Review by Jen: When Red Sage sent me a copy of this ebook, I was curious about it. But had several other reviews that needed to be done first, so it got pushed to the wayside. But as I was home sick today, I pulled out my new nook and started to read. I was drawn in to the story from the start as Lena is a young woman, alone in the world and overwhelmed by a stranger. Soon we jump ahead a couple decades and we meet the vampire that Lena has transformed in to. She's killed in the past, but realizes that she doesn't have to live that way and breaks from her master and pack. She's again alone in the world, and she meets Richard while at a bar and is immediately drawn to him. And then the story really takes off.
I haven't read many books with a vampire heroine and a human hero. All too often, if the woman is vampire, then the man is as well. This was an interesting, and refreshing, twist. Lena is a woman who can take care of herself, but is tired of being along. But she doesn't want another pack, she longs more for a family. Then she meets Richard, a man who challenges her and can provide that family she's longing for. It makes quite the intriguing plot. Of course, what vampire story can be complete without some sort of villain. Enter Darien, Lena's former master, a ruthless vampire who wants her back in his pack or dead. And he's willing to follow her across oceans to find her.
At times the story was a little more violent than I like. And a few of the sex scenes pushed some boundaries as the author explored the S&M, dom/sub world. But I found myself riveted to the story and couldn't put the book down until I was finished. If you're looking for a vampire story with a bite and a bit of a twist, then this one is for you.
This book is currently only available as an ebook at Red Sage.
