An ancient vampire, an ancient grief…a love that makes his blood sing…
Midnight Playground, Book 2
Aleron is ancient, powerful, immortal…a vampire who idles away his time playing at his favorite haunt, Midnight Playground. His favorite toys: beautiful young men. His game: BDSM, experiencing through the minds of his partners the sensations he can no longer quite feel himself.
The one thing he has vowed to avoid at all costs is love, especially for a woman. In a hundred years he has never been tempted to break that vow—until a lovely mortal woman enters his dungeon to watch him play. And his blood hums the ancient song of long-forgotten desire.
Raised in the Indian slums of London, exotic dancer Meeraj enters Midnight Playground a woman with nothing left to lose, numb to all but the most extreme forms of stimulation. As she watches Aleron’s blood play, she knows only his razor-sharp skills will satisfy. And she catches an odd mental glimpse of the grief that shadows his heart.
From their first touch, they are caught up in a whirlwind of exquisite agony that releases their emotions from the weight of the past. Exposing them to risks they’ve both fought to avoid. Love…and loss.
Warning: Where to begin…? Sex with ancient vampires, sex with hot young men. Spanking, bondage, whips and chains. Biting, stroking, blood and pain. Grief and fear and love again…Hallelujah and amen!
To celebrate, I must, of course, run a contest-or two- and give away some awesome prizes!
I love vampire movies, but one, in particular, is my favorite-and it’s up to you to guess! This one might not be as easy as you’d think. Limit is two guesses per person. The movie is a bit obscure, so think out of the box! Here’s a small hint: one of my favorite rock stars plays one of the vampires. Guess correctly and be eligible to win these gorgeous, blood-red drop earrings that any Midnight Playground guest would wear-human or vampire! These vintage jewels are a deep, dark red at the heart edged in a smoky gray, and are set in beautifully antiqued brass.
**NOTE: this contest is open only to those in the continental US due to prohibitive shipping costs.
