Texas . . . the heart of a territory that stretches from the golden deserts of New Mexico to the turquoise shores of the Florida Keys. It’s big, it’s rich, and it’s the next battleground for some of the most dangerous vampires in the world.
Christian Duvall . . . charismatic and powerful, and determined to claim the South as his own. But with old enemies and new fighting to stop him, victory suddenly takes on a brutal, and far more treacherous, edge. Because what one of his enemies wants more than anything else already belongs to Christian . . . and her name is Natalie.
Natalie Vivant Gaudet . . . brilliant and lovely, a strong Southern woman who can unravel the most intricate financial schemes designed to swindle and steal. She loves her complex job and the simplicity of her life. And then she meets Christian. He’s beautiful, he’s complicated, and she’ll fight to keep him alive.
With allies trying to kill him, and enemies readying a horde of zombie vampires to roll over all of Texas, it will take every shred of Christian’s power and Natalie’s determination to win this war and give North America a brand new Lord of the South.
Christian Duvall has been hiding his true power for a long while, no one knows that depth of his power or his abilities apart from his closest friend and child. When there is a opening for the Lord of the South, he heads down to Texas to become a contender for the position. But there is treachery and deceit that surrounds him. No one trusts him and would likely stab him in the back than shake his hand. Then he meets Natalie, who is working on unearthing the financial schemes from the previous lord Jabril. She may be a distant cousin to the current Lord of the south who is stepping down and return to New Orleans, however when she meets Christian her life becomes more complicated and yet exciting. There is a powerful chemistry between Christian and Natalie. Natalie may be human, but she will fight and stand by Christian who holds her heart. But there are many enemies that surround Christian, does he have enough power to fight them all?
Plot and Story Line
Yep Yep we have another powerful vampire that has been thrown in the mix here and he isn’t just any average joe either. Christian is from Europe and even though his previous lord was the woman who tried to kill Raphael in Hawaii, he never was part of her plan and never supported her in it. Christian was different and I liked that. For all of his existence he has never revealed how powerful he is, he has kept it contained and man Christian is one sexy beast. He is confident, powerful, charming and sensual. He is pretty patient though, he doesn’t just outright battle his power with the current Lord of the South. He bides his time, because this is a tricky game of cat and mouse and Christian is determined to come out on top. Then he finds his mate in Natalie and his life becomes more complicated. What I liked most about this book was the thrills, intrigue, danger and mystery that is packed in this book. Man, D.B. Reynolds has really upped her game in this book for sure and I just get shivers down the spine thinking about it. hehe We also get some more fun times with Raphael and Cynthia and Vincent. We get a bit of a teaser for what the next book will be and I can’t wait!! The romance that develops here is pretty enjoyable and I really had some fun with Christian and Natalie. Natalie was my type of heroine, and boy I liked how she handled Christian. At first, she is out of her depth with Christian, but she adjusts to him pretty quickly and has him eating out of her hand practically. She is a bit quiet and reserved, but can be bold when its needed. Another great addition to a fantastic series!!
Yummy and delicious, love the pecs and muscle and the purple with the Texas like background is a nice touch too!!!
Christian is action packed with some sexy and unique characters, dangerous villains to keep you at the edge of your seat and a romance that will steal its way into your heart!! RICH AND COMPELLING!!
