Award winning and bestselling author, Valerie Twombly grew up watching Dark Shadows over her mother's shoulder, and from there, her love of the fanged creatures blossomed. Today, Valerie has decided to take her darker, sensual side and put it to paper. When she is not busy creating a world full of steamy, hot men and strong, seductive women, she juggles her time between a full-time job, hubby, and her dog, in Northern IL. Valerie is a member of Romance Writers of America and Fantasy, Futuristic and Paranormal Romance Writers.
This book is a spin-off from another series. It was difficult to think about what our world might be like in a post-apocalypse. How long would we have power? Those kinds of things. My readers love it and think it's a different look in the paranormal romance genre.
Uprising: Dark Horizons
Ryder stared out the bank of windows at the city skyline, the buildings surrounded by gray clouds that threatened an early snow. Weeks seemed an eternity. One day he had been managing his nightclub after a brutal mission overseas where he and his Seal team had extracted a terrorist leader. The next he was fucking an exotic beauty only to have her bite him on the neck. His life changed that very instant. Blinding hunger tore through him and a dark need to tear out someone’s throat followed. He’d fought and won the battle. Learned how to feed without maiming anyone and started to adapt to his new life. Then the damn plague hit.
