I read this book in one day because I couldn’t put it down. Of the three books in the series, this is my favorite. Dixon and Sulie played prominent parts in the first two books and I’m glad Regina gave them their own story. I like that she cleared up a number of questions raised in the two previous books about family history. As a writer myself, I am blown away at her creativity in the “vampire” genre and how she makes her characters “human.” I look forward to the next book in the series.

Sulie has been in love with Dixon for as long as she can remember. She is terrified of his retiring and losing him forever. Dixon has always had feelings for Sulie but always thought of himself as unworthy because of the fact that he is human and she is immortal. Neither one knows of the other’s true feelings. Just when Sulie gathers the courage to tell Dixon how she feels she is kidnapped. Dixon goes out of his mind trying to find her with the help of her family. They constantly run into road b ...more

I recevied this from the author for an honest review.

WOW!! Another awesome book in the series. I have to admit I was really excited to read Sulie and Dixon's story. We have seen them both loving each other from the begining of the series so this was the icing on the cake so to speak.

So Sulie is sad to know that in a few days her beloved Dixon will retire from the government and be lost to her forever.

I was so happy to get Sulie’s story. She was seeing everyone get their happy ever after... Literally.
I have said it before but I love the whole idea of these vampires who are able to “age” by the amount of blood consumption.
Sulie does love someone, it is just he doesn’t know it. It why she took the position she has with the agency. So she could be close to him. The problem is he is human and he is getting ready to retire from his position with the agency.
Agent Dixon is getting nervous about ret

Enduring Service is book 3 in the Colony vampire series.....and is by far my favorite story!! I've been anticipating this book for months.

The story centers around Colony member vampire Sulie and Dixon the human Director soon to be retired. Both have been pining for the other for the past thirty years. Each afraid to admit to the other that they are madly in love with one another. When Sulie is kidnapped by rogue vampires, Dixon is determined to do anything and everything to rescue the love of hi

Oh my gosh!!! I have read the other books in this series, but I can say with complete honesty that this book is the best out of the series! I enjoyed this book so much that I have re-read it a couple times since my first time reading it.
In the other books in the series, we are told a little bit about Dixon and Sulie. And I can say that I really didn’t expect this book to happen with the two of them together, but it is insane that it did happen! I enjoyed watching the back and forth between them

*Copy gifted from the author in exchange for an honest review

I like it! Sweet and action packed all rolled into one...

Dixon has always had a thing for Sulie, but because of their age difference and the fact that he's only a human, he's never pursued it.

Sulie has been in love with Dixon for as long as she can remember, the only problem, he's human. Terrified of losing him and him never remembering her after he retires from the President's in

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

This was a wonderfully well written book of love and Suspense. Sulie is part of a vampire sect that watches over the president, and Dixion is her human boss whom she has loved for thirty years and is nearing retirement. Suddenly Sulie is kidnapped and the whole team goes into action to save her. You'll sit on the edge of your seat with your heart racing, unable to put this book down. Ms. Morris is wonderfully descriptive, pulling you into the story as if you are truly there. Her plot line is awe ...more

Emotionally gripping, heart pounding action, thrilling mystery and makes you reread what you just read (just to make sure) twits and turns. So entertaining I could not put it down.

Colony Agent Sulie Metcalf is sexy, smart and so head over heals in love with her human boss, she would do anything for him (except confess her feelings out loud) including give her immortal life. Jonathan Dixon is sweet, caring, sexy and so crazy about his best friend. Unwilling to go out on a limb and possibly lose

Vampire's do exist...and this group of good guys help protect the President of the United States. In this book Sulie is a female vampire and with her brother and other vamps are the group that do it. The human side of it is Dixon . Together they work side by side and for 30 year's those two have cared for each other but haven't said a word about it to anyone....problems arise and stuff hits the fan! What a good storyline this is and great characters. Really enjoyed this.

I got this book in exchange for a review. This book is about a covert team of vampires who protect the U.S. President. Jonathan Dixon, a human, is in charge of the unit. He is in love with Sulie Metcalf, the president's private physician, also part of the unit. When other vampire's go after the president, will they all survive ? Will Dixon ever let Sulie know he loves her?This book involves espionage, danger, and death . It's well written and makes the reader glad to be a part of the team.

I really liked this book but I truly enjoy paranormal books. This is a romance book about vampires and humans. Some of the president's guards are vampires and this is about their lives.

Since I happen to like this type of book I enjoyed it immensely. Please give it a try.

Taken by strangers, held without food Sulie is slowly dying. Her family is struggling to find any leads to her whereabouts. Evil from her past has come to wreck havoc in her family's lives. Love shines through when all looks lost.

A very engrossing and unique story! The characters are sympathetically savage and you are immersed in a world so familiar yet so totally foreign that each turn of the page is a journey into surprise and unexpected realism! I really enjoyed it.

I reviewed this book for Rising Indies United.

This is Sulie's story and it's a great read. Sulie is Raymond's sister, and also the personal doctor to the President because of her unique ability. She can tell all about your health by just a touch or taste of your blood. She has been in love with Dixon for a very long time, but has always been too scared to tell him, because she doesn't think that he loves her back. And she wouldn't want to ruin that friendship.

Time is running out though. Dixon

Just finished this book, third in the series. Loved it, loved it, loved it. Wow, what a page turner. I've been enjoying this series since told about it by my sister. The characters are great. This has humor, romance, action, everything a good read should have. The whole concept of vampires protecting the President is an intriguing idea. I hope many more are written in the series. Regina knows how to keep you glued to the pages to see what happens next. This book is about Sulie and the soon-to-be ...more

Great book. Very exciting and so much fun to read. It has excitement, fun, is hot,hot,hot. Suspenseful and a page turner. This is my first in the series I have read. I am going to go back and read the other two. I highly recommend it. I was given this review copy and I voluntarily review it.

Great Story

I love PNR, and vampire stories are one of my favorite. They have so many variations they can take. This was a great story, and I like the fact that it's based on secret service type agents, but the stuff they do isn't really centered around the president. I found it interesting and engaging. I definitely plan to continue the series.

This is a series that I definitely plan to follow. Murder, intrigue, mystery, whatever you want is all right there in these pages. Although, I do still have to wonder if there will be or were repercussions because of Sulie and Dixon. Can't wait to read the next one!

The was a little different than I expected but a very good book. I enjoyed the suspense, the romance, and the different twist on the vampire rules. I look forward to reading more from this author and this series.

I love paranormal romances featuring vampires, but my personal taste is light-hearted and humorous – not horrific and gory.
