Dark Child of Forever

DARK CHILD OF FOREVER

Dark Destinies, Book 3

by S.K. Ryder

Genre: Dark Paranormal Romantic Fantasy

Publisher: Soul Mate Publishing

34a9d-synopsis

A reluctant new Lord of Night. His vulnerable human queen. If they can’t change five thousand years of history now, it will change them. Forever.

Fate has cast vampire Dominic Marchant and the human love of his life, Cassidy Chandler, into roles they never imagined. Thanks to his mad sire, he is now the Lord of Night, and Cassidy, with her unique ability to merge her mind with his, has become the incongruous mortal queen of his immortal kingdom. Even as he dreams of seeing the sun again and she can’t imagine becoming a vampire, they vow to reshape their domain into a world where vampires feed on love rather than fear and leave their prey swooning instead of dead.

But not all their subjects are pleased with the change in leadership. A powerful ancient vampire and his cadre of followers serve Dominic his greatest challenge yet just when reclaiming the day looks like a real possibility. Soon friends turn up in ashes, and Cassidy and his human family become targets in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse that leads them and their unlikely, vampire-hunting allies deep into the wilds of the Canadian Rockies—and straight into their worst nightmares.

With their lives and the very existence of the world of night hanging in the balance, Dominic and Cassidy must decide whether to chase an impossible dream or finally embrace their dark destiny.

c8d28-excerpt

The vault door in the vestibule unsealed. A vampire appeared and stood with his arms draped over the decorative gate, his unshaven face split by a lecherous grin that made Jackson rise from his chair in alarm.

“Cassidy.” Serge’s baritone voice purred with appreciation. “You ordered takeout.” Unlike his lord and master who still digested the events of the day, Serge had no idea what the human was doing there.

“Be nice,” she said. “He comes bearing gifts.”

“Oh, yes, he does.” Serge unlatched the gate and sauntered across the kitchen, barefoot and rumpled, his curly caramel hair sticking out in every direction, the vampire equivalent of a man in search of coffee.

Jackson glared at him. “Sleeping with the boss now? You’ve come up in the world.”

“Sleeping? No. Not I.” Serge puffed out his barrel chest with pride. “I stand guard over my lord.”

His lordship materialized beside Serge and delivered a gentle slap to the back of his head. “More like lie guard flat on your back,” he said in his lyrical French accent.

Serge growled much as the cat had earlier. “But I am always with you.”

“I know,” Dominic concurred with a dramatic sigh. “There is no getting rid of you.”

“And you are glad for it, blood-child. Admit it.”

Cassidy smiled at their antics. Tall, lean and grace incarnate, Dominic was the polar opposite of both the stocky Serge and muscle-bound Jackson. Even dressed in his usual exercise pants and T-shirt, both black, few would mistake him for the ordinary man of twenty-seven he had been when he was turned into a blood-drinker. Carved cheekbones and a knife-blade nose dominated his profile, and his expressive mouth could instill terror as easily as convey gentle humor. Not to mention bestow mind-blowing kisses.

But it was the eyes that were the most striking thing about him. Their quiet depths missed nothing and could flash from warm and beguiling to full black and disturbing in the space of a heartbeat. Gold flecks danced in the hazel irises now as he looked at her.

“Bonjour, mon amour,” he murmured and held out his hand.

“Bonjour,” she said, moving into his embrace.

The world around them fell away, and they stood together in the sunlight streaming through the foyer just as she remembered it. He rubbed the back of her neck with his thumb while she nuzzled into his thick hair, inhaling his heady youngling scent of winter on the cusp of spring, clean and earthy and full of warm promise.

“Indeed. He brings gifts,” Serge said, pulling them back to the moment.

Uh oh, she thought.

His tone had lost its swagger and turned dreamy. It meant he saw ‘shadows’ in the aura of whoever he was looking at, or impressions of the future. When Serge had his visions, disjointed and insubstantial as they were, something always changed.

Often not for the better.

Though Dominic appeared unconcerned, Cassidy felt the tension skitter through him, too. Neither of them dared to interrupt Serge as he studied Jackson with an intense interest that no longer had anything to do with his warm blood. The human man returned the stare, his hands wrapped over the back of the bar stool as though preparing to pick it up and use it as a weapon.

