WeWriWa: Welcome to the Jungle!!

Finally! After all the teasing and loooong wait, MIDNIGHT SHADOWS, the latest re-release in my Touched by Midnight vampire romance series is finally available in its resurrected form. Take an ogle at its sultry new cover and at my final sneak peek as a long denied truth finally unleashes a new alliance between my hero and heroine:



She doesn’t believe in monsters . . .

Myth-busting ethnologist, Sheba Reynard's life's work is proving that destructive paranormal beings don’t exist. But while exposing hoaxes, she's also hiding from the frightening shadows in her past that say differently. To find the missing pieces of her memory that continue to haunt her dreams, she must face the truth behind the nightmares . . . a truth that could lead to madness or even death.

He doesn’t believe in death . . .

Frank Cobb knows monsters are very, very real. He's pursued a wily vampire into the jungles of Peru, prepared to face the demon with only his very human skill set. But are his motives—to bring the creature back for government research—purely business or for revenge? Either way, he’s not happy to have an annoyingly strong-willed—and utterly irresistible—woman getting in his way.

Forced together by circumstance, they venture into the shadowy unknown. Only it soon becomes clear that one of them will have to surrender their quest . . . if the other one is to make it out alive.

“Ms. Gideon continues to run in the fore-front of the vampire romance genre. Non-stop action and passion combined in an exotic setting will definitely thrill fans, leaving them craving more. —Kathe Robin, Romantic Times

“Nancy Gideon is one of the best supernatural writers on the market today!"— Midwest Book Review/BookWire

Nancy Gideon is the award-winning author of more than fifty-five novels ranging from historical and contemporary suspense to paranormal, including her Touched by Midnight vampire romance series.

Excerpt


“Sheba, what if the monster is real?” 

She meet his gaze directly, hers expressing her scorn and disbelief, yet there were shadows lurking behind the bravado, shadows he hated like hell to bring out into the open. 

“Real, as in the Fanged Deity the Indians worshiped before the Incas? Oh come on, Cobb, you can do better than that.” 

His expression remained somber, his stare unblinkingly sincere as he vowed, “Sheba, there are monsters, and I know this one by name.” 

She tried to laugh it off but the attempt at humor lodged in her throat, a hard, choking lump of horrible truth. She knew Cobb wasn't lying to her, but to say she believed him was to let her own personal demons loose, and she wasn’t ready for that yet. 

“I’ve heard a lot of different names, Cobb. Which one are you picking?” 

“Vampire.”

Writing is on a temporary hiatus as I scramble to get things ready for the June 20, 2016 release of the first boxed set I’ve ever participated in along with eight other uber talented authors (What a learning curve!). My addition to PARANORMAL ATTRACTIONS is REMEMBERED BY MOONLIGHT from my By Moonlight series. PARANORMAL ATTRACTIONS is now available for pre-order through Amazon. Check out this lush cover! More to come on this next week . . .



Now, out to dig in the dirt and get some Vitamin D therapy (Finally! Last Sunday there was snow!!).

  4. I can feel the tension building, not between them, but between them and the jungle. Not sure I'd want to travel in any farther. Nice snippet!

  5. Like Teresa, Vampire tales are never normally on my reading list, but it is interesting to read such a different genre to my own erotic romances. But good writing is good writing, whatever the genre, and you are definitely in that category. Great snippet.

  8. I ADORE paranormals. You don't see a lot of worlds where people don't just know about the paranormal anymore. I'm SO happy to see it. I love following a skeptic as they have their eyes opened to yummy darkness!

    I'm always STARVING for vampire stories. That will never change for me, and this sounds terrific! Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thanks, Amy! It's a different kind of cooperative effort then when working with a publishing house - a bit awkward and awesome at the same time. At least I'm working with veterans who can show me the ropes -and be patient!
