A desperate situation necessitates Luke Shelton to take desperate actions. With no other options available, Luke agrees to become a gift to the vampire Bussoe. Luke’s only hope is that he survives the encounter long enough to see that his family is safe and healthy.

Claimed is an intriguing blend of heartwarming and comical romance. The short story details an overview of Bussoe’s history, a touch of conflict, sizzling intimacy and amusingly vexing secondary characters. The characters are creditable.  Luke’s family is part of the honest but working poor society. Luke has good intentions without the resources to remedy his family’s dilemma. Bussoe has a justified rebellious nature hiding an empathetic heart. However, after living for centuries, life has become boring for Bussoe until he meets Luke. Bussoe instantly knew Luke is more than merely a food source. Luke also realized there is something special between him and Bussoe.

Jambrea Jo Jones has created a fantastic as well as enjoyable saga with the potential for a sequel in the future.
