…better yet, happy almost Turkey Day (no classes!!! (yet I still have assignments…))!
Today, I have the honor of spotlighting a new novella by Emma Meade, whose YA novel, Under the Desert Moon, won me over with its “light and fun read that took a new spin on the vampire/paranormal scene.”
This has to be one of my favorite covers of the year. Seriously, I love the blues and the city backdrop…gorgeous!
November in New York is cold but full of possibility for college freshman Erin Harris. When her twin brother, Nick, shows up on her doorstep for a surprise visit, Erin is delighted. Unfortunately, Nick’s arrival coincides with the discovery of a body outside her apartment building, a body drained of blood. Right away, Nick assumes vampires are involved. He’s not exactly their biggest fan since Erin dated one in high school.
Juggling nosy roommates, a first date with a gorgeous guy from college and a brother on a Van Helsing kick is enough to keep any nineteen year old girl busy – And then Erin’s old flame walks back into her life.
Is Erin destined to be caught up in supernatural shenanigans, or will she choose a different path?
About the Author
Emma Meade lives in rainy Ireland. She loves vampires, slayers, witches, ghosts, aliens & shadow men (or at least the youngest of the Shadow Men), and regular people who live extraordinary lives (think Slayerettes and you’re on the right track). Books, DVDS & TV show boxsets take up lots of space in her home, and she collects all the Point Horror books she can get her hands on. Writing supernatural stories and watching marathon re-runs of Buffy are some of her favourite ways of escaping reality.
“My father wouldn’t be so understanding.” Erin frowned, not liking to think about her dad. “Did she have a boy or girl?” Erin shrugged in apology for not remembering.
“A boy. I feel sorry for my sister. She was surrounded by us growing up.”
“I’m sure it wasn’t that bad. She had a cool big brother.” She groaned inwardly. Why did she have to say that?
Tommy looked at her. Erin thought she saw a hint of a smile hovering around his lips. Where the hell was Sadie with the drinks? That girl was in big trouble for setting this up. A blush rose in Erin’s cheeks. She was grateful for the dim lighting in the bar.
“So, I’m cool, am I?” Tommy said after a moment, smiling easily again.
The tension alleviated and Erin breathed normally. “I thought you might have noticed that. You have a motorcycle. That automatically puts you in the cool club.”
“I’d like to take you out on the bike.”
And the hard-to-breathe thing started again.
