Publisher's Summary

Even cursed blood can fall prey to love’s bite.

Lawrence Derrickson never wanted to be a chief, let alone a vampire, but fate has always been a fickle beast...callous to the inner-workings of a man’s heart.

Seven hundred years after he was turned, he’s still chief of Clan Karyn, although his clan now consists of only his three siblings. With no more castle to protect and defend, they are dedicated to only one cause - protecting the Cheld - their superhuman descendants. Lawrence longs for a different life - a life of his own passions, desires, and dreams - but duty drives him further from that with each passing century of protecting the Cheld. Until their mission brings him to Stone Haven. In saving a fledgling Cheld, Alessandra Fiore, he meets her best friend, Toni O’Neill, a human woman who seems to understand him better than anyone has in over ten lifetimes. Too bad she’s already taken.

Lawrence Derrickson is off limits. Or so Toni has been telling herself ever since the first time she saw him. Sure, Lawrence is a devastatingly handsome vampire, but she has a boyfriend - one who’s safe and comfortable, if not exciting or reliable or trustworthy. Besides, what would someone like Lawrence want with her? Toni’s fast approaching 30, and she still doesn’t know what she wants to be when she grows up. But her heart urges her to take a chance and leave her predicable life behind her to explore the inner-workings of Lawrence’s heart.

Lawrence feels he’s finally found a home, and the love of his long life in Toni, but trouble soon finds him in Stone Haven, forcing him to decide what matters most - desire or duty. Family or his own heart.

Fate can be a fickle, callous, evil tormentor....

The narration really adds to this story

Cursed with immortality, Lawrence Derrickson still holds the position of chief of Clan Karyn, a responsibility he never wanted. Although his clan now only includes his two siblings, they are committed to protecting the Cheld, descendants of his later brother with the potential to develop superhuman powers and become vampire hunters. In helping fledgling Cheld Alessandra Fiore, he met her best friend Toni O'Neill. Though he felt a connection to her, she already had a boyfriend.

Even though she's not a Cheld, Toni feels drawn to Lawrence as well but keeps telling herself he's off limits; she already has someone who's safe, if not particularly thrilling or even a great catch. Plus Lawrence is a vampire and that's sure to complicate any relationship.

Lawrence is starting to feel the weight of all the unwanted responsibility he has carried for years and he's ready to settle down. Toni is struggling with the approach of her 30th birthday and the fact that she still doesn't really know what to do with her life. But her boyfriend accepts her and doesn't judge her for never going to college and she's afraid to rock the boat. But she can't get Lawrence out of her head and he can't stop thinking about her either, so when he relationship comes to a screeching halt the sparks between them are inevitable. When danger threatens the peace Lawrence craves, he must decide if he's even really free to follow his heart over his duty.

I've never really been much of a paranormal reader until this series but I've loved it so far. I thought the idea of a rather reluctant heroine whose loyal to, if not necessarily in love with, someone else was an interesting angle to begin from. I loved both main characters when they appeared in the previous installment of the series and was rooting for them to be together. Lawrence's longing to have a home again reminds us that he's a vampire because of a terrible curse and after hundreds of years of leadership and that he's never quite gotten over the death of his older brother. Lawrence is tired and his need to be settled was very endearing, as was his determination to show Toni how she deserves to be treated. Toni's development of her sense of self-worth, and really just self in general, was fantastic. Of course Lawrence makes typical male mistakes, but he's so sweet and protective and good at apologizing that it's hard to stay mad at him.

This book was quite different from the first but no less enjoyable. I do think it leaves us with more loose ends than its predecessor did; there was definitely a lingering sense of some danger after I'd finished. I can't wait to see where this series goes next.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

good series

I liked that Toni had the strength to believe the truth when Tyler showed it to her. I enjoyed the fast pace of the story, and the quick connection between Toni and Lawrence. Lawrence was a bit too selfless to his own detriment . smh!! Good conclusion. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator brought it to life. Looking forward to more.

The Immortal's Salvation

I really enjoyed this book. No spoilers. I loved the romance. Also, the evolving storyline of the Cheld. I am eager to see how that aspect of the storyline evolves. Great read!

So good

There are so many new things going on. All the siblings have shown themselves. A new enemy has been introduced. A last minute revelation that makes you ready for the next book.

OMG!

OMG! I thought the first book in the series (The Vampire's Temptation) was hot with swoon-worthy Kenton. This book which features Lawrence is as panty-melting. Though Lawrence is the opposite of Kenton, you can't help but fall in love with him as well. He is so sweet and romantic but also very dangerous to his enemies. I thoroughly enjoyed his story. I cried for him and I cheered for him. And I can't wait for the next book in the series. Especially now that there is a mystery added. #TeamKenton and #TeamLawrence! And, as always, James Cavenaugh did a great job narrating!
