Love Kills is book 2 in the developing Redcliffe series. In the quiet Cornish seaside town of Redcliffe, Jessica Stone recovers from an horrific werewolf attack and comes to terms with revelations that her lover, Jack Mason, is a vampire, his brother, Danny, the werewolf pack leader, and her best friend, Simon, is a werewolf. Add to that her discovery that she is a witch, and life is suddenly a whole lot harder than it used to be. Jessica has to fight for her own life and Jack’s when faced with his jealous vampire master who wants her old lover back. But things are never easy, and a vampire master is not so easy to defeat…
The Redcliffe novels series follow the adventures of bookshop owner Jessica Stone as she meets a man and falls in love, only to discover the hidden werewolf secrets of her close friends. That includes Simon Bunce, manager of the Ship Inn, who turns out to be lieutenant to the Redcliffe werewolf pack, and lover to the wolf alpha Danny Mason. He fights to protect his master from the ethereal animal familiar who threatens to claim their pack. Who knew the Cornish coast could be so deadly?
Sally opened a door further along the corridor.
“This is Danny’s-” she said, and then stopped abruptly.
I looked into the room to see Danny and Simon sharing a passionate kiss in front of a desk. They both jumped apart and then smiled sheepishly at us and I gasped in surprise.
Sally finished, “-office. Sorry boys I didn’t know we were interrupting!” she said with a smile and a wink.
I stood awkwardly in the doorway, and Simon stepped away from the desk rubbing his mouth with the back of his hand. Danny ruffled a hand through his hair in a gesture identical to his brother, and then he stepped forward, smiling.
“Jessica,” he said warmly, “it’s good to see you here. I was going to meet you upstairs but I got waylaid.” He looked meaningfully at Simon, who blushed and ducked his head.
I glanced at Sally who just smiled, walked into the room, and sat on the sofa adjacent to the desk, where Simon was now sitting. I was confused. She didn’t seem at all bothered by their behaviour even though I knew she was in love with Danny. This must be a wolf thing. I cleared my throat and looked at Danny.
“Yeah I bumped into Sally upstairs and she brought me down,” I said, “Should I leave?”
Danny shook his head and moved towards me.
“No of course not,” he said, “Simon and I were just discussing some pack business. Actually, Simon could you tell Sally please? I will give Jessica a tour.”
Simon nodded and turned his attention to Sally, and I followed Danny out into the corridor.
