EXCERPT

The demons that haunted my nightmares were supposed to remain there. 

Yet, they had materialized into the real world and stole what was mine. There wasn’t much I feared, but my life had been turned upside down twice in recent weeks.

When Kingston alerted me that there was an incident involving Anais and her father and that his team was rushing in, my heart felt as if it were being strangled. It took precious moments for me to reach Rob and head down to the car because there was no way I would stay at my office waiting for word on what happened to Anais. Every second that passed without word made my mind race, wondering if the moment she walked out of my parents’ home would be the last time I saw her. After I was told that although James had been shot, Anais was fine and they were transporting her to a safe house, I felt as if I could breathe again.

Once it was confirmed that Kingston had Anais and she was safe, I knew that everything was going to be fine. I trusted Kingston with my life, and I knew that he would do everything in his power to make sure that Anais was okay. 

The slight tremble of my hand as I pulled at my tie told me my feelings about this were completely different. The item of clothing now felt as if it were restricting my breathing, a change from just before I entered my home. The headache that was starting to form would not deter me from what had now become my only purpose: saving her.

Someone kidnapped her and I would drag whoever did this through the bowels of hell to get her back. This was a war and there wasn’t a chance that I would lose.

I pulled my phone out again and clicked a single button to redial the number that I practically had memorized due to how many times I had seen it in the last hour, but I got the same thing every time: Anais’s voicemail. I called both Kingston’s and Carter’s phones and got the same result. Where the fuck is everyone? 

I cussed at myself for not working faster. The extra security measures that were supposed to be in place weren’t due to be installed until Monday. I’m failing her.

EXCERPT

Panic.

Silence.

Fear.

That was all I could hear and feel as I was carried somewhere. I struggled against my captor. My hands were restrained but that didn’t mean I couldn’t make his life difficult. I kicked my legs and moved my body as much as I could. Tears streamed down my cheeks, but they were absorbed by the cloth that covered my face. 

I heard something click to my right and I held my breath, wondering if someone had cocked a gun. I briefly wondered how long it would take for me to feel the piercing pain that my father endured just before he ended up in a pool of his own blood. But nothing followed the sound. I shook my head and felt the cloth that was covering a portion of my face loosen. A few more shakes and I was able to get the fabric below my eyes and I squinted. The blinding light directly over me was disorienting, but for as bright as it was, it did little to light the entire room. It took a moment for my eyes to adjust, but I didn’t know where the hell I was. 

Where is my father? Dread filled my heart as I thought back to the scene that unfolded in front of me. The memory of seeing his lifeless form just before I was kidnapped made my body turn cold. My lips trembled and my teeth chattered as fresh tears burst from my eyes. I shivered, but when I tried to bring my hand forward, I couldn’t. My hands were tied with what felt like some type of plastic. I looked behind me and found that a zip tie held my hands together. 

Fuck. My mind raced because I knew I had to get out of this. Nobody was coming to rescue me and I would have to do this myself. I took a few breaths, calming myself enough to stop the shivers. Now, Anais, what are you going to do? I knew there was no way to break out of this without hurting myself. How can I free myself? Is there a tool I can use to rip these cable ties open? I took another steadying breath and steeled myself before I examined my surroundings.

This room was foreign to me and had barely anything in it. There was a brown sofa, an outdated television sitting on a tiny stand, and I was sitting in a brown chair that had seen better days. I spotted a single closed door, but no windows or any signs that anyone actually lived or worked here. 

Panic once again rose in my throat as the events of the last couple of hours flooded my brain. My heart thumped harder in my chest, and I knew that if I didn’t get myself back under control, fear would take over again. 

I couldn’t allow that to happen because I had to get out of here. I took a deep breath and wondered if I could yell for help. Maybe my kidnappers were gone, and someone would hear me. It wasn’t the best plan, but it was all I had. I took a deep breath and started screaming. I prayed that it wasn’t for naught and that my screams wouldn’t do anything but steal my voice. 

“Help! Help! Help! Is someone there? Help me!”

“Would you shut up!” a deep voice from the corner of the room yelled.

I flinched and my mouth snapped shut. Fear returned tenfold. My heart sped up, beating a rapid drumbeat in my chest. I wasn’t alone.

EXCERPT

“Nice to see you here.” 

