As part of a challenge from her online fan base, megatalented Feehan agreed to try and make sure that the identity of her newest heroine remains cloaked in mystery until the book is officially released. To honor that challenge, my review is unusually cryptic. Fans have been waiting a long time for Zacarias De La Cruz’s story and it is well worth the wait. With a hero who is more predator than man, Feehan gives her readers a ringside seat for the fireworks. Grab some popcorn, settle in and enjoy!
Although he helped his brothers defeat a vampire army, Zacarias knows he has run out of time. With his brothers safely with their lifemates, Zacarias has decided to end his long life. As he lies waiting for the sun to finish him off, Zacarias is enraged when a disobedient human female saves him. Zacarias has had minimal human contact over the years, so he is in no way prepared for the behavior of this woman. With her gentle determination and solid steel spine, she is more than a match for his conditioned imperial will. The danger remains, however, as his mortal enemy approaches.
