Author: Elizabeth Noble
Release date: July 12, 2016
Meet the newest members of the Vampire Guard, where legend and myth meet science and technology.
Jonas Forge, vampire. Once a spy and soldier, now a cop, Forge enjoys the life he’s built with his friends in Flint, Ohio.
Blair Turner, PhD. Blair, a vampire and computer hacker with exceptional skills, shares a powerful empathic bond with Forge, his soulmate.
Declan, vampire, ex-pirate, ex-fur trapper, thief, and con man. Declan is Forge’s former lover and soulmate to Lucas Coate.
Lucas Coate, MD, Flint’s medical examiner. A werewolf living amongst vampires, Lucas is also one of Forge’s best friends.
Their lives become complicated when an impending presidential visit throws them headlong into a world of high tech vampire spies and espionage. Recruited into the Vampire Guard by the secret society of the Akhkharu Nasaru, they uncover a werewolf terrorist organization known as the Qiguan.
Together they must thwart a murder attempt on the open waters of Lake Superior while tracking a previously unknown biological weapon controlled by the Qiquan—a weapon that may very well mean death for one of them.

“What are you doing here?” Blair squeaked. He looked up and down the corridor. “You’re not allowed down here.”
Using one finger, Forge pushed against Blair’s shoulder until they were both inside the small cabin and the door was shut and locked. He pulled his shirt off. “I was planning on sleeping here. I’m tired. I’ve been all over this ship at least six times today, and my feet hurt. You might not be allowed in my cabin, but nowhere in the rules does it say I can’t be here.”
“But I gave your roommate, the little weasel, two hundred bucks and my key card and told him how I’d seen his hot roommate and just had to tap that.” Forge stopped, grinned, and then sighed when Blair’s raised eyebrows told him Blair had caught his little fib. “Okay, I caught him with some teenybopper and booze, so I threatened to turn him in if he didn’t find somewhere else to sleep,” Forge said and shrugged.
Blair’s eyes narrowed. “Did you just say ‘teenybopper’ and ‘tap that’? You did not say that. I am not a that to be tapped. You showed some fang, didn’t you?”
“No.” Forge sighed when Blair crossed his arms over his chest and tilted his head. “Maybe. The fact is, Blair, this ship will likely sink at some point, and you’re almost at the bottom. If you get caught in my cabin, it might completely blow our operation if they make you leave. If Jason gets caught in there, the worst that happens is he’s fired and tossed off, which might save his skanky ass if the ship sinks.” He looked around the tiny room, which was barely big enough for the two of them to stand in. “I’m not leaving you alone down here even if I have to sleep on a bunk bed. I’ve already fished you out of Lake Erie once. I have no desire for a repeat in Lake Superior.”
Blair stared at him, mouth open, for another few seconds before throwing himself at Forge and wrapping both arms around his neck. “I love you! Thank you.”
Forge held Blair as closely and tightly as he could for a few minutes before bending his head and kissing Blair’s cheek. “I love you too.” Finally he let go of Blair and looked at the bunk beds. “Which one is yours?”
“Think we can both cram into the lower one?” Blair asked.
Forge wasn’t so sure, but the feelings of relief and gratitude rolling off Blair made him simply nod. It took some shuffling around, but finally they were both squeezed into one bunk. Blair was more on top of Forge than next to him, but Forge didn’t care, and it was plain from Blair’s emotions the arrangement made him happy. They’d likely have a few stiff joints and kinked muscles in the morning, but at least Forge could be assured Blair was safe.

About the Author:
Elizabeth Noble lives by the adage “I can’t not write”. She can’t remember a time when she didn’t make up stories and eventually she learned how to write them down. A part of every day is spent living in worlds she created that are filled with intrigue and espionage. Using a real love of scifi and urban fantasy highlighted by twisty plots she crafts stories taking place in a slightly altered version of our world.
When she’s not chronicling the adventures of her many characters Elizabeth is a veterinary nurse living in her native Cleveland, Ohio. She shares her little brick house with an adorable canine princess and her tabby cat side-kick. Elizabeth is a fan of baseball, basketball (go Cavs and Indians!) and gardening. She can often be found working in her ‘outside office’ listening to classic rock and plotting her next novel waiting for it to be dark enough to gaze at the stars.
Elizabeth received several amateur writing awards. Since being published two of her novels have received honorable mentions in the Rainbow Awards. Her novel Jewel Cave was a runner up in the 2015 Rainbow awards in the Gay Mystery/Thriller category.
