Shy nurse Cora both dreads and lives for the moments she sees Zeke, an orderly at the hospital where she works. Zeke is too handsome, too compelling, too much, and seems totally unaware of Cora. But before she can bring herself to his attention, an explosion rips through the hospital Christmas party.
Zeke has noticed Cora—in fact, he’s so irresistibly drawn to her that he saves her from the explosion by turning her into a vampire, much to the jealousy and resentment of his partner, Merrick. Zeke hates being a vampire, and now that she’ll live, doesn’t want Cora to suffer his fate. If they can both resist the overwhelming instinct to bond, joining their bodies as Cora draws her maker’s blood, she might be able to return to her normal human life.
As Merrick uses every erotic trick to keep Zeke distracted from the blood passion, Cora becomes more and more drawn to both of her reluctant captors. And more and more happy to abandon her old life in exchange for an eternity with two hot immortal lovers. All she has to do is convince Merrick and Zeke that being a vampire isn’t all that bad.
To be honest, I got this book because I am a fan of paranormal/vampire books. But I was left with a feeling of wanting.
While the story was interesting, and the twists that the author added about the vampires, I just couldn’t get into the book and felt like Merrick was a big aspect of that.
I did get that Merrick was trying to protect Cora, but his negative attitude throughout the whole story just ruined the book for me.
The sexy scenes in this book were done very well – but for me it wasn’t enough to “save” the book for me overall.
I’m sure that others will feel differently about this book, but I just couldn’t get into the story overall.
