The horror of the night he failed to save his werewolf pack from the cruelty of their vampire masters has haunted Nicolae for one hundred years, driving him deep into the Canadian wilderness in search of peace. That peace is threatened when unfamiliar hunters and the scent of blood lead him to a beautiful woman and a hard decision—face his past and help her or risk losing everyone he cares about again.
Bearing a heart filled with grief and with vengeance on her mind, Tatyana is intent on killing the hunters she’s tracking and returning to her vampire bloodline, but her plan didn’t include being shot with poisoned arrows or rescued by a glowering alpha werewolf who stirs forbidden hunger in her.
When the hunters make their move, will Nicolae be able to stop them before it’s too late? Will he be able to overcome the darkness in his heart and embrace his desire for a vampire? And can Tatyana face her fears and risk her life for the sake of forbidden love?
This is the sixth book in the Vampire Realms Romance series. I loved it!
Nicolae is a fascinating character. He is a werewolf, living in Canada. He is the perfect Alpha wolf warrior, but deeply wounded by his past. I loved his protective streak. He has a tendency to over think things, but I suppose his past makes him doubt himself somewhat.
Tatyana is a Nocens vampire, on the trail of genetically enhanced vampire hunters. I loved this character. She is tenacious, stubborn and quite deadly in her own way.
This series is getting better! This story is exciting and the world building has gotten a lot better. I struggled to put the book down, and read it in one sitting! The characters have a depth to them and the back stories are quite interesting. All the books in the series so far have been set in Europe, but it was nice to have a change of scenery / continent. The hunters are suitably evil and dangerous. The story is full of danger, violence and romance. I loved the way the author described the fight scene between Nicolae and Craig, the local werewolf Alpha. It was really intense and reminded me of how real life wolves (not to mention dogs) snap, snarl and bite when in a fight. I actually felt sorry for Beth, who has a crush on Nicolae. However, I don't think she would have been right for him, as she seemed a bit submissive. Nicolae likes his lady to have a backbone, and Tatyana has steel running up hers! The heat between these two characters just about sets the pages alight! The word incendiary comes to mind! And, although this book could be read as a stand alone, I am now looking forward to reading the next book in the series, Masquerade, as soon as possible!
Felicity Heaton has written another fantastic paranormal romance. I love her writing style, which is fast paced, exciting and believable. She is number one on my Favourite Authors List.
As this is an erotic paranormal romance with explicit scenes, I do not recommend this book to younger readers. However, I highly recommend this book if you love erotic paranormal romances full of action, adventure, sexy vampires and even sexier werewolves. - Lynn Worton
