ROMANTIC TIMES-:four and a half -- Top Pick
For as long as Valerie can remember, 'Cowboy' has always been in her
dreams. First he was there to comfort and protect a small child in the
aftermath of her parents' violent death, and as she grew from a child to a
woman, he became something much more. 'Cowboy' invades her dreams and her
body. In her dreams he was her lover, her hero and she loved him and
'Cowboy' loved her too. So when her fantasy dreams turns into a nightmare,
Valerie feels heartbreakingly betrayed.
Cade hadn't meant to frighten Valerie, he just wanted to be with her, feel
her one last time. Cade learned years before to accept the bond between
them. Obviously that night so long ago mentally linked them for all
time. Cade knew that should Valerie learn of his role in her parents'
murder, she'd never forgive him. The fact that he was there at all would
turn her away forever. She doesn't remember seeing him, talking with him,
or not being afraid of him, when the look about him should have sent her
screaming into the night. Instead when the monsters came in her dreams,
she called to him to protect her and he could do nothing else but slay her
monsters for her.
Valerie is prepared to go cross-country. Having suddenly and
suspiciously lost her job, she reluctantly takes another. The very last
person she expects to greet her at the airport is 'Cowboy'. One look into
his eyes and she knows for certain it's him. Valerie never thought that he
could be real; hoped and prayed that he was somewhere out there, but didn't
believe it. Now he's here and he's even better in person than in her
dreams. Then she remembers her nightmare and all she can think is, could
that be real also? Would the fantasy lover of her dreams, really grow
fangs and want to bite her?
I found The Forever Kiss to be an exceptionally written, refreshing
book. Immediately readers are drawn into this story by the very steamy
love affair between Cade and Valerie. Angela Knight has written this cast
of characters wonderfully. Ms. Knight has captured Valerie's internal
struggle so well, that readers also feel undecided; if she helps Cade her life
is forever altered, but if she doesn't can she live with the
repercussions? The Forever Kiss is filled with intriguing questions just
like this. The balance of good and evil isn't always known in this book or
that the good will win in the end, but readers can hope that true love conquers
all. I really enjoyed this book by Angela Knight. As a new-to-me
author, Ms. Knight goes straight to my 'auto-buy list'. 5
Cowboy has come to her
in her dreams ever since she can remember.
When her parents were killed and she dreamed of monsters and vampires, it
was always cowboy that came to the rescue.
As she got older, her dreams of cowboy became more romantic and sexual
but suddenly as she was dreaming of him making passionate love to her, he turned
into a vampire and was coming to her with teeth extended. This was a new twist and Valerie is
frightened even though she knows he is only a dream.
Cade McKinnon had a mind
fusion with Valerie when she was a child and even though he is a vampire, he has
tried to protect her and her sister, Beth, and has come to her in her dreams as
cowboy. Cade has been freed from
his former evil master, Ridgemont, but Ridgemont is older and still much more
powerful along with his minion, Hirsch.
With the smell of peppermint is the little ghost, Abigail, who hovers
around Cade and who loves him and tries to protect him.
Little does Valerie
realize her psychic power and little does she realize why she got fired from her
job and hired by Ridgemont to write his memoirs. She leaves for New York to start
her new job where the evil vampire is waiting and where Cade is determined to
love and protect her but is he powerful enough to defeat the older vampire? Cade meets her at the airport; she
recognizes her dream man, Cowboy, and the adventure
THE FOREVER KISS flows
well with good characters and an interesting plot. How can you help but like the
handsome Cade who ignores his own pain to protect and love the mortal
woman? I also enjoyed Abby who died
as a young girl and is determined to protect her older brother. Ridgemont and Hirsch are sufficiently
evil so that the reader can hiss and boo when they approach the hero and
heroine. The story has a fresh look
at vampires that dispel some of the myths and the romance is very scorching
between the protagonists with many love scenes.
enjoy vampires and a lot of hot sex, you are sure to enjoy THE FOREVER
Fans of Angela Knight have been waiting for her to have a single title
and finally their waiting has paid off in FOREVER KISS. For seventeen
Valerie has had her Cowboy in the back of her mind. He was her
protector when she was growing up, after the murder of her parents, and
dream lover when she became an adult. Now she comes to
find out that her Cowboy isn't imaginary at all and to top it off he claims
is a vampire and he is trying to protect her from an evil vampire
Ridgemont who wants to make her his slave for the next hundred years.
Cade McKinnon, has to figure out how to convince Valerie that the only
way they can defeat Ridgemont is for him to change her. Once
changed they can combine their energies to have at least a chance at defeating
the evil Ridgemont.
FOREVER KISS is the first single title released from Red Sage and if
this is any indication of what we can expect, it won't be the last.
Knight fans have known for years what a talented writer she is and now
there will be others will get a chance to read her. Ms Knight sucks
in (pun intended) from the beginning and doesn't let go until the last
page. The love scenes are hot enough to give a vampire a sunburn and
fight scenes will have you cheering for the good guys.
I cannot recommend FOREVER KISS enough!
