ABOUT THE BOOK

An unwilling victim of an experiment gone wrong, mother to a child that shouldn’t exist, Eden Lavery knows only one person strong enough to stand between the Coalition’s fanatical quest for immortality and their threat to her daughter; Dusan Knight. Six foot three of solid muscle, Deuce wears his power with the easy confidence that comes from six centuries of commanding the Chosen, the inspiration for vampire lore. But Deuce isn’t just the source of legend. He’s the man she loves. The man she’d ultimately betrayed.

From the moment Eden reenters his life, holding the miracle of a Chosen child in her arms, Deuce burns with the need to complete their joining. Everything about Eden, from her sassy sense of humor to her delectably stacked body was made for him. But some things are easier decided than done. Amidst a race for survival, against an enemy that cannot be destroyed for fear of extinction, Deuce must fight for the future of his people and to convince Eden the passion between them is more than illusion. She is his Chosen mate, and nothing, not her fears, the Coalition, nor death itself will take her away from him.

JERR
"This extremely fast-paced story set my blood on fire with the relationship struggle between Dusan and Eden. The intricate connection between the Chosen and their shifter relatives, the Others, glued me to the pages. The elaborate traditions and dominant stance of the men kept me intrigued throughout the story. But most of all, I loved Eden. .... She is so realistic that I imagine I would be the same if I was in a similar situation. I also loved how she remained her own individual even when faced with Dusan’s dominant personality. Where he wanted her to bend to his will, she weighed what it would mean to their relationship in the end; she wouldn’t accept any disrespect and I adored her for it. Dusan comes across as a strong man who has a need to see Eden’s submission. He fights with his nature, which is so deliciously yummy that his demands were enrapturing. ... Unlike other novels I have read recently, I found myself truly enjoying the supporting characters in Conception. Their emotional connection to the story has left me waiting expectantly for a sequel. Overall, this quick paced and exciting story has pulled me into yet another exciting series by the fabulous Ms. McCarty. As always, this author hits the spot!" —Francesca

THE ROMANCE STUDIO
"Any time a story can take me from emotional highs and lows, I know it's an outstanding book and Conception certainly fits the bill. I was rooting for the characters the whole way... All the characters, whether secondary or first, come to life under Sarah McCarty's skilled writing and I had no problem giving this book a five heart rating. I only wish that I didn't have to wait for the next one!"

ENCHANTED IN ROMANCE
"This novel is created with passion, deep depth and wonderful characters. I couldn't get enough of this story. If you enjoy a vampire story that differs from the rest, do get this book." —Anita

ROMANCE READERS CONNECTION
"Sarah McCarty is one very talented author who writes an incredible story. CONCEPTION is the first story of an alternative Earth of Vampires (Chosen) and Werepeople (Others). These paranormal people are secretive and self contained. Eden is the granddaughter of a brilliant and ruthless human, who will stop at nothing to gain/steal the elusive prize of immortality that these beings possess. Eden holds just the right amount of spunk and backbone, but not in an over done tone. While Dusan is overbearing and is difficult for her to handle, handle him she does. It is fascinating to see these two, and their completely different backgrounds, deal with each other. It is a brilliantly choreographed dance. ... The whole story is masterfully written to keep the reader entertained and interested. Excellent book!" —Sarah Silversmith

ROMANCE JUNKIES
"CONCEPTION is an awesome book that readers won’t put down until they finish it. Deuce is dark, sexy, dangerous, and a complete alpha male who will do anything to protect his family. Sarah McCarty has done a stellar job at combining suspense and romance with a passionate edge that readers will love. I can only hope this is the start of a series and there will be more to come." —Angel

JOYFULLY REVIEWED
"I thoroughly enjoyed Conception and found the story fascinating.... Conception is a very intense, complex, and arousing book. Moments of tenderness, drama, action, and passion all combine to make it impossible to put Conception down. The secondary characters are also intriguing. As with all of her books, Sarah McCarty's love scenes are more than just sex, they are an experience in lovemaking. I felt sated and exhausted after reading Conception. I very much recommend this book, and look forward to the rest of the Others series." —Nanette
