Hunger burns in Connie Bences' soul--she craves the blood of her vampire lover, Rurik, but it's not satisfying her needs anymore. It's driving her insane. Desperate to find help, Rurik brings her to Rio De Janeiro, where Tane rules the vampire nation.
The back-stabbing vampire almost killed her and Rurik when they'd first met, then used them to obtain his crown. She would rather stake him, but the small drop of Nosferatu blood he'd forced her to drink in Budapest is blooming into a bond, one which ties her life to his. One he won't hesitate to manipulate.
He admits to binding her so Rurik would have to remain at his side, but their timing couldn't be any worse. The betrayer finds himself betrayed. Tane's rule is in upheaval and he's forced to place his trust in two people who owe him no allegiance—her and Rurik. In the middle of a power struggle, Connie fights to keep her lover, but didn't plan on Tane slipping into her heart.

Which one will she choose: the man who has her heart or the man who has her soul? Connie "Rabbit" Bences' vampire lover, Rurik, has always satisfied her with his heart, body, mind and blood. But lately, his blood no longer hits the spot and leaves her hunger untamed. Rurik takes her to Tane, the Nosferatu ruler of the vampire nation, who nearly cost her and Rurik their lives.
Suspecting that there is more to their connection, Lukard, the power hungry Nosferatu, kidnaps Tane and Connie. It is then discovered that Connie is blood bound to Tane, and not Rurik. To keep them out of Lukard's grasp, and giving Connie access to Tane's blood, it's decided that she and Rurik move into the Tane's compound. Tane finds pleasure in manipulating and toying with Connie. However, he has a secret agenda. He has bound Connie to him in order to keep Rurik close, much to her chagrin.
When young, female bodies turn up dead in the city, Connie finds herself torn between her allegiance to Rurik and his kind and her old boss, Colby, head of a group of mercenary vampire hunters. Even though she hates Tane, Connie is drawn to him. He keeps her safe, and she is connected to him in a way that she cannot connect to Rurik. Another attempt on Tane's and Connie's lives puts the compound in lockdown. Her old boss, Colby, is the main suspect. However, it is revealed that the traitor is much closer.
This book had it ALL!!! There was love, lust, intrigue, suspense, jealousy and betrayal. I was so engrossed in this story, that I read it in record time. I loved the dynamic between the three main characters. I could totally understand why Connie was drawn to Tane who is so fierce and masculine. The friction between these two was absolutely magnetic. Her feelings for Rurik, who was so passionate and loyal, were so evident every time they were together.
Catch is the second book in The Angler Series. Yes, there was a back story between the characters that developed in the first book, but you could definitely read this book on its own. Ms. Nicholas has a knack for drawing the reader in with her well written, descriptive plots. I was riveted when she described the torture scenes at Lukard's hand. The end of this book was so spectacular that the emotions leapt off the pages. I was lost in this vampire world, and I loved it.
