It started out just
a normal, routine Friday for Aileen Slipsworthy. Eat dinner, catch a
movie, walk home and go to bed. She had just completed the movie, and
had started on her way home. Aileen sometimes got lonely because there
was not another house around hers. When she was about to let herself
into the house, there was a man with long black hair and glowing red
eyes! He grabs her, bites her neck that brings her almost to an
orgasmic release and then she passes out. When she awakens, he informs
her that his name is Mykil and she is his mate. Now they are now both
vampires. Aileen realizes her life will never be the same. She is a
vampire with telekinesis, telepathy and shape shifting among other new
founded skills. Does she want to live life this way? Does Mykil really
want her or is it just a Sumerian gene thing?
Mykil Votad never
meant to turn Aileen into a vampire He was hungry for blood that night
and her scent drew him toward her house. When he started to drink from
her neck, he got lost in the essence of her. He took to much blood.
The only option Mykil had was to give her a blood transfusion, then
blank her memory. Just before doing this, he got a strange vibe off
her, beyond normal attraction. It is then he discovers she had the
Sumerian gene and is his mate! He completes the transfusion, which
does the ultimate thing. It saves Aileen from death, and makes her a
vampire. Aileen wakes up, scared and mad. Mykil's battle of the heart
has just begun, and Aileen is taking no prisoners.
Aileen and Mykil
have begun an unusual relationship. One minute, Aileen is a quiet
children's book writer, now a full-fledged vampire. She is not sure
she wants to live this kind of life. Mykil must prove to Aileen that
it is not that bad being a vampire, and can be quite enjoyable. Even
though she is his mate, he never expected to love or need her so much.
Mykil has to find a way to win her heart before she decides she might
not want to live anymore.
Midas's Treasure is
indeed a treasure of a story. I found myself wrapped up in Aileen's
situation. She is rather calm about the whole "vampire" thing. When
Aileen finds out that Mykil is not lying, it is interesting how she
adapts to all the new changes in her. Poor, Mykil he does not know how
to deal with all of Aileen's radical mood changes. A paranormal love
story that will leave you wanting more, and more you'll get. The last
page, gives hint of the next story plot to come. Very nice vampire
book to add to the list.
