Description from

He needs the blood of either his mate or a human virgin to maintain his strength, but hasn’t enjoyed the ritual since he lost his mate centuries ago. Kael doesn’t want a new companion, yet his resolve is tested when he lays eyes on his new offering, Shayla McKinnon. He is drawn to Shayla’s beauty and poise…and the submission she offers. She is eager to give him anything he wishes, including her innocence, to please him. Will Kael give in to their overwhelming desire — even if it means risking Shayla’s life? Novella length ~90 pages


Ever since I read and loved Laura Kayes’s novella, HEART’S IN DARKNESS, I have wanted to read more by this author.  I did read her NORTH OF NEED, but then didn’t pick up anything until this novella was recommended.

I was not blown away by this novella.  The characters lacked a depth that I needed to involve myself in their story. I am a Paranormal Romance fan and this offering just didn’t live up to my expectations.  The writing was good.  Laura Kaye can write sizzling sex and for that it rates high also.  I am interested in giving another novella in this series a read since I do enjoy Ms. Kaye’s writing.  This novella was an okay read but Ms. Kaye has written better.
