Driven by his insatiable need for revenge, Lothaire, the Lore’s most ruthless vampire, plots to seize the Horde’s crown. But bloodlust and torture have left him on the brink of madness—until he finds Elizabeth Peirce, the key to his victory. He captures the unique young mortal, intending to offer up her very soul in exchange for power, yet Elizabeth soothes his tormented mind and awakens within him emotions Lothaire believed he could no longer experience.
A DEADLY FORCE DWELLS WITHIN HER
Growing up in desperate poverty, Ellie Peirce yearned for a better life, never imagining she’d be convicted of murder—or that an evil immortal would abduct her from death row. But Lothaire is no savior, as he himself plans to sacrifice Ellie in one month’s time. And yet the vampire seems to ache for her touch, showering her with wealth and sexual pleasure. In a bid to save her soul, Ellie surrenders her body to the wicked vampire, while vowing to protect her heart.
CENTURIES OF COLD INDIFFERENCE SHATTERED
Elizabeth tempts Lothaire beyond reason, as only his fated mate could. As the month draws to a close, he must choose between a millennia-old blood vendetta and his irresistible prisoner. Will Lothaire succumb to the miseries of his past . . . or risk everything for a future with her?
Lothaire… Oh, finally I am given the chance to review your wickedness. How do I love this book, let me count the ways… Now, I can’t count the ways, I will be here forever if I count the ways I love this book. I’m going to tell you why…
Lothaire is insane. That is fact. He is not all there, he had drank too much blood, he has to many memories, and he is in dire need of revenge and getting back at all the things that have wronged him along with getting back to his homeland. He is the rightful ruler. But—Lothaire is insane. With that being said we are taken on this man’s journey of a happily ever after, that should probably not be afforded one given all the bad he has done in the world in the name of revenge and his own end game.
Enter Elizabeth, or Ellie. Who is possessed by the death goddess, Saroya—a right bitch. I’m not joking, she is the death goddess. Which means she shuns sex, because sex creates life, and that’s just gross to her. Lothaire is under the misguided impression that said death goddess is his bride. Well, the powers that be aren’t that easy—nor are they predictable. We are tossed back and forth with Lothaire fighting his lust for Ellie and trying to come to terms with the fact he is mated to the death goddess who doesn’t want to hump him. Therefore, the insane in him has moments of treating Ellie like crap. Um, hello—good or bad the dudes a vampire. He’s not Angel, he’s not Stefan, he’s not Edward Cullen. Lothaire doesn’t glitter, or drink from the bag. The dude is a baddie and that is the cool factor he has doing for him. Can bad guys love—its debatable, but he loves Ellie. He learns how to care for his bride through trial and error and it was so fun to watch.
She wasn’t going to put up with his crap after a certain amount of time, and he thought she had abandoned him. It just wouldn’t be a paranormal romance if there was proper communication people!! It is the driving theme of every storyline! So, I gotta say, this was one of my favorites in the series. I can’t wait for the next!
