Auric’s life couldn’t have been better. Poseidon brought him back from the Fade to attend the wedding of his sister, Aurelia, and his best friend, and he even got his old job back as a Poseidon operative. But he should have read the fine print. Not only was he not going to be a skirt-chasing merman anymore, he was now a day-walking vampire partnered with a tall, blonde, Berserker who was so not on-board with being a walking blood donor. In fact, he was one step away from a PTSD melt down. Maybe telling him they’d been accidentally blood-bonded wouldn’t be a good idea.
Even their assignment was whacked. The rising Welsh singer they’ve been assigned to befriend, and uncover why he was cooperating with a Mexican gang running drugs into the LA/Hollywood area, has some seriously strange quirks. Every time someone accidentally touches the singer’s blue dragon tattoo, a Star Wars-worthy holograph of a dark-haired beauty pops up and even though they’ve never met, she has been betrothed to the Welshman from birth. Whatever the singer is, he isn’t a card-carrying human.
Knowing when to fold ’em, Auric asks to be returned to the Fade forthwith only to learn all of the bad karma he’d earned, courtesy of his former sybaritic lifestyle, precludes any return unless it’s feet first and not by his own hand. Well you don’t become a top Poseidon operative unless you’re resourceful and Auric has a plan. All he has to do is sharpen a sturdy stake and hand it to his thoroughly pissed off partner right after he whispers the three words his heart has wanted to say to the man from the moment they were introduced. Yep, that should get him a one-way flight back to the Fade!
Cyn Hadyn, a career historian with Hungarian/Viking nomadic roots, goes balmy in Florida and has delusions of writing. How’s that for a current biography? Yeah, sounds silly but it’s true. I’m a transplanted Yankee living way south of the Mason-Dixon Line and enjoying the feeling of thin blood, sand, sun, and palm trees. I’ve sworn off snow, bare trees, brown grass, and real Italian food. Uh, not so much the Italian food. Still would sacrifice a small digit for authentic Italian cuisine a la Philly, Trenton, or New York.
Before settling down to write full time in the land of ’bless your heart, and y’all’, I was a Special Operations (US Army and US Marines) military historian/archivist. Now I collect a retirement check and write paranormal/historical romance. I guess my service with Army and Marine Special Operations left an indelible impression on my writing, because my characters, both male and female, are distinctly Spec Ops in their outlook. They leave no man behind, color outside the lines, and are very, very lethal. If you Google Cyn Hadyn, you’ll find my books range from paranormal to historical. I’ve also pushed the envelope a little by including Erotica and BDSM. Which brings me to my latest book, OFF TRACK, published by Decadent Publishing under the pseudonym C. L. Hadyn.
Another book about to appear under the name Cyn Hadyn is NULL SANCTION, published in eBook format by Rebel Ink. NULL SANCTION is a paranormal romance that gives a nod to my Hungarian roots. Although I haven’t included any distantly related vampires, there are one or two werewolves you might find interesting.
