Mastyr Seth craves his shifter bodyguard, Lorelei, but with her close connection to the enemy, how can he ever trust her?
He’s lived a solitary life and needs no one...
Mastyr Vampire Seth craves Lorelei, his new bodyguard, but he has a hands-off policy with those under his command. However, the sexy glint in her eye, as well as her wolf-shifter ways, keeps him in a fevered state. He’s lived a life of enforced solitude as Mastyr of Walvashorr Realm, but when the enemy arrives, ready to invade his land, he must rely on his bodyguard more than he ever dreamed possible. So much proximity breaks through his resistance and he takes the woman, marking her in a shocking shifter way that overturns his careful, analytical world. But when her connection to the enemy puts his realm in danger, how can he embrace a serious relationship with her?
She’s loved him from the first moment she saw him...
Lorelei guards Seth night after night, her heart on fire. She’s loved him from the time she snuck into his workout room and watched him go through his rigid exercise routine. Now serving as his bodyguard, she wants to take her relationship with the Mastyr of Walvashorr to the next level, but Seth holds back. That he desires her comes through in his wicked mossy scent, which in turn ignites her inner wolf. When he finally gives in to his own cravings and makes his move, she shows him how hot shifter-love can be. But will she ever be more than just his bodyguard?
I was ten when I first watched an old movie version of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE and loved it! Movies led to books, which led to writing and after a good long while, publishing. I wrote sweet Regency romance for Kensington for 19 years and recently fell in love with paranormal, although I’ve always had a thing for vampires. I currently write paranormal romance for St. Martin’s Press but I self-publish as well. Building an online platform has been an enormous but rewarding challenge. I think all the changes in publishing will alter how authors approach the business going forward and I for one am thrilled to have so many options.
I’ve been in love with vampires for a very long time and years ago, under the pseudonym Valerie King, I wrote a Regency vampire novella for Kensington that prompted a fan to tell me she hoped it would be made into a movie! How’s that for an accolade?!? But that was long before there was such a thing as a 'Paranormal’ market...and for all that time vampires have been in my blood! Yes...pun intended, or...don’t I wish!
Some of my favorite writers include Gena Showalter, Lara Adrian, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and JR Ward. If you’ve read and loved these authors as I have, then you can guess that my Guardians of Ascension series is centered around powerful warrior vampires and an ongoing battle between good-and-evil.
In addition to these authors, other favorites are: Laurell K. Hamilton who created probably my all-time favorite vampire in Jean-Claude, non? I also love Patricia Brigg’s paranormal work and I’m hoping one day she’ll develop vampire Stefan who has a wonderfully dark aura and who seems as captivated with Mercy as her werewolves are. Kresley Cole wrote one of my favorite vampires in Sebastien, so of course I now have a cat named Sebastien.
