"Great Vampire Tale!"
Sitting in Club Inferno with some of his friends, vampire
Raphael Chamberlain informs them he has finally found his
lost love, Elizabeth. Centuries ago, Raphael managed to win
Elizabeth's heart, and on their wedding night, she, along
with the unborn child she carried, were killed before his
eyes. This was also the night he became a vampire. When he
managed to escape Zakara's clutches, along with six of his
friends, he began searching for Elizabeth, hoping to find
her. Now he has, and he has no intention of ever letting
Elizabeth Quartermaine has never been happy with her
appearance. Slightly overweight and with mousy brown hair
and eyes, she's been considering changing it for quite some
time, but never had the courage. She also dresses in a
rather dowdy fashion. Imagine Elizabeth's surprise when she
finds out the professor she's going to be teaching history
with is an exceedingly handsome man, and is interested in
her. This provides the impetus Elizabeth needs to go get
her hair colored and try colored contacts. She also
splurges on a new wardrobe.
After losing Raphael, Zakara has determined to get him
back. No other man has been able to satisfy her and she
plans on his ruling by her side.
Will Raphael be able to keep Elizabeth safe from Zakara?
Will he manage to stay out of Zakara's clutches? What of
Elizabeth, will she agree to stay with Raphael?
THE UNFORGIVEN: RAPHAEL is a wonderful introduction to an
upcoming series of books by Tracy L. Ranson. Even though
this book is a departure for an author of historical
stories, Tracy Ranson manages to write a very good
contemporary vampire romance. From the alpha Raphael,
willing to do whatever it takes to keep Elizabeth at his
side, to our heroine, dealing with self-confidence issues.
We are also introduced to Raphael's friends, characters in
themselves. If you're in the mood for a good vampire story,
I highly recommend THE UNFORGIVEN: RAPHAEL.
