Elizabeth Hunter -Valley of the Shadow : An Elemental World Holiday Novella
What a wonderful pre-Holiday surprise. Not only does this Novella have a reunion of many of my favorite characters from Elemental World but it also features two characters I’ve been a long time to see their story continue to unfold. This is truly a wonderful gift, thank you Elizabeth!
Natalie and Baojia’s story started in “Blood and Sand”, which was an amazing novel . The sexy water vampire (Baojia) mate with Natalie, a dedicated journalist. They agreed to delay turning Nathalie for several years so that they could have children and enjoy a somewhat typical family life. With two wonderful children and they are balancing a full life when fate throws them a snag. In order to save Natalie’s life she must undergo the change to vampire years earlier than planned.
A reunion/Holiday vacation is arranged in Patagonia where Gio and Beatrice have a home. They assemble not only to celebrate the holiday
A but also to support and help Baojia and Nathalie through this transition.
An awesome Holiday Novella any time of year. It’s a special adventure that pulls at our heartstrings and makes you smile throughout this special adventure. We see how important friendship, persistence, love , dedication and family make this novella’s HEA even more special. Enjoy!
