Series Spotlight and excerpt: Declan by Rae Rivers (Book 2 in The Keepers series)

On the blog today, I’m spotlighting South African romance novelist, Rae Rivers.

Rae, who is published by HarperImpulse, has written two books in a paranormal fantasy series called The Keepers so far.

In this series we’re introduced to all manner of witchy, magical things where the book world focuses on powerful women who are witches and keepers, the men who are bound by blood to protect them.

Aside from that, she’s also written a contemporary romance novel,  Cat Got Your Tongue? , which you can read more about over here.

HarperImpulse have also published Sienna,  a prequel to the Keepers series, which you can download free from Amazon.

To add Sienna and the first book, Archer to your TBR list, head on over to Goodreads. In the meantime, you can find information about Declan, book 2 in the series, along with an excerpt from the book. 

About Declan:
“You lied to me, misled me, attacked me,” Declan murmured, dipping his head toward hers, “but what we had three months ago wasn’t fake, was it?” 

 Kate's gaze faltered to his lips, heat pulsing between them. But she didn’t deny it.  

Declan Bennett has zero tolerance for thieves. He and his brothers, the Keepers, are fiercely protective of their witch, Sienna, and their privacy.   

So when Kate Carrigan breaks into their estate, he'll be damned if he lets the little wildcat get away with it – especially after she seduced him three months ago, leaving him buck-naked in a New Orleans hotel.

Declan wants payback – and some answers.  

Before she was murdered, Kate's mother ingrained it in her not to trust anyone.  Kate’s magical powers make her a pawn in the war between good and evil, a war she’s always avoided. 

Declan is everything she’s been taught to fear, even if she can’t forget the memory of his touch that one night… 

Trouble is brewing as the powers of evil regroup - bolder and hungrier than ever - and Kate is forced to choose a side.   Hot romance, epic battles and action abound in Book 2 of The Keepers.

Read an excerpt below:

“You have two options, Catwoman.” Declan turned his eyes back to her. Although it was dark, she knew their colour. She’d never been able to shrug off the memory of those expressive blue eyes that sparked with intensity and mischief.

“And I’m busting at the seams to hear them.”

“Option one is where you surrender and explain why you’re here.”

“Not appealing. And two?”

Declan waved a hand at the door. “Or you can run.”

Kate narrowed her eyes. Not quite what she’d been expecting to hear. Although his tone was easy, he dripped with challenge.

But she couldn’t leave without the daggers.

“And you’ll be after me in a flash,” she said.

“Take it or leave it.”

Apparently, his love of mischief still thrived, the trait that had drawn her to him before – along with the fact that she’d marked him from the start.

They’d met in a New Orleans bar, where they’d shared flirty comments and copious shots of whiskey.

Then, she’d had the upper hand. She’d had a plan – which might have taken a detour thanks to the alcohol and his charm – but she’d retrieved what she’d needed and run. This was entirely different.

“We both know you won’t let me leave, so why the facade?” she asked.

“Call it curiosity. I’m impressed. And tonight I’m in need of a distraction.” A slow smile softened his features. “Besides, I like a good chase like the rest of them.”

“So what is this then, cat and mouse?”

“Call it what you like. It could be fun.”

“Sure, if you’re the cat.”

“Lucky for me that I’m no mouse.”

Check out the covers for the rest of the series:
