What if we knew how to live forever? Is any cost too great?

Ava Brandt has been plagued with indecision her entire life; her direction influenced by the people around her, not her heart. When a chance encounter with a stranger challenges everything she thought she remembered from her frightening past, she must confront hidden memories to survive.

Ben Pearson, descendent of a famous physician, is living proof of his ancestor’s miraculous discovery two hundred years ago. Through a combination of blood transfusions from unsuspecting donors, he uncovered his own fountain of youth. As an unwilling convert, Ben continues to fight for those who are dying; their murderers content to kill innocents to prolong their own lives, no matter the human cost.

Finally accepting the truth of her past and the dreams that have plagued her, Ava comes face to face with her fears. But just as she comes to terms with this new reality and new feelings for her ageless rescuer, she finds herself in the middle of a battle that has raged and claimed untold young lives for centuries. 



I have to say, stories that are written in the state that you live in, make it a lot easier to follow, because places they name you know exactly where they are and you can picture it in your head much easier. With that said, this book wasn't bad at all. I am finding that certain type of romances aren't really my thing anymore. That was a downfall for me sadly.

This book was very suspenseful, and that had me on the edge of my seat for most of the book, which I loved. The characters were very relatable, which also makes it very easy to read, and I really enjoyed this different twist on the "life blood" aspect, it isn't something that I have read before and it's a different twist on vampires, but they aren't really vampires.

Again, the romance part. It wasn't poorly written or anything like that, it just seems like a type of romance that I've have seen over and over again, it just doesn't do much for me anymore. Not taking a dig at the author or anything because it was well written, I guess I am over the typical pinning but denying myself type of romance.

Overall this story was very good. The actual plot of the story really stood out and overshadowed some of the aspects I didn't like and I was able to still be surprised and feel for these characters. Good read, if you love the romance, then it's a great read for you :)

About the Author-
HK lives in the frozen hinterlands of the far North.  The long, cold months provide ample opportunity to hunker down with her computer and create adventures far more enticing than scraping ice and getting frostbite.

Between books HK reads voraciously.  Anything with a good plot and compelling characters are her broad parameters.  One is as likely to catch her with a copy of Don Quixote as with the latest Kristen Ashley.

When not writing or wowing the corporate world by day, HK practices martial arts, plays with her dogs and matches wits with her teen. Next winter she intends to brush up on her Spanish and escape the cold for somewhere more tropical.
