She’s never been bitten. This should be fun.


    The kiss method is the only acceptable way to feed on a human, for they experience just as much pleasure from the bite as we feel drinking their blood. It’s euphoric, and some humans even become addicted to the sensation.


    I thumb her shiny wet lips covered in pink gloss and gently glide my thumb over them back and forth. Appreciative of my touch, she kisses my thumb and closes her eyes to take a deep breath. Then opens them looking into mine just as hungry.


    “I’ve been waiting for you, my Lord.” She backs away slowly, stroking her fingertips over her ample cleavage. “You’re a dying breed.”


    “You don’t say.” I raise my eyebrow, inching closer as she steps backward in her red heels.


    “A vampire, who enjoys the thrill of the chase.” Her trailing seduction leads her to stand next to the exit door.


I like where this is going.


I stalk toward her, running my sharp nails along the surface of the stainless steel countertop. 


    I tilt my head slightly. “Are you implying, you want me to chase you? Hunt you down? Ravish you?”


    She doesn’t hesitate. “That’s exactly what I’m implying. I want you to bite me, Vladimir…” The words “bite me” to a vampire sound just as tempting as hearing the words “fuck me” to an average man. “And when you catch me, you can have me any way you want,” she moans, slowly sliding her hands down her hips. A laugh escapes her lips and then she scurries out of the door. I give her a head start before sprinting after her.


I’m really starting to like this girl.

I was a pawn.
Weak and someone easily manipulated.
To be played with as he saw fit.
Until YOU.

YOU shone light in my now dark world.
It was YOU who made me smile.
For the first time in this game, I had hope.
All because of YOU.

The more powerful pieces on the board, however, were a threat to YOU and me.
They would win at any cost.
Two kings ruling with an iron fist.
Allies or opponents, it was hard to tell.

YOU promised to save me.
Told me we would win.

But then I was on the wrong side of the board.
This isn’t YOU, baby.
And I don’t know what to do.

The game is almost over and I’m counting on YOU.
Tick, tock…

Book: Jared: Kings of Guardian Book 5
Book 5 in the Kings of Guardians series – all the books are stand alone.
Author: Kris Michaels
Genre: Military Erotic Romance



Jared King had endured more than the normal amount of danger in his life.  He’d jumped from planes into hot landing zones, been shot at, almost blown up—twice, damn near killed more times than he cared to remember. Yet, nothing in his past compared to the danger of admitting his feelings for Christian Koehler. When Jared pushed Christian away too hard, once too often, the young man finally left and took Jared’s heart with him.

Once upon a time, Christian Koehler had idolized Jared King. But after two years of the arrogant man’s hot and cold mind games, Christian avoided the sexy Guardian like the plague. The jagged line between love and hate was paper thin and razor sharp, and Jared had pushed Christian across that line, with prejudice.

When Christian discovers what he believes is a common thread in several disappearances of the homeless and at-risk teens in his area, he immediately tells his superiors.  But neither his employer nor the D.C. cops believe the missing children are connected. Desperate to find out the truth, Christian swallows his pride and returns to the Kings and Guardian for help.

Jared seizes the opportunity to investigate the missing children and the unexpected chance to once again be part of Christian’s life. What he finds leads to a tempest of deceit, danger and intrigue that pulls Christian back into Jared’s world. This time, Jared vows to fight to keep Christian with him forever—no matter the cost.

