A Short Story (Part7) and Giveaway: Hunt the Darkness (Guardians of Eternity #11) by Alexandra Ivy

Publication Date: June 3rd, 2014


The vampire, Roke, is raw, sensual, always in control. Yet somehow he's allowed the unthinkable to happen: a nymph-like witch named Sally has used her magic to trick Roke into mating with her. The pair will remain bound for eternity unless Sally breaks the spell. The trouble is, she has no idea how. . .

Mating with Roke was an accident; at least that's what Sally keeps telling herself. She's on the hunt for her demon father, whose identity holds the key to releasing the spell. The search won't be easy with Roke shadowing Sally's every move. As they mate with a ferocity that leaves them both aching for more, Sally isn't sure if her world is more dangerous without Roke—or with him. . .

Alexandra Ivy NEVER disappoints! Her ability to create drama, tension and humor in the midst of it all is perfectly captured in Hunt the Darkness. From start to finish, the heat and passion runs high in this fast-paced adult fantasy that she has populated with fiercely devoted characters, steaming tension and a cast of secondary characters that add so much to this tale! When an author can keep a series fresh and keep its characters feeling alive, they are doing their job, just as Alexandra Ivy always does! Her cherry on the top of her gift for words? Levet, definitely Levet. - Dianne (Goodreads)

Magnus wrapped his fingers around the amulet that was still warm from Fia’s skin. He’d had it made by a silversmith when he’d risen as a vampire to mark his new beginning. It’d disappeared along with Fia mere hours after he’d pledged his heart and soul to her.

At the time he’d told himself it was yet another example of just how unworthy she’d been of his love.

She’d not only stolen his heart, but his property. In his dark broodings he’d imagined her laughing as she’d returned to her family of grifters to reveal she’d managed to completely fool the besotted vampire. It was an image that had haunted him for the past century.

Which was why he’d charged down to the dungeons, fully intent on...his breath hissed between his aching fangs. Bloody hell. He didn’t know what he was going to do, but the second he’d caught sight of the familiar oval face with the large garnet eyes and the tumble of fiery curls he’d been nearly overwhelmed by the explosion of emotions. Lust, love, and a treacherous joy. This female might have betrayed him, but she was still the woman he’d chosen as his mate. Which meant that he still wanted her with a desperation that made his entire body tremble with need.

And worse, he couldn’t shake the suspicion that Fia had a specific purpose in allowing herself to be caught by Styx.

A purpose that involved him.

“I wanted to make sure you got it,” she muttered, her thick fringe of lashes lowering to hide her eyes.

A sure sign she was lying. “That’s not it,” he growled, narrowing his eyes. “You wanted to be caught.”

Her expression remained militant, but she took a revealing step backward at his accusation. “That’s so typical of you,” she muttered. “Arrogant ass.”

His lips twisted. “You don’t know anything about me. Not anymore.”

“I...” Fia halted, as if it was suddenly difficult to speak, an unexpected tear gliding down her cheek. “Yeah, maybe I don’t.”

Shit. Pain sliced through Magnus’s heart. Shoving the amulet in his pocket, he grabbed the bars of the cell. “Fia.”

Alti vampiri, alte istorii cu vamprii. Prima fraza face toata descrierea si iti fura un zambet, ca sa zic asa. E bine cand un autor vine cu vampiri noi, cu istorie noua.
