Aleksandr Nemov won't stop until the last of the vampire hunter’s progeny is wiped from the Earth. Each kill has stolen a piece of his humanity, pushing him towards the black abyss all vampires hold within their hearts. Now he is teetering on the edge, close to devolving into a beast, and time is running out as he tracks the last hunter to Prague. There he finds a beautiful woman who could be his one chance for salvation, but is it already too late for him? 
A vampire guard who will do whatever it takes to protect those she loves...

Lexy's Thoughts:

Aleksander is an honorable vampire fighting to protect his people and keep his heart from complete darkness.
In classic romance fashion Aleksander is balancing the line between good and evil when he finds Elise and sees in her a way to tip the scales. Unknowing who she finds Elise attacks and brings in this handsome strange vampire, only to find out he is a prince. Used to getting his way Aleksander is unsure how to win over Elise’s heart.
Elise fights her own battle against her heart as Aleksander threatens to steal it from her. She has experienced loss before and is unable to throw caution to the wind and take a chance on love. It is a sweet surrender when Aleksander and Elise finally come together as it is true that two are stronger than one.
Unfortunately there is a feeling of repetition as Aleksander debates his intent with Elise and how close he is to falling to the dark side. But there is also the sweet romance and redemption that does helps even that out. An enjoyable read that won’t shake up your world, but it will definitely entertain you with a great love story.

I just got this in the mail today. Serendipity, I guess. I have never read this author and I am looking forward to trying someone new.

Thanks for posting the review!
