Embrace the Dark

Embrace the Dark - Caris Roane

Gerrod is a Mastyr vampire of the Realm of Merhaine, a parallel universe to Earth's. This realm has an access point near Flagstaff, AZ. Abigail is human. When her parents died, she was the primary caregiver for her sister. She opened a bakery for her sister (who loved to bake) in AZ and was in the process of opening a second location in Merhaine when this story opens.
For the last year, they've been both curious and attracted to each other. Unbeknownst to her, she has a special ability that is both needed and rare. Gerrod is both attached and horrified by his attraction to her, because she is human.
This world was intriguing, the secondary characters fun and diverse (trolls, elves, fae), and good evil characters. Gerrod and Abigail are good characters too.
