True Love

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

Book Review: Conception by Sarah McCarty

Book 1 in The Others Series
BLURB: An unwilling victim of an experiment gone wrong, mother to a child who shouldn't exist, Eden Lavery knows only one person strong enough to stand between the Coalition’s fanatical quest for immortality and their threat to her daughter—Dusan Knight. Six foot three of solid muscle, Deuce wears his power with the easy confidence that comes from six centuries of commanding the Chosen, the inspiration for vampire lore. But Deuce isn't just the source of legend, he’s the man she loves. The man she’ll ultimately betrayed.

From the moment Eden reenters his life, holding the miracle of a Chosen child in her arms, Deuce burns with the need to complete their joining. Everything about Eden, from her sassy sense of humor to her delectably stacked body is made for him. But some things are easier decided than done. Amidst a race for survival, against an enemy that cannot be destroyed for fear of extinction, Deuce must fight for the future of his people and to convince Eden the passion between them is more than illusion. She is his Chosen mate, and nothing, not her fears, the Coalition, nor death itself will take her away from him.

REVIEW: Conception is the story of two lovers destined to be together despite seemingly insurmountable odds.

Eden Lavery and her newborn daughter have been held a prisoner by her grandfather (who is the leader of a fanatical group called the Coalition who are seeking to find the secret to immortality.) She has suffered through unspeakable experiments trying to find out more about the Chosen (a group of vampires) and how they are immortal. It seems like a lifetime ago when she fell in love with Duscan Knight the leader of the Chosen who has lived for over six centuries. She never thought when their relationship started that any of this was possible or even existed. Now she has to escape her prison like hell, and get her daughter to Duscan so that he can protect her and keep her out of the hands of her grandfather before he turns on her with his experiments next.

Duscan (Deuce) Knight believed his love and destined mate Eden had been killed a year ago in the confrontation between the Chosen, the Others and the Coalition. He never would have left her behind had he known that she had survived. Now thank the Maker she has returned to him (with another surprise - their daughter that he knew nothing of) and he is determined that the Coalition and no one else will ever come near them again, vowing vengeance on those who have tortured and harmed his mate. He is also determined to make her see that their love is meant to be and they are eternal mates.

Eden never forgot what it was like in Deuces arms. Their passion is as hot as ever but many things stand in their way. Even though she knows that he thought her dead the disappointment she felt at being left behind and that he didn't come for her still haunts her. And Eden is determined that no matter what happens to her that her grandfather and those that follow him will never get near her daughter ever again. But even as powerful as Duscan is, can he truly protect them from the far-reaching power of the Coalition? And can they overcome all that has come between them to make a new beginning?

I won’t tell you any more if you want to know the answers you will have to get the book to find them out! Sarah McCarty has created a very unique and different world of Vampires and shifters in this book. It is definitely not your regular vampire romance, though the Chosen have many of the traits of the vampires that most people identify with they have one Mate that is meant to share their lives… the other half of their soul and only that person can make them complete among other things that set them apart from other vamps.

I really loved many things about this book. It had a very good start and as with any Sarah McCarty book great writing and ultra hot love scenes galore. But while I did love the passion between Eden I felt that it fell a bit short of many of Sarah’s other books like the fabulous Promises series. It seemed much more focused on just the sex sometimes and the other parts of the story did lag behind some, if not for that I would have given this a much much higher rating because the her writing is excellent. (And yes I realize this was an erotic romance and therefore more sex is expected) I just wish more of the history of both the Chosen and their battle with the Coalition had been flushed out as well as that would have made it an ever better read. All in all though another great book from this author in my quest to read all of her books!
