Cara Paulsen does not give up easily. A scientist and a single mother, she’s used to doing whatever it takes to protect her daughter. But “Whatever it takes” has never before included a shotgun wedding to a dangerous stranger with an attitude problem…
Sure, the mysterious Talen says that he’s there to protect Cara and her daughter. He also says that he’s a three-hundred-year-old vampire. Of course, the way he touches her, Cara might actually believe he’s had that long to practice…
I was lucky enough to get an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) so I thought I’d put up a review early to get you ready. It might be mean of me, though, because you’ll want to run out and get the book to read it, but it’s not available until February 2011!
I know, I’m evil. But after reading it, I can’t NOT say what I think about it.
I’d read some of it during the critique process because Rebecca and I belong to the same critique group through the FF&P chapter of RWA. After having only read a few chapters during that, I’ve been chomping at the bit to read the entire book.
Wow, she did NOT disappoint.
First of all, the story is really unique. I love the premise. Second, her writing is stellar. I read the book in one day. Each chapter kept me on the edge of my seat wanting more and more.
I must warn whoever picks up this book–it contains some steamy, steamy scenes. She reminds me of Gena Showalter. Steamy writing, but great stories, great characters, and great writing!
I just loved Talen. He’s a complex character. Really rough and harsh, yet has a tender side, too. That’s my favorite. Rebecca wrote him really well. I just couldn’t wait to see what he’d do next.
So, mark it on your calendar—it’ll be out in February 2011. Or, to save time, you could go pre-order it now. That’s the one I would recommend you do.
