Blood In Her Veins Blog Tour/Excerpt/Giveaway



blood in her veins blog tour banner


I lifted one batch of pages and saw the photo of an old man, maybe in

his seventies, with sun-lined skin, sun spots, raised and rough age spots,

kinda brown and freckled all over. Faded blue eyes. He was mostly bald. A

narrow-eyed, mean-looking man, the kind who was raised on whuppin’s,

hardtack, and moonshine, and who hated the world. I flipped through the

three attached pages. The info said his name was Colonel Ernest Jackson,

but there was no mention of military service in the scant record.

The second file showed a digital photo of the vamp in question, Heyda

Cohen. She was tiny and very beautiful. Vamps offered people the change

for lots of reasons, and personal beauty was high on the list. But Heyda’s

intelligent, piercing eyes suggested that she was special in the other ways

as well.

“Heyda was in charge of my personal security and she was contacted

by that human man”— Ming pointed at his photo—“a communication

that carried a threat to me. She tracked him.” Ming’s speech, accented by

her native Asian language, sped up and her syntax grew more fractured.

“Then she met with that human and three of his followers. In a park. In

the city. Then she went away with him. Without contacting us or alerting

her support team, who were waiting in the park, watching. They allowed

her to leave, as she did not appear distressed. We do not know why she

left with him. She did not come home afterward.”

Suddenly Ming was all but wringing her hands, leaning toward me in her chair,

shoulders tense. “The man refuses to see us. Refuses to allow us to see her. He hides in his

compound and . . .” She glanced up at her primo, and her face crumpled.

Her shoulders went up high, and Cai placed a hand on one in tender
