A to Z Challenge: Embrace

This little snippet is one of the first "moments" between Aleria and Ryan. It always gives me a little squee feeling.

About the Book

First, do no harm.” Blake Ryan swore that oath to become a doctor. Ironic, given that he spent most of his thousand year life sucking souls out of other immortals.

Things are different now. Using regular shots of morphine to keep his inner monster at bay, Ryan has led a quiet life since the Second World War. His thrills now come from saving lives, not taking them.

Until a plane crash brings Aleria into his hospital. Her life is vibrant. Crack to predators like him. She’s the exact sort of person they would hunt, and thanks to a severe case of amnesia, she’s all but defenseless.

Leaving Aleria vulnerable isn’t an option, but protecting her means unleashing his own inner monster. Which is a problem, because his inner monster wants her dead most of all.

Coming out on 30 April

  4. "Neither version of me could succeed." Love that line.

  5. It took me a while to figure out that I needed to click the cover to read the snippet, but what a tantalizing snippet that brought that blurb to life. Thank you also for giving me inspiration for "E" since I was absolutely up against the wall in trying to figure out what to write for the AtoZ Challenge today. Yes! Forward! I'm over at if you want to see my snippet later today.

  6. I'm enjoying these snippets!

  7. Oh, you tease! Congrats Misha. Love the cover.

  8. He's between a rock and a hard place all right.

  9. Loving these daily visits :)

  10. Well, Blake is conflicted. No doubt about that.

  11. Very nice! One of those two sides will have to win out, eventually, and we're left to wonder which one it will be. Wonder... and hope :)
