Snippet Saturday - SEX, LIES & VAMPIRE HUNTERS

Since it's almost October, I thought I'd get the month started off with a little vampire magic. Enjoy!

Sex, Lies & Vampire Hunters

by Myla Jackson


Blurb

Night shift emergency room nurse, Julie Taylor is on the verge of a great love affair and steamy sex after a really long dry spell. Her soon-to-be lover, Roger, is everything a girl could wish for. Tough cop, sexy as hell man and really nice guy, he's her dream come true. But with both of them working wacky shifts, they never find time to be together and her long dry spell is only getting longer. Just when they schedule a night off together, the unthinkable happens. Julie is attacked by a vampire and turned into one of the living dead. With her life over, she's still unwilling to end her sex life. But how do you tell your boyfriend you're dead and one of the bad guys he's sworn to destroy?

Roger Decker dared to love again after his lying, cheating ex-wife fooled around on him left him for another guy. The incredibly honest, sweet and sexy Julie is the only woman who's been able to sneak beneath his armor and resuscitate his heart. Now, when he finally has the time off to tell her how he feels, weird things happen. Strange creatures appear in the night, targeting his newfound love. Does his sweet and loveable Julie have a dark side? Is she like every other woman and lying to him? And why does she totally avoid him during the daytime?

Excerpt



With a worried frown, William blew out a long, steady breath. “Maybe you better sit down.” 

Uh-oh. She didn’t like the way he was stalling. “What, did the landlord evict me and I stumbled out into the street, devastated and homeless?” 

“No, nothing as simple as that.” 

“That’s simple?” Double uh-oh. She perched on the edge of his bomber-jacket brown leather sofa. “Okay, I’m sitting. Just tell me already. I’m dying here.” 

“You can’t die, Julie. You’re already dead.” 

Her mouth dropped open. “Huh?” Who was he trying to kid? She was a walking, talking, gawking person sitting in his living room. “Uh, William. Have you been smoking some wacky weed or something? Hellooooo. If I’m here talking to you, how can I be dead?” 

“It’s complicated.” 

“Try me.” 

“Then keep an open mind.” His eyebrows dropped toward the bridge of his nose in a V. 

“I’m open.” 

“Julie, last night, you were turned.” 

“Turned?” She grasped for any possible meaning she could come up with for the unfamiliar phrase. “Like a fruit held too long on the branch turned?” 

“No.” 

“Like coming out of the closet gay turned?” 

“No.” 

“I give up.” She sat back against the couch, her arms crossing over her chest. “What do you mean?”
“Turned as in from human to vampire.” 

She could have caught flies as low as her jaw dropped. “William, I’ve known you, what, a year and a half, maybe?” 

“Yeah.” 

“And this is the first time you’ve ever done anything remotely weird.” 

“So?” 

“So.” She pushed up from the couch and strode for the door. “I’ll cut you a break. I’m going home to shower and bed. When I wake up, maybe we can start this conversation all over. ‘Cause I know you didn’t just say I’ve been turned to a vampire, and I know you’re not crazy. I’m counting it as a really bizarre nightmare I’ll wake up from after a decent amount of sleep.”
