REVIEW – One Immortal by Tia Louise



Melissa is a vampire; Derek is a vampire hunter.

When beautiful, sad Melissa Jones flees to New Orleans with her telepathic best friend, she is looking for a cure–not an erotic encounter with a sexy former Marine.

Derek Alexander left the military intending to become a private investigator, but with two powerful shifters as partners and an immunity to vampire glamour, he instead rose to the top in paranormal justice.

At a bar on Bourbon Street, Derek and Melissa cross paths, and their sexual chemistry is off the charts. Acting on their feelings, they are pulled deeper into an affair, but Melissa is hiding, hoping to escape her cruel maker.

It doesn’t take long before the shifters uncover her secret. Still, Derek is determined to confront the Old One and reclaim her mortality–even at the risk of losing his.

A STANDALONE PARANORMAL ROMANCE with an HEA based on characters from the One to Hold series. Contains voluptuous vampires, alluring alpha military heroes, scorching-hot shifters, beguiling witches, and panty-melting sexy times. Keep the fans nearby… Readers 18 and older only, please.

Derek Alexander is a former marine with police training who owns a company called Alexander Knight LLC with his two best friends Stuart & Patrick Knight. For appearances they are private investigators, but on the side they are paranormal detectives specializing in vampires. Vampire hunting is personal to Derek after a vampire took the life of someone he loved. For years Derek & the Knight brothers have been searching for a vampire they refer to as the old one. Their search has brought them back to Derek’s hometown in New Orleans.


While in New Orleans Derek crosses paths with a beautiful woman named Melissa. He gets side tracked from his mission when he becomes drawn to this stunning stranger & can’t get enough of her. He has no idea the woman he is spending time with is the very thing he’s dedicated his life to destroying.


Melissa is a woman who was forced to become a vampire. Derek should be her enemy, but her body craves him, & her heart is falling for him. She considers him her last indulgence before she will accept her grim fate, but when Derek finds out what she is, he vows to save her. Melissa feels safe with him, & he becomes her hero. She trusts him, & they feel bonded through their mutual need for justice. They are surrounded by danger, but they continue to grow closer & more connected. They really share something special together.


-How is it possible I’ve met this man now, at the darkest point in my life?

-I’ve never felt this way with a man.

-His blood is in my heart making me burn for him.

-I’ve never felt so wanted, so craved.

-Derek…my Derek…so strong…my fighter…my hunter…


This paranormal, supernatural romance had it all! From sexy vampires, to hot military alpha men, shifters, witches, & telepaths. Everyone seemed to have various powers and gifts. As usual Derek was protective , loving, HOT, & totally swoon worthy. Throw in the vamp stuff to this already explosive couple & it’s a recipe for one smoking hot story! Also loved we get plenty of Patrick & Elaine and Stuart & Mariska! All my fav couples in one book! Perfection! 😀


-“You want to bite me?”

-Melissa. Every fiber of my being longs for her.

-I want to live with him in the light.

-I want to be his everything.

I never want him out of my sight. I want him to be a part of me always. Mine.

This was one SERIOUSLY HAWT read!!
I have never read a Tia Louise book before but rest assured, once I get through my ARCs I have on schedule, I will be reading more from this series!!


Melissa is a beautiful young woman who was recently turned into a hybrid against her will, by an evil vampire. She won’t become a full fledged vampire until she makes her first kill. She’s desperate to break free from her curse and from the evil one who binds her to it. Melissa goes to New Orleans with her friend in hopes of finding a cure from a local witch.

Derek Alexander, along with his business partners, are in search of the vampire who killed his wife years ago. Their intel has led them to New Orleans. On his first night in town, he ends up in a bar where he sees the most beautiful but sad woman he’s ever laid eyes upon. Their attraction is instant and freaking COMBUSTIBLE!!! They are so turned on that they don’t even make it back to the hotel room to get their freak on. These two end up banging in a dark alley way. HOLY CRAP, I was all kinds of turned on by these two!!

I had to stop and splash myself with cold water a few times. I do enjoy a good paranormal romance from time to time and I forgot just how incredibly erotic Vampire sex can be! SHAME ON ME!!

During the latter half of the book a twist develops that threatens to end the relationship that was starting to grow between Derek and Melissa. I kind of wish that didn’t happen but overall this was a very enjoyable read for me. I would say that if you have a significant other, they are probably going to get lucky after you read this one because there is no way you won’t be turned on by this story!!
