"Extremely hot, fast paced story that will leave you breathless"

Jo Carter has an addiction she must fulfill for five days out of the month. She is a raving sex addict and she craves any male around her. The only thing that takes her mind off of ripping some mans pants off is to jog alone in the woods until her body is ready to drop. On one of Jo's jaunts through the woods she takes an awful tumble into a cave and breaks her foot. While stranded in the cave Jo finds a gorgeous man lying against the wall with a silver knife hanging out of his chest, compelled to help this dying man she helps him pull the knife from his chest. Alek weakens as the blood spills from him profusely, after trying everything in her power to stop the bleeding, Jo thinks Alek is dead.

Determined to get out of the cave, Jo displays her own hidden ability; she can heal herself by closing her eyes and thinking about her wound. When Jo comes to after healing herself she realizes Alek is not dead and there is something that she can do to help him; he professes to her that he is a vampire and he needs her blood to survive. Jo seems to accept the fact that Alek is vampire and she allows Alek to feed from her. However, when he feeds from her the shooting pain comes back into her foot and she feels weakened. Jo decides to try to heal herself again but now Alek is the one to feel the pain and is weakened. He convinces her he needs one more drink, if his strength comes back he can get them both out of the cave.

After the healing process is over, Jo gives into her cravings and she and Alek have sex. After hours of sex with Jo, Alek tries to brainwash her to make her forget about him and all that happened that day. The brainwashing however, did not work. Her sister later arrives to break the news that Jo is not Jo Carter after all, she is Joceline Randolph. After the visit with her sister, Jo starts noticing strange things happening around her, dogs follow her around, her shrink, Max, has an ever growing infatuation with her, and through all of this, she is bound and determined to find out who her real parents are.

Immediately after her encounter with Alek, the gorgeous vampire, strangers begin following Jo all around. She assumes that these people want to know more about Alek and how to find him. It is only after Jo seeks out her father, that she realizes the strangers are after her as well.

Jo and Alek want to be together more than anything. However being together is hard because of the people always after them. Can they find a way to safely be with each other? And can Jo unlock the secrets of her past to help her future?

Falling for you is a lust filled, erotic romance that excites the reader throughout. With an intriguing plot and exciting characters, this book has a lot to offer. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story and I am sure other readers will as well.

She lives for the moon.

Every month, for five days around the full moon, Jo has the overwhelming urge to jump almost every male she sees. Convinced she's gone crazy, she seeks medical help but finds none. All she can do to stop the hunger is run. One wrong step and Jo's life plummets in a direction she didn't expect. She falls into the lair of a badly injured vampire.

He lives for the night.

Alek can't believe the angel who's dropped from the sky. With a knife wedged in his chest and too weak to move, he'd given up and is waiting for sunrise. But when the beautiful jogger crashes into his lair, Alek finds more than a way to survive -- he finds a reason for doing so.

Every dog has his day.

Lyall, alpha werewolf, wants Alek dead so he can take his land. He wants Jo alive to breed more wolves. But Lyall hasn't reckoned on the power of love. Annoying Alek is a big mistake. Annoying Jo could be fatal.
