Perfect for fans of J.R. Ward, Nalini Singh, and Lara Adrian, New York Times bestselling author Virna DePaul’s new series of paranormal romances introduces readers to a thrilling world where vampires secretly co-exist with humans, seduction rules the night, and the stakes are nothing less than life and undeath.
Virna DePaul has a way of infusing sex into every single page that I can’t turn fast enough.
4-1-14 is release day for Random House author Virna DePaul and Turned, the first book in the Belladonna Agency series. Turned is a fast paced, gritty, completely addicting, as in I-can’t-wait-to-read-book 2 (Awakened) and one of Virna’s best works.
Here’s a peek at Ty and Ana’s interaction after they’ve just met, wrestled, and Ana has disarmed the mind-reading, vampire, Ty, who is also incapable of telling a lie. Ana doesn’t know he’s a vampire nor does she know he can read her mind. Let’s read what Ty is willing to do to convince Ana to give back his gun…
“…You want me. And something tells me if I kiss you—just kiss you—you’ll tell me exactly where my gun is. What are the odds that I’m right?”
As fear drained from her body, it was replaced swiftly by anger. She felt her face flame and hated that her weakness was so transparent. Worse yet, she hated him for being witness to it. She renewed her struggles, but that didn’t stop him from lowering his lips to hers.
“Bite me,” he warned, “and I swear I’ll bite you back.”
She didn’t bite him.
She was too busy trying to stifle her every sound and every reaction to his kiss. The first touch of his cool mouth to hers seared her nerve endings, and although he kept the contact quick and gentle, she was shaking when he raised his head.
“Where’s the gun?”
She stared mutely back at him.
“You want me to kiss you again, sweetheart?”
She tried shaking her head. Wasn’t sure if she actually did. She said nothing, however, afraid if she did she’d give herself away.
Yes. Yes. Yes.
She wanted him to kiss her again. But damn if she’d tell him so.
Thankfully, he didn’t need to hear it. Lowering his head once more, he was neither quick nor gentle. This time, his touch didn’t feel cool.
This time, he opened his mouth and penetrated her with his tongue.
This time, heat swept from him into her so hot and so fast she practically ignited. She whimpered, and the sound shocked her out of her lust-induced trance. No, she thought, I won’t let this happen. I can’t.
Wrenching her mouth from his, she turned her face to the side, closed her eyes and surrendered. “Your gun’s in the cabinet under the toaster.”
