Welcome to my stop on the Roxanne Rhoads Hex and the Single Witch Virtual Book Tour.  Please be sure to leave a comment or question below for Roxanne as she has several prizes outlined below.  You can follow Roxanne's tour here


Hex and the Single Witch
Vehicle City Vampires Book One
By Roxanne Rhoads

Anwyn Rose is descended from a long line of powerful witches yet she can barely cast spells young witchlings have mastered. She has one functioning witch gift, the power of knowing, which she puts to good use as a Detective on Flint’s Preternatural Investigation Team.

It’s a new era in Vehicle City, supernaturals are running the town. 

The P.I.T has their hands full with paranormal crimes. Top priority is a serial killer, who appears to be a vampire, draining young women in the city.
Anwyn is on the case with her sexy partner Detective Mike Malone. Complicating things is her relationship Galen, a vampire who looks more guilty than innocent, although Anwyn trusts her instincts even if her power is on the fritz.

Mysterious spells, compromising situations, and a possible demon on the loose make it hard to focus on the case, but Anwyn has to make things right before the human police execute the wrong vampire.

Hex and the Single Witch contains magick, a little bit of mystery, a lot of supernatural mayhem, and a sexy love triangle that will leave you wanting more.



I moved closer to him. Goddess, I wanted him. I needed him. All those suggestive letters… It was time I got a little aggressive. “Galen, I just know it is not you.” I walked around him and dropped my jacket on a chair. “Now enough of this talk of death, let’s talk about something else. Like all the gifts, notes and letters you’ve been sending me. I’m wearing the little black thong you sent.”

His nostrils flared and his eyes shimmered with his green fire of desire. “We cannot, I must not, it is too dangerous...”

 I pushed him into the chair and covered his mouth with mine. “Quit talking and just enjoy the ride.” I straddled him, fumbling with the buttons of his shirt. A sigh escaped as I finally reached in and touched his chest, his smooth muscular chest. I traced designs and swirls over his pecs and abs causing him to shudder and shiver, and then leaned over, kissing his neck and finding the smooth hollow of his throat. I lingered there tracing designs with my tongue. He squirmed under me, trying to protest. While teasing his neck with my lips, I slid my fingers to his jeans and the bulge straining to be released. I caressed it, running my fingertips across it, pressing and stroking through the denim.

 With a growl he gave up fighting and took control, standing up, lifting me in the air and pushing me onto the couch, pressing his lean body into mine. I moaned softly in his ear. My skin tingled wherever he touched me. His lips found mine, and I hesitantly slipped my tongue between them. He responded by darting his tongue inside my mouth. It tasted of cinnamon and dark chocolate. I wrapped my fingers in his long waves and pulled him deeper into an embrace. I wanted him, all of him.

 He pulled away, looking at me intensely, his eyes full of desire and hunger. Seeing him above me sent heat throughout my body where it puddled in my groin. I was tempting the beast, but I wasn't afraid. I felt a rush and reached to undo his jeans. He responded by pushing my dress up around my waist and yanking my little black thong down. I yanked at his jeans and underwear until they were out of the way. His hand crept up my body until he touched my breast, cupping it in his palm as he thumbed the nipple sending intense waves of pleasure rolling through me. His knee pressed against my inner thigh. He spread me open as he eased himself between my legs.

 He pulled away again and looked deep into my eyes, the wanting, the desire, the blood lust, it was all there making me crave him. There was no turning back now. I arched my back and thrust against him, his shaft had been poised, ready to enter and I impaled myself on him. A guttural sound escaped from him, he lowered his body and met my demands by thrusting into me. I gasped as he fully entered me, filling my body and soul with his presence and his need. His lips found my throat gently kissing and teasing, a casual graze of his teeth caused fear and desire to flood my senses. God, what was I doing? This man, this...this...vampire could kill me in a heartbeat, but deep inside I knew he wouldn't, he would never let himself lose control and go too far...would he?

 He must have been reading my mind, because he let out a soft wail of anguish and pulled away from me leaving me cold and alone on the couch.

 “I cannot! I must not do this to you, I will not risk it.” He looked sad, broken, standing there naked in front of me.

 “Galen, I trust you, I believe in you.”

 “But I do not believe in myself.”

 “You didn't kill those women. I know it in my heart you didn't do it, you're not a killer!”

 His eyes grew cold. “I killed before, why not now?”

 “Because, you were different back then, starved and forced to kill. Probably, even spelled into doing it. The one who made you was cruel, he enjoyed the killing. He tried to make you enjoy it too. But you didn’t then, and you don’t now.”

 “Maybe I did enjoy it, maybe I never really changed; maybe you cannot change your nature. I am a predator, a killer. That is all I will ever be. The only reason you are here with me is because of the thrill of the unknown, I am the forbidden fruit. I am a monster. And you want to put yourself in the hands of a monster and risk your life.” His anger caught me off guard, and it made me angry.

 “That's not why I'm with you! You have to accept you are a man and a vampire, the danger and desire are part of you. You can't do the what ifs and try to separate the two, it doesn't work that way. Accept who and what you are. I have and I love you for all of it, you are a dangerous creature but you are also a loving man.”

 “That does not change the fact women have died, women I had sex with, women I drank from. I do not remember killing them, but what if I lost control like I used to, and I just do not remember. I never want you to be one of them. I can't risk it. I don't want to kill you, Anwyn.” A soft sob escaped him. He sank to his knees and dropped his head to my chest. His soft black hair spread over my breast and a tear dripped onto my nipple. He was everything; fragile, strong, dangerous, weak, man, beast, beautiful...Goddess help me, I loved a vampire.
