Blood Ex Libris
Blood, passion, and swords. And don’t forget flamethrowers. And one librarian, in over her head.
How did I get here: covered in blood and holding a sword I can’t use?
It all started when the dark and mysterious stranger showed up at my children’s reading hour. Of course I noticed him. I’d been single (and bored) for longer than I care to admit. Me, I’m Anushka (Noosh) Rosetti, head librarian.
He turned out to be a vampire. And not just any vampire: Vlad Dracula. Although he goes by another name these days, and he says he’s changed his violent ways. He definitely seemed more of a lover than a fighter. At first.
In a whirlwind of passion and blood-drinking, I made a crucial but impulsive decision: share blood with him a third time, and give up normal human society forever, making my life among the “am’r”—that’s what the vampires call themselves.
The whirlwind just keeps spinning faster. Before I know it, I’m at an am’r summit meeting—and then, abducted by Vlad’s oldest enemy. He’s hoping to use me to undo all of my lover and my new family’s plans to save am’r society from tearing itself apart.
I thought I was just going to archive some ancient books, but somehow I have to keep myself from being used as a pawn by the craziest bad guy ever, escape back to the good guys (and I’m not sure how “good” they really are) across a desert (I don’t even know what country I’m in!) and not be killed in the process. I don’t know how I will survive the next five minutes, never mind save my beloved’s life, too….
Blood Ex Libris is the first book in a brand new, dark urban fantasy series mixing horror, history, and blood-soaked romance featuring a snarky librarian heroine, a sensual but complex hero in the story of a life that unfolds in unexpected ways from humdrum to death-defying thrills, from Middle America to the middle of an unknown desert, surrounded by sword-fighting, explosions, and the ultimate drama of immortals meeting death.
What to expect: Steamy romance with uninhibited language, strong female lead, alpha male, graphic violence, LGBTQ+ characters, and blood feeding imagery.
Blood Sine Qua Non
Covered in blood, a knife in one hand and a gun in the other. This rescue attempt has gone terribly wrong.
I was finally getting used to life among the am’r (the name vampires use for themselves) in Romania, archiving a library of ancient texts, learning how to fight, and having lots of quality time with Sandu—who used to go by the name Dracula—perhaps you’ve heard of him?
But then the dreams started. Bagamil, the maker of Sandu (and, ahem, also my lover—life has gotten a lot more exciting recently), was supposed to be on a mission to the am’r of South America, but he has been missing for months now, and those nightmares tell me that something is terribly wrong.
So Sandu made rescue plans, and I insisted on coming along to help. But now I’ve been separated from all the am’r who are our allies, and I’m trapped in a booby-trapped cave system down at the bottom of the world, chased by enemy vampires with knives and guns—not fair!
And I have two problems even on top of that! First, I’m now part-am’r, which makes me smell even more delicious to them, and secondly, well, there seems to be even more bad guys than expected down here, and they all seem to be holding some deep grudges against both Sandu and Bagamil. And they want revenge right now.
How can I find my beloveds without falling into a trap or being taken captive by the hangry bad guys? Once we’re all together again, how do we figure some way out of all of this? If I’ve learned anything in my time amongst the am’r, it’s only going to be by fighting our way out….
Blood Sine Qua Non is the second book in a brand new, dark urban fantasy series mixing horror, history, and blood-soaked romance featuring a snarky librarian heroine and a sensual but complex hero in the story of an adventure like no other, with thrilling plot-twists and characters faced with “personal growth or death.” Ranging from Romania through gorgeous settings in Buenos Aires and Tierra del Fuego, get caught up in the clashes of personality and chaotic melees, fight for love with guns, knives, and the ultimate weapon against vampires: fire.
What to expect: Steamy romance with uninhibited language, strong female lead who can fight, non-monogamy, LGBTQ+ characters, graphic violence, and blood feeding imagery.
Damian’s Chronicles Complete Series Boxed Set
After a long time with mercenaries, his church has called their demon-possessed priest home
Grab the entire series in one complete boxed set today!
A London flat nestled in a small cul-de-sac, a beautiful courtyard with bright shining sun, and as many books as he could read.
It was going to be quiet, calm, and… Oh wait, it’s actually the demon apocalypse.
With incursions, hauntings, and poltergeists to take care of, Damian is one of the only priests his church can call on.
At least for now.
They did send a welcoming gift in the shape of a young trainee, Max, who may or may not know his head from his… Well, you get the point.
Will Damian, with the help of some friends along the way, be able to kick the slaying and start to save the souls of his attackers? Or will his red-eyed granny of a neighbor poison him with a pie first?
If his demon has anything to do with it, exorcisms will only be done in the most fashionable style.
Secrets and action await you as you follow Damian up his path from hell.
The church is so very needy.
Sitting at a Roman café waiting for a friend, Damian is starting to think that taking a van full of unconscious priests might not have been the best option.
Nonetheless, Damian has survived his first couple of weeks as a “Demon <redacted>” or whatever the church wants to call him.
Can his protégé settle into the life of a warrior priest? Max still fights his own personal demons but hopes for a better future with Damian as his guide.
Neither of the priests’ demons are terribly happy with their hosts. Can Astaroth modify Max’s entertainment habits or Ravi change Damian’s sense of fashion?
Good luck with that.
Danger will hit Damian hard in the face, and he will have to decide between friendship and duty.
Damian never was very good at following orders or dealing with limitations placed on him…
A little gunpowder goes a long way.
Damian has to deal with secrets. Too many secrets…and one of them is about a Demon he knows personally.
What’s a little blood between friends and enemies?
The demons are bitching and life must go on, right?
Good luck with that.
Those in charge have provided orders for Damian.
Except, Damian has never been good at following orders or dealing with limitations placed on him…
It takes a man a while to walk in his shoes…
Damian is finishing up many things in his life, including Max’s training – if they survive.
Should he continue to allow secrets to run his life?
The clues are starting to track back to some influential players, but where is the proof?
Not that Ravi, in Damian’s mind, cares a wit about hard proof.
Those in charge have secrets, and perhaps it is time to find them out.
Except, Damian has never been good at following orders or dealing with limitations placed on him, will Heaven accept his decisions?
Scroll back to the top and click “Read for Free” or “Buy Now,” and kick back for a fun supernatural action-packed adventure that will have you yelling for the good guys and laughing at the arguments between Damian and his protégé.
NOTE: This book contains cursing. Perhaps humorous cursing, but cursing nonetheless. If this offends you, I suggest you don’t read this book.
