It starts as an intervention for a friend, but it ends in bloodshed, lust, betrayal and death…as love often does after dark.
When Emily’s husband, Land, calls her to come down to the warehouse district at sunset, she thinks it’s just another job for their para-extermination company.
However, he says that he’s finally caught Matt, the third member of their team, who was bitten by a werewolf a few weeks ago and has been missing ever since.
Emily races to the warehouse, where instead of the friendly intervention she and Land had planned, she finds Matt wild in his cage, a creepy vampire duct-taped to a pipe, Land covered in blood from a bite mark on his neck—and not a single easy answer in sight.
Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of horror, gore and death.
Publisher’s Note: This story has been previously released as part of the Wild After Dark anthology by Totally Bound Publishing.
This short story starts out with a phone call to Emily from her husband, Land. He found their roommate and business partner, Matt, and wants her to come down to their warehouse. She gets there and finds Matt in a cage, Land covered in blood, and a vicious vampire bound by duct tape. What?!?! Things take a crazy turn and Emily has hot, wolfy sex with Matt, Land dies and turns into a vamp, and Emily’s life changes forever.
I was so pissed off while reading this story. How dare Land and Matt do the things they did to Emily? I hated Land. I hated Matt. But, most of all, I hated the vamp that started the spiral into crazy town that created the mess of their lives! I can’t delve too deeply into the details without revealing spoilers, but this kind of anger is what makes for an amazing story! I absolutely LOVE what the author did and the tale she told within the few pages of this tale. The fact that I felt anything for these characters is the sign of a great read to me. I did eventually come to enjoy, and even like, Emily, Land, and Matt. Plus, HOLY HOTNESS!! The sex scenes are intense and so very steamy!!
I highly recommend this short story!
