A setup so perfect… it might just be fate.
Radu Nicolae has spent centuries in a guilt-induced hibernation beneath the ruins of his family castle. The only time he awakens is to feast on the occasional vampire hunter. When Lillian Holmes invades his lair, trying to kill him for a crime he did not commit, he decides it is time to rejoin the world. As he feeds on the inept, but delectable hunter and sees her memories, he realizes that he is being used as a weapon to murder her. Radu does not like being used.
Agent Lillian Holmes, of the Abnormal Investigation Unit, is sent on a mission to kill the vampire who murdered her father. But when she tries to stake Radu, he awakens. When his fangs sink into her throat, she thinks she's a goner. To her surprise, she wakes up a prisoner. Furthermore, Radu did not kill her father. The AIU killed Joe Holmes and sent Lillian to Radu to die.
Together, they strike a bargain: Lillian will help Radu travel to the United States to reunite with his long lost twin brother. In return, he will help her take down the men who killed her father. As their relationship deepens on their journey, so does the danger. Not only must they keep government agents from finding out that Lillian is alive, but she also has a secret that will rock the foundations of the vampire world.

When we first meet Lillian Holmes, she is creeping her way through the family castle of Radu Nicolae, a more than 1,000-year-old vampire, under the mistaken assumption that he murdered her father. Determined to kill him, she is unprepared for how quickly he overpowers her and what starts as her ending up as food and his prisoner turns into something much more because, well, that's what we're here for.
Likes: Slightly different take on our usual assumptions about what vampires are (cold, dead, unfeeling); the different points of view work well to keep the story moving along as we are witness to what is happening in Idaho at the same time; the interactions between Lillian and Radu; I loved Lillian's science mind.
For the paranormal lovers, this story has it in spades. Add in an incredible secret or three, an ominous government entity out to do harm, and couples willing to do what it takes to more than survive, you have the makings of an all-around good fantasy story that happens to have a healthy dose of erotica just to keep things interesting.
UNLEASHING DESIRE by Brooklyn Ann is book 4 in the Brides of Prophecy series but serves as a standalone story.
