Today we welcome the authors of the upcoming anthology Dark Pursuit. Each author has told us a little about their inspiration for their story in this anthology.
Tempted to Death by Jessica Jarman
Months ago, Tara Wilcox ran away from Luca Castell and Oliver Gordon. She’d fallen hard for the pair of hunters and feared their growing feelings for her. But what truly terrified her was the possibility that they’d discover what she really is. That she’s the very thing they hunted.
Luca and Oliver are partners, in every sense of the word, and their lives are spent running toward danger. Falling for Tara was the biggest risk they’d ever taken, and her vanishing without a word gutted them.
But, she’s back, desperate for their help in hunting a vicious para creature. Despite the risks—to their lives and their hearts—reigniting the love they’d had is simple. But nothing is simple when, faced with an impossible choice, Tara reveals her true nature.
Now that Luca and Oliver know the truth, Tara has another choice to make—run again or trust that their love is strong enough to look beyond the monster she fears they’ll see.
JESSICA — TEMPTED TO DEATH
I don’t know if you’d call it inspiration or not, but the idea of falling in love with a person who is something you’ve spent your life hunting has always been intriguing to me. Tara is a paranormal human, and Luca and Oliver have dedicated their lives to hunting paras. They’ve never had to question whether paras could be good or just not evil that needs to be eliminated.
So for them to fall for a woman who is both hunter and a para… Can they change, can they grow from the shoot-first-maybe-ask-questions-later mode they’ve always been in? That was the idea that sparked this whole story for me.
Bio: Jessica Jarman is an author, blogger and rather obsessive fangirl. Having grown up in Upper Michigan and currently living in Minnesota, she’s a Midwestern girl through and through. And wouldn’t have it any other way.
When Jessica’s not working to get words on the page, she passes the time with her amazing husband and four children, attempting to be crafty (and failing miserably), squeeing uncontrollably over my favorite shows or curling up with a good book.
