Publisher Description

A woman finds herself in need of protection and seduced by honor in this Novel of the Elder Races from New York Times bestselling author Thea Harrison.

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...

Lacking

Wasn’t a spectacular book but was not bad. The main female character, Tess, was a bit whiny but Xavier was interesting. Not much of a mystery but the romance was good. Do I plan to read the next in the series, no. Some might find it catching but I am done and not to be continue which the series is.

Disappointing

I really like most of this series, but not this novel so much. I found very little about Tess’ character to be endearing. So little of her backstory was told in this book, I couldn’t really get behind her many quirks, her character just didn’t gel for me. {SPOILER} And while I actually liked Xavier’s character, I didn’t find his falling in love with Tess to be very much in character. I kept thinking, “Her? Why?” His rapidly growing attraction to her did coincide with her losing a bunch of weight while training, which was sort of conspicuous and…disappointing (if we are to buy that he fell in love with her for her irreverent personality). Sadly, a miss for me. I enjoy Ms. Harrison’s writing, but this book makes me want to off of her for a while…. 3 stars because I like some of the other stories in this series so much.
