This was a distracting story, but maybe a bit too short ? The angle was original, a kind of vampire/lycan police to keep the supernatural world away from the humans, but the characters not really explored fully and the sex scenes were described too rapidly for my taste :p
You get the feeling that the author was writing and thinking "make it quick, make it quick !".

Très sympa comme lecture ! Un univers vampirien qui pourrait être qualifié de rébarbatif et pourtant, l'histoire est super sympa ! Une société secrète chargée de protéger les humains des surnat., mais avec des meurses un peu légères ! Un puissant vampire dont la mission est de récupérer et au besoin anéantir une jeune femme mi ange mi démon !
Un roman assez court, mais plaisant à lire, sans prise de tête et assez rythmé !
A lire !

Il fait visiblement partie d'une quadrilogie !

Du vampire, oui, mais pas que...
La couverture donne une bonne idée du type de créatures que nous allons trouvé mais j'ai été très surprise par la nature de Mara. Et je peux vous dire que c'est une belle surprise !
Mara est une jeune femme dont la vie n'a pas toujours été simple, surtout à cause de ses origines. Elle va faire la rencontre de Lucien qui est chargé de la protéger... d'elle-même.
Je ne peux pas trop en dire sans spoiler et vous ôter les points que j'ai aimé dans cette histoire. Donc.....more

A fast moving book but suspenseful and erotic too. Loved it.
This is sooo not PG 13

The story was good and interesting. Lucien and Mara were likeable characters but it was missing something. It may have been that the story was very short and you just missed the ultimate connection. It is good and I will read the others in the series.
Atractiva, con un clásico y seductor vampiro de lo más llamativo. Me dio mucha risa la burla hacia Twilight. La relación entre Lucien y Petra me recordó mucho a la de Acheron con Simi. Mara no me gusto, demasiado terca -_-
This novel was all sorts of cheesy. I'm serious, I could not keep a straight face. The book is basically all a diversion for sex, the other stuff doesn't really matter. It was kind of stupid.
La historia es buena, pero creo que le falto a la autora explotarla mas xD
Too painful to finish. Luckily it's short and I skipped a lot.
