Sexy Vampires for Halloween? 2nd Edition Forsaken Brethren Twin Pack up for Grabs! #vampireromance #timetravel

Wishing everyone a Happy Halloween week! This year it’s all about vampires, time travel, sizzling romance, medieval knights and Roman gladiators. How so? I just released the 2nd edition of my Forsaken Brethren Twin Pack and the price is absolutely unbeatable.

Though the premise of each story remains the same, both were written nearly a decade ago and deserved a refresh. Not only that but an extra steamy scene was added to Darkest Memory (Book 1) and Heart of Vesuvius (Book 2) has a brand new ending. A twist nobody saw coming!

The best part? Now through October 30th, this twin pack is FREE at Amazon!

 So be sure to grab your copy HERE! 

Book Description

DARKEST MEMORY: Calah lands a career-making interview with billionaire club owner, Gabriel Knight. His dark looks and mysterious nature captivate her. However, looks can be deceiving. Bizarre things start happening. She hears his seductive voice when he hasn't spoken. Vampire, Gabriel would have waited a thousand centuries for Calah to return. A stormy night brings her to him. He should have remained a secret to protect her but fate has other plans. Determined to keep her safe, he lures her to his estate. But he's underestimated his overwhelming need for her and their unavoidable draw to the past. Now he must fight not only his own unquenchable desires but those of a very old and powerful rival determined to extinguish their very existence.

HEART OF VESUVIUS: Alexandria has no choice. She must flee to the last place she wants to. Straight into the arms of a vampire she was determined to forget. Salvator finds this a clever fix to obtaining the one woman he has always desired. Together, they must find a way to evade her powerful enemy, Salvator's brother Luciano. On the run, they struggle to understand one another. Denied passion ignites. Blood is spilled. When they're pulled back in time to first century Italy, dark, bittersweet secrets are revealed. It's up to Salvator and Alexandria whether or not their history becomes part of their future. All can be conquered. But will it be? Can wrongs be made right? History is the locked door. Forgiveness is the key. Time will tell if ageless love can once more flourish.

Faith Savage – Demon Huntress – K.A. M’Lady

Faith – No More?

Did you know there is no specific verse in the Bible that lists that a third of the Angels fell from Heaven?  And yet, how many of us believe in this occurrence?   From the book of Revelations to the Catholic Encyclopedia, to the Book of Moses, and even the Dead Sea Scrolls, there have been various references throughout recorded time of the War in Heaven and Satan's origin as a fallen angel of light.  So, even with all of these accounts of angels and demons, God and the devil, and Heaven and hell, one might still ponder, ‘who do the un-believers pray to when their hope is at its end and there is no light to be found within the darkness?

The thing about Faith and its enduring light is: you can’t hold it, and you can’t see it and yet, since the beginning of time, Satan and his fallen have used its lack and mankind’s disbelief and uncertainty to their dark advantage.  The Old Testament bears witness to Jesus ‘casting out devils from unfortunate men (Mark 5:1-13).  Relics, icons and archaic texts from ancient Egypt to China’s Great Wall and on to Mesopotamia, all bear a history, a mystery and their own dark monsters. But are these monsters myths or actual accounts of demons and their continued plight against man? 

As the Bible nears its end and precursors to end-times prophesy continue, more talk of the great tribulation occurs.  Revelations 12:9 describes how Michael – the archangel warred in heaven with the dragon, and the dragon was cast unto earth.  Some scholars wonder when the war was or if it has even yet begun.  One thing is clear, no matter what you have read, or what you do or do not believe in, history has been written and will be written again.  But the question remains – When the darkness comes, what will you believe in?

Got Faith?  

Faith Savage: Book 1


Longer than time, eternal angelic wars have been fought throughout the Heavens -- God's mighty warriors vying for supremacy over Lucifer and his brethren's fall from grace.

Today that war continues, spreading among God's chosen.

My name is Faith Savage, I hunt Demons. I have been to the edge of reason. Spoken with evil and walked the corridors of Hell's dark paths.

To survive the darkness, I made a deal with an angel. But my decision may cost me the one thing most precious to me...

