This is the second book in the Enclave series, and the first story that I’ve read by Jessica Lee. I was able to read this story without feeling lost. It’s a paranormal romance about vampires who are willing to fight for what’s right including protecting humans, so it has a lot of fighting. I will definitely be reading the first book in the series and am looking forward to more of her books.

Arran MacLain was a member of the Enclave. A group of vampire warriors who have promised to protect humans

We knew from book one in the series that Arran and Elle had the spark for one another and in this book, which happens two years after the first ends we see the explosive coming together of Arran and Elle.

We knew Arran had protective feelings for Elle, so when he finds her in a dangerous bar looking for her missing sister he feels that he has no choice but to help her in order to keep her safe.

Both have issues in their past that hold them back from giving each other all of themselves, but with th

This is book two of the Enclave. For this of you who met and fell in love with Gabrielle and Arran in Undying Destiny you will absolutely love this novel.

We were first introduced to Gabrielle and Arran in Undying Destiny. That story was about Kenric, Emily, and the Enclave, this story is about Gabrielle and Arran. For the enjoyment of the series and to enjoy these characters it's best to read Undying Destiny before reading Undying Embrace.

Undying Embrace picks up two years after the end of Undyi

Who needs a hero? Is there one around? But what if the hero thinks he isn't a hero and fights with himself and his one burning desire as he does in going after a traitor and some really bad uglies in this delicious read.

This is the second book of this series and though I have not had the pleasure of reading the first book if the second is anything to go by it will be amazing .This story starts out with Gabrielle wanting to find out what happened to her sister Alexandria. During her search she runs into Aaron, here’s a little insight into these two main characters: Gabrielle is a strong spirited woman who has been thru many a tragedy that would make most people not just women want to give up on life but yet she ...more

Oh my another great read, Undying Destiny was excellent and this one is just as good. Another sexy, yummy vampire joining in the action with hot sex to boot. Kick ass Gabrielle and sexy Aran make a great couple. Cannot wait for the next installment in this great series.
A highly recommended read for all you vampire fans

Going into this book without reading the first in the series, I was lost for a moment or two, but as the story ramped up, the blanks began to fill themselves in without a problem. The Enclave is a society that tries to keep a hold on rouge DEAD's, vampires that love to kill without conscience. It is a needed organization in a world where you can go missing if a vampire decides he wants a snack. When Gabrielle's sister drops off the radar, she panics heading right into a nest of DEAD's. Arran and ...more

This is the second book in Jessica Lee's Enclave Series. These books can be read individually, but I recommend reading them in order to fully enjoy the story. This series is a sexy paranormal romance where vampires protect humanity against evil vampires that prey on humans. Arran and Gabrielle were in
Bitter sweet story.

I had read the previous book of this series and enjoyed it. I was excited to see this book was about Enclave warrior, Arron, who was featured in the first book and really drew my interest. This book covers his backstory and love interest with human, Elle, as well as dealing with the betrayal of his best friend Markus. I still don't understand the story between Arron and Markus, but am assuming it will be covered in a later book. The author did resolve the issues though betwee

Undying Embrace Jessica Lee.

I enjoyed the first book in this series, Undying Destiny, and was pleased to get this one for review. We met Arran in book one as working partner to Marcus, who betrayed the Enclave. He feels he should have noticed something was wrong with Marcus, so has left the Enclave and spent the last two years trying to track down and kill him along with Marguerite, the Master who lured him away, and is frankly a real nasty piece of work. Oh I do love a good Bad female :)

Love love loved this book!! I can not say enough good about it. It engaged me from the very beginning and I didn't read the first book in the series.

Elle and Aaran have been attracted to each other forever but, due to the fact she was attacked by a rogue makes her wig out at the thought of what Aaran

Gabrielle, a human, is looking for her sister Alexandria who's gone missing when she bumps into the one vampire who gets her hot and particularly bothered since he abandoned her so many years ago.

Arran, seeing Gabrielle again, is unnerved by the emotions he feels, bringing out his possessive and domineering side. He left her because he felt he wasn't good enough for her and he knew he never would be. He's a killer and a vampire. He wouldn't mess up her life. It didn't help things that his best f

Two years ago she was attacked by evil vampires who drain their victims dry, called the DEAD. She was saved by the Enclave vampire Arran MacLain, who is the one who stole her heart, and disappeared. The Enclave are a group of men and women vampires dedicated to wipe out the DEAD and the terror and death they s

I read this book without reading the first book in the series. It can be read as a stand alone. I got into the story, so I plan on going back and reading the 1st book since it definitely adds more depth to it.

Arran is an old vampire who doesn't have much self worth. He thinks he can never outrun the sins of his past. He'd been living with and serving the Enclave, defending humans against the DEAD (death euphoria addicts). When the DEAD stormed the Enclave's mansion, one of his fellow Enclave me

This is the second book in the series, I was not a fan of the first but this really was a step up!! I Loved Gabrielle and Arran!! Their story made me laugh, and cry and fan my face because it was ever so steamy!!

Really great story telling and wonderfully paced. There is so much going on a girl doesn't have time to get bored!! Loads of twists and turns, some expected, some surprising. Ms. Lee really does a wonderful job of crafting the characters. There are so many secondary characters to help ma

As usual, I didn't know that this was part of a series (you'd think the "A novel of the enclave" on the cover would clue me in, but noooo...then again I read on my phone, so the print's pretty tiny and easy to overlook). But that didn't stop me from enjoying the book. It pretty much can stand alone, although there was a lot of hatred and anger aimed at one of the villains of the piece that I didn't entirely understand, though the villain's actions for this book certainly deserved anger.

Undying Embrace was a great book. The chemistry between Arran and Gabrielle is strong but in the end the chemistry is what saves them in the end.
Gabrielle is trying to find her sister that has gone missing and Arran is looking for the vampire that betrayed them all.
When Gabrielle is taken by the same vampire that kidnapped her sister, Arran does everything he can to get her back.
Once Arran gets Gabrielle back he doesn't let her out of his sight.

“Why do those hard choices in life—you know, the ones you make because they're the right damn thing to do—always feel like you've just been kicked in the balls?

Dark Desires at Midnight - Arran”
“Elle had never felt so cherished, so wanted. How in the world a simple kiss could relay such feeling, she'd never know. But kissing him was anything but simple. It was profound. And somehow, she knew when this night was over, her very soul would never be the same.” 1 likes
