Reckoning with the past
just might destroy Grady and Dawson’s plans for the future

Blurb

Three deadly accidents that might have been magical
murder. A dark witch with a grudge against the King family. Federal agents with supernatural
abilities. And, as usual, Dawson and Grady are smack dab in the crosshairs of trouble even
they can’t outrun.

When Grady King’s brother Knox is targeted by shady
characters, old secrets, coverups, and lies come to light. Grady and his boyfriend Dawson
begin to question what really happened when Grady’s grandparents and Dawson’s parents
died. Then agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Supernatural Investigation show up
pursuing a different case, only to discover that the crimes appear to be connected, with a
vengeful dark witch at the center of the plot. And since monsters never sleep, Grady and
Dawson are still carrying out their duty to hunt dangerous paranormal creatures, restless
spirits, nefarious faeries, Civil War ghosts, creepy cryptids, and things that go bump in the
night. It’s all part of the centuries-old King family mandate to protect the people of
Cunanoon Mountain and Transylvania County, a mission Grady and Dawson are sworn to
fulfill.

But when it looks like something is hunting the people
Grady loves, it’s time to dig into the family’s painful past, uncovering dangerous details of
long-ago hunts against immortal creatures who never forget—or forgive.

Can they solve the mystery and figure out who’s behind the
deaths, or will they bear the deadly consequences of their hidden history? Reckoning with
the past just might destroy Grady and Dawson’s plans for the future and set loose a tide of
malicious magic that could sweep them all away.

Sins of the Fathers is a thrill-packed MM romance
adventure full of fast cars, outlaw country boys, snarky werewolves, vengeful ghosts,
menacing monsters, and a love that can’t be denied.

Excerpt from Sins of the Fathers

Dawson’s heart went out to Jason, worried about his long-time
partner without news of how he was doing and now afraid of being left alone.

“Lily sent us here to talk.” Grady tag teamed. “She knew you’d
be upset. She also knew how much you two loved each other.”

Lily Franklin was the long-time Meals on Wheels volunteer who
had delivered to Jason and Everett for many years. She’d become a good friend and was
Everett’s emergency contact once Jason passed away.

A door slammed. Grady’s head snapped up, and he shot a
questioning look at Dawson. Dawson reached out to take his hand, intertwining their fingers
and holding their hands in the air.

“We’re like you and Everett. We understand wanting to stay
together.” Dawson picked up the conversation.

The planchette trembled before beginning to move. “D-A-N-G-
E-R-O-U-S,” Dawson said as the pointer moved.

“Dangerous to admit what you and Jason were to each other?”
Grady asked.

The planchette moved to “YES.”

“It can be, but plenty of people are ‘out’ these days. Even
married,” Dawson answered.

A framed photo rocked back and forth on the mantle. Dawson
saw that it showed two men in their thirties decades ago on a sunny day, grinning with arms
slung over each other’s shoulders.

“If Everett can’t come home, do you think you could go to
him?” Grady asked.

The planchette went wild, circling “YES” over and over.

“Is there something here that means a lot to you that you
could ‘travel’ with if we took it to Everett?” Dawson looked around, wondering what objects
among the collections of a shared lifetime might be special enough to anchor a ghost.

A crash sounded from the back of the house. They headed
toward the noise and found the door to a bedroom open and a painting on the floor in a
broken frame. As soon as Dawson entered, he was shoved by invisible hands sending him
stumbling toward one side of an unmade king-size bed.

He nearly fell, and when he braced himself against the edge of
the mattress, he saw a leather jewelry tray on the nightstand, and in it, two silver military
rings.

“These?” Dawson felt a puff of cold air in response.

“What are they?’ Grady stood in the doorway, respecting the
privacy of the old man who had lived there.

“Army service rings. Vietnam, if I’m right.” Dawson picked up
the rings and looked at them in the light.

“Lily said they met when Everett was a nurse at the VA
hospital, and Jason came home wounded from the war,” Grady replied.

Dawson’s gaze went to a photo of a younger version of the two
men standing together in uniform. They were circumspect in their pose, but Dawson
imagined that he could see a slight lean, a bit less space between them than usual, and
broad grins.

