Hi everyone –
Today is a special day for me! NIGHT WALKER came into the world 3 years ago and now so many books later, Calisto and Kate still hold a special place in my heart! J
If you’ve never read the first book in the Night Series, here’s the blurb and cover…
Two and a half centuries ago, Calisto Terana lost everything when a zealous priest murdered the woman he loved. Now, desperate for another chance to love her, he wants redemption for the mistake that cost her life.
She’s haunted by dreams of her own death…
After catching her fiance with another woman, Kate Bradley returns to San Diego to clear her head. The last thing she needs is romance, but after meeting Calisto she’s drawn to him in ways she doesn’t understand.
They’ve waited in the shadows for centuries…
Calisto has no doubt Kate is the reincarnation of his lost love, but the Fraternidad Del Fuego Santo has a new watcher with dark ambitions of his own. As old enemies reemerge and a new threat arises, the betrayal that enslaved Calisto to the night might destroy the only woman he’s ever loved again.
Today I pulled some of my favorite quotes from the book to share…
“He’d given up his mortality, his soul, for this moment, this second chance, and if she fell in love with him again, he needed to know it was real.”
“She brought her hand to his chest. His chiseled muscles
responded to her touch, and a moan escaped her as he clutched her
tighter. Calisto’s fingers slid through her hair, and her lips parted, her
tongue tasting him, tangling with his until her knees buckled.
Dear God, this man could kiss.”
“You made it clear you did not want to discuss the past with him. I followed through on your request.”
“By beating him senseless?”
Calisto looked at Tom, then back to her. “Perhaps he never had any sense to begin with.”
“The monsignor called after him, “If I am to blame, then why have I not met the same fate as Brother Mentigo and Brother De Cardina before him? Why am I still alive?”
Calisto glared over his shoulder at the monsignor and growled. “Because there are worse punishments than death. Live with your guilt, old man. May it rot in your heart and kill you slowly for many
years to come.”

A psychic gift…
Muriah La Deaux’s latest job requires her to locate an ancient codex detailing a prophecy of an immortal birth. But before she can deliver it, her client is brutally murdered. Now a man with chaos in his eyes wants the codex she’s hiding.
An immortal child…
Issa is one of the original Night Walkers, a proud protector of the mortal world. Now, when the survival of his entire race rests on protecting an unborn child, Issa is the only immortal strong enough to protect Muriah on a risky mission–locate the lost scrolls that will trap their foe–but his tenuous grasp on his sanity is slipping.
The ultimate sacrifice…
Muriah’s headstrong spirit awakens feelings in Issa that are best left buried. But as the battle between love and chaos ensues, sacrifices must be made…
