Maelstrom Chronicles

Jody Wallace
Release Date: July 28, 2015
Genre: Science Fiction Romance
Publisher: Entangled
Book Description:

Captain Nikolas EstherVorn is a traitor. Or so it was decreed after Niko disobeyed protocol while trying to save Earth from other-dimensional creatures. Stuck in a prison cell, the last thing he needs is to be in close proximity to sexy-as-sin Dr. Sarah CallenJoseph. Not with him damn near ready to break out just to get to her.



Niko’s desire isn’t quite his own…and Sarah can prove it. He—along with the other soldiers on the disastrous mission—were drugged with some kind of toxin. Niko has no clue how the drug got into his body or why, but Sarah suspects there’s a link between the toxin and the fertility crisis of Shipborn humans.



To investigate is forbidden. But as lust becomes something deeper, binding them together in a way neither expected, Niko and Sarah must battle time—and their superiors—to uncover the secret that could save humanity…or destroy it.

A growl from behind made my skin crawl. I whipped around. Florian’s face

was grim, his posture unnatural and stiff.

The hairs on my arms stood on end, and I suppressed a shudder. “Are you all

right?”

“Can’t.” He propped his hand against the wall. “Not feeling well.”

My gaze followed the direction of his stare. Large crimson stains pooled on

the immaculate living room carpet. Oh crap. Blood.

I turned back. Florian’s pupils dilated to form two black marbles, trained on

me. His canines lengthened, coming to sharp and lethal points. The pounding of

my heart overrode my motor skills, and for a second, I stood rooted to the spot.

This wasn’t how I’d envisioned his secret being revealed to me. I’d pictured

cupcakes, and maybe tissues at the relief of finally being straight with each other,

not a full-out blood frenzy.

Finally, the switch labeled “common sense” flipped and triggered me into

action. I fingered the guards in my pockets. The small plates were my only chance.

Excerpt 2:

Parker placed both elbows on the table, rested his chin on one hand and

regarded me for a moment. “So, Ivy. A P.I., eh?” He smacked his lips. “Don’t take

this the wrong way, but you don’t exactly look like Philip Marlowe.”

“Your point being?” I squinted.

“You’re tiny. I mean, I’m sure you can take care of yourself. What if you

need to overpower a 200-pound man, though? Do you at least know how to shoot

your gun?”

“Shoot?” I scrunched my nose. “Yes. Aim and hit the target? Not so much.

The last guy who made fun of my size still walks with a limp.”

“See, you hit one target right.” His eyes glinted.

I lifted my gaze. “I was aiming for his groin.” I squished my cupcake and

shook my head. “No, I don’t carry a gun. And believe it or not, my size is an

advantage. If you were an unfaithful husband and I followed you to a bar, trust me,

I’d go unnoticed among the usual throng of people.”

Parker’s grin turned mischievous. “Well, Veronica Mars, I hate to be the

bearer of bad news.” His voice reverberated through my nervous system. “I’d

notice you.” He sipped his coffee. “If I was an unfaithful husband, that is.”

When everyone’s existence depends on the lies they tell, trust doesn’t come easy
Ivy’s neighbors have a secret. They aren’t human. But Ivy has a secret, too. She knows. As long as everyone keeps quiet, she’s happy working as a P.I. by day and chillaxing with her BFF Florian, a vampire, by night. When a routine pickup drops her in the middle of a murder, her two worlds collide. While Florian knows how to throw a punch, deep down he’s a softie. His idea of scary? Running out of hair product. It’s time Ivy faced facts. Even with a vampire on stand-by, one gal can only kick so many asses.
For help, she must put her faith in others. A human, who might just be the one. A demon, who will, for a price, open the doors to her heritage. And a werewolf, who wants to protect her from herself.
Torn between these men, Ivy must tread carefully, because one wants her heart, one wants her body, and one wants her dead.
