Nice short read but there was not much in it. The focus of the story was rescuing Ethan's mate who was suffering from leukemia but who was in fact dying because she was still unmated to her vampire. No one lived to be unmated beyond thirty. Ethan was a 500-year old vampire who was also struggling to withhold his mating tendencies which Brianna might not survive in with her weakened state. I liked the plot but blanched at some of the juvenile thoughts coming from an ancient vampire. There was an excerpt of the second book about the other Hale brother Rory finding his own mate and it seemed more interesting than this one.
