#WriteWed Power Love Redemption Hate in THE CALLING IS REBORN Vampire Series

One of the things I’ve loved about writing THE CALLING IS REBORN Vampire series is exploring the motivations that drive some of the immortals in the stories. My desire to explore is driven by that age-old adage about absolute power corrupting absolutely. Imagine the kind of power that immortals have, whether Slayer or Vampire. Imagine what they can do once they are possessed of that power.

I’ve loved seeing how characters that start out good, like Blake from FURY CALLS, who started out protecting his younger brothers from abuse, lose their goodness when they’re turned. Blake embraces his vampire power and not in a good way, but I also love a good story about the strength of love and redemption. That’s what FURY CALLS is all about and I loved seeing how Blake retrieves the goodness inside him in order to protect the woman he loves.

Taming the Vampire Box SetIn DARE TO LOVE from the TAMING THE VAMPIRE Box set, Vampire Slayer Benjamin has maintained his goodness despite seeing his family brutally killed by vampires. Unlike some of the other Slayers, who can’t wait to sanction a vampire, Benjamin retains the belief that even vampires can be good. When Benjamin’s brother is twisted by hate that destroys him, Benjamin has to deal with the consequences, but can he resist the power he’s been given and find balance in his new life? Can he allow himself to love another Slayer while fighting to retain the goodness inside him?

That battle to allow love to overcome hate, to be redeemed when power threatens to corrupt Benjamin’s soul, is the heart of DARE TO LOVE, the next story in THE CALLING IS REBORN Vampire series. DARE TO LOVE is the start of that story and I will have Benjamin and his love, Rhiannon, in future stories so you can see where their love will take them.


    Months earlier, Slayer Council member Benjamin hadn’t been ready to die and begged for his life from a compassionate vampire. Being turned and living as a vampire had created a new hell for him, however. He was no longer welcome in the Council, but tolerated as their ranks had been depleted. He knew that it was just a matter of time until someone staked him, but he wanted to make the most of it, especially when it came to Slayer-in-training Rhiannon.

    Rhiannon had been attracted to Ben when he had been her instructor in the ways of the Slayers. His death had caused her grief, but his return was proving to be even more difficult as she battled her growing feelings for the Slayer-turned-vampire who was shaking up her beliefs in all that she had been taught.

    Can Ben and Rhiannon dare to defy the rules of the Slayers and find love or will Fate make them enemies sworn to kill one another?


DARE TO LOVE is part of the TAMING THE VAMPIRE box set which is now available for pre-order. It’s specially priced at 99 cents, so don’t miss this awesome deal for 25 ALL NEW releases that are not available anywhere else.

#FridayReads VAMPIRE REBORN Novella from The Calling\Reborn Vampire Novel Series

VAMPIRE REBORN NovellaIt’s Friday! Whoop whoop! Doing the happy dance and looking forward to some spring weather this weekend. I’ll be taking a stroll with a friend along the boardwalk, but also getting to work on some new things, namely, an erotic novella for an anthology with some friends and FIGHT FOR LOVE, the next book in The Calling\Reborn series.

But first . . . I just released VAMPIRE REBORN, a novella in the series.


In this story, Diana and Ryder are acclimating to the many changes in their lives. Ryder in particular is having a tough time dealing with the beat down that he suffered at the hands of psycho vampire Connall Burke, Michaela’s father.

But he’s also dealing with something else. Something almost unbelievable, namely that he might be turning human again. WHAT?! Yes, you read that right.

VAMPIRE REBORN explores the issues that Diana and Ryder are dealing with, but also expands on the slayer mythology and the origins of slayer, vampire and human life forces. It also sets up FIGHT FOR LOVE where Diana and Ryder, along with Ben and his new love interest, will have to face some very startling truths about themselves and about the foundations of all that they believe. FIGHT FOR LOVE will be out in early summer, but VAMPIRE REBORN is available now and is specially priced at .99 for a limited time.
