Blog Tour: Morgan by Liz DeJesus

By- Liz DeJesus
Genre- Horror/Erotica/LGBT
Publication Date- June 2014

In an instant, Detective Morgan Carbone's life changes from day to night. Sociopath, serial killer and charmer, David McAllister won't reveal where the bodies of several young women are located but Morgan is determined to get answers. She gets more than she bargained for when during an interrogation he attacks her by sinking his teeth into her hand. Though the wound heals quickly and perfectly, it leaves her with an insatiable bloodlust as she has now turned into a werewolf like her serial killer nemesis. With her world no longer as she knew it, she is propelled into a dramatic, action-packed journey that includes being forced to leave the country to kill an ancient vampiress. However, when Morgan sees her intended target, she finds that not only does the woman remind her of her one true love whom she lost years before, but she is falling for her as hard as she did with her former lover. Now Morgan must decide whether to complete her mission or risk her own life by giving in to her heart's desire.


The sound of dogs barking echoed in her ears as she sped through the woods. They were getting closer. She was tired. The trees sped past her becoming nothing but a dark green blur. She was actually panting. It had been a while since she remembered what being out of breath was like. They had been chasing after her for days. She didn’t even know who they were. All she knew was that she couldn’t let them catch her. There were too many of them for her to fight. She didn’t want to get caught. She loved her freedom too much. She refused to be confined to the world the way she was before.

Kiss my ass.

She willed her legs to run faster even though her thighs burned and ached, begging for rest. She enjoyed feeling the soil beneath her feet and the air running through her knotted hair. The way the wind caressed her naked body as she ran. Then the smell of the river hit her. She knew that once she reached it, the dogs would lose her scent.

Almost free.
She heard a soft pop and hiss. Something pinched the side of her neck. She gasped as she arched her back. She stumbled gracelessly onto the ground. Morgan reached behind her, pulled the dart out of her neck and tossed it aside. She felt the drug inside the dart take effect. Her legs began to feel numb. She wanted to cry when she realized she had lost sensation of her feet. She tried to stand up but she had no choice but to fall to the ground. Morgan dug her fingers into the moist soil and tried to drag her body toward the river. 

 Leave me alone.

Morgan heard someone skid to a halt next to her. She looked up. He would’ve been a handsome man had he not had that scowl on his face. She couldn’t tell the color of his eyes because of the dark night. He had short blonde hair and smelled like beer and sweat.

“Stupid bitch!” he shouted as he kicked her stomach.

The air escaped her lungs. She took a ragged breath; her chest burned as she inhaled. Morgan would have held her abdomen, but she had enough energy for one thing. She opened her mouth. Her sharp white fangs glinted under the silver moonlight and bit his ankle. He shouted in surprise as he felt her teeth plunge into his skin. Clearly, he hadn’t expected that.

“Get this crazy bitch off me!” More darts were fired. The taste of blood and flesh was still in her mouth. The silver moon and a cool breeze upon her face – those were the last things Morgan remembered as she fell into the darkness.
