Format: ebook, 480 pages
Published: March 8, 2011 (first published August 1, 1999)
Publisher: HarperCollins
Back cover blurb:
Enter the enchanting world of the Carpathians, where dark adventure, mystery, and love await, and the desires of two daring hearts unite in one irresistible passion.

A telepathic hunter of serial killers, Raven Whitney helps to catch some of the most depraved criminals. But her work keeps her from getting close to others, and has drained her body and spirit. In need of rest and rejuvenation, she embarks for a vacation far from home.

Mikhail Dubrinsky is the prince of the Carpathians, the powerful leader of a wise and secret ancient race that thrives in the night. Engulfed by despair, fearful of never finding the mate who can save him from the encroaching darkness, his soul cries out in loneliness—until the day that a beautiful voice full of light and love responds, softly soothing his pain and yearning.

From the moment they meet, Raven and Mikhail are helpless to resist the desire that sparks between them. But just as fate unexpectedly brings these life mates together, malevolent forces threaten to destroy them and their fragile love. Yet even if they survive, how can these two lovers—Carpathian and human—build a future together? And how can Mikhail bring Raven into his dark world without extinguishing her beautiful goodness and light?

My review:
I don’t know how I managed to get to the end of this. I now despearately need chocolate and a stiff drink.

I’m all in favour of an alpha male – I love them, in fact – but Mikhail is just too far into creepy stalker domineering asshole territory for my liking. The heroine – with the ridiculous name of Raven – was so stupid I shouted at her several times. Of course she lets the creepy domineering dude perform a strange bloood ritual on her without asking any questions, and then waits until later to ask what she had just agreed to (oh, just being bound to him for eternity, no biggie).

The dialogue was extremely stilted, the author uses the word “replentish” several times (this is not a word!) and I cannot believe this book won awards, or that there are another 22 of them in this series! Not for me.

My rating: 1/5
