This is the third book in the vampire werewolf series and although I did not read the first two I had no problem catching up.I also must say that this is a series I have every intention of continuing with since it is now up there with my other favorites.
Graeme Temple, once a Templar Knight and now a Cruor Warrior is recovering from a silver bullet that nearly killed him, he has lived through two crusades and has been searching for Bar Du Daegal the Templar Knight that betrayed the Templars and nearly cost him his life centuries ago. Bar was also responsible for his parents death and although he never saw him he will never forget his voice.
Graeme met Kate Corrigan, a woman that would occupy his thoughts when no other woman ever had. Thanks to a downpour, something the UK is noted for and a bad choice in parking the two met and although Kate felt a very profound attraction to Graeme she would not give in to her feelings when he tried to help.
Kate grew up in the Saint Germaine Youth Home an orphanage where she and her friends became family. Her friend Elena gave Kate her journal just prior to killing herself a journal that led Kate on the trail of Elliot Hammond who she believes is involved in human trafficking and prostitution, she knows first hand because she almost became his next victim while at the orphanage.
When two of her friends disappear she is introduced to a man who can help, a man that turned out to be Graeme. The chemistry between them is electrifying and Kate finally gives in to her feelings. It becomes evident that she is in danger when Scatha Cruor a group formed by Dac Valerian and whose mission is to rule the world breaks into he home. Kate has no idea what she has gotten herself into and who Graeme and his friends truly are until the day the Scatha broke in and she saw with her own eyes the monsters that were trying to kill her.
When the realization of who she is dealing with hits home she refuses help from the Cruor Warriors and from Graeme who she refuses to ever see again. Going out on her own determined to bring Elliot Hammond down she learns the hard way that when dealing with immortal monsters going it alone just doesn’t work.
This was a great book and fortunately there are many more I have left to read. There is violence, romance, explicit sex, suspense, secrets and lies and a very unexpected surprise.
I can’t recommend this book highly enough, it has it all. It is paranormal romance at it’s best.
