    Opening Line: “He was growing hungry for the night”I BURN FOR YOU was an okay read. I mean I won’t be rushing out for the rest of the series or anything but it did have its moments. It’s the first book from Susan Sizemore’s Prime series (which is also available in the omnibus Crave the Night) Providing us with yet another unique take on Vampire romance. I have to say though that I enjoyed the world building here and for the most part, as a first-book-in-series it wasn’t overwhelmed with huge info dumps but explained gradually throughout.Our hero is of course Vampalicious; dreamy, tortured and seriously alpha or “The Prime” as his chest beating manliness is explained as here. There are interesting secondary characters and some funny dialogue and I enjoyed the premonitions/dreams aspect from our heroine as well as the mind melding process our couple went through. The love scenes are steamy enough but nothing special, which was how I felt about the romance in general -nothing that I’ll remember for very long. My only true complaint (other then the blahness) was the abrupt ending, with several loose ends left hanging and a general feeling of what? That’s it? Still there’s way worse paranormal romance out there. Alec Reynard is battling his inner demons and true vampire self. Undergoing secret medical treatments that allow him to go out in the daylight and live among humans. Alec keeps himself on a very tight leash and everything seems to be going according to plan until he feels the call of his “Bond Mate” She brings out the beast in Alex and suddenly his cocktail of drugs isn’t working so well anymore, hence the recent sunburn and aggression issues he‘s been experiencing. Domini Lancer works at her grandfather’s security company as a bodyguard. She’s experienced premonitions her entire life and has grown used to the occasional weird dream. Lately though these dreams have been taking on a life of their own, filled with erotic visions of sex, blood and a man she doesn’t know. And now that voice in her head is there even when she’s awake, compelling her to buy peaches and go places she’s not entirely comfortable with.So while Domini doesn’t yet know what she is or the danger this places her in Alec as her soul mate and The Prime is driven to protect her. Taking a job at the old man’s company he’s soon teamed up with Domini on their latest security detail. (Hmm mind influence anyone) As the darkness seizes him there is nothing Alec won’t do to keep Domini safe… And claim her as his own.

    Alrighty!! Got my hands on the first Prime book, so let's start this off right! (Since I've already read the third book,lets do the series the way a series is meant to be done, starting with the first and ending with the last!) Let me get some reading done and I'll be updating this little review!Ok, almost half way through, and I am liking this one very, very, very much!! This book doesn't rush into the story right off the bat, it takes it's time. It doesn't jump into things and the charaters, Alec and Domini, are very mature. Working together is driving them both up the wall, but it's only because the passion they are both denying each other builds a mountain of sexual frustration. I've had my nose in this book and I'm very happy with the way the story unfolds.I have finished the book and all I have to say is wow! This was much better, I love the fact that vampires are used to protect humans not just use them for food. They are brought up to take vows and dedicate their life to watching over humans. It's like any other romance novel, but different from any vampire novel. This story took its time, we get to know Alec and Domini, we discover the passion that drives the two to become one. His need for her is something she can't understand at first, but when she comes to terms...look out! The only thing that prevented me from giving this one a full 5 stars is the ending took me by surprise, I thought there would have been a little bit more to the book. But all in all, great story.

    I was disappointed in this book right off the bat...never a good sign. I was so bothered by the fact that the author used Alec as a nickname for Alexander not to mention numerous grammatical errors and poor word usage. Does Susan Sizemore NOT have an editor? How did this ever get published in the first place?? Clearly, I will be continuing with this series.That said, let me sum it all up for you. It's the story of Alec and Domini. Alec is a vampire prime who has chosen to live in the daylight. To do this he has to take quite a few daylight drugs to enable this to happen. He has done this with enough frequency spanning quite a number of years so that earned a post as a Colonel in the Army. However, the drugs are not longer working properly. He has built up some sort of tolerance to them which causes problems. Domini is a tough private security officer who also happens to have visions and lives in fear of her Grandfather. Once Alec and Domini meet, can't stay aware from each other, blah blah blah you know where I am going with this because it was SO formulaic that you have already read this book listed under about a thousand other titles. Usually this doesn't deter me, however, those other books have been more well written and had far better dialogue. For example, calling Alec a "d-boy" makes me wonder if the author bothered with any research at all. Has she ever actually MET anyone who was in the special forces? None of the special ops servicemen I have met refer to themselves in such a ridiculous manner.The love affair and consequent bond was completely forced, almost as if the author was running down a "How to write a cheese vampire romance" checklist. This really made me yearn for the books that first get you into the the plot and storyline where you felt like there was a relationship forming. In this book, the two main characters meet and less than five seconds later one of them is thinking or saying "I love you" - it's all a bit too quick even for love at first sight. You need that development, even for the fantasy world that these books take place in. What was most disappointing is that you'd assume that if they were so immediate with the "I love yous" that the author would at least make up for that in the bedroom...don't be fooled! I would read those "steamy" scenes and then think to myself..."Really? That's it? That was lame." I'm so glad I got this book for free as it is not worth the paper it was printed on.

