Hadrian has been battling his inner demon for centuries but with the help of his second he has been fighting back the darkness and trying to make himself the king his people need to lead them.
When Eva arrives at the castle everything changes. Just her close proximity threatens his sanity. He is drawn to her but his inner demon wants her on a deadly level that may endanger her life. Even though his mind tells him he should stay away he can't. There is just something about this luscious woman that draws him, soothes him.
Eva after her mothers death she was taken to her fathers pack, but being a half breed she was abused and beaten on a daily basis since the moment she arrived. So when the vampire knight showed up and demanded a daughter from her father she was not surprised when he offered her the half breed to the knight to be a ward of the mad vampire king.
Excited to finally leave the pack but worried about the rumored crazy vampire king, Eva was not going to let this get her down she would escape first chance she got and live a free life. But once she met the vampire king she was soo enthralled by him the thought of leaving him caused her actually pain.
Every time Eva thought she might be getting threw to Hadrian, he would pull away and act like he didn't want her, but his body told her he did. He reacted to her on the same lust filled level she reacted to him. Some how she must convince him to let down his guard and kiss her.
This story was excellent, I think it is my favorite so far of the series. It is unnecessary to have read the first two before this one to enjoy it. The first two would give you're background on other mentioned characters but is not necessary to understand and enjoy.
The heat that flows between Eva and Hadrian is soo extremely hot one might think my kindle would explode. They have such a magnetic pull towards each other, one that Hadrian tries so hard to ignore which only makes the attraction all the more hot when they come together.
The overall story is entertaining and fun. I enjoyed the whole story from start to finish. I had a hard time putting it down to do normal day to day stuff. My only complaint is that I wish that the reasons behind the pack alpha taking Eva were explained a little better, i felt a lot of questions went unanswered. The mystery behind her heritage wasn't explained enough for me. Then the ending was so abrupt it left me hanging on for more. Either way I would recommend this book whether you have read the first two or not.
