The first in the new Forsaken Series from Beachwalk Press, Forsaken Heart is one of those books you'll want to pay close attention to as there is a lot going on throughout this book.

The series, which will be written by two authors, Elise Whyles and Ciara Lake, features a whole host of paranormals including vampires, Gods, dragons and even a couple of demons.

In this first book, written by Elise Whyles, readers are introduced to the world in ancient times when Rome is at war and the Gods have just come out of favor with humans. Vampires live in their own realm and generally see humans as nothing more than food.

Vampire Gawain, guard to the King of Vampires, is sent to find a young girl and bring her back to the king. When he meets two sisters he is sure at first which is the one the king is looking for, but as his choice becomes clear he decides that he can't leave the sister behind because she is his mate.

Bede has one goal in life and that is to protect her younger sister Una. When the sisters are first sold by their father, and then rescued/kidnapped by a vampire Bede knows she has to do everything in her power to keep Una safe. Unfortunately there is a Goddess who has plans of her own for Bede's sister and another Goddess who has plans for both Gawain and Bede.

Can the two make it to the safety of the vampire world and once there will Bede be any safer in Gawain's world?

This book isn't for the faint of heart. There is plenty of gore and blood to go around throughout the page of this story, as there tends to be in many vampire books. The book, however, tells a great story with good descriptive narrative and dialog. Those who like vampire books and looking for a more unique story he's one you might want to sink your teeth into. (okay bad pun.)

Description:
Punished for sins not her own, can a mortal claim her vampire mate?

The world of immortals must unite to save both themselves and the mortals they co-exist with from an ancient evil.

For Bede MacTaggert this means trusting in the warrior sent for her sister—a man of mystery, of power, and one who could easily sweep her into a world she's destined to be part of.

An imperial guard to the king of vampires, Gawain has always tuned out the needs of the flesh. Dedicating himself to the service of the royals, he's lived on the fringes of his people for centuries. Now he's forced from the shadows and into the arms of a woman who will awaken his heart and body to a passion unequaled.

Content Warning: sexy alpha vampire, explicit sex, violence.
