This book focuses mostly on Sam and Hikuro’s attraction to each other which burns hot enough to scorch the pages but the relationship has some difficulties. First Hikuro’s got some serious trust issues but finds himself drawn to the Sam anyway and the reader can’t help but be taken with Sam who has so many issues from her past and her abilities that she’s scared to get to close to anyone, much less a bossy vampire.

I was engrossed in the book from the very beginning and I must say that I like the way the author began this book by giving a brief glimpse of where the characters ended the previous story. I also like how the author mapped out her story of the team splitting in half for part of the book. And the ending sets up the next book nicely, what a tease, I’ll be waiting impatiently for that next book, huh.
Sometimes life takes you down a completely different path from the one you had originally planned.
After successfully rescuing the daughter of a draconian senator and other innocent women from a vampire psychopath, Sam and fellow warriors, Zoricah and Yara, have to trade sunny New York for gloomy London. Time is running out on their unfinished mission. More innocent people will die if they don’t catch the person behind the attacks in New York. But something is making Sam lose control of her powers. Something or someone. Ever since her first - and quite heated - encounter with Hikuro, her energies had gone haywire. The vampire king’s second in command affected her in a way no one had ever before. Her torment, however, is bound to get worse, with Hikuro’s unexpected arrival in London.
Ever since she set foot on vampire territory, Sam had turned Hikuro’s carefully controlled life upside down. He doesn’t trust her, but some strange force pulled him toward her; an inexplicable attraction that defies centuries of training. But if Hikuro is to keep his king safe, he must keep a close eye on Sam, even if he loses his sanity and his heart in the process.
