As each birthday passes, we become older and wiser. However, vampires don't age like we do. Since Lily has become a vampire and gotten married, we've waited patiently for the rest of her story. Today is that happy day when we finally get to read Lily Drake's second book! T. Michelle Nelson has created a character that isn't the usual simpering wallflower but is a strong woman...a mom...who has found the man who promised her a "happily forever after".
With a doting husband and a new job training a vampire military, Lily Drake was living up to the prophecies of being the best. Her life was seemingly perfect, until tragedy strikes bringing her a loss she's not sure she can endure.
The hard-working super mom / vampire slayer, Lily Drake, has just learned problems still exist even after you become immortal.
As everyone knows, even if you find your soul mate, you don't always get a happily-ever-after. Lily may have found temporary happiness being a newlywed, but the honeymoon is over. When she finds her husband going out for late night bites with another woman, Lily has to fight to try and regain what she wants most, love and a happy family.
If Lily thought being a single mom was hard, she’ll find being married can be a bloody mess.
After a romantic dinner at The Cove, Mount Vernon’s finest restaurant, Lily was not only stuffed but sleepy. She reluctantly changed into her hunting clothes, strapped on her custom-made sword and pulled her hair up into a tight ponytail. As she looked in the mirror, she caught the reflection of her delectable husband lounging on the bed behind her, watching her every move.
Stretched out like a lounging predator, Valentine smiled when he realized she was watching him. His infectious smile and irresistible laugh had made Lily fall in love with him. From the moment she’d laid eyes on him, she’d known he was trouble. She just never dreamed that trouble would be all hers.
“How am I supposed to leave when you look as delicious as that steak dinner I just had?”
“I think you’re supposed to wait thirty minutes before vigorous exercise. Just think of it as biding some time and hurry up and get back home to me.” He wagged his eyebrows.
“I feel like I’m neglecting you and Keaton with all this work Rose has thrown on me.”
“Baby, it’s important. I know that. When these recruits leave, we’ll tell her we need to take a family vacation and I’ll spend so much time with you that you’ll sicken at the sight of me!”
“Not possible, but that’s a deal. Talk to Keaton tonight and figure out where you guys want to go. I should get moving. I don’t want your cousin to make me look bad.”
Val chuckled. “We’ve already decided. I want to take you to New Orleans. As much as you love good food, you’ll never want to leave there. And baby, remember, training the recruits isn’t a competition.” Val paused, then crowed. “Well, with you and Matty, it’s always a competition. Regardless, please be careful tonight.”
Before Lily could do more than narrow her eyes at him, he continued, “I know you’re badass, darling. But you’re still my wife, and I worry. Be careful for me.”
Lily leaned down and gave her husband a light kiss on the lips and agreed. She knew what it was like to have confidence in a mate’s abilities, yet still worry. She was concerned about him every night he left the house to hunt.
