I’m a young author from Chicago, I’m hoping to bring some new heat
and sizzle to the romance genre.

My favorite genres are paranormal and dark romance. I love reading a
good book but I’m so busy in life that I only get to enjoy audio
books. Its the only way I can get lost in a good book nowadays. And
you know what? I half prefer an audio book over print any day! I
have a long standing membership at Audible.com and I plan to
publish audio books for busy bookworms like myself! Yay!
My love of writing started when a friend of mine encouraged me to write
a short story and just see what happens. Turns out I had a knack for
writing because everyone loved my short stories. From then on I have
worked on improving my craft. Growing from flash fictions
to novellas. I am really looking forward to sharing all the twisty
goodness I have planned!
Thank you & Much love and Sizzle!

aligning to battle a common enemy ‘Thrones of Blood’ #series #Adult #DarkFantasy @nancykwriter @SDSXXTours

Revenge of the Vampir King
Thrones of Blood Book 1
by Nancy Kilpatrick
Genre: Adult Dark Fantasy, Paranormal Romance
Vampires and humans are at war!
Moarte, King of the Vampirii, is a prisoner of his Sapiens enemy. The
beautiful Sapiens Princess Valada, believing that Moarte killed her
mother, tortures him, even to the point of breaking the bones in his
wings so he cannot escape. She intends to incinerate him to ash in
sunlight, but Moarte escapes.
Moarte hungers for revenge. When, through an act of betrayal, Valada is
captured by the vampirii, his first instinct is to drain her blood
and annihilate her. But he realizes he can get revenge in other ways,
using her as a tool to gain the upper hand in this conflict. But who
is manipulating whom? Both want revenge, and control of the other,
and Moarte wants to drink Valada’s blood. Dark desires lead down a
path neither had envisioned, a threatening spiral that can destroy
empires.
Hunter and hunted change places again and again in this novel of twisted,
violent passions. Seeds of deception are sown amidst love and hate,
loyalty and betrayal, obsession and indifference, in an erotic tale
of warring races, foes since the beginning of time, and two unlikely
adversaries aligning to battle a common enemy.
Nancy Kilpatrick infuses her vampires with the hot blood of life and erotic
passion. Vampires have never had it so good.”
F. Paul Wilson
Author of the Repairman Jack series, The Keep, Midnight Mass
“Kilpatrick knows that great secret of horror stories: that they are intensely personal!”
-Chelsea Quinn Yarbro Author of The Saint Germain series
“Nancy Kilpatrick’s writing is both eloquent and erotic her stories seduce
the reader through the mutual attraction of dread and desire.”
Stephen Jones
Editor: Dark Terrors; Best New Horror series
Sacrifice of the Hybrid Princess
Thrones of Blood Book 2
Part human, part vampir, the beautiful, stubborn, angry young Princess
Serene is a tormented hybrid, her days and nights controlled by her
overprotective parents. When they suddenly insist on an arranged
marriage, visions of a grim future in a loveless pairing with the
cold and dominating Wolfsbane drive Princess Serene into a desperate escape.
But instead of freedom, the young naive Princess rushes headlong into the
clutches of a human demon whose cruelty and violence threaten to
destroy her and her world. The entire vampirii nation is helpless to
rescue her, and war becomes a certainty. Rebellion will lead to many
deaths, including those she loves. But to endure brutality until she
can escape might be beyond her abilities.
Ultimately, Wolfsbane, her detested bridegroom, is the one holding the key to
save her, if he can. And more, can she
be saved?
***
“Nancy Kilpatrick inhabits that shadow land of sensuality between terror and
pleasure; she can be creepy, seductive, bleak, exquisite and
terrifying—often all at once. She knows the intricacies of human
minds and bodies at war with themselves, and her stories bring you
into those battles in ways that make you think you’ve actually been
there because maybe you have.”
Thomas Roche, author of The Panama Laugh and editor of the Noirotica series
“Nancy Kilpatrick’s vampires have a distinctive bite all their own.”
Nancy A. Collins, author of Sunglasses After Dark and In the Blood
“Kilpatrick is the pony express of horror. She’s fast and furious and she always delivers.”
Brian Lumley, author of the Necroscope series
I loved Book 1 but I will admit that I loved Book 2 even more. The
characters were comfortably familiar but the threat level has been
escalated to nail-biting proportions. I devoured the book quickly; it
was difficult to put down, but I am used to this when in the hands of
a skilled author like Kilpatrick. She truly is a “vampire queen”:
a real specialist at telling vampire tales in new and engaging ways.”
Elaine Pascal, reviewer
The Horror Review
Abduction of Two Rulers
Thrones of Blood Book 3
A conference between two species ends in disaster when Sapiens Queen
Blanka and the Vampir King Thanatos are treacherously seized and
imprisoned in a dungeon. War erupts as their jailers—an ancient
vampir and a traitorous Sapiens usurper—each plot to reign over all
of their own species. Desperate to end the conflict, the two
prisoners escape. En route to his stronghold, Thanatos disappears.
His vampir allies want to find him, but attack is imminent, making
defense the priority. Blanka knows the odds are against her surviving
an all-powerful, ancient being whose goal is destruction yet she is
determined to rescue Thanatos. The question that tortures her is:
does he still exist?
***
“Nancy Kilpatrick is an audacious and insane writer of vampire fiction. I
wish a vamp would bite me so I could read her work forever!” –
Nancy Holder, NYT Bestselling Author, Mary Shelley Presents; Buffy
the Vampire Slayer novels
“Sit back and let Nancy Kilpatrick guide you through this tortured world
of sex and passion, hunger and blood, damned souls and velvet
nights.” – Karen E. Taylor, author The Vampire Legacy series
“Horror has never been so poetically exquisite before: move over Anne Rice
for Nancy Kilpatrick.” – Robert W. Walker, author of Instinct series books
Savagery of the Rebel King
Thrones of Blood Book 4
Necros, the most rebellious of the vampir kings, has carried a burning hatred
for the one who forced him into this undead existence centuries ago.
Abused, betrayed, cheated, he trusts none of any species, especially
Guin, a dethroned mortal queen who appears out of nowhere and feeds
his paranoia, and his darkest fantasies. At best she attempts to
control him, at worst she tries to kill him. For some reason he does
not understand, Necros is compelled to let her live. But he believes
she is manipulative, and a liar; Guin sees him as brutal, stubborn,
impossible! Encounters turn ugly as violence, bitterness and haunting
memories drive both of them. Guin has her own agendas, and the more
she struggles to actualize them, the further away her goals recede. A
few vampirii endeavor to build a bridge between the two combatants,
but others with sinister plans are bent on hindering a truce. This
downward-spiralling dynamic reels towards a dire conclusion that
neither Necros nor Guin seem able to halt.
Savagery of the Rebel King—Vol 4 in the exciting Thrones of Blood series—is
a fast-paced rollercoaster ride in a plot that twists and turns and
threatens to spin out of control. Readers will be glued to their seats!

