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 need be, 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 his essence still 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…
Lucian never makes things easy. I learned this about him the very first time I heard him speak in Eternal Hunger. He's cocky, stubborn and incredibly rude... But he's also smart, brave and loyal to his brothers. He takes a while to grow on you if you're not used to crude statements and what I call "smart-assery" but since I am and I love sarcasm, I took to Lucian right away. It took a bit to get around to reading his story, and the wait made the anticipation and expectations grow and grow. When I was finally able to begin Eternal Captive I was nervous. I began to wonder if I had built this idea in my head about the white haired, albino vampire that author Laura Wright wouldn't be able to meet.
I'm such a silly bean! Laura Wright not only met the expectations I had but surpassed them as well. It's going to be hard to top Lucian because he's been added to my list of absolute favorite alpha males ever.
Definitely a character you won't soon forget, Lucian is a tormented, ruthless, smart ass with a tender heart who is fighting his deepest fears: That his destiny is to become the mindless beast his sire was. The Breeding Male who's only instinct will be to breed with any and all females who come across him, willing or not. He can be borderline unlikeable to some people but to this reader, his prickly, asshole demeanor was what made him more interesting as a character and more deserving of a happy ending than others.
Eternal Captive also introduces readers to some new characters, Syn for example. Have I mentioned that not only am I a vampire lover but a British man makes me swoon? Yeah, it's a double whammy.
Then there are the mutore, who up until now, have just been described as abominations who are not worthy of life. Eternal Captive not only revealed more about the mutore but gave them names, histories and began to create sympathy for these misunderstood creatures. I can't wait to learn more about them.
With this book I've begun noticing a pattern with the entire series, and correct me if I'm wrong but each book is sexier and more erotic than the last and if Laura Wright keeps this up, I'm going to spontaneously combust. There's only so much a girl can take you know. Eternal Captive should have come with a warning label that read: "May cause spontaneous combustion or incoherent babbling. Author is not responsible for ice or fan shortages in your city."
That said, if you've been reading my reviews on this series but haven't gotten around to reading it, what the heck are you waiting for? A personal invitation?! Get these books ASAP and enjoy! I know I am :)
