Carson Locke is a Tabula Rasa vampire—a dangerous rarity in the world of vampires. With one bite, he can wipe clean a vampire’s mind, creating a mindless drone. Because of this, Carson has spent his entire twenty-three years sheltered at home. That changes, however, when his entire family is murdered.

On the run and near death, Carson meets Commander Lincoln Samuels, a beautiful vampire who tries to heal him. In doing so, Carson is bonded to Lincoln and turned into something the vampire world has never seen.


Lincoln is a Sanatore vampire with the ability to heal other vampires. He heads a team in the New Vampire Justice police force in Utica, NY. Late one night, he’s called to a local Vampire Blood Market where a starving Tabula Rasa vampire is about to be executed by one of his officers. Feeling a strong connection to Carson, Lincoln wants to heal the broken man despite knowing the risk in doing so—it could destroy Lincoln and cost him the chance to love again. And he soon discovers there’s a greater evil threatening to take Carson from him.


Can two vampires who have loved and painfully lost in the past learn to trust one another, defeat the evil rising against them, and dare to love forever?

Do I need to buy Dare to Love Forever again to follow the series?
Probably not. The plot points are the same as is the ending. If you read the first book you will understand the second, A Chance for Us.
I heard there's 10,000 more words. What has changed?
It isn't so much changes as expansion on what was already there. Most of the words added were in the first 40% of the story. The evolution of Carson's and Lincoln's relationship was slowed down to take away the rushed feel. Lincoln was softened up a bit, not too much.
The history and tensions between the vampires and the humans was expanded with more past and current information. This is important as the series moves forward but there isn't anything in this book needed for the next. The basic info was in the first edition.
