Leader of the VC Warriors Cincinnati branch, Duncan Roark, has devoted his long life to the Warriors he calls brothers and the Vampire Council, protecting innocents of both the vampire and human race. Things change suddenly when it is ordered that he and his fellow Warriors train human Social Workers to protect themselves in their new world of vampires. Falling in love with a human was something Duncan never thought possible, but love her he did. Now instead of being the ruthless leader he was trained to be, his focus has turned to finding the woman he loved and let go.
Pam Braxton is outgoing and loves her job working with children, but when she realizes her live in boyfriend, Kenny Lawrence, has been using her and her job for his illegal activities, she becomes withdrawn, and her world is turned upside down. Deciding to take matters into her own hands, she stays, trying to learn more of his betrayal so she could see him punished. That decision sucks her deeper into a relationship that has turned dangerous and abusive. Overhearing a plot that would put everyone she cares about at risk, she finds the courage to try to stop the monster who has threatened her friends and the man she truly loves. Now Pam is on the run, alone and with a secret that could change the already unbalanced world of vampires and humans.
As Duncan searches for Pam, the threat of losing his leadership role has the other Warriors worried, but their loyalty for Duncan is strong and they stand behind him. Duncan’s search is relentless; he knows he is not the only one looking for Pam. Even with his responsibilities slipping, he puts it all on the line to find the only woman he has ever loved. In a race against time, Duncan fights to find Pam before her past catches up to her. The Warrior’s path is clear: Find the woman he loves before the past finds her first.
I read this book in 2014. I enjoyed the audio book just as much. It was so nice to reconnect with the Warriors and their mates. So many small details were forgot in these year it was great to be reminded of them. Jeffrey Kafer did a wonderful job narrating Duncan.
Here is my original review:
I received this book by the Author for an honest review.
I have fallen for these Warriors I loved Damon, then Jared, now Duncan, and I see Sid and Slade falling right in line with the others.
We see Pam and Duncan throughout Damon and Jared’s book. Duncan has a thing for Pam and is on the hunt for her after everything went down in Jared’s book. Pam took off and was in hiding from Kenny and everyone else. Duncan is determined to find her and not let her go again.
This book had me laughing and crying. Sid had me in stitches; His “Kitchen Laws” were great. The things Pam went through and had to deal with I just wanted to climb in the book and give her a hug. The great thing about Pam is that she is a woman that will survive and be stronger because of it. Duncan is protective, a true Alpha male, and knows what he wants and goes after it. The way he treats Pam melted my heart.
It was great to be able to see all the characters throughout this book and even got to see a little more of Sloan. I absolutely love the new character, Slade, he is yummy. I cannot wait to see where things go with him and Jill. We got to see more of Tessa and Jarred and see their struggles. I only hope they are able to figure something out there. There is something going on with Slade and Jill. I only hope that we get to see Jill’s HEA soon she so deserves it. Then there is Sid and Adam who also need their HEA.
I love that the woman in this series are not the weak, innocent, and needy type but instead strong, stand up to their warriors, and have spunk. The warriors are the Alpha male, take charge, and protect what is theirs.
Theresa give you enough at the end than you just have a need to know what is going to happen and want to keep reading. I love how each book focuses on one of the warriors but still has side stores of all of them. Only other thing I can say is I want more…more Pam and Duncan, more Damon and Nicole, more Jarred and Tessa, more Slade and Jill, more Sid, and Adam. I cannot wait to start reading Sid and then I need to find out more about Slade and Adam.
A few of my favorites:
“This is my domain, and from here on out, anything but eating is against kitchen law.” ~Sid
“You are not alone in this anymore. You are mine, and I will always be yours.” ~Duncan
Her lips latched on his wrist; he felt the pull of her mouth taking his blood and damn, didn’t that make him feel more like a man that he ever had. His protectiveness tripled at that moment. No one would ever harm this woman again.
“Baby, we kill shit.” Jared talked to her on a serious level. “We don’t do baby showers. Nowhere in the Warrior’s oath does it say we do baby showers.”
Being a full-time writer has allowed Teresa to connect more with readers which is what she loves most about writing. If you find the time she would love to hear from you!
