REVIEW:

 

His Eternal Promise

By Sheri Lynn

4 Stars

Reviewed by Jeffrey Ross

 

I leave this entertaining book with the sense I might enjoy being a vampire! The human-to-vampire transformation is a little rough—but the benefits (immortality, heightened sensory awareness [of all kinds], and increased strength) seem worth the struggle. This book successfully combines vampirism and romance—Maxim and Carlee are hot for each other no matter what the circumstance—or century. Author Sheri Lynn does an excellent job of displaying the turgid emotions felt by her main characters. She has a clear sense of the plot’s machinations and outcomes. The love scenes are passionate—and a little wild. A great read that I award four stars to only because the language is a little rough for my taste—but that’s just me

 

 

EXCERPT

 

He didn’t sleep. Carlee breathed deep and steady, so he knew she slept. He should not have followed her. In a whole century, he never interacted with mortals other than business. The desire to be with one, sexually or in any intimate manner, never appealed to him.

Something about this one human reached out and into the dark, lonely places inside him. He couldn’t let her go. He knew that. Looking into her eyes, hearing and feeling her blood circulating through her lovely body, he knew he found the exception. For her to accept him, want him, and take him as she did, just reinforced it.

Her light hair spread out inches from his face. Rubbing his nose in it, he breathed in the scent, reveling in the reactions her smell conjured in him. Many women attempted to attract him, entice him, and he always rejected them. After he fled Annika, he lost interest in women. Until Carlee. The need to seduce, cherish, protect, and indulge her consumed him.

How would she see him this morning? She could have regrets. She could obsess over what she saw behind the building. She could decide to end any further interaction with him. There were so many questions, and he needed to decide what he was and wasn’t ready to divulge. With all certainty, he knew she belonged with him. She would remain his.

Without any sleep, and enraptured in the beauty of the woman lying beside him, his impatience mounted. Let the spoiling commence. Without disturbing her, he got out of the bed to put some coffee on. She probably drank coffee.

As he entered the kitchen, a coffee pot came into view. Now to find filters and coffee.

“Right upper cabinet, over the sink,” informed Carlee. He didn’t hear her enter the kitchen, but the sight of her standing there, just waking up, tousled hair, and nude, made him want to reclaim her right then and there. As if she read his thoughts, she grinned, lifting her arms awkwardly to semi-cover her chest.

Approaching her, he took both her wrists and pulled her arms to her sides. “Kotyonok, don’t you ever hide from me…especially that exquisite body.” Leaning in, he brushed his lips over hers. Her round, hazel eyes never leaving his. “What is it you normally do on a Sunday?”

That produced another grin from her sweet mouth. “I don’t do anything before coffee.” Scooting around him, she said, “I’ll make the coffee.” Filling the carafe from the sink, her back to him, the questions began. “So…your accent, is it Russian, or thereabouts?”

An easy one first. Good. “Yes. I grew up in a small village just outside of Saratov.” Plagued with an inner turmoil of what truths to expose and what to suppress, he realized a human part of him still existed. He made the decision to hold onto her…build a trust…protect her, and if that meant withholding, that’s what he would do. He wouldn’t lose her.

Enjoying the sight of her moving about the kitchen invigorated him. These feelings were nonexistent since the change and before he became tainted. He resigned himself to the fact that he lost this forever. Her shoulder length hair swayed with her movements. Her beautiful soft skin with live blood flowing underneath it, her narrow hips, all of which he intended to worship…forever. Her plump rear bore light marks from his belt. The need to take her again, now, challenged his restraint.

Opening his mouth to speak, anything to subdue his yearning, she turned to face him and asked. “Before we take this any further…I need to know what was going on last night.”

Not his initial impulse, but he decided to toy with her. He sensed she could handle it, and wouldn’t accept it for long before she demanded the answers she really needed. “I had the pleasure of feasting my eyes upon you, Kotyonok. I followed you home, and to my ultimate surprise, you left the key in the door, allowing me access to your home.” Placing her hands on her hips, she pursed her lips, but he continued. “You were in bed, in all your naked glory, and I couldn’t resist tasting and feeling you from the outside in…and spanking your lovely needy ass.”

His recount of their evening altered her breathing, and he heard her pulse quicken. She even paced in front of him before she scolded him. “Maxim…you know damn well that isn’t what I’m talking about. Are you a fucking murderer?”

Surprised by her outburst, he answered in a calm, authoritative tone. “Language, Kotyonok, very unbecoming from someone so lovely.” He hated lying, and prided himself on only doing so to survive. For now, he must do it out of necessity, necessary to keep her as his. “No. I am not a murderer. That was James. He drinks too much, and never learns. He is killing himself. I would not normally have treated him so shoddily, but I was worried about you.” The lie executed, he hoped this won more time with her. He decided he better continue, remove any possible concerns from her mind. “His girlfriend was on his way to take him home. I attempted to have him walk it off a little.”

Considering this, her brow furrowed, resulting in a cute crease in her forehead. “To answer your earlier question…on Sundays I go and see my father. Usually, I get him out of the house. Take him to eat.”

That let him off the hook. His self-control waned, as thoughts of taking her as his again dominated his mind and body. He must handle this right. Scaring her off was not an option. She was his. Moving in front of her, he placed his right hand in her hair, tilting her face to look at him. “Though I would love nothing more than to spend the day with you, you have plans, and I also have an engagement.” Gazing into her beautiful face, it bewildered him how much she affected him, reaching places he believed died in 1917.

He placed his cheek on her forehead. He savored her sweet warmth. Clearing his throat, he pulled back, giving her a quick kiss. “I very much want to pick you up…say around 6:30 this evening and have you attend a small art show at a gallery downtown with me.”

Smiling, she nodded. “I would very much like that too.”

 

AUTHOR BIO:

 

I grew up an Army brat, so my childhood involved moving every three years. However, truly a southern gal, I currently reside in Alabama with my husband, two Chihuahuas, a mean cat, turtle, and a teenage daughter. I have two sons, who live on their own, and a stepson and stepdaughter.

 

Romance novels have always been my first reading choice. I’m a hopeless romantic, and that trait materializes in every aspect of my life. “Wearing your heart on your sleeve” has been a common phrase repeatedly heard throughout my life. Writing romance and happily ever afters comes naturally.

 

Whether a result of my childhood, or not, I love to travel. Warm weather and beautiful beaches are always my choice destination.
