Resisting Darkness

A Forest of Darkness Book 3

Ethan was a powerful Master Vampire, he wasn’t supposed to need help. Beckoning home the only vampire he’d ever made in order to exact long overdue justice, Ethan’s link to this killer was driving him mad. As he focused on his plans for what, and who might be left behind once he rights the heart wrenching wrongs of his past, a beautiful new vampire in town threatens to distract him from his mission.


Harmony snuck into the rumored supernatural nirvana of Atlanta, GA with weapons and an attitude. Forever searching for the elusive something or someone that could satisfy her restless vampire soul, she was ready for anything that came her way… or so she thought. A murdered lover, a killer who thought he’d redeemed himself, and a sexy man that calmed her itch to move on overwhelm her and force her to decide what she’s willing to do for love.



Praise for Resisting Darkness…


“Yes! Third time is a charm! I’m extremely glad to be able to write a good word for Resisting Darkness. Depth, intrigue, mystery and love…all of them combined in this great tale. Ethan can’t make heads or tails of what he wants to do more and beauty with an attitude only seems to make it worse! From beginning to end, an eventful story chocked full of “eye-openers”, “wait and sees”, then, that “can’t wait” feeling! Awesome job and thank you for the privilege to read it.” Reviewed by JSDaniMine for Reading Alley
