Title: BLOODSTONE

Author: Helen C. Johannes

Genre: Fantasy Romance

Book Blurb:

What if looking at the face of the man you loved meant death?

Years ago, warrior Durren Drakkonwehr was cursed by a mage. Now feared and reviled as the Shadow Man, he keeps to himself, only going to town to trade rare bloodstones—petrified dragon's blood—for supplies. Though he hides his face, he can't hide his heart from the woman who haunts his dreams...

Needing bloodstones for a jewelry commission, Mirianna and her father journey across the dreaded Wehrland where the beast-men roam. When their party is attacked, only the Shadow Man can save them. Strangely drawn to him, Mirianna offers herself in return for her father's rescue.

Living in the ruined fortress with the Shadow Man, Mirianna slowly realizes that a flesh-and-blood man—not a fiend—hides there in hoods and darkness. But are love and courage enough to lift the curse and restore the man?

Excerpt:

“What about us? What do we do?”

Only the hood rotated, cocking with exaggerated deliberation. “Why, you die, old man.”

Her father blanched. His grip on Mirianna’s arms faltered.

She saw the Shadow Man turn, saw the muscles of his thighs bunch as he prepared to leap down the hillside, saw, in the corner of her eye, shapes gathering along the tree line below, horrible shapes she’d seen only hours before rushing at her from a darkened clearing. With a shudder, she broke from her father’s grasp.

“Please!” She reached out to the black sleeve. “Help us!”

He recoiled at her touch like one snake-bitten. The sudden, sharp focus of his regard staggered her, but she backed no more than a step. No matter how he terrified her, he’d helped her once. She’d been led to him again, and not, her instincts told her, without reason.

“Please,” she repeated. “Help us. I—we’ll do anything.”

“Anything?”

His voice was a whisper that caressed flesh. Mirianna’s stomach quivered. Her breasts tingled. Her mouth grew even drier. Without thinking, she slid her tongue along her lips. Vaguely, she wondered what she’d done. And why time seemed suspended, as if everyone but she and the Shadow Man had been cast in stone and all sound arrested. All sound except the taut, guttural repeat of his question.

If you could dress up as anything or anyone this Halloween, what or who would it be and why?

I think it would be fun to glam it up as a princess or a fairy godmother, all those glittery, poufy skirts and maybe some wings and a sequined mask—all things I’ve never worn and no one would expect of me, just once.

Explain why your featured book is a treat to read:

Petrified dragon's blood. A beastly Shadow Man. A beauty, lost but unafraid, in the dreaded Wehrland, where magic is more than legend and dragons might not all be dead. High fantasy, real romance, and all manner of things that go bump in the night.
