Eve Devonshire is a woman hiding in plain sight. Not completely human, but not quite a vampire, she's accepted by neither race but is more powerful than either one. Her life has consisted of half-truths and disguises, never belonging or living in one place for any length of time. But now some have heard rumors of her existence and want nothing more than to trap her and dissect her like a lab rat.
To stay alive, Eve can't trust anyone, including the alpha vampire with midnight eyes and a thirst for pain and submission. With her enemies nipping at her heels, Eve has Guerin cornered, and both are determined to get the answers they're looking for or die trying...if they can fight their desires long enough.
Contains hot alpha male vampires, including one with a taste for sexual submission that will lead to some highly charged erotic scenes involving anal, BDSM, various restraints, floggers, and whips.
Eve is alone and running her own club where just about anything goes. She's a unique vampire hybrid who has the ability to appear human and can go out in sunlight. She's being hunted so cleverly conceals her true identity. Eve's father, Kenric, runs a band of vampire warriors known as The Enclave and unbeknown to Eve has recently killed her evil murderous mother.
Guerino is a trusted friend of Kenric and has undertaken the task of tracking down Eve and finding out once and for all if she's as murderous as her mother. What he hadn't expected was to meet a woman who is his perfect match in every way. She's sexy, demanding and loves to be In charge and there's nothing that turns Guerino on more! Getting off to a shaky start, the sparks soon start to fly but those hunting Eve for her blood are catching up. As if that wasn't enough trouble there's also the little fact Eve's mother was killed by Guerino's best friend and there's no way she will take that lying down!
I've read a lot of different takes on vampires but I am always keen to find something a little different and unique and Undying Desire certainly delivers! At one point a vampire transformed into a werewolf and unfortunately that didn't really get explained, although it's possible the issue might have been covered In a previous book in the series.
What I did like though was these vampires are not just bloodthirsty but capable of emotions and relationships. These are quite clearly passionate characters and although I have read a small amount of BDSM stories, I still found it difficult to equate the dominant male vampire with submissive tendencies. It's easier to believe Eve could have dominatrix desires as I could see her innermost predatory tendencies rising. Having said that, the sex scenes are quite explosive and very inventive! Clearly Ms Lee has a vivid imagination and it certainly shows here. Definitely not a book for those easily shocked.
It's an inventive book with lots of twists and turns and a very good plot. I really liked that the author devised new tortures and punishments as it made it feel fresh. Whilst I'm not particularly fond of stories that feature pain, I can see that for these two characters it's an essential part of learning to trust in their relationship. So many confrontations and I was beginning to fear there wouldn't be a happy outcome, but Ms Lee certainly believes in giving her readers an unforgettable ride!
Undying Desire is an e-book and is $0.99 at Amazon and B & N.
