The Syndicate

Giveaway Alert!

In the world of The Syndicate, the Syndicate council is made up of the heads of all the paranormal mafia families. They work together with one main goal in mind: Take down The Agency at all costs. Each main paranormal family is represented, but they answer to one person, not man or paranormal creature. Someone entirely different. In a world where paranormal creatures are just coming out into the public’s eye, the Syndicate must handle their business carefully.

Controlling all aspects of mafia business is what the Syndicate council does best. From drug trafficking to gambling and escorts, they’ve got every questionable business in their pockets and at their disposal to aid in their goal of taking down The Agency. With powerful creatures watching over the businesses to make sure the humans don’t intervene and destroy everything they’ve worked for over the years, the Syndicate can manipulate almost every situation to their advantage. Almost.

Double agents, secrets, lies, and love, all threaten what the Syndicate is out to accomplish in the world. Humans trying to push back into the mafia families to take back over control, the Agency trying to infiltrate the territories and frame mafia members for murder and mayhem to keep the Syndicate busy and out of their way, under the guise of protecting the humans. But the Syndicate know the truth and aims to stop the leader of the Agency. In the world of the Syndicate, not everything is what it seems, and everyone must choose where their loyalties lie.

Excerpt: Code Name: Fox, Book One

“Travis is a massive asshole.” She put a hand on his cheek. “You need to feed—“
He didn’t wait for her to finish her sentence. He launched himself toward her and pinned her to the ground. She tried to keep her panic down. She’d never opened a vein for a vampire before, and thanks to his previous threat, she had no idea what to expect.
Zeek nibbled the skin right over her pulse point. “I haven’t completely lost my mind yet. I want to make sure we have no misunderstandings. You want this.”
It wasn’t much of a question, but she believed that if she said no, he’d have the self-control to back off, but she found herself relaxing against him and his words. “Yes.
He chuckled and his hot breath tickled her skin. “I’ve wanted this. You, naked below me, offering your blood. Sadly, I don’t have the time to do this right.” His fangs pierced her skin.
She’d expected pain, but the pain he offered was swift and fading. Heat moved through her body, and she wrapped her fingers in his hair and pressed him harder against her neck. Moisture grew between her legs as he wrapped his arms tightly around her, pressing his body harder against her. A moan drifted out of her throat. She wanted him to take her there. In the cell. With the security cameras.
That thought brought her back to reality. The alarms were silent now. “Zeek.
Hm.” His voice was muffled against her throat.
“We need to go now.”
He slowly pulled away from her and licked her blood off his lips. “Don’t want to give them a show?” He cupped her face and kissed her on the lips gently.
