Ugh YOU GUYS. I’m so excited to share the cover for The King with you today, one month from its pub date.
I’m both excited and nervous for readers to get their hands on the book. This is, technically, my first full-length piece that isn’t inspired by characters who already exist (aka Loki and Aphrodite, my precious myth bbs from Lovers and Liars). You got a taste of Delia and Claude in The Fool, but there’s a whole lot more to them in The King.
Anyway. Just standard author excitement and insecurities. Let’s get to the good stuff.

The King (Games We Play, #2)
Not all vampire hunters dress in head-to-toe leather and sit on rooftops overlooking a gritty vampire-ridden city. Meet Delia Roberts. At twenty-six, she’s a mid-level hunter with the Harriswood League, and, despite her best efforts, isn’t scaling the hunter hierarchy anytime soon.
Months earlier, desperate to prove herself, Delia snuck into an exclusive vampire masquerade, only to wind up with a bite on her neck courtesy of clan leader and gorgeous vampire Claude Grimm. Fearful of the League’s punishment for succumbing to a bloodsucker’s charms, Delia does what she can to hide the bite and pretends the night never happened.
These days, however, Claude is determined to win her over, insisting the spark they felt that fateful night is worth pursuing. As Delia tries to ignore her steadily growing feelings for the enemy and fend off a mounting quarter-life crisis, vampire clan tensions worsen around the quiet city of Harriswood, bringing with them a danger unlike any the League has ever seen.
One that might change the course of history for good.
