“Enduring Service” is the third book in Regina Morris‘ Colony Series. This series is a Paranormal Romance, with Vampires, so you guys know I would go crazy for that.
I got the eCopy of the book in exchange for an honest review. That been said, here is the blurb:
Colony Agent Sulie Metcalf, the President’s private physician, has been in love with the same human man for nearly thirty years. She refuses to allow herself the joy of true love because her feelings are unrequited by her human boss, Jonathan Dixon. As Dixon’s retirement looms near, and his memories of Sulie and the last thirty years of his life are about to be erased, does she confront her fear of intimacy and take a leap of faith before it’s too late?
Dixon has decided to retire and enjoy what time he has left. When Sulie is kidnapped during a medical emergency, Dixon realizes that retirement means giving up everything, and everyone, he’s known for the last three decades. Will he risk his life, and his heart, to save her?

Before the review, I would like to thank Regina for the book, and second, I have to say that this is the first book I’m reading of hers, and even though my mind goes a bit crazy if I don’t read the books in a series in order, I was taking a leap of faith because Regina said that this book would be a good book to jump into.
And hold and behold, she, of course, was right! I didn’t feel confused of feel like I wasn’t understanding the plot of the world. So you guys can jump into the series with this book too, it’s perfectly fine.
If you have seen some of my blog post and my Instagram page, you probably know by now that I love the Paranormal Romance genre and especially Vampire books. I love reading them and figure out, and really understand, what makes the vampires what and who they are. Every author has their own “thing” that they put in their vampires that makes them different from every single book and series about vampires. And that’s what really made me start writing my own vampire series.
I was curious to know about the vampires in this story, and the vampire society and characteristic and the vampirism (the drinking blood and all that) made sense too me. It had that particular thing that made this series different from the others I have read. Regina added something unique to her own vampire story and that’s really what made me excited while I was reading the book. That and the characters.
Talking about the characters… Sulie Metcalf is the main female character, she’s a doctor and a Colony Agent, and we know right from the start that she loves Jonathan Dixon, the Director of the COLONY, “the human liaison between the President and the vampire team who had protected all the presidents since Lincoln’s assassination”.
As we keep reading, we start to understand no only the world and Sulie, but also Dixon. I found myself liking him a lot, even finding him funny, and loving how Sulie cared for him.
First of all, Sulie is such an unusual name for me, but it gives her such an interesting aura and I love it. Second, Dixon is a cutie pie. That’s it! You guys really have to go read the book so you can understand why.
There was action and since it’s a series about a security team, of course the book had to go through some rollercoaster of action and “Oh no!” or “Hell, yes!” moments.
I liked how the story was written, I liked how you could feel empathy for the characters, and I loved the vampire aspects of the story. I’m curious to know more about the Vampire Council, because there’s something there that I need to explore. And I’m now very curious to read all the other books in this series, including the first two.
That been said, it may not be a surprise that I recommend this book, especially if you are a vampire lover, you have to give this series a shot if you haven’t already.
