What do you do when your father wants to turn you into a vampire and the man who offers you protection has his own, dark agenda?
Shawna Rawley has no choice but to run. Pentim Rawley, one of the most evil vampires who has ever lived, has just discovered that she is his daughter. Now he's obsessed with finding and turning her. She doesn't want Pentim to find the people she loves and use them to get to her. She doesn't want him to find and turn her. She has only one ace up her sleeve. The human in her may be at risk, but in addition to being half vamp, Shawna is also a white witch!
Chad MacFare has an offer for Shawna he thinks she can't afford to refuse: he'll protect her from Pentim and his minions. But Shawna doesn't trust the sexy immortal. She knows he has his own agenda-he wants to kill her father, and he wants to set her up as bait...
Our Review Wow ! What a great start to a new series I loved it ! Love the characters and how the setting and how the story ended up in the Highlands.I have to say when I started reading the story automatically I fell in love with Chad what a charmer he was and his had a way with words. Chad the dark and mysterious Lord with a sense of humor and also a passionate and protective fellow.He was made up of so many layers that you kept peeling them back that you kept learning one more revealing secret about himself and his family.I was so wishing I was Shawna without the danger of course ! LOL
I have to say that Shawna was a strong and independent women and to have someone like Chad come crashing into your life knowing everything about yourself and not a thing about him made her uneasy and distrustful but Chad had a way of worming into heart quickly.But with a father wanting to use you as tool for destruction and wanting to make you a vampire Shawna needed to trust someone and Chad seemed the person.But, Chad was an unknown not knowing the extent of his super powers.But, she would soon learn......
The story was quite the page turner for me ! I could not wait to see what would happen next I couldn't put the e-reader down as we speak.There was so much going on in the story with Shawna learning more about herself and more about her grandparents and mother learning the extent of there own families abilities and putting her abilities to use along with Chad's to defeat a common goal and rid the evil vampire.The story also surprises you that Count Dracula plays a part in the story and as the story unfolds so will the part that Dracula plays in it and we will learn that he is connected to the story in some way and the story continues in the next of series.
This story had all the things that make a great one for me. Fun characters with whit and adventure wrought with danger, mysterious plot, a love triangle in the making , strange occurrences, more than one person trying to kill you and also had me giggling throughout the story and a ending that you know may or may not he a happy one!
I loved the story and look forward to reading the other books in its series. One of the pluses on this author side for me is she has made this into a continuing series which I so love to read with all the other characters gracing the other stories in its series.Looking forward to learning more about them and the role they will play.
