By Alexandra Ivy
Part Four
She hunched a shoulder, deeply regretting her brown hair that was pulled in a ponytail and the predictable dark eyes that came with her Italian heritage.   She wasn’t ugly.  She was...plain.  Ordinary.  Just once she wished she could be the sort of woman that made a man like Anton look at her as if she were more than an unwelcome intruder.

“Only a place that has something to hide goes to such insane efforts to keep people out,” she accused, trying to remind herself why she was there.
This was all about Charlie.
Wasn’t it?
“We have nothing to hide, but a great deal to protect,” he countered, his gaze skimming down to land on her mouth, lingering there as if he was considering what it would feel like to kiss her.  She shivered.  Yes, please.  His fingers moved to stroke over her heated cheek.  “It’s amazing how many norms assume we’re savage mutants who are a threat to the world.”

Her mouth went dry.  She’d been desperately aware of Anton since he’d arrived on her doorstep.  Now she struggled not to make an idiot of herself.

No throwing yourself at the sumptuous, edible male...

“I don’t think you’re a threat to the world,” she muttered.

His thumb traced her bottom lip.  “But you don’t trust us.”

“You have my brother.”

“We don’t have him,” he protested, his voice oddly absent.  As if his thoughts were distracted.  “Charlie came here of his own free will, as you well know.”

He wasn’t the only one distracted.  Jayne struggled to breathe as he explored her face with the tips of his fingers. 

What was he doing?  Was it a high-blood thing? 

She tried to pretend the light caress wasn’t sending tingles of arousal pulsing through her body.

“It’s true he agreed to come to Valhalla.”  Jayne was forced to halt and clear her throat.  “But that doesn’t mean he’s happy here.”
The Sentinels, Book #1

Publisher:  Zebra

Publication Date:  December 31, 2013


In a stunning new series, Alexandra Ivy lures readers into the dark, seductive world of the Sentinels—humans outcast by their hidden abilities, treading the line between life and death, good and evil, pleasure and pain. . .

In The Heart Of Darkness 
Sergeant Duncan O'Conner has seen it all before. Beautiful erotic dancer, murdered at home, no suspect, no motive. But there's one clue: she's missing her heart. It's enough to make the hard-bitten Kansas City cop enlist the help of a necro--one of the dead-channelling freaks who live in the domed city of nearby Valhalla. It's a long shot, but desperate crimes call for desparate measures.

Lies The Kiss Of Death

Unlike the other "high-bloods" in Valhalla, Callie Brown considers her abilities a gift, not a curse. But when she reads the dancer's final thoughts, she senses a powerful presence blocking her vision. This is no ordinary homicide. This is the work of a legendary necromancer who controls souls. A ravenous force that will put Callie's skills to the test, O'Conner's career at risk, and both their hearts on the line. . .literally. 

AVAILABLE 12/31/14
