The Lockwood Chronicles Episode 1: A Chance Meeting by Katrina LaFond

“…Madeline could feel Alexander's body tense against her as the kiss deepened, and then his lips left hers, trailing down to the line of her throat. Madeline let her head fall back, losing herself in the feel of his mouth on her skin, his hands on her body. She heard him groan, a sound of need and frustration, and a shiver coursed through her body, her knees going weak. If it weren’t for his embrace, she was certain she would’ve melted into a puddle at his feet. His breath feathered across the skin at her throat as he nibbled gently, and her arms came up, cradling him to her. Then there was a sudden, white hot whip of pain, followed instantly by an all consuming, searing pleasure that made her cry out.

Alexander lost himself in her, in the taste of her blood, in the feel of her slender body, pliant in his arms. She surrounded him, consumed him, and he knew that, as strong as he was, as powerful as he’d become, she would forever rule him, would forever be able to command him with barely a whisper. He nearly forgot what he was doing, how close he was to taking her where she would not want to go yet, when he felt danger’s approach. His every nerve jangled in warning and he pulled away from her, a growl rumbling low in his throat. “Madeline,” he whispered huskily, “look at me.” She did so without question, meeting his molten blue eyes. “Sleep,” he commanded, and her world fell away into darkness…..”


When Madeline Connors stepped off the plane in London, she stepped into a whole new world--a dark and dangerous world that had only ever existed for her in books and movies. They met by accident-a moment's direction and she collided with Alexander Lockwood. One look into his crystal blue eyes and she was lost, in love before she even knew his name.

Tich's Review:

The Lockwood Chronicles are broken down into episodes which makes for a fun, fast read.  I am loving these shorter stories because I can sit down and read them in one sitting. A Chance Meeting is the beginning of The Lockwood story. Katrina LaFond wrote an excellent introduction when she wrote this episode.

Madeline is headed to London for vacation and as she is gathering her luggage in the airport she runs into Alexander Lockwood. Against her better judgement she accepts a dinner date with him. What she doesn't know is that this could open the door to a dark and dangerous world, something that she has only read about in novels.

The moment Alexander looks into Madeline's eyes he knows that she is special. He knows that bringing her into his world is dangerous but he can't seem to stop himself from asking her out to dinner.

If you are looking for a great romance written in short story format then look no further. I cannot wait to read episode two!
