We aren't a we without all of us.

Chaos reigns in The Sleepless City and it’s really beginning to piss Detective Jonas Forge off.

He’s separated from his soulmate, Blair Turner. A separation he fears might be permanent. Nothing is going right. It’s as if the universe is conspiring against him. A long closed off door buried deep within his psyche cracks open when a turn of events flips his world upside down. There’s a monster behind that door and he’s not sure where the monster leaves off and he begins.

Hallucinations grip the town and demons lurk around every corner, causing havoc and threatening to tear the family in Boggs’s Castle to shreds. The only way forward is to bare all to each other. While Forge and Declan confront horrors from their shared past, they all learn a terrible truth about vampires—one not even imagined in their worst nightmare.

Can they turn it all around and control a monster in order to defeat a demon?

If you like imperfect heroes with tarnished pasts who don’t know how to quit, then you’ll love Shifting Chaos by Elizabeth Noble, the action-packed, emotional conclusion to The Sleepless City.

Excerpt:

Blair yanked him into the garage. “Yeah. She runs a homeless shelter for teens. She’ll put everything to good use. And I really don’t want most of it anyway.” He pressed the door opener and the garage door slid down drenching them in cool darkness. The only bit of light was from a small, round window in the back wall and a door opening to the house.

Forge dropped his duffle and grabbed Blair’s arm, turning him to face Forge. Blair’s arms wound around Forge’s neck, grinning when Forge backed him up to the wall and pinned him there. Forge claimed his mouth, slipping his tongue between Blair’s lips.

When they broke their kiss, Blair licked Forge’s neck and nipped his earlobe. “I missed everyone so much,” Blair panted. “Ben, Lucas, Simon, even Declan.” He grabbed Forge’s belt and jerked him even closer. “I missed hearing the lake at night.”

When they broke their kiss, Blair licked Forge’s neck and nipped his earlobe. “I missed everyone so much,” Blair panted. “Ben, Lucas, Simon, even Declan.” He grabbed Forge’s belt and jerked him even closer. “I missed hearing the lake at night.”

Forge leaned back far enough to pull Blair’s thin shirt up and over his head then nipped at his jaw. “Yeah?”

“And Moose. I really missed Moose.” Blair moaned and tilted his head back, giving Forge complete access to his neck of which he took full advantage, tongue and teeth skimming along Blair’s throat and over his Adam’s apple. “Oh, tin man I missed you, my big, badass, vampire cop most of all.”

Forge stopped and leaned back. “Did you just quote the Wizard of Oz at me?”

Blair exhaled a laugh. “There was a movie marathon while I was packing last night.” He slipped his arms around Forge’s waist, shoved his knee between Forge’s thighs and stepped away from the wall, reversing their positions. Getting Forge’s shirt unbuttoned, Blair’s tongue blazed a trail from his collar bone to his navel then up to a nipple while he kicked his sandals off. “It was a political commentary,” Blair’s fangs skimmed Forge’s nipple, he nipped gently. “Oz is the…”

Forge got his hands between them and unzipped Blair’s boardshorts. “I read it long before you did. When it was first published, actually.”

Still, in the end, this was a phenomenal story! I’m so glad we got to see the boys again. It was great to see the banter and bickering between them but also for the characters to recognize that even though they’re mates, that doesn’t automatically mean they know everything about each other so it was interesting to see the dynamics between the group. I absolutely adored watching it play out. I hope this isn’t the end of the series because I really want more of them!

About the Author

Mystery, action, chills, and thrills spiced with romance and desire. ELIZABETH NOBLE lives by the adage "I can't not write." She doesn't remember a time when she didn’t make up stories and eventually she learned how to put words on a page. Those words turned into books and fan fiction that turned into a genuine love of M/M fiction. A part of every day is spent living in worlds she created that are filled with intrigue and espionage. She has a real love for a good mystery complete with murder and twisty plots as well as all things sci-fi, futuristic, and supernatural.

When she's not chronicling the adventures of her many characters, Elizabeth is a veterinary nurse living in her native Cleveland, Ohio. She has three grown children and now happily shares her little, brick house with an adorable mixed breed canine princess, a spunky Cardigan Welsh Corgi and their sidekick, tabby cat. Elizabeth is a fan of baseball, basketball (go Cavs and Indians) and gardening. She can often be found working in her 'outside office' listening to classic rock and plotter her next novel waiting for it to be dark enough to gaze at the stars.

Elizabeth has received a number of amateur writing awards. Since being published, several of her novels have received Honorable Mentions in the Rainbow Awards. Jewel Cave was a runner-up in the Gay Mystery/Thriller category in the 2015 Rainbow Awards. Ringed Love was a winner in the Gay Fantasy Romance category of the 2016 Rainbow Awards.
