Six Sentence Sunday

Today's SSS is an unedited peek of my upcoming November release, Midnight Beckoning. I just got the cover this week. Enjoy....

Ford Lenox, a natural born damphyr, waited three hundred years for the phenomenon of his birth to be repeated. Many had been conceived. Many had even been born. But, only a few made it to their twenty-first birthday. And, none shared the same requirements as he, to assume her rightful place at his side and become his queen.
Until now.
Lauren Neil was born three hundred years to the day after Ford’s birth, and it was no coincidence that he found her only days before her twenty-first birthday. Little did she know that the damphyr lurking beneath her human surface was about to be unleashed, prominently placing her on the throne to rule over damphyr and vampire alike. 
Lauren’s demonic sire slash father, Drago, an incubus, straight from the pits of hell, has other plans.
Can Ford fulfill the prophecy and save Lauren and their kind? Or will a new species be created to rule the world?

Even a match made in heaven, may have to go through hell to survive!

SSS:

When Crispin laid Lauren on the bed, she curled into a ball, shaking and perspiring profusely. Her lips were ashen and dark circles formed under her eyes. Her muscles violently contracted as the slow crawl of deep blue and purple veins snaked across her arms, neck and face. It was evident the pain-free moments were over and the next several hours would be disturbing to witness.

Ford’s heart ached.
“It’s been a long time since I’ve witnessed a phase in person,” he whispered to no one in particular, sickened by the site of Lauren becoming what she was born to be.
