With their romance only beginning to take root, the trio, Anya, Nicholas and Declán set forth to enrich their fledgling relationship. Having survived the explosive consummation should have set forth a down time of sorts, instead, near death tragedies strike all around.
That should have been the worst of it, but toss the green-eyed monster of jealousy and all bets are off that anyone will survive the fire consuming them all.
Can Anya protect her lovers, find peace within herself, and lead the House Millar from tragedy to peace? Or will those waiting in the wings to strike them down win?
Come take a walk with our loving family and witness the strange turns and twists as life, love, and passions collide with greed, politics, and evil.
“What’s troubling your thoughts, love,” Nicholas murmured. It truly seemed to bother him that I’d insisted he not be allowed in my head continually. When I didn’t immediately respond, he pulled me closer into his strong arms. “Penny for your thoughts, Miss?”
The spill of the falls roared in the distance and warm summer rain pattered against leaves on the ground, soothing and encasing us in another world. The sights, the sounds, the very feel of nature around us invigorated and enchanted.
Nicholas had been persistent about taking me on a camping trip since it would allow us complete privacy from the constant din at home and, I think, just for the fun of it. I sighed contentedly in his arms. I didn’t want to move from that spot–being able to just ‘be’ was so nice for a change.
As he trailed his long fingers along my side, he leaned in and kissed my ear. He loved sending shivers up my spine; little else seemed to please him as much as my joy and pleasure in even such a simple act.
“I was just thinking about how we’re supposed to return soon, and I’m not ready to go home yet.” Turning to face him, I nuzzled tighter into his side as I struggled to find my centre.
“We don’t have to go home yet, Anya. They can handle things a little longer.” His lips against my throat sent chills of pleasure and craving through me.
Not fair! Focus.
“Hiding won’t help me though. I’m less prepared to deal with my relationship with Declán then when you first found me. You’re jealous of Louie, which I still insist is silly since I don’t even remember him. Besides, he’s very happy with Simon. Your parents want to groom me as if I’m some form of royalty. Oh yes, and you and Geoff are getting on my last nerve about wanting to train me.” I could not seem to make even him understand what it was like to fight. “I don’t want to hurt any of you.”
Awakening to a new world of blood and fear, Anya Millar sets forth on a path of discovery. One which will hopefully uncover clues to her past. Little did she know she was on a cataclysmic collision course into the world of the undead as well as nocturnal love ripe for the history books.
Nicholas defends his grounds and the humans within it with a fury unmatched to find and win back the object of his eternal love, before harm does. He never counted on complications of the heart or the new cravings taking him to the brink of madness.
Declan is a natural born vampire hunter, a Guardian. When he stumbles into the path of Anya and Nicholas, his heart rules him without hesitation...
Sometimes fate has a wicked sense of sensibility.
