From Goodreads: Acclaimed author Kresley Cole introduces a sizzling new series with this tale of a fierce werewolf and a bewitching vampire — unlikely soul mates whose passion will test the boundaries of life and death.

A mythic warrior who’ll stop at nothing to possess her . . .

After enduring years of torture from the vampire horde, Lachlain MacRieve, leader of the Lykae Clan, is enraged to find the predestined mate he’s waited millennia for is a vampire. Or partly one. This Emmaline is a small, ethereal half Valkyrie/half vampire, who somehow begins to soothe the fury burning within him.

A vampire captured by her wildest fantasy . . .

Sheltered Emmaline Troy finally sets out to uncover the truth about her deceased parents — until a powerful Lykae claims her as his mate and forces her back to his ancestral Scottish castle. There, her fear of the Lykae — and their notorious dark desires — ebbs as he begins a slow, wicked seduction to sate her own dark cravings.

An all-consuming desire . . .

Yet when an ancient evil from her past resurfaces, will their desire deepen into a love that can bring a proud warrior to his knees and turn a gentle beauty into the fighter she was born to be?

Includes an excerpt from Kresley Cole’s next romance novel, No Rest for the Wicked

Bought for myself

What I Loved:  The 2nd half of the book!  It would have gotten a solid 4 maybe 4.5 from me.  I really enjoyed the characters, the suspense, the action, and the story from about half way on.  Once I got past my initial reservations I fell in love with Lachlain and Emma.  I thought they were both compelling and well-thought out lead characters.

What I Liked:  I am really looking forward to the rest of the series where I get to learn more about the secondary characters in this book.  I thought they were all fun to get to know (didn’t realize this was the 2nd book in the series so I will have to go back and read the first one).

Complaints:  The 1rst part of the book did not really thrill me with the very violent way that Lachlain treated Emma.  I understood why but it still did not sit very well with me.  Luckily it never crossed a line that I could not come back from.

Why I gave it a 3:  This is a really good book but the first part really lowered the rating for me. That being said, I am going to read the rest of the series and can’t wait to see what it holds.

Who I would recommend it too:  PNR readers.  This has got a great mixtures of paranormal characters in it and is a very good read.

    I'm really glad you reviewed this! I started it ages ago and stopped because I wasn't a fan of the beginning. I'll have to pick it back up 🙂

    I had a problem with the beginning also. Thankfully Cole does a great job if redeeming Lachlain. I can't wait to read the next book in the series!Great review.
