This is the second book in the "Mark of the Vampire" series. I didn't fall in love with the first book but it had a cliffhanger that I wanted to have resolved. Ms. Wright has created an interesting world for her vampires. She even provides a glossary of terms to describe them in their various roles and states of being. Therein lies the problem for me. It's a little too much going on.

We have purebloods which are vamps born of two purebloods. We have compounds that they live on called Credentis. T

Yep, another book from Laura Wright that I thoroughly enjoyed!!! Man, I'm almost hoping for a book that I don't like these days!!! ;)

Ok, so this one is about Nicholas Roman, the middle Roman brother. He has a horrible history. See, there's this vampire drug and Nicholas' mother was addicted to it back in France in the 1800's or something. She was a whore and the drugs made her sicker and sicker. So one day, a customer comes to be serviced and she's too sick to do it so.... yeah.... she made her

Eternal Kiss is Kate and Nicholas’s book and while my favourite Roman brother is Luca, I found that I did enjoy this book! Nicholas is a tortured hero almost as much as Kate is a tortured heroine. His past has haunted him his entire existence and his reputation isn’t one that he likes to flaunt but can't escape.

Nevertheless, there are a lot of great things about Nicholas! My favourite thing though, is the fact that he is so loyal to his family. His willingness to
Pureblood Kate Everborn's annoyed that Ladd Lett's mom, Mirabelle, is late picking him up again. Thinking about how much she dislikes children and that she only has two more months on the vampire work release program at the Impure blood school, they trade sarcastic barbs. When Mirabelle appears so does Ethan Dare and kills her, Kate screams before Ethan can kill her or Ladd.

With her dying breath, Mirabelle begs Kate to take her son to his father. Kate contacts Nicholas Roman and arranges to mee

I was going to say that I loved Kate. But then she went and did something so freaking stupid and I lost so much of my respect for her. It would have been a 5 star book if not for the ending and Kate being an idiot.

Wow what a great continuation of this series. When i bought these books i assumed it would be just another vampire series, but boy was i wrong. Ms. Wright has a fresh take on so many of the key parts of PRN--vampirisim, mating, supernatural powers and more.

This book was especially enjoyable because the issues facing the H/H were things that any human can relate to. Basically it breaks down to accepting a past you couldn't escape and making that past doesn't prevent you from reaching for a futur

Well, I'd say this definitely out-shined the first book! Kick-ass H & H, both with their own personal baggage to overcome, great pairing. Lots of interesting twists & turns in this one. A very good set-up for the next book, which we have to wait until 2012 to read....:P

I was at about the 69% mark, but I just got bored with it. I wish Nicholas and Kate hadn't fought their feelings and demons and trust issues so late in the story. Plus, there was just a lot going on besides their struggling story and I just got a little confused at times. Again, there was too much going on in this book. I really enjoyed when Laura did it in the first book; it wasn't so messy and all over the place all the time.
Another issue I had was that I just couldn't really connect with the
It's been so long since I read book 1 Eternal Hunger that I had a hard time keeping up at first. The problem with audiobooks is I don't have that handy vocabulary guide to help me out. Once I caught on to the lingo though this book was non stop twist, turns, action and hot steamyness! (The song Meeting in the Ladies Room has forever changed for me) It's a wonder smoke alarms and sprinklers were not going off when Nicholas and Kate are together. I loved both characters and how they came together ...more

This series is so good! I was a big fan of the 1st book in the series and the sequel does not disappoint. Kate, a Pureblood prisoner of the Order on work release, is caring for Ladd, child of a female vampire, when they both witness the murder of Ladd's mother. On her deathbed, she tells Kate that she must take Ladd to his true father, none other than Nicholas Roman. Kate and Nicholas have a volatile relationship from the start that turns into such a burning, consuming love. Nicholas has a past ...more

Nicholas..... LeSigh!

Adored this book. Yes it still has the elements in it that the first book had and I didn't like. But there was so much more to this second book. My heart just broke for both Nicholas and Kate. Their pasts were both filled with things that no child should experience. They're both such strong kick ass characters with a heap of vulnerability underneath. But they don't let that wear them down. They see it as a fact, not a weakness, and they deal with it and move on with their e

3.5 stars. Not as mind grabbing, all consuming as the first novel in the series. Nicholas and Kate make a good pair and both are overcoming their past to make a relationship work. The overall plot and world are good, but in this one I found some tiresome parts to the world. The fact that Ethan Dare is so hard to catch, but doesn't seem to be that powerful bothers me. Is he powerful or not? Without giving away too many spoilers let's just say that the breeding male part is just confusing and over ...more

This was even better then the 1st book. The characters are strong, determined, and hot as hell. I fell in love with Nicky. Damn what a vamp.
Kate is very likeable, her willingness to sacrifice herself for a young boy was really heart felt.
What's going to happen to Gray? I sure look forward to reading more of his story.
So Lucian's story is next and I am so looking forward to it. The teaser at the end of the book really has my interest peaked.
This read has it all; action, passion and hot, hot sex
Awilk -never sleeps-
I really liked Eternal Hunger, but this was better. There was a glossary at the front of the book of all the main terms used, but I didn't really need it this time. Would have been so much more useful in book one.
We got a little back story about Nicholas' past, but I would have liked a little more.
The world building was consistent and I enjoyed Ms Wrights take on vampires and how their laws work.
The secondary characters were all interesting, and now I can't wait for the next book about Lucian. D

Perfect book..again! I will say that there was a few sections that were a little tough to read about his past but I do feel it was a necessary step. Mnay twists that I didn't see coming. Thought is was great. Love Kate and how she developed; love Nicky and who he became. Waiting until February for Luca's book is going to be brutal! Looking for a quick read that's also really addicted..this is it:)

I truly thought this second couldn't be any better than the first, but if I could I'd rate it higher than 5 stars.

Nicholas broke my heart, made me smile....and then made me cry before he got his HEA.

Kate - like Sara before her, kicked ass. I adored the snarky, snippiness between her and Nicky. It had me giggle far too loudly on the bus.

The trouble is now I'm lost.... thirsty for the arrival of Lucian's book!

I said after reading Alexander's book that I felt this series had a lot of potential to become a favourite but this book blew all my expectations out of the water! I thought Nicky would be my least favourite brother but not any more! You can't help but be sucked in to his story. I liked the slight tease of how Laura is going to expand the series and the ending! My God the ending.... Can't wait for Luca's book :)

This series has grabbed me from the beginning, now I am rolling on to experience this new world of vampires pure blood and impure blood. I am riding out the quest to make a new and better vampire world. A bombshell toward the end was a nice way to load one's reader into the next book.

Once I got started I couldn't stop! It has the perfect balance of so many things: danger, sacrifice, love, initrigue, viloence, sex....and so many more great qualities! I can't wait to spend a lot more time with the Roman borthers!

“Kate stared at the paven in the hall outside the door.He was incredibly tall and broad like Nicholas,but that's where the comparison ended.His jaw-length white hair was a stark contrast to his piercing light brown eyes and black lashes.And though he was alarmingly,almost shockingly good-looking,everything about him,every intake of breath,every movement of his gaze,his chin,his mouth fairly screamed hostility.Like an animal who'd been tortured over and over and knew only biting as a response to anyting.” 5 likes
