Scions: Resurrection, by Patrice Michelle
First in the “Scions” trilogy put out by Silhouette Nocturne, it is a novel take on vampires and werewolves. The second installment, Scions: Insurrection, comes out in May, and the third, Scions: Revelation, in the Fall.

Back cover blurb:

Everyone believed vampires were extinct. Everyone was wrong.
When Ariel Swanson wrote a novel about vampires, she hoped it would exorcise fear of the creatures that had, not so long ago, terrorized the human population.
Instead, it brought her to their attention.
And to the attention of Jachin Black—a man banished from the Sanguinas, a vampire pack, and forced to hunt among the despised humans. For he clung to the prophecy given years ago, of a better way for his kind to live—a prophecy Ariel unknowingly used as the basis of her novel.
Ariel hates and fears vampires. Jachin despises humanity. But the prophecy—and passion—binds them in ways they could never have imagined. Ways that may heal the past, and change the future.
Scions: A prophecy reveals hidden secrets and holds the key to fulfilling their ultimate desires.

Can’t tell you how glad I am to be proven wrong. (more…)
