Tour: Kiss of the Betrayer by Boone Brux (Guest Post/Giveaway)

Please give a warm welcome to Boone Brux!


Spirits to Chase Away the Chill


I’ve been known to post a few drink recipes in my day and with the holiday season upon us; I thought I’d share my favorite drink recipe of all times—Hot Buttered Rum. Yummy! Now if you’ve never had this concoction, let me just warn you that it’s deliciously full of calories and slightly addictive. Therefore, I make an event of creating the HBR batter once each holiday. Once it’s gone, it’s gone until the next holiday season rolls around.

Hot Buttered Rum:
1 lb. butter
1 lb. confectioners' sugar
1 lb. cup packed brown sugar
1 quart vanilla ice cream
1 Tbs.groundcinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg (Optional. Personally, I don’t like nutmeg, so I skip this ingredient.)

Each cup will need:
boiling water (Amount depends on how big of a mug you use.)
1 to 3 tablespoons rum (I usually go for the 3T because I use big cups)

Directions:
Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Blend in brown sugar and confectioners' sugar. Remove from heat, and whisk in the ice cream, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pour mixture into a plastic container, seal, and freeze. I like to use a plastic ice cream tub, but Tupperware works fine.

In a coffee mug, measure 1 tablespoon Hot Buttered Rum Batter and 1 fluid ounce of rum, then fill cup with boiling water. Stir and sprinkle top of drink with nutmeg.

Enjoy! I’m wishing each of you a fabulous holiday full of love and hot buttery rum goodness!

For fifteen years Luc Le Daun has blamed himself for the death of the woman he loved. His secret guilt has led him into a life of danger, risking all and committing to none.
Killing Luc Le Daun has been all Jade Kendell has thought about for years. But when her plan goes awry and she's brought into the Bringers' fold, her own dark secret threatens to be revealed. Desire for a better life wars with a promise made long before she understood the ramifications.
In a deadly mission, Jade and Luc embark on a journey into the Shadow World. As they attempt the impossible, ignoring the attraction growing between them becomes harder to deny. The slightest misstep could mean the loss of their souls and give the Demon King exactly what he needs to open the Abyss of Souls and annihilate the Bringers.

EXCERPT:

Now that Jade had tried to kill Luc, doubts plagued her. She’d never stopped to consider what it meant to take another person’s life, never thought about the cost to her own soul. It had always been: Ithad to be done. Luc had to pay for his betrayal.
Rell thirsted for vengeance. With each cruel deed she seemed bent on performing, Jade volunteered in her place, hoping to slow her sister’s descent into the world of the Bane. For so long she’d fought to keep Rell rooted to humanity, but never once noticed her own slipping away.
A twig snapped, jolting Jade from her thoughts. She crouched and searched the forest. Nothing moved in the murky grayness. A shiver ran across her skin, the woods’ coolness suddenly feeling a lot less welcoming. Maybe the follower was Rell, or a deer. Jade didn’t dare call out in case someone or something else stalked her. Other creatures lurked in the forest, none of which she wished to encounter. She cursed herself for not keeping the knife she had used to stab Luc. Now her inability to stomach its feel seemed idiotic.
Another twig snapped. She spun and ran in the opposite direction. Footsteps thundered after her, closing fast. She broke through the trees and was halfway across the clearing when someone hit her full force, taking her to the ground. The breath burst from her body from the weight of the person landing on top of her. It took only a second to realize who the attacker was.
Luc.

Boone Brux
Genre: Historical Fantasy Romance

Protecting humans is the Bringers’ duty. Sending demons to the Shadow World is their pleasure.
In one night, Ravyn’s life plunges from barely tolerable to deadly. Forced to flee the only home she’s known, she stumbles headlong into the clutches of Icarus, a powerful demon intent on stealing her powers. Unfortunately for him, she has no intention of cooperating.
When Rhys realizes the woman he’s rescued from the Bane Demon is no mere human, his obligation as a Bringer dictates he protect and train her in the ways of his people. But he’s unprepared for the intense desire he feels for the fiery Ravyn. To surrender to his need may mean her death.
As the Demon King’s desire for ultimate power escalates, fathers are slated against sons, and foes are made allies. The Bane threat upon them, Rhys and Ravyn must quest to unite the last of the Bringers—and explore a passion too powerful to ignore.