That could have been Grady and me if we’d been born
then. I’m glad they found each other and were happy.

Blurb

Fast cars. Outlaw country boys. Snarky werewolves,
vengeful ghosts, and menacing monsters.

Dawson King’s family has been hunting things that go bump
in the night in Transylvania County, North Carolina, since before the Revolutionary
War.

Dawson was never happier than when he was racing his
souped-up Mustang along winding mountain roads and hunting monsters with his best
friend, Grady. Then Grady fell in love with him, which should have been perfect since
Dawson had already fallen hard for Grady.

But Grady was only seventeen, and Dawson feared that
sooner or later, Grady would realize his feelings were just a first crush, and then he’d be
gone, leaving Dawson devastated. They both needed space to figure things out. So Dawson
joined the army, while Grady stayed on the mountain.

Four years later, Dawson is coming home. He’s more sure
than ever Grady is his forever love, and they’ve both agreed to begin this new aspect of their
relationship as soon as Dawson gets back.

Then Grady’s father is killed in a werewolf hunt gone
wrong. Grady is devastated, and he’s throwing mixed signals about moving forward. Dawson
knows he needs to hold off on this new thing between them until Grady has time to grieve.
But monsters never sleep, and one hunt after another throws Dawson and Grady into
constant danger, while tension and unresolved feelings ripple between them.

Making it even harder, Dawson’s got a secret. He’s dreamed
of death omens—which point to something stalking Grady. Can Dawson figure out who’s
trying to kill Grady, save his life, and win back his heart?

Plenty of mutual pining, hurt/comfort, spooky chills,
sexy thrills, and a very happy ending. The Kings of the Mountain is the first novel in the
series. It is a MM romance intended for readers 18 years of age and older.

Excerpt from Kings of the Mountain

The longer they spent time on the road and on hunts together, the more Dawson felt a
powerful attraction to Grady. He’d always been fond of the younger man, but Dawson found
himself admiring the person Grady was growing into. Grady deserved to find the right
guy—if that’s what he wanted—who could make him happy. And as much as Dawson wished
fervently that could be him, he knew he couldn’t take the chance that Grady might feel
pressured or obligated to respond if Dawson made any advances.

Not to mention how Grady’s mother had always carried on about how awful it was to marry
a “cousin,” something that she claimed no one in her family had ever done.
She’d made her position loud and clear while she was married to Aaron, which had not
endeared her to the rest of the community. Such marriages were legal in North Carolina, and
not uncommon in the rural areas.

The fact that Grady wasn’t a cousin by blood probably wouldn’t matter to Camille. But what
if Grady had accepted his mother’s bias? Maybe Dawson had imagined the flirtation, or
worse, projected his own feelings onto the other man. So Dawson took the edge off with
hookups and out-of-town one-night stands, very aware that he tended to choose partners
with a resemblance to Grady.

Until he couldn’t stand it any longer.

That’s when Dawson enlisted.

Once they were on the main highway, Dawson turned to watch Colt’s profile.

“So…what happened with Uncle Denny and Grady?”

Colt’s grip on the steering wheel tightened, and the tic in his jaw told Dawson that the other
man didn’t want to have this conversation. “They’re both alive. But a hunt went wrong a
week ago, and Grady isn’t dealing with it very well.”

A week, Dawson thought. That was when he’d stopped getting emails from
Grady. He had tried to convince himself the silence was due to any number of impersonal
reasons, but Dawson knew in his gut something wasn’t right. His responses from Uncle
Denny had gotten short and less frequent around the same time.

Was this what his nightmare had been warning him about?

“Could you be a little clearer?” Dawson knew Colt could read the warning in his tone.

“Grady got hurt. Aaron was killed. Grady’s not dealing well with it. Uncle Denny didn’t want
to leave Grady alone. So they sent me.”

Dawson’s head swam. Uncle Aaron, dead? That’s hard to even imagine. He was always
so full of life. And Grady—it’s got to be bad if he couldn’t come. Oh, God. I almost lost him.
Plus there’s something Colt isn’t saying, something even worse. Because if Uncle Aaron died
on a hunt, then Grady had to have been right there when it happened. That’s bad, really
bad. No one should see their parent die, especially not like that.

