GENRE: Paranormal Romance
DC bustles, the light from the city fills the night. But in the dark alleys and backstreets, only slivers of light from a full moon dance. In such an alley, a shadowy figure is hunched over a body. She lifts her head to reveal soulless eyes and fangs dripping with blood as she licks her lips with exultation.
Standing up, she wipes her chin, and tosses her long black hair, then saunters away.
At FBI headquarters, Gerry examines the case files of 18 wealthy men, dead, with few clues, no DNA, and no leads...
When predator and prey become one, no one is safe.
Gerry turned, but she was there, her hands on his shoulders pushing him back hard against the hood of the Suburban.
She could smell his musky scent, and his blood, she could feel it coursing through his veins. His heart pumping thundered over the noise of the fans, pushing the precious liquid through his body. Her own desire to drink it in was near insanity. Her lips pulled back, fangs ready to sink into his flesh, her mouth brushed against his neck. The taste of his blood running down her throat would be heaven. She stopped and jerked back. She couldn’t kill him. Erin found herself questioning her actions.
What was she feeling? She didn’t believe in love. Never believed in love at first sight. Yet here she was with the perfect prey, and she wanted to know everything about him. Wanted to spend time with him, needed to be with him. The feeling she couldn’t be complete without him overwhelmed her. It was the only time in hundreds of years she didn’t kill the man she chose. She stumbled back half a step. Dazed by her own confusion.
Looking up into Gerry’s wide eyes, she saw horror and confusion reflected back at her.
“I’m sorry, I was so scared. I didn’t mean to push you back like that. It was just that I was so afraid standing there alone.” Words tumbled out of Erin’s mouth. Did he believe her? “I ran forward without even thinking.” Words were still coming.
AUTHOR Bio and Links:
I love a good paranormal read, something about the un-dead haunts the fringes of my mind. Mix in romance, love, loss, and you have a great story.
I voraciously read everything, fiction, and non-fiction but always find myself turning back to the darker stories. I’ve always wanted to write and the dream became a reality with Capital Thirst, and the remainder of the Erin Kingsly novels.
I spend most of my days designing and building websites, but my free time is devoted to my wife, family, and cats. Yes three grown children and three cats. Things can be hectic.
For fun you might find me driving winding roads with the top down or out photographing nature.
