When you've spent an entire year searching through the garbage that inhabits the world looking for the trash that murdered your parents, nothing is going to keep you from seeing that particular journey finished. That's what Katya Markova thought until she met Chase. Now nothing is as it should be,her heart is telling her what cannot be and her involvement in this nasty underworld is now on the Dalakis doorstep.
All Chase Deveraux wants is to create and protect his family (although they can pretty much take care of themselves). Then he meets Katya and things change in an instant; the chemistry between them is flaming, yet she is at times secretive and distant. All he wants is this lithe woman who makes his blood burn, but not at the cost of his family. So it seems he must find a way to get at the truth of not only who she is, but what she wants with his family before there is damage done to them.
I like my vamps, I like the women strong, the men stronger, but most of all I love it when they make the women smart. Katya is an upstanding, fair-minded individual with morals ingrained from childhood while Chase is a compassionate man whose background leads him to be more understanding. This one was a bit different from the norm in only the best of ways (and nope I am not telling how- spoiler, spoiler), and I enjoyed immensely the fact that it was done with intellect, wit, style and a delicate trace of humor to make this one a "sit back and enjoy" read that can be savored. I will say that there are unexpected turns and shifts that catch you a bit off guard, but this just makes it more fun to read.
