A mythic warrior who'll stop at nothing to possess her…


After enduring years of torture from the vampire Horde, Lachlain MacRieve, leader of the Lykae Clan, is enraged to find the predestined mate he's waited millennia for is a vampire. Or partly one. This Emmaline is a small, ethereal half Valkyrie/half vampire, who somehow begins to soothe the fury burning within him.


A vampire captured by her wildest fantasy...


Sheltered Emmaline Troy finally sets out to uncover the truth about her deceased parents--until a powerful Lykae claims her as his mate and forces her back to his ancestral Scottish castle. There, her fear of the Lykae--and their notorious dark desire--ebb as he begins a slow, wicked seduction to sate her own dark cravings.


My Thoughts

The two main characters, Lachlain and Emma, are total opposites and of course are meant for each other. Lachlain is Lykae and Emma is half Valkyrie and half Vampire. The Lykaes hate Vampires and the feeling is mutual, Vampires are less than fond of Lykaes.

Lachlain has waited his whole life to find his mate and now to his horror, she is half Vampire. His people have been killing Vampires for ages. But Vampire or not Emma is his mate and he will protect her forever. Whether she likes it or not!

Emma is just as horrified to learn that a Lykae thinks her to be his mate. What will her family think? Emma has been very sheltered in her life and this Lykae is a huge brute that is keeping her prisoner because he believes her to be his mate. I don’t want to give the story away so I will stop here.

I had a difficult time getting into this book initially. I thought it dragged a little bit, although in the end I really did enjoy it,And the more I read, the harder it was to put down. I know there are those who won't agree with me, lol, but there you go.

I liked how Kresley Cole handled the evolution of the two main characters' relationship. You could feel Lachlain's frustration at finally finding his mate and the issues involved (I don't want to give those issues away, hehe), and you could feel the fear and uncertainty Emma felt as she finally starting moving out of the shelter of her family and finding herself and the man she loved.

All in all I thought it was a great book and by the end I was totally hooked. I thought this was really well written. The story is engrossing and the sex is hot! What more can you ask for in a book? I suggest you have the next book in the series on hand when you finish this one because you will want to go on to the next immediately!!

As with all of Kresley's books I loved this one too. The beginning when he first realizes she's in Paris and has to get free was unreal.
Very nice review.

Excellent review JoJo! I haven't read Cole's work before, but your review definitely has me interested now. I've read a few slow starters and I wonder to myself, are the show parts of the novel necessary? Regardless, sizzling sex is always good! You know how we do at Fire Pages!

Thanks for the review JoJo. I've had HLNO on my Paperbackswap wishlist for a while now. I might just up a copy instead.