    The first book in a new series – vampire “Primes”. If you like your vampire males, the alpha driven testosterone types, dark and brooding, this series is for you. For me it was a change from the humorous paranormal romances that I usually read. A nice balance for me to switch back and forth from.Now on to the scathing review. Having started out reading the 6th ,and last, book in the series, Primal Desires, I enjoyed it enough to buy the other books in the series. I was, however, rather disappointed in the first book. Not so much with the story itself, and the initial background of the main characters, but with the tempo of the book. I give Sizemore brownie points for getting the two main characters interacting with each other on a verbal level by the end of the 2nd chapter. But to frustrate the reader until the book was more than half over with before they got together body -to-body, in that the writer lost points. Granted there was a lot of psychic/sexual mind dreams going on. And to be blunt they were described and played out a lot better then the actual in-the-flesh scene which I thought was poorly written, to quickly delivered, and seem to be tossed in at the last minute. Maybe the editor was having a bad day and had Sizemore cut more than she should have. Who knows, anyway, unless you are curious about Primes and their medical treatment/condition you can easily skip this book and move on to the next in the series, I Thirst for You, which definitely puts your faith back into the author as a vampire romance writer. If I hadn’t read Primal Desires first I doubt I would have gone any farther than the 1st book, and would have missed out on a good series in the making.

    I was really excited to read this book, since I had heard so many good things about it. Unfortunately, for me this book ended up being mostly a lot of build-up, and not much else.The chemistry between Alec and Domini was great for the first half of the story, but then things went downhill very quickly. The first 200 pages were a blistering build-up to when these two characters would finally hook up. But when they did, the scenes fell flat and the previous chemistry almost completely disappeared.The rest of the plot was a little too predictable, and the last third of the book moved rather slowly. All in all, I was hoping for a lot more.

    I was disappointed in this book right away. However, I managed to get beyond the fact that the author used Alec as a nickname for Alexander enough to finish the book. With all of the other grammatical errors and poor word usage - I do not think I will be continuing with the series.

    Prime Alexander Reynard and clairvoyant security specialist Domini Lancer met in a dream. A dream so vivid, Domini tried to duplicate it when she awoke. Domini has always been able to tell the grandfather that raised her anything. But she definitely doesn't want to tell him everything about her dreams lately. They're too often erotic but there are a few things she can share. Alec thinks the dreams have to do with his personalized cocktail to keep his vampire metabolism immune to traditional taboos and keep him from going feral. Domini isn't certain she isn't losing her mind though things are too vivid to be imagination. Alec is hired by Domini's grandfather and assigned to her team. Their first assignment has the pair working with others to guard her famous childhood friend.Domini is accosted when she goes searching for Alec after one of her vivid dreams and again on assignment. Each time the strangers mention a phrase that tickles her memory but doesn't come through. Meanwhile the mating bond begins to form between the two as they seek their individual desires and passions beyond each other.If the reader can stick with the complicated vampire lore here, this foundation tale offers a bit of mystery to go with the romance in this imaginative tale. Though tame by today's standards, this older series was no doubt cutting edge in its day and can still be enjoyed by readers who like the suggestion of things to come teased out and don't have an issue with fade to black romantic interludes.Rating:4 stars

    What is up with the controlling guys? I liked Alec, I really did, but things could have gone much smoother for him if he had been more upfront with Domini. Once Domini finally figured out exactly what the truth was, I was surprised at how well she took things. I was expecting a rougher transition for her, so I was pleasantly surprised with her. I'm interested in seeing how things go with this world. Things are a bit different with the vampires, but nothing too outside the box. I look forward to future books.

