Description
Meet a savage hunter from the darkest jungles and the beautiful prey he'll never let escape in this sensual Carpathian novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan.
Rafael De La Cruz has spent centuries hunting vampires with his brothers, and with each passing year his capacity to feel emotions has grown weaker and weaker until finally there's barely even a memory left—until only sheer willpower keeps him from turning into the very abomination he hunts. But it'll take more than will to keep him away from the woman who is meant to be his and his alone...

For five years, rancher Colby Jansen has been the sole protector of her younger half-siblings, and with fierce determination and work she has kept her family together and the ranch operational. Now, the De La Cruz brothers are threatening that stability. They claim that her siblings belong with their father's family, not with her. Colby vows to fight them—especially the cold and arrogant Rafael De La Cruz. But Rafael is after more than her family—he wants Colby, and will not let anything stand between them. After ages of loneliness, the raw desire to possess her overwhelms his very soul, driving him to claim her as his lifemate.

        When the wealthy Brazilian Chevez family enlists the aid of the powerful Carpathian De La Cruz brothers to reclaim the children of a brother who had been cruelly disowned years earlier, Colby Jansen, the children's stepsister, is determined to prevent this action. But having recognized the fiery Colby as his lifemate, Rafael De La Cruze is not about to let anything keep them apart. A truly dangerous hero and an intrepid heroine who is more powerful than she knows are drawn together in the latest installment of Feehan's Carpathian vampire tales. Lush prose, stunning sensuality, and an emotional intensity that nearly sends the pages up in flames are classic features of Feehan's works and are here in full measure. Feehan (Hot Blooded) lives in Cobb, CA

        In what may be the most horrific of Feehan's Dark series, featuring the vampire-hunting Carpathians and the lifemates who save them from doom, a rancher fights to retain custody of her young siblings. Colby Jansen has been raising Ginny and Paul since her beloved stepfather, Armando Chevez, died, while running the ranch he left them. Disaster after disaster strikes; then, members of the Brazilian -Chevez family, along with two of the powerful De La Cruz brothers, for whom their family has worked for centuries, arrive to take the children and dispose of the ranch. Colby finds the handsome Rafael De La Cruz threatening but irresistibly attractive, and when an ancient and powerful vampire appears, Colby and Rafael combine forces. The erotic heat between Colby and Rafael turns scorching; Colby's unusual telekinetic and telepathic abilities open doors for future Carpathian adventures, and readers who love the horror aspects of the Dark series will revel in the scary demons and toothy serpents.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2005, American Library Association.)
