My Review:
What an exciting adventure this story is!  AND it has vampires can't go wrong with vampires and sorry not the sparkly kind!! So Kat is a dancer in Vegas and is comfortable with the world of vampires because she's been around them for years!! Marcus saved Kat from a vampire attack and the two have had a save protector like relationship since.  All is well until Stephen Von Hass, Marcus' Sire comes for a visit.
There is an instant attraction between Marcus and Kat and the two begin to date. This relationship begins to get under Marcus' skin because he starts to realize he maybe falling in love with Kat but unsure if he should peruse these feelings.
Hello awkward love triangle!! Now Kat is stuck between the loving both vampires. If she choses one, she'll surely lose the other.
I really liked this story!! All three of the chracters are very strong and motavatied people and it was entertaining to watch them bicker, flirt and fall in love with each other (well not the guys!!) And WHO doesn't adore love triangles?? It's fun to watch the characters squirm umcomftably and wow did Brenda pull that off beautifully!! This is a must read for all you vampire lovers out there!!!
“So tell me, young one, is Kat short for something or did your parents just have a fascination with felines?”
“It’s short for Katrina. But everyone calls me Kat.”
She began to gather the playing cards from the table, but Stephan stilled her shaking hands by covering them with his own. Something akin to an electric current passed between them. Katrina gazed at Stephan, drinking him in, dangerous, magnificent, and so very beautiful.
“Where are my manners?” she asked, her voice quivering. “Would you like a drink?”
“You read my mind,” he replied as he rose, pulling her toward him. “I am a little parched, actually.”
Their eyes locked and Kat once again fell into his dark gaze. Her mind detached, as if  she watched herself from above. The feel of his mouth registered on her lips, while
the smell of sandalwood engulfed her. His lips feathered kisses down her jaw, coming to a rest where her shoulder met her throat. She swooned. His arms closed around her like a set of steel bands, pulling her up against his firm body. Kat moaned when his tongue flicked out to taste her sensitive skin. He inhaled deeply against her neck causing goose bumps to pimple her flesh.
“Honeysuckle,” he murmured, his lips brushing against her flesh. His fangs lengthened, scraping the skin where her pulse beat, sending her heart racing. He cupped her bottom in one hand and tightened his arm around her waist. Her body stiffened only a little as  he pulled her tighter against him, lifting her off her feet.
