Hi everyone and welcome to Rainbow Snippets! How’s your April going? I can’t believe we’re on our countdown to the release of Fangs with a Heart (due out May / June 2017, from Dreamspinner Press). Fangs with a Heart is m/m, erotic paranormal romance and it will be available for preorder soon!
We’re picking up directly where we left off last week. Poor Sasha isn’t doing so well right now, and depression isn’t the greatest thing for anyone, but definitely not for a vampire prince. Wonder how long it takes Jalin to find a way to make Sasha smile…?

He was worrying them, those closest to him. Probably some of the others in his coven as well, which wasn’t the best thing to do. If any of his enemies found out about his distraction or morose attitude of late, he would be putting his friends, family, and more in danger. Even that truth failed to stir much within him, though.
“Your worry is duly noted, Jalin. But I can’t fix things how you want me to.”

Lynx shifter Trace Wilson’s fun-loving exterior hides a heart scarred by severe domestic violence—a heart that might not ever trust another male, fated mate or not. When Trace moves to Seattle, WA to take his place as trainer and council representative to the Glacier Rim Tribe, he discovers his mate is the vampire prince Sasha Tolstoi, leader of the Konstantin Coven. It’s not something Trace is ready to accept. Not now, maybe not ever. But if there’s one thing Sasha knows how to do, it’s how to be patient, especially when his fated heart is also his perfect sub.
When an outside force threatens the fragile bond slowly forming between them—and nearly kills Trace—Trace’s instincts shift into high gear. Sasha is powerful, and that means he has enemies, among them several rival covens and an uncle determined to force Sasha into a marriage with a vampire princess. But why involve the lynx Trace in their maneuvering? Finding the culprit won’t be easy, and it will mean building trust—a slow and difficult prospect for someone who’s suffered as much as Trace. Finding a way to move beyond the past, and to love, before those out to finish Sasha can destroy either, is a race the two fated hearts have to win.
