Kensington Brava has made an offer on my paranormal romance novella, In the Dark. Yay! This story should be released next Halloween (ah, what a great time of the year) in a Halloween Bad Boys anthology.
I’ve had readers email me about vampire extraordinaire Liam Sullivan, one of the secondary characters in Wicked Ways (from the WHEN HE WAS BAD anthology), and, hey–good news! He’s the hero of In the Dark. Want a tease of his story? Here you go–this is the very beginning of the novella:

Her dead lover stood on the other side of the bar, rubbing his hand against the back of some long-legged redhead and looking very much alive.
Sadie James drew in a deep breath. Caught the scent of smoke. Expensive perfume. Sweat.
I went to that jerk’s funeral. Cried over his grave.
A grave he didn’t seem to be occupying.
She’d even taken flowers to the graveside.
The redhead laughed. Tossed back her head. The man turned, braced his hand against the wall behind her head and leaned in even closer to her.

Two years. For two damn years she’d thought he was dead. While he was out there screwing redheads. Redheads who wore really trashy pink dresses.
He was bent over the woman now. His mouth poised over her throat.
Sadie was going to rip the bastard apart.
The redhead laughed. A high, tipsy giggle.
And even though she was still at least ten feet away, and the music blaring from the band jumping on stage was ear-splitting loud, Liam Sullivan stiffened. His dark head snapped up. He spun around, scanning the crowd.
His eyes, too damn blue and bright for a dead man, locked on her. She saw his stare widen and his lips began to curve into a smile—
A smile she’d knock off his still too-handsome face. “Liam.”Tweet It