Silas Mercer died once. He’d rather not do it again.

On his return to the world of the living, Silas finds himself in

tricks.

When the Order partners him with the scandalous rake,

Now, the increasingly unstable Blight is causing new havoc,
and fresh monstrosities are emerging.

Pitch and Sickle are back in the saddle, and on their way to
the haunted Forest of Dean.

Blurb

The Lady’s Horsemen are riding out once more. Carrying
death’s scythe to where tormented souls linger.

But what awaits them in a world where divine magick has
returned?

Pitch is recovered from the injuries he received in the
Forest of Dean, and Silas won’t soon forget the part he played in setting his guardian back on
his feet.

The ankou and the daemon have been reunited in a most
unexpected and intimate way, but barely have they caught their breath when a new threat
arises.

A tortured spirit is frightening both the living and the dead
along the roads of Devon.

But is this soul a monster that must be stopped, or another
pawn in the necromancer’s mysterious game?

With Azazel’s magick re-emerging after hundreds of years,
maleficium plagues the world once more. But who is wielding the forbidden arcane magick
of the angels?

Do they work alone?

And why are they so intent on harassing the Lady’s
Horsemen?

Silas has never felt stronger, or more determined to live up
to the Order’s high expectations. He’s faced the walking dead, outwitted the enchanted Hall,
and gained an ally in the skriker.

But he’s not sure he’s equipped to handle his growing
attraction to a troubled daemon.

And Silas fears that getting any closer to Pitch and his tragic
secrets may prove as dangerous as the monsters they are riding to face.

 

Excerpt from ‘The Bandalore-Pitch & Sickle Book One’

A rather pretty gentleman, sharp featured, pale and fine,
stepped into the room with a flourish of raised hands. His tousled light brown hair was wild
about his shoulders, and his eyes so green it was as though emeralds had been pressed into
the sockets. ‘Let the amusements begin…or should I say…continue.’

His velvet coat, a red almost as bold as the woman’s lips,
was unbuttoned, revealing a black shirt with a silver brocade of Chinese dragons upon it. An
elaborate ruffling of silk tumbled from the collar and covered a good portion of his chest. His
choice of trousers was equally curious, a rather outdated fall-front style in black silk.

The baron groaned, but his smile was ever-present. ‘Good
god, man, we thought you two would never be done.’

‘Perfection takes time, does it not?’

‘Take your seat, you rascal, and stop your showmanship, at
least just for a moment.’

Silas scratched his right palm absently, attempting to stymie
the prickle. Like many things about himself he wasn’t certain of his age, his late twenties was
likely, much the same as the man who had just swept into the room.

Mr Astaroth tilted his head, pursing lips that held a near-
perfect Cupid’s bow. ‘Am I to stand aside so another showman can perform?’

‘Exactly,’ the baron declared.

As Mr Astaroth made his way to his seat with his
companion, he had a notable effect on those in attendance. The ladies all at once seemed
incapable of deciding how they should adjust their gowns upon their seats, and the men
were equally as fidgety. All of them were fixated on Mr Astaroth’s procession across the
room. The man had not spared Silas a glance yet, even when he was deriding him, and Silas
had no issue with that at all. He was not sure he’d enjoy the pierce of those green eyes upon
him. But he could not deny there was indeed something mesmerising about the lad, the
sway of his hips, the coiled tension in his body that gave the impression he might suddenly
leap unannounced in any direction.

Mr Astaroth stopped to take a glass of champagne from the
tray offered by a somewhat flustered young footman. The liquid wobbled in its crystal
confines, and the boy’s eyes darted so quickly between the floor and the man before him, it
was as though he’d lost control of his eyeballs.

‘Thank you, kind sir. What a wonderful job you do.’ Mr
Astaroth’s smile was discomfortingly suggestive, his whispered appreciation of the boy’s
offering far too intimate, and the serving boy nearly stumbled over his own feet to move
away.

Mr Astaroth was slender, not remarkable in height, and the
angles of his face were delicate to the point of being feminine, but he held a presence that
quite overwhelmed the room. Silas’s gaze moved down the length of the man’s body to his
feet. He wore heeled boots, which meant he was shorter than first impressions allowed. The
glean of polished leather distracted Silas from what became startlingly obvious a moment
later. He tensed and closed his eyes a second, as though that might change things. But alas it
was not to be.