I whipped around to find out where the rich timbre had come from. I was startled to find Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome standing just a couple of feet away. His blue eyes shone even brighter now than they had when we’d met in my father’s office a few days ago. I looked to see if anyone was around before my gaze landed back on him. I forgot to breathe for a second as I examined him without trying to make it too obvious. I couldn’t deny that he looked good. 

“What are you doing here?” I asked. 

He said nothing but motioned for me to take a step closer. When I did, he put his hand on my lower back and led me toward a row of windows overlooking the entire city. His scent, a woodsy and spicy fragrance with a hint of something floral, crept into my nose, embraced, and consumed me. Yet there was still a sense of danger that I couldn’t pinpoint. I knew I wouldn’t be able to smell this aroma again without thinking of him. When he stopped walking, I took a step back, even though I craved the warmth his touch brought on my bare skin. It felt very intimate for someone I barely knew. 

“I can’t attend an event to support animals? I do like them, and I assume you do too.”

“Sure you can, but that doesn’t require you to stop me from getting where I want to go. Excuse me.”

I tried to remain as polite as possible as I took a step to the left to get around Damien, but he blocked my path. I moved to the right and he blocked me again.

“Move.” My voice was low and menacing. I didn’t want to cause a scene and embarrass Ellie and her parents, but I also had no problem doing so to get away from him. “Get the hell out of my way.”

“No, and the quicker you realize that no one can tell me what to do, the better.”

I rolled my eyes. “What do you want?” I asked. 

“I have a proposition for you.” 

His eyes were stuck on mine. They didn’t waver once. The blue orbs turned cold when I talked back to him. Confidence oozed off of him, making me feel intimidated by his presence, but I refused to back down. 

“Well?” I asked, waiting for him to proceed. 

“I wanted to talk to you about a deal I have with your father.” 

My eyes narrowed as I tried to figure out what he was getting at. “What type of deal?” 

He put both of his hands in his pockets and said, “I’m sure it comes as no surprise to you that Monroe Media Agency is having money troubles.” 

I could have growled at him because he dared to utter my family business’s name and spread information I hated to say was true. I glanced around once more, making sure no one was within hearing distance before I took a step closer. “This deal was the reason why you were at our office?” 

“Yes, your father owes me money after I offered to help Monroe Media Agency survive about two months ago. I gave him an opportunity to pay it back, but he couldn’t so I extended the deadline. Even with the boost Monroe Media Agency has received recently, it would take a miracle for him to pay me back everything I loaned him.” He paused. “But there’s a catch.”

“And what is that?”

“Your father has six more weeks to pay back the loan, and based on the meeting I had with him and my research, that will not happen.” He licked his lips and continued, “But I have one extra provision I want to include in this deal that, if it happens, would pay off his debt.” 

“Oh, really? And what is that?”

“You.”

I took a step back as my glare became more prominent. “Excuse me? What do you mean me?”

It was clear who was running the show here. One side of his lips curved upward. “I want you.” 

My blood turned as cold as his eyes. “Can you repeat that?”

He took a step forward, entering my personal bubble once more. “I rarely repeat myself, but I’ll make the exception just this one time. I want you.” 

I couldn’t stop the feeling that he had become my worst enemy.

Gian

I knew I’d never have the luxury of choosing my own wife. An arranged marriage was a sacrifice men in my position had to make for their families. It wasn’t something I looked forward to, but it had to be done. 

I just never imagined my father would choose her to be my bride. Daniela Moretti, the daughter of my enemy…and I intended to treat her as such. 

But since the day she set foot in my house as my wife, my loathing of her turned into something deadlier than hate. Her strength intrigued me. Her fight seduced me. And I started seeing more in her than just dirty, filthy Moretti blood. 

Now…she’s gone. Kidnapped. Vanished without a trace. 

But the devil always finds what’s his, and when I do, my thirst for vengeance will be sated by blood.

Please note that The Devil’s Vengeance is book 2 in the Vows and Vengeance duet, and should be read after The Devil’s Vow.

EXCERPTS

#1

Aiden Kilpatrick isn’t some gentleman gallivanting around as a tough guy. He’s a monster. A mafia prince. The devil disguised in a designer suit. But he’s taken that suit off, and now I see the real monstrous thing. 

He stands in front of the red stained-glass window, drenched in bloody light. I swear I see steam rising up from his powerful body. 

My knees clatter together. I have to resist. I have to be strong. 