Faith Savage: Book 2
Fear No Evil

In the beginning, peace reigned in the Heavens. But when God created man in his image, the love, once held in the hearts of His beautiful angels, changed. Some of God's chosen grew jealous of man and envious of each other. Treachery and villainy spread like a plague. War erupted in the Heavens. Blood was spilled in the House of the Lord.

When the fallen were cast from God's Glory, they vowed to spread the taint of their darkness throughout mankind--spreading their evil and debauchery amongst the innocent like the flood of corruption and sin that it has become today. They swore never to rest until all men rotted in the fires of Hell. Vowed that in the end, rivers would run red, animals would rot in blackened pastures and the earth would become the very essence of the Valley of Death.

My name is Faith Savage, I hunt Demons. I've been to the edge of death--looked in the eyes of darkness. Seen what's on the other side.

Though I may walk through the Valley of Death--I Shall Fear No Evil.

Faith Savage Book 3

For the humans, the veil between Heaven and Hell, Light and Darkness, grows thinner with each night's passing. On earth the fallen have spread their dark army far into the city of man. In the shadows, the weary tremble and the weak are overtaken.

For the few who walk the dark mile on the trail of suffering's madness, they alone know the strength of a whispered prayer. Because sometimes, even darkness' wrath and hatred can learn to bow before a spirit's faith.

My name is Faith Savage, I hunt Demons. I know that even the strong and righteous suffer the weight from a world filled with sin. For in the end, it is the true believers who know that a loving God forgives you your transgressions.

Faith Savage Book 4:
When Angels Fall

In the beginning peace reigned in the Heavens and a chorus of angels sang their praise to the Lord. But there was one who coveted God’s power, His beauty and His grace. With desire came rebellion. Violence ensued and corruption followed. For the first time in creation blood was spilled amongst God’s mighty.

Throughout time there are those who have said that in the darkness where cold truths and the ugliness of iniquity reign, evil rides the shadows of vanity’s wants and desire’s yearnings. That temptation began as a whispered kissed. That even God’s mighty Angels were not immune to the devil’s corruption.

Today some say it’s best to leave the shadows to themselves and let the night have its madness for in the end only the Light of the Spirit can see a soul’s true worth. But what happens when the Heaven’s bleed and an Angel’s will is broken? What happens when the truth is immersed in darkness and those, once pure of heart, have no one to call on and nothing left to defend?

My name is Faith Savage – I know what it is to be stalked by darkness. To look in the eye of madness and know you’ve no one to call as friend. It is here, on this dark path to inhumanity and the search for redemption, that I hunt demons. Because when Angels fall only the Light will show the way for the damned to meet their end.

Faith Savage Book 5 
The Ash Collector

In the beginning, God created man in his image; from dust and ash, hope was cast.

Yet, as far as time remembers, in the scrolls of history’s past, it was written that woman brought temptation to the garden. Woman introduced death unto man. But have you forgotten about the trickster? Was mortal destruction not his master plan?

There are those who say death is a celebration. One soul’s defiant, heavy passing; another’s gentle ease into the Light. Commemorations for the departed. Forgiveness of old transgressions. A final rest for pity, the end to immortal strife. But is death just the beginning? And who comes to collect you when you pass?

What happens to the worthy if the Light turns against them? Do they stand their ground – Stay and fight? What about those who seek no forgiveness? Do the deceiver’s minions scurry from the darkness? Come and collect their next eternal victim? Is everlasting damnation the deceased’s future plight?

My name is Faith Savage. I know what it is to walk the dark shadows at the edge of destruction. To feel the presence of The Collector in the night. I know what it is to bleed the dust of life’s possibilities, to sift through the ash of mankind’s hopes and dreams. To seek the evil that makes souls rot. It is here in this impossible darkness that I hunt demons, searching for my own answers and retributions, in the battle for the Light.

Faith Savage Book 6:
Wicked's Kiss

Some Hungers Burn Hotter Than Hell...

There are those who say that we are all God’s children. That the Blood of Christ released us from sins. But there are others that hold to the original sins. Temptations purchased for a copper, a penny, a fine golden coin. Even the priests bought and sold lies with the silver kisses of thieves; might cost you a stoning – ten pence for a whore.

