In Miami, vampire Galen Kent stops a mugger attacking Bookworm’s Delight store manager, Stephanie “Stevie” Novak. He offers to take her home, but she is wary of a stranger though she acknowledges he rescued her. A cop arrives who vouches that Galen is a good guy working as a police auxiliary. Reassured Stevie allows Galen to take her home, not realizing that he used his vampiric powers to coax the cop into praising him.

Unbeknownst to Galen, his clan leader Moloch observed the entire incident. Moloch does not comprehend why his selected replacement interceded and subsequently allowed a mortal to live. He plans to watch what develops and if necessary kill his ward and drink Stevie’s blood. As Galen begins to court Stevie, he knows why she is in his blood as he has waited for a millennium for the reincarnation of his beloved Linette and now that she is here, he will do whatever it takes to keep her safe from his mentor and others as well as find a way for them to be together forever.

Vampire romance fans will not want to miss the delightful ONE MORE TOMORROW, a fine tale starring two star-crossed lovers and the evil that shadows their every step. Galen is an admirable soul who drinks blood from only criminals while Stevie is a courageous person wondering if she truly loves the vampire. Although Moloch seems too intelligent and malevolent not to recognize the essential goodness of his apprentice (one can soundly counter argue that it goes against his blood to believe a vampire would love instead of hunt a human), readers will want more tales like this strong love story.
