Sorin is a vampire who uses energy instead of blood to maintain his life force; he has long since given up on pursuing any real life for himself. Energy from his small Brownie servant/friend, Grigore, simply isn’t enough to keep him going. He has become so weak that merely walking has become a chore for him.
Gia, an alpha werewolf from a nearby pack, shows up on his doorstep asking for his help. Sorin is instantly attracted to her, though he doesn’t understand why, since he, a consummate gentleman in every way, has always held himself above werewolves with their beastly ways.
Gia asks for his help to hide her from the pack during the three days of the full moon in order to avoid Aphrodite’s hunt. Her pack, sick of her weak and traitorous mate has asked Aphrodite for help in finding Gia an appropriate mate by bringing on the Hunt. So, for the three days of the full moon, Gia will be attracted to all werewolf males strong enough to be her mate. She wants to avoid having a mate thrust upon her, so she believes she can avoid the werewolf mating ritual by hiding at Sorin’s house for the duration.
Sorin has a dark history he hasn’t shared with the people in the area, so Gia may have bitten off more than she can chew.
Jennifer Blackstream has no problem keeping this story scorching hot. In addition to the very passionate sex, there is an interesting story line that is compelling, main characters that are developed and extremely interesting, and the possibility of a follow-up on the story line, if the author chooses. Blackstream has an easy writing style with few issues that interrupt the narrative flow.
