Expected Release Date: February 7, 2012 Publisher: Penguin Imprint: Signet Author’s Website: www.laurawright.com My Source for This Book: Library Part of a Series: Yes, Book 3, Mark of the Vampire Series Best Read In Order: Yes Steam Level: Hot
I have not read the other books in this series. I actually started the first book, Eternal Hunger twice, but for some crazy reason never ended up finishing it (which I admit is ridiculous, because it was an enjoyable read. That’s neither here nor there however), and as such, I’m woefully behind on the mythology and main story arc of the series. I did end up feeling as though I’d arrived late to the party, and that there were several facts and situations that I was supposed to be familiar with before starting this one.
While I wanted to roll my eyes at the “island” scene in its entirety, and I was more annoyed than frightened by the Big Bad, I admit that I did enjoy this one. The chemistry between Bronwyn and Lucian was crackling, and while I don’t particularly care for crude sexual language in romance, even with the c-word being thrown around willy-nilly, I couldn’t deny the heat in the love scenes.
Recommended for fans of steamy paranormal romance, fated mates, and truly starcrossed lovers.
