I’m happy to introduce to you all to the Sanguine world created by Melissa R Smith! I’ve had a lot of fun reading this series and I hope you it will interest you.
Six Hours to Sunrise
After being told by her unconventional preacher father that she has to marry a man she’s never met, Madeline Stevens checks herself into a hotel room, determined to end her suffering. Little did she know, a glance at an ad in the hotel’s phone book would lead her to a mysterious man named Reece and the beginning of six hours she would never forget.
There is one problem.
Reece Summerall is no ordinary man. A Sanguine who’s existed for over a hundred years, he never thought it was possible to find a companion until he became completely blindsided. When Reece is forced to take a drastic step in order to save Madeline’s life, he unwillingly binds the two of them together forever. When she learns the truth about him, will they be able to go their separate ways or will their strong bond bring them back together? Or will her father’s teachings ultimately drive a wedge between them?
Devani Daniels learned that lesson the second a mysterious envelope was placed in her hands at a local blood drive. Little did she know that this seemingly innocent gesture would not only lead her into a whole new world, but to a reunion with Roman, a special friend from her past. However, the discovery that Roman is Sanguine tests Devani’s long standing fears and faith in her own beliefs. For the daughter of a former leader of the extremist group that opposes Sanguines, being with Roman violates the Legacy Act and threatens to separate the two of them forever.
Is love strong enough for Devani to risk the only life she’s ever known, for an uncertain and potentially dangerous future?
I’ve been writing for about twelve years now, beginning with fanfiction. I published my first book in 2001, with a revised version in 2004.
My hope is to find a good following of readers who enjoy my work. I try to write stories that feature strong female characters, usually over the age of 25. I also keep my sexual content to a minimum, for those who prefer less erotic and more romantic.
Paranormal is my genre of choice, but I also have written historical romance, which I hope to publish very soon.
