From Goodreads: Her deadly dreams leave her in grave danger…
Since half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her undead lover Bones met six years ago, they’ve fought against the rogue undead, battled a vengeful Master vampire, and pledged their devotion with a blood bond. Now it’s time for a vacation. But their hopes for a perfect Paris holiday are dashed when Cat awakes one night in terror. She’s having visions of a vampire named Gregor who’s more powerful than Bones and has ties to her past that even Cat herself didn’t know about.

Gregor believes Cat is his and he won’t stop until he has her. As the battle begins between the vamp who haunts her nightmares and the one who holds her heart, only Cat can break Gregor’s hold over her. She’ll need all the power she can summon in order to bring down the baddest bloodsucker she’s ever faced . . . even if getting that power will result in an early grave.

Publisher: Avon
Purchased: Bought on Amazon 

What I Loved: I officially love Cat as much as Bones in this book.  I like how strong she was all through this book even though her world was falling apart.  I like the twists and turns and honestly the way all of this made them a stronger couple!  I also love Vlad—what can I say, he is certainly an entertaining character. 

What I Liked: Bones!  I only really liked him this book.  He was his stubborn, wonderful self but Cat really out shown him in this book.  I also loved the New Orleans history weaved in this story since I have been there a ton of times!

Complaints: None really!  Maybe more Juan—but I think you will have me say that all the time 🙂

Why I gave it a 4: This was a great read! It was well paced, funny, well told, and engaging from start to finish! Plus, I like where the story is going! 

Who I would recommend it too: PNR readers (though I think I am the last to read it) and also UF readers because it is edgier than the typical PNR.
