Embrace the Darkness
3.5 Stars

After the demise of her previous owners, Shay is placed on the auction block once again and is bought by Viper, a vampire who has been obsessed with the Shallot demon since she saved his skin in the previous book. Unfortunately, another party is also interested in Shay, or more precisely in her blood, and she and Viper soon find themselves on the run from a dangerous foe who will stop at nothing to possess her.

The world building and characterization are still superficial with little detail on the origins of vampires and the nature of their abilities. Nevertheless, the story is well-written with some good action scenes and the romance is satisfying if unoriginal.

Shay is a fiercely independent heroine with understandable trust issues but Viper has an abundance of patience and slowly convinces her to place her trust and her love in him. Their relationship is sweet and sexy, and you cannot help rooting for them.

Dante and Abby reprise their roles and it is good to catch up with their HEA, but the most entertaining character is definitely Levet, the undersized gargoyle with feelings of inadequacy - he is simply a laugh-riot.

All in all, not the most original of paranormal romances but the series has enough potential to keep me interested in reading the next one.
