A mythic warrior who'll stop at nothing to possess her . . .
After enduring years of torture from the vampire horde, Lachlain MacRieve, leader of the Lykae Clan, is enraged to find the predestined mate he's waited millennia for is a vampire. Or partly one. This Emmaline is a small, ethereal half Valkyrie/half vampire, who somehow begins to soothe the fury burning within him.
A vampire captured by her wildest fantasy . . .
Sheltered Emmaline Troy finally sets out to uncover the truth about her deceased parents -- until a powerful Lykae claims her as his mate and forces her back to his ancestral Scottish castle. There, her fear of the Lykae -- and their notorious dark desires -- ebbs as he begins a slow, wicked seduction to sate her own dark cravings.
An all-consuming desire . . .
Yet when an ancient evil from her past resurfaces, will their desire deepen into a love that can bring a proud warrior to his knees and turn a gentle beauty into the fighter she was born to be?
Includes an excerpt from Kresley Cole's next romance novel, No Rest for the Wicked.
There was no romance between the two main characters, just people who wanted to screw each other's brains out. I'm bored with female characters who are stunningly beautiful but have no idea they are. About 94% of the conflict in this book could
..." have been solved if people sat down and had an honest conversation with each other, but no, I guess the author thought it'd be more fun if everyone told dumb lies and jumped to extreme conclusions.
On the positive sides, I did enjoy the vampire/werewolf/valkyrie stuff. Kinda fun but completely squashed by the annoying characters and their actions.