The ground at Tobias Astaroth’s feet held no
shadow.

Whoever this man was, he was not, for all intents and
purposes, human. Silas took hold of the arms of the chair, filled with the sudden desire to
depart. No one had thought to instruct him on an encounter such as this.

‘Stop frightening the help and get your arse on a chair,’
declared the bespectacled man at Silas’s left. ‘We know how you hate to have attention
diverted from you, so do try and behave, Pitch old boy.’

Evidently the group knew the man well enough to have
endowed him with a nickname. Silas could only imagine its origins.

‘Oh Brenton,’ Victoria, Mr Astaroth’s companion, said. ‘As
far as I’m concerned, Tobias has been on his best behaviour all evening.’ She had taken her
seat and leaned her elbows upon the table, utterly at ease.

‘Thank you, my dear,’ Mr Astaroth said. ‘You are as sensible
as you are extremely talented in the art of, what were we calling it? Tarot reading.’ He tilted
his glass towards her before turning to Silas. The air quite vanished from Silas’s lungs
beneath the daggers of his emerald stare. ‘How very nice to make your acquaintance, Mr
Mercer. I do hope we are in for a wonderful show.’

The Fulbourn – Pitch & Sickle Book Five:
The Diabolus Chronicles

When the King of
Daemonkind comes to call, be ready for hell to follow.

 

After Lucifer’s disturbing visit, the quest to destroy the Blight takes on a desperate urgency.

Finding Lieutenant Edward Charters is paramount.

But what role does a mortal man play in Seraphiel’s dangerous game?

The angel has sent Pitch a talisman from beyond the grave, a seemingly innocuous watch
that may be the key to ending the Watcher King’s dark legacy. But to learn its secret Pitch
and Silas must find the man intended to carry it.

As the search for the lieutenant begins, the Horsemen find themselves gifted with
something more precious than any angelic token. An evening of unexpected freedom.
A night that will deepen their intimacy and bring long-stifled feelings to the fore.

But what price will they pay for choosing breathless pleasure over rigid duty?

The Morrigan have not forgiven the destruction at the greensward. They are prepared to do
whatever it takes to rid themselves of the Horsemen and heed the Watcher King’s ghostly
call.

The Fulbourn is Pitch and Silas’s greatest threat yet.
A place that will drive them into the depths of their most terrible fears and seek to tear
them apart.

They are closer than ever before but will that fragile new bond be
enough to save them?
Or have the daemon prince and his ankou found the nemesis that will destroy them once
and for all?

The Diabolus Chronicles is a slow-burn MM Gaslamp
Fantasy series that contains on-page sex scenes, gore and violence, and rather a lot of
cursing.

This is the fifth book in the on-going series.

RV’s summer after sophomore year of high school
isn’t all fun and games as he navigates a budding new relationship, struggles with driving
lessons, copes with the ups and downs of his summer job in a movie theatre, and tries to be
patient with his traditional family that doesn’t want to deal with his sexuality.

Blurb

It’s the summer after sophomore year and RV enjoys new
adventures and faces new challenges having finished two years of high school. Since he
loves movies, he’s happy to get a job as an usher at a movie multiplex, but learns the
realities of dealing with job stresses and unruly customers. It’s time for him to start learning
how to drive, and his father is eager to give him lessons. But he’s not the most patient of
teachers and RV is not the most capable of drivers. Bobby is still around, but he’s doing the
hard job of recovering from his injury so doesn’t have time for much else. RV tries to open
himself up to a new relationship and is happy when he meets Matteo, who works at the
multiplex also. It looks like the start of a budding romance – until it isn’t. And then there is
RV’s family, loving but traditional, not ready or willing to discuss issues of sexuality. Luckily,
as always, there is Mr. Aniso, RV’s freshmen-year teacher, who has become a friend and is
always there to talk over anything that might be bothering RV. But he’s away for the summer,
helping his partner’s family, so there’s only so much time and attention he can give RV.

He was supposed to be safe.