Some have written that from a garden God created the first cast-off demon; a viper feigned in the guise of a woman. Her kisses, once given, led to eternal damnation. And, from one sacred garden to our Christ’s last temptation, a kiss by the wicked brought about mankind’s salvation. Bought and paid for by greed, perhaps even envy – all impugnable transgressions.

But when is a kiss just a kiss in the game of redemption? What price does a man pay for the ultimate betrayal? Is the cost greater than the price of his soul?

My name is Faith Savage. When dealing with matters of faith, God, religion and demons, I’ve found there are no easy answers. I’ve stumbled my way through Hell’s treacherous dark byways seeking God and the answers to these and many other questions. I’ve learned that nothing is as it seems when dealing with demons and Angels. And sometimes, love and faith creates just another way to burn.

Faith Savage Book 7

It was written that each soul would have a Guardian. A Warrior of Light to watch over it. Protect it. Be its shield against the darkness, its sword against the fallen. But the days grew dark. Man’s souls darker still. Many turned away from the Light of God, cast aside His word and His love. And the Guardians rebelled.

Some say that this was his second transgression. What led to his ultimate betrayal. Others say that he too was but pawn in God’s glorious manipulation. A means to an end of man’s dark days. One thing is certain, only God knows the truth of his story. Only He knows a soul’s true worth and its fate.

My name is Faith Savage. In this game of good and evil I’ve met the Guardian that God sent me. His story I am just beginning to learn. His history, I am told, has marked him as damned. But, everyone knows Christ died for the sinners. The only question that remains is, could we forgive him if we controlled his fate?

KA M'lady spends her days calculating life expectancies, mortality and the certainty of death and taxes while in her free time the dead wander freely, buy shoes, homes, the occasional odd business or two and, if you even think of charging them too much in taxes…well, let’s just say the tax man may never come back. But if he does he might just shamble a bit.

An All Romance eBooks bestselling author, K.A. M'lady's work has been described as scary, descriptive, beautiful, dark, frightening, prosaic, addictive, sexy and believable.

—Darynda Jones, NY Times Bestselling Author

–Publishers Weekly

Let’s Interview!

What inspired you to write this book?

I was intrigued by the short, fierce, and uncompromising Terriot prince who appeared in name only in an earlier book in my “By Moonlight” series to threaten that book’s hero’s gentle cousin Kendra with a forced mating in order for to save her family and him to claim his clan’s crown.  The Terriots, unlike the disorganized clan of shape-shifter in New Orleans, were brutal warriors who took what they wanted and wanted whatever they saw. And Cale wanted Kendra. Then I got wondering what kind of past would draw two such unlikely opposites together.  That was explored in PRINCE OF SHADOWS. When they had their happily-ever-after, I felt things were still unresolved. There was too much bad blood between their family and too much guilt over deeds done for them to settle down comfortably to rule their clan. And then Cale gets a call from Kendra’s cousin asking for his help . . .

How did you come up with the title?

Thinking up unique yet similar words to go into a series title gets complicated. UNLEASHED seemed perfect for this story because it’s about letting go of the past as well as regrets and restraints. And, when he’s fighting there’s that control collar on my dog of war.

 If you had to sell your book based on one run of dialogue (start quote to end quote), which would it be?

"Don't make the mistake of thinking I'm not in control. Those who have in the past regret that error. Those few still alive.  I am a Terriot king. I am never weak when strength is demanded. You'd be a fool to believe otherwise."  - Cale Terriot, House of Terriot  

Tell us about your book cover and how it relates to your story.

UNLEASHED BY SHADOWS is my second self-published book out of 58 (!) so developing the cover was as important to me as writing the story.  It had to be just right.  I was looking for something that would blend with the other covers in the series but standout at the same time. After spending hours and hours looking at “sexy male torso” graphics, I finally found one that represented both the driven and the softer side of my hero. But my graphic artist, Patricia Lazarus, who has done tons of great stuff for me, wasn’t sure the dimensions would work for the cover. So, back to torsos . . . We both kept coming back to the mysterious figure in the hoodie, but I still wasn’t sold until she worked up both graphics and I knew that was the one. I got her to compromise by using the other as the back cover and in my promo and book trailer. Best of both worlds!

Are you currently working on another story? If so, we’d love some details.

