He watches her from across the crowded dance club, a sensual
black-haired stranger who stirs Gabrielle Maxwell’s deepest fantasies. But nothing about this night—or this man—is what it seems. For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club, reality shifts into something dark and deadly. In that shattering instant she is thrust into a realm she never knew existed—a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to ignite.
Lucan Thorne despises the violence carried out by his lawless brethren. A vampire himself, Lucan is a Breed warrior, sworn to protect his kind—and the unwitting humans existing alongside them—from the mounting threat of the Rogues. Lucan cannot risk binding himself to a mortal woman, but when Gabrielle is targeted by his enemies, he has no choice but to bring her into the dark underworld he commands.
Here, in the arms of the Breed’s formidable leader, Gabrielle will confront an extraordinary destiny of danger, seduction, and the darkest pleasures of all. . . .
Looks like I've found a fun new series to read!
The reviews weren't kidding when they said that this series is very similar to Black Dagger Brotherhood series...so of course I was eager to pick it up I have high hopes it's going to be a fun series read!
Gabrielle and Lucan are our first set of characters to learn about. Not only learning about them coming together but learning about the whole Order and about the war between the Breed and the Rogues....and I feel that all the information packed into this book made me not thoroughly enjoy the story of Gabby and Lucan. I know the all the information is needed so we can understand what's going on, but I just wasn't a fan of the way the story went for Gabby and Lucan along with the knowledge.
It probably doesn't help that I just can't get passed what Lucan did when he went into her apartment when she was sleeping! Seriously....just creepy to me.
