I have an urban fantasy series, The Vampire Guard, that is a spin off from a paranormal romance series I co-wrote with Anne Barwell, called The Sleepless City. I love the characters and this series so much! There are romantic elements, but this series isn’t a romance.
Vampires make the best spies. Throw a smart-mouthed werewolf in with three vampires, mix well, and The Vampire Guard’s newest team is bound to become one of their greatest assets. Super spies with a full range of skills. Warrior, hacker, thief, and scientist. They get in, do the job and get out before the bad guys ever know what hit them.
They employ a combination of supernatural powers and cutting-edge technology to hunt down terrorists, thieves, biological weapons… and sometimes even their fellow vampires and werewolves. An eclectic organization comprised of individuals with diverse personalities, backgrounds, and abilities, this guard has bite—and they’re not afraid to use it.
So far I’ve released two books in the series, they are available on Amazon and are in Kindle Unlimited and eBook. Paperbacks will be released soon.
These characters and this series are ridiculously fun to write. I love coming up with new adversaries and situations to drop them into. Something that’s become one of my favorite parts is flashbacks that take a look at where my vampire spies came from and what their lives were like 50 or 150 years ago. Each book tells more than one tale, all intertwined into one adventurous plot.
I’m currently writing book three, Endosymbiont. I plan to have it released later this year. It’s a sort of vampires and werewolves meet zombies and terrorists with biological weapons. Oh, and the bulk of the story takes place about a mile under the Atlantic Ocean.
Here’s a little bit of a peek.
A werewolf and seven vampires are all that stand between the world and complete annihilation.
When Kai Richter and Ori Bier met, sparks flew.
Then a train blew up.
Tracking a virus deadly to not only humans, but vampires and werewolves alike, brings Kai and Ori into the Vampire Guard. Decades later, they, along with Operative Team Jack Rabbit, come face to face with the horrors that same virus produces. Dead bodies are coming back to life, and rational people are becoming violent and brutal killers.
A massacre is taking place nearly a mile under the Atlantic Ocean. Two teams of the Vampire Guard are in the thick of it, fighting to survive.
Declan watched in horror as the entire room was set ablaze when flames shot out of the ceiling. Declan jumped back and Kruger pushed him even farther back.
“They’re…they….” Declan pointed to the room.
“Will be fine in the sample lockers. You have no reason to, but trust me,” Kruger said.
The flames were white and blue, telling Declan how incredibly hot they were. A few short minutes later the flames subsided and a whoosh told Declan the room was being cleared of air. There was nothing left of the body or the green glop but ashes that was then doused in what looked like a frozen slushy.
“Now.” Kruger ran at the door. Declan heard the locks release and they charged through.
Slipping and sliding Declan ran at top speed to the lockers. “Lucas!” He took hold of the handle. “Jonas.” He broke the handle off, and the door swung open.
Lucas and Jonas were crammed into a space barely large enough for one of them, let alone both of them. They were wrapped around one another and Jonas’s face mask was shattered.
“I hate this fucking place,” Jonas growled and guided Lucas out of the locker. He was a step behind when Declan grabbed them both in a hug.
Lucas pressed closer and whispered, “We’re okay thanks to Kruger’s fast thinking.”
Declan let go and turned to Kruger. All he could do was nod and swallow down the enormous lump in his throat.
Jonas took off his ruined hazmat hood and threw it to the ground. “No one come down here just yet. We’re fine. Kai, Ori, burn every single body.”
“Forge, I need—” Lucas began but stopped when Declan shook his head and gripped Lucas’s arm.
“We’ll simply have to find another way, Lucas. None of those bodies are safe and they need to be destroyed. Now.” Jonas stalked toward the door. “You still have the biochips and the data from the drives and the equations we’ll have soon.”
Declan looked at Kruger, expecting him to back Lucas up but instead he said, “Your friend is right. It’s time to begin destroying what we can.”