I’m putting together a novella series called “The House of Terriot Foursome.”  Once you meet Cale’s hot stuff brothers, you’ll understand why. Their conflicts are set up in UNLEASHED and it was hard for me to concentrate on doing edits with their individual storylines distracting me.  I can’t wait to get to them.

Tell us about your favorite writing environment. Is it indoors, outdoors, a special room, etc.

I have a loft office in my apartment dedicated to my craft (and my reading/writing clutter). I hit the computer every morning at 5:00 a.m., armed with my Keurig coffee, and tackle my work-in-progress until I have to leave for my 9-to-5. 

I’d lost steam writing UNLEASHED BY SHADOWS and took a break to visit one of my critique partners who lives in Arizona.  Borrowing her desk for a week, looking out over desert creatures at sunrise as they came to get water and food right outside the window was just what I needed to revitalize. Talk about inspiration! I think I wrote five chapters while I was there. Environment is everything when it comes to creativity!

It’s time to promo. What is your favorite marketing tool?

I actually LOVE doing promo.  I’m OCD so organizing and list making is my thing. I enjoy wading into the planning process, setting up blog visits, creating content for playlists and book trailers, doing the back cover copy, hunting for those elusive graphics—the whole enchilada.  Example: my Haunted Open House Book Party that’s going on this week.  That’s a lot to put together along with a self-pubbed book! Thank goodness for my virtual assistant, the Novel Difference, for taking my ideas to fruition.  I’m an idea person, so I guess my favorite tool is the mighty list to follow.
Do you write books in series? If so, share a bit about the series you currently have published or are coming soon.

My “By Moonlight” dark paranormal shape-shifter series started with the book of my heart and a fabulous hero in the dark, dangerous and yet still vulnerable Max Savoie. Once I started, I was in the middle of book four before I came up for breath. Those books were unique in that they contain the same hero and heroine—Max, bodyguard to a mobster and possible Prophesied One to an outcast Shifter clan in New Orleans and NOPD detective Charlotte Caissie who is determined to bring down his boss/mentor. The series branched off from there into the “Shadows” books developing secondary characters and the same underlying story arc while exploring new plotlines.  Readers hounded me to bring Max back in his own book, which I did with REMEMBERED BY MOONLIGHT and when Cale, my hero in PRINCE OF SHADOWS, appeared in it, he started to run off with the book so I had to promise him more of his story in UNLEASHED BY SHADOWS.  Though the books are all intertwined, each can stand alone.

If you could make changes to a story you’ve already written, which would it be and why?

I’ve gotten the unique opportunity to revisit the books in my “Touched by Midnight” vampire romance series.  The first three of the nine book series are finally back in print after being buried in the ‘90s. ImaJinn Books, who picked up the original series with books 4-9, is repackaging all the books with new covers (which I’ve gotten to help design!) and a chance for me to spruce up my prose.  The first three were hardly edited at all and there were a lot of glaring errors as well as passive “was”s and bouncing point of view. It was the ‘90s, after all, and we didn’t know any better!  It gave me a chance to fall in love with the series all over again.  Book 4, MIDNIGHT ENCHANTMENT is a late October rerelease.

I was able to do the same when Bell Bridge, another imprint of BelleBooks, reissued my four Dana Ransom contemporary romances, providing them to a whole new audience.

I’m hoping to self-publish my old Dana Ransom western historical series next year, so that gives me lots of books (and torsos) to play with! 

Excerpt from UNLEASHED BY SHADOWS . . .Cale

He feared no man, no foe, no obstacle or challenge. He’d learned to stand his ground and take it without a wince while growing up with the most to prove in the House of Terriot. He’d been schooled beneath the heavy heel and meaty fists of Bram Terriot, bearing the marks of those lessons scored into his skin and once tender psyche. He understood intimidation better than he did compassion. Had once indulged in every savagery Lee now expected from him. Would have become a brutal, heartless monster walking the same path his father followed had it not been for the two things that called to his latent decency: The brothers who’d fearlessly stood beside him and the female brave enough to believe his claims.

