Double Reviews for Second Nature!

Yay! Two new reviews for Second Nature!

I Love Romance Blog

Great news! I just found two new awesome book reviews for Second Nature, my latest paranormal romance/urban fantasy release!  Yay! Here is one from Crystal’s Many Reviewers site:

I’ll go ahead and admit it. Ever since Twilight, I’ve been a sucker for the forbidden human/vampire romance. That’s what attracted me to this book, and I was not disappointed.

Desiree has lost in love big time. She found her husband with another woman and now has supported her own sister in getting married and expecting a baby. She’s happy for the people in her life who deserve and get love, but finds herself wishing it could be for her. Alec is a vampire. He’s old, and has a system for getting his needs met. But when Desiree comes into the picture, she turns his world upside down. Can they make this unconventional love and passion work? Or is it doomed…

Candice‘s review

Read in January, 2015


I received this book as an ARC copy.

When Marie Lavender said that this was not your ordinary vampire story she was not playing. This book took me through every emotion I own. Before I could finish this book I was calling and texting my friends to recommend this book. From the awesome attention to detail to the dips and turns I love this book. Officially, I am stalking all blogs and emails for the release of the next book. I am truly looking forward to the second book in this series.

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
By
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.

I received a copy of the book in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.

SecondNature-final cover

What inspired you to write your book?

My current release, Second Nature, was a long time coming. I worked on it off and on for years before I realized it would be a vampire story. I wrote Desiree’s character first and the rest sort of came out of that.

Do you have a specific writing style?

I believe I do. I have a certain way that I write; I am character-focused first and then I add in the other details. I am comfortable with that approach, and my fans appear to like it.

How did you come up with the title?

Good question. At first, it was untitled and then it had…
