Before I share my extract with you here is a little bit about the book.
It’s hard to stay alive in a world full of blood-suckers
Kate is trying very hard to stay alive in a world thrown into chaos. Charlie is trying very hard in the background to get Kate to notice him. When Caleb comes to the scene, things change, but is it for the better?
Kate had just begun her new job as a high school science teacher and was looking forward to living a suburban dream life. All her hopes and dreams turn into smoke as a virus turns people into vampires who roam the world in packs, killing everybody they can get their hands on. Together with her friends, she hides at a campground. They think they are safe there. They are wrong.
When Kate has to flee again, she gets separated from her friends, accidentally bumps into a handsome sucker called Caleb, who then mysteriously disappears, and now has to pretend to be a sucker to stay alive. Having met Caleb, surviving is no longer the only thing on Kate’s mind.
Will Kate stay alive and human while pursuing this mysterious stranger?
Pick up this action-packed, fast-paced, suspenseful novel and explore the depths of Kate’s emotions as she struggles to make sense of it all.
Excerpt 2 from Living Like A Vampire
After a chase, Kate has been caught and cornered by Caleb, a handsome sucker, and he is about to bite her and infect her with the virus.
There was no connection between what was going on in my head and what came out of my mouth.
“Will it hurt?” I asked, surprising myself again.
He moved his mouth closer to my neck, nuzzling my skin. He then pulled down the zipper of my jacket and pulled the collar away to expose more flesh.
“Only a little, at first,” he said.
I was feeling anxious now, excited by his warm closeness and fearful of what was about to happen. Unable to resist, I moved my head away from him, to give him better access to my jugular vein. He moved my hair back with his hand, his fingertips lightly stroking my neck. My eyes closed as a shiver of ecstasy went through my body. His touch gave me goosebumps. When his lips touched my neck, my heart began pounding like a maniac. His lips parted, and I could feel his fangs on my skin. I could barely suppress a groan, this was so intense. Deep underneath his fangs, my carotid artery beat like a drum. Boom boom, boom boom. I wanted this moment to last forever. As he widened his jaws, he gently increased the pressure with his wet fangs. My whole body stiffened from the pain when they pierced my skin.
“Caleb,” Sasha said from not too far away.
Go away, woman!
