My First Contest!

Dark Time I won an autographed copy of Dakota Bank's Dark Time from Patricia at Patricia's Vampire Notes, so decided to hold my very first contest for the copy I impatiently bought myself because I was convinced I wouldn't win.

Three hundred years ago, she sold her soul to a demon. Now she wants it back. For centuries, the woman calling herself Maliha Crayne has lived a second life—as an assassin for the malevolent creature who owns her soul. A haunted killer with the blood of countless victims on her hands, she has finally discovered a way to nullify the demonic pact that chains her: If she saves a life for every one she has taken, she will be free. But if she fails, her punishments will be unspeakable, unendurable . . . and neverending.
