"Excellent vampire romance"
Cherise Novak is down on her luck. She's just been booted
from the show she created. She has no money. She's about
to be homeless, and her on again/off again mother (Tina)
has just stolen the last precious thing she owns. None of
this surprises Cherise very much. It's the story of her
life: hard knocks, neglect, and people who use her.
When a lawyer shows up after her mother disappears again,
she thinks Victor is playing a con on her for Tina. It's
awfully fishy that Tina shows up with a story about a dead
uncle Cherise has never heard of only moments before a
lawyer shows up announcing that Cherise is Albert
Novazcek's heir, but it all appears true. Cherise is
whisked away to a mansion and given free rein with all the
money left to her.
Then the bottom falls out. When Cherise finds the gardener
living in lush quarters in a locked wing of her home, she
wants an answer -- an answer she is not ready for. Jovan
is a vampire, and Cherise's inheritance is not the wealth,
cars, and money. Her inheritance is a deal made by a long,
ago ancestor. For generations, relatives born under the
sign of four sevens became the front for Jovan, allowing
him to remain hidden from society as his wealth and home
passed though the Novazcek family.
What starts as determination on Jovan's part to convince
Cherise to live to the contract quickly turns to something
more. Cherise is not what she seems in many ways. Though
Tina, as Cherise expected, had something up her sleeve
that could ruin life for Cherise and Jovan, there is no
denying that Cherise is destined for this man in a way
If you liked SHADOWS IN THE FIRE, you ain't seen nothing
yet. FULL MOON INHERITANCE takes you to new heights.
Jacqueline has really outdone herself this time. The
characters are engaging from Jovan and Cherise to the
secondaries like Victor and Rebecca.
Fate plays a hand in bringing Jovan the woman he needs to
be whole and Cherise what has been missing from her life,
though their road is not an easy one. It instills the
haunting belief that everything in life comes full circle.
This book is a new twist on the old idea of vampires, and
the contract between Jovan and the Novazcek family is an
inspired way for a vampire to stay hidden in the modern
