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?

**I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review Julian Whitcombe is one of three triplets. He lives in New Orleans in the French Quarter. He has to fulfill a legacy that Goddess Lilith has handed down to him. Julian is 150 years old, but 120 of those years he was a full vampire. Simone LeClerc didn't believe in miracle but did believe in luck. Six weeks after the great hurricane hit, Mike's After Dark bar had a sign stating Bartender/Assistant Manager Wanted. Oddly enough Simone had taken a mixology course several years ago. Julian is the owner of the bar. Simone came to New Orleans with her step-sister Dottie. Dottie was on a case but now she was missing. Dottie had a seven year old daughter, Casey, so it was important for Simone to find her. Zurik is the arch-enemy of Julian. I found Julian to be very stubborn, but is worried he won't find that one person to help fulfill his part of the legacy. Simone is a very caring person. She sincerely loves her step-sister as if she were her full sister. She's determined, caring, strong about her beliefs, and can be impulsive, even if it puts her at risk. I really loved this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it, with all of it's twists and turns. I also enjoyed the romance that was shot into. Overall great plot. The characters were well portrayed. I recommend this to anyone that enjoys paranormal books. Can't wait for the next one.
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
