KISS OF DARKNESS ON ROMANCENOVEL.TV!
Good Morning! Continuing to Celebrate this week a number of great things! First off Kiss of Darkness is on romancenove.tv and the review is fangtastic!
Continuing the battle of good vs. evil that began in Touch a Dark Wolf, this book is the story of Emerald Linton and Sam Sheridan, two characters who have figured prominently in the first two books of the Shadowmen series.
Six years ago, Emerald Linton and her young daughter, Megan barely escaped with their lives after Emerald’s husband succumbed to the evil infection of a Vladarian vampire bite and tried to kill them. They remained in hiding until nine months ago when a vision led them to Twilight, Tennessee – a mystical mountain town with a prevailing sense of goodness. For a woman with Emerald’s special abilities, Twilight seemed the perfect place to raise her daughter and make a stand against the evil that she knew would eventually find them. She wasn’t looking for a man to complicate matters but Emerald hadn’t counted on Sheriff Sam Sheridan. Sexual sparks flew between Sam and Emerald the first day she hit town and have only intensified since then but Sam has no intention of acting on his desire for the Irish spitfire. Plagued by nightmares and flashbacks, Sam knows his soul has been irrevocably damaged by the sadistic drug lord who held him captive and cruelly tortured him for two years. He refuses to get close to someone he could possibly hurt during a flashback to that horrific time in the Belize jungle but fate has other plans for Sam and Emerald.
A former soldier, Sam is a take charge, no nonsense man who six months ago would have sworn on his life that vampires were a figment of someone’s imagination and sexy Emerald was nothing more than a flaky, telephone sex therapist who drove him crazy with desire. But that was before spiritual warriors who morphed into wolves showed up in his town, Emerald and her daughter had strange visions that proved startlingly accurate and Sam led a rescue mission to the jungles of Belize that ended with him being bitten by the same man who had held him captive - sadistic Vladarian vampire, Luis Vasquez. Now demonic forces from Hell and Earth are gathering near Twilight for the coronation of Cinatas, the new Vladarian leader whose goal is to rule the world and Sam finds himself battling demons and vampires while slowly losing his ability to control the violence and overpowering sexual hunger invading his soul. As the evil in Twilight strengthens so does the vampire infection in Sam and he finds himself in a race against time to save the citizens of his town and the woman and child he has grown to love before the evil coursing through his veins overtakes his innate goodness and turns Sam into a monster who could destroy them all.
In her new series, St. Giles has created a complex, fascinating world where evil vampires live and work among us, holding positions of influence, wealth and power, and seductive, shape shifting spirit warriors move easily between the spirit realm and Earth, battling to save mankind from the evil that threatens both their world and ours. She leaves no doubt who the bad guys are in these stories. They are ruthless, sadistic monsters who revel in their depravity with chilling delight. Conversely, her heroes are brave warriors who will fight to the death to protect the women they love - strong, intelligent women who willingly battle just as fiercely to protect their men. Though one couple is the primary focus of each book in the series and achieves their HEA by the end of their book, there is an ongoing, overlying story arc and an ensemble cast of complex, multi-layered characters (both good and bad) who figure prominently in all of the books.
I strongly recommend reading this series in order: Touch a Dark Wolf, The Lure of the Wolf, Kiss of Darkness.
