Today’s Guest is Yasmine Galenorn!

Yasmine’s here with a sneak peek of Night Seeker, her upcoming Indigo Court release!

I love Tony Mauro’s covers so much! (he did my Brown sibling books too, and Anya Bast’s covers as well – and many others)

Night Seeker by Yasmine Galenorn
Book 3 of the Indigo Court Series
Berkley Mass-Market, July 3, 2012
Urban Fantasy ISBN: 978-0425250327
Available for pre-order from:,

Eons ago, vampires tried to turn the dark Fae to harness their magic, only to create a demonic enemy more powerful than they could have imagined. Now, the Vampiric Fae are on the move, hunting anyone in their path. As the war with the vampires ratchets up, Myst, Queen of the Indigo Court, enshrouds New Forest in her chilling grasp.

Cicely Waters, owl shifter and Wind Witch, has rescued the Fae Prince Grieve at a great cost. Their reunion has lost them the allegiance of the Summer Queen-and the tolerance of the vampires. In desperation they turn to the Consortium for help. Now, to regain the good will of Lainule, they must dare to enter the heart of Myst’s realm. But as Cicely and Grieve embark on their search for the heartstone of Summer, Winter is already wreaking her terrifying revenge.


Grieve nodded, leaning in to plant a light kiss on my lips. His razor sharp fangs glistened in the light of day. He sniffed my neck. “I’m so thirsty for you,” he whispered, the light in his eyes flickering a dangerous shade of desire.

Stepping back, I put my hand on his chest and he caught it, bringing it to his lips. He turned it palm up, and exposed my wrist free from the glove and jacket. Slowly, his dark, starry, gaze never leaving mine, he leaned down and lightly nipped the skin. As a thin line of blood welled up, my body responded and I wanted to strip, to pull him to me, to fuck in the snow and ice. But I forced myself to stand still as he slowly began to lick the droplets off my skin.

“We are in Myst’s realm. The feral side of your nature is coming out to play.” I wasn’t trying to stop him— I knew by now that wasn’t a safe thing to do, but I was trying to bring him back to himself.

He paused, his long lashes flickering. After a moment, he drew back with a shudder. “I am not safe here. But there is no turning back. Watch me, Cicely. Chatter— I am relying on your common sense. If you see me slipping too far, get them out of here, away from me.”

Grieve looked so stricken I wanted to go to him, to kiss him, to reassure him that I would never leave him again, no matter what, but I knew now that promises were like burning paper in this world of snow and ice: Quick to make but easy to vanish into smoke and ashes. Instead, I pressed my fingers to my lips and held them out toward him. He nodded, understanding.

    I love Fae stories. The cover is amazing. Very moody. I’m not surprised it’s the same artist that did the Brown covers. Very talented.

    I admit I hadn’t read Yasmine’s stuff until I came across a story in an anthology, and now I’ve gotta catch up! Those anthologies are awesome for finding me new authors 🙂 Thanks for the peek!

    I want to read more shifter books and I think I found another author to look for. Nicely described in the excerpt, everything from the fangs and eyes.
