A DANGEROUS ALLURE
Bestowed with eternal life by the Ancient Vasilios, Alasdair Kyriakous is one of the most feared and ruthless vampires in existence. His name carries weight across all of the seven continents.
But he is a mystery to his kind, an anomaly among the self-indulgent. While he enjoys the pleasures of the flesh, he is exceptionally particular in his choice of partners and prides himself on his ironclad self-control.
Yet with one look his control will become a thing of the past, and Alasdair will discover that eternal life doesn’t always last forever…
A DEADLY ATTRACTION
Thrust into a world he could never have imagined, Leo Chapel awakens in his worst nightmare. Taken hostage by the dangerously mesmerizing vampire, Alasdair, Leo must rely on his intelligence to escape before he reveals a secret he isn’t even aware he’s hiding.
A FORBIDDEN DESIRE
Unaware that they’ve been brought together by an outside force and are little more than pawns to a higher power, Alasdair and Leo spend time trying to uncover the other’s secrets, the attraction between them growing stronger all the while.
But enemies are watching and preparing to act against them. When decisions that will alter lives and destinies have to be made—can a dead, grey heart learn to beat again?
This is an amazing book! I finished this book in a few hours as I literally couldn’t put it down even though it meant going all day with no sleep!! There is something about an Ella Frank book and me where I am a slave to her words!! Nothing else matters until the book is complete and It was no different with Alasdair.
So this book is supernatural, specifically vampires — but don’t worry these are not your typical vampires. Imagine being over 2000 years old and one of the most powerful, beautiful creatures on the planet. You are what you are and you make no apologies; after all you are at the top of the food chain. Now imagine your latest hunt, young guy, normal by all appearances — easy dinner, right? Well that is what Alasdair thinks as he hunts Leo for two weeks, stalking his prey. Much to Alasdair’s surprise Leo isn’t your average vampire Dinner! Oh and what happens when they prey is attracted to the enemy?
“deadly…he’s so fucking deadly, but so damn hot.” — Leo
You will think you know what is going on in this book. You will sorta be right. You will still be shocked. This is a great start to a series, yes the book ends without it being completed which is slightly irritating but something you almost come to expect nowadays. Don’t let that deter you from reading it though as it is totally worth it and there is a LOT of book there and a LOT of story.
Fuck, he’s sexy. The glowing eyes, those killer teeth, and the way he fell in and out of his native tongue when he was aroused. Sexy was an understatement. Alasdair was every wicked thought and fantasy Leo could have imagined.
