How much fight does one woman have inside?
Calla Hart has never relied on anyone. The fierce West Virginian learned the hard way to be self-sufficient, that is until she is viciously attacked late one night by two thugs. Her luck turns when, still fighting for her life, she is rescued from her attackers by a preternaturally strong stranger. She is stunned to discover that Severin Beauvais is not your typical alpha male hero. Although her pre-med student mind vehemently resists the notion, Calla must soon accept that he is a vampire, one who has stalked the historic grounds of Charleston, South Carolina, since the mid-eighteenth century. Their desire for each other is intense, yet as much as she'd like to envision happily ever after with Severin, too much stands in their way. Aside from her fragile mortality, there is Severin's extremely dominant personality coupled with his unending feud with the ancient Russian vampire Valdon, who has so far proved invincible.
And Valdon has set his sights on Calla ....
When it comes down to the wire, what would you sacrifice for the love of your life?

~this review may contain minor spoilers~
The instant I scented the sweetness of her blood, her fate was sealed. Never in my two hundred and fifty eight years as a vampire have I tasted anything even remotely close to the irresistible perfection of her blood.
When Calla is attacked late one night after work, she has no idea that the man who steps in and rescues her is about to change everything she knows. Even with the facts staring her in the face, like preternatural strength and speed, her logical pre-med mind has a hard time connecting the word vampire with the man standing before her... until he bites her. The connection they form is instant, the attraction intense, but exploring what they could have together is fraught with obstacles like say~Calla's pesky mortality. Everything gets put on the line, including their lives, when a long time enemy of Severin's sets his sights on Calla. What are they willing to risk to be together, and how can they possibly survive the Russian Vampire after them when he has proven to be nothing short of indestructible and determined as hell...
“I wish you had some concept of how desperate I am to taste you, Calla. How much I crave your lush sweetness in my mouth. I've wanted it since I had you pinned beneath me in the forest that first night when I scented you. I can't wait any longer. Know this... I won't hold back, I can't be gentle, but I promise that you'll love every minute of it.”
This isn't my first book by this author and so far she has yet to disappoint me. The things I looked forward to the most held true with this book as well; an intense, edge of your seat ride, tons of fantastic characters to hold your attention, and the steam factor is off-the-charts. This woman has a way with alpha males that always smacks me stupid and she writes some of the hottest sex scenes around; and that just ADDS to the already amazing journey she takes us on. There is definitely never a dull moment, the book takes off right from the word GO and doesn't let up until the very end, and we are always left salivating for more. Anytime I'm looking for an intense, sex-filled, dominating story; Christine Edwards is one of the first names that comes to mind and that is why she has cemented her spot on my One-Click-Addiction List with these men of hers. Severin, with his dirty mouth and handcuffs will hold a place in my fantasies for a long time to come.
I languish in the safety of his comforting hold. For in this flawless moment in time all the exterior worries of outside threats and stress seem both trivial and meaningless. Here, together, we are powerful and untouchable.
