Raised by the Breed, Nicholas Roman wants to stop the Eternal Order of Vampires from controlling his life, and using other males from his bloodline-including possibly his son-for their vicious reign. Only a beautiful vampire stranger can help him. But what are her true motives?
The mystery and action just continues to build in the second book of Laura Wright's Mark of the Vampire series, as does the passion and danger. After reading the first book, I begged a friend to lend me her copy of this book. I just had to continue on with the Roman brothers. All three have their demons to battle but Nicholas seems to take his to the next level. Complex and dangerous, Nicholas Roman is one of the most tortured characters I've ever met. He has a past he isn't proud of and a present he will kill to keep a secret.
Just as secretive is Kate, the female vampire who shows up at his door step with a young boy in tow. An unjust decision and a harsh punishment have shaped Kate into a tough as nails, "I-don't-need-anyone" character that I just loved.
While Nicholas' secret was revealed early on in Eternal Kiss and causes him such pain and anguish, Kate's reason for her punishment isn't, creating and building curiosity until almost the end, when she reveals her secret to Nicholas in hopes of helping him begin to forgive himself and let go of who he thinks he is.
If you're hoping for a deep, dark, destructive secret as bad a Nicholas' from Kate, you're in for a bit of a disappointment though. Her punishment was worse than her crime.
In between the reluctant relationship budding between Nicholas and Kate, are glimpses of Lucian, the youngest Roman brother and in my opinion, the most interesting. He's such a jerk but you can't help but love him, and Gray, the brother of Sara who is mated to Alexander (Eternal Hunger).
The amazing sexual tension and steamy scenes that made Eternal Hunger a great book are present in Eternal Kiss and then some. If you don't stop and fan yourself after Nicholas and Kate's, um, "meeting" in the club bathroom then there's something seriously wrong with you my friend.
