Daniel – Reared by the master swordsmith who taught me his craft, I’ve dedicated my life to forging steel. I never thought about the occult, until a foreign man with unimaginable power stops at my home and forge. He takes me to Japan where I study under an ancient swordsmith. Nothing and no one, especially a woman, can tear me away from my craft, or so I think. While visiting New York City in 1927, I meet Shauna, and everything changes.
Shauna – Working the streets with only my abusive pimp Jack to look out for me is no way to live, but I don’t have much choice. When a rich weirdo takes me to a ritzy hotel and offers me a way out, I’m not sure what to do. Then he shows up at Jack’s juice joint with tall, gorgeous Daniel whose mixed messages make my head spin. Can a vampire swordsmith fall in love with a former pro skirt, or is all his heat only in the forge?
Note: Shauna’s Silver Swordsmith is a short vampire romance with a stubborn hero, a resilient heroine, historical settings, some spice, violence, and a HEA.
Usually I’m totally focused, but all I can think about is the beautiful woman temporarily living in my house.
“I’ll get you for this, Lucas,” I breathe, pausing for a moment in my work. The smell of hot steel and the heat of the forge should be comforting, but all I feel is restlessness.
I want to go back to Shauna, but I’m hiding here under the pretense of work.
Cursing under my breath, I yank the sweat-damp scarf off my head and trudge toward the house. Her delicious scent teases my nose. I follow it to my garden where Shauna sits by the koi pond. She’s changed clothes. The sleeveless black shirt tucked into wide-legged black trousers shows off the curves of her breasts and hips. Her thick eyelashes are lowered and I stare, transfixed by her lovely profile. I long to take her in my arms and kiss her. I want to taste her sweet blood. The passion flaring through me is frightening in its intensity, but I control it.
Then she lifts her gaze to mine.
