Blog Tour: Aurora Sky Vampire Hunter - Excerpt + Giveaway

Title: Aurora Sky (Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter #1)
Author: Nikki Jefford

Her blood is toxic to vampires.

If there is one thing eighteen-year-old Aurora Sky wants, it's to get off the iceberg she calls home. Being kissed before she graduates wouldn't hurt either.

Then a near-fatal car wreck changes everything. Government agents step in and save Aurora's life in exchange for her services as a vampire hunter in Alaska. Basically she's a glorified chew toy. All thanks to her rare blood type, which sends a vampire into temporary paralysis right before she has to finish the job...by hand.

Now Aurora's only friends are groupies of the undead and the only boy she can think about may very well be a vampire.

(Mature YA/New Adult series. Contains mild language, violence, sexual situations . . . and blood sucking.)

Title: Northern Bites (Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter #2)
Author: Nikki Jefford

Love bites.
Probation sucks.

Thanks to Dante’s recklessness, Aurora is now partners with Valerie: the redheaded, backstabbing vixen.

Dante is in full flirt mode. Fane’s tactics are more ruthless. Something carnal has awakened in Aurora and neither boy is helping tame her cravings.

When a member of the unit’s team is found dead, Aurora and Valerie are sent after a vampire in Sitka, but Aurora suspects the killer’s much closer to home.

Excerpt:
     My phone beeped inside my pack. Relieved by the distraction, I turned my back to Valerie and dug it out.
     Speak of the devil. I’d received a text from Dante.
     Any action?
     Not yet. You? I typed and waited.
     Nothing. Where are you?
     Hotel room.
     What are you doing?
     Just chilling.
     “Just chilling?” Valerie repeated over my shoulder. “That’s all you’ve got?”
     I held my phone against my chest. “Do you mind?”
     “Come on. Let’s see what he said.”
     “I don’t know why you need to see it.” Nonetheless, I pulled the phone away from my body and held the screen so we could both see.
     Cool.
     Not really. I have to share a room with Valerie, I typed for Valerie’s benefit.
     “Good one,” she said. And she sounded like she meant it. “Nothing on this planet gets a guy’s blood pumping like the thought of two women sharing a bedroom.” She leaned in closer.
     Dante texted back: Just remember, if you’re going to fight, use pillows.
     Valerie snorted. “See? Typical.”
     Before I could respond to Dante’s text, he sent a follow up message.
     And you can only wear underwear. Hey, I don’t make the rules. ;)
     Whatever, I typed.
     “Give me that.” Valerie grabbed the phone out of my hands before I could send the message. She deleted “whatever.”
     “Dante’s messing with you, and you’re playing right into his hands. This is exactly what he’s expecting, Aurora. It’s time he got a dose of his own medicine.” Valerie began typing. I tried to see, but her hair blocked my view when she leaned forward. Only when Valerie lifted her head did I see what she’d written and sent.
     Actually she stepped out, so it’s just you and me.
     I breathed a sigh of relief. That wasn’t too bad.
     Dante messaged back instantly. Meaning?
     I wanted to ask Valerie the same question.
     Valerie smirked and typed. Meaning I’ll strip if you strip.
     “Valerie!” I cried.
     She held up a hand. “Let’s see what Mr. Hot Shot replies to that.”
     I had to admit I was curious. We watched the screen. It remained blank.
     Valerie snickered. “Two can play this game, Don Juan.”
