Back Cover Blurb:
To maintain peace with the vampires, Eva Maldonado is offered as a sacrifice to the crazed vampire king by her father, the alpha of the Silveria Shifter Pack. Hadrian’s reputation is both legendary and lethal; he is ruthless, bloodthirsty, lusty, and soulless. When Eva arrives at the ancient fortress high in the Carpathian Mountains, she is shocked to find a ravaged man with dark burning eyes filled with loneliness and dangerous desire.
Would she be his lover…or his prey? His savior…or his victim? Would Hadrian lure her into madness or would their perilous passion be their redemption?
I love how we get to meet the shifters in this instalment. For once, they aren’t the good guys, nor are they the bad guys. They are a very culturally bound group that will definitely spark some controversy. Half-breeds are also different here. We (as readers of paranormal stories) are so used to shifter DNA being dominant that the way Greene develops it is surprisingly riveting & extremely well done, it not only makes her characters stand out, but draws you to them.
This was an exciting & exhilarating story that I definitely couldn’t put down. I can’t wait to read more from this riveting author.
