Okay so this book was sexy, smart with an edge of danger and frustration running through it. The two main characters have sparks flying from each other, yet Naya would rather deny her obvious connection to the handsome vampire than admit her attraction. While Ronan is just about ready to beat his chest with his fists and demand she admits they have a connection, then throw in a cousin with sharp wit and a barbed tongue, a blood troth, a missing sister, shifters, magic and demons and you’re taken on a rollercoaster ride that could end in their deaths. All in al, I found it a fun and sexy read.
The vampire was built for sin, every inch of him tight and bulky with corded muscle. A killer, that much was apparent, and she couldn't help but wonder if his appetite for violence would rival his appetites for other...things.
Naya Morales is no ordinary mortal. Born with a shaman's power, she has devoted her life to tracking down stolen magic—and punishing those who take it. But one fateful night, she follows the alluring call of a sensual magic that is too glorious to be true—and finds herself face to face with a stunningly handsome thief who is too magnificent to resist... From the moment he sees her, Ronan knows Naya is his mate. Driven by a deep, almost mystical connection, he aches for her body, hungers for her blood, and swears their souls are anchored together. Naya refuses to believe the words of a vampire—or risk the wrath of her tribe. But when she tries to make Ronan her prisoner, neither chains of silver nor fires of hell can help her escape the truth: she is the one who's been captured...
