Kyla Spencer refuses to feel. Feelings are messy; they’re painful; they hold you back. Due to a painful past and secrets she wants to stay buried she keeps everyone at arm’s length. But then when she is abducted and presented as a gift to Tristan, a bored vampire prince who is destined to become a king, she has to face a few facts. Beyond facing that vampires are real Kyla has to face emotions that Tristan won’t let her run from.
Tristan is a vampire with a ravenous but insatiable appetite. For ten years he hasn’t once had his hunger sated. He feeds constantly, looking for satisfaction, and because his favourite way to feed is to feed during sex he goes through a lot of women. But then Kyla is brought to him as a gift to celebrate a promotion and from the second their eyes lock he knows there’s something different about her. After he gets a taste of Kyla neither of them will ever be the same.
“Between the taste of you, the taste of your blood, and the way you look at me, I haven’t felt this… alive… in… maybe ever.”
Books 2 & 3 avaiable.
Trigger warnings: Explicit sex scenes. Copious amounts of blood. Some dubious consent, an ending that could be troubling to those who are squeamish about blood. If you don’t love vampire alpha males who are also sweet and swoony nymphomaniacs, maybe you should give this one a miss…
ok, let me take a breath and get myself together.
Kyla is a tough cookie, she’s been through a lot and trusts no one. Not even herself. She is kidnapped and taken to a vampire house – a sexy vampire who can’t control her. She doesn’t trust him either. Kyla is part of a big vicious circle. His kisses, his fingers, and just himself try to break through to her. But the instinct to run, to survive is strong in Kyla. When she runs it doesn’t end well. Trust is broken between them. Can she earn it back? And can they figure out what this push/pull relationship is all about?
Tristan is Vampire Royalty – only he’s off his game with Kyla around. Her blood is like a vamp drug and he can’t get enough. She is the nectar and he is the bee. Tristan is the opposite of calm, cool, & collected. He is ravenous, high, and demanding when he drinks Kyla’s blood. He isn’t going to let her go, but he can’t put her in a trance either, so there needs to be a balance. Only she is making it hard for him at every turn. No one else can have her, she is his and his alone. When will she understand that? Can’t she feel his love for her? Slowly Tristan breaks down her walls and immerses himself into her life. But for how long?
This book starts off hard and just keeps going. I will admit I did get tired of Kyla’s shit after a while. She is untrusting and unloving. The last 25% of the I was hooked on every word, watching how this all played out. Could they be together? Was Joe going to do something stupid? what about Tristan or Kyla herself? Who can be trusted and who is just playing a game?
This is a cliffhanger! UGH. Kick me in the gut why don’t you?! But I will be reading book #2 in this series. Hoping and praying for the best.
Note to DD Price, I’d love to see Sam get his own book. I love him. 🙂
