#MFRWHooks - 12/2/15 - Mortal Illusions - Immortality is a gift, not a right #Vampires #Paranormal

Most vampires drink blood, but not all of them go for the neck.

At work?  Use your own discretion. If you’re not over 18, please explore elsewhere.

It's MFRW Book Hooks, a regular Wednesday feature!  This week, I'm sharing an excerpt from my 1st book, Mortal Illusions. A vampire romance published by New Concepts Publishing, Mortal Illusions is currently the first in a series of 3 books.  Its sequel, Fatal Desire, is currently under production.


This snippet occurs at the beginning of Chapter 14.  After she is punished by Germaine's coven, Sybill, a former mortal to one of Germaine's vampires, seeks to join a different coven. A vain beauty who wishes to be immortal, Sybill realizes she can gain two of heart's desires by beseeching Victor Cummings, the enemy of her enemy.

Though Nigel Watkins is a friend of Germaine's and an actor in his musical, he does not agree with Germaine's philosophy on transformations. So, he elected to join Victor's coven instead, and stands as an observer when Sybill makes her supplication to Victor, and is more than a little taken aback by her open hostility.

             With a hatred that was almost palpable, the female was willing to do anything that might bring Germaine St. Justine to his knees, and Victor couldn't have been more delighted.  He'd made no secret of his quest for revenge against his former ally, and wasn't above using less than honorable means to snare Claire Daniels into his trap.
             Nigel may have sworn his allegiance to Victor, but he had no intention of letting Claire fall victim to this long standing disagreement--not when he still wanted her for himself.
             And he did want her, but not if she was unwilling to be taken.  That was the difference between him and his leader.  Nigel, like Victor, believed it was the vampire's birthright to grant the gift of immortality. What Nigel didn't believe in was seducing women against their will.

Nigel Watkins plays Van Helsing in Germaine's musical adaptation of Dracula. He isn't aware of Sybill's history, or why she seeks to destroy her former leader, but he suspects her intentions will mean trouble for both Germaine and Claire.

M/F, Contemporary vampire romance in a society based on D/s.
