Synopsis: Meet Siobhan Quinn—Half vampire, half werewolf, and retired monster hunter. Or so she thought…
Three years have passed since Quinn turned her back on Providence, Rhode Island’s seedy supernatural underbelly, walking out on Mr. B. and taking a bus headed anywhere. She hoped her escape would give her some peace from the endless parade of horrors. But a dead girl who quarrels with the moon can’t catch a break, and, on the streets of Manhattan, Quinn finds herself caught between a rock and a hard place. Again.
What do you do when you’re stuck in the middle of a three-million-year-old grudge match between the ghouls and the djinn, accidentally in possession of a hellish artifact that could turn the tide of the war, all the while being hunted by depraved half-ghoul twins intent on taking the object and ushering in a terrifying Dark Age?
Especially when you’ve fallen in love with the woman who got you into this mess—and you ain’t nobody’s hero…
Review: Quinn is a half-vampire/half-werewolf retired monster hunter. She’s walked away from her old life and is shacked up with a woman who is a CPA by day/sub by night. She meets Selwyn Throckmorton at a BDSM club and is immediately enamored. For a woman who has always been emotionally distant and truly indifferent to romance, always looking for a quick screw not cuddle-time, she’s unwound. Quinn will follow her ladylove into hell and that just may be what it takes to save them both. CHERRY BOMB is the best of the three Quinn books by far, still snarky and breaking the fourth wall, but with an edge so razor sharp every word cuts at your soul. CHERRY BOMB breaks the mold of what paranormal & urban fantasy is today and is viciously memorable. I’ll miss Quinn…
