"An excellent continuation of Carpathian legends"

When widowed Corinne Wentworth walks into the bar, Carpathian Dayan immediately recognizes her as his lifemate. Part of the band, the Dark Troubadours, he changes his focus and sings to her and asks Cullen to introduce them.

Corinne's weak heart has put her and her unborn baby in danger. Dayan cannot claim and transform her now because of her pregnancy. Even if she lives through the birth, whether she will be strong enough to withstand her transformation from human to Carpathian even the Carpathian healers cannot say.

The secondary romance between Corrinne's sister-in-law and Cullen (from Dark Fire) adds a little something extra to the story even though Lisa is sometimes an infuriating weak personality. The connections to characters in other books are well written and not contrived so you don't need to have read the whole series to feel comfortable with their appearance. This is the 12th in the Carpathian Dark Series and although they carry the same theme (finding soul mates) there are enough differences in personalities and characters and writing that continues to be inspired so that you wish to see more of this series.

A Carpathian Novel

Dayan, guitar player and singer in the band Dark Troubadours, recognizes his lifemate when telepathic widow Corinne Wentworth walks into the bar where he is singing. She has a heart condition that could end her life at any time, and she is also a target of the people who killed her husband. Dayan cannot turn her into a Carpathian until her daughter is born, but there is a question of whether it will be strong enough to withstand her transformation from human to Carpathian even if she does survive the pregnancy. It is a struggle to keep her alive, with several Carpathians joining Dayan to keep Corinne and her baby alive and safe.

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Vampire, Shapeshifter
