Forgotten in the mountains of Romania. Forced to live a life he didn’t choose. Suffering the daily pain of loneliness. Spending an eternity without the touch of a woman’s hand.
Though damned as a vampire, Rhad Valentine has been given what some might call the gift of psychic sight. He sees it as a constant reminder of real life going on without him—a life he cannot live.
Mischa Bonovich is on a desperate mission to find her missing sister, Rianna. Led to the mountains of her homeland by the faint call of Rianna’s voice, Mischa needs Rhad’s gift and his strength.
Wild hunger, both foreign and welcome, drives Rhad to his knees. He’d never held a woman so soft. Kissed one so responsive. And in spite of his inner protests, he’ll do anything to help her. Anything to feel just one more touch of her hand.
In the dark forests of Romania, Rhad’s desire won’t be quenched until he tastes what only Mischa can offer, but first, he must save her from a man who has nothing to lose. A man who holds a deadly secret that could tear Mischa from Rhad’s arms before love can happen.
I enjoyed this book but I felt like I was missing something, so now I am going to go back and read the first book. I know they are all stand-alone books but for me I like to get the feel of a series or trilogy by starting at the beginning. Rhad is a vampire living in Romania and Mischa goes to Romania looking for her missing sister. Not knowing what she will find once she gets there, Mischa has researched Rhad because of her sister talking about him to her. Mischa knows he is a vampire and at first feels she is in danger due to this fact. With a little help from her grandfather and sister, who both happen to be ghosts now, she ends up half naked and unconscious on his doorstep. He is attracted to her from the very beginning but denies himself a taste of her blood. Once she comes to, he decides to help her find her sister by locating a shaman that he knows. Unbeknown to either of them, a human is after the same shaman and will do anything to get to him. Love blossoms in this fast paced story. If I had to decide between life with Rhad and going back to Boston... Boston, who? what? where?
