Jett's writing style is very good and the book is quite an easy read. The characters were relatable and I felt emerged enough in this book to really wonder what was going to happen next. There were very few mistakes other than the occasional spelling error. The issue I had with this novel was there were quite a few holes in the plot where at the end of the book your left questioning why certain things happened. The plot was decent enough for it to still be a very enjoyable read but I was left with quite a lot of questions. All in all a really enjoyable book and I would certainly read more of Jett Abbott's books.
Feb 20, Erin rated it it was amazing Shelves: I am a huge fan of the paranormal lesfic genre and this story did not disappoint!
There was so much action and tension from the very first page that I had a hard time putting it down once I cracked it open! Locke has it all- success, well, dependable friends and immortality. The only thing missing is a soul mate for her heart, but that would be impossible since her one true love died generations ago. So when Clarissa Graham appears in her life again, A. It is a huge chess game with each character playing a piece in the game. I enjoyed the twists and turns along the way as well as the love that survived betrayal, deception and years.
Jett Abbott did a fantastic job of grabbing the reader with a great character and keeping the story leaping along.
I am definitely looking forward to the sequel where hopefully some of the supporting cast will have a chance to tell their story. May 20, Jen Silver rated it really liked it. I don't usually like vampire stories Twilight has a lot to answer for! But this was very enjoyable. In fact the Twilight lovers could have learned a lot about vampire sex if they had read this book first. I'm sure that after I've had a lie down in a dark room, I will want to read the sequel 'Scarlet Assassin'.

They fight against pure evil.
It was fascinating and frightening. This story never failed to keep me gripped. Love is love even for vampires. Really liked this book. Had lots of excitement and flash backs to the past. Lots of surprises when they realise the truth. Great romance book to read. Had a lot of European and French backdrop in it.
Enjoyed the story line and cannot wait for the continuation of the story in the next book. Hopefully there is a "book 2". There is something to be said when a story can capture our attention from the start and then anchors us for the duration of the book. I have a tendency to try and guess how each character will fair in a story and when this occurs, I look forward to matching wits with the author and seeing how close I come to the ending Ms.

The feeling of being part of the characters and to feel their connection indicates an insightful and creative author. I await with anticipation Jett Abbott's next book! I enjoyed this book, and characters. Except I was disappointed on how it ended. I get it was being set up for another book, but it was really weak, after the way the whole book was written well.

You can tell it was written by a lesbian and not a man. It made me want to whisk my partner away and have an adventure. A lesbian romance w a touch of vampire. Not as developed as any one of L. Rand's Midnight Hunters books but still a good read. See all 14 reviews.
