Whew! What a week. I’m hard at work and anticipating an all-nighter (for which I’m entirely too old, by the way) to finish up the last episode of Lovely, Dark, and Deep by tomorrow.
So how about a quick teaser in honor of Allegiance (Penton Legacy, Book Four) now being available for preorder! The release date looks to be June 10, and there’s no blurb or cover yet. Except, because I have (cough, cough) connections with the author, I do have the blurb. Those of you who’ve read Storm Force might find it contains a surprise…
From award-winning author Susannah Sandlin comes the fourth book in the smart and steamy Penton Legacy series. British vampire psychiatrist and former mercenary Cage Reynolds returns to Penton, Alabama, looking for permanent home. The town has been ravaged by the ongoing vampire war and the shortage of untainted human blood. Now the vampires and humans that make up the Omega Force are trying to rebuild. Cage hopes to help the cause, put down roots in Penton, and resolve his relationship with Melissa Calvert. The last thing he expects is an attraction to Robin Ashton, a trash-talking eagle shape-shifter and Omega recruit. Meanwhile, as a dangerous saboteur wreaks havoc in Penton, the ruthless Vampire Tribunal leader Matthias Ludlam has been freed on the eve of his scheduled execution. But by whom? And to what end? As war and chaos rage on, love is the last thing Cage is looking for, but will his attraction to Robin distract him from the danger living among them?
Hm….did that surprise you? What happens between Cage and Melissa, and how does Robin change things? How will Robin’s best friend Nik react to Cage? Will Robin return Cage’s attraction? And who’s sabotaging Penton from the inside? Well, you just gotta wait and see!
[Do you need to read Storm Force in order to read Allegiance? Nope. But it might provide some interesting nonessential context :-)]
