Okay, the release for BLOOD AND SAND is only a week away, so I’m giving you one last teaser to tide you over. It’s a shorty, but I’m constantly asked whether or not Gio and Beatrice are going to be in any of the other books, so I hope this answers that question!
Baojia raced through different scenarios, most of them ending with Natalie and him both dead, until he settled on one that had a chance of working. It wouldn’t be pleasant, but he’d at least survive long enough to make sure Natalie would be safe. Turning back toward Pasadena, he gritted his teeth and prepared for the night to get even worse.
He parked a block away, knowing that approaching on foot would be less threatening. As he neared the gate, he heard the fluttering sound overhead and the slight smoky smell that permeated the grounds. By the time he was in sight, the Italian was already leaning against a brick pillar, his guard vampire perched on top with her legs crossed under her and an enormous smile on her face.
“I told you,” she said.
Baojia halted across the street, hands hanging in his pockets as he stared at the fire vampire who stared back.
This was going to suck.
“Giovanni Vecchio,” he said. “I need your help.”
If you can, pop over to the Facebook page today and let me know who you see as Baojia! I’ll have an album up, and I’m curious who you’re thinking of when you read his parts.
