This story gives us well rounded characters, lots of conflicting emotions, and peppers it with a mystery to satisfy the thrill seeking reader. Kimberly Raye has written a great story that teases the reader into wanting to find out more about the Braddock family. We have the paranormal element along with sizzling passion in a fast moving plot. I can’t ask for more in a romance---except maybe more of the sexy vampire cowboys, which we can get in her miniseries of The Braddock Boys through Harlequin Blaze. Enjoy!
She wanted experience. He has 150 years' worth!
Guys don't tend to find gals with guns too sexy. So after years of awkward fumblings, deputy Shelly Lancaster is lookin' for a man.... Not for love-good Lord, no. She just wants some hot, heavy and unforgettable sex with a man who knows exactly what he's doing!
As it turns out, Shelly's just found the perfect guy. Cowboy Colton Braddock is tasty as hell-and one of the perks of being a vampire is that he has years of hot, lusty loving under his belt. Unfortunately, this cowboy also has a wicked thirst for vengeance. But will it prove stronger than his hunger for her?
