Hi! I’m Zoe Forward, and I’m so excited to introduce you to NIGHTSHADE’S BITE. Here’s a sneak peek at what this book’s about:
Kiera Rossard’s secret life just got complicated. She’s leader of the Nightshade League, a rebel vampire society that rescues werewolves during the interspecies war. Everyone wants her dead—vampires and the werewolves who don’t know her secret. Most especially, the wolf she just saved—Michael Durand. Something about this particular werewolf sets her blood on fire. She’s not good at resisting temptation. So what if vampires always bite when they’re turned on? And so what if one drop of his blood will kill her? What’s life without a little risk?
N is for Nightshade’s League, the name of the secret group Kiera leads to rescue werewolves during the vampire-werewolf war.
I is for irresistible. The smell of Michael’s werewolf blood is irresistible and intoxicating to Kiera, a vampire. But one bite…one drop of his blood will kill her.
G is for grudgingly. Michael grudgingly accepts help from Kiera, first in escaping almost imprisonment from vampires and second to free a baby werewolf who was stolen.
H is for hot. The chemistry between Michael and Kiera is hot from the instant they meet, but for a vampire and werewolf a liaison is…
T is for taboo. Love between vampires and werewolves is taboo. Their species are at war. The ruling council of each forbids love affairs between species. This isn’t just because of the interspecies hate, but also werewolf blood will kill vamps (this species can’t resist biting when they’re… uh, turned on).
S is for sleep. There’s not a lot of sleeping going on in this novel. 😉
H is for heart. Kiera does everything in her life from the heart, with passion and no holding back, like falling for Michael. Like rescuing those persecuted and loving those she brought into her life.
A is for agony. Our hero and heroine suffer the agony of a love that cannot be.
D is for death. Someone dies in this book, possibly a main character (hint hint) but…
E is everything. Everything isn’t as it seems. There’s magic and deception aplenty.
S is for smexy. Our heroine is a smart, sexy, adrenaline junky with a drive to save the persecuted.
B is for bright. Before Michael met Kiera he’d been slipping into ennui, a time when an ancient werewolf loses his ability to experience emotion but with Kiera in his world, everything is bright, complex and abundant with feelings.
I is for intrigue. Plenty of intrigue surrounds reasons for the interspecies war and the way each species fights in it.
T is for team. There’s a huge support system for both Michael and Kiera. She has the Nightshade League. Michael leads not only the war as a general, but also he is a territory leader in Spain with a large and loyal family.
E is for ever-after. As in guaranteed HEA.
Blood Wars #2
Kiera Rossard’s secret life just got complicated. When not being a vampire aristocrat she’s leader of the Nightshade League, a rebel vampire society that rescues werewolves during the interspecies war. Everyone wants her dead—vampires and the werewolves who don’t know her secret. Starting with the wolf she just saved—Michael Durand, the most vicious killer of her kind in existence. Something about the notorious werewolf sets her blood on fire.
She’s not good at resisting temptation. So what if vampires always bite when they’re turned on? And so what if one drop of his blood will kill her? What’s life without a little risk?
Michael doesn’t like vampires. At all. But now he’s losing his mind over the dark desire Kiera stirs in him. He should plot her death. Only, she’s hot and mouthy. Staying near her a bit longer is irresistible. When unforgiving forces hone in on her secret identity, he must decide between duty to his people and protecting her. But if he stays, who will protect her from him?
