A scarred recluse, Jagr makes no secret of his disdain for others' company. But now, as a member of Chicago's powerful vampire clan, he has certain obligations to fulfill. The latest: track down a missing were pureblood and return her to her sister. The problem: Regan Garrett has no intention of complying. And though Jagr agreed not to harm an inch of this stubborn female's distractingly tempting body, he'll gladly kiss her into submission, awakening an urge he hasn't felt in years. Hell, in centuries...
Regan vowed never to be at the mercy of another man. That goes double for arrogant, steel-muscled vampires with eyes of ice. All Regan wants is revenge against those who imprisoned her. She doesn't need an ally. She certainly doesn't need a mate. But soon Regan will have to choose-between a lust for vengeance, and a passion as dark and dangerous as the night...

"You can see why Ivy is known for creating spunky heroines who face adversity straight on and don't back down easily. Add in sexy and powerful warriors, and you have a recipe for paranormal romance at its best." (RT Book Reviews)
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Poor sexy gorgeous Jagr the moody, unsociable, reclusive vampire that prefers his books to people is unwillingly sent on a mission by Styx (his King) to bring back Regan a stubborn, genetically altered Werewolf and one of Darcy's missing sisters but she's just escaped 30 years in captivity being tortured so the only thing she's looking for is revenge.
They have great chemistry and the romance isn't rushed as they understand each other as they've both been imprisoned and tortured and Jagr sympathises with Regan as to why she want and must get vengeance. He agrees to help her before he brings her to Styx and Darcy but even the thought of home and family makes her feel trapped and unhappy. There's plenty of action, likeable characters, humor, various villains, an assortment of supernaturals, a funny French Gargoyle, magic, twists, torture, passion and Regan's character grew and developed thanks to the caring, touching support of Jagr who makes the painful sacrifice of walking away from his soul-mate.
No disrespect to the guy on the cover but Jagr is a very handsome, long haired, sexy, drool-worthy vampire - so what happened with the cover picture?
Worth a credit? This is another enjoyable addition to the series but, IMHO, not the best - but definitely creditworthy and I'm sooo looking forward to book 6 Beyond The Darkness which is about the Were King Salvatore.
The storyline continues with Yager & Reagin. Their adventure to finding love with one another is compelling, unique, and dangerous. Highly recommend this series!
