Mastyr Vampire Ian never wanted to see Regan again. He blamed her for the massacre at Raven’s Overlook, an attack that killed his sister and her children. He’s convinced Regan enthralled him, using her extensive fae powers to keep him by her side. If he’d been in his realm that night, he could have saved 200 people. Instead, he was caught up in a passionate affair with the woman known as the Ruby Fae. However, when the enemy abducts Regan, Ian goes on the hunt for her. Finding her trapped behind a wall of mist, he helps her escape the Ancient Fae’s fortress. Reunited, old passions run hot once more, but will the past keep him from embracing the woman he’s loved all these years?
Regan never stopped loving Ian even though they’d dated several centuries ago. But he’d always blamed her for the terrible events at Raven’s Overlook. When she feeds him from her vein and learns she’s a blood rose, she’s devastated. Ian hurt her badly in times past by making her a scapegoat. But when she’s forced to work alongside him to help battle the deadly Invictus wraith-pairs, her love for him rises once more. Yet, can she ever trust him again, when he swears she enthralled him that fateful night?
It's a good thing Regan is so much more than anyone realised. Regan turns out to be a Blood Rose and if she can only get Ian to let go of his previous prejudice, then maybe, just maybe their Realm will be safe. Unfortunately some wounds go deep and Ian's heart just might not be open anymore!
There are all manner of ways to describe Embrace the Hunt. From magical, to passionate, but for me, it's the damaged characters coming forth into the light that really captured my attention. Oh Ian, you were so blinkered by grief and guilt but finally you stepped up and well frankly, it was about time! Regan is written as a heroine that we all want to be. Stronger than she realises, likable, and very brave. Add in the very passionate connection she shares with Ian and it's easy to see why readers keep buying these books.
There are Nine Realms so I fear the end is in sight, but it's been such a fun journey that keeps stepping up the pace with each book and I'm trusting Ms Roane to bring a glorious conclusion filled with heat and action.
