This is a surprise to me, too! The Ugliest Sweater is coming out in 4 days, so I was planning something Christmas-y — and then I checked my e-mail.
Aria, the cover artist over at NineStar Press, has done an amazing job here. The longer I look at it, the more I see to like — the colour scheme, the graves, the subtle hints of plant life … It’s hard to talk about why I like it without getting into spoiler territory, but let’s leave it at that I am very excited right now (also about to be late for work but shush).
Thorns and Fangs.
Caught between two dangerously hot vampires and a necromancer who wants him for all the wrong reasons—and that’s only the start of Nate’s problems.
Escort Nate prides himself on two things: his ability to please his clients and his normality – living in the monster capital of the world, ordinary is rare. Hunter, a darkly charming vampire with more charisma than is good for him, decides Nate is just what he needs. Nate’s sympathetic nature and skill in the bedroom are put to the ultimate test. But Hunter wants Nate for someone else – his brother, Ben. Nate is immediately attracted by the control with which Ben holds his sensitive nature in force. Too afraid of becoming a monster to allow himself to feel, Ben struggles to resist Nate’s generosity of emotion. As a vindictive necromancer makes Ben his target of revenge, Nate discovers that making people feel good doesn’t compare to making Ben feel. As Nate’s normal world crumbles around him, and he desperately searches for a way to save Ben, Nate is unable to escape becoming the necromancer’s latest victim.
