Blurb/Synopsis:

Jordan Erichsohn suspects something is rotten about his boss, Judge Crawford. Unfortunately he has nowhere to turn and doubts anyone will believe his claims—least of all the handsome deputy, Pierre Ravelle, who has been assigned to protect the judge receiving the threatening letters. The judge has a long reach, and if he finds out Jordan’s turned on him, he might impede Jordan adopting his son, Jeremiah.

When Jordan can no longer stay silent, he gathers his courage and tells Pierre what he knows. To his surprise and relief, Pierre believes him, and Jordan finds an ally… and maybe more. Pierre vows to do what it takes to protect Jordan and Jeremiah and see justice done. He’s willing to fight for the man he’s growing to love and the family he’s starting to think of as his own. But Crawford is a powerful and dangerous enemy, and he’s not above ripping apart everything Jordan and Pierre are trying to build in order to save himself….

Will their fledgling romance dissipate like fog in the sun before it has a chance to burn bright?

Excerpt:

The last place Jordan wanted to be was sitting at his desk outside Judge Crawford’s chambers, but there he was. He’d taken Jeremiah to his mom’s and kissed his still-warm forehead before leaving. His fever had spiked once during the night, and then he’d thankfully cooled off after a little while and slept through the rest of the night. This morning he’d said he was hungry, so that was a good sign. Still, Jordan would rather be with Jeremiah than here. But there was no way he could do anything out of the ordinary. There was way too much at stake.
“How’s Jeremiah?” Pierre asked as he came in, causing Jordan to jump nearly a mile.
He took a deep breath to try to cover it. “He’s doing better.” Jordan smiled and looked up from the file he was printing. He needed to make sure everything was set and on his desk for the day. Jordan’s fingers shook a little as he typed, and he glanced over at Pierre. “Shouldn’t you check out the room and make sure everything is safe… or something?” God, all he wanted was for Pierre to not be standing there looking at him or he’d start to sweat. First, because Pierre was hot as hell and just looking at him sent ripples of heat racing up and down his spine. Secondly, he liked Pierre. He was a nice guy who had come to his rescue last night, taking him and Jeremiah to the hospital and making sure they were okay. But third, he was freaking out, and that trumped everything.
Jordan wasn’t sure who he could trust. He needed this job, and he needed to not rock the boat so he could get Judge Taylor to finalize Jeremiah’s adoption. Nothing else mattered other than making sure the little boy who had taken up residency in his heart and home got to stay there.
“There’s no need to be nervous or anything,” Pierre said, watching him intently.
“I’m….” Jordan pushed back his chair. “Hell, I don’t know what’s going on, okay? I just need to get this done before the judge gets in. I don’t know anything, and I’m not involved in anything.” God, he had suddenly become infected with a case of verbal diarrhea. He needed to shut the hell up and get back to work.
Heavy footsteps sounded outside the door, and Jordan returned his attention to his computer and printed the last of the case documents. Somehow he managed to get the documents together and on his desk just as the judge walked in.

"...I’m here because I need to be..." #SexySnippets from Blood Secrets


It's Sunday so it's time for a Sexy Snippet. Today's 7 sentences are taken from  Blood Secrets (Blood Series: Book Two). 

This snippet carries on from last weeks, which you can read here.


~ * ~
Italy was hot even in October—the first thing I had noticed once I’d landed, but it hadn’t bothered me until this very moment. Right now, it felt like a fire had been lit under my skin, the sensation not helped by the sharp pinch of my Wolf digging his claws in my gut or the
insane urge I suddenly had to bite the graceful curve of her nape, to mark her. An urge that had my stomach in knots, and although part of me knew I needed to step back, I couldn’t move, couldn’t stop touching her.
She’s here. She’s fine. Everything is fine. Get your shit together already.
“I told you it wasn’t time for me to leave you.”
She rolled her eyes. “Yeah, well, I wouldn’t trust everything my grandmother says. Not anymore.”
“Hey?” I cupped her cheek. “I’m not here simply because Sofia wanted me to be. I’m here because I need to be, and because I want to be."

Blood Secrets

Blood Series: Book Two



Blurb:

When your life is messed up to begin with, how much worse can it really get?

Heather Ryan's life has never been simple. The latest in a long line of descendants who have made it their mission to hunt down and slay the Ancient Vampire, Marko Pavel, she is also the first born Infected. Up until recently, the biggest downside to living with the Vampyrric Virus was simply that she craved blood, but after receiving a DVD from her deceased Grandmother Sofia and being kidnapped with friend and so called guardian Werewolf, Brendan Daniels, she quickly discovers that she is also the inspiration behind the Vampires’ attempt to create a whole new breed of super monsters—Hybrids.

The truth comes at a cost, but how much does one have to sacrifice to gain success?

Following the breadcrumbs left by her psychic Grandmother, Heather and Brendan find themselves in new territory. Venice is where Heather hopes to find Marie, the second Bloodling of Marko, along with Brendan's three taken Pack members. But an old Peace Pact between the Italian Pack and the Colony means they are left hunting blind, and due to the Italian Alpha's reluctance to believe their story of kidnap and experimentation on Loup-Garous, time is running out. So when help comes from an unlikely source, they have no choice but to accept.

All families have secrets, but blood can't lie.



Caught up in an intricate and complicated scheme spun by the one she trusts the most and the friend of her enemy, Heather soon discovers that she is the pawn in a plan she would never have been able to conceive. But how many of her new allies were in on the game, to begin with?


This title contains explicit language, violence, and some scenes of a sexual nature.