He owed them. He owed his family prosperous lives without fear and subjugation, where pride wasn’t measured in cruelties. He owed the woman he loved the fulfillment of promises made by a starry-eyed boy. He owed them a future in which they bowed to no one and had no reason to expect the worse from one another. And to achieve those things, all he had to do was right the wrongs of the man who’d desecrated the crown he now represented.
All . . .
With a weary laugh, Cale closed his eyes.
His debt. His burden. His to carry and complete alone. No whining about the costs to body, heart or soul. No crying over what couldn’t be changed, repaid or repaired. No shirking from sacrifices sure to cost more than he’d ever thought to wager. The blood on his hands would never come clean. There was no forgiveness for his sins—the sins of the father now those of the son. He was lost but he wouldn’t drag those he loved and respected down with him. Not while he still had strength and breath and opportunity.
He couldn’t save his people hiding on their mountain top. He couldn’t purge his guilt without a willingness to surrender his life.
And he couldn’t protect his mate if he couldn’t provide her with his heir.

Historical Fantasy Romance. Dragon Song by Tara West.

Today it’s my pleasure to feature Dragon Song by amazingly talented author, Tara West. Sit back, relax and learn more about this awesome historical fantasy romance!


Duncan MacQuoid, dragonslayer, is no more. In his place is a tortured man seeking solace for his sins. One fateful night he finds a woman he believes will be his salvation. Little does he know, his love for her could be his final undoing.

Fiona Firesblood, dragon-shifter and noble queen, will stop at nothing to protect her child, even if it means she must sever the bond with her mate, Duncan MacQuoid, the one man she loves above all others, and the one man whose past could destroy them all.

Safina Firesblood, daughter of a cursed union between dragon and dragonslayer, has grown into a young woman, a powerful dragon princess in her own right. She’s given one chance at true love; will she risk the dragon queen’s wrath or resign herself to an eternity of sorrow?

“Murderer!” She shoved him back with such force, he toppled from the bed in a tangle of furs. 

“Fiona, ’tis me, Duncan,” he cried as he struggled to stand.

What had come over her? One moment they were caressing beneath the warm furs, and the next she had sprung from his bed, screaming like a banshee.

“I know who you are, MacQuoid. Dragonslayer!” She ended on a shrill sob before covering her face with her hands.

Duncan stood, kicking the furs to the side and reaching for her. “I am a dragonslayer no more, Fiona.”

“Why did you make love to me? You should have killed me like you did the rest of my kind.” She rushed through the flap of his tiny hut into the cool morning air.

Swearing under his breath, Duncan wrapped a fur around his waist and chased after her. 

Surely they had both gone mad.

The morning was exceptionally cold, and Fiona wore not a stitch of clothes. A chill wind from the north whipped the heavy branches overhead into a frenzy. Autumn leaves danced around Fiona’s feet as she wept, kneeling beside a fallen oak. 

The sharp edge of her suffering pierced the cavity of Duncan’s chest. He still did not understand how her emotions had been tethered to his own, but he did feel her pain, so keen he thought his heart would break from it.  

“Fiona, you are mistaken. Come inside where ’tis warm,” he pleaded.

She looked up at him through tear-soaked eyes. “You killed my mother!” Her body shook with violent tremors. “You struck her with a spear, and she had never sought to harm mankind. Never!”

Duncan’s head spun and he felt weightless. Mouth agape, he stared at her, hoping his senses would return. And then the words from the she-dragon reverberated through his skull.

I have never sought to harm mankind. Never!

“’Twas a dragon I speared, not a human.” But even as he said the words, he knew ’twas a lie. That dragon had been no dumb beast. She was something more.

“She was my mother!” Fiona wailed. “She was kind and good and all I had left in the world.”

“Fiona,” Duncan struggled for words, knowing nothing he could say would ever bring back her mother. “Forgive me.” Stepping forward, he reached out, needing to touch her and soothe her pain.

“Do not touch me! Do not ever touch me!”

What happened next Duncan would not have believed had he not seen the she-dragon transform into a beautiful woman each night in his dreams.

But those were dreams, and the dragon hovering above him now was no fantasy, though just a moment before she had been his beautiful lass.

Panting like a wounded animal, she singed his hair with her fiery breath. 

Duncan did not cower. He did not fear. They had shared a connection when he loved her beneath the light of the full moon. She would not harm him now.  

He looked up into her amber eyes, which were the same as last night, only larger, sadder. ’Twas then he knew neither of them would come away from this unscathed. For her heart was shattered, and he did not know how he could live without her forgiveness.

