Description from Amazon.com:
Born and raised to be an emotionless killing machine, Nathan is one of the most lethal Breed vampires in existence. A key member of the Order—an elite group of warriors charged with protecting both mortals and vampires—Nathan executes each mission with flawless precision and a total lack of mercy. Now he must pursue a powerful, hidden enemy. But Nathan’s hard discipline and training are no match for the fierce pull he feels toward a young woman he has no right to desire—a woman of wealth and high social standing who has long been promised to another Breed male, and who may also prove to be the key to rooting out Nathan’s elusive quarry. Jordana lives a life of glittering privilege as a member of a prominent Breed family in Boston. Surrounded by fine things and fawning admirers, Jordana wants for nothing—until she crosses paths with a dark, intense warrior from the Order and finds herself swept into an impulsive, sizzling kiss that neither of them will forget. As much as she tries to deny her deep feelings for Nathan, Jordana cannot resist the craving to be near him, to break through his forbidding walls and see the man he truly is. But getting close to Nathan will thrust Jordana into a treacherous new world, forcing her to risk all she has and all she knows about herself and her past. And loving this seductive man could be the most dangerous temptation of all.
Yes, this is number twelve in this series and Lara Adrian is not afraid to give us new directions with each new addition and the smoking hot sexual tension once again rocks this series.
The setting is Boston where Breed Vampires live semi-amicably with humans. The Order are Breed Warriors who protect both the Breed and humans. Nathan is a key cog in the Boston Order, he has a tragic past that makes him feel he can’t have a relationship with Jordana. Jordana is a high profile Breedmate who is undeniably attracted to Nathan. From eyes across a crowded room to unplanned encounters they both fight their attraction. Along with this smoldering tension, Nathan is locked into an investigation of utmost importance to the breed as well as mankind. There is a new threat that is looking to take over the world and the order is charged with finding all of the terrorists.
I have followed this series from the beginning, it never fails to give me hours of reading enjoyment but this book was even harder to put down. I was turning pages way into the wee hours to find out if Jordana was going to be safe. There are surprises along the way. The romance is truly the best written in this genre.
You will not be sorry if you read this entire series; well written, excellent story line, lots of sizzling sex, what more could a PNR fan ask for?
