Rating: You Need to Read

Kenric St. James wants revenge. Three hundred years ago, an ancient, female vampire turned him against his will and killed the woman he loved. He's spent more than a century building an Enclave of warrior vampires who have sworn their allegiance to defend humanity and to eliminate the ancient vampire determined to destroy them all. After two centuries of denying his body's needs to gain strength, he's poised to take his vengeance when he meets a new love, who he burns to claim as his own. But giving her his love will surely mean her death.

Emily Ross is a nurse struggling to start a new life. She's a survivor, coming off the tail end of an abusive relationship and the tragic death of her parents. All she wants is time alone to learn who she is without a man and to save the home that holds her heart. The last thing she wants is another controlling, dominant male calling all the shots, in bed and out. Never would she have thought stopping her car one night to save a dying man might change her mind, and her life, forever. But is what they have, their desire, worth dying for?

While a bit on the cookie cutter side, this is a good story. The characters are vivid and on the whole have rational reactions to their world.

But what keeps this for being a “Gotta Read” for me is Markus, or rather the events surrounding him. According to the story, the Enclave has been together for a century or more, and that is more then enough time to get to know someone and all their quirks. So when a person does something out of character, someone should say something. When that person continues to act odd, someone should definitely say something. When the super secret fortress that has never been breached is suddenly attacked with great precision while said person is AWOL, everyone should assume the worst.

Overall, the story is passable, and entertaining enough to be worth rereading in the future.
