"A new and refreshing twist on vampires"

Alexander Faustin is a down to earth, Brooklyn born vampire. He has always wondered what it would be like to be human and has even pretended to be as a child. Never one to settle for second best, he has never married or fallen in love; because he knows that his one true love is out there just waiting for him. When his Russian mother dreams about his destined mate, she gives him just enough information to find her. Now, it is left up to him to find her and make her love him, and agree to be converted to a vampire.

After several really bad relationships, Helena is prepared to be alone the rest of her life. When the handsome and mysterious Alex shows up on her doorstep one night, her life will never be the same. Helena must learn to love and trust Alex or their relationship will never work.

Evie Byrne has put a new spin on vampires. Alex comes from a normal family and is not hundreds of years old. Every bit of the story was refreshing, including watching Alex stumble around and make stupid mistakes that could cost him his life mate. Helena, a truly sweet lady, has had a hard time, after a really bad long term relationship and the sudden loss of both of her parents a year ago. Helena discovered a lot about herself in the story, which was a touching sight to see. If you enjoy erotic vampire romance, then I highly recommend Called by Blood to you.

Bowing to family tradition, Alex Faustin travels from NYC to Colorado to track down his soul-mate, Helena MacAllister, and convince her to be his bride. There are only two hitches in this plan. The first is that Helena and he are complete strangers. The second is that Alex is a vampire.

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Red Hots!
Length: Novella

Warning: Contains graphic sex scenes, blood play, and one scene of voyeurism. Thereís also a scary part in the middle. The author and her lawyers remind you that this is a work of fiction. In real life, a one-night stand with a stalker is a bad idea, unless the stalker is a vampire, in which case itís an amazingly bad idea. (Note: No actual elk were harmed in the writing of this novella.)
