Velvet A Swoon Novel by Temple West


Velvet A Swoon Novel by Temple West

Temple West's steamy vampire romance, Velvet, is part of the Swoon Reads YA imprint. After losing both her parents before the age of seventeen, aspiring designer Caitlin feels like her whole world has been turned upside down, and that was before the terrifying encounter with a supernatural force. Then she learns that her hot bad-boy neighbour, Adrian - who might have just saved her life - is actually a half-demon vampire. Suddenly Caitlin is stuck with a vampire bodyguard who feels that the best way to protect her is to become her pretend boyfriend. Trouble is, Caitlin is starting to fall in love for real, while Adrian can never love a human. Caitlin trusts Adrian to keep her safe from his demon father, but will he be able to protect her heart?

Temple currently lives in Seattle, USA.
