“Let me obliterate each and every last beast that’s holding that beautiful mind captive, Giselle.”
It’s no secret Detective Mike Thatcher wasn’t a fan of the blood drinkers. They stole his life, his woman, his future when they kidnapped his college sweetheart. So of course Fate paired him with the one thing he’d spent the past eleven years hating…a vampire. But Giselle isn’t just any vampire. She’s seduction, sin, strength and fragility all wrapped into one ice-cold package.
“That could take a lot of time. I have a lot of demons.”
Giselle has reasons for her sandpaper exterior, but they’re hers and hers alone. Then along came the one male she never wanted. Her Fated. Mike changed her in ways she didn’t like. He made her soft. He made her care. The gorgeous asshole made her feel, goddammit. And he’s just made it clear the running is over. Letting love in would prove to be the biggest challenge she’d ever faced.
But as Mike lets the past go, can Giselle do the same? Can she bare her soul? Show her shame? Just as Giselle stops fighting the inevitable, her entire world doesn’t only shift on its axis…it falls the fuck off.
NOTE: THIS IS NOT A STANDALONE. This is a novella in the Regent Vampire Lords series that picks up on Mike and Giselle’s relationship toward the end of Reawakening. To understand their back story, you MUST read the series in order, starting with Surrendering.
**Contains graphic sexual content and foul language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+
Reading Evading, I was lost in a tumultuous sea of emotion and I wasn’t sure I wouldn’t drown. This is my absolute favorite installment of Kreig’s Vamp series.
Now, I love Mike. I always have. Who wouldn’t love a smart, devoted, strong, fierce man? This chick does, for sure. So I was excited to get his story. I mean, shit, the man deserved a HEA. But in Evading Mike became more than a BBF to me. He was a fucking HERO. Not Hero, HERO. ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. He saved himself, he saved Giselle, he brought closure to those desperate for it. But back to the saving Giselle thing… omigosh I can’t even tell you! I mean, I really can’t because spoilers, duh! but his passionate, honest attempt to win Giselle over was heart-wrenching. He laid it all out there, no holding back, no question in his mind, and she well, she was about as receptive as you would expect her to be. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.
But, BUT her story, the reason behind her reaction killed me a little bit. Okay, more than a little bit. Picture this:
The dear, sweet blogger was glued to the blue glow of her kindle page after page, completely engrossed in the story before her. The blogger’s husband is getting ready for bed, unaware that on the other side of the door, his poor wife was choking on unshed tears. She doesn’t want to alarm him, but each word pierces her soul and etches Mike and Giselle’s journey on her heart. The heart that is breaking into a million pieces.
See that? That’s what happened.
Giselle is one hell of a female (I can’t really say woman, being a vampire). She’s strong, fierce, passionate, badass, and determined. But she’s also fragile, unsure of herself, and afraid. I love her! I. Love. Her. The struggle within her is one that many of us wrestle with. Betrayal from people that are supposed to protect and love us is one of the more difficult things to accept, face, and work through. But Giselle does it. Well, Mike drags her through it, because he is unwilling to lose her to the demons of her past, but Giselle does the hard work.
Read this. Just fucking read it. After you read the first three, of course.

I’m just a regular ol’ Midwest girl who likes Game of Thrones and am obsessed with Modern Family and The Goldbergs. I run, I eat, I run, I eat. It’s a vicious cycle. I love carbs, but there’s love-hate relationship with my ass and thighs. Mostly hate. I like a good cocktail (oh hell…who am I kidding? I love any cocktail). I’m a huge creature of habit, but I’ll tell you I’m flexible. I read every single day and if I don’t get a chance…watch the hell out, I’m a raving bitch. My iPad and me: BFFs. I’m direct and I make no apologies for it. I swear too much. I love alternative music and in my next life I want to be a bad-ass female rocker. I hate, hate, hate spiders, telemarketers, liver, acne, winter and loose hairs that fall down my shirt (don’t ask, it’s a thing).
