CHAINS OF DARKNESS
In this newest outing, Roane gives readers a heroine who is both feisty and pragmatic, traits that serve her well under these dangerous circumstances. Leave it to remarkable storyteller Roane to dish up an action-packed and seriously sexy story where reluctant partners are faced with difficult choices.
Two years ago, Claire and her friend Zoey were kidnapped by vampires and sold as slaves. Claire survived and was rescued by Rumy, a vampire who has a mission for her. In exchange for helping to find her missing friend Zoey, Rumy wants Claire to use her unique ability to create shields and rescue Lucian from the cave where he has been starved and tortured by Ancestral vampire, Daniel Briggs. Claire agrees to this, knowing that the blood-chains that will give Lucian the power to escape will also bind them together. Daniel has a lot to answer for and Claire and Lucian are determined to make him pay … but can they triumph against a being so strong? (ST. MARTIN’S, Jul., 352 pp., $7.99)
