My Swoon for this week comes from

Prophecy - Child of Light

F. E. Heaton

First - The Blurb:

A vampire unlike any other, Prophecy lives life in the dark until the night she encounters a sensual dark-haired vampire who is both her enemy and the man who will change her world forever.

A loyal hunter for the Aurorea bloodline, Valentine is bound by duty to report her as the vampire of the prophecy, but he cannot shake the vision of them he saw in her blood. Torn between duty and desire, and determined to uncover the truth, Valentine goes against his order to execute her and kidnaps the beautiful Caelestis female instead.

Thrust into a terrifying world where the seven bloodlines and the Law Keepers are hunting her and her only hope for survival is Valentine, Prophecy battles her temptation to surrender to her illicit attraction to him and fights for her future.

When she discovers her extraordinary destiny, will she be strong enough to embrace it and stop a deadly war from igniting?

Second - The Swoon:
She closed her eyes when his lips brushed against hers in a tender kiss and she leaned into it, her own mouth exploring his. He released her other hand and she wrapped it around his neck, holding onto him while he encircled her waist with his arm and lifted her off the floor. She clung to him, her body moulded against his and their lips fused together in a kiss that began to turn passionate.
Her whole body felt warm and the stars on her skin burned in response to the feelings of elation running through her. Tracing her tongue along his lower lip, a thrill ran down her spine when his met it. Her fingers buried themselves in his hair, holding him against her mouth so that she could make the most of what was happening.
Third - My Thoughts:
Prophecy - The Child of Light is the first book in the Vampires Realm Trilogy.
At the beginning of the story, we are introduced to Prophecy, a young vampire who can't remember any of her human life and has been kept a prisoner in her home for the past 20 years. Finally daring to escape, she comes across a drunk man in a cemetary and makes her first kill.
Valentine, a 300 year old vampire who is from a rival family, sees her and is intrigued. Unable to resist the draw of her blood, he bites her. On consuming her blood, he discovers her identity. Reporting back to his leader, he is ordered to kill her but he cannot go through with it. Deciding to save her instead, the two of them embark on a journey which not only sees them forming a connection which is forbidden, but also begins to uncover the real reason for her existence.
I enjoyed the  story but found it a little slow paced. The cover eludes to a romantic entanglement, but to my disappointment, there were not too many swoon worthy moments.
My Rating for this one: 4 out of 5 stars.

  7. I could see how the book cover is misleading! This book looks like it would be heavy on the romance! That's too bad! I love the sweet, sexy, and sensual scene you chose to share :) Here's my Swoon:
