He was the player. The most popular guy in highschool. In other words, the stereotypical heartbreaker that every girl died for.

She was one of the nerds. The outcast teased and shunned by the popular kids in school. In other words, him and his crew.

He always wanted her, she just never knew it . . .

In order to maintain his popularity, he buried those feelings deep, deep down in the pit of his miserable little soul.

That is, until one night he lost control.

They both did.

Unfortunately, they weren’t the only ones that knew it. What his friends ended up doing with the knowledge would scar her for the next seven years of her life.

And leave him wrecked, dealing with years of agony because he’d lost her.

Highschool graduation came and went, and they never saw each other again.

Now, seven years later, Andrew’s stepped in and taken his father’s place as CEO of his family’s company, Drevlow Systems, Inc.

Along with the new position comes a host of perks . . . and a brand new systems genius working as the head of his company’s IT department.

An IT genius that just happens to be the one woman he never forgot.

She hasn’t forgotten him or his reputation either and she wants nothing to do with him.

He’s determined to have her—she’s determined to see him burn in hell before that happens.

What ensues takes the term War of the Sexes to a whole new level.

{Episode #1}
Andrew is forced to face his past in a way he’d never expected.

Or prepared for.

Seven years.

That’s how long he waited to find Lexi again. Seven years worth of memories. Fantasies that tormented his life, making it impossible for him to move on.

Seven years worth of guilt for what he’d inadvertently allowed to happen.

He had it all planned out, every step of the epic-groveling he knew he’d have to do.

His plan was absolutely perfect.

Genius, actually.

Then he walked into his company’s IT department and seen the same big, blue-gray eyes that had haunted him for years . . .

Glaring at him from behind familiar, black-framed glasses.

And Andrew knew, right then, without a doubt . . .

That his plan wasn’t worth sh*t.

N. Isabelle Blanco was born in Queens, NY (USA). At the age of three, due to an odd fascination with studying her mother’s handwriting, she began to read and write. By the time she’d reached kindergarten, she had an extensive vocabulary and her obsession with words began to bleed into every aspect of her life.
 An avid reader in her teens, her fascination with Japanese anime eventually led her to the universe of fan fiction, which became her on-again, off-again hobby for the next ten years. During that time she amassed a following of fans that, by her own admission, she would never be able to live without. It was those fans who encouraged her to step beyond the fan fiction realm and try her talent in the publishing world.
N. Isabelle Blanco spends her days working as an author, web programmer, marketer, and graphic designer. That is when she isn’t handling her “spawn”, as she calls her son, and brainstorming with him about his future career as a comic book illustrator.

"I would no longer be a mortal servant, a pet kept for sick entertainment. I had been chosen for initiation, to become one of the immortals…A vampire.

My transition continued on far longer than any other, filling my body with a pain that was beyond the natural senses. After four days of writhing in the burning change I blacked out, and what woke in my place was not a vampire. It was in a word…Chaos."

No longer an average mortal and far from a vampire, Serenity is an unnatural force that rivals anything found in the planes of the Underworld. An advantage that her master uses in his quest to conquer the mortal world, while luring her into his bed with seductive promises. A flawless venture until they reach the city of Tentusa.

Now three centuries of loyalty between master and servant are shaken by a deep connection to land they wish to conquer. Serenity's disobedience grows stronger with each passing hour, fueling her master's impatient need to tame the wild creature that lives within her.

Lightening steals the coming darkness, thunder echoes against the rolling hills as the war inside Serenity starts to stir. Which is stronger… the person, the desire, or the creature?


Vondorian’s hand grasped the back of my neck and forced my face toward his, “ I told you to open that beautiful mouth of yours.”
        My focus gone, fleeting with his suggestive motion. I wanted to pull away but I didn’t get the chance. Master forced my lips against his hungry tongue, thrusting it into my mouth lapping up every bit of blood that lingered. I should have jumped off him, fled, but I couldn’t bring myself to move. I had to prove that my will was stronger than his seduction. A mistake. My body began to shake from his hungry assault. I tried to steady myself, to stifle the tremble in my muscles but I couldn’t.
        You have to stop this!
        I jumped to my feet when the reality of what was happening hit me. I was losing control, my strength was slipping with each tease of his skilled tongue. Master grabbed for me as I stood, I jerked out of his reach, and turned away to hide my crumbling resolve. “That’s enough.”
        “I say when its enough.”
        “You gave me your word not to proceed without my consent.” I reminded him flexing my fingers to still their rebellious quaking. If there was one thing that Vondorian was known for, aside from his brutality,  it was the honor of his sworn word. While the other lords dealt in false promises and meaningless oaths, Master kept his word at all costs. It was rare for him to pledge his word, but he had done so to me twice in my service to him.
        Silence filled the room after my blatant reminder, but I could feel his gaze burning into me. Those crimson eyes fixed on my figure no doubt, his jaw clenched with a fang tugging at his lower lip, an agitated habit of his.
        This conversation was over and I dared to take a step forward only be drawn back against his hard chest. His hands clasped around my arms with all the rage that was spilling over from our mental connection.
        “And you gave your word to follow me without question. You swore me your loyalty.” He hissed in my ear as his grip grew tighter. “Stray from my orders again and I may forget my manners.” ~Serenity~


Oh I loved this, I REALLY loved this. Immortal Tempest is a very visual book, the descriptions are very fluid and enchanting. Sheats creates a very vivid world that Serenity lives in. Its majestic, dark, alluring, dangerous and tempting in all the worst ways.

Serenity is vampire, originally a mortal of a very legendary warrior clan of people called Opsona she is very different from the Vamdari vampires. A force to reckon with despite her Master, Vondorian's will to tame and own her. Serenity is conflicted between the dark force that she harbors inside her soul and the mortal body and mind that she once was, a mind full of guilt and shame at how she has become so easily controlled by Vondorian.

Vondorian concocts a plan to take over the Kingdom of Tenusta, Serenity's own homeland by tainting the walls within with his treachery and persuasion. Throughout the ordeal and carrying out of this plan. Serenity is in constant battle with her demon and her desire to give in and allow herself to be completely consumed by her Master. As Vondorian's lethal conquest continues Serenity will have face her biggest battle. The one for her soul.

This book is oh so good, it is absolutely fascinating in its delivery. I love the inner battle between Serenity and the creature that is a part of her. The duality and conflict is so intriguing, you feel her struggle and her ache to keep her will intact. But there is also something so delicious about giving in to the dark and that desire is there as well. Vondorian in all his devilish ways is devastatingly seductive and enticing. At some points in the book, I was literally falling into his spell just like the character. I found myself wanting Serenity to give in and at other times I wanted her to fight. I wanted her to show him how strong she was and that he could not control her. Vondorian is also ridiculously scary in a very sexy way, he is literally charming but deadly and he will capture you in his web of seduction and control just like he has with Serenity.

Serenity, herself is also quite a character. She is strong, tormented and determined. Her bravery and boldness with Vondorian is admirable. But there is something simmering within Serenity and when it unleashes it is one hell of a tumultuous force. The book hints to Serenity being more than what we know of her and what she may know of herself and I can't wait to see what the series will have in store for us to discover.

By the end of this book I was itching for more. This is a great start
to this series and the book will have you entirely bewitched.
