Review: Seared by Desire

Title: Seared by Desire

Author: Jennifer T. Alli

Publication date: December 12th 2010

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Source: Received from author.

My Rating: 8/10


A cold heart…
For centuries Lucian has battled on two fronts. Defeating the Malachites, all that stand between him and becoming King of the vampires and the demon within himself, battling desperately for release. His attention stretched thin he has no time for women but Sara, his fiery bride won’t be denied.

A burning touch…
With a deadly curse hanging over her head, Sara knows her time is short. Placing her life in Lucian's hands is a risk she knows she must take and one her innocent heart gladly makes for Lucian makes her body burn and her soul fly.

Never had hot and cold reacted so combustively.
Sara’s presence pushes Lucian to the brink of madness, her nearness making him crazed with the need for her blood. Though his fangs ache with longing, to bite her could condemn them both but the attraction between them is too strong to be denied. As they race headlong towards a fiery conclusion will they emerge unscathed to will the flames of desire consume them both?

My thoughts:

This a great read about a fire elemental, Sara, who is shunned from both her family and community for being powerless. However, things soon change when Sara discovers she is cursed and that only one certain vampire can keep her alive.

I think the best thing about this novel is the characters. Lucian, the Lord of the vampires, is a strong character from the start - completely unselfish with only his people in mind, a strong warrior and to top it all off he's completely irresistible.

The plot was full of desperation, anxiety and a few battle scenes so it had a little bit of everything. It had a perfect ending which definitely leaves you wanting more from the author. Definitely a recommended read!