    This book starts out strong and ends strong. I liked that there was not that yo-yo/should I-shouldn't stuff going on. I'm planning on reading more of the series. Alec is a vampire who's is going feral and is trying to slow/stop the process. In the middle of his mess, he finds his bond mate and tries to keep her from him until he has more control over himself. His bond mate Domini, has a secret family past that she's not even aware of let alone that vampires exist. Good book!

    A great series if you like the sexual strong male characters and their equally strong minded mates. For those who like vampires and romance will not want to put the book down. Alec Reynard and Domini Lancer are just made to be together whether they agree at the moment or not they can't stay away from each other for very long without wanting to go and find the other and bring them back home. Looking forward to the next book in this series.

    An interesting take on vampires, but too many loose ends..not sure if they are tied up later in the series. There was so much good build up that the story felt like it ended too abruptly. I was expecting much more as I read and then the book just ended... leaving me hanging. I felt a little cheated.I'm left wondering if I should continue with this series.

    Bence Türkçe'ye çok geç çevrilmeye başlanmış bir seri benzerlerini ve daha iyilerini gördüğümüz için biraz ordan burdan alınmış (ki bazılarından daha önce yazılmış olmasına rağmen) gibi geldi. O yüzden vasat bulmaktan öteye geçemedim.

    Domini is a psychic who works for her grandfather's security company. She has a powerful draw to the newest member of the company, Alec Reynard, who, to her, is very strange and very dangerous because of his allure. Alec is actually a vampire and the two are drawn to each other because they are soul mates and everything in Alec is telling him to claim Domini for his mate. But Alec is on the edge, having a bad reaction to the drugs that allow him to walk in daylight, he cannot join Domini to him and subject her to his darkness. So he fights it. He also continues to try to hide his nature, but Domini is suspicious. As the attraction draws them together, the truth and Alec's darkness work against them.This was a promising start to the series but fell short in several places. I like the psychic aspect of things and characters themselves are pretty likeable. There's some pretty great action and suspense alongside an awesomely written friendship between Domini and her BFF. The world in which the characters are living and its paranormal nature were very gradually revealed - and the vampires seem to be like tribes, each family named for an animal and claiming a common ancestor. But what's confusing is that there are groups of vampires within the whole population called the Tribes, the Clans and the Families and apparently each exhibit different characteristics. I think I need more explanation of that. There is definitely chemistry between Domini and Alec, although Alec doesn't behave very much like he's met his soul mate and the love of his life. He's awfully rude and sneery toward Domini. But I didn't mind that too much. What I did struggle with though was how quickly Domini had a change of heart - at first she was trying to push Alec away and all that, but then as soon as they have sex and they're mated, she's totally in love and totally fine with being mated to him. And it kinda felt like her choice was taken from her since she didn't know that she'd end up mated to him...And Alec was not even remotely remorseful about any of it (of course it was his goal all along anyway). But while I was a little peeved about Alec's attitude, Domini's total acceptance of being tied for life to a complete stranger who has shown evidence of controlling behavior is mind-boggling. And then the really abrupt ending on top of that with absolutely no winding down or discussion sort of ended the book on a sour note. I'm reading on and hoping the stories at least stay consistent with this one or get better. This first one was walking an edge and this could still be a great series (I'm so hoping it is).