Serge turned to look at Dominic with a wide, gap-toothed grin of wonder. Then he chuckled. The gleeful sound was entirely worthy of the pirate he had been in life.

Oui?” Dominic prompted. “Did he bring a good gift?”

Serge laughed.

Jackson offered a tentative smile. “I suspect you’ll like it.”

And just like that Serge stopped laughing.

In a flash he was by Jackson’s side, his eyes bugging out of their sockets. “Beware the fire,” he whispered on a hiss that made Cassidy’s skin crawl.

Jackson took a hasty step back.

“Beware the fire,” Serge repeated, now looking at Dominic. Then he laughed uproariously and disappeared.

Dominic closed his eyes and struggled for patience.

“What…was that?” Jackson said.

Cassidy rubbed the chill out of her arms. “That was Serge. You remember him, don’t you? Vampire you tried so hard to kill?”

Discomfort tightened his mouth as he looked away.

Dominic moved forward and placed his hands on the edge of the green granite counter top as he faced Jackson. “So did you bring me fire, Jackson?” His gaze darkened as he let the vampire rise and his senses expand.

Looking through his eyes, Cassidy saw that Jackson had changed more than she realized. His aura, once muddy red with anger, had brightened into the powerful crimson of a man whose mind and purpose were clear.

Jackson took a deep breath and pressed a fingertip onto the little black case. “In a way.”

Dominic tilted his head, brows drawing together. “This is from the lab?”

“Yes, it is.”

The lab. The Striker Foundation’s clandestine research facility, staffed with bright scientific minds compelled by Dominic to maintain absolute secrecy. The lab existed for one reason, and one reason only, and it was this now that caused Dominic and Cassidy to become stone-still with anticipation.

“They did it, Dominic. They found a way. You can have the sun again.”

Dark Heart of the Sun

His future is already written…in her blood.

Rookie journalist Cassidy Chandler wakes to an ugly bruise on her neck, a hole in her memory, and a fiancé who seems to know more about what happened than he’s telling. It’s enough to make Cassidy call off the engagement and move out, even if that means trading a posh South Florida mansion for a dilapidated beach house. Unfortunately, she also trades one devious man for another questionable character in her unexpected new roommate: the darkly enigmatic and exasperatingly French Dominic Marchant.

For Dominic Marchant secrecy is a matter of survival. As a newborn vampire with dangerous enemies, he’s sure the headstrong young woman invading his lair with an unknown vampire’s mark on her throat is about to get him killed. But the charming Cassidy resists his every effort to make her leave and even embroils him in her own tumultuous life. Before he knows it, she has stolen his heart and helps him rediscover his lost humanity. Now he’s fighting to protect her not only from the ancient vampires hunting him, but also from his own deadly desire for her.

But her secretive ex isn’t done with her yet, and neither is the dark prophecy Cassidy and Dominic’s unlikely relationship has set in motion. Together they are swept up in a battle where nothing is as it seems, love and deception are the weapons of choice, and the only way to survive is to risk everything–for each other.

Dark Lord of the Night

The only thing standing between a new vampire and eternal darkness is the fragile mortal woman who claims his heart.

Youngling vampire Dominic Marchant struggles to master his deadly instincts as he hunts the urban jungles of South Florida. He keeps his hunger confined to the blood of the guilty with help from Cassidy Chandler, a human woman who can literally touch his soul. Their love is his last remaining tether to humanity, which is tested beyond endurance when powerful forces from his past introduce him to terrifying new appetites he could never have imagined.

His efforts to protect Cassidy from the depravity overtaking him push their relationship to the brink of shattering. Refusing to give up on the man who is her heart, she takes an unthinkable gamble to save him. But is she fulfilling an ominous prophecy that ensnares them both? Or has she become just another pawn in a cunning game played by the five-thousand-year-old vampire who claims Dominic as his own?

Desperate to rescue her from a fate worse than death, Dominic strikes a perilous bargain with his greatest enemies only to face an impossible choice–embrace his darkest self…or destroy the woman he cannot live without.

S.K. Ryder is a software developer by day, a scribe by night and answers to Susan any time. She writes the type of stories she loves to read: heart-pounding adventures full of supernatural mysteries and relationships between strong, compelling characters. Though she calls South Florida home, she has also lived in Germany and Canada and has traveled widely, usually in the hot pursuit of wild and scenic nature. When not debugging code, complicating her characters’ lives or plotting her next rafting adventure down the Grand Canyon, she can be found beach combing, scuba diving, sailing or just hanging out with a good book. When push comes to shove, she can also bake a halfway decent cake and stand on her head, though not at the same time.

