One Touch

Gabrielle Ryan felt an electric attraction to her new employer the first time he reached out and shook her hand. She dreams of him, fantasizes about him, but all Nikolai wants is an assistant—and to Gabby’s chagrin, it’s not to assist him with taking off his pants!

One Beat

An ache has inhabited Nikolai Voinea’s chest for the last four hundred years. Yet stubbornly resolute not to repeat his father’s mistakes, Nikolai refuses to take the one female who is his heart’s greatest desire.

Captures His Heart Forever

When murder charges make Gabby second guess everything she knows about him, she’s hurt and angry and determined to walk away. But Nikolai’s just as determined to do everything within his power to keep her.

          My Thoughts: 

     Morgan was able to switch gears from fiction to paranormal with ease. Which is why it was easy for me  to fall right into her story. I'm normally very skeptical in reading a novel by an author who I know writes in a certain genre and switches to another. It's usually a difficult transition, but not for her. I've enjoyed all her other words in print so I had high hopes for Heart Ache. I've had the pleasure of working with Morgan and getting to know her as an author, so I know how much of herself she pours in her books. To which I must say Morgan delivered!

     Heart Ache was a well thought out novel. I absolutely LOVE the main character Niko. Wait, he doesn't like to be called that. Forgive me, it's Nikolai. In most books your main character is a female but in Heart Ache there's two, Gabrielle and Nikolai, however my favorite is Nikolai. Most male protagonists are all macho and obnoxious. But from the beginning Nikolai showed a soft side to him which was quite endearing. His nervousness made him even more sexy and adorable. Which is probably why he has Gabby eating out of his hands without even knowing. Even though they both crazy about each other, their stubbornness gets in their way of each others happiness.

     Morgan came up with thee most unique idea for this story. She created a vampire world with a great twist. I take my hat off to her for making up this world and writing it to perfection. I am in awe on how this world was so easily processed in my head. I had no problems visualizing every scene. Heartache has a bit of everything, love, suspense and thriller. She mastered it all in one book! Kudos to one of my favorite authors! She outdid herself yet once again. 4.5 out of 5 stars! A must buy and a definite Good Choice for Reading!
