As they embark on a mission to Hiroki’s homeland, he vows that he is going to make the vampire acknowledge what is happening between them, no matter what he has to do.

Review: This is book three in this series and you should read them in order.
I love paranormal stories especially when it brings romance to the table. Loxis had lost his mate years ago and was afraid to fall in love with. He just didn’t trust not to get hurt. He had decided to kill demons and help their victims. He thought that somehow this would fill his loneliness and heartache. Well that was until he saved a man who had been hurt by the demons. Hiroki was damaged. However, he wants the man who saved him.
Hiroki had been held by the demons, filled with pain and torture. He was scared of what was to come. He did want Loxis, the vampire that had saved him. Now all he had to do was get the vampire to go right along with him. He will do everything in his power to get Loxis to stop treating him like a fragile female and take him as his own. Loxis wants Hiroki also, but was he willing to take the chance on getting hurt again. How the mighty might just fall.
This is a really cute story. It takes a bit to get into it but once you get there you will find yourself falling in love with them. I love that they have the abilities to overcome all their pain and fears and to turn them into the gifts that they should have. I love it and can’t wait to read the next book in this series.
I would recommend this story to anyone who loves paranormal’s, vampires, sexy men, hot love and a bit of quirkiness. If you need a little bit of space to lose yourself in, I would recommend picking up this story and reading it. It is such a cute story that is beautifully written with the right amount of seriousness and humor. It lets you know just how much pain someone can take and still is able to fall in love again. Marie has an amazing gift at telling a story. I was glad to have a chance to read this story and will be checking out the rest of her books.
