"A contract for his soul, and the contract's up"
She hated vampires. It was her job, her duty, to rid the
world of as many of them as she could. And Lilith was good
at her job, one of the elite hunters. So how had it become
her responsibility to keep this particular vampire alive at
all costs, as though the fate of the world for vampires and
mortals alike pivoted on his survival?
Oh, because that was exactly what his survival meant.
Lincoln is the typical alpha vampire, old bloodline,
relying on no one, taking what he wants, aristocratic
attitude. It's such yummy fun, watching him have to rely on
Lilith, a human at that, to help him somehow break the soul-
binding contract. But when he learns keeping his life puts
Lilith in worse danger, Lincoln willingly plunges headlong
into his destiny, fully depending on one stubborn kick-butt
vampire hunter to love him enough and be smart enough to
figure out the way to save him while he buys her time with
his soul in jeopardy.
Lincoln and Lilith have great chemistry as they are thrust
into battle after battle, saving each other's lives while
each fight the compelling attraction between them. I won't
give away the plot, but I will tell you that it's chock
full of demons, hell-bound contracts, angels, even
Cerberus, with Lincoln's marked soul the suitable exchange
for the contract to be fulfilled. The action is fast-paced,
the romance tender, and the characters' personalities
sharp. You'll be glad you read this one.
