poison kissed

...because I just can't restrain myself any longer.

Shadowfae Chronicles Book #3
28 September 2010

Beyond the veil of magic, a fairy otherworld pulses with glamour and dark beauty... It's a place where passions run deep and dark -- and death is just one kiss away...

Mina is a banshee whose greatest power lies in her siren song. She's beholden to her boss Joey, a snake-shifter who once saved her life and now employs her as a gang enforcer. She refuses to upset the fragile balance between them by admitting that she longs for him, that his embrace is the only thing she craves more than revenge for her mother's death...

When Mina learns that Joey may have been involved in her mother's murder, fury threatens to spill out of her, note by vicious note. She and Joey have always trusted each other to stay alive, but now she's not sure what to believe. The evidence stacked against him -- or the one man who haunts her dreams and burns in her blood...

Is she not awesome? Here's what I had to say in my newsletter:

Mina and Joey are two of my favourite characters from SHADOWGLASS, and when the time came to write book #3 they just wouldn't go away! And that cover looks so much like Mina as I see her.

But aren't Mina and Joey the bad guys? you might ask. Well, yeah. In SHADOWGLASS, they are.

Why write a book about the villains? Hell, why not? And the Shadowfae Chronicles is the perfect place to do it, because to some extent, everyone's bad. But no one really thinks they're the villain in this gang war, and I thought it'd be awesome to read a story from the other side. In POISON KISSED you'll meet the DiLuca clan, demons and hungry vampires and murderous fairies and all. I love this book. It's my favourite so far in the series. Mina and Joey have a... tense relationship. And yes, Kane is in it :)

Yes, it's a new look. Different but complementary to the others. And those of you with sharp measuring eyes may have noticed that it's a different shape, too. The fabulousness of mass market paperback is upon us! It says so, right here on Amazon. So it'll be cheaper! It'll fit in your bag! It'll fit on the shelf next to your other books! And hey, it's pink. Who wouldn't want one?

P.S. A lot of e-books are being repriced (upwards) from April 1 under the new agency model for big NY publishers. If you're sitting on some e-book buying money, this weekend might be a good time to spend it. Just saying.
