"Come Undone"

The descent to Warwick’s chambers wasn’t a quick journey. Smooth and steady, the elevator traveled without a sense of urgency or regard to the mounting anticipation that stirred within its confines.

But nothing made much sense in Isla’s world anymore, so an unusually long elevator ride didn’t faze her or bring about an onslaught of questions. She didn’t care where she was descending to or what would lie in her path once they got to their destination.

If anything, she expected the unexpected.

Of course, the whirlwind of events from the last few hours had a lot to do with her unresponsiveness, but the fact that Warwick had her deliciously preoccupied seemed to be the biggest contributing factor.

Pinned against the elevator wall, Isla let Warwick take her lips without so much as a word. Quietly and intently he ravished her, burying his tongue deep in her mouth.

She’d thought she’d been on the receiving end of a passionate kiss before, but the way Warwick took her lips, she felt as if she’d never been kissed in her life. He had a way of demanding more not only from her body, but her soul. His lips did everything to unravel her, bleed her of the desire that flowed through her veins.

“For so long, Isla,” Warwick moaned.

“God, I know.”

“I told Dorian...I promised...” Warwick struggled to complete his sentences as Isla worshiped his mouth. “But I can’t help it. I can’t control myself with you.”

“Then don’t.”


Warwick, an Elite member of the Vampire Architects, was chosen as Isla Joseph’s Protector at the moment of her birth. Four decades later, he struggles to hide the love he harbors for his charge. When the time comes for her to learn of Warwick’s existence, lust is a beast he can’t contain, nor can Isla fight her instant attraction to this mysterious “stranger”. The pair comes together in a frenzied feast of flesh.

But their intimacy has consequences. Consequences for Isla, when she discovers her lover is a vampire…for the team of Architects, who are struggling to save her from a horrific future…for Warwick, when he’s forced to wipe every trace of himself from Isla’s memory.

Isla, Warwick and the Architects will soon discover love isn’t so easily erased. And while fate may have dark designs for Isla…destiny has other plans.

A Romantica® paranormal erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

Barnes and Noble-

Multi-published author Maya DeLeina was born and raised on the beautiful and romantic beaches of Oahu, Hawaii. Relocating to Colorado, Maya's crystal blue oceans and powdery white sands were traded for enchanting forests, mystic mountains and golden plains of promise.

Living just on the outskirts of Manitou Springs, the town's history of spiritual healing, eclectic flare, fabled underground tunnels and rumored lore of wizardry and witchcraft rekindled Maya's love for the paranormal, metaphysical and most of all, vampires.

One bite and she was hooked.

With a hint of incense lofting in the air and the majestic Pikes Peak sitting in picture perfect view from her windows, Maya can be found relaxing in the recesses of her comfy couch, sinking her teeth into crafting and weaving seducing and erotic tales of vampires that may or may not roam her beloved town.

One read and you'll be hooked!
