SANTINO THE ETERNAL BY SAM JD HUNT
Santino the Eternal is live!
Sam JD Hunt, the author of Taken by Two, has stepped into the murky world of the paranormal. Her deliciously twisted mind has created Santino the Eternal, the first in her read-in-any-order romance series about modern vampires living and loving under the glitzy neon lights of Las Vegas.
Santino the Eternal has never craved the forbidden – until now. As a blood-thirsty serial killer hunts the glitzy streets of Las Vegas, Santino collides with a young college student – can she make it out alive?
Clara Denton’s life is flung into chaos when she discovers a drained corpse in a posh hotel room on the Strip. And as if her life wasn’t already spiraling out of control, her reclusive boss has taken a disconcerting interest in her. Unable to resist the dark pull, she is drawn further and further into the murky world of the undead – as well as just the dead, too. When the handsome Matthew Hunter arrives with his sights set on Clara, she is thrown into one final eternal struggle of good versus evil.
Can love truly be eternal?
Clara ran her palms across his strong chest, pausing to feel his heart beat as they kissed. “See I do have heart,” he whispered in her ear.
“May I?” he asked, pulling her t-shirt over her head. He needed to see her neck.
He loved her delicateness—the simple lines of her collarbone, of her small breasts cradled in the simple cotton bra, but most of all, of her neck. Clara’s neck drove him to delirium—it was long, and her pale skin showed every vein; every vein that carried her sweet blood so close to the surface of her skin.
“You are beautiful,” he said as his lips skimmed across her neck, pausing to nibble her earlobe, and then back down, across the thumping artery, and down to her collarbone. He paused to smell her—beyond the faint hint of some cheap bodywash, she smelled warmly human. Santino, even during this short time, had grown to love the smell of Clara.
His tongue went lower, toying with the swelling flesh heaving over her small bra. He stopped her. “Please darling, let me unwrap you. We’ll never have a first time again.”
Sam J.D. Hunt resides in Las Vegas with her husband, the inspiration for the young Thomas Hunt character, as well as her two children. Her debut trilogy, The Thomas Hunt Series, put a fun and unique spin on the popular BDSM genre. She followed up with the highly successful DEEP: A Captive Tale–a dark BDSM erotic captor/captive story about a pirate and his lady that spans time and space. Her fourth novel, the full-length standalone The Hunt for Eros is an erotic art adventure that combines spicy romance with a cultural adventure based on true life events. It has been described as being like The Da Vinci Code, but with lots of heat added.
Hunt’s next release was co-written with her husband. Dagger: American Fighter Pilot is a steamy contemporary romance, which follows a squadron of fighter pilots as part of the American Fighter Pilot read-in-any-order series. Following the release of Dagger, Hunt released the much-anticipated MMF/Bi/Ménage erotic adventure, Taken by Two and then its sequel, Torn from Two. Hunt then released DEEPER: Capture of the Virgin Bride as a follow-up to DEEP. Now Santino the Eternal, her first paranormal story and the first book of the eternals series about vampires who live in Las Vegas has been released, she plans to continue the series with Nicco but who knows what her creative mind will come up with next. When not writing, Hunt enjoys travel, community involvement, spending time with friends and family, and hiking. She spends her days writing and trying to answer the age-old question: is it too late for coffee or too early for wine?
