Publisher's Summary

Desire is in the blood... Jillian Conrad never believed in vampires. But she's just become a living, breathing weapon against them. Attacked by a desperate scientist, she is injected with a serum that was supposed to act as a deadly poison to vampires. And when the scientist is gunned down in front of her, his secrets die with him. Declan Reyes is only half-vampire, but he hates them with all his heart. He knows that the poison in Jillian's veins could finally destroy the undead kingdom. Also, the serum has had an unintended effect, making her blood irresistible to all vampires---including Declan, whose bloodthirsty traits are driven into a frenzy by her. Driven by duty to protect her and by instinct to crave her, Declan takes Jillian into his shadowy world of blood and battle. But he soon realizes his increasing need for her may be a different kind of hunger...

Good Listen

I was skeptical at first, when this was purchased, and now I'm glad I did, the narrator was excellent and the story line had several twist and turns that made the story. I will absolutely listen to book 2.

Don't believe everything you hear.

I picked this book up on a sale because of two reasons. First I like paranormal romances and second I have read two of Michelle Rowans books (Hot Spell and Inevitable) before. While her previous books were light on a plot they were plenty hot. I was hoping for more of that from this series, I was a bit disappointed. The story isn't bad but the romance with Declan left me cold and I felt that there was more smexiness with the evil vampire king than the hero. But the biggest irritant was the heroine, she was so stupid and gullible. Truthfully though it wasn't a bad book, the world building had potential, if only I could stand the characters. But since I couldn't, I won't be continue on with this series. This Narrator doesn't have much inflection in her voice, but the story does pull you in enough that you mostly ignore her.
