Rayvin Woods, photographer and natural witch. She just wanted to start her life over again after a series of misadventures. She didn’t count on rekindling a lost love when she came home to Talbot…or battling a malevolent vampire and his coven for her life.
Grant Michaels, police officer. He thought Rayvin was a murderer. He will do whatever it takes to protect the community he loves from danger…but will he learn to trust his heart, and the word of a witch, before it’s too late?
Malcolm de Sade, cunning vampire, imprisoned underground for a year by Charlotte Fanning and Pike Mahonen (“Mist and Midnight”, Midnight Thirsts). His accidental release unleashes his hunger and ambition on a small, sleepy town…
I received and ARC copy in exchange for an honest review.
Rayvin hasn’t had the easiest life. Her mother died while she was young, and she was pretty much ran out of her home town after a tragic accident that she was blamed for. But after having another speed bump thrown into her life, she is left with no other option than to go back to the home town she promised she’d never go back to.
Of course the first person Rayvin sees when she gets back into town is the one man she’s never really been able to forget. She has always had this weird connection with the new town sheriff Grant Michaels that she’s always tried to fight, but this time, it seems that the connection is even stronger than before.
Since Rayvin has come back into town, there have been strange things happening. Grant isn’t sure what to think about the beautiful woman who has come back into his life. After strange events come into play and bring these two together, will he be able to forget about the past?
Once they finally give in to temptation, there is a kink in their reunion (of course right?) Now there is a sexy vampire to add to the mix. Malcolm de Sade is ready for his revenge after being imprisoned, and the one thing he needs is a powerful witch. This is where Rayvin comes in to play (but you already guessed that 🙂 ) The cat and mouse game they play leads us all the way up to the cliff hanger ending. It definitely leaves you dying to know what happens next.
I really enjoyed reading this, I love it when a book leaves you clues throughout and has you guessing what’s going to be happening next. Tori L. Ridgewood does a fantastic job of give you a thrilling read with some steamy scenes. I can’t wait to see what happens next with all the characters!
