I’m on a vampire kick lately and luckily for me, some of my favorite authors are having their vamp books release. One such title is Claire Thompson’s, Outcast, which is book two in her True Kin series. If you haven’t read Claire before, you have to – I decree it. She’s marvelous!
Check out this blurb:
The adventure continues as the vampire Julian Gaston returns to France with his new lover to continue the search for the elusive Adrienne. The beautiful vampire had been cast out of her circle three hundred years before, for the crime of “turning” Julian from human to vampire with the forbidden exchange of the sacred blood. Following leads and intuition, Julian discovers and confronts Adrienne, still as beautiful and enigmatic as three hundred years before.
Julian and Grace forge their own newly found love, delving into the dangerous delights of Dominance and submission, while learning to trust one another in the face of Julian’s rediscovery of his first “true love”. The mysteries of Grace’s origin as an abandoned orphan, revealed now as vampire in her own right, begin to unravel. Adrienne, granted a pardon by the Elders of her circle, is no longer forced to spend her life in secret, stealing moments of passion with the man who swept her off her feet a hundred years before. Daniel O’Shay, the dashing Irish vampire, has secrets of his own which threaten to destroy the passion he shares with Adrienne.
Margo and Robert, two humans who were dramatically affected by their interactions with Julian and Grace in Sacred Circle, arrive unbidden in France, Margo to seek her dream to be “turned” and Robert to continue his destructive meddling, determined to expose the vampires for what they are. See the story come full circle, as vampire and human alike struggle with the age-old dilemmas of life and death and most importantly, true love.
