Tired of the thin-blooded aristocrats in 1815 London, Alexius yearns for better sport. He is drawn to a dark-haired seductress who shows no fear and refuses to obey his commands. Entranced by such novelty, he denies his bloodlust and decides to keep her to warm his bed.

Immortal vampire hunter Morana has never mistaken her prey before, but the dark stranger mesmerizes her, enticing her to forget everything but the dangerous pleasure she finds in his arms.

Neither one can deny the pull of the other, but there is something beyond the lust—a recognition neither can put a name to. The past and present collide and unless they discover the truth behind the lies, Death will triumph once more.


Review: I just want to say the the cover of this book is awesome. It might be a little too much for some people. This book was great. I will warn you that there is a little BDSM in this book. If you don’t like your books hot and spicy, then don’t read it.

The author did a great job with this story. I was hooked until I reached the end. You get to see inside the characters in depth. Alexius is a vampire that has been searching for his true love. She died the night that he was turned without his permission. He tried to protect his wife, but when he got home it was too late. He knows he will never find another like her. That is until he meets Morana. There is just something that draws him to her.

Morana made a deal with death to find the one that killed her brother.  She vows to kill every vampire she sees until she finds the killer. She has a partner in crime, Thanatos who helps her draw the vampires to them. When she sees a man coming towards her and she gives into her lust, he changes something inside her that will never be the same.

This is a book I could read over and over again. Just to see the passion between these two. You wonder how in the world they could have such a huge connection with each other.  I never thought I would see a vampire and maiden of death get together.

I just wish that the author had added a little more to the story. I wanted to see what happened to Thanatos. Maybe there will be a book about him later. I have to say that this is the first time that I have read a book by this author and I picked such a great one to start out with.