Captain Keyno Landium Shou is a Tah’Narian starship
captain who has been granted the right to take a mate, any mate, he wants during the last
harvest on Earth. Dale was seventeen when the aliens first appeared. His parents assumed
he’d be safe since the final collection would be done before he turned twenty-three. He
didn’t fall within the guidelines established, so they took for granted he had nothing to
fear.


They were wrong.

 

Excerpt from The Harvest: Taken

I was seventeen when the aliens first appeared, so my parents
assumed I was safe. The final collection would occur before I turned twenty-three. I didn’t
fall within the guidelines the aliens had established, so I thought I had nothing to fear.

I was wrong.

Exactly one week before my twenty-third birthday, an
extraction team showed up to collect me. My parents were distraught, and I fought them,
but nothing stopped them from taking me. Somebody somewhere had made a terrible
mistake. But no one would listen to me.

“I’m not supposed to be collected!” Men in SWAT gear
dragged me to a waiting van. One of the aliens stood off to the side, watching. I dug my feet
into the ground, trying to halt the parade of their progress. Two human soldiers were beside
me, trying to secure my arms behind my back, but I kept twisting and jerking, frantic to
break their hold on me. “Listen to me! I’m only twenty-two years old.”

“Son of a bitch, stop jumping around, you little fag,” the man to
the right of me hissed as he grabbed at my wrist and twisted.

“Fuck!” I yelled as pain radiated up my arm. I managed to get
my other arm free long enough to get in a good solid shot at the asshole who was currently
trying to twist my hand off. I busted his nose. Anger boiled in his eyes as he whipped his arm
back to strike me.

Before the blow could land, the Tah’Narian with the extraction
team jerked the man away from me by the front of his shirt. Another human took his team
member’s place immediately, but my focus was on the alien, not the other man holding my
arm.

The alien lifted the human completely off the ground and
shook him like a rag doll, snapping his head back and forth. The Tah’Narian’s low growls sent
shivers up my spine as he spoke to the team member. And his strength was astounding. The
man the alien lifted wasn’t a small guy, by any means, and he lifted him with one hand. Then
he tossed the guy to the ground, pointed at me and babbled something I couldn’t
understand.

“I… I… okay. I won’t touch him again.” The team member
stumbled back to the van, never looking back at me.

Good God, the extraction team and that alien could somehow
understand each other. Momentarily distracted, I didn’t have time to react when another
team member handcuffed both my arms tightly behind me. Someone on each side held me
tightly, determined to march me to that waiting van.

“Let go of me, dammit!”

“Stop fighting, kid. You can’t win against five of us.” The new
guard fastened a second set of cuffs higher on my forearms. “Plus there’s that alien, too. You
just saw his strength. The more you fight, the harder this is going to be.”

I slumped in their arms, the fight draining out of me. “What did
it say?”

“Basically, that you’ve been chosen by one of them,” one of the
guys from the team leaned down and whispered to me. “I’m sorry, kid. Never heard of
something like this happening. No more talking, or they’ll gag you next.”

Horrified, I hung in their arms as they dragged me to a waiting
van. I desperately wanted to ask him what he meant about being chosen, but after his
warning, I was afraid to say anything. What the hell was going on, and why were the rules
being changed all of a sudden? These aliens weren’t supposed to be able to pick and choose.
That defeated the whole purpose of having a lottery system.

Adapting is a word Dale Michaels has become familiar with.
As he settles into his new life with the Tah’Narian starship captain Keyno, Dale has adapted
to life with an alien, space travel, and having his body mutated so he can carry a young. He’s
closed the chapter on his old life.


Living on Tah’Nar, Dale has a loving mate and good
friends. He’s helped cement peace with the Onfre. Sure, being double-dosed during his
harvest led to some serious drama, but that’s over. Dale’s happy.


But life is never that simple.

Even though Dale loves Keyno, he still struggles
with the way the Tah’Narians harvest young males as mates. Dale finds himself hijacked by
his own body, courtesy of his extra dose of Tah’Narian DNA. Then there’s the devastating
secret his mate, Keyno, has hid all this time. And if all that isn’t enough, outside forces
threaten to rip Dale’s hard-won peace apart as well.


