"a dark and passionate read"
To Naomi McElroy, family meant everything. Taking care of
your family, the house; that is what was embedded in her.
But inside Naomi dreamed and wanted more. So when they
came and found Naomi she was ripe for the picking. She was
seduced in a beautiful garden under the full moon. And on
that night and under the full moon, she became someone
else, someone that thrived on the hungers of blood, and
the erotic nature of the taste of blood, the Undead. She
now lives with the hungers for blood that will never go
away. She is no longer known as Naomi McElroy, but as
Belle. She now has a new family, a vampire family. They
all share the ups and the downs of the struggle and need
In Belle's new life she craves and needs desire and
passion to thrive. Belle is drawn to this new life, but
she also hates the new way of life she is living. The joys
of the way her body has changed and grown, the way she now
has such strong senses, the strength of her new body, the
way other sicknesses could have killed her, now they
can't. Her new lover, Silvija, can give Belle what no
other can; the feeling of what skin to skin connection
with a lover that knows what you need and crave. The pains
of betrayals from ones you thought you knew, the pain of
losing ones you love; this all comes with Belle's new
life. Can Belle, with the help of her new clan, come
through these rough times, and deal with the loss the
people and the life she had?
Oh "WOW", I want more by this author! The way she wrote
this story was so passionate that I couldn't put it down.
I will be reading the others before this story to get a
chance to see where this all came from. I loved Belle. The
way Fiona wrote the soft side of Belle but then also
her "Kick Ass" side that will not allow you to hurt anyone
she loves drew me like no book has in a long time. This
author is going places, and straight to the number one

Pleasure without limits.
Desire without rules.
Love without mercy.
Naomi McElroy's life in Jamaica has always been about the comforts of family and home. But secretly, she yearns for something more. When she surrenders to seduction in a jasmine—scented garden under a full moon, her life is changed forever. In that moment of complete ecstasy, Naomi becomes Belle, one of the undead whose carnal hungers are never sated.
Now Belle is part of a vampire clan, lost in an existence that strips away all pretenses and lays bare the deep, dark hungers within every soul. But first she must be taught. Through the feel of skin pressed against skin and the skilled manipulations of a powerful lover, Belle craves desire every waking moment. A part of her hates her new life, but another part revels in it—the savagery of her senses, the sway of her body, and the sensual decadence of her new family. What Belle finally feels is a sexual connection like no other she's experienced.
But in this exciting new world, there are many dangers that are best left untouched—and dangers that are too intoxicating and enticing to resist.
