Blurb:

LEGALLY UNDEAD cover(1)

A reluctant vampire hunter, stalking New York City as only a scorned bride can.

Elle Dupree has her life all figured out: first a wedding, then her Ph.D., then swank faculty parties where she’ll serve wine and cheese and introduce people to her husband the lawyer.

But those plans disintegrate when she walks in on a vampire sucking the blood from her fiancé Greg. Horrified, she screams and runs–not away from the vampire, but toward it, brandishing a wooden letter opener.

As she slams the improvised stake into the vampire’s heart, a team of black-clad men bursts into the apartment. Turning around to face them, Elle discovers that Greg’s body is gone—and her perfect life falls apart.

REVIEW:

Margo Bond Collins is my new favorite author! I haven’t picked up a vampire slayer book that I liked this much since the Anita Blake novels by Laurell K. Hamilton!

Ms. Collins knows how to write a “keep you coming back” series opener and has truly struck gold with Legally Undead! The combination of characters, living and undead, are a wonderful combination. The plot, a law firm involved with the working of the undead world, is fascinating. The heroine, Elle, walking in as her fiance’ is being turned by a vampire is quite possibly the most unlucky thing a girl could possibly walk in on.

Legally Undead is filled with humor, filled with sarcasm, and leaves this reader wanting more. I can’t wait for the next of the Vampirarchy Series by Margo Bond Collins.

I highly recommend you read Legally Undead and give is a glowing five stars!

VEILED TARGET

Veilers #1

Released July 22nd, 2014

Never take Fate along on a date. The kiss goodnight could be deadly.

Tracking down Veilers—non humans—is only a sideline for Tess Damon. Vengeance for her fiancé’s murder is her reason for living. But with two botched jobs on her record, if she fails to eliminate her next mark, she’s dead. She’s not afraid to die, but not before she gets even. Too bad fate has a really bad sense of humor.

Hugh Langston, a wolfen half shifter, lives to keep both humans and his pack safe. But when rogue humans kidnap his apprentice, his rescue mission is compromised by a hot-as-hell, kick-ass woman who makes him think only one thing: mine.

Tess tries to ignore her feelings, but temptation trips her up. Especially when Hugh figures out he’s her next target and forces her into an inconvenient alliance that tests all the laws against their attraction. Now, with the line between good and evil getting blurrier by the minute, it becomes clear Tess’s only hope of living to see another day—and finding a murderer—lies with the one man she’s supposed to kill.

“Cut the crap, Tess. Why were you following me?”
“How do you know I was following you?” Oops. She meant to say, “What makes you think I was following you?”
He gave a knowing smile—that looked ridiculously sexy rather than irritating. “I know you don’t want to insult my intelligence so let’s just say for argument’s sake, if you were following me, why would that be?”
At least she’d gotten him to change his tone.
“Truthfully?” She leaned a little closer to him. She couldn’t help it.
“That would be nice.”
“I’m really not a very nice person,” she announced.
“Neither am I.” He reached out and moved a strand of hair behind her ear.
Was he trying to confuse her? Because it was working. She’d nearly fallen into his hand before he pulled it away. He was indeed a very bad man.
“That’s good. I hate nice guys. So where does that leave us?”
“I haven’t got all night, Tess.” He lowered his chin, indicating—she presumed—he was growing tired of their banter.
She lifted an eyebrow. “No? That’s too bad. I’m a night owl. I can—”
“Answer my question before I haul you to your car over my shoulder.” His tone sent a little zing of pleasure right to the tips of her breasts.
“As if you could—” She was over his shoulder in one second flat. He moved swiftly, quietly and with superhuman strength. Uh oh. “Hey, put me down!”
He started down the alley, seemingly unbothered by her spastic attempts to get him to let her go. “You ready to walk and talk now?”
“Fine,” she conceded, although the view of his backside was pretty damn good.
When both feet securely hit the ground, she tugged down her dress and shifted the V-neck into place. He watched her squirm to put the rest of the material back where it belonged and his roving eyes heated her from the inside out.
“I followed you because I wanted to help.”
He started walking. “Do I look like I need help?” A little gleam—and major interest?—flickered in his sideways glance.
“Well, no. But I’m very capable and I didn’t feel like going home, so I decided there was no harm in making myself available to you should you need me.” She took a deep breath. It was time to put the question out there. “Did you know Dane is a—”
“Wolfen? Yeah I know.”
“How do you—”
He stopped and turned toward her with confusion and passion in his deep blue eyes. For several seconds he stared at her, like he was trying to get inside her head. Guess what she was thinking. “I’m the leader of the Night Runners,” he finally said.
She imagined he’d told her something he’d never told another human being before.
What the hell was she going to do now?

