warrior vampireThe vampire was built for sin, every inch of him tight and bulky with corded muscle. A killer, that much was apparent, and she couldn’t help but wonder if his appetite for violence would rival his appetites for other…things.


Naya Morales is no ordinary mortal. Born with a shaman’s power, she has devoted her life to tracking down stolen magic—and punishing those who take it. But one fateful night, she follows the alluring call of a sensual magic that is too glorious to be true—and finds herself face to face with a stunningly handsome thief who is too magnificent to resist…


From the moment he sees her, Ronan knows Naya is his mate. Driven by a deep, almost mystical connection, he aches for her body, hungers for her blood, and swears their souls are anchored together. Naya refuses to believe the words of a vampire—or risk the wrath of her tribe. But when she tries to make Ronan her prisoner, neither chains of silver nor fires of hell can help her escape the truth: she is the one who’s been captured…


Although the last book left me wanting more, I thought that I wanted more of Claire and Michael.  I wasn’t sure that I wanted to read about Ronan.  I was wrong.

This volume has a completely different tone to the first book.  Tension, wariness and frustration bleed through Naya’s parts of the tale, whereas Ronan is confusion, restrained violence and lust.  Combined, the reader is treated to a really entertaining and sexy relationship.

And it’s not just about Naya and Ronan getting to know each other – the underlying story line is interesting and fast paced, and keeps the reader’s attention to the last page.

Overall, although for me, the connection with the characters didn’t evoke as much of an emotional connection as the first book, this was, nevertheless, a spicy, action packed novel. I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I await the next one with interest.
