“”You are not alone. There are others like you…”
When she read those words, Eleisha Clevon knew she had to respond to Rose de Spenser’s letter and connect with another vampire. Both reluctant predators, they venture outside only when the hunger becomes unbearable, try not to draw attention to themselves—and feel guilty when ending human lives.
But Eleisha has learned a way to draw blood from her victims without killing them. She wants to share this knowledge with like-minded vampires and create a haven where they can exist together — and forge a united front against Julian Ashton, a vampire who has been hunting down and destroying his own kind for the last century.
To win Rose to her cause, Eleisha must risk meeting her face-to-face, knowing full well she might be an agent of Julian’s — but never expecting the revelations Rose has to share about Eleisha’s own vampire origins…” (from BarbHendee.com)

Memories of Envy
“For a vampire, killing is easy. She makes it fun…
A reluctant predator, Eleisha Clevon has made home for herself and other vampires like her in Portland. And, in spite of the risks, she is determined to locate all vampires still existing in isolation, so she might offer them sanctuary — and more importantly, so she can teach them to feed without killing.
To Eleisha’s shock, she learns that a lost vampire may be living as close as Denver, Colorado… but she has to approach this one more carefully than ever before.
Simone Stratford is a beautiful, delicate-looking creature from the roaring twenties who enjoys playing elaborate games with mortals, stoking their passion for her before finally draining them of their blood.
When Eleisha and her protector, Philip Branté, go to Denver in search of Simone, what they find is far worse — and more seductive — than either one bargained for. Philip’s love for Eleisha and his ability to fit into her world are pushed to the breaking point, as is Eleisha’s fierce belief in her own mission.” (from BarbHendee.com)
