The Champion Chronicles
Destiny is rewritten for Michael Malone, a mystically enhanced vampire, with an outcome so unexpected that everyone in his world is stunned—Michael most of all. Suddenly mortal, he faces challenges unlike any he has ever experienced.
Alana, his Guardian and soul mate, questions how the evil that lived within Michael was vanquished. Lukas, his human son, doesn’t trust his father's heartbeat, and Michael himself has no answers.
The bonds of their love will face the greatest test of all when the ancient demon anchored within Michael for 317 years is discovered alive within an innocent human.
Can Michael, Alana, and Lukas destroy the evil unleashed in order to give Michael his soul to keep?

Alana couldn’t pull her hand away from the center of Michael’s warm chest.
There’s no denying how deeply I’ve loved him since the first time he spoke to me—when I was seventeen—and totally taken with a singular creature of the night. No Guardian has ever been protected by a vampire. No vampire in recorded Georgian history has ever fought the beast within to take back his own conscience. Only Michael.
Bright Amalfi sun teased her eyes open as it danced across the majestic sleigh bed. Safe and secure, the man she loved was tight within her arms. Each miraculous, even breath of sleep Michael took kept a euphoric grin on her face. His head of wavy brown hair molded to her breast. One strong cheekbone, a partial view of his intense profile… She feasted on every handsome feature she could see.
He’s home. He’s with me. Last May, I held his beaten body. I watched the effects of poison slither through his veins. And I watched him struggle to survive. Now, his chest rises and falls. How unbelievable is this?
Brushing back his hair, Alana needed to glimpse more of her soul mate. When Michael walked into the bedroom last night, her stomach fluttered. Her soul quivered to the core. Devoted kisses had filled her heart. In a tentative tone he had whispered, “I don’t understand this,” and she had searched his chestnut eyes, simply replying, “Neither do I.”
Still full of questions, she felt certain he’d answer each one today. Her palm absorbed every mystifying beat of Michael’s heart. He’s a living, breathing man again… No. Not possible. Vampires don’t change…Every Guardian of Souls knows that’s a fact. Lesson 101…
