What if the person being changed is actually a thousand-year-old vampire who is quite happy with his life the way it is, that is until a certain woman shoves her way into it and threatens his livelihood and his very existence.
The theme of redemption is one I wanted to explore in my latest Samhain Publishing release—Damek’s Redemption. Damek is a vampire who is a loner by nature and choice. His only friends are a pack of werewolves and they are more close acquaintances than actual friends. Damek suspects they’d turn on him in a heartbeat if it meant saving their own skins. He expects betrayal at every turn and has insulated himself against the possibility over the years.
Damek is a creature of great power and struggles each passing year to retain a shred of his humanity. Most days he doesn’t even believe there is anything there to try to hold on to. Sonia Agostino is a creature of light and love. She is close to her family and trusts them implicitly. She knows she can always depend on them to have her back. When the two of them meet, their beliefs and ideals collide. Add in the sizzling hot sexual attraction between them and you have a recipe for one hot romance.
When old enemies and betrayal put them too the test, will Damek revert to his old mistrustful ways and destroy his one chance for love? Or will Sonia’s trust and belief in him and in love show him the path to redemption?
Legacy, Book 6
Myths and legends are more than just passing interests for Sonia Agostino. She holds degrees in folklore and anthropology, and she comes from a family of Keepers, humans charged with helping paranormal creatures survive in the modern world.
Recently, her research—and her intuition—have led her to Chicago’s Inhibitions nightclub. Its enigmatic owner, known only as Damek, could be the one paranormal creature she has never seen. A vampire. Except he won’t see her.
Damek has good reason to refuse an audience with Sonia. One look at her and his gut reaction is she’s a serious threat to the simple, highly disciplined routine that keeps his bloodlust in check. Worse, she has unwittingly led vampire hunters far too close for comfort.
Yet when she stubbornly shows up at the nightclub a second time, he cannot refuse her. The force of their attraction explodes with erotic power—and danger. For when Sonia discovers that her suspicions were true, she finds her loyalties unexpectedly tested. And her choice will forever change both their lives.
Do you believe in redemption?
N.J. has always been a voracious reader, and now she spends her days writing novels of her own. Vampires, werewolves, dragons, time-travelers, seductive handymen, and next-door neighbors with smoldering good looks—all vie for her attention. It’s a tough life, but someone’s got to live it.
