Phoebe Allen lives in Broken Heart. She’s a vampire and has a young son. The father is human, and right now her son is spending time with him. Good job too, as Phoebe is about to jump into the adventure of her life. Connor is a Scottish hottie who heats her up like no oven can do. She can’t breathe, but he leaves her breathless. Thing is, Connor has used deception to bond himself with her. He swears it’s to protect her and that he loves her. It is all about a prophecy, but Phoebe learns that choices can be made. Connor will protect her with his life, but is Phoebe ready to stay bonded to the Scottish hottie? Phoebe has her hands full. She is kicking Demon butt, she’s being kicked by Demons. Demons are attacking her friends. Demons want her dead. Yep, being a Demon hunter can be a pain sometimes, especially when a prophecy is involved and a mad ├╝ber-demon is after you.

Oh, this is really my kind of book. I loved it! And it looks like there are more books about Broken Heart and its residents. I have got to get them and I hope this talented author is planning lots more. Phoebe and Connor are just great together. They really need each other and I was on the edge of my seat rooting for them both to not only beat the Demon, but to also get things straight between them. The sexual tension fairly sizzles along with all the magic going on. I now have a new hero to drool over, Connor! There were lots of secondary characters that move the story along and give life and depth to the story. There is also lots of blood and guts being thrown around and some really, emotional, sensual love scenes that will certainly curl your toes. This is a roller coaster of a read that left me panting for more. I’m off to Amazon to order more books in this series.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
