But love waits…
After Asa ran from the lover who betrayed him, he vowed revenge. Now, years later, a powerful vampire wants him to steal seven necklaces from the king of the Ellowyn—or murder him.
When Asa discovers that the king is his long lost love, he stumbles into a web of secrets and dark power plays he might not escape, because Asa isn’t the only one who wants the king dead.
A promise he made long ago is tearing Zeveriah apart. He’s a false king, haunted by his past and despised by many of his own kind. When a new employee, who looks uncannily like his old love, appears at the royal manor, Zev thinks he’s found his fated one again.
But this lookalike calls himself Emek and can’t hide his horror of vampires. Zev longs to woo him back, but the annual coven meeting and threats to his life demand his attention. Though he escapes a mysterious attack, one of the lesser princes isn’t so lucky, and all signs point to Asa as the killer.
Now with a murderer running loose and enemies surrounding him, Zev has one last chance to save his love.
But time is running out.

Asa wiped his hands off on his jeans and knocked the cold mud from his fingers. After a week of rain, Jere had borrowed him, and now he stood in a rose garden behind the house.
Most of the fog had blown off, but the day was dull and gray.
Asa rubbed his palms together, wincing as slimy mud got in the creases, and gazed from under his brows at the corner of the house. The muscles in his neck and shoulders pulled into knots. Why didn’t the bastard show himself? Was something wrong with him? Maybe he was an invalid like the prince Isaac had fed.
Asa wasn’t outside much, but it was early, and the king supposedly took walks every day, so maybe…
But nothing happened, so he took his wheelbarrow back to the lean-to behind the garage and filled it with bags of bone meal, burlap strips, and metal hooks. Grunting as he lifted it, he wheeled it back, not looking up until he got partway down the slope to the garden. He set his load down and rolled his shoulders, his gaze falling on half a dozen vampires crossing the property toward the trees.
The one in the center had to be the king. His long hair lifted in the breeze like a crow’s wing, and Asa’s heart slammed in his chest as though it wanted out, the force knocking the breath out of him.
For fuck’s sake.
He took a breath, but the ache inside him swelled to bursting and… The king stopped, his companions almost running into him. As though something had called to him—as though Asa had called to him—he looked over his shoulder. So far away… too far away to see his face.
There was no reason for Asa to imagine him standing in the shade of the trees in the Lakewood Refuge. That had been another vampire, not this… Not this one. This was a king. A conqueror. Asa pictured a slash of lips over dripping fangs and coal black eyes lit with sulfurous fumes, not the sensuous mouth and merry eyes he really imagined.
A laugh floated on the air. The creature’s wavy hair had blown across his face, and Asa’s heart jumped again. He ached to sweep it away.
A few moments later, the king strode off, this time heading into the trees alone. Not wise. Going without his enforcers was asking for it even.
But so what? The thing was a monster.
About The Author
So… About me. I’ve never run a marathon or scaled Mt. Everest. I’ve never scuba dived or sky dived. I’ve surfed though. That was fun. I have six tattoos, and I really love ink.
I also love all plants. Zinnias are one of my favorite flowers. If you’ve never see a zinnia, look it up. Very pretty. It’s an old-timey plant but super easy to grow. Anyway, the big thing I do is write m/m erotic romance.
But as much as I love romance and sex, I really love going deep into the dark with my characters. What are their wounds? How can I peel them raw and drag them into the light? This leads to some fairly dark stories sometimes, but even the dark ones come with humor. I think the contradictions in people are ripe for hilarious scene setups. I need humor and light in my life—otherwise, I go into some pretty dark places myself.
I live with only one cat now—I once had thirteen. That was crazy. I take up most of the things I research for my characters—photography, tarot, and jewelry making for example. I even bought a recorder once because Ori from Jesus Kid played one. I love that part of my job.
I also love to walk and lift weights. I’m not a big fan of yoga—just throwing that out there. So far, all of my characters embody something of me, and all of my characters have given me something of them.
But no matter what the struggle is from book to book, love always wins out. I’m strong on plot, strong on character, stronger on love. You can count on happily ever after from me every time. I write my stories to open hearts and uplift spirits. Love matters. It counts. And it’s for everyone.