“You must do as I say, Elisa.” There’s this jagged elegance to Aiden’s rough voice that makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand on edge. It also makes my nipples pebble. I can’t let him see my arousal. Then he’ll take me for sure.

As if he won’t take me anyway.

My father warned me about men like Aiden. Irish devils who burn empires to the ground, along with everybody inside, just to get what they want. 

And right now, he wants me. 

#2

My breaths turn ragged from fear. Bathed in the red light of the bedroom window, Aiden looks like the devil personified. His shirt is off, and his muscular ocean of dark tattoos dances in the darkness. 

I gulp. That hard powerful body of his could snap me in half without breaking a sweat. 

“What do you want me to say?” I manage to sputter out. 

“The truth.” 

When he steps forward, I can see that he is furious. A low boiling anger shadows his handsome face, making him look more monstrous than ever.

Slowly, he crawls over top of me, locking me in a cage of his searing flesh. A whimper escapes my lips as he pinches my chin and forces me to look him directly in the eyes. 

“Are you ready for me now, princess?”

I’m the son of Liam O’Reagan, next in line to wear the crown.

An attraction that has only grown stronger with time.
But, when trouble lands her at my feet, I take the opportunity to have what I truly want.

One night of submission.
One night to have her completely at my mercy.
If only I had known my battle with Maeve would start a war.

Jack is the only one who can help me.
Too bad, he hates me.
But I have no choice but to go to him.
It turns out, hate is a powerful motivator, and I just handed him a way to punish me.
He offers me his help—for a price. Everything in his world has a price.
One night in his bed.
He’s everything a woman would want, so this should be easy. Only, I’m a virgin, and he terrifies me.

I can’t.

EXCERPT

My heart drums too fast as I step into the office. The lush carpet under my feet makes me want to remove my boots so as not to dirty it. The door closes, and all the sound is sucked from the room; all the air is vacuumed from my lungs as I slowly look up towards a large mahogany desk, and sitting behind it is Jack O’Reagan. He’s older, angrier, but he still has the same effect on my heart.

Fury flames through my veins along with a longing that grips my throat. Every thought I have spins out of control. His crystal-blue eyes flash with a quick light before it fades. It’s like a light bulb coming on only to burn out—a flash of recognition that gets swallowed up in a tornado of hostility.

“What do you want? I’m busy.” His deep voice is like broken shards of glass, but I’m glad of it. It pulls me out of my frozen state.

I am bound to him…and shackled to his hate.

{Release Blitz} Blood and Wine

Title: Blood and Wine 
Author: Margot Scott
Genre: Dark Vampire Romance
Release Date: October 29, 2020

BLURB 

A slow-burning descent into darkness and desire…


Betrayed. Imprisoned. Alone.

For decades I have suffered as a reluctant blood donor. Caged like an animal and drained of my strength to enrich the Radcliffs and their winery. I’d forsaken all hope of escape—until the winemaker’s daughter returns to the family’s estate.

A drop of my immortal blood is all it takes to activate her psychic talents. Now we’re connected, and all that remains is convincing her to seek me in the darkness.

Bribe. Seduce. Deceive.

To claim she’s too young is an understatement. But a starving man doesn’t have the luxury of waiting for fruit to ripen. I’ve awakened her gifts, and now it’s her turn to replenish me.

I will have my fill of the winemaker’s daughter. Then I will take revenge on her family.

Author’s note: Please be aware that this book contains scenes of violence, gore, and rough sexual contact, as well as an age-gap pairing spanning literal centuries. If you find drastically inappropriate older man/younger woman romance quickie, do yourself a favor and skip this book.

EXCERPT

I inhale the perfume of lilacs, and watch the horses grazing among the vines. Then I remind myself that it’s October, and there aren’t any horses on the grounds anymore.

That’s how I know I’m still dreaming.

I’ve been a lucid dreamer since I was little, capable of controlling my consciousness at whim while asleep. It’s the one Greyson-like talent I’ve been blessed with, and it’s not even that interesting.

A burst of laughter calls my attention to a couple drinking champagne on the patio. I approach them. They ask if I’m wearing that to the party, and it’s not until I notice how they’re dressed—her in a silk blue wrap dress with ruffles, and him in a fedora and striped jacket—and the way their silhouettes dissolve slightly into the air around them, that I realize they aren’t just stand-ins manufactured by my dream engine.

