Two New Print Releases For Samantha Sommersby

Today we're celebrating two new print releases in Samantha Sommersby's Forbidden Series!

There's a fine line between mysticism and they must cross to win.

London psychiatrist Wesley Atherton is a man of science. He doesn't believe in love at first sight...until he finds himself inexplicably drawn to a green-eyed American beauty he bumps into on the Tube. Just his luck, Katherine, a fashion design intern, has an engagement ring on her finger.

Wes knows a thing or two about people, though. Instinct tells him there's something more than irresistible temptation behind their attraction. She doesn't love her fiance, he's sure of it - now if only he can convince her they're meant to be together.

Surviving a deadly train wreck is the first sign his intuition is spot on. The second - a psychic who warns them the Reaper doesn't like to be cheated out of its quarry. The situation defies all logic, but a string of strange and lethal events convinces Wes that he and Katherine are living on borrowed time. Pitted in a battle against death itself, Wes will do anything, make any sacrifice, to protect the woman he loves.

This book has been substantially revised and expanded from its original published version.
Warning: This book by Samantha Sommersby contains one bad-ass demon, spectacular shagging, a feisty American heroine, and one very hot, very British, knife-wielding shrink.


There's only one way to safeguard the future - fight free of the past.

Byron Renfield is a master of climbing the social ladder. He's successful, handsome, independently wealthy...and a vampire. As a member of an elite group of immortals, the Dominie, Byron's spent centuries isolating himself from humanity in order to pursue redemption. It's a good plan...until Violet Deeds comes along.

Violet is beautiful, sexy, outspoken...and human, which makes her completely off limits. His society's canon may forbid it, but Byron is rocked by a longing so intense that in one impulsive act of passion, he claims Violet as his mate.

Irrevocably bound together, Byron and Violet enter one another's worlds, threatening the balance of society and nature. He takes steps to protect them both from the Dominie's inevitable retribution, but it isn't enough. Violet is hunted down and kidnapped. If Byron wants a life - any life - with Violet, he must defy the very core of the Dominie itself. And win.

This book has been previously published and has been revised and expanded from its original release.

WARNING: This book by Samantha Sommersby contains one fabulously feisty redheaded heroine, one hunky holy-man-turned-rebel vampire, a group of corrupt religious zealots, women in chains and plenty of scorching hot sex.

  15. @AuthorIsland - Sorry I'm late to the party. I'm recovering for a cold and it's been a long day following a sleepless night :(

    The Forbidden series is set in a world where vampires, werewolves and demons are real, where magic is possible, and where love still conquers all. There are 4 books available now in eBook. Boos 1 & 2 are also available in print. I'll share the WARNINGS (which I LOVE)

    Book 1 - The Sacrifice
    WARNING: This book contains one bad-ass demon, spectacular shagging, a feisty American heroine, and one very hot, very British, knife-wielding shrink.

    Book 2 - The Ascension
    WARNING: This book contains one fabulously feisty redheaded heroine, one hunky holy-man-turned-rebel vampire, a group of corrupt religious zealots, women in chains and plenty of scorching hot sex.

    Book 3 - The Revolution
    WARNING: This book contains spectacular magical ass-kickings, copious amounts of blistering sex, one super-sexy, gun-toting heroine, and a very delicious, very powerful sorcerer…who sometimes sports fangs.

    Book 4 - The Temptation
    Warning: This book contains raging winter storms, truly inspiring sex, a kick-butt heroine, and one very hot, dirty-talking cowboy…who’s sometimes furry.

    Q: How did I come up with the idea for the series?
    A: The Forbidden series, which I’ve been working on for the past couple years, was conceived during a flight back from London. I’d ended up having to extend my stay there because I’d fallen terribly ill. I’d thought at the time that it was food poisoning or a horrible flu. I was still in a very bad way during the flight home. I slept on and off. I was in the middle row on the plane and there were a bunch of seats across so I could stretch out. There was only one other passenger sharing the row with me and he was busy watching gay porn on his portable DVD player. Orlando Bloom was on the cover of the American Way magazine and I started thinking that he’d make a great mild-mannered vampire. Between naps I jotted down notes. By the time I landed in San Diego I had the series laid out. It turned out I didn’t have food poisoning. I was severely anemic and ended up in the hospital for blood transfusions. Did my anemia inspire my vampire series? Hmmmm.

  17. OMGosh I have to hve these books! The excerpts were fantastic and the covers were awesome! Samantha you basically sold me the whole series with those warnings you posted in your comment:) That's it they are going in my soon to be read list!

  18. @joder
    I really enjoy the paranormal romance/urban fantasy genre. I enjoy writing heroines who are smart and strong and heroes who are confident, cleaver, and willing to be a partner to my heroine in every way. I work hard to create a dynamic and memorable couple who are better and stronger together than they are separately.

    I love the covers too!

    Thanks all for coming. Please do write and let me know what you think of the books!


  19. Ohhhh party!!!!! yayayayaya!!!!! Congrats on the release!!!!!!!!!! Please count me in!

  20. The series sounds great! Do you find it more difficult to write from the man's point of view than the woman's?

  21. Congrats! A knife-wielding psychiatrist? Really? I've got to check this out.

    I hope you're feeling better. I've been sick with the flu for a week myself.

    Now that the series had a demon, a vampire, and a couple of weres/shifters, what's next on your paranormal plate?


  22. Oh yes, love the 'warnings'...hehe!!!

    And what a way to get an idea for a book? Thanks for answering.

    Hope you are feeling better!!


  23. Hi Samantha. Congrats on the release of your print books. Love the covers. They sound very good.
