Heather Killough-Walden - 2012
70,000 words)In the completely reconstructed Thorn and Grace, an old tale of historical romance is given a very dark make-over. The story of knight meets maiden becomes twisted and shadowed, be-fanged and fallen. A prince turned predator hunts for the one who has betrayed him, in turn becoming a king corrupted by the bitterness within. Will the one he is hunting escape him? And if she doesn't, will she be able to reach the man inside the monster before it's too late?In Relentless: The Patrick Sinclaire Story, readers are treated to the re-visioned and border-line erotic telling of the tale of a handsome, world-weary vampire sovereign and the woman he would literally do anything to claim as his queen. Intensely arousing, stimulating, and both emotionally and physically provoking - this is not a story for the shy. This is a get-hot-under-the-sheets story. Don't read it if you're expecting the development of an extremely deep and meaningful relationship in less than 80 pages. Do read it, however, if you love vampires, dominant men, and sex that leaves you breathlessly re-reading these pages.
