This book is part of a well-established vampire series, in which each book can be read without having read any of the other books. This is great because you can jump in anywhere and thoroughly and completely enjoy the story. This particular story not only has vampires but betrayal, secrets, crazy chases and so much more. The characters are very well developed and very realistic…..at least as realistic as vampires can be. Sherry is extremely interesting with modern ideas and independent while Basil finds himself in a crash course in modern views, dating and women. There are times you can’t help but to laugh. Because this is an established series, there are lots of characters that show up in all of the books and a well-defined world. These facts form an awesome base for all of the stories and will have you looking for more of this off beat vampire series. It’s fun, light hearted and totally addicting.
The last thing Sherry expected was for a teenage girl to come running into her office trying to hide from three men. However, soon, that would seem like the most normal event that happens to her as suddenly she is thrust into a world she had no idea about and finds herself fighting an attraction to a man who says he’s a vampire. Basil thought finding a lifemate was not going to happen. He had a lifemate before Atlantis disappeared. He didn’t expect to find another one. But, even more puzzling is the fact that even though Sherry knows nothing of vampires or immortals, she knows how to mentally block them. Who has she been around?
A few hours ago, Sherry Carne would have sworn that vampires didn’t exist. That’s before rogue immortals rampage through her store, leaving bloody chaos (literally) in their wake. The kicker comes when Sherry learns that one of the vamps on the bad guys’ trail may be her life mate. Her head says it’s impossible. The rest of her takes one look at Basileios Argeneau and has much more interesting ideas.
Whatever Basil expected in a life mate, funny, outspoken Sherry isn’t it. But mind-blowing chemistry and instinct don’t lie. They tell him something else, too—that Sherry’s connection to the immortal world goes deeper than she knows. And that she’s in the kind of danger only Basil can save her from—if she’ll just trust him, now and forever . . .
