I’m very happy to have that awesome writing couple, C.D. Hersh, here to talk about their latest. I have read the first in their series, Promised One, and it’s a great story, so I’m looking forward to their next book in the series.

Cover Reveal ­ Blood Brothers (The Turning Stone Chronicles

Coming summer 2014 from Soul Mate Publishing

A Paranormal Romance

Heat Level: Sensual


We are very happy with our cover and excited to share it for the first time on the

Thursday Threads group post. Only our daughter and closest friends have seen the cover

before now. The SMP artist did a wonderful job in capturing the concept of our book and

the city skyline continues to be a part of the cover as this is the second book in the five

part series of The Turning Stone Chronicles which primarily takes places in and around


When our heroine Delaney Ramsey saw she is on the cover of our new book she

about passed out. Not unlike she did when Rhys tried to bring out her alter ego. She just

couldn’t believe she had made the cover. Delaney has never wanted to be noticed or the

center of attention, but she now is out there for the world to see.



When Delaney Ramsey is enlisted to help train two of the most powerful shape shifters

the Turning Stone Society has seen in thousands of years, she suspects one of them is

responsible for the disappearance of her daughter. To complicate matters, the man has a

secret that could destroy them all. Bound by honor to protect the suspect, Delaney must

prove his guilt without losing her life to his terrible powers or revealing to the police

captain she’s falling for that she’s a shape shifter with more than one agenda.


The minute Captain Williams lays eyes on Delaney Ramsey, he knows she’s trouble.

Uncooperative, secretive, and sexy, he can’t get her out of his mind. When he discovers

she has a personal agenda for sifting through all the criminal records in his precinct, and

secretly investigating his best detective, he can’t let her out of his sight. He must find out

what she’s looking for before she does something illegal. If she steps over the line, he’s

not certain he can look the other way for the sake of love.



The telephone jangling pulled Delaney Ramsey out of a deep sleep. Moving the

digital clock on the nightstand closer to her, she squinted at the bright green numbers.

Three a.m. She fumbled for the receiver.

“If you’re calling at this ungodly hour, someone better be dead,” she mumbled into

the phone.

“Delaney, ’tis Eli McCraigen.”

Sitting up, she pulled the duvet cover with her. Why was the Keeper of the Stone

calling her? “What’s wrong, Eli?”

“Dinna worry yerself. ’Tis good news.”

Slumping against the headboard, she yawned, the adrenalin draining away with his

words. “If it’s such good news, why couldn’t you wait until tomorrow?”

“I need ye tae call a special meeting o’ the council before they get away from the


“All fifteen?”

“Nay, only the senior council. I’ve a new Promised One tae present.”

“Why wasn’t he presented last night at Samhain?”

“He hadnae committed tae the cause, and he dinna have a ring until minutes

before midnight.”

“This is highly irregular, Eli. I don’t know if I can get the council to agree.”

“Ye have tae. He’s a verra special man.”

“A Promised One who hasn’t even had his ring more than a few hours. That’s

unheard of. How can you expect someone like that to pass even one proof test?”

“He’s already shown me two­­and they’re not the paltry tests most Promised Ones

have failed. He has the elusive, legendary powers, and he did them using the power of

other shifters’ rings.”

She snapped awake. “Other shifters’ rings? Whose?”

“Mine, Alexi Jordan’s and Sylvia Jordan’s.”

Delaney switched the light on, knocking her reading glasses to the floor with the

motion. Great. She’d just bought them. Leaning over the edge of the bed, she retrieved

the glasses and put them on. “Sylvia Jordan Riley?”

“’Tis that what the she­witch is calling herself now?”

“Seems so. Her name has come across my desk in her official capacity with

Homeland Security.”

“That’s the other thing I need from ye. Sylvia’s butting intae Rhys’ and Alexi’s jobs

and personal lives. I’m pretty certain she knows what he is, too. I need reinforcements.”

In all the years she’d known Eli, he’d never asked for assistance. And he comes to

me now. At the worst possible time. “I’m honored you’d think of me, but I can’t do more

than call the council for you. Ask one of them to get your reinforcements.”

“Fine, the council can arrange that, but I need ye on a more personal mission.”

“I’m in the middle of something very important and time consuming. I can’t help.”

“Dinna ye know who’s asking ye, lassie?”

She knew all right. The most powerful man in the entire Turning Stone Society.

She was crazy to even consider refusing him. Her position on the council rested on his

say so. However, finding her daughter meant more to her than anything else. “Normally

I’d be willing to die for you, Eli, but­­”

“Let’s pray dying won’t be what we’ll be needing. But I could be putting ye in a

verra dangerous position.”

That did it. No way could she help if it might cost her life. Not now. Not until she

found Lila. “I’m sorry. I can’t.”

“I need ye, Delaney. Come tae University Hospital and see me. I’m in ER.”

“ER? Are you all right?”

“We had a little run­in with a panther.”
