#Featured “Blood Red Moon: Worlds of Fire Series” by Deborah A. Bailey

book cover

~~~

Out of the ashes, a new beginning…

When his family and most of their kind were destroyed by the Guild, Derek inherited the position of Vampire Lord. Alchemists held the keys to creating portals to other worlds, knowledge they passed down to phoenixes. Their utopian society was crushed when the Guild invaded, intending to unlock the powerful secrets phoenixes possess. Lovers Derek and Avani met the night their city was sacked and after the city succumbed, they were lost to each other.

Love will be resurrected in blood and fire…

Having lost her memory, Avani became a protégé of the Guild Master, conditioned by magic to believe shifters and vampires were evil. Eventually, she was made Seeker, tasked with finding the Vampire Lord in order to gain access to phoenixes.

When Derek finds Avani, he neutralizes the magic that’s kept her from remembering who she is. However, the Templars have almost certainly made a pact with the enemy of all supernatural creatures, in order to gain access to the portals. Only a phoenix can save the world from utter ruin now, but that was precisely the asking price…

Excerpt

As he studied me his eyes were more hazel than brown. And they showed me his raw desire. This was Derek desperate to reclaim me.

“You’re not hungry for blood right now, are you?” I asked.

He shook his head, then averted his eyes as though he was afraid of revealing too much. But I’d already seen and felt it. When he met my eyes again, his were darker. Mesmerizing, pulling me in so that I was unable to look away.

An intense vampire gaze burning into me, arousing me to the point where I gripped the edges of the towel I’d wrapped around me. If I said yes, we could be together now in the way that he hungered for.

The image of him running towards me flashed in my mind. The sunshine, the sound of the water lapping on the shore, the smell of the grasses and sweet flowers…all of it came back to me in that instant. His arms around me. His touch. His scent that reminded me of the fresh, comforting earth.

Another image cut into my mind. The Guild house…our plans to purge the vampires, finish them off…destroy the evil. It had to be done and that was our purpose.

Before I could stop it, a sob pushed its way up into my throat. I covered my mouth before I voiced it. He can’t know what you’ve done. He’ll never understand.

Derek gripped my shoulders. “What is it? Is the heart magic still—”

“I’m not the person I was back then. We’re not the same people.”

“I know that. But you and I are connected, Avani. We have a purpose.”

“I’ve been told that before.”

“That was a lie. This is real,” he said.

Celeste

My friends were stolen by the Fae. Their presence has been all but erased from the internet, and their absence was explained away to family and friends. Seeing the minds of grief-stricken parents completely altered drove home how dangerous the path I’m traveling is. Still, I won’t give up until I locate Elia and Roan. Even if the other member of our found family, Glenn, is too scared to act. Digging further into their disappearance, I use my magic and connections to seek knowledge and forge a relationship with the mysterious beings that have terrified me my entire life. Astral travel has opened my universe up. The teachers I’m forced to trust will be my ruin or a crash course in survival in the deadly realm I’m determined to breach.

 

Alun

I never imagined the silly witch with traces of Fae blood would end up being my mate. I’ll protect her at all costs, even against herself.
Bickering with the woman who comes into a power that rivals my own wakes more than my dormant emotions. Fire licks at my skin and races through my veins, engulfing us and fueling our muscles. The child of the Holly King has died, and the Summer Court will soon follow. I’m not sure the realm on the brink of civil war and destruction should be saved. If my mate doesn’t take the place of the fallen, the lands will go dark.
Threatened by our rise, we’re attacked by dark powers who have no idea the depths I’ll sink to in order to keep what’s mine safe.

~~~

EXCERPT

“I need proof,” Celeste whispered.

His mother turned her attention to him. “Al, take her to the Autumn court. But keep your distance.”

He reached out to his brother. Kheelan, I’ll be visiting your territory briefly. Pay no heed. I’m fulfilling one of the mother’s requests.”

And here, I’d hoped my younger brother was simply coming to visit me.

Alun smirked. Soon.

Clapping his hands, he ripped open the fabric of reality. He could see his brother with a tall, golden-skinned woman with curly green hair and black wings through the gap. If it wasn’t for her curved ears, he might’ve wondered if she truly was one of their kind. Leave it to Kheelan to find someone so unique. The two strolled through the forest alive with reds, oranges, and golds. His new sister’s red dress boasted a leaf pattern in the same fall motif. Kheelan looked like a proper gentleman for once in his green velvet suit with a white cravat. I suppose one must up their game when dating a Queen. Does that make him the King? Amused, he turned to Celeste. She drank in the couple like a dehydrated woman at an oasis.

“How do I know I can trust him?” Celeste whispered, never taking her gaze from the couple walking.

“Paranoid little thing, aren’t you?”

“Wise,” she countered.

“Like an old owl?” He arched a brow.

She narrowed her eyes, and he chuckled. He enjoyed her fire.  This was just the distraction he needed.

“Like a survivor,” she said.

“The one left standing, in the end, knows themselves inside and out. Can you say that?” It was a challenge. Her face hardened, and her spine straightened.

“I will,” she vowed. This was a commitment he could work with.

“We should start immediately.” A rectangle outlined in flames appeared, showing a glimpse of a forest made up of cool blues and greens.

“You first,” Celeste said stubbornly.  He laughed. She had no clue who he was. People kneeled and bowed at his feet.  He would enjoy breaking her down and building her up stronger. She would never make the same mistakes he did because he wouldn’t allow it. This was his chance at redemption. He’d be for her, what he never had; a guiding point, an anchor in a sea of confusing madness.

Shoot first, ask questions later.

Vashti Hunter is all about the job, and this is her last assignment. Once she takes out the vampire lord responsible for the deaths of her family, she can retire.

Not just any woman will do.

Tyrone Essex is a single vampire lord without an heir. He can’t be bothered with entanglements though his colleagues think otherwise. To appease his fellow lords, he applies for a contract wife but instead finds his mate. The woman invokes a hunger within him that hadn’t distracted him in decades. She’s dangerous, elusive prey which makes him want her more—all he has to do is outwit her in the game of secrets.

Fate brings the two together in a twisted sense of sexy humor at Tyrone’s club. They both have to dance around each other to make it work. Will the two navigate the land of black and white to the world of grays, or miss out on their destiny?

Hunter’s Creed is book six of the Paris in Springtime series. It’s a fun, sexy story with a little action about a hard-nosed assassin and an arrogant lord on their journey to love and passion.
