Product Description

Product Description

One man’s obsession will destroy her world.

Mia loves her fiancé Oliver, however after a chance encounter with his new employer Mr Breckt- the mysterious new owner of The Island, her thoughts are constantly consumed with the handsome and powerful stranger. But there is much more to her fixation of him than she realises.

Mr Breckt is a hundred year old vampire, and he isn't used to being told no.
He could take her at any time, but his ego insists that she wants him of her own freewill. With his obsession spiralling out of control, he finds her body, her mind, and most importantly her blood continuously calling to him, and the more she fights him, the more he wants her. Could his own narcissism be his downfall?

Mia finds herself at the centre of a struggle that she can’t resist nor understand. Caught between life and death, hope and fear, love and lust. Ultimately, she will have to make a sacrifice that will affect everyone. But no matter what choices are made, Mia could still lose.

Limerence is a dark story of love, lust, and obsession.

5.0 out of 5 stars Filthy and dark...in the best possible ways! 16 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's sort of difficult to talk about vampires these days without mentioning Twilight...so let's just get that out of the way straight away.

This. Isn't. Twilight. And that's a really, really good thing.

At first glance, Riley's novel is an "erotically charged" novel that just happens to have vampires; but even saying "erotically charged" feels wrong (and sort of dirty...but in the good way.) That changes once the first dead body appears on the page (and don't worry; you don't have to wait too long.) What follows is a sensual fable of lust, desire, sex, love and how they all come together. And that sometimes, they don't go hand-in-hand.

Riley breathes refreshing life into Mia Lawrence, a likeably flawed protagonist, likeable mostly because of her acknowledgement and self-awareness of her many flaws; although she's engaged and happily in love, she finds herself mysteriously drawn to Mr. Breckt. Breckt is the dark, dashing stranger that forms the backbone of gothic romance novels like this, but there's a problem: Breckt (like the novel) is more dangerous than Mia could ever imagine...and more dangerous than this reader imagined too.

By moving the narrative voice between Mia and Breckt (and occasionally some other characters too), Riley creates a compelling cast and a dark, twisted narrative. We're forced to care for Mia because of what we know (and what she doesn't), but we WANT to care for her; Mia's struggles embody the battle between ego, superego and id that vampires play in modern fiction. And Breckt...well, I'm glad that I didn't like him; Riley's vampire is less Edward Cullen and more akin to the psychological torture and uncomfortable sexuality that most people forget about when they think of Wuthering Heights. And it really works for this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great start to a new series 1 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
REVIEW: LIMERENCE is the first storyline in Claire C Riley's new Limerence series written in a combination of genres-paranormal, urban fantasy, thriller and suspense. The storyline follows the obsession of a powerful vampire and his need to make the beautiful human female his own. But what ensues is a twisted tale of wants versus needs; love versus hate; obsession versus death. The storyline is dark, dangerous and a little disturbing as Robert Breckt stalks, compels, mystifies and eventually destroys the very thing he wants.

We watch as our heroine Mia, who is desperately in love with her fiancé Oliver, fight the compulsion and attraction to one of the most beautiful and seductive men she has ever met. But Robert Breckt is not what he appears to be. His desires, his needs, his body and his soul want Mia and no one else. This is not a story of one's man burning love for the female of his dreams, but one man's obsession with the only woman he cannot have or control.

Throughout the storyline we are pulled in as Mia's relationship with her fiancé falters when the building compulsion to find Mr. Breckt interferes in their daily lives and, we watch as Oliver sets into motion a series of events in which everyone will suffer in the end.

LIMERENCE is a well-written, engaging, obsessively dark and fascinating storyline of obsession, love and revenge. Limerence is the story of Mia's transformation from a loving human female to a predator without any remorse.

"I'm a vampire."

"A hunter."

"A temptress."

"I'm not going to be the good girl any longer."

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read instant classic!!! 28 Mar 2013
By JR
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A Fantastic debut novel that keeps you guessing to the end then leaves you screaming out for more,
An excellent twist on an age old tale and a lot of very well written characters where the lines between love,hate and despise constantly shift from chapter to chapter.
An easy 5 stars and a must read
