4th novel (5th book) of the COLONY series by author Regina Morris.
Each book in the suspenseful and sensual paranormal romance series is stand-alone and can be read in any order. Each book is a complete story.
A covert team of sexy vampires protects the President of the United States.
After faking his death from an assassination attempt on the President, and retiring his first and only alias with the Colony, Daniel Brighton discovers the mandatory sabbatical to be less than exciting. He chooses to do a favor and act as a security guard for a fading pop-singer, Lori Austin, whose career is winding down. He travels across Europe with her and discovers her past to be one of deception and intrigue with a history leading directly back to the Colony itself.Lori Austin is struggling to keep her career alive, and is willing to do what is necessary to save it. From bad press and scandalous stories, she travels across Europe on a relief tour to revitalize her career but doesn’t realize she is traveling with a vampire. Discovering a hidden family secret, she realizes that the one man who can save her is the handsome security guard she fought so hard not to hire.
Regina Morris loves paranormal romances featuring vampires, but her personal taste is suspenseful and lighthearted – not horrific and gory.She writes the COLONY series that features a covert group of sexy vampires who protect the President of the United States. Her fifth novel, due out later this year, came in first place in the Houston Writers' Guild's Fall manuscript contest. The White House, the President, and Washington D.C. are merely backdrops to support her romance series (the COLONY). They offer some suspense, but her books are romances and not political thrillers. She has lived in many different parts of the world, and grew up on military bases. Her father was career military and CIA; his father worked with the Secret Service. She graduated high school in Germany and attended the University of Texas at Austin, where she received a degree in Computer Science with a minor in math. Her specialty is social media and she loves connecting with people. Besides writing, she has past work experience as a software engineer (current job), public speaker, sales representative (#1 National Sales Rep for an online company years ago), and she is an amateur portrait and sports photographer.
Another amazing addition to this series and if you haven't yet I highly recommend reading this series from the start!
Daniel, our old man vampire who has been living his first life is about to face some changes after saving the president comes at the price of his first life coming to an end. Now he has to start over as a younger man and he is forced to take some time off. What he does instead is a favor for a friend as a bodyguard, but meeting the feisty and confusing Lori could change things even more for him than he ever thought.
Lori has it rough. Her career has been stagnant, but a change for a tour just might put things right for her. A bodyguard wasn't expected but meeting Daniel changes everything for her. She is sassy and shy at the same time and while she keeps things close to the vest she knows when she can trust someone.
Daniel is a sweetie and we see more of his story now as well as why he plays things close to the vest. He protects those he cares for with everything he's got and would do anything for them.
These two have an easy yet rough start and that is their theme throughout. I loved seeing how Daniel worked through problems and how Lori learned to trust in him. The story was interesting and kept me glued to the pages and I literally read it in one sitting not able whatsoever to put the book down!
