I loved the Surrender Trilogy by this author and went straight from that to this series.
I found this one to be very slow moving and almost stopped at 30%, but I struggled though to the end. The combination of vampires, the Amish and the "calling" sounded better in the blurb. On the fence about reading the next in the series.

There are three things that drew me to this novel: erotic, vampires and Amish. This is one mixture I never saw coming.

In this new take on vampires, they live in a closed society. They rebuff all the conveniences of the modern world and live solely unto themselves. They grow and raise all their own food and live a quiet life that encompasses family and friends. When a true mate calling occurs, a vampire must listen. If they don’t, they

Amish vampyres, Wow, never thought I would be typing that. LOL. After reading the blurb I just HAD to check out Called to Order. And it was actually pretty darn awesome!
While the popular "find your destined mate or be destroyed' plot comes into play the rest of the story is very unique.
Evil, millionaire, playboy vampires? NOPE. Not going to find them here.
Adam's character is the epitome of everything good and honorable...... if you can forgive a little kidnapping. LOL. Our heroine, Anna, is a

There was an almost poetic element to Ms. Michael’s writing that turned this story into a living, breathing, thing. I was sucked in with that first lyrical sentence. I could taste the honeysuckle dancing along my tongue, and feel the pleasure quivering in my belly. Her ability to seduce your senses aside, her ideals were mind blowing. I’m a supernatural buff. I’ve loved all things that go bump in the night since I was a little girl. So, there aren’t many w

I’m fairly new to vampires–Dracula and the twilight series are it–but this might be the book to convert me. It grabbed me from the first page and wouldn’t let go until the end. Lydia Michaels write beautifully–she creates wonderful images of the farms of Pennsylvania and the life of the Amish, then somehow manages to put in an unlikely vampire order in the middle that is totally believable. Adam the hero is very much the gentle hunk of many romance novels but the vampire edge (which becomes real

I stumbled across this book on accident and I am so glad I did. Called to Order is an awesome story about a modern girl, Anna, who is destined to be with a vampire, Adam. However, the vampire is from an Amish Order. That is how they keep their existence secret. There are so many original and clever elements to this story I am not even sure what to list first. For one, it reads almost like a time travel book. When the characters are out and about in the modern world Called to Order is a contempor ...more

Book Blurb:

Isolated in the quiet hills of Pennsylvania is an Amish order unlike any other—they are vampyre.

Adam Hartzler has always been an honorable immortal, but when he is called to his true mate the line between right and wrong begins to blur. If he does not find her soon he will lose his soul and die. The longer he waits the less he is in control. With only his dreams to guide him, Adam sets out on a journey to claim his mate and return home with her before it is too late.

This book had everything a great read should! It was fun, sexy, interesting, the characters were written so that one could not help but fall in love with them. I really enjoyed it! Adam was the perfect hero and Anna was the perfect balance of independence and damsel in distress. The Amish take on their existence was fascinating and very clever. Ms. Michaels seems to be a new talent I have no doubt we will be seeing much, much more of in the future!

Not my favorite by this author, it was just kind of boring for it being paranormal. I still love her writing style though :)
