Excerpt ~ Blood Thirst, an Eternal Romance by Dormaine G.

Octavia, a human, appeared into this world with a mysterious past unknown to even her. Victor a cultured man of influential prestige was born a savage vampire. They should have never been but their attraction was so profound neither could deny their love.

“Tell me to stop and I will.” He came to stand in front of her after hearing no more words of resistance cross her lips.

In a split second, he wished he could sire her and take her for his own. He wanted to tell her everything. This world, his world, about vampires, but he could not.

Victor gripped her face within his palms. “I cannot let you go. I will not,” he exhaled, caressing her lips. “But if you want me to, I will leave you be. Forever…”

“This is madness…” Octavia gazed up at him speechless. She tried to resist him, but the words of refute would not flow.

“And I cannot breathe when you are not near. I cannot think when you are not by my side. The last few days have been murderous knowing that I could not have you” He kissed her, not allowing her to refuse him.

He would never let her go.

EXCERPT

As he made his way towards the woods, Victor remembered that feeling of freedom. The night had always been his, to do what he wanted. Throughout the years, he’d missed being pure animal, but he had mostly missed the pursuit of a victim.

The chase—hearing the hurried pounding of staggering feet when a prey learns, at that very second, that vampires do exist. At that moment, nothing mattered but the sound of that beating heart as he’d zoned in on what would inevitably be a kill.

He’d let them run in the belief that they’d escaped this living nightmare, but it was a false hope Victor bestowed upon them. Cruel as it was, it was most exhilarating to listen to them scamper from afar.

Once captured, the rush soared through Victor’s icy veins when he saw the horrid fear in his captive’s eyes. Their pupils dilated. Their lips quivered. Their raspy breaths escaped. Some managed to scream, others choked on the lavish feast they had ingested. The more they feared, the more adrenaline filled their bodies, making the kill so much more exquisite. At the moment right before death, Victor always found it to be breathtakingly beautiful. Victor always had a way of picking the best hunts. His were always the ghastliest. The bloodiest. Young women were always his favorite to stalk and torture.

There was never a time when he didn’t have a different woman in his bed several nights a week. There were many women, and they were all at his disposal.

But the parties halted one treacherous night, so very long ago.

Book Review: Embrace by Megan Derr

Embrace by Megan Derr
My Rating: ★★★★★

This is why I love Megan Derr. She can make a brilliant story out of a very simple plot/idea – and turn them into something complicated and different. That’s what sets her books apart from the others of the same theme.

Embrace is like that. At a glance, you may think that this is just another vampire story. But it isn’t. I really don’t know how she does it. But just like her other works that I’ve managed to read so far, reading a page meant wanting to turn it to the next page and not putting it down until I’m done.

And, just like her previous works, I also love the characters in this one. They made me laugh, giggle, smile, feel ‘kilig.’ The ending of this book is simple but fitting after all the issues and mystery and whatever they are called. I know it’s already the ending, and it was satisfactory; still, a part of me wanted to read more.

While I acknowledge that the book could use further editing, I don’t see why it was pulled out of the market for good. I guess I just have to be glad that I have a copy of it.

I really hope to meet her in person someday. I’m a huge Megan Derr fan. I’ll never get tired of saying how awesome she is!

Now, I’ll be off to read another book of hers. Or maybe review another.

Cheers! ^__^
