Alexandra Ivy's Born in Blood tour + giveaway


Today we're taking part in Alexandra Ivy's tour for BORN IN BLOOD, her newest release, out today! BORN IN BLOOD is the start of a brand new series from Ivy and Kensington and it's a lot of fun. (My review will show up in the near future.)

For our stop, we're hosting Part 5 of a short story that Ivy has written for the blog tour. You can read the first four parts by visiting earlier stops, available here. There's also a tour-wide giveaway at the end, so be sure to stick around!

Without further ado, here is Part 5 of A SENTINEL LOVE STORY by Alexandra Ivy.


Part Five

He traced the shell of her ear.  Jayne swallowed her groan.

“If you’re worried why didn’t you go to the front entrance and ask to see him,” he demanded.

“Because I couldn’t be certain he could speak freely.”

The silver eyes abruptly narrowed.  “Ah.  Do you suspect torture or mind control?”

“Don’t mock me,” she muttered, telling herself to pull away.

Of course she didn’t.  The pleasure of his touch was like an addiction that she had no intention of resisting.

God.  How long had it been since she’d been attracted to a man?  It felt like years.  And never, ever had she’d ever encountered one that had captivated her with a single glance.

“Do you know what I think?”  His fingers skimmed down the length of her neck, a satisfied smile curving his lips as they found the pulse that thundered at the base of her throat.

Damn.  He knew exactly what he was doing to her.  The realization gave her the strength to knock away his hand, a scowl marring her brow.

“Do I have a choice?” she growled, frustration humming through her tense body.

“I think you had to sneak in because Charlie didn’t want to see you.”

She stiffened, still raw from the fear that he might actually be right.

“Charlie loves me.”

The starkly beautiful features abruptly softened, the silver gaze peering deep into her eyes.

“Of course he does, but he’s fifteen years old and he’s a boy.”

Her scowled deepened.  “What’s that supposed to mean?”

“He’s tired of being smothered by his older sister.”


And here's the scoop on BORN IN BLOOD:

Born in Blood by Alexandra Ivy (Sentinels #1)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.
