Human Paige Sloan once loved werewolf Drake Wyler more than life, but then that life was taken away from her. Attacked by vampires, Paige was bitten, and, on a cold, dark night, the life she’d known ended. She was reborn as a vampire—a werewolf’s deadliest enemy.
Paige ran from the vampires who attacked her, and she ran away from her lover. She didn’t want Drake to know what she’d become, and she didn’t want to face the fury of his pack. But a girl can only run for so long until the past catches up with her.
Some sins mark your soul.
When Paige learns that Drake is being targeted for death, she knows that she can’t hide in the shadows any longer. She has to return to him, and she will do anything—anything—in order to make sure that he keeps living. The vampires might have destroyed her chance to live and love Drake, but they won’t take him. Not over her undead body. She’ll slay them all…and maybe, just maybe…she’ll even have the chance to sin—one more time--with the werewolf who’d marked her as his mate.
Some sins are worth dying for…
This was a quick read but I did enjoy the forbidden love story between a vampire and a werewolf. I really felt for Paige, who was human but because of a betrayal was turned into a vampire, effectively taking her away from her love, her mate, Drake. After 10 years she returns to ask for his help and though it had been a long time and Drake is angry with her for disappearing all those years, he's still in love with her.
I would have loved it if this story had been longer but at the same time, you are given enough information to get you into the story and you learn everything necessary to reach a satisfying conclusion.
One thing that confused me at first was it almost seemed as if Paige was trying to say that she, herself, was a werewolf until I realized that whenever she'd reference "wolf" she was referring to Drake. Once I realized that, it was no longer confusing.
The fight scenes were well done and the love scenes were hot! I definitely will have to check out more of Cynthia Eden's books.
