Back in 2012 I released HER DEVOTED VAMPIRE, my first paranormal romance. I recently received my rights back to it and I re-vamped it (lol) so now it's ready to read. I hope you enjoy the newer version of this tale.
So the snippet: Bridget has woken up, naked, in a richly decorated bedroom with Fredrick sitting next to her. She demands to know what kind of game he's playing and he slices open his hand with her pocketknife...except it zips itself back together without bleeding. Eep. Bridget is the first to speak.
“Who are you?” She shrank from him.
“I told you that before.” He causally set the knife aside. “My name is Fredrick MacGregor.”
“Okay, then, Mr. Obtuse, maybe a better question should be what are you?”
“You’re right. That is a better question.” Fredrick offered her a mischievous smile, but showed no teeth. “I’m a Noctivenator, commonly referred to as vampires, one of the Elder Races. What I’m less sure of and far more curious about is what you are.”
“Noctivenator, currently clanless, but still respected among the Clans.” He gave her a sweeping bow straight out of an Errol Flynn movie.
This guy is completely delusional.
“And you, Ms. Shanahan? What are you?”
“What I am is pissed off and wondering where the hell my clothes are.”
Her statement came out more of a snarl than conversation, but he remained unmoved. That just pissed her off more, and she welcomed it. Being mad was preferable to being scared, and right now, the crazy man whose hand didn’t bleed scared her spitless.
Plus he thinks he’s a vampire.
So much for having a rational explanation. ;) 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, Gem Sivad, Jessica Subject, and Iris Blobel. Here's the blurb for HER DEVOTED VAMPIRE:
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.
