A small idyllic town nestled in the Appalachian Mountains is home to a thriving community. People are happy, crime is practically nonexistent, life is good…unless you’re Sabine Crowley, who has been chosen to be the next blood bag for the vampire lord who has protected the town from otherworldly creatures for 200 years.
Sabine has big dreams for her life, and none of them include becoming a vampire’s concubine. On her 18th birthday, she seeks solitude to process the cruel turn her destiny has taken. As she sits alone in Cleary Park, a sexy stranger approaches her. He’s tall, mysterious, handsome, and a complete jerk. He soon reveals himself to be a vampire and she’s terrified of him and her strange attraction to him. She wants to get as far away from him as possible, yet finds herself wondering if she’ll see him again.
Remy, the cocky newcomer vampire, has been summoned by his maker, Bastian, to take his place beside him in the hierarchy of vampires inhabiting Willow Creek. He’s none too thrilled to be stuck in a boring little town in the middle of nowhere where he’ll have to feed exclusively from the girl he’s been paired with. He’s repulsed by the whole situation.
When Sabine tries to run away from her fate, Remy is forced to follow and bring her back. They’re unwillingly thrust into each other’s lives and reluctantly find an undeniable attraction between themselves. Will they ever look past their contempt for one another and act on their urges? Or are they destined to hate each other forever?

I have to admit this book surprised me. I thought it was another Vampire love story but it has a nice little twist.Way back in history a vampire decides to help Willow Creek. If they stay and give a citizen to himevery 10 years of his choosing he will protect them from outside creatures."If you choose to stay, I will protect the residents of Willow Creek."Of course the citizens are concerned that he will run rampant through their town, feeding on one and all."How will you feed? I cannot and will not agree to vampires running wild and drinking the blood of my family and friends whenever you please. Then one person will be offered to me and mine so that we can feed exclusively from the offering."Remy and Sabine are two such people. They are destined to be together. Remy the vampire and Sabine his "food" exclusively to the end of her days.This story was very entertaining. Sabine does not come willingly submit to this arrangement and evenRemy is not happy about being called back to learn that he will be forever stuck on Willow Creek and tohave Sabine on his conscious.The ensuing getting together of these two is lively and entertaining. There is even a vampire who threatensRemy and Sabine's life together. If you like romance and deep abiding love that conquers all then this is the story for you. I look forward to more from this author and Willow Creek.Short, I know but this book was actually better than I thought it would be. Look forward to seeing the characters again, perhaps they will grow some.
