Blurb From Goodreads:
London, 1888 – Jack the Ripper
Having loved and lost his soul mate three times, Broderick MacDougal refuses to put his beloved Blossom in danger once more by barging into her life. As a vampire with a dark past and countless enemies, he brings too many risks with him to selfishly claim her as his own. But keeping her at a distance, while he guarantees she lives a “normal” life, proves to be much more difficult than he anticipated–and so is encouraging her to find refuge in the arms of the another man. As much as Broderick hates to admit it, Theodore Coleman may be Belle’s only safe haven.
Christabelle Williams has fought for her financial independence since the cradle, and nothing–not living on the poverty-stricken streets of Whitechapel, not even the handsome and rich Theodore Coleman–will make her turn to anyone for help. But Belle is attacked and her injuries jeopardize her living as a laundress. Finally accepting Theo’s marriage proposal wouldn’t be so bad…if she wasn’t haunted by the sinful encounters with a passionate vampire in her dreams.
Jack the Ripper starts prowling the streets where Christabelle lives…and he is no mere mortal. Broderick must act quickly to get Belle out of harm’s way before the Whitechapel murderer learns what she means to Broderick and use her to extract payment for an old debt.
Ooooh, this was good!! I loved how Jack the Ripper was part of this one, and the theory as to why he did what he did. But that was such a small part of story. Christabelle was awesome; I loved her attitude and strength. It’s like through each reincarnation she becomes more badass. I can’t wait to read the next one, especially with the little revelation at the end with their son. I won’t give anything away but I wonder if it’s part of the prophecy. We know as much as the characters about the prophecy, which isn’t much. It’s close to being fulfilled and as much as I want to find out I don’t want the series to end. Well, part of me wants it to end, just because Rick has had to go through the heartache of losing his mortal love over and over. No one should have to endure that but I’ll miss the characters, they are like friends.
I’m an author of paranormal and fantasy fiction, and I love all things magical! My adult stories tend to have strong romantic themes and usually some pretty HOT sex, so I do NOT recommend my adult fiction for anyone under the age of 18. You have been warned! However, my young adult and children’s stories (written as Christine Davies) are more than suitable for younger readers. Those stories are also fantasy fiction.
I love to create detailed worlds and very layered plots, creating the type of books I love to sit down and read before a warm, cozy fire and disappear into another world! I hope you like them, too.
