Eternal Kiss, fangs get me every time

Eternal Kiss, by author Laura Wright, is the second book in her series Mark of the Vampire. I enjoyed this book much more then the first one in the series, Eternal Hunger. I do hope that as this series continues, the stories will grow and the characters continue to build. While Mark of the Vampire is not the BEST series I have read, it's still a pretty decent read. :)

Raised by the Breed, Nicholas Roman wants to stop the Eternal Order of Vampires from controlling his life. More importantly Nicholas must stop them from using other males from his bloodline-including possibly his son-for their vicious reign. Only a beautiful vampire stranger can help him, but what are her true motives? Vampire Kate Everborne claims she's sheltering Nicholas's long-lost son, but if this is true, then who is the mother?

I love reading about vampires, but so far these guys are not standing out for me. Nothing all that endearing or memorable about the characters. Or maybe it's just me having read SO many vamp books I want something that's a bit different from the norm. Laura does go deeper into the background with her main characters this time around and for that I am thankful, but I didn't have any WOW moments. Plus the cover for this book is all wrong. Shouldn't he have marks on his cheeks since that's what they described in the book? Maybe it's a bunch of little things that bugged me, but over the course of a book those do add up.....

Nicholas and Kate are both dealing with painful childhood pasts that left them with major trust issues toward each other and the world around them. Freedom is the key theme in this book, as each side of the conflict has their own interpretation of what freedom means. How can these two ever find common ground? LUST! What an ice breaker! And wow, do these two have some steamy romance going on! For the most part Nicholas and Kate were enjoyable to read about. Add to that some action, backstabbing and plot turns and the book does maintain your interest.

I can see where the series is going and I am willing hang with it further. Evil is rising and trying to make its stand, while the brothers are all working to keep the peace and not loose each other in the process.

I do have to mention a few things I did not like this time around. The c* word is used quiet a bit, it may just be me but I can't stand that word. Just grates my nerves. And hello?! Nasty club bathrooms for hot and heavy time...yeah no thanks. Behind a dumpster might have been a step up from that scenario. A little predictable in parts but that aside the books are good, not great, but worth a read.

  1. this one has been on my list. Thanks for the review. I don't like the *c or the *p word in my sex scenes. Just to derogatory.

  2. A very good review and the book title makes it even more intriguing.

  3. @Sharon I would say start with book one to see if you will like this, but yeah the words used at times will grate on your nerves a bit.

    @Cynthia It wasn't a prefect fit for me but I hope it is for you. :) Let me know what you think after you give it a go
