Overview

The Whitcombe Legacy: Triplet brothers were intiated into the vampiric life 125 years ago. Now they will either fulfill their family legacy and save the world, or they'll unleash horrendous evil upon it ...

Book One: Julian Whitcombe's mission is to destroy vampires who prey on the citizens of New Orleans. According to prophecy, a woman with the power to restore Julian's humanity will enter his life when the need for his transformation is greatest. As a mortal, Julian will continue his fight against the evil ones in both daylight and darkness, fulfilling The Whitcombe Legacy.

After Hurricane Katrina all but destroys New Orleans and evil vampires are wreaking havoc on helpless victims, Simone LeClerc turns up on Julian's doorstep. He knows she's the woman destined to make him human again. All he has to do is make her fall in love with him-and make her willing to offer her life in exchange for his. Six weeks after hurricane Katrina strikes New Orleans, Simone LeClerc is frantically searching for her missing stepsister. Out of money and with no place to live, Simone finds both at Mike's After Dark, a bar in the New Orleans French Quarter. There, Simone also meets the vampire Julian, and finds herself falling in love with him. But soon she wonders if it's really love she's feels for Julian, or has he woven a spell around her that means her certain death?

    entertaining romantic fantasy

    Not long after the destruction Hurricane Katrina caused, Simone LeClerc comes to New Orleans to find her missing step-sister Dottie, who went to the Big Easy seeking a missing woman only to drop out of sight. Determined to find her sibling, Simone obtains work and an apartment at Mike¿s After Dark bar the owner Julian Whitcombe is a hundred and fifty years old vampire there she meets the bartender who is a shapeshifter.---------------- Julian believes Simone is the woman the Goddess Lilith prophesized would come to him when the need is great. Lilith knows that if Simone loves Julian deep enough, she will convert him back from vampire to mortal as only humans can and he will fulfill his destiny to save the world. Simone remains skeptical that vampires exist and that Zurik and his clan drink human blood until their victims die and the news is all over the media. Julian and his clan fight them depending on synthetic blood for sustenance. As she sees the truth, she knows she loves Julian and if he needs her to do something prophesized by the Goddess Lilith, she will do it for him.------------------ The first Whitcombe Legacies tale stars one of triplets who in times of catastrophe must find the respective women who will allow each to achieve their destiny. This vampiric romance is refreshing due to an original plot that uses the Katrina destruction as a horrific backdrop. Ann B. Morris leaves her audience anxiously waiting for the next two bites led by the other two triplets.------------- Harriet Klausner
