Then one of them attacked her family, and she threw out her goth attire and vowed to keep clear of her enemies. Until she heard about Ethan Parrish: a sweet, sizzling-hot former college football player, turned into a vampire against his will.
I think I'd freak out. Especially after finding out the few inhabitants of the town are used as blood bags for a coven of vampires. The rest of the book is about Kadie's relationship with the townspeople, but mostly with Rylan Saintcrow, a master vampire and the one in charge of the town. Sadly, I don't think I really liked any of the characters besides Micah, and he wasn't even introduced until the last few chapters.
Rylan was a bit boring for a year old vampire. I was hoping for a bit of a bad boy, but he never actually followed through on any of his threats because of his love for Kadie. Before you actually met him, the ladies of the town make him out to be a monster. I was kind of hoping for a strong Alpha male like Barrons from the Fever series.
He was actually just really whipped. Kadie frustrated me because of how quickly she forgot she was a human, with a family. A family that included a terminally ill sister. Being locked in Morgan Creek meant she was kept away from her when she was dying.
And she was cold, and getting colder by the minute. A Vampire's Kiss Is Forever. Corinne Larkin saves his life after a savage beating. Kadie hesitated when the stranger opened the door; then, taking a deep breath, she stepped inside. She was here on business, nothing else.
How do you think about anything besides that? How do you fall for the person keeping you away from her? The reason the vampires kept people locked in the town is because of the vampire hunters. They don't want word getting out about where they are, and this way they didn't have to put themselves in danger when they needed to feed. Is this romantic, because Kadie couldn't stand seeing him hurt?
But all I could think about was, these people are risking their lives to save humans. I mean, some of these vampires KILL for fun. What the heck, Kadie? This screamed "Stockholm syndrome", to me.

When she tries to leave the town on foot she finds she cannot leave. The town is surrounded by mountains and magic, all who enter must stay The town is inhabited by vampires. Lucky for Kadie, the man who helped her is the local vampire sheriff, which makes her off limits to the other vampires.

Nov 24, Paige rated it it was amazing Shelves: i-own , books , loved-it. Amanda Ashley is my favorite vampire author. Everything they could possible want is taken care of for them, except their freedom. They rule the town during the day, but at night they are expected to feed the vampires. Kadie Andrews is a freelance writer and photographer. Derrick Vaughan is quick to come to her aid at her arrival and sets her up for the night. The next day, she truly learns her fate from the other women. Not only is she trapped, but vampires are real and they are the cattle. Things start out tense due to the captivity.
She convinces him to let a few go and never rests until he finally ends up letting all the vampires go and giving the humans the option of leaving as well. He really does care for her, yet they both hold back saying the words, even though he can hear them in her head. With plans to England, Kadie convinces him to let her go home first. Saintcrow checks back with Morgan Creek after finding a fledgling from Lilith. Calling out to Kadie, she contacts Micah, the new vampire for help.
Reaching Saintcrow, Micah and Kadie are escaping when her father pulls a gun, laced with vampire bullets, and shoots at Saintcrow, but Kadie jumps in the way. With no other choice, Saintcrow takes her to their home and begs for her to stay long enough to give him her choice. She chooses him and wakes to her new life. Overall, I liked the town entrapment idea.
The struggle between accepting your fate because you were well taken care of or fighting for the life you lost was hard and real. Kadie had the same problem with Saintcrow. The romance between them was sweet and I really felt for Saintcrow. All the humans come off as very reactive, not proactive, as if they have no say in their own lives. Even Kadie, the heroine, seems to be constantly dealing with the situations she is put in. Then we have the only woman vampire, Lillith, an evil sadist who terrorizes the human men in the town.
I think that is part of his allure, the ultimate bad boy vibe that we get from him. The other vampires also give that off, too. I especially liked Micah, who was introduced near the end of the book. The set-up is such that the plot could have gone in what I felt was a very obvious direction.
It was a creative, unexpected ending, and I really like when stories are shaken up a bit, since I read so many romance novels.

