Blurb:
This novella is intended for Mature audiences only. There are scenes not suitable for readers under the age of 18.

Thread One, Adina Falling, is the first novella in the Threads of Fate Series.

Best-selling erotica author, Adina LaCroix lives a fairly charmed, normal life. Born a Vampire , Adina is forever 21. She is successful, beautiful and wealthy, the envy of women and the object of desire for men. Her days are occupied with more human pursuits such as writing and avoiding unwanted phone calls from her publisher and her mother. With nightfall, however, her Vampire nature takes over and her hunt for blood and sex consume her.

Wanting to keep her conscience clean, she refuses to kill her prey, usually men with dark secrets. Instead, she uses the gift of mind control to implant permanent fears into her victim’s minds, ones so horrific that they will live in fear of death if they continue their evil ways. It was her way of doing the world a favor.

After her divorce from Michael Diamante, one of the most power-hungry and evil vampires in the world, Adina has remained single. Threats of permanent death from Michael have made her hesitant to find a mate. However, rumors have begun circulating around plans the Elders, the governing body of Vampires, have in store for her.

Plagued by a recurring nightmare, Adina begins a quest for answers. The only problem, instead of finding what she has been looking for; Adina is faced with more questions. Questions in the form of two men, Caleb Locke and Xander Stark.

One man holds promises of undying love and passion while the other holds the key to unlocking her secrets, and maybe even her heart.

Adina Falling

Review:

This is a great erotica with paranormals. However, it reads more like a prequel to the whole series and it cannot stand on its own as one story. It mainly serves as an introduction to all the key players and the mystery of disappearing paranormals, which may lead to the enslavement and eradication of supernatural beings by humans.

The story introduces Adina, a brewing conflict against vampires, and her crazy ex-husband. Her two love interests comes at the last few pages. I love the intrigue and mystery surrounding one of her love interests. Adina never actually meets him until the last page, but we get snippets of the amount of influence and relations that this unknown character has. This is really well done. The other love interest is a total surprise for me.

There are many F/M and F/F sex scenes. This girl goes all out and we do get a pretty good sense of the paranormal hierarchy with vampires on the top and the norm in this society. And the norm is plenty of sex, few restrictions for vampires, and everyone loves to party. There are also fae and vampire relationships. Fae blood is addicting for vampires and a popular vampire drug contains fae blood. It is interesting to see how a fae and vampire can be in an equal relationship. I'm hesitant to call this a paranormal romance because the romance doesn't come in until probably the sequel.

Even though it has a cliffhanger ending, the story is fast paced and the build up of mystery and suspense is wonderfully done in the breaks from the erotica. I look forward the sequel.

Excerpt: 

Downtown Birmingham was the happening place tonight. Full of sex, desperation and alcohol. Not a good combination for mortals but a succulent feast for vampires. I could sense that I was the only vampire in the city, at the moment. Most of my friends were hanging out in Detroit. They didn’t want to venture into the “burbs” this evening. No reason to really. So, I was soloing it this evening.

I only preyed on men while many of my kind were indiscriminate. I went after cheaters and criminals, it was the least I could do to aid society. Savory characters, in more ways than one. Men with hidden agendas and dirty secrets. Like the one I was stalking tonight. These were the ideal quarry.

Walking a little further, I felt him. Stronger. His thoughts. His essence. I knew I was getting closer to him. I shuddered again, anticipation rolling down my spine. I probed his mind and for a moment, I actually felt sorry for his wife. He was a prick, without a doubt. His character didn’t matter to me, I wouldn’t be with him for the long haul. I was simply going to use him to meet my needs, however temporarily long that would take.

Without realizing it, I had stopped in my tracks. I had arrived. Looking up at the awning, I realized I was finally at my destination. Effortlessly pulling open the heavy door, I walked down the stairs propelled by the heavy masculine pheromones beckoning me. Taunting me. Teasing me by mixing itself with flowers and spices. I felt a tugging in my sex, a desire I couldn’t wait to drown in.
