Lachlain MacRieve is the King to the Lykae Clan. He has been a prisoner of Demestriu, King of the Vampire Horde, for over 150 years. The only thing that brings Lachlain to his sanity while being tortured is that he senses his mate close by; he escapes with great loss to himself to find her.
Emmaline Troy is the beloved foster child in her Valkyrie family. She is in Paris to find the identity of her unknown Vampire father. The only thing she knows of him is that he lived with her mother in Paris for a while. As she searches for her father she quickly realizes that she is hunted as well.
When Lachlain discovers Emma he can't believe that she is his mate, she is Vampire, his hated enemy. He decides to keep her until he can figure out if she is actually his mate. Emma does not disclose to him that she is actually a Halfling, which leads to misunderstanding and almost death for Emma.
As Emma and Lachlain travel to Lachlain's home they begin to develop feelings for one another and Lachlain is faced with the fact that Emma is indeed his mate. Emma must be wooed, as she does not believe in mating for life. As enemies search for Emma they must join together to get through the threat.
This book was a wonderful read; I would definitely encourage anyone who enjoys paranormal books to pick this book up. I could not put this book down! The story was well written and the characters were so full of life they seemed to jump off the pages and the steamy sex scenes made me look for a fan. It was enjoyable to read how Emma grows to a more powerful woman. The secondary characters were also well written and I can't wait to read more from this author.
