Izzy and Tamara are settling in together, their love passionate as always. But as things usually are with the Hightowers, nothing is guaranteed or simple. When Tamara’s sister Kaley does something unforgivable, it leaves Tamara with a precarious decision to make – one that will change Izzy, and their lives together, forever.

Now Izzy’s dealing with much more than a vampire girlfriend, and her new life is threatening everything – from the fragile status of their relationship, to Izzy’s very sanity. They have to find a solution and fast, or the fallout will be disastrous.

Cheating Death is book two in the Hightower series and a direct sequel to For the Love of Blood. This one had me from the get-go and the action rarely let up. The characters (not just Izzy and Tamara) were very well-written and fleshed out, and the love scenes were incredibly hot.

The plot revolves around Izzy’s new… life and, as such, you’re left holding on for dear life as she spirals out of control. There were several times when I wondered how in the world she’d ever get out of the trouble she managed to find herself in, but that was part of the appeal. Cheating Death has a lot of depth and I greatly enjoyed this installment. Given how it ended, I’m eagerly looking forward to the next book.

Hi Dayana! It's nice to meet you too.

I write very explicit F/F erotica and right now I'm working on the Hightower Series. It's about a half-witch who falls in love with a master vampire and the obsticles that Izzy goes though loving Tamara.

It goes to prove that relationships are difficult, even for vampires.

I hope to see you around soon. :smilingsun:
