My slave’s betrayal should have been the end of us—it’s not. Now that Tessa’s been changed into a vampire and is ready to take Hunter as her own, I refuse to give up. She loves me. With my blood remaining within her, it’s only a matter of time before she’s faced with the truth.
But where does that leave Tessa with her future slave? Hunter is only beginning to see our world and soon he’ll realize that Tessalyn isn’t who he thinks her to be.
No one is.
One by one, true colors will be revealed. Will Hunter accept this life and give in? Will I get Tessa back? Or will Axis grant Sayer residence to them both?
Book three in the Marko Delacroix series, Lure picks up where Blood Bound left off. I highly suggest reading the books in order because they do not work as standalone stories. Told from Hunter, Marko, and Tessa’s POVs, Lure kept me on the edge of my seat and wanting more! Sayer has turned Tessa and realizes, too late, that she is more than he can handle. Marko is reeling from the betrayal of Tessa and Hunter. How could his love do that to him? Tessa is feeling conflicted because even though Sayer is her maker, Marko’s powers are still within her and make her as strong as ever!
Lure is much darker than the previous two books. But, the storytelling is done in such a way that the reader can’t help but want more. It’s like watching a train wreck! Sayer’s true colors begin to show when Marko’s powers increase and his bond with Tessa can’t be broken as easily as Sayer had hoped. I really loathed Marko in the last book, but my feelings for him began to change as his love for Tessa showed. Just when I thought he was a bad guy, the depth of his feelings changed all of that! Hunter is a character that I wasn’t sure about, but even he grew on me within this story. As for Tessa? I felt sorry for her and all of her pain. Such conflict and inner struggles must be horrible to deal with, not to mention having Sayer beat her down and her one true love kept away. I absolutely need the next book in this series!! I can’t wait to get more of these characters!!
