NetGalley - Beyond Human Nouvella's #1 "A Vampire's Salvation" by Virna DePaul
Jacob La Costa Rios is the head of the California governor’s security team; he’s also a vampire who wants the governor, a presidential hopeful, to support the peaceful integration of vampires into human society. Unfortunately, there are others who oppose Jake’s plan. Plus, Jake’s a little distracted by discovering his one true mate, the human female who can give him everything he’s always wanted: love, children, and continuing immortality. Francesca Marie Stewart is the governor’s “go-green” political consultant.
Although she’s been attracted to Jake from day one, her priority is her career and protecting her heart. But then Jake blatantly propositions her and Frankie, who hasn’t experienced sexual intimacy since she was seventeen-years-old, decides it’s time to take what she wants—within reason. No matter—once Jake makes love to Frankie, he knows reason will be the farthest thing from her mind. Then he just has to eliminate the person threatening her, reveal the fact he’s a vampire, and convince her that trusting him will bring both of them eternal happiness.
Lately I've read some short Novella's that have fed my love for hot and steamy encounters and things that go bump in the night.
This stories are a refreshing new introduction to new author's that I've not read yet or to sound names of the industry that are in my TBR pile.
Today I'm bringing you a story that I liked very much and a new series that could be a lot of fun for us to read.
The author had the ability to write a story that entails politics, a hidden race, some freaking hot vampires, a wounded soul learning to love again and one hot alpha vampire to take care of her.
Even though this is short, there are no flaws and no confusions in this action paced narrative.
The only thing that I would like to have continued to see played out was Frankie's and Jake's relationship after the end of the book.
Now facts on our heroine, Frankie ...
She has a trust issue with men, her last boyfriend let her down on the worst way possible so after being attracted by Jake and weaving an impossible relationship in her mind, she decides to put an end to it.
When Jake, after all the months that has almost ignored her, turns his attention to her she is surprised but she does jump to the opportunity of having her desires met.
In my point of view, Frankie was a little stuck up in the moment kind of thing, but overall understandable because of her past experience.
She never ran from Jake, even if he was a vampire, and learned to face a whole new life and some added responsibility in the end.
Vampire Jake is our alpha hero.
How I love vampires and their alpha attitudes with those deep souls and the speech "you are mine" given in the young hours of dawn to their mates. Jake was no different.
He knows that he can't resist any longer to Frankie and even though he tries to go slow, he simply can't. How sweet ....
If there could be guys out there like Jake, save me one!
If you love Paranormal Romance with suspense and action, this is the perfect series for you, give it a try.
