If you enjoy paranormal romance with a vampire in the lead role, you’ll love this book! The vampire hero is Caleb, he’s part owns a nightclub, donates blood to help sick children and is also a rancher! He’s also handsome, kind and extremely attractive! When he spots Desiree during a visit to the children’s hospital she’s shattered after a horrendous twelve hour shift but his attraction to her is instantaneous. However, he’s there to donate blood, not to pick up one of the nurses! When she’s coerced by her best friend to visit his nightclub their attraction proves to be mutual. Watch out though, one of his oldest foes has escaped purgatory and is out to make life hell for Caleb – before killing him. He’s started on a killing spree but it won’t be that simple. With Desiree in the firing line, powerful changes, magic, secrets to be revealed and much more all are woven together in this story to make this an intriguing and enthralling read, one that I thoroughly enjoyed.
I requested and was given a copy of this book. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
Desiree is a nurse at the children’s hospital. Being a work-a-holic, Desiree has no desire to hit the clubs after a grueling twelve-hour shift but after being persuaded by her best friend, she caves.
Dressed in cowboy boots, tight Wranglers, and a cowboy hat, Caleb is the man of Desiree’s dreams. He’s handsome, gentlemanly, and sexy as hell. And has a killer secret. He’s a vampire.
Bodies turn up in the streets, drained of blood and missing hearts. The most intriguing part, carved on their foreheads is the Xavier symbol. A symbol Caleb has not seen in five hundred years.
When he learns that Drake Xavier has escaped purgatory, he fears for Desiree’s safety. In his six hundred years on this earth, he’s never feared death. Now the fear of death grips his heart like a vise. Desiree is the only woman he has ever loved. The only woman he wants to spend an eternity with.
Many thanks to Wickedly Innocent Promotions for organising the blog tour for this book which I requested and was given without obligation. The review is my own, honest opinion after choosing to read the story.
