Blood of Anteros (The Vampire Agápe #1) by Georgia Cates

Goodreads Description: 

"I was tantalized by the mystery of her. The leech inside me came out to find prey, but found none in this enigmatic girl. The close proximity of her essence didn’t entice the monster within, so what did that make her? I had more questions than answers, but one thing was unmistakable; although she released me from her embrace, her hold on me remained."

Cruel circumstances turned Curry Brennan into the wretched monster he hates and refuses to accept, but when an expected turn of events releases him from the bond of his obsessive maker, he returns to the home he knew 161 years earlier and finds the return of happiness and joy in something he didn’t know existed. Puzzled by his growing attraction to Chansey Leclaire, a human, he is unable to resist the captivating relationship that threatens to reveal his existence as a vampire. He eventually discovers the reason he was destined to find what he didn’t know he searched for and is faced with the cruel realization that the living and the immortal undead will always be separated by one thing. Eternity.

Mary's Review:

I hadthis book on my to-read list since I read Georgia Cate's Going Under.  I thought the book sounded interesting and it was not going to be the typical vampire meets human girl story.

Curry Brennan was held captive by his maker, Marsala, for over 130 years.  Then on the night of the Eclipse he was ready to meet the "True Death" but instead was released through a strange event (you have to read it to believe it).  During his escape he was helped by another vampire, Solomon. who became Curry's "Mentor".

After numerous years, Curry decided to return to his home that he left over 160 years ago.  It is now occupied by an older husband and wife and their granddaughter, Chansey.  Right off the bat, Chansey and Curry have a connection.  They both cannot deny it, either.  After Solomon discovers that Curry and Chansey are becoming so close they call for Sebastian (a very old and wise vampire) to help with this situation.

When Sebastian, Solomon, and Curry figure out the issue Curry has to decide what to do.  He has to think about Chansey's safety and the one thing he does not want to do is turn her into a vampire.  But, what does she want? And who is still lurking in the shadows?

This is just book 1 and I cannot wait to read book 2 - Blood of Jewel.