Hear what Authors have to say about Hydra

Two years ago I found myself in a publishing nightmare. The company I went through had been charging me for things that weren’t getting done and treating me like I wasn’t worth their time, all the while charging me massive amounts of money that I really couldn’t afford! Then I was introduced to Hydra Productions. Not only did they answer all my questions, gave me advice and agreed to republish my series for a fraction of the cost! Instead of putting one a year out, I will be able to put two out plus other works as well! I would recommend them to anyone and have. I currently send all my aspiring writer friends to them to be published. They have become friends and family and I wouldn’t have it any other way. They treat you like you are a priority, not just a cash flow. I am proud to say that I am a Hydra Productions author!

Author Lianne Willowmoon

Working with Hydra Productions has been a really great experience for me thus far. The website is well laid out, the submission process is clear and simple, and the owners very easy to work with. I received feedback within 24 hours, and when an offer for a publishing deal came, everything was very transparent. Each part was discussed before being put on paper so there were no surprises later on when the contract arrived. I hope to work with Hydra Productions for quite a long time due to their approachable and transparent way of doing things, and their “small business” feel of treating us like friends and family more than a money source.

Marjorie-Ann Lacharite

What can I say, well it was an author friend that introduced me to Raven and Hydra Production as a budding new author I did not know what to expect and was nervous. When I met Raven, she immediately put all my worries at rest, explaining the process and what I needed to do. Within hours I had my first contract I was going to be a published author a dream come true.

Since signing with Hydra, I have found them to be professional and always willing to answer any question any of us authors have. They have created systems to help each author grow and expand we are a support network for each other. Hydra especially Raven has built a trusting family, and we want to help each other be the best we can be.

Since signing up my first book, I have signed up for three others to be released over the next 18 months with a possible three book series the following year. All because of the support and encouragement that has been given by Hydra. I would recommend them to any new author or even a seasoned one.

They are both professional and supportive and always there for their authors. They will promote you, and if they do not have the services, you require they will know someone that you can trust to help you. Not only do they help you as an author but they take a holistic approach to providing training in all areas including marketing to better help you succeed

AUTHOR INTERVIEW

1.png

Good afternoon everyone please welcome to the floor Maggie Lowe, now Maggie I know you wear many hats and have your fingers in many pots. But first I want to talk about you and how I know you.

We had been casual friends on Facebook for some time and I can remember the day as if it was yesterday where you posted a request for help with your blog, you wanted someone that could help review books and complete promotional companies posts. I said why not I loved to read I had done some basic blog work before, so I said to you I would help, I can remember thinking how I can read a book a day and post a review, I realized very quickly what that meant.

You were very patient with me for the first few days as I was learning the ropes, we became an unrentable team, the name changed to a combination of our writing pen names of Cloe Michael’s Reads and together we created what CMR is today an unstoppable machine where we no longer need to promote to authors they come to us for promotional free services. We work with 4 of the major promotional companies as bloggers sharing the word of some amazing authors.

Along the way we became fast great friends, over the last 18 months we have had people come and go but never staying too long except for Elle who we both feel will take the blog in the direction we want for the future.

But back to you, as your friend I never met and someone I can call sister you are always there for me, when I feel I am doing too much or you see me struggling you are there for me, you encouraged me to write and publish my first book even helping me find a publisher that would love my work, you say I inspire you well I think it is the other way around girly.

So, let us have the readers get to know you what your hobbies Maggie are “I like reading, writing, blogging and cooking” so Maggie you have made your hobbies your life’s work, that is commendable, but cooking is the only thing that you do for yourself.

OK then what are you passionate about? Well I would have to say blogging, I love to help other authors with promoting their work but also writing ( of which I know you are doing a lot of that right now) and cooking, tell us what you love to cook…” mmm that is my secret you will have to visit to find out” Dam I knew I should have visited when I was in Vegas last year, oh well next time.

OK so how can our readers find you on social media because I know you are all over it, I do not think you sleep much you spend so much time promoting.

