Late Entry to Excerpt Thursday - Meet the Heroine

The following is Kern's first face-to-face meeting with Marie in the newly released novel, Midnight Savior. Marie attempts to rescue him from captivity, but Kern's mind dances on the brink of insanity. He struggles to descern the truth as to why she is there. Is she friend, or foe?


Kern had stayed perfectly still, watching the woman’s feet through mostly closed eyes. He pretended he was out cold as he waited for her to come closer. The presence of one who had hurt him had him raging inside, but he bit down on the anger, waiting for an opportunity to strike. His mind reveled in the fact he was finally going to have the chance to exact revenge. Someone was about to pay dearly for what had been done to him. But first, he was slowly starving to death.

As soon as she was in front of him, Kern grabbed her throat, stared into her wide, terror-filled eyes for a moment, then turned her head and sank his fangs in deep, intentionally causing as much pain as possible. She screamed, but the sound fell on deaf ears as she bucked and kicked. Her blood flooded his mouth, and he moaned. He had been without food or drink, and now warm, sweet blood was flowing into him, giving much needed nourishment to every cell in his body.

When her blood had first hit his tongue, he almost swooned. The taste was overwhelming, like a drug, the exquisiteness making him hard. Flashes of white light danced behind his eyelids.

Kern drank greedily until he heard her soft whisper.
