Series Connection: Book 7, Riley Jenson Guardian series
Seduction that kills. Pleasure to die for.
She just can't resist . . .
Guardian Riley Jenson always seems to face the worst
villains. And this time's no different. For it's no ordinary sorceress who can
raise the dead to do her killing. But that's exactly what Riley expects to find
at the end of a trail of female corpses used—and discarded—in a
bizarre ritual of evil. With pressure mounting to catch one fiend, another
series of brutal slayings shocks the vampire world of her lover, Quinn. So the
last thing Riley needs is the heat of the upcoming full moon bringing her
werewolf hormones to a boil—or the reappearance of a sexy bounty hunter,
the rogue wolf Kye Murphy.
Riley has threatened Murphy with arrest if he doesn't back
off the investigation, but it's Riley who feels handcuffed by Kye's lupine
charm. Torn between her vamp and wolf natures, between her love for Quinn and
her hots for Kye, Riley knows she's courting danger and indulging the deadliest
desires. For her hunt through the supernatural underworld will bring her
face-to-face with what lurks in a darkness where even monsters fear to tread.
From the Author's Website:
I'm a born and bred Melbourne (Australia) gal, and grew up
sharing my life with dragons, elves, vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters and
the occasional talking horse. Which worried my family to no end. Of course, now
that I'm actually make a living sharing my life with the abovementioned
creatures, they no longer contemplate calling the men with the little white
coat. When not at my keyboard, I can be found in front of the TV, or taking my
two dogs for a walk.
Past day jobs: Clerk at the Bureau of Meteorology, Cook at
the MCG, Function and Desert cook at the Essendon Football Club
How did I start writing? It all happened when I was about twelve.
I'd just read one of Elaine Mitchell's brumby books (not the silver brumby
series, one of the others) and I hated the ending. So I did what seemed the
most natural thing to do--I rewrote it :). I haven't stopped writing
since--though I have to admit, it's only in the last fifteen years or so that I've
seriously thought about getting published.
Why urban fantasy and paranormal romance? Well, I've always
loved books filled with action, be they fantasy, horror or mystery. What used
to annoy me, though, was the lack of capable female stars in many of these
books. I mean, come on, not all of us females trip over our feet while running
away from the big bad. Some of us would actually grab the nearest weapon and
bop them over the head with it. So that's what I wrote--strong, capable women,
first in fantasy novels and then in what is now called paranormal romance. I
tried for many years to write straight fantasy, but it just never fully clicked
for me. So I switched to the real world, and started mixing fantasy elements
with the ordinary, everyday world. I think I wrote my first paranormal romance
close to 16 years ago, and I've been switching between that and urban fantasy
What I do beside write: Not a whole lot, actually. Walk, go
to the gym, watch more TV than is wise, visit craft market on the weekends,
plant plants and try to keep them alive during our drought.
