Sinossi

The Hunters, Book 1


WARNING
: Contains graphic language and explicit sex scenes (M/F).


LENGTH: Novella (21,700 words)


Mercy Jansen dreams of erotic interludes with a man whose face she never sees--and she always awakens before the scraping of sharp teeth along her skin turns into something more dangerous.

Even while she questions her subconscious mind, a mundane event sets her on a collision course with a man who makes her knees go weak--and proceeds to turn her preconceived notions of reality upside-down and inside-out by pulling her into a shadowy, violent world where her dreams threaten to become an all-too-real nightmare.

This book was previously published in an altered form by Ellora's Cave Publishing, Inc. in 2008 and is revised.



EXCERPT

"I'm sorry, but guests are not allowed in this area."

He moved deeper into the office. "You sound a little hoarse," he said, ignoring her statement, and held out a flute filled halfway with champagne. "Take this."

Mercy automatically accepted the offering. "Thank you, Mr.--?"

"Edmond," he said, a hint of an accent flavoring the name. It sounded French, which suited the name and his Gallic coloring.

"Thank you, Mr. Edmond."

He shook his head but his hair barely moved. "Just Edmond."

Like just Madonna? she wanted to asked but refrained from doing so.

He lifted his own flute, tipping it toward her. Feeling a little awkward, she touched her flute to his, very aware of his eyes following her every movement. Not wanting to insult a man who'd forked over two hundred and fifty dollars for a ticket to the fundraiser and a potential donor, Mercy took a sip, just enough to coat her mouth and her esophagus.

And squeezed her eyes shut as her head swam and her hand faltered, tilting the flute dangerously. She really should've eaten something beyond the banana and carton of cherry yogurt at lunch.

A hand caught hers. She had the impression of icy coldness a heartbeat before warmth washed over her like rain. The champagne flute was rescued from her unsteady fingers. Despite the voluntary darkness, her head continued to bob like a bottle tossed in the sea. Her hand reached back and found the solid surface of her desk.

"Mercy?"

That compelling voice filled her head, dampening the waves. She exhaled, unaware she'd been holding her breath 'til that moment. A heavy, artificial scent filled her nostrils and she instinctively turned her head away. Satin brushed the naked skin of her legs, cool and slick. His cape. Fingertips skimmed the curve of her cheek, the line of her throat, the slope of her exposed shoulder. And she couldn't protest, couldn't stir herself from the lassitude that trapped her in its silken grip enough to lift her lashes, let alone break away.

The exploration continued, soft and gentle and warm...and somehow familiar. There was nothing to fear from him. That thought whispered through her mind like a tendril of smoke.

Mercy let herself drift, let the sensual pleasure of his touch lull her.

The hand holding hers drew it upward until her palm met a chest that felt like marble under the layer of cloth. Soft lips grazed her jaw line. He whispered her name again. From the jumbled, hazy mess of her thoughts, one question emerged.

"What are you?" she breathed.

Lips brushed her earlobe. "The man of your dreams."

4.0 su 5 stelle One hot novella! 16 gennaio 2012
Di Erin Johnson - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

This book starts out with a bang! Mercy Jansen has been having very streamy dreams of a man whose face she never sees-and she always wakes up before the scraping his teeth along her skin becomes something dangerous. Although Mercy is uneasy and restless, as these dreams have gone on for months, she continues to go about her daily life which includes organizing a costumed fundraiser for the museum where she works. The event is a success, attracting more people than she'd imagined-including her dream man. Mercy soon comes to learn that this isn't the man of her dreams but her worst nightmare. But before things become deadly she is saved by a man who makes her knees go week and who turns her reality upside-down.

I found this to be an excellently written and intriguing story. I'm usually not a fan of novellas but I would make an exception for this author. She does a wonderful job of developing the characters and adding the details necessary to make the story come alive. The story flowed nicely and I didn't even notice that it was novella length because it had a great ending. I look forward to reading more from her!
4.0 su 5 stelle Great novella - sexy paranormal suspense 17 febbraio 2012

4.5 stars

Fast paced and very sexy novella. Mercy has been having erotic dreams for months. She never sees his face; she just hears and feels. Right before her vampire lover can pierce skin, she wakes up. Lately she feels uneasy - like she's being watched. During a museum fundraiser that she hosts, a stranger corners her in her office. When he attacks her, another stranger comes to her rescue and whisks her to safety. When she wakes up, she's instantly attracted to her sexy rescuer.

Ryan McGinnis is a vampire hunter who's been tracking Mercy's attacker, Edmond for a long time. When Mercy is kidnapped for a crazy ritual that Edmond hopes will restore his long lost love, Angelique, will Ryan be able to find her and rescue her once again? Will Mercy shrug off her ice-queen facade and let herself love a man back?

This was a great, quick read. I really enjoyed the action portions of this story - not your usual neck-snapping to kill a vamp. A psychotic vampire for a bad guy is always refreshing. Wish it were a little longer.
5.0 su 5 stelle Good Story with Hot Erotica. 16 gennaio 2012
Di NReads - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

This novella was an absolutely fantastic read. Ann Bruce weaved an engaging story filled with suspense, intrigue, action, & paranormal elements. The story moved at a fast-pace & it wasn't too long or too short; just the perfect amount of mystery, action & hot smokin' erotica. The characters were well-developed as well as the plot & story line. I also liked how Ann Bruce made the vampire the bad guy for a change & not the good hero which I found quite refreshing considering how many books are out there with vampires as the nice guys.

Ann Bruce has a great talent for writing & this one is no exception. Her style of writing is engaging & leaves the reader content & satisfied after the story is finished. Although novellas are harder to execute with well-developed characters & a decent plot, this author excelled at creating both in Before Dawn.

Overall, this was a great read & I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it! Highly recommend this novella.
