On the run from a mental institution and her vindictive half-brother, it’s safe to say that Sarah Pringle’s happy life as a schoolteacher is on hold. Too bad that as far as self-defense goes, “run and hide” is the best she’s got. And with the monsters that started her escape hot on her heels, that’s not going to cut it for long…
That is, unless Sarah has a bigger, badder, hotter monster on her side. Max Petrovsky is right at the top of the list of alpha male ass-kickers. And he knows exactly what Sarah’s up against. Good thing, because the minute he sees her something primal kicks in, turning everyday attraction into red-hot desire. As long as they’re cooperating, why not mix some pleasure with business? Of course, Max should probably tell Sarah he’s a vampire himself.
Oh, Max. If you aren’t already in love with Jane’s protector/body guard from the previous stories, you will be after this story. We get a peek into how he became like family to the Kayr’s brothers, how he came to be Jane’s protector, and how he finds his mate.
This is a short story, so it moves fast. I’d say it wouldn’t do as well as a standalone because you should already have an understanding of the different paranormal families in this world. But, if for some reason you want to read this book without reading the previous books, you’ll still feel the connection between Max and Sarah. You’ll still feel the camaraderie these soldiers have for one another. You’ll still know that Max and his group are morally on the right side.
I’m really hoping to see more of Max and Sarah together in the future books in this series. They are both such honorable and good people.