brings safety to her dark world ‘The Becoming’ #Paranormal #Romance #Erotica @liliththorn @GoddessFish

Hey folks! Today I’m happy to introduce you to Lilith Thorn and her story The Becoming!

~ * ~ BIO ~ * ~

Born in Dundas, ON, Lilith Thorn is a restless wanderer. Her first move was to St. Catharines where she earned a Theatre degree at Brock University. Despite her parents’ wish that she would return home and work at McDonalds after graduating, Lilith refused and instead moved to Toronto to give acting the ‘Old College Try.’ After years of sacrificing her other passions for the stage and an empty bank account, she put away those dreams to say “Yes” to a different adventure. This took her to Dublin, Ireland for a few years where she met, fell in love with, and married another Canadian who took her to the one place she said she’d never live: Yellowknife. After nearly a decade in Canada’s Great White North, Lilith looks forward to further adventures with her husband and two children, just about anywhere.

Lilith Thorn is a pen name, the pseudonym used to protect the innocent; that is, so she hopefully never has to explain to her mother-in-law over dinner that she has written an erotic novel.

~ * ~ ABOUT THE AUTHOR and BOOK ~ * ~

What is the sweetest thing someone has done for you?
This Christmas, my husband waited until I fell asleep and then snuck back upstairs to replace my old stocking with a new one. It was handmade by his Aunt to match the ones our children have and his own from when he was a child. It added such a beautiful bit of Christmas magic to our morning.

How would you spend ten thousand bucks?
Travel. But where to? I’d love to go back to Dublin and show the kids where their father and I met. I’d also like to go back to Italy or France. Greece, maybe? Somewhere warm. Will $10,000 get you a trip around the world?

Where do you get your best ideas?
My best writing ideas come from play. I spend time playing with characters and scenarios in my head before I build anything permanent. I’ll imagine them in various scenarios before I land on the ones I like the best or have the strongest merit before I move them on to paper.

What comes first, the plot or characters?
Characters always come first. I love trying to understand people’s motives, so the people come first and then I figure out what they would do in the situations I dream up for them.

What does your main character do that makes him/her special?
Niamh perseveres. She lives in a time where escape is purely fantasy. The life she’s dealt is the one that she must live in, until death parts husband and wife. Despite the humiliation she suffers, the neglect, the torture she survives.

~ * ~ BLURB ~ * ~

Niamh is a good wife. She learned early on that crossing her husband had consequences. Living quietly in the shadowed cage he has formed around her, Niamh suffers his secrets and bares the scars they leave behind.

On the night of her biggest humiliation Caleb enters the ballroom changing Niamh’s course forever. He brings safety to her dark world and introduces her to the possibility of escape. Will Niamh’s love for Caleb be the key to her freedom or will it be her undoing?

Chapter Five

He closed the doors behind him and, without saying a word, beckoned me toward him. I knew what was to come next. This was a test. He had his fill while away, last night included. He had no pent-up desires, as was often the case when he was home for too long, when he couldn’t risk his local reputation doing what he liked best on any flesh but my own.

He eyed me suspiciously. “I have a gift for you.” He hinted toward his inner coat pocket with a tap of his finger. “Do you deserve what I brought for you?”

He was taunting me, treating me like the shallow puppet he thought I was. He believed I longed for him to come home with pockets filled with trinkets. If he only knew that what I longed for was for him to stay away.

“I have done nothing to deserve your mistrust.” I mustered up.

Motioning with his finger, he directed me to turn around and I obliged. Even with my back to him, I felt him approach. I swallowed the dread. After years of his advances, I should have built up a defense, but my arsenal only contained an off switch. Once the fear had been pushed down, I could become his doll. A barely-breathing version of myself, unwilling but able to do as she was told, if only to save herself the repercussions disobedience would entail.

I watched as though from above as he used his body, now pressed against mine, to guide and bend me over the writing desk. He put a hand on my head and forced it to the side, pinning me. With the other found a ‘sweet spot’ at the base of my neck, above my shoulder bone, and pierced it with his tool. Briefly losing my distance from this moment, I cried out in surprise. I had forgotten the sharpness of this exchange. His lips fenced in the flow of blood and as he tasted me. Every now and again, he would attempt to torment me with a whisk of his tongue. Pressing into my back was the gift hidden in his pocket. I recognized the shape of it immediately. A bottle of perfume. What else would he bring me from Paris, from anywhere? It was what he always brought me.