The moon had crested to its zenith. It hung suspended in the sky, closer to dawn than midnight, when Antara opened her eyes. Myth and magic greeted her sleepy gaze through the gap in the floor length curtain drawn to one side.  Ross was out on the balcony, with his hands curled over the railing. His wings were free, bathed in a moon river that painted him silver. Only the tips of his feathers stirred. Rippling like liquid metal under the caress of a subtle pre-dawn breeze.
Her breath caught and stalled in her lungs. It wasn’t so much the sculpted perfection of his physique that did it. Rather, it was the ethereal reminder that the man out there was anything but human. In his rightful form, in an unguarded moment like this where even the moon couldn’t resist touching him, she understood why there were those that had worshipped him as a god.
He must have felt her eyes on him, for he turned and caught her in the blue glow of his gaze. Her blood warmed. Her skin flushed and, for a moment, her mind filled with at least half a dozen erotic things she wanted him to do to her. Then he held out his hand to her.
“Come fly with me.”
Beneath the layers of hedonistic indulgence smoking through his voice, lay a deeper note of gravity that intrigued her.
Naked, she slid out from under the light covering of the sheet, stood, and reached for her robe.
He shook his head. “No. Just as you are.”
She let the silk garment fall to the floor and stepped out onto the balcony wearing only a shy smile. She took his hand. Warm, capable, and elegant fingers laced through hers.
“What if someone sees us?” she whispered.
He smiled, drew her in closer against the hard wall of his body and curled his wings about her. She shivered beneath the sensual brush of feathered tips over her ass and the backs of her thighs.
“Then they will know that you are mine.”
He let go of her hand and wrapped his arms around her. She circled hers about his neck and stared up into his eyes, drifting away in the endless ocean of exquisite blue. The weapon, Hermes, Diana, Apollo, the war they had spoken of… everything melted away until there was only the two of them.
Warmed by his feathered embrace, she became aware of the air cooling her extremities—feet, forearms, and fingers, laced at the nape of his neck. Antara looked down and gasped. No longer were they on the solid balcony running the length of the windowed wall, the penthouse lay far below. Instinctively, she tightened her grip.
“How…?” She looked back up at him to find his gaze hadn’t left her. “Your wings aren’t moving,” she whispered in awe.
“I let go and trust the universe to catch me,” he replied, with the mysteries of antiquity shading his voice.
He held her there for a while, hovered high in the air. Below them, the slumbering neighbourhood spread out a glittering quilt of street lamps and traffic lights. She felt the moment he decided upon movement. It was there in the sudden release of power that surged through the thick slabs of muscle coating his chest, shoulders, and back. His wings unfurled from around her, stretched to their fullest extension, and then swept through the air.
Antara bit her lip and screwed her eyes shut. He laughed. Deep and melodious. The sound of a thousand summer nights spiced with cinnamon, kissed with myrrh and cooled with rain. Forcing her eyes open again, the expression on his face was joy in its purest form. It shone from his pores and lit up his eyes, stretched his grin wide and…melted her insides.
“You love it, don’t you?” she whispered, soaking in the sight of him revelling in the freedom of flight.
His head turned, and his mouth found the side of her neck. Hot breath fanned her skin when he replied, “Flying is best with love in my arms.”

Beneath the Shine
by Lisa Sorbe
 
 
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: Prairie Tales; Book 3 (Standalone)
 
 

 

Thirty-year-old Betsy Kline knows what holds her back. Knows she is the way she is and guards herself the way she does. It took her years, but she finally has the good common sense to know that what happened back then wasn’t her fault. But knowing isn’t enough to stanch the flow of memories that eat away at her dreams like toxic sludge. Nor is it enough to stop the self-loathing that always finds its way in, creeping-creeping-creeping, tainting every decision she makes. 
 
But life isn’t all bad. She works for a boss she doesn’t despise, has a picture-perfect boyfriend (on the outside, at least), and has the sort of friends her lonely younger self only ever dreamed of having. 
 
Like Adair McTaggart. Now there’s a best friend if there ever was one. And the fact that he’s a hunk with a sexy Scottish lilt doesn’t hurt, either.
 
Or maybe it does, because lately Betsy can’t stop fantasizing about him. Can’t keep her heart from stuttering a pathetic little beat in her chest whenever she so much as thinks about him. And when Life throws them together as temporary roommates, those feelings only intensify. Which is the worst thing ever, because he’s too good for her. Sure, she can keep him as a friend. But what would she do if she lost him as a lover?
 
