Hot sex. No regrets. Vampire Marcus Botticelli has spent his life playing the role of the fun-loving playboy. Unfortunately that lifestyle came to an abrupt end for Marcus when his life was turned upside down by his sire. Now in a new city, a new home, he hopes to make a fresh start.
Set on some big changes in her own life, Christina Prescott’s plans are sidetracked when she meets the rich and powerful Marcus. As the nurse mends the Alpha’s broken heart, he isn’t the only one who needs healing when a depraved darkness seeps into their lives.
As passion burns between the two, evil works to smother the flame of love and separate the heartmates for its own gain. With his heartmate missing, Marcus fears his claim to everlasting love will be destroyed and he will be damned to a life of insanity without Christina.
Great continuation of the series!
Deadly Alpha is the great second book in the Alpha Council Chronicles series. The character development is spot on - these are not two-dimensional characters, you will think and feel right along with them as you read. The action is great and keeps the plot moving, but it does not overshadow the romance between Marcus and Christina.
I love Brenda's take on the soul-mate concept. Watching the range of emotions the vampires go through when they discover their heartmates but the feelings are not reciprocated right away makes it seem that much more real and poignant.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the remainder of the series!
