I am so excited to take part in the blog tour for Aurora Sky by Nikki Jefford! I absolutely love what Nikki did with witches and could not wait to see what she would do with the vampire, and I was not disappointed!! Nikki has to be one of the kindest and most talented people that I have ever met! I am always glad to support her efforts!!
If there is one thing eighteen-year-old Aurora Sky wants, it’s to get off the iceberg she calls home. Being kissed before she graduates wouldn’t hurt either.Find Aurora Sky at Amazon | Goodreads
Then a near-fatal car wreck changes everything. Government agents step in and save Aurora’s life in exchange for her services as a vampire hunter. In Alaska. Basically she’s a glorified chew toy. All thanks to her rare blood type, which sends a vampire into temporary paralysis right before she has to finish the job… by hand.
Now Aurora’s only friends are groupies of the undead and the only boy she can think about may very well be a vampire. And if he’s a vampire, will she be forced to kill him?
For ages 16+

Excerpt from My Review: 5-Must Devour
"In most vampire hunter stories the hunter relies on their ability to be able to over power vampires, but Aurora has a different set of skills. Her blood is paralytic and instead of beating vampires into submission until she can get a kill shot, she lures them in with the temptation of her blood. And this little twist blew me away and I never saw it coming. The vampires in this story had a little of what you would expect with that little something special that can only come from Nikki Jefford's mind."
My Complete Review of Aurora Sky
Dante chuckled. “Relax, Sky. We’re superhuman, remember? Danger is what we do best.”
I folded my arms over my chest. “Whatever.”
I glanced back. Tommy must have been used to Dante’s driving because the dog moved with the car.
Dante spared me from yelling at him again by slowing down.
“So what do you want to know about our fanged foes and how we’ve been recruited to rid this world of evil? Fire away.”
“All right, are there really vampires?”
“I was told you were initiated.”
“That doesn’t answer my question.”
“It should. The beast bit you, didn’t it?”
“Yeah, but any crazy person can bite someone.”
A smile worked its way up Dante’s cheeks. “Did this one drink blood straight from your vein?”
“Welcome to the world of the demonic, Sky.”
I stared out the window at the shadowed storefronts as we passed through downtown. There was a certain thrill to leaving town even if we were headed deeper into the darkness.
I shifted in my seat. “Did you believe the agents when they told you there were vampires?”
Dante shrugged. “I don’t know. I mean, anything’s possible. What I didn’t believe is that they’d doped me up on some kind of noxious blood that’d knock a creature out.”
“And then they initiated you.”
Dante was quiet a moment then laughed. “Oh, yeah. Who forgets their first bite? It’s more memorable than the first time you have sex.”
“You’ll understand once you have a chance to compare.”
Well, I could compare. Not that it was any of Dante’s business. Sex and bloodsucking were seriously overrated in my opinion.
