Alexandra Carlton, Alex to her friends, the only girl born into a family of vampire hunters with strict rules. She lives and hunts by the Code. Despite insecurities and self-esteem issues about her appearance, she eagerly tracks a rogue vamp carrying a contagious virus, deadly to vampires and humans alike, to prove her worth, to her family and herself.

Alex meets Stefan Marin, a brooding 500 year old vampire. He helps her not only on her quest but tames her wildest passions and discovers the true beauty within her, the beauty he can't help but fall in love with.

Together, Alex and Stefan break all the rules uncovering more than a virus—hot sex, an uptight FBI Special Agent, spanking, hot sex, a nosy, meddling brother, more hot sex, bondage and submission, murder, and bad vampires.

Will their love survive the wild side they were born to live?

Ever wondered what it would be like to be a vampire bounty hunter?

Alexandra Carlton knows. And being the baby girl of the family makes her job all the harder. She's tracking a vampire carrying a deadly virus that threatens vampires and humans alike. This is her first solo case, and she intends to prove she's as capable as her brothers—even if she has to work with a vampire enforcer to do it.

After following a lead to Atlanta, Alex checks out the local vampire bars and meets Stefan Marin. He is a gorgeous, brooding, sex-on-a-stick vampire (aren't they all?), and she is drawn to him immediately. Despite the ten Rules of Engagement her family drilled into her head, she can't stop her growing attraction for the off-limits vampire.

Stefan, having become bored with everything, decides life might be worth sticking around for after meeting Alex. As they work together to discover the identity of the rogue vampire, they can't keep their hands off each other. Within days and some mind-blowing sex, an incredible bond forms between them.

The investigation continues. Alex and Stefan struggle to define their relationship, work with a hunky FBI agent (love those men in suits!), resolve dysfunctional vampire "family" issues, and still gather proof against the mastermind behind the deadly virus. Wow, that's a lot of obstacles to overcome!

I love the premise of this story. An action-packed plot pulls the reader along on the hunt for the bad guy. The growing attraction and steamy sex keeps you pulling for Alex and Stefan. (Have a fire extinguisher nearby for the sex club scene!)

I would have liked more background on Stefan and why he'd become so apathetic toward living. It might have helped me understand his debasing sexual encounter with his ex. That scene left me disappointed in Stefan.

BORN TO BE WILD is an entertaining story. It just didn't resonate with me.
