KINDRED TRILOGY - by J Thiele
Welcome to the world of the vampire Kindred. This trilogy by Aussie author J Thiele consists of 3 (well duh) quickies each telling the story of a different vampire and their quest to find that one person who will feed what their soul needs the most.... and it's not blood.
Each book can be read as a stand-alone but each also leads into the next. While these vampires are hot and the books are definitely steamy they are so much more in a quirky and unexpected way. To begin with, each of the main vampires is linked to each other in some way and they all really seem to hate and resent each other. It's brilliant and really makes the stories interesting, you never know if they're going to work to help each other do just drive a stake into the next.
THIRST - book 1
Dimitri has been looking for his Kindred for years and is elated to finally find her... amazingly in his own home town. Unfortunately, she's dying a hard painful but fast death. When Georgie starts having hot steamy dreams about an imaginary lover all she wants to do is embrace the final sleep of death and be with her dream man forever... except he's not really in her head. Dimitri's blood has the ability to save Georgie and a little goes a long way. But will it go far enough or will she have to give up her humanity in order to save her own life and spend forever with the man of her dreams who owns her heart and soul?
HUNGER - book 2
Brandon/Rouge has been running for decades. All he ever wanted was to satisfy the constant hunger in his belly. The 'powers that be' want him dead... hell his own progeny wants him dead. It's really not his fault he keeps accidentally either killing or turning anyone who he feeds off. He's just so damn hungry.
Then he meets Lilly, best friend of his progeny's kindred and a spunky firecracker who wants nothing to do with being with a vampire or his kindred. However, at the same time, she's not about to let a bunch of mad old school vamps threaten her friends, and that includes Brandon. Running for your mortal life and their immortal life really brings a couple closer. Close enough that he'll break through her reluctance and she'll finally admit what she really wants from him? Who knows...
LUST - book 3
Whatever emotion you're feeling the strongest when you are turned follows you through your immortal life, a constant frantic need that can only be quenched by your Kindred. And if you happen to be about to have mindblowing sex... well you go into immortality with a permanent boner and are doomed to be the horniest vampire in existence.
Carlos has spent the past few years fucking his way coast to coast just trying to get through the nights. Once upon a time, there was that one redhead who left him completely satisfied and he won't rest until he finds her again. But when the insane 'authorities' who kept him prisoner and took advantage of his man meat, come after Carlos and his friends can they fight back and keep everyone safe? Including his favourite human Ruby who's the only one who gets it done for him these days. Is she his Kindred? Is it the mystery redhead? Are the women both for him or maybe they're for each other? And can they all survive with their immortality and humanity intact?
