Rise of the Fallen He’s an ancient vampire who’s ready to die . . . until a spunky exotic dancer risks her life to save him and becomes his reason to live.
As an ancient vampire, Micah has seen more tragedy than he can stomach. Restless and on a path to self-destruction, he’s ready for his suffering to end, so he seeks out a ruthless enemy who’s only too happy to kill him.
Samantha is on the run from her abusive ex, working as a dancer in a swanky gentleman’s club. One night after work she stumbles upon a group of thugs beating Micah to death and bravely charges into the fray, guns blazing, determined to save the handsome stranger.
In Sam, Micah finds a reason to live—and love—again. But now that she’s put a target on her back, he’ll have to take extreme measures to protect her. With her obsessive ex closing in and an enemy who will stop at nothing to exact revenge, are the odds stacked too heavily against Micah? Or will finding something worth fighting for be enough to give him the advantage?

NOTE: While this book and the majority of the series revolves around heterosexual relationships, there will be homosexual relationships explored in this book and this series. The author believes that love is love, and that love comes in all flavors and orientations, especially in the world of vampires. If this isn't your cup of tea, no harm no foul, but this isn't the series for you. I would rather you not buy the books than risk getting a bad review because you didn't like this particular flavor of sauce. But maybe you can try one of my other series, such as Strong Karma or Banger, which are exclusively heterosexual. Thank you.
What Readers Have to Say about Rise of the Fallen:
"It's been a long time since a series has snagged my attention as thoroughly as the Black Dagger Brotherhood did, but All the King's Men has that distractingly addictive potential and this first story in the series holds nothing back." -GraveTells
"RISE OF THE FALLEN left me breathless and begging for more. It's filled with tension, romance, conflict, and a cast of characters screaming to tell their own stories. Being a debut novel, I cannot believe how well written this book is." -LoveMyBooks
"This book really took me by surprise! I wasn't expecting to love it this much but I did and I'm so glad I've found this author! It's so refreshing to find a Vampire story that isn't so much like all of the others out there but Donya Lynne has succeeded in making this book original and quite entertaining!" -Book Lovin Mamas
"When you can engage a reader's interest in all the characters and have them wanting more of each, you have a winner…I loved how real the characters felt." -United By Books
Donya Lynne is the author of the award winning All the King's Men Series and a member of Romance Writers of America. Making her home in a wooded suburb north of Indianapolis with her husband, Donya has lived in Indiana most of her life and knew at a young age that she was destined to be a writer. She started writing poetry in grade school and won her first short story contest in fourth grade. In junior high, she began writing romantic stories for her friends, and by her sophomore year, she’d been dubbed Most Likely to Become a Romance Novelist. In 2012, she made that dream come true by publishing her first two novels and a novella. Her work has earned her two IPPYs, one gold and one silver, as well as two eLit Awards, also one gold and one silver. When she’s not writing, she can be found cheering on the Indianapolis Colts or doing the bidding of her cats, Sophie and Bruiser.
