Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway ~ Passion After Dark by JA Melville

Title: Passion After Dark
Author: J.A Melville
Genre: Erotica/Paranormal Romance.
Publication Date: November 30, 2013


When Dominick Cavallo first saw Allegra Anderson, he knew instantly that she was the one for him. Unfortunately Allegra Anderson, best selling author of erotica and self confessed clutz, didn't know he even existed. That is about to change.

The night Allegra's house mate Cassie insists she come out clubbing with her is the night that fate intervenes.

From the moment Allegra sees Dominick, she's spellbound by his stunning good looks. His black hair, mesmerising blue eyes and the way he speaks to her has her captivated by him.

The night they meet Dominick disappears and Allegra thinks she will never see him again, but a week later he appears to her when she least expects it and she learns something about him that could change the way she feels about him forever. He is not human, he is vampire.

Dominick is different to the other vampires. He has no desire to live their lifestyle but they are a part of his life and they are not the kind that Allegra wishes to associate with but with the stunningly handsome, but terrifying Fabian as Dominick's sire and him also wanting Allegra for himself, can their relationship survive?

Will they end up driving them apart? Will Allegra be able to come to terms with what Dominick is and when something unexpected happens, that will change who she is forever, can their love survive?

With Allegra's discovery of her newly acquired 'abilities', will she survive those who are threatened by what she has become?

Dominick simply wants the woman he loves by his side for eternity but they have so much against them and with his sire determined to claim Allegra for himself, will it be enough to destroy their relationship?

This is book one of the Passion Series.

Book 2, Fabian's story is coming soon

This was an interesting take on vampires. Dominick is part of a group led by his sire Fabian. Fabian controls his group of vampires with an iron fist. They must submit to his wishes or lose their ability to walk in the sun.

Dominick wants to live more like a human. On his own and to love one woman. And he knows just the woman he wants. Allegra is an erotica writer who's in a bit of a slump romantically. She lives through her characters but even they seem to have deserted her. Her roommate encourages her to get out one night and she is instantly drawn to Dominick but he disappears on her in the middle of the club.

Dominick pursues Allegra, wanting to make her his. The ups and downs of their relationship is backdrop to some really hot sex scenes. And this is where JA Melville shines. Let's face it that's what we read erotica for right? There is just enough plot and character development to make this an interesting story.  I will not be reading the second book only because I am repulsed by Fabian and cannot see ever liking him.

3-1/2 Stars

From my teenage years, all I wanted to do was become a writer one day. Even now as an adult woman with a partner and three children who are not so little anymore, I've always lived with my head in the clouds, a dreamer, often amusing myself with my own imagination.

It might have taken me awhile to finally live my dream, but I did it, my first effort to try and join the many talented writers out there who have kept me entertained with their wonderful stories over the years.

I live in a sleepy country town in Tasmania, Australia with my partner and three children plus our 6 cats, dog, sheep and cattle.

I've had to overcome many emotional obstacles along the way to get to this point and attempting to self publish a book does tend to make a person feel like they've thrown themselves in at the deep end of the pool some what, but here's hoping some of you actually like what I write and save me from drowning in the deep end of the pool as I probably forgot to mention, I can't swim.
