Maya DeLeina


The room loomed in pitch-blackness.


“Close the door and lock it behind you,” he answered.

“Are we alone?”

“Don’t be afraid. Close the door.”

“I’m not afraid. I- I just want to be prepared for what is about to happen.”

“Close the door and everything you’ve wished to know will be answered.”

She closed the door and locked it as he’d instructed.

Seconds later a star-filled sky illuminated above and packed the room with trace lighting. The electricity hummed in a high-pitch, like a soprano. The reverberation saturated her body, creating the faint hairs on her arms and the back of her neck to stand at attention.

And there, in the middle of the room, stood Grayson.

He was sleek, yet tantalizing rough. He wore a black, form-fitting dress shirt that tucked into pleated slacks. It showcased his physique like a gilded framed piece of art.

Noel Tierney thought she’d have enough time before the predicted storm to make it to her holiday retreat, but the snow hit sooner than expected. Caught unprepared on a treacherous pass, poor visibility and icy conditions lead to a crash. She lay immobile in her vehicle, stranded in a ditch in the most remote leg of her journey.

A faceless hero comes to her rescue and Noel has no choice but to wait out the blizzard in her rescuer’s unique cabin nestled in the woods. Everything about Grayson James peaks her curiosity—his valor, air of mystery and most of all, undeniable attractiveness.

For three days and nights, passions are unleashed and unexpected emotions are brought to life. When the storm breaks, Grayson vanishes into thin air, but not before revealing startling news that leaves her questioning her sanity.

Fast forward years later and Noel is in the southernmost part of the United States. She’d come seeking solace after her husband’s tragic death, but what finds her in Key West is more than she ever anticipated.

In the sultry summer, her unbridled winter’s ecstasy resurrects.

And so does the Vampire.

Barnes and Noble-

Multi-published author Maya DeLeina was born and raised on the beautiful and romantic beaches of Oahu, Hawaii. Relocating to Colorado, Maya's crystal blue oceans and powdery white sands were traded for enchanting forests, mystic mountains and golden plains of promise.

Living just on the outskirts of Manitou Springs, the town's history of spiritual healing, eclectic flare, fabled underground tunnels and rumored lore of wizardry and witchcraft rekindled Maya's love for the paranormal, metaphysical and most of all, vampires.

One bite and she was hooked.

With a hint of incense lofting in the air and the majestic Pikes Peak sitting in picture perfect view from her windows, Maya can be found relaxing in the recesses of her comfy couch, sinking her teeth into crafting and weaving seducing and erotic tales of vampires that may or may not roam her beloved town.

One read and you'll be hooked!
