Teaser: Caressed by a Crimson Moon

Teaser: Caressed by a Crimson Moon 
(Rulers of Darkness #3)

~Hadrian’s angered roar shook the night as he clutched his head. He could not have her. She was not his.
He had to get away from her. He had to get her scent off him. Without looking back and without a word, he dematerialized. Leaving her in the night, he took form in his washroom. Kicking free of his jeans, he stepped under the waterfall of ice cold water in his shower. He had to clear his mind. He had to wash away her essence.
As the chilled water cascaded over his head, he punched the tiled wall, cracking the porcelain. The water rinsed away the blood on his knuckles to reveal already healed flesh in stark contrast to the damaged tiles. He envisioned his soul looked just like the circular indent. Each fissure and fracture of the tile representing the damage his battered soul bore.
He was evil.
He was insane.
He was…empty.
He did not deserve her.~

Consumed by madness and tormented by dark memories of blood and death, Hadrian Lucretius, King of the Validus Clan, has returned after living in self-imposed exile for nearly three hundred and fifty years.
To maintain peace with the vampires, Eva Maldonado is offered as a sacrifice to the crazed vampire king by her father, the alpha of the Silveria Shifter Pack. Hadrian’s reputation is both legendary and lethal; he is ruthless, bloodthirsty, lusty, and soulless. When Eva arrives at the ancient fortress high in the Carpathian Mountains, she is shocked to find a ravaged man with dark burning eyes filled with loneliness and dangerous desire.
Would she be his lover…or his prey? His savior…or his victim? Would Hadrian lure her into madness or would their perilous passion be their redemption?

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, tests his sanity and challenges his every boundary. Can Jordan help him overcome the miseries of his past and find a future with her? Or will he lose what remains of his soul and become a true beast?

Teaser Tuesday: Caressed by Moonlight

Teaser Tuesday: Caressed by Moonlight
 (Rulers of Darkness #1)

~She was helpless against his prowess and was utterly seduced. She was ready and willing to do whatever it was he wanted. Dorian smiled with satisfaction. He lifted her and set her on the desk just behind them. His thumbs hooked in the small sleeves of her dress and he nipped at her shoulder as he dragged the material down.
            Victoria clutched at his shirt wanting to tear it to shreds. She needed to feel his hard body against hers. 
“Miss Kingston,” Rogers called as he tried the knob of the locked door.
Dorian cursed. He could kill that man. He reluctantly pulled away and straightened her sleeves. He set Victoria back on her feet, her eyes still closed, lips still parted, and cheeks flushed. She was beautiful and he could only imagine what she would look like in his bed, beneath him. He smiled to himself when her eyes finally fluttered open; she hadn’t heard Rogers at the door. She gazed up at him confused. Then, as she regained her elegant composure, her emerald eyes narrowed and impaled him. If he were a mortal man her intense stare would have set him aflame.
            He saw her hand rise and felt the hard slap she delivered. He smiled and fingered his jaw.
“I suppose that means we will be finishing this later.”
            She raised her hand again but he caught her wrist. “I deserved one but I won’t allow you a second.”
            Victoria snatched her hand away and pushed him aside so she could pass. “There will never be later,” she snapped, her voice low and threatening.
She turned on her heel and headed to the doors. Releasing the lock, she threw the door wide open. Rogers stood smiling like a schoolboy and Victoria roughly took his arm and practically dragged the man down the hall. Dorian watched amused. Her temper was glorious and he loved it. It had been hundreds of years since anyone had been so open with him. He appreciated her honest anger. He idly rubbed his jaw and grinned. His kitten really did have claws.~

Dorian Vlakhos is no ordinary aristocrat. He is a vampire king, who will do anything to save his clan from complete annihilation, before an ancient curse can claim his immortal life.
Penniless and orphaned, Victoria Kingston has nothing to bring to a marriage, yet she must shackle an unsuspecting gentleman into marriage by the end of the month or forfeit her rights as guardian of her younger sister. With the help of her dearest friend, Victoria begins her hunt, and vows to stay far away from the dark, mysterious, Dorian Vlakhos.
After meeting the beautifully innocent Miss Kingston, Dorian had to have her. He would do absolutely anything to make Victoria his. One sweet stolen kiss would bring them together while a force, more powerful than any vampire, would bind them for all eternity, but treachery, war, and death rule Dorian’s dark world and Victoria would be fortunate to survive.
