You need to read this series to find out about this new twist on vampires.
The Immortal’s Salvation is the second in this new series. (There is also a prequel which is well worth reading which you can get free from Cecelia’s website).
As with the first book I was hooked from the beginning.
This is the story of Toni and Lawrence who we met in the first book. Lawrence is a 700 year old vampire but not the sort we all know about – he is a good guy who protects rather than kills.
This is a stand alone story but I think it best to read book one first so you get to know all that went on before this book.
I received a free copy of this book which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Even cursed blood can fall prey to love’s bite.
Lawrence Derrickson never wanted to be a chief, let alone a vampire, but fate has always been a fickle beast…callous to the inner-workings of a man’s heart.
Seven hundred years after he was turned, he’s still chief of Clan Karyn, although his clan now consists of only his three siblings. With no more castle to protect and defend, they are dedicated to only one cause—protecting the Cheld—their superhuman descendants.
Lawrence longs for a different life—a life of his own passions, desires, and dreams—but duty drives him further from that with each passing century of protecting the Cheld. Until their mission brings him to Stone Haven. In saving a fledgling Cheld, Alessandra Fiore, he meets her best friend, Toni O’Neill, a human woman who seems to understand him better than anyone has in over ten lifetimes. Too bad she’s already taken.
Lawrence Derrickson is off limits. Or so Toni has been telling herself ever since the first time she saw him. Sure, Lawrence is a devastatingly handsome vampire, but she has a boyfriend—one who’s safe and comfortable, if not exciting or reliable or trustworthy. Besides, what would someone like Lawrence want with her? Toni’s fast approaching thirty, and she still doesn’t know what she wants to be when she grows up. But her heart urges her to take a chance and leave her predicable life behind her to explore the inner-workings of Lawrence’s heart.
Lawrence feels he’s finally found a home, and the love of his long life in Toni, but trouble soon finds him in Stone Haven, forcing him to decide what matters most—desire or duty. Family or his own heart.
Fate can be a fickle, callous, evil tormentor…
Although the prologue to THE IMMORTAL'S SALVATION is set in medieval Scotland with its hero once a Scottish clan chief, it is a steamy contemporary vampire romance with an HEA. Fans of Elizabeth Hunter, Jeaniene Frost and Lynsay Sands may enjoy this paranormal romance series.
