Welcome Cornelia Amiri

Enter Ellora’s Cave and step underhill to the dwelling place of the baobhan sith. They are waiting for you. They’ve saved you a dance.
Who are what are the baobhan sith, you ask? They are vampiric fey who roam the Scottish highlands. All of them are women, no men and they have talons, no fangs and like other vampires, they drink human blood and they fry in the sunlight. Many call them dancing vampires as they look for young men coming from the pub at night. The baobhan sith dance with them until the men are exhausted then they transform their nails to talons and claw at their skin, draining their blood. Two books of my Dancing Vampire series are available now with three more to come. With five quickies in all, I refer to them as 5 Shades of Fey. The latest, Vampire Highland Fling, was just released. Here’s two pinterst boards on the baobhan sith and my books & and below is a blurb and excerpt:
Vampire Highland Fling
Cornelia Amiri
Second in the Dancing Vampires series.
Murdina, a dark vampiric fey, hunts the Scottish Highlands for a man, but not for blood—Murdina wants love. She spots Cameron playing the bagpipes, and when a strong wind lifts his kilt, she takes a good look and decides he’s the one.
When Cameron meets a beautiful, mysterious woman who dances the Highland fling for him, his blood boils for her. Soon Murdina and Cameron are doing more than dancing. Wrapped in each other’s arms, they discover true love, but their time together is limited before Murdina’s fey sisters cross the portal to steal her back and probably kill him. Is their love strong enough to overcome the threat her sisters pose to Murdina’s heart and to Cameron’s life?
The moment he set his bagpipes down by his feet, she slid her arms around his firm, muscular shoulders, locking her hands at the base of his neck. Then he encircled her with his warm, bracing arms. He pulled her tighter to him and parted her lips with a thrust of his tongue. The open-mouth kiss deepened, now hungry and demanding. She’d seduced thousands of humans before, but melted like hot honey in the arms of only this one.

Humans were for feeding on. She and her sisters lured them with a sultry dance then transformed their fingernails to talons to draw the humans’ blood and lap it up. What a waste it would be to use this man for nothing but his blood. What would happen if he found out what she was? He’d run away. She was a baobhan sith and they killed men like him. Though she’d decided she’d never hurt him, he wouldn’t know that.

He slid his moist tongue between her parted lips. With sweeping, swirling motions, he invaded her mouth. She clung even tighter to him, lost in the fervor of the kiss, wanting it to never end.

A voice she recognized, calling her name, pierced the silence of the night. She pulled her mouth from Cameron’s and stepped out of his embrace. “Not them. Not now.” Trembling, she crossed her arms against her chest to steady herself. “Oh no. Cameron, run.”

He didn’t move. His eyebrows arched and his brow furrowed, his expression shifted to shock and confusion.

“Danger. Go.” She flung her arms in the air, gesturing to him. “Run now.”

“No. I am not leaving you. I’ll protect you. Who are they?”

“My sisters. They mean me no harm. I am fine, but you need to run. I beg of you, go. I will explain later. I am fine.”

“Are you sure they mean you no harm?”

“Yes. They cannot harm me. I promise. Do as I say so I will see you again.”

He grabbed his bagpipes off the ground and clutching them, he turned and sprinted away. She wheeled around, facing her five sisters, who were glaring daggers at her. Her jaw clenched tight.

“Just one?” Tearlag’s face flushed red with anger.

“Where are ours?” Fuamnach set both her hands on her curvy hips.

“You came up here from underhill without even telling us.” Mordag took a step closer to her.

“You don’t even want to share. You picked out one, just for yourself.” Aithbhreac spit her words out.

Eimhear tilted her dainty chin in the air. “Greedy. And you sent him running from us.”

Before Murdina could answer, all five of her sisters said simultaneously, “We can catch him.”

She hated to do it but she had no choice and she had to act now before her sisters killed Cameron. Stretching her arms into the air, she began a spell.
“To stop you, sisters mine
I halt your chase
I cast a spell of time
He’s off at a fast pace
While you freeze in place
Now outpaced.”

She shuddered as a surge of energy racked her body. All five of her sisters stood frozen in place, unable to move.
