Alpha Pair by Brenda Sparks

Genre: Paranormal Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
How strong is the blood that binds? Tatiana Bolovich is a beautiful femme fatale with a haunting history. Having recently discovered the brutish Demetri Romanoff is her heartmate, she spent the past year avoiding him, but the Fates have other plans.
Demetri commands every situation. A strong, valiant warrior he’s used to being in control, that is until he is kidnapped by demons. Forced to endure unspeakable experiments at the hands of his enemy, the Alpha discovers just how out of control life can get.
Summoned by the Alpha Council, Tatiana grudgingly helps track Demetri down, promising herself that she will disappear from his life forever once the job is done. But matters of the heart are not so easily ignored. Will she give him a chance to prove himself, or will she deny her nature and slip away into the night?

Morgan D'Arcy: A Vampyre Rhapsody by Linda Nightingale @Lnightingale #RLFblog #vampiresLinda Nightingale, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your research for your book.

Research for Morgan D’Arcy: A Vampyre Rhapsody

In my mythos, my vampires never died to be resurrected corpses. They are mutants, a virus having altered their mortal DNA into immortals with powers greater than their original human selves. Interestingly enough, I found the information below on the internet. My viral mutations are actually possible (maybe not to the extent in my books yet still within reason):
“About eight percent of human genetic material comes from a virus and not from our ancestors, according to a new study. The research shows that the genomes of humans and other mammals contain DNA derived from the insertion of bornaviruses, RNA viruses whose replication and transcription takes place in the nucleus.”
Date: January 8, 2010
Source: University of Texas at Arlington
In the 2000s, a scientist at the University of Michigan studied people with HIV and found other viruses in the blood of these subjects. Surprisingly, these viruses came from within the patients’ own DNA.
Retroviruses, including HIV, share three common genes: gag, which gives rise to the inner shell that stores the virus’s genes; env makes knobs on the outer surface of the virus, allowing it to adhere to the cells and invade them; and finally pol. The latter makes an enzyme which introduces the virus’s genes into the host cell’s DNA.
Actually, the human genome contains segments of DNA matching pol, env, and gag. Scientists have found sizeable quantity of retrovirus DNA in our genes, in fact, as stated above, eight percent of the human genome. Both in human and other species, studies of these endogenous retroviruses reveal that they have genetically merged with the human DNA. Retroviruses regularly infected our ancestors, but rarely infected sperm or an egg, but when they did, they managed to permeate an embryo, new cells in the embryo inheriting the retrovirus DNA. When the child grew into an adult and produced offspring, the DNA of the virus was transmitted as well.
So, Morgan, Lucien and the Vampyre could possibly exist.
Happy Saturday! You have viral altered DNA.

Morgan D’Arcy: A Vampyre Rhapsody by Linda Nightingale

The greatest enemy of a vampire is boredom. Four centuries of existence have taught Lord Morgan Gabriel D’Arcy to fear nothing and no one. Humans and their weapons have little chance against his preternatural speed and arcane powers. Vampires are viral mutations of human DNA. Still, the Vampyre code requires secrecy, and he has learned to hide his nature from the world. The lure of mortality, of a life in the sun, puts Morgan again and again at the mercy of calculating human women though they fail to consider his charm and determination into the equation. However, even grooming a future bride from infancy proves to be fraught with heartbreak. And second chances are not always what they seem unless… you are Morgan. Immortality and beauty, aren’t they grand?
