Dark Erotic Regency BLOODLUST DENIED #HornyHDay PNR Vampire

Welcome to Horny Hump Day! This is the hop where we share three steamy sentences from one of our books. This week I'm sharing a snippet from the beginning my dark vampire romance, Bloodlust Denied.

In this scene the hero, Alexius, has caught the elusive scent of a woman he is determined to make his own :-)




He turned into another dark alley, the stink of decay and despair wrapping around him in an unwelcome caress of death. But threaded through every beat of this misbegotten city her scent throbbed, rich, vibrant. Closer.


“Phillips takes on a tricky trope in this steamy paranormal novella but navigates it with skill, keeping her characters and readers in the dark for as long as possible and captivating them with the heady sensuality and visceral desire of each scene. The dangerous, addictive passion that singes the main characters is all-encompassing and surprisingly revealing. Though there isn’t room to delve into all the plot twists and characters histories fully, the power and complexity... will leave fans begging for more."

Wow, Christina! Paisley's right...very intense. I get a definite feel for the scene, and in just three sentences. Awesome job...

That's such an interesting mix of sensations.

The comparison between the smell of offal versus the smell of ripe woman is very powerful. And your writing really sings in this snippet. Well done.

So glad you enjoyed the snippet :-) I wanted to capture the underbelly of Regency London in this scene :-)
