Before I move on to today’s vampalicious book review, just a quick “yahoo!” Tor Books has bought the third in my upcoming urban fantasy series that kicks off April 10, 2012, with Royal Street. Number two is River Road, which will come out in fall 2012. The new one, which exists only in the twinkle of an eye and a few rough notes, will be Elysian Fields. AND, in honor of Talk Like a Pirate Day, I hope to have a new free read up around Sept. 19. Stay tuned!
Now, on to more immediate matters….Dark, brooding immortal who gives up his soul for another chance with the woman taken from him more than two centuries ago…well, cripes. What’s not to love about that? Today, we’re looking at Night Walker, from author Lisa Kessler—and a chance to win a copy! *ahem* and how hot IS that cover?
THE OFFICIAL BLURB:
He gave up his soul for a second chance to love her…Two and a half centuries ago, Calisto Terana lost everything when a zealous priest murdered the woman he loved. Now, desperate for another chance to love her, he wants redemption for the mistake that cost her life. She’s haunted by dreams of her own death…After catching her fiance with another woman, Kate Bradley returns to San Diego to clear her head. The last thing she needs is romance, but after meeting Calisto she’s drawn to him in ways she doesn’t understand. They’ve waited in the shadows for centuries…Calisto has no doubt Kate is the reincarnation of his lost love, but the Fraternidad Del Fuego Santo has a new watcher with dark ambitions of his own. As old enemies reemerge and a new threat arises, the betrayal that enslaved Calisto to the night might destroy the only woman he’s ever loved again.
