Bound by blood, addicted to danger, they'll enter the darkest—and most erotic—place of all.
A warrior trained in bullets and blades, Renata cannot be bested by any man—vampire or mortal. But her most powerful weapon is her extraordinary psychic ability—a gift both rare and deadly. Now a stranger threatens her hard-won independence—a golden-haired vampire who lures her into a realm of darkness…and pleasure beyond imagining.
A combat-loving adrenaline junkie, Nikolai dispenses his own justice to enemies of the Breed—and his latest quarry is a ruthless assassin. One woman stands in his way: the seductive, cool-as-ice bodyguard, Renata. But Renata’s powers are put to the test when a loved one, a child, is threatened and she’s forced to turn to Niko for help. As the two join forces, as desire fans the flames of a deeper hunger, Renata’s life is under siege by a man who offers the exquisite pleasure of a blood bond—and a passion that could save or doom them both forever.…
When you think it can't get even better...it does.
I just love strong warrior females, and Renata can definitely kick ass. But she knows when she needs help. She surprised on how kind, considerate and decent Nikolai is...well considering the other vampires she was dealing with it's not a surprise. They come together to save Mira, a child that has an amazing ability and who is saught after by an evil Gen One vampire.
I was sitting on the edge of my seat throughout the book. There were twists and more twists, and just when I thought I had it figured out there was another one. Loved! I liked that it was unpredectable. I loved seeing some of the older characters, but also the introduction of the new ones, like Hunter. Can't wait to hear more about him. And there's also Andreas Reichen, he was in this story as well...and I'm not complaining. I believe the next book of the series, Ashes of Midnight is his.
