She made him her fledging, a slave for her dark, evil purposes—hunting humans. After a few years she released him, and Nathan reluctantly learned to accept the cursed life she’d foisted upon him.
Over time he amassed a great fortune, which to

I love the story. It's a story of the heart with twists. The characters are engaging and I adored Mia. I held my breath for her and Nathan. Isabella, I wanted her to go away. But then that wouldn't make a great story... The story is rich with layers and layers of intrigue. The plot is just as thick. And even though this is a paranormal romance, the characters seem real as anyone. The story is worth your time. I enjoyed from the beginning. The author Lana Campbell knew how to draw you in and not ...more

Forever And A Night by Lana Campbell is a decent paranormal romance.

I enjoyed reading it because of the writing. Author's writing was really good; it flowed smoothly and made this book a surprisingly quick read given the total number of pages.

I did like the story too, but at more than a dozen places I found a lot of resemblance to the plots of other Vampire novels. I do enjoy good paranormal romance books, but while reading this book I couldn't stop myself from comparing to the other books in th

I love paranormal books but this was far above anything that I have read before. This is a vampire paranormal that has a mixture of romance, mystery, and suspense and keeps you enthralled from the start. This is an amazing start to a fantastic series. Mia and Nathan come together unexpectedly and each tries to fight their feelings for the other because secrets that are kept can cause the end of what they have. Mia cares for Nathan but sometimes things just might not be meant to be or do they? Th ...more

So, I have just finished "Forever and a Night," and I am so glad to have discovered Lana Campbell! I read her other book recently and thoroughly enjoyed it and I loved this one as well. The author does a great job keeping the pace going- I didn't want to put it down and when I did, I was thinking of the story and thinking of the characters, like they were real! Which, I believe, is what a good book will make you do. I loved that Mia was a devout Christian, I liked that the author brought religio ...more

The book was short enough to finish in about three days, maybe two if you’re not super busy (21 chapters). A creative explanation about what defines a vampire and the myths surrounding the species. Instead of demons, in this book vampirism is merely an evolutionary disease of the blood (So that explanation leaves room for a possible cure to be discovered. Maybe Chelsie would find it in the future. Lol.) Mixes modern vampirism and Christian/Catholic faith. This book would be a great discussion on ...more

Truth be told, I haven't read a vampire romance in quite sometime. It's not that I don't enjoy them but if 'you've read one you've read them all.' Right? Well, so not the case with Forever and a Night. I loved how the author changed my notion about vampires by creating believable characters who still possessed special powers. But, instead of brutally feeding from their victims they actually fed intravenously. Which was the total opposite of a feral vampire who would rip your throat out and leave ...more

This was a first for me by this author. A definite page turner. The story was well written and the characters were relatable. Nathan and Mia will pull at your heart strings. If you enjoy romance, action, comedy and drama. Then this is the book for you.

Although I don’t usually follow this genre, I decided to give this one a try, and I found that I liked it. I’m sure that has a lot to do with the author’s skill. The book was easy to sink into (no pun intended) and kept my attention from beginning to finish. All of the characters were compelling, and I found myself caught up in their stories and lives. The world of the vampire was made totally understandable and believable for me by the careful weaving of details throughout the storyline—which w ...more

This is a book I read in 3 days. It rained alot so I took advantage of the time. It is still with me. I feel like I'm a part of this circle. I definitely want more. I was drawn in the first chapter and reread the first 2 to wrap my head around it. Sensational writing, captivating, beautiful love story. This book gets ten stars from me. Can't wait for the next book to come out. Highly recommend this read! forever and a night by Lana Campbell

This is the first book that I have read from Lana Campbell, I love Vampire books and this is one that is different from others that I have read, this is bringing a different look to how Vampires are looked at in other books. We have a Vampire, Isabella Ravini who went and transformed Nathan Davenport into a vampire and kept him sorta on a leace to do as she wanted and also for her to feed from. Eventually she let him go and Nathan 100 years later made himself a billionaire and a name known throu ...more

Romance Between The Sheets
Forever and a Night has an interesting story line of faith and love. It also has a mix of evil and obsession.

Nathan is a vampire that wasn’t sure if he would ever meet his lifemate. He had given up on the fact that she might be out there. Watching his best friends, Julia and Dimitri, enjoy a life together made him wonder if he would ever find that happiness. Even after he meets his one, he is still not sure if he can convince her to spend a lifetime with him.

I received an ebook of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Lana Campbell!

I want to start off by saying that this book has good bones. It has the outline of a great story. The actions and events follow each other nicely, and coherently. So, no issue there.

Where it gets sticky with me is with the characters. I didn't connect with them at all. I just didn't care about what happened to them. I found them a little superficial and two dimensional; they lacked depth.

This was an interesting read for me.  Very much a paranormal read...also romance...but here is where I think I stumble a little.  Vampires...normally known as evil, souless...and Christianity.

I still don't know how to deal with the dichotomy of the two concepts.  It was good.  The story line was great...fantastic...fabulous.  But trying to wrap my head around the two meshing together in one story has me confused.

All of that aside, Lana Campbell did a great job with this story.  I was pulled in f

Vampire Romance

Forever and a Night introduced a new twist to traditional vampires. While Lana Campbell's vampires contain most elements of the usual vampires, she has made hers more human; where being a vampire is equal to having an incurable disease, allowing them to eat normal food as well as blood, to age but at a reduced rate and have the ability to become pregnant.

I enjoyed reading the novel and getting to know the characters. Mia was a bit back and forth for me, and felt a little too judg

Forever and a Night is the vampire novel for people who don't think they like vampire novels. Like everyone else I can't say enough about how amazing the writing and world building is. I think for me the best part is the fact that Campbell took the time to carefully craft and immerse us in the vampire culture to the point that it felt authentic. This is the only way to truly get into the story and this accounts for the fact that there were no jarring plot weak spots or gaping holes in the narrat ...more

I really enjoyed this book and am jumping right into the next book in the series. I really like this authors style and the flow of the story is wonderful.
This is the story of Mia and Nathan. Mia is your typical middle age good-hearted Christian woman. Shes been through hell and back with an ex that is a real bucket of worms all in his own. Then she gets caught in the cross-hairs of a feral vampire who has decided Mia is a means to an end.
Nathan has lived a long life and it was made even longer

When I sat down to read Forever and a Night by Lana Campbell I wasn’t sure what to expect. I will admit right here I am a huge Twilight fan and am often quite partial when it comes to other vampire stories. Be that as it may, I gave this a shot and I’m happy I did. I enjoyed the different take on the vampires and their rules. I found this story very entertaining and refreshingly well written. Lana’s characters are well developed and relatable. As I continued through the story my attention never ...more
This novel is gritty and super hot. Once you pick up the page, you are in for one big ride. From the very first page I was hooked on to the novel. I couldn't put it down. There is super awesome fangs and books like this are the reason why I love paranormal romance. I really liked how the entire novel was character driven. Nathan and Isabella are a great couple. I liked their scroching chemistry, but most importantly their complexity as characters. Both of them have made choices that are not all ...more

When Mia serves the famously rich, Nathan Davenport one night at the restaurant she works in, she immediately tags him as a playboy and doesn't want to get involved. Until he makes her an offer that he knows she can't refuse.
Nathan is only in town on business, and has never had any interest in feeding from the same woman twice, until he meets Mia. He is drawn to her and finds a way to keep her close, but what will happen when she learns he is a vampire?
