Betrayed by the Knight Defenders and murdered by his cousin, crusader knight Blaxton de Ferrers rose as a vampire. For nine centuries, he’s preyed on the people he once swore to protect. Gradually, as his emotions leach out of him, he forgets how to feel. Then he meets Harriet.

Harriet Mortlake’s a strong sassy woman who battles her weight and her temper. Her job is to seek out the ancient secrets of the castle that was Blaxton’s childhood home. Instead, she finds the love of her life.

When danger threatens Harriet, Blaxton steps in. Harriet and Blaxton, are a match made in heaven. Except… he’s a vampire and to fully claim her, he’ll have to kill her.

“I’m in a closed-up castle and surrounded by vampires. So why am I the one doing the biting?”

For centuries Blaxton has roamed the earth drinking from people whom he had once vowed to protect. He was betrayed by one his brothers and changed into a creature of the night. It took him meeting a feisty, hot tempered and strong minded woman, for his feelings to return one by one. After living centuries without feeling Blaxton was not willing lose this one chance for love.

The beginning was interesting and well written however one thing that put me off was the fact that it was an insta-love/lust. The passion and lust was evident from the first page and after a couple of pages it was love. I don’t hate ‘love at first sight’ tropes but sometimes it’s tiring to read. I like a little more build up and tension before the declarations of love.

The plot was well written but there were some facts about turning vampires that seemed inconsistent and incomplete. Nothing that ruined the story or stopped me from reading, it just stood out to me.

This is a story where a vampire knight, or warrior, meets his chosen mate. However, this story is not as simple as that. They have to go through a mad man to get to their HEA. It has a heroine with a strong sense of humor, and an equally volatile temper and spirit to match the strength of her hero.

A vampire and a human both with haunting pasts that build their present. A read well worth the time.
