Embracing Love’s Hunger

Jeff D. Ellis’ next thrilling romance in the Illicit Seattle series – available on Amazon!

The Vampires and the Sylph both rely on their vast information networks to finance their organizations, gained through blackmail and other means. Betrayal and corruption are always the order of the day.  Trust was usually the way to an early death. Was an alliance between the Sylph Council and the Vampire Clan even possible?

Most Vampires are a prisoner of their hunger, something Greta uses to control her Seattle Clan.  But John wasn’t like the other Vampires. Over his long life, he had trained himself to control his physical hunger and feed off others in tiny amounts of energy, which relieved his needs and separated him from those who were controlled by it. As Greta’s second, it was his duty to oversee the alliance with the Sylph. But his heart hungered for love. He hungered for the family he once had. His regret drove him to explosive anger and threatened everything.

Rhi knew trusting her Sylph sisterhood was dangerous. She had worked hard at her marketing career to avoid being too much a part of their organization. But when she realized her niece, her dead sister’s only child, was being forced into representing the Sylph in the alliance, she knew she had to protect her. Only then did she realize this would thrust her into a relationship with the man who broke her sister’s heart.

Was trust between them possible? Will the new alliance open new wounds and entice other Veiled into a fight for power? Will they be able to control their hunger? Or will their hunger destroy both groups?
