I’m thrilled to have R.W. Buxton back. Not only the story is great, but he’s a very generous author who never shies away from sharing his stories or his life with the readers. I’ve had him over twice, and every time is great (this was a very subtle hint to run a search on my blog and know more about the story and the author).
Moscow Nights (An Erin Kingsly Novel Book 3) by R.W. Buxton released in October in the Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance genre.
Erin is desperate to save Gerry from shadowy forces that would do anything to prevent him from fulfilling the prophecy. But when she arrives, he’s with another woman and the worst thing is it’s Tina, his former partner at the FBI. Can she convince him the threat is real, and not just to him, but Mary his young daughter.
Halfway around the world ominous figures hiding in the night plan the unthinkable and Gerry is the only one that can stop them. The threat is genuine but will he believe her? Will he believe in the prophecy?
Erin must face her own past, a past she thought was over. It opens old wounds that send her careening on a path of destruction. Can she overcome them in time to save Gerry or will she lose everything because of a deep-rooted hurt that can’t be healed?
The book is 99 cents.
“How am I a threat? I didn’t even know about any of this.” Gerry turned his palms upward in his lap.
“First, he knows of you and found you, the reason we had to flee, but he has set himself up as the one to fulfill the prophecy. It’s simple, there can’t be anyone to threaten his position.”
“So, what, we’re going to just meet with him and tell him I’m not who he thinks I am?”
“It’s more complicated than that.” Erin looked over her shoulder at Mary, already asleep despite her claim, curled up in the large tan leather seat. She looked back at Gerry. “You already have a huge base of supporters, and he can’t have that. He wants complete control.”
“But there’s even more. He wants to bring us out of the shadows of night and enslave humanity. He’s perverted the prophecy. His idea of saving our race is to destroy humanity, which would ultimately destroy us. The true savior will save us from destruction, his destruction.”
Gerry blew through his teeth, making a small whistling noise. “So what you’re saying is we have to find this guy and destroy him before he kills me?”
AUTHOR Bio and Links:
I love a good paranormal read, something about the un-dead haunts the fringes of my mind. Mix in romance, love, loss, and you have a great story.
I voraciously read everything, fiction, and non-fiction but always find myself turning back to the darker stories. I’ve always wanted to write and the dream became a reality with Capital Thirst, and the remainder of the Erin Kingsly novels.
I spend most of my days designing and building websites, but my free time is devoted to my wife, family, and cats. Yes three grown children and three cats. Things can be hectic.
For fun you might find me driving winding roads with the top down or out photographing nature.
What elements make this book different from the other vampire stories?
I would love to think there are hundreds of things that make my book different from other vampire stories. To be honest, I’ve probably read a hundred over the years, and there are certain tropes you just can’t get away from, and I’m sure I have included some of those despite my best efforts not to.
One of the biggest differences between my book and others would be Erin, the protagonist and vampire, is a woman. Most vampire novels have a brooding, hunky male vampire that swoops the poor helpless woman off her feet because she can’t resist his sex appeal.
That brings me to my second point. Gerry isn’t swept off his feet by her amazing beauty. Sure, he falls in love with her, but it’s a tumultuous relationship. He finds it difficult to accept her for things she’s done and is unable, or maybe unwilling, to forgive her. She thinks he’s stubborn and frustrating. I think maybe it’s because of these differences that they can reach the depth of their relationship. For them it’s not so much the falling in love, but the rough road they both travel to get there.
When I wrote Capital Thirst, the first novel in the series almost six years ago, I thought Gerry being half vampire and half human was a creative twist. Certainly something new in the genre. I had never read anything like that. But just this year I read another book with a similar thing going on. I was crushed. But I still think this makes the book a little different from most vampire stories.
I’m sure there are many other differences, but I’ll wrap up with this. I’ve found in most vampire stories, the girl that falls for the hunky vampire by the end wants him to turn her so she can spend all eternity together. Gerry, as much as he ends up loving Erin, resents that she made him a half vampire. Not just that, but even though he loves her, he often detests what she is. He would rather accept growing old and losing her than becoming what she is.
I think it’s the dynamic of their relationship that makes it most different from other stories. As I said at the beginning, there are certain things people expect from a vampire story. Certainly one in the urban fantasy or paranormal romance genre. I certainly have those things, but I’ve tried to create a world that is different from the others. Often more imperfect than others in the genre. I hope that will attract people to the book.
