Synopsis

Regent Killian Larrestes survived a harrowing attack and the betrayal of his family by his mother, and has since worked to help them all recover, learning the complexities of protecting and commanding a large, sprawling Clan.

Shiloh Zahirris is seeking Sanctuary from a marriage he doesn’t want when he ends up under the protection of Killian Larrestes. Killian takes him in, and they find themselves falling in love. But will social objections, personal insecurities, and someone seeking revenge destroy their chance at happiness?

Excerpt

His mother, Janet Larrestes, stood up behind her desk, with a surprised look on her face, when he and his father came in. “Killian, what happened? Were you attacked?”

He nodded grimly. “Yes, Senki, I have been, but I fought back well enough to escape Anan.”
“Anan?” Janet’s expression was puzzled. She shook her head. “I don’t understand. Are you saying Anan attacked you?”

Killian nodded as his father put a comforting hand on his shoulder. “Yes, Senki, Anan attacked me. She attempted to rape me, Senki.”

“Surely there must be some mistake, Killian. Anan is your fiancée. This marriage has been arranged for a year now. I thought the two of you liked each other.” Janet sat down again, not even bothering to ask how bad his injuries were.

Killian nodded again. “I thought so, too, Senki. I mean, I liked her. She has always acted properly, even if I haven’t always liked the way she treats me. But this is different. This isn’t a misunderstanding of two people needing to learn how to deal with each other. She tried to rape me. I had to walk home from the park in the square because I wasn’t getting back into that car. Who knows what she would have done then? I had to slash her face with my dagger to get her off of me long enough to get away.” His knee really hurt, but his mother had not given him leave to sit. His father had taken the first aid kit out and had busily began to clean Killian’s face, and carefully removed Killian’s shirt to look at his shoulder.

“Janet, this wound on his shoulder needs stitching,” David Larrestes told his wife softly, as he gently checked the wound. Killian hissed and barely managed not to say every cuss word he knew.

“That can wait until we settle this.” She picked up the phone. “I’m calling Anan here. We’re going to sort this out.”

“Can I at least take the boy to get him cleaned up and dressed properly?” David asked, silently warning his son to be silent. Killian obeyed, giving his mother a respectful look. She was a good woman, but a bit of a martinet.

Janet held her hand up for silence. She spoke briefly on the phone, ordering Anan and her mother to come to the house to sort out this obvious misunderstanding. A cold chill went through Killian as he listened to those words. Surely, his mother believed him, didn’t she?

Janet hung the phone up and looked at her husband and son. “Anan is getting her face stitched up. Apparently, you’ve done some damage to your fiancée.” She spoke sourly.

“Good, maybe she’ll learn that no means no,” Killian said. “There’s no misunderstanding, Senki. On my honor, I promise you. She attempted to rape me. I ran as soon as I was able to get away, and the only way I could make her let me go was to use my dagger.”

She suffers from a love of extremely bad jokes and has a tendency to inflict them on innocent bystanders.

She notes that this does not keep her child and others from enjoying the products of that yarn addiction in the form of scarves and blankets.

Joe the caretaker just shuffled out a group of mountain climbers so they could get to the bottom before a large snow storm. Now he needs to clean the cabin and get it ready. He’s in the process when he finds someone left behind.

Tanner is not a mountain climber by any means, nor is he staying in the cabin to benefit his health. He has a meeting to commit treason and he’ll be damned if he misses his opportunity to make money to fund his drug addiction.

Pytor is a government agent meant to intercept the selling of plans. A storm won’t hinder him from making it to his extraction point.

Together the three form an unlikely bond and work together to ensure that everyone comes out alive in the end. If they happen to enjoy some sexy times and brew up some feelings….benefits of the job.

Darkness of Night: Episode One by C.S. Duffy Blog Tour Stop

Darkness of Night: Episode One by C.S. Duffy Blog Tour Stop

 

Exclusive Excerpt:

The fact that Stuart Henderson was one of the worst serial killers alive wasn’t what fascinated Lorna, though he was. He had been convicted of killing seventeen women, though he confessed to thirty-seven murders altogether, and according to Lorna’s Google search, the FBI suspected that the true number was even higher. He was a monster. Abhorrent. A vacuum of humanity.

 

Lorna was fascinated.

 

She remembered tagging along to a sleepover with her sister Greer when she was about eleven. She’d forgotten now why she had been foisted on the older girls, probably their parents had a night out to go to or something. But she did remember that they watched The Silence of the Lambs.

 

The girls all squished together on a giant blow up mattress in Greer’s friend’s spare room, stuffing their faces with sweets. Lorna mostly remembered that it was freezing; even though her feet were stuffed into a sleeping bag along with Greer’s, they were like blocks of ice. Within minutes, most of the older girls were freaking out, begging for it to be put off.

 

Lorna was dying to see the rest but afraid to speak up as she wasn’t even supposed to be at the party. Luckily, Greer’s best friend Suzie, who was nicer to Lorna than Greer was most of the time, noticed the expression on Lorna’s face and announced she wanted to watch the end too. ‘

 

You owe me, wee one,’ she grinned as the others went to the other side of the room to make up routines to Take That’s new album. She and Lorna snuggled under about seven sleeping bags to watch Hannibal Lecter escape from that mad giant bird cage thing that Lorna thought was brilliant. To this day, vintage Take That could conjure images of Anthony Hopkins wearing the security guard’s face.

 

After the sleepover, Lorna went to the library and checked out out the Hannibal Lecter books, persuading the doddery wee librarian (she was probably about thirty-five, but when you’re eleven everyone seems ancient) that they were for her mum.. She read them all, then moved on to books about real serial killers. When her friends were exchanging lurid fantasies about Brad Pitt and Robbie Williams, Lorna was staring out the window, daydreaming about catching the Zodiac Killer.

 

She never told anyone about it. Everyone already thought she was a weirdo. Why confirm it?

 

It wasn’t surprising then, that she had been glued to Stuart Henderson’s trial, sitting up all night for weeks on end watching the live feed from the court in the States. At the time she supposed she was fascinated mostly because she felt as though she could have known him. He was from just down the road from her – they could have sat next to each other on the number 88 bus coming home from town. He could even have friends in common with Greer.

 

However, when she heard his name mentioned the night after she came home to find her flat ransacked, she knew it was fate.
