BACK BLURB~ As a snowstorm locks down the city, more than the roads get iced. Someone has beheaded the wrong girl, and vampire-on-the-run Talia Rostova thinks the hit was meant for her. Now she’s the prime suspect in her own botched murder- and the prisoner of her smoking-hot neighbor.
Lore is a hellhound, bred to serve and protect, so he’s not freeing Talia until he’s sure that she’s the prey and not the hunter. You’d think a beautiful woman in his bedroom would be a good thing, but trouble-prone Talia has run afoul of someone more sinister than your average lunatic killer. An ancient Undead is wreaking vengeance on the city-and on her- and Lore will have to go far beyond a stake to put the killer back in his grave.
That is the blurb from the back of this insanely awesome book. It’s not the first of Ashwood novel I’ve read and it for sure won’t be the last. Usually, I don’t like stories that are told from more than one POV, but in this case it made the story. Sometimes, multiple POVs is a good thing. Other times: total chaos. This story starts uber strong, has steamy love scenes, plenty of action and keeps pace right up until the emotional yet rewarding conclusion. I spent a whole day with these characters and loved each and every one.
