Welcome to the second to last day of March. Wow, where has time gone?
For me, each new month brings me closer to the release of Mated in Treason, Book 1 in the Kan Asma Vampires series.
This new vampire romance is coming out in June, 2017 and I thought it would be fun to introduce you to a few of the characters. Today, is all about the hero.
Meet Gunnar Nakani:
The first time we meet Gunnar is in Bound By Obsession the third book in the Blood-Vine series. Bethany who is the heroine of that book, gives her impression of Gunnar.
Before long, the car pulled to a stop and Gunnar opened the door. Bethany hadn't been able to form any solid conclusions about the guy. A few times he stood with his shoulders tossed back, like a marine. The close shave of his light blond hair added to the distinctiveness of a soldier. He wore dark olive utility pants and a matching green T-shirt. She could imagine him in some special-ops corps. He never stopped looking around them. The way his dark eyes flitted from one side to the other showed his attention was focused on their safety. Or, her safety, really.
After she has a few moments to talk with him about one of the Council Sentinels, she realizes there's much more to him than her first impression:
The valet ran a hand over his flattop, and tapped curved knuckles at his temple. "He's short a few brain cells that are imperative for common sense. Little prick spends more time worrying if his silk shirt matches a certain haute couture watch. Who gives a fuck if it's Seiko, Casio, or a flipping Rolex. It tells the time, end of subject."
Tray grinned. "I'll remember that at Christmas."
Bethany tried not to laugh, but hearing Tray shoot-the-shit with his valet gave her a glimpse of another side of him. "Don't worry I'll make sure he gets you something nice."
Gunnar turned to her and the lines at the side of his eyes crinkled as he smiled. "That'd be real nice, Miss Miles. Komar here has a hankering for gift cards. In an envelope, mind you."
At the end of Bound By Obsession, Gunnar finds himself in a really dangerous situation. And, that's where Mated in Treason begins.
Here are a few things about Gunnar:
His boss, Traian Komar, is one of the princes in the Kan Asma aristocracy called the kraliyet. Gunnar started working for him as a valet back in the 18th century. That role has grown through the years and now Gunnar works as Tray's right hand man.
He is half Viking and half Turkish as well as a full-blooded Kan Asma Vampire.
He wears his hair in a flat-top which is not typical of the males in the Kan Asma society.
He has a sexy tattoo on his shoulder.
His special vampire talent is revealed in Mated in Treason.
He has a wicked sense of humor.
He loves the SyFy Channel.
All my vampire heroes pick a special endearment for the mate and Gunnar's is a very cool Viking word.
Well, there's a quick glimpse of the hero of Mated in Treason.
Next month, I will post about his heroine, Nurse Nadia.
Thanks for stopping by today.
