Two separate worlds ...
One passion that binds them
Wild and passionate by nature, Lyra Black is not just any werewolf. She's the future leader of the powerful pack of the Thorn - if she can stay alive long enough to inherit the title.
One of the Cait Sith bloodline of vampire cat-shifters, Jaden Harrison has no interest in the wars plaguing the world of night. But when he rescues Lyra from a violent attack, they're both captured by an insatiable desire that threatens to overwhelm them and bind them together for eternity... just as ancient enemies prepare to strike. And when they do, the Thorn and the Cait Sith - and Lyra and Jaden's love - may never recover from the deadly blow...
I loved Dark Awakening, the first book in this series, so I had very high hopes for this story. Castle didn't disappoint me with this sequel.
Betrayal, forbidden desire, shattered dreams and an unlikely romance come together to make this a not to be missed read. I couldn't put it down and was so involved in the story I was surprised to reach the end so soon. I definitely want to read more about the characters in, and visit, Castle's Dark Dynasties world again soon.
It is not necessary to have read the first story in the series to understand what is going on but you should if only to understand Jaden better as well as the vampires of Castle's world.
This time it is Jaden's turn to find his special someone. Jaden is a vampire cat shifter. Lyra is a werewolf and pack alpha contender, hopefully. Who said dogs and cats can't play nice together?
Jaden had thought his sudden desire for her when they first met at the safe house in the first book, which didn't go too well, had just been an adrenalin induced, sick "fluke". But there'd been the sexy dreams. He was "appalled" to think he could actual want a werewolf.
They are both struggling to not give into their desires. It is forbidden -- especially from the wolves' point of view. For the vamps -- it simply isn't done. She could lose everything she's ever known, worked toward and loved if she gives into her desires for Jaden.
She is stunned when her dad hires Jaden to teach her to fight the bigger males, to give her a fighting chance to stay alive.
Includes a sneak peak at Shadow Rising, the third book in the series, and an excerpt from the first book in the series, Dark Awakening.
I am eagerly awaiting the third book in the series, Shadow Rising. Paranormal romance, vampire, and shifter fans, even urban fantasy fans, will enjoy this one. Put it on your wish list today.
