Overview

The Whitcombe Legacy: Triplet brothers were initiated into the vampiric life 125 years go. Now they will either fulfill their family legacy and save the world from evil vampires, or forfeit their chance to become human again. Book Two: Jerome Whitcombe, second born of the Whitcombe vampire triplets, has embraced his life as a vampire and has no desire to become human again. Without Jerome's cooperation, the final step in the restoration of his brother Julian's humanity cannot be completed, and The Whitcombe Legacy will never be fulfilled. Jerome isn't convinced that's a bad thing because without vampiric powers he can't see how they can possibly defeat their enemies. Then his brother sends Dottie Crawford to him and tasks Jerome with the woman's medical care and safety. During Hurricane Katrina, Dottie was kidnapped by the evil vampire Zurik and contracted a rare form of sleeping sickness that, amid the hurricane's aftermath, can't be treated in New Orleans. But from the moment Jerome meets Dottie, he knows that recovery from her illness is the least of her concerns. He's drawn to her in the most basic vampiric way-he craves her blood.Soon Jerome is caught in a struggle between the darkness he has come to embrace and his return to humankind. In the balance hangs the life of the woman he loves.

    The Vampire Jerome is a terrific urban romantic fantasy

    Everyone believes that the deaths and vast destruction of the Mississippi delta was caused by Katrina, but what is mostly unknown is that during the chaotic lawlessness in which civilization temporarily vanished, evil deep earth vampires feasted. The malevolent potent Zurik captured Dottie Crawford with the intent of using her to get to the Whitcombe brother Julian. After being tortured many times, Julian frees her and sends her to his sibling Jerome for medical treatment.

    Jerome loves being a vampire but if he meets a mortal woman he cherishes more then he would give up immortality for her. He knows Julian who found his soulmate wants that for his brothers even though that means fighting the amoral immortal deep earth vampires with the powers the Goddess Lilith will give them as humans. A shift in the magical forces near the earth's core indicates a major earthquake is coming soon; Jerome and his cadre are needed to prevent another Katrina hammering the Bay area. Jerome knows he has feelings for Dottie, but fights his desire as undesirable because he detests the concept of monogamy. He finally concludes he loves Dottie but is duty bound to his bother and their Whitcombe legacy; either way he fears for the woman whose blood is imprinted on his brain.

    The Vampire Jerome is a terrific urban romantic fantasy filled with plenty of action and yet also contains complex moral dilemmas; together they grip the audience to keep turning the pages to learn what happens next. Dottie is a person of strength who loves Jerome although he is a vampire who seems to cherish being undead and she was a hostage of one of his kind. The second Whitcombe triplet's legacy (see The Vampire Julian) continues the fresh take on the vampire mythos as each of the brothers must choose the dank darkness or the light of love.
