"Feehan Strikes "Gold" again with reprint editon"

A previous attempt to depose the Dark Prince having failed, the vampires have dispersed to the far corners of the earth. The hunters have been forced to follow, leaving their beloved homeland and its healing soil behind. Aidan Savage is one such man. An intimate of the Prince, he is a master hunter charged with the task of ridding the New World of the deadly menace. His soul is at risk however for, without a lifemate, each kill brings him closer to turning himself. His home base of San Francisco has recently been invaded by a band of five vampires. He has yet to stop the killing spree. He must hunt.

Aidan is unique in several ways. He is fair in color, a trait that he shares with his reclusive brother Julian. He also has a loyal human family who cares for his home and protects him during the vulnerable daylight hours. This second quirk will later become invaluable to him.

Alexandra Houton is a young woman in her twenties, the sole guardian of her six-year-old brother and a talented graphic artist. This last fact has not escaped the notice of the foremost creator of vampire video games. Excited about the prospect of this highly desirable career move and the hope of creating a better life for the child, Alex agrees to an evening interview at a local restaurant. Unable to leave her young brother at home alone, she leaves him to wait outside with a kindly indigent of their acquaintance.

Shortly into the meeting it becomes clear that the wealthy employer is interested in more than Alex's artistic skills. Stepping out to check on her brother, Alex finds his protector brutally slain. The killer is a creature the likes of whom she has never seen. Attempting to prevent her mesmerized brother from reaching the demon, Alex is captured and spirited away to the entrance of the demon's lair. The vampire has recognized Alex's lifemate potential and hopes to claim her for himself.

Night is upon them and Aidan has discovered the whereabouts of the vampire. After a brief battle he dispatches the betrayer. He then turns to the crazed vampiress of the evil one's creation. She is clutching a small human child. He must destroy her before she can slay the child, but wait....sensations burst upon him like none in his experience. The woman is no vampiress, but his true lifemate and she is dying. Now he must save her at any cost.

Alex cannot distinguish between Carpathian and vampire, she wants no part of Aidan. Will Aidan be able to convince Alex that they are each other's destiny? Can they combine their strengths to fight the menace that plagues them? Will they finally succeed?

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It will be interesting to see how the pair handles raising a human child, as the boy grows older and they remain the same. At some point the child will have to be let in on the secret. If you missed this title the first time around, this is your chance to enjoy a great read!

A Carpathian Novel

Alexandria Houton would sacrifice anything, even her life, to protect her orphaned little brother. But when both encountered unspeakable evil in the swirling San Franscisco mists, Alex could only cry to heaven for their deliverance. Out of the darkness swooped Aidan Savage, a golden being more powerful, more mysterious than any other creature of the night. The ageless Carpathian male snatched them from a hideous fate. But was Aidan a miracle...or a monster? Alex's salvation...or her sin? If she surrendered to Aidan's savage, unearthly seduction and became his mistress of light, would he truly save her brother? Make them the whole family they both craved? Or would she end up sacrificing more than her life?
