Just as a quick side note: I just got some extra cash so I went on a book crazy buying spree, so I have a TON of stuff coming your way, not to mention what I already have on my shelf I have no read yet. So...be ready.
Anyway, This book is a the classic tale of beauty and the beast, with a bit of a twist, the beast is a vampire cursed by lexicon's deity, and the beauty is a relapsed cancer survivor. Perfect right? Nope.
I love this book...it is one of my all time favorites, Ward writes with such conviction for each of these characters, they seem without a doubt real. Rhage and Mary are absolutely perfect together, nothing like the ladies man being brought down by the women who is no where near his type. There is also a very heavy plot line here that continues from the first book "Dark Lover", and it is excellent. We see a new character introduced here, who is one of my favorites as the series progresses. Don't miss this one, its excellent. I liked this book a lot, but it is not my favorite of the series, if you can believe it.
I give this one 5/5 stars. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
