Francesca Marie Stewart has never wanted any man as much as she wants Jake Rios. His chiseled body and dark, intensely masculine energy draw her like a moth to a flame. But Frankie has been burned before, and now a mysterious figure from her troubled past has resurfaced with a terrifying new threat. Can she trust Jake not only with her heart but with her very life?
Jake’s hunger to possess this beautiful redhead goes beyond searing desire. He’s a vampire, and his very existence depends on bonding with a mate. He aches to ravish Frankie, but he must take it slow—for what he will ask of her will require profound sacrifice even as it gives her unimaginable pleasure. And once he has claimed her—body and soul—Jake will go to any lengths to protect her.
In the novella A Vampire's Savation by Virna DePaul we are met with a the world of vampires on the verge of a huge change. The majority of the vampire race is ready to come out into the open and be recognized. Francesca and Jake both work for the governor and are dealing with the chemistry they have and the attraction to the other as well as all the duties of being a part of the governors staff. We are also introduced to the tragic past that Francesca has had to deal with and how it is effecting the current political situation.
This is a good start to a series, it is a little sexy, a little but mystery/suspense and a whole lot of hot vampire. As is the case with novella a lot of the time I found the story seemed to be just a little rushed. I will be looking forward to the continuation of this series as it is intriguing.