    ssAnother new world for vampires… another strand with its own mythology… in the beginning, both humans and vampires evolved – related, yet different… and the vampires split into: clan (like humans, protect humans), family (middle road, whatever is easier), & tribes (evil, annihilate humans)… The clans are matriarchal, with the title of Matri. And the clan found doctors in this century to help them overcome their ‘allergies’ to light, garlic, silver, wood, etc, with medicines/serums…Alexander (Alec) Reynard, 800 + years old, Prime (adult male) of his Fox Clan, takes his vows seriously to protect and live among the humans… in special forces, until the drugs stopped working, and his self control was not sufficient.. so he resigned to be rebooted… to the doctor in California… and a job in security at the Lancer Corp.Domini Lancer, only living relative to Benjamin – her grandfather & head of the corporation… She is an outstanding security agent herself… she has premonitions, and is telepathic… and one morning she wakes up from a dream with a compulsion to go the farmer’s market to buy peaches… and he is there, watching her, and seems to speak in her mind – but how could that be?Alec recognizes her as his lifemate, but since he is too close to being feral, he knows to stay away from her until he is back in control… until he reports to work, and finds that she is the one to help him transition into his new job…They are working together to protect her friend, a singing star who has been getting threatening letters… but Alec realizes that Domini is the actual target Because….Her grandfather came from a line of vampire hunters… , he and his family became extreme, and did not limit their vampire hunting to just tribe vampires, but to all…. But grandfather was defeated by the Clan matri, and they fell in love (although not as lifemates), and were bonded for 30 years until her duties as Clan Matri called her away from him…they had one son… the son did not get any vampire traits, but his daughter, Domini, did… and his mother, now head of the Purist vampire hunters (and very, very old and hateful) feels Domini is an abomination and is striking out to kill her…Domini & Alec dance around each other… Alec trying to control his feral side (not always successfully) and Domini trying to reconcile her feelings of passion for him, and her growing understanding of his true nature (both as vampire, and as potentially feral vampire)…His medication routine is interrupted, and Domini is in danger, and his mother the Fox Matri (whom he must obey) has summoned him to bring Domini to her… so he more or less kidnaps her… on the trip, he is in great need – both physically to feed & emotionally to dominate his lifemate… and though Domini has a window of time in which to leave him, she can see his need and gives herself freely to him… and they exchange blood for the 1st time…They go to his home, she is asked to liaison with the human hunters to solidify old agreements (a future book?)… she is overwhelmed… she meets his sister (Raven?) who is very rebellious, and though it is time for her to start her own clan, she is anger and warns Domini that they are just to be used as breeders (a future book?)… and because of her vampire grandmother she can also become Matri of her own clan (Condor, as the tattoo on her back?) and Alec puts her first over his mother when she has a premonition that the Purists are going to attack her grandfather, and he helps her to leave to go to him – but of course follows and organizes the local clan to help to defend her grandfather… Interestingly, the local clan, true to their role as human protectors, insist on no blood, but they will use mind control to wipe out the memories & decisions to know about & to hurt vampires… and the story ends with their commitment to one another, and that they will work together in security…

    I was right - I should have read these in order. Having read this book, I now understand so much more about Primal Heat. Although, I still am not totally hooked on Ms. Sizemore's writing. This too was ok. Not stellar, not terrible. I will read the rest of the set that I have (since I got them free) but I doubt I will run out to purchase the ones I don't already have.So, here we have Alec and Domini. Alec is supposed to be a vampire prime who has chosen to live in the daylight and take all the daylight drugs - enough so that he had a career as a Colonel in the Army - but the drugs aren't really working anymore. Domini is a tough private security person who also has visions. And she lives in fear of her Grandfather. They met, can't stay aware from each other, blah blah blah (another book that is totally formulaic for this genre).So, the dialogue between the characters is pretty bad. Really, calling Alec a "d-boy" - has the author met anyone who was ever in special forces? I doubt they refer to themselves as "d-boys" (I know some special ops folks, no one from "Delta" so maybe Delta guys are the odd balls of the bunch, but none of the special ops folks I know refer to themselves in such corny cheesy ways...) There was little enough of the dialogue between the characters though to be able to deal. As a result, the love affair and the bond that was developing seems forced. I miss the books that first got me into this genre where you felt like there was a relationship forming (notwithstanding the formula that writers in this genre feel compelled to never deviate from, no matter how terrible the story becomes or how terrible some of the chapters with the bad guys seem to get). Lately, including with both of the Sizemore books I have read, it seems like they meet and 3 seconds later one of them is thinking/saying "I love you" - it's a little to quick, without development, even for the fantasy world that these books take place in. Holly, Domini's friend is probably the most intriguing character in the book but we only get a little of her - during the middle third of the book. Domini's development is minimal. We know she was an odd ball - but only really becuase of Holly - but we never hear any good stories as to why. That would have helped me like her a lot more, I am sure. And Grandpa, we don't get nearly enough of. Alec's family and the gathering had potential, but it fizzled when Alec let Domini escape the party. And we didn't see what the implications to Alec from his Matri/mother were. I think I would have liked to have seen that confrontation or conversation. Where we learn the truth about Blackbird was kind of a let down too. It was so - anticlimactic in nature. It was taken too well by Domini, even for me (who totally leaves reality at the front door when I read this genre). One the plus side, Alec's mom did some explaining and provided some background on the Prime thing. As well as on the whole Tribe/Clan/Family thing. So I understand more. Although there are still enough holes to drive 18-wheeler's through and I am not sure, based on how little Sizemore seems to want to inform the reader of the rules of the universe, that I will ever get enough of the details to be satisfied in this world. I liked Alec more then I like most of the male vamps lately. He was written so as to not be quite so... well, the term I would use is so not PG rated - but lets say he's a better balance of masculinity and guy-in-love then most of the guys we read about (who are totally macho and so over the top caveman about "their women" that they almost can't be tolerated or taken seriously). Finally, the steaminess factor - totally a low rating on that front. I would read those scenes, and say to myself "that's it?" Glad I got these free.

