As Michael’s eyes lit on a female not twenty feet away, he knew without a doubt that it was her blood that called to him and her scent that had awakened him. This female had tethered his soul and returned it to him.
He is the last of his race. The one true king of the vampires. Michael Aristov roams the nightclubs of L.A. after dark, haunted by his past and driven by his hunger. The last of the Ancient Ones, he alone has survived the destruction of his race at the hands of the slayers. Now he is forced to hunt and feed like a common vampire, a creature of lust. Nothing in this world can fulfill his needs…until he meets a woman who’s everything he’s ever wanted. And more.
Her name is Claire Thompson. Her blood is so sweet, so intoxicating—the smell alone draws Michael to her like a moth to the flame. Sly, sexy, and seductive, Claire seems to be the only mortal who can satisfy his craving and seal his fate…forever. Can she be trusted? From their very first kiss, the last true vampire sweeps Claire into a world in which darkness rules desire—and where falling in love is the greatest danger of all…
I enjoyed this. Claire is out to run a con. She's low on money and promises herself she'll go straight after this. Michael is the mark. He wants her blood more than he's ever wanted anything. But she's human. She can't be his tether, can she? The one who returns his soul to him and helps him to be the leader he needs to be. Then she runs off without a trace. I loved Claire. She's very independent. Michael is very old-fashioned, which makes sense considering he is centuries old. It is comical at times. Of course their differences cause problems. But there is more to Claire than meets the eye. This is the first of a series and I can see that there will be more good things to come. I need to read the next book.
