As far as immortals go, Ryder is a young one, having joined the ranks of THE KNIGHTS OF WHITE only twenty-five years earlier.  Now he finds himself back in the place where he grew up, the place where he died, the place where he became an immortal knight fighting for the side of good in the never-ending battle against evil.

Having arrived in Round Rock, he quickly realizes the reason for his return home – his mate.  Alexis Wright is everything he could have ever dreamed of in a mate, yet never expected.  Now, if only he can protect her from the Darkland Beasts besieging her ranch.  Oh, and convince her to accept his mating mark, spend eternity with him, and that other little thing – fall in love with him.

Silhouette Nocturne introduces Nocturne Bites, short paranormal romances that are available only in digital format.  They introduced this new line of novellas just this month, in June 2008, and Lisa Renee Jones has the distinct honor of being one of the first two authors published in this new line.

What a story it is, too!  Ms. Jones delivers a tasty little romance that fits in with her popular THE KNIGHTS OF WHITE series.  In RETURN OF THE BEAST, we experience the brief but still thrilling romance between Ryder and his mate, Alexis.  Only thing is, when Ryder first meets Alexis, she is already in a bit of a sticky situation.  Still, the lady is no push-over and Ryder is thrilled to witness firsthand how she handles herself when the going gets rough.

Even so, Ryder isn’t denied his opportunity to play hero for his mate.  She’s in bigger trouble than she could ever suspect, with the Darkland Beasts who threaten humanity targeting her ranch.  Quick to scent the enemy, our intrepid hero sticks close by, doing whatever it takes to drive the threat away from his mate and her beloved ranch.

If he gets to stay close by the woman of his dreams in the meantime, well, that’s just an added bonus!  That paranormal instinct that draws a knight to his mate, as well as she to him, propels them into a steamy fling almost immediately, but it is the way they interact out of the bedroom that really builds their relationship.  Their mutual admiration for each other only grows with proximity until they finally realize their own happy ending together by the story’s end.

I am absolutely wild for RETURN OF THE BEAST!  For a tasty little tryst sure to whet your appetite for more in Lisa Renee Jones’ compelling THE KNIGHTS OF WHITE series, head to your favorite eBook store or the eHarlequin website and download your own copy of this hot little romance!
