*Night Mistress dusts off boots* Well… We’ve had some excitement around here. Remember those noises I kept hearing out in the graveyard? *nods* Turns out the witches next door had raised a few dead–and a few dead shapeshifters as well. *plucks fur from minion’s coat*
Night Mistress: You might want to get that bite seen to, Juli. It looks nasty.
*Juli peers at torn coat* I’m sure it will be fine. *twitches*
Mistress: Are you certain?
Juli: *twitches and gags* Yes. *ahem* I’m fine now.
Mistress: You look a little…well?
Mistress: Furry. *sigh* Excuse me, folks. I think I have to brew up an antidote for her. in the meantime we have another guest for you tonight. Paranormal erotic romance author Ms. Eliza March has stopped by to talk about one of our favorite creatures: vampires and when not reading about them, writing them. Eliza, why don’t you tell us about your new book, Defeat the Darkness?
Eliza March: My friends and I have been sweating over my hot cauldron, conjuring up a great recipe for our favorite dark reads…
This one contains a gallon of sex and a dash of scary, evil demons (very bad), several hot vampires (*swoon*), a handful of shifters (hunky), one sex fae (really…need I say more?), and a wanton succubus (wicked) … If it goes bump in the night, you’ll probably find it in this erotic tale.
The Perfect Halloween Recipe for a weekend Read
author Eliza March
I’m used to being teased about being an avid vampire fan. I’m drawn to all things paranormal — Buffy, Vampire Diaries, Underworld, or True Blood. Some don’t get my fascination with the undead or the supernatural. (Being around great looking, powerful men who stay in perfect shape forever doesn’t hurt. Even if it is only in my imagination.) If you understand, then you’ll love this series.
I’ve done (oops…written) a few shifters, but Defeat the Darkness was my first attempt at writing vampires. I realized there were a few more stories I had to tell, so I started them all. I think Kyle and Shelby’s story is a good starting point. The reader gets to meet most of my ensemble cast of characters in this book, although new ones keep popping in to keep my interest going. Simone, the succubus, came out of nowhere. I thought she added one of the essential elements missing in this story — a female friend for Shelby. And I love Garr (Wolfgar) — he’s becoming one of my favorites.
Max, Shelby, and Kyle will play a part in future books, especially now that they’re acclimating to their new lives. Of course, if you bought this book, you know the next book is about Dylan’s past. Conquer the Highland Beast is going to be Hearts of Darkness Book 1.5
Dylan, Cailin, and Jackson’s story in this series is Damn the Darkness, Book 2.0, coming the end of December. So save your gift cards for this one.
We still have to meet Niccolai, and find out more about Jackson his hybrid son. Is the natural born element of their species destined to die off, or will Max and Victor find the solution to the vampire’s infertility problem? And…what about Amyra?

Defeat The Darkness: Demons of the Bayou
(Hearts of Darkness)
[Erotic paranormal romance, MFM, menage]
Possessed by evil, ruled by lust, driven by hunger. Can love defeat the ancient demon and turn the darkness into light?
Max Hamilton and Shelby Mackenzie go way back to being in diapers together. Over the years, they’ve shared playgrounds and fishing, first dates and first sexual experiences. It wasn’t a surprise when she followed Max to Tulane Medical School where they shared Kyle Lachlan—Max’s new friend and Shelby’s first real love.
Before Kyle, something had always been missing in the romance department for Shelby. But when Kyle announces he’s joined Physicians International Charity and is heading out to save innocent lives after the mudslides in Guatemala, Shelby is devastated. Until, he gives her a family heirloom engagement ring.
Kyle is determined to make up for his privileged Boston upbringing even if it means being separated from Shelby for a few months while she finishes her residency. But when he arrives in the makeshift medical camp, strange things begin to happen. Local legends inspired by the jungle jaguars tell of men who shift into the form of the large cats.
While out searching for a missing boy, Kyle is attacked by a rogue jaguar. His life changes, instantly and so does he. His former beliefs and ideals manifest into the myths and legends of a bad “B” horror flick.
Pursued by a demonic vampire, the exquisitely beautiful yet evil, Amyra de la Santiago plans to use him for her own selfish purpose. Kyle is determined to fight becoming the dark demon he senses within her.
She will stop at nothing to fulfill her ambitions, and Kyle is the answer she’s been waiting over three thousand years for. Leverage is what she needs to convince him, and who better to use against him than the people he cares about most?
Kyle will do anything to protect innocent lives like Max’s and keep the woman he loves safe even if it means sacrificing himself to the demon. What does it matter since his soul is already lost to the darkness?
Shelby must learn to believe in Kyle, again, then trust him and finally, she must be willing to fight for him. Later, there will be time to deal with the secret need she developed from the transition he caused. The hunger for sexual satisfaction drives her the way a vampire is driven by the need for blood. Max is always a willing partner, but as relationships change, so do their needs.
Will Kyle adjust and accept their new roles? After the danger is past, will Kyle be able to love a sex fae?
Shelby holds out hope since she is the light to his darkness. Only she can defeat the demon darkness taking over both Kyle and Max.
