"What to do when falling in love is a Catch-22? - An incredible Vampire Romantic Suspense!"
It is said that Hell has no fury like a woman scorned. But I
think the Wolvesrain Curse, begun on the night of the
Equinox over two and a half centuries ago by a young gypsy
woman done wrong, may just prove that adage wrong. In
conjuring her curse upon her faithless lover and his
betrothed she had called down the demon Asmos to plague the
condescending Amelia of Wolvesrain and all of her future
heirs. They would only find love long enough to destroy it.
Damien Hancock had been reborn that night. Vampires had
gathered to feed on the demon essence Camilla had called
down. The vampires had destroyed what Camilla's wolves
hadn't, decimating the gyspy clan as well. Damien and his
brother Nicholai had become vampires that night while their
two sisters had been murdered.
Damien, determined to keep his soul pure, had never tasted a
drop of human blood. He had gone to work for the Cadre and
had become a demon hunter instead. There he'd learned
control over his own demons and had captured many others.
But the last demon he had hunted had been too powerful and
had claimed his partner Cara. The timing had been off on the
exorcism he had performed on her, leaving Cara an empty
shell. It was then that he and the Cadre had parted ways.
Now they were calling on him again, claiming a special
circumstance, to protect the latest of Amelia's heirs, Emma
McGovern, the last of her line. The Cadre believes that
Asmos was hailed from the same demon world as the demon who
had claimed Cara.
Damien agrees to meet with Emma, but is surprised by the
strong feelings she generates in him. She is drawn to him as
well. He is the vulnerable alpha male no woman can resist.
She is the classic damsel in distress. Neither had ever
expected to experience love, he because he believes he is a
monster, she because of the family curse. He alone sees her
beauty, not her scars. She sees into his heart and trusts
him. But is this love true, or is it Asmos luring them to
As the Equinox returns, the wolves have already returned
home to Wolvesrain and with them the vampire clan that feeds
on the demon's essence. Among them is Damien's brother. The
essence has made Nicholai far stronger than Damien. He has
his work cut out if he wants to save his beloved. But the
true danger is from Damien himself, for if he follows his
heart they are both doomed.
RISING DARKNESS is an incredible paranormal romantic
suspense that will keep the readers on the edges of their
seats, rooting for the courageous pair of star-crossed
lovers until the very last page. I highly recommend this
read which is the second title in the Dark Enchantments
