Disturbed by all she’s discovered, and overwhelmed by her intense feelings for the charismatic Drew, Brooke panics and runs.

Can Drew find her before it is too late?

Excerpt:

Some clichés are used for a reason. They are used because they are so bloody true. Happily, most people don’t ever find this out. They don’t experience their whole life flashing before their eyes as a train hurtles toward them. Or feel their blood turn to frozen sludge in their very veins. Right then, I experienced my own little clichéd moment. My blood ran cold, while my heart stuttered painfully in my chest.

Somehow, I managed to speak, and my voice came out calm enough to belie my inner turmoil. “I don’t like your game. And if you don’t go, and take your friends with you, I’m calling the police.”

He sighed. “Such gratitude. I could go, but then they’d come in, and I don’t think you’d like the results very much.”

“They didn’t come in last night.” I shot back.

“Because I sat here last night, too.”

What? The very idea of someone sitting, in the dark, watching me while I slept unawares, had every single centimeter of skin bumping up as the hair rose all over my body.

“How did you get in? I locked the door.” I glared at Sandy in the dark. Useless guard dog she made.

“I have a key,” he said. “It’s been in my family for years. I sat here and guarded you. Nobody will hurt you with me here.”

His soothing, deep, dark voice once again washed over me. It almost lulled me into security, despite my better judgment.

What would he look like? My mind had been whirring away, conjuring up all sorts of terrible visions. He might be like the bald, hideous creature from those old black and white vampire movies. Or perhaps he’d be tall and darkly handsome, in a devilish way. Something out of a Gothic novel. My very own Heathcliff…which wasn’t a good thing, I’d always thought Heathcliff cruel and mad, rather than exciting and sexy. With trembling fingers, I reached out and clicked on the night-light. Not knowing seemed scarier than the reality of what I might see.

He gave a hiss and put a hand over his eyes, giving me time to take him in. Normal. My first, astonished thought was he looked normal. Large, sure. Tall. Even sitting in the chair as he was, I could tell as much. And broad. His shoulders were brawny, defined by his checkered shirt. But normal all the same. He wore faded jeans and a white T-shirt, loosely covered by the unbuttoned checked shirt. The ensemble was finished with the sort of boots construction workers favored.

“Christ. Warn a guy before you try to blind him.” He moved his hand from his face and scowled…and I stared some more.

Okay, not quite normal. Unless you count looking like you’ve dropped from heaven as normal, which I most certainly didn’t. Handsome didn’t quite cut it. Blindingly, stupendously beautiful, almost did him justice. Not devilishly handsome as I’d imagined, but a man with the face of an angel.


Release Day Review: Claimed by Desire by Skye Jones

I received an ARC for Claimed by Desire from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I should start with the caveat that shifter books are not my usual reading fare. That being said, I decided to give this one a try out of curiosity. I’ll also state that I did not read the first book in this series, but had no trouble following this standalone story.

Dylan is a wolf shifter who lost his mate two years ago. He blames himself for the death of his lover, but also his entire pack, at the hands (or maybe jaws?) of a pack of ancient and decidedly evil vampires.

Let me stop right here to mention I was looking forward to the vampire showdown from the very beginning. Skye Jones does the kind of vampires that smell like decaying flesh and will rip your throat out in the blink of an eye. Those are the kind of vampires I like, and after the whole sparkling vamps sensation came about, I honestly haven’t picked up a single vampire book. This story reminded me why I love Anne Rice and Poppy Z. Brite—because vampires can be seriously fucking good-scary.

Anyway, back to Claimed by Desire: Dylan has gone all rogue, tending a farm in the middle of bumfuck Wales. He hires a cute, (mostly) openly gay farm hand named Aeron, and proceeds to try to ignore their mutual attraction.

Aeron is a fun character. There’s some humorous dialog in here, no little thanks to Aeron’s exuberance.

As one might expect, Aeron and Dylan hem and haw a bit, but then begin a relationship that starts as fuck friends and pretty quickly morphs into something more serious, much to Dylan’s chagrin. There are a few ups and downs, including some drama related to Aeron’s sick mom (she’s suffered from MS for years and Aeron is her primary caregiver).

Just when the two MCs are falling hard for each other, the vamps return. Dylan calls in some furry friends (the MCs from the previous book being three of the considerable bunch), they buckle down for a fight, and it’s as exciting as I’d hoped.

I won’t give up the entire story, but all in all, this was a quick, enjoyable read I’m sure will be a hit with those who love shifter romance.
