Victoria Johnson loves her life. She’s her own boss in a quaint beachside town, and has great friends who keep her grounded. If only they knew who she really is: an heiress to an ancient race who possesses astonishing superhuman powers. It’s Victoria’s duty to restore her clan of Light Hunters to their former glory by choosing the perfect mate. In Christopher Sombrosa, she just may have found him. Strong, smart, and successful, Christopher exudes a powerful energy. Their connection is sensual, irresistible-and forbidden.

A member of the Shadow Hunter clan, Christopher has defied his own father to lead his people away from affliction and violence. Yet he cannot ignore his duty to carry on his ancient bloodline. Stunningly beautiful and brimming with an erotic life force, Victoria is everything Christopher ever hoped for in a mate . . . but as a Light Hunter, she’s his mortal enemy. Together, they could unite their warring tribes. But murderous factions on both sides don’t want peace-and they’ll stop at nothing to keep light and darkness apart forever . . .

I’ve been reading romances for as long as I can remember, going back to the summer I read and re-read WUTHERING HEIGHTS until the librarian told me I could not take the book out again as other people needed a chance to read it!

Denied the doomed romance of Heathcliff and Catherine, I turned my attentions to what some might say were an odd mix: Shakespeare and Ian Fleming.

There’s no doubt in my mind that those choices greatly influenced my writing, especially in THE CLAIMED, the second book in the Sin Hunters series.

Action. Adventure. Angst. THE CLAIMED has all those elements that I love!, Christopher Sombrosa is a determined and broody alpha hero who falls in love with the absolute worst woman for him: Victoria Johnson.

So why is Victoria not the woman for Christopher? Think Romeo and Juliet, Capulet and Montague.

Victoria is the future leader of her Light Hunter clan while Christopher is not only one of the Dark Ones, he is will one day assume command of his Shadow Hunter people.

Did I forget to mention that the Light and Shadow Hunters have been mortal enemies engaged in a civil war for several hundred years?

Add to the mix some rather nefarious villains in the form of Christopher’s father and ex-fiancee and the betrayal of someone dear to Victoria and I think you’ll find THE CLAIMED will keep you turning pages until the very end.

But unlike Catherine, Heathcliff and all those throwaway Bond Girls, the hopeful romantic in me just had to find a path to a new and exciting place for Christopher and Victoria.

I hope you will enjoy their fight for a better tomorrow for not only themselves, but their race of Hunters.