They’re ghosts. My mom tried describing them to me, but it’s one thing to hear about something and another to actually see it with your own eyes.

Ghosts don’t look the way you might expect, all white-sheeted and billowy. Neither do they resemble rotting corpses. They look like shimmery versions of regular people. A little fuzzy around the edges, maybe, but otherwise normal.

The clamor of horn-heavy music playing elsewhere on the estate coaxes me to step barefooted into the grass. I make my way toward the sound. Sure enough, there’s a party in full swing in the grand foyer. I peek through the windows at the crowd of ghosts having a grand old time, drinking, laughing, and dancing.

I stay and watch for a while and listen to the band play, until a man in a waistcoat comes up behind me and asks if I have an invitation. I run into the field, glancing over my shoulder to make sure I’m not being chased.

A woman in a white dress watches me from a second-story window. I’m not a hundred percent certain, but I’m pretty sure she’s watching me from the room I’m staying in. She’s too far away to note the details of her face, but her hair is long, dark, and straight, like mine. I blink and she’s gone, and her absence unsettles me and sends me galloping further into the grapevines.

The sky hasn’t changed since I awoke into the dreamscape, giving the vineyard a sense of timelessness. Now that I’m away from the house, I make my way down the rows of vines slowly, skimming my fingers over the leaves.

This place isn’t so bad without Edward and his awful relatives making me feel unwelcome. It would’ve been even nicer to have come here with my mother; I could’ve listened to her tell her own stories.

A crow soars overhead and then drops into a cluster of trees. That’s when I spot the man standing with his back to me among the vines.

“Hello,” I call out, moving a little closer. He turns his blond head slowly, like he’s not sure if he heard me. I call out again, “Hello, sir?”

When our gazes meet, I stop advancing. His eyes are so blue they’re almost turquoise. I’m already lost in them, and I just got here. He studies me curiously, like he’s never seen a girl in a Blind Melon tee shirt before.

“Did you say something to me?” he asks.

“I said hello.”

The man looks around, like he’s making sure I’m not actually talking to someone behind him. He’s a pretty big guy, fit and brawny. Maybe he’s the ghost of a laborer, I think, though his clean shirt and fair skin would suggest he’s not one for toiling in the sun. I’d guess him to be somewhere in his mid-thirties. I wonder how long it’s been since he passed on, then remind myself he isn’t real. This place looks like the vineyard, but it’s not the vineyard. There’s no reason my mind couldn’t dream up ghosts just as easily as it cooks up impatient servers.

“How long have you lived here?” I ask. Mom also told me that ghosts sometimes forget they’re dead, and when they do, it’s best not to remind them. Nine times out of ten, whenever there’s an aggressive haunting, it’s because a ghost is confused, or hasn’t yet come to terms with their situation. This man appears lucid enough, and his silhouette is surprisingly crisp, but I figure it’s better to play it safe.

His lip curls slightly. “I’ve been here much longer than I’d like to be.”

“Oh. That sucks.” I’m not sure how else to respond.

Two rows of vines separate us, but even that distance and a coating of golden scruff aren’t enough to mask the fact that he’s handsome. His face is angular without being pointed, his lips full, yet defined. The longer I look at him, the faster my pulse starts to race. Heat floods my face as I force myself to stop gawking at him like some wannabe groupie.

“I’m just visiting my dad,” I say, hoping he won’t notice the tremor in my voice. The man says nothing. When I allow myself to glance his way again, he’s no longer standing in the same spot.

He’s right beside me.

I stagger back a few steps.

“How did you do that?” A dumb question, considering ghosts don’t have to follow the laws of physics in the real world, let alone the nonexistent rules in my dreams.

I hold my breath as the man reaches out to touch my cheek. Somehow his eyes are even bluer this close up.

“How is this possible?” He strokes the sides of my face.

“Anything’s possible in a dream,” I say. He shakes his head in disbelief, like I’m the ghost in his dreams.

“This is why he wants you,” he says, and I have no idea what that means.

“Who wants me?”

His gaze lifts over my shoulder, in the direction of the house.

“It’s time to wake up, Mariah.”

“Why?” And how does he know my name?

“You have a visitor.” He grasps my shoulders firmly enough to pinch and shakes me.

I’m jolted awake, for real this time.

It takes me a second to recall where I am—in bed, in the guestroom, at Red Cliff—and half a second more to realize that I’m not alone.
