Seven days until release!

As part of the countdown to Deadlocked‘s release, I’m re-introducing you to some of the main characters in Harry’s world. Today’s spotlight, Salvador.

Salvador Arroyo is the Magister or leader of the Cimmerian (pronounced Ki-MARE-ian). The most powerful vampire in town and a wealthy businessman in the norm community, he is the Kingpin of the underworld and has his fingers in a lot of pies.

Deadlocked – Excerpt

“Salvador, it’s rude to just let yourself into other people’s homes.”  I scowled at him and kicked off my shoes.  We have a bit of a difference of opinion as to the current ownership of the old firehall I call my home and place of business.  Salvador had signed it over to me, after buying it from the original owner, under duress I’m sure.  It had been part of a deal that unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond my control and totally orchestrated by Salvador, had fallen through.  We had renegotiated the terms, but despite having already given the deed for the building to me, Salvador still considered it his until our new deal’s conditions were met.  Since that meant it would be another six months before I was free and clear of him, I was not a happy camper.  It also meant that despite being a vampire and uninvited, Salvador could enter my home.  Damn vampire loopholes.

One Week to Deadlocked

If you are following Harry’s story, you know that Deadlocked, book three in the Harry Russo Diaries, is set for release on June 6. I’ll be counting down this week with posts featuring some of Harry’s supporting cast.

To start off the countdown, here’s a sneak peek (caution, contains a spoiler from Tooth and Claw):

“Harry, my dear Harry! So marvelous to see you.”  Salvador clapped his hands together like a gleeful three year old.  “You look wonderful.  None the worse for wear I see.”  He rose to his feet with the grace of a panther from where he had been sitting on my couch.  He took a step towards me and I admit it, I flinched.  His smile faltered and was replaced by a calculating look.  “Ah, I see.  The cat is out of the proverbial bag, is it not?”  He looked at Isaac who gave him a Gallic shrug.  “Well, then,” Salvador continued, his smile returning, “aren’t you going to greet your father properly?”  He held out his arms like he expected me to run and throw myself at him.

“No thanks, I’ll pass.”  I stepped back, putting more distance between us.  I looked at Tomas, Salvador’s lieutenant and a fellow dhamphir, who had also risen from his seat.  His expression was shocked, his normally ruddy Mediterranean complexion pale.  I couldn’t help myself and I laughed.  “At least I wasn’t the last to know.”  Tomas scowled at me.  We have a love-hate relationship.  We love to hate one another.

Peace and Quiet

Pax Lightfoot’s name means peace, but peace is hard to come by these days.  Born with the gift to hear the thoughts of others, Pax struggles to make it from day to day without losing her mind – until she meets Tyler that is.  Tyler is an oasis of calm in a sea of chaos and Pax finds herself drawn to him.  He’s more than she ever imagined, but is she enough for him?

Tyler enjoys the single life.  As a member of the exclusive Yacht Club, Vancouver’s most elite invitation-only BDSM club, he has his pick of playmates, all of which share in his particular kind of kink.  So why is he attracted to the fiery little red-head?  She may have curves in all the right places, but her sweet and innocent demeanor screams vanilla.

Can these two opposites attract?

Two for One – Excerpt

A shudder passed through Kimi’s body as she remembered the night before.  God, she needed to get laid.  Shaking her head, she grinned to herself at the thought and reached behind her back to find the pull cord attached to the zipper of her wetsuit.  The neoprene suit had been one of the best things she had packed when she left Honolulu.  Without it, she doubted if she could have continued her daily morning swim ritual; the water was just too cold on this side of the Pacific.  She tugged on the cord, cursing at the zipper which habitually got stuck.

“Hey there, need a hand with that?” The voice was deep and smooth.  Kimi turned in surprise and came face to face with the speaker’s Adam’s apple.  She looked up, shading her hand from the sun to see his face.  He was tall, lean and tanned, or maybe he just naturally had a darker skin tone.  He wore a day or two’s worth of whiskers, but they only helped to give him that sexy bad-boy look.  The crown of curly, blonde hair only added to the effect.

When life gives you brownies, make coffee.

Angharad ‘Harry’ Russo has had a busy week.  She’s fended off a swarm of pixies, battled blood-thirsty redcaps and put an end to a maniacal Fae prince hell-bent on eradicating the entire werewolf population.  She’s also decided to open a coffee shop.  Is it too much to ask for things to settle down so her life can go back to normal?

