"To die for read!"
Jade was a fierce warrior trained by the monks of Haven.
Nestled deep in the Shaolin Temple on Yufeng Peak they
prided themselves and were selected from the best of the
best from Shaolin, to create an unequaled fighting force
like no other before. Not having been chosen but born into
the Monastery, Jade fought her way to the top to become one
of the warriors to help fight the war against Vampires, and
carries around her stakes as if it was attached to her
body. Also, forming a curiosity against one vampire that
was found at the same nest she was told to destroy, was
what made her struggle very entertaining.
A touch talking vampire named Dillion who is a couple
centuries old finds himself on the very same mission as
Jade. He is staking his vengeance on vampires until he runs
into this tough, fierce warrior woman that makes him want
more than her blood; he realizes that he wants her trust.
Once mysterious and badass cowboy attitude, he just can't
control himself around her, and finds himself helping the
very warrior race that has been killing his species off for
Jade is finally forced to face the passion she has been
sworn to deny herself and sworn to control. Her character
boosts you up and gets you going and takes you on a roller
coaster ride of emotions. Little details with each emotion
that open up to a huge plot. The story was amazing; I truly
was on edge the moment I started to read, wondering what
would happen next. There were parts of the story were I
actually found myself flowing with emotion with the events
happening, which was a good thing. It truly had me
captivated. I also find the way the author describes things
very enticing, she makes me feel like I'm right there,
Barbara J. Hancock is an amazing story teller. Nothing is
better than a good plot that leads up to an intimate scene.
I truly loved both of the characters, Jade and Dillon, and
would love to read more about them. And last but not least
I was so excited about this story that I wanted to give
spoiler alerts all over the place. I recommend this book to
everyone, even those who don't like paranormal romance.

The problem with fighting evil is it often comes in a very attractive package.
Orphaned when vampires massacred her family, Jade has been trained as an elite Haven’s Warrior. She is pure, untouched and focused on revenge. Sheltered in a remote mountain temple, Jade has known nothing but discipline her entire life.
Dillon is as undisciplined as they come, a rogue vampire with rock-star style and a cowboy’s whisky-kissed drawl. He also has a penchant for nicotine, vodka and women—especially women. He’s found a certain tedium to immortality until he tastes Jade’s lips. He’s been through hell more than once in his two hundred and fifty years, but this is the cruelest blow of all—to become a monster who craves a woman’s trust.
Life’s a bitch and then you don’t die.
