I've just added Risking Eternity in its entirety. Afterward, I'll be adding free chapters of Chasing Eternity every Friday. Both Risking Eternity and Chasing Eternity will eventually be permafree on Kindle and other venues. Rite, which tells the back story of one of the characters in the Shadow World series, will also be free at some point.
RISKING ETERNITY (vampire novella, 33K words, 9 chapters, copyright Gwenan Haines, 2015)
After a childhood spent watching her psychic mother eke out a living reading tarot cards in their shabby New Orleans apartment, Hayden Farrell isn't taken in by much. As far as she's concerned, the only thing extraordinary about this world is people's willingness to put their faith in things that don't exist. But when teen-age prostitutes start turning up dead, the Boston homicide detective is forced to do something she hasn't done since she fled Louisiana. To catch the killer she's got to trust a stranger whose version of reality threatens to destroy her own.
Valentin Grigorievich has wanted revenge since London's most notorious serial killer betrayed him more than a century earlier. To get it, he needs Hayden's help--and maybe her life as well. While he may be immune to her good looks he finds it increasingly difficult to resist the dark connection that binds them. Will the vampire's plan give him the satisfaction he craves or rob him of his soul mate?
