In Vampire Princess of New York, one of the suitors for Princess Noblesse’s hand has a heroic nature. Donovan is only human but this Harley riding Cajun is also the father of two vampire daughters Laura and Evelyn. So he knows what he’s getting into. He loves Noblesse fiercely but when she is safe and a friend is not, he has to be part of that rescue team even if it costs him his life. When the Arnhem Society in Manhattan explodes, Lily Snow, the librarian is trapped with little time and air at a premium.
The blog hop limits the excerpt to seven words, sentences, or paragraphs. I give you part of the rescue scene. They have to go through a tunnel and an antique stairway. With everything broken it’s touch and go what will fall and crush them. Laura can create an electric arc with her hands, a light so to speak. But time is against them. There is nothing like a hero who puts the lives of others ahead of his own.
The large man put his hands together. Donovan put his foot into them, bracing himself for the shove up into the small opening. He grabbed a stair and pulled himself into the space and began the crawl up.
He didn’t need to see her to feel Laura behind him. Donovan went up the stairs as fast as he could. David was behind Laura. He couldn’t stand with the mechanism being stuck. It didn’t clear enough head room. He pushed on further.
“Lily, it’s Donovan. We are almost to you.”
Laura held up her hand, and he could see the steps instead of feel for them.
“Donovan,” came back a whisper. “I’m in the dark.”
“Don’t worry, Lily. Laura and David are right behind me. We’re getting you out.”
“I hurt my leg. I can’t feel it. It’s stuck.”
