Acclaimed author Kresley Cole introduces a sizzling new series with this tale of a fierce werewolf and a bewitching vampire -- unlikely soul mates whose passion will test the boundaries of life and death. A mythic warrior who'll stop at nothing to possess her . . . After enduring years of torture from the vampire horde, Lachlain MacRieve, leader of the Lykae Clan, is enraged to find the predestined mate he's waited millennia for is a vampire. Or partly one. This Emmaline is a small, ethereal half Valkyrie/half vampire, who somehow begins to soothe the fury burning within him. A vampire captured by her wildest fantasy . . . Sheltered Emmaline Troy finally sets out to uncover the truth about her deceased parents -- until a powerful Lykae claims her as his mate and forces her back to his ancestral Scottish castle. There, her fear of the Lykae -- and their notorious dark desires -- ebbs as he begins a slow, wicked seduction to sate her own dark cravings. An all-consuming desire . . . Yet when an ancient evil from her past resurfaces, will their desire deepen into a love that can bring a proud warrior to his knees and turn a gentle beauty into the fighter she was born to be? Includes an excerpt from Kresley Cole's next romance novel, No Rest for the Wicked.

I heard from other readers who have enjoyed the series that this was the first book published and later a prequel, which became Book 1, was published. Emmaline Troy, a half-vampire, half-Valkyrie, is out on her own ...
The Lykae and vampires were natural-born enemies---had been since the first nebulous chaos of the Lore. Blood adversaries. Embarrassing tidbit about Whiskey, I can't shake my love of Disney's Beauty and the Beast. What a horrible message to send out to little girls and boys but there you hav...
The beginning of the book was a bit strenuous. I hated Lachlain and Emma was annoying. He was way too pushy and possessive and she was super wimpish. They do get better throughout the book but I still think Lachlain is just a bit too possessive. Emma grows into a formidable character, though. She le...
I simply love Emma and Lachain
