I thoroughly enjoyed this amazing paranormal short story. I thought the author did a really good job explaining the various paranormal elements (vampires, seraphs and wraiths – oh my!) and I thought the balance between world-building and progression of the plot was handled exceptionally well. Readers who enjoy a strong sense of paranormal but still retains plenty of regular plot and romance progression should find this story as satisfying as I did.

I also was seriously impressed with the three main characters. Eden, Gideon and Jacob were all individual characters and fairly well-rounded (albeit a little stereotypical) but it was the chemistry and connection between them that I really loved. The author kept the connections between these three deliciously balanced too and I really commend how inter-connected they were. Eden and Gideon had a decade or more of flirting and dancing around their attraction, Eden and Jacob had that delicious first flush of attraction and instant chemistry, and Jacob and Gideon had a seriously smoking hot new-vampire sizzle and connection that nearly burned right off the page. So at no stage did I feel like one of the three was an added extra or slightly superfluous to the ménage and they each added plenty of chemistry and steam to the relationship.

I found the plot was really well handled and quite solid and there was ample time for the relationship between the threesome to develop. The sex – when we finally got there – was deliciously hot and explicit and well, well worth the wait. It’s not often I say this – but I really *really* hope that the author comes back to this world and writes more stories. I’d be totally all over a sequel – or a series of Eden, Gideon and Jacob saving the world one battered woman at a time. I’d also absolutely read any further stories written in this world and running along a similar vein. I will absolutely be keeping an eye out on this author and live in hope.

With a great plot and interesting characters this is a seriously smoking hot and sexy short story. Recommended.
