Twice Bitten

Book two in the Dark Prophecy Series

Kris Norris follows up with a fantastic second installment to her Dark Prophecy Series as we meet Enforcers Gabe and Mathias. These twin brothers are more different than alike yet they are connected through their immortal bond. Mathias is a fun-loving almost impish, yet sexy and sensual hero who balances his brother Gabe's dark and brooding appeal. They complement each other and I don't think I would be able to choose between them and Ripley is so lucky she doesn't have to. I wanted to be upset at the two men using their vampire skills to lure Ripley in but I found that everything worked out for the best. She is a strong capable heroine and held her own with these two formidable guys. The sensual scenes were well choreographed and with every touch or caress the reader learns a little more about each of the three major players. It was nice to revisit some of the characters from the first book and I look forward to meeting others in the upcoming adventures and seeing how many more talismans there are and how many other sexy vampires have been created to protect them.

Gabe and his twin brother were turned into Enforcers in order to protect a sacred talisman and its guardian from landing in the hands of the wrong vampires. One dawn they bed down and the owner of the talisman shows up and awakens their desires. Ripley is surprised to find two gorgeous men in her old office and even more surprised to find herself wrapped in both their arms. She succumbs to her desires only to find out that the two men she has swiftly grown to trust have been keeping a major secret from her. Will they be able to save the talisman and their hearts as well?

Book Blurb for Twice Bitten

Twice bitten…once saved.

Despising the sight of blood isn’t a desirable quality for a vampire, never mind an Enforcer, a vampire sworn to protect a sacred talisman from those seeking its power. Couple that with a twin brother who can feel and taste your every sensation and immortality feels more like a curse. Too bad Gabe and Mathias’ troubles have just begun.

When the guardian of their talisman literally falls into their lap, they discover the draw of the pendant goes much deeper than just their pledge. It rekindles their sexual desires, and they’ll use all their vampire tricks to lure Ripley into their bed, and into their withered hearts.

But when Ripley discovers the truth, her life and the fate of the talisman are put to the test. Can the men earn back her trust or will this sunset be their last?

Reader Advisory:This book is part of a series, with characters reappearing in each book, though it can be read as a stand-alone story.
