A happy childhood, a shot at a state championship wrestling title, a best friend, a boyfriend (albeit a secret one but that was okay because, once they graduated, that would change).
He had love, happiness…...a heart.
All of that changed in the blink of an eye.
One moment he was deliriously happy, looking forward to a future with Digger Brandt, building a life, a home, a forever, with him.
And then it was gone, disappearing like the tears that flowed down Zeke’s cheeks as he watched from the back of the church as Digger married Lisa - with his father sitting proudly in the front pew. Those tears were still flowing when he walked out of that church and went directly to the nearest recruiting office. Because he didn’t just lose the love of his life that day, he lost his hopes, his dreams, he lost…..himself.
For the next ten years he was a machine - the best Marine, the best friend, but like a machine, he did it all without a beating heart. His was dead…..or was it?
Was ten years too long?
Was a broken heart too much?
Zeke didn’t know. Hell, he wasn’t even sure he wanted to know.
From the moment Digger walked up behind him and said hello in that smooth, sexy voice that used to light Zeke up six ways from Sunday, the only thing Zeke knew now was that
he was about to find out.

Join Matthew and Sarah in this highly anticipated second installment of The Pearl Vampire Chronicles as they fight not only for their survival but also for the freedom of their fellow vampires.
They exist, in small numbers, entirely to control evil and protect the innocent. Their population is controlled by The Elders, five strong, ancient vampires. Only The Elders decide who becomes a vampire or know the process to create a vampire.
Yet, vampire Matthew is deeply in love with human Sarah and desperately wants her with him forever. So, he convinces her, and himself, to embark on a journey. A journey that will take them to the darkest corners of the vampire world - to Mexico, Peru, Nigeria, Cairo, Paris, Haiti and more - hoping that they will find the clues to the change process. Hoping that the clues that they do find are the right ones, because, if they’re not, Matthew could end up killing Sarah. Hoping that The Elders don’t figure out what they are up to stop them, permanently.
It’s a race against time. Time that Matthew has too much of and Sarah doesn’t have nearly enough.
In this first of a series, Sarah and Matthew’s journey is a tale of danger, intrigue, death, deception, love, passion and friendship that will draw you in from the first page, and leave you yearning for more after the last.
