A Vampire’s Thirst: Dark, Dangerous, and Undeniable!
Victor Strong, ancient Vampire and hard-as-nails businessman, has enjoyed centuries in the human world by following one simple rule: Keep a steely control over your dark side. Then it comes, like a thief in the night, overtaking him mind, body, and soul… a strange, unexplainable ‘Thirst’ that not even he could deny.
With the craving for blood, and other darker, more enticing desires, rapidly growing out of control, Victor suddenly fears not only for his sanity, but his very life.
Holding on by a thin, unraveling thread, Victor is pulled from the brink of madness by a sweet, tantalizing aroma. So hypnotized by the scent, he is forced to find its owner, compelled to find the most elusive of all things; a mere myth among his kind. The Vampire’s Bloodmate.
Can he reach her in time? Can she save him from himself? Or will Victor be lost to his dark side forever?
The hunt is on. The battle fierce. Only the strongest survive A Vampire’s Thirst!
Book 1 in A K Michaels’ brand new series A Vampire’s Thirst full of hot as hades alpha males in this smoking paranormal romance story.
Grey has always enjoyed the finer things in life. He maintains control over his darker, blood-thirsty side by being “human” as much as possible. He’s immersed himself in the daily life of the living, as a history professor, and art historian. He has no patience for the seedier parts of humanity and revels in honor and propriety. That’s what keeps his thirst at bay, along with the threat of The Directive.
He’s been enjoying his mundane life, until he’s contacted by member of The Directive and ordered to complete a task, one he he’s been dreading for centuries. A favor he must repay for a time when he exercised less discretion.
There’s a Supernatural wreaking havoc in Atlanta and he has to stop them. That’s when it strikes: The Thirst. Like a bolt of lightning crashing into him and rendering him powerless to resist the allure of his target. His control has deserted him and his power has increased beyond his comprehension. He’ll defy anyone and everything, including The Directive to fulfill his desire for his blood-mate.
Will anyone survive Grey’s dark thirst?
