After reading Spank and Run, I wanted to check out another of Renee Rose’s stories. After looking over the offerings, I was intrigued by Deathless Love. Who doesn’t love a paranormal romance, right?
I admit it – I loved this read! I had huge amounts of difficulty when it came to putting it down. Seriously. I had to know what was going to happen next between Dom & Kate.
Wow! I can’t even being to describe how hot-hot-hot Dom, short for Dominic, is. What a freaking sexy vampire! He is an awesome character – one you fall for right from the start and one you cheer for the entire way through the story. Doesn’t hurt that he’s Italian and the owner of a club – No Return.
Kate, a human, is a grad school student and leader singer in the band, Morphs. The book opens with the band finishing up a gig, and Kate witnessing Fox, another band member, drinking blood from the neck of a sexy boy toy. Kate nearly flips out, but Fox explains things to her and stresses that she can’t spill his secret.
The shy singer has always had a thing for Dom, and now that she knows he’s a vamp, her fantasies explode with visions of him spanking her, taking her, and drinking her blood.
Dom and Stella aren’t thrilled that Kate knows about their kind, but Dom makes Fox responsible for her even though he feels very protective of Kate.
One evening, while on break, Kate over does the shots of tequila. She ends up falling off stage in the middle of a performance. Oopsie! Enter Dom having a chat with her – a chat that ends with a spanking and some hot sex! Whoo hoo!!
As time goes by, Dom and Kate grow on each other and their relationship grows and deepens – including the spanking component. I don’t want to spoil the ending, but there was nice surprise. Ms. Rose even included a bit of suspense with Roxanna, a devious vampire, who has been targeting older vampires while turning the younger vamps into minions.
I must praise Ms. Rose’s writing style. She explains the “rules” her vampires have without hitting the reader over the head with them or without dumping them all in one paragraph. Her characters have their flaws – Dom and his rule about mortals, for instance – but they find ways to overcome and grow throughout the story. The pacing was perfect – the story moves along nicely while the characters quickly grow on you. For me, there was the right mix of spanking, and the sex was very hot!!
I want to share a sample of her writing. At 14% Dom and Kate are out to dinner:
She had a confessional tone, and didn’t it just make him lean forward, hungry for her next words.
“Will you do it again for me? What you did last night?”
Oh god. His fangs elongated. Fuck breaking up. He’d never expected her to be so bold when she was sober. Her words ignited a fire in him that would be painful to ignore – he’d gone rock hard. He wanted her – he wanted to be in her, sucking her blood, making her moan and yes, spanking her beautiful bare butt.
If you like spanking, hot men (or vamps in this case), and a shy, yet tough woman, you need to read Deathless Love.
5 out of 5 stars
