This tense little page-turner is not well-served by the rather confusing product description. First, the author's concept is clever, tying the ancient berserkers to vampirism to come up with an intriguing premise - a race of are-they-or-are-they-not? vampire Highland warriors descended from the berserkers. Then she sends a naive young Englishwoman among them, marries her to the head of the clan, and we wait in suspense for Lydia to figure out that she's surrounded by dangerous secrets, and some of her husband's sexual proclivities may be a clue. All is not as it seems in Clan Kilborn ... (Kilborn! what a great name for a clan who are born killers!)
I am not normally a reader of "romantica" - but I like Highlanders and I like vampires, so I couldn't resist a book that managed to combine those elements. I found some of the sex scenes disturbing, but I think it was the author's intent -- after all, what's a vampire book without a bit of creepiness? If you need something a bit thrilling to tide you over while you wait for the next season of Game of Thrones, this book may be for you.
