New Release - Zane: The Decrees (Flames of Vampire
Passion Book 2) by Elaine Barris
THIS FIRE CANNOT BE QUENCHED
Considering how quickly Zane and I met and then wed, a lot of people thought our relationship wouldn’t last a month much less the five years we’ve been married. We’ve proved them all wrong. We’re still deeply in love with an intimate connection neither of us would ever let go.
Zane has been ordered to officiate The Decrees, an event that happens once every ten years. He will be holding court over vampires who have committed various wrongs, and judging them. I thought vampires had no laws, but learned there is a movement by some elders to create a way for vampires to stop killing each other over a disagreement
I’m not so sure if that’s an accurate description since the past events had been violent, and murderous things.
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t scared, but I’m determined to stay with Zane and support him through this.
Zane, confident and cocky as ever, seemed to be taking it all in stride.
He told me what he would do if his judgement was challenged by any of the attendees.
“I would kill them the moment they opened their mouth against my ruling. No discussion. No mercy.” His voice had been incredibly low, and chills ran over my skin. He was deadly serious, and I knew he’d meant it, without a doubt. “You only know me as your lover. You’ve never seen how lethal I can be.”
Not knowing what to say, I didn’t utter a word. What he was telling me was the truth, and I prayed I would not have to behold his wrath. Something inside me, though, told me I would.
It was as if The Decrees was surging forward, with its only desire being to take us down and render us apart, and the only thing to stop its homicidal intent was the immovable wall that was Zane.
And, I got a call that my mother needs to move in with us for a while due to an injury. The Decrees plus my mother? I don’t know if we’ll survive it all.
All I wanted to do is hang out with London, and have fun with her. Take her out on the town, like to Draco’s midnight magic show. Her face was filled with joy, and she laughed at the travesty the magician subjected us all to before volunteering to be his assistant for the night.
At the beginning of our relationship, she never would have considered doing anything like that, but she’d given herself permission to be who she was, and I couldn’t be happier.
Interrupting our lives, The Decrees has risen up, like an omen of destruction around us. Although I knew I could handle whatever it threw my way, horrible visions of London’s death at the hands of vampires I had angered by my judgement plagued me. I tried to stop them from leaking out and contaminating her, but sometimes I couldn’t.
Everyone else saw me as a leader, a force not to be crossed, without suffering the consequences. But London… she saw who I was. She knew and loved the real me. I didn’t have to worry about showing my vulnerabilities to her.
There was only one weakness I had, her. London was everything to me. My entire world. My greatest fear was losing her.
That would happen over my dead body.

More Zane baby!!!
London and Zane have been together a couple of years now, they're blissfully happy and still very passionate about one another - if she was human, she would be sore, as would he lol but they are vampires so they don't have to worry about such nuances.
When life is going swimmingly let's face it you expect something to go wrong. It turns out Zane has to be judge and jury over the vampires this year, it's like his jury service but is dangerous and bloody at times.......worse than that it appears the mother in law is making an appearance!
Zane comes across a tad more domineering in this book, he loves control in the bedroom but outside he treats London as an equal, but he is concerned for her welfare in this book and tries to keep her safe.
London really retreats at one point, almost to her pre-vamp self, all thanks to her unkind mother - it turns out to be a good thing in the end as she finds good use for her pent up feelings. Zane is very patient and understanding to a point, but he has no love or respect for the mother in law from hell. He won't be stopped from showing his wife affection in his home.....
I was delighted when an old friend shows up :)
The trials are eventful, bloody and surprising and show how much London grows in this book.
I will say this is erotic vampire romance, there is lots of sex in the first part of the book, I was thinking not more sex - then I started thinking oh my am I getting old..... but then there was a break and I missed their intimacy, phew crisis averted!
Sexy, hot and fun Zane and London part 2 is not to be missed.
