My Book Boyfriend (71)

My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme hosted by Missie of The Unread Reader, in which we swoon over boys in books!
(I--as in me, Amy--don't like to use commercial photos, I like to use the authors' descriptions and my imagination.)

Deacon Chalk
Book: Blood and Bullets by James R. Tuck 
Series: Deacon Chalk Occult Bounty Hunter

He's faster and stronger than a regular human, with near perfect night-vision, and he has a sense about magick and other things supernatural. Six feet-four inches tall, and topping the scales at 320lbs. of pure muscle, he towers over practically everyone. He's covered in tattoos. All kinds of tattoos, both arms are sleeved, including his hands and knuckles. Tattoos cover his chest, throat and the back of his head, which he keeps shaved. To sum up, he is a big, bald, tattooed, scary-looking dude with a goatee.


Why would a vampire even think that I would work for them? I'm a vampire hunter. I don't seek them out, but I've kiled every one of the evil bastards I've run into. Most people have a romantic view of vampires. They picture them as the eternal lover full of longing and dark passion. Thank you very much Hollywood, but that is not the way it is in real life.
Vampires never sparkle unless they just ate a stripper.

My face grew swollen and tight around my eyes. I felt the tears fill up and spill down my cheeks. They ran hot and salty down my face. I always miss my wife and children, but this stranger's kindness and sympathy had touched a knot of the sorrow I held deep inside and let it loose. My throat thickened and my heart felt like a stone as I let the sorrow and loss roll through me. Small hands smoothed along my head, cool and soft against the flush of my pain. The weight of her in my arms was a comfort.

"So if my boss was a vampire, then why didn't he try to bite me?"
I thought about my answer for a moment. "Oh, I am sure he would have gotten to it soon. You are pretty bite-able."
A blush crawled up her cheeks and came to stay for a minute. It made me grin.
