Held captive by a dark, seductive vampire with an unworldly hunger, the beautiful Claire Stroughton fears her life as a lawyer has irrevocably taken a turn for the worse. But when this deeply sensual-and highly dangerous-vampire convinces Claire that his desire for her is stronger than his lust for blood, she is compelled to give everything up to him, body and soul…
This delicious romance is reminiscent of the fairy tale Beauty and the Beast but in this story, the beast’s betrayal is not of his own doing. This story is set in the Black Dagger Brotherhood world but is not actually a part of their story and that works just fine because anyone can read this, but if you are a fan of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, then you will love this book twice over.
Claire is a sweet character, but she’s also brimming with strength and Ward writes strong female leads like no other. Without giving any spoilers away I will just say that Son is one of the sweetest characters ever to be portrayed as a beast. This book is a tearjerker and completely addictive.
