Lucian Roman knows he must stay away from Bronwyn Kettler for sanity's sake. Since feeding her his blood, he can think of nothing else but possessing her—fighting an uncontrollable desire to kill her, if he has to, and the vampire she has sworn to wed.
Bronwyn, a brilliant vampire genealogist, can never escape her connection to Lucian. He sustained her when she was starving. He still rules her dreams. And when the nights get dark enough, she still craves him. Though is essence courses through her body, she has found a true mate in someone else.
But when a dangerous enemy threatens Bronwyn, only Lucian—bound to her forever by blood—can save her life. Even if it means sacrificing his own.
Review by Lynelle:
Lucian Roman is destined to become the next Breeding Male, as his father was. The Breeding Male is like an animal controlled by his hunger and desires and the need to spread his seed is so strong that he will take any female around, even it if means rape. Lucian appears to accept that this is his fate, but would rather die than become an animal and a danger to others. And if he can just keep himself from having sex with Bronwyn (which would trigger this gene due to having shared his blood with her) he’d be fine, except that he wants her sooo bad.
Oh Luca, I absolutely loved him from the beginning with his smart-ass attitude. He tries to put on a hard front, like he doesn’t care in order to keep those around him safe. Underneath his sarcastic, arrogant, I don’t give a f#*% façade he is very caring and very self sacrificing. I’ve liked Bronwyn since she was introduced in the first book. She is strong and doesn’t back down to Lucian when he is trying to intimidate her. As much as she tries to prevent herself from becoming a “victim” of the Breeding Male and they both try to fight their desire for each other, the evil bad guy has other plans and forces them together. With everything against them, they are just so drawn to each other that they can’t fight desire any longer and they are so great together.
Eternal Captive is the 3rd book in the Mark of the Vampire series by Laura Wright. I absolutely am hooked to this series and could not put any of the books down and in my opinion each book just gets better. If you haven’t read the first 2 books in this series Eternal Hunger and Eternal Kiss, I’d absolute would do that first. As those books are based around Lucian’s brothers Alex and Nicky you are given a look at how Lucian and Bronwyn’s relationship begins and everything that has led this group of characters to the point they are at in Eternal Captive. I loved the side stories with the new characters that were introduced and there’s a great little twist at the end to set up for the next book Eternal Beast, I just can’t wait!! Also the next book is about Gray and I heart him ;)
