly enjoyed the ride. While I regret the story has ended, I’m ultimately satisfied. I’d rather a series end slightly prematurely than die a slow death. It’s difficult to write a review for a series finale. The feelings are mixed with inevitable letdown. Ultimately, dear readers, I want you to read this series from the start. And so, I won’t reveal overmuch.

Integrity has faked her death and must maintain the ruse. As chieftain, she faces a seemingly impossible situation. Hunted by lowland occupying Fomori demons and devious defacto fae king Aifric Moncrieffe, Integrity must stay "dead" until she can devise a plan to secure the safety of her clan and all of Scotland.

Once again, Integrity proves to be a clever risk-taker and wholly entertaining heroine. The cast of characters is complementary, most notably Bob the genie. Helen deftly weaves action, suspense, humour, and romance in her Highland Magic series. The plot is non-stop intense and rarely predictable. The series is not reliant on the romantic tension between Integrity and Byron, however, it undoubtedly adds appeal. Call me a borderline perv, but I, for one, would’ve immensely appreciated a greater ‘fleshing’ out of the romance, however, I realize this wasn’t the ‘thrust’ of the novel. Pardon my puns, they’re for Integrity.

So long Integrity, Highland Magic was truly magical.

Alpha Male Diner's Special: A Southern Man—or Two (Twelve Spirits of Christmas book tour) + giveaway

Cookin’ Up a Southern Man—or Two
By Kathryn M. Hearst
Twelve Spirits of Christmas (Tessa Lamar Novels Book Two)


One Blue-Eyed Detective
· “You-know-I’m-Trouble” grin
· Eyes the color of the Caribbean Sea
· A butt made for a pair of jeans
· Tall, lean, and ready to get it done

One Nunnehi Bodyguard – (Nunnehi is a Cherokee Fae for you Northern Folks)
· Chiseled features
· Muscles to die for
· Dark soulful eyes
· Hair long enough to wrap around your hands

1. Marinade the Nunnehi for a century or two, until he’s confident, comfortable in his sexuality, fiercely loyal, and has enough patience to deal with even the most frustrating heroine.

2. Shape the detective by giving him a Southern momma to teach him manners and how to treat a woman, and a father to show him what it means to be a man. Pound the detective with the loss of his parents, long hours at the office, and a magical attack that leaves him fighting for his life.

3. Mix a cup of Nunnehi magic with the detective until the two men are linked. Allow enough time for male bonding.

4. Test the strength of their connection by introducing a woman, and stir the pot until they’re mixed-up.

5. Top with enough danger to weigh them down.

6. Broil until any insecurities, doubts, or inhibitions are gone, and they’re ready to love a strong woman.

Taste Test:
Aaron sat beside me. “I know what you’re thinking. It’s an entirely different situation with you and Darlene.”

“How in the hell did you know that’s what I was thinking?”

They laughed and pulled me from my chair. Aaron grinned like he knew the punchline, but didn’t share. I looked between them and for once didn’t feel like they’d ganged up on me. When we weren’t trying, the relationship eased into a yoga pants and T-shirt kind of comfortable.

Bryson wrapped his arm around my shoulder. “We know how you think.”

I poked his side. “Keep telling yourselves that.”

Aaron rubbed the back of his neck. “I should get going. It’s late.”

“Stay.” I glanced between them, holding my breath. The word hung in the air like a smoke ring.

“I’m good with that,” Bryson said.

“I could stay. I’m off tomorrow unless they call me in.” He shrugged.

“Good. We’re decorating Christmas trees before Mae has a fit. Everything is running late this year.” I smiled, knowing that adding Aaron to the mix meant we could finish in half the time.

Aaron asked, “Has she forgiven you for Thanksgiving?”

“Not exactly.”

Bryson shook me playfully and spoke with his lips against my temple. “Babe, you need to mend fences with Darlene.”

“She stopped by this morning. The fences are in the wood chipper.” With everything hanging over my head, I had my choice of issues to worry over. I glanced between the men and bit my lower lip. “Are we ready for bed?”

They both eyed me, but Bryson broke the silence. “We should talk about this first, make sure we’re on the same page. Tessa, I’m certain you have questions.”

Between Bryson’s arm around my shoulder and Aaron holding my hand, I’d settled into the idea of the three of us. Any discussion on the matter now would feel like greasing the tracks and threaten to derail us. “What did you mean, exactly, when you said Aaron and I should explore?”

“It means that I don’t have a problem with the two of you getting physical.” He nodded to Aaron. “He and I talked about this while you were out after the accident. We’re good with sharing, if you are.”

“In whatever way you’re comfortable.” Aaron watched my reaction as if questioning a suspect.

“Sharing. Does that mean you each get alone time, or will it always be together?” I turned to Bryson. “We’ve been sharing a bed. Will that continue?”

“As long as you’re comfortable with it, yes.” He nodded. “I don’t have a problem with you staying with Aaron, or him staying here with us, when he isn’t working like a madman.”

Bryson met my gaze. “We’ll take things slow, talk about what worked and what didn’t, and put our relationships first.”

“I can do that.” I smiled, though doubt hovered on the edge of my conscience.

Bryson leaned in and gave me a hell of a kiss. He pulled back and watched me through half-lidded eyes.

I turned to Aaron, who wore the same hazy expression.

“Agreed.” Aaron brushed his lips across mine twice before teasing my lips apart with his tongue.

Bryson slid his hand down my side. I wanted this, wanted them, both of them. We’d slide down the long oily road to Hell in vinyl suits together.
