May 10th Upcoming Release: Blood Run Cold by Aleksandr Voinov and Raev Gray
I'm serious. Totally not kidding. Yes, they just came out with Test of Faith, and they've already got another one. How much do I love prolific authors?! I don't know that I've ever waited only a few days for another new release from an author. LOL, I haven't even read Test of Faith yet!
And look at this cover! Again...awesome. I'm pretty sure that I saw over on Aleksandr Voinov's blog that this one was done by Raev Gray too. How awesome are her covers?! I think I'm going to have to check out her design work too. We may have to do some blogging about that. With my photography, photoshop and drawing, I've got to say... those covers just float my boat. Beautiful.
Blood Run Cold by Aleksandr Voinov and Raev Gray
Release date: May 10, 2010 by eXcessica (first published 2010)
Description: After an "incident," Frederik Berg, a financial consultant with a reputation for shady business practices, is hired by the Dalcas, a family of ancient and influential wealth. The patriarch, Lucian, takes an interest in him. He is intrigued by Frederik's sociopathic nature and wants to keep him as a pet-literally. Lucian reveals himself to be a vampire, and in him, Frederik finds what he has been looking for all along: a predator even more dangerous and fearsome than he is, someone he can submit to.
But there is bad blood all around. Lucian has two children: jealous, opportunistic Elena and quiet, slippery Emil, who takes it upon himself to uncover Frederik's past and use it against him. That past comes in the form of Ghislain Saint-Denis and Prince Hasan, who were involved in Frederik's "incident." Though he intended to use them, Emil finds himself growing attached to both men.
When Lucian promises to make Frederik a vampire, Emil fears for his lovers' safety, knowing that Frederik will take his revenge upon Ghislain and Hasan. Emil tries to protect them, but he can only do so much. And Lucian has no intention of keeping Frederik leashed. Meanwhile, Elena has plans of her own. She is jealous of both her brother and her father, and intends to make sure that all of their pets meet their end.
Both sides strike their blows, and family tensions come to a head. Soon it becomes clear that not everyone will survive the conflicts.
