Neither Brenda nor Tami grew up writing stories or dreaming of one day being authors but that changed when they shared a joint dream of creating a world to bring to life the stories of a group of dangerously handsome supernaturals.
Brenda is a Southern California girl who grew up in chaos, having ten siblings. Her mother is a brave, courageous woman who gave birth to a small village of children and has successfully battled advanced stage breast cancer for almost two years. Her parents did something right and taught Brenda how to persevere and accomplish whatever she set her mind to. Whether that was completing her bachelors and Masters degrees, or writing books, she is always up for a challenge.
Brenda survived the brutal murder of her first husband, John DeCaprio, at the hands of the children he was counseling to go on and help children in similar situations. Brenda remarried years later and now lives with her husband and their three fun-loving, energetic children. She loves running, reading, cooking, and Monster Energy drinks. And, Tami’s margaritas!
Tami is a southern girl, born and raised in Georgia. She is married and has two boys, so needless to say, she is surrounded by testosterone. We are trying to bottle Tami’s strength and positive outlook on life. It has helped her beat breast cancer and she is a proud three-year survivor. She loves reading paranormal romances, running at the lake near her home, watching college football (Go Dawgs!!!), and is always in search of the next best margarita.
Their life journeys led them both to Texas and one another. They fast became best friends and can always be found together. Whether it’s lounging by the pool or writing steamy love scenes, they are frequently seen pissing themselves from laughter. It’s embarrassing, really. But that’s ok, life is good!!
Series: Rowan Sisters’ Trilogy #3
Authors: Brenda Trim and Tami Julka
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Recommended Age: 18+
Suvi is the youngest of the Rowan triplets, but prefers high heels to combat boots, and always choose the club over the battlefield. Unfortunately, if she isn’t rebuilding the business she shares with her sisters, she’s searching for their archenemy, Cele. Through all of the trials that Suvi and her sisters have been through with her sister’s mates, Suvi believes they’ve done their part, and it’s time for a celebration, but that isn’t in the cards for her. Suvi has waited her entire life to meet her Fated Mate, the man who she is meant to spend the rest of her life with, but when she finally meets him, she isn’t able to plan the party of the century. Instead, she and her sisters have seventy-two hours to investigate a murder, locate a rogue vampire and stop an evil witch from stealing their powers. Oh, and save her mate from a death sentence. She wants nothing more than to spend her days and nights in sensual oblivion with her vampire, but the clock is ticking, and her mate’s life along with it.
Caine DuBray’s world is upended when he wakes up next to a human female that has been drained dry. As the only vampire on scene, her death is immediately pinned on him. He believes he is innocent, but he can’t recall the details of their date. Rather than executing him immediately, the Vampire King gives him three days to prove his innocence, and points him to the Rowan Sisters, notorious for their growing powers and talent. He discovers that one of the witches he is directed to is his Fated Mate and their passion sets him on fire, leaving him desperate for the chance to spend eternity with the sexy witch. Will they be able to save him, or will Suvi face eternity without her Fated Mate?
A God stood before her. A male well above six feet tall with a firmly muscled body took up the entrance. He wasn’t like most supernatural males either. Most were rugged and casual, preferring jeans and t-shirts. There were the exceptions and this male was one hell of an exception in his black two-piece suit that was tailored to his sculpted body like a work of art. His shaggy black hair didn’t fit his attire as disheveled as it was, falling into his green eyes.
The sensation of electricity rippling through her veins stunned Suvi. There was always a rush when she practiced magic, but this was so much more than that. She was captured by his gaze and her entire being woke to pay attention. She noticed the haggard look on his face as he loosened his blue pin-striped tie, walking into the store. The way he moved reminded her of a panther and she wanted desperately to be his prey.
“What’s wrong with Suvi, daddy?” She heard Donovan ask and Braeden’s chuckle.
“You’ll understand some day, son. Come on. Let’s go get some ice cream down the street.” She heard the door sound again when Braeden and Donovan left but she didn’t move, she couldn’t, she was rooted to the spot.
Caught in an erotic trance, Suvi was aware that she was gawking and speechless. In her defense, any female would be in this male’s presence. The touch of her sisters brought her out of it, and she blushed with her embarrassment.
“Are you the Rowan sisters?” The somber note to his deep voice had Suvi doing a double take and that’s when she noted the haunted look to his gorgeous green eyes. She wondered what put that look there and oddly, she wanted to put a smile on his face and make that expression disappear.
Pema extended her hand. “Yes, we are. I’m Pema and these are my sisters, Isis and Suvi,” she pointed to them in turn. “How can we help you?” Suvi noticed how Ronan had abandoned hanging shelves and come to stand directly behind Pema.
“I’m not sure where to begin and I don’t even know if you can do anything.” He seemed nervous and out of sorts and Suvi wanted to promise him she’d move heaven and earth to help him. “I’m Caine DuBray. Jace and Zander thought maybe you three could help me with this situation I have suddenly found myself in. It’s a nightmare really.” He paused and placed his hands in his pockets. She saw the muscles flexed in his neck from clenching his jaw tightly.
Suvi was inexplicably drawn to him and overcome with a fierce need to erase the shadows. She wanted to draw him into her arms and hold him tightly. She knew what would put a smile on his face and she was happy to oblige. Not that she was being entirely selfless given that she was pretty sure it would put a smile on hers, too.
