Book #2 of the Children of Khaos: The Originals, Death’s Lover is finally back in digital!
Now for those who just want to read your copy, feel free to ignore the rest of this post and buy Death’s Lover at: Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Kobo, Scribd, Amazon US, Amazon UK, Amazon AU, and Amazon CA.
For those of you who want to know why the book is published a month earlier than I told everyone it would be, about the book, and read an excerpt of the story, keep reading.
Okay, so Death’s Lover has been published a whole month earlier then planned and there is a very good reason for that. When I started to get it ready for publishing, I set it up with some new distributors as a pre-order, and then I went in to update at the old book distributors I decided to use again. Only after I had input the new information, uploaded the new cover, and replaced the book document, did I realize that by updating it rather than creating a new book that I couldn’t place it up as a pre-order.
Since there are readers who have already bought it, I decided to laugh it off as learning moment and move on to the next story.
Not sure if you want to buy Death’s Lover, well let me tell you what the book is about:
Saved by a stranger, Lilith was given another chance at life. But when her ability to see a person’s death attracts the attention of the warlord Adman, her fate is sealed. Adman will do anything, kill anyone, to possess her talent. And the only one standing between him and Lilith is Death himself.
Thanatos is no stranger to death. He’s seen every possible way there was to die. When he crosses paths with Lilith, he finally sees an end to the tiresome duty of collecting the souls of dead mortals and taking them to the Underworld for judgment. But to save her, Thanatos will be forced to break every ancient law, and even a few newer ones, and in the end it might cost them both their lives.
And if you’re still unsure, have a small taste from the book:
“Don’t insult me!” Nadral shouted. “I could easily get twice as much for her!”
She reached for the latch.
“It’s all you’ll get from me,” a man growled, and the voice chilled her to her soul.
She snatched her hand back, ready to run. She needed to hide before they saw her. But it was already too late.
The door swung open, and a large man stood in the doorway, staring down at her. He hadn’t changed in five years. He was still a handsome man. His frame was fit and lean, clothed in supple leathers. His body was strong and taller than most men. Her fingers itched to release his long, sandy blond hair from its tie and run her hands through the silky length. It was his only outward show of vanity. Many of the warriors in the ranks of his army cut their hair short. But he refused after she’d once admired the color and mentioned loving longer hair on her men.
Her body warmed at the memory of long nights in his bed. Sex with Adman had been adventurous and beyond pleasant.
“Lilith?” he breathed, stepping closer to her. His brown eyes warmed, and the backs of his fingers brushed lightly against her cheek. A gesture that was both tender and possessive. “Kar’ela par’ja.”
Lover of my heart.
Her heart flipped in her chest at his words and for one moment she deluded herself into thinking that he meant it. This was the man who’d come to take her from this life of slavery. She could be his again. She could be free of Nadral. All she had to do was betray everything she believed and held dear. She’d have to go with a murderer of innocent people.
“She’s mine,” Nadral snarled, grabbing her arm.
His punishing grip twisted her arm, and tears sprang to her eyes. He jerked her to his side, and she stumbled, nearly falling to her knees before regaining her feet. She dared a glance at Adman beneath her lowered eyelashes, and fear rose to swallow her whole.
His youthful face, innocent in appearance, could not hide the coldness of his soul. His look said it all. He would have her. He would destroy everything to possess her. And he would kill anyone standing between him and what he wanted.
She laid a calming hand on his arm. “Nadral, please—”
His hand struck her cheek, silencing her warning. “This is between men!” He shoved her through the doorway and she fell to her knees.
