"The Blood of Anteros"
Book Description: Cruel circumstances turned Curry Brennan into the wretched monster he hates and refuses to accept, but when an expected turn of events releases him from the bond of his obsessive maker, he returns to the home he knew 161 years earlier and finds the return of happiness and joy in something he didn’t know existed. Puzzled by his growing attraction to Chansey Leclaire, a human, he is unable to resist the captivating relationship that threatens to reveal his existence as a vampire. He eventually discovers the reason he was destined to find what he didn’t know he searched for and is faced with the cruel realization that the living and the immortal undead will always be separated by one thing. Eternity.
My thoughts: Curry is one of the good vampires. He has been in bondage to his terrible maker for far too long. At the eclipse he makes his own wish. He is miraculously released from his maker and leaves in the daylight.
The book is told from Curry's point of view. He travels to the home that he built over a century ago. He does this to gain closure from his tortuous time with his maker. He needs to go to the scene where he was turned. It is inhabited by a wonderful older couple who have a granddaughter who is staying with them. Her name is Chansey and she stirs his emotions. Something that a human is not supposed to do.
There are obstacles, of course. That is one of the compelling aspect of a book. :) Georgia Cates has a great writing style. The book flowed very well and stayed interesting. I will definitely check out the next installment.
