After a Long Absence - Immorati by MK Mancos Releases Again
I put this up on the freebie day since I've been away for so long that I thought it only fair. I never intended to stop blogging, it just kind of happened. This past year or so has been spent moving 90-to-nothing on getting projects done and out the door then working on edits for my pubs. Sometimes more than one edit would hit my inbox at a time. - So, I'm sure you see my delimia. Put on top of that my full time job and you definately have Yatzee.
So, thank you to Linda for her email a few weeks ago asking if I still wanted to be a part of the group. I do.
What else is new. Well, this past Friday marked the rerelease of Immorati from the Wild Rose Press/Black Rose. It's been a long and bumpy road for this story. Almost as much as the Edie and Aidan's.
When the corpse of an unidentified species is found in the woods near Pine Haven, New Jersey along with a human female, anthropologist Edie Campbell is called in by local law enforcement and the medical examiner to help identify the strange humanoid male. The discovery of a heretofore unknown species is thrilling for Edie, up until she realizes the creature has recently mated with the human female.
Questions form with no apparent answers until Aidan LaMont arrives in Pine Haven to identify his cousin’s body. But the secretive Aidan hides as much of the mystery surrounding the strange creature as he explains. And Edie has no doubt that behind his simmering sexuality and amber eyes, he knows much more than he’s willing to tell.
Aidan inhaled; she smelled vaguely of coffee with a hint of mint.
“I’m looking for what killed my cousin.”
Long mink-colored lashes slid shut, hiding her gorgeous eyes. “I’m so sorry for your loss.” A gentle touch on his arm made him stiffen in reaction. Her eyes opened again. “I’m even sorrier for the media intrusion into your family’s sorrow. Chief Urich tried to keep it quiet.”
Aidan wanted to shrug and show it didn’t matter to the Immorati, no one would be able to get close enough to the compound to intrude on their mourning, but he remained silent. “And what is your part in all of this?”
He raised a brow in query. Silence descended on them right before Cletus stepped into their space, cutting off the question even as it formed in Aidan’s mind.
“You need to remove her from this place.”
Aidan understood and took her hand in his and walked to the road. The last thing he wanted was for her to see a Corpesetti in full hunt. He and Cletus might be able to bring him down, but the woman would be a liability.
A crash through the brush was followed by an unmistakable stench. Aidan pushed the girl to the ground, throwing his body on top of her in protection. He felt the air whoosh from her lungs and her breathing stop. Damn, he might have hurt her.
