Celebrating Rebecca Royce's New Vampire Thriller

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating the release of a new vampire thriller from Decadent Publishing and Rebecca Royce.

As a teenager, Rebecca Royce would hide in her room to read her favorite romance novels when she was supposed to be doing her homework. She hopes, these days, that her parents think it was well worth it.

Rebecca is the mother of three adorable boys and is fortunate to be married to her best friend. They live in northern New Jersey and try not to freeze too badly during the winter months.

She's in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the pararnormal and tries to use all of these elements in her writing. She's been told she's a little bloodthirsty so she hopes that when you read her work you'll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. Rebecca loves to write series because she loves to see characters develop over time and it always makes her happy to see her favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.

In Rebecca Royce's world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.

ANOTHER CHANCE by Rebecca Royce

Patrick O'Callaghan is a vampire grappling with the fate that has been laid out for him. Turned into a vampire during World War II, he lived for many years as a crazed monster searching only for blood and dishing out death. That is until he is approached to join a unique unit of the United States military, a special operations division made up of vampires looking for a second chance, for a way to redeem the horrors they have caused by serving God and Country. The only catch? He had to give up human blood.

Jennifer DeMarco is a hard-nosed reporter and the daughter of an Admiral in the United States Navy. When she goes missing, kidnapped by terrorists she hoped to interview, Patrick's unit is sent out to rescue her and then remove her memory of the events, making it like they never happened.

Things go awry when Patrick responds sexually to Jennifer, something that hasn't happened since he was made a vampire. New truths are unveiled to Patrick-things he never thought he either could or should have as a creature of the undead, and Jennifer's life continues to be in danger.

When disaster strikes, the two will discover that there are second chances if only you're willing to take them.

  7. Hello Rebecca!
    This book has so many of my favorite things wrapped up into one story! I love vampires, hot special ops guys and damsels in distress. I can't wait to see if all of the vampire soldiers are able to give up human blood. Everyone deserves a second chance, even vampires. Great idea for a story.

  10. Congratulations on the new release Rebecca! This sounds like a really interesting book to read. I'm curious as to what Patrick has to drink if he's had to give up human blood? Did you create a blood substitute or is he consuming animal blood?


  11. Congratulations on your release. What was the hardest part for you to write in the book?

  12. Congratulations, Rebecca, on the release of Second Chance! It sounds like an interesting read! It also sounds like the makings of a great series. Is there a special part of the government that is overseeing the vampire soldiers? Does your writing muse ever take an unauthorized vacation? If so, what do you do to get her back on track?


  13. A VERY unique unit indeed. ANOTHER CHANCE looks amazing. Just vampires or did I miss something?


  14. Sounds like a great book! What do you like to read for fun?
