When Adina Carr is stranded in London by her ungrateful, not to mention philandering ex-boyfriend, she is about to call it quits and head back home to New York City with her tail between her legs, but through a bout of serendipity things are about to get a whole lot more interesting—and dangerous.

Okay. I confess, this is one of the best vamp series I have read. The plot is well conceived and the characters interesting. I gave the book one star because the ending pissed me off. It is one thing to write a book with a cliff hanger but the level of incompleteness of this ending made me want to throw my Kindle. Had I known the writer would need to take a nap for some undisclosed period of time, I would have waited to read it. Many series have cliff hangers like JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherh ...more

This was a good book. Probably would be a Five star if it were completed. Since I only seem to read half a book, I am only giving 3 stars. I am so p'd at the way this ended. It was released in 2009, It is not 2011 and still no sequel? Uggh!!
Update (5/11) - I have changed my rating for this book to 4 stars...I am still withholding the 5th star until the sequel is released! I have read about 4 more times and it gets better everytime!
Update (10/12). October 2012. Still no sequel. This author must
The "High Prince" of vampires falls for 'gasp' a human, which endangers her very life in more ways than one.

This is a well-written IR paranormal story. The vampire, a gorgeous Asian male who is attacked and severely wounded, ends up seeking the help of a Black human female that he follows home.

From then on the female finds herself thrust in a world that she never knew existed and finds herself hunted down for that knowledge.

The only complaint I have is that it is only Part I and the author says

So.......I'm pissed now and you know why? Because after a lonnnnnnng time of reading crappy books all summer, I finally come across a book I fell in love with, and find out the author hasn't even put out a sequel. And mind you, the book came out in '09. Ms. Ali, if you ever look at this page at all, know you ain't shit for leaving ALL of us hanging.
This book was just ok. I live for vampire stories. I have read lots but the story didn't hold my attention. I know that no two vampire stories are the same, but the story didn't seem innovative. It seemed like the author just took chunks of other stories and put them together. I found my self skipping over certain parts because I just didn't see the point. Then after all that for the author to end the book in such a lazy way...that truly pissed me off.

All I can say is , I LOVED THIS BOOK, cannot wait for the next installment, I just hope she keeps jin and Adina together

*******************A little spoiler****************************8
I read this again today and I really had forgotten about the dream with jin and adina, I had to take points off because I'm not into the bondage or anal thing and though I felt the connection between them, they did have sex very quickly and alot in the one day they were together before he left her. Damn
The Alpha Promise **UPDATE** I've been looking searching for answers regarding the SEQUEL ... Authors Twitter Page says... "ALPHA RISING" IS COMING SOON. Jin gets more than he bargains for when he lets Flaxon hide both him and his mate... She Thanks everyone for the support despite the delays ...
This is a re-read for me, this book is so FREAKING good even the second time around I got goose bumps. This is one of the BEST I/R Vampire stories out there. I wish I could give this book 10 stars. I probably will read it again before the year is out....he he he he
Good book. I literally could not put it down. I am hoping book 2 will come out soon. I gave the book a three star rating because of the ending and also i felt that jin and adinas relationship felt rushed even though i liked them together.
I loved this book until it got to the end. I am really disappointed in the way it ended. Can't really give it anymore stars until I know how it ends. I hope the next book is available soon.

I agree with everyone else when they said this was a really good book. I wished the author written a sequel to this story. She did a great job telling this story.
this was very good for those who like sci-fi read; however you'll be like me waiting on the next edition which isn't out yet, very good book to read i must say
Couldn't get past the halfway point ... Just couldnt.
I love this book. I cannot wait for the sequel.
Ok let me start off by giving a round of applause to the author Ms. Ali for writing an entertaining, well written (despite a few grammatical errors), refreshingly new vampire book. I was pleasantly surprised to find an IR paranormal novel that was longer that 30 pages and held my attention. The characters Adina and Jin complement each other well despite the lack of time actually spent in each others presence. The storyline and plot is well developed with intriguing elements of secrecy and suspen ...more

3.5 stars. This book was dayum book, but WTH! A cliffhanger and where is the other book. I enjoy the book of Jin and Adina. Loved Maggie and Flaxon, but what how the hell does it end, what the hell happen; How can an author do this to us readers. I checked all bookstores online, and there is no second part, I am totally devastated, this is the first for me truly. I always try to finish books series when I know it is getting better but now, I have questions: (1) Who were there going to fight at t ...more
Interesting read, the author wasted no time, she jumped right into the meat and potatoes of it all...I like the storyline and the interracial love mixture, but I had to give 3 stars due to the overabundance of grammatical errors! This is unacceptable for a published author, where's the Editor?! I was correcting sentences while reading, that just takes away from focusing on the story...

Another negative is the reunion of Jin and Adina in the mountains, completely turned off by the sexual overtures

There were some glaring grammar issues. But loved the relationship between the H/h.
I absolutely loved this book. Finished in one sitting because I just couldn't put it down. Great characters, great plots, so much emotion, good rythm. A few typos and gramatical errors but nothing detracting from the story. Can't wait for the next installment! Thank you so much Ms. Ali for this great book and please hurry and give us the next treat from your imaginative world. Loved Jin and Flaxon equally and Adina is just great as well as Sashi. I'm on needles and pins waiting for book 2! Thank ...more
What is not bad about this book? Well maybe a few typos, but that doesn't hurt the story at all. Ms. Ali has crafted a truly unique story combining action, love, some steamy sex scenes with vampires. I love the fact that she chose an Asian male protagonist and a Black woman protagonist. That's probably THE most underrated interracial coupling so bravo to her.

Can't wait to read book two, but it sounds like the author wants to do it right and craft a sequel worthy enough of the original.
So this one started out a little slow for me, so it took me a while to complete it. But after I got past the first couple of chapters I couldn't put it down. Adina and Jin had an interesting story. The author seem to mix the identifying characteristics of werewolves and vampires in her main character Jin and the other vampires. I really appreciated the diversity in her characters. My only complaint would be the cliffhanger, for some reason I hate when authores do that. :)
This was a great story. It's a paranormal erotic romance. there was lots of action, but it also had the elements of erotic romance. Unfortunately, I cannot award a higher rating than there stars because, at the end, the author write that a sequel was forthcoming. However, it has yet to appear.
Ok well, I love this book . I read the first version a couple of years back and I just finished the updated version. Im not liking the fact that we will have to wait again for the end . I wil, keep my fingers crossed and hope that it comes out sooner than later.

This is without a doubt a favorite book but the only disappointment is that her fans have been waiting over 3 years for book 2. Not sure what the reason is but if you feel the need to read this book be aware that it is not an ending.
This book was amazing! I'm so glad that I stumbled across the book last night in search of something good to read I love Jin, Adina, and all the other characters in this book. I can't wait until the next book comes out!
I really loved The Alpha Promise. It caught by surprise actually. I love interracial book but never really got into the vampire thing. But I am now! So looking forward to the next installment.
this book was great, probably one of the best vampire books I have read in a while. I just wish the author would write the sequel already, its 2013!!!

One of the best Vampire Novels I've had the chance to read. I'm very disappionted because I don't think she will write the conclusion.
I am truly loving this book. started reading before went to bed. Forced myself to put it down at 2 this morning.
India Coles
