PASSION RULES IN DARKNESS.
Jenner is a newly turned vampire who stalks the night like a wild beast of prey, hunting and feeding his appetites with a string of willing women…and always wanting more. Nothing can satisfy the aching hunger that burns inside him—until he crosses paths with a beautiful, innocent vampire who sets his soul on fire.
Bria has never been able to escape the confines of her uncle’s home. But when the smolderingly sexy Jenner saves her—and promises to be her bodyguard—Bria is brought to a dark world of dangerous, insatiable desire. But once they feed upon each other, they expose themselves to an evil that they never saw coming…and now there’s no turning back. Will they divide and conquer—or stay together and lose it all to lust?
Great vampire story!
I'm a sucker for a good vampire story and the best part is, this not only have vampires but also witches, shifters and a even fae. Jenner, the Hero, has my favorite characteristics. He's strong, fierce, cold and possessive. Bria, while having been shelter most of her life, has an innocence to her but she is also very strong and fierce. She was a great counterpart to Jenner. While I hated that the first half of the book Jenner kept Bria at arms length, once he let his guard down was also when the story really picked up. I have not read the first two books in the series, however, I loved all the characters and will definately go back and read them.

What’s not to love about a dark, handsome, broody vampire?
What’s not to love about a dark, handsome, broody vampire? Whew he was something! This is the first time I have read this author and this is book three in the Last True Vampire series. You could read this as a standalone, as I was able to read it with very little question as to what was going on. I think I would have liked to have read the other two books prior, but it is not necessary, as each book deals with one particular couple. There is a good supporting cast of characters and good character development. There are good witches, dark magic performed by bad witches, shifters, faes, and forces trying to get rid of the paranormal beings. If you are a fan of J.R. Ward Black Dagger Brotherhood, which I am, then you will enjoy this book and I am sure the series.
Bria was brought up being extremely sheltered for her own safety, but she craved the outside world and would sneak out to escape the confines of her coven, not knowing the dangers lurking. There is an uprising to eradicate the dhampir covens and Bria is near death and is brought to the Vampire King to be saved. Bria is turned from a dhampir to a vampire. This is where it really gets interesting!!
Eric Jenner (goes by Jenner) is passionate in all things and the ultimate consumer of sex, blood, and danger. He does not trust himself because of unfortunate circumstances as a young dhampir dealing with bloodlust. He is made out to be out of control and he lives that role to the fullest. He is an enforcer for the King and upon his entrance to the Kings home, he is hit with bloodlust and the possessive “mine” feeling in his guts. He is immediately tethered to Bria as she is to him. They have a bond that is immediate and absolute. Jenner wants to consume Bria sexually and take blood from her vein, but he doesn’t trust himself with her, for he fears he will destroy her.
Bria and Jenner have power struggles and growing pains as a couple. Their chemistry is off the charts! At times I was so angry at Jenner for not trusting his mate, but I could see it from his viewpoint as she was the love of his life and he needed to protect her at all costs. There are family dynamics involved, there is a bit of betrayal and lots of intrigue and secrets. Jenner grows to find his mate is just as much his equal and is stronger than he ever could have imagined.
If you love a good love story, broody vampires and strong heroines then this is the book for you. I highly recommend you give it try!
