A New Threat Taunts Savannah’s Vampyre Dynasty …

After two hundred years of womanizing ways, powerful eternal and shameless badboy Reece Clairmont is definitely the rogue of the realm.

scandalous ways without getting her heart broken?

Reviews:

“Reece Clairmont, an eternal playboy, enjoyed his life as a successful club owner, where mortals and eternals mingled freely. He drove expensive sports cars, wore the best clothes, and had women falling all over themselves in order to meet him. Reece was satisfied with his life, but the recent trouble within the Realm had thrown him off his schedule, and seeing how happy his cousins Simon and Tristan were with their mates had him feeling a bit discontented.

Sidney had given up a promising career as a doctor when she was turned in order to save her life. Being a descendent of Tristan’s, she was more than welcome in the faction, though she felt unsettled and useless. Her fighting skills were limited, and her medical skills were only needed in the height of battle. Her growing attraction to Reece was something she desperately tried to hide behind a wall of sarcasm, though everyone but Reece was well aware of it. With the trouble within the Realm somewhat quieted down, Sidney had more time to think about her situation…and Reece.

Sidney was used to being alone in her previous life, and I liked seeing her adjust to living in a house full of people after she became an eternal. She tried to keep her attraction to Reece hidden, but eventually it had to come out. Reece’s playboy exterior was an excellent cover-up for his deeper feelings, which were shown by his restoration of his childhood home and his willingness to take in a ward, a young girl who had been turned and abandoned by her maker. This was an excellent story that perfectly ended the Everlasting trilogy, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.” Bitten By Books

“When you’re over two centuries old and your motto has always been love ‘em and leave ‘em and your now quiet heart would beat for only one woman, suddenly the title of Rogue Everlasting is in danger.

Lisa Phillips gives us one heck of a paranormal romance in Rogue Everlasting. Her plot is unique and with book stores and eReaders jammed full of Vampire romance, that says something. It’s the story itself that is amazing and the way that this storyteller spins her tale that kept me enraptured from page one to the end. Her characters are larger than life, and yet with every page I read I could easily see them floating through the night, loving their families and taking care of business like they were everyday ordinary people.

Her dialogue is a mix of Southern Charm, everyday speak and a bit of language from the times of knights and ladies, and best of all it’s easy to read and understand. Her hero, Reece Clairmont, is a rogue of the first degree and when this talented author brings him to his knees at the altar of true love she does it with flair and with heart.

Her heroine, Sidney Chambers, is all business and it’s really fun to watch as she loses her heart to our handsome rogue. The romance is timeless — boy chases girl until she lets him catch her — with a few paranormal issues included to make the novel hard to put down. The love scenes are sensual and tastefully understated, yet I could feel the heat myself.

The biggest sign of a great storyteller is that I couldn’t stop reading, not when domestic chores or even pleasures called to me, I had to read one more page, one more chapter until I finally closed the book with a definite sigh.

This is a must read for any lover of paranormal romance and even if you’re not a fan of the genre give this one a try because it’s just that good of a story.

Ms. Phillips I want to thank you for one of the most impressive novels I’ve ever read and I assure you that this will not be the last I read of you.” Long and Short Romance Reviews

“Lisa Phillips has certainly managed to capture my attention this year ! A new author on the block, her opening book Obsession Everlasting, certainly showed “her stuff”. Ms Phillips’ writing skills masterfully weaving a Trilogy of The Rhealm. The second book of the series, I was happy to read and review, Knight Everlasting was also a continuation of the “family” of vampires, who live to co-exist with us mortal humans…”

Simon and Fallyn were sexy and sensual, with a lot of lighthearted dialogue that Ms Phillips has a way with. Tristan and Kate are fierce, and oh so sexy and when Tristian lovingly called “the old one” at 11,000 or so years old, calls his Kate My Lady you just swoon. The entire ensemble come back for more in the third book Rogue Everlasting.

Reece, the bad boy of the family, meets Sidney, a doctor, who has been bitten by an enemy and in order to save her, he must turn her much to her chagrin. We learn about the baggage the both bring with them, and the sensual dance begins….

The old world charm in which they live in the south, in mansions beyond our wildest dreams, drinking blood from chalices, served by butler and maid faithfuls . Of course the Rhealm is not always peaceful and we have pitfalls along the way, and in the end, whether Mortal or Immortal, the love of ones family and having the love of ones mate is really what life or existence is all about. If this sounds mushy to you…maybe.but I for one could not stop reading this series.

