Book Description

LOVED is Book #2 of the #1 Bestselling series THE VAMPIRE JOURNALS, following Book #1, TURNED, which is a FREE download!

In LOVED (Book #2 in the Vampire Journals), Caitlin and Caleb embark together on their quest to find the one object that can stop the imminent vampire and human war: the lost sword. An object of vampire lore, there is grave doubt over whether it even exists.

If there is any hope of finding it, they must first trace Caitlin’s ancestry. Is she really the One? Their search begins with finding Caitlin’s father. Who was he? Why did he abandon her? As the search broadens, they are shocked by what they discover about who she really is.

But they are not the only ones searching for the legendary sword. The Blacktide Coven wants it, too, and they are close on Caitlin and Caleb’s trail. Worse, Caitlin’s little brother, Sam, remains obsessed with finding his Dad. But Sam soon finds himself in way over his head, smack in the middle of a vampire war. Will he jeopardize their search?

Caitlin and Caleb’s journey takes them on a whirlwind of historic locations—from the Hudson Valley, to Salem, to the heart of historic Boston—the very spot where witches were once hung on the hill of Boston Common. Why are these locations so important to the vampire race? And what do they have to do with Caitlin’s ancestry, and with who she’s becoming?

But they may not even make it. Caitlin and Caleb’s love for each other is blossoming. And their forbidden romance may just destroy everything they’ve set out to achieve….

Although LOVED is the sequel to TURNED, it also stands alone as a self-contained novel. LOVED is 51,000 words.

“LOVED, the second book in the Vampire Journals series, is just as great as the first book, TURNED, and jam packed with action, romance, adventure, and suspense. This book is a wonderful addition to this series and will have you wanting more from Morgan Rice. If you loved the first book, get your hands on this one and fall in love all over again. This book can be read as the sequel, but Rice writes it in a way that you do not need to know the first book in order to read this wonderful installment.”
--Vampirebooksite.com

“THE VAMPIRE JOURNALS series has had a great plot, and LOVED especially was the kind of book you will have trouble putting down at night. The ending was a cliffhanger that was so spectacular that you will immediately want to buy the next book, just to see what happens. As you can see, this book was a huge step up in the series and receives a solid A.”
--The Dallas Examiner

“In LOVED, Morgan Rice proves herself again to be an extremely talented storyteller….What was most enjoyable about LOVED is the history. When you get actual historical connections written in a book, you have a tendency to become much more fascinated in what happens to the characters. I feel LOVED would appeal to a wide range of audiences, including younger fans of the vampire/fantasy genre. The romance is PG-13, with no inappropriate love scenes that would have parents worried. LOVED is much deeper than the first installment. It develops and explains the characters in more detail, which helps the reader understand them better. The story moved along well, and ended with an unexpected cliffhanger that leaves you shocked. Engaging and fun, I found myself enjoying this book much more than the first and I am highly anticipating the next installment.”
--The Romance Reviews

Books #3--#10 in THE VAMPIRE JOURNALS are now also available! Morgan Rice's new trilogy, THE SURVIVAL TRILOGY, a post apocalyptic thriller, is now also available for sale. And Morgan's new epic fantasy series, the #1 Bestselling THE SORCERER'S RING, comprising 10 books and counting, is now also available--with the first book, A QUEST OF HEROES, as a FREE download!

3.0 out of 5 stars What if Indiana Jones was a vampire? May 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Loved is the second book in the Vampire Journals series, which takes up where Turned left off. Caitlin, at eighteen years old, has discovered she is possibly half vampire and might actually be The One, the person destined to find the lost sword which could stop the upcoming vampire/human war. She and Caleb, a vampire who has lived thousands of years, undertake a quest to discover her ancestry in hopes of discovering the location of the sword. Caitlin's fifteen year old brother, Sam, is on a quest of his own to find their father, whom they never knew. Along the way, both Caitlin and Sam will encounter situations and people that will test their belief in their own inner strengths as well as their physical limits.

Loved reminded me a bit of a younger version of an Indiana Jones type tale as Caitlin and Caleb are led on a trail from one clue to another, each leading them a little closer to their goal of finding the sword. Each clue leads to a historical destination where we are given a different explanation of the historical facts that we learned as children. The author gives us a different twist on vampire lore, with two distinct covens of vampires. There is good versus evil, where the good are trying to live their lives amongst humans peacefully and cause no harm, the evil are truly evil beings with nothing but distain for both their vampire counterparts and the humans they must hide from. There are three different plot lines in the book, all of which are leading toward the same goal. Caitlin and Caleb's quest is the main plot, Sam's search for their father factors in and yet another plot plays out with a truly evil being in the search as well. Amidst everything else, the attraction between Caitlin and Caleb continues to grow adding just another twist to the story.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice but... June 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story is good but... the lack of editorial is really annoying. It seems she can't even remember the ages of the characters or their 'history'. Simple mistakes such as 'Caitlin turned to Caitlin'. Come on.

Aside from that OK for a light read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Much Better than Book 1 (3 1/2 Stars really) March 29, 2011
By E_Lo
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you read the first book you know the story was short and left you hanging. This one delivers a bigger cliffhanger but there was a lot more excitement. The characters were a little more developed too. There were plenty of typos, enough to distract you. This was also a short book, albeit much longer than the first one. Also, if you do not like a book to end on a cliffhanger maybe wait til the next one comes out.

I think what I enjoyed most about the book was the history in it. I like when a book includes actual history in a fantasy book.

For the price and originality of the story I do recommend it. I could not give it more than 3 stars due to length and typos.

Happy reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating! Keeps you enthralled... April 15, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to say, after reading the first book, which was shorter, I was excited and couldn't wait to get ahold of the second book, Loved. It was one of those take your breath away type of books that kept you reading so you could find out what happens next. The characters are easy to follow and the story line is well written. It keeps your interest from the first word into it. I am a 38 year old woman and even though these type of books are written towards the young adult audience, us older folks can enjoy reading this story and anticipate the next book in line to come. Keep up the great work!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a ride! April 11, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the first one with some interest, but this one really kicked it up a lot. This one gave me more of the story about what was going on and built on the relationships. It was a great adventure/love/drama/mystery story!