Apparently it is.  As if being metaphysically bound to Cian Nash, the most aggravating yet desirable man she’s ever met, isn’t enough, Harry’s just found out that the Magister, the biggest, baddest vampire around, is her father.  Talk about your daddy issues!

Harry just wants to concentrate on getting the coffee shop open, but between the freaky ghosts that keep haunting her and rogue vampires terrorizing the city, it looks like normal is a thing of the past.

From the Heart – Excerpt

“Are you all right?”  DB rose from his seat.

“I’m fine, just a muscle cramp or something.”  Daisy frowned and rubbed her hip.

“Here, come sit down a minute.”  DB took her by the elbow and led her to a chair.

“I’m fine, really.” Daisy pulled her arm from his grasp.

“Sit.” DB hadn’t meant to sound so demanding, but he found the Dom in him reacting to her sub.  He fixed her with a look that told her he expected no protest.

Daisy swallowed visibly and slowly sank into the chair, averting her eyes from his.  Her skin flushed and she felt the flutter of sexual arousal.  Damn it! No, not now!  She shouldn’t be sexually attracted to a potential client.

“Really,” Daisy’s voice wavered and she paused to clear her throat, trying to get her libido under control.  “It was just a muscle spasm.  I’m fine.”

DB knelt beside her and lifted her leg from the floor.  Daisy sucked in a breath.  He looked at the four-inch wedge on her foot and raised an eyebrow.  “It’s probably from walking around on these stilts,” he said with a wry grin.  “I don’t know how you do it all day.”

Daisy laughed nervously.  His hands felt warm on her skin.  “They’re a necessity for someone as short as I am.”  She sucked in another shocked breath as he began to massage her calf, moving his hands slowly up her leg.  He reached the edge of her skirt where it sat just above her bare knee and she gasped, pulling her leg from his grasp and setting her foot on the floor.  “Thank you.  I’m fine.”  She raised her eyes to meet his and blinked.  It took every ounce of control she had to keep her eyes on his and not look away.  She cleared her throat again and rose from her seat.  “I’ll just…”  She raised her hand and gestured towards her makeshift cooking area.  “I’ll just finish setting up.”

Damn the Man

DB quote

 

From the Heart – Excerpt

“No, sorry…that needs to go over there, by the bar area.”  Daisy pointed the delivery man in the right direction and then turned back to look over the room.  It was all coming together, for the most part anyway.

Suddenly frowning, she shook her head and called out, “Wait! Wait!” and hurried over to where another pair of workers were setting up the bar height tables.  “They need to be spread out more.  Don’t bunch them all together.  People need to have room to mingle.”  She showed them where each table should go, ensuring a nice traffic flow around the area and out to the deck.

Backing up to take in the whole room, she suddenly collided with a hard, unyielding body.  “Oh!  I’m sorry…” She turned to face the owner of the body, her hands on his chest. “Oh!  It’s you.”

DB grinned, grabbing her wrists to steady her.  “Try not to look too disappointed.”

“It’s not that, it’s just…”

“You’ve been avoiding me.”

Daisy frowned and pulled her arms away from him, backing up a step.  “I have not.  You’re a busy man and I’m a busy woman.  Our schedules just haven’t overlapped.”   That and the fact that she had tried to time any visits to the site as early in the morning as possible in the hope of avoiding an encounter just like this one.

“And the club?”  DB looked at her with raised eyebrows.  “Are you too busy for the club as well?”

“As a matter of fact,” she started to reply but stopped at the heated look in DB’s eyes.  She cleared her throat and then stood up straighter, thrusting her chin a little higher in the air.  “I’ve been very busy.  Besides, what I do in my leisure time is not something I generally discuss with clients.”

DB grinned mischievously.  “Uh huh.  You’re just chicken.”

“I’m what?” Daisy looked at him in mock outrage.

“You’re afraid to go to the club because you know I’ll be there and you can’t keep your hands off me.”

“I…I…most certainly can!”

“You had your hands all over me a second ago.”  DB grinned at her.

“I…that was different, I was just catching my balance.”  She looked at him, her cheeks burning.  Damn the man.  He was teasing her and she was letting it get to her.  She cleared her throat again…
