About Primary Season:

Who says politics isn’t sexy?

PATRICK BLANCO wants nothing more than a chance at the presidency, and he’s willing to do anything to get it. At just thirty-eight-years-old, Patrick is already one of the youngest and most successful senators in the country, but he’s destined for more. Much more. When the cold winds of the New Hampshire primary blow in his favor, his campaign kicks into overdrive.

So does his love life.

ALEXANDRA JONES knows that working on Patrick’s election could be the job she needs to prove herself in Washington, DC. Win with him, and her life will change forever. She just didn’t count on something—her growing attraction to her boss. Pretty soon, she can’t deny it.

Neither can he.

As Patrick and his team head to South Carolina, life gets complicated. This is politics, after all. Secrets don’t say secret for long. Everything has a price. Everyone has a motive. There’s no time for love.

Or is there?

EXCERPT

That night around eleven fifteen, as I poured myself a drink from the minibar, I heard a knock on my hotel room door. When I opened it, I found Alex on the other side. She stepped backward in the hallway and sucked in a deep breath.

 

“Sorry to bother you and Kathryn,” she said as her cheeks grew pink. “But we need to chat.”

 

“That’s fine. You’re not bothering us. Besides, she’s already asleep in the other room,” I said, and glanced over my shoulder down the length of the suite. Kathryn’s door remained closed. Good. I turned back to Alex. “And I never go to bed this early.”

 

“Well, I was thinking about something on the agenda for tomorrow, and I didn’t think it should wait until the morning.”

“No problem,” I said, taking in the sight of her. “In fact, you’re just in time for a nightcap.” I held up the mini bottle of Maker’s Mark. “What do you say to a drink while we talk it over?”

 

She hesitated, then shrugged. “All right.”

 

“You like bourbon, don’t you?”

 

“Sure do,” she said as she glided into the room, still wearing the black skirt and white oxford shirt from earlier. I shut the door behind us and focused on her round, tight ass as she walked to the couch on the far end of my suite.

 

Damn.

 

“How you do like it?” she said as she sat down. “Straight up or on the rocks?”

 

“Straight up.” I grinned, took another bottle from the minibar, handed it to her and took a seat in the burgundy armchair across from the sofa. “Bottoms up.” I raised the bottle and she tipped her back to me. She downed the alcohol in a smooth shot, and I followed her lead.

 

“Whew,” she said. “Not bad.”

 

“You seem like you have some experience with this kind of thing.”

 

She sank further into the couch. “You don’t get out of Tulane without learning how to drink.”

 

“Of course, I remember now. You told me about Tulane that night at Old Ebbit.” I paused. “I’m trying to think what I know about that school. Hmm. The students named the mascot Pecker, didn’t they?”

 

“Guilty as charged. Of course, they wouldn’t let us keep that name.” She sighed. “But Riptide the Pelican just doesn’t have the same…ring.”

REVIEW – SHADOW RITES BY FAITH HUNTER

SHADOW RIGHTS COVER
Jane Yellowrock has her hands full in the latest novel in the New York Times bestselling series that captures “the essence of urban fantasy” (SF Site).

Slaying vampires is child’s play for skinwalker Jane Yellowrock. But handling the complicated politics of New Orleans’ supernatural players is another story…

Jane is keeping the peace between visiting groups of witches and vamps in the city, but then trouble comes knocking on her doorstep. When her house is magically attacked, the wild chase to find her assailants unearths a mystery that has literally been buried deep.

A missing master vampire, presumed long deceased, is found chained in a pit…undead, raving mad, and in the company of two human bodies. Now it’s up to Jane to find out who kept the vampire hidden for so long and why, because the incident could tip already high supernatural tensions to an all-out arcane war.

Book Description Courtesy of Amazon

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest Review.

SHADOW RITES is a magical, explosive, action packed ride. In each book Jane grows as a character and in power. Jane and Eli are busy getting ready for the European Mithran to come to town. Now they have another threat in New Orleans. Somebody is using magic against Jane and the rest of the Vampires. During the search for this witch, they find the vampire, Ming Zoya of Mearkanis, who they thought was dead. During this search, Jane is knocked unconscious twice by magical items. Jane might have to give her life to catch this witch. In this story we get the same Beast snark as all the rest. We also get more of the Truebloods and Angie baby. It’s do or die time for Jane. She must find out who is doing this, before she dies trying. I love Jane and Beast. You are always in for a wild, entertaining ride, when you read a Faith Hunter book. I really enjoyed SHADOW RITES and I give it 5/5 stars.
