A Midsummer Night's Demon

Title: A Midsummer Night's Demon

Author: Brenda Sparks      

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Tour Host: Lady Amber's Tours


Daelyn Torres is determined to break free from her over-protective brother. Born a demon, she knows little of the world outside her home and work. A chance blind date promises adventure and perhaps a walk on the wild side. But her night on the town takes a deadly turn when she is gravely injured and left to die. A handsome, mysterious stranger comes to her rescue and brings with him a passion she has never experienced.

A dark guardian sent to investigate a series of missing person cases, vampire Ky Robinson is ready for anything, except the insatiable desire that engulfs him when he meets Daelyn. He senses their destiny is intertwined and vows to do everything in his power to keep her safe. The only problem: demons and vampires go together like fire and ice.

Daelyn never believed in things that went bump in the night but is more than willing to be seduced by the sexy vampire who marks both her body and soul. Will Ky be able to keep them both alive long enough to prove that vampires and demons can be so much more than friends?

He ghosted behind the couple. Following them on silent feet, staying deep in the shadows of the buildings. Ky noted the way the woman walked as they made their way along the sidewalk. Her legs appeared unsteady, most of her weight supported by the male’s arm around her waist, which seemed strange because she had not consumed all that much alcohol at the bar. Only two glasses of wine, by his count. The agent heard her speaking throughout the night and she had annunciated clearly. Yet now she seemed unsteady, and her words slurred as they left her lips.

She stumbled. Catching on a bit of raised sidewalk, her shoe flew off behind her in Ky’s direction. She turned and looked over her shoulder. When her eyes met his, Ky’s heart hitched in his chest, time froze.

The bronzed skin of her heart-shaped face appeared flawless. Long dark haired flowed around her shoulders with the turn of her head. Her chocolate eyes captured his, holding his gaze. The fall of her lashes broke the spell, creating dark crescents on her delicate cheekbones. Her petite nose led to full, pouty lips that sent a surge of desire through his body. His sure strides faltered under the weight of her beauty. She was a goddess.

And she was in grave danger.

When I wrote A Midsummer Night’s Demon, I knew I wanted the story to center around the Pagan festival of Litha. Litha falls during the summer solstice, as the midsummer heat creates a fiery passion that leaves people breathless. The more I learned about the festival, the more the holiday intrigued me. I knew nothing about pagan holidays, so everything about them, the traditions, the foods, the ritual stories were all a surprise when I was researching and I found it very fascinating. As I learned about Litha, the story began to form with the celebration as the culmination.

My upcoming project is a series about a group of seven vampires, called the Alpha Council, who are called upon to vanquish the worst evil from our world. Book one, Alpha Mine, releases later this year.
Christine Feehan influenced my series. It was while I read one of her books that the first scene came to me. As I drove to work, a violent scene played in my mind, where two vampires were locked in a heated battle. The winner’s reward? The love of his long life. My vampire series developed from that first scene into several stories. I'm currently writing book six and can't wait to introduce my Alphas to readers.
