Spotlight feature (& giveaway) of Stalking the Other by Jess Haines

Stalking the Others

(H&W Investigations #4)

Release day July 3, 2012
Vampires, werewolves, mages–the Others are very real, and wreaking havoc in Shiarra Waynest’s life. But now, she’s returning the favor…Once, she was one of the good guys–or as close as a New York P.I. can get. Then Shiarra Waynest was drawn into the world of the Others. Every faction has its own loyalties and agenda. And Shia’s recent betrayal by her ex-boyfriend means that she may be on the verge of becoming a rogue werewolf at the next full moon.Of course, with all the threats against her, Shia’s not sure she’ll live long enough to find out. The enigmatic vampire Royce wants her back in his clutches, as do two powerful werewolf packs, along with the police. Instead of going into hiding, Shia is enlisting the aid of her enchanted hunter’s belt and every dirty P.I. trick she knows. If she’s going down, she’ll take out as many of her enemies as she can–and hope that in the process, she keeps whatever humanity she has left

Excerpt:

“Shiarra, I didn’t think I’d ever see you again.  Not in daylight.”

I forced a thin smile.  “No need to worry about that. I’m not planning on turning into a walking corpse anytime soon.”  No, I just might turn into something else. Something worse.

“Why are you here?”

“I’m here to ask for your help.  There isn’t an easy way for me to say this, and I’m too tired for tact.  There’s a chance I might become a Were at the next full moon.”

Nikki stared.  Jack said nothing, a tic starting in his cheek.

“I came here because someone from my ex’s pack might have infected me.  I want to find him.  I want to make him and the rest of the Sunstrikers pay.”  I left out the part about what Chaz had done.  He might have been the alpha of the Sunstriker pack, but he was a poor decision maker, and I wanted cheating on me to be the last mistake he ever made.  “There are people after me, including police.  If I do turn into one of… into an Other at the end of the month, I know I can trust you to end it.  Until then, I need a place to stay, and someone to work with me to find where the Weres are hiding.  Will you help me?”

Nikki’s wide-eyed stare grew into a rather unbecoming gawp that made me want to walk over to shut her mouth, if only my feet didn’t hurt so much.

For his part, Jack wasn’t showing any emotion.  His only reaction was to lift one hand to rub at the pale stubble on his jaw.  I think it’s the first time I’d ever seen him anything but clean-shaven.

He edged around Nikki and rested both palms flat on the display case as he loomed over it.  The intensity of his gaze was a bit much, and I found I couldn’t meet his eyes directly as he examined me.

“You realize what you’re asking?  You know what we’ll do if you turn?”

That question gave me enough courage to meet his eyes again.  “Yes, I know.  I’m counting on it.”

His smile, white and shark-like, sent a shiver down my spine.  “Welcome to the White Hats.”

    I’ve read all three of the other books, I got them from the library… which is funny since I usually get a bunch of books every month from Jess’s publishers. LOL

    I’d love to win copies of the series to add to my burgeoning home library.

    I have read book one and two and really enjoyed them. It is definitely time to revisit the series and continue on. I am one who enjoys rereading a good series over and over again and H&W Investigations certainly falls in that category :)
