"hopefully the beginning of a lengthy series"

Atticus Maxwell is a centuries old being. Lissa is on her way to a business conference on the same shuttle bus. Lightning bolts go off, real lightning and at the same time the bus slides and rolls. Atticus saves them, although he is badly wounded and Lissa awakens in a cave beside him.

Atticus wants to make her his as much as Lissa wants the same but she has mortal friends who won't understand and he has an international wine company to run. The passion builds and then Lissa is attacked.

This short story is hopefully the beginning of a lengthy trip into vampires, hot sex and mortal women. It holds your attention but the abrupt ending sort of left me in the lurch. More! Now!

A deadly crash changes the fate of one lonely vampire.

Brotherhood of Blood, Book 1

Vampire enforcer Atticus Maxwell stands at the edge of his own oblivion…until the faint heartbeat of a desperately wounded mortal woman calls him back. The terrible crash that almost took both their lives has brought him a charming, intriguing woman who just might give him a reason to live again.

Lissa was headed for a conference at a resort in a last-ditch attempt to find a job. Instead, on a rain-slick mountain road that almost killed her, she finds the love of her life. A love with the most eligible, reclusive vineyard owner in Napa Valley—one that isn’t quite human.

No barrier—not even breaking the news to Lissa’s friends—seems too great to hold back their blossoming love. Until they learn the accident that brought them together wasn’t an accident at all, but a murder attempt by an unknown enemy.

Atticus saved Lissa once. Can he keep her that way in the face of a renewed threat?
