Ruby by Jettie Necole ~ Excerpts and Review Snippets

Excerpt 1:
She opened her eyes to find a strange man above her.
"Ahh," he sighed. "Your eyes are the color of jade. I imagined them to be dark, like your hair. How strange."
She continued to stare at him without a word. His figure loomed over her, and he stared at her with large, black eyes, like those of a bird, she thought. His thin, black hair fell past his chin, making him appear delicate, almost beautiful. His lips curved to a smile.
"I find you just as beautiful, my dear," he said.
His statement shocked her; it was as if he'd read her thoughts.
"Yes, I know what you think presently, but…." He paused for a moment. "Not all of them. You keep something hidden from me. Hmm, how strange. Very well. It seems you are more interesting than I first thought."
"What is it that you want?" she spat out.
"Oh, please do not start with that nonsense," he chided. "My plans are not for you to know. However, I will assure you that now I have seen you, I plan to keep you, at least for a while."

Excerpt 2:
Ruby studied the man's attire. His black coat was soaked. He must have been caught in the wind and rain, she noted. The clothing was basic, nothing impressive. He is impressive, though, she thought. His disheveled appearance could not hide his attractive qualities. And at first sight she could have sworn she'd come upon a character from one of her books¬¬—the gallant prince turned pirate. Perhaps it was his tall, strong form and unshaven face that gave him such a roguish appearance. It also wasn't hard to look into his blue eyes, which peered out from beneath his lengthy wet mop of black hair.
His deep voice interrupted her thoughts. "Do you usually keep your visitors waiting?"
"Not the visitors I have been expecting," she remarked with a smile.
"It seems that you've tortured me long enough," he said with a wink.
"I think the rain has done more than I," she mocked, motioning toward his apparel.
He remembered his appearance and ran a hand through his damp hair. He felt nervous and didn't understand why. "Please excuse my appearance," he apologized.

Review Snippets:

"The writing is very detailed and the book is nice and long and has a lot of meat on its bones. The characters are very nuanced and each character is a work of art. There are lots of plot twists and turns. It starts out like any historical romance and then takes a hard left turn – if you've ever seen or read “The Hunt for Red October,” then you might say Necole is a master user of “Crazy Ivans.”
-Danielle Goodwin
"Once I started reading I was completely absorbed and hooked. Jettie Necole weaves an intriguing and detailed story of Regency England where Vampires and other unnatural creatures roam the night undetected by normals."
-Joy for Crystal's Many Reviewers
"It was a fast paced book with love, mystery, suspense, and even some funny laugh out loud moments."
-Tonya Nichols @ Eye Candy Bookstore
"The storyline was unique and engaging. It blended history, paranormal, romance, and suspense beautifully creating a wonderful masterpiece. There is also plenty of action and drama to keep you on the edge of your seat and flipping page after page wondering what happens next."
-Ashley Martinez

"Twists and turns I never saw coming had me gripping my kindle for dear life waiting to see what happened next. Not to mention the young men in this book, Fredrick & Druvirro, mysterious yet handsome. The ending got me good, begging for more."
