He watches her from across the crowded dance club, a sensual black-haired stranger who stirs Gabrielle Maxwell's deepest fantasies. But nothing about this night—or this man—is what it seems. For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club, reality shifts into something dark and deadly. In that shattering instant she is thrust into a realm she never knew existed—a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to ignite. Lucan Thorne despises the violence carried out by his lawless brethren. A vampire himself, Lucan is a Breed warrior, sworn to protect his kind—and the unwitting humans existing alongside them—from the mounting threat of the Rogues. Lucan cannot risk binding himself to a mortal woman, but when Gabrielle is targeted by his enemies, he has no choice but to bring her into the dark underworld he commands. Here, in the arms of the Breed's formidable leader, Gabrielle will confront an extraordinary destiny of danger, seduction, and the darkest pleasures of all.
This was a good start of a series novel. I enjoyed the relationships between the warriors. I also enjoyed that Gabrielle had friends and we got to meet and become invested in. Sometimes the non-paranormal lover is swept away and I always think, do her friends wonder what happened to her? How can a person just up and leave their life without tying up loose ends? But this book addresses that issue. We also got to read about the difficulties of marrying a warrior and it's not always happily ever after.
This was my first book by this author, and I was not dissapointed. She writes very well.
