Ever since his abduction by the Eternal Order of Vampires, Gray Donohue has finally found his true calling: vengeance. He will stop at nothing to bring his fellow Impure vampires the freedom they deserve. Now if he could just release his primal need for the beautiful vampire who saved his life—and rules his thoughts and desires…
After nearly killing the senator she was assigned to protect, Dillon is now in mortal danger. The jaguar within her has been unleashed, and she can no longer control it. Sex is the only thing that can tame her shift. And Gray is the only man who can make her surrender to a passion strong enough to overpower her inner beast. But she doesn’t want to surrender—she wants her life back. Because she is determined never to belong to anyone, especially not Gray—the male whom destiny claims is her mate…

Allow me to begin by saying that Laura Wright is one of my favorite authors! I LOVE the “Mark of the Vampire” series and have been eagerly awaiting Gray’s story from the very beginning! Though “Eternal Beast”, the fourth book in the series, can be read as a standalone book, I would definitely suggest you read the entire series from start to finish! It truly is a fantastic series! This includes the e-novella “Eternal Blood”, which I recommend you read before “Eternal Beast”. Again, just a suggestion as it will provide you with some background information.
In “Eternal Beast”, the relationship between Gray and Dillon is still extremely intense. They continue to fight, not only with each other, but also their own feelings, their past and the Eternal Order. We get to watch them take steps towards each other and some giant leaps away. But the journey is all worth the wait.
I was extremely happy at the fact that we got to see the family dynamic of the Roman Brothers. And yes, there’s plenty of sarcastic, smart ass Luca to go around! Which I LOVED!!! He is my favorite after all! We also get to meet the newest members of the family, the mutore. I can see the importance of family for the brothers and understand where Laura comes from when she says they are like family to her as well! You get attached. It can’t be helped!
As with the previous books in the series, you’ll get hot, sexy vampires, romance, action and yes extremely steamy, erotic sex scenes! The ‘Writer Lady” has a talent to get you all hot and bothered!! It’s a gift!! One I’m extremely grateful she not only possesses but shares with the world!!
There’s much come in the MOTV world. We got to know a lot more in this book, and with new characters; the possibilities of what’s to come are endless. Now, we patiently must wait for the next installment. Sigh…..
Rating: 5 – A toast to absolute perfection!
