Rating: 4 Cups
Anastazia Proctor is an attorney with an exceptional record. She craves a challenge almost as much as she craves control. Her guardian, Tim Robertson, has given her the tools to maintain that control since she was a little girl.
Matthias Hawthorne is a centuries old vampire. He lost his first love years and years ago, but now he has another chance; one he does not intend to let slip by, even if it takes years to come to fruition.
Anastazia, or Taz to her closest friends, or in her case Tim, is very leery of accepting the amazing job offer from Matthias. She senses something about him that is out of the ordinary, and her senses have never let her down. The attraction she feels for him is just one more reason to say no. His eyes are liquid blue pools of sheer lust, and she wants nothing more than to dive right in. Matthias can feel Taz’s every thought like it is his own, and he has no intention of letting her out of his sight. Her very life depends on his protection. A life that even she knows very little about, but will be more extraordinary than she could possibly imagine.
This is a vampire story unlike any other. The whole genetic concept is fantastic, and lends the story a truly realistic element. The characters are completely identifiable, and the reader is hooked immediately. Taz and Matthias are like two pieces of a puzzle that can only come together in just the right way. The forces around them try to tear them apart, but once they click, nothing can separate their love for each other. I absolutely recommend this to any paranormal reader, and can only hope Ms. Richardson is a fast writer!
