Born to a noble Breed lineage steeped in exotic ritual and familial duty, vampire warrior Jehan walked away from the luxurious trappings of his upbringing in Morocco to join the Order’s command center in Rome.

But when a generations-old obligation calls Jehan home, the reluctant desert prince finds himself thrust into an unwanted handfasting with Seraphina, an unwilling beauty who’s as determined as he is to resist the antiquated pact between their families.

Yet as intent as they are to prove their incompatibility, neither can deny the attraction that ignites between them. And as Jehan and Seraphina fight to resist the calling of their blood, a deadly enemy seeks to end their uneasy truce before it even begins…

MY REVIEW

A first for me from this author but I don't think it will be the last. I'm still relatively new to reading paranormal romance but I think it's pretty neat when an author puts their own unique twist and makes their plot and characters unexpected. That's what was done here. I like the tie-in of tradition with the hand-fasting and arranged marriage/blood bonding. It was interesting to watch Jehan and Sera's reluctance turn into desire, need, and ultimately love. I especially liked the idea of the Breed co-existing with humans and the Order's mission to wipe out Opus. The series itself sounds highly entertaining.

Short, insta-lovey and sexy with some suspense thrown in for good measure.
