A vampire assassin hardened by centuries of service, Tor is a man of discipline and loyalty, never straying from his mission or the rules set out for him, and has purged all his weaknesses, including his emotions.
But the moment he meets the broken, fiery female he is to escort to Oslo, something dangerous awakens in him, something possessive and powerful, and when he is pulled into a deadly game of cat and mouse with the man who betrayed her, Tor discovers he will do anything to protect the woman slowly claiming his heart and give her the vengeance she desires—even break all the rules.
Can Eve embrace her new vampire nature in order to have her revenge and find a reason to live again in Tor? Can Tor and Eve stop the man who betrayed her and the deaths of thousands of innocents? Or will he succeed in creating a new army of hybrid vampires who will rise up against the purebloods?
Eve is a human who through no fault if her own has been turned into a vampire. To say she's not happy about this is putting it mildly and her perpetual hunger drives her on. Everything she believed in has been turned on it's head and all she wants now is vengeance on Adam, the one who betrayed her. She's a hunter but it looks as if events are about to conspire to help her target escape, or are they?
Tor is a vampire assassin who is sent to protect Eve and get her back to her family but she's not about to go quietly! There's something about Eve that Tor finds irresistible and it's not just because of her royal antecedents. Eve is everything Tor wants in a female but unfortunately there are those who would consider Tor unworthy. Eve doesn't care what anyone else thinks but she does care that she's not seen as a pushover! Tor and Eve try to fight their attraction but somethings are just meant to be. Adam (the one who turned her) is as cunning as he is deceitful and although Eve was hunting him it's soon apparent that she's becomes the prey!
Whether it's sexy vampires, erotic angels or dangerous elves, the talented Ms Heaton knows how to craft a story that takes her readers on a wild and adventurous ride! Hunger is yet another example of her vivid imagination and originality. Eve's story has been coming for quite some time with hints In a previous book but happily this works equally well as a standalone. Why not read the other books? They are full of sexy, alpha males who are guaranteed to raise anyone's blood pressure! Tor has been so cold for so long and now he meets the one female who sets him ablaze and it's a wondrous thing!
If you are looking for action, then Hunger delivers as there's never a dull moment. It's not the longest book I've read by Ms Heaton, but it had a fantastic plot and a protagonist that really deserves their comeuppance. These books are quite addictive and can never be written quickly enough for me. Hunger? Oh yes, I'm hungry for more!
Hunger is $6.39 and $3.99 in paperback and e-book at Amazon and B & N.
