Today I’m featuring a new release from fellow author and online friend Jana Denardo! Make certain to read to the bottom for an exclusive post from Jana, one that particularly interested me since I deal with magic in both my own writing and private life.
Title: Blod Red Roulette
Publisher: DSP Publications
Novel: 123,179 words
Cover Artist: Tiferet Design
Genres: paranormal, romance, MM – it’s more paranormal but there’s a strong romantic subplot with Arrigo Giancarlo & Luc St. John
CW: Luc’s family is homophobic and violent. There is violence in the book from the villain, Eleni as well
Arrigo Giancarlo’s friends think he’s a rich young man with the unusual job of paranormal investigator, working with his psychic assistant in Las Vegas. In truth he’s a two-thousand-year-old vampire and member of the Chiaroscuro, a group of Supernaturals dedicated to keeping humanity safe from the more dangerous of their kind. He’s also openly bisexual… but alone.
When he spots Luc St. John in a bar, Arrigo is intrigued. What begins as an effort to repay the kindness shown to him in the past quickly turns into much deeper feelings for the suffering and displaced Cajun. For Luc’s part, he feels too poor, too uneducated, and too bound to his hateful family to ever be worthy of elegant and cultured Arrigo.
An old enemy, Eleni, blames Arrigo for murdering her true love. On the anniversary of that death, she’s back to take revenge. As Arrigo’s closest friends fall victim to savage attacks, he fears nothing will keep Luc safe. Should he break both their hearts and let Luc go, or is it too late? If Luc’s already in Eleni’s sights, Arrigo knows that like most things in Vegas, the odds are against him.
