Book Description:

"Forever." That’s the response Ben Gongliewski receives, when he asks Miranda Dandridge how long she’s been a vampire. He doesn’t expect the word "forever" in her reply, but then again, Ben never imagined meeting vampires, let alone demons and werewolves, during his time as a Resistance worker in World War II Poland. Far from being horrified, Ben discovers that Miranda and her friends have very useful … talents … especially when it comes to saving children from concentration camps. After all, in these desperate times, while the line between good and evil is clear, the one between heroes and monsters is very, very blurred.

The last thing Miranda wants at this point in her immortal life is a human lover, but as she and Ben perform rescue after daring rescue, she can’t help but be drawn to his passion to save his fellow Jews. As the War draws to a close and Miranda must chose her love for Ben or her duty to her race, Ben is blindsided by a betrayal that no one sees coming. This leads to a danger in which all hell is about to break loose … literally…

My Thoughts so Far:

I have started reading the first several chapters of Release and think that Nicole’s writing style is concise, intelligent, and very enjoyable. The book is also set during WWII giving it an interesting historical tone. It apparently includes some romance. Fun stuff!

Author’s Personal Blurb:

Picture 005

I used to work as a lawyer, but now I only write about such things as bloodsuckers and deals with the devil (sorry! couldn't resist a lawyer joke there!). Have lived in such varied places as Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Washington, D.C. and even Monaco. Currently, I'm enjoying writing and raising my family in Texas.

You can connect with Nicole in several places – on Goodreads or on her blog.

You blog. You Book Face. And now you tweet. I have no idea how you do all that and eat, sleep, read, and supervise John in cooking, cleaning house, doing laundry, etc.

This sounds fascinating, but I must admit that I'm not really into the vampire mania!

I guess that makes me unfashionable!

Laurel -
You know I have not read any Anne Rice and I am just reading Dracula for the first time. So I get what your saying. The only vampire stuff I have read is the Twilight series though. And only because it was a recommendation from my best friend.

I think that what drew me to this particular story its historical setting during WWII.

And what I say is the hell with fashion... its what you enjoy. :)
