2013 Rainbow Awards Submission: Lou Harper - Spirit Sanguine

Spirit Sanguine by Lou Harper
Publisher: Samhain Publishing, Ltd. (April 30, 2013)
Amazon Kindle: Spirit Sanguine

Is that a wooden stake in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

After five years in eastern Europe using his unique, inborn skills to slay bloodsuckers, Gabe is back in his hometown Chicago and feeling adrift. Until he’s kidnapped by a young, sexy vampire who seems more interested in getting into his pants than biting into his neck.

Harvey Feng is one-half Chinese, one-hundred-percent vampire. He warns Gabe to stay out of the Windy City, but somehow he isn’t surprised when the young slayer winds up on his doorstep. And why shouldn’t Gabe be curious? A vegetarian vampire isn’t something one sees every day.

Against their better judgment, slayer and vampire succumb to temptation. But their affair attracts unexpected attention.

When Chicago’s Vampire Boss makes Gabe an offer he can’t refuse, the unlikely lovers are thrust into peril and mystery in the dark heart of the Windy City. Together they hunt for kidnappers, a killer preying on young humans, and vicious vampire junkies.

However, dealing with murderous humans and vampires alike is easy compared to figuring out if there’s more to their relationship than hot, kinky sex.

Growing up isn't easy, and no one knows that better than Roberto. Raw & Gritty, Afuera follows Roberto, a young Latino man who comes into his own by being everything his tradition & culture tells him not to be. He struggles to understand & attempts to hide, that which is in his heart. From the outside, he seems to have the perfect life, but in fact, it's all a lie. In a dramatic turn of events, it eventually all comes apart, but through sheer guts & determination, & his willingness to succeed, he triumphs over this darkness & starts a new life for himself. Both a coming out story of a young man's difficult relationship with an abusive father & a look at modern teenage life, from school to sports to sexual conquests, Afuera shows readers - young & old, of any race - that even if they have a dark side, even if they don't fit in the way society wants them to, they have goodness inside of them, & all they need to do is let it out.
