Some Write It Hot

Lights Out! by Amber Green

Before I’d ever heard of ERA, I was already a big fan of some ERA members. Amber Green has been a long time idol of mine. She writes memorable stories in several genres.

When I decided to publish A Scarlet Past direct to Kindle, I thought of her huntsmen and begged to include a excerpt as part of the bonus content. She generously contributed a freshly edited first chapter.

For those not familiar with her huntsmen series, you’re in for a treat.

For those who don’t want to wait, you don’t have to, clickedy click to buy Lights Out now.

November, 1942: Headlines scream of war overseas, not of monstrous Hydes lurking in the blacked-out streets of New York City. Yet Hydes once driven underground by electric light have reclaimed the dark hours.

The city’s Guardian summons Huntsmen Jack French and his twin, Tommy, to combat the Hydes. Only half a step from becoming monsters themselves, the twins risk life and soul to protect the people of the daylight world. Their chances of survival are small indeed, but that’s what war is. That’s what Huntsmen do.

After her mother’s murder gives The Home Front new meaning, Lorie-the-Riveter volunteers for frontline duty in the secret war against the Hydes. Jack and Tommy need her as a lure. More, feeding on her orgasmic energies might keep them from taking that fatal half-step into the darkness. Lorie loves with the intensity of a wartime romance, but she knows the score — she’s a convenience for this mission, and the guys won’t spare a thought for her once they move on. Jack grimly holds his affection at arm’s length; the woman a Huntsman loves is too likely to die screaming under him.

Under Jack’s intimate tutelage, Lorie becomes a perfect feeder — and the consummate bait. But when a beloved face becomes a monster’s face, will she have the grit to do what must be done?

  5. Thank you all:) I loved stories of WWII long before writing this, but this is the one that gave me confidence to write in that era. It won’t be my last WWII story.
