Now Available – Other Side of Night: Bastian & Riley!
I’m incredibly excited to announce the official release of my newest collaborative work with S.L. Armstrong! Other Side of Night: Bastian & Riley is the first book in our Other Side of Night series, which takes a paranormal spin on our contemporary world. This manuscript went through a lot of editing, and we even delayed it to take on other works for the fall and early winter. It’s finally finished and available, and I think it’s one of our best books yet! We both love the world we’ve built for our vampires and ghouls, and our writing styles have really meshed perfectly for this book!
We also have some reviews for this one already! Let me share a bit from each of them. 😀
“Both of the heroes in this novella are well-developed… each appealing in their own way. These two young men are in college, so we have to forgive them for acting their age upon occasion. This is also what makes them believable…. Ms. Armstrong and Ms. Piet have a writing style that is very readable while still keeping a dark and shadowy edge. Their stories are unique and should especially please those who enjoy vampire and bdsm-themed fiction.” — 4 Stars from BookWenches
“There was much to like about this book, especially in the genuine problems faced by Bastian and Riley. They are both true to their age, as young men at college and so I found I couldn’t judge them too harshly for the mistakes they make…. The way that Bastian is introduced to the other vampires added a nice creepy tension to the story and… certainly kept my attention and added an extra dimension to the romance, widening the scope of what was happening to Bastian and Riley. Overall, I enjoyed this book, especially the character of Riley and the way that romance is blended with a touch of horror. I’m looking forward to further books in the series….” — 4 Stars from Jenre at Well Read
Vampires walk among us. For centuries, they have adapted, learning to pass undetected in our world. They no longer fear the day, only the sting of direct sunlight. They are students, bankers, lawyers, and even actors. But when the sun goes down, they are all united by their eternal thirst. We do not see them from our safe and comfortable side of the night. But sometimes, one of us is drawn away from the light and we cross into their world. Into the other side of night.
Sebastian Rossi’s second year at the University of Tennessee began much differently than his first. He rushes to and from his classes, covered head to toe in thick clothing. Parties are a thing of the past, and dating hasn’t been high on his list of priorities. No, high on his needs is blood. Lots of it. Adjusting to the changes no one even told him would happen following one great night of partying and sex has been hell for Bastian, but he’s managing.
Riley Lynch’s dream is to be a veterinarian. He works hard to pay his tuition, reads in every spare moment, and tries to forget the nightmare of his sophomore year. Summer has washed away all the bad, leaving him refreshed and eager for his junior year at UT. Life is finally looking up for him, and he has no intention of sliding back down into the depression that had consumed him during his last relationship.
A chance meeting brings their two worlds into alignment and passion sparks between them. When Riley learns of the changes Bastian is going through, he has a choice to make: walk away or embrace the night.