    I happened to find this novel very interesting. This novel is just one of the many that I happened to find in a resale shop and it intrigued me. This novel is about a vampire, but the vampires have a twist to them. It was kind of confusing at first, but after a while I really got into it. Nothing in this novel is actually normal by any means. It was damn right confusing at first and then got really interesting in a putting-a-different-swing-on-how-vampires-act sort of way. For instance, they have allergies to garlic and silver, but they can wear a special sunscreen and take medication to stand the sunlight. The way they live is also interesting, because they either live in families, clans, and/or tribes. There's a big difference between each them and there's reasons for why that is too. In this novel Domini is a human with some psychic abilities, mostly premonition. She can see things here and there about what’s going to happen to certain people. She's never seen a major disaster, except when she was three, do there usually unimportant snidbits. She ended up seeing Alec in a dream, seeing him many and many times that is, and seeing him then at her work place. Alec needs a job and a buddy of his helped him out by setting up a meeting between him and Domini's grandfather. The job in question is that of being a bodyguard for celebrities and other high paying clients. He eventually got the job and with his good luck he got Domini as his personal trainer. Not that she thought that she was lucky at all. Domini wants nothing to do with Alec and even told him so at one point. However, when she's suddenly attacked while on duty Alec goes into protective mode and doesn't want her out of his sight. He now has to find out why the Purist want her dead and why she keeps getting called Blackbird. This novel has an edgy feel to it that under the right circumstances can get under your skin. There's a fight to retrieve balance between the two main characters that I could see throughout the novel. They both want something different, while at the same time wanting the exact same thing. This sparks a passion between the two and you can often see that passion in the pages. This is a romance novel with action and a tad bit of mystery in its pages. It can worm its way into your soul until you realize all too late how important it’s for you to finish the novel. It’s quite addicting and once I got done reading it I went to buy the next few in the series. I can quite honestly say that I never saw this coming when I looked upon the cover. It can be quite deceiving, but in one of the best ways possible.*Read on August 10th, 2015

