Excerpt


Otis entered the room and sat down beside him. “Why you looking at the money like that? Isn’t it enough?
“It’s enough.” Hunter snatched the money off of the table. Placing it in his pocket, he looked over to the door that led to Tony’s office. “What went on in there?” he asked.
Otis shrugged. “Talking about packing up shop and taking this dog and pony show further north.”
Hunter looked at Otis, shocked. Why was Tony thinking of leaving Arcata? And where would they go? Business was good. All he had to do was start taking girls from another state, and HQ could remain here.
Was it his fault the boss wanted to leave? That detective did come to his house, question him, and promise to return. No one else in the group had been questioned. “He can’t stay here and send us up north?”
Otis turned around to face him. “Kid, are you insane?”
Hunter snarled at the man for calling him kid, and Otis chuckled.
“Cute.” Otis leaned back in the chair and propped his feet up. “We’ve filled the order for Hickston, and now that the detective was at your place asking about one of the girls we have, we can’t risk staying much longer.” He shrugged and pulled an envelope from his pocket.
“When’s he leaving?” Hunter stood and went to the window. It was dark as hell out, but he could still see the beach and sparkling waves from where he stood.
“A week, after the merchandise is gone.”
“That soon?” Hunter glanced back at Otis, who was counting his money. When he was done—evidently satisfied with the amount—he placed the money back in the envelope and looked back up at Hunter.
“It’s a week longer than he wants to stay, but it’s not easy getting nine stolen girls on a plane,” Otis murmured. “It was easy to get them here, but now that they are considered missing, we have to be extra careful in transporting them.” Otis put his money back in his pocket.
“That girl.” He leaned back and closed his eyes. “The one with the pretty eyes, who smells like cherries and vanilla,”
“What about her?” Hunter asked. His mind was still on the move that Tony had planned but hadn’t told him about. Was the boss planning on leaving him, or was Otis supposed to tell him about it?
“I want her.” Hunter turned to Otis and frowned. What did he want with some kid? Yeah, she was pretty, but was she worth the problems she could create for them?
“She’s probably not worth the trouble,” Hunter muttered.
Otis’s husky chuckle vibrated around the room. The look in his eyes told Hunter that he disagreed and was definitely going to pursue the girl.
“Now, that’s where you’re wrong.” Otis stood and stretched. He ran his hands through his blond hair and put his hand over his heart. “I love a challenge. Makes the blood taste so much sweeter. Plus, I consider her a loose end, and since we’ve filled our order…” He licked his lips and rubbed his hands together in anticipation. “She is fair game, and I call dibs.”
He smiled so widely that Hunter shook his head and shrugged.
“One girl can’t be that exciting, Otis.” Hunter wasn’t interested in the girl at all. He’d gotten his fill of blood from Tony.
Otis patted his pocket in search for his cigarettes. “I can imagine my fangs sinking into her soft flesh, the gasps of pain and pleasure from my bite, the way she’d either fight or fall into my arms.” He groaned at the thought. “I’ve been so busy collecting girls that I haven’t had the chance to choose a girl to my own liking.”
Hunter shrugged. He still didn’t believe that the girl was worth it. Otis could feel that way for any human he fed on. Why did it have to be this girl?
“Hunter.” Otis strolled over to him. “You are still a kid, new to the Chorý world. You’ve never had to hunt for your food; it is always readily available to you through Tony and girls that don’t mind being food. The thrill of the hunt is riveting, and once you experience it, you’ll never give it up.
“Whatever.” Hunter pulled his gaze from his partner and back to the surf. “This move to the north, did it include me?” he asked, getting back to the conversation he really wanted to have.
Otis leaned against the window, entering Hunter’s personal space. He pulled a clove-laced cigarette from the pack and lit it.
“Is that what you’re worried about, baby brother?” Otis smiled, flashing his fangs. Laughter creased his face. “Being left behind? Well, let me ease your mind; if you weren’t coming with, you would have never known that we were leaving.”
He took a puff of the cigarette and blew it over Hunter’s head. “I have an idea. I’m going to take you on a hunt with me. I’d like to check out where my girl lives.” Otis pushed away from the window and grabbed his keys from the table.
His long legs and powerful gait had him at the door in seconds, leaving Hunter to jog across the office to meet him at the door. “How are you going to find out where she lives?”

Otis chortled again. They exited the building, but instead of heading to Otis’s car they headed in the direction of the detention center where they had stored the merchandise.

Our Review

Wow ! What a great read really enjoyed this story.This is a first time author for me and I really enjoyed this story and I am looking forward to reading the rest of the books in its series.

I found this story to be very fast paced and intriguing  and as soon as I started reading this story I couldn't put the book down until I was finished it .Another sleepless night for me yet again...Not that I mind (smiles)

I really enjoyed the main characters of the story with Sola and Kale they made the perfect couple even though it wasn't a romantic one just a loving and deep friendship kind.Kale is pining for a loved one that he has lost centuries ago and has never really gotten over her.We experience his pain and suffering.He has had a hard life never really coming to terms with the whole vampire thing and also being hunted by the council hasn't improved his mood. He is lost until he finds Sola and things start to lighten up a bit.

Sola and Kale come together when he goes undercover working at her fathers company to find out who is stealing young girls and selling them as blood slaves. Sola gets caught up in this nasty business and its up to Kale to save her.But, how will she reacted when she learns who he really is ?

This story takes his through a bunch of twists and turns keeping  our interest and passing the pages with a fever.We learn more of Kales past and we grieve for him as we learn about his journey and about his century of searching for the mate he lost so long ago.I believe that Sola's kind heart helped heal him at least just a little.They would have made the perfect couple if he could have let go of the past.The couple seemed to be okay with just being friends and Kale eased Sola loneliness and also made her take a good look at her life thinking she needs to make some changes herself to insure her own happiness.

Wow! What a heart wrenching ending leaving us on pins and needles and so excited to read the next book in its series.I believe Mrs. Iversen his going to have a major hit with this series and we are wishing her much success.

This is a recommend read to all and I believe it belongs in my keeper pile.So looking forward to further installments in this series.
