In the first two books of Clara Winter's Immortal Kindred Series, Alexandre comes off as contriving and self centered. He wants what he wants and doesn't apologize for getting it because he knows best. But as we see in King of Kings, Alexandre is much more than what he seems. And when the love of his life shows up...he's more than willing to risk his life for her.
Love has no limits…
Alexandre has retreated from the world. He has no one to love, nowhere to call home. While licking his wounds in the middle of nowhere, Alexandre is approached by Irish lass, Bria. She has a proposal for him; to follow her to Ireland and fight demons.
Alexandre finds this amusing, but intriguing. More than anything, he is curious to see the individual who sent Bria, someone from his ancient past.
In Ireland, Alexandre confronts a dilemma greater than fighting demons. He must face down fiends of all kinds, deciding once and for all who he really is. Sparks fly between Bria and Alexandre, adding to the already complicated situation. Can a bad boy vampire really change?
The King of Kings is set in southern Ireland with a glimpse back to Ancient Egypt.
“What is that?” Bria’s words rushed out. She swept the room with her light as Selene jumped to her feet.
Bria’s light fell on the stone wall to our right. We saw them at the same time. Hundreds of spiders, the size of my head, were streaming from a crack at the far side of the room. The beige of the stone was becoming a solid black with hundreds of arachnid bodies. Only they weren’t staying put, they were coming toward us. If we stood there any longer, they would have us pinned in the back.
“Go!” I shouted.
Selene took off, but Bria seemed frozen to her spot. She didn’t move. I snatched her up, knocking her light from her hands as we flew with inhuman speed back toward the small tunnel where I had panicked before. Demon-hunting Bria apparently drew the line at enormous spiders.
I held her close to me as I darted through the opening. She was limp and quiet until one of the diabolical demon insects landed half on the back of my neck, half on Bria’s hand. She shrieked so loudly, I thought she might cause hearing loss for the both of us.
Fall in Love with this Vampire Bad Boy!
