They lay in bed, entwined with each other and slick with sweat and semen. Jeffrey turned on his back, and as Bruce hovered over him he cupped his chin and brought their lips together, tasting. Bruce deepened the kiss, then drew back a little, gently stroking the soft skin on Jeffrey's cheeks with his thumbs.

Well, Kathy Griffith’s done it again … made me fall even deeper in love with an ancient Vampire who favors a kilt, and two young men who passionately love each other.
The characters Bruce and Jeffrey are not cardboard cutouts. They have a past … they are complex … they are the kinds of men you want to bring home to mom … they are flawed and splendid. They are lovable, endearing and enduring.
Alasdair the ancient Scottish vampire is the kind of well-conceived, rich character who should (and I hope will) live on in many books to come, in as many ages as Griffith can stretch her prodigious imagination to place him.
Beyond great characterization, HEART’S EMBERS has an element of mystery and heart-stopping suspense—the same facets that made its predecessor THE ANCIENT a memorable read.
I give this remarkable book five stars for its story arc, its characters, and its bone-rattling action. More, please!
