Everlasting Kiss

(Everlasting, Book #1)

by Amanda Ashley

Desire Never Dies

Daisy O’Donnell doesn’t get the attraction some women feel for vampires. She likes her men with a heartbeat. And she’s just met one who’s full of life: Erik Delacourt, the unreasonably sexy man she keeps meeting at a popular L.A. nightclub called the Crypt. She barely knows him, but there’s no resisting the connection she feels. . .

There’s one important detail Erik hasn’t gotten around to telling her yet. He’s a powerful vampire out to hunt the Blood Thief who is draining young vampires all over the city–and who has just raised the stakes by destroying one of Erik’s friends. To Erik, Daisy is a bright spot of innocence in a world of darkness and menace. He’ll do anything–even lie to her–to keep her safe and pure.

If only he knew that Daisy has something of her own to hide. . .

**Review: With just a touch of magic!

Daisy is a Blood Thief. Using a charmed compass made especially for her by her grandmother, she can find vampire lairs, break in, and drain some of their blood while they’re sleeping, and sell vials over the internet. To her, this is a normal way of life, coming from a family of vampire hunters. Besides, vampires are moralless, soulless creatures who hunt and kill humans. Turnabout is fair play. But she can’t kill them – to her, vampires were once human beings, and she can’t stomach the idea of staking them.

She meets Erik Delacourt at a club and is instantly attracted to him. She doesn’t know what it is about him, but she can’t forget him. They meet each other a few times, even go out on a date. Nothing shocks her more when she goes out hunting for another vampire to fill in some of her online orders when she happens upon Erik’s lair. Not only is he a vampire, but a warlock. Now she’s in over her head.

Erik to Daisy immediately. There’s just something about her that’s refreshing to him. He’s falling for her, and doesn’t know what to do about that. And now that Rhys, the Master of the West Coast, wants the Blood Thief found and dispatched, what is Erik going to do? Hand over the one woman in centuries who has gotten under his skin, or hand her over, as vampire law and the threat of treachery demand him?

But as luck would have it, her oldest brother, Alex, comes to town. A price of $200,000 for Rhys’s head is too much to resist. Hunting him down, Alex is attacked, and Daisy takes Alex to the only person who can help him – Erik. Now Rhys wants them both, Alex and Daisy, dead. What is Erik to do? Should he help hide Alex and Daisy and face Rhys’s wrath, or should he hand over the woman he’s fallen in love with, and the person who means very much to her?

**Great read! Although I found the story slow at the beginning, I thought it was only going to be the usual romance. However, a twist in the story brings up the heartbeat while you’re rooting for Erik and Daisy. And just when you think the story’s over, another twist and you’re itching to turn the page to find out if it ends well. LOL, the only thing bugging me right now is I’ll have to wait until October 2010 for Rhys’s story! Oh, Ms. Ashley, can’t you make it sooner? LOL!
