Exciting 4 Star Review for SECOND NATURE!

I stumbled across this wonderful Amazon review for Second Nature, my new paranormal romance/urban fantasy book and the first book in the Blood at First Sight Series! 🙂

4.0 out of 5 stars Can Opposites Attract?, January 23, 2015

The Kindle Book Review
This review is from: Second Nature (Blood At First Sight Book 1) (Kindle Edition)

 

Marie Lavender’s first venture into the paranormal is a success.

Alec and Desiree are in love. The complicating factor is that he is a vampire and she is human. Alec exists on human blood, other food makes him ill, he must avoid sunlight, and he will live forever. Desiree is human. She loves wine and food, she sleeps at night, and she is mortal.
Can a human love a vampire?

I suppose all who have seen Twilight feel they know the answer to this question, but Lavender raises it anew in Second Nature. Can two very different creatures find happiness? Or is their relationship doomed to exist solely on a physical level.

On one level, this a straight romance, and, as a romance, it succeeds. It is fast moving, interesting, and very romantic. The reader comes to like the characters and roots for them to work things out so that they can be together. The fact that one of characters is a vampire, simply introduces new complications to the developing relationship

On another level, the book explores the nature of relationships. Can opposites attract? Can two very different people (or creatures) be happy together, or is eHarmony on the right track, claiming that we are most happy with those who are similar to us? Seldom do we find a romance that deals with weightier issues, but Lavender does this, and she does it in a light-hearted, unobtrusive manner.
A racy story and food for thought. Quite a combination.

When we've lost closeness to ourselves so far that we can no longer adequately explain or act after our physical or mental state and/or our environment, when there is a dissonance between who we are and who we want to be - by detecting and eliminating harmful stress and tension HeilÜben is a way to pull ourselves up by your own bootstraps – also in prevention through a healthy posture, harmonic movement and relaxation in training and everyday life.
