Hey, and welcome to another Seductive Studs bloghop.
Today, instead of giving you a snippet, I thought I’d show you the difference between vampyr and drakyl.
Vampyr: (plural is Vampyr) (pronounced vampire) Evil, creature of the undead. Created through death and pain. Sun and silver can instantly kill them. Vampyr must stay to the night or to somewhere extremely dark. They live to control, to destroy, and to feed. Human blood is their only food source. They hate drakyl.
Drakyl: (plural is drakyl) (pronounced drah-ˈkül) a blood-drinker created through genetic means. Historians assume drakyl are a genetic link between both the human and vampyr races. A gene, passed down through certain human births, once activated, turns a human male into a drakyl. Very few who contain the gene actually turn into a drakyl. Only males are affected. Their heart beats and their skin, while pale, is still considered ivory as long as they are well fed. Human blood is their best food source, but they can get by on animal blood. If well fed, they can be in the sun for a few minutes. Otherwise, the sun can harm or kill them. More humane than vampyr, they are hunted by their enemy. Weaker than the vampyr, they rely on their wits alone to escape.
They aren’t the only paranormal creature in the Drakyl Ranch series, but they are the ones you meet in Discovery.
Living in Montana and working the ranch is all Aaron wants to do for the rest of his life. Diagnosed as allergic to the sun thirteen years previous, every day is a struggle to get out of bed. Having to wear long-sleeved shirts, gloves, and even material to cover his face from the effects of the sun, just makes it all worse. Now, in his thirty-second year, he is sure this will be his last summer. While he hates it, he knows he needs to come to terms with the truth and put things in order for his younger cousins. Before he does so, he heads out for one night of pleasure before facing what’s coming.
Jaret loves excitement and new adventures. For over five hundred years, he has sought them out. In Montana on a whim, he comes across someone he doesn’t expect, someone who makes him feel things he does not understand and does not want to give up. In no time at all, he feels like he cannot live without Aaron. The only problem is Aaron doesn’t know who he is, what he is, nor that he isn’t going to die. Not on Jaret’s watch. With a plan to help the other man discover who he is in place, he only has one thing to worry about: whether an ancient enemy will come and destroy everything he now holds dear.
Warning: This book is a paranormal m/m romance with some horror elements. It also crosses cowboy and vampire genres. If you don’t think cowboys look hot with fangs, you’re missing out.
