Eternal Seduction (A Darkness Within, #1)
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

"testosterone driven penile fever"

This book was fantastic. The author took everything I've come to expect form the typical PNR read and flipped it inside out and upside down. We all know the "typical" drill. Girl spies sexy, brooding, mystery man and heart goes pitter patter. Said mystery man can't risk the fragile human and fights how he's drawn to her but must protect her at all cost while waxing poetic in her ear while doing a poor job keeping the stuborn human at arms length. Sound familiar? Well, Eternal Seduction is is like that....but on crack. OR...should I say heroine?

Our heroine (Logan)is a heroin addict. Point blank, no sugar coating, she's a mangy addict who pretty much does'nt give 2 shits about the world around her. That being said, wether she cares or not does'nt blind her to her surroundings. As a homeless addict wondering the NYC streets at all hours, Logan is bound to see more than she's supposed to.

Enter Kerestyan Nelek, the vampiric Lord of NYC who must keep his city safe. Humans are'nt to know what lurks the streets while they sleep. Yet here's this little addict that knows way beyond what any human should be allowed to know. Such knowledge usually means death but he can't quite make up his mind. He's baffled because while death looms, Logan can't be bothered. Her "meh...whatever." attitude is something his ancient mind can't fathom.

The two leads in this book are so well written with fantastic chemistry. This is'nt your typical love story. The banter between the two, the somewhat role reversal in some aspects is truly refreshing. The sex scenes sizzle and "K" is sexy vamp personified.

Lord Kerestyan comes from the very powerful Nelek family. In this installment, we are introduced to siblings and his father. My favorite being twin brother Odin. Odin is such a powerful character. He's a scene stealer and I hope that he gets his own book somewhere along the line. He's strong, powerful and has not an ounce of tact. He truly had me laughing out loud throughout the entire book. That's not to say he's a cartoon of a character. Odin is very protective of his twin and will not tolerate anything less that what "K" deserves. Just don't call him Greek. Ever. Serious. :)
