Are all those who are "different" than you automatically bad? Certainly the vast majority of books published about vampires paint them as "in league with the Devil" and "evil personified." Often they are shown almost like "shape-shifters," able to take on the appearance of beauty, while underneath lurks a hideous killer of unspeakable ugliness. "Immortal Relations" starts with a true-life event that occurred to the author's parents. It was finding out about this situation that spurred the author to write the series. The first book explores love and aspects of it's physical expression (sex) so it's appropriate for open-minded adults. Read Richard Rasmussen's comment for http://amzn.com/B006ZCBT6G on the first book. The second book "Immortal Relations, Love and War" http://amzn.com/B00A4IEHL6 carries the story forward and has a summary of important parts of the first book in the form of a conversation between two of the main characters (this makes it a good starting point for those for whom stories with sex is an issue). While I still consider this novel "adult fare" I found a way to lessen the "explicitness" of the togetherness...I think you may laugh at the way it's done. The second in the series has a lot about how power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Watch the Chinese Communists try to capture the riches in Siberia and run up against not only our guardian vampires but the love of the Russian people for their homeland. Greedy OPEC Ministers try to destroy Russian oil production in order to destroy the economy of Russia and The West - actions that could become more than just ideas in a novel. "Immortal Relations Coming Out" http://amzn.com/B00G5BQS18 explores the destructiveness of the new Soviet style of Socialism taking over America and how the country is heading down the path to the loss of its Constitution and personal freedoms guaranteed in the Bill of Rights. These are all strong stories not for the faint of heart!