Join Dale for a non-stop adventure and a love that

Half human and half Tah’Narian, Szin doesn’t fit with either
race. His appearance is mainly human, but he’s able to have a young. Unfortunately, that’s
his only Tah’Narian characteristic. He’s smaller and weaker than other young.


Szin’s eighteenth birthday has passed and time’s
running out. He has to stop his childhood friend, Takeo, from making the worst mistake of
his life: claiming Szin as a mate. Takeo deserves an equal who’s as fierce as he is, something
Szin most certainly is not.


Since before Takeo was born, he’s known Szin was
his. Nothing and no one, not even Szin, is going to stand in the way of claiming his mate. He
understands Szin feels he isn’t good enough, and he’ll do anything to convince Szin
otherwise. Including taking drastic measures to ensure his mate listens.


Takeo is the ultimate blend of human, Tah’Narian,
and Onfrevian DNA. He’s pure predator, and his sights are set on his mate.

A brief moment in time can change
everything.


Laken Fihk has no idea his destiny waits for him on
the
Unity, a Tah’Narian starship. But all it takes is one look at the incapacitated male, and Laken
knows that’s his fated mate. Which is a problem, because the severely beaten, bloody, and
unconscious male is the Blishue warrior named Torin. The species is considered sadistic,
cruel, and without mercy—bloodthirsty monsters who kill without regard.


No one, absolutely no one, is going to be happy if
Laken claims Torin as his.


Torin, member of the Blishue House of Dorntok,
has found his mate and nothing will stop him from claiming Laken. So what if he has
Tah’Narians doubting his honor, Ne Reynians wanting to kill him, and a battle brewing that
could jeopardize all he holds dear? War has bound them together, and nothing can break
them apart. He and Laken will overcome all obstacles to find a love that could last a lifetime.
No matter what.


Destiny doesn’t make mistakes.

Eric Rawlins has made the people of England a promise.
That he will stand for them against Ivan Williams and the L.S.A, but with politics and agendas
threatening to dictate his every move, Eric struggles to find allies that he can trust.

When a daring mission to rescue Adam’s staff goes awry,
Eric finds that he is starting to question himself in ways that shake him to the very core.

own demons.

As the pressure begins to build, Eric takes the fight to
Williams. However, Adam’s dangerous obsession with revenge threatens to not only put the
entire operation in jeopardy, but his relationship with Eric too.

 

Excerpt from Broken World

Adam moved as soon as the L.S.A agents did. He slammed into
Elle and knocked her to the ground. As the gunfire started, Adam kept her covered with his
own body. Beneath him her screams were barely audible over the shooting. It was not just
coming from the White Tower, but from the opposite direction where the barracks had been
located.

Then he felt a hand on his arm. Glancing up he was relieved to
see Eric leaning down over them. Adam reacted immediately. He got to his feet and dragging
Elle up with him, Adam pushed her into Eric’s arms.

“Go!” he snapped when he saw how Eric hesitated. “I’ll be
right behind you!”

Lifting Elle up off the ground, Eric started to run back towards
the bridge and Perses. The gunfire began to fade into the background as the L.S.A seemed to
now be concentrating on whoever it was who had started shooting at them.

They had passed the ruins of the Bell Tower when it happened.
Adam felt something crash into him, and he was thrown back into the masonry. Pain
exploded from his left shoulder and travelled all the way down his arm.

“Eric!” he tried to shout, but the pain had robbed his voice of
its strength and his boyfriend’s name came out as a choked whisper.

“I’m afraid he’s long gone,” Neil’s sneering figure appeared in
Adam’s line of vision. “It’s just you and me!”

Neil reached down and dragged Adam back to his feet by his
good arm. He looked battered and almost deranged. Neil’s nose was still bleeding and when
he spoke Adam could see blood staining his teeth red. His eyes were wild and one of his
pupils was enlarged. There was blood in his hair, matting the blond against his head. Still
despite all this, he seemed supercharged with his fury. All of it was directed at Adam.

“Dad’s going to be pretty pissed off about this mess!” Neil
snarled as he started to pull Adam back towards where Traitor’s Gate had once stood. “But
maybe if I bring him you, he will be more inclined to look passed all of this!”

Adam tried to dig his heels into the ground, to make it as
difficult for Neil as possible but his struggles barely seemed to make a difference.

