My Review:

Ghosts, vampires, amateur vampire hunters, a journal relating events of a 200 year old massacre, a dead brother's actions coming home to roost, revenge and a reluctant romance make this hot & steamy sequel to Awakened Desires a good story.

Duvall's imaginative adaptation of the vampire mythos and the Vamrhys language make her vampire stories engaging reading.

Jason and Alan are brothers and amateur vampire hunters out to kill Veronique as revenge for her brother, Marcus, killing their love, Charlotte, when he was crazy out of his mind as the "Sparkman Stalker" 2 years ago. They are also related to Julia, Marcus' mate and Malcolm's ex-fiance. They found out they were vampires from an old family journal dating from the 1800s.

Veronique is female lead this time and while she has matured quite a bit, still irrationally blames Alistair for the death of Marcus and thus has ignored him and their link for the past 2 years. She denies they are lalid - soul mates. She has also developed deep abandonment issues. She drops a bombshell on Alistair - she has ARS - the same disease that drove Marcus crazy and turned him into a murdering beast.

Alistair, the male lead, knows Veronique is his soul mate but also that something is wrong - she would never tell him she loved him and she had done just that. Veronique knows just what buttons to push with him. When she tells him she just came there to sleep with him, leave and kill herself, he is beyond furious. She doesn't seem to have any ARS symptoms that he can see.

This eNovella is a very quick read and one I think paranormal romance and vampire fans will like.

Warning Spoiler Alert!!!!
This does have a HEA ending for Alistair and Veronique.

Moments of Beauty by JB Heller ~ Cover Reveal and Giveaway

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
