USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Blackstream reveals the next pulse-pounding installment in the Blood Trails series.


Political intrigue is for wizards.


Shade has never agreed with her old mentor’s advice more than she does now. But if unraveling a political conspiracy is her only chance to escape the past month of magical boot camp and goblin-sparring, interspersed with seductive attempts by her sidhe master to make their relationship permanent, then so be it.


A government spook saw something he shouldn’t have—a glimpse of the Otherworld. Now his life is in danger, and it’s up to Shade to save him. Unfortunately, there are a lot of monsters behind the scenes pulling political strings. Demons, sidhe, sorceresses, even the vampiric crime lord of Cleveland himself. Any one of them could have frightened the political fixer into madness.


And they’ll do much worse to Shade if she threatens to uncover their secrets…

About the author

USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Blackstream is...odd. Putting aside the fact that she writes her own author bio in third person, she also sleeps with a stuffed My Little Pony that her grandmother bought her as a joke for her 23rd birthday, and she enjoys listening to Fraggle Rock soundtracks whether or not her children are in the car. 


Jennifer doesn't have spare time, but she makes it a point to spend at least one night a week with her sibling playing Sentinels of the Multiverse, and she ferociously guards quality time with her son and daughter. She cooks when she has the sanity for it--adding garlic to the recipe whether it calls for it or not--and tries very hard not to let her arachnophobia keep her out of her basement on laundry day.


Jennifer's influences include Terry Pratchett (for wit), Laurell K. Hamilton (for sexual tension), Jim Butcher (for roguish flair), and Kim Harrison (for mythos). She is currently writing the series of her heart and her dreams, the series that has been percolating in her brain for the last decade...Blood Trails. An Urban Fantasy Mystery series that will combine the classic whodunit spirit with a contemporary fantasy setting. Expect mystery, magic, and mayhem, with characters that will make you laugh, cry, and probably stare at the screen with your jaw hanging down to the floor. Well, that's how they affect Jennifer anyway...

USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Blackstream returns to her Blood Prince series with another enchanting twisted fairy tale in book three, as a devil-may-care incubus finds himself at the mercy of an imprisoned sun maiden with the world’s most overprotective witch for a mother… 

A WICKEDLY SEDUCTIVE DEMON 

Bound by a divine vow, the demon prince Adonis is forbidden from seeking the one thing he wants most—true love. Resigned to his fate, he hides his pain behind a cryptic smile and a puff of smoke, carrying on with his carnal pursuits of the flesh as his heart dies a little more with every passing lover. Then he meets a woman with the power to save him—but it will cost her her life. 

IF SHE LEAVES, SHE CAN NEVER GO HOME AGAIN 

Ivy has lived alone with her mother, locked away from the rest of the world, for her entire life. When a devastatingly handsome demon brings her isolation to a sudden and dramatic end, it takes only one searing kiss to shatter Ivy’s world. Now she’s desperate to see what else is out there, to have a life beyond the tiny existence she’s led so far. But if she leaves, there will be no going home. And the demon is clear about what he can offer her…and what he can’t.

BODY AND SOUL

An evil witch does not willingly give up the power she’s spent a lifetime building, and Ivy’s mother is ready to do whatever it takes to keep her daughter home. Despite the danger, Adonis and Ivy are drawn together like phoenixes to flame—and if they’re not careful, they’ll both burn.
