A New Contract!

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve just sold another book to Ellora’s Cave! I just heard from my editor and she loved Dark Justice and that they want it. One small issue is that I have to change the title, which I figured I’d have to anyway because of Feehan’s use of “Dark” in her books.

Anyway, this is the third in the Witches Knot series and centers on Simone Charvez and Kael Gardener. Here’s the long blurb:

Simone Charvez knows something is coming. Something bad and wrong and with its eye directly on the Charvez witches.

Kael Gardener is a vampire hunter. He’s been on a revenge fueled journey to hunt and kill vampires since he was fifteen years old.

Aidan Bell has a secret. Not all vampires are civilized like he is. There are rogues called Oathbreakers and they live to torture and kill humans for sport.

All of these things are headed to New Orleans and when they arrive, no one will be the same…

Simone Charvez admits she’s high maintenance, but she’s also more than the pretty piece of fluff everyone seems to take her for. When Kael Gardener walks into her shop, tattoos, piercings and bad boy attitude she knows she’s in for trouble. For Kael, the news that not all vampires are like the monsters that slaughtered his entire family is nearly as hard to take as his all encompassing attraction to a witch with a family that includes one.

Simone fights to get Kael to let his guard down and love her and Kael fights to keep his emotional distance from a woman he’s sure he has nothing to offer to. All of this as they race to find and kill the Oathbreakers who threaten not just all of New Orleans but Simone’s very soul.
