Vampires exist among us. They can be our neighbor, best friend, our child's teacher ...

They alter their aged appearance based upon the amount of blood they consume. They move to a new area, drink a lot of blood, and appear young. Slowly they limit their intake of blood and age, right in front of our unsuspecting eyes. After decades, they fake their death, move, and do it over and over again.

Most live quiet lives in an effort to blend in.

Some however want power and control.

The Colony is an elite group of vampires sworn to protect the President of the United States from these rogue vampires.

When Raymond Metcalf, vampire coven master of the Colony, teams up with a federal operative of the human female persuasion–who has no idea that vampires even exist–will his mission or his heart be compromised first?

Career military woman, Alex Brennan, is being offered the promotion of a lifetime and with it a romance that she has desperately been seeking. Does she dare accept the position as Director of the Colony, an elite group of deadly creatures of the night and risk a dangerous romance with a man who isn’t even human? 

Together, can they save the President?

Bio:

Eternal Service – One Page Teaser

Raymond smiled at her. It was a beautiful smile, not fake or forced. You can always tell when it’s real. His black colored eyes held the smile, not just his luscious, full lips. Alex noticed his hair was a bit damp, probably due to a last minute shower on his way over. His hair was parted tonight, and a curl of bangs hung lopsided onto his forehead. It gave him a Superman appearance. She always did like Superman.

Alex knew her pulse sped up as she took in the visual strip tease in her mind. She thought back to their earlier conversation. Humans and vampires could have sex together. Sex. She swallowed hard. She hadn’t thought of having sex with a man in a long time. Her heart sped up even faster. She wondered if he could hear it. If he did, he didn’t show it. He just sat sipping his wine, looking sexy as hell.

Her glass was in her hands, and she took a gulp of wine hoping to squelch the heat she was feeling. Instead it fueled the flame. Would sex with a vampire be different than with a human? If it were, she was betting it would be better. The sexual relationships she had in the past, if she could remember that far back, were moderately satisfying. Definitely not romance novel, page turning, steamy … but satisfying.

Blinking a few times, she realized she was staring at his crotch. Could she be more obvious? She knew in her heart that she was going to take this promotion. She couldn’t start a romance with a team member, it wasn’t professional. She wasn’t that type of woman. Plus, there was no guarantee that he was interested in her that way. He had treated her with nothing but respect.

“Alex?” Raymond asked.

Alex looked up, making eye contact. “What?”“Are you okay? You’ve been quiet for several minutes.”

Romantic Suspense is a new genre for me, and this was just the book set to sink into for one thrilling ride after another.  I loved it!!  It was a mix up of all different levels of suspense and types of stories and ALL the plot lines were amazing!!  I'll give a little teaser about what I liked from each story!!

To Catch Her Man by Charity Pineiro:
This one was a great read.  I love those females who don't believe in finding the one because well...to me they are relatable.  It makes the story so much better if they are proven wrong.  This story's moral struggle is amazing.  It just goes to show you sometimes finding out the truth puts you in a worse position!

I'll Be Watching You by Tina Wainscott
This one was completely heart-wrenching.   You just feel for Kim throughout this whole story.  This is one of those you should always do whats right even if the consequences are harsh.  It was a good story with an even better mystery twist.

Bedeviled by Maureen Child, USA Today Bestselling Author
LOL...this one was a lot on the funny end, which made the story more believable.  I could actually see this happening to me and re-acting similar!!!

Protective Custody by Paige Tyler, USA Today Bestselling Author
This one was definitely the hotter side of suspense!!  Wooooooohoo!   Lots of action, in and out of the sheets.  This is a hot little quickie and on the cop fantasy side...and totally yummy!


There's A New Witch in Town by Tawny Weber, USA Today Bestselling Author
This one was incredibly cute and laugh out loud funny.  Divorced and looking to start over, I swear she picked the grumpiest town in the world to re-locate to!  But with the help of her family, a HOT contractor, and a little buried magic this witch totally rocks her way through this towns secrets....and finds closure and true love!!

In His Control by Nina Bruhns
This one is for the girls that love a completely dominate man!!  I'm not sure I could forgive him for his role (even if he is a cop and she is a thief) but our main character finds him irresistible!!  This is very hot and very intriguing!!

Chosen By Sin by Virna DePaul
This one was had an intricate paranormal plot, with a vast array of interesting characters.  I enjoyed this book and would love to read the entire series (if there is one?)  The mythology was great as were the dynamics.

Imposter: The Protectors Series -- Book One by Karen Fenech
This one was a suspenseful action-packed book!  You have the wrongly accused, the cop hell-bent on taking her in, and an inappropriate attraction!! It was a good fast-paced and hot read!!

Dark Tide Rising by Kristin Miller, National Bestselling Author.
This one was big on the creepy factor. lol.   We have a serial killer stalking a small town in the mind of its soon to be victim...but it is only in her mind?  This one was good and definitely keeps you second guessing as to what is really going on.

Big Bad Wolf by Gennita Low
This one is not a paranormal....but it does have some hot military action in it!!!  The mystery is all around who is after the Big Bad Wolf...but while he is on the run, he manages to patch up a family that needed some shaking up and fall in love.

Found Wanting by Joyce Lamb.
On the run from her sisters husband, she has given all to protect her son.  She dodges him and tries to stay ahead, but a PI catches her in the end.  Big surprise that she was painted out to be the bad guy.  The PI is hard set against her and incredibly attracted to her.  Can she prove her innocence and save her son before its to late?

High Tide by Maureen A. Miller.
We end this book of edge-of-seaters in beautiful Hawaii.   There is always something lurking in the shadows when it comes to treasure, and our main characters have A LOT of trust issues to get over.  It ends sweetly and a great wrap-up to a great set of stories!!

This was a likable quickie!! Paige goes away on a business trip and acts totally out of character.  Which at her age is very rare.  She has been married to the same man since high school and while she doesn't love him, she remains loyal.  Dalton treats her badly and has cheated on her.  But all that changes when Casey walks into the room.  His ice-blue eyes seem to call to her and she is lost.  But will she be able to go back to Dalton's empty caresses after she's tasted fire?  Why is Casey so different?  Its not like he can read her mind...or can he?  This was a different type of Vampire novel that has covens and a hierarchy.  I look forward to reading more about this intriguing world!  Great Read!

For those of you that have read this previously...need to re-read!!  I loved the added content and more details!!  Thanks for the upgrade Mary!!!!

Author Bio:

~ New York Times and USA Today Bestseller

Hello, my name is Eve and I am a Canadian author who loves to write hot romance, usually with werewolves, cyborgs or aliens lol.

Be warned, I do have a twisted imagination and a sarcastic sense of humor something I like to let loose in my writing. I like strong alpha males, naked chests and shifters. Lots of shifters. In fact, you'll notice most of my multi partner stories revolve around great, big, overprotective shifters who just want to please their woman. I am also extremely partial to aliens, you know the kind who like to abduct humans and then drive them insane...with pleasure of course.

I love to write, and while I don't always know what my mind is going to come up with next, I can promise it will be fun, probably humorous and most of all romantic, because I love a happily ever after.

Thanks so much for coming by and checking me out. If you'd like to know more, read some excerpts or find out what's coming next, then please visit me at http://www.EveLanglais.com
