Vampire King Ronan Kayrs wasn’t supposed to survive the savage sacrifice he willingly endured to rid the world of the ultimate evil. He wasn’t supposed to emerge in this time and place, and he sure as hell wasn’t supposed to finally touch the woman who’s haunted his dreams for centuries. Yet here he is, in an era where vampires are hidden, the enemy has grown stronger, and his mate has no idea of the power she holds.
Dr. Faith Cooper is flummoxed by irrefutable proof that not only do vampires exist . . . they’re hot-blooded, able to walk in sunlight, and shockingly sexy. Faith has always depended on science, but the restlessness she feels around this predatory male defies reason. Especially when it grows into a hunger only he can satisfy—that is if they can survive the evil hunting them both.
The Dark Protectors was a completed series and the author had moved onto other series including a spin-off that failed to capture my interest. I loved the series and was sad to see it go but completely satisfied with where it left us. After rereading my review for book 7, however, I see that I had wished the author would revisit the world and continue someday.
Well, today is that day! If you don’t take into account the novella and short stories… Anyway, Vampire’s Faith is a full-length novel set in the Dark Protectors world and I’m thrilled to see that this series is back!
I wasn’t sure what to expect but I knew there were going to be a strong-willed defiant female lead and a pig-headed yet completely sexy alpha male that would swoop in and throw her over his shoulder to claim her as his mate. I wasn’t disappointed. The action was plentiful and nicely paced, and the romance full of tension and chemistry. I so enjoyed watching Faith defy and attempt to resist Ronan knowing full well he would win her in the end. some days you are just in the mood to read about a female standing up to a pushy mate. My only complaint about their relationship is one sex scene near the end bothered me a bit as it felt that sex was being used for a punishment and I’m just not into that sort of thing. Otherwise, this was a great couple and I enjoyed reading about their pairing.
If you are looking to check in on some of the previous characters in this world you might be a bit disappointed. They were mentioned several times but largely stayed out of the plot. We do have a couple of their kids play prominent roles in this new book but the rest stay out of the picture mostly. I don’t want to spoil the plot but the way the story went gives me hope that the series will continue and we might get a chance to see familiar faces.
This was a great read and I loved the fresh plot and new adventures that await us. If you enjoyed the first seven books you won’t want to miss this one.
My Rating: 5 Stars
