I *found* Jesse Fox through Dark Diva Reviews and a review that I did for her book Blood Noir here. I was totally caught up in this book and could not put it down.  It's a mystery and thriller and romance all tied up into one compelling story.  So when I found that she was offering a free story to her readers I went directly to her site (link above).  And, while it's very different from Blood Noir, this novella still has the ability to draw the reader right into it.  For a paranormal story Eternal comes across as very contemporary and, even somewhat, real.  I think it's the connection between the heroes.  All I can say is that for any fans of Jesse Fox, this is a must-read.  And for those that have never read anything by this wonderful storyteller, then I suggest a good introduction is Eternal.   And then further your acquaintance with Blood Noir.  You won't be sorry!
