REDEMPTION FOR 'BAD BOY 'VAMPIRE LAURENT
on 3 February 2006
This is Laurents story, the rebellious Manticore Tribe vampire seen in I Hunger for you. Susan Sizemore combines her trademark fast paced narrative style with some red-hot love scenes in a book you won't want to put down.
Eden Faveau is from a long line of Vampire Hunters. She has never before taken on the role of hunter , and would rather be climbing volcanoes, but when she is called to action, she reluctantly obeys. Her family send her on an assignment to meet Sid Wolf, a Clan Prime, in order to fight the vicious Tribe vampires who are using a new drug called Dawn. It allows vampires to tolerate daylight, a worrying new development since previously, the only vampires who had access to daylight drugs were Clan and Family members; both groups are governed by strict rules designed to protect humans and vampires alike, unlike the Tribes, who see humans as strictly prey. So when a tall, blond and beautiful vampire turns up and fights the tribe vampires who ambush their meeting, she naturally assumes he is Sid Wolf.
Laurent, ever the opportunist, is happy to play along. He is on the run from Justinian, the leader of Tribe Manticore, with a laptop containing access to the Manticore's fortune. Unfortunately, he is not computer literate, but soon realises that Eden has the skills to unlock the laptop's secrets and make him very rich.
Eden takes Laurent to a safe house, whilst they track down the Dawn dealers. She has been warned about the fatal allure of vampires, and is on her guard, but soon the vampire Prime is getting underneath her skin and challenging her lifeheld beliefs about vampires. Things are not what they seem, and the electric attraction she finds increasing hard to fight is not her only problem. Laurent, meanwhile, is also getting worried- about the Tribe vampires determined to get back their property, about the whereabouts of the missing real Sid Wolf, the tantalising hints of his unkown past, and his increasing attraction to Eden. She is ruining his perfect, self cetered attitude to life, and when she is threatened by his enemies, he has to make a choice that will change his life forever, one way or another.....
