Book Description:

The vampire, Roke, is raw, sensual, always in control. Yet somehow he’s allowed the unthinkable to happen: a nymph-like witch named Sally has used her magic to trick Roke into mating with her. The pair will remain bound for eternity unless Sally breaks the spell. The trouble is, she has no idea how. . .

Mating with Roke was an accident; at least that’s what Sally keeps telling herself. She’s on the hunt for her demon father, whose identity holds the key to releasing the spell. The search won’t be easy with Roke shadowing Sally’s every move. As they mate with a ferocity that leaves them both aching for more, Sally isn’t sure if her world is more dangerous without Roke—or with him. . .

My Take On The Book:

This book is so scorching it has the ability to make any grown woman blush and trust me, I did just that plenty of times.

Not only was it up there in the hot factor but it had just the right amount of mystery and intrigue that we as readers look for in a Paranormal book such as this. And lets not forget the action, as this book was definitely not short on that. Overall, it was a really good read. One of my favorite things about this book was the way you are introduced to the world the characters live in. While this is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone! All the characters are introduced and explained in a way that lets your get the gist of their story while not giving away too much info or boring long time readers of the series. I personally can’t wait to get my hands on more from this series as I am already a long time fan of author Alexandra Ivy.

It's also safe to say that while I loved Sally and her spunk, I wanted a Roke of my own lol. The characters in this book where so well crafted, their reactions and decision so realistic that they seemed almost tangible.

If you feared that vampire books were dead (no pun intended) then fear no more. Pick up a copy of this book and let the talented Ms. Ivy prove you wrong.


About The Author 


I'm not exactly sure when I fell in love with books. Probably on my mother's knee listening to her read Dr. Seuss to me. I do remember that I was barely old enough to cross the street by myself when I discovered the delights of the local library. Could anything be more wonderful than spending summer days surrounded by stacks of Nancy Drew mysteries? Over the years I fell in love with Victoria Holt, Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, and J.R.R. Tolkien just to name a few. I read poetry, essays, biographies, and plays. In fact, I read anything I could get my hands on.

Years later (no, I'm not admitting how many) I'm still an avid reader, and my tastes are still as varied as they were in my youth, which I suppose helps to explain why I enjoy writing regency historicals under the name of Deborah Raleigh, as well as my contemporary paranormals as Alexandra Ivy. For now that is enough to keep me busy, but who knows what the future might hold!

I do have a few other loves in my life besides reading and writing, the most important being my unbelievably patient husband, David, and my two sons, Chance and Alexander. Without their constant support and belief in me, I never could have been able to follow my dreams. They are truly my heroes.
