Deb Marshall is a twenty-year-old girl just like you and me. She was going to college and looking forward to a career as an investigative reporter when tragedy happened. She died in the road accident that killed her parents.
Now she lives with her Uncle in the sleepy town of Rookby. Stuck in a wheelchair, she believes her career is over and the adventures and excitement she craved are gone. Yet every night she dreams of one man. Tall, dark, handsome in one dream he starts as her savior, but the dreams usually end in terror if only she could remember. In the other, she enjoys romance and passion with him that curls her toes and leaves her wanting more. Who is he and what do the dreams mean?
Deb's life changes once again when he turns up at her house and she must discover what Vincent Fox wants and why he believes she is in danger?
He teaches her that she has a dark side. And tells her very few, including her uncle can ever learn about it. But he does not tell her why she is in danger and that some believe she will destroy his race.
At just a thought, Deb's hair changes from brunette to black, she is able to stand and move around faster than any normal woman.
By the way, did I mention she is a vampire?
But Deb is a vampire like no other. She is a disabled woman, but a very able vampire. She intends to use her abilities to interview and glamour the evil in her town, putting right the wrongs they have done? But someone is watching her and they want her dead. Can Vincent keep her safe, should she trust him and is she the one that they are all looking for?
My Thoughts - Story
I promise I’m not being biased with this story, but I enjoyed the unique concept of a vampire story. This isn’t like the cookie cutter PNR books out there. What happens when a vampire is right in the middle of turning a pretty girl whose spine has been severed? A girl who is on the brink of death and is interrupted by the paramedics?
Deb is learning to cope being paralyzed from the waist down – it’s been 2 years since the accident….2 years of being in a wheelchair and trying to come to terms with what life has to offer her.
But things take a sudden change when she suddenly gets tinges of feeling…and realizes there are two gorgeous vampire dudes following her every move.
