Paranormal Romance, Firefighters, and Rock Stars in Lisa Carlisle’s Underground Encounters Series (via @lisacbooks)

Greetings, all.

I’ve had not one, but two releases since I was last here. The first two books in my Underground Encounters series came out this month, steamy paranormal romance set an at underground club.

Smolder

A novella that starts the series

I’m a firefighter. He’s a vampire.
What happens when fire meets ice?
We all lead double lives in a way. Only the most trusted are allowed into our private space. When my reality and fantasy worlds collide one night, I end up in danger.
I never thought a gym crush could be deadly… 

All I wanted was an escape from reality. Being a firefighter can be stressful and I unwind at an underground goth club. I can forget about being on call for danger, and just be Nike, a woman who likes to lose herself in music and dance. But when I spot the guy I fantasized about at the rock climbing gym, he discovers my secret.

Michel has a darker one and a connection to a world I never knew existed. My life is threatened and I have to choose whether to go with Michel. How do I find a way out of this nightmare that doesn’t end with me getting burned—or worse, sucked dry by a vampire?

Smolder is a novella that starts the Underground Encounters series, set in a club that attracts supernatural creatures. Step into Vamps and discover a thrilling new world of steamy paranormal romance featuring sexy shifters, thirsty vampires, wicked witches, and gorgeous gargoyles.

Want to be Tempted by the Gargoyle? More Stone Sentries Coming from Lisa Carlisle! (@lisacbooks)

I asked readers which series they’d like me to work on next. The Stone Sentries came in first by a slim margin, followed by the Highland Gargoyles series. Both feature gargoyle shifters, so I’m happy. 😀 I love to write about these rock hard shifters. Stay tuned. More coming soon!

Crossing Genres in When Darkness Whispers – romantic suspense, military, paranormal romance, and more! (@lisacbooks)

Some books don’t fit neatly into one category. When Darkness Whispers is one of them for me. It took me years to write and revise since there’s so much packed into it–mystery, suspense, romance, and more. I almost gave up on it, but am so glad I didn’t. I love how the story turned out. Hope you like it, too!

When Darkness Whispers

Lisa Carlisle

Some memories are better left forgotten…

Haunted by an unclear past, biologically enhanced Marine, Eva Montreaux, can’t be distracted from her mission. With American servicemen being brutally murdered on the island of Okinawa, it’s more than priority. It’s critical. But when her investigation brings her face to face with Marcos Delacruz, it triggers memories. Ones she lost. Memories that somehow include him.

Marcos Delacruz has tried to forget the woman who left him with nothing but empty promises. Even now, three years later, Eva doesn’t seem to express any guilt over breaking his heart. In truth, she seems to barely recognize him. This deployment has been challenging enough with too many restless spirits haunting the island. But when his own investigation forces him to cross paths with her once more, Marcos discovers there may be a deeper truth.

With the number of murders climbing rapidly and the rising need to track the murderer across the tropical island, Eva struggles to reclaim what she lost. But the island holds darker elements–a serial killer. One that doesn’t appear to be human.

Thrust into a world she can’t escape, Eva must discover a way to stop a murderer from destroying anyone else’s future, but how can she succeed if she can’t even remember what role Marcos played in her past?

When Darkness Whispers is a paranormal romantic suspense novel you won’t want to put down! Go undercover with a supernatural team into a world of vampires, gargoyles, shifters, demons, and ghosts. If you like haunting mystery, spine-tingling suspense, and Japanese mythology, you’ll love When Darkness Whispers!
