Okay; not a page turner but a comfortably-paced read.
Second in a series which I've truly enjoyed. They are keepers for me, but I had two of this title. Paranormal romance involving vampires who walk in the sunlight. (and who are, of course, yummy)
I really enjoy this series! This is the second book in the series. It took me awhile to get into this one. Overall, it was an enjoyable read.
Exciting vampire romance. Steamy too but not too much. Good plot and I really liked the characters, especially Marcus Cage who has escaped an experimental lab and abducts Josephine to use her car. He also needs her help but never explains to her clearly what he was running from. This leads to misunderstanding whereby Jo unwittingly gets Marcus recaptured. I found myself getting angry at this womens' naivete, that she just believes the story of Marcus' breakdown from a man who tells her he works for the government. Overall though, I found this book, "sexy, exciting, and just plain thrilling....An utterly engaging new world" as written on the back cover.
The series just keeps getting better! Number 2 in the prime series didn't dissapoint! I couldn't put the book down!
good romantic paranormal suspense
2nd book and still has your attention.
Good read. I liked the characters, and the storyline was good too. Author didn't delve too far into the torment of the hero, which I thought would have made the story even better.
Sexy book. Can not wait to read the next one.
Another totally awesome Sizemore vampire story
Much better than the first book. I really liked this one.
The start of her vampire series. Josephine is just enjoying a little quiet time camping in the desert. Marcus, wounded and desperate to evade the enemies who want to destroy him and his kind is willing to use anyone to escape and warn his clan. Its just a little snack he needs from Josephine's neck, and her car, and her cooperation. But can he earn her trust in time?
Can stand alone or be read with the others in the series.
good for when you're in the mood for quick fluff. Good story, good characters.
Really enjoyed this book.
Loved the 2nd story of trilogy. SS just gets better each book.
Loved this book! Very suspenseful and exciting vampire love story.
This book was ok. It is not my favorite of series so far. But I read Primal Heat first, then I Burn For You, now this one. I love the series. This book is not bad, its just not anything to rave about either. BUT I am glad I read it because it further familiarizes you with the nature and family dynamic of the vampires.
After escaping the clutches of the mad scientists obsessed with learning the secrets of immortality, Marcus finds himself in the desert, weak and thirsty for blood. Using his remaining strength to scan his environment for possible supplement, he was shocked to feel the presence of a woman - not just any woman, but his possible bondmate.
As the only survivor of the plane crash on which she was the pilot, Jo Elliott has kept on her own. But while the guilt was enough to drive anyone mad, the fact that she is an Empath adds to her burden, remembering how she felt everyone's fear as they slowly plunged into their death. While out camping on her own one night, little did she know that she would end up being held prisoner. But strangely, there was a connection with her captor that is so undeniable that she knew that things would never be the same for either of them.
another story set in the vampire world started in I Burn for You. Vampire Marcus is on the run and captures Josephine, an empath. exciting, sexy, but for me, not thoroughly engaging.
As with the 'I Hunger For You' this is a spin off of some of the characters from that book and it is just as well written. One of the better books I have read in awhile.
Strong characters, believable dialogue, and sizzling chemistry between hero and heroine.
Not as good as the others in this series. The relationship development was really good but not a lot actually happens in the story.
This book was a great read, I couldn't put it down. I can't wait to see the next book this author puts out.
The hero Marcus is a vampire, captured and tortured. He escapes and finds Josephine. Because he's been tortured, he spends the first three quarters of the book in a constant state of blood hunger/thirst, not to mention lust, because Josephine's his mate.
Aside from the blood hunger and lust for his mate, and Josephine's empathy, the entire story was remarkedly like any para-military/action romance. There was very little interaction with other people, or exploration of vampiric culture. In the prequel, I Burn For You, there is an excursion into vampire society, and getting to know other vampires and the culture.
In this book, they run and hide, hardly speaking to anyone else, meet one other vampire at the end, and that's it. In the epilogue, it's mentioned that the heroine was brought home to meet the rest of the vampire family, but apparently that wasn't interesting to actually let the reader read what happened. It wasn't until hundreds of pages in that the reader learns anything about the complex vampire culture, so the first few hundreds of pages is just like an action romance.
This is an awesome series.
Frist in her vampire series. Interesting, captavating, and the plot moves very well.
From the back cover ..."He appears out of the dark desert night - a huge, dangerous stranger who sparks desire and fear in her like she's never known. Josephine Elliot knows only that her captor's name is Marcus Cage, and that he's on the run." Awesome story with werewolf theme.
I've read a couple of Susan Sizemore's Vampire novels and they seem to have the same premise. I wish the novel's varied a little bit more, but I still enjoy reading her books. I love reading books about men on the brink of being lost who inevitably come back because of the love of a good woman.
When Marcus escapes a testing facility the last thing he thought would happen was that he'd find his lifemate. Still, even though he's found her at the worst possible time, he's not about to let her go.... unless it's for her own good. On the run and trying to survive might not be the perfect time to woo your mate, but hey a man has to work with what he's got and Josephine Elliott isn't putting up much of a fight.
This story was great on many fronts. It was a quick and easy read, the characters and plot were easy to follow and Susan Sizemore does a great job of introducing the next book at the end. If you like Vampire novels then this is a good one to try.
He appears out of the dark desert night-a huge dangerous stranger who spzrks desire and fear in her like she's never known.
He appears out of the dark desert night-- a huge,dangerous stranger who sparks desire and fear in her like she's never known. Josephine Elliot knows only that her captor's name is Marcus Cage,and that he's on the run. But who is chasing him, and why? Is Marcus protecting her by taking her hostage... or is he planning to use her to buy his own freedom? And why,above all, is she so inexorably drawn to him?
Marcus is overwhelmed by his thirst for Josephine and instantly recognizes her as his soulmate. Despertly trying to evade enemies intent on destroying him and his kind, Marcus has no choice but to take Jo on the run. But when she unwittingly betrays him to his enemies, both are thrust into mortal danger. Can their newfound love survive her deceit and spare them a dark fate?

Didn't get to this one, had to sift out the ole to read pile.
