Awesome New Series - Fabulous Paranormal
on March 19, 2006
OH, MY GOD! Paranormal romance lovers alert! There is a new kid on the block and her world of Valkyrie’s, Lykae’s, Vampire’s and Shapeshifters is going to knock your socks off!
Enduring decades of torture from the vampire horde, Lachlain MacRieve senses that his predestined ‘mate’, whom he’s waited for over a thousand years, is near. Her scent is strong, but before he loses it forever he draws on a long-held reserve of strength to break free from the chains that have held him in the fires of a vampire’s hell. He follows the scent of his mate, unable to fully comprehend the mate he’s waited centuries for is a vampire. His only thought is to take the delicate golden haired beauty to his lair, a Scottish castle hidden away in the Highlands where he can slake his overwhelming lust and claim her for his own.
Emmaline of Troy, in all her life has never fit in! Sheltered and hidden most of her life, this little Halfling was raised in a Valkyrie coven and had never even seen another vampire. All she knew about Lakaes and Vampires were they were mortal enemies to the Valkyrie. Gentle, easily frightened, but determined to uncover the truth of her lineage, her one foray away from the coven and she is captured by a wildly handsome, and frighteningly strange man making outlandish claims that she’s his ‘mate’! Bizarre as it seemed to Emmaline, it was even more bizarre to Lachlain that his mate would be a half-vampire, half-Valkyrie yet he would fight anyone who dared to try to take the woman he’d waited centuries to find.
*** Not much more can be said other than to shout it out - TREMENDOUS !! Cole has kick started an awesome new series by creating an amazing alternate reality world filled with extraordinary characters, thrilling action, danger, humor and phenomenal sensuality. This is an author you would do well to put on ‘auto buy’ status. This paranormal debut by Kresley Cole is ‘smoking’ and I can’t wait for further episodes to emerge!
