But the distracting human with mesmerizing violet eyes jeopardizes his plans. With every soft whisper she evokes his tormented memories, testing his sanity and challenging his every boundary. Can Jordan help him overcome the miseries of his past and find a future with her?

Soundtrack - Caressed by the Edge of Darkness


Certain songs can just strike a cord. They can trigger emotions, drudge up memories (good and bad). Well, this morning a few songs helped me better understand my characters and their world. I'm currently working on Caressed by the Edge of Darkness (Rulers of Darkness #5), Gabriel's book. This story has been a long time in the making. I mean, hell, its the 5th book of a 6...maybe 7 book series. However, when I originally mapped out this series it was meant to be the last book, but the characters have led me in a different direction. 

Gabriel has a very complicated back story, like most tortured heroes, and he will have to overcome centuries of pain, mistrust, and bad habits to claim his happily ever after. 

Caressed by the Edge of Darkness:
Hardened by centuries of torture, former blood slave, Gabriel Erhard, is driven by an insatiable need to destroy his enemies. Violence darkens his battered soul, leaving no place for mercy in his world. Gabriel’s only desire is vengeance—until he finds her.
Seized by vampires, bound as a slave, and placed on the auction block, Jordan Culver is instantly entranced by the dangerous male who claims her. Jordan’s new captor vows to set her free, but his haunted gaze burns with savage desire and his wicked kiss makes her crave his touch and...complete surrender.
While Gabriel battles his enemies, he will break every sacred law to achieve his ultimate goal—uniting the Outcast Society and creating a new vampire Clan. But the distracting human with mesmerizing violet eyes jeopardizes his plans. With every soft whisper she evokes his tormented memories, testing his sanity and challenging his every boundary. Can Jordan help him overcome the miseries of his past and find a future with her?


Here are the songs on my play list this morning:

1. Seven Chakra - CES cruEvery time I hear this I think of Gabriel's past and his journey from being a blood slaved forced to become a vampire so his Mistress wouldn't lose her favorite pet to mortality, and  how he is now the leader of a strong vampire Clan.  He's "shatter proof".
2. Not Strong Enough by Apocalyptica
Today's inspirational song for Gabriel and Jordan's relationship:

Please note, songs are explicit.

~ Jordan’s body was heavy, her heart struggled to beat.
Was she dying? She gasped for breath. His scent hit her like a shot, filled her lungs, and spread heat through her body.
The vampire’s lips brushed her brow. “Hold on, sweet.” Oh, god, that sexy, sexy voice. Deep and rough.
Gabriel’s arms tightened around her as he sat on the edge of a bed.
She wasn’t dying, she was drifting in and out of the most erotic dream she’d ever had. He held her immobile, pressing her mouth to a gash in his throat. His blood slipped over her tongue and down her throat. She knew this was wrong but, damn, his taste…ecstasy. A decadent dessert.~

Review of Caressed by a Crimson Moon

PRUF Reads Review of Caressed by a Crimson Moon (Rulers of Darkness #3) 
5 of 5 Stars

King to the Validus Clan exiled himself  over 300 years ago, unable to keep his throne. His mind is as shattered and broken as the windows and mirrors, whose reflection he can't seem escape. His descent into madness has been a painful one. Memories and visions of torture and blood lust accompany the voices and blood curdling screams inside his head. Hadrian is damaged, lethal and while no angel, he's fallen, to his knees, broken.

Caressed by a Crimson Moon, the 3rd installment of the Rulers of Darkness series, made my heart hurt. There are characters that you follow and sometimes, just sometimes, there are characters that you feel. You feel their pain, their anxiety, self loathing and triumphs. Hadrian was that character for me. Ms. Greene ripped his heart, mind, body and soul wide open, leaving for you, the reader, no emotion untapped. The wordplay flowed effortlessly, keeping me drawn in and anxious for more.

Before laying eyes on Falcon, Eva had never actually seen a vampire before. That doesn't mean she hasn't heard the rumors, the stories of the monster, the mad king who will drain her, slowly, painfully. Is Eva escaping one hell only to be thrown into another? There is no slow burn here. The whirlwind begins almost immediately and can I just say, by chapter 4...yeah, that. There are secrets and revelations, tests of willpower and all consuming passion that is raw, sensual and downright primal, making for a thrilling ride.

Fans of the series will be thrilled to get a better look at Hadrian and Falcon's 'bromance' and what lays ahead for my favorite Black Knight. Silvie is a fiestly little witch who is quite the puppet master and appearances by other characters that together, help make this series what it is, and is coming to be. This is, by far, the best of the series to date and with an intriguing ending, leading to book #4!

The Rulers of Darkness and the Black Knights at their side make for a dark, sexy, lethal clan you'll want to sink your own teeth into!

~Gannon shook his head and sighed, “I don’t get you, man.”
“You’ve never shared my opinion; therefore I don’t expect you to understand.”
“No, that’s not it.” Gannon’s gaze dropped to the floor as he rubbed his nape. “You’ve been different.”
Gabriel couldn’t hold back his laugh. “You’re mistaking my recent kindness towards humans with caring.”
Gannon rolled his eyes. “You can’t deny you haven’t been your usual sociopath self the last couple months.”
Irritation rising, Gabriel snapped, “This conversation grows tiresome. If you have a point, make it.”
“I think Jordan is the cause.”~
