Vampires exist. So do werewolves. The creatures that you fear in the darkness? They’re all real. And the baddest of the paranormals…those who love to hurt humans…they’re sent to Purgatory, the only paranormal prison in the U.S.
His job is to stop the monsters.
Deadly forces are at work within Purgatory. The monsters are joining together—and their plans have to be stopped. FBI Agent Shane August, a very powerful vampire with a dark past, is sent into the prison on an undercover assignment. His job is to infiltrate the vampire clan, by any means necessary.
She wants to help the prisoners.
Dr. Olivia Maddox wants to find out just why certain paranormals go bad. What pushes some vampires over the edge? Why do some werewolves turn so savage? If she can understand the monsters, then Olivia thinks she can help them. When she gets permission to enter Purgatory, Olivia believes she is being given the research opportunity of a lifetime.
Olivia doesn't realize that she’s walking straight into hell.
To survive, they have to rely on each other.
When the prisoners break loose, there is only one person—one vampire—who can protect her, but as Olivia and Shane fight the enemies that surround them, a dark and dangerous passion stirs to life between the doctor and the vamp. Shane realizes that Olivia is a woman carrying secrets—powerful, sinful secrets. Secrets that a man would kill to possess.
And Olivia realizes that—sometimes—you can’t control the beast inside of you. No matter how hard you try. Some passions can push you to the very limits of your control…and the growing lust that she feels for her vampire…it’s sending her racing right into a deadly storm of desire.
Welcome to Purgatory…a place that’s a real hell on earth…
Olivia has the job she always wanted and now her latest assignment will hopefully see her getting the answers she needs. In a world were paranormals live amongst humans, the most dangerous and bloodthirsty are captured and incarcerated at a top security prison known as Purgatory. Olivia knows her job of interviewing and trying to find out why some can control their inner beasts better than others will be unpleasant, but she's not aware of just how much danger she's truly in!
Shane is a vampire, but he works for an agency that brings the rogues to justice. Purgatory has been failing and it's his job to go in undercover and discover just how deep the rot and corruption go. From the moment he sets eyes on Olivia, he knows she's someone special and his urge to protect her is only matched by his overriding desire to explore her intimately! When Shane's worst fears come true and Olivia's life is threatened, he needs all his hard won control to get her out alive without tasting her! Olivia thought life couldn't get much worse but she's about to find out that sometimes you get more than you ever wished for!
I absolutely loved this book! It's everything I want in a paranormal romance and so much more. Great storyline and I thought the idea of an Alcatraz style prison for Supernaturals really worked. A fast paced plot with very strong characters that came to life on the page and a twist that had me guessing just who or what one of the characters was! Marked By The Vampire was sexy and fun. I can't wait to read more.
Most definitely recommended