When you’ve felt wrong for so long, is it possible to ever feel right? And how do you heal the wounds you can’t see?

“You’ve returned for information?” Alesea inquired after the doors to the chamber sealed shut. She used her affinity, moving the air to create a soundproof barrier. What they were going to speak about was no one’s concern but theirs. Briar wouldn’t be far … hell, she may even be waiting by the door trying to listen in.
“No, not for that, I received that from you once before. What I’ve returned for is clarification. Understanding. Tell me, how is it that the last time I was here, you gave me information in exchange for my help, and yet now, many years later, I come to find out that what you told me was false?” He expanded his body and his voice, filling the room with his energy. Jinn wanted her to feel his anger as if it would suffocate her. He wanted her to fear what he was capable of. If she lied to him yet again, she would pay the consequences.
“I provided the knowledge I had.” Alesea remained calm, her voice as cool as the breeze continuously swirling around her, shifting the thin fabrics of her dress.
“You provided hearsay, not knowledge! You said she was dead, taken out by the warlock while I was away.” The two remained standing, mere feet separating her small frame and his dark form which continued to expand.
“And that was the truth I had to provide.”
“Really? I can hear it, you know, the flutter of your heart every time you lie to me. Please, do not continue.” He stepped closer to her. “Tell me, did you verify these facts? Did you see her death personally? Did you do more than ask a few questions of those you passed in the halls?”
“What do you want, Jinn?” The queen lifted her chin, asserting her own power. If he dared to touch her, she would drop her shield and call for the guards.
“The truth.” He paused. “Either you give me the truth I want, or I will spread the truth you hope none of your people ever find out about.” His voice lowered as he leaned closer to her. He had her and they both knew it. “How would they take it? The knowledge that you, their queen, cut down the last.”
“She was a tyrant, evil, and working with the darkest of magic! You know that I had to do what I did.” Alesea took a step back from the djinn.
“I don’t know that you had to do anything. Yes, all is true regarding her activities, but you killed her, Alesea, and you know as well as I do, fairies are loyal. They stick by their queen no matter what. You betrayed her, which means you betrayed them all.”
“What can I do?”
“Correct the error you made. You have one day. I want to know the truth. Where is Nitara?” He turned to leave the room. “You will bring word, not one of your messengers, you. Or this city that you love so much will burn to the ground, by the hands of your own.”
“You’ll only implement yourself!” She called out the empty threat, her last attempt at swaying his decision.
“Yes, but unlike you, I actually possess the strength to protect myself.” He pointed to the thrown from which she climbed down. “You are nothing if removed from the throne. If disconnected from the source of your power, how many of them would it take to cut you down like you did your former queen?”
“Jinn, please.”
He shushed her, holding up one finger to her. “One day, Alesea.” He left the room.
“Is everything okay?” Briar reentered the room once Jinn had made his exit.
“No, unfortunately, it is not. The world is about to change, Briar.”  She dropped her head back to stare through the glass ceiling that gave her visage to the night sky. “Retrieve the seer, please.”

You know the saying. A picture is worth a thousand words?
Well, it’s true.
And I’m going to tell you why. Or rather, show you.
My name is Chloe Vanderbilt and a few weeks ago, my life changed forever.
And it’s all due to one single photograph.
Freelance writer Chloe Vanderbilt never imagined her life would become a story.
As a Hollywood gossip columnist for one of Australia’s biggest entertainment websites, she’d always written about the lives of those far more glamourous than herself.
One steamy summer night, and a few wines too many, an encounter with a mysterious stranger at a party shakes up her world.
No cameras or phones were allowed at the party, so Chloe thought she’d take the secret to her grave.
When a picture emerges a few weeks later of her and Hollywood ‘it’ boy Jack Dean, it gets tongues wagging and before long, Chloe finds herself the heroine of her own story.
Everyone wants to know about the Sydney writer who stole the heart of Hollywood’s latest heartthrob.
Soon, all of Chloe’s wildest dreams come true.
But is it happening too fast?
Chloe has a decision to make: lose her dignity, or the greatest love of her life?
When the world falls at her feet, will Chloe run with it, or away from it?
This is a story about how one photograph can make or break you.
