Emma Christensen has no inkling attending her senior prom would be a life-changing event. When she wakes the morning after, her body aches, her mind can’t focus, and none of her mom’s home remedies stall the pain. After several restless days, she’s able to attend school again. However, lunch with a friend throws more agony her way. She’s been changed… changed into a vampire.
Ten years later, Emma returns to Indianapolis after promising her once best friend she’d accompany her to their tenth high school reunion. Her reason is two-fold: visit her parents, whom she’s distanced herself from, and find out who made her into the blood-sucking creature so he can restore her humanity.
Zach Matthews, former basketball player and the once love of Emma’s life, returns for the reunion with one goal in mind: tell the creature he created she’s meant to spend her existence with him as his life-mate. The road the two traverses creates more pitfalls when Zach’s maker, Francisco Navarre, demands Zach complete the transition by coupling with the young vampire. Zach’s reluctance spurs the Spaniard to kidnap Emma to force himself on her.
Will Emma escapes Francisco’s clutches before he fouls her? And, even if she does, will she and Zach be on the run from the ruthless leader for eternity? But, more importantly, is there anyone in the world who has the ability to grant her one request?
Received my first round of edits last weekend. I'm hard at work completing the necessary changes. I'm hopeful I'll be able to send my MS back by Monday. Then, it's a waiting game again! It's closer, though...
It's here! The new cover is complete and I love it. Tell me what you think! I'd love to hear your thoughts, too.
If escape is a reason for reading, "Change Me Back" is the vehicle. Lynne Anders' first paranormal book brings new life to the vampire genre. You’ll recognize legendary characteristics, but there are plenty of updates and accommodations to modern life that make the story fresh.
Once "changed" by Zach at her senior prom, Emma, now undead, is on a mission to regain her mortal self. Her mission is challenged by her attraction - rather, addiction - to Zach and countered by an evil ancient whose designs and desires thwart both the mission and the addiction. The action starts immediately and moves - erratically, erotically, enthrallingly - to an ending that explodes in a force of nature, plot twists and, ultimately, fulfillment.

What an exciting love story. I can’t remember reading a story that kept me on the edge of my seat as this one did, anxious to turn the page to see what happened next. I also enjoyed the way Lynne told the story from each character’s point of view. It brought added life to the main characters.
Is it possible vampires really live? After reading this story, what will you believe? I now look at people differently wondering if they are really who or what they appear to be.

Lynne is brilliant in her first foray into the paranormal world with this portrayal of vampires. “Change Me Back” brought out emotions that surprised me. It is a unique love story about giving, protection, and eternal love. Now if I see someone in a restaurant ordering a rare steak, I may wonder… are they?

“Change Me Back” is an exhilarating vampire story complete with villainy, betrayal, and love. One wonders if Zack, because of his hope for the future, will choose to become the circle leader or leave it to others? Will Emma remain a vampire or leave the immortal world to reestablish contact with her human family? This story will keep you guessing. I highly recommend this great read.
