Review by Fern

Kenric St. James wants revenge. Three hundred years ago, an ancient, female vampire turned him against his will and killed the woman he loved. He’s spent more than a century building an Enclave of warrior vampires who have sworn their allegiance to defend humanity and to eliminate the ancient vampire determined to destroy them all. After two centuries of denying his body’s needs to gain strength, he’s poised to take his vengeance when he meets a new love, who he burns to claim as his own. But giving her his love will surely mean her death.

Emily Ross is a nurse struggling to start a new life. She’s a survivor, coming off the tail end of an abusive relationship and the tragic death of her parents. All she wants is time alone to learn who she is without a man and to save the home that holds her heart. The last thing she wants is another controlling, dominant male calling all the shots, in bed and out. Never would she have thought stopping her car one night to save a dying man might change her mind, and her life, forever. But is what they have, their desire, worth dying for?

Publisher’s Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: BDSM content (including/not limited to: bondage, domination, whipping), bloodletting, multiple partners/orgies, strong violence.

It’s been a long time since I’ve read a vampire romance this good, and as someone that devours the paranormal like oxygen, that’s saying something. Jessica Lee has taken one of my absolute favorite genre’s – urban fantasy – and twined it with romance, creating just enough heat and intensity to keep you happy. But make no mistake; While the concept and story are fundamental, this is a pure erotic pleasure that you’ll absolutely enjoy.

Desire To Die For has every element a reader expects in a great romance–tight writing, great plot, steamy sex, relatable protagonists, exceptional character development–only Jessica Lee kicks it up a notch, and then some. You have the hardcore hero, Kenric St. James, who is as sexy as he is lethal, and the witty and kick-ass heroine, Emily Ross, that doesn’t wither or crumble under pressure. When the two come together, the page combusts and detonates, creating a slow sexual burn destined to fry your hard drive and crispy critter your motherboard.

But wait, it doesn’t end there.

Jessica has also given us an exceptional supporting cast, AKA the Warriors of the Enclave, to drool and fawn over. Each one is unique and oozes off the page, so much so you’ll want individual time alone with them. All of the Enclave deserve a story, and if Desire To Die For is any indication, that’s exactly what we can expect. It’s a good thing too, because I will be the first in line to snag a copy on release day.

I’m rating this one as a Best Book, all the way. Brilliantly written and flawlessly delivered, Desire To Die For is going on my keeper shelf. Keep an eye on Jessica Lee. She’s someone you can expect exceptional things from.
