His mind has been set on his work for the past one hundred years. Now a forbidden beauty has stolen his attention and is threatening to steal his heart too.
Callum has come to the city of romance on business, not pleasure, but when he sets eyes on a gorgeous werewolf in a nightclub, he can’t ignore the dark carnal craving she ignites in him. His work for Vampirerotique, the erotic theatre he runs with three other vampires, can wait. The only thing that matters now is satisfying his sinful hunger for a woman who most vampires would consider an enemy.
Kristina is on the run from her pack. Her alpha is intent on forcing her to bear his child and she’s not about to live through the same nightmare as her mother had. When a tall, dark and sexy vampire catches her eye, she can’t believe the ferocity of the desire he unleashes in her or the fact that she enjoys the feel of his eyes on her and his silent pursuit of her in the clubs each night.
When Kristina finally gets a taste of Callum in a forbidden kiss, will she be strong enough to resist the allure of the vampire and his offer to share his bed for a week of unbridled, wild sex, or will she surrender to her own craving for the safety and passion she finds in his embrace?
Crave is the second book in the Vampire Erotique Theatre Series, and it held up to my expectations. One thing that I’ve enjoyed with Crave and also with the first book, Covet, is the conquering of forbidden love and just how sweet the heroes are.
Callum has been sent to Paris in search for new acts for the theater, when he comes across a female that captivates him. Callum is very dedicated to his work, but his is so drawn to her that he shuns his duties to follow her from club to club each night, but he never approaches her. Kristina knows he’s watching her and she finds herself intrigued. She kind of puts on a show for him and it make me think of Dirty Dancing with vampires and werewolves. After a steamy round in a curtained off booth, Callum invites her to spend his last week in Paris with him.
Kristina’s got some baggage and fears that she really struggles with. Kristina is currently ripe for mating, aka fertile and she has run away from her pack because the pack alpha wanted to claim and impregnate her. She fears sharing the same fate as her mother and being ditched once pregnant and having to be a single parent. She vowed to avoid interacting with any werewolves in order to minimize the chance of being turned back over to her pack or having another alpha try to mate with her.
Callum and Kristina make such a sweet and wicked pair. And I love how Callum is the one more open and honest about his feelings and works to wear Kristina down. Whenever their relationship moves beyond lust and desire to more tender emotions, Kristina gets skittish, but Callum is not about to give up. Their passion is sizzling and they are quite inventive in the numerous ways they demonstrate their desire for each other. I loved getting to see the other characters we met in Covet, although, I wished they could have been in the book more then they were. Overall, Crave is short, sweet, and definitely captivating.
