But make no mistake. Threaten my girls, my sweet Samantha, my angelic Ollie, and I will suck the life from your dying veins and dig your heart from your chest with my bare hands just to ensure I’ve dotted my Is and crossed my Ts.
Because, you see, I lived through the agony of loss once before. In my darkest hours, the horror film of my first wife’s and child’s slaughter plays in my mind. I’d been human myself then, and powerless against the vampires who held me in their thrall and forced me to watch.
But no more. Now, my empathy enables me to know my enemies’ intentions and feelings before they’ve even acted upon them. My speed and strength give me razor-sharp reactions and terrible, but useful, power. And my soul-deep need to protect those I love removes even the slightest moral concern about ending a sentient life.
So don’t test me.
Because you will lose.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, Ollie asked me to watch Up with her. Have you seen that one? I love that bird. Laugh every damned time. Later.
I was within a block of Samantha’s when the chaotic sensations nearly leveled me—the stench and pain and rancid taste I registered as rage, jealousy, terror, and agony set me on full alert.
I had found Jacques. He had found Samantha. He held her in a tight embrace and was clearly feeding from her.
es were disbelieving as they angled up at me.
“You did this,” I hissed as I released his arms and brought my hands to his jaw. I didn’t pay attention to his newly freed hands until the cold steel pressed against my gut. He squeezed the trigger a split second before I ripped his head clean free of his body. Through a red haze, I watched as his head unevenly rolled under a bush. His body twitched then stilled.
Good News! FOREVER FREED is a dual finalist in the New Jersey Romance Writers’ Golden Leaf Contest for Published Authors – best paranormal & best first book categories!
After an isolated century mourning the murder of my long-ago family, I crave the irresistible scents of joy and love that radiate from my new neighbors, a single mother and her young daughter. I’m starved for their blood, and for the healing respite from my ancient grief that will accompany drinking down their life-giving emotions. Now to lure them in.
But they surprise me. Little Olivia accepts me without fear or reservation—talking, smiling, offering innocent affection that tugs at my long-lost humanity. Her mother, Samantha, seeks me out when she should stay away, offering sweet friendship, and calling to the forgotten man in me. They lure me in.
Aw, Dio, Lucien, run and spare them while you can…
