Since we shouldn’t spend all summer watching The Bachelorette and flipping through Kim Kardashian’s selfie book, here are May’s paranormal romance offerings.
Chaos and Moonlight by A.D. Marrow
The Nines, an elite group of vampires, was established to stand as protection for their race. Fractured by centuries of betrayal and loss, the group is now little more than myth, its remaining members scarred and shattered.
Taris, the oldest living vampire, is no stranger to loss and heartbreak. He is all that holds the Nines together as they struggle to save themselves from total extinction.
Enter the beautiful and brilliant Dr. Sarah Bridgeman, whose medical research has resulted in a breakthrough for both humans and vampires. Her work may be the salvation this weary band of guardians has been looking for.
Taris needs to reach Sarah and enlist her help—before those aligned against him can act. Can a vampire king convince a stunning young scientist to save a species that isn’t even supposed to exist?
For now, only one thing is certain: no science can explain the explosive chemistry between them.
Anyone thinking that vampire romance is a declining “trend” needs to dive into this endearingly quirky debut offering from A.D Marrow. This is a gritty, vivid world where vampires face a dark threat; a genetic fertility crisis makes them unable to turn or birth new members of their species. Warrior vampire Taris is determined to use human Sarah’s new medical breakthrough to save the day and find a vampy fertility cure. Expect some serious chemistry both in and outside the lab here. Sarah is one smart doc, more than a match for sexy Taris who has mastered that brooding vampire thing. Oh, and did I mention the bitch-tastic villain? Awesome. There’s a cool smorgasbord of secondary characters and there are some hints about vamps in search of love in future books. Black Dagger Brotherhood and Immortals After Dark fans in search of a fix should definitely check out the Nines.
