Revamped_RPbanner

It has been over a year since Part 3 – A Vampire on Vacation was published in July 2012.  Since then I have not released anything related to this series.  That’s a startling, and sobering fact, for me – even for my readers maybe– because for many months last year, I did not know if I’d return to writing this series.  I didn’t know if I’d keep writing at all.

With that being said, I have returned to the keyboard and will be releasing “The Vampire from Hell Returns (Part 4)” next month on Oct. 20th. (Join the Facebook Release Party.)  I’m very excited to continue Rayea’s story, at least for three more installments, and I’m delighted to say that, for bad or worse, I’m past the first obstacle I encountered during my first year of writing.  And I’m not looking back.  It may not always be smooth sailing from now on, but that’s okay because I’ll keep sailing.  I’m hoping many of you will join me for the ride.

Read An Excerpt

This excerpt features Michael, the arch angel Rayea (vampire heroine) falls for. I based Michael’s character on Alexander Skarsgard of course. Enjoy! ~ally

A drop of blood from my busted lip landed on Michael’s white T-shirt.  I groaned with pleasure.

“When was the last time you fed this vampire?” Michael asked.

Hearing the word ‘vampire,’ my attention snapped back to Michael’s face, and I snarled at him.  I wanted to devour this angel in my sights.

“You’ve got some long fangs there, Vampire.  What are those?  An inch and a half, maybe two?”  Michael managed a small, tentative smile despite the threat I posed.316796_250841628301339_240931305959038_771410_1598242809_n

I watched his every move, ready to strike, but feeling a force hold me back.  “Blood,” I replied.  I could hear it pumping in his veins, through his temples, and down the side of his neck.  His pulse reminded me of the waves slamming against the rocks.  An image of my rocking in his lap to that rhythmic dance surfaced in my mind, riding him, grinding against him over and over until…  To have him inside me, I thought.

The voice inside my head said, “Grab your popcorn!  This is gonna be good!

“Rayea, please calm down,” Blick interjected as he carefully approached us.  “We can’t make a scene.”

“I think it’s a little late for that,” Michael said.

“What do we do?” Blick asked him.

“I told you she needs blood.”

I nodded, staring at Michael.  Yes, she does, I thought.  That and a lot more.

The voice inside my head asked, “She needs blood!  Why did we not think of that before?

“You’re right.  God, I’m an idiot!  I’m the worst guardian angel ever!” Blick exclaimed, throwing up his hands.  “But she can’t have mine or yours for that matter.  J won’t approve it.”  He collapsed in a chair, behind Michael, shaking his head.  “Rayea, I’ve failed you.”

Michael looked over at him.  “Get a grip, man.  We move to Plan B.  Grab those items and I’ll take her to the living room.”

“Tasssty,” I hissed and smacked my lips when I witnessed Michael’s adam’s apple showing as he leaned his head back to speak to Blick.

Cautiously returning his attention to me, Michael said, “Look into my eyes.” The warmth of his smile echoed in his voice.  I stared at him, mesmerized by the ocean-blue color of his eyes.  Instantly, I felt relaxed, sane, and willing to submit to his will.

Great, the vampire is going googoo for the angel.

Shut up, I snapped at the voice inside my head.  He’s adorable. I sighed and returned his smile.

“If this doesn’t work, you can ask Gabriel to help out,” Michael said to Blick.

“Not funny,” Blick said.

Michael shrugged.  Sweeping me off the table, he gathered me in his arms and announced, “Let’s do this.”

Without any resistance, I floated into the living room as the angel carried me.  Isn’t he dreamy? I thought.

The voice inside my head responded, “You better latch your mouth around something on that angel or I will!

Michael positioned me on the large, comfy leather couch.  He was talking to me, but I didn’t pay any attention.  I was fascinated with the movement of his arms, the way his neck curved from side to side as he and Blick conversed.  I looked at Blick, and then Michael many times as I admired how both angels were attractive in their own right.  Were all angels beautiful? I wondered.  The roar of the ocean called me and I let the feeling pull me under into a heavenly bliss.

About Ally Thomas

When I’m not running the AS Fan Blog or skarsgarding, I spend time writing fiction. I actually created a vampire angel character based on Alexander Skarsagrd. His name is Michael and he’s in Part 2 of my series, the Vampire from Hell (which is available as a free download)Part2_AllyThomas_sm

I’m an avid reader of fantasy and paranormal romance novels. I like writing about vampires, werewolves, zombies, witches, and any fuzzy monsters who go bump in the night. In my stories, I try to imagine new origins for these traditional creatures and see where it takes me.  Currently I’m writing the Vampire from Hell series.
