As a child, Marie Kenward enjoyed reading adventures about swashbucklers like Robin Hood, Peter Pan and the Three Musketeers, and cheering on superheroes like Superman and Batman. Her parents were avid science fiction fans, so she grew up watching TV series like Star Trek, Space 1999 and Battlestar Galactica. She fell in love with Luke Skywalker and cried when ET went home. And to this day, she swears she saw a UFO when she was 12. As far back as she can remember, Marie loved to write. She loves romance novels because of the escapism and the happily-ever-after endings, and likes to include paranormal elements in her works to add a surreal flavor.
Sometimes truth requires treachery...
Impressed into the Roman army, vampire Vasilios of Sparta learned to lie, fight, and kill in order to survive. He also learned loyalty and valor. These lessons serve him well for eighteen centuries until he's banished from his clan and betrayed by the leader he called friend.
An immortal without a cause.
A chance encounter brings FBI Agent Anne Mathews into his life. The obstinate redhead is on a mission to save her sister. Without Vasilios' help, Anne will never find her, let alone survive. But when an old enemy resurfaces, Vasilios leads Anne into battle to settle a score of his own.
Hell-bent on winning at any cost, Anne is no damsel in distress. It's a game of good vs. evil. And as Vasillios' passion for her grows, he'll be forced to choose between honor and the only woman to ever claim his heart. (Plus Novel - 70,000 - 99,999)
Sometimes, trusting your inner voice can be fatal...
He is Mikael macCumail, leader of a vampire clan. The oldest of his kind, he is considered invincible. Deadly. Most fear him, and he's lived unchallenged for over a millennia. Until the night he loses it all.
Stripped of his memory, stalked by vampires and vampire hunters alike, Mikael finds an unlikely ally in young hunter Emily Davenport. On the run with no one to turn to and no one to trust, the line between predator and prey begins to blur. In a world of unfamiliar shadows, Emily becomes his only light. Her beauty tempts him, her innocence disarms him. Mikael has waited centuries to find a woman like Emily, but when his past catches up with him and he discovers why his memory was taken, he must prepare to face an enemy he doesn't know how to defeat. An enemy with no physical body, a life form--an entity--that lives inside vampire blood, moving from one body to the next, killing.
And now it wants Mikael.
