After enduring years of torture from the vampire horde, Lachlain MacRieve, leader of the Lykae Clan, is enraged to find the predestined mate he’s waited millennia for is a vampire. Or partly one. Emmaline Troy is a small, ethereal half Valkyrie/half vampire, who somehow begins to soothe the fury burning within him.
Sheltered Emmaline finally sets out to uncover the truth about her deceased parents—until a powerful Lykae claims her as his mate and forces her back to his ancestral Scottish castle. There, her fear of the Lykae—and their notorious dark desires—ebbs as he begins a slow, wicked seduction to sate her own dark cravings.
Yet when an ancient evil from her past resurfaces, will their desire deepen into a love that can bring a proud warrior to his knees and turn a gentle beauty into the fighter she was born to be?
Oh glorious smut! Paranormal romance is my new jam and I love it! I’ll admit that Emma’s chip on her shoulder about nobody treating her like an adult got a little tiresome, but the steamy sex scenes totally made up for it. I also really like Lachlain as an alpha male Lykae; he’s just hot, what can I say. The plot is far more complicated than any romance book I read before and I can’t wait to continue the series to learn more!
