Release Date and teaser for Ivan!!

Release Date for Ivan

Friday, September 29th, 2017!!

I've got a lot of work to make this happen but there it is, the release date. As soon as I've got the description ready and the pre-order I'll post links. For now since I'm falling a bit behind I'll leave you with a teaser. 

****

After a few minutes James looks at me. “This is bad, like really, really, bad.”
“What is it?” I ask reluctantly.
I wasn’t sure if I wanted to know what I had gotten myself into.
“I can’t do anything with it. If I do it will blow. If you move it will blow. Marcus rigged it so that no one could diffuse it.” He explains.
“What aren’t you telling me?” I push.
James sighs and glances away from me for a moment before finally answering me. “It’s rigged to a timer.”
“How much time do we have?” I ask.
“We have less than five minutes.” He replies.
“Damn it.” I curse.
I pinch the bridge of my nose while closing my eyes. “What do we do now?”
“I’ll search the rest of the house. Once I’m done I’ll figure out how to get you out of this house alive, okay.” James replies.
“James…” I breathe out. “I don’t think that’s a good idea. The last thing we need is both of us stuck in this position.”
“I’ll be careful, Ivan.” He insists.
Without another word he rushes off to check the rest of the house. Closing my eyes I take in a deep breath to keep myself calm.
I wasn’t honestly sure I would get out of this in one piece.
I sure as hell wouldn’t risk James’s life if it came down to it. I would force him to leave and stay behind to deal with this situation myself, even if it cost me my life.
After the longest three minutes of my life James returns.
“Did you find anything?” I ask.
He holds up a few sets of keys. “I found these scattered around. I have no idea why but we might need them. With the games that Marcus liked to play we can’t take anything for granted.”
I nod in agreement. God only knew what the keys were for. For all we knew they were necessary to release Silas. Then again they may have been placed there just as a distraction.
Either way it was smart thinking on James’s part to collect them.
“Were there any downstairs? I didn’t pay attention.” I reply.
“Obviously…” James snorts before sighing. “I’ll check quickly.”
He rushes off in a blur of motion before returning a few moments later.
I raise my brow in question as he holds up a sealed envelope with Harper’s name written on it.
“What the hell?” I breathe out.

James shrugs. “Who knows, but this doesn’t matter right now. Right now we have to figure out how to get you out of here before you get yourself blown up.”

Tuesday Teaser & Cover Reveal!!

Tuesday Teaser!!

I'm going to bundle a Cover Reveal and a Tuesday Teaser today. So, here it is Ivan's book. It's going to be Book 2.5 in The Vampires of Linbridge Series. It's going to be in Ivan's POV and will bridge Book Two and Book Three much like Erik Book 1.5 did. I've nearly finished writing Ivan's story so I'll be planning a release date soon. For now here's a teaser from Ivan's book. Enjoy!!

****

My mind wonders back to the days I had spent with Harper. I sort through everything I had done right along with everything I had done wrong.
Choosing Clara over Harper had been the worst mistake.
I had been a fool and it had cost me everything.
After a few more minutes on the road I spot a secluded rest stop where I could hopefully find someone to eat since I had failed to pack any blood before I had left.
Once again I was full of poor decisions.
Pulling into the rest stop I park my bike in the parking lot before climbing off of my seat. I sigh roughly while pulling my helmet off.
I scan the area quickly but only find one heartbeat inside the building.
Fortunately there wouldn’t be any witnesses but unfortunately I had to feed on whoever was there. I had no other choice. I had gone too long without eating.
When a young woman walks out of the building I curse my luck.
She looked just like Harper which was going to make this entire encounter painful. It was also going to make this situation dangerous for the girl.
Instead of moving towards her I force myself to remain in place while she goes to her car and then slips inside. It was best to let her leave.
I struggle not to run after her as she drives away.
Closing my eyes I growl out in frustration. Seconds later I find myself running after the girl’s car as my vicious side is unleashed.
She doesn’t get far before I slam my body into the side of her vehicle hard enough to cause it to flip. The pain from the impact only lasts for a moment as I watch the car roll over twice before landing upside down.
The scent of girl’s blood hits me and my fangs cut into my bottom lip as my hunger grows.
Once again I watch the girl as she crawls out of the car window and through the broken glass scattered on the ground. The glass only causes her to bleed more which sends my senses into overdrive.
Before I can stop myself I attack.
The girl screams but I ignore her while drinking down her sweet blood.
I don’t stop until her heart stops beating.
I finally pull away and pant for my next breath. I begin to panic as I look down at the girl and then towards her blood covering my hands.
I had killed her.

I had murdered this girl without a second thought.

Tuesday Teaser!!

Tuesday Teaser!!

While everyone's been reading Blood I've been working on Book 2.5. This one is going to be in Ivan's point of view. I chose him because there's a lot going on with him right now and he needed a voice to explain it all. I haven't created a cover yet so bear with me. The good news is that I'm nearly finished and I will be moving directly on to book 3. For now here's a teaser from Ivan's POV. Enjoy!!

