A WOMAN OUT FOR BLOOD
Nicole Martin was only eight years old when the vampire slaves rose up in rebellion and killed her family. Now she devotes her life to finding a vaccine against vampirism, hoping to wipe out her memories—along with every bloodsucker on the planet. But there’s one thing she cannot destroy: her searing, undeniable attraction for the one man she should hate and fear the most . . .
A VAMPIRE OUT FOR REVENGE
A member of the renegade vampire MoonBound Clan, Riker is haunted by demons of his own. When he recognizes Nicole and remembers how her family enslaved his loved ones, his heart burns for vengeance. But when he kidnaps Nicole and holds her in a secret lair, his mortal enemy becomes his soul obsession, his greatest temptation, and, perhaps, his only salvation—a hot-blooded lover who could heal him with her touch . . . or bury him forever.

My Thoughts –
Where does the story take place? In some futuristic, dystopian-like setting in the mountains/forest somewhere
Is the title a good/bad choice for the story? Not sure – were the vampires really bound by night. I didn’t see really evidence that anything might happen
List the top 3 characters and 1 word to describe them each. 1)Nicole – lost 2)Riker – vengeful 3)Hunter - leader
Give the book an alternate ending…or were you happy with it? It all worked out, so I can’t complain
Did you cry, laugh, sigh, cringe, fume or feel nothing? Chuckled, sighed, fumed and then some…
This was a great story. Super fast paced and easy to read. The main characters have wicked chemistry and there’s a great action/danger element. I think it was a good read and the world created was very interesting. I liked the uniqueness of these vampires and the environment they live in.
I only had an issue of the ‘I love you but have hated and feared you all of my life’ situation. I
also think a little bit more world building would have been nice – something I usually never day because I hate overly descriptive books.
