Blog Tour Stop : Desperate Betrayal by Hildie McQueen Review & Guest Post

Adult Book Review/Post

Desperate Betrayal
By Hildie McQueen

Cynden Frasier (Cyn) is a member of a group of immortal warriors, the Protectors, assigned to protect humans in Atlanta, Georgia, the epicenter of a major uprising in demon activity. When Cyn is approached by a beautiful woman in a dirty alley, he is intrigued by the fact that she can see him for what he is, a terrifying demon slayer, and still dares to approach him.

Emma Blake, a half-demon, has to convince Cyn to help rescue her sister from powerful demons. Terrified that the Protector will kill her if he realizes what she is, she still goes against every instinct and approaches Cyn for help. Despite knowing that she is leading them both into territory so wrought with treachery, neither of them may survive.
Can Cyn and Emma overcome betrayal, the ancient rules that prevent Protectors from taking a wife, unless she is his one true mate? And if they do, will it even matter?

Hildie has stopped by with a really cool guest post, so off you go...

The ten things Hildie McQueen dreams of:

The day I retire and can sleep in every single day!

Driving a jaguar really fast

Living in a cottage by the ocean

Walking down the sidewalk in Paris wearing a beret

Finally planting a flower garden

Eating without guilt

Holding my grandchild

Sitting on a beach in Greece

Reading by a fireplace in a mountain cabin

Seeing a book of mine on a best sellers list!

About the Author:
Hildie McQueen is a whirlwind who refuses to wear anything but jeans and heels.
She grew up on the San Diego/Mexico border, joined the military at seventeen and never returned. After living in Germany, Texas and Hawaii, she finally settled in the beautiful southern town of Augusta, Georgia.
Biracial, half Mexican and half African-American, Hildie’s native language is Spanish, but English is her favorite way of communicating now.
Her mission in life is to make as many people as possible to feel normal. It’s an easy thing to do, for others to feel normal around her, because she’s anything but.

Excerpt from Desperate Betrayal

Turn around.” His smooth voice flowed over her like velvet.
Emma tried to swallow but her mouth went dry. She turned to find he stood very close.
God help her, she’d never seen a more handsome man than the one who stood before her now. Her body screamed for his touch. She wanted to be with him, her skin against his. But she wouldn’t sleep with him as a form of payment.
What if during sex he sensed that she was part demon and killed her on the spot? But, then again, maybe he would kill her just for saying no.
She forced herself to remain calm, and placed her hand on his chest only to draw it back when the urge to caress him became too strong.
Listen Cyn. I know most women throw themselves at you. I mean you’re extremely good-lo… but, I, – I am not going to have sex with you, right now. What happened before between us, out there in the alley was because of the rush from the adrenaline after your encounter with the demon…,”She stopped babbling, at a loss for words.
Cyn stood back with his arms crossed while he stared down at her, one eyebrow cocked. His lips curved into a crooked smile.
I was going move the chair for you and ask you to come sit by the desk, so I could get some more information from you. But I see your mind is on other things.” He leaned in closer to her and his smile widened. “You said ‘not right now’, does that mean we’ll have sex later?”


I would like to start out with this was one of those books I loved so much that I am going to try really hard to keep the gushing and squeee'in to a minimum :0)

The story will grab you from the start! There is action, suspense and major sexiness!! The world Hildie has created is well thought out and amazing! The story is very engaging and it's a definite page turner. I really couldn't put it down. For more fantasy books that are as engaging as this one, check out online fantasy literature classes at online universities to find fantasy books recommendations from readers

Emma : She is  half demon and she is in deep. She is looking for a way to save her sister and will stop at nothing to save her. Amazing character! She is strong, brave and appears fearless. Very likable and you can see how/why she does things the way she does. I really like her and wanted her to triumph. She is kinda put through the ringer.

Cyn: O.M.G. Hottness!! no really he is hottness personified!! I was instantly into him. We meet him in a dark alley throwin down with evil. Hildie does such a great job describing him and the way he moves/fights it's amazing. Also, let me just say there is more to him than just his inane hottness *yes I keep saying that don't I* He is loyal, strong of body and mind, calculating and FINE! He's a protector has FANGS!! and a Scot.. umm YES PLEASE :) Plus he is raisin a boy who is not his by blood but talk about fierce protector... Like I said this is a PAGE-TURNER!! 

I usually try really hard not to compare books.. but If you like Black Dagger Brotherhood or Immortals After Dark Series This is a MUST read!!

I love when I finish a book and this is what I look like LOL
