Revel in this reveal from the 5 star vampire romance Devon Ruthin and a Vampire in Love

This weekend's excerpt is a reveal, from Devon Ruthin and a Vampire in Love, clues to Elise and her magical ancient abilities

 Strangely, Drew began to talk about Devon.
“I’ve been thinking, and I would like to know what exactly the relationship is between you and Devon, the prince of darkness?” His tone was vitriolic as he said Devon’s name and added the nickname he had given to Devon long ago.
Elise had covered her nakedness with the sheet from the bottom of the bed and was sitting up. She took Drew’s hand, he still appealed to her. She had begun to put that down to sheer sexual attraction. She hadn’t wanted to admit it, but it was probable, one look at him and she was confused. Drew liked that she had taken his hand, and he turned his head to look at her.
“Drew, I’m just a friend, I helped him with his garden and I visit him, sure I do, but there’s nothing else”. Elise had left out her part in Devon’s treatment, because that would lead to unwanted questions. Drew had not said anything and so a few seconds later she added, “I hope you believe me Drew, truth is you are the only one I have ever loved and made love with”.
She had let him know that because it was true, and she wanted some truth in their encounter.

Drew sat up to face her and began to kiss her. He nuzzled down her throat to the soft part of her shoulder and began to suck.
Elise shivered with pleasure, he had done this to her last night too, and she knew that humans did this weird kissing. It felt good but she put her hand to his head to bring his lips to hers, he kissed all the way up her throat to her lips.

Drew had taken a little blood from her last night and just then with his love bites. It was nothing in his mind; he sucked just the tiniest bit harder than a human would. He excused the action but he could taste her blood and as he kissed her lips, he moved a hand down her body and took away the sheet. He covered her body with his own. He would make love to her, that way the desire for more of her blood would subside.
Elise held him to her body as he began to make love to her, it could be the last time she thought as she made a little sound of pleasure.
When Drew’s lips had reached hers, Elise had registered the vaguest hint of honey and then been overtaken by the depth of feeling it gave her when Drew touched her body the way he did.
Sometime later Drew held her close, he felt very calm, it was a good feeling; she is good for me he thought, just being with her, it’s so much better than I remember. He left his eyes closed, and he could hear a bird singing, he heard the leaves on the tree outside one of his windows rustle. He fancied he could smell the roses that were down there too under the window in the small patch of garden, a pleasant scent, one that stirred memories of his mother’s garden.
Elise was thinking about Drew and how she didn’t want to spend the rest of her life with him, he drank blood, he would have to kill; maybe she should leave before they were in deeper, as it was, she knew there was going to be trouble. Drew seemed to be sighing, he seemed happy, she could see a little smile coming and going on his lips as she raised herself up on her elbow to look at him.
Deciding that she would manipulate him into going out to see a friend, thinking that this would give her chance to leave without a scene, she concentrated her thoughts. She remembered one of the names from last night, Bodie, so she used that name in her mind manipulation. 
She expected him to sit up and announce that he was going out to catch up with Bodie but he didn’t, he opened his eyes and smiled at her. “Elise it’s late and you have not eaten. Why don’t we go out, get you something to eat, I can stand the sun in small doses, if I am covered up. Let’s do that”.
She looked at him closely, he was somehow more sincere than before, and he meant this concern in his voice. Shocked that her powers had not worked, she nodded, “Ok Drew let’s do that”.
Elise had only brought a small overnight bag, and she went into the adjoining bathroom to shower quickly taking it with her. She was out of the shower and in clean underwear before she went to the mirror to comb her wet hair when she saw the love bites, two of them close together, they were very red and a long oval shape. She touched them, this was how Drew had taken her blue eyes, he had tasted her blood through these florid lesions when they made love years ago and now he had done it again. That was why he had not been manipulated into going out, he must have a little of her resistance to mind manipulation by virtue of having sucked her blood. Elise put her jeans and shirt back on. She combed her wet hair and left the bathroom to find Drew gone.

 "Tessa Stokes writes so fluidly.  Her imagination and description pulled me completely into the story as though I was dreaming it and moving right along the stream of consciousness without realizing how many hours slipped past.  Several times I had to remind myself to stop to eat or drink, her writing is so hypnotic!   I am anxiously awaiting the release of book number two in her trilogy!  Five stars!!!" Amazon reviewer.
