My latest story, TRAPPED, takes a different look at the hard lives the mastyr vampires of the Nine Realms lead.
Mastyr Vampire Zephyr, a one-man fighting force, struggles to save the life of a woman who despises his warrior ways. She’s been a thorn in his side, but he has one goal: to keep her safe. For Alesia, however, she just wishes he’d leave her alone since she can never approve of his profession. She broke up with him months ago and wants to start a new life. The trouble is, he’s still the one man who can curl her toes. When the enemy attacks, Alesia has no choice but to stay with Zephyr under his roof. Trapped all day with the powerful warrior, she finds it hard to resist the comfort of his arms and the sensual feel of his lips pressed to hers. Will it hurt to offer to meet his blood-needs just this once or will surrendering leave her more vulnerable than ever?
I've thoroughly enjoyed learning how to plot and execute these shorter stories and have the second one, HUNGER, almost ready to go! The wonderful Carol Webb of Bella Media Management did this fabulous cover, which I've included here so that you can see how I've woven the theme together in the cover elements and style.
I'm convinced that the road ahead, as most of us embrace the digital revolution and the potential in the Indie market, will have to find dozens of ways to innovate in order to reach our individual readerships. These tales are my latest endeavor!
