Coming Soon: Warrior Bound

Cover of Warrior BoundJust wanted to give you a sneak peek at what’s coming in 2012!  I got the rights to Blood Hero back from the original publisher, and have decided to revise it and republish.  I want to continue the story of Rihat and Iltani, so I’m also working on a sequel.  My plan is bundle the two short stories, Blood Hero and Monster in a single volume, titled Warrior Bound.

For those of you who bought Blood Hero when it was available from Excessica, just email me a copy of your receipt, and I’ll send you the new version in the format of your choice as soon as it’s available.

The lovely cover for Warrior Bound was created by the even lovelier author/artist, Laura Morrigan.

Faery’s Bargain Nominated in Preditors & Editors Poll

REVIEWS FOR BLOOD HERO

—+An All Romance Ebooks Bestseller+—

“Hot, exotic, fast-paced and downright mesmerizing, this is one short story lovers of the erotic won’t want to miss.”

–Amanda, Rants-n-Raves

“The sex was hot…Though this was an erotic paranormal read, it was so much more. The plot was fully realized, creating a new world, new rules and an intriguing story.”

–LynneMarie, HEA Reviews

“Ms. Drake does a wonderful job of bringing action, sensuality, and passion into the story. The way she writes is intelligent and kept my attention. …Although this is the first story that I have read by this author, it certainly won’t be the last.”

–Claudia Rhyes, Manic Readers

“This is a very short, fast-paced read that left me breathless. I was hooked from the first page, drawn in by the fabulous writing and the original plot. This story is so well written it’s almost as if you can feel what the characters feel, especially in the sex scenes. The battle scene was so realistic I discovered my heart was actually pounding as I read and when Rihat was injured, I felt the pain he felt. In the final chapter I found I had been holding my breath as I read on to discover if Rihat survived.”

–Strega, The Pagan and the Pen
