Please join me in welcoming Susanne Leist with her newest book, The Dead at Heart.

THE DEAD AT HEART – BOOK THREE OF THE DEAD GAME SERIES

I am proud of my third book. It is the culmination of The Dead Game Series. In the first two books, Linda served as the protagonist, while this book gives Shana a chance to tell her story. In book two, Prey for The Dead, she pleaded for a vampire’s life. Shana fell in love with William at first sight. Now, Shana is having second thoughts about whether she can find happiness in a vampire’s arms.

William’s bite bonded Shana to him, but he didn’t ask her to mate with him for life. She isn’t ready for a lifetime commitment. Now, William excludes her from his vampire meetings. Shana understands he’s an original vampire with immense powers. For them to be a couple, he has to treat as an equal partner. If William doesn’t respect her, then what are their chances of finding happiness?

Shana speaks to Linda, her best friend, of her fears.

“Paradise is an illusion.” Shana’s face grows heated as her frustration mounts. “Oasis is a haven for vampires. I’m tired of their battles. The Watchers get rid of an evil group of vamps, and another group arrives and attacks. It’s a vicious cycle. Vampires are trouble.”

“We will have a happy ending.” Linda lifts her head. “Don’t lose faith. The Watchers will protect us, and Gregg has an elite force of original vampires.” She touches Shana’s arm. “William loves you; he won’t let something happen to you.”

“The vampires keep secrets from us.” Shana swallows the lump in her throat. “I don’t want to live with vamps anymore, and I need time to decide on my relationship with William. One minute, I’m suffocating, and then the next, I’m lost without him.”

As a new enemy descends on Oasis, Florida, Shana turns to Sheriff Sam, who broke her heart. Can she trust the human-vampire?

This begins Shana’s journey to fight vampires and werewolves with Sam at her side.

An explosion at Chateau Frontenac in Quebec doesn’t stop Shana and her friends from saving their town, and maybe even the world.

AUTHOR BIO:

I have always loved to read. Agatha Christie, Alistair Maclean, Robert Ludlum, and other authors filled my young imagination with intrigue and mystery. When I wasn’t reading late into the night, the TV shows such as Murder She Wrote and Columbo, entertained me with murder and suspense tales.

Over the years, my taste in TV expanded to include such shows as Supernatural and The Originals. I searched for paranormal, murder mysteries, but found few at the library or bookstore. So, I wrote one.

The Dead Game, Book One of The Dead Game series, brings fantasy and surrealism to the classic murder mystery with dead bodies, suspects, and clues. It offers vampires, vampire derivatives, and a touch of romance to spice the motley mix.

The story continues in Book Two, Prey for The Dead, as The Dead vampires use an exclusive club in Disney World to infiltrate the rich and famous. As The Dead grow in power, not even the bright sunshine of Florida can weaken them. Linda and her friends join forces with human vampires–known as hybrids–to defeat the evil threatening to control Oasis. A masquerade ball and a romp through the tunnels beneath the town lead to a showdown in southern Florida’s swamps.

The Dead At Heart is Shana’s love story. Will her love for William strengthen, or will Sam lead her on a different path? At Chateau Frontenac in Quebec, Shana and her fearless friends fight for Oasis and their lives.

A career in writing has been a giant leap for me. Accustomed to the number-crunching field of budgeting and the hectic commodity markets, I left my first career and M.B.A. in Finance behind to pursue my dream. I do not regret my foray into literature for one moment. Fellow authors helped me make my way through the competitive field. I write every day and even tried my hand at poetry. If someone tells you it’s too late in life to try something different, they are wrong. It is never too late to follow your heart.

A PERFECT OASIS

A perfect oasis on the shore.
You could not ask for anything more.
Sun and surf during the day,
But at night there’s hell to pay.
The waves welcome daily swimmers,
But at night there are no winners.
Afraid to venture out after dark,
Residents stay clear of the town park.
One night, a hanging party was had
By the dark creatures who are plain bad.
Our town is plagued by darkness and woe.
We don’t even know who is our foe.

TRAPPED IN HELL AS THEY RING THE DINNER BELL

Trapped in the walls
The padlocks seal the front gate.
We must escape our dark fate.
As the doors and windows close,
there’s still no sign of our foes.
Once we are trapped in hell,
they ring the dinner bell.

LOVE HURTS

Roses with thorns

 

 

I want to taste your sweet nectar

and lose myself in your fragrance.

Your blood will be mine

as I pluck you from the vine.

TO HELL AND BACK

1 howls

 

Death walks the street
to its own crazy heartbeat.
Do we allow it to run free
and take victims at whim?
We won’t permit more to
succumb to its darkness.
We will fight the demons
to hell and back.

LOVE IS IN THE AIR

1 love is in the air

 

I wait for him
until the moon rises,
and the stars fill the sky.
He’ll come for me, I know.

FROZEN BRIDE

The Dead are coming to this place.
The moon trembles and bows its face.
Thunder strikes a chord in the distance.
No one can mount a strong resistance.
Lightning sizzles and dances in place.
Soon red and yellow streaks join the race.
The Dead return...

 

 

The Dead are coming to this place.

The moon trembles and bows its face.

Thunder strikes a chord in the distance.

No one can mount a strong resistance.

 

Lightning sizzles and dances in place.

Soon red and yellow streaks join the race.

The Dead return in force

As Wolf rides a black horse.

 

He leads his army to town

while he wears a wicked frown.

I know he’s searching for me.

Quiet as a mouse I’ll be.

 

But soon he’ll find my hiding place,

Blaring trumpets quicken his pace.

Time has come to a complete stop.

He stares at me from bottom to top.

 

He wants me for his frozen bride.

Too late for me to run or hide.

He takes me into his arms for a kiss,

But what I want to do is yell and hiss.

 

I don’t want to be one of The Dead.

I walk behind him with growing dread.

The battle lines have been drawn,

And I’m merely Wolf’s small pawn.

MY FIRST KISS

If you dare step inside,
there’ll be nowhere to hide.
A new dimension you’ll cross
on the back of a black horse.
Are you ready for this?
Lean in for my first kiss.
