Diabetic Jema Shaw knows that death is imminent as only the treatments by family friend Dr. Daniel Bradford and her will to live life to the fullest keeps her breathing. During the day Jema works as an antiquities expert at the family owned Shaw Museum while at night she is a crime scene technician for the Chicago Police Department. His wife Angelica betrayed the Darkyn Thierry Durand to the Brethen. They tortured him and though he was rescued and Dr. Keller healed his body, he is insane. The American head of the Darkyn Michael Cyprien orders Chicago Seneschal Falco Erhart to bring Thierry in. --- Thierry sees Jema at a homicide crime scene and finds she provides a mental anchor for him. He creates in her dreams a fantasy world where they are together forever. However reality in terms of Falco and his minion and the Brethen collide with Jema forcing a willing Thierry to risk his existence to keep the mortal he loves safe. --- The strong second Darkyn vampire romantic suspense (see IF ANGELS BURN) is a tense multifaceted thriller that plays out on two major levels. First there is the superb confrontation between the Darkyn and the Brethen with Jema as bait the outcome is in doubt throughout. Secondly there is the romantic triangle between the two Darkyn rivals as both desires Jema readers will wonder which one she will choose, if any. Fans of Lori Handeland¿s ¿Moon¿ novels will want to read Lynn Viehl¿s delightful tale. --- Harriet Klausner

Read this if you want to learn how you shouldn't treat diabetes.

If you are a juvenile diabetic, stay away from this one. The author's treatment of diabetes and her portrayal of an intelligent woman who has had the disease since earjy childhood will give you high blood pressure.

    Creepy - the worst in the series

    I thought the main couple of the story, Thierry and Jema, were pretty dull, and though the author attempted to add depth, she sadly failed. Thierry was a creepy stalker, though Viehl attempts to make this seem romantic. Sneeking into Jema's room at night (and he's NEVER MET HER) and touching her while she sleeps isn't romantic... it's creepy in an I'm-a-sex-offender way.

    I like other characters in this book - the series is good, I like recognizing characters - but this book is the worst in the series. Thankfully, it's a series you don't need to read in order to understand. They all make good stand-alone reads.
