A Sacred Vow by Willa Thorne

Cover Design: Sara Eirew
Release Date: October 24, 2016

I swore a solemn oath that saw to the end of the Cormacs, a family of hunters that persistently sought to rid my coven’s existence.

For years we have lived in the shadows, free from hunters and the weapons of wood that could destroy us.

But the familiar scent of Cormac blood is awakening my senses. We were certain that we had ended the bloodline. Now, the vow I swore plagues my mind. The guilt I harbour buries deep. The desire and lust burns.

My pledge to my family is now a promise to protect the woman I love.

Aurelia Galligan is a descendant of the Cormac bloodline. I should drain her. I have to destroy her. But she may just end me.

**This is a forbidden romance between the hunter and the hunted. It features smoldering vampires and no cliffhangers. The content is not suitable for readers under the age of 18.**


My Review:

A Sacred VowA Sacred Vow by Willa Thorne

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ever since I discovered JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series, I realized that I have a deep and abiding love and appreciation for paranormal romances. I don't get to read them very often, but I enjoy the heck out of the good ones when I do.

Willa Thorne has found a new fan in me! I went into this book blind and was completely blown away. Anyone who was a fan of Buffy or Angel will enjoy this book. The entire forbidden/taboo love theme throughout this story was crazy hot. Traditionally, vampires and slayers obviously don't mix, but this author created such dynamic characters, set the scene for their scorchingly hot chemistry, detailed the struggles, that you can't help but root for them and their HEA. Add to that the way their rich history (though gruesome) was illustrated, the time the author took with character and plot development, and the edge-of-your-seat suspense, it's virtually impossible not to find pleasure in this story.

Lia was naive yet wise, strong, beautiful, loyal and kind. Julian was lethal, intelligent, considerate and honourable. Together they seemed unstoppable because Julian would stop at nothing to protect Lia. Throughout the story we see Julian fight his urges. Lia is a Cormack and he swore a sacred vow to eradicate them all. Between knowing he should kill her for the sake of his coven and wanting to keep her as his own, somehow he fell hopelessly in love with her (and she him). It's no longer about how to get rid of her, but about what he'll have to do and who he'll have to kill to keep and protect her.