****

The second Harper pulls away my world becomes dark once again. Our moment had ended and definitely not in the way that I had expected.
Her eyes revealed her disgust.
I swear my chest felt as if she had punched her hand straight through my chest to squeeze the life out of my heart.
Instead of sticking around to hear anything that she had to say I walk away.
Once I’m in my room I slam the door shut before leaning back against it.
Closing my eyes I try and fail to block the pain slicing through my heart. I pant for my next breath before whimpering softly.
When I can’t take any more I grab the nearest object, which happened to be a framed picture of Harper, and I, and throw it against the wall. The glass shatters and then falls to the floor.
I growl out as I grab something else and throw it.
Before I know it everything in my room is left lying in broken pieces on the floor.
I freeze in place when the door squeaks open.
“Oh, Ivan…” Harper whispers.
“Go away, Harper.” I snap a bit too harshly.
“No.” She replies stubbornly.
Growling in frustration I turn to face her before pointing towards the door. “Leave now.”
She shakes her head while crossing her arms across her chest. “No.”
“Damn it, Harper, just leave.” I try one more time.
“I’m not going to leave, Ivan. Not like this, not when you’re…” She trails off.
“When I’m what, Harper?” I grit out. “…When I’m about to lose control, when I’m about to rip my heart out because it hurts too much, or would you rather stare at me with disgust some more?”
“Enough, Ivan…” She snaps. “I’m worried about you, okay. I still care about you.”
“Then why did you look at me like the very thought of biting me made you sick?” I push.
 “I was angry with myself, Ivan.”She replies. “I didn’t want you to take more away from what happened than what it actually meant.”
“Obviously I knew it didn’t mean anything.” I growl out.
“Are you sure because from where I’m standing it appears that it meant much more to you than just nothing.” Harper argues while waving her hands around at the wreckage in my room.
“What does it matter anymore, Harper? You’ve already replaced me. You never have to love me again. James, Erik, and Silas can give you everything you want and need.” I reply.
“Ivan…” Harper begins softly. “I still need you.”
“No. You’re just being selfish.” I bite out.
“And you’re being a jerk.” She snarls. “Did you really think this would be easy, that it would be easy to stand in front of you after what you did to me?”
“I’m sorry, Harper.” I reply. “How can I make you see how sorry I am?”
She shakes her head while closing her eyes. “You just don’t get it, Ivan.”
“What is there to get?” I ask.
“You crushed my heart and then you flaunted your relationship with Clara in front of me. I can’t look at you, even now, without seeing her still.” Harper replies.

“I will never be able to get close to you until she disappears completely.” She adds.

Harper is a young girl who grew up in a special town, a town called Linbridge. What’s so special about this town? Well, it might be the simple fact that most of its residents are vampires. They aren’t the bloodthirsty type though. They only want to live in peaceful harmony with the humans surrounding them. Of course no one dares to defy the rules that the vampires have placed over the town. When Harper’s eighteenth birthday comes it comes with the chance to become a protected or an unclaimed. The protected are well taken care of by their vampire protectors while the unclaimed are fair game for whatever goes bump in the night. A week before her birthday her current protector, Finnick, rejects his claim to continue being her protector. Harper’s whole world changes in an instant but it’s not all bad. She meets a few new friends. There’s a connection she has with them, one that she can’t exactly explain. Along with the new friends she is reunited with an old one, Alex. He’s one of the unclaimed. Just when things seem to be at their best, everything once again crumbles down around Harper. Lies are uncovered and some truths are revealed. There’s a bigger picture to Harper’s connection with her newest friends. They aren’t what they seem. In fact they aren’t even human. They’re vampires, part of a vampire clan to be precise and they hunt down other vampires who break the laws of their kind. Harper soon falls for one of the clan members but it all comes unraveled with the sudden appearance of an old flame. Clara has held the clans hearts for centuries. Will Clara’s past with the clan destroy everything Harper has or will another threat take her life away? Can love prevail or will it only destroy her more? Harper may run but she won’t be able to hide forever.

Running from Linbridge is the last thing Harper ever expected to be doing, but she really has no other choice. There was no way she could stay, especially after killing Clara and attacking Ivan and James.
At least she doesn’t have to run alone. Drake stays by her side through it all, just like he had promised to.
Even though they intended to run far from Linbridge they end up staying in the neighboring town where they find a friendly hotel owner who gives them a much needed break.
Just when Harper has a chance to catch a breath the clan finds her. James finds her and he’s not about to leave without her. Surprisingly he doesn’t hold what Harper had done against her. He only wants her to be safe and right now she’s not exactly safe, not with the vampire that Erik and Ivan are after running loose.
After some convincing Harper gives in and allows James back into her life. After all he hadn’t hurt her nearly as bad as Ivan and Erik had. James had remained in the background, until now. Now he was the only connection to the clan that Harper had. If she ever expected to get them back she needed to form a strong relationship with James.
With time and a push from James, Harper gives in and returns to Linbridge. Of course the fact that Ivan and Erik have been oddly silent pushes Harper to make her decision quicker.
Once James and Harper return to Linbridge they become increasingly worried, and for good reason. Ivan and Erik have changed, and not in a good way. They’ve allowed their vampire sides to take over fully causing them to be vicious and cruel.
Bringing them back lands on Harper’s shoulders.
She’s the only one who can reach their softer sides.
Just when things seem to be coming back together everything spins further out of control, especially after she meets the newest resident of Linbridge. Silas, he’s human but there’s something that’s drawing Harper towards him. His blood is calling to her even though she can’t drink it.
There’s only one choice to make and that choice only causes more problems. Marcus attacks and takes Silas away once he learns about Harper’s connection with him. Marcus then uses that bond to torture Harper along with Erik, Ivan, and James. He aims to destroy everything they have unless they give into his demands.
The clan isn’t going to allow that to happen, not without a fight.
Marcus has to be destroyed.
Unfortunately once they finally get the upper hand on Marcus the hope of getting Silas back disappears.
Harper’s left with more choices to make, ones that could cause the end of her or the end of the clan. For now all that Harper can do is keep Silas from completely losing hope.
They will find him; they just need more time and a little luck on their side.