    Alexander or Alec, is one of the Prime males (sound vaguely familiar right? lol) for his vampire Clan Reynard. Domini is his bond mate, but she doesn't know it yet. She is also psychic, having had premonitions of future events since she was a small child. Domini works for her grandfather who owns and runs a bodyguard agency. He hires Alec to fill a spot vacated by a previous agent. From the moment they meet, they are drawn to each other. Alec knows Domini is his, his bond mate meant for him. But (of course) Domini is clueless about it. She keeps having dreams that Alec shows up in. Alec is trying to control his urge to dominate Domini, which happens when Primes find their mates. In addition to that, he is also taking a series of drugs so he can walk in the light like a human. More complications arise when they discover there is a group of Purist vampire hunters after Domini. Things that I found interesting:This book was printed in 2003Domini's long time childhood best friend Holly, which she is sent out to protect with Alec, is a lesbian.The name of the male Elder in Alec's clan is Barack. I read a lot of vampire pnr and I found this take on the vampire story very interesting and satisfying and it didn't hurt that the smex happens fairly quickly between Alec and Domini, which is always a plus in my book. Now, a funny story with this series. Back when I started reading PNR and was purchasing paperbacks non-stop, I bought the first 8 books in this series from reading the back of this one book. I didn't remember doing that until I was organizing books and came across a lot of books with this authors name on it. I wondered what I was thinking, and if I would even like this book since it and the others I had was basically impulse buys. My worries are now gone, as I think I will enjoy all the future books and look forward to reading the rest.

    I really enjoyed this story overall. However, when I really stop and dissect the inner workings of this story's vampire world and other aspects of it, things become muddled and not a clear. I felt the story was sorta all over the place and had a 'newbie' feel to it. Fate finally steps in and throws Alexander "Alec" Reynard and Domini Lance together. Alec instantly recognizes her as his mate, but with his recent trouble with his medication that allows him to be out in the sun, knows this isn't the time to pursue her. Fate, however has a different opinion when the job Alec gets at a local body guarding agency turns out to be where Domini works for her grandfather. The connection is instant, but for a while Alec keeps making Domini believe everything is a dream that concerns him and her together. During their first job together of guarding one of her long time childhood friends, Domini tries to resist the pure attraction to Alec, especially since there is something about him that she doesn't trust. Soon though, Alec realizes that the threats toward her friend were meant only as a way to get to Domini. Now while trying to get Domini to trust him, he's having to worry about saving her life. Finally they do make the plunge, which ends up being how she finds out his true identity despite many clues before hand. Shocking as it is, she's more mad he let her believe she was going crazy from hearing his voice and the 'dreams' of them together. Its soon after that Alec is summoned home, forced to bring Domini with him. Its there that their relationship becomes strained as her true heritage is revealed and the plan his mother has for her to help bridge the gab between the different species. When Domini receives a premonition about her grandfather, Alec must choose between his mate and orders from his higher power not to let her leave. Its coming to her rescue to make sure she's safe, that everything falls back into place and everything is perfect again.

    La historia me parecio interesante, como es que los vampiros llegan a formar distintos grupos que representan lo que son.. y como dentro de uno de ellos se encuentran diferentes clanes. Todo el concepto del clan es que son guardianes y no solo de su pueblo.. sino que tambien cuidan de los humanos a su manera.. como por ejemplo participando en las diferentes formas de defensa que tiene el pais.. ya sea de policias, bomberos o demas..Domini se encuentra con Alex gracias a los poderes psiquicos que ha tenido desde siempre.. pero gracias a ese poder logra encontrar a su pareja.. que aunque sea muy dominante y todo eso.. es bastante manipulable por ella :p.. ademas que al final del libro descubre cosas de su pasado..Comienzan a aparecer los problemas para ellos cuando aparecen los puristas... cazadores de vampiros que usan la filosofia de que todos ellos son malos y deben de ser destruidos..El libro.. no queda un final completamente concreto y pareciera que continuara en el siguiente libro.. aunque a lo que lei.. se hara con otra pareja.. si se resuelve su problema amoroso y es mas que obvio que se van a quedar juntos.. pero su futuro queda un tanto incierto por lo de los cazadores..En el amor.. como en la mayoria de libros.. estan destinados.. blah blah.. alguno de los dos tiene dificultades para hacerse a la idea de que realmente no tiene mas opcion que estar con la otra persona.. pero al final acepta su destino y viven felices para siempre..

    Although the pictures maybe somewhat inappropriate i thought this was a really well written book. The author uses like imagination and emphasis or words to describe more of the feelings and emotions the characters are going through. I also love how she use personification to describe fear because she does it in like the boom moment where everything finally comes together like a puzzle and the character realizes her fear which is exciting to me. I also like how she used imagination because she puts like imagination in a realistic fictional story to its like imagination in imagination and it gets me thinking sometimes because it grabs the readers attention. The thing people would enjoy about Susan sizemore books is how she ties fate and destiny into her books because it makes you realizes that sometimes the world is a small place and anything can happen. I enjoyed this book very much because even though it had like a couple of pages of sexual content i still enjoyed the book overall at how a human who found out she had vampire blood in her and a vampire strive to be a couple under pressure from vampire hunters and the elite vampires.

