{Blog Tour + Giveaway} Born In Blood - By Alexandra Ivy

SQUUUUUEEEE!!! I am SO pumped to be able to introduce you guys to Alexandra Ivy's lastest masterpiece, Born In Blood!!!

Not only do you get a drool over this beautiful cover, BUT, I get to share part of a Sentinel Story with you!!!


In The Heart Of Darkness
Sergeant Duncan O'Conner has seen it all before. Beautiful erotic dancer, murdered at home, no suspect, no motive. But there's one clue: she's missing her heart. It's enough to make the hard-bitten Kansas City cop enlist the help of a necro--one of the dead-channelling freaks who live in the domed city of nearby Valhalla. It's a long shot, but desperate crimes call for desparate measures.

Lies The Kiss Of Death Unlike the other "high-bloods" in Valhalla, Callie Brown considers her abilities a gift, not a curse. But when she reads the dancer's final thoughts, she senses a powerful presence blocking her vision. This is no ordinary homicide. This is the work of a legendary necromancer who controls souls. A ravenous force that will put Callie's skills to the test, O'Conner's career at risk, and both their hearts on the line. . .literally.

AVAILABLE 12/31/14

Each blog on this tour was given a different section of the Sentinel Story.....ready for my part of the story?? 

Here you go:


Part Two

Which was the only reason she hadn’t slammed the door in Anton Valik’s face the first time he’d shown up, claiming he was a representative from Valhalla.  He was a part of some mysterious order that tracked down high-bloods and he promised there was a place for Charlie where he would be surrounded by people who were like him.

Over the next month Anton had been a regular visitor to her small apartment on the outskirts of Boston, his exotic beauty making her forget how to breath as he’d gently put Charlie through a series of tests and, at the same time, earning his trust.  Eventually he’d invited Charlie to travel to Valhalla where he could learn how to control his powers.

Jayne couldn’t deny her brother the opportunity to fulfill his destiny.  Even if it ripped out her heart to have him taken away.  So she’d dutifully brought him to Valhalla and watched him walk away.  But she couldn’t leave.  Not until she was absolutely, positive they would treat him well.

It’d seemed perfectly reasonable until she found herself facing certain death.

Now she struggled to keep her knees from buckling in abject terror.

If she was going to face the firing line, she was going to do it on her feet.

Then, without warning, the crowd of Sentinels parted and a tall, man strolled toward her.

Anton Valik. 

Her heart slammed against her ribs at the sight of the painfully beautiful high-blood.  It wasn’t just his shoulder-length, dark hair that framed his finely chiseled face that sent electric jolts of awareness through her.  Or the pale eyes that shimmered like silver in the moonlight.   Or even the hard, utterly lickable body that was shown to advantage beneath the thin, v-neck sweater and black silk slacks.  

It was the way he looked at her as if he were seeing straight to her soul.
