#1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan returns to her uniquely sensual Carpathian world in a novel about the nature of true love and the unnatural forces that could destroy it...
Manolito De La Cruz knew he was dangerously close to turning into a vampire. The last thing he expected after being called back to his Carpathian homeland by Prince Mikhail was to catch the scent of his destined lifemate in MaryAnn Delaney. MaryAnn is human, but she knows all too well the overwhelmingly aggressive instincts of Carpathian males. And they're not exactly the kind of men she'd prefer to be bound to for life.
A dedicated counselor for battered women, MaryAnn has a fulfilling life with no room for someone like Manolito, born and bred in the Carpathian mountains, a law unto himself. But when MaryAnn agrees to go to South America to offer guidance to a brutalized young woman, she has no idea of the trap that awaits her in the sweltering thick of the jungle. She has been lured there by Manolito himself, who has seductive plans for the unaware, irresistibly human female...

About the Author
Christine Feehan is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Carpathian series, the GhostWalker series, the Leopard series, the Shadow Riders series, and the Sea Haven novels, including the Drake Sisters series and the Sisters of the Heart series.
Bestseller Feehan's steamy and dreamy 18th Carpathian novel (after 2006's Dark Celebration) explores the erotic allure of ancient shape-shifters, Brazilian rain forests and vampires. Manuel "Manolito" De La Cruz, one of those dark, irresistible Carpathian hunks who can only thrive with one woman by his side, has found his life mate in MaryAnn Delaney, a Seattle counselor for battered women who flies to his Brazilian family compound to help a pregnant rape victim. It takes a while for MaryAnn to accept Manolito's love, as Feehan, with her usual expertise, draws out the foreplay between the two. Feverish jungle encounters with Jaguar-men and MaryAnn's shocking discovery of her inner werewolf add spice, while growing tensions in the Carpathian world create other problems. Feehan's combo platter of danger, fantasy and wild, uninhibited romance continues to sizzle. (Aug.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
Fighting for his life in a South American jungle and struggling against the vampires who would claim him, Carpathian Manolito De La Cruz knows one thing: he has a life mate and only she can save him. Empathetic counselor MaryAnn Delaney is that woman, but even when she realizes they are linked, and she touches Manolito's mind, she's not about to tie herself to someone that difficult and dangerous. But Manolito has other ideas, and when MaryAnn is drawn to him in South America, he is determined to possess her completely. This dark, chilling read continues Feehan's Carpathian series about the De La Cruz brothers. Fans will be delighted. Feehan (Safe Harbor) writes in a variety of paranormal subgenres from her home in Lake County, CA. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
Praise for Christine Feehan and her Carpathian novels "The queen of paranormal romance! The one who started it all! The erotic, gripping series that has defined an entire genre. I love everything she does."--J. R. Ward, #1 New York Times bestselling author "After Bram Stoker, Anne Rice and Joss Whedon (who created the venerated Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Christine Feehan is the person most credited with popularizing the neck gripper."--Time "Feehan has a knack for bringing vampiric Carpathians to vivid, virile life in her Dark Carpathian novels."--Publishers Weekly "Red-hot romance and great storytelling...a treat you can't refuse...Thrill-a-minute fantasy with complex characters and a story that captivates from beginning to end."--Fresh Fiction
