Book Description

As Charmeine and Tabbruis unite to proclaim their love for one another it becomes apparent a dark task has presented itself for the ill-fated lovers to overcome. Even with the beautiful union between Tabbruis and Charmeine, destiny will surely reveal itself.

Being the Queen of Light, Charmeine is fated to bring light and love into the world, but yet her personal life can in no way interfere with her task. Devoted to Tabbruis and her son, Shane, it is all she can do to focus.

As the rule of engagement commences, she must first step up to the plate and bring forth a change to an endless feud which has already been acclaimed centuries into existence.

As King of Darkness, Tabbruis has been placed in his position for a purpose. His love for Charmeine has only brought peace and clarity into existence for him. With his family now back together, he must stand against his own kind, not only to protect what is right but also to defend the world from the impending darkness.

Family bonds only strengthen the ties. Shane introduces his proclaimed love into the picture and in a jaw dropping course of events, love is tested and the family is torn apart. They say that love can span the planes of existence, but can this family hold tight until the end and keep it together just long enough to face forces of darkness that is so hell bent on destroying the world?

Carly Ann Wallace
Acclaimed Author of “Southern Summer” and “Concrete Angel”

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Second Book in the Series September 29, 2012
By Polly
Format:Kindle Edition
Excitement, excitement from the beginning of book two in this wonderful series! I absolutely loved Shane's surprise!! The excitement keeps building and building!
I loved Dmitri, loved the "family" What a lovely castle for their home. Charmeine is such a strong woman, she continues her training and the love between her and Tabburis continues to grow. The couple is learning more and more who they can trust and who they can't. Are friends really enemies? I loved the development of the extended family, each new member is such a great addition to the book and to the series. Book two in this series just left me wanting book three NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome continuation of the series! September 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Wow! I was loving these two at the end of the first book but now, I am loving them even more. In this book, Charmeine and Tabbruis are given the surprise of their lives as memories of their past love come to the surface. Some memories are good, while others reveal their ordeal may be far from over. Can they complete the dark task that has been set before them and once again be what they once where to each other? I definitely recommend this book as well as the first to anyone who loves a good deep story of love that can overcome any distance and any force imposed upon it.

Mactus - Latin - means well done, good job, honored, good luck.

Mactus (The Light-Bearer, #2)

Charmeine and Tabbrius awoke to Shane barging in, demanding answers. Shane was very protective of Charmeine and he didn't like the idea that Tabbrius could be taking advantage of her.

Tabbrius told him that he had been an orphan, like Charmeine and that he was also a vampire. Charmeine went on to tell Shane how they had found out that Tabbrius was a Blood-Hunter and she was a Light-Bearer. Tabbrius explained that they were sworn enemies, but their love was something special, their hearts beat as one, and Tabbrius could no longer see a life without her.

Shane proceeded to tell them, that he was also an orphan. He told them about a dream he had. It was the same dream that Charmeine and Tabbrius had been talking about. They had all been together. What could it mean?

Then, everything came rushing back to Charmeine. She told them what she remembered, that her and Tabbrius had been married and Shane was their child. They had been a family in Heaven. Shane was the one to voice the question - Why? Why had they forgotten? And what had happened to separate them?

Hurt, pain, and loneliness poured from them, only to replaced by love, joy and a sense of belonging.

Tabbrius' voodoo stare told them to do as he said, when he told them to get ready to leave. They were going to Romania. Dimitri had sent Tabbrius' "brother" to collect them.

They were attacked at the airport. The fight was brutal and to the death. No one had known, not even Shane, that he had powers, but when the Blood-Hunter took Charmeine, Shane was the one who saved her.

Tabbrius had seen a darkness surrounding Charmeine, but said nothing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can love conquer? July 4, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This series is really heating up!

In Mactus you get the same magnetic romance between Charmeine and Tabbruis, along with some huge surprises.

I was either sighing over Char and Tab, or chuckling about Shane.

I also did a lot of `take this' and `take that' when the evil-doers showed up. Every time one fell, I'd do a fist pump!

Emily's love for her characters is shown in their love for each other. Never have I read a book with such love and devotion in a family. I get a goofy grin on my face when they share their emotions so freely with each other.

He leaned to her and whispered, "Semper tuus ero, Charmeine."

She whispered back, "Semper tua ero, Tabbruis."

There is more than one love story being told in Mactus. And Charmeine has some heavy decisions to think about. But I believe this family is tough enough, strong enough, to triumph over any obstacle.

As I closed the book, I studied the cover and my mind wandered. And I dreamed.

I can't remember what I dreamt, but the feeling of joy stayed with me all through the day. I'm sure Emily's characters had something to do with that.

Each book gets better and better as you become more committed to this family.

Light and dark. Angels and vampires. The Light-Bearer series casts a spell of charm and holds you tight.

Emily gifted me a copy of this book. My review was honestly given.

5.0 out of 5 stars Semper tua ero April 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
So I read "Charmeine" the first book in this series, I fell in love with the story and the characters. Charmeine full of light, love and energy, literally, also a great sense of humor. Tabbruis, a 8,000 year old BloodHunter, turned good and fights for his kind who are like him, they only feed on animals not humans. He's dark, handsome, a vampire and loyal. Dimitri, one of Tabbruis's BloodHunter brothers, loyal, knowledgable because he's the oldest of them, also very handsome. Shane, Charmeine's friend since they were young. They are in Romania now, they had to leave NYC because a BloodHunter was after Charmeine. Tabbruis has his home there and feels they will be safe there with Dimitri. We meet new characters in this book that I also fell for. A couple big secrets revealed throughout this book. A family finally back together have to fight with their lives to stay that way. Will they be strong enough to bring down the Elders? Does bringing Charmeine to Romania bring her closer to death. When I wasn't reading, I was wondering what the characters were up to! The author does such a great job with personalities of the characters I get emotionally involved and can't wait to get back to them. LOL! Awesome! Now I get to read the last book, I'm looking forward to it, also dreading it being the end of my time with all them.

More About the Author

Emily wanted to tell the story of two star-crossed lovers who had to battle Heaven and Hell to be together. THE LIGHT-BEARER SERIES was inspired, it is similar to you or I watching a movie.Emily pictures the characters in her head going through vivid descriptions of each scene. There are so many nuances going through her mind that she cannot type fast enough. CHARMEINE is the first novel in THE LIGHT-BEARER SERIES. Followed by novels MACTUS, ACCENDO, and SEDITIOUS. The Fifth Novel in THE LIGHT-BEARER SERIES is a block-buster... RANSOM, which will be released in 2016. She is currently writing the Sixth Novel, CONUNDRUM, to be released in 2017. Emily is an Author at PDMI Publishing. She also works at a Fortune 500 company, has her Master of Business Administration and owns her own Publishing, LLC. Between Work, Writing, and taking care of family, she runs on coffee and determination!
