Reader Girls welcomes The Birth of Jaiden Blog Tour today. Author Jennifer Malone Wright is sharing an excerpt from her novel below.
Long ago, a prophecy was foreseen. A child would be born, a child who held the power to destroy the world. Now, it is up to Alexander Lucas, a one-hundred-year-old vampire, to keep the baby girl safe from his arch enemy Malcolm.
In order to save her, Alexander must raise the child as his own. Will he be able to resist his vampire tendencies to care for a human baby? With the help of the wisest of the supernatural, an organization called The Great Council, Alexander must face many battles to ensure the safety of this very special child.
Excerpt from The Birth of Jaiden:
“They’re after Jaiden!” he called back to Isabella, and then he moved his attention to the slayers. It was like watching a choreographed musical. They moved beautifully in sync with each other and even though they were without telepathy, they appeared to read each others’ minds.
Alex heard a loud roar outside the hummer and the back door on the passenger side swung open. Isabella began to scream again.
“Isabella!” Alex yelled, “Get on top of her.”
Isabella threw her body face down over Jaiden’s car seat.
The vampire who had opened the door hung onto the outer edge of the door and tried to climb around and get inside. Suddenly, the force of the wind slammed the door shut.
A loud screeching penetrated their ears. The vamp’s arm and leg were inside the vehicle while the rest of him was outside of it. Looking back, Alex saw that the vamp had grabbed a huge handful of Isabella’s beautiful blond hair.
Before he could rip it out of her head, a woman slayer shot a grappling hook out of a large weapon. Immediately, the vampire’s hand opened wide, releasing Isabella’s hair, and his body was brutally torn from the vehicle.
Alex risked taking his eyes off the road and glanced back at them. “Are you ok?”
“I guess.” Isabella was holding her head but she looked more angry than hurt.
Eyes back on the road, Alex could see the vampire’s body in front of his hummer. It was still attached and bounced grotesquely behind the speeding semi. The body continued bouncing until a stake was shot directly into the vampire’s heart.
His vision was momentarily obstructed as the body burst into flames and its ashes, very much resembling a snow storm, were blown forcefully into the windshield, and then continued over the top of the vehicle.
When she grew up, Jennifer always had her nose in a book. She has been writing stories and poems since grade school. This love of the written word and her strong interest in the paranormal is what has led to her first novel “The Birth of Jaiden.”
In addition to being a mother and homemaker, Jennifer is also a very proud military wife. Moving around the country for the last ten years has made her a bit of a nomad and she finds it difficult to be in one place for too long.
