"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 most unexpected.

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 world.

First in the Delonte series

Trapped in the darkness of eternity, Jovan Delonte witnessed the world change, and the people he loved die. Along a dark stretch of road, he devised the perfect plan to live a life of luxury and freedom that will effect the future Novazcek generations to come. Jovan didn't expect the plan to lead him to the soul of his lost love three centuries later or to a woman who threatens everything precious to him.

Born and raised in poverty, Cherise Novack easily adapted to the mansion and money she inherited from a deceased relative. Little does she know the mansion holds a secret that could destroy her. When Cherise learns of a centuries old pact and that she is a pawn in a well-planned plot of greed and deception, she learns everything is not as it seems. Will the love of dark and mysterious Jovan save her? Or will it be the end of life as she knows it?
