"great paranormal romantic thriller"

In Castle Gorny, Russia, Valkyrie Kaderin "the Cold Hearted" continues her quest to avenge the deaths of her sisters, but to her chagrin and shock she hesitates to kill this particular vampire in spite of her personal vow to never linger when the kill is there. This is only the second time in her life as a slayer that she pauses; the first time ended in tragedy.

Sebastian Wroth realizes instantly who Kaderin is besides the Valkyrie ready to kill him. She is his soul mate whose arrival has given him reason to rejoice in "living" for the first time in perhaps two centuries. She shares his deepest feelings, but he is a member of her enemy species. He intends to make her his bride, but to win her; Sebastian enters the "Hie" ultimate paranormal fighting competition that she has won several times. Let the games begin.

Kresley Cole consistently provides the best paranormal romantic thrillers on the market today (see A HUNGER LIKE NO OTHER). Her latest is a fantastic star-crossed tale starring two adversaries in a forbidden love that besides battling one another in the Hie can only lead in Kaderin's mind, to her choosing between her beloved supportive family and her soul-mate vampire. Sub-genre readers will want to follow the exploits of this Valkyrie and her beloved enemy who has heated her cold heart.

A vampire soldier weary of life. . .

Centuries ago, Sebastian Wroth was turned into a vampire—a nightmare in his mind—against his will. Burdened with hatred and alone for ages, he sees little reason to live. Until an exquisite, fey creature comes to kill him, inadvertently saving him instead.

A Valkyrie assassin dispatched to destroy him. . .

When Kaderin the Cold Hearted lost her two beloved sisters to a vampire attack long ago, a benevolent force deadened her sorrow—accidentally extinguishing all of her emotions. Yet whenever she encounters Sebastian, her feelings—particularly lust—emerge multiplied. For the first time, she’s unable to complete a kill.

Become competitors in a legendary hunt. . .

The prize of the month-long contest is powerful enough to change history, and Kaderin will do anything to win it for her sisters. Wanting only to win her, forever, Sebastian competes as well, taking every opportunity--as they travel to ancient tombs and through catacombs, seeking relics around the world--to use her new feelings to seduce her. But when forced to choose between the vampire she's falling for and reuniting her family, how can Kaderin live without either?
