"Arousing vampire romance"
After teaming up with his enemy, Grigori Chiavari to kill a
rogue vampire, hunter Edward Ramsey is now one of the
undead complements of his former ally for saving his life.
Ramseys for centuries have hunted vampires so Edward has
deep psychological problems with the change and prefers
death. Still, he saves the life of a mortal, Kelly
Anderson who jumped into the river because she has nothing
to live for.
Meanwhile the oldest known living vampire Khira arrives in
the Los Angeles area seeking her former lover Grigori for
the first time in two centuries. When Grigori saw Khira
sucking the blood of a child, he left her. Now Khira plans
to dominate the region with only Grigori and Edward
powerful enough, if they can team up again, to stop her.
For stop her they must as Khira plans to eliminate the
beloved two mortals that Grigori and Edward now
respectively love above their own lives.
The sequel to SHADES OF GRAY is an arousing vampire romance
that readers who enjoy a bite in their novels will want to
read. Though the story line seems somewhat repetitive with
Edward's constant whining that he wants to die, he is a
powerful character struggling between his heritage and his
dark future until he realizes how much he love Kelly.
Grigori and his wife Marisa retain their cherished
relationship that is being challenged by the villainess
Khira while the audience wonders will she or will she not.
Amanda Ashley provides an enjoyable supernatural romance
that those who enjoy the AFTER SUNDOWN nightlife will want
