Nights Embrace by Brandy L. Rivers

Nights Embrace
It all started with a song.

Roxana Nights was late to another gig, thanks to her first love, and drummer. It’s been years since she left Jordan, but he won’t let her go. Then she hears a voice that pulls her under a spell and changes her whole world.

Trevor Malone just moved to Seattle with his band. Music is his only passion, until he lays eyes on Roxana. He’s never felt anything as strong as the pull to her. Now he needs to find a way to introduce her to his world.

There’s only one problem. A rival clan won’t rest until they’ve taken Trevor’s down. Unwilling to let old grudges die, they target Roxy. Trevor will do anything to keep her safe.

Roxy learns that the world she writes is closer to reality than she ever imagined, and that not all monsters are evil, though some are ruthless.

Will love stay strong when the past comes out? Can they survive the centuries old vendetta?

Overall Rating:   4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

From the moment Roxy heard Trevor sing she was caught.  Trevor could not believe the remarkable woman that just walked in where he was performing.  When he heard her sing he knew she was his mate.

“They warned me Roxana Nights was enchanting.” His eyes traveled down her body and back up so damn slowly she had to wonder what he was thinking.  “I never imagined they were underestimating your beauty.” 

Roxy had one problem her ex-boyfriend is still a part of her band and he refuses to let her go.  His constant getting into trouble with women, drugs and alcohol had been the thing that finally broke the relationship.  Roxy was not looking for another relationship until she looked into Trevor’s eyes. 

“Don’t apologize.  I’m sorry for the intrusion but yes, I’m Trevor Malone.” His accent colored his words, but it was faded, as if he ha been in the States for years. He had a strong jaw, full mouth, and sharp cheekbones.  Roxy lost herself in his gaze.

Trevor follows Roxy’s scent to a coffee shop the morning after their performances and asks her to spend the day with him.  She agrees to be his tour guide for the day and to show him all the sites in Seattle. They spend the day getting to know each other and avoiding everyone else.  The question that Roxy keeps asking herself is should I take a chance with Trevor?

Stupid Rox.  He could be the world’s best actor, playing you like a fool.  He has all the charisma in the world and could easily have any woman he wants.  So what the hell makes you think he wants anything more than a little naked fun time?

Trevor knows that there is so many things that he needs to share with Roxy but he also realizes that he must be patient.  She is not at the point where she would be able to understand.  Her ex will not leave her alone and keeps causing problems and wanting Roxy to make it right.  All Trevor wants to do is protect, love and wrap her up in his arms.

“Jordan wasn’t man enough to see his mistakes or to make amends.” “I don’t want him to make them right.  I don’t want an apology.  I want him to let me go.  I guess that require me walking away for good.” She turned away.  “I won’t blame you if you turn around and leave.  I have so much …to deal with, an you don’t need it”

Our heroine does not know that she is endowed with strong magic from both of her parents and that her new love is a werewolf. Danger is nipping at both of their heels.  A very powerful enemy is after Trevor and also wants Roxy.  Roxy and Trevor must work together to defeat the evil that wants to claim them and their families.

“I’m scared,” she whimpered.  “Don’t be. I’m right here."
