Vampires… a Bad Ass Girl….
By the time you read this, the world will have shifted on its axis just slightly. There will be less color in the northern skies, and my smile will be just a tinge marred by sadness.
The Aurora Sky series by Nikki Jefford is celebrating the release of the sixth and final book today – True North. Why does this make me sad? Well, this series has all.the.things. It’s full of paranormal drama, romantic interludes, and (as you know I love them) a strong female lead.
Let me just keep saying that. If you like hotness without being too dirty, you will like this series (just check out the clip below and you will know what I mean.)
I know I should be thrilled the series is over because it’s so frustrating to wait for each new book, but frankly, Ms. Jefford has grown so dramatically from Book 1 that I cannot help be enthusiastic for it to go on forever. I also met her personally recently at UTOPIAcon, after posting with her in Club YA on fb for a while now. Knowing her sweet and charming quirk in person gives her books such a softer nuance. I think anytime you spend more than 3 minutes with an author, it changes their books for you.
Hers definitely became richer with her tone and personality =)
I know she has new stories, new people, new loves to explore… so let’s say goodbye to Aurora Sky the right way…
First, read an excerpt of True North by Nikki Jefford… Then enter to win the entire beginning of the series and fall in love with it too!!
Also Fane. (heh)
“I’m like blood. The more you have, the more you want.”
Although Fane didn’t turn to me, I caught the Cheshire smile on his lips. Hadn’t seen that one in a while. It made me want to take off my seatbelt and climb into his lap. Seat warmers be damned. We could raise the heat level inside this tin can on our own if we launched ourselves into one of our toe-curling make-out marathons. Without anyone to interrupt us at home, we’d turned kissing and sex into our own personal Olympic sport.
I’d come a long way with car rehabilitation if I was considering launching myself into Fane’s lap inside a moving vehicle. The man had that effect on me.
“Keep talking like that and I might make you turn this car around,” I said in a husky voice. Flirty Aurora wasn’t usually awake at this hour, but there was always room for exceptions.
The car slowed. I leaned forward and squinted at the surrounding trees beyond Fane’s headlights. I figured he must be slowing for a moose along the side of the road, but couldn’t make out any four-legged silhouettes.
I looked from the road to Fane.
“What are you doing?”
“Turning the car around. Or were you bluffing?”
The Cheshire grin returned full force. His teeth practically glowed in the dark.
After getting over my initial surprise, I smiled slowly. My eyebrows jumped. We’d see who was bluffing.
“You got somewhere more important to be?” I challenged.
Fane’s grin widened. “Your satisfaction always comes first,” he said in a silky voice.