ARe Books

Genre: M/F, Werewolves, PNR 

About the Book

Best way to tame a bad wolf? Be a little wicked yourself…

Carmen finds it hard to trust—then again, her father went mad and had to be put down by her current Alpha. Carmen might hold a position of power within the pack, but part of her always wonders if they could turn on her as quickly as they did him. When she finds a man who she’s pretty sure the current Alpha failed on a lot of levels, she decides to take matters into her own hands and prove Dara isn’t as perfect of an Alpha as everyone thinks.

Seth lost his mate, but he survived. He can’t stand to watch other wolves happily carrying on with their lives and mates after he’d failed to protect his own. Dara allows him his privacy and ensures that he survives, even if there are days when he wishes otherwise. When one headstrong and opinionated she-wolf decides she’s going to end the unique hell of his isolation, Seth has to make a choice…

Kick her butt to the curb or answer the call to claim her. But can he dare claim another mate when he knows he failed once to be the man his mate needed?

The stink of humans slathered in too much cologne and perfume competed with the smell of open beers and possible promiscuity in a cloud of inevitable shame—at least to Seth. He wasn’t sure why he still bothered to come down from his hill to visit the dance hall, but it was a ritual he practiced on one specific night of every year.

“Seth!” called Alex Jewel. “Good to see you, man.”

Seth grunted and nodded as he passed over the cover charge. “’Sup, buddy?”

“Not much. Haven’t seen you in ages. How the hell have you been?”

With a shrug, Seth headed past him and down the hall that led to the bar and dance floor. The ritual must be completed exactly for him to feel satisfied, which meant one beer on the outside patio, one inside, then he could go home.

Not that fulfilling the pattern actually made him feel any better at the end of the day. Still...

He ordered the first beer and headed outside with it. Few were out on the patio, but then again that was typical, too, for this time of year. Only the really dedicated smokers or secret lovers looking for a quiet dark spot would bother to brave the humid, still summer air—filled with tiny and annoying biting bugs—to sit outside.

Watching a single large-wing katydid perched on the fence helped him pass the time. He ignored the humans with their clouds of smoke and lust. The katydid busily cleaned his wings while Seth sipped the beer. It wasn’t as cold as he preferred, and he never drank this brand any other time of the year, but that, too, was part of the tradition.

Soon, his beer had been emptied and the katydid had flown to do whatever important insect tasks awaited him in the darkness.

Heading back inside, Seth caught the scent of a wolf and scanned the dance floor to see if he recognized whoever it might be.

He pinpointed the direction of the aroma to be near the stage, which meant the smell must be coming from one of two women dancing near the speakers. He couldn’t help the half smile the sight brought him. One of the women wore silver leg braces, yet danced with carefree abandon and a smile. Her movements might be restricted by her obviously weak legs, yet her joy flowed as effervescent as anyone else’s in the room, if not more. Next to her dark haired beauty, her dance partner looked particularly mundane. The other woman had boy-short blonde hair and seemed just as happy. Something about the pair caught his wolf’s attention, but he wasn’t sure what other than the fact it was good to see an obviously crippled woman having a good time with a friend.

Shrugging off the oddity, he moved to the bar to order the second ritual beer. Once he had it in hand, he headed for the small booth at the back of the dance hall as per routine. From there, however, he broke the pattern a bit. Instead of staring at the Elvis cut-out hanging on the wall below a clock with only fives—because it was always five o’clock somewhere—he watched the girls dancing.

At one point, the blonde went and got them both drinks, so they backed away from the dance floor to cool off then went right back to dancing. His wolf stirred again, but he disregarded it. But then the blonde looked in his direction, a flash of yellow in her eyes. His wolf more than stirred at the glance, practically clawing him from the inside. Unsettled, he stood to leave. He’d finished the beer and therefore the dance hall portion of the ritual.

At the door, someone caught his arm. “Hey, do I know you?”

About the Author

Virginia Nelson, USA Today bestselling author, likes knights in rusted and dinged up armor, heroes that snarl instead of croon, and heroines who can’t remember to say the right thing even with an author writing their dialogue. Her books are full of snark, sex, and random acts of ineptitude—not always in that order.
