By Ashlynne Laynne
“Nothing in life is a coincidence.”
Forces are aligning in Shauna Rousseau’s life. A gifted Wiccan warrior and unique true half-blooded vampire, she is fate personified with an incredible destiny to fulfill. The ultimate war between good and evil is brewing, a revolution that will change our world forever.
Sides are being chosen, but Shauna has some unfinished family business. With her siblings and husband by her side, the pregnant newborn travels to Louisiana to shake her family tree. Lies are uncovered that will irrevocably damage the siblings’ lives.
Everyone has a past. It’s time for Shauna Rousseau to face hers.
Excerpt from Blood Bewitched
One look into Ascher’s eyes and Shauna’s simmering blood cooled. She was lost. So grateful to have him in her life. Immersed in a deep, blue ocean and awash in the depth of love she felt for this man she was so proud to call her own. With everything going wrong in their world, this was one of the things that was right. There was no denying the fact that they were made for one another.
“Thank you for the bracelet and—” Shauna gestured her hands to encompass the room colorfully decorated with balloons and fragrant with roses meant to celebrate the day of her birth. “—well, for everything.”
“No, sweetheart. I’m the one who should be thanking you for saving me.” His fingertips slipped along the line of her jaw as he lifted her head to meet his eyes. “Because of you, I’m a whole man…a living, breathing, feeling individual for the first time in my existence. You make me feel so much, Shauna. You brought me outside of myself and showed me the wonders of this world. Because of you, I realize how precious life is…that there is so much to fight for.”
The surrender in his eyes was so at odds with the wild man that had just screwed her into submission, but she loved that about him. He was many things. Human. Vampire. Warrior and worrier. Loving husband and loyal brother. Ascher was her shaded, sexy lover and a protector ready to risk himself to prevent anyone from doing her harm. He was possessive, handsome, and unyielding when it came to her safety. But most of all, he was simply hers. Looking into his eyes was like seeing them for the first time, all the adoration, passion and promise shining from their gorgeous depths.
She had no choice but to whisper, “I love you.”
He cupped her face in his palms. “Forever.” His lips then turned up into the smirk he usually reserved for teasing her. “Thank you for the player, too.”

About The Progeny Series
At its core, The Progeny Series is simply about a man and woman who fall in love. The fact that he’s a half-blood (half-human, half vampire) and she’s a Wiccan human are secondary factors. This series encompasses a family dynamic of which we’ve never seen.
The Rousseaus share a common mortal and immortal bloodline, but loyalty is the thread binding this vampire clan. Shauna and Ascher’s dissuaded love only strengthens the family bonds. Their unique union transcends bloodlines and completes the prophecy, defying the beliefs of centuries old covenants while shattering the wall between the Wiccan and vampire worlds that have existed for ages.
This award-winning series is erotic paranormal romance intended for adults and contains strong sexual content, adult sensuality, language, and themes.
