Chapter 1

Great, rain was the very last thing that Drade needed today but yet there it was streaming from the sky more like someone had dumped a bucket rather than a simple shower. The classic ’67 crimson colored hearse pulled up to the curb providing shelter until Drade stepped one heeled leather boot outside instantly splashing the water on the asphalt while the water from above soaked the red heads tan/gold trench coat. Calm as always Drade strutted up to the large Victorian mansion looking house she’d parked in front of, sliding the large key into the towering front double door’s lock allowing her to open them. Walking inside Drade removed the soaking wet trench from her person, hanging it on an engraved black wooden coat rack followed by rolling up the pant legs of her dark wash blue jeans in order to unzip the leather knee high boots she was wearing before kicking them off to the side. Sighing heavily Drade padded her way up the stairs towards the master bedroom however once pushing open the door the young woman was shocked to find candles everywhere with the scent of cinnamon floating through out and resting on the king sized bed with a deep purple quilt on it was a set of silk pajamas. Alarm filled Drade’s head for a moment but soon a smile crossed her features upon realizing whom had done this, glancing towards the bathroom with an arched eyebrow sure enough revealed Victor leaning against the doorframe with a warm smile on his face.

“What’s all this?” Drade asked, turning to slowly strut up to Victor.

“Just a little something for my girl,” Victor responded softly in his British accent

“Oh really?” Drade cooed slipping her right hand up into Victor’s plum colored, long hair.

“Mm-hmm, I do enjoy spoiling you,” Victor admitted as he slipped both hands around Drade’s waist causing the pentagram scars on his palms to rub across her bare skin thanks to the black Kevlar tube top she always wore providing the expanse of exposed flesh.

“Mm, I enjoy it when you do,” Drade agreed getting as close as she could to Victor, half lidded emerald eyes gazing lovingly into Victor’s bright blue ones while his bare chest allowed for warm skin to skin contact.

Victor chuckled before leaning forward to press their lips together in a romantic kiss until suddenly Victor slipped his hands down to Drade’s thighs to hoist the woman into the air. Drade gave a gasp of surprise followed by a wide smile as Victor carried the red head into the bathroom that would have put the bath houses of ancient roam to shame with its pristine white marble floors, white stone pillars, golden fixtures and a huge hot tub style bathtub in the very center already filled with warm water while rose petals floated delicately within it. Drade looked from the water to Victor with a huge smile on her features as he placed the young woman gently on the ground, heading over to the sink counter to grab a couple things as she undressed then gracefully slipped into the warm water. Victor knelt down right beside Drade’s head to place her MP3 player down, gently placing the earbuds into her ears before hitting play seeming to just make Drade’s smile all the wider if at all possible as he pecked her on the lips than left to allow Drade to enjoy the warm bath. After a few minutes passed Drade noticed the door to the bathroom open again opening her eyes to see Victor walking back inside with a silver platter in hand that when presented to her contained chocolate covered strawberries with flutes of champagne. Drade popped one ear bud out with a hum of approval as she shifted to get a better angle at the platter being placed near the edge of the tub but before she could grab a strawberry Victor beat her too it, picking up one of the chocolate coated fruits instantly getting Drade’s attention. Elegantly Drade’s lips parted while Victor fed the strawberry to her before offering up a flute of Champagne to wash it down with to which Drade happily accepted.

Once the delicious treat was done Victor took away the platter only to return with a cotton white towel that he offered by opening it up while standing right at the edge of the tub. Drade stood up, got out of the tub than allowed Victor to wrap the towel around her body, which he did before scooping the red head up bridal style into his arms to carry her into the bedroom where he gently laid her on the bed. Victor was just about to grab the pajamas that had been laid out on the end of the bed when Drade’s hand caught his arm gently yet firm enough to pull him back to her with a more seductive look now forming upon the young woman’s features. Victor snapped his attention right back to Drade with slight confusion at first but upon seeing the young woman’s bottom lip slip between her teeth he knew immediately where this was going. Slowly Victor slid up over Drade, one knee on the bed next to her while his other leg remained on the floor for balance with both hands leaning on either side of Drade’s body allowing his frame to loom over top of the red head’s own. Drade reached up to grab Victor’s glasses, pulling them off so as to place them on the side table before sliding her right hand around to the back of his neck as they kissed again only now the heat was felt in it allowing passion to fill the room for the rest of the night.

I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace.

annie08c: I really like this story, I can relate to it a lot and with how she feels, the boyfriend and the events that happened but I'm a little bit younger.

JONANNA: As an avid reader it is not often I say that about a book. The plot is what was different and the twists where unexpected. This book is defiantly a page turner and enjoyable read. I can't wait to reread this novel after a little editing to finish off the shine on this wonderful novel.

amarin8388: Bottom Line: I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Science Fiction. During my reading, I thought many times that this would make a good story for a movie. It reminded me of the StarWars movie franchise, not because of the plot but because of the diversity of chara...

Jason Phang: More, I want MORE! Your stories are keeping me from games and (gasp) even sleep! Each chapter brought fresh hooks that I willingly wolfed down (pun intended) and I just couldn't bear going to sleep not knowing what happens next to Lindsay and Wayne. I also loved how the epilogue was done. Excelle...

zoheusher20: What more can I say? The writing style and little details drew me into the book and for the entirety of the story I was Juliet. I felt her turmoil and emotions and every trouble or triumph as they arrived. This story was very different and had quite a few little but unexpected twists that made it...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

tsolaidowu: I want a continuation dammit....I loved this book and the 1st one. I can't believe this is it. I'm not ready to say goodbye to Jeff and Lorie; and the gang. Great book and storyline. You're a genius Madelyn.
