Visit Crazy-For-Books to join up on the hop this week. The question of the week is:

"Since Thanksgiving is coming up next week, let's use this week's Hop to share what we are most thankful for and what our holiday traditions are!"

My answer:  I am thankful for the health of my family.  There are so many that have illnesses that effect their daily lives.  We are truly blessed with strong fortitudes of mind and body and are thankful. Are prayers to all those who have illnesses or have loved ones that are suffering.  Bless all caregivers and those they care for.

Werewolves ask their top man, Vincent Rand, better known as Rand, to investigate.  He is one hot werewolf on a mission.  He is determined to get the answers needed in solving the crimes.  The only thing he didn’t count on was finding the beautiful and alluring succubus, Lissa Monroe.

Lissa Monroe finds herself in the middle of an investigation that she has no desire to be a part of.  If she wants to save those she holds dear, she has no choice but to cooperate with the PEC.  She is torn when she is asked to betray the one man that has every  made her feel, in this lifetime.   She has never felt the way she does with Rand.  How will she ever be able to come through for the PEC?

Rand and Lissa find themselves in the middle of a political and shadow war.  Can they make it work, or will they just walk away from each other?  Will the L.A. deaths be solved? Who can we trust?  Could there be another player in the mix?

When Pleasure Rules

I gave this book 4/5


This book rocked!!! This book outshines the first book!  Hot characters, intense sex, emotional rollercoaster. J.K. Beck outdid herself.  I’m going right away to Book 3, When Wicked Craves.

Favorite Quote: "You weren't in any danger," he said. "And if I was?" He didn't falter, but met her eyes, and when he spoke, she heard the truth in his words. "They'd all be dead.” (Rand)

Eternal Hunger is the first book in the Mark of the Vampire series.


Alexander Roman has escaped a childhood of pain and suffering to have the life he now enjoys with his brothers.  No longer can the Order control their lives.
That’s all about to change when his life is saved by the beautiful Dr. Sara Donohue.  Sara is a dedicated doctor who has sworn to save the lives of her patients, especially that of her brother’s.  When a deranged ex patient tries to harm her, Alexander steps in to protect her.  Although she is human, and not a vampire, Alexander can not stop himself from wanting her.
The Order is now playing with Alexander and his brother’s lives.  They hold all the cards and Alexander will protect his brothers at all cost.  The games the Order plays are dangerous and place Sara in danger as well. 
Alexander will no longer be able to ignore his feelings for Sara.  Sara will live the life she has always been denied in the arms of Alexander.
Great book.  First paranormal book I’ve read from Laura Wright.  Great characters and a creative paranormal world in her first book in the series.  Can’t wait for the second book in the series, “Eternal Kiss” for sale in April of 2011.
