Erotic (Vampire) Paranormal Romance
Rating: 4 Cups
Maxine Twilight took over Temperance, the Chicago bar, after her grandfather’s death, ten years ago, left it to her mother. She refurbished it, turning it into a fetish bar. Temperance is her home and she cannot bear the thought of losing it.
Zachary Fox destroys vampires, not try to save them. When his ex-wife, Tessa, calls from the Windy Cindy, needing a favor, he heads that way. Meeting an owner like Maxine puts his libido into overtime.
Maxine feels Temperance is her whole life. Her brother, Jimmy, manages it, and together they turned it into a hot spot for vampires. When a slayer enters, killing a girl in Temperance, it is Tessa, one of her newly hired employees, who phones her ex for help. Maxine wishes she had not phoned for Zachary the slayer to come to their defense but the police are of no help, believing the undead have no rights. Her mind quickly changes when she meets the gorgeous hunk. No matter how Maxine tries to shove thoughts of Zach out of her mind, it grows harder by the minute. Someone is targeting Temperance and Zach believes Maxine is the next victim. He will do everything to unravel the mystery while keeping close tabs on the lovely Maxine.
Wow, Zach is a passionate hunk that knows how to add the charm. This vibrant character arouses quite a stir when he enters a room. Hot-blooded, and downright charismatic, he knows how to turn heads. The chemistry between Maxine and Zach is robust and blazing hot. I love the additional cast in this well-written tale. Twilight’s Embrace has outstanding vampires, sharp dialogue, and anticipation that thrills. Ericka Scott takes a motivating plot, lively characters and adds just the right amount of suspense to make this read electric, I want more.
