*Contest Closed*I received an email from Ms. St. Giles asking if I'd be interested in reading and reviewing her next book in her Shadowmen series that is scheduled for release on the 31st. I had read the first two as they came out, so of course I said yes.
I should have done this sooner, but better late than never, eh? I have an ARC of Kiss of Darkness to giveaway to one lucky commenter! So leave a comment and I'll pick a name Friday. afternoon :). I I I

Blurb~A vampire bite has Sheriff Sam Sheridan on the fast track to hell and demons are taking over Twilight Tennessee. He's battling not only to save both his soul and his town, but also his love for one woman, Emerald Linton. Emerald has a secret that could destroy both her and Sam. She is an angel, and if she can't save Sam from turning evil, then she'll have to kill him, no matter how much of her heart belongs to him. Sam is determined to take as many demons and vampires down with him as he can and to protect Emerald, but as the seductive dark power in him grows will he condemn Emerald to share his doomed fate, or will they both find a way out of hell. ind a way out of hell.
I would recommend reading the first two books in this series before reading Kiss of Darkness, Touch a Dark Wolf and The Lure of the Wolf. With the continuing plot line I think the books should be read in order, or you may feel lost with who's who and what's what. There is a lot going on.
Enter a world with demons and vampires, angels and otherworldy warriors. The plot is quite thick and begins in the first book and builds from there throughout each book, adding and complicating things further. The bad guys wreak havoc in a quaint town set in the Tennessee Mountains called Twilight as their plan to unleash horrible evil into the world thickens. But a small group of people have come together over the course of the books to fight back and save the world.
At the end of the second book Sam, the hero in Kiss of Darkness, was bitten by a vampire. Now he struggles with the horrifying transformation. As the battle continues to keep the demons and vampires at bay, Sam and Emerald fight together the darkness that threatens their future. Emerald's secret past haunts her as does the tragic events of Sam's haunt him, complicating their already complicated relationship.
I enjoyed revisiting previous characters and finally seeing Emerald and Sam front and center. These books are very much centered around the plot with lots of action. There are some light moments that I really liked. For instance, the Truffle scene. Even in the midst of the end of the world as we know it, it was an uplifting scene to see the characters have a teasing moment.
I enjoyed this third book in the Shadowmen series. Another fine addition to a very detailed plot and vivid, well-crafted characters to go with it!
So leave a comment and I'll draw a name for an ARC of the book! And it's one of those arc's that doesn't have the cover. Well, it has a cover. It's that light blue cover, very neat! I have an Eve Silver ARC like this one. It's pretty cool, if you ask me :).
Comment by Friday morning! I'll announce a winner by Friday afternoon!
Thank you, Jennifer St. Giles, for the the books! So awesome of you, and so wonderfully appreciated.
