Here it is!! Sara York has done it again! I have the most amazing cover for my next release, and I’ve been dying to show it off.
I adore the colours, and the pool of blood at the key. Sara has done a fab job at capturing this story, because yes, it’s a novel about vampires.
Yes, I said vampires.
Cronin’s Key is an 82,000 word paranormal romance, and it’s a far leap from my usual contemporary romance. I’m nervous about how this book will be received by my readers AND by any paranormal readers who may not have read anything by me. It’s a huge risk coming from the success of my Red Dirt Heart series, which was as real as life gets in Outback Australia, to leaping into a paranormal world of New York City and the sands of Egypt with vampires and mummies. *coughs* Yep, you read that right too. I said mummies. LOL
I fear my contemporary readers will want to yell at me, “What the freakin’ hell were you thinking??” and the paranormal readers will pat me on the head and tell me to go back to the kiddies table.
Either way, I can’t change what is done. Well, okay, technically I could because the book is still in editing, but I won’t. What’s done is done, and I will always stay true to my characters. (And jsyk, it will be pretty safe to say that if you don’t like the first book, you most certainly won’t like the sequel I’m writing either.) 😀
The release date is March 13th – which is a Black Friday (maybe it’s an omen LOL) I will post the buy links when I get them, because like I said, the book is still in editing. I just reeeeeeeeeeally wanted to show off the fabulous cover. Stay tuned for more details. <3
NYPD Detective Alec MacAidan has always been good with weird. After all, his life has been a string of the unexplainable. But when an injured man gives him cryptic clues, then turns to dust in front of him, Alec’s view on weird is changed forever.
Cronin, a vampire Elder, has spent the last thousand years waiting for Alec. He’d been told his fated one would be a man wielding a shield, but he didn’t expect him to be human, and he certainly didn’t expect that shield to be a police badge.
Both men, strong-willed and stubborn, are still learning how to cope with the push and pull of being fated, when fate throws them another curveball.
Rumors have spread quickly of turmoil in Egypt. Covens are fleeing with news of a vampire who has a talent like no other, hell-bent on unleashing the wrath of Death.
Alec and Cronin are thrown into a world of weird Alec cannot imagine. What he learned in school of ancient pharaohs and Egyptian gods was far from the truth. Instead, he finds out firsthand that history isn’t always what it seems.
