"Fantastic vampire romance"


South Carolinian librarian Dixie LaPage travels to England to look over her recent inheritance, the Orchard House in Bringham. Dixie hopes the time in England will help her recover form the death of her grandmother and perhaps learn more about the Underwood side of her ancestors, especially since her great aunts whom she never met bequeathed the old cottage to her.

However, her idyll time is disturbed as her English family's solicitor Sebastian Caughliegh wants to obtain the secrets of the Underwoods. Sebastian, a head of a local coven, knows that Dixie's great aunts used Wicca powers to heal, but then utilized more mundane powers to blackmail their patients. He will kill anyone, including Dixie, to obtain those secrets.

Vampire Kit Marlowe shocks even himself when he finds the mortal American so appealing that he wants more than just a tasty morsel. He becomes her protector from Sebastian and his witches. However, Dixie not only reciprocates Kit's feelings, she tries to keep him safe from the coven. If they survive the local witches, will their love endure too?

KISS ME FOREVER is a well-written supernatural romance that requires the reader to allow their imagination to flow with the plot. The story line is exciting, filled with non-stop action, and Rosemary Laurey hinting at intriguing pasts for several key characters deserving their own tales. Kit, who is actually Shakespearean age writer Christopher Marlowe, shows how creative and willing to take a risk Ms. Laurey is by casting a real historical figure as a vampire and male love interest. However, this novel belongs to the intrepid Dixie, who in danger and love goes where the brave dare not go.


Justin Corvus once was a regimental surgeon in the ninth Roman Legion Hispania, but now has a medical practice in modern day England. He is also a millennium old master vampire who has come to a German village in Columbus, Ohio to meet with his old friend Kit Marlowe and his wife Dixie. Justin also has to negotiate territory for the New World vampire colony with Vlad Tepes, otherwise known as Dracula.

While playing shopkeeper in Dixie's shop, he meets the beautiful mortal woman Stella and her eight-year-old son Sam. In the very first moments of their first meeting, both feel an electrical attraction to one another. At first Justin is not going to pursue her beyond the time he is to return home but circumstance force him to turn her into a vampire. Even when she makes the adjustment, they have heavy-duty problems to work out if they mean to spend eternity together.

Fans of romance and the supernatural will love LOVE ME FOREVER, the fantastic sequel to KISS ME FOREVER. The vampires of ROSEMARY Laurey's creation are urbane, witty and easy to fall in love with. Their mates are their equals in every way, which makes for some amusing "discussions" when one doesn't agree with the other. Ms. Laurey is a talent that should be on every vampire fan's "must read" list.

Dixie LePage didn't expect life in an English village to be exactly like South Carolina but nothing prepared her for what she found in the quiet little village of Bringham. Discovering blackmail and murder horrified her. The attempts on her life angered and terrified her. But it was falling in love with a 400-year old vampire, the not so dead Christopher Marlowe, that taught her the full meaning of 'culture shock'

Kiss Me Forever is set in the fictional Surrey village of Bringham- somewhat like the village I grew up in, but minus the witches and the vampires.

Justin Corvus, one-time regimental surgeon to the Ninth Roman Legion Hispania and present-day physician and vampire, travels to Ohio to visit his fellow vampires Kit Marlowe and Dixie LePage. While visiting them, he meets Stella, a blue-collar single mother, who doesn't have much time for men, and even less for a rich, Brit, doctor. But neither Justin nor Stella expected the attraction between them, or the act of violence that puts Justin afoul of the vampire code he helped establish.
