Vampires and witches don't mix. And falling in love with one is completely out of the question ... unless she can extinguish those nasty demons from your mind.
Lane DeMarco is a broken vampire plagued by a horrific past that makes intimacy and trust impossible. His passion for playing music is the only thing satisfying enough to curb his insanity...until Vanessa shakes his life up harder than the San Francisco earthquake. She's smart, sexy, headstrong, and his desire for her could spiral out of control…except she is a witch. The same witch who once cast a nasty spell on him.
Vanessa Creamer inherited a powerful birthright, but traumatic events in her life have shattered her confidence. Though she hides it well, she struggles daily with self-doubt and denies her deepest longings for the one man she truly wants. Her attraction to Lane, with his sultry voice and bedroom eyes, proves irresistible. All her attempts to connect with him have failed and she fears his hatred of her is as powerful and intense as her desire for him.
Passion ignites between them as they struggle with deep-seated secrets that haunt them. Can the witch he distrusts tame the destructive demons that torment him? Or will their fervid desires send him deeper into the hell he's been living in?
Frenemies to lovers
I hadn’t read any of the series and jumped right in to this 3rd book. The couple for this book start out as enemies/longing for each other. They’re drawn together then push apart several times before they start making progress. I really enjoyed the well-drawn characters and the banter/sniping with some supernatural happenings and plot twists. If you like a feisty heroine and a hero who needs to get over his issues and meet her halfway, you’ll love Vanessa and Lane.
