Review Calling for a Miracle by Lydia Michaels

Title: Calling for a Miracle (The Order of the Vampyres: Book 2)
Author: Lydia Michaels
Source: Author request
Genre: Paranormal romance
Length: ebook 384 pages

Isolated in the quiet hills of Pennsylvania is an Amish order unlike any other—they are vampyre.

After fleeing her oppressive marriage, Larissa Hartzler will give herself to no man, but Bishop Eleazar King has other plans. Eleazar is appalled when he discovers the always dutiful Larissa working in an English house of sin.

As the most respected immortal of The Order, Eleazar has always maintained unwavering control, but everything changes once he is called. His long standing position of authority is threatened when his need for his mate takes hold. There is nothing that will keep him from possessing the virginal Larissa as his mate. Not even her husband. Larissa’s fear of being found by Bishop King transforms into confusion when she learns he is her mate. Five times his minor and broken on so many emotional levels, Larissa knows she will be an inadequate mate for Eleazar. With gentle patience he begins to teach her what her husband never did, and slowly awakens Larissa’s desires.

Ah, my lovely Amish Vampyres are back again!  If you missed my review for the first in this series you can check it out here: Called To Order
I absolutely fell in love with the unique story of a community of peace loving, simple living vampyres.  Don't get the wrong idea, these vampyres can heat up a room WITHOUT electricity ;)

Calling for a Miracle was slightly different from Calling to Order in the aspect that it had more than one story going on.  If you're familiar with the Black Dagger Brotherhood books you'll understand what I mean when I say there was a lot of plot going on here.  Just when I was starting to get into Larissa and the Bishops story there would be a switch up to one of the side stories.  At the time I was a little frustrated (I have no patients when  true love is involved. LOL) but by the end of the book I understood why it was necessary.  I'm going to get artsy here for a second, bare with me; Imagine 3 separate threads that eventually twine together to make a beautiful weave. Yeah, poetry was never my thing, but I'm sure you get the idea :)

In all; Calling for a Miracle was another wonderfully imaginative book brought to life with the creativity I've come to expect from Lydia Michaels.  I loved it and am patiently awaiting *tapping foot* for Cain's story.
