On the Flap
After she breaks with a vampire kingpin named Tristan who tried to turn her against her uncle and her own vampire family, her life spins out of control. Bloodthirsty wolves, a new threat to the Savannah area, stalk her daily. She is dead set on finding the source of the attempts on her life and repairing the strained ties with her uncle Severin, so the last thing Cosette needs is a devastatingly sexy new human in her life. Colton Brennan is a massive Montana cowboy, a skilled fighter who has sworn to win Cosette’s love. Try as she might, she can’t resist the passion he has ignited within her, no matter what the consequences. Can this human provide the love and protection Cosette has unwittingly craved?
Meanwhile Tristan and his power-hungry clan are on a quest for Southern vampiric domination. Can Cosette and her Charleston-based vampire family survive their brutal onslaughts?
Book 2 in the Past Midnight series.
Cosette may be one of my favorite heroines of Edwards. She’s extremely independent and spirited, headstrong and sexy with just a hint of vulnerability underneath. I love she is truly the central character and feel when all is said and done we have a better grasp on her entirely, from childhood/vampire origin to the present.
Colton, on the other hand, isn’t my favorite male lead but I do appreciate his alpha maleness at the core. He is a protector by nature, with that theme carrying him throughout the storyline. Although we do know plenty about him and his past, he also seems to be more tangential.
This is another fun turn of events courtesy of Christine Edwards. She has a way of telling a succinct yet enjoyable story. I love that there’s never too much information. She leaves just enough to the imagination for me to create the story in my head like a movie but still gives sufficient detail to paint a clear picture. This isn’t gritty or over emotional. It is pure erotic romance and in this specific case, has the paranormal aspect. There is also great appeal with the suspense and action which helps propel the story forward; creating just enough unease to create that push and pull of the characters. Another solid book and I can’t wait for the next.
