Cantonelli's Crest: Purple Haven by Angel Musk
Whoa, whoa, whoa! Aren’t Vampires, those nasty and powerful creatures of the night, sucking the blood out of their victims, using their powers and immortality as superior beings to their advantage, trusting few, always ready for a good bloodbath? Get ready to see vamps in an entirely different light, perhaps the true version of who and what they are and how they really feel about humans, family and the creation of new vamps! Prepare to admit that just maybe author Angel Musk has it right. Cantonelli's Crest: Purple Haven is not a tale of sparkly vamps, but rather a look at vampires who love, are and will do anything to protect humans, as well as their own kind from evil. The Cantonellis break the vampire mold.
There was a prophecy told long ago, and its time has come to be fulfilled. One mortal turned vampire will become King and his offspring will be the most powerful creature on Earth, and there will be peace, or maybe great wars, but vampires will hide no more.
Grant was dying, and his gift to all was to remain at the helm of his company, making it as successful for all and maintain job security for those he employs, all while keeping his secret demise just that, secret. Little did her know he was under the scrutiny of the vampire world, that his integrity and business acumen would make him a target for vampiric immortality. His change was monitored and aided by a vampire who would become his true love, his eternal partner, together, they would be the fulfillment of the prophecy. Of course, first they must survive a brutal wedding day attack.
Angel Musk has written a gentle vampire book, one I could give to my mother to read, one that takes those baby steps for anyone not sure about the paranormal romance genre. Yep, this is fresh, filled with caring vampires, a patriarch/ruler who selflessly plans for the future of the world and some of the most HUMAN vamps I have ever met! Definitely light reading, definitely fresh, I mean, seriously, how many times have you put a vampire book down with a happy smile? I'm not saying this is the next forever classic, but I am saying you should give it try!
I received this copy from Angel Musk in exchange for my honest review.
