Today’s Fresh Faced author is Regina Morris. Her new book, Eternal Service is currently out and was one of the best paranormal romances I’ve read lately. Be sure to check out my review further down.

When Raymond, part of a covert special ops team of vampires who protects the President of the United States, teams up with a federal operative of the human female persuasion–who has no idea that vampires even exist–will his mission or his heart be compromised first?
Career military woman, Alex Brennan, is being offered the promotion of a lifetime – and with it a romance that she has desperately been seeking. Does she dare accept the position as Director of the Colony, an elite group of deadly creatures of the night and risk a dangerous romance with a man who isn’t even human?
Eternal Service was a wonderful paranormal romance. Regina Morris knows how to draw you into a story and keep you begging for more. Eternal Service focuses on the idea of a secret detail that protects the President and few other officials. This detail called The Colony is comprised of vampires with varying abilities. Some are pure bred, others are half-breeds and others are turned humans. The story centers around Raymond, the head of the Colony and an almost 200 yr old vampire, and Alex a career military woman who becomes the liaison between the Colony and the President. There love affair grows quickly but also has obstacles to overcome. Within the love story is also the political thriller of vampires trying to infiltrate the Supreme Court. It is the Colony’s job to prevent that from happening.
This was a wonderfully written book. I believe this has the potential to be a phenomenal series. Alex and Raymond’s love story is enthralling. It makes me want a vampire of my very own. The side characters are also phenomenal. Brandon and Matt are great as the conspiracy theorists and Sterling and Sulee are wonderful as Raymond’s family. But, it wasn’t just the love story or the characters. It was the entire concept that was done so well it was believable. The conspiracy theorists out there probably have even thought of this theory. The mixture of a political thriller and a paranormal romance was skillfully done. Both parts were equally represented and flowed very smoothly. Overall, I would say this was a home run for Regina Morris. I can’t wait to read Sterling’s book next.
