I’m with You
Copyright © 2013 by Glenna Maynard
 New Adult College Romance intended for mature audiences, this is unedited and subject to change in the final release.
Today was one mind trip. This morning when I woke I planned on it being my last day. And now I am entered into a twisted deal with a stranger. But what a handsome stranger he is, but I shouldn’t be thinking thoughts like these when Harlan is waiting for me. I know where I need to go. I slip my chucks on and grab my umbrella. I make the three block walk to the town cemetery. Harlan is buried here somewhere, I haven’t been here before but I need to talk to him. I don’t trust myself at the falls.
I walk through the rows of the dead and I am slightly thankful that I’m not here, well not yet anyways. His grave is easy to spot, it is the one adorned in fresh flowers. There is a picture of him in his football jersey etched on the headstone. I trace my fingers over the letters of his name. Harlan Jones Rivers, born July 19, 1992, died August 12, 2012. I lay my head down on his grassy knoll.
“Damn you Harlan, why did you have to listen to me? I just need to you to tell me its okay. I’m sorry; I really want to be with you- I do. But something has happened. I met a boy today and for the first time since you left, he made me feel alive.” I squeeze my fingers against my temple willing him to answer me. “What do I do Harlan, I miss you, and I wanted so badly for us to be reunited, but now I made a deal with this boy. His name is Cutter, he wants me to make a list of everything I want to do before I die. He said if I completed my list in a years time that then he would let me do what I set out to do today. Talk to me Harlan.” I pound my fist against the ground. Why won’t he answer me, he calls to me all of the time? “Did you give up on me Harlan? Are you angry with me? I saw you watching me with him. Why were you there, what do you want from me?”
I feel a firm hand on my back. “I had a feeling you’d be here. Your Gram called me and said you canceled dinner on her yesterday, she is worried about you. I know this day is hard for you. How long have you been off of your medication?” Of course Gram called Dr. Peters, I sigh and get up from the dirt and grass.  I brush the grass from my dampened knees but it is of no use
“I take it daily.”
“Bella you don’t fool me. How long have you been hearing Harlan speaking to you?” When I don’t answer he continues speaking. “I don’t want to take you in, I know classes start soon. I want to see you succeed, but you have to take your medication Bella. It isn’t negotiable. Have you been having the hallucinations again?”
There isn’t much point in lying to him. “Alright you caught me, I have been off my meds for two months, and I feel fine. I’m not crazy Doc, I just miss him. Is it so wrong that I want to hear his voice so much that it hurts? There is an ache in my chest for him. It is like a tumor growing stronger and wider. It spreads through my veins like poison. Is that descriptive enough for you? There do I feel enough for you, go write that down in your notebook for your file on me. Do you know how much it hurts? To ache so deep that the darkness consumes you and fills you with a black poison. A poison that has embedded itself so far into my heart that I have to bleed it out, to make it stop. Some days I want to pray to God to make the pain stop, to take me from this hell on earth that is my life. But I gave up on him answering my prayers long ago. Besides I deserve to ache, to suffer, to wallow in my misery.”
“That’s the most honest you have been since you started coming to see me. I think you are making progress, but I want you to promise me that you will go home and take your medication. Do not make me regret not taking you in. As your care provider it is my responsibility to look after you.”
“I get it Doc don’t worry. I promise, I will take my meds.”
              “You better, this is your one get out of jail free card.”

Sanguis City Blog Tour


**For Mature Audiences Only**
Ever wonder what happens after the world ends?
Lilanoir Rue did. A mere by product of the destruction, she never knew what
happened before hand either. Banished from the only place she called home,
the Human Reservation, she wipes her tears and never looks back.
In a world gone dead, life has never been so good, for some. While others
live in chaos, the chosen call Sanguis City home. The rich and powerful
found a way to survive The End and enjoy every minute of it, for eternity.
On the brink of a gruesome death from starvation, disease or a hungry
mutant, humans flock to sell their blood for peace.
The city of blood, made for and by vampires, welcomes Noir; her kind are in
high demand. Neither Human nor Vampire, Bleeders take care of the city in
the daylight. Draining humans by day and dating Vampires at night leaves
Noir little time to think about her past, or much else, until it finds her.
Three years in the city has earned her a promising career, future and just
maybe a love life. Noir’s chaotic life is finally on the right track. When
Noir falls for her sexy new Professor, an Authentic Vampire she also falls
into a web of nightmares. Unable to escape painful memories, she uncovers
more than her own secrets. Some secrets just won’t stay dead, and others are
bound to kill her.


My 5 Fangfuckintastic Star Review 
Wow, sexy vampires galore! There is so much about this book that I loved, I don't even know where to start with this review. Holy hottness there are so many sexy men in this book! Who to choose, who's my favorite? There was something I loved about each character, so it is so so hard (pun intended) to choose just one. The sex in this book was fangfuckingtastic. And yeah I said fang, because the vampire sex has left me with a feeling of whoa! Move over Sookie Stackhouse and Eric Northman, and the rest of the True Blood gang. There is a new vampire series in town and I am getting on the bus to Sanguis City! This is a must read! This book releases soon and trust me when I say you don't want to miss it!
In the Sanguis City prequels I was introduced to Noir and her life before Sanguis City. Sanguis City takes place three years later and Noir has adjusted to the new life in a new city. But there is much that she has yet to discover in her three years. Did she pursue a relationship with Tombs? Did she ever find Crow, is he dead? What is the deal with Sander? These are questions that are answered and so much more. No I am not telling you, I don't want to be a spoil sport. So much happens in this book that has left me eagerly awaiting what Noir will face in the next book. And which hot piece of vampire will she be with???
Now getting back to sexy town. The men of Sanguis City Tombs, Aubrey, Sander, Quixon! And a few others. I know who my favorites are but I can't give it all away you will have to read to find out!
