My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Heat rating:

Being married to two sexy vampires is as exciting as it is dangerous. One minute I'm on top of the world, ecstasy my best friend, the next I'm running for my life. But it's okay with Aimery and Ryle at my side-they've sworn to love and protect me and keep me satisfied until I'm old and tray.

But when everything crashes down, literally, I can see no way out of the darkness-death my best option. Until, that is, two unusual men who live in the Canadian Rockies come bounding to my aid.

Gentle Caleb and prickly Isaac have secrets. They're full of passion, desire, love and lust and their isolated lives weaved with mystery. But I know what they are. I'm not completely naive. I'm also craving some serious satisfying, a distraction from my dilemma, and it seems these guys are up for the job. Will I ever be normal again? Or will my life always be turbulent, terrifying and tempting beyond belief? Nothing is certain in a world of vampires and shifters.

Publisher's Note: This book is a sequel to Bite Mark. A Romantica(r) paranormal erotic romance from Ellora's Cave

For those of you who have read my reviews, you already know that I am a huge fan of Lily's work and this is no exception.

This is a great continuation from Bite Mark and it picks up right where Bite Mark leaves off.

It starts off with a bang and the pace is quick while Ryle, Aimery and Bea rush to escape Elfrida's clutches. Then the story turns as tragedy strikes and Bea is left on her own, only to be rescued by two sexy wolf shifters.

Bea's grief is tangible as she suffers over a heartbreaking loss and she finds comfort with Caleb and Isaac. Caleb is sweet and tender and Isaac is intense and protective. Both of them are a wonderful balm to Bea's suffering as they help her see that life is worth living, even after a terrible tragedy and she is strong enough to move on.

One thing that I am very glad for though is that while Bea found comfort with Caleb, she didn't with Isaac. Isaac was more of just a protector and companion. I don't know how that matters but it does. That just seems to be a line that I am glad she did not cross. 

The story climaxes as all the elements from Bite Mark come together and Bea gets her happy ever after with a wonderful surprise at the end. This story is at times sweet, at times sexy, and at times intense. It's wonderfully written and a great conclusion to what started in Bite Mark.
