Starved for blood, vampire, Nicholai Peterhof is greatly relieved when two tourists decide to grace his restaurant, but one sip from the pretty brunette and his world is forever turned upside down. Juliette Staint-John is everything he could have asked for in a heartmate; pretty, smart, built with curves in all the right places…and totally unavailable.
Juliette doesn’t want anything to do with the handsome, young-looking Nicholai. As if their differences aren’t enough, the acute grief over the loss of loved ones keeps her heart guarded. He may be her fantasy, but that’s all he can ever be.
To get past Juliette’s defenses and in order to keep her safe, Nicholai must prove himself worthy of her love and trust. Unbeknownst to the couple, her personal demons are not the only ones threatening their relationship. Hiding virtually unseen by the vampires, Demon Royalty plots to destroy not only the couple but the entire vampire breed. Luckily, Nicholai will do anything for Juliette—even if it means sacrificing himself.
The passion between them rose. Julie’s heartrate increased in time with his own. Their breaths mingled, becoming one. He feathered light, maddening kisses along her jaw then grasped the lobe of her ear between his teeth.
A soft moan escaped from Juliette’s lips when Nicholai tugged the lobe. His warm breath blew sensuously in her ear. A shiver shook down her spine. Nicholai’s lips moved over her delicate neck, rested over the spot where her pulse beat the strongest.
His tongue darted out to caress the throbbing vein. He lapped at the temptation. It called to him, beat at him. Demanded he take what his body needed. What he craved.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
Nicholai meets Juliette when she and her friend eat at his restaurant. He knows immediately who she is, what she is. She is his heartmate, his one true love. He just needs to win her heart before he tells her his secret, that he is a vampire. But there are darker forces at work, that could cost them both their lives.
And it's those darker forces I'm left wondering about! Do the demons appear in books one and two?? Is there an on-going story line between the three books??
Because I'm left thinking there is, and I've not read book one, Alpha Mine, or book two, Deadly Alpha. So I'm thinking I missed something, something important, something I NEEDED!
I did like that the aforementioned darker forces have their say. And even if I didn't like what they said or indeed, did, you all know how much I love hearing from the bad guys!
I find these reviews the hardest to write, the three star ones that leave me feeling kinda meh about a book. And I'm sorry this is short.
Because everyone gets a say, and because I DID finish it (it was touch and go for a while!)