“Eric!” he croaked into his radio. As soon as he spoke, Neil
lunged forwards and ripped it from his ear. Suddenly free, Adam drew back whilst his
uninjured hand went for his gun. Neil was on him before he could raise the weapon. He
struck Adam hard around the side of the head. Pain blossomed from the impact as he once
more fell to the ground. The cry that escaped Adam as he landed amused Neil. His snarl
twisted into a sadistic grin as he once more hauled Adam back to his feet. For a few seconds,
the pain forced Adam let himself be dragged through the former Traitor’s Gate site and
towards the river.

If he gets me back into south London, then it’s all
over…

Adam renewed his struggling. He could not move his left arm
and Neil still had hold of his right, so he quickly changed tactics. Using his momentum to
push himself closer to the other man, Adam brought his knee up between Neil’s legs with as
much force as he could muster. Neil yelled angrily, but he did not let Adam go as he doubled
over. His action jerked Adam off his feet, and he would have fallen had Neil not kept his hold
on his arm.

“You’re going to fucking pay for that!” Neil screamed furiously
as he slammed Adam against the metal railings that cordoned off the Thames from the
Tower of London site. One hand still held Adam firmly in place whilst the other closed
around his throat.

Adam gasped. Pinned between Neil’s body and the railing, he
was unable to move more than a token struggle. He tried to pull his arm free, but with the
pressure on his neck increasing Adam was finding it impossible to breathe. Neil loomed over
him, and he was close enough that Adam could see the red lines streaking through the
whites of his eyes. He was not trying to kill Adam, just force him into unconsciousness. This
thought gave him little comfort. If he was taken back to the L.S.A headquarters, then he
would be dead by the end of the day.

Adam’s vision was starting to blur, and he had stopped fighting.
He could feel the cold press of the railing at his back and the metal shaking under their
combined weight.

“Neil…” Adam choked out with the last of his strength. “The
railing…”

Yet as he spoke, he felt it give way. Adam shot his arm out,
trying to reach for something – anything – to save him, but his hand closed around nothing
other than air. As he felt himself falling, Neil drew back and managed to catch his footing
right on the edge. The sight of him stumbling onto the firmer ground was the last thing
Adam saw as he hit the water. Immediately as the cold river enveloped him, Adam fought for
the surface. However, with only the use of one arm, he was unable to break his head above
the water. Feebly he tried to kick, but his already oxygen-starved lungs could not take
anymore. Adam barely had a moment to feel afraid before he blacked out.

When Kai Richter and Ori Bier met, sparks
flew.


Then a train blew up.

Tracking an organism deadly to not only humans,
but vampires and werewolves alike, brings Kai and Ori into The Vampire Guard. Decades
later, they, along with Operative Team Jack Rabbit, come face to face with the horrors that
same virus produces. Dead bodies are coming back to life, and rational people are becoming
violent and brutal killers.


A massacre is taking place nearly a mile under the
Atlantic Ocean. Two teams of The Vampire Guard are in the thick of it, fighting to
survive.

 

Excerpt from Endosymbiont

“How do werewolves fit into this grand plan?” Ori asked.
“When we first began chasing Sauer, he was collecting tissue samples and blood from
werewolves too.”

“And humans,” Kai added.

“I’ve been giving that some thought as well,” Lucas began.
“Both vampires and werewolves are more powerful than humans, but in different ways. As a
species each has slightly different skill sets than humans. A werewolf is born, unlike a
vampire. They have strong family and pack ties, so recruiting them as soldiers would likely
fail unless it was something an individual wanted to do. Getting large numbers to join up for
a cause outside a pack would be difficult, if not impossible. Yes, there might be German
packs siding with the Nazis, but there would be an equal number, or more, of packs from
other regions willing to fight on the opposing side. However, if there was a way to
incorporate werewolf attributes to enhance vampires, that would be valuable if the goal
were to create a super soldier.”

“Werewolves have, historically, fought in wars. However, as
a group they fared much better, particularly afterward. Because of their pack system,
soldiers returning from battle have a phenomenal support system. They don’t have the
homelessness and mental health problems many human soldiers do,” Ori chimed in.
“Humans are only now beginning to catch up to werewolf mental health.”

