KOS MARAS’s orderly life is in shambles—he must distribute Blood Vine to a population of ailing vampires, but Hunters block him at every turn. To make matters worse, each night he watches over a temptingly beautiful woman sleeping in his bed. He is convinced love cannot last a vampire-long lifetime and an entanglement will only cause them grief, but he doesn’t have the heart to send her away.
From a long line of blood servants, LENA ISAAKSON is destined to serve a vampire, but a string of humiliating rejections thwarts her pleasure. When Kos shows her kindness, she hopes he will claim her. Instead he proves himself a coward in the face of love and sends her to serve another.
Will the dark seduction of a rakish new vampire finally bring Lena the pleasure she desires or deliver her into the hands of Hunters who want to destroy everything the Maras family has worked for?

Amber you have totally hit the mark with this sequel to the series. I mean I loved Andre and Zoey but when I realized this would be Kos's story I just about died. I couldn't get enough of him to save my life. He is so full of love and compassion but his mother's death has left him haunted and he swears off love even though it will be different for him he still swears love off. He rather have a closed off heart than a broken one. Plus we get to see more of Lena. I have to say that at first I didn't like her because she was going after Andre but he put a stop to that and said no thank you and told her to leave. In her rough departure from Andre Kos comes to the rescue and he comforts her. What was shocking was how he felt about her but he has so much on his plate that he definitely does not need a distraction like Lena.
See Lena comes from a long line of blood servants and she is looking for a vampire to serve. She thought that vampire was Andre but he does not want her. When she is comforted by Kos she starts to have these feelings and she is not sure where they are coming from but she starts to really care for Kos and wants to be his servant but Kos has sworn off love and does not want another distraction on his plate because he needs to get the cure out to all the sick vampires. But Kos can't deny what he feels for Lena and as he tries to fight it he finds himself helping her once again because he sends her off to be with another vampire but he is soon realizing it was a mistake. The hunters are out in full force and are recruiting more hunters and they have a hunter in this book that is ready and able and willing to take out a vampire at anytime in any place.
So what is Kos to do? What will happen between him and Lena when he learns of some secrets that have been kept from him? Will Kos let Lena serve him? Will the hunters get the vampires in the end? Another great read and I hope there are going to be more books because I truly love love this series!

Amber is an Episcopal Priest and student of religion. She believes stories are the best way to explore human truths. Some people think it is strange for a minister to write romance, but it is perfectly natural to her, because the human desire for love is at the heart of every romance novel and God made people with that desire.
