"You might be attractive, but not everyone wants to have sex with you." As soon as I said it, I cringed. Did that sound as overly defensive as I felt?

"No, some people also want to kill me," he said at once. "Some want me to turn them into a vampire, some want my money, some want me for my rare artifacts, some for my fighting skills, and one wants to dangle me out as bait for a demon she's trying to kill. See? No one is with me simply to be with me."

In this thrilling new Night Rebel series set in New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress world, sexy and ruthless vampire Ian finally meets his match!
The Rule Breaker
Master vampire Ian is unrepentant, shameless…and every shade of wicked. He’s made one too many enemies in his two centuries of existence, including Dagon, a demon who now lays claim to his soul. Ian’s only chance to escape Dagon is to join forces with a Law Guardian, but he’s never been able to abide by the rules for long.
The Law Maker
Veritas’ normal role is police, judge and jury to reprobates like Ian. But she has her own ax to grind with Dagon, so if she can use Ian as bait…well, all’s fair in law and war. As they scour supernatural hotspots to perfect their trap, Veritas soon realizes Ian’s devil-may-care, roguish image hides something much more powerful. And Ian discovers that Veritas has shocking secrets of her own. As they’re drawn to each other with a passion as intense as their peril, eit…

Still, his arms felt strong and secure and his body was warm and solid and he smelled really, really good.

"Stop that," Ian said, lightly tugging my hair. Only then did I realize I'd ripped his collar open to nuzzle his neck.

Instead of being embarrassed, I found myself giggling. "Sorry. Want to eat you," I said with complete sincerity.

"Of course you do. Everybody does."

If we didn't hold on to the spirit of the city, it would be like all of those people lost in the Storm had died in vain...if we didn't shake the caskets and dance to the beats on the mispronounced French streets.

Mother Nature has taken our homes, our schools, our electricity, and even our people, but there's no way New Orleans would let her take our traditions.

Lulu gave him a two-fingered whistle. “The ensemble is fantastic.”

He flipped her off.

“I mean, he is just delectable,” Lulu said quietly.

“He’s not bad,” was all I was willing to give him. I was still too disturbed by the fact that I found him attractive.

“You could bounce a quarter off his ass.”

“I can hear you, Lulu,” he called back, pulling on jeans and a T-shirt. He glanced back, and there was no hiding the masculine pride in his eyes. “Wolf hearing, remember?”

Another bad sign — someone or something had turned vodka into water. This was not my preferred kind of miracle.

People cause pain. Even good people hurt those they love. We all do it because we can't help it. Most of us aren't evil; we're just stupid and flawed and not careful with others.

Sometimes, you do things and you do them not because you're thinking but because you're feeling. Because you're feeling too much. And you can't always control the things you do when you're feeling too much.

Did men ever look in the mirror, I wondered, and find themselves wanting in deeply fundamental ways? When they opened a newspaper or watched a film, were they presented with nothing but exceptionally handsome young men, and did this make them feel intimidated, inferior, because they were not as young, not as handsome? Did they then read newspaper articles ridiculing those same handsome men if they gained weight or wore something unflattering?

In case it's unclear, I'm not a believer. 

Where I grew up, everyone believed in God. Everyone worshipped Jesus. And they were all poor and miserable and suffering. They lost jobs and children and dignity, but that only made them pray harder. I recognize a con when I see one.
