Fire Within Book Promo & Giveaway

Guest post by Ally Shields

Thanks so much for inviting me to your blog, Sara! I'm thrilled to reveal my brand new release, Fire Within, book two in the Guardian Witch urban fantasy series.

I love these characters and am sooo eager to share this second adventure!

Book Blurb:

A hidden evil stalks the city...

Fire witch cop Ari Calin refuses to believe her human friend Eddie murdered a vampire—in spite of his confession. When a second vampire dies, Andreas, the sexy, charismatic vampire she dated and split from eight months ago, joins her in the hunt for the real killer.

But Riverdale may have a special kind of serial killer who's looking for the next vampire victim. The roles of hunter and hunted become murky. And while unterHunAri might feel like killing Andreas at times, she doesn't want anyone else to do it...

Quick Peek Excerpt:

(The morning after the vampire murder, Ari is questioning patrons at the bar near the spot where the victim died, looking for other possible suspects.)

“I must be confused,” said the young man seated next to her. “Why are you asking about other enemies? I thought Eddie confessed.”

“It’s routine. We’re still looking for answers. For instance, the missing gun. If you remember or hear anything that could help us find it, please give me a call.” Ari handed out her business cards.

The young man pocketed the card with a frown. “Still don’t get it. You act like Eddie might be innocent. Why would he admit to the shooting, if he wasn’t guilty?”

Ari raised her eyebrows. “That’s the question, isn’t it?”
