Welcome to Annie Nichols' guest blog!

Who Says a Sexy Man has to be Human?

Werewolves, vampires, selkies, werecats to name a few of the creatures that have become popular over the past decade. Feral predators filled with the need to hunt. Men gone wild, bad boys wanting to be good or they are just plain bad. Is it the desire to tame such qualities that draw us to them?

I hope so because that’s what I poured into my heros. Each of them unique in their own way, I’m sure one of them will be to your taste.

Rurik is the dark, playboy Overlord of Budapest. He’s drawn to a beacon of light that is Connie Bence. He’s my bad boy wanting to be good.

Blurb:

Sent on a mission to lure Budapest’s vampire Overlord into a trap, Connie Bence is instead caught red-handed by the dark Casanova. Her employer has concrete proof of the dubious leader’s misdeeds but she is surprised when this ruthless killer, Rurik, offers her protection and rescues her from his own kind. It plants seeds of doubt in her mind and she begins to question his guilt. Now she is thrown into his world where blackmail determines her every move and where she must betray those she cares about or let them die. The stakes are high. She either puts her trust in Rurik or leads him to his execution.

Love or life.

Excerpt


Daedalus is my over confident bad boy who’s world gets rocked by sweet Sugar.

Only a vampire is man enough to teach werewolves how to fight.


BLURB:

Pretty librarian Sugar wants her life to stay quiet. That’s hard enough when friends and neighbors turn into furry wolves every full moon. But when a hot vampire gets involved, life’s bound to get complicated.


The Omega have always been the pansies of the paranormal. Now Chicago’s top werewolf pack has issued them a life or death challenge. Their only option: hire a vampire warrior to teach them the moves.


Daedalus has been a powerful vampire for ages. Intrigued by the chance to train the geeks of the underworld, he wasn’t bargaining on losing his heart to a human. Can he make the Omegas a success, fit into Sugar’s quiet life, and avoid being ripped to shreds in the process?

Excerpt

Nual is the hero gone wild. Born and raised on an isolated planet. He is the first of his race to leave their planetary system with an exotic and beautiful alien, a human female from the far reaches of space.

Where Sadie is all about control, Nual is all about making her lose it.

Blurb:

Assigned as an interpreter to the Cyngi, Liaison Sadie Beckit is left in the dark. Knowledge is power when dealing with multiple races of aliens but this mysterious species has chosen to withhold most of their culture and language information.


Crossing multiple star systems to the remote Cyngi world on an old space freighter, she has come to accompany Ambassador Nual back to Central Station. On their return journey the crew and passengers end up fighting for their lives.


Sadie is forced to confront her past. Difficult choices must be made and the survival of a whole race depends on her decisions. Can she abandon her heart and sacrifice the Red Dawn?
