The war between otherworlders and humans changed Earth beyond recognition. It also saved Bride McKell’s life. Before, the gorgeous vampire was a target for every fanatic with a stake and a crucifix. Now, she’s free to roam the streets-and desparate to find others of her kind. One man claims to have the answers she seeks. Devyn, King of the Targons, is a warrior and a womanizer, and he makes no secret of how much he wants Bride-and how dangerous he could be to her in every way.
And avid collector or women, Devyn easily seduces human and otherworlder alike. Unlike now. Not only does Bride resist him, but she leaves Devyn feeling something entirely new…a bone-deep need bordering on obsession. Her blood is teh key to curing a vicious alien disase, but helping Bride uncover her origins will compel her to choose between electrifying passion and destiny that could tear her from Devyn’s side forever.
Gena Showalter’s most recent book out in 2009 Seduce the Darkness is another thriller with agents and Aliens working together finding romance.
I liked this one Devyn the womanizer was entertaining to read and to see how he was getting whipped by one little vampire who didn’t know about being a vampire. I liked how he used all this charm on Bride but she would not fall for that type of charm, even though she wanted to.
There were times when the book fell a little flat with the story. I found myself drifting off a little when I was reading, but most of the time it was very impressive. Showalter knows what she is doing when writing her fight scenes and very sensual scenes.
As usual the plot and characters were fun and enjoyable to read.
Her next book is coming later this year. So now I wait for her next story on the Alien Huntress series.
