Jared Johnson has always been a force to be reckoned with, first as an outlaw and now as a vampire. Caught in a war between immortals, he doesn't have time to waste, but when a female vampire is attacked, he can't just walk away. He expects a quick good-bye, but what he gets is a vulnerable woman who intrigues and seduces while giving away nothing of the secrets holding her hostage.
Raisa may not have extreme physical strength, but she's been able to survive as a vampire longer than most by keeping to herself. But that's about to change. Forced to accept Jared's protection, Raisa finds it increasingly hard to resist his forbidden allure while keeping the secret that could destroy them both.

Sparks fly and opposites attract when vampires meet in McCarty's second novel of four undead brothers caught up in a war among immortals. When Jared Johnson rescues Raisa, a rare female vampire, from a marauding pack of Sanctuary vamps, he treats her more as a treasure to protect than as a woman to woo. Over time, her irritation and frustration with the arrogant alpha male rancher deepens inexplicably into attraction and mutual desire, but Raisa's secrets could tear their relationship apart and bring down disaster on Jared and his family if the lovers aren't careful. The character-driven story lacks any real sense of place, and the well-written erotic interludes come at the expense of plot resolution, character depth, and suspension of disbelief. (Apr.)
