Embracing Darkness (Silhouette Intimate Moments Series #1355) [NOOK Book]

Overview


CRAVING HER, HE COULD HANDLE

Caring about her beyond a basic need to keep her safe, he could not. Maxwell Tremayne never should have touched her, kissed her, tasted her. It was foolish--dangerous--for a vampire to get involved with a human, let alone a flesh-and-blood spitfire of a woman with curves like Linnet's. Maxwell had to remember that it was tragedy that had brought them together on this dangerous quest to catch a cold-blooded killer. Even if they survived this struggle...

Overview


CRAVING HER, HE COULD HANDLE

Caring about her beyond a basic need to keep her safe, he could not. Maxwell Tremayne never should have touched her, kissed her, tasted her. It was foolish--dangerous--for a vampire to get involved with a human, let alone a flesh-and-blood spitfire of a woman with curves like Linnet's. Maxwell had to remember that it was tragedy that had brought them together on this dangerous quest to catch a cold-blooded killer. Even if they survived this struggle unscathed, imagining that they could share anything more than a fleeting affair was as ridiculous as...imagining that he could live another hundred years without her.

Meet the Author




Margaret L. Carter read Dracula when she was twelve, and it changed her life. She started writing fiction because she wondered about the "monster's" side of the story. Her first vampire story, written at the age of thirteen on her aunt's old manual typewriter, explored the viewpoint of a newly turned vampire.

Margaret earned her Ph.D. in English with a dissertation that featured a chapter on Dracula. While moving frequently as a Navy wife and occasionally teaching college English, she had books and articles published on the supernatural in literature, including a vampire bibliography and, most recently, Different Blood: The Vampire as Alien. Every year she prepares a vampire fiction bibliography update. Her earliest professional fiction sales appeared in Marion Zimmer Bradley's Darkover anthologies. Her first novel, Shadow of the Beast, a werewolf tale, was followed by Eppie Award-winning vampire novel Dark Changeling and other horror and paranormal romance books. A vampire romance, Embracing Darkness, was published by Silhouette Intimate Moments in 2005.

In addition to writing, Margaret works part time as a legislative proofreader for the Maryland General Assembly. She enjoys reading, playing Dungeons and Dragons, attending science fiction conventions, and listening to folk music (some conventions even combine SF with music). She and her husband, a retired Navy Captain, live in Maryland near the setting of several of her novels. They have collaborated on fantasy novels, Wild Sorceress and Besieged Adept, and have four sons, several grandchildren, two cats, and a St. Bernard.

    Fantastic vampire romance

    Vampire Maxwell Tremayne notices the pretty human female watching the Grant residence when he accosts her. He learns she is Linnett Carroll whose niece Deanna was recently murdered along with his younger brother Anthony. Both believe Nola Grant had lackeys commit the homicides as a warning that no one leaves Nola¿s cult................................ Anthony tells Linnett to go home, but she refuses. Though he fears she will interfere with his thirst for revenge, he figures he can control her better if she is with him. As they begin to work their way slowly towards Nola, surrounded by her minion, Linnett and Maxwell fall in love, but what future can there be between a mortal whose lifespan is decades and a bloodsucker who lives for centuries and more. Besides Nola is not going to sit idly by while her enemies close in on her............................... Readers will enjoy this fantastic vampire romance that starts on a high note when Maxwell comes out of seemingly nowhere (actually from the sky) to confront Linnett. The story line is action-packed as the avenging courageous duo battle the minion of their enemy while also falling in love, an emotion neither feels they can afford at this time if they are going to defeat Nola. Supernatural romance fans will embrace the tense darkness that Margaret Carter deftly portrays because the author enables her readers to easily accept that the undead and other paranormal species live.......................
