Snippet from Ruins & Revenge featuring Tam & Talon

Uncategorized Add comments


I’m working hard on Ruins & Revenge and will be turning it in for editing on March 1. We have a publication date of May 2. As soon as it goes on pre-order, I’ll let you know.

And thank you so much for all the kind words and reviews for The Ghoul Vendetta! If you want to, I’d love it if you posted a review. It really helps when people are looking for new books/authors. Thank you!

Now, for your reading enjoyment, here’s Tam & Talon (with a special appearance by a notable villain’s mom):

She saw Talon and smiled. “I see you brought your mongrel. Were you afraid he wouldn’t live one day at court without your protection?”

I was prepared to restrain Talon if necessary. It wasn’t necessary. He stood straight and still by my side, temper not only held in check, a hint of a smile curling his lips and a glint in his eyes.

A dangerous glint, but perfectly controlled.

I felt a surge of reassurance—and pride.

“I fear nothing concerning my son,” I said.

Talon’s smile broadened into a wicked grin.

My wicked grin.

Pride came again, and hot on its heels was concern. I knew what that grin meant when I was wearing it.

Talon was up to something. More accurately, he was up to no good.

His power wasn’t building.

It was already there. Ready to release, but held in perfect check.

I knew it, but Sandrina didn’t appear to have a clue. Or if she did, she dismissed his skills as beneath her own. She would realize her mistake when Talon unleashed on her.

    Great. I am really looking forward to this. But I should warn you – that has been true this the first book.

    Thank you, Mary! ; )

    I love these snippets! And I love the interactions between Tam and Talon. It was fun getting to see more of them in Treasure and Treason.

    I’m really curious about how Tam found out about him. Obviously he didn’t know about Talon while he was growing up. Did Talon go looking for a job and Tam realized this was his kid, or did he discover Talon and offer him the job?

    Lisa, I can’t stand it!!
    I’ve a HUGE crush on Tam: his picture on his ‘breakout’ novel has got me drooling; that sidewise smile, those eyes!! Can’t wait for the next book!
    And you’re tantalizing me with another Raine adventure?? AARgh!!
    Sighhh. Guess I have to wait.
    Oh, well.
    Hugs!!
    Peace, Tina