    I didn't enjoy this one as much as I wanted to. It's a fast read, and the writing is confident and smooth, but I felt like sometimes it moved too fast, and the main characters were a little detached, especially during the sex scenes, which weren't as intimate as I'd like. I didn't buy that Alec loved her, I didn't really buy any of their emotions. I liked the take on vampires - with the Clans taking medicine and serums so they can move about during the day and not be susceptible to garlic etc., but it seemed to get interesting at the end when Alec's difficult sister Flare made her narky comment about a woman's place in clan and it completely distracted me from the zest and zing that was apparently going on. There was just too much distance, and the author didn't seem particularly invested in the romantic side of things. Otherwise, it would have been one of the better novels in the genre.

    This was actually pretty good. A ton of things were explained clearly as far as the 3 types of vampires etc. Purists & hunters...ONE MAJOR FLAW!!! She gives a date of birth instead of an age of the vamp. He would be 44 today, but when it came out, he was 35... In a few years, he will be 50 & so not cool in the vamp world.The blurb on the back is incorrect. It says that he wonders if she is a slayer infiltrating his clan... WHAT?!?First of all, this is about Domini whose grandfather owns a security company who hires Alec & they are both part of a team protecting Domini's friend Ashe a singer who has received threats. Near to the end of the book, Alec is called by his clan mother to bring Domini to her. Seriously...It was a good fast "read in a day" book. I've read some out of order & this one was better than some of the others. The cover is crap & the synopsis is wildly off target, but contents are good!

    Not the worst book that I've this year and by far not the best one either. I really liked the take the author had on the vampire society and their culture. I liked Domini, thought she had some strong backbone and was a pretty strong heroine. Alec had his good moments and then he had his realy jerk moments. Somethings didn't do it for me though. I thought the story started strong, but then it kept stalling in the middle, causing the end to be very rushed. There were times that I had to go back and read the last paragraph because I though I missed something. The writing wasn't very good either, but you can see the potential there. I saw that the ratings for the next books just kept getting better, so I think the author made some adjustments.

    This is an interesting take on vampires. I mean Eve having a sister. Incredible then there is medical intervention for garlic and silver allergies. I think it's pretty cool. I liked how the clans are made up of animals. I think it was also creative to have the ruling parties be women. Go us!!So the granddaughter of a matriarch has bonded and no one really knew she was part vampire. I liked the story it was believable (family secrets) and I liked how intricate everything was detailed. The only thing I disliked was lancer she was whiny and very confusing even for an alpha female. I mean I understand the situation was confusing but it could have been better handled and communicated.Overall a good start for the series.

    I want to say 2.8/5... And then at times I think that's a bit harsh. I really liked the whole medicated twist on the genre. That said, it seemed really disjointed. The flow didn't, well, flow logically at times. The reactions seemed disjointed and some of the actions lacked proper consequences--that is, unless they were taken in vacuums and I didn't get the memo. Shit happens, yeah? lol...The ending was also a little.. Well.. I felt like it lacked something. Anyways. I'll likely give the next one a shot to see if it picks up, but so far I'm not overly impressed. Just wish Sizemore was more consistent and more committed to her story choices to follow-through on her plot decisions.

    I decided to take this book with me on my short vacation to Las Vegas -- I ended up having time to read this, as it is a QUICK and fun read. A Vampire romance that focuses more on the romance and the life of our heroine rather than the VAMPIRE side of the story. Very nice. I look forward to the other two (or more by now??) in the series (thirst and hunger for you).Domini is a great character, as is Alec, though we know more about D than her vampire. I also liked some of the other characters that are around Domini, especially Andy who calls our heroine Dominatrix (her name kind of asks for it does it not?) Anyway, a fun read, and just great for a trip to Vegas. :-)
