Black Friday is here and we’re discussing the season with Laura Wright’s Synjon and Lucian from Eternal Sin.
Love and Vengeance…
The violent attack left Synjon destroyed and his lover dead—at the will of the evil vampire Cruen. Syn’s passionate savior was Petra. When she became pregnant with his child, it should have been a blessing—until Syn vanished after discovering the truth: Petra was the daughter of the man he despised above all others. The daughter of Cruen.
When Petra’s health begins to decline, she contacts Syn to help save their baby. Though reluctant to see Petra, he cannot turn his back on his own innocent child. But night after night, as his feelings for Petra are rekindled, Syn becomes increasingly torn.
Although everyone assumes that Cruen is dead, Syn is not convinced—and is still hell-bent on finding and destroying him once and for all. But will his thirst for vengeance keep him from seeing what is really worth living for before it is too late?
Make sure you stick around to the end. We’ll be giving away two $10 Amazon giftcards.
Shopping for Baby Vampires with Synjon and Lucian
Lucian sneered, bypassing people on their cellphones, people carrying insane amounts of shopping bags, people eating hot dogs and frozen yogurt and pizza. “If these humans don’t get out of my way, it’s going to be called Red Friday.”
Synjon couldn’t help but grin. He’d called the Roman brother about an hour ago, when the sun had dropped out of sight and the cover of darkness had spread across Manhattan. He’d thought that if he’d had to go shopping, he wasn’t doing it alone.
“Put the fangs away, Frosty,” Synjon said, bypassing a stream of shoppers coming out of a store called Brookstone. “If I don’t come home with this princess doll, Petra won’t speak to me.”
“A doll?” Lucian grumbled. “Are we are truly reduced to such shameful drudgery now that we have young?”
“What do you mean, WE?” Synjon asked, spying the shop Petra had instructed him to patronize. The Disney Store. “I thought you were just along for the ride.”
“It seems once Bron heard about this doll from Petra, she also wanted one for Lucy.” He growled as they entered the strange shop full of pint-sized party dresses, pirate costumes and loads of stuffed animals. “This is my hell.”
Synjon snorted. “Agreed.”
“We are truly held by the balls, it seems.”
Synjon laughed. “That I don’t mind, frosty. In fact, when my Petra invites me into the bathtub and I hover above her–”
“Christ, Brit Boy,” Lucian interrupted. He looked at him, sneered. “Have you not heard of the phrase TMI?”
Grinning, Synjon nodded. “I have, and I don’t give a shite.” He gestured to a sign. “There it is. Bloody hell, look at that crowd.”
“Why are we doing this again?”
“When my Petra’s happy, my dead heart beats. Truly, it feels like that at times.”
Lucian nodded. “When they smile and shit?”
“Exactly. So let’s get this thing and get out.”
The crowd seemed to part for the tall, imposing males, but Lucian and Syn weren’t even to the bin of dolls before they realized there was nothing inside it. The store was sold out.
Synjon felt his fangs descend and his eyes narrow. “Did that human male just take the last three dolls?”
Already on it, Lucian was at the male’s side in seconds. “Sir, do you have three balas…er, children?”
The man, dressed in jeans and a ‘Hammered at the Holidays’ T-shirt grunted his reply. “Hell, no. I sell these on Ebay for huge money.”
“How about selling two of them to us, mate?” Synjon said quickly. “We have two little females…er, girls, wanting them.”
“Fine,” the man said. “Two hundred bucks a piece.”
“Two hundred,” Synjon exclaimed. “Are you bloody insane?”
The man was unmoved by his shock. “Do you want them or don’t you?”
Syn turned to Lucian. “Do you have four hundred dollars on you?”
Lucian didn’t answer. His gaze was narrowed on the man. “It says the things are on sale for ten!”
“Too bad,” the man said, walking away, chuckling. “Have a great holiday. Hope those little females won’t be too disappointed.”
Synjon and Lucian watched the man head for the front of the store to pay. Watched as he slapped down a few twenty dollar bills, got his receipt then headed out of the store.
“That guy is very unreasonable,” Synjon said calmly.
“He’s an asshole,” Lucian added.
Synjon grinned. “I’m sure if we get him alone and explain our situation, he’ll be more understanding, don’t you think?”
“Oh, hell yeah,” Lucian agreed as they strode out of the store. “Our little females will have those goddamned dolls even if blood must be spilled.”
“My throat is dry.” Synjon sniffed the air, taking the man’s scent into his nostrils. “Then afterwards we can stop by Sees Candy for a little after dinner mint.”
“Sounds good, brother,” Lucian said, catching the man in his sights. “It’s sample day!”
