Publisher: Amber Allure (Amber Quill)

 

Genre: Action/Adventure, Fantasy, Gay Fiction, M/M Romance, Mystery, Paranormal, Thriller

Blurb:

Although they’ve been labeled as a group of misfits, Minneapolis’ 77th police precinct has plenty of talent.  The problem is, it’s paranormal talent and no one’s supposed to know about it.

Nick keeps his officers busy chasing after all the creepy crawly things that tend to go “bump” in the night, thus insuring the twin cities are safe and totally unaware that other realms even exist. Nick is the Door Keeper and his job as the precinct’s captain is to maintain order in what would otherwise be chaos.

When said chaos rears its ugly head in the form of a ferocious and brutal vampire, the last thing Nick needs is to deal with a new partner, even if that new partner is as sexy as Arrain.

The Door Keeper Soundtrack

“21 guns” by Green Day, is actually rather a tragic song but the beat and the music seems uplifting to me, anticipatory, if that makes any sense. Maybe even triumphant. I love this song. I normally do not listen to music or anything else when I write but certain songs can remind me of either a setting in my books or a character. Many times I will listen to that song over and over and sometimes think I may have actually written it because of the song. Of course it isn’t true. Like the song “Sink or Swim” by Tyrone Wells https://youtu.be/h2CYs-jK9sY if you have read my book The Superior Jewel you would swear this is MC Ryan singing this to Jansen. But, for me, the book came first.

With this song, “21 guns” by Green Day, I think it fits Nick’s mood when he comes to the Twin Cities. He has had heart break of huge proportions and I think he has become cynical and distrustful of any sentient being and is really fighting to find something to live for. It doesn’t have to be the love of a mate. Just something worth dying for.

Do you know what’s worth fighting for,
When it’s not worth dying for?
Does it take your breath away
And you feel yourself suffocating?
Does the pain weigh out the pride?
And you look for a place to hide?
Did someone break your heart inside?
You’re in ruins

One, twenty one guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, twenty one guns
Throw up your arms into the sky,
You and I

When you’re at the end of the road
And you lost all sense of control
And your thoughts have taken their toll
When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul
Your faith walks on broken glass
And the hangover doesn’t pass
Nothing’s ever built to last
You’re in ruins

One, twenty one guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, twenty one guns
Throw up your arms into the sky,
You and I

Did you try to live on your own
When you burned down the house and home?
Did you stand too close to the fire?
Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone

When it’s time to live and let die
And you can’t get another try
Something inside this heart has died
You’re in ruins

One, twenty one guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, twenty one guns
Throw up your arms into the sky,

One, twenty one guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, twenty one guns
Throw up your arms into the sky,
You and I

Happy smart business man with team mates discussing in the background

About the Author

abstract design with a girl grunge textHurri Cosmo lives in Minnesota where she holds tight to the idea that there, where it’s cold a good part of the year, she won’t age as fast. Yep, she avoids the truth as much as she avoids mirrors. But one of the reasons she loves writing is reality doesn’t always offer up a “happily ever after” and being able to take control of that is a powerful lure. Being a happy ending junkie, writing just makes them easier to find. Oh, she doesn’t mind “real life” and she does try to at least keep it in mind when she writes her stories, but she truly loves creating a wonderful couple, knowing they will fall in love and have their HEA. Every – single – time. And, of course, that is exactly the reason she loves reading this genre, too. Give her a glass of red wine, some dark chocolate, and her computer, whether she is reading or writing, and she will entertain herself for hours. The fact she actually gets paid to do it is Snickers bars on the frosting on the cake.
