"A fine addtion to The "Forever" vampire series"
Antonia Stonewright moves from York to Bringham after
purchasing "Orchard House" from Dixie Marlowe (KISS ME
FOREVER) with the intention to open a gallery and craft
center. Centuries old, and jaded when it came to men,
Antonia thinks she's seen everything. What she hadn't known
when she paid a call to interview the talented but
reclusive town potter, Michael Langton, was that she'd be
meeting the local legend, or that she'd be losing her heart
to a shapeshifter. What on earth would Gwyltha think of
the infamous Surrey Puma as an addition to her colony? Not
that Antonia cared.......much.
Elizabeth (a.k.a. the ghoul Angela -- BE MINE FOREVER) has
accompanied Antonia to Bringham in order to assist her with
the renovations. With her memory now intact, Elizabeth is
no vamp's slave, something she's determined to prove to her
erstwhile lover, Tom Kyd, who had forbidden her to go. Tom
is out of sight for the moment, however he is not remotely
out of mind....or heart. Elizabeth is also a practicing
witch, and although the aura of the place holds lingering
evil from the previous inhabitants, she is drawn to
the "magic" garden and determines to make its restoration
her special project. She also stirs up the townsfolk when
she contacts members of the local coven to feel them out.
All seems well until Stella Corvus (LOVE ME
FOREVER) brings her son Sam up to visit his old babysister
(Elizabeth). While paying for gas, Stella's rental is
car-jacked with her beloved son inside. With her newly
vampire speed and strength, the thief is no match for the
irate mother. Stella and Sam arrive at Orchard House with a
mashed car and a bag of jewelry which was no doubt also
stolen. Justin and Tom come down to handle the both the
problem with the car and the stolen gems, leaving the
latter to be found by the vicar's wife. With nothing to tie
Stella and Sam to the crime all should be well once more.
nothing in Bringham is ever without complications, and when
a woman's body is found during the demolition of Orchard
House's old air raid shelter, Antonia and gang begin to
wonder if it had been wise to set foot in a town that had
held nothing but evil for their friends Dixie and Kit.
Where you find Gwyltha's colony, murder, mystery, and
mayhem are sure to follow and this time is no exception.
KEEP ME FOREVER is a fine addition to Ms. Laurey's vampire
series. It is always a pleasure to visit with "old
friends", but now that Antonia has found the love of her
lengthy life in the legendary and heroic Michael, have all
the ends been tied up at long last? Who knows? Perhaps the
adventures will go on FOREVER, this reviewer certainly

Rosemary Laurey is back with another wickedly delicious tale of love, lust, and the otherworldly with a new, and decidedly sexy, twist...
SOME GUYS ARE REAL ANIMALS...
Antonia Stonewright isn't about to change her views on love. A sexy mortal companion is fine every now and then, but a soul mate? A partner for life? Please. She was burned once, and hundreds of years haven't healed the wounds. But reclusive potter Michael Langton is...different. His gorgeous wares are perfect for her new art gallery-and his gorgeous body is perfect for her. She can't get enough of his toned muscles or his amazing, dark eyes. Their nights together make them both purr with pleasure-except in Michael's case, purring comes naturally. So much for finding a regular boyfriend. Antonia has a truly sexy beast on her hands...
