After arriving in New Orleans—escaping from a tragic past—the virginal beauty falls victim to a series of strange, unearthly attacks. And for the first time in her life, she aches with sexual desire. Now Natalie is confused, frightened, out of control—desperately struggling to understand a world that is transforming around her. But soon she will be powerful and magnificent in ways she could never have imagined . .
Detective Rene Broussard knows the hot young woman in despair is trouble. But something about Natalie intrigues and intoxicates the ruggedly handsome Cajun policeman who has come to her rescue in her time of greatest need. And when he inexplicably wakes in bed beside her—both burning with a lust impossible to deny—he doesn't care that a dark and vengeful enemy has brought them to this moment. All that matters is the irresistible curve of her body, the heat of her passion . . . and the forbidden pleasures the night promises.
With one sharp, sensuous, biting kiss, he will be hers for life . . . and beyond.
Where do I even start with this book? I can honestly say that I wanted to like it. The idea of natural “Born” vampires and made ones “Revenants” was intriguing but beyond that it seems like the author’s main purpose was trying to figure out how many sex scenes could be woven throughout the book – multiple partners, F/F, M/F/F. There is a background mystery going on, brutal murders that happened over a space of 40 years, but not enough attention was paid to that in my opinion. Since this appears to be Ms. Devlin’s first book, it is not a bad first effort – but not exactly a home run either. Hopefully, her next effort will grow in a more positive direction, because I really do want to know who is in the crypt!
My Rating: 2 out of 5 – Take it or Leave it!
