TALL, DARK AND IMMORTAL.
If there is one thing Dixie LePage does not need in her life, it's complications. And the man sitting across the table from her in a crowded English pub is a major complication. For starters, there's the broad shoulders. The slightly amused smirk. That smoldering look that makes it impossible to concentrate. No doubt about it, the guy is hot and sexy.
Of course, there is one wee little problem: He claims to be a vampire named Christopher Marlowe, as in THE Christopher Marlowe, famous playwright, contemporary of Will Shakespeare. Amend that to hot, sexy, and totally insane. So why can't Dixie seem to resist the warmth of Christopher's charm, the protective feel of his strong hands, or the tempting pull of his full mouth when the sun goes down? ...
Dixie LePage craves a simple life with no complications. But when she hears news that she has inherited property and a house, she heads over to England to see it and to determine what she wants to do with it. She arrives and upon seeing what she has inherited from her great aunts, she only finds herself full of more questions. There are mysterious people of the town that mystify her in ways she can’t explain including a powerful yet mysterious Christopher Marlowe, a man everyone seems to fear. But when his enemies try to kill him, Dixie saves his life and discovers his true identity: A vampire!! Dixie is thrown into a world of chaos and passion and mixed emotions. She doesn’t understand her feelings for Christopher, especially when their relationship is forbidden as she is human. But Dixie isn’t a woman to go down fighting and she will fight for her man.
Plot and Story Line
I have been aching to pick up Kiss Me Forever for the longest time!!! I read the second book of the series a few years back and boy was it good!! I do like what Laurey has done with this series of hers. Each author does vampires a bit differently, but as I was reading this book, I remembered why I fell in love with her previously. In this series, there is a culture of vampires, there are different clans of vampires around the world with their own rulebook per se. In this set up, our hero is bound by rules of his vampire clan. One of the most major rules you can’t turn a human unless their life is in danger and if you fall in love with one you are banished for that human’s life span. Some pretty strict rules for sure. But I did love what this pair have together. The story does start a bit slow at first, but it picks up pace quickly. And once it did, I was all into the story and didn’t want to put it down. I loved the setting the book starts in. A small quaint English town that had such charm and mystery to it. We deal with vampires and witches and some villains that are out for greed and power. I liked how this aspect of the story adds more depth to it. This story was unique, different and exciting. I am looking forward to reading more of this series.
It definitely has a paranormal feel to it, especially a vampire portrayal. I like the red rose. 🙂
Kiss Me Forever is a great start for this series—it has thrills, edgy mystery and fascinating characters to keep you intrigued from beginning to end.