Ms Phillips has shown me her writing style is smooth, her dialogue strong, and the fun shines through more than most I have read recently…Some really laugh out loud moments…Some very sensual scenes between the characters…and most of all the love.
I had a hard time writing this…For in doing so, it means the end ….and I so hate to see my friends go….Hopefully Ms Phillips will pick up pen and grace us again …..” Paranormal Romance Guild

Excerpt:

A slow, sexy grin crept across his face as Reece offered one of the two chalices he held in his hands. Sidney took it, shifting her gaze to the explosion of climbing roses spilling over the low wall ringing the terrace. Concentrating on shielding her thoughts, she sipped the chalice as the breeze ruffled the fragrant blooms.

“Spying, doc?” He lifted a brow as he watched her over the rim of his cup. When she didn’t reply, he lowered his chalice, and stepped closer. “If it is moonlight and romance you’re after, maybe I can help you out,” he whispered in her ear.

Leaning away from him slightly, she lifted her gaze to his. “I was wondering what Ryder could possibly be thinking,” she replied honestly.

Reece looked out over the lawn as the boy knelt to sprinkle more breadcrumbs onto the water for the swan. “Pretty blonde, who looks at him like he’s a god.” The grin widened. “I can assure you, Sidney, he isn’t thinking. All the blood has left his brain.”

She smiled. “I’m sure you’re right.” Stepping around him, she went to the doors. “Why else would Ryder be so enthralled with Victor’s fledgling?”

The terrace doors clicked closed behind her as the chalice slipped from Reece’s fingers. It clanked to the flagstone as he watched the kid dig his hands into the pockets of his jeans, and stare into the forest. He turned, his eyes colliding with Reece’s just before he stretched out his arms, and took flight over the sprawl of trees.

Reece stepped to the edge of the terrace, dragging both hands through his neatly combed hair. “Damn it, Ryder,” he muttered as his head dropped back onto his shoulders. The moon leered down at him as his gaze searched the black sky. Snatching the chalice from the ground, he flew into the library, and caught her before she could make it out into the hallway. His fingers tightened around her wrist as he pulled Sidney up against him.

“We have two choices,” he hissed as she glared up at him. “We tell the others about this, and risk the whole Montague’s and Capulet’s saga, which I will remind you does not end happily ever after. And the original version doesn’t even include Fallyn.” He lifted a brow. “Or we keep an eye on him, and try to figure out what the hell he’s thinking.”

“I am not going to be a party to this.” She snatched her arm from his grasp. “You want to risk Fallyn finding out we knew, and didn’t tell her?” She shook her head. “Absolutely not.”

“Sidney.” He trailed her out into the hallway. Pinning her against a wall, he pressed his nose to hers. “I know it’s probably a stretch for you, but for just a minute imagine being a teenager. A teenager who thinks you’re in love. A teenager who thinks you’re in love with the very least acceptable option as far as everyone else in your life is concerned.” He nodded his head. “Yeah. It’s gets no better than that, sweetheart.” He glanced down the hallway as she chewed her lip. “We tell him to stay away from her, and her hold on him is that much stronger.”

“Maybe she really cares for him.”

He drew a ragged breath as his gaze met hers again. “What is your gut telling you?”

“Reece, that is no way to way to reach a logical conclusion.”

“All right, let’s look at the facts. According to Ryder she runs with a faction of teenage eternals, who live in some abandoned warehouse, doing odd jobs to support themselves. Her diabolical maker is dead, thank God, and other than said teenage eternals she probably has no one. Except Ryder. Who lives in the manor on the hill with an entire host of doting guardians, one of which is the king of the eternal realm,” he gritted out. “Ryder is a great kid and all, but I’m thinking she has an agenda. Especially as it is Victor’s cold, ruthless, greedy blood running through her veins.”

“Which is all the more reason for us to tell the others,” she insisted.

“Okay.” He stepped back, smoothing his tie over his chest. “We’ll tell them. Katie will break her legs getting to the swords and stakes her mate has piled up in the cellar while Tristan forbids the kid to have anything to do with the girl. You and I can stand back and watch Simon clean up the mess, when Fallyn’s head explodes.” He gave her a chilly smile. “Sound good to you?”
