The Blue Octopus Troubles Returneth

Truly, this could be a short story! So I return the 3 blue octopuses that were not what I ordered, and got a note yesterday from Amazon saying that I was being charged for one that wasn’t returned, and what they were charging me for was more than the refund they gave me because they cheated me out of my refund to begin with!

So I was back on the chat again, trying to get it straightened out. Yes, all three ugly blue octopuses had been received. Wow, what are they trying to pull anyway??? And yes they refunded me for a different teapot that was less expensive and they owed me $8.13. They would give me $8. Does that sound screwy or what? And besides that, they applied it toward another item that I didn’t need a refund for, something entirely different.

And they still probably shorted me on the amount. Sheesh.

So I made a video for my first vampire romantic suspense, and am working on the ones for the others in the story, revamping my webpage, and redoing 3 more covers. Another is done, but I still need to work on 3 more, and then I’ll make some fun videos for each of them. I made two more yesterday for others.

When I was thirteen, my mother took me to see Dracula, a play at a local community college, and I fell in love with the count. He deserved to love and be loved in return. That’s how I felt. Poor guy.

In this story, the huntress is NOT falling for the vampire… But there’s a twist. Oh, and I worked at Fort Hood where she’s stationed, so some of the places she’s at, I was at.

Okay, I’ve got to get to writing. I have edits on You Had Me at Jaguar due on Friday, baby will be here two days a week now until next summer, and I’m still trying to reach the end on the Silver Town wolf book. I am having fun watching the birds too–there are three red-bellied woodpeckers flying back and forth to the feeder, I saw two hummingbirds yesterday, a monarch butterfly, a number of blue jays, and a family of cardinals are all over the place this morning. I’m in fairy bird heaven.

Killing the Bloodlust cover new blue swords2 with font 2000

ISBN: 9781458006721

Crystal Anderson is unique, a huntress who is unable to kill vampires without getting emotionally involved. So when a vampire targets her to be his mate–she’s got to change her tune, or become the creature she’s supposed to kill. Hunter Robert Parker is in Texas to take down the vampire that murdered his sister. When he runs into Crystal, his priorities become something much more grave.

Army officer Crystal Anderson can’t help the draw she has to vampires, although she’s supposed to be drawn to them to kill those who are renegades since she’s a born huntress. But something about her is different. Ostracized from her family, she lives precariously on her own. That is until a local vampire targets her. Then she meets a fellow Army officer Robert Parker–who she believes is one of them–a vampire or blood host, or something. Suddenly, nothing is the same.Army officer Robert Parker is on assignment at Fort Hood, Texas, trying to track down the vampire who murdered his sister after hours. When he spies Crystal coming out of a vampire house, he assumes she’s a human host, and that she can lead him to his murderer. Except he’s drawn to her like a hunter would be to a huntress, until he learns she’s not quite right. She’s fighting alone without a family of hunters’ support, and he’s bound to do something about it before she gets herself killed…or worse.

Determination Wins!

Killing the Bloodlust cover new blue swords2 with font 2000

I finally created the cover I love for one of my vampire huntress novels. 🙂

And I finally managed to put my desk chair together, after a struggle. And one piece is a duplicate of another, so it needs a different piece. Emailed them last night and hopefully I’ll get the right one soon–which reminds me of blue octopuses. Oh, and yes, the chair is wonderful. It killed me to sit in that other and I had to write on my laptop on a recliner after a short while of working at my desk. I write for hours, or try to, so I needed a chair that was comfortable.

I put the glider together so I can rock baby to sleep . She will be here tomorrow, so I wanted to get that done. She will be here two days a week starting next week and through until next summer. Which means I have to write and write and write to finish this book soon. Getting there!

So I’m off to write!!! Hope your day exceeds your expectations!

Hot Vampires! Heart of the Huntress Series!

Fantasy Landscape

My first love of vampires was about Count Dracula, a play at Brevard Community College when I was thirteen and my mother took me to see it. We went to a pre-showing so they could work out all the kinks. The “fog” disappeared before the Count slipped into the floor. Count Dracula tripped over a rug twice, trying not to react to the annoying interference and keep up with his lines, but we were all laughing and he smiled the second time. Bats flew over our heads. And we had the most fun. But I was ready to offer my neck to the suave vampire, and always felt he deserved to be loved too.

But I am reasonable. My huntresses have powers of their own, fight-worthy ability, changed at the same time that vampires were during the Black Death, but just weren’t changed in the same ways that the vampires were.  It’s their calling to take down the rogues. And vampires can’t control their will like they can humans. It just wouldn’t be fair. If a huntress is going to fall for a vampire, she has to do it because she just can’t resist him as a man, not because of some hypnotic power he has. That helps to level the playing field. And I couldn’t imagine falling in love with a cold dead thing, so my vampires are hot, alive, and just live longer than most.

Deadly Liaisons is a reissue, but I’ve tied in the four vampire novels, Killing the Bloodlust (book 1), Huntress for Hire (book 2), Forbidden Love (book 3), and Deadly Liaisons (book 4) and am working on Dangerous Liaisons, (Book 5) in the Heart of the Huntress Series.  They’re about huntresses with a dark past and the hunter or vampires that turn their worlds upside down.

In the first, Killing the Bloodlust, that’s based at Fort Hood where I worked as a brand new second lieutenant. Some of what happened to her, happened to me. Staff duty, the army swimming pool qualification training–and other things, no vampires or hunters though–but it was fun to turn real life experiences into an urban fantasy world.

In Deadly Liaisons:

Overview

He resisted the dark huntress…now he’ll use all his powers to make her his own.

Tezra Campbell treads a dangerous line between her job as a telepathic investigator for the Hunter Council and her alternate life as a renegade. Beneath her cool, professional exterior lies a dark obsession to find the rogue vampire who murdered her parents ten years ago and left her sister a traumatized shell. An obsession that drives her to use herself as bait.

Daemon, former bastard prince of Scotland and now head of the American vampire clans, sees Tezra as a danger to herself and to his people. Especially if the killer vampire takes her bait. Concerned his own brother might be accused of the crime, Daemon takes Tezra into custody, intending to keep her out of the way so he can find the killer himself.

Things don’t work out the way either planned. The more she fights him with her telepathic powers, the more she stirs up his sexual bloodlust–the kind only a mate can cool. And Tezra begins to wonder…is her desire for him real, or just a way to use Daemon to find the murderer?

It’s a deadly game they both aim to win–even while they try to keep their hearts intact.

We had days of rain while I was revising the books, perfectly moody for the vampire world. Don’t you agree?

Vampires will never die. I loved them as a kid, and still do.
