THURSDAY TEASER - Sam Crescent

Sam's first book in her new series was released this week!  Here's a teaser...GO BUY IT!  Can I just say I LOVE the cover!

***

Book one in The Valentines Series

A war is about to begin.
Sophie Ford has a secret. Fear for herself and her friend has her running to the vampire council in search of protection.
And she is bonded to a vampire.
Robert Valentine knows Sophie is hiding something, but what? She tempts him as no little human ever has in his whole life. He is the eldest son of the most powerful family in the world.
Forces they cannot control are fighting against them. Time is running out. Sophie's secret is about to be exposed. Is there time to save the ones they love? Can Robert and Sophie move on and survive the war that is about to begin?

Reader Advisory: This book is the first of a series and contains scenes of violence between werewolves and vampires.

Excerpt:

     “Let her go.” His gaze remained on her, but his voice held the promise of pain for her new friend.
     “Buzz off, man. This girl is taken.”
Sophie tensed. Of all the stupid things to say…
A second later, Robert had the butt-head pressed up against the bar, his body at a ninety-degree angle.
     It looked painful and Sophie winced.
     “I said ‘let her go,’ and when I speak, you do what I say. Don’t come into my club again.”
     Silence fell inside the club, the heavy music stopping as everyone took in the scene of vampire against human—the owner against the customer.
     There were rules and this man had just broken the most important of them. Never go up against a vampire. Especially not the boss.
     The man scrambled against the bar and tripped all the way to the door. Her would-be rescuer buttoned up his suit jacket, rearranged his sleeves, then looked around the room. Considering he’d just lashed out at a human in front of more than a hundred witnesses, he appeared remarkably calm and collected. Sophie couldn’t help but admire him.
     He gestured for the other people to continue and music filled the silence. Dancers began shaking on the dance floor and the barman continued to serve drinks, the drama of moments ago forgotten. Robert took her by the arm, forcing her along the dimly lit corridor away from people—away from witnesses.  Sophie could feel the pulse in her throat.
     He was angry. She could sense it.
     Everyone they passed moved out of their way.
     Eyes followed them. She could feel them boring into her back.
     Robert Valentine dominated the entire club.
     Moments later, he thrust her inside an empty room. At least, she hoped it was empty. The room was dark, with the only light coming from candles. It was small but cosy. A large bed and a cabinet filled the tiny space. The walls were painted black and the silk sheets were a deep shade of red—the colour of blood.
     Swallowing past her fear, Sophie looked up at him.
     His eyes were black, his body shaking with rage.
     Instinctively, she took a step back.
     He came forward, mirroring her every move.
     “What are you doing here?”