If memory serves I read my first book by her in the late 90s. She has written two of my all-time-favorite books and now I can add one more to that list.
As Twilight Falls has a compelling story line and even more memorable characters. Kadie Andrews and Rylan Saintcrow are to die for…. Kadie is a strong heroine who does what she wants and tells it like it is, but with enough sensitivity Ms. Kadie is a strong heroine who does what she wants and tells it like it is, but with enough sensitivity to let Rylan take the roll of strong dominant hero. Darcy, Mr. Rochester, Lancelot, and Rhett Butler.
Kadie is a photographer and she gets lost, and stuck in, an almost ghost town called Morgan Creek. The town is weird and creepy. They hold the people who accidently wander in basically prisoner and are used as cattle to feed off by the vampires in the town. Saintcrow is the master vampire of the town, but he had buried himself in the earth for several years, but when Kadie enters he is drawn to her and her blood. She becomes the exclusive property of Saintcrow and no other vampire is allowed to touch her.
She wants to see her parents and her dying sister. Can Sintcrow keep his security and still let Kadie see her family? The world is different now, America is overrun with vampire hunters, and the feather in their cap would be Saintcrow. You have to read this one for yourself!

Amanda Ashley is one of those rare birds—a California As Twilight Falls (Morgan's Creek Book 1) by [Ashley, Amanda].
There is a reason for all of this and she soon finds it is a fate that she does not want. This aspect of the world was a little too unbelievable. As Twilight Falls is one of those books that had plenty of interesting concepts but just overall fell flat for me the reader. The moment he smells the sweet innocent Kadie he wants to wake, find her, and possess her. To keep pace with the hero Kadie fell just as flat. At first I thought her Stockholm Syndrome feeling towards Rylan were spot on.
When her thoughts of attraction to him started surfacing while thinking him a monster I was required to suspend more belief into this world than I cared to. Her family situation once revealed became predictable and I instantly knew exactly where that was headed.
This was obviously just not a book for me. I loved one so much that even four years later I remember the hero. Jan 19, Amy Jacobs rated it really liked it Shelves: books-i-own. I know this review is early, but it is hard for me to contain my excitement when it comes to books written by this author. She is one of my favorites when it comes to vampire romance. When Kadie Andrews gets lost and runs out of gas, she finds herself trapped in the town of Morgan Creek. When she is taken in by one of the town vampires, she can't believe vampires exist.

When the town people start revealing piece by piece why they are trapped in Morgan Creek, Kadie still refuses to accept being trapped like cattle. Even though she starts to fall for the head vampire named Rylan Saintcrow, she still craves her freedom and hoping to return to her sick sister and parents. While Kadie struggles with her feelings for Rylan and for captivity, Rylan is dealing with the few vampires in town planning a mutiny.
They are tired of following his rules and are wanting to embrace their predatory vampire nature.
The main reason I enjoyed this book -- and every book written by this author in the past -- is because of the way the vampire lore is portrayed. There are no sparkles and not all of the characters are always perfect. The vampires have killed -- they still kill at times -- but they do fall in love. Another great book by and author who stays true to her writing roots and always has me swept away from page one.
Mar 13, B. I received an uncorrected proof of this book for free through Goodreads First Reads! If I had to pick a word to describe this book I would have to go with "coooooornyyyyyy! Plus, the supporting characters are flat and sometimes irritating especially the women of the town - they hate Kadie, they don't, they're scared of her, they're not, they trust her, they don't. Even though this is a supernatural novel, even the human characters are unbelievable. On the traditional "romance novel" aspects - blink and you'll miss it, each and every time.
I will say this is a fast read and relatively entertaining if you don't have too high of standards. I definitely won't be reading the 2nd book that Ashley has oh so obviously set up for here. Mar 31, Linda rated it really liked it. This is not my usual type of reading material.
I read the back of the book and it sounded like the character investigated ghost towns. This interested me; however, the ghost town was the home of vampires. Photographer Kadie Andrews finds a secluded town during her trip to Wyoming to photograph ghost towns. There were a few people living here and a few of the undead. When Kadie tried to leave, she found that she was unable to cross the bridge to the outside world.
As Rylan Saintcrow, the head vamp This is not my usual type of reading material. As Rylan Saintcrow, the head vampire, told her, they welcomed visitors to their town but visitors were never allowed to leave. The more Kadie was around Rylan, the more she liked him. When he took her to visit her family, the ironic thing was that her father was not only a respected doctor but was also a long-time vampire hunter who recognized Rylan for what he was.
He was determined to kill Rylan while Kadie was determined that he not kill her beloved. Jul 09, Kate rated it it was amazing.
