Touching Forever

This was erotica like I have never had the pleasure of reading before. The build up to the relationship between Lily (an immortal white tigress) and Tenzin (a rare immortal vampire that somehow retained a heartbeat and his life) is painful but oh so very nice. Both characters bring this story of spiritual enlightenment, growth, forgiveness and closure, alive with beautifully written chemistry that you can feel.
Lily purchases Tenzin and brings him to her compound of enlightenment where she houses women from all walks of life that have left abusive situations behind them and are looking for a better life. Lily herself has endured the physical abuse of a vampire she had been given to by her own father to marry. Due to her history with vampires, Lily clearly and understandably, hates vampires and will not invite one anywhere near her compound, except for Tenzin, whom she does not know is a vampire due to the fact that he is not one of the walking dead vampires but has maintained a heartbeat after his transformation.
The plot thickens when the daughter of Lily’s deceased husband returns into her life searching for vengeance and is determined to kill Lily, or better yet, see her suffer the loss of those she loves. How will Lily feel about Tenzin when she discovers that he is indeed also a vampire, and how will she rid herself finally of a past that keeps haunting her?
Excellent storyline and plot twists and turns! I fell for the characters and was drawn in by their psychological and physical battles. I am looking forward to reading more stories by Sedonia Guillone...hopefully in the near future.

Book Blurb for Touching Forever

Historical/ Vampire

Tenzin will pleasure Lily, taste her and caress her with every erotic art he possesses - and prove to her that not all vampires should be slain.

Lily Tan is a Tigress, an immortal practitioner of the erotic arts. She gives men erotic pleasure in return for their life force, but gives her heart to no man. When she wins a mysterious and handsome Tibetan wanderer in an underground poker game, Lily's control over her heart and body begin to slip. His potent maleness and gentle caresses prove a combination that may tame even the wildest Tigress.

Ex-monk Tenzin Gayatsu has a secret - he was attacked by a demon and made a vampire. A living vampire. The raging desires for blood and flesh send him looking for a teacher, one who can teach him to make desire his ally. He finds that teacher in Lily, but cannot reveal his secret shame especially once she tells him of her hatred for vampires.

Tenzin's loving hands and kisses ease away the wall she's built around her heart. He brings her to heights of ecstasy she's never known before. Yet just as she's beginning to trust him, a tragic event reveals that Tenzin is a vampire, a member of the race that once enslaved and tortured her.

Lily wants to push him away but she cannot. Another vampire is out to kill everyone Lily loves and she needs Tenzin's help. She must trust him and pray he is the man he claims to be. She must hope he will truly be the jade dragon she so desperately needs...
