For this post, I’m giving you a snippet from Discovery, Book 1 of Drakyl Ranch, which was just released this week. Gotta love cowboys and vampires… just sayin’.
In this snippet, Jaret has arrived at the ranch and is trying to figure out what the hell is going on. The place smells of drakyl, but he finds humans there.
Standing up slowly, Jaret held out a hand, confused at the wonderful scent of human blood that poured off the man, along with the fermented scent of lemon. What the hell was going on here? “The name’s Jaret,” he said politely even as the older man’s hand encased his own. It was a human hand and could be so easily broken, but it felt strong enough as it clasped his.
“Davis Drakyl.” Since Davis released his hand and turned toward his nephew, Jaret was able to take a few minutes to put his face back into a careful, calm mask before his shock caught their attention. Drakyl? Their last name was Drakyl? “We can definitely use the help. What can you do?” Taking a chair at the far end of the table, Davis sat down. Almost as though putting himself between Jaret and Aaron. The man knew something, though how much Jaret couldn’t tell.
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.
