Plot & Characters:
Craved is exactly what the title reveals. A hot, sensual and sexy read! A perfect addition to Ms. Heaton's Vampire Erotic Theatre Novella Series. Ms. Heaton's signature writing style that's layered with elaborate detail and emotions immediately pulled me into Callum and Kritina's world of vampires and werewolves. I really enjoy tales of forbidden love and Crave is the ultimate blend of lust melding into everything a romance reader wants.
After meeting and falling for Callum, Kristina wars with herself between letting loose a bit and enjoying Callum's company for the remanding week he is in town. He wants more than just her desire for him though, he wants to know everything about her which leads to Kristina becoming afraid and untrusting. I definitely understand how frightening it was for the character to let Callum into her world, and I admire her strength to do so after everything she had already been through with her mother and her own pack. Though at first she fought him every step of the way, Callum proved to be a gentle man ready to protect her no matter what. Exactly what Kristina needed in a man and we get to see in full force closer to the end of the book. I liked how the author pulled these two characters together when there was so much keeping them apart. Not only because they are vampire/werewolf, but because of their current situations. One on the run from her pack, the other, at the mercy of the Aristocrats of his species. For such a sizzling and erotic read there were layers of emotions woven into this story that told more than just a story of physical connection. It told a story of how love has no boundaries, no rules and definitely no high class Aristocratic vampire Council or one controlling Alpha can hold back what the heart wants.
As the story drew to an end, the pace of the story intensified further and took a turn I did not expect, but welcomed. That is one thing I really enjoy about Ms. Heaton's work. She knows how to throw twists into her books that ramp up the emotions to deliver an ending I'd never expect. And that is exactly what she did in Crave.
When I first met Callum in Covet I considered him a beta, not really strong and more of a gofer than a alpha male. I was wrong. Ms. Heaton pulled all her writer's tricks together and delivered a story that showed just how alpha male Callum really is and gave him a heroine that any man, vampire or otherwise, would be lucky to have!
Ms. Heaton is taking erotic writing by storm with her VETS! Though she normally writes hot and sensually paranormal romances, her first venture into the spicier side of romance writing is not to be missed. She is a natural!
Hot...no, sizzling paranormal romance at its best! Crave is the second book of Felicity Heaton's Vampire Erotic Theatre Novella Series and shouldn't be missed. A quick read that can be finished within an hour is great to enjoy as an evening read anywhere you're at. If you love the spicier side of PNR this book--this series--is a must read!
His mind has been set on his work for the past one hundred years. Now a forbidden beauty has stolen his attention and is threatening to steal his heart too.
Callum has come to the city of romance on business, not pleasure, but when he sets eyes on a gorgeous werewolf in a nightclub, he can't ignore the dark carnal craving she ignites in him. His work for Vampirerotique, the erotic theatre he runs with three other vampires, can wait. The only thing that matters now is satisfying his sinful hunger for a woman who most vampires would consider an enemy.
Kristina is on the run from her pack. Her alpha is intent on forcing her to bear his child and she's not about to live through the same nightmare as her mother had. When a tall, dark and sexy vampire catches her eye, she can't believe the ferocity of the desire he unleashes in her or the fact that she enjoys the feel of his eyes on her and his silent pursuit of her in the clubs each night.
When Kristina finally gets a taste of Callum in a forbidden kiss, will she be strong enough to resist the allure of the vampire and his offer to share his bed for a week of unbridled, wild sex, or will she surrender to her own craving for the safety and passion she finds in his embrace?
