Capture by Sandra Carmel

Happy Friday, people! I’m psyched to share a new paranormal romance release by Sandra Carmel. Capture is the first book in The Cure trilogy. Check it out – your new vampire book boyfriend awaits you…

When an ethics-bound geneticist discovers an evil plot to wipe the vampire gene from existence, will he expose the generations-old atrocity and risk losing the love of his life?

Erasing the past is the only way to survive the future…

It’s beyond love at first sight the day geneticist Richard Hall spots secretary Eva Fjelstad. They have so much in common—a love of rare steak, red wine and music, and they work for the renowned, yet enigmatic research corporation Sub Rosa.

The beauty of being a bright young geneticist is that Richard has access to cutting-edge technology, including a newly developed soulmate serum. A sip of the serum and a brush of hands confirm Richard and Eva are destined to be together.

But there’s a problem.

Sub Rosa in the swinging sixties isn’t as peace-loving as it seems, and when Richard uncovers corruption at the very core of the company—a secret that goes to the heart of his parents’ disappearance—he’s faced with a decision no man wants to make.

For generations, the Jade and Violet vampire clans have roamed the world, posing little threat to the blissfully ignorant human population. However, it’s Richard who unearths Sub Rosa’s genocidal scheme to eradicate the vampire species from existence.

Should Richard stay true to his moral compass and risk his relationship with Eva to expose the agency’s deep-seated cruelty and deception? Or does he toe the company line, let vampires vanish from the world and keep his soulmate safe, secure and by his side forever?





Sandra Carmel is an Australian-based author of engaging, thought-provoking romance novels, novellas, short stories and poetry, who writes for the pleasure of stimulating herself and others with words. An obsession with classic romance novels, particularly Jane Eyre, combined with marrying her own Mr Rochester were key motivators in commencing her romance writing journey. So far, she has taken the scenic route from contemporary to paranormal to erotic, creating provocative stories that delve beneath the surface of desire. She reads and writes a lot, frequently disrupted by her ever-attentive, cheeky cats, and sinfully amorous husband.

    I still absolutely love Eric from the 14 book series Sookie Stackhouse by Charlaine Harris. Though I could list endless others.

      Ah, don’t even get me started on my beloved Eric Northman! He’s the whole reason I watched True Blood! <3

    My favorite vampire is Cade, created by Christopher Farnsworth in BLOOD OATH. Followed by Henry Fitzroy, the bastard son of Henry the 8th, created by Tanya Huff in BLOOD LINES. And there are many more . . . the one in the Midnight. Texas series created by Charlaine Harris.

      I love the wide variety of vampires throughout books and movies/TV over the years – the choices are endless! Thanks for dropping by!

  3. What a clever premise. I always feel so inadequate when other authors come up with these awesome story ideas. I feel like plain Jane over here.

      Welcome to the realm of authors, Patricia! Where doubts and the sense of inferiority strike on a daily basis, usually when you least expect it. 🙂 And I have to disagree – your stories are far from Plain Jane. <3
