Going back to her hometown was something Brie Lark swore she'd never do, but there's no way Brie can pass up helping FBI Special Agent Seb Rikare with his investigation into a series of murders. However, he's a vampire and Brie swore never to give another vampire a chance not after what her ex did. But the further into the investigation the pair get, the higher the risk of Brie getting hurt unless Seb can protect her. Will the pair be able to survive the danger closing in on them to achieve their happy ever after, or will the pair go their separate ways because they can't let go of what happened to them in their pasts?
It's been a while since I've read a book by Ms. Hughes, but I'm glad I chose to read this first book of her new series, because it was fantastically-written and a very entertaining read due to the enchanting main characters that face a good dose of danger during the investigation; and riveting dialogue that had me wanting to know whether these two could overcome the disasters of their past relationships to be together. The way this story started was exciting and certainly drew me into this story immediately, because of the discovery that's been made and whether Seb can find the person responsible for the killings. However, it was from the moment the hero and heroine come face-to-face for the first time that had me wanting to know more about Seb and Brie because it's palpable that the heroine doesn't think highly of vampires due to her ex? How long will it take Seb to win Brie over?
As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the investigation and the danger the hero and heroine face, as vampires can be quite deceptive and determined to get their way, no matter what they have to do. Moreover, the heroine is strong, brave and I liked how determined she was to help the hero, even when things became too dangerous. I also liked how she didn't give up on the hero, even though she's had a bad experience with a vampire in her past. Yet, what I liked most about the heroine was her willingness to face her past, even though Meiers Corner and vampires were two things she swore she's never have anything to do with again. While Seb, he's been through so much in his past with the danger he found himself in as a human and being turned into a vampire. However, he's resilient, courageous and I liked how determined he was to keep the heroine safe, even though she knows how to protect herself.
Overall, Ms. Hughes has penned a wonderful and enthralling read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was intense; the romance satisfying and full of passion that shows how good this pair are together; and the ending had me smiling because of what Seb does for the heroine that proves how much the hero wants Brie in his life, despite being adamant that love makes him weak. Really, how could he possibly think that when they're so good together? I would recommend Night's Caress by Mary Hughes, if you enjoy paranormal romance or books by authors Nina Croft, Shelly Laurenston, Mina Carter and Cynthia Eden.
