A vision. A lost talisman. A dangerous journey
A month after their bonding, Ari and Andreas are still
adjusting to married life when they learn the hard way that the O-Seven, the
terrifying and brutal vampire elders, still have them in their sights. A three
million dollar bounty hangs over each of their heads, and there’s no lack of
assassins eager to collect.
When the local seer has a terrifying vision of the
destruction of Riverdale, it’s up to Ari—as usual—to keep everyone safe. Only
this time, an enemy from the past has bound her fire powers, and the city’s
string of arsons seems connected.
Daron, the vampire prince in Toronto, has information
that two of the vampire elders are on their way to Riverdale. Which can’t be
good. Only a risky and unprecedented journey through time can provide the help
they need. But that will leave Andreas to face the O-Seven alone...

The tracks in the snow gradually moved up the slope
toward the older parts of Riverdale, out of the tourist district, past
residential homes, angling toward the cliff area that overlooked the
Mississippi River. Then it took a sharp swing north.
Ari looked ahead, her gaze following the tracks through
the gate and into the Riverdale Cemetery. "I don't like this." She
came to a stop with one hand on the gate. "Don't you think the trail is a
bit too obvious? As if he wanted us to follow him?" Her eyes scanned the
cemetery grounds for anything unusual, a shadow, a hint of color out of place
among the stones and crypts. The only sizable tracks went behind a tall

"Maybe. But there is a lot of magical interference
in graveyards." Ari frowned. She sensed a flicker of Otherworld power, but
it didn't feel right. Shielded? Would a halfling demon be that good? She eased
through the gate; Ryan followed close behind. Her magic stirred, raising the
hairs on her arms, and she stopped, extending her witch senses to probe the
area around them—tasting, smelling, touching the environment. Her magic roared
"Back!" she shouted. "Power. And lots of
Two gigantic figures leaped from the top of the nearest
crypt. A howling rent the quiet of the cemetery. By the time the creatures
landed—one in front of Ari and Ryan, and the other cutting them off from the
gate—both had morphed into fiery red, eight-foot demons, their eyes deep black
holes. Each carried a metal shield and swung a five-foot mace.
"Hellsgate warriors!" Ari crouched, raising
her fingers to call the witch fire to her command.

Blog Tour GIVEAWAY: Nov. 7-10: Readers and writers always talk about
characters in books, but settings are almost as important, and they play a huge
role in the Guardian Witch series. Wild

important that I'm running a special contest.
