Halloween is only a week away! To get you in the spirit, we're talking paranormal romances in the Fright Night Blog Hop and offering up some awesome treats!
I admit one of my favorite things about Halloween is the release of paranormal romances that always precedes it. Even when paranormals were much more rare, publishers would tantalize readers with a romantic release that featured tempting preternatural beings in the month or two leading up to Halloween. I've always looked forward to the spooky holiday for just that reason. So of course, I couldn't be more excited to have a recent release of my own to share with you.
If you like powerful males who are drawn to strong women, danger mixed with humor, action interspersed with steamy romance, then Night Unbound is for you!

For centuries, Lisette d'Alençon has been a warrior against the dark.
She fights alongside her brothers and comrades. But when the dreams
start coming, she can't bear to confess them to the Immortal Guardians'
command. Dreams of a dark-haired man with soft eyes and brutal wounds, a
man her heart aches for—and a man she knows has been declared a
Zach is an exile, a loner. He won't defend himself
against false accusations or grovel to those who should have faith in
him. But he'll damn sure defend the woman who kept him sane against a
plague of super-vamps that seems to have appeared from nowhere. The
Guardians will blame him, and that will make Lisette suspect, too. With
life, death and eternity on the line, who can they really trust?
“Why are you doing this?” Confusion colored Zach’s voice.
Lisette set the pasta down and gave him her full attention. “Doing what?”
He hesitated. “Helping me. Being . . . kind to me.”
Why indeed? She kept getting deeper and deeper and deeper into this . . . whatever this was. “You saved my life.”
His lips tilted up in a faint smile that seemed to reflect cynicism, relief, and disappointment all at once. “Ah. You feel obligated. I understand now.”
“Not obligated,” she corrected. “Grateful. And . . . ”
“And?” he prompted.
“Don’t you know?” she asked curiously. “Haven’t you looked into my thoughts?”
Interesting. Seth and David seemed to lack any reservations when it came to reading the minds of their charges. And, if she were honest, she and Étienne intruded on their friends’ thoughts far more often than they should. One would think Zach, perhaps the antithesis of Seth, would possess even fewer scruples.
Or did he lie?
Could he be testing her to see if she would tell him the truth?
Hell, what did she have to lose at this point?
Crossing the kitchen, she stopped a foot away from Zach and tilted her head back to look up at him.
“Ask me again,” she ordered softly.
“Why are you doing this?” he murmured.
“Because I’m drawn to you, Zach.”
His heart began to beat faster.
As did hers. “I’m drawn to you in a way that makes me want to risk everything just for the chance to know more of you.”
His eyes lit with a mild golden glow. “Why?”
She gave her head a slow shake. “I don’t know. But I suspect . . . I hope . . . that it’s the same for you, that that’s why you came here—to me—when you were so badly injured and needed help.”
He raised one of his hands and, almost as though she were a bird he feared he might frighten away, captured a damp strand of hair that dangled in front of her ear, testing its texture with his fingers. “I came to you because you were all I could think of while I was being tortured.” He drew the lock closer to his face and breathed in the citrus scent of her shampoo. “I came to you because you were all that enabled me to endure it.”
I am in so much trouble here, Lisette thought.
