Nightshade, Book 2

BLOODLUST is the second novel in Michelle Rowen's vampire series in which we meet Jillian Conrad who is attractive in more ways than one. She has been poisoned and forced into being the perpetrator in the assassination of the vampire king. Now every vampire is out for revenge and wanting no less than her life for what she has done.

Dhampyr protector and vampire hunter, Declan is half human and half vampire himself, but he has been exposed to the serum which in turn has given him a break in his personality; one part filled with desire and the other with the desire to kill. Now Declan must help Jillian save the daughter of the vampire king from another assassination plot by the Amarantos, while also helping Declan save himself from the serum that continues to drive him mad.

Declan and Jill are an unlikely match from the beginning, but each find a desire and lust for life in each other's presence that they have found with no one and nowhere else. Declan fears that he is losing further control with each passing day and turning into a killing monster. He further fears that as he changes he will kill Jillian himself which is a real problem because he is discovering that he is having feelings for her that he has never felt before.

You will not want to put this one down until the last page. A real haunting tale and love story that is continuously meeting with roadblocks and setbacks, you wonder if these two characters will ever find their happily ever after. I am definitely looking forward to the next installment in this page turning series and while I wait I may pick up the first book too in order to get to know more about the old characters as well.
