An ancient curse...
A dangerous love...
Only she can change destiny.

Attending a vampire themed masquerade ball may seem like an odd way to spend an evening, but Nora is sick of frat parties and bars. Meeting Alec was just a bonus. Despite their immediate attraction, Alec is wary, however, of getting too close; when Nora pushes it, she learns that he has secrets that could destroy them both. Is she willing to risk everything for a man she barely knows? How far into darkness will he take her?

Meanwhile, Nora is being hunted by someone linked to a curse as old as man. Soon, she finds herself in the middle of a conflict between two men she cannot resist. Can Nora save them both - when one is destined to die?


“So, turns out Lilith has been less than forthcoming,” Alec says.

“Damn demons.  Can’t trust ‘em,” I reply.

“Not a demon,” Caleb corrects.

“Fine.  Damn immortal creatures spawned from the Garden of Eden who are kind of evil and like demons, but not demons, because they don’t come from Hell, and are not vampires, because you use that word sparingly, even though you drink blood and are basically vampires.  Can’t trust ‘em.”
 Remember your Bible stories?  Have you ever heard that Adam had another woman before Eve?  Her name is Lilith and she is reported to be the mother of all vampires, including Cain and Abel.  Their names nowadays are Caleb and Alec…. and Nora is in love with both of them.  The three of them will seek to end the cycle that has bound the brothers and threatens the world. 

Warning:  This is erotica – nobody under 18 should be handed this book.  Now, that said, I’m an adult.  I loved it!!  There is comedy, sarcasm, drama, lust, and love.

 I’ve heard of Lilith before, but this was the first story I’ve read that I can remember Lilith being more than just background information.  She was a frightening, but wonderful character.  Professor Henry and beautiful Scarlet are Nora’s friends and they join in the apocalypse-diverting battle plan. Caleb, Alec, and Nora are the focus of this story.  Nothing in this story was predictable, so I most sympathized with Nora.  Not just because we are female, but because she was with me in not knowing what was coming until we were there.  I hope Ms. Daltry will continue this story.  Lilith is still out there!

 Editing:  B. A few sentences were difficult to read due to structure/missing words/extra words.

I have already picked up a few more stories offered by Ms. Daltry and I will be ordering more.
