Part One

Vampire Dante Gabriel escaped captivity only to come face to face with the realization that he knows nothing about his captor or even his own World. He lusts for blood, specifically her blood. Something in Erin calls to him but he can’t ever act on his impulses. Not if he wants to kill Erin.

Erin Hamilton is dedicated to her work. Why then does she not report the man ransacking the hospital’s blood bank? Her body & mind obey all his orders, her blood sings whenever he’s close. She doesn’t understand their connection but she knows she can’t get enough.

I love Dante SO MUCH. He has a lot to deal with and more to learn. But the way he’s drawn to Erin gives me tingles. He’s such a growly alpha. I love it.

This story is completely different from any other Vampire Romance I’ve ever read. The entire vampiric universe is new, exciting and utterly captivating. There’s so many mysterious and secrets that need to be solved and I am superbly excited for what’s to come.

Part Two

Dante’s struggles with coming to terms with the nightmares he’s suffered isn’t getting easier. To top that someone is after Erin but he can’t for the life of him figure out who it could possibly be. As his frustration grows, so does his blood lust and controlling himself is becoming a humongous task. But he’s determined to keep Erin safe even from himself.

Erin can’t understand Dante hot and cold behaviour. She just needs the man to give her what she wants or stay far away. But something is pulling them closer and closer everyday. They can’t figure out what it is nor can they stop it.

I am more confused and Holy Mother my theories are getting insane. I think I am at Dante’s frustration level but GOD IT IS SO GOOD. I am absolutely sucked and deeply invested in this World of Vampires.

Just when you thought you’d have answers the story takes an unexpected turn and now you are wondering how will you get on with your life. I love love love Dante and the way he’s drawn to Erin. It’s so hot, it makes me swoon and hyperventilate. I also have grown to love Erin and honestly can feel her frustration.

I can’t wait to see what all really is happening because seriously Dante and Erin just need to do the do and help us all out.

Part Three

Dante knows about the blood bond and that makes him question everything he feels for Erin. He needs to convince her to complete the bond or else their lives would be at risk. The Vampire race is on he verge of extinction and no human believes in them. How could her possibly explain all this to Erin? More than that how will her stop her from running away?

Erin doesn’t understand Dante’s behaviour but that didn’t stop her from falling for him. Things have started getting more and more suspicious at work and she’s determined to get to the root of it all. Unaware of the danger that surrounds her from all sides, Erin ventures deeper into the World of Vampires and bloodlust.

Omg?? If I thought things would get easier than I was dead wrong.

Dante is still his amazing brooding self and honestly I love his grump hate and cold routine because he can be sugary sweet too. His connection with Erin is so raw and pure, I can’t get enough of it. I keep worrying about Erin’s life constantly and it’s like please just make these two happy.

It feels like things are finally getting to the crucial point and I am desperate for the next installments. This story is super engaging and well written. Can’t wait to see more of Erin and Dante.

Dante Gabriel is starving. What he craves is red gold―human blood. After being held captive as a blood slave to a female vampire for years, he has finally escaped. Unchained at last, he follows his nose to the nearest blood bank to sate his hunger.

ER nurse Erin Hamilton expects just another busy night shift…until she finds a gorgeous stranger vandalizing the hospital blood bank. Though her logic tells her to turn him in, she’s pulled by stronger and unfamiliar emotions to protect the man who seems oddly infatuated with her scent. Chemistry sizzles between them, but Dante, plagued by nightmares of his time in captivity, fears he won’t be able to control himself…especially when he discovers a secret she doesn’t even know she’s hiding.
