Today I’m proud to introduce my fellow Rebel and Friend, Author Jane Wakely.
A Vampire’s Light by Jane Wakely
Lori has been gracious enough to let me come back and talk about my latest release, A VAMPIRE’S LIGHT! A VAMPIRE’S LIGHT is book three in my Reluctant Mates Series (paranormal/fantasy romance), but each book can be read as a stand-alone!
Here’s the blurb:
Camilla Everwood is a down on her luck fairy, convinced she’ll never find love. Her short, petite, boyish frame keeps the men far away and she’s struggling to find enough clients to get her landscaping business off the ground. When she receives a summons from the Council, she believes her professional luck has changed—until she finds out she’s being forced to mate with a vampire.
Grayson Lockhart is a vampire determined to live out his life alone. He revealed his true-self once, a long time ago, and never wants to go through the pain of rejection again. Unfortunately, his large, empty home, combined with his lonely heart, interferes with his happiness. When he receives a summons from the Council, and finds out they’ve forced him to mate with a fairy, he knows better than to hope for anything more than someone to share his living space.
In order to sustain the numbers of all mythical beings, the Council, the governing body of the Mythical Realm, intervened and found prosperous matches for several of their subjects. Rather than create an act of treason punishable by death, Camilla and Grayson agree to accept their fate, despite their obvious differences and schedules. They quickly fall into an easy, comfortable routine, but old insecurities and a dangerous enemy threaten to keep them apart forever.
Here’s an excerpt:
Camilla picked up the envelope and when she carefully broke the seal, the glowing stopped, indicating the letter had been opened by the correct recipient. She read the contents and looked at her mother.
“I don’t believe it. I’m being summoned. Do you know what this is about?”
“I have an idea, but I think they better explain it. I don’t want to say anything in case I’m wrong.”
She knew her mother well enough to know the woman wasn’t telling the whole truth, but Cam let it go. She couldn’t think of any possible reason the Council would want to see her, unless they wanted her to design something for the assembly hall. Maybe they wanted to add an indoor garden to the foyer, or hang herbs on the windowsills. If other beings found out she’d been the one to complete a job for the Council, her phone might start ringing.
Seeing the Council could be the break she’d been waiting for.
Excited over the possibilities, Cam finished her yogurt and fruit, said goodbye to her mother and went to her bedroom. She pulled out her portfolio, double-checked her bio and photos and did a couple sketches of the ideas that popped in her head after reading the missive.
Later that night, after hours of sketches and plans, she forced herself to sleep in preparation for the following day. Her meeting with the Council wasn’t until after dinner, but she wanted to be fully prepared and a good night’s rest was a must.
As she drifted off to sleep, all thoughts of Barry, his wedding, and her miserable life had vanished. Instead, she thought about her mother’s smile. Cam knew the woman had something to do with her new opportunity. The Council didn’t usually reach out to its subjects randomly, and her mother knew the members more intimately than most beings did.
She couldn’t wait to be able to afford to take her mom out and thank her properly.

***** Format:Kindle Edition
In this book we meet Camilla, she is a very down on her self and her life fairy. She thinks that men don’t want her because she has what she calls a boyish figure. Her landscaping business is not going how she would like either. Then she gets a summons from the Council and thinks that they may need her services with decorating the place. She soon learns that what they really want is to tell her it is time for her to find a mate, or take the mate they have found for her.
Grayson is a vampire that has had a bad reaction with a woman finding out his true nature, and he is determined to never do that to himself again. He lives alone, has a good job and finds his prey then leaves. When he gets the summons to go to the Council, his brother tells him that they have a mate for him and she is a fairy. Gray does not have high hopes for this mating, but he will listen to the council.
As we follow their lives we see a relationship start to form. When Camilla is put in a tough situation will Gray be able to save her and himself?
I never give spoilers, so you will have to read the book to find out what happens to this oddly paired couple!
Well done Jane!

*****My Thoughts – 5 out of 5 Unicorns – I loved it!!!
Received the ebook for an honest review
The cover is awesome and steamy, but I think Gray should be taller 🙂 You don’t realize the significance of the cover until you read the story 😉
I stumbled onto Jane Wakely as an author in one of my facebook groups early this year. I proceeded to buy all of the books she had out at the time, and I read them 🙂 I fall more in love with her stories each time though I think I love this series the best so far….though I know I’m going to love the Mount Brighton Cat series too because book 1 rocks.
This is a novella series, and it rocks. I love this world she has created with mythical beings and the Council. I sort of wish my HEA was this easy that someone could step in and pick my perfect mate, but I guess I will just keep on wishing…lol Jane makes it so easy to fall in love with her characters. Cam and Gray are both just awesome, but there were definitely some moments where I wanted to smack them both and say really because of the trouble the two of them caused each other with their silly thoughts. I loved the epilogue best, but you have to read to see what I mean. Jane’s stories are quick reads and give you your paranormal fix quick. It always has lots of action and drama to keep you entertained. She is definitely one of my favorite authors.
I highly recommend this series to my paranormal lovin’ friends because you will love this series as much as I do.
