On the run from her former employer, Tess knows that she’s vulnerable on her own amongst the Elder Races. That’s why she decides to audition to become the human attendant of a powerful Vampyre of the Nightkind demesne. But while her position affords her the safety she seeks, her protector turns out to be more than she bargained for.
The right-hand man of the Nightkind King, Xavier del Torro is both terrifying and alluring. While his true nature frightens Tess, she can’t ignore the appeal of his innate sense of integrity and self-restraint. Thrown into Xavier’s world, Tess must quickly learn to navigate the dangers—both to her life and to her heart. But the biggest threat comes from her own past…
Sizzling – Strong Chemistry – Captivating Drama – Intriguing Characters – Intense Story
I really enjoyed entering the world of Thea Harrison’s Elder Races again and found Tess and Xavier’s journey to be very interesting filled with drama and danger. The world of the Elder Races was vast and complex following Tess as she dealt with being a wanted woman. The drama was captivating as Tess, a human in a world filled with these strong, deadly supernatural beings, found herself hunted by one of the deadliest creatures and seeking protection from another dangerous being, Xavier.
I was really interested in how Tess would navigate working for Xavier while trying to say clear of her old boss and it turned out to be very entertaining. Xavier being the right hand man to the leader of the Elder Races had him dealing with some crazy drama as well. As Tess worked for Xavier it was great to see both of their perceptions of each other slowly begin change as a friendship began and blossomed into this sizzling romance.
Dealing with all these supernatural creatures there was bound to be some action and there defiantly was some action but was I wished it was more, more vicious, more gritty especially during the big climax. I felt that things wrapped up to quickly. Other than that I really enjoyed Night’s Honor by Thea Harrison.
