IS HE WORTH SAVING IF HE WON’T EVEN SAVE HIS CHILD?
Imagine yourself pregnant by a man who has had his emotions stripped. He knows who you are, but doesn’t care if you live or die. And unfortunately, you need his blood to survive.
“Don’t pretend you care anything for this balas,” Petra said through gritted teeth.
A sudden gust of pain assaulted her then, and she shuddered and winced before reaching for the wall to steady herself. This was bad. This whole mess. He was right. The bastard. She was drooling. She wanted so desperately to control herself around him, but her body, and the balas inside her womb, knew what it wanted. And it would go to any lengths—even the humiliation of its host—to get it.
“I’ll tell you what,” Syn said in a soft, calculated voice. “You want my blood? Take it.”
Her gaze flipped up to meet his. Just the words, the suggestion, the offer, pained her.
“You do want it?” he said.
Her eyes narrowed as she glared at him, and her entire body shuddered with need. She hated the thought of blood in her mouth. But his blood . . . “Yes, I want it,” she ground out. Dammit, I crave it. I obsess over it. I lust for it.
He leaned closer, whispered, “Why do you hesitate, then?”
“Because, Mr. Wise, what I crave is toxic.” Her top lip trembled. “Despicable sludge. Poison.”
Dark brows lifted above intrigued eyes. “You speak of my blood.”
A grunt of sarcastic amusement came from her throat. “The paven’s a genius.”
“Are you in love with me, Petra?”
“What?” She recoiled. “God, no. Never!” The thought made her sick. Or was it hunger and need raging inside her that twisted her empty belly? It was so hard to decipher what emotions coincided with what situations.
“Then why does it matter to you if my blood is moralistically toxic? It’s not logical. If you need it, you take it.”
This is the premise of Eternal Sin, the 6th book in my Mark of the Vampire series. It’s an emotional, sexy, action packed book, with so much at stake. It introduces us to the new world for the mutore, the vampire/shifters; the Rainforest. A hidden world for shifters that our heroine, Petra has grown up in. Finally, Phane, Lycos and Helo will learn about where they came from.
Phane couldn’t take his eyes off the female hawk. He stood on the very top of the highest rock within the gathering stones and stared. Every member of his family that could handle sunlight—except Ly, of course, who had once again refused to come—was seated and waiting a few feet below him. Like Helo, Phane had also been curious about the Rain Forest and its creatures. After living all of his life among vampires, Phane had wanted to know about that other part of himself. The one that had never been discussed or revealed. But in all that time—hell, even back at the house in SoHo—he’d never contemplated another being like himself.
He felt his hawk scratch inside his skin as he watched the female shift from Avian form to human. In the air, gliding, swooping, touching down, she’d been magnificent.
I really hope you’ll enjoy Eternal Sin, and the new direction the series is taking!
