This is the best book in the series so far. Once again, another powerful Carpathian male discovers his lifemate. This time it is Lucian, Gabriel's twin. His lifemate is Jaxon - a tough, no-nonsense police officer. Several of the plot devices made sense to me. One, Lucian "stalks" her before making her aware of his presence - learning what he can about her rather than just walking in, stating that she is his lifemate and demanding that she fall in line. Two, she reacts like a normal human to him - she threatens to shoot him! I liked the fact that although he is very powerful, she is no shrinking violet. I also just loved hearing more about Carpathain history and how it is that Lucian was able to hold off the "darkness" in himself longer than any other Carpathian male.
The tale of the policewoman and a carpathian just about boggles the mind. How would two very strong willed people make it. Will he give up? Or will his old world charm win out?? Or will she bend him to her will. With the tales of the carpatians you will never know till the end. Christine Feehan will keep you on the edge of you seat. So curl up and enjoy . I sure do.
