About The Book

When a vampire finds his soulmate, the bond is forever. It’s love at first sight. 

Or is it?

Homicide Detective Jonas Forge has been a vampire for centuries. He’s fought wars, seen life go from the simple colonial days to the modern high-tech world. He’s evolved with the times, adapted to each new era, blended into each new life. The one constant is his best friend, mentor, and lover, Declan. Even though not fated to bond as soulmates, Forge and Declan are happy and settled in their life together.

Until Forge’s real soulmate falls, literally, into his life.

Forge isn’t thrilled with the guy, despite the pheromones attracting them to each other, and the feeling seems mutual. While trying to adjust to his clumsy soulmate and equally awkward feelings, Forge is also on the hunt for a serial-killer witnesses can’t identify who’s leaving a trail of bodies in its wake.

Will the bond Forge is finally forming with his soulmate be destroyed when the hunter becomes the victim?

If you like fated mates who aren’t perfect for each other, a paranormal killer who might not be caught and found families then you’ll love Elizabeth Noble’s Electric Candle.

The Review

We’re once again reunited with all the characters we met in Shades of Sepia (The Sleepless City Book One). Simon and Ben are living happily together, Lucas is still irritating and Forge is in a very bad spot and trying to keep it together because he has no doubt that his soulmate is near.

Young people are showing up dead and killed in a very bizarre and vicous way so Forge and Lucas are once again after a killer or killers. At the latest crime scene, Forge sees a man running and knows immediately it is his soulmate, so he goes running after him – a man in goggles dressed in a wannabe superhero outfit and falling into the lake and almost drowning. 

His soulmate is a vampire but seems to have gotten his vampire info from books because he is convinced that if he removes the goggles he will go blind. He warns Forge to stay away from him because he is dangerous, and has no idea that Forge is a vampire also. Forge’s first thought – would any one blame him if he killed his soulmate? But a vampire has no control of his hormones when he is near the one meant for him.

For centuries, Declan has been Forge’s lover, best friend and mentor, and he knows that they are not soulmates but he loves him and doesn’t want a soulmate, especially a clumsy new vampire with no idea of how to be one.

And as if things aren’t strange enough already, when the goggles are removed, his soulmate is none other than Blair the hacker who has worked with them for five years, but only through the internet. Blair was drawn to where Forge without having any idea why.

I have to admit that I fell in love with Blair as soon as he arrived on the scene. He is loving, smart and clueless. Forge has no choice but to bond with Blair, and Blair is well aware of the fact that Forge loves Declan. How is that going to work?

Declan tries to convince Forge that we’re all capable of loving more than one person, but Blair and Forge have an uphill battle to their HEA.

The mystery of who is doing the killing is full of violence and suspense, and is an intregal part of the story in addition to Blair and Forge’s maybe relationship. I love the characters in these books, and highly recommend reading them in order since the characters all appear in each one, giving the reader an update as to what is going on in their lives.

Five stars.
