Back in 2012 I released HER DEVOTED VAMPIRE, my first paranormal romance. I recently received my rights back to it and I'm re-vamping (lol) so I can re-release it this year. I thought I'd give you a few snippets I've been working on in anticipation of it's re-release.
So the snippet: This is the first chapter of Her Devoted Vampire and Bridget is trying to read so she doesn't stare at the hot guy who came in. However, he doesn't make it easy on her.
Motion out of the corner of her eye made her turn her head against her better judgment and the mystery man grabbed his jacket before approaching her table.
“Mind if I join you?”
That voice… She’d heard it before, but she couldn’t place it and it did wonderful things to her insides.
“I…uh, yes, of course.” She gestured to the open chair beside her.
“Thank you.” He set his coffee down and settled the coat over the edge of the chair before sliding into the seat. “The book not to your liking?”
Bridget blinked. “What?”
“Your book. You keep giving it dirty looks. I take it the story is disappointing.”
She grimaced and nodded. “Yeah. More unbelievable than anything else.”
“Yet you’ve chosen a fantasy, no?”
“Even fantasy has to have an element of reality or there’s no suspension of disbelief.” She shrugged. “Maybe it’s because I can’t relate to the heroine at all. She seems…vapid.”
“Vapid?” He laughed in surprise and it warmed her from the inside out. “Excellent word. Definitely paints a distinct image.”
Vapid is definitely the word! :) There are several great authors on the Weekend Writer Warriors list and in the Snippet Sunday Facebook group. A few of my favorites are Charley Descoteaux, Jeff Tsuruoka, Veronica Scott, and Iris Blobel. Here's the blurb for HER DEVOTED VAMPIRE (with the new cover!):
How far would you go to get away?
Bridget Shanahan’s life seems bleak and boring until she gets mugged and abducted from her favorite coffee shop by the sexiest man she’s ever met. Unfortunately, he’s a lunatic who believes he’s some kind of vampire savior surrounded by a security force of werewolves. Worse, he’s determined to keep her.
Fredrick MacGregor has been having visions of this woman in danger for the last six months. A woman he must protect at all costs. However, when he brings her home, she doesn’t believe in vampires or Avatars, and she definitely doesn’t want to stay. But the sense of danger persists and he’ll do anything to keep her safe, even if it costs his own life to preserve hers.
This title should be re-released at the end of April 2016.
