Broken Heart, Oklahoma is home to those who are happier to rise after sunset. It has been that way since an ancient vampire became sick and attacked a bunch of parents. That vampire was the hunky Lorcan O'Halloran brother to Patrick. One of those parents was Eva LeRoy, town librarian and single mother to a daughter named, Tamara. She and Lorcan seem to have the same likes they both seem to love books. He however has been writing for longer than she has been reading though. He even met the inventor of the Dewey decimal system, the only other thing that they don't have in common is that she has a psychic link with animals. She can hear what they are thinking and feeling in a sort of Dr. Doolittle type of way. Which makes her very wanted by all parties good and bad, Lorcan decided that he would make sure that she was protected and so was her daughter.
Eva gets kidnapped by the Wraiths and Lycans and somehow gets the taint which is a sickness for vampires. Lorcan can hear her thoughts as well but will not tell her why he can, so when she is kidnapped it helps them to find her.
A vampire hunter has also shown up looking for Nefertiti who is bound to Johnny. Eva thinks she has sensed her as a cat and that she has been calling to Eva, but she is not quite sure, and lets Lorcan know. The Lycan triplets seem to have no love lost for Nefertiti and set out to look for her as well. Each time Eva sees Lorcan she notices that there seems to be a feeling coming from him other than just a protection feeling she definitely feels more than just wanting to be protected for him. But there must be certain things figured out first like how she got the taint.
Michele Bardsley weaves a magical, suspenseful, steamy romance into the next segment of the Broken Heart books. She sheds light into Lorcan more letting us know just how intelligent he is and how romantic he can be. Michele doesn't let us down and gives us another magical and wonderfully entertaining story. I will definitely read anything Michele Bardsley puts out about the Broken Heart clans.
being a mother is never easy-especially when you're undead.
Eva LeRoy, Broken Heart, Oklahoma's librarian, got "vampified" when everyone else did: during a rogue vampire's feeding frenzy. But books still make her undead heart beat-and, strangely enough, so does Lorcan the Loner, the vampire who killed her...
