Nikulas knows as soon as he sets eyes on Emma's strawberry-blonde head that he should stay away from her...the moment he tastes her blood, he knows he won’t be able to. Because Emma is HIS.
Seven years after Emma witnessed her sister’s kidnapping, there’s still no sign of what happened to her. She, herself, spent three months in the hospital after the “bear” attack, and still has the scars to prove it. Now, as day after day passes with no news of her sister, she has to fight against the loss of hope…until she gets a phone call from a seductive stranger who claims to have new information. He seems harmless with his teasing manner and Hollywood pretty-boy looks, but she can sense a predatory air of danger about him. Instead of warning her away, however, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to him, and agrees to go with him on a rescue mission to find their missing siblings.
Although Nikulas aches to keep Emma with him always, a ghost from the past won’t let him. And he soon finds out that she her own demons to fight. Determined to resist the Blood Hunger, Nikulas decides that she deserves more than spending her life with a vampire, even if it means losing his own in the process. However, Emma is just as determined to prove to him that they can fight their ghosts…together.
In the world of paranormal romance, there aren’t many new plots. If you read PNR regularly, you can sometimes get confused and forget what you’ve read and what you haven’t because all the blurbs sound alike. But this blurb managed to stand out from the unwashed masses, and surprise, surprise: so does the book.
I think what worked best in this book was the blending of dark and twisty storylines with hints of humor and romance. Most authors can do one or the other well, but not both.
The author also manages to introduce many points of view into the story, which I love. We get to learn about not just what Emma thinks, but also what Nik’s thinking. A few other characters’ thoughts are also introduced. I know some readers are put-off by multiple POVs, but I’m not one of them, as long as it’s well done, which this is.
I’ve also read the other books in the series (Blood Vengeance, Blood Obsession), and they are just as good as Blood Hunger. I’ll definitely be reading future books in the series, and will be keeping an eye on this author.
