Her Vampire's Promise

~ A Romance in Central City | Novella 1 ~

Reade Hayes knows better than any vampire that nothing good ever comes out of Central City. So he isn’t surprised the beautiful blonde he meets in a dive bar is crazy. What does surprise him is how fast she moves, how hard she hits, and the fact she’s wearing a ring he last saw two decades ago on the hand of his dead friend.

Is it possible the little girl he swore a blood pact to protect didn’t die in the fire? If the beauty sitting beside him is that pretty little baby, where has she been for twenty years? And why is she so lethal?

On hindsight Lawrie Tyrone realizes drinking vampire blood might not have been the smartest decision. But scientists experiment and if she is going to prove her father was not a traitor, she has to take risks. So far she’s experienced no alarming side effects, well, none other than being able to recognize vampires walking among humans.

From the power he exudes to his gorgeous dark eyes everything about the man to her right screams danger. Every logical thought tells her to kill him. But something in his eyes stops her. Is he using his vampire powers to influence her, or is something else making her heart ache for him?

Can love thrive in the ruins of Central City?

The silent essence within coursed through her, moving faster than her own blood moved, touching every part of her and pooling wherever she ached.

Her hand tingled in a series of painful throbs that subsided before she could fully realize how much it hurt. The bones knit back together. The bruising faded.

Reade’s fingers slid between hers, and he massaged her aching muscles, straightening and bending her crippled fingers, until finally she was able to work her hand on her own.

With her body pressed to Reade’s she felt his heart beat against her, matching hers…or was hers matching his? She wasn’t sure. What she did know was their hearts beat as one. His heart called to her.
