The summer after college, Amelia Chase lands a coveted position as the personal assistant for the brilliant, yet reclusive, Grant Palmer. Grant’s aloof nature and obsessive-compulsive behavior leads Amelia to rethink her position until Grant steps in to rescue her during a bizarre kidnapping attempt. She soon realizes Grant is a man of many secrets, all hidden behind an elaborate façade of self-discipline and control.
Grant Palmer spends his days in an expensive suit and tie, funding charitable works for his family’s Foundation. His nights are reserved for patrolling the small city of Asheville and the bordering mountainside in an effort to protect residents from rogue vampires. Why? He has his own collection of kills to atone for from his own days as a rebellious, blood thirsty killer.
Amelia and Grant’s professional relationship turns personal, distracting Grant from his duties. As the number of victims rise, it becomes apparent that a predator in the hills of North Carolina has a vendetta against Grant. Aware of Grant’s increasing interest, possessing Amelia is one way for this killer to enact his twisted revenge.
Amelia Chase needs a job in the worst way. After graduation, she has to do something quickly if she wants to stay in Asheville. A recommendation from a professor lands her an interview with the prestigious Palmer Foundation as the Personal Assistant to Mr. Grant Palmer himself.
Grant Palmer is known to be very particular and for rabidly guarding his privacy. That’s nothing that Amelia can’t handle but what she can’t handle is how she feels when she actually meets Mr. Palmer in the flesh.
Not only is he rude, abrupt and absolutely gorgeous – He also heats her blood more than any man she has ever encountered. But Grant is protecting a monumental secret – He’s really a 115-year-old vampire.
The scent of Amelia’s blood makes Grant want to lose his iron control. He wants her in ways that scares even him. And now there’s an unseen danger lurking just beyond the mountains that is trying to draw him out – and they are going to use Amelia to do it.
She'd placed her hand in mine. Her skin was warm and soft and filled me with such a strong current of electricity I thought my heart may actually start beating. Amelia's eyes widened and I heard a small, but sharp, intake of breath come from her mouth but she didn't let go.
Angel Lawson has penned one of the sweetest of paranormal romances in Creature of Habit. Her characters are equally awkward and complex while her story moves at vampiric speed to keep me devouring every page.
I’ll just be here hanging out in Grant’s closet anxiously awaiting book two…
