BlurbA deadly, alluring stranger. The consequences of loving a doomed immortal. The steamy hot, heart-wrenchingly emotional, edge-of-your-seat first Vesper novella Gilded Destiny is paranormal romance like you've never seen it before.
A woman's memory returns when she falls in love with the monster who took it from her.
Calli tattoos her skin to fill the holes in her memory, thanks to an accident that left her mind damaged and empty. But a nasty encounter with a fired employee leaves her in the arms of her unlikely savior: Nycholas, a predatory, serpentine Vesper on the run from his brutal master.

Nycholas’ clandestine world holds the secrets to mankind’s origin and survival… but he only wants one thing before his time is up: a few colorful nights with Calli, the fragile, tattooed, human woman he pursued and saved.
The more Calli learns about Nycholas, the more her own darkened memories return to her. Despite her haunted past, she loses herself to passion and desire with her immortal captor.
Now, Calli must overcome the demons of her past, or allow Nycholas to kiss her memories away and spare her the trauma of loving a doomed immortal. But each choice comes with dire consequences – some that endanger not only herself, but her family as well.

Shonna's review:  With part of her memory gone after the accident, Calli is trying to go on but still wishes she could put the missing pieces back together. Never expecting to unravel the past, she finds more than the answers when he enters her life, but at what price?
Nycholas is sensual, dangerous, and a Vesper, half snake, half man. With humans being their food source, he shields his poisonous fangs from the woman he loves and gives her everything he has, including more answers than she ever thought possible.
This unique story is a complete contrast to any other read I have ever encountered. And for a novella, it is packed with a lot happening. It has an intriguing love story between a woman and an unusual and different type of immortal creature . It is gutsy and bold to write something that is way off the norm. Full of darkness, it also expresses passion, light, courageous acts of love. The ending will throw you for a loop and leave you with your heart aching.
My Rating: 3
