"A fresh new twist on the seduction of vampires."
Byron has spent all of his nearly four hundred years
climbing the vampire social ladder. He held the honorable
position of Treasurer of his Clan for two centuries before
finally becoming a Dominie. He is a vampire, immortal, and
he does what he wants, when he wants.
Byron also knows that he must not socialize much with
humans. He lives his life mostly in solitary, because he
cannot risk making the mistake of mating with a human like
his father. Then temptation arrives on his island and she
is stranded for a few days.
Violet is intelligent and witty, beautiful and outspoken,
and totally off limits to Byron. He will not allow himself
to become involved, and his Clan forbids relationships
between vampires and humans.
The Claim is the first in the Forbidden series and
is written in Byron's point of view. Samantha Sommersby
has created a new twist on vampires, making them more
infatuating than ever before. Combine that twist with some
powerful characters such as Byron, who has a humorous and
very stubborn side, and Violet, the intelligent beauty who
steals your heart at first sight, and you have a book that
you can simply not put down. I look forward to reading the
next book in the series, because I know that Byron and
Violet's story is just beginning.
