Bound in Darkness Back to Blog

It looks like I am going to have another release available soon. Like–very soon. I’ve been working on another novella that I wanted to release as a .99 ebook, and I wanted to share the blurb and cover with you:

Here’s the blurb for this story:


When it comes to killing vampires, werewolf Cade Thain is the best slayer in the Northwest. So when a witch hires him to take out a pureblood vamp, the assassin thinks it will be just business as usual. One less vicious vamp on the streets…one more undead parasite gone from the earth. Then he meets her.


Allison Gray isn’t the prey that Cade expects. Beautiful, innocent, she stirs a dark desire within him. Allison hasn’t transformed fully into a vampire, not yet, and it’s Cade’s job to make sure that she never does. Allison thinks that he’s at her side to keep her safe, but Cade is supposed to pick the right moment—and kill her.


Killing Allison is soon the last thing that Cade plans. As she begins the transformation that will turn her into a vampire, her bloodlust and their desire merge in an explosion of need that neither can control. But Allison’s enemies are closing in, and the coming battle will take Cade and Allison beyond life, beyond love…and into a deadly darkness that waits to claim them both.

Bound in Darkness.


BOUND IN DARKNESS is a vampire/werewolf romance–one that takes place in the same “world” I created with BOUND BY BLOOD. I want to thank all of the wonderful folks who read BOUND BY BLOOD and emailed to ask for another story.  I’ve wanted to write the plot for BOUND IN DARKNESS for a while–this story is actually my twist on the Snow White fairy tale. It’s Snow White…with vampires and werewolves. My hero, Cade? Well, in the Snow White tale, he’d be the guy who was originally supposed to take Snow White into the woods and kill her. Only…as we all know, that hunter didn’t kill Snow White.

In my tale, my hunter doesn’t kill her, either. Cade falls for her.

Right now, I am planning to release BOUND IN DARKNESS on September 12.  Guess what that means?


On September 12, the paranormal romance anthology, ENTANGLED, will also be released.

ENTANGLED is a charity anthology, and all of the proceeds from this book will benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  Want to see the blurbs for all of these stories?  Here you go:
