Publisher's summary

Even vampires should never sleep with the enemy.

Vampire princess Alexia Feodorovna has been undead for 125 years, so it’s been a while since any man has made her pulse race. Until Declan Black. One look at his bronzed body and a fire like no other consumes her. Then she discovers that he’s a dragon lord come to take revenge on the vamps who killed his parents - and claim a crystal said to imbue its owner with incredible powers.

Alexia is ordered to torture and kill the dragon lord. Yet with each reckless encounter, she finds herself consumed by his fiery passion. A passion Declan battles, as well. Will he be able to resist the fire of lust she kindles within him and keep revenge in his heart? Or will he risk everything to quench the burning desire and claim the vampire as his own?

A Sketch, not a Portrait

I'm a fan of the paranormal genre, but to be honest, this book fell flat for me. You got a glimpse of the "world" where the story takes place, and a glimpse of the main characters, but nothing really seemed well developed for me. The heroine's motivations weren't terribly clear at the outset (and even at the end, I'm not sure I understood them). The attraction between the hero and heroine is more or less instantaneous, as is the consummation of that attraction. There's no real build up or tension between them. The villein featured heavily in the book, but there was no complexity of character for him. He was simply a stereotypical villein. If you compare a good book to a portrait, then this book is merely a sketch. You can see the outlines, and what the story intended to be, but the colors and complexity just aren't there.

The reader, however, did a very decent job of narrating the story, keeping the reader involved even when the writer dropped the ball.

Over all a good story

I wish they could have used different voices for the characters, but it was still a good book.
