Spotlight: The Young Vampire's Survival Guide

The Young Vampire's Survival Guide
by Lucy Eldritch


GENRE: Vampire/Urban fantasy/Paranormal/Horror

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Within a month of being bitten, it cost the life of Robert James' best friend. Within a year, hundreds had died. All because of him.

Until he was bitten, Robert James was a regular college student. Now he seems to be the reluctant future of vampire kind and his world has been turned upside down. Pursued by the Dawn Warriors - a group dedicated to cleansing the world of evil - Robert's survival is at stake. Literally.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Excerpt One:

My eyes narrowed and I hissed, "How did you know about the note, Pixie?" My voice was low and menacing. I didn't even look at her, just dug my fingers into the upholstery of the seat to keep the boiling rage inside me from spilling over.

"Galloway," she answered. "When he...he....in that dungeon...when..." She was shaking now.

I reacted without thinking. Reaching across, I placed a hand on her arm. "It's OK," I said, "it's OK. I believe you. I'm sorry."

Pixie inhaled deeply and let out a slow, steady breath. When she spoke again, she was back in control of her emotions. I wished I could have said the same thing.

"They hadn't felt that half-vampires were any threat until you came along. But now," she said, "they've realised their mistake. I overheard Tarrie telling someone your mother should be the first to die as that would send the strongest message."

As we pulled up opposite the house, I could see my mum talking to Mrs Harewood from next door, who was busy pruning the hedge that divided their properties. My heart leapt.

I hurled a twenty pound note at the taxi driver, half-dragged Pixie out of the car and tore across the road. My mother broke into a beaming smile when she saw me and opened her arms to greet me.

At that moment, I thought we'd made it in time. We hadn't.

Dante Notte has heard it said that love hurts. He just wasn't expecting it to run him over in an RV. Still, a punctured lung and broken ribs are nothing compared to the full-body shock he feels whenever he's near the vehicle's driver, Mary Winslow. He needs to keep her safe from their pursuers while he rescues his brother. Most challenging of all, he needs to claim this smart, stubborn woman as his life mate.

The naked, injured, insanely gorgeous younger man who clambered into her RV insists they belong together. If Mary wasn't feeling their incredible connection in every inch of her being, she wouldn't believe it.

I’d like to be happy for Finn, I really would. But all of my instincts are telling me that beneath the syrupy sweet demeanor and old-fashioned charm, this sudden interloper is planning something. The whole shtick leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. This person might have avoided the grave once, but I’ll put anyone who hurts Finn in the ground—for good. (Goodreads)

Genre: Paranormal Romance
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR
Blurb:
As the only half vampire, half angel in existence, Zak Goodwin is an unbeatable foe and unashamed womanizer. With his band of warriors, he rids the earth of demons, while guarding a ring created from the blood of angels – a ring that, when coupled with an ancient dagger, has the power to destroy the earth.  Only the dagger has been lost for centuries and no matter how great Zak’s power, it remains out of reach.

That is until Georgia Pearce, an ordinary human with psychic abilities, stumbles across the dagger hidden on her property, and the connection between the ring and dagger is activated.

With ancient vampires hot on her tail, Georgia risks it all to keep her loved ones safe, including her heart. Can she trust Zak not to betray her? 



Author Jane Hinchey writes because she has to, the characters in her head won't give her a moments peace until she unleashes them into the world. She writes sexy, snarky, badass paranormal romances.  

She's addicted to coffee, playing the sims and tropical holidays.

A former corporate nerd, she now lives with her hottie of a man, two cats and a turtle in the city of churches {aka Adelaide, South Australia}. Writing soothes her author heart and gives her peace...and working from home barefoot and braless doesn't hurt either.

She stood facing him now, breath rasping in and out of her lungs, skin sheened in sweat, but she would not back down. Crouched, knife held confidently in hand, she watched him. He was motionless before her, eerily so, but then she’d gotten used to that, it was a weird vampire thing. Her eyes scoured for his tell, a twitch or a blink that gave him away. There! That blink meant he was about to pounce. Just as he began to move she cut him off, leaping out of the way and slicing with the blade at the same time. The knife left a trail of red across his stomach and he looked down in surprise. She’d nailed him. His eyes narrowed dangerously and he mimicked her crouch. It was on like Donkey Kong. He pounced, she lunged and the dance continued movements fast and fluid until suddenly he was on top of her and white-hot pain shot through her abdomen. Her hands clutched at her stomach and she felt wet stickiness ooze through her fingers.

“Ah fuck,” Kyan cursed, springing up from her. They both looked to where the knife was protruding from her stomach, the scent of her blood filling the air.