“They all called you Prin,” he said at last.
“Yes.” He wasn’t going to mention how they behaved. Thank you. She took a bigger breath.
“That’s… an odd name.” His Berbainwick was strangely accented, his words all stretched out instead of clipped off. He kind of gargled them sometimes at the back of the throat. To her ears the language had never sounded half so charming before.
“It’s a nickname,” she explained, and then stopped, not willing to explain more. Touchy ground here.
“What does it stand for?” he asked. His voice was lilting and gentle, another tone entirely from before. “Princess?”
“Bet you say that to all the girls,” Prin replied. In fact, it was an abbreviation for ‘apprentice’ and a way of making fun of Hulgetta’s speech. She wasn’t going to tell him that, of course. Everything about him was gentle and refined. She kinda wanted to muss him up a little bit.
“I said nothing to them at all.” He looked puzzled.
She wrinkled her nose. “Never mind.”
“You are a princess then?” he said. He asked her a question in a language she didn’t understand. She looked down at her calloused fingertips and didn’t reply. Let him think what he liked. The silence stretched on. She looked up and his attractiveness hit her again like a physical blow.
His eyes had gone dark again, and he was a vision of sensitive torment. She felt herself involuntarily reaching towards him. Then, alas, the eyes changed back, and she regained a modicum of self-control. She stood up and paced around the cell, her heart still thudding about inside her chest.
“Who has imprisoned me?” he asked. “A murderous wizard? An evil enchantress?”
I did. “Technically speaking, she’s a sorceress,” Prin replied. “You don’t remember?”
He sniffed at the water in the tumbler.
“It’s not poisoned or tainted,” she said. “I freshened it with herbs myself. See?” She drank from the cup and then held it out to him to show him the sage leaves and borage blossoms. “Perfectly safe.” He took a tentative sip on his own, letting her hold the cup for him. The feel of his fingers sliding over hers. Her eyes widened, but he moved abruptly, pulling the cup away. As if he didn’t want to touch her.
“Thank you,” he said, not looking at her. Then he must have changed his mind about something. He looked up at her again, his eyes flickering black. “I thank you,” he said, this time with a tone of grave respect.
“You’re welcome,” she said, using the same formal tone. And did you know you’re smoking hot?
Lying there pliant, helpless, and half naked, he was so scrumptious her body itched to crawl on top of him. Moreover, all her fairy dust was up and screaming for him, and that just never happened to her with a guy. Ever.
She put the tumbler back on the wooden tray with the pitcher and stood there twisting her fingers up in her skirt. Nervous. Her mind strained for something to say. Her body looked for another excuse to bend over near him and reveal her cleavage. Get a grip, woman.
“And what are you called?” she asked, forbidding her fingers to play with her braids. The traitorous fingers took to the lacings on her corset instead, and she bit her lips a little to make them red. Where was her apprentice side? The scholarly side that wanted to learn? Pathetic.
“Princess, help me,” he whispered.
How was she ever going to refuse him anything when his eyes were all big and noble, yet softly luminous? She had felt loyal to Hulgetta. ‘Had’ being the operative word. Her loyalty was wobbling, big time. This was so wrong.
“Are you okay?” she said, filled with dread and concern. She leaned over the bed and put her hand on his brow again. Yes. It was warm now. She felt his cheek. It was hot. Spell all gone. Reluctantly, she took her hand away.
“Can you move your legs?”
He took her hand again and placed it back on his cheek, his lips parting a little. She went a little gooey and just stared at him, unable to think or move. He took that hand and kissed it.
“Help me escape.”
She stood up straight, breathless. Whoa. There it was. Bright needle-thin fear suddenly pierced the bubble.
“It would mean my life,” she said, simply.

But now there’s no escape when her past comes roaring down the Strip—in the oh-so-tempting form of the man she left behind…


Special Agent Noah Monroe has Shannon exactly where he wants her—in the back of his car in handcuffs. Her grifter father has been murdered, and the FBI needs Shannon to keep one of his scams in play to bag the big bad guy who was financing him. Once again a pawn in someone’s else game, Shannon will have to trust her instincts to survive both the peril threatening her—and the passion Noah reignites…

I didn’t set out to be a writer.


I went to university thinking I’d come out with a degree that would allow me to help people. And for a short time it did. But then I got married and had two children and 12-hour shifts were no longer an option. So I took a job as an office administrator and learned book keeping. When I had my third child, I chose to work from home and kept the books for my husband’s restaurants.


I’d been artsy all my life.

I wrote poetry and short stories in high school but never really considered it writing. It was just a way to express myself.


When the kids came along, I spent hours decorating their rooms, finding ways to incorporate whatever theme I’d come up with. I didn’t consider myself creative. I was just having fun.


Then we moved to a lovely village outside the city limits, and I found myself at home with a new baby and nothing to do. I was proficient at my bookkeeping and it took up little of my time. So I baked. Again, being creative never crossed my mind. I’d found something I enjoyed doing and I didn’t gain an ounce by sharing with my friends—letting them worry about the calories. Creative? Hey, I needed to stay busy.


No stranger to a gym, I learned I could get paid to workout. I became a fitness instructor. I’m known for the inventive ways I torture my members week after week. No creativity here. I’m just a sadist at heart.


I then rediscovered romance novels.

Karen Marie Moning became one of my favorite authors. On her website, she gave advice on how to become a writer, as did another of my favorites, Sherrilyn Kenyon. Me, a writer? Didn’t you have to go to school? Sure you did. I had friends who’d done just that. But I figured what the heck, and tinkered with a story. Getting published never crossed my mind. Again, this was just for fun, because I wasn’t trained to be a writer.


It was my husband who pointed out all the things I didn’t do to be creative. He encouraged me to go for it, to be a writer. I had my own hero and didn’t even realize it.


I joined the Romance Writer’s of America in 2007 and my local Canadian chapter shortly after that. In the summer of 2014, one year after I met my editor at the RWA conference in Atlanta, Kensington Publishing offered to publish my Women of Vegas series, and I signed with The Knight Agency. It may have taken me a little while to figure it out, but I am proud and happy to say I am a romance writer.
