My teaser this week is from Electric Candle, book 2 of The Sleepless City (series cowritten with Anne Barwell).
“He’s not there. I swear to you, a man followed me. While I was waiting for you, I could see him out on the sidewalk,” Blair blurted. “He got close enough to me I could do what you told me to do, I listened to his body. I could hear something moving inside him, but he wasn’t giving off any heat or smell. He was a little taller than me, lighter red hair, glasses. He was trying to look geeky, but it was fake.”
“How’d you know?” Lucas asked.
“He asked me about smartphones in the store.”
“Could have been a ploy to talk directly to you,” Lucas said.
Forge nodded, leaned against the desk and stared at the monitor. “Apparently, we have something that can hide from a camera or doesn’t show up on one, but isn’t a vampire.”
“You believe me?”
That surprised Forge. “Of course, I believe you.”
“Why do I have the ‘we’re screwed’ feeling?” Lucas asked.
“There was another murder. Lucas and I had just gotten back from checking things out when you arrived. This time the victim was a werewolf. An adult male werewolf, and either he had changed or was in the process of changing when he was killed. Do you have any idea what sort of force is needed to bring one of those guys down?” Forge asked.
Blair shook his head. “I never thought about it.”
“Think about it,” Forge said. “A werewolf in full form is one of the most powerful creatures around.” Blair’s gaze shifted to Lucas for a second, then back to him. “They’re not all as sweet and friendly as Lucas, and I sure as hell wouldn’t want to go up against one.”
Electric Candle is available in eBook, paperback and through Kindle Unlimited. Right now the eBook is 50% off ($2.99) and the paperback has been marked down to only $9.99.
