I have read all of JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood books, Lara Adrian's Midnight Breed books, and was looking for something to read while waiting on the next one to come out. I couldn't put this book down!

I struggled at the beginning of the novel because everything is thrown at you all at once; new terms, meanings, ect. It would have been a big help if there was a glossary to use as a reference, but after the first few chapters I was able to get the hang of this new world Laura Wright has brilliantly created and the story started to flow for me. Alexander Roman grabbed me right from the start. He is a sexy alpha male and the eldest of the three Roman brothers who escaped their credentis and the Order, making a life for themselves in the human world. Until the Order finds Alexander and forces him into morphing, a last phase in a pure blood vampire's growth where he either has to find his mate or he turns into a sex crazed monster. Now Alexander must hunt down the impure, Ethan Dare, who is building an army against the Order, otherwise they will force his brothers into morpho as well. Sara Donohue, a doctor who has spent her life trying to cure her brother from the mental effects of a deadly childhood accident, finds Alexander on her front porch and comes to his rescue. When she walks inside her apartment though, her world is turned upside down by the revelations of an ex patient and the vampire now lying on her floor. As the danger around them heightens so does their desire. Alexander knows though that he can not have a lasting relationship with Sara, a human, because eventually the need to find his mate will take over, so though he seems to have a sizzling connection with her he tries to keep her at arms length. Because of his childhood past he doesn't wish to have a mate period and refuses to be dependent on one person so he eventually succumbs to the passion rising between them. I loved the chemistry between these two, though I guessed the ultimate twist for Sara early on and it wasn't a surprise for me at the end. The dialogue between Alexander and his brothers was wonderfully entertaining and I liked that by the end Sara earns their respect. I have a feeling that there was a lot of foreshadowing going on for a few pairs of vampires and I won't be surprised if things turn out the way I'm thinking. All the characters really captured my attention and I'm going to grabbed Nicky's story asap. Wright pens a great background for all and unique world building, letting just enough slip at a time. I read Eternal Hunger in one sitting; I just could not put it down Eternal Hunger is dark and sexy with captivating alpha males, strong women and an intriguing world of pure blood and impure vampires. Full of romance, hot scenes, action and suspense this is a must read!

If you love paranormal romances, this is a MUST have. This book was absolutely AMAZING!!!! From the beginning to end, you will be hooked. The love scenes were HOT, the dialogue had perfect timing and she even tossed in some humor. If you are a Lora Leigh, Christine Feehan or Nalini Singh fan, you will LOVE this book. It was quite refreshing. I am anxiously awaiting the next book Eternal Kiss!!!!!

I heard of the Mark of the Vampire books from my book club but I didn't expect what I got. I began reading Laura Wright's 1st book Eternal Hunger-Mark of the Vampire and I was immediately caught up in the plight of the three Roman brother's. Alexander Roman only wants to live in peace and escape from his past. But when he's forced to face the rulers of the vampire breed and that past the book really races forward and I was hooked. I loved how Laura Wright built her world and how her character's jumped off the page and raced through my mind. I found myself at work day dreaming about Alex Roman, the sexy, troubled vampire and Sara Donahue the smart, dedicated doctor. I couldn't wait to get home that 2nd day to finish Eternal Hunger and I did. The relationship between Sara and Alex as they yearn for each other, is a triumph. I finished Alex's book in a couple of days and was eagerly awaiting Eternal Kiss, Nicholas Roman's story. This was a Great Read, a Wonderful Find and Laura Wright is a gem of an author.

Great book! I enjoyed that it had more then just the romance between the main characters and the trails around their love. Laura did a great job showing the loyalties among brothers and the determination of a woman for all she loves. I've personal own this book in different formats so I can read it when ever where ever.

I saw this book and thought it looked intresting but before buying it i read some of the reviews and i was put off by what people said about the uses of the C*** word so i didnt buy it but after a while i just had to see what was so bad so i got it. I read the book in one day! Now im no fan of the C*** word my self but i can count how many times the word was said on one hand. The word was used with purpose and not just used to be vulger. The story is thrilling and well thought out. I dont write reviews but i thought this got a bad rap so, here you go.

This series is really different but I enjoyed all of them that she has written so far. You won't want to put them down.

I really liked the story...have read all four now, though the one with Gray was hardly long enough to know the characters let alone have a story. Looking forward to the next one. However, I must caution the reader that the language is rather crude for the love scenes. Using vulgarity seems to be the trend these days with many authors...it detracts from a good story line and really isn't necessary. It is almost like they go for shock value...a real shame. I still give the Mark of the Vampire books four stars even though I would prefer a little more class in the language usage.

This is a good book...though, there are part that dragged a little so I had to skim over it, but was fairly enjoyable. If you are into romance, it's a good read.
