Erotic Paranormal Romance
April 25th 2012 by Evernight Publishing
Tristan Black of the Blackthorne Clan has known heartache and pain. He is a Dhampyre (half-Vampire) and most would say blessed with extreme longevity. Tristan would say cursed as he observed the long, slow decline and then death of his human wife due to old age while he seemingly aged not a day. Now seventy years later, he meets Katrina Hammond who piques his interest.
Katrina is a romance writer on summer vacation when she meets the mysterious and dangerously sexy Tristan. Katrina now finds herself in the middle of a clash between the Blackthorne Clan and a pack of Thropes (wolf shape-shifters).
Can Tristan protect Katrina, and can he protect his heart?
She awakened feelings in him he thought he would not have again. He considered these passions to be little more than vampiric mythology. She awakened his…black desire.
Sexual Content 5/5
→ Opinion | I thought this book had a slower pace compared to Black Lust, Blackthorne Clan first title. I did enjoy that we had the chance to get to know the Thropes and Tristan’s father!
Maybe I expected to see some characters that we have seen in the previous novella, but I’m glad we got to meet Tristan, I really liked him! Katrina could have been more explored and I wanted to see more development coming from her. The romance between Katrina and Tristan wasn’t as strong as their crave for one another, it’s usually how most of the “mate bonds” start. That’s why I could see this novella as an erotica story, similar to Lora Leigh’s novels in terms of sex scenes.
I believe I know who he next book will be about, it’s pretty clear after you read it! And be ready for some minor m/m action – you won’t see it coming!
