But to succeed, she must become something she detests: a vampire. Her fate rests upon Alejandro Martinez, a sexy vampire with whom she once shared an unforgettable night of scorching passion. Now, while Daria struggles against her newfound bloodlust, the two must slip into the shadows to bring a monster to justice—even as their desire threatens to consume them… from amazon. But this book suffers from some major narrative problems, to the point where I almost gave up halfway through.

October Betrayed by a lover who conned her and murdered her best friend, Daria was furious when he escaped with the equivalent of a slap on the wrist. Now she has her chance for vengeance, and she is willing to do anything to accomplish that, even if it means becoming a vampire herself.
Easier said than done when surrounded by powerful vamps who revere their subject like an angelic benefactor, not to mention her libido is running wild because of her recent transformation from human to vampire. Combining erotic romance with a paranormal theme in a futuristic science fiction setting, this book blends several of my favorite genres into one unforgettable story. There is a lot to love in this book — the plot, the characters, the world itself. I even found myself sympathizing with the villain of the piece.
Well, one of the villains, anyway. There is some good and bad in everyone, at varying levels. Of course the best of the bunch is our hero and heroine, who are inherently good but aware of the darker part of their vampire nature, yet keep it at bay.
Both Alejandro and Daria have spent their lives fighting crime, and their purposes are ultimately altruistic, even if they have some personal motivations in bringing down their enemy. Their cover as a mated couple is what helps them get in to the protected dome together, and it is also a delicious way to ensure they have a good bit of trouble keeping their hands off of each other. Alejandro is quite clear from the beginning that he wants Daria for good, but he exercises a good deal of patience in his seduction of her, allowing her space to find a way to trust him.
That one past betrayal was so vile it left her unable to believe in any man again, fearful of the past repeating itself somehow. When she does let go, we have one heck of a happy ending for this pair. The love scenes up to then are absolutely explosive but nothing compared to what they enjoy when they both put their whole heart into it.
A world this vibrant and intriguing invites readers to revisit there again and again. I know this is a keeper on my bookshelf.
