Publisher's Summary

Darcy Smith always sensed she was different from everyone else - if only she knew how different. Possessing a secret strong enough to end an entire race of demons, Darcy unwittingly becomes a pawn in an epic battle between the vampires and the weres as she discovers a new world filled with ecstasy - and dark passions.
Consumed with lust for Darcy, Styx - the Anasso of vampires - will do everything in his power to keep her out of the lair of Salvatore Giuliani, the deadly leader of the weres. But protecting the woman he loves could cost Styx the ultimate price.
Salvatore Giuliani knows time is running out for the weres. Pushed to the brink of extinction, he will stop at nothing to make Darcy his ultimate conquest and queen - for she alone holds the key to his survival. But which of these men can Darcy truly trust? For all it takes is one bite to plunge her into a lifetime of servitude - or a lifetime of pleasure.

It just took 1 bite... for me too and I was hooked

This is the best one yet and if you're a paranormal romance lover then this is a great series to get into. It has Vampires, Gods, Goddesses, Werewolves, magic and a Gargoyle who stole the show.

Styx, (the King of the Vampires) is drool-worthy, sexy, and very very handsome (a good start) but he's fed up with all the Werewolves on his turf and they're headed by Salvatore (the King of the Werewolves), he's not quite as drool-worthy but still sexy and handsome too (added bonus). Styx is heartless and he has a plan to kidnap Darcy who's a compassionate, beautiful but feisty bartender as he's found out Salvatore wants her desperately. But his plan backfires when his kidnapping of her starts off a chain of events that'll change lives.

This very well-written, exciting and enjoyable story has mystery, passion, humor, surprises, funny banter, an unpleasant family reunion, treachery, action, sex and, of course, a lovely romance. Ms.Ivy has the ability to draw the listener into the richly described plot, then entertains us as she skilfully juggles her characters about, makes their personalities develop and grow into either very likeable/loveable characters or wicked villains and, in the end, we've been thoroughly entertained. My only peeve was the constant repetition by Darcy of the word "cripes" but I guess in her situation I'd be saying a lot worse.

Worth a credit? Oh boy is it ever a YES and, IMHO, if you too are into sexy vampires and paranormal romances then press 'Add To Cart" now you won't be disappointed but, if you can, start at book 1.
