Book Description:
The Spring Equinox brings a slew of nasties to the streets of Nashville. Huntress Josie Hawk is determined to get her arch enemy to sign a treaty, whether the Assembly is behind her or not. But when Keller O’Leary–sexiest vampire alive–returns, will Josie learn to be a team player, or will she stake the heart that has captured hers?


Sherri’s Review:
This novella may be only 39 pages but it packs a punch and doesn’t disappoint.  We met Josie and Keller in Alabaster Nights and we pick up with their story shorty after that book concludes.

Josie is humorous and stubborn and her struggle to distance herself from the charming Irishman is the highlight of Crimson Beat for me.  The interplay between the characters is witty and sarcastic and their sexual chemistry explosive.  Keller returns to town to broker an alliance, during the Ostara , “the Spring Equinox, which is a time when light equals dark it tends to wreak havoc on the world.  Josie is torn as she suspects Keller is hiding something (along with her bestie Sage) and feeling betrayed, Josie does what she does best; take action to prove herself.

I love Josie’s character because she is witty, gutsy, strong and a bit vulnerable. She must confront and accept her vulnerability and her need to trust someone (i.e. Keller) in the stunning conclusion.  Josie and Keller are a well matched couple and we get to see them happy, for now, at the story’s end.

Josie Hawk Chronicles

About Elle J Rossi

Elle J Rossi grew up in rural Indiana surrounded by great people, a huge family and more animals than she could count. But the sites and sounds of the world beckoned, so she left her small town to escape into a creative world full of music. As a full time singer she was able to lose herself in a thousand different songs in a hundred different places. After meeting the love of her life and settling down, she yearned to find a new and fulfilling creative outlet. Overly fond of the happily ever after, she wondered what it would be like to have her own characters lead her down dark and twisted paths. The very first word on the very first page sealed her fate. She’d found a new love. She’d found her escape. Now along with weaving haunting tales about the journey to love, she’s creating cover art for authors around the world and loving every second of it. For fun, she cranks country music to take her back to her roots, and sings karaoke anytime she gets a chance. Her husband, two children, and a cat that rules the roost keep her company along the way and guarantee she doesn’t get lost in the enchanted forest. She wouldn’t have it any other way.
