A dangerous allure…

Alasdair Kyriakous is one of the most feared and ruthless vampires in existence. Bestowed eternal life by the Ancient Vasilios, his name carries much weight across the continents.
But he is a mystery to his kind, an anomaly among the self-indulgent. While he enjoys the pleasures of the flesh, he is exceptionally particular in who he takes them from, priding himself on his ironclad self-control.
Yet with one look, and one man, his control will become a thing of the past, and Alasdair will discover—eternal life doesn’t always last forever…

A deadly attraction…

Thrust into a world he never knew existed, Leo Chapel has awoken in his worst nightmare. One that is being orchestrated by the dangerously, mesmerizing vampire, Alasdair.
He’s taken him hostage, convinced that Leo is hiding something after he managed to incapacitate him, and has vowed to do whatever is necessary to discover what that is—even if Leo himself has no clue.

A forbidden desire that could destroy a race…

Brought together by a force neither are aware of, both Alasdair and Leo are ignorant that they are pawns to a higher power. All they know, is the more time they spend trying to uncover the others secrets, the stronger the attraction becomes.
But enemies are watching, from afar and from within, and when decisions that will alter lives and destinies have to be made—can a dead grey heart learn to beat again?

MY REVIEW

I'm not sure exactly what I was expecting, but it wasn't this. Ella Frank created a paranormal world complete with terrifying vampires and rife with mystical wonders. This story was rich in Greek culture and history and I enjoyed every minute of it!!

Although this story covered many characters and their side stories, at its heart was Alasdair and Leo. Leo was the curator of the National Museum and Alasdair was the 2000+ year old vampire who failed to kill him. Almost immediately, Alasdair feels an intense connection to Leo and can't seem to leave him alone. Not that Leo was bothered by that because he was also insanely drawn to Alasdair.

Strange things happened when these two men kissed (I can't tell you what or it would ruin things). Their lives are linked in ways beyond imagining. Leo must decide which is most important: following his destiny or his heart.

Be prepared for a lot of crotch grabbing. No, not you. Leo just had a penchant of doing this. He couldn't leave his junk alone. Then again, there were many situations that occurred that make this understandable. You'll see when you read the book!
