Diego Rivera's capture during the Spanish Inquisition
changed his life in more ways than one. Cold-hearted and
ruthless, Diego was saved from his torturers by his maid
and a vampire's kiss. He's had more than 500 years to
reform himself and has worked relentlessly to make up for
his past cruelties. His passion for art has brought him
wealth and enlightenment and given him an outlet for his
desire to make amends.
Ramona Escobar is dying. A fatal disease is wracking her
body, but before she can let go, she has to make sure her
mother is cared for. Diego has been selling (and starring
in) Ramona's paintings for years, and he always makes sure
she gets top dollar. Ramona turns to him now, hoping he'll
be able to help her get enough money to take care of her
mother after she's gone.
The attraction between Ramona and Diego has lain dormant
for years, but the recent death of his wife has opened them
up to possibilities neither of them considered before.
Passions are stirred, especially once Diego realizes he's
the star of her erotic paintings. But Diego has sworn to
never become involved with a human again, and Ramona knows
she won't live for much longer. There's only one way to
solve both of their problems, but do they have the courage
to face eternity together?
BLOOD CALLS is fast-paced and entertaining -- a perfect read
for rainy a weekend or a day at the beach.
But for vampire Diego Rivera, Ramona Escobar's sensuality
proved even more potent. He had to resistâ€”for there could
be no such thing as love for him. Five centuries ago Diego
had vowed never to turn another with the bite of the
undead. And though Diego knew the dark underworld of New
York was no place for a human, his unslaked desire
commanded that Ramona be his for one nightâ€¦.
But when the artist's life was threatened by a reclusive
millionaire who had used Ramona's skills to build a forgery
ring, Diego needed to unleash his inner demon to save her.
Then he was faced with a choiceâ€”lose the woman he lovedâ€¦or
turn her with a vampire's kiss.
