Warrior's Heart is finally published. It would have come out a bit sooner, but I suddenly decided on Monday that the book needed an additional scene towards the end. So I wrote about 1.500 words, which I then needed to send to my editor to be checked. Good thing too, because they came out with quite a lot of changes. A huge thanks for Lee Burton for editing it so fast.
Here's the cover again and the blurb. You can find a longer excerpt here. I hope you enjoy the book. Your opinions are most welcome.
Warrior's Heart. A Two-Natured London Novel.
"Who the bloody hell are you, and why are you here?"
When an apparent human-on-human shooting turns out to have non-human origins, vampire DI Philippa Audley is ordered to investigate. It would be easier, however, if she hadn't been ordered to work with Jasper Grayson, one of the legendary vampire warriors of the Crimson Circle. An old-fashioned relic of a bygone era with very peculiar notions of what a woman can and can’t do is not an ideal partner for Philppa who has made a life’s career of being the first vampire woman in everything. It doesn’t help either that her late father, a Circle warrior himself, was Jasper's last partner.
Jasper Grayson isn’t very accustomed to vampire women, let alone a woman as unique as Philippa who is used to giving orders and being obeyed. His Hunger compells him to protect her, but how is he to protect someone who refuses to listen to very reasonable commands to stay safe? And how is he to gain her trust when he is keeping a secret from her?
Black magic is afoot and a deadly enemy to vampires forces the pair to find a way to work together. But will they be able to put aside the demons of the past for a shared future?
