Promotional Post: The Case Of The Purple Pearl by Amber Kell & RJ Scott #Excerpt & #Giveaway

End Street Book 5: The Case of the Purple Pearl
By Amber Kell and RJ Scott
Due out 22nd November 2015

Blurb: After failing in a quest to win the Fae Queen’s approval, Halstein is locked in a world of stone. Forced to remain a gargoyle he spends his days on Sam’s desk pining for his lost love.

Prince Idris’s lover went missing and was presumed dead. Alone, Idris lives a life away from court, starved of energy but unwilling to sleep in the room he once shared with his beloved.

Can Sam and Bob save these fated lovers before it's too late? And will Bob’s ultimate sacrifice be enough to free Hal from his prison?

Smudge walked back into the room and jumped onto Sam’s desk He rubbed himself against Sam’s arm, spreading his scent.
The noise of stone against stone broke the quiet scene. “Who’s that?” a gravelly voice asked.
The gargoyle moved in shaky groaning increments to stand upright to its full twenty inches or so. He was looking down at the soul camera that lay screen up on the desk.
“Now you come out,” Sam said. “You realize I poked you three times.”
The gargoyle normally snarked back. He wasn’t known for his ability to say anything much in the way of nice. Bob didn’t like gargoyles unless they were inanimate and on the walls of a church. The lack of expression on the gargoyle’s face as it silently stared at the camera was freaky.
“Why do you have… is that…” In a sudden motion, the gargoyle crouched back into its stone shape and stilled.
“What the hell?” Sam poked it again with the same pen as before. No movement, none at all. “Is it just me or did he looked shocked.”
“He doesn’t have expressions,” Bob offered in support of why he hadn’t noticed.
Sam looked up at him disbelieving. “Yes he does, didn’t you see…” He trailed off. “Don’t tell me, I’m the only one that saw the shock and grief on the gargoyle’s face.”
Bob shrugged. “All I saw was stone and lidless eyes.” He shuddered. He hated those lidless eyes.
One more poke and Sam dropped the pen on the table. He returned to idly scratching Smudge behind his ears. Smudge purred, and Bob knew, given half a chance at having Sam scratching his ears, he’d probably be purring as well.
“Let’s have a closer look at this.” Sam rummaged one-handed in his drawer and pulled out a couple of cables. Examining them, he finally found one that slotted into his uncle’s camera then he pushed the other end into the ancient computer on his desk.
As the PC whirred and spluttered to life, Bob leaned over and pressed a kiss to Sam’s lips. “I love you,” he said.
Sam answered with a kiss of his own, and with Smudge twisting between them trying to find a comfy spot to park his furry butt, Bob kissed Sam with the same intensity as he had the first time.
