Please welcome Kate Hill

My favorite thing about Christmas and New Year is the crisp weather. I enjoy sitting by the wood burning stove, watching movies or reading and drinking tea. It's nice to be inside on a cold winter night, especially if there is some snow on the ground when you look out the window. That atmosphere also inspires story ideas, which is another reason I like it.
Bloody or Nothing: Villain Tamed
by Kate Hill
For centuries Lao has battled humankind and in doing so has made many enemies. Injured while fighting the dreaded new reign, he asks for refuge from Sudsy Waters.
The last thing Lao wants is to fall in love with a human, but when he meets Tyler, the doctor at Blood or Nothing, a love ignites that will burn all barriers Lao has built around his heart.
In the final battle with the Evil Master, the future of the world depends on Lao, but can love redeem the man feared almost as much as the devil?
Lao lifted his gaze to Tyler and remained still, his expression unreadable. The doctor trailed his fingertips down his cheek and brushed a lock of long black hair behind Lao's ear. He lightly traced a thin yet jagged scar that ran from the bottom of Lao's ear almost to his chin. It was the only scar on the vampire's exotic face.
"Where did you get this?" Tyler asked, referring to the scar.
"Trusting a human."
Tyler snorted. "As if you ever trusted a human."
"I've had my moments."
Dropping his hand, Tyler said, "I suppose if you got scarred for it, that didn't give you much incentive to keep trusting us."
Lao didn't reply and Tyler tried to guess what the ancient felt, but it was impossible. Those black eyes studied him with a detached and keenly intelligent look.
"Is it true what they say about you?" Tyler continued.
"They say a lot of things. Which rumor are you referring to?"
"That you don't Change blood children out of love."
"I've been called worse."
"And have no doubt deserved it." Lao rose, but Tyler didn't back away to give him room. They stood so close their chests almost touched. Tyler's calm blue eyes stared into his and he moistened those beautiful lips with the tip of his enticing pink tongue.
Remembering the kisses they'd shared, Lao wanted to taste him again.
Accustomed to taking what he wanted, Lao cupped the back of Tyler's strong neck and covered his mouth in a demanding kiss. The doctor's scent filled him and he heard the mortal's heart beat faster. Tyler's eyes closed and he stepped nearer. Had Lao been human, Tyler might have knocked him onto the bed.
