Erotic Romance, Paranormal Romance, Vamps & Shifters Romance
Kidnapping, erased memories, and monsters that will not stay under the bed ignite the pages of this thrilling romance novel. Uncover the truth as a vampire, unable to control the fates when a little girl becomes a woman, finds his desire to possess her may be her doom.
Theirs was a forever love. At least it was supposed to be…
Truman and Ember met in a cold, dark basement on the day that was to be her last.
Kidnapped by a predator at ten years old, Ember wasn't long for this world. But even Truman, a three-hundred-year-old vampire, was incapable of escaping his humanity with her.
He follows her through her life to ensure her safety, unable to stop fighting for the scared little girl he met so many years in the past.
Truman, like all others of his kind, has the ability to erase memories of himself, and he uses this ability to come in and out of Ember's life while protecting her from the knowledge of his kind.
When Truman finally caves in to his desire for Ember, he is forced to take the most precious memory she holds. But he never imagined he'd lose his ability to return those memories. After Ember is attacked, Truman becomes responsible for a woman without a shred of remembrance of him or their long history together.
She doesn't trust him, and he resents her cruelty toward him, but as much as she breaks his heart, he can't give up on them. As Truman fights to win back her trust and remind her of just how good they are at falling in love, a threat looms closer and closer.
Can he save her once more from the clutches of a monster intent on destroying her? Or will her life be lost before her memories are ever found?

Elizabeth Finn puts her own personal spin on the paranormal with her erotic new vampire series, The Immortals. Ingredients include a hot, domineering man; a shy, inexperienced girl; a bad guy; and her signature ingredient: hot, erotic bedroom scenes that leave you drooling.
Truman has been protecting Ember her entire life. In order to keep her safe, he has to wipe her brain of her memories after each encounter – but the feeling of safety, desire, and trust when she's around him remain even if her memories do not. After more than a decade of keeping his distance, Truman decides he'd rather meet her as a human and get to spend quality time together than return her memories only to have to wipe them again a day later. They spend a summer getting to know each other the traditional way and fall passionately in love with each other.
After a summer of watching Truman become even more consumed by his human than ever before, a vampire ruler decides enough is enough. He wants Truman to take his rightful place in the family and is willing to kill Ember to guarantee it gets done. When Ember permanently loses every memory she ever had of Truman, he has to figure out how to convince a woman who is terrified and bitter that she once loved him and could love him again, all while trying to keep the vampire community satisfied in the process.
Elizabeth Finn is an author I faithfully follow – if she wrote it, I want to read it! And while vampires are usually a surefire way to get me invested in a story, I felt like this one didn't pack quite the addictive punch that I've come to associate with anything Elizabeth Finn has written. It was almost like it had the formula I expected, but not the depth and feeling. That's not to say it wasn't good, it most definitely was; it just wasn't the same level of excellence as some of her other works (The Devil's Pawn, Restoring Jordan).
I would still recommend this to anyone who enjoys passionate love, hot sex, vampires, or all of the above – and from hints given at the end as to what is in store for book #2, it looks like the entire series will be delectable.
