I swore a solemn oath that saw to the end of the Cormacs, a family of hunters that persistently sought to rid my coven’s existence.

For years we have lived in the shadows, free from hunters and the weapons of wood that could destroy us.

But the familiar scent of Cormac blood is awakening my senses. We were certain that we had ended the bloodline. Now, the vow I swore plagues my mind. The guilt I harbour buries deep. The desire and lust burns.

My pledge to my family is now a promise to protect the woman I love.

Aurelia Galligan is a descendant of the Cormac bloodline. I should drain her. I have to destroy her. But she may just end me.

**This is a forbidden romance between the hunter and the hunted. It features smoldering vampires and no cliffhangers. The content is not suitable for readers under the age of 18**

Excerpt
Nolan: Did you handle the situation?

Julian: I’m on it. Soon.

Nolan: Remember what happened to your sister. They breed like rats. Let me take care of it.

Julian: No. I will take care of it. In the meantime, she’s mine to deal with.

Nolan: You’re playing with fire.

The text exchange haunted me as I tried to distract myself with this gorgeous woman.

Julian: Soon.

“I like this,” Lia’s voice was soft against my shoulder as we swayed to the music. The smoky ambience provided the perfect atmosphere, and at this late hour, I was ravenous. I tried to channel that hunger into a different direction as I asked about her hobbies and talents. All my questions were asked with a purpose- to determine whether she was a true threat or just a starry-eyed human who fell victim to my charms.

“I’m enjoying this as well,” I whispered against her neck, dipping her back so I could enjoy the sight of the ticking pulse in her neck. I breathed along her skin, and relished in the prickles of heat that flooded her neck and chest.

She let out a deep breath and curled her slender fingers in my hair- an action that surprised me.

As we discussed her college years and her hobbies, she told me she played T-ball and took dance classes as a child, and ultimately wanted to become a clinical counselor. I was relieved to conclude that she wasn’t a true Cormac threat, despite her bloodline. Her brother, on the other hand, I wasn’t sure about. The intense magnetic pull I felt toward her became stronger as the hours passed. The connection to her was both transfixing, yet haunting. Because I knew what I was going to have to do. Eventually.

The vow would see it through.

Review: The Dark Ones by Rachel Van Dyken

Title:  The Dark Ones

Series: Book 1 Dark Ones Series

Author: Rachel Van Dyken

Pages:  242 pages

Rating:  5/5 stars

Synopsis:

To touch a Dark One is death.
To talk to an immortal is suicide.
Yet, I’ve been marked by both.
A Vampire.
And the King of the immortals.
My life is no longer my own.
And now I know the truth, my life was never mine to begin with.
It was theirs.
It’s always been theirs.

Review:   Another fantastic read by Rachel Van Dyken!  Seriously, this woman can crank out the books.

The Dark Ones is the first in her new vampire/archangels/other mystical beings series.  In the first book we meet the new cast of characters – Ethan, Genesis, Stephanie, Mason, Alex and Cassius.  Book one is the story of Genesis and Ethan.  It’s a romance through and through with a dark paranormal spin.  We get the same quirky one-liners that are present in all her books along with danger, friendship, love, and a happily ever after.

I found myself not sure who to actually root for, but in the end, I was happy with the outcome.  This is different from the many paranormal romances out there.  Of course, no two paranormal books are alike, but in my opinion, this one is near the top of my favorites list.

This is part of a series, but does have a happily ever after.