Lucas nodded. “Another desirable quality for a super
soldier. Mental and emotional stability. There’s also the possibility he was hoping to create
more than one generation of super soldiers by incorporating werewolves. I’m starting to
think this guy had a clear idea of what he wanted, but not how to achieve it.”

“And then somewhere along the way in his quest to create
some sort of super soldier, Sauer discovers an organism that can be weaponized,” Jonas
said.

“There’s a gap in the research. A jump from analyzing the
three species to what we’re dealing with now,” Lucas said. “I’m guessing the biological
weapon is still a fairly new idea. Eighty years ago there simply wasn’t the technology to
make this thing useful. However, as a group, scientists are hoarders and packrats. We never
really throw anything away.”

“And once an idea is out there, it never goes away,” Jonas
added and grinned.

“Sauer became a vampire at some point, and I bet it didn’t
take long for him to realize all he had to do was hang around and wait for technology to
catch up to his ideas,” Sophia said. “He might’ve been a horrible and evil man, but he
certainly wasn’t stupid.”

One of the computers started chirping.

“This place is annoying,” Kai grumbled.

Blair wheeled his chair away from the table to the terminal.
“It’s a heat signature. A new one.”

“From where?” Ori demanded. “How would
someone get into this place without us knowing.”

Shaking his head, Blair stared at one of the monitors,
moving the cursor around. He did something that dulled the noise. “Whoever it is, they
didn’t come from outside, they’ve been hiding. There must be pocket areas that aren’t
covered by any sensors.”

“Heat signature, so not a vampire,” Declan said.

Blair nodded. “Too high for human.” He turned to face
them. “The werewolf we couldn’t account for.” He swung back to the computer when it
began making a different noise. “Kruger is in his office, but the werewolf and a human is
heading that way.” Moving to another computer, Blair pressed a few keys on the keyboard
and the quarters Kincade and Madison occupied appeared on one of the other monitors.

Madison was sitting on the side of his bed, reading. It was
obvious by how he yawned and stretched he’d probably only recently woken up. Kincade’s
room was empty.

Blair blinked at the monitor for a few seconds before he
exclaimed, “How the
hell did he get out? The door is locked from the outside.”

“Air vents, or maintenance shafts.” Declan like the others,
was up and moving in seconds.

Porter started issuing orders. “Kai, Declan, Forge, with
Sophia.” He turned to Ori. “You stick with Blair if he has to leave this section.”

Ori nodded. “Yes, sir.”

Excerpt from book 3

“Come back inside, Cassidy,” he urged. “I don’t know why, but I don’t like the vibes I’m
getting out here tonight.”

Teags intuition is fueled by strong magic, so I take his “vibes”
seriously. I’m pretty good with both intuition and magic myself, and I felt a shiver go down
my back. “There’s something out here,” I murmured, looking down the alley toward the
streetlight at the end and seeing a dark shape in the roadway I had not noticed
before.

“That’s what I’m trying to tell you,” Teag said. “Come
back where it’s safe.”

Wardings protected the old antique shop against
dark magic. Salt and iron lay beneath the sill of every door and window to repel evil, and as
an added protection, sometimes we had a nearly six-hundred-year-old vampire staying in
the secret room in the shop basement. Teag and I both wore protective amulets, and when it
came to defending ourselves, we were no slouches. So when I lingered a moment longer, I
took a calculated risk.

“We need to see what that is,” I said, jerking my
head toward the lump that lay near the far end of the alley. I let my athame slide down
beneath my sleeve into my hand and jangled the old dog collar on my left wrist, smiling as
the ghost of a large dog appeared at my side. Teag muttered something under his breath and
joined me a moment later, carrying a wooden martial arts staff and a wicked
knife.

Together, we advanced on the shape, which lay still
in the dim glow of the distant street light. A mangy cat paced near the body, staying just out
of reach as we approached, even though Bo’s ghost growled and stepped toward it. If the cat
could see Bo, the ghost dog didn’t intimidate him. I paid attention to what my senses were
telling me, shivering at the resonance something evil left in its wake. Yet the closer we got to
the thing in the road, the more certain I became that the threat itself had come and
gone.
