Happy Holidays to everyone. We've had a ton of snow here in Northeast Ohio, so I guess it's only fitting that my snippet this week comes from a book taking place in northern Ohio.
Electric Candle is the second in The Sleepless City, a series I wrote with Anne Barwell.
Jonas Forge is a police detective, Lucas Coate is the medical examiner and Blair Turner is Forge's soulmate...
“Want the tour?” Lucas looked excited.
Blair’s expression was suspicious. He glanced around the office and through the door to Lucas’s lab. “Are there dead bodies?”
Lucas grinned. “Kid, it’s a morgue, and I’m a medical examiner. Of course, there are dead bodies.”
“No, thanks, I’ll pass.”
Forge laughed, and he felt Blair relax. “Blair, what’s wrong?”
“Maybe it should wait until we’re back at the castle,” Blair said.
“We can talk here, and Stewie knows about things like vampires and werewolves,” Forge said. He took a step closer to Blair and laid one hand on his forearm for a few seconds. A tingle ran through his hand and the length of his arm to spread across his chest and down his belly to settle in his groin. Blair arched an eyebrow and glanced down at Forge’s hand, convincing Forge he’d shared the experience. Forge didn’t move away, however.
“I was tailed. Some guy, except I don’t think he was human. It was more like he stalked me.” Blair pulled his lower lip between his teeth. “I’d think it sounds crazy except….”
“You’re a vampire having a discussion with another vampire in the office of a M.E. who is a werewolf?” Lucas asked.
