Colony Agent Sulie Metcalf, the President’s private physician, has been in love with the same human man for nearly thirty years. She refuses to allow herself the joy of true love because her feelings are unrequited by her human boss, Jonathan Dixon. As Dixon’s retirement looms near, and his memories of Sulie and the last thirty years of his life are about to be erased, does she confront her fear of intimacy and take a leap of faith before it’s too late?
Dixon has decided to retire and enjoy what time he has left. When his best friend Sulie, a vampire team member, is kidnapped during a medical emergency, Dixon realizes that retirement means giving up everything, and everyone, he’s known for the last three decades. Will he risk his life, and his heart, to save her?
Dixon and Sulie have loved each other for quite a while now. Both, though, are scared to tell the other how they feel; Sulie because she thinks Dixon wouldn't want to be with a vampire and Dixon because he thinks Sulie wouldn't want an older, wrinkled old human. Even though the entire Colony is aware of Sulie's love for Dixon, they've all agreed not to tell him. Sulie, however, become so despondent over thinking Dixon doesn't love her that she has Raymond, the head of their family and Sulie's brother, add her to a vampire matchmaking service in order to find her a husband so she can try to move on. That one act initiates a chain of events that nobody anticipates.
While the Colony is searching for Sulie, Kate (Sterling's wife) is in an accident and has their twins a few weeks early. Fortunately, both boys are fine. This may seem like an unrelated incident, but it's not. Kate's birthing the boys creates an element needed for the survival of someone important to the Colony.
Enduring Service is more action-packed than the other two Colony novels. The romance aspect is almost nil, which works well with this story. For this series, Enduring Service is the best of the three I've read so far. The reader is familiar with the Colony and each of its members' abilities and personalities by the time they read this novel. There are some dialogue issues that I have with this series, but overall is interesting enough to recommend to all you vampire romance lovers out there.
