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.

Nolan: Remember what happened to your sister. They breed like rats. Let me take care of it.
Julian: No. I will take care of it. In the meantime, she’s mine to deal with.
Nolan: You’re playing with fire.
The text exchange haunted me as I tried to distract myself with this gorgeous woman.
She let out a deep breath and curled her slender fingers in my hair- an action that surprised me.
As we discussed her college years and her hobbies, she told me she played T-ball and took dance classes as a child, and ultimately wanted to become a clinical counselor. I was relieved to conclude that she wasn’t a true Cormac threat, despite her bloodline. Her brother, on the other hand, I wasn’t sure about. The intense magnetic pull I felt toward her became stronger as the hours passed. The connection to her was both transfixing, yet haunting. Because I knew what I was going to have to do. Eventually.
But I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with this. This was a really good read from start to finish. Well written story with some good twists in the plot.
Julian is the vampire, having taken an oath to destroy all the Cormac family who are killing his coven of vampires, meets Lia and is strongly attracted to her, more than he has ever known, but she turns out to be a Cormac family member, his sworn enemy, but as the passion fizzles, uncontrollable lust consumes them, can he really carry through on his oath and end her life?
Intense with a dark side, lots of hot passion, with steamy sexy scenes, angst, deception, lies and of course soul searching love, this book has it all. Great characters, Lia is strong, while she should be afraid of Julian she is not and stands up to him, and loves him beyond measure, able to see the good, human and light still within his darkness. Julian is super sexy, dark, dominant, protective and cannot believe what he has found with Lia, his vampire mate. I loved them.
A great read, definitely scope for more books from this, can’t wait to see what comes next from Willa.
