Stunning banner by the fabulously talented Moonlightlover60.
Welcome to Barely Breathing
Barely Breathing tells is a tale of love; of finding it and the struggle to hold on to it when walls separate us from our hearts desire.
Mick and Beth’s relationship changed drastically when she was turned and now new challenges will define their lives and their existence. How will their love overcome the tests that face them now? They’ve already met the challenges of difficult, dangerous and complicated but what if the challenge now was redefining all they know about being a vampire?
Josef and Lani have grown into a relationship that allows them both to trust the other and they now stand on the precipice of something great and beautiful; a love that could take them into forever together. But love can be fragile and when understanding only goes part of the way it’s easy for misunderstanding to take over.
I hope you will all enjoy this story. We’ll see much more of Dorothy and Clark, Logan and Audrey and our other characters. Heroku has many secrets, many of which will impact Beth’s life; Tango and Josef share a connection from their pasts that has defined both men and together they will fight for the future as evil tries to destroy the existence of vampires.
Many thanks to Moonlightlover60 for the stunning new banner and the visual enhancements and contributions to the story. She worked hard on all the cast pictures and so many others for the story. Lynn, you are incredible!
