"Night's Promise" [Children of The Night Series, Book 6] by Amanda Ashley (aka Madeline Baker)

Author's Book Description : For beautiful heiress Sheree West, vampires are more than a fantasy. They are an obsession. Night after night, she dresses in black and immerses herself in L.A.’s goth club scene. Searching for a lover who is more than a man. A creature of the dark who lusts for her blood. A legend who lives in the shadows and not just her dreams. Then, one fateful night, she meets him...

Derek Blackwood is no ordinary vampire. Descended from a bloodline as old as Cleopatra, and blessed with unearthly powers of seduction, he is everything Sheree wished for—and more. When he takes her in his arms, she is powerless. When he kisses her neck, she is his. But when the full moon rises—and passions flare— something is unleashed in Derek he’s never felt before. Something wild. Something dangerous. Something he cannot control or stop...unless she can save him.

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars, a girl with an obsession of vampires finds what she was looking for and maybe a little more then she can chew...

For someone who hasn't read any of the other novels in this series, I was able to understand the plot while thoroughly enjoying the characters. Mara holds her world, and what she wants, together by shear will if not power. Sheree is a very naive girl but because of it, she is able to open her heart to Derek and love him through anything. Derek is very suave yet vulnerable and that combo is what helps Sheree fall in love with him. Together, Sheree and Derek are a sweet couple who make their love for one another pull them through all of the obstacles that get in their way.

Overall, I liked this novel. Yet, I just wish that Sheree could have dealt with her circumstances better then she did. In addition, the way this novel lays out I kept on thinking that there would be a "miracle" of some kind or to have something else unexpected to happen by the end of it and it just never happened, which made me a bit disappointed.

I do recommend this novel to anyone who's a fan of the series and/or to those who like paranormal romances.

Book Teaser(s) :
Tugging on his hand, she led the way to the sofa and drew him down beside her.
He slipped his arm around her shoulders, and tucked her against his side.
Sheree snuggled against him. Was it possible to be both werewolf and vampire at the same time? What would it mean for the two of them if he changed into a werewolf and stayed that way?
"Is that what you're worried about?" he asked.
"Derek, you've got to stop reading my mind! It isn't fair."
He brushed a kiss across the top of her head. "I'm sorry. I can't help it." ~ within Chapter 25
