He's bent on revenge for the evil vampire who turned him put him in a coma for 39 years. She is also bent on killing the same evil vamp who killed her family. She's a tiger shifter and has to get past the idea of wanting to mate with a vamp. It's an ok read.

Book rating: 4.5
Narrator: 4

First things first, I loved the story. It was a slow burn romance but more sexy compared to her Embraced series. There's plenty of action and a solid plot, lots of characters I believe are from previous books. The entire villain motivations got sort weak towards the end and some things were sort of left out and forgotten about but I didn't really care too much since I read this mainly for the romance. The heroine is engaged to another person, but not really. She didn't even know about it until her cousins told her and she never wanted it so I wouldn't really call that engaged since it's against her wishes. The one thing that bothered me was the surprise dead spouse of the hero. He did had a wife and a child before he became a vampire which served to strengthen his motivations I believe to kill the villain but it is a big pet peeve of mine. Like he would still be with his wife and child living a normal life if he hadn't been turned into a vampire.

I loved the heroine. She was charming, cute, innocent and could fight. I loved how her just plain goodness and sweetness knocked the hero to his feet all the time. The hero respected her abilities and let her fight and participate in his quest for revenge and called themselves 'partners'.

I liked the narrator. He had a nice steady voice, but not much different types of voices. I still could tell the difference between characters though. ( )

Unfortunately this is the last in this series, but I'm still OK with that because I've only read a few of them. This author has a way of enticing the reader to start anywhere and do just fine, but leaves the reader desperately wanting to read more in the series to find the *whys* and the *how did that come to be*. Basic premise is that one vampire is a chemical genius with no desire to kill humans and therefore he develops a synthetic blood, makes a boatload of money, and his *factory* is staffed and secured by other vampires as well as shifters. Each book is a romance/suspense thriller/great fun. This entrant is a vengeful vamp living in the depths of China near a village of tiger shifters and each of them want to destroy the evil vampire warlord. No spoilers, read the book!
The audio was narrated by Enrique Morales, and he does a superior performance with all of the males, and it doesn't take long before the listener forgets that it is a man portraying Jia (female protagonist). ( )

The hero lives as a hermit, emerging only from his cave to seek out his maker and kill him for what he did. The hero is a loner, he has no real friends, he secluded himself in the jungle and only socializes with the other vampires when he goes to their house to take food and appliances. The heroine is a tiger shifter and a princess to her people. But she's never been the 'princess' type, not since the murder of her parents. She hunts the enemy vampire and will stop at nothing to kill him. It's then that the hero and heroine realize they are hunting the same enemy. The heroine wants to team up, she knows her best chance at finding the man responsible for her parents murder is to partner up with the loner vampire. But he wants nothing to do with it. First of all, he's instantly attracted to her and knows that he must keep her at a distance else he fall under her spell. Secondly, he doesn't believe she can help him accomplish his goals and he vows to stick to his mentality of hunting alone. That is, until he realizes her nose could help him after all. But secretly underneath the mask he wears around others, he likes the idea of being her hero. She looks at him with eagerness and she has an open, innocent way of believing in the good in him. So they begin their search for the enemy. I really liked the heroine. She was timid at times, totally innocent of sex or what to do with a man so when she starts having feelings inside she has no idea what to do with them. I also loved the hero. He really was a loner cowboy. He kept his cards close to his chest, only giving away very hints of his secret growing love for the Chinese beauty. He's tortured by the idea of her marring someone else but he's not the type to take what he wants. He's willing to live with the loss of her if it's her choice to leave him. He was honorable and full of pride which harmed him at times. Overall I really liked the story and would have given it a higher rating if not for the god awful ending. Everything was going so well until suddenly angels and demons and Lucifer showed up. The enemy is killed and the battle is won but no, they had to go and toss in the extended cut. I was so disappointed. But I will give it a 3 star rating as I loved the hesitate proud but insecure love affair both characters had. I think this is the last of the series and I'm sad to see it go but I'm glad it went of a decent note. ( )
