Duty meets desire . . .

Mercy O’Malley hates killing people. So when she’s assigned to take out Vampire-Demon Logan Kyllwood, she lures him to a seedy bar in Scotland, then decides to kidnap him instead. How can she cold-bloodedly end all that heat, those green eyes, that ripped body?

Unfortunately for Mercy, attempted murder and kidnapping are just foreplay for the Kyllwood brothers. Logan may be the youngest of the bunch, but death and violence are already a way of life. Now he’s ready to complete a painful, terrifying ritual to become one of the Seven, dedicated to protecting this world from the most dangerous evil it’s ever known. But first he has to deal with a blackmailing Fey, a ransom demand and his own pounding need for the last female he ever should have fallen for . . .

When you first started writing about the Dark Protectors, did you want it as a series?

I really did want the books to be a series, because I love getting lost in a series and then visiting the characters whenever a new book comes out, so I figured I’d write what I wanted to read.  I hadn’t quite anticipated there would be ten stories (seven novels and three novellas) when I wrote Fated, however.  I’m glad it worked out this way. 

Is there a chance of a spin-off series from the Dark Protectors?

You bet there’s a chance of a spin-off series!  I was asked this a few times at the Authors After Dark convention this year, and I do think there are a couple of opportunities for new trilogies featuring the vampires, the witches, or shifters.  If readers want more of the Dark Protectors, I’d love to write more.

Do you plan on having Zane and Janie meet for the first time in real story life, in war or because of Kalin bringing them together?

Well, without giving too much away here, Janie and Zane will meet for the first time in real story life – basically their story.  Of course, Zane may meet somebody from Janie’s world in real time in Shadowed.

Do you stick with a planned outline or do the characters change things up; lead you off into different directions?

My characters take me wherever they want to go.  In fact, I’ve turned in proposals to my editor with paragraphs describing each book in a series, and by the time I write those books, I sometimes even change the names of the characters.  I don’t work with outlines.

Are you ever nervous about a book?

I’m not nervous about a book while I’m writing it, but once I send it to my editor, I get a little light-headed.  I also never want to let fans down, so I try really hard not to, and I do my best each time.  Hopefully my best keeps improving, because writing is one of those cool jobs where each book can be better than the last.

5 Star Mercy (Tuesday, January 22, 2019)
Reviewer: StormyVixen

The newest Dark Protector romance is extraordinarily entertaining and explosive. Mercy and Logan’s chemistry is off the charts magnetic and these two bold, vivid characters keep readers on the edge of expectation and chuckles throughout the story. There is nothing sweet about this romance as they engage is snarky comments, hot, passionate battles and steamy passion all the way through their blossoming relationship. Mercy is the last female that Logan should be falling for and the timing is could certainly have been better as he is preparing to take part in the dangerous and terrifying Seven ritual. Readers can’t help but have fun even as they await for the next interruption of this couple’s activities.

From kidnapping to realm hopping, this story is a non-stop adventure that keeps readers on the edge of their seat with adrenaline pumping action, thrilling suspense, and surprising twists. There is no way this book can be put down once readers get started because it starts off with a bang and just keeps exploding with energy and wonderfully zestful characters that demand attention. The fast pace plot flows smoothly and the author brings to the story to life with vivid imagery that makes it easy for the readers to connect to the characters and become part of the story and all the enjoyment of this explosive and passionate installment of the Dark Protectors.
