Hey, friends! I am super jazzed to be showcasing a new release in a series I positively love! Judi Lynn is a good friend and a USA Today Bestselling Author. I love her Jazzi Zanders cozy mystery series, but I’m also thoroughly gone on her urban fantasy series set in Muddy River. I’m particularly drawn to the extraordinary mix of supernaturals in these books. I asked Judi to drop by and give us some background. Please give her a warm welcome, and get ready to one-click. Every release in this series garnered five star reviews from me and Bounty Hunted is no exception.
My wonderful blogging friend, Mae Clair, invited me to her page today to let me promote my newest Muddy River short read, BOUNTY HUNTED. Thank you, Mae! I not only value Mae as a friend but I admire her writing, so I’m thrilled to be here.
Muddy River is located in southwest Indiana, near the banks of the Ohio River. And NO MORTALS ARE ALLOWED. Supernaturals have learned the hard way that when mortals fear something, anything, they’re dangerous. Many Muddy River residents traveled from the east coast to Indiana to escape the witch hunts, vampire hunts, and various other supernatural hunts that plagued Salem and other settlements.
Hester Wand, the high priestess of Muddy River’s coven, lost everyone in her family to the witch trials in Salem. Raven Black, a fire demon, left his home when the first signs of trouble started in his area. Derek Fang, a vampire, fled New York, but he ran to get away from his jealous succubus lover, Allure. Everyone who came to Muddy River came to find a safe haven, so they decided to work together to protect themselves.
Hester and her coven bespelled wards that no enemies could pass and planted them around the entire area. The Fae cast an illusion spell so that mortals couldn’t see Muddy River. And as they all settled in the town and found jobs, they learned to like each other. So much so, that they mated between their original species. Derek, who opened a bar in town, mated with Prim Tallow, a Fae, and they adopted a young girl, who’s a witch. A young half-vampire/half-Siren developed a crush on Cein, part Phoenix. Lir, a Druid, fell in love with Birch, a young witch who graduated from Hester’s school of magic. And Deputy Sheriff Brown, a shifter, mated one of the members of Hester’s coven. It’s rare to find a pure blood anywhere in the area.
They all believe that Muddy River’s safe until a bounty hunter comes to town to capture Derek and take him back to Allure, who’s finally found him again and wants him back. What no one considered is that bounty hunters are only doing a job. The wards don’t consider them true enemies, so they don’t block them. But everyone in town makes it clear that Muddy River takes care of its own. If someone attacks ONE of them, they attack ALL of them. Allure won’t back down, though, so a battle is inevitable. And this time, Hester and Raven decide to take the battle to her in New York. The odds against them are horrible. But if they let Allure intimidate them, who’s next?
Hester and Raven won’t have to battle alone. Allure might have an army, but they have friends. Some of Muddy River’s most powerful supernaturals volunteer to go with them. And they have a plan.
Before I leave, I want to thank Mae one last time for sharing her blog with me. And thanks to everyone who stuck around to visit with me.
