_________________________________________________________________________________

In the Shadows… 

London’s a great city, but if I could offer one little piece of advice—don’t go down any dark alleys alone.

Actually, maybe the advice should be—don’t go down dark alleys at all—not with anyone. Because you can never be sure whether your companion is who—or what—they say they are.

Of course I go down dark alleys all the time, and in the good old days I lured my fair share of… but I digress. That’s all in the past. I’m a reformed character. Most of the time.

My name is Piers Lamont, and I’m the big boss over at the Order of the Shadow Accords.

Not many people know about us—that’s part of the whole ‘Shadow’ thing—we like to keep a low profile. But we are there, working in the background, making the world a safe place for you lot.  Okay, maybe that’s not really our priority, more of a bi-product, but all the same a little gratitude is appreciated (and all blood donations thankfully received—just wander down one of those dark alleys I mentioned and we’ll find you).

So about the Order. We’re based right in the centre of the best city in the world—London. A far more interesting place than most people realize and a crossroads to many other even more interesting places.

A long time ago, the Earth was a lot more fun. It was a sort of free for all, with the demons (pretty much great guys) and the fae (complete assholes and only good for one thing—they taste as sweet as sin) generally causing havoc. I don’t blame them. Everyone needs to blow off steam now and then, and I’ve caused a good bit of havoc myself in my younger, less responsible (less boring) days. But things got to the point where there was a good chance mankind would be destroyed in the crossfire, and we didn’t want that for obvious reasons (did I mention I’m a vampire? Most of the Order are, and we have a vested interest in the survival of mankind). And so the Shadow Accords were born.

According to the Accords, demons and fae must stay in their own dimensions. Demons in the Abyss. Fae in the Faelands. Anyone who doesn’t risks getting zapped by moi (did I also mention I’m French? It doesn’t get much hotter than a French Vampire).

Of course, there are all sorts of ways to move between dimensions and people from both sides are always slipping through to do a little sight-seeing or whatever. On the whole we turn a blind eye. But just occasionally, things get out of hand, and a full blown war explodes. That’s fun.

Up to now, we’ve always managed to calm things down, send everyone home (or blow them into little pieces) and lock down the portals. And London returns to normal. But in the end they’ll find another way through… if they want to enough. And it all starts over again.

Things have been quiet for a while now. Too long really—I have a feeling that trouble is brewing somewhere and it involves my old friend and ex-head of the Order, Christian Roth. But I’ll be ready.

You know there are a lot of people out there who sneer at the idea of me as a policeman—but I’m good. I get the job done. I keep you safe…as long as you take my advice, keep clear of those dark alleys, and stay away from the Shadows.

About Nina:

Nina Croft grew up in the north of England. After training as an accountant, she spent four years working as a volunteer in Zambia which left her with a love of the sun and a dislike of 9-5 work. She then spent a number of years mixing travel (whenever possible) with work (whenever necessary) but has now settled down to a life of writing and picking almonds on a remote farm in the mountains of southern Spain.

You can visit Nina around the web here: Website | Twitter | Facebook

About this Book:

Tara Collins just wants to be normal. Everyone else wants her dead.

Tara’s eccentric aunt raised her to be fearful of the world and follow the rules. But after her aunt’s death, Tara is ready to take control and experience life for the first time. But she quickly discovers that everything she’s been told is a web of lies. Determined to solve the mystery of who she is truly, she hires a private investigator to help her uncover the truth.

Christian Roth is more than your average PI. A vampire and ex-demon hunter, Christian lives among the humans, trying to be “normal.” But recently, things seem to be falling apart. There’s a crazed demon hell-bent on revenge hunting him down and a fae assassin on the loose with an unknown target. Plus, the Order he abandoned desperately needs his help.

As the secrets of Tara’s past collide with the problems in Christian’s present, she finds herself fighting her attraction to the dark and mysterious investigator. Falling in love does not fit into her plans at all, but Tara soon learns that some rules are meant to be broken.
