Undeniable


L.J. Baker - 2015
    If that’s not for you, then maybe this story isn't either. Years after the Great War between the humans and vampires, the world is a very different place. Humans live under the rule of vampires, often becoming little more than slaves or personal blood bags. Ariana and her brother Chase have managed to live off the radar for twenty years with a small pocket of other humans, but when they are caught and forced into Vampire City, everything changes. The steaming hot vampire king, Alexander Morgan, takes a particular interest in Ariana. There is something about her that he can’t ignore. Despite her defiance and general loathing of his kind, he wants her, and she isn’t exactly against the idea. Ari grew up being taught that vampires were evil, psychopathic, killers. She had no reason to think otherwise. Vampires killed almost everyone she ever knew or loved. Yet when she finds herself with Alexander, there is an overwhelming connection that she isn’t sure she would fight, even if she could. But Alexander isn’t the only one she feels this bond with. She also can’t seem to stay away from his half-brother, West. Caught between everything she ever believed, and the sexy vampire she is quickly falling for, Ariana must decide if their relationship is worth being threatened by the humans, hunted by the vampires, and losing herself to some unknown force that is dragging her deeper and deeper into a world that not even Alexander understands.
