The Sentinels, Book #1
Publisher:  Zebra
Publication Date:  December 31, 2013
In a stunning new series, Alexandra Ivy lures readers into the dark, seductive world of the Sentinels—humans outcast by their hidden abilities, treading the line between life and death, good and evil, pleasure and pain. . .

In The Heart Of Darkness
Sergeant Duncan O’Conner has seen it all before. Beautiful erotic dancer, murdered at home, no suspect, no motive. But there’s one clue: she’s missing her heart. It’s enough to make the hard-bitten Kansas City cop enlist the help of a necro–one of the dead-channelling freaks who live in the domed city of nearby Valhalla. It’s a long shot, but desperate crimes call for desparate measures.
Lies The Kiss Of Death
Unlike the other “high-bloods” in Valhalla, Callie Brown considers her abilities a gift, not a curse. But when she reads the dancer’s final thoughts, she senses a powerful presence blocking her vision. This is no ordinary homicide. This is the work of a legendary necromancer who controls souls. A ravenous force that will put Callie’s skills to the test, O’Conner’s career at risk, and both their hearts on the line. . .literally.

Part 10
“Of course not,” she assured him, horrified he’d misread her own insecurities.  “The only thing that bothers me is the fear I might not see you again.”
The confession hung in the air, then with a choked groan, Anton had her wrapped in a grip that squeezed the air from her lungs as his lips claimed hers in a kiss that demanded utter surrender.
Incandescent pleasure exploded through Jayne as she wrapped her arms around his neck, her fingers thrusting into the thick satin of his hair.
It was even better than she’d dreamed.
Jayne lost track of time as she reveled in Anton’s heated passion, her stomach muscles clenching as she felt the unmistakable thrust of his arousal.  It was the distant sound of a hooting owl that at last brought them back to reality.
Lifting his head, Anton studied her with a brooding gaze.  “Not that I don’t appreciate you’re creative approach in trying to sneak past our barriers, but I left my number for you.  Why didn’t you just call?”
She blushed.  “Why didn’t you?” 
His thumb brushed her lips still throbbing from his kisses.  “I knew you would come.”
She arched a brow.  “You think you’re so irresistible?”
“If not me, then Charlie would eventually lure you into my web,” he murmured.
“Web?”  She sucked in a deep breath, savoring his heady male scent.  “That’s an interesting choice of words.”
“A web doesn’t release its prey.”  His arms tightened as she gave a small shiver.  “Are you afraid?”
“Never of you,” she assured him, knowing that it would take time to get used to the powerful emotions that thundered through her.
He held her gaze.  “You’ll stay?”
She didn’t hesitate.  “For how long?”
A smile that made her heart stop curled his lips.  “Eternity sounds about right.”
“Eternity.”  She went on pulled his head down, not even close to being done with his delicious kisses.  “That does sound right.”
