Synopsis from Goodreads:

Dimitri Arsov, the last remaining pure vampire, was thought to be dead for the past four hundreds years. Now, he is back and has a score to settle with the traitor that had tried to kill him centuries ago. But as he waits for his prey to blindly step into his carefully laid trap, his overwhelming hunger for blood is triggered when he saves a beautiful art historian.

Kerstyn Ingmar’s life was normal and straight up boring until the night she is rescued by the dangerously sexy, powerfully mesmerizing, Dimitri. Unable to resist his diamond blue eyes and intense kisses, she is drawn into his world of darkness and closer to her impending doom.

While their desire consumes them, Dimitri is haunted by images of a bloody and deadly future. As his enemies draw near, he must find a way to save his mate from her destiny before fate destroys them both.

My Review:

I loved how Greene layered the emotional component of the story on top of the paranormal and romantic ones. This is a complex tale that will engage you in many ways. At the same time it’s still fast paced and fun. The author’s exquisitely vivid descriptions bring this story to life in a big way. It is positively sinful! Greene also continues to develop her unique concept of the vampire world without shattering our preconceived notion. It all rolls up into an unforgettable story.

And don’t even get me started on the characters. What a fantastic cast we have here. I loved the main couple. They were such diverse individuals, yet they came together giving to each other, and completing one another. The art history aspect of the tale adds an extra layer to the story that I found to be quite intriguing. The fact that the main character had actually achieved her PhD made her that much more admirable. The supporting cast was also breathtaking. I loved getting to know everyone and appreciated how involved in the story they all were.

This novel is fun, funny, sexy, and exciting all rolled into one. If you want a paranormal romance with a dash of spice and a frosting of originality this is the one for you.
