Synopsis:
She wants a normal life. They want her dead. Destiny has other plans.

Twenty-year-old Alayna Scott receives visions around water, but even her foresight couldn’t prepare her for the tragic accident that claimed the lives of her parents. With everything she loves gone, Alayna packs up and moves to the small town of Juniper Grove in hopes of starting over.

Jayden McKnight can’t explain the attraction that he feels whenever Alayna is near, but he does know that he will do whatever it takes to win her heart. When a vampire selects Alayna as his next victim, Jayden will stop at nothing to ensure her safety – even if that means bringing Alayna into a world that she never knew existed.

Love blossoms, challenges are made and Alayna will find herself fighting not only to survive, but to understand what she has become.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

This was a good read. It had a decent plot and decent details. The blurb was definitely attention grabbing.

 

This story line was good but had the ability to be great. As this is the authors first story I think it could use a little bit more. A little more detail and a little more oomph. It wasn’t a “bad” read, it was a good read, but it didn’t hold my attention like I had hoped.

 

The characters were okay, nothing fantastic and they weren’t extremely developed. They seemed quite simple, which is okay, but I prefer more detail, more depth, and more developed.

 

I think the author has the ability to get there and write an incredible story. Her idea is great and again, the blurb was amazing. The story just didn’t lack the ability to grab my attention and hold it. I think just a little more attention to detail and descriptions and development on the character side would have made this an excellent story.
