A Bite in Time
by Viki Lyn & Vina Grey

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

A dangerous secret, a vampire, plus one sexy cop is a recipe for trouble.

JOHN REEDER has accepted his love for VINCENT KAMATEROS, but he doesn’t know his lover is a vampire. When aderanged vampire targets Vincent, John has to deal with uncovered secrets that blow his life apart.

Will Vincent reveal his true nature to protect the cop who has come to mean more than his own life? In doing so, he might ruin his only chance for a ‘happy ever after’ with John.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Excerpt:

Euro for your thoughts?” Vincent teased as he kissed John’s neck.

Maybe a dollar. At least I can spend it at home.” John touched Vincent’s face. “I wish we had another day, that’s all.”

Vincent kissed him and John’s cock nudged forward.

John pulled away. “We better get going. Shower first.”

Good idea.” Vincent charming smile hinted of mischief.

Warmth spread across John’s chest. Shit. He was officially a sap reacting so easily to Vincent’s charm.

Biting his lip, he stood and pressed one hand on Vincent’s shoulder, stopping him from rising. “Alone.” How to explain the need to build back his defenses, so once they returned to Arizona, his relationship with Vincent existed, once again, in the privacy of their homes.

We’re leaving in an hour,” John added, putting an end to fooling around.

Vincent leaned back on his elbows, his legs stretched out giving John an eye full of what he’d miss showering alone. John ran his hand across his scalp, ogling but not caring.

More reason for me to shower with you,” Vincent said. “Once we’re home, you’ll stuff me back into the closet.”

The hairs on John’s nape stood as a flint of anger lit in him. Vincent read his thoughts and it was goddamn irritating. Then his shoulders slumped. Jesus. A big, bad cop scared of coming out. It had been a few months since he committed to making their relationship work. He was beginning to trust Vincent completely, and planned to make headway, but damn if he hated Vincent baiting him about coming out.

Didn’t Vincent get it? He didn’t like being pushed against the wall. And yet he had made a promise he would make the attempt. That he wouldn’t let his attitude come in the way of a relationship. To be fair, Vincent held back his impatience, most of the time.

This has been great,” John waved his hand to take in the room. “But it’s a far cry from Arizona. Julie knows, and I’m going to tell Free, but I’m not ready to tell my peers or my parents.”

No matter how much he craved for an open relationship, once back in Arizona, he’d be Detective John Reeder, straight son of Irish Catholic parents. Sure he’d made slight progress, telling his sister he was gay. But from asimple thing like telling his sister who’d already guessed to coming out to his parents was a long fucking way. Yet, guilt overwhelmed John every time he pulled back from Vincent’s touch in public, the hurt in his lover’s eyes eating at him.

Vincent slipped on his robe, his good-natured teasing vanished. “John, when will you face who you are? A gay man with a boyfriend who loves you. I refuse to be treated as a shameful secret.”

Love? Did he say love? Oh fuck.

I'm the author of several gay romances, including Last Chance, Rainbow Award winner for the Best Gay Paranormal/Horror. Viki’s website is http://www.vikilyn.com/;

Vina Grey loves writing about romance. Two people finding each other, the two-step before they get together and the happily ever after, have to be the best story ever.

  2. HI everyone,
    If you've been at the last stop, you'll know I am all turned around in time after being out the country for the past 3 weeks. Hence, I'm here, all clean and shiny to start my day at the somewhat ungodly hour of 4:29 AM.
    So, as ya'll check out the book cover - who's the fave - John or Vince? I have to admit mine changed with this cover (nope, not telling ).
    Cheers, Vina

  8. I just got home from grocery shopping after cleaning the house. My household chores are done for the week! I wanted to stop in and say hello! Hmm. I love John's blue eyes but I'm partial to Italian good looks - and Vince has them in spades. Decisions...decisions...I love both of our males equally. :)

  10. Thank for hosting this post Chris :) I find this excerpt very enlightening and I can sense Vince's frustration and how much he holding back that he is been hurt by John's reluctance to show his affection or that they are in a relationship. John in turn can see the hurt, but is not ready and seems more afraid when Vince declares his love. I so look forward to reading this book, if John is afraid to show his love and be with a man, how will be able to show that he is in love with a man who is also a vampire?

    Thank you for the giveaway :)

  13. Thank you so much Chris for hosting us today! It's been great fun reading all the comments. I can't decide between John and Vince, since they are both equally wonderful in my eyes. :) Vince has the dark smoldering looks and John, while more clean cut and the American boy next door, is a bit vulnerable with those baby blues!

  15. "A dangerous secret, a vampire, plus one sexy cop is a recipe for trouble." You had me at hello.

    John or Vince? I cannot decide. I like double the trouble.

    Viki & Vina, what are the perks and challenges of writing a book with another person? It seems like it could be fun, but tricky.
