Vampires are nothing but trouble…
As far as beautiful vampire Sadie Pemberton is concerned, werewolves shouldn’t be sticking their noses into New York’s supernatural politics. They don’t know jack about running a city—not even that hot-as-sin new vampire-werewolf liaison who’s just arrived in town.

Werewolves are too sexy for their own good…
The last thing Killian Bane wanted was to end up in New York City playing nice with vampires. Unfortunately, he’s on a mission, and when he encounters the sexiest, most stubborn female vamp he’s ever met, he’s going to have to turn on a little of that wolfish charm…and Sadie’s going to learn a thing or two about what it means to have a wild side…

about Sara || Sara Humphreys has been attracted to the fantasies of science fiction, paranormal, and romance since her adolescence when she had a mad crush on Captain Kirk. An actress and public speaker, Sara lives in Bronxville, New York with her husband, who is very considerate of her double life, and four amazing boys.

{ excerpt } .
Sadie forced herself to look Killian in the face, and the instant she did, she knew it was a colossal mistake. His eyes looked like pools of liquid gold, and she could swear he saw straight through to her very soul. A growl rumbled in his chest and Sadie gasped. His eyes flickered and shifted into the glowing amber eyes of his wolf. The sudden and instinctive change was a glaring reminder of who he was…who they both were.

In a remarkably steady voice, Sadie whispered, “Last night should never have happened.”

“The only thing about last night that shouldn’t have happened was the way it ended,” Killian rasped.

Sadie stilled when his large hand cradled her cheek. Despite her best efforts to resist him, her body quivered uncontrollably as he surrounded her in every way a person could be surrounded. When the heat of his palm seared against her skin, a needy moan escaped her lips. Desire curled inside her like smoke, and regardless of the litany of warnings that ran through her head, Sadie’s hands found their way to the front of Killian’s shirt. She grasped the fabric, still warm from the heat of his body, and pulled him closer. Sweet Jesus, the man had a body that looked like it had been hand carved by the gods themselves.

“Is that so?” Sadie pulled his shirt loose from his jeans and slipped her fingers underneath before trailing them along the hard planes of his stomach. Arching one eyebrow, she held his heavy-lidded gaze. “How do you suppose it should have ended?”

“The same way it should end every night from now on,” he growled. Killian slid both hands into her long hair. Sadie shivered when his fingertips grazed her scalp. He pressed his hips against her before slipping his thigh between her legs. Sadie gasped with pleasure as he put pressure on just the right spot, and when a moan escaped her parted lips, a cocky grin emerged on his. Killian tightened his grip on her hair and leaned in so his mouth was just a breath away. “Every single night should end with me buried deep
inside you.”

I loved this book.


Sadie is a vampire and owns the nightclub, The Coven. For the last few months, a group of werewolves have been frequenting her club -- which is odd not just in the fact that this paranormal club is run by vampires, but the city is heavily filled with vampires. Werewolves don't tend to reside in the city.

Killian and his two right-hand men at in New York City to put together their own club, and have been frequenting The Coven to learn what works best -- at least that's what Killian would tell you. He also is attracted to the vamp, Sadie. 

..,.not that he can do anything about it.

Being heir to the thrown of his people, his father wants him to find his mate. In five years, when Killian turns thirty-five, he's set to take the thrown and needs to have a queen by his side. However, nothing about finding an unsuitable mate for himself is making this heir to the kingdom thing pleasant to him. If he's going to mate for life, he wants it to be with someone of his choosing, someone he can love... Not someone that will fit well in a crown.

Killian has always had dreams of a woman with a moon marking on his back. He's convinced she's the woman for him, and no others will fit. When he discovers that Sadie the vampire has his mark and is the woman from his dreams, his feelings toward her intensify.

I absolutely loved these two. I enjoyed their bickering and teasing. Equally, I loved how Killian tried protecting her in everything that they did -- even if one of the episodes of protection caused deep misunderstanding and had her leaving him.

These two have a number of obstacles to get through: the major one being vampires and werewolves are only starting to co-exist. The idea of having a vampire on a werewolf throne is something that they know will cause problems. Sadie is afraid of what Killian does to her -- both as a female and as a vampire. Her reaction to his blood gives her serious side effects that terrify her.

Sadie's biggest argument in the beginning of the book is that she and Killian can't be blood mates -- her drinking his blood could be detrimental to her. But with the pull these two have toward each other, just the physical aspect of their relationship proves to not be enough.

My goodness, I could go on and on about this book - no joke. I absolutely loved it. I can't wait to go back and read the previous two books, and as for whatever else comes in this series? Super pumped -- because let me tell you: that Texan vampire? He makes me laugh. I can only imaging what his story would be like.
