Jessica Stone and Jack Mason are the heroine and hero of my Redcliffe novels. At least, that was my original intention. It is funny how the characters write themselves once you give them some freedom! Jessica is a strong-willed woman, and when she embarks on her new relationship with Jack in the first novel Love Hurts (A Redcliffe Novel), she has a lot of tough lessons to learn. Jack is quite old-fashioned in his approach, largely because of his age (the vampire is roughly 130 years old!).
As the story unfolds, Jessica and Jack find themselves thrown into emotional turmoil when circumstances and other characters intervene to try and destroy their relationship. It begins when Jessica is drawn into a feud between the Mason brothers and a fierce werewolf alpha that they have been tracking for the past four years as part of their police work. The battle takes a turn for the worse, the violence increases, and poor Jessica is attacked by the wolf and almost dies as a result of her injuries.
Moving into the second book Love Kills (A Redcliffe Novel), we find Jessica and Jack coming to terms with their trauma. As a result of what happened with the werewolves, Jessica begins to feel more emotion towards Jack’s identical twin brother, Danny, who happens to be the Redcliffe alpha. Jessica also struggles with her newly discovered heritage as a witch, that has lain mostly dormant throughout her orphan life.
Tension increases as we race through the Redcliffe saga, with Jessica alternately feeling a furious anger towards Jack, and an overwhelming and powerful force of love. She learns that to love a vampire is to give up a part of your human soul in more ways than one. Jessica finds herself committing acts that she would never even have contemplated before, and Jack is driven to extremes in the torment of his love for a woman that he wants to believe is innocent and pure, and he wants to protect her from the dangers of his life.
By the time we reach the third book, Love Redeems (A Redcliffe Novel), we find the ultimate test for our lovers. Jack is seduced once again by his vampire maker, and Jessica struggles to keep a moral distance from his brother Danny. She teams up with the werewolf alpha to try and save Jack from his downfall, while at the same time fighting with her witch familiar about their relationship with the Redcliffe wolves. Needless to say, it is action packed, tense and very passionate!
