Desires Revealed by Rebeka Harrington
Rebeka Harrington caught my attention on a writer’s website by saying she liked to cruise the internet as her alter ago Bektamun, a 3000 year old vampire with a penchant for revealing secrets. Bek (and Bektamun) have just released a second novel and she has agreed to answer a few questions about her new book right here on this website! Read on.
Escape from the religious war leads Nicole and her family to the most unlikely rescuer, a vampire. Nicole discovers love and a new life, but finds herself inexplicably drawn in to a private war between her protector and an extremist faction of vampires. The deeper she gets involved in the vampire world the higher the price she will have to pay to obtain her desires.
Rejoin “Vampires Revealed” narrator Bektamun, in Paris 1572, at the height of the religious war between Catholics and Huguenots, the day of the St Bartholomew’s Massacre. Discover the story behind her rescue of the Gervais family and how Nicole became her Avetser and was made vampire. Desires Revealed will also introduce you to Oskar, leader of the Eleiveb.

I don’t really like to think of this as a series, more a collection of similarly themed stories. And I admit, that is probably just me trying to dodge the pressure of having to write a series.With Desires Revealed I’ve tried to make it as stand-alone as possible, simply because it is a very different style of writing from the first. Most people are going to like one more than the other. If you’ve read the first one then you will likely join the dots quicker, but it’s not essential to be able to enjoy the story.
That’s a tough one, but ultimately I suppose I would have to say yes. One of the key concepts in the book is the role and expectations women had to face during that era.
Warning: this a major spoiler if you haven’t read the first book. My vampires were born and descended from humans. Now go and read the first book to find out what other vampire revelations I have in store for you 🙂
