Immortal Flame (Eternal Mates #1)
by J.F. Holland
Sept 4th - Sept 11th
Heated Paranormal Romance. Spin off from The Bound Series.
What happens when your friend signs you up to a dating site? You end up with a date, one who’s a little more than you expected.
That’s what happens to Jill Henderson when her best friend Amanda Nolan signs her up with Eternal Mates, not understanding that it’s for immortals.
All Jill wants is a man with whom she has something in common… a faithful and not too good looking man… A man that isn’t too young or over the hill. What she gets is something a whole lot more and drop dead gorgeous to boot.
Leonard Smyth has been duped by Luc Beauregard, his once best friend. Now he’s got to date a woman he’s never met… not only that, but he must take her on five dates, and not sleep with her.
It should be easy, right? Wrong. Especially when the woman he’s now dating is not only a human, but also has no idea that he is in fact a vampire. What’s worse, his glamour is working too well and women are throwing themselves at him… well, apart from Jill.
The women he can handle, but Jill, now she’s an enigma. Leonard is shocked to find that Jill is a woman he would actually be happy to spend time with… and not just for a bang and bail. Now all he needs to do is keep his promise – and his hands to himself - or he forfeits the chance to heal the rift in his friendship with Luc.
Surely it’s an absolute doddle for a man who’s nearly five-hundred- years old? Well it would be if he wasn’t trying to prove to Jill that he did in fact find her more attractive than the ones he’d turned away.
Contains profanity, humour and adult sex scenes.
I still live in the small town in Manchester, UK, where I was born at home on January 10th 1968. I was raised and attended school here. Now a wife and mother, I live with my husband and 6 children, and a small menagerie of animals.
I've always loved the underdog, the fighter. But let's face it, we all want to believe in a happily ever after. As a huge fan of books (book nerd is the endearing term, my children use). I have an immense romance collection which also includes paranormal romance. If I'm not writing, I've got my head stuck in a good book.
You can't beat reading, watching the plot and characters come to life in your imagination. It's so much better than television. When I was younger, I tended to re-write books and fairy-tales where I wasn't completely happy with the ending. It confused the hell out of my children once they learned to read. None of the books matched the stories I'd read them growing up.
I had a varied career including Admin, Customer Service, and Teaching unemployed adults IT and customer service skills. Well, until I became ill a few years ago. I'm now at home full time, classed as disabled (neuro fog can make life, and writing fun sometimes). So instead of feeling sorry for myself I decided to do something I'd always wanted to do and loved with my life. I began to write my own stories (as I'd done as a child) and as well as keeping my mind active it's fun too. I'm now ready to share them and happy to receive feedback about my books (stories).
