Shawna is part white witch/part vampire, and her cruel vampire father, Pentim, is trying to find her. Raised by her grandparents after her mom’s death, Shawna is on the run while her witch grandmother and wizard grandfather are in hiding.
Chad is an immortal with a direct family line to Dracula. He has a vendetta against Pentim and plans to use Shawna as bait, so he can kill her father. Chad knows all her secrets, and since she refuses to help him, he harasses her until she breaks down and agrees.
Shawna is an interesting character. She’s strong, determined to survive and fight her evil father, and she protects the ones she cares for by staying away from them. She’s torn between lusting after Chad and keeping her distance from him. She’s both mad and happy when he kisses her, but then she’s mad and relieved when he ignores her.
Chad is arrogant, secretive, and controlling. I couldn’t connect with him. He refuses to answer Shawna’s questions and keeps her in the dark when her life is in danger. He expects her to trust and listen to him without explanations. Even though she’s a powerful witch, he doesn’t treat her like an equal and invades her privacy to the point of stalking.
The book is told in third person, mostly in Shawna’s POV, with some head-hopping. Chad, Pentim, and a few other characters occasionally have scenes in their POV with proper scene and chapter breaks. There is a lot of repetition (characters thinking and then saying the same thing again and again). The pacing is a little slow, especially in the flashback scenes.
I liked the overall plot that deals with Dracula’s history and Chad’s connection to him. There’s an interesting subplot about an electrical demon. Damon, Shawna’s vampire friend, is totally yummy. I enjoyed the story for the most part, but Chad’s controlling ways frustrated me.
3 Stars

Almost Romance with no plot. Not my kind of book.

Not badly written, but slightly repetitive and barely a plotline apart from the instant attraction between the main characters, neither of whom I greatly cared for.

Had potential. Loved the beginning. Fell Flat quickly. Took forever to get anywhere and No Sex scenes. Just a lot of build up.

The last book I read by this author I gave five stars, but this one doesn't even earn half as much. Sad to say, it started out really well, especially an entertaining episode with rum smugglers, in which the h, Cassandra, participated. (Jack, both captain and King of smugglers, was such an appealing character I wish more of the story had been about him.) There was also mystery, intrigue, drug addiction, mistaken identity, workers' rights, rioting, criminals, spies, and the usual love/hate banter between the h and H, but alas, the story did not live up to its potential, as all these incidents got too bogged down and drawn out. And the same goes for the romantic misunderstandings, that went from entertaining to annoying by the middle of the book.

The biggest problem was the h, who was too self-centered and annoying, despite her sympathy for the poor and downtrodden, and her "adopting" a hunchback orphan boy. She could also be TSTL, like when she trusts a strange gypsy man enough to go into the woods with him to water their horses by a stream, and almost gets raped. She also has the annoying habit of running away from the H when things get tough, missing him like crazy, then acting bitchy when he finds her, despite wanting to get naked with him. She acts cold and snarky, does the opposite of what he wants her to every time, just to show him up, keeps threatening to cheat on him, and then wonders why he doesn't love her? I can give you a few hundred reasons! Not to mention how jealous and angry she gets when he kisses another woman, yet she kisses another man, but that's okay. Hypocrite, thy name's Cassandra!

As for the H, Viscount Kirkby, for someone who's supposed to be sophisticated, he sure can act like a bumpkin! He suspects Cassandra of being responsible for his stepbrother Peter's death without any real proof, seduces her anyway, despite his not trusting her and wanting to keep distance, ends up marrying her (in one of the best scenes in the book, too bad it slid downhill right after) and lusting after her, yet can't trust her, though she seems good, but must be bad, on and on ad nauseum. It never occurred to this jackass to be honest with her about his background and talk about Peter and then take it from there? Instead, he's often aloof and evasive, which makes Cassandra angry and rebellious, and it never occurs to him that she'll run away yet again? Well. DUH!!!

When you get to the point when you couldn't care less if the couple drops dead, then you know it's time to read another book.

It's time to read another book!
