A heart can break, even one that no longer beats.
I stalk my new neighbors, a single mother and her child, drawn by the irresistible scent of their joy and love. I crave their blood, starved for some healing respite from my ancient grief. Now to lure them into my grasp.
But they surprise me. Little Olivia accepts me without fear or reservation—talking, smiling, offering innocent affection that tugs at my long-lost humanity. Her mother, Samantha, seeks me out when she should stay away, offering sweet friendship, and calling to the forgotten man within me. They lure me instead.
Ah, Dio, Lucien, run and spare them while you can…
Forever Freed is an impressive story of one vampire’s journey into self-forgiveness and happiness. Lucien is a tortured soul who touches not only the hearts of precocious Olivia and her mother Samantha, but the reader as well. There is seldom anything better than a well-written angst-ridden hero and Lucien is a fabulously tormented vampire. I thoroughly enjoyed going along on his journey and watching his relationship with the two human females develop. All of the characters in this story are so very engaging from the most unpleasant villain to the congenial charmers of Lucien’s family. I’d love to see many of them get their very own tales. This story contains, action, adventure and romance, it runs the gamut of emotions.
