"Suspense-filled vampire romance!"
Now that the old man has finally died, Sebastian Morgan has
come back to Darkisle to his old home, along with his
younger sister Ruby. Sebastian never thought he would see
the old homestead again. With the trouble in Amsterdam, both
Sebastian and Ruby needed to leave Europe, so it was good
timing for them to inherit the house. When Sebastian goes
out onto the balcony off his old room, he notices two people
on the Morgan private beach. When he gets down to the young
couple, the man becomes belligerent and Sebastian has the
intruders arrested. Both him and Ruby value their privacy.
When Briana receives the call to bail out her brother again,
she is less than pleased. It seems like Briana is always
bailing Todd out of some trouble or other. Obviously, Todd
is drinking again and getting into trouble. Of course, when
Briana sees the young woman Todd was arrested with, she
isn't surprised. In an effort to avoid charges being brought
against her brother, Briana goes to Sebastian Morgan to
apologize for Todd's behavior. However, when she gets a good
look at the man, there is an instant attraction between
them. In order to forget the whole thing, Sebastian wants
Todd to fix up the house. And so Briana will drop Todd off
at night to work. Not that she doesn't have enough to do
with the motel.
Darkisle is a small seaside town and it's inevitable that
Briana and Sebastian run into each other. There is a
powerful attraction between them, but Briana senses that
something is different about Sebastian.
Will Briana be able to accept Sebastian as he is? Will Todd
ever stay out of trouble? What of Briana's ex-boyfriend?
Will he be content to watch Briana enter into a relationship
HEIRS TO DARKISLE DARKISLE BOOK 1 is an exciting vampire
romance. Cassandra Pierce tells a tale of two very different
types of vampires with Sebastian and Ruby. Ruby embraces
what she is while Sebastian wishes he never became a
vampire. As Sebastian and Ruby become involved with Briana
and Todd, two very different types of romances evolve. The
characters—including the secondary ones—are all very well
fleshed out. Cassandra Pierce comes up with an interesting
twist to the vampire mythos in this story as well. All in
all, a story well worth the time spent reading it with a
heartfelt sigh at the end.
