Pain, isolation, and loneliness is what Natalia has endured for the past 800 years, forced to live an existence where only death and revenge are her driving life force. After so much time has past it may take a tall, muscular, alpha werewolf to throw her off track and make her take a closer look at what it means to live an immortal life.

Natalia is known as The Huntress and has become notorious for her ability to kill her targets in the supernatural world that there is even a bounty on her head. Despite all the centuries of killing it has not been able to help heal her heart at the past wrongs that have been inflicted upon her. Since her turning she has keep herself isolated because of shame and fear of what she had become until she allowed her heart to open up to another. The betrayal that she suffered made her promise to never allow another into her heart until Cristian.

Cristian didn't know what to expect when he captures the beautiful vampire that has him intrigued and has captured his heart. This alpha werewolf, also a park ranger, finds himself curious about this vampire and before he knows it he has partnered himself with her to hunt a serial killer in their midst.

I really enjoyed this book not only for the hot, steamy scenes (who could resist a gorgeous 6'6” alpha werewolf built like a Greek God) but also for the emotional connection that the two developed despite their differences. Both have endured traumatic past events and it is Cristian who is able to move on, but Natalia cannot seem to let go. I love how Cristian felt the attraction for Natalia and didn't let the fact she is a vampire from stopping him. The banter that occurred between them and Natalia's refusal to give into her feelings made me laugh out loud at times and at the same time want to smack her across her head for being so stubborn.

I have read the other books in this series and this has been the best one to date. Paranormal romance readers who definitely have a thing for hunky werewolves will enjoy this one. I am looking forward to reading the next one in the series that comes out, Destiny Bewitched.
