A dangerous allure…
Alasdair Kyriakous is one of the most feared and ruthless vampires in existence. Bestowed eternal life by the Ancient Vasilios, his name carries much weight across the continents. But he is a mystery to his kind, an anomaly among the self-indulgent. While he enjoys the pleasures of the flesh, he is exceptionally particular in who he takes them from, priding himself on his ironclad self-control. Yet with one look, and one man, his control will become a thing of the past, and Alasdair will discover—eternal life doesn’t always last forever…
A deadly attraction…
Thrust into a world he never knew existed, Leo Chapel has awoken in his worst nightmare. One that is being orchestrated by the dangerously, mesmerizing vampire, Alasdair. He’s taken him hostage, convinced that Leo is hiding something after he managed to incapacitate him, and has vowed to do whatever is necessary to discover what that is—even if Leo himself has no clue.
A forbidden desire that could destroy a race…
Brought together by a force neither are aware of, both Alasdair and Leo are ignorant that they are pawns to a higher power. All they know, is the more time they spend trying to uncover the others secrets, the stronger the attraction becomes. But enemies are watching, from afar and from within, and when decisions that will alter lives and destinies have to be made—can a dead grey heart learn to beat again?
I was JUST telling my girls that I’ve been wanting to read something different, something really, really hot. Alasdair could not have picked a better time to show up in my life! I refuse to even compare it to the other books in the sub-genre but wow is one of the words I’d use to describe it. I will admit, going into this book I thought to myself, my brain is going to compare, going to envision the other books about vampires and I can honestly say that I didn’t. I was 100% vested and convinced of the conviction of the characters. Alasdair is beautiful, mysterious, cunning and hot. Leonidas *sigh*, tough in his own right, yet vulnerable, curious and gorgeous himself.
While this book is written in the third person, I was slightly caught off guard an an extra POV, but Ella is a master of this style of writing that it just made sense and flowed with the story. Speaking of Ella, she is brilliant, absolutely brilliant. I fell in love with her while reading her Temptation series and my God, does she know how to write a mind blowing blowjob scene!! As a reader, you dive into books to be a part of that world, even for a moment and good Lord, was I in that moment. I even blushed during that scene! *Fans self* I didn’t want to leave! Her descriptive style, how she flows into the transitions and flashbacks.
I really, really don’t want to spoil anything here, but her writing in Alasdair, just…YES! It was a quick, yet very detailed read and I truly enjoyed every second of it. I cannot wait for more of this series!
