About the book:
When it comes to killing vampires, werewolf Cade Thain is the best slayer in the Northwest. So when a witch hires him to take out a pureblood vamp, the assassin thinks it will be just business as usual. One less vicious vamp on the streets... one more undead parasite gone from the earth. Then he meets her.
Allison Gray isn't the prey that Cade expects. Beautiful, innocent, she stirs a dark desire within him. Allison hasn't transformed fully into a vampire, not yet, and it's Cade's job to make sure that she never does. Allison thinks that he's at her side to keep her safe, but Cade is supposed to pick the right moment --and kill her.
Killing Allison is soon the last thing that Cade plans. As she begins the transformation that will turn her into a vampire, her bloodlust and their desire merge in an explosion of need that neither can control. But Allison's enemies are closing in, and the coming battle will take Cade and Allison beyond life, beyond love... and into a deadly darkness that waits to claim them both.
Bound in Darkness.
Warning: This novella is a sexy paranormal romance. As such, it contains blood, sex, vampires, and a hot alpha werewolf. Violence and adult language? Yes, those are included, too.
This was another short story from Cynthia Eden, and she never cease to amaze on the power she can wrap into these splendidly wrapped little stories. I loved the first book Bound by Blood, and while I thoroughly enjoyed this one as well I didn't find as spectacular. This novella seems to incorporate individuals with a little more baggage that played out nicely in the story. I love how the conclusion takes two completely different stories and entertwined them for future reads. I look forward seeing what is next for Eden's short story series.
