Rating: 5 Cups
Diana has waited for years for the soul mate her grandmother foretold would come for her. Although her body is nearly weeping with the need of him, she has endured. When she finally finds him, she is torn between her body’s instinctual desire and the fears her vampire hunting father instilled in her. Is Sebastian her dream lover come to life or something darker?
Sebastian, riddled with grief over the recent loss of his stepbrother, is sent to punish the woman used to entrap him. But when he sees Diana, he finds himself trapped. While she dances naked in the moonlight, his only thought is to take her body… not to punish it. Is she a trap so sweet that he will fall to the same fate as his brother?
When each realizes that the other is the soulmate they have longed for, their trust issues don’t magically dissolve in a haze of lust. And with an insane vampire dogging their heels at every step, there seems little chance that these lovers will overcome the obstacles thrown in their path. But the temptation for just one more moment lost in the desperation of a kiss may prove triumphant over it all… if they dare.
The bonding ritual created by this author is one of the most romantic depictions I have ever read. Leaving her characters hearts nearly beating as one and the sexual tension between them at a fevered pitch, the author had me drawn deeply into the story within a few chapters. Excellent erotic paranormal fiction delivered with wonderful world building and a subplot that will leave readers flipping pages and begging for more.