Adkins, Kimberly: Tesla’s Imprint

Tesla’s Imprint

by Kimberly Adkins

BBT Teslas Imprint Tour Banner copy

BLURB:

MEDIA KIT Tesla's Imprint CoverSome things just can’t be erased.

Simon’s visions of a little girl are the only memories he has. Like an imprint on his heart, the visions cling. Who is she? Who is he for that matter? Tracked and hunted across the world, and in possession of a device that sets him apart from time and space, danger follows him at each turn.

He never meant to drag Tess into his drama. But with one slow, seductive dance in a candlelit night­club, that’s exactly what he’s done.

Tesla’s own heritage is a mystery in itself. Born of wealth into a corporation with no paper trail, she’s called back to take the helm. But what’s the nature of the business she’s supposed to lead? And how does it connect her to Simon?

 4

EXCERPT:

Simon leaned with his back against the door. The metal was searing hot through his layers of clothing, but he barely reacted to the burn. He understood the feeling that flooded through his being, the sense that the young woman from the nightclub was just on the other side of the frame. It was false, of course. Once the device opened the slice it automatically detached and became inactive. When the door closed she was a world away.

What am I thinking? He firmly banged his head against the solid door, tacky with hot paint. When he’d told her he made a promise, he couldn’t have been more serious – and more disturbed by his reaction to the encounter in the night club than he cared to admit to himself.

What could he possibly have to offer such a beautiful young woman after a dance like the one they shared? God, he didn’t even know who he was. The only thing he could even be sure about was that he was in danger, all the time.

He had to learn the truth about his past and why he knew the things he did without remembering them. Until then, the only thing he could be is a shadow on the edge of society. Everyone was safer that way.

He replayed the way she felt in his arms, how she stood on her toes to kiss his chin with her irresistible lips. She felt familiar to him in a way he hadn’t experienced for what seemed like a lifetime. It didn’t matter, though. He couldn’t let it matter. She was halfway across the world now, and all the better for it.

…besides, he had work to do.

Ravenous

 BBT_Ravenous_Banner

BLURB:

Cover_RavenousSuffer the hunger.

Pia Blyton wants it all. A steady boyfriend, love and her independence. But to ignore her succubus nature is to welcome chaos. Every three days she must orgasm to feed. Bad sex isn’t an option. Stave off the hunger for too long and her demon side peeks out, and its tastes are much less discerning than hers.

One bad day, one wrong decision, and her demon takes control of her libido and kisses all her best intentions goodbye.

Brokenhearted and ashamed, Pia is dragged home to Lake City by Zur-Sin, a vampire her father paid to find her. Caught in a world where mortal desires are seen as a weakness, Pia needs to figure out how to protect her heart from her deepest longings.

EXCERPT:

Cooper had his hands so deep in his front pockets it looked as if they’d been swallowed. He stared at the closed bathroom door until finally, his gaze moved to me. “Why couldn’t he feed you?”

“He didn’t know the rules.”

The shifter heaved a big sigh. “Where are the keys to the restraints?”

I shook my head as if I hadn’t a clue.

“I’m a shifter if you haven’t guessed. We have pretty good hearing so I know you chained yourself.” He turned a slow circle and sniffed.

My demon was close to the surface as if we shared the same space. I tracked Cooper as he moved slowly around the room.

“I’m the best hunter in my pack. Zur-Sin had me follow your scent all over the place trying to find you.” He looked under the dresser. “Ever drive with your head out the window with a vampire behind the wheel of a sports car? When a bug hits you at that speed it could knock your eye out.”

I chuckled then clamped my mouth shut.

Cooper circled toward me. “You couldn’t have tossed it far since you’re chained up.” His gaze moved toward the edge of the mattress where it met the wall and my chained hand lay. He bent to look under the bed. I heard some scrambling and my bed bumped as he moved under me, until he came up with the key dangling in his hand. “Ta-da. I knew you couldn’t have thrown with your wrists chained.”

~ Excerpt ~

It was after midnight when Nick appeared at his mom’s bedside like a little phantom, still clutching his football pillow. His hair stuck up in little whorls and corkscrews. “Something woke me,” he said. “Sounds like someone walking around, up there.” He indicated the ceiling with a thrust of his chin. Ella came awake quickly, as only a worried parent can. “Let’s go take a look.” She climbed out of bed. “You go,” Nick said. “I’ll wait here.” He sat on the edge of her bed. She wanted to say okay, just stay here and let Mama handle it, but she was afraid if he didn’t sleep in his own room tonight, on their very first night, he might expect to sleep with her from now on. “I need you with me,” she said. “As backup.” Nick sighed. “Okay…but what if it’s a ghost? It’s an old house, it’s probably haunted.”
