How much fight does one woman have inside?
Calla Hart has never relied on anyone. The fierce West Virginian learned the hard way to be self-sufficient, that is until she is viciously attacked late one night by two thugs. Her luck turns when, still fighting for her life, she is rescued from her attackers by a preternaturally strong stranger. She is stunned to discover that Severin Beauvais is not your typical alpha male hero. Although her pre-med student mind vehemently resists the notion, Calla must soon accept that he is a vampire, one who has stalked the historic grounds of Charleston, South Carolina, since the mid-eighteenth century. Their desire for each other is intense, yet as much as she'd like to envision happily ever after with Severin, too much stands in their way. Aside from her fragile mortality, there is Severin's extremely dominant personality coupled with his unending feud with the ancient Russian vampire Valdon, who has so far proved invincible.
And Valdon has set his sights on Calla ....
When it comes down to the wire, what would you sacrifice for the love of your life?
Severin Beauvais has walked the earth for two hundred and eighty-three years. He knows that there is something very different about the girl that he rescues from a horrible fate in a dark Charleston alley when she survives the trace that saves her life. After that one night, her blood calls to his very soul and her body dances in his memory. He vows to find her again but when he does, he’ll have to save them both from an eternal enemy that now wants to take her for his own.
“I hope you’re well rested, Calla, because I’m coming for you tonight.”
Calla Hart is just a girl who is working toward her dream of becoming a physician. She grew up poor in Appalachia and she still remembers the heartbreak of losing the one person that ever really loved her. Her savior sends passion singing through her body even though she knows what he is. Their bond is more than just physical – it’s ageless.
Now she finds herself in the middle of a centuries old battle between her darkly handsome Severin and the menacing Valdon and she will stop at nothing to protect her forever love.
“His eyes watch me closely for a long moment before his arms wrap me tight and his forehead presses against mine. His accented voice cuts softly through the space as he says, “Calla, my angel.” I languish in the safety of his comforting hold. For in this flawless moment in time all the exterior worries of outside threats and stress seem both trivial and meaningless. Here, together, we are powerful and untouchable. For now, that’s enough. It has to be.”
Christine Edwards makes vampires wickedly sexy as only she can in Charleston Past Midnight! Severin Beauvais is the ultimate vampire hero with his dominant streak and barely controlled passion while Calla is his true equal with her strong determination and intelligence.
Her story goes right for the jugular and only lets up to send you reeling once again. Then add Christine’s very own brand of blood and sex and I can’t imagine a better way to spend Halloween…
